We would like to say a HUGE well done to those children in year 3 who took part in doing extra homework. The quality of work is fantastic and Mrs Barraclough and I are very proud.

We received some great models, power points and posters of our Local Area.

We look forward to sharing some of them with you in our class assembly on:

Year 3 – Our trip to the Mandir

Yesterday we went on a trip to visit the Mandir (Hindu Temple)

In our RE lessons we have been learning about Hindu Festivals so we decided to go and see what else we could find out.

We really enjoyed our workshop and now we can’t wait to learn all about Bramha.

Music Assembly.

Today we were treat to a hour long performance from the Bradford music service. The band were a brass quintet. They played a variety of music including tunes from the Greatest Showman, Despicable Me, Moana and Trolls.

All of the children were a fantastic audience and loved singing along and joining in.

Year 3 – Diwali

Firstly we would like to wish anyone who celebrates, a Happy Diwali!

In Year 3 our topic in Religious Education is Hindu Festivals.

We have started by looking at the Festival of Diwali as it was on the 7th November.

Diwali lasts for 5 days and is the Festival of Light.

As part of our RE lesson we designed and began to make some Diva lamps.We have used clay and different tools to follow our paper designs.

We are looking forward to painting them once the clay has dried. Keep checking back to see our finished products.
