Monday 13th July

 Good evening everyone. I cannot believe we are at the end of the school term! I know it is not the year we had planned but I am so proud of all the children who have completed all the work set each week on Purple Mash and have been completing the worksheets on this page as well as BBC Bitesize. You have shown such great resilience with your work. You should be very proud of yourselves. 

This week, please complete the work set on Purple Mash, I have logged on to some of your accounts and can see lots of 2dos that have not yet been done. Please try to get as many done as possible this week.

To help with the maths work I have set on Purple Mash, please look at the links below.  

There is a powerpoint explaining the work which the you may find useful.

Day 1 Use a fraction wall

Day 2 Use a fraction wall

Day 3 Find pairs of fractions

Day 4 Write and draw analogue and digital times

Day 5 Match analogue and digital times

Day 1 Powerpoint

Day 4 Powerpoint

It would be lovely this week if you could spend time thanking your mums, dads and the other adults in your life that have cared for you during this pandemic. Maybe you could make them a card, write them a poem or just help out around the house a bit more!

Have a lovely week.

 Good morning everyone and happy St Peter's day.

Today is St Peter's day and if we were in school we would be celebrating our patron saint. Unfortunately we cannot all be together but I have attached a ppt all about St Peter for you to look at and at the end are some activities you might want to try. 

Please send me any photographs of work you have done. 

Have a lovely day!

St Peter Powerpoint

St Peter picture

On Purple Mash I have set you a '2animate' task. I'd like you tell me The Story of St Peter using animation. It's a bit tricky to use at first but once you get the hang of it, it's a lot of fun. Take your time with it, I don't expect it in tomorrow. Save your work as you go by clicking on the three lines in the top left corner once you are on the animation and then you will get the chance to save it. There is a video you can watch to help you aswell! 

Below are this week's home learning packs for you to download. Keep working hard!

Year 3 parent guidance 22nd June

In school this week we are going to be exploring our school value of "hope".

Hope is really important at this difficult time and the activities below will help you explore why.

Here is a link to a lovely story about why hope is important.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scJlPW4al_s

Now think about-What does hope mean to you?

What Bible stories relate to hope?

What is the significance of doves?

What do doves mean to you?

Where are doves found in the Bible?

Why are doves important symbols?

Click the link below to see how you can make your own dove. Write on it your hopes for the future and hang it in your window.

We are going to hang our doves near the school entrance and on the church door.

Morning Year 3,

Tomorrow is World Refugee Day. Now, more than ever, refugees need our prayers and kind thoughts. I have attached a power point below so that you can read all about refugees and learn about a little girl's journey from Zimbabwe to find a safe new home. 

For an activity, I would like you to have a go at writing an acrostic poem using the word WELCOME.

For example-

We are kind and loving and will try to keep you safe.

Everybody should spend time trying to understand what refugees go through.

Let us not forget how lucky we are to live where there are no wars! 

Come to our school, we can offer you friendship.

Over the years, many refugees have settled in Britain.

May refugees find peace and somewhere they can thrive.

Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. 

(This poem was written with the help of the key worker children in school today)

I would love to see your acrostic poems. If your parents could email me a photo of your poem, I will post them on here for everyone to see.

I have set more 2dos for today aswell and please don't forget to log on to Spelling Shed and TTRS.

Have a lovely weekend Year 3.

Thursday. 18th June, 2020

Good morning boys and girls,

This afternoon, the children in school and I, are going to have a go at some Picasso inspired art work. We will be using a style of art called Cubism. I thought you might like to have a go too. Below is a power point all about Picasso and underneath that is a drawing task. The drawing task suggests using a dice but you could just ask a parent to call out a number from 1-6 if you don't have one.

I would love to see what you come up with! 

There are plenty of 2dos for you to do on Purple Mash as well as Spelling Shed and TT Rockstars too!

Have a lovely day! I miss you all!

Mrs Jones

Wednesday, 17th June, 2020

For help with today's science task, please watch this video to do with seed dispersal.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/znvfb9q

There is a 2do on Purple Mash that asks you to write how seeds are dispersed. It would be helpful to you if you wrote a few notes on paper whilst you are watching the video. 

There are new maths and reading 2dos. Most of you will finish the Mary Anning story today so please complete the book reviews I have set for you too! 

Have a lovely day! 

