Christmas is coming and Year 3 are getting prepared. Today we started to think about Advent and the promises we could make to prepare ourselves to celebrate Christmas. We have each chosen a ‘secret friend’ to care for, help and look after during the next few weeks. In the last week of term we will celebrate that friendship by giving them a small gift as a token to the value of £1.
Christmas cards can be brought into school in the last week of term when we will have Christmas festive fun. A nice way to remember others less fortunate than ourselves is to keep your used stamps and bring them into school for the Marie Currie Hospice in Woolton.
Thank you to all those parents who donated shoeboxes. The response was fantastic.
Year 3 will be celebrating Mass on the 12th December in St. Austin’s Church at 10 o’clock. Family and friends are very welcome to join us in our celebration.
Some projects have already come into school and we are looking forward to the children sharing their hard work and ideas with each other. They are allowed to dress up as a character from History on Thursday 4th December.
Can we remind you all that the children should be reading every night and bringing their reading card in on Fridays.
As part of our science topic the children have investigated which is the best protective packaging material by wrapping meringues in a variety of materials and sending them back through the post. We are eagerly awaiting their arrival back to school when we can see whose prediction was correct.
The Christmas Fair is this Sunday and the children have been asked to bring in an item for the grocery stall. In return for this they are allowed to wear their own clothes.
