Sorry for the late post, but I wanted to make sure that I uploaded all the pictures from today to show you what a muddy but wonderful time we all had! Wow, today has definitely been the highlight of our week… we all had the best time, despite the wet weather! In the morning the children worked together so cooperatively to build their shelters as the early Stone Age men would have done. There was lots of little extra touches as well that were added, such as fires, chairs and some very impressive entrances. I am sure you are impressed by the photographs. Then all the children, used flints to begin their own fires, which was then safely put out by heat proof gloves- they were all super sensible! We then had the opportunity to get dry inside while we had our lunch, until is was back to the forest to play some hunting games! What a day!
What a wonderful week of learning we have had in Year 3! The children have been such Bobby Bee’s, showing great enthusiasm in their lessons and eager to learn as much as they can. We have really enjoyed our Maths lessons this week, as they have been such a challenge and Year 3 clearly love to grow their brains!
I cannot believe we are coming to the end of our 4th week- time flies when you are having fun! The children are working so hard, showing great enthusiasm and rising to the challenges Year 3 brings! In RE we have been discussing what is meant by our Christian family and what all our parish has to offer, before starting today to look at the Sacrament of Baptism, which is how we join our Christian family.
What a wonderful week in Year 3 we have had, especially as the sun has been shining! I don’t know how, but we have managed to fit a lot of learning in to just one week, which shows just how focused and settled the children are in Year 3. This week we have had our first music lesson with Mrs Mallinson, we have had french with Madam Jefferson and of course Art yesterday with Mrs Curtis.

To continue the leadership theme that Year 6 have started, on Friday, they celebrated mass with other Year 6 children from our deanery schools. This was a very special time when all the children were asked to consider the responsibility of being a disciple of Christ. Fr Peter reminded them that just as Christ is the light of the world, they too are called to be lights for others.
