Year Three had a wonderful day celebrating Pentecost. They learnt all about the special gifts given to us from the Holy Spirit and shared them with the school.
Year Three have enjoyed joining the other schools in the Hallam Diocese to celebrate the feast of the Ascension by gathering for a live Mass.
Year Three have loved reading their class text 'Buried Alive' by Jacqueline Wilson.
Join Miss Elstub at 2pm every Monday and 2:30pm Tuesday-Friday on TEAMS to listen to the next chapter.
I wonder what will happen next for Tim and his family... it definitely isn't the quiet holiday he expected....

Year Three really enjoyed creating their wooly hat Christmas decorations for Enterprise week. They completed everything completely independently from start to finish and even wrote instructions to follow if anyone else wanted to make the same item.
Anti- Bullying Week
To help introduce Anti- bullying week, the children came into school wearing odd socks. This led to discussions about how it is ok to be different and how we are all unique. The children also enjoyed creating their own friendship poems.
For our Black History learning this year, the children has a very thought provoking discussion about black celebrities and superheroes and what changes need to be made for everyone to feel more equal.
They then went on to explore Martin Luther King Jr and create their own 'I have a dream' speeches. The children really enjoyed sharing their ideas and opinions.
Year Three helped to commemorate Remembrance day by making their own poppies to add to the school display. They also rewrote the Kit Wright poem 'I will put in the box,' but focused on what we would put in a special box to remember the people who died for us in battle. The children spent time outside next to our 'Flanders field' to remember and reflect through prayer.
Please find weekly homework and updates on our class Dojo page every Friday. This is also where you can contact Miss Hodby.
