Picnic Day!

Hello everyone, we hope you’ll be able to attend the class picnic on Wednesday.  Please remember to bring a picnic blanket and please, please, please remember any school reading books that you need to return – our class boxes are looking pretty sparse at the moment!

We’re really looking forward to seeing you tomorrow x

 

Whoop Whoop – we’ve made it!

Well done all of you for all of the work you have done throughout this past few months.  Thank you to all of the amazing parents out there who have worked to hard to help you with your home learning as well as working from home themselves.  We have been so proud of all of you and so thankful for your support.

We really hope that many of you will be able to visit for the picnic on Wednesday, myself and Mrs Smout would love to see you.  You’ll also be able to collect your school workbooks from this year.

As it is the last week of term we’d usually fill the week with nice activities, so with this in mind we will still post a link to the White Rose maths work if you wish to continue with this, otherwise we will just post a selection of activities that you may want to try over the week rather than a post of things to do everyday.  You are still of course welcome to message me and send any work but please don’t feel that you have to send something you have completed everyday.

End of term suggested activities:

We’d normally have a really good classroom sort out this week – emptying trays, sorting through cupboards and drawers, tidying and organising reading books and so on.  We though that this may be a good time to have a good sort out and tidy of your room at home or ask your parents if there are any other jobs that need doing around the house.

We’d also normally be doing our Design and Technology weeks around this time, so can you do some baking with and adult or design and make a healthy lunch.  Can you choose a product in your house – a lamp, a bag, some shoes, a desk – anything really- and then extend the range by designing your own version?  Label your designs with what functions and features your product has, what materials it would be made out of and why.  You may also choose to write and design an advert for your product using your best persuasive language.

Have a snuggly film afternoon – needs no explanation!!!

Go out on an adventure – go for a walk as a family around the beautiful countryside in which you are so lucky to live.

Have a picnic lunch in your garden if the weather’s nice.

Have a board game morning.  If others in your family are able to spend some time together with you it could be great fun – although watch it doesn’t start too many arguments if you are all competitive! It could be a very long summer otherwise!

Have a home sports day get the family involved (sorry again!)  try the standing long jump, egg and spoon race, a sack race with old pillow cases, make an obstacle course – there are lots of events you can recreate at home.

Enjoy some quiet reading time, maybe even take your book on your walk and find a nice spot where you could all sit for a peaceful reading session – like a book picnic! Or build a den in your room where you can hide away with your book.

Host an end of term lockdown family quiz – you could ask questions to do with all of the topics you have covered this term, any films or tv shows you’ve watched, games you’ve played and so on.  You could maybe even get other family members involved over Zoom.

You could host your own family music festival day.  You could find out about and listen to your parents’ favourite music and have a disco in the garden.

Have some time to just be creative – draw a picture, write a story, a poem or a song, make up a dance or gymnastic routine.

Try some more of the Draw with Rob videos from you tube.

Have a go at some of the other Year 3 or Year 2 units from the ilearn2 website, please just email to ask if you need a pupil code for any of the units.

See if you have any old card tubes from wrapping paper or kitchen roll – or better still any old guttering – and make a marble run or ball run in the garden.

Find some time to treat your grown ups and say thank you for all of the time, effort and energy they have put in to teaching you at home.  They definitely deserve some treats, make them a card, a medal, a trophy, you could ask someone to help you make them breakfast in bed (be sensible and safe!) or offer to get them a cold drink from the fridge! (They’ll need it!)

Most importantly, celebrate all the wonderful work you have done be proud of yourselves and enjoy your last official week as Year 3s.  You have all been amazing – We will miss you so much next year.

Reading Books

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well and are looking forward to the summer holidays.

Please can we request that everyone has a good search at home to find any school reading books that may be lurking around?  Please bring them into school when you attend your class picnic where a large labelled box will be placed to collect the books for your class.

It would be really helpful to have the books back next week so that we can ensure they are returned to the correct classroom, ready for next year.

I will also place boxes by the office if you are not attending the picnic so that you can drop them off at any point over next week.

We hope you have enjoyed reading them and we look forward to seeing you at the picnics next week!

PS

Please could I also ask if any of you have a book at home that you have enjoyed but no longer read and would like to donate it to our class library for the Year 3s next year that would be really appreciated.  If would also be really lovey if you could stick a little note in the front with a sentence about the book and who it is from as I really think this will encourage others to choose that book.

For example

This is a really funny adventure story.

I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you in advance to any of you who are able to do this.

Friday 3rd July

Well we have come to the end of our transition week 🙁

It has been so lovely getting to know you and hearing from so many of you over the week.  We hope you are really looking forward to September and we will be busy planning lots of lovely things for us to do in our first half term back.

Today we’d like you to think about your hopes and dreams for the future.  Be as ambitious as you like!

We’d like you to think carefully about what you would like to be when you are older. We wont hold to it forever, but we would like you to think carefully about subjects you enjoy, what you think is exciting, what you like finding out about and what you are passionate about.   What skills and qualities do you have that would make you suited to this particular career?

You may like to use the sheet below to write about your dream job and draw a picture.

Afternoon

Following on from your work this morning about your drams for the future, we’d like you to share with us where in the world you would love to go, if money were no object!

Would you want to travel to a tropical island?  Would you want to climb a mountain? Would you want to visit a rain forest? See the Northern Lights?  Go on an African safari?

You can draw a picture and describe the place you’d love to visit.  Or if you are able to discuss your ideas with an adult, you could maybe research the type of place you would like to go.  So for example, if you’d like to see the Northern Lights, which countries could you visit?  What continent are they in?  Can you find them on a world map?  How would you travel there? How long would it take?  What kind of place would you stay?  You could find some pictures make a poster on the computer about your chosen place.

We hope you have fun looking forward to the future and to next year.  We are really looking forward to meeting you all properly and welcoming you all back to school as Year 3.

Thank you for a lovely week.

Hello everyone, we hope you had a good day yesterday.

English 

For your English work today we’d like you to think about the work you have done over the past year.  Normally we would do this exercise as part of writing our reports, but We thought it would still be nice for you to reflect upon this past year and hopefully look forward to the next.

So today we would like you think about the following sentence starters and see if you can complete them.  Please think carefully and try to give specific examples in your answers, it could be about work you completed in school with Mrs Pope, or during home learning.

This year I have enjoyed learning about …

I am really good at….

Next year in school I would like to get better at…

Wednesday 1st July

Hello everyone I hope you have enjoyed your work today and I can’t wait to read all of your lovely writing from yesterday.

English 

Today I’d like to find out about you as a reader.  What kind of books do you enjoy? Who are your favourite authors? What is the best book you have read recently? What books do you want to read next?  What other things do you read? (poems, magazines, websites)  Who do you read with?  Where do you enjoy reading?

Please think carefully about all of these questions with an adult.  I would like you to make a poster either on paper, PicCollage if you have an ipad, or any other program such as Word.  I have done a template below which you may want to use and photograph or edit and email it back to me.  I would also like you to take a photo or include a photo in your poster of either your bookshelf at home, or your favourite place to read.

Afternoon

This afternoon I’d like you to do some exercise! Have a go at this exercise class.  It’s one of my favourites as it combines dance, aerobics, boxing training and yoga.  Be warned – it’s hard work, so you may want to see if an adult at home fancies an exercise challenge and try it together!

Have fun.
