News from Year 3

And hello half term! What a half term it has been. We are so glad to have welcomed you back properly after so many weeks of remote learning 🙂

This week, we have been focusing on the story of Ulf, the finger eating troll. We have been using lots of role play to help learn the story. We loved reading how the troll gets tricked by a local village girl, Gudrun. The children are now looking forward to rewriting one of the chapters of the book after half term, describing how they would out-smart Ulf.

In PE, we have been focusing on triple jumping. We started off by looking at a series of basic jumps and then used games and activities to help bring these jumps together. We then used three of these jumps to perform a triple jump. It wasn’t as easy as it looked!

In RE, we have been enjoying our new topic, Choices. We have used the learning from our Holy Communion classes to help us learn about the sacrament, reconciliation. This has linked well to our learning about the story of the Prodigal Son.

Have a fun and restful half term,

Miss Battams and Ms McCarthy 🙂
