Welcome to Year 3 ‘Eagle class’
Our teacher is Mrs Baker and our teaching assistant is Mrs Knowles. The topics we will be learning about this year include ‘Tribal Tales’, ‘Mighty Metals’, ‘Heroes and Villains’, ‘Gods and Mortals’, ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’ and ‘Flow’. We are excited about launching into KS2 and the new challenges ahead. Our focus to start will be learning about how we best learn. We are looking forward to sharing our learning with you all on our class page.
In Term 1 we went to forest school and looked at the view.We closed our eyes and imagined we had gone back in time 6000 years to the Stone Age. Then we drew what we thought this same view would have looked like then.The children said we may have been sitting next to a cave – and that Mrs Knowles might have been eaten by a sabre toothed tiger! Then we began digging like archaeologists to see what we could find in the soil.
Term 3: We have been learning about Gospels. We acted out the story of how Jesus saved the Roman Centurion’s servant. This story is from the Gospel of Luke. It is story that shows how much respect all kinds of people had for Jesus, and it also shows how Jesus would help anyone, whatever their background. In the story, Jesus agrees to help a Roman Centurion, even though he is not a Jew like Jesus and his followers. He agrees to help him because he is a good man who has built a place of worship for the Jews, called a synagogue. The Roman Centurion sends a messenger to Jesus saying that he is not worthy to have Jesus come to his house. The Centurion says that he is also a person of authority, who tells people what to do, like Jesus. He says if Jesus commands his servant to be well then it will happen. Jesus does not need to come in person. When Jesus hears this, he is amazed. “I have not seen such faith” even among his own people.
We also had our Family Church Service on Sunday 3rd February – some of the photos from the service can be accessed below.
