Year 3 Class Assembly February 2019. Shaping Up
Children in Year 3 took part in an assembly based on their I.P.C topic - ‘Shaping Up’. They learnt about muscles used in exercise, body organs and exercise. The children were able to welcome two different fitness instructors and took part in fitness and healthy eating sessions. During our assembly, the children were able to share the physical activities and sports that they participate in out of school, explaining how long they do each one for and the fun that they have when taking part in them. The assembly inspired all of us to think about how we can incorporate more exercise into our daily lives.
Shape Up IPC Topic
Children in Year 3 took part in a aerobics fitness session led by a fitness instructor as part of our IPC topic ‘Shape Up’. The children have been learning how important exercise is to our fitness and well- being.
School Trip to Bedfords Park
Year 3 enjoyed reading the book 'One Plastic Bag' as part of their English lessons. They learned about the problem of plastic in our world and in the sea. As the story was set in The Gambia, the children chose to wear African dress for their assembly. They shared their learning with the rest of the school in assembly through drama, singing and by sharing information.
Year 3 & 4 Quadkids Athletics
The Year 3 & 4 athletics team went to the Jim Peters Stadium at Mayesbrook Park this week to take part in the annual athletics competition. 28 schools took part in total. We had some fantastic individual performances from our children and the Year 3 team of Courtney, Benas, Ijara, Remiel, Cherish, Angel, Rosalia and Marlena finished in an amazing 5th place overall! They also won their relay race. Well done Year 3!
June 2017: Year 3 tennis competition
Year 3 recently took part in their first ever tennis competition at Sydney Russell School. They played against lots of other schools from across the borough and every single child played fantastically. They each played four games and all won at least one, with Michelle even winning all four of her games! Our two teams finished 2nd and 3rd in their respective groups, which was a brilliant result. I think they are all looking forward to next year's competition! I hope it has inspired them to continue playing tennis outside of school.
Annual Christmas Bazaar
Children in Year 3 enjoyed the activities at the Christmas bazaar. The children had fun playing games and spending their money on presents for their friends and families. There was a great selection of items for sale including delicious cakes, small toys and games. Father Christmas attended and children were able to have their photographs taken. All the children had a great time!
