Today, we put our skills into practice! Each pupil had to defend the ball from their opponent and as you can imagine, it was a very competitive game. Well done Y3!
Drama Role Play! Today we have been exploring how structure contributes to the meaning of the fiction poem ‘At the End of the School Day’. We have been looking at Haiku’s, rhyming couplets and the structure of each Stanza. We are the future OLSK Poets! 🥳
The Parable of the Prodigal Son. Luke 15:11-32. ✝️ We have been exploring the act of forgiveness in preparation to make our Sacrament of Reconciliation.
We are the HUNTER GATHERERS! During today’s EBL lesson, the children became real-life hunter gatherers by hunting Stone Age animals and gathering food from the Neolithic period. Back in the classroom, we made comparisons between houses in the Stone Age and the Modern day. Did you know that they didn’t have windows in 800,000BC? 🛖🏠
We are very busy in Y3, preparing to make our Sacrament of Reconciliation. We have explored the choices we make and have written Prayers to God to celebrate our God-given talents and gifts. Well done Y3, you are reverent! 🙏🏻
Slipping and sliding through our Science curriculum 🧲 We have been finding out which surface is the most slipperiest by measuring the force needed, using the Newton Meters! We also discovered which surface had the least friction and we even lost a few shoes along the way!
BRILLIANT BEGINNINGS! 🛖 We had the wonderful Tablet Academy come in today. Through VR, we became Archaeologists searching and digging for evidence about Prehistory!
TIMESTABLES ROCKSTARS! Today, we launched TT Rockstars. We created our own avatars and began our journey to becoming speedy masters of times tables 🥳
KEEPING ACTIVE! 🏀 Today, we had an active PE lesson where we focused on developing our throwing & catching skills. The children also made cross curricular links between the skills of throwing and the scientific concept of using the force of pushing to move the ball. This linked perfectly to our Forces and Magnets Science topic.
WORKING SCIENTIFICALLY! We have been setting up comparative tests this week to discover the act of force. We looked at pushes & pulls within our learning environment. Then, the children set up a fair test to compare how a toy car moves on 3 different surfaces. We being scientists!
We have been getting up to all things Maths this week by recognising the place value of 3-digit numbers using our hundreds, tens and ones dienes! 🔢

Family, Friends and Others!
Through the ‘Life to The Full’ scheme, we have learnt and discussed ways to maintain positive relationships. We have spoken about our own families, the friendships we establish and the importance of being truthful and eloquent in order to maintain positive relationships with others.
