Jesse Tree Retreat Day at St. Bede’s Church

In December 2017, Year 3 had a retreat day at St. Bede’s church. They learnt about the Jesse Tree and took part in various activities about these stories. They will have a chance to share their stories with the rest of the school during Advent.

Watford Football Club Stadium Visit

In November 2017, some children in year 3 and 4 were invited to a special event at Watford Stadium in Vicarage Road. They had a chance to see the premier league trophy and entered a design your own trophy competition. They also were lucky enough to have a stadium tour and met Harry the Hornet.

Intra-house Netball

In November 2017, Year 3 and Year 4 classes took part in a netball Intra – house competition which is part of the Sainsbury’s School Games. Children played in the colour teams and worked well in their teams using their skills they had learnt in their PE lessons this term. They also had training from Alan (our school sports partnership advisor). Children tried really hard and enjoyed the afternoon. Well done to the winners – Green team in Lisbon and Red team in Padua.


In June, Year 3 spent an afternoon learning about Sikhism. They reenacted what happens within a Gurdwara and learnt about Sikh customs and traditions. 



Hudnall Park 

In May 2017, Year 3 visited Hudnall Park for the day to explore rocks and soil.  They looked at different types of soil and made paintings using their findings. 


In April 2017, Year 3 built on their previous computing work and took photos of themselves using the ipads.  Then in art lessons they had to cut their picture in half and draw the other half of their face whilst thinking about proportions. 

Computing Exhibition

In March 2017, Year 3 exhibited their computing work that they had spent the whole half term working on. They learnt how to take their own photos, upload them and then edit them using photo editing software to create their own portrait art works. 

Safer Internet Day

In February 2017, Reception Lisbon and Year 3 Padua joint forces to practise and perform an assembly to lead the school in their Safer Internet Day activities.
