Summer 2 Home Learning

Week  - WB 06.07.2020

Dear Year 3 family,

I can't quite believe that another month has passed! At least the sun is shining today, I've missed it! Last week you all found out who your new teacher is going to be in September. Don't forget to introduce yourself to Miss Hindle at year5@st-thomas.lancs.sch.uk 

Thank you to those who have emailed be your heart challlenges. it's not too late if you haven't done this yet, there's still time. Lots of you also seem to be enjoying the Purple Mash that we are trialing, drop me a line and let me know your thoughts. Also the RNIL have sent through some resources which I shall email you. They say. this summer, their Lifeguards can’t be on every beach, meaning a heightened water safety risk to beach goers. They are asking schools to help share some important messages to children and their families.

Finally, keep sending your work through, I always love to see it and will reply when I am able. I've had a couple of letters this week from some of you so I'm off to reply to them now.

Keep safe,

Love Mrs D x

Week  - WB 29.06.2020

Dear Year 3 family,

I hope you are all well. This week is our well being week and I have some things that you might like to do. It is even more important to keep the whole of our self well this year, physical and emotionally. The definition of well being is "the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy." What can you do to be healthy and feel happy? As always keep in touch and let me know what you get up to this week. Will you be taking part in the heart challenge?

Be happy

Week 2 - WB 15.06.2020

Dear Year 3 family,

Good morning everyone, hope you are all well. Mrs Mason has asked if you could all please have a look at the “Love My Beach” website, www.lovemybeach.org  some of our children have been getting involved in the organised beach litter pick! Maybe you have, if so I’d love to know. The website has lots of information and has the times and venues of future beach cleans. Why not get involved?

Don’t forget that BBC Bitesize is a great resource to use alongside the plans below. Also there are some good activities on Crickweb which you may find useful. http://www.crickweb.co.uk

Also, I have upload some some sports challenges, this time it’s cricket, rounders and dance. We need 10 entries to get a virtual games mark! Give it a go!

Finally, this half term we would be studying the Romans. I know a lot of you, like me, enjoy History. So I would like you to have a go at producing a mini Romans topic. There are lots of great resources out there, have a look at this website to get you started. http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/Romans.html

Have a good week,

Love Mrs D x

I have also uploaded a Science unit on light for the half term, this has again been recommended by Lancashire Science Advisors. Additionally, I have chosen our new book for the half term… all will be revealed on YouTube on Wednesday, I’ll send out a link.

Next week see us having a first virtual sports day, see below. Also there's a golf challenge, who knows we might have the next Tiger Woods in our midst! I hope you have been enjoying listening to "The Iron Man" story. Did you know they made the book into a film called "The Iron Giant"? Maybe you could write a review if you watch it and send it me. If you enjoyed the story you might like to read "The Iron Woman" too! Take care, stay safe and be alert!

20.04.20

Dear Year 3 family,

Welcome back! I hope you are all well and all had a cracking Easter holiday!

The Summer Term has now begun and home learning is set to continue. Moving forwards, I will be adding work weekly to our class page on the school website. I just wanted to say that you are all doing really well, children and parents alike! New experiences for you all, I hope my Year 3 children are being good students for you parents!

Parents I really want to say a big thank you to you for all the support that you have given your children to make the best of their time at home during this time. Thank you for caring about the amount of work that is being completed at home and I want to reassure you that what you are doing is enough.

 Please don’t feel that you need to operate the same school hours, the same school structure, this is your home first and foremost. Do something educational each day but also take the opportunity to do other things. In these unprecedented times we are all trying our best to balance home, school and work! Please try to see this as extra quality time with your child, this situation will probably never happen again and whilst it is of course important to keep learning going  it is also important to spend time doing family things, having the opportunity to learn a new skill, being able to sit and talk to name a few things. Behaviours may have changed and it is certain that new challenges will have been faced by all family members. We all have probably felt worried, lonely and missed our friends and family. Take this time, be kind to yourself and each other. When the children return to school we, the teachers, will bridge the learning gaps that have occurred. But what about now I hear you say?  What should I be doing? Personally, as a mother and a teacher I think we should be taking advantage of this time and enjoy it, make memories, make plans, make the most of this opportunity. Let our children be children. Make mud pies and potions in the garden and dance like no one is watching. Play on the X-Box, talk to their friends, learn how to make a cup of tea, but what we, as parents, shouldn’t do is feel guilty because the children are having fun instead of “school work”. Yes I would encourage the children to read every day and do some maths but equally also bake, have fun with Lego, climb trees and play video games as they are all learning.

