Children in Need - Friday 15th November
Here are some pictures from our annual Children in Need day. This year we were asked to dress up in 'wacky clothes' for the day. A great time was had by all.
Every Thursday until 12th December Year 3 will be doing forest school. Please send in wellington boots and old, warm clothing on a Thursday morning. The sessions start from Thursday 14th November.
Just a reminder that homework should be being completed and the book sent into school whenever a piece needs marking. Well done to you all as I can see a lot of hard work is being completed.
Well done to the whole of Year 3 for being the best class for attendance across the whole of KS2 for the autumn term. We got 96.7% as a class. It shows how dedicated you all are to your learning.
Over the past seven weeks the children have been looking at lines in their Art topic. We have been printing our flower designs and using them to create our calendars for 2020.

The children have all been stars this week with their good behaviour and so a big WELL DONE goes to them all! Thank you for being such a lovely class to teach.
On Wednesday 25th September we had a visit to Our Rose and Lima Church to look at the beautiful building and all the religious symbols.
Afterwards we had a great role play session on what democracy is as part of our topic on Ancient Greece.
Ryton Organic Gardens Year 3 Class Trip
Year 3 Class Trip
On Thursday 12th September, Year 3 went to Rydon Organic Gardens in Coventry. The children spent the day doing a creature trail, work on photosynthesis, soil investigations, looking at the effects of light on plants, seed dispersal and using the vegetable garden to design a seasonal meal. The weather was sunny and the gardens were stunning. The staff all commented on the excellent behaviour of the children. A great day was had by all.

Holy Communion Meeting with Father Gary for Parents and Children.
Date - This Wednesday, 23rd October 9am (school hall)
Reminder - there is a meeting, that Father Gary will be holding, for the children and parents who are preparing for the sacraments. The meeting will take place this Wednesday (23/10/19) at 9am in the school hall. Father is expecting full attendance of any parent who has a child who is intending to make their First Holy Communion in 2020.
A letter was sent home with the Communion 2020 children (last week 15.10.19) and the reply slip should have been returned to the office. If you are seeking this important sacrament but have had no letter, please mention to either myself or the school office before the meeting, this Wednesday.
If your child is not making their Holy Communion, you don't need to attend.
