Morning all, 

Can you believe that it is June already?  The time is certainly flying by, I hope that you are still having fun and enjoying the sunshine. Hopefully you have all enjoyed a happy and healthy half term and had a break from your home schooling. Thank you so much to all your mums, dads and older brothers and sisters for helping you with the activities that we have provided so far.

I have really enjoyed seeing the fabulous things that you have been up to, from singing, sweetie making, walking, map making, alphabet challenges, writing to famous authours and creating scrap books. Well done to each and everyone of you. 

My family and I have had a lovely weekend, eating ice lollies, paddling in the paddling pool and walking along the river. We have seen lots of new babies, goslings, ducklings, and cygnets too.

I have put up some new work for you to complete. This week, we will be looking at fractions, particularly tenths. Remember to keep to date with counting in different ways 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 8's, 10's, 50's and 100's. Show off to anyone and everyone that will listen to you and log on to Daily Ten and Hit the Button to make sure you are as fast as ever. 

In Literacy, I have included a comprehension from Wind in the Willows. This was one of my favourite stories when I was younger. Toad always made me laugh, but also made me quite cross at the same time. Perhaps you could read the book or watch an old episode on YouTube? I have also included a unit on poetry focussing on Onomatopoeia, something that I think you should enjoy having a go at. 

In Science, we are still exploring Light. Have a look at the activities to do with Mirrors. I hope that you will have fun completing them. 

As always, BBC Bitesize continues to be a great resource for Year 3, ensuring that the children are up to date with the terminology and objectives for this year group. 

If anyone has any problems, please email me at and I will be happy to help:

Take care and have a super week

Best wishes

Good Morning. I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend filled with fun things.  We have had a relaxed few days, including reading, movies, dog training and a take away meal from the local pub.

Last week was the 200th year anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale.She was born on the 12th May 1820 in Florence, Italy. She is remembered affectionately in history as the Lady with the Lamp, she founded modern nursing and taught the vital importance of hand washing and cleaniness and how this could prevent disease. I have set a mini project about this female icon,  including a comprehension, a timeline and a fact file. Please look at the spellings I have included and then you could complete the game on spelling frame. I would also encourage you to do a science experiment, to compare washing hands in without soap, with soap and using hot or cold water. I really hope that you enjoy learning about her again and how her work lives on today.

In maths, I have included some more work on perimeter, some challenges and some creative maths from First for Maths.   I have also included an art activity on drawing faces. As always BBC Bitesize has some great short activities for you to complete, looking at a whole range of subjects, click on daily lessons and select Year 3. If you find it too difficult, go back to year 2, if you think you need a challlenge after you have completed year 3, try Year 4. Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Friday. A really big thank you to all the children who have completed a blog or a scrapbook and let us know how much work you are doing. Well done. 

Good Morning. Wow, another week has flown by! I hope that you are all well and happy, and that you enjoyed your VE day celebrations and the Bank Holiday sunshine.  If you scroll down the class page, you should see my VE day video, I hope that you enjoy it, we had a lovely day. We have lots of talented neighbours, who played music throughout the afternoon. It was also lovely to see everyone sat at the end of their driveways and we enjoyed chatting (shouting) across the fences and road, waving our flags and remembering those who gave up so much. 

Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to complete some of the work, send in photographs, complete scrapbooks, blogs and videos. I am so proud of you all. Well done.

This week I have uploaded some more files with some multiplication, division work, some more time work, work on conjunctions and some spelling work.  I have also included a brilliant Literacy pack from Literacy Counts, that has some fabulous writing ideas and games, a creative maths pack and  a science pack on light and refelctors.I really hope that you enjoy looking through them and trying the tasks. As always, complete what you can and have fun, make memories and learn new things. 

Have a good week. 

Mrs Entwistle