 

Tuesday, 16th June, 2020

Good morning boys and girls,

Unfortunately, there have been some issues with Purple Mash and so I have had to resend a lot of 2dos. If you have already done them, then ignore them. The 2dos were only appearing in some children's 'alerts' and not others so I had to resend to all. 

There is plenty to be getting on with now on Purple Mash. Plus, there are new tasks on BBC Bitesize for you to have a go at. The geography work is all about Volcanoes and so it would be great if you could have a go! 

The link is here for BBC bitesize- https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize

Have a lovely day!

Achievements- Monday 15th June, 2020

A big well done to Grace who is now at the top of the Year 3 leader board on Spelling Shed! Lucy is not far behind! Well done girls but why not give them some competition! As a class, we are creeping up on the leader board but we are still way behind Mrs Clinch's class. Come on boys and girls! Let's see if we can take over and be in the top spot by the end of the week! 

Thank you for sending work via Purple Mash today but I have only had 5 children access it! If you are using BBC Bitesize, paper based learning or another form of learning, why not send me an email to let me know and we can share in your achievements! 

Callum has sent me this poem for you to see, he was inspired by a poetry lesson he had completed on BBC Bitesize and I think it's great! 

 

Monday 15th June

Good morning Year 3, 

I have set you lots of new 2dos on Purple Mash. Can't wait to see you the work you submit!  This week,  please try to access the BBC Bitesize daily lessons. They cover everything you are missing in school!

Good morning boys and girls,

I have set more 2dos today but please also have a go at this Plant based task by following this BBC Bitesize link-

 https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znm4kmn

There are a couple of informative videos and 2 tasks.

At home, we have been planting lots of different types of fruit and veg and some of them are almost ready to eat. I will take some photos today and post them on here for you to see. I saw a photo of our Jessica yesterday, she's been growing thyme! If you have been growing things in your garden, I'd love to see your photos. Or maybe you've seen an interesting looking plant or flower on a walk you have been on recently and you happened to take a photo! You can email me at year3@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk 

Please don't forget to use TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed. I'll be looking later to see if we have moved up the leader board! Fingers crossed! 

Have a lovely day!

Here are some photos of some of the plants I am growing in the garden and the green house. They are loving this wet weather!

Thursday, 11th June, 2020

Good morning Year 3,

There has been as issue with Purple Mash this week. Only some of you have been getting the 2dos and so I have reset some of them. If a 2do appears for you to do and you have already done it. then just ignore it. I have checked your accounts and can see plenty of 2dos for you to get on with now. I'm looking forward to receiving your work.

In Science, we would have been learning all about Plants and so I have set you a couple of 2dos based on how plants grow. Please watch these videos below to help  you with the writing task I have set. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkFPyue5X3Q

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9f87hv

I check Spelling Shed and TT Rockstars daily to see who has been accessing it. In Spelling Shed we are second to the last on the leader board! Come on Year 3!! Let us give Year 6 a run for their money!!!

Have a lovely day.

Mrs Jones  

 

 

 

Home Learning Photos

Here are some photos of our Sophia and Lucia. Sophia has had a fringe cut! Doesn't she look great? Lucia has learnt how to ride a bike during lock down! Well done  Lucia! Both girls made a cinema in their home so that they could watch the new Trolls film together too!

Please continue to send photos in for me to see and I can upload them on here for your friends!

Morning Year 3,

I have set more 2dos via Purple Mash so please log on and complete them. Below is a link to the BBC Bitesize lessons that children in school are completing today. Have a go and let me know how you find them via a blog on Purple Mash or an email. If you are finding them too difficult you could also look at the Year 2 work for revision.

Summer Reading Challenge Letter

Monday 8th June

 Good morning Year 3, I hope you had a lovely half term! I have missed you all!!!

Thank you for all the work you are continuing to do. It has been a very long time since we were in school together but I am so proud of the learning you have been doing at home with your families! Let's keep going for the last half term in Year 3! 

Throughout this final half term I would like you all to use times table rock-stars and Spelling-shed every day. We really need you all to be fluent in your times tables and know all the yr3/4 spellings. This will give you a great start for next year. 

Also this half term, every Monday, I will be adding a downloadable home learning pack for you to complete as I know some children prefer to work like this. The links are below and there are some good videos to support you if you are struggling.

