Values & Virtues: Grateful and Generous
We are growing to be grateful for our own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with our gifts.
Year 3 Class Saint
St Theresa of Calcutta
Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun and missionary. She is famous for her charitable works and helping the poor, hungry and sick people of India. She founded the Missionaries of Charity, who ran over 500 missions worldwide. She was canonised as a Saint by the Catholic church in 2016. We celebrate her Saint day on 5th September
RE: This half term we will be studying the units
'Easter' and 'Prayer'
Our first unit explores the Story of Easter through the Story of Emmaus and the Story of Breakfast at the Shore. It is designed to help the children realise how the Apostles became aware of the presence of the Risen Christ in these events.
In our second unit we will learn about the prayer life of Jesus. We will examine and reflect on some of the ways in which Catholics pray and the signs and symbols associated with prayer.

GODS AND MORTALS
From nothingness came chaos; from chaos came air and water; from air and water came life. Then, rising majestically from the darkness, came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light. Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets. Meet Theseus, the hero, and Helen of Troy, the beautiful face that launched a thousand ships. Explore the terrains of Greece, where in pure blue skies, the Sun scorches waxen wings and melts the fortunes of Icarus and Daedalus. Then decide your own fate when a mysterious box is found and stirs your curious mind.
'Light,' as the title suggests, provides an all-around approach to discovering what light is and how it acts. The unit takes learners on a journey - from describing how light travels, to considering how light reflects off different surfaces and how shadows are formed. Different sources of light are also explored, from the sun to torches. Children get the opportunity to build their own torches and periscopes, as well as observe and measure the distance and angle that light travels..
A few reminders for children in school:
* Please bring a sturdy and clearly named water bottle into school every day.
* Please ensure your reading diary and book are in school every day. Remember to read at least three times each week to get a prize!
*Please ensure all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your name.
*This term we will be going swimming every Thursday afternoon. The children will need swimming costumes, a towel and a swimming hat and are permitted to wear P.E. uniform to school on Thursdays.
* Children will need to bring a healthy snack each day
