The children enjoyed listening to the story about Rama and Sita. Afterwards they made a start on their Diwali artwork.
Watch this space for pictures of the finished artwork!!!
This week we have been learning about Lithuania. A big THANK YOU to Daniels mum and Aurelia/Vilas mum. They both very kindly, gave us some traditional Lithuanian food to try in class.
Year 3 had an enjoyable morning on grandparents day. They all spent the morning making harvest crafts.
Other Faith Week - Judaism
As part of Other Faith Week, Year 3 visited the Beth Hamidrash Hagadrol Synagogue in Meanwood.We learnt lots of interesting things about Judaism. In class we attempted to make our own paper dreidels - a traditional game played during Hanukkah.
Year 3 Class Mass
Year 3 took part in the first class Mass of this school year. Fr. Gerrard led the service providing the children with the opportunity to reflect upon the gifts they all have. The reading from St Paul's letter to the Romans emphasised this point by stating:
'All of us, in union with Christ, from one body, and as parts of it we belong to each other. Our gifts differ according to the grace given to us.'
Year 3 were reverent throughout and are looking now to the new year when they will be making their first Sacrament of Reconciliation.
