Week Beginning 18th May 2020
We hope you are all well. This week is National School Sport Week. An email about this has been sent outlining activities for you to take part in each day and we have also put the letter on here so you can access it easily. Remember to take photographs of your sporting activities and email them into school so we can what you have been doing.
This week in Maths you will be problem solving then moving on to converting pounds into pence then adding money. In English work will be based around A Cloudy Lesson. A pack linked to this is attached. The pack contains a range of activities that link to English and other curriculum areas too. For Science we would like you to learn more about plants, what are the different parts of a plant and what are their functions? One of the activities invites you to dissect a plant to examine the different parts. If you would like to do that you will need to have a flower such as a tulip or a lily as these flowers clearly show the different parts.
Look after yourselves Class 3, we miss you very much.

Week beginning May 11th 2020
Hi Year 3,
We hope you are all well. Did you have lots of fun on VE Day? I, (Mrs Thompson) had a lovely time celebrating with my family. We dressed up in red, white and blue clothes, made bunting, buns and cake then had a tea party on our front lawn whilst listening to 1940s music. Unfortunately the cake didn’t rise (I don’t have much luck with making chocolate cakes), but it tasted delightful!
In maths this week we are continuing our work on fractions. We will be using the White Rose Home Learning site again. On Monday we will be ordering fractions, Wednesday and Thursday we will add then subtract fractions and on Friday we will be solving fraction problems. On Tuesday we have a challenge which gives us chance to practise a range of maths skills.
In English we have a range of tasks to do this week. We will need to think about what happens next after looking at funny pictures on Monday and Thursday so that we can write a story or a recount. We have word puzzles to solve too and an animal alphabet to sort out so that should keep us busy.
Again in topic we are back to some of our work linking to Ancient Egypt so you will need your topic grid. On my daily walks I have noticed so many different types of trees, I don’t know what type some of them are so I am going to try and identify them using leaf, twig and blossom identification guides. I thought we could do this together so on our page there are guides for you to use too. We will also be sketching nature in Art and looking more carefully to create observational drawings.
We hope you have a lovely week. We miss you lots.

This week's timetable week beginning 4th May
We hope that you are all well and are looking forward to another week of learning from home.
Here is the timetable for next week. Victory in Europe Day is on Friday this week so we have linked this with your English and Topic learning (Tuesday – Thursday) to it. You will notice that particular sheets are needed to some of the English and topic activities; you will find these in the same place as the timetable on the class page.
In maths we will be continuing with fractions. We are furthering our understanding of equivalent fractions them moving on to comparing fractions. The particular week and day we are using from the website is on the timetable.
We have very much enjoyed chatting to you and your grown- ups again this week. It has also been fabulous to see the wonderful work that you have been doing at home via email. Below is a fabulous poem that Jackson and his Dad have written. We think it sums up the situation we are in at the moment perfectly!
We miss you. Take care of each other.
Mrs Thompson and Mrs Hall
The whole nation is in isolation, and the situation is a strange sensation.
The separation of the population, led to
irritation and max frustration.
The termination of our education, leaves our generation lacking stimulation.
But with determination and collaboration, we will win the fight for liberation.

Home Learning w/c 27th April
We hope you are all well and keeping safe. It was great to speak to most of your grown ups and some of you last week! I didn't manage to catch you all but Mrs Hall or myself will try again this coming week. I really enjoyed hearing about your learning and your news too.
Above is a time table for next week. If you need any sheets printing please contact school and that can be arranged for you. Like I said last week, this is a guide so use it as you and your grown ups see best. At home this week with Charlotte we used Smarties for her fraction learning, this wasn't on her timetable but it made her realise a third is bigger than a quarter!
Take care everyone, Mrs Hall and I are missing you lots.

Hi Year 3!
We hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend and enjoyed playing out in the lovely sunshine.
We have attached a new timetable outlining the learning we would like you to do this week if you and your grown ups so wish. We have dropped the documents needed on this page and have put week beginning 20th April on them so you know they link to this week.
One of us will give you a call this week to catch up and hear what you have been up to. An email will also go out to your grown ups too!
Missing you all lots!
