Academic Year 2017~18
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Welcome to the class page for Year 3. Here you will find out about all the great things we have been up to at school. Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

With the celebrations of the Holy Spirit that come as part of Pentecost we have been taking a closer look at the Fruits of the Spirit.
This time we have been discussing Joy and Faithfulness.
Joy means you are happy like when you get a treat. You would be joyful when Jesus rose from the dead. God wants us to be joyful because he wants us to be happy. I show joy by skipping and having a smile all of the time. I try to make others joyful when they're sad.
Faithfulness is a great quality to have. This Fruit of the Spirit means you have so much trust in someone. For example if I said I will meet you at 4pm and you trusted I would then that's faithfulness. Jesus wants us to behave like this so that we have a lot of faith in people and hopefully we all trust in each other. I show this in my daily life because I always trust in God and Jesus. They are very kind and help me to stay calm when I am upset.
Joy is the Fruit of the Spirit that means to be happy. Jesus wants us to be happy because it is part of our human nature. I'm happy in my daily life when I play the guitar.
Faithfulness means you believe in someone or you trust them, it's a bit like being loyal. We have faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus wants us to have faithfulness because someone might tell you a secret and they don't want you to tell anyone. If you do, you could hurt their feelings. I show faithfulness by praying to God.
Joy means to be happy. Jesus wants me to be happy everyday. I show joy by smiling at my friends and family.
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.
As part of Advent we have been thinking about those who are less fortunate than ourselves this time of year. We created some hopes for those people that might come true at Christmas. Here are a few.
I hope people without a home find somewhere warm to stay when it is cold.
I hope that the children without much money get lots of presents from Santa.
I hope homeless people find a place to live.
I hope that starving people in poor countries get some food to eat and water to drink.
I hope that nobody is lonely at Christmas.
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.
Academic Year 2016 - 2017
Welcome back to the new half term. Year 3 will be learning, loving and laughing together this half term as we get ready for Christmas.
Please ensure you pack a warm hoody/jumper for your child should we have outdoor P.E or they take part in football club.
Our topic this half term is The Stone Age. We recently spent some time in a cave telling stories and creating cave paintings.

We would like to welcome back year 3 ready for an exciting school year in KS2. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
