In Maths we have been learning about time. We have been using analogue and digital clocks to read the time to the nearest minute
This week in Literacy we attended a meeting and pretended to be the farmers who are terrified of the Iron Man, who has been eating all of our tractors and ploughs! We all voted and decided to write a letter to the Prime Minister to persuade her to send him to the North Pole!
This week Year 3 attended the Greenwich Sportathon and participated in many activities alongside nine other schools. It was a fantastically sunny day and we all had a great time! After our warm-up we competed in hockey, races, golf, scootering, long jump, goal shooting and netball! We all had a chance to join in with different activities that we hadn't tried before. Even though we didn't win, we came back with a sense of excitement and are looking forward to our Holy Family Sports Day in two weeks!
