International week


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.















Grandparents day


Year 3 had an enjoyable morning on grandparents day.  They all spent the morning making harvest crafts.






















In Science we are studying the growth, pollination and reproduction of plants. We disected a tulip so we could see first-hand the male and female parts of a plant.

Erupting Volcanoes!!! We made some volcanoes in Art then recreated a volcanic eruption through a chemical reaction.

In Geography we have been studying the more extreme side of our planet. We have looked closer at the planet and the different layers that are under our feet.

In Science we have been looking at the different push and pull forces that act upon us in everyday life. Here are some of our freeze frames of forces in action.

As part of our Geography topic of Western Europe, we have studied the differing cultures. We sampled some of their culinary delights.

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 have had their baking heads on. We have created some egg-less cookies.

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.











International Week! We studied the country of Iraq and learnt lots of interesting information. Here are some pictures from our assembly.

Year 3 have been exploring the scientific topic of rocks and soil. As part of this we became paleontologists and went on a fossil hunt!

Year 3 have been in the kitchen this week, cooking up some tasty snacks. We created some Mexican cuisine by making turkey enchiladas!
