Some mysterious footprints arrived in our classrooms one frosty, cold morning at the start of December. A note and a book were left alongside it- who could it be from? What a mystery! We then read the note and learned that Father Christmas has sent us some challenges do in order to receive a day full of Christmas wishes. We are so excited to get started!
To get us in the festive mood, we have been getting creative in year 3 by baking delicious brownies for the Christmas Fayre and scrumptious cupcakes for our visit to some local Care Homes, where we will be singing some Christmas songs! We learnt lots about scales by weighing things out and reading different scales. Take a look at us in action!
In maths we have been working hard to understand fractions. We have looked at what fractions we know, adding and subtracting fractions, and equivalent fractions. We created our own fraction walls to help us show equivalent fractions like the one below. We can use this for our homework to help us.
This half term we have been thinking about what it means to believe. Like the characters in the Polar Express, we thought about what we believed in and how we could describe what we believe in even though we might not necessarily be able to see it. We researched some sacred books and used line representations to show how God feels.
We also made Christingles to take to our Christingle Service at St. Stephen's Church. We learnt all about the meaning behind each part of the Christingles.
Polar Express Day
To end our topic, we had a special Polar Express Day! We came into school in our cosiest pyjamas, baked delicious gingerbread men and watched the film. It was great to see the book come to life!