The children who have been coming to school have been doing the BBC Bitesize lessons everyday so why not do these in the morning and then maybe Purple Mash in the afternoon? The link is below- As you will see today's History task is all about The Romans!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zmyxxyc/year-3-and-p4-lessons

I have added new work to Purple Mash so please continue to complete this and because I know you are all missing each other please try to send each other emails and blogs. You should be able to do this as part of your ICT learning. 

It would be really great if your could write a review of a book you have read over the lock down. I will start a "book blog" on Purple-Mash and I would like you to write why you enjoyed the book and a brief outline of the story. Other children can then read your reviews and decide if they would like to read the book too! It'll be like a virtual 'Reading for Pleasure' session like we did each day after lunch! 

I miss you all very much!

Take care and stay safe.

Good afternoon Year 3.

I have set you some 2dos to keep you busy today but I will not be posting more until 8th June so that you can all have a well deserved break! Thank you all for working so hard over the past 9 weeks! I am so very proud of you all, not just because of all the work you are submitting but also your ability to cope with the uncertainty that the pandemic has caused. I am very lucky to be the teacher of you incredible children! 

Below are some photos I have received today. We have Holly's fantastic Roman poster and fact file and Callum's practical fraction work involving CAKE! Callum has also been learning to tie his shoes and teaching his little brother all about cars and trains. 

Even though it will be half term for the next fortnight I would love to receive photos still!

Have a lovely half term boys and girls!

Morning boys and girls, 

One of the tasks I have set on Purple Mash is to read through a power point based on Ancient Rome, some of the words are long and hard to decode so you might need an adult's help. When you have read the information I would like you to make a fact file all about Ancient Rome, (your fact files about Italy were amazing) and present it in any way you like. There is a template on Purple Mash but it's one I have adapted and has photos of castles on it. You could do it on paper and send me a photo!

Below is Callum's fact file which I'm sure you'll agree is AMAZING!

Have a lovely day Year 3. 

Mrs Jones

Wednesday, 20th May, 2020

Sorry boys and girls, I have been setting different books for you to read on Purple Mash and I have set some of you the wrong chapters. Most of us are reading Mary Anning and Time Twister. and some of us are reading about Ned and the Detectives. You should have the correct 2dos now! Sorry about the mix up!

 

Mrs Jones 

Below are some of the photos I have received from you! You have been busy, boys and girls!

Our Noah has drawn a fantastic self portrait and is experimenting  with 'relief printing' that he will soon transfer on to a t-shirt! Warick has been drawing detailed pictures from the film, Sherlock Gnomes, Holly has been wandering through the woods and playing in nature tents with her brother, Jess and Lucy have written excellent post cards from Rome as one of our Purple Mash tasks and Callum has been using the Purple Mash cam to become a Roman soldier! 

It makes my day hearing from you and seeing photos of you all! I miss you all very much. 

Mrs Jones x

Wednesday, 20th May, 2020

Good morning boys and girls,

I'll be posting photos later of all of the wonderful work you have been doing at home. But first...

For today's maths, we are looking at fractions on a numberline. Please follow this link to White Rose Maths and then look for Year 3, Week 2- lesson 1. Watch the videos and then have a go at the worksheets- you can do them on paper if you can't print them out. I have set some 2dos on Purple Mash to link to this too!

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

 

For English, please write down some facts and opinions about The Romans, for example- It is a fact that the Roman Empire covered much of Europe. It is my opinion that they were greedy for wanting so much power and land. 

This is a good website to use for facts about the Romans! http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/Romans.html

For reading, I will be setting new chapters of our stories on Purple Mash.

There is a really good book on Epic reading called Tools of the Ancient Romans that I think you might like too!  I have posted a photo of the front cover below. 

Have a lovely day Year 3!

I miss you all.

Mrs Jones

Monday, 18th May, 2020

Good morning Year 3, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. 

In maths this week, we will be looking again at Fractions. Follow the link to the BBC Bitesize webpage, watch the 2 videos and then have a go at the activities.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zd8mt39

Then, log on to Purple Mash and complete your Fraction 2dos.

For reading, I have set most children up with a new book called 'Mary Anning and the Time Twister'. I hope you all enjoy it. For more reading, please continue to use Epic online reading resource. It's great!

 

For spelling, I set new 2dos on Friday that only a couple of you have completed, if you have completed the spelling tasks then please log in to Spelling Shed. I think Year 3 are 4th in the league.....we need to give Mrs Clinch's class a challenge as they are currently winning!

