Football News

Tuesday 19th November On a very cold night at St. Bede's, our girls' football team played 5 matches in a tournament against 8 other schools. Unfortunately, we didn't gain any wins but not through a lack of trying. Thanks to a team effort of Mrs Mears, Mr Clegg and Mrs Taylor. Thursday 21st November The girls' football team played their third week of matches at Soccerdome. They had 2 defeats but 1 win against St. Paul's (5-0). Only 2 more weeks to go until the end of the tournament. Thanks for the constant support of parents/grandparents who come to support us each week. #Sports

Maths Week 3H

We have really enjoyed the rest of our Maths week. In Maths, we have been looking at 3D shapes and finding them around school. We had a go at making our own using Playdoh and Polydron. In PE, we created our own times tables and point scoring games. Linked to our Science, we used timers to measure our heart rates to understand what happens to our bodies when we exercise. #Maths #MathsWeek #Year3
