Google Classroom and Google Meets

Firstly, well done to our first home learner of the week Alfie last week. Alfie was my home learner of the week for making a great effort and start to his online learning. Myself and Ms Slater were very impressed! He had a real good go at all of the tasks set and showed evidence for these. Well done Alfie!🙂

I wonder who our home learner of the week will be this week!

Secondly, well done to those who completed all of their TT Rockstar sessions last week.

Andrew, Germanas, Alfie and Umar – Keep up the good work!

Since launching EPIC readers again we read 25 books between us all in 1 day!! WOW, well done!

Oak Academy are also now offering a free virtual library. Every week a popular children’s author or illustrator will provide free books, exclusive videos and their top three recommended reads. This week is Jacqueline Wilson (one of my favourite authors as a child). You can access this from here.

Lastly, tomorrow we will be starting our Google Meets. I know you have been looking forward to these, (as have I) so please make sure you have had permission so that you can join. A permissions form was sent via Parent Mail for these.

I look forward to seeing you all!

Not the start to the year we were hoping for!

Hello everyone!

Happy New Year! I hope this blog finds you well. How was your Christmas break? Leave a comment below to tell me all about it! I can’t wait to hear. Myself and Ms Slater are missing all of you in school!

Thank you to those who have sent in their home learning this week. From next week it will be more interactive on Google Classroom online. There is information your adults will need to read before you are allowed on because we need their permission. This was sent through Parent Mail. I have also attached some useful information on how it is used. I look forward to us all learning together next week remotely!

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the snow!!


The last week of school this year!

I can’t quite believe we have now finished school for the year! What a term it has been!

I am so proud and amazed with how the children have adapted to the changes and settled so well into Year 3.

The children were thrilled to hear we were having another math’s morning this week but not only that, it was also linked to Christmas!

We recapped our learning of clocks by telling the times Santa landed in different cities around the world. Some of us then discovered where he visited first and last! We also went Christmas shopping, finding the total of different items and seeing what we could buy for different amounts.

Due to CONVID restrictions this year we were unable to sing for our Christmas service so we learnt Silent Night in Makaton. Take a look below.

We ended the week making ‘Happy Holiday’ cards for our loved ones.

Well done to those who received a behaviour certificate this half term and achieved 100% attendance.

Zaina is my learner of the week this week because she has formed some lovely relationships with others this half term. You are always willing to help both children and adults in the classroom and at playtimes. What a lovely member of our class you are!

Germanas also recieved his TT rockstars certificate for completing all of his sessions. Well done to you!


Thank you for your continued support this term, I hope you have a lovely Christmas break and will see you in the New Year. School is back open on Wednesday 6th January 2021.

Making Bell Beakers

This week we done something all of the children had been waiting for, making bell beakers! After a detailed demonstration the children got straight to it making sure they included all of their detailed patterns from their designs. They turned out great! Well done Year 3.

In school we have been looking at our Advent learning each morning which the children are thoroughly enjoying, particularly the challenges! On Friday Hugo explained to the class about Chanukah which is a Jewish celebration and showed the class a picture of him lighting the first candle. Well done Hugo it was very interesting to hear all about it.

On Friday we also enjoyed our Christmas jumper day and eating our school Christmas dinner! It definitely got us into the Christmas spirit. I’m looking forward to lots more Christmas fun next week Year 3!

My learner of the week this week was Ayesha because not only is she a great role model to have in the class in terms of behaviour and learning attitude, she is also a great role model for collaboration. Ayesha works extremely well in a group knowing the right balance between listening to others and sharing her ideas. She is always willing to help her peers with enthusiasm and has lovely relationships with others in the class. Thank you Ayesha, we are very lucky to have you in 3HL. Well done!

My TT Rockstars for last week were Ruby and Germanas for completing all of their weekly sessions. Well done!

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend. See you next week for our last week before we break up!