For writing, we are looking at fact and opinion (it links in with our reading objectives too). Please follow the link below to find the videos and activities-

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn4dqp3

 

Please do as many tasks as you can, instead of sending pictures of completed work today (I know it is time consuming for parents to do this, I have to do it for my own daughters too) why not just let me know in our new blog how you have found the tasks?

Have a lovely day Year 3.

Mrs Jones

Encourage your children to create a fabulous National Book Token design while they're learning from home, and they could return to school with National Book Tokens for all!

When schools open up again, the young designer and their classmates will each receive a £10 National Book Token – emblazoned with the winning artwork – to inspire them to choose their next favourite book from their local bookshop.

CLOSING DATE - Sunday 28th June 2020.

Good morning Year 3.

Below are some more photos of all the wonderful things some of you have been up to. Lucy has been making delicious pizzas after learning all about Italy for her leaflet. Patrick has made a very impressive bird table and Mrs McGarry has learned how to send more than one photo in an email!!!

Doing school work is important but so is cooking, being creative and being out there, in the sunshine, exploring. One thing I have learnt whilst being on lockdown is to appreciate the beautiful world we live in. The weather is going to be lovely this weekend, if you go for a walk or play in your gardens, I would love to see your photos! I've been growing lots of different types of fruit and veg recently. I will add some photos later. Have you been growing things? I would love to see them!

I have a couple more 2dos for you to have a go on based on 'time' and I have sent you some reading too. Maybe you could take a book into your gardens and then you can be around nature whilst you read?!

Whatever you do this weekend, I hope you have lots of fun.

I miss you!

GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS TTRS

Hi Everyone,

Times tables rockstars got in touch with GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS about how fast some of their times tables rockers are getting.

They have a new challenge- "the highest score achieved on ‘Times Tables Rock Stars in one minute!"

The highest scores they have seen over the years have been 150+ in a single Studio game so we know the standard for this global title will be high. 

 

Please send the video to Year6@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk or Year5H@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk and we will send St Peter’s quickest rockers to TTRS by 4th June 2020.

 

To enter there are a few rules to follow.

1.    The attempt must take place in a Studio game.

2.    The attempt may take place on any of the following compatible devices:

o    Desktop computer

o    Laptop computer

o    Tablet

o    Phone

3.    The video must adhere to the following:

o    Show the player clearly playing, i.e. hand(s) physically entering numbers on the input device.

o    Show the back of the player's head or profile to see roughly who they are (just the person’s arm and screen isn’t enough, for example).

o    Show the score and timer clearly.

o    Show the start and end of the game, including a clear shot of the end of game score screen.

o    Be filmed in one take and unedited. No filters, effects, overlays, backing music are allowed. Turn your phone/table/computer on mute.

Good luck!

Hello boys and girls,

Here are some of the photos of the lovely work you have been doing. Thank you for sending it to me to see. Keep it up!

I have also attached some pictures showing what you have been up to lately. Daniel seems to have had a wonderful VE Day celebrating with his family, he even had a social distancing water fight! Hope you won Daniel! Layla has created her musical instrument for our school competition and she has been spending time in the garden with her little brother. Grace, Holly, Nia, Alfie and Lucy have been doing lots of writing activities which are great to see! Georgia is being tormented by her crazy cat and Adam has a new puppy called Roy! Patrick has been painting pebbles and hiding them in places for you to find and he's been doing lots of DT at his dad's garage. Nia has been reading lots of books and has kept an impressive reading diary! 

I would love to hear from more of you. Thank you for all the work you are submitting on Purple Mash. BBC Bitesize is a fantastic online resource that you can use. I will directing you to more of the tasks on there over the coming days. 

I miss you all lots!

Good morning children, I hope you are all ok!

For English today, we are going to revisit 'inverted commas'. Please follow this link- https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7s6t39 which will take you to BBC Bitesize.

Watch the two videos and have a go at the activities and games. I would love to see your completed work so maybe you could take a screenshot of your computer and send it to me or you could take a photo of your actual work, either way I hope you enjoy today's writing tasks. The BBC Bitesize resources are really fun to use! 

 

In Maths, we are carrying on with 'Time', Holly made her own clock recently and it was amazing! I'll post a photo below for you to see. Maybe you could have a go at making a clock face! The weather is going to be dry today so you could even go outside and make one using stones and twigs?!

Have a lovely day, have fun and work hard!

I miss you all,

Well done Lucy!

