Year 3

Welcome to Year 3 at Holy Family.

Please take a look at everything we have been doing so far this year. 

Fantastic France

Fantastic France 1
Fantastic France 2

Year Three have began their topic called 'Fantastic France!'

So far, we have made croissants which were delicious and tried a variety of French cuisine including: baguettes, onion soup, camembert cheese and blue cheese! The children loved it (maybe not the blue cheese).

We have also been exploring facts about the Eiffel Tower including how tall it is. We tried to create out own scaled down version of the Tower using spaghetti and marshmallows. The children did a great job not only building their structures but working as teams.

The children loved making their own decorations for our class Jesse tree. We read the different stories together and discussed the symbols and why they linked to the different stories. It was a great way to help us wait during Advent.

As part of Judaism week, Year Three loved learning about Hannukah and the special Jewish festivals. They each made their own Menorah and discovered it's secret meaning!

Year Three have enjoyed learning about the Church's Liturgical Year