Parents, you are raising children and doing your best at a time when all this madness is going on so if there are days when you just feel like you need to take the pressure off, do it! Have a cuppa and a slice of cake, start the weekend earlier, look after yourselves. Don't insist on 2 hours of learning time if they are resisting it. See if you can make learning fun through their play. Remember you guys are the ones who taught them to walk and to talk, all through fun and creative ways, no timetabling or worksheets involved!  Let the children know that they can talk to you, whether it’s to share a funny story or to share a worry, that is what they will remember when they look back at this time. They need your reassurance. You are doing the right thing by being with your children and showing them the love of your family.

 

So my Year 3 family I hope this letter finds you well. Stay safe, keep kind and know we are all in this together and that we will come out the other side.

Hi everyone!

 I hope you are all well. Please see below the Easter grid that is for the duration of what would be our Easter holidays (08.04.20-20.04.20) 

 I can't wait to see what you get up, please keep the photos coming! I am currently working on uploading some of the ones I have received so far, so keep your eyes peeled, thank you!

 I will be taking my Easter break during this time too, so I will only be checking my email once, probably mid-week. A new grid will be posted on Monday 20th April.

 Have a lovely Easter. I hope the Easter Bunny brings you egg-sactly what you want, that you have an egg-citing time and that you are egg-statically happy! Maybe after all those eggs you might need to do some egg-streme eggs-ercise! Do you like my egg-cellent jokes? I think they are cracking!

 Keep kind and be safe! 

Home Learning Gallery! Wow we have been busy,just scroll down to see!

Dear parents,

It was really lovely to speak to you all today. I am missing all the children so much. I have loved reading at all the emails you have sent me telling me what the children have been doing and the photos really brighten my day through this strange time we find ourselves in! Below is a copy of the powerpoint I emailed you. We all need a bit of Kevin's "can do" attitude at the moment.

Keep kind and stay safe.

Love Mrs D x

Please see below for our Topic Web.

WORLD BOOK DAY 2020

Today, World Book Day, we all dressed up as book characters and enjoyed thinking and talking about some of our favourite stories and books. We also learned that for our Science Day tomorrow, an actual rocket that has been launched into space is coming to school!!!

February 12th 

This week we have had great fun working in our Nature Journal. 

"We used all things from nature on the ground to build a nest for our imaginary birds. We had to work as part of a team and think of an imaginary bird to design a nest that we thought was good for that type of bird. We had great fun working as a team." by Lucy 

Topic Web - Spring 2020

Please see below for our Topic Web for Spring Term. 

Please note that Homework will now be given out on a Monday to be returned the following Monday.

Friday 1st November

Last Friday was our TT Rock Stars day where we celebrated and practised all things Times Tables!! Rock on!! We had a whole morning working out different times tables calculations and we thoroughly enjoyed rocking out as groovy rock stars!! See us in action -

This week in Year 3 we have started to look at the Stone Age and considered the chronology of it. We put the dates in order in our books. 

Friday 1st November -

This week we have been observing and exploring rocks.

Please keep checking for regular updates.

Monday 25th November

This week in Science and Nature we have been looking at what a herbivore, carnivore and omnivore is and what they might eat. We played a sorting activity.  Also we looked at how sycamore seeds spin and then we made our own with paper, scissors and a paper clip. We folded the paper and cut it and threw it into the air. It span, even if we tipped it up it corrected itself!! It was an enjoyable activity (by Millie and Rhys).

Friday 15th November

Last week was Children in Need day. We all dressed up in our pyjamas and had some fun exercising with Joe Wicks. We did some Pudsey bear colouring and the school raised over £200 for Children in Need.

Monday 11th November

This week in Science we were looking at rocks to see if they could float and see if they fizzed when they were in vinegar (a type of acid). We looked at limestone, slate and chalk. In the classroom we were looking at fossils to see what their features were. It was extremely amazing!! (by Eva and Otis).

This week we held elections using the British Value of democracy, which means by the people. The class voted and these children were elected: Lucy and Rhys as Eco Warriors and Otis and Alanna for our school council. Well done to our representatives! 

OUR STONE AGE DAY!...

We have been doing lots of fun stuff in our work about the Stone Age. Last week we had a whole Stone Age day!! Parents came in to help us and we all dressed up in Stone Age costumes! In the morning we had Initiate Theater come in and we did some acting out of Stone Age scenes. In the afternoon we made Stone Age pudding with berries, Stone Henge out of biscuits, learned about Stone Age animal and even did some cave painting. We also sat around the camp fire and read "How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth". At the end of the day we ate Stone Henge!! What will the archaeologists say?!

Topic Web

Please see below for our Autumn Term Topic web.

Please see below for our Topic Web.

This week we worked in twos to produce a poster about Stonehenge. We have really enjoyed our Stone Age topic. See our gallery below for other Stone Age work we have done this week.