Monday, 11th May, 2020

Good morning boys and girls,

I have been having issues with Purple Mash since Friday and I am unable to open some of your tasks. I have set some new 2dos for you so hopefully it'll fix itself soon! 

Tomorrow, Tuesday 12th May, is Florence Nightingale's birthday.  It is marked by International Nurses day. On this day we celebrate the wonderful work which nurses do.  It is especially poignant this year as nurses have been working so hard for us.

This week I would like you to either research the wonderful work of Florence Nightingale or write a letter to the nurses thanking them for all they do for us. You can either send me your work to post on this page or, if you know a nurse send him/ her your letter.

You could also create a Thank-you poster for nurses  to put in your window !

Click the link below for an interesting podcast all about Florence Nightingale.

Hello boys and girls,

This week is Hedgehog Awareness Week and so I thought we could complete some tasks based on the beautifully spiky creatures . 

Here is a video of how you could build your own Hedgehog Hotel or even just an area in your garden especially for wildlife. If you don't have a garden, you could watch the video and then design an ideal home for a hedgehog on paper. You could label the features and explain your reasons for including things. 

I would love to see photos of your creations! 

Video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMVWPvhFrpw

I'd like you to write an information page on hedgehogs. You'll discover just how important they are for our environment and for keeping our gardens healthy.

Below are some photos of one of the hedgehogs I have in my garden (we had three last week!) 

I hope you are all well. I miss you all.

Home Learning Award

Every week I will be choosing a 'Home Learning Star of the Week'

This week, I couldn't just choose one child as I have been sent lots of lovely work and so the certificates this week are awarded to Callum, Wiktoria So and Wiktoria Si.

These children have completed every task set to a very high standard! They are on Purple Mash and Epic Reading daily. Well done!

Today is May Day.

May Day is a public holiday usually celebrated on 1 May. It is an ancient festival of Spring and a current traditional spring holiday in many European cultures. Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the festivities.

Watch this clip about May morning in Oxford. They still have May Day celebrations today, although this year will be very different.

Then, complete the 2do in Purple Mash. Write about May Day.

 

Or....

Have a look around this website,  https://www.nasa.gov/kidsclub/index.html 

to see what you can discover about International Space Day which is also today. Then log on to Purple Mash and do either the Alien Diary 2Do or write up facts in the Big Astronauts Template 2Do.

Have a lovely day,

Mrs Jones

Hello boys and girls,

Thank you for the work you are submitting, I am very proud of you! An extra thank you and well done to Nia and Callum who continue to access Epic Reading. Scroll down if you have forgotten the log in details, It is a brilliant resource packed full of interesting fiction books, comics and non fiction books. The books can be read by you or listened to! I have assigned three very interesting books for you to look at (image below), all about Rome, The Ancient Romans and Italy! Let me know what you think of them, they will help you with your research leaflets!

Have a lovely day.

The Romans

Look at this lovely work our Ruby has done! She has decided to do her leaflet on paper instead of on Purple Mash. I hope this work inspires you! 

Well done Ruby! Keep up the good work.

Good afternoon boys and girls, 

Have a look below at what our Patrick, Bridgette and their little sister Martha have been up to recently. They look as though they are having loads of fun!

I would love to see photos of what you have all been up to recently and I will continue to upload them on here for us all to look at!

Email the photos to- year3@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk

Mrs Jones

The Romans

To inspire us with our learning all about The Romans, Callum's mum has kindly sent me some photos she took whilst in Bath. The photos show Roman baths, buildings and artefacts! Thank you Mrs Forster! 

If your parents have any photos of museums or Roman settlements they have been to I would love to see them. 

There have been some AMAZING Roman leaflets and research pages completed so far, I will post pictures soon to give you ideas if you haven't started your yet.

Hello boys and girls,

I hope you are all well. 

Maths

For maths this week we will be learning about different types of lines. Clink on this link and have a look at this video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEYlg6AYC6c

then, please watch this video on perpendicular lines- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3AOoLbA3us

Now, have a go at the task set on Purple Mash about 'lines'.

Can you find examples of different types of lines in your homes and gardens? Maybe you could take photos of the lines and send them to me via our email address or, using a ruler, you could draw the different types of lines and send me a picture of your completed work. 

Writing

I have set you a writing task to create a leaflet all about Italy and Rome. There are loads of videos on youtube to help you,  this video is particulary good- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5mpdzUlFmw

You will need to research where Italy is, the types of food Italians eat, a little bit about Italian culture, its famous landmarks and Ancient Rome. I can't wait to see your leaflets- your volcano ones were brilliant! 

