PE days

Please note that our PE day has changed to Wednesdays.  Please could we remind you that all children should be in full St Nicholas, named PE kits, with any jewellery removed (earrings).

Our topics are Dance and Tag Rugby.  Dance will be indoors and require shorts, plimsolls and t-shirts.  Tag Rugby will be outdoors, so children may wear black jogging bottoms and trainers.

Many thanks

Term 2 Catch Up

 

Hello all,

I can’t believe it’s nearly Christmas and the end of term is almost upon us. We’ve had a busy time since the last half term beginning with;

  

Boogie bounce. Which was great fun, and exhausting!

Odd sock day to highlight how great it is to be different during Anti Bullying Week.

      

A fantastic day of sports at the Marsh Academy.

   

Estimating in maths.

 

and finally, learning how to present forward rolls in PE.

Unfortunately we still have quite a few children who either do not have the correct PE kit, or have no PE kit in school at all. It is really important that children are correctly prepared for all lessons.

Thank you

The Year Three Team

European Day of Languages – Year 3 German Day

Chestnut and Rowan enjoyed a day of learning all things German – greeting each other, drawing flags, listening to German classical music from Bach and Beethoven to Strauss and Mendelssohn, learning how to count to twenty – eins, zwei, drei, vier, fünf,… achtzehn, neunzehn, zwanzig – and carrying out simple maths in German.  They even played German bingo too!

Year 3 Boxing

Year 3 have been lucky enough to spend Wednesday afternoons with Boxing coaches, training them in the art of Boxing.  They have had great fun playing fitness games and learning the Boxing stances and some Boxing moves – jab, power, hook, uppercut.  They have even had the pleasure of training with current Youth Olympic Games gold medallist and Team GB hopeful, Karol Itauma (in red in the photos).

Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to all our new children and families to Rowan and Chestnut from the Year 3 team.

It was really lovely to see all the children looking so smiley, smart and enthusiastic on our first days back.

For your information our PE day is Tuesday.  Please can you ensure your children have a PE kit in school that is clearly labelled and any jewellery (e.g. earrings, etc.) is removed.

Many thanks,

The Year 3 Team
