Happy Summer Holidays Everyone

Thank you for all your hard work over the last few months. I am sure we can all agree, it has been a very strange year. I hope that you all relax and have a lovely summer. I am looking forward to seeing you all in September.

 

Monday 13th July 2020.

Our final Monday morning, lets make it a good one! I have uploaded all this weeks actvities to the folder above- 13th July.

9th July,

The fun continued with the Thursday Bubble today. So many smiles and lots of news to share. I am so glad that so many of the Year 3 children have been able to return (even for a short time) before the end of term, Thank you again for all your support and hard work at home, the children were full of enthusiasm once again. So many of them have now read the Ickabog and are really enjoying it. We ate chocolate biscuits in the forest, pretending they were Hopes of Heavens.

8th July,

We have had another  great day with the Wednesday Bubble, with more children joining us for this session.It is so lovely to see familiar faces back in school. We had a great time having an assembly on Roald Dahl, then discussing our highlights of the year and talking about what we are looking forward to next year. After break, we recapped on addition and subtraction, we used the column method. In the afternoon, we completed our abstract Picasso faces. We were very proud of our work, ther were so colourful. Now we have all completed three faces, in a variety of styles. We finished the day discussing the Ickabog and our favourite bits so far!

6th July 2020

Today was a busy day. We had a sleepy start but once we had woken up there was no stopping us. We completed the White Rose work on multiplication. After break, we all wrote a diary entry from Daisy Dovetail. I was so impressed with the children and how they were able to write as Daisy, expressing her thoughts and feelings so well. In the afternoon, we did some artwork, drawing a castle that we thought King Fred might live in. We added collage detail too.  I have included some pictures in the folders on w/c 6th July.

Happy Monday, I hope that the sunshine returns and that this week is as much fun as last week. Thankyou so much for all your hard work and enthusiasm. I have uploaded all the work into the files, 6th July. Have a good time completing it. 

 

Mrs Entwistle

I've had another lovely day! It was such a pleasure to see more children and to start to feel like things are slowly returning to normal. We have had a great time being back together, discussing our thoughts and feelings about the last few weeks. It is hard for the children to understand that this part of their lives might be referenced for a long time to come, and may even change the way people live and work ( for a long while at least.) Children amaze us constantly. Over the last few days and weeks, their enthusiasm and energy for being back together and back at school has been contagious. I love my job,  hearing children say     " I've really missed school, " or " It's so lovely to be back with my friends,"  " Thank you for today, it was brilliant!" make me realise how much I've often taken being a teacher for granted and how lucky I am. 

Thank you all for your hard work and support. 

See you all next week. 

Wednesday

It was so lovely to have more of our Year 3 children in school today, they came in with huge smiles and settled so quickly into the new routine.  The day was filled with lots of fun activities, games and art. We are looking forward to seeing the other half of the class tomorrow. 

 

It is fabulous to see how so many of you are enjoying the Ickabog, we now have lots of Ickabog pictures, but also maps of Cornucopia and pictures and decriptions of lots of the characters. I was also very impressed with the comprehension and vocabulary work that children completed in and out of school. 

In maths, it was great to see how well you had remembered fractions. Again, thank to all the children who shared their work with us. I will be uploading similar activities this week, as I think that many children really enjoyed these. 

It will be lovely to see many of you later this week. I know that it may seem strange to come back into school after all the weeks away, but we will have a lovely day together. 

Here's looking forward to a super week

Mrs Entwistle 

 

 I have reorganised the files on the website and tried to make things slightly easier to access. New folders will be at the top of the page with the date on. Mrs Tench has also added some science activities to keep you busy for the next few weeks. These activities are based on Light so you will be able to share your existing knowledge with us.

I hope that you have enjoyed the new J K Rowling  book, The Ickabog. This was a book she wrote several years ago and she read it to her own young children, a chapter each night. She has now released it a chapter at a time. If you logon to the page https://www.theickabog.com/home/ you can access all the story and the explanation about how J K Rowling.  This week we will be looking at the next couple of chapters, 3, 4. Thank you to all of you who have drawn pictures of what you thought a Ickabog looked liked. They were fantastic!  J K Rowling has also launched a competition asking children to illustrate the book, so I encourage the children to draw their own illustrations as one of the activities. 

As always, BBC Bitesize, Oak Academy, Twinkl  and White Rose Maths continue to be  great resources for Year 3, ensuring that the children are up to date with the terminology and objectives for this year group. They all continue to provide free home learning tasks, most of them daily. 

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

Take care and have a super week
