Year 3             

 

Hello and welcome to Year 3’s class page

A message from your teacher

I hope you are all well and had a lovely Easter and that you haven’t exploded from eating too many chocolate eggs!!  We have been so lucky with the warm weather, at least we can get outside for some daily fresh air which is much needed.

I hope you are managing to work through your home -learning packs and enjoying some of the activities and setting yourself challenges. Remember to read daily and write stories/poems/ keep a diary of what you’ve been doing.

Remember it is important to make time for exercise and opportunities to be creative. There are so many ideas on the websites, especially Twinkl. This is the perfect time to venture out into the garden and explore nature, patterns, shapes and textures. Use your observational skills to draw flowers, insects, leaves and trees. You could take a look out of your window and sketch /create what you see. Your opportunities really are endless!! 

I wonder if any of you have become Master Chefs and helped out in the kitchen? Since being off my family have enjoyed discussing what to eat each night for tea and taking turns to cook. We have enjoyed sitting down and sharing a meal together. Normally everyone is so busy with people coming and going that I often eat on my own. We have also explored various board games and played quizzes, which we don’t normally have the time to do.

So there really are some positives during this very different time in our lives. I know when we return to school, we will appreciate one another more and really value our families and friendship.

I am really missing you all and I’m extremely proud as I picture each and every one of you keeping busy and making the most of this time. I know you will be following our school values- being ready, respectful and safe.

Bye for now

Take Care

Times tables

We are currently focussing on 6x 8x tables. Each pack contains times tables from 6x up to 12x so challenge yourself with these. U tube times table clips are a fun, active way to learn these so check these out. You can also write these out in your time tables books/ purple homework books.

Spellings

Refer to your pack where you will find the spelling grid. Set yourself a spelling challenge and choose ten spellings to practise writing out and test yourself each week. You could write these words out in a sentence. Here are few additional words:
