Class Teacher: Miss Kilfoyle

 

World War One

Year 3 have contributed towards the commemoration of World War One. Using 'Where the Poppies Grow', we wrote our own emotive poems and produced effective artwork. 

Sign Language

We have been fortunate enough to work alongside 'Deaf Active' who have taught us how to sign. In December we took part in an inspirational performance alongside other local schools at Neston High School. We were incredibly proud of our children and their sign language was impressive! 

Christmas

This Christmas we performed 'The Good, The Bad and the Donkey' alongside Year 4. We were extremely proud of all of our children, it was a magnificent show!

Our Trip to Little Neston Methodist Church

Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Little Neston Methodist Church where we met lots of the characters from the Nativity Story. We increased our knowledge about the events of the Christmas Story and we asked lots of interesting and thoughtful questions. Year 3 walked sensibly and safely to the Church, and we would like to praise them for their beautiful manners that they used when members of the public kindly waited to let us pass. 

Geography - UK

The children have thoroughly enjoyed looking at a range of maps, photos, diagrams and research based on the UK. Please encourage them to explore their local environment and to bring in any examples of maps that you may come across. 

World Book Day

We had a memorable time on World Book Day, celebrating our love of books! Thank you to everyone for providing and helping the children with their imaginative costumes. The children enjoyed watching our staff performance of ‘The Jolly Postman’ and working alongside a local author, Paul Ronane.

Swimming

It is a privilege to take our Year 3 children swimming each week. The progress they are making each week is exceptional and their enthusiasm is lovely. We assess the children throughout their lessons and make changes to the groups if we feel it is necessary.  It makes us smile each week to hear the children thanking the staff at the swimming pool and the bus driver. Our children have impeccable manners and are a delight to take out!

Professor Wigley

We were fascinated by the workshop that Professor Wigley provided for Year 3 on bones. His talk enhanced our Science work and taught us that animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement. We showed considerable respect for the animal bones, as we handled them with great care. Professor Wigley’s passion and enthusiasm has led to lots of children expressing their desire to become vets and scientists! What an inspirational afternoon!

Fair Trade

Year 1 and Year 3 worked together to bake and taste some chocolate treats using Fair Trade ingredients. We enjoyed developing our knowledge of Fair Trade by playing board games and having a lively debate in the role of farmers, shop owners, manufacturers and traders about what was a fair amount of profit to each receive. The children articulated and justified their opinions with passion, and showed excellent listening skills by responding appropriately to each other.
