About Our Year Group
Welcome to Class G and Class H where Mrs Turpin and Miss Dineen, together with Mrs Evans and Mrs Thornton aim to ensure the children are achieving their potential in all areas .
This is an exciting transitional year, one in which your child will encounter many new challenges and experiences in all aspects of the curriculum.
We know that your child will be looking forward to starting N.C swimming lessons as well as joining Junior clubs and activities.
As you are aware, this is a most important time in your child's spiritual development in which they will be preparing for and receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist in conjunction with your Parish.
We hope you enjoy looking at our fun filled photos.
During our local area study of Eltham we visited Eltham Palace and learnt about its historical significance
Year 3 children have been baking and using their maths skills to explore recipe quantities. It was lots of fun!
Holy Week Freeze Frames Class G
We thought about the events of Holy Week and, in small groups, created 'frozen pictures' of some key moments... can you tell which events are being depicted in each picture?
Class G visited the Life Bus Spring 2018
We have been learning about our amazing bodies in class and found out more about our major organs and how to look after them on the Life Bus
Class G - Stone Henge - 2017
While we were learning about Stone Henge, we had a go at building a model version ourselves!
Class G - using the laptops - 2017
We practised doubling and halving using an online game. Double 45? Double 36? Halve 150?
Class G - busy working - 2017
We were fascinated by magnets and tested their strength by seeing how long a chain of paperclips different magnets could hold.
Class H Jon Leigh Visit 2017
Jon Leigh came into our classroom to talk to us about Jewish synagogues and what Jewish people wear when they go to a synagogue. He showed us photos of the synagogue he goes to. We even sang a song in Hebrew!
Class G and H Stone Age Day 2017
We had a Stone Age visitor in Year 3. He told us about our ancestors and how clever they were. We learned how they survived in the Stone Age - before people could write, before they could use metal and way before technology! We enjoyed imagining how they would have hunted, too.
Class H Science 2017
We have been exploring magnets in Science. We investigated how many paper clips different types of magnets can hold in order to assess the strength of each magnet!
Class H Mass 2017
Class H visited the convent to take part in their class mass. All the children were involved and many parents came along, making it extra special. Well done to all the children.
Class G's Rock Buns 2017
Class G baked rock buns in the fabulous new school kitchen! We hoped they would look like rocks, not taste like them! We were very pleased with the results.
Class H Maths 2017
We have been working on multiplication for the past few weeks in Class H. We are now starting division. Have a look through our photos and see our experts at work!
The theme of our Mass was Baptism. During Mass, we renewed our Baptismal Promises and sang beautiful hymns that reminded us that we are part of the Christian family, called by God who loves us.
As part of our study of Rocks and Soils, we visited the Environmental Centre where we became Dirt Detectives! We looked carefully at different types of soil and learned how it is created. Later on we used it to paint!
Year 3 Mass
Year 3 were joined by friends and family for a mass in the convent with Father John.
Photos from our day at the Environmental Centre - being Dirt Detectives, then orienteering!.
Police Visit Class G
Police: The Police visited us this term. They talked to us about keeping safe and how they can help us.
Environmental Centre Class G
Environmental Centre: We spent a lovely day at the Environmental Centre. We studied different types of soil and tried orienteering.
Baptism Class G
Baptism: We visited Father John at our parish church. We took our baptismal candles and he lit them from the Paschal candle. We renewed our baptismal promises after we smelled oil of chrism and catachumens. It reminded us that we become part of the Christian family at our baptism.
Year 3 Police visit
The police came in to talk about their role in looking after our belongings and living by the law. Our children loved hearing about their jobs and trying on parts of their uniform.
Year 3 helped Arty Party create the tomb of a mummy! We took turns to build the tomb, paper mache it and paint it.
Class H started their Death Mask paintings. We used a template to help us with the outline before sketching in the main detail. We finished off the day by painting the gold parts with acrylic paints.
In Year 3 we have started taking part in Liturgical Dance. So far we have learnt that Liturgical Dance is a form of prayer where we can express our feelings through songs and movement.
YEAR 3 FIRST HOLY COMMUNION MASS 2014
The children celebrated their First Holy Communion by attending a mass at Christ Church on Wednesday 9th July. On arriving back in school they sat down to a celebratory snack.
Arty Party visited us in June and made ancient Egyptian canopic jars with us. There are four different heads on the jars, can you spot them? Jackal, human, falcon, baboon.
In the summer term we surveyed the traffic on Westmount Road and Glenure Road. We used our data to answer questions about different types of roads. We put our information onto graphs.
