    PE - Athletics

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    Today, Year 3 returned to running. We explored both relay racing using a baton as well as hurdle techniques. We found changing over the baton challenging. We had to make sure that we were ready for the baton, facing the right direction and ready to run for speed all at the same time!

    RE - Who are you and what do you mean to different people?

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    Year 3 created their "you cubes". On each side of the cube, we thought about and illustrated how we may appear in different aspects of our life. E.g. how we dress and act at school, brownies, clubs and home. We noticed that regardless of how we appear and the different things we do with different groups we are always ourselves.
