School Council Fundraiser!!

Last Friday we had a school council fundraiser for cancer research. We had about 5 stalls running, varying from a book stall, beat the goal keeper, how many sweets in the jar, guess the name of the teddy and get the beanbag in the hoop. The school council are yet to count the money that we raised and give to give out the prizes out to the winners. If you got a beanbag in the hoop or beat the goal keeper you got a little sweetie.


Year 3 Candlemas Assembly

We discovered fascinating facts about Candlemas. Each year the assembly's change along with the facts.

* When this festival celebrated it is the second of February which is the feast of Candlemas. In pre-Christian times, it was the festival of light. This ancient festival marks the point in the winter half way between the winter solstice, the shortest day, and the spring equinox, as the strength of the life-giving sun increases as winter gives way to spring.

* As it is a hinge between winter and spring, people believed that Candlemas predicted the weather for the rest of the winter.

* Candlemas is also called the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple; this was when Jesus and Mary went to the temple for the first time since he was born forty days before.

* In many churches it marks the end of Christmastide, when the very last decorations are taken down. In fact if you forget to get rid of your Christmas tree on the fifth of January you are supposed to keep it until today so that Christmas lasts forty nights.

There are many more traditions which relate to Candlemas. There is an old English rhyme.
If Candlemas day be fair and bright
Winter will have another flight;
If Candlemas Day be clouds and rain
Winter be gone and will not come again.

School council fundraiser

Last week school council decided to set up a fundraiser for Cancer Research .
The stalls we had were books, guess the teddy name, guess how many sweets on a jar, beanbags in a hoop and we had beat the goal keeper.  We enjoyed it so much . To have a go to win the prizes you had to either beat the goal keeper or get a beanbag in a hoop . Each child from each year brought in 50p and each stall was a silver coin

when the police came in!

On British values week the police came in to talk about the rule of law and the consequences if you disobey them. They also talked to us about E-safety and how not to give away any personal details away. We had to act out a crime scene somebody was the robber, a police officer, a 999 operator, a police dog and a helicopter.
