Life is as busy as ever in year 3! We have started our swimming lessons in PE and the children have all been great ambassadors for the school when walking to and from the pool and have been very keen and enthusiastic in the water. We are now well and truly in the swing of our summer production and hopefully the children have been sharing some of the songs at home when they have been practising their words.
In English we have been reading Charlotte's Web and last week the children created some 'wax resist' spider web art and then wrote instructions describing how to recreate the process. They have laso produced lots of drama and 'hot seating' exploring the relationship between the characters and how they are feeling at different points in the story. Next week they will be writing persuasive letters to one of the characters in the story to try and save Wilbur!
In maths we have been spending a long time investigating fractions and looking at equivalent fractions, as well as looking at different methods for solving multiplication calculations. The children have also been enjoying our science topic looking at light and shadows - although a few more sunny days for outside experiments would be nice!
Finally, congratulations to all the children who made their first Holy communion over the past few weeks - you have all been wonderful and we have loved sharing this special day with you all. We look forward to when the final three children from 3W will be making their first communion at Our Lady of Lourdes, next Saturday.
