Have a Merry Christmas

The last week of term has been very exciting in Year 3 but the children have still been busy in lessons.

In class this week, the children have been working hard to create a Christmas fact file. They have been shown how to safely use the internet on laptops and iPads to research information about Santa Claus, Santa’s reindeers, his elves and the history of Christmas trees. They then wrote about their findings and decorated their booklets, showing all their brilliant presentation skills. Below are photos of the children and their work.

During Maths, a challenge was set for the children to solve the mystery of which elf stole the Christmas pudding. They had to answer addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fraction problems, with the answers corresponding to either letters or words which then give them clues to the culprit. Happily, the offending elf was identified and caught.

It was so lovely to see so many Year 3 children taking part in the Christmas performance of The Snow Queen. All the children were a credit to themselves as they worked very hard to learn lines and remember their parts. Well done to Oliver, Lillie, Esha, Erin, Stan, Archie, Charlie, Harriet, Florrie, Hannah, Alex, Aaminah, Fatimah, Gursimran, Iman, Gabriella, Nuraniya, Khushi, Jacob, Olivia, Ashwin, Gracie, Alice, Phoebe, Isaac, Sophie, Nathan, Lucy and Abigail. I’m sure we have some future stars of stage and screen amongst us.

On Thursday afternoon the children had their Christmas party. There was some great dancing on display along with plenty of very sleepy lions. Many of the children showed how quickly they could eat chocolate with a knife and fork whilst wearing oven gloves, a woolly scarf and a Santa hat. They also showed how grateful they were for all the sandwiches, samosas, sausage rolls, crisps, biscuits, fruit and buns provided by eating as much as possible. Thank you for all the food provided, as we really appreciate the support you give us.

Finally, have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
