Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

In our classroom you will find Mr Clayton, Mrs Rayner and Mrs Vento who all help us with our learning.


Called to Change

“During his public life Jesus not only forgave sins, but also made plain the effect of this forgiveness: he reintegrated forgiven sinners into the community … from which sin had alienated or even excluded them. A remarkable sign of this is the fact that Jesus receives sinners at his table.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church

The children will develop their understanding that Jesus called people to change, to turn away from sin and receive the love of God. They will learn that it is not always easy to change and find out about some individuals who changed through the help of Jesus.

They will learn that the Sacrament of Reconciliation is a celebration of God’s love and forgiveness and begin to learn an Act of Sorrow. They will learn that Lent is a time to change in order to prepare for Easter.

At home you could help your children by:
• thinking about how Jesus changes our lives
• reading the story of Zacchaeus
• going online to and complete the interactive activities.
