Academic Year 2017~18

   

  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.   

(Romans 12:12)

 

 

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.

 

Mr Beaumont, Mrs Erinaugha, Miss McHale.

 

 

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.

                                                           Mairead

 

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.

                                                           Sebastian

 

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.

                                                           Leron

 

Joy means to be happy. Jesus wants me to be happy everyday. I show joy by smiling at my friends and family.

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.

Well done to the children who made their First Sacrament of Reconciliation this week. The children were all polite and reverent and made all who were involved extremely proud of them as they continue on their Christian journey.

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.

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.

                                                      Jevon

 

I hope that the children without much money get lots of presents from Santa.

                                                       Ella

 

I hope homeless people find a place to live.

                                                       Benjamin

 

I hope that starving people in poor countries get some food to eat and water to drink.

                                                       Eve

 

I hope that nobody is lonely at Christmas.

                                                       Matthias

 

 

                                                     

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.
