We had a great day at MOSI, the Museum of Science and Industry, in Manchester. We had fun in the experiment area, visited some old engines and explored the history of aeroplanes. We also attended a brilliant Magic show session where we learnt about tricks of the light...one child even got their head chopped off!
We are amazing achievers in class...and also outside of school! Remember to bring in any trophies or certificates to share with the class, we love celebrating as a team.
Come and See
Our current topic in Come and See is Pentecost. We have considered the power of fire and wind and how the disciples might have felt when 'tongues of fire' landed on them. We wrote our ideas on our very own (paper) flames.
You can read about Pentecost yourself in the book of Acts, chapter two.
The Ascension of Jesus
We learnt about the Ascension of Jesus and considered how the disciples might have felt when their friend left them. We acted out our thoughts in a drama activity. Have a look at some of the pictures below.
You can read about the Ascension of Jesus yourself in the book of Luke, chapter 24.
50 Then he led them out of the city as far as Bethany, where he raised his hands and blessed them. 51 As he was blessing them, he departed from them and was taken up into heaven. 52 They worshiped him and went back into Jerusalem, filled with great joy, 53 and spent all their time in the Temple giving thanks to God.
Luke 24:50-53 (GNT)
We learn lots of different things in our maths lessons. A key focus for Year Three is to learn the four and eight times tables. There is a link to the eight times table song at the bottom of this page.
We like to learn in practical ways, both in and outside the classroom. Below are some pictures from our maths challenge day.
We are currently learning about discussion texts. We have learnt how to write a balanced discussion that shows different viewpoints. The story of the three little pigs has helped us with this.
Do you think the wolf is good or bad? Why?
We we had a class discussion to try and decide. From this we concluded that the wolf should be set free!
We recently learnt about Paddington. Paddington is a bear from darkest Peru and his stories have been written by Michael Bond.
Which of the Paddington adventures is your favourite?
Paddington has been out and about. Keep looking here for pictures of his adventures both in and out of school.
We learnt a poem about smiling
We worked in groups to create actions for each part.
After this, we performed it as a class. Finally, we wrote our own poems about smiling and what makes us happy.
Look at our videos and pictures to see some of us performing the poem we learnt and one
of our own poems that we created.
In our current topic we are learning about plants. We are learning about the structure of plants, how they grow, pollination and the way seeds are dispersed. The pictures below show some outdoor lessons where we acted out how pollination occurs and a leaf hunt that we undertook on our school field.
At St Francis of Assisi we have lots of special events.
Here are pictures of some of those.
We had a great time at our Christmas party. Below are some pictures of some of the fun things we did.
We had lots of fun dressing up to raise money for Children in Need!
We had a fantastic visit to Liverpool Museum. We visited all areas of the museum and learnt even more about Egypt. It was a wonderful day for everyone in years three and four. Below are some pictures from our visit.
