LENT

 

We began our Lenten journey with a service at Ellesmere Port Catholic High School for Ash Wednesday. We thought about saying sorry and asking for forgiveness. We thought about what we could do to prepare, how we could give to others and how we could strengthen our bond with God.

Celebrating Mass

 

We are exploring the topic 'Celebrating Mass'. Children will find out why Sunday is special for Christians and know that during Mass we hear the teachings of Jesus and we pray to him. We will develop our understanding of the bread and wine becoming the body and blood of Jesus. Children will learn that when we receive Holy Communion we receive Jesus and we will be learning some of the responses in Mass. Children will reflect on all that we have to be thankful.

 

Week 1: We looked at the Last Supper art work by Leonado Da Vinci. We thought about why what the disciples could be saying and thinking. We tried hard to explain why The Last Supper is important to Christians.

Week 2: We thought about the importance of saying 'sorry' and asking for forgiveness. We talked about why Christian's think it is important to ask for forgiveness. We found out that forgiveness is very important in other religions such as Islam, Judaism and Hinduism.

Last week: We looked at the word of the Lord and important words spoken during Mass. We created art work using watercolours and oil pastels to remind us of Gods word.

 Quantum Theatre- The Half Pint Kid

March 2019

 

Year 3 enjoyed a theatre production of 'The Half Pint Kid' who had find the missing money when it had been stolen from the bank! Children helped to find the clues and solve mathematical problems in order to get the money back!

We looked at the column method for simple addition, subtraction and multiplication. We added and subtracted fractions with the same denominator and recalled facts for our 3, 6 and 8 times tables!

                            Science

 

We have been learning about push and pull forces in our science lessons. We have been investigating friction and finding out what happens when we change the surface of the ramp. 

 

To make it a fair test we:

  • Kept the ramp at the same height
  • used the same car throughout the investigation
  • kept the landing surface the same
  • used the same person to release the car
  • measured the distance from the front of the car each time
  • measured using the same equipment each time. 

 

We CHANGED the material on the ramp.

Forgiveness Prayer Trail

 

We planned and carried out our own prayer trails using the theme of forgiveness. We used all of our knowledge from what we had learnt over the half term to help us to create a prayer and action for other children to think about. 

Miss Burke was really impressed with how independent we were and how we all worked effectively as part of a group.
