We Are Growing in Christ
Year 3 children may join Mrs Jones to pray the rosary throughout October. October is dedicated to praying this special prayer which was so dear to Our Lady. We shared quiet reflective moments as we learnt to pray together. We continue to learn and say this prayer at special moments in our parish. We were all invited to bring our rosary beads to school for an assembly to end November, the month in which we especially remember our deceased friends and family. May they Rest in the Peace of the Lord.
Year 3 are Reading Wizards!
To complete our Year 3 Reading Challenge, we need to read ten books from the Reading Challenge Box. Look out for these books as they have special stickers. There are a selection of books from different authors and different genres.
If we succeed and read all ten, we will be presented with a certificate and badge at the end of the year. If any of the books are too challenging, then they can be shared at home as a family book. Look at the Year 3 badge below.
Year 3 are Musicians!
Our Autumn Term Musical Learning
Year 3 will learn to listen to and appreciate reggae music this term.
Year 3 are Linguists!
We begin learning French in year 3 by listening and speaking. We spoke this week about France and listened to and repeated French words. The sound j makes is different in French. Some Polish children realised it sounds quite like a Polish j. It has a soft sound whereas j in English has a hard sound. We learned to repeat a greeting and to say our names. Bonjour, je m'appelle.....
This week we extended our challenge to repeat the sound "r" makes in French. It is quite difficult but with practice we will soon be speaking like French people. Some children challenged themselves to recognised greetings and instructions. We managed very well. Keep up the hard work year 3.
We continue our lessons every two weeks in junior school.
