Welcome to Year 3,
Saint Margaret Ward
Our School Mission Statement
To love, learn, share and respect in the light of Jesus.
I would like to welcome your child to year 3. I am looking forward working in partnership with you over the coming months.
Your child's timetable will soon be finalised and will soon be posted below. In the meantime, PE lessons will be on a Thursday afternoon (outdoor) and a Friday morning (indoor).
Please see below for this half-term's RE topic in year 3.
With thanks and best wishes,
Year 3 – The Christian Family
“The Church is the family of God, the people that God gathers in the whole world.”
Religious Education Curriculum Directory
The children will develop their understanding that the Church is the family of God and know that we join this family when we receive the Sacrament of Baptism. They will learn about the history of baptism starting with the story of John the Baptist baptising Jesus. We will look at a baptismal ceremony and the signs of symbols of baptism, including the promises made by our parents and godparents at baptism.
You could help your children by:
• sharing your experiences about their Baptism. Look at any gifts or photographs that they received on their special day.
• discuss what it means to be part of God’s family
• go online to www.tere.org/interactive_site/KS2link.htm and complete the interactive activities
