We enjoyed eating doughnuts today to celebrate the Jewish festival of light: Hanukkah. The doughnuts were cooked in oil which reminds us of the miracle of the oil in the temple...there was just enough to light the lamp for one day yet the lamp remained lit for 8 days!

3CB's Collective Worship
Reading to Reception
As part of Book Week the children in Year 3 spent time reading books to the children from the Reception classes. They were encouraged to share their books and to read with expression, asking questions to the younger listeners. This was an experience enjoyed by all the pupils!
Learning about Baptism
As part of our Judaism week, Y3 enjoyed a very special visit from the Sharabi family. They celebrated Shabbat with us and answered lots of our questions about what it is like to be Jewish. The children got to taste Challah bread and drank some grape juice. We discovered many similarities between Judaism and Christianity as well as the more obvious differences. Thank you to Edden, Ben and Oz for helping us to learn about other world religions - so much more exciting than just reading a book or watching a video!

End of RE topic fun!
Liverpool Police Band Concert
We watched a wonderful concert performed by the Liverpool Police Band and enjoyed lots of tunes that we recognised including the theme to Harry Potter and YMCA! It was great to see the instruments up close and to hear the conductor explain about each one.