 

Keep working hard and stay safe,

Mrs Jones 

Friday, 24th April, 2020

Morning boys and girls,

Have a look at the photos below of the learning that continues to go on at home! You are all AMAZING! Keep the photos coming and I will upload them on here for us all to see. 

BTW, Callum has sent a brilliant book review via Purple Mash recommending Diary of a Wimpy Kid- Wrecking Ball and Nia is reading The Worst Witch series and Holly Webb stories. I would love to hear more book recommendations!

Oh and I can't wait to see your cupcake creations!

Mrs Jones

Thursday, 23rd April, 2020

Good afternoon boys and girls,

I hope you are all OK! I miss you lots and can't wait until we are back together in school! Thank you to the children that have sent me photographs of things they have been up to recently. I love seeing your photos so please keep sending them to our class email address year3@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk .

I am enjoying reading your messages on our blog too! If you haven't managed to use it, log on to Purple Mash and you will see the comments that me and your friends have been making. It is a safe way of communicating with each other as I have to approve all messages and it is only available for me and you to see! 

Thank you again to the boys and girls who keep sending work via Purple Mash. The BBC have launched brand new online lessons that are really fun, there are lots of lessons available across the curriculum.

If we were together in school, we would have started to learn all about The Romans. The Romans and their way of life were fascinating. It would be good if you could research all about the Romans and make a project based on your learning. You could make an information leaflet, a poster or arts and crafts based tasks such as a shield or an amphitheater! We already know that Mount Vesuvius erupted during the Roman times and that Pompeii was a city where the Romans lived. Maybe you could make a model Roman house to show how different they were to the homes built during the Neolithic Era! I cannot wait to see what you come up with! Send me photos of your projects to our email address!

Have a lovely week Year 3 and stay safe.

All my love, Mrs Jones x

Thursday, 9th April, 2020

Hello boys and girls,

I have started a Year 3 class blog on Purple Mash so that we can share news, celebrate work and keep in touch. I will be asked to approve all messages that go on the blog to ensure they are kind and good natured which I know they will be from you anyway. It is a safe way of us communicating as a class. It can be found in the 'sharing' tab on Purple Mash. You can create your own blogs too, for example, you might like to keep a blog like an online diary and write down what you have been doing and how you are feeling, it might be a good way to deal with some of the emotions you are going through at the minute due to the Coronavirus.  

I wish you all a happy and Holy Easter with your families. Today is Maundy Thursday, we remember the time Jesus shared The Last Supper with His friends. Please try to say a prayer before bed and thank Jesus for the ultimate sacrifice he made for us all,. 

I miss you all very much and hope to see you soon.

Mrs Jones

Good afternoon boys and girls. I hope you are having a lovely week! Thank you for continuing to access Purple Mash and Epic! If you haven't logged into Purple Mash so far then please make an effort to do so as I have set lots of activities that you are missing out on!

Thank you to the children that have made leaflets on Volcanoes. They are wonderful! I'll print them out and add them to your Geography books. I have also received some lovely emails from a couple of you, It is so nice to hear what you have been up to! I am missing you lots so it's nice to see photos of you and hear about the tasks you have been doing with your families.

Your parents can email me if they need help with specific tasks or if they would like me to set more tasks. I have set new tasks today on Purple Mash. Lots of you are handing in work without capital letters and full stops! Ask your parents to show you how to make capital letters on your ipads and laptops! 

Thank you again for the work you are submitting, I can see some of your are working very hard! Please don't forget to read each day! Reading is sooooo important boys and girls!!!

Good morning Year 3, I hope you are all well on this beautiful morning.

Thank you again for all of the wonderful work you are completing on Purple Mash and Epic Reading. You are doing very well with your times tables, I am keeping a log of all your scores! Let's see who is the quickest at their 3s, 4s and 8s! I am setting a few more '2dos' this morning. I will not be checking Purple Mash over the weekend as we all need a rest but I will check our school emails so message me if you need help!

Have a lovely day- I miss you all and can't wait to see you soon.

Good morning Year 3.

Thank you for the work you have been sending via Purple Mash. I particularly like your paintings of the volcanoes! I have sent some more '2dos' this morning. I hope you had a chance to read chapter 1 of The Sleeping Volcano as I have set you some comprehension questions based on it. Don't forget, we have also signed up to Epic, it is brilliant! 

