Year 3 kick started the week by taking part in their music performance as well as their Christmas dance in Church which were both fantastic! In English this week, Year 3 focussed on a well-known Christmas Advert from 2014 known as ‘ The First World War Truce’ which retold the story of Christmas Day in 1914, when opposing British and German soldiers emerged from their trenches to exchange gifts and play football. The children were mesmerised by the clip and even clapped at the end after their emotional watch. We then imagined being in Jim’s shoes (the British soldier featured in the video) and created a mood board to show how we would be feeling across different stages of that day in 1914 as well as what we could hear and what we did – the children did a fantastic job.
On Thursday, we all wore our jolly Christmas jumpers and loved wearing our Christmas hats (we also had the pleasure of seeing Mrs Patterson’s turkey hat!) whilst enjoying our wonderful Christmas lunch courtesy of All Saints’ kitchen staff – yum, yum, yum!
