Christmas has come to Year Three

We are getting very excited about Christmas in Year Three!

We tugged at a few heartstrings with our rendition of ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ at the Christmas Carol Concert.

We wrote about the Nativity from a different point of view.  Here is the story which Ariann and Dasha wrote together.
Can you guess who the narrator of their story is?

Yesterday I carried a woman to Bethlehem.  My back hurt a lot because the woman was pregnant and heavy!

At last we got to Bethlehem!  Unfortunately there was no place to stay!

After we walked all the streets one kind innkeeper let us stay in his stable!  At last I could eat some hay, drink some water and of course take a nap.

When I woke up I thought I heard a baby crying.  And it was a baby!  The woman said its name was Jesus.

The shepherds came in and they brought the cold, snowy air with them.  They kneeled down and prayed for Jesus.

Then three rich men came in and gave presents to the baby.

This story, by Felicity and India, is from a different point of view again.
Who do you think the narrator is this time?

One windy night when I was counting my sheep with the other shepherds suddenly an angel appeared out of nowhere!  We were so scared but the angel said, “Do not be afraid.” Then he told us a baby was to be born in a manger in Bethlehem and it would be called Jesus.

A while later we found the stable underneath a star as the angel had said.  We found him in the manger with Mary laying by him.

A while later everyone was looking at him.

After that everyone left so they could sleep and that was the end of the story.

We have been busy stitching stockings to hang up on Christmas Eve…

We got a lovely surprise one morning when we arrived to find our door decorated as one of our favourite film characters.  Thank you, Mrs Griffiths!

Our Class Trip to the Zoo

Last week, Year Three went on a class trip to BioParc, Fuengirola to find out a little bit more about the animals which inhabit the rainforest.

Marbella to Bioparc

Fuengirola is a town half an hour away by bus from our school in Marbella and our route took us along the coast – sea views all the way!  BioParc is quite a small zoo compared to lots of others we have been to.  However, it’s amazing how many different species of animals you can see there.  And they all originate in the rainforest!

Here’s a photo of us waiting for the zoo to open.

Our guide, Catalina, showed us around all morning, patiently answering all sorts of questions about the creatures we saw there.  We finished with a show, and two of the boys were delighted to be picked to feed the deer!

After a picnic and a play in the nearby playground, it was time to get back on the bus and head for home.

Here are some more photos of the day.

We loved the cheeky meerkats.

What was your favourite animal and why?
Animals should not be kept in zoos.  What do you think of this opinion?
