Da iawn Blwyddyn 3 for an absolutely wonderful Christmas performance of The Muppets Christmas Carol. All the children were excellent in their performances, having worked hard on stage props, costumes, learning lots of lines and songs. A big thank you to all of the families for supporting the children by providing costumes, help with learning lines and songs and, of course, being a fantastic audience! Nadolig Llawen pawb!
Please spend some time practising the songs and scripts for our Christmas concert which is in two weeks. Below you can find the links to videos showing the songs to sing along to. Please also start planning your child's costume, and fill in the sheet in their homework book. There is a suggested list of costumes below.
It feels like Christmas:

Bringing bags into school
We ask that children only bring bags into school if it is absolutely essential, and that they are as small as possible. This is due to a limited amount of space in the cloakroom area. Thank you for your support and consideration.
Croeso Nol - Welcome Back
Welcome back everyone to year 3, we are already in the swing of our new topic Globetrotters. So far we have had lots of fun learning about different explorers, the Viking and Egyptians and using maps and globes to learn about the world.
After half term the children will be writing a holiday guide about a place of their choosing. In preparation for this, we would like them to spend a little time researching a destination. This can be done online, at the library or by visiting in person. The place could be a country, city or resort, and it can be local or abroad. If you are having a family holiday or a day trip during half term, then that can feed into the research. Children can record this in anyway they choose – by writing some simple notes, taking photographs and captioning them, creating a PowerPoint or a Word document (both available through Hwb).
A good starting point if you aren’t travelling to the destination is the Google Earth website. The intention is not for children to have written their holiday guide over the half term, but simply to have an idea about which place they’d like to write about and to have some ideas of the kinds of content they could include.
Our topic for this term is Globetrotters. For our immersion days we enjoyed our visit from Major Tom who took us on a exciting journey of discovery about famous explorers through history. The children loved learning about Christopher Columbus, Marco Polo and others. We also spent time on immersion activities such as tracing the routes that the Viking armies took on their invasion of Great Britain, exploring artifacts from different countries abroad and designing our own country flags.
The children have now spent some time using these immersion activities to think about what they would like to learn more about, using our skills to plan some lessons for the term. We have lots of exciting learning planned!