Mrs Moreton and Mrs Beaumont are setting up a class email address so that you can email me if you or your parents need guidance with the tasks that I am setting!

Good afternoon Year 3.

Thank you for all the work you are sending through Purple Mash! I can also see your games, paintings, post cards and other activities. Well done!

 

I am setting more 2do tasks today. I am setting you one linked to PSHE. I bet you are missing one another and so have a go at describing your friends and painting a picture of them. Remember to write in full sentences using capital letters and full stops. 

 

Have a lovely day. Try to enjoy the sunshine whilst it lasts! This afternoon, I am sketching daffodils with my little girls. Maybe you could sketch some flowers too?

 

I have also created each of you an account on Epic Reading. It is a great way to practice your reading and comprehension skills.  Please read the instructions below to access your account.

Mrs Jones x

EPIC READING

Epic is a great online reading resource. 

Year 2 love reading and sadly due to many public buildings beginning to shut, children may not have access to a variety of books. I have signed up the children to Epic which provides children with hundreds of books from all genres along with quizzes, It is crucial that over the next few weeks your child reads as much as possible to ensure the love of reading they have developed continues to flourish. 

Below are instructions on how to access your child's account.

Please note: On the instructions below you will notice that Step 3 says 'Select your child's name and you're in!' Your child will also be required to enter a pin. Their pin is the same 2digit password they use for Purple Mash but repeated. So if your child's purple mash pin is 34, their epic pin will be 3434.

 Good morning boys and girls,

 

I have been monitoring Purple Mash and I am glad to see so many of you using it. I have set a reading challenge (just one chapter today and I'll set chapter two tomorrow). Please read it carefully as I will be setting questions soon. I have set a few more maths challenges this morning too for you to have a go at!

 

Have a lovely day. I am missing you all lots!

Year 3 

Hello and welcome to our class page!

 

I hope you have all had a lovely summer!

I am Mrs Jones and I will be your class teacher for this academic year. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Harrison as our teaching assistant!

We are really looking forward to getting to know your children and we have an exciting year ahead, particularly as we are preparing for our sacramental journey together!

We will keep you updated with what we are up to in class and you can find below the end of year expectations and what we will be learning about this half term!

If you have any queries or questions at any time, please come into school and see us!

See you in September!

Mrs Jones & Mrs Harrison

Spring 1

 

Please find attached the curriculum planner for the first half of our spring term. There is a share meeting on Wednesday 15th January at 9am where you can discuss the curriculum objectives with your child's teacher.

Autumn 2

Autumn 1

World Poetry Day 2019

 To celebrate World Poetry Day 2019 we looked at a variety of performance poems. Our favourite was The School Kid Rap by John Foster which we performed for the whole school.

 

We hope you enjoy the video below. 

Sculpture

In Art this term, we have been learning about Sculpture. We have studied Alberto Giacometti’s work and have designed and made sculptures inspired by his amazing art. We chose to make sculptures based on St Peter. We went on a walk around school and looked for an area  that would be enhanced by our sculptures. We chose the wooded area near the car park and I think the children have done a wonderful job with their art work. When we return to school we will evaluate our work against our designs and write about the process of making our St Peter sculptures.

Key Dates

Homework will be given on Fridays and marked every Wednesday.

Children should read every night  (even if it is one page) and are able to change their books once completed. Parents must ensure that they sign their child's reading record book every time they read. 

Spelling tests will be done every Wednesday and scores will be recorded to help promote and assess progression.

PE lessons are on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Monday 23rd September 2019

 

Hello,

 Just a gentle reminder that our first Sacramental Programme meeting is on Thursday 3rd October 2019 in the church hall at 7pm. It is of vital importance that you attend.

Friday, 20th September, 2019

 

Hello parents and guardians,

The children are settling well into Year 3 and have started to work independently in class. To increase their independency skills we encourage all children to remove their homework and reading books from their own bags and to return it to their bags when we have checked it or marked it.

Please remind your children (as we will do) to bring their reading books in EVERY DAY and their homework in on a Wednesday. Homework will then be marked in class by the children and they can bring it home again on Wednesday evening, if they forget to do this then have Thursday and Friday to remember.

As staff we will not be putting reading books and homework packs into the children's bags. It is their responsibility.

 

Kindest regards,

 

Mrs Jones and Mrs Harrison
