Welcome to Year 3 at Holy Family.

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

Our topic this term is Gods and Mortals. We have been exploring Ancient Greece and looking at the impact their civilisation has had on modern day life. 

We have explored Greek art and pottery, tasted some typical Greek foods (including spicy octopus) and had a go at building a mini temple to the Goddess Athena. During our Prime VR workshop, we took part in a virtual exploration of the Parthenon, Mount Olympus and Athens. 

We will also be going on a trip to Doncaster Museum and taking part in an Ancient Greek workshop before the Easter holidays.

We have been exploring myths and legends in English. We really enjoyed Theseus and the Minotaur and Perseus and Medusa and we are currently getting our teeth into the labours of Hercules.

This year we are taking part in the National Theatre's Let's Play initiative and will be putting on a production of Hercules and Phoebe later in the Spring term. 

Important information:

PE - PE is currently taught on Wednesday mornings so please ensure all children have PE kits in school. Jewellery must be removed for PE so if your child cannot remove their own earrings, please take them out before school. 

Homework - Homework is given out on Mondays and should be returned on Fridays. Homework club is available on Monday lunch times for children who are unable to complete it at home or who need some additional support. 

School uniform - We pride ourselves on the appearance of our children. Please help us to maintain this by ensuring all children attend in the correct uniform, including school shoes.
