Questions about the Coronavirus book

We are all living through history. Here is something to use to remember it. We can create a keepsake of this time for us to look back on. Print it off and fill it in :)

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. 


I am about to set some more 2dos on Purple Mash, Hope you enjoy them!

Good afternoon Year 3. I hope you have had a lovely weekend. You could write an email to tell me what you've been up to (although I know we can't do much), it would be nice to hear from you. Our class email address is Year3@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk .

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!!!

I miss you all! Have a lovely day.

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! 

Have a lovely day.

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 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!

Please encourage your child to complete all set tasks with care and pride. I will be marking work sent via Purple Mash daily. If your child needs further guidance with the tasks they can send me a message via Purple Mash and I will respond.

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.

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. 


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



 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
