Welcome to Year 3
Hope you are well and enjoying this gorgeous weather. Sorry I didn't write last week but I had a very busy week in school with Miss Tonkin and Mrs Welch getting the school ready for some children to return. Yet another amazing home learning week from Year 3. I am very proud.
Education City - Well done to all the following children who not only accessed the learning but also received a score of over 90% some also had 100%. Huge congratulations to the following: Alfie, Amber, Amelia, Emilia, Esmee, Finley, George, Harry, Jack, Kira, Logan, Macie, Millie, Olivia, Riley, Ruan and Tyson.
Arithmetic - Well done to all the children who completed the tasks set this week. 15 children on Monday for Place Value, 15 on Tuesday for Addition/Subtraction, 17 on Wednesday for Multiplication/Division and 14 on Thursday for Fractions. Great scores too. Come on everyone else, we need you.
MyOn - Last week Year 3 read a total of 118 books! Well done everyone. It is a fantastic resource and very easy to use. When you have finished reading (or listening) to a book you then take an AR quiz on it just like you would in school. Come on all Year 3, we don't want Year 5 winning again, do we?
Look how many books these children have read since we started using it:
Martha and I have been busy in the garden over the bank holiday and decided to paint some terracotta pots to grow sunflowers in. We have given a pot to everyone in the family and we are having a competition to see who can grow the tallest sunflower. Why don't you see if you could try and beat us and join in with the competition? You could paint a pot too if you wanted to. We are going to measure the sunflower each week and keep a record. I'll keep you updated on here. Join in the competition and see if you can grow a sunflower taller than mine. (I'm not very good at looking after flowers so I'm sure you will beat me). Send in the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can share them on this page.
Once again, thank you so much for the lovely video that you made, it put a huge smile (and a few tears) on my face.
Have a lovely rest of the half term. Speak soon.
Wow! What a lot of learning you all did last week. Well done to all of you that are accessing Education City regularly - 23 of you this week, that is fantastic. Our highest has been 26, let's see if we can go back to that!
Another success has been the Arithmetic. By completing the arithmetic everyday you are keeping all the methods taught so far fresh in your head. This will make it easier for you when you return to school. A huge well done to Alfie, Amelia, Charley-Dee, Emilia, Esmee, Ethan, Finley, George, Harry, Isla, Jack, Kira, Macie, Olivia, Riley, Reuben, Ruan, and Tyson.
I can see that you have also been busy doing lots of reading on MyOn. Last week, you read 75 books! But, a special mention has to be made to George who has read 33 books so far. That is amazing George, very proud of you! There are some great books on there, make sure you all have a look.
This week's learning theme looks really good. It is Art week. You will see that one of the activities set is "Pointillism". Pointillism is similar to the Benday dots that we were using in class with our Roy Lichtenstein style art work. Pointillism is smaller and closer together. I think you will all be fantastic at producing some great art week. Can't wait to see it!
I had a great week in school last week and it was lovely to celebrate VE day in school. I know that lots of you celebrated VE day at home. In my street, we all took a picnic into our front gardens and celebrated with neighbours in the street. We even had a band playing songs, it was lovely! The scones in the photos were made by Mr Campbell, they were delicious! The biscuits were also homemade. Mrs Whitford gave me the recipe for the custard biscuits that she makes in school. These were yummy although not as good as Mrs Whitfords!
Keep up the good work this week. Year 3, you are showing great resilience and perseverance. Keep doing what you are doing. You are amazing and making me very proud.
Missing you all.
Well done to Olivia who has been keeping so busy!
Kira has made a superb Roman shield!
Hope you are all well? I had a busy week at school last week with Miss Tonkin and Mrs Welch, we had great fun dressing up as Superheroes on Friday! Look at the School Learner page on here for photos.
Over the weekend, I painted some planters that Mr Campbell had made and went for a long walk with one of my dogs, Peppa on the clay trails. Can you see her funny bottom teeth?
You have all been incredibly busy as well working very hard. I am super proud of you all. Last week 25, yes, 25 of you accessed all the tasks on Education City, that is incredible. Well done to all of you. Please keep it up!
You have also been completing your Arithmetic. Well done to Alfie, Amelia, Amelie, Emilia, Ethan, Finley, George, Isla, Logan, Olivia, Riley, Reuben, Esmee, Harry, Macie, Ruan, and Tyson.
Have you had a look at this week's learning theme, it looks great with lots of activities on. I'm sure you will enjoy doing them.
Have another great week, keep doing what you are doing. You and your parents are all amazing!
Stay safe, missing you all

Hope that you have all had a lovely Easter! I bet you had lots of chocolate. Did you have an Easter Egg hunt in your garden? We did and I was very lucky and found 2 large eggs which I am munching my way through! It has been lovely weather and I have been able to do lots of jobs in my garden; painting fences, walls and furniture. I would love to see and know what you have all been up to. Perhaps you could write me a letter and we can post them on this page. I know that many of you are posting on our Facebook page which is wonderful but if you could also send news to either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org then everyone else will also see all the fantastic things you have been doing.
We have had some lovely news this week; Jacob has become a big brother! His little sister, Emily, arrived safely on Friday 10th April at 12.20 weighing 7 lbs 5 oz. Congratulations to Jacob and all his family!
Well done to all the children accessing TTRS. At the moment, Olivia is the one to beat. She is answering questions in 6.45 seconds and has amassed 184, 321 coins and is now a Headliner! Fantastic Olivia! Chasing her is Isla who is answering in 8.33 seconds, amazing!

Well done to Alfie for making this amazing Roman dagger!
It was great to hear from Scarett today and find out what she has been up to. She has been enjoying the sun and reading outside as well as making a Roman building with the help of her dad; she is really getting into this topic. Scarlet had her guitar lesson with Kari on zoom and really enjoyed it.
Wow! What a brilliant Roman shield and sword, Emilia! Thank you for showing us.
Thank you, Finley, for sending us these photos of you making a paracord. What concentration!

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine as much as you can? As you know, your child was really enjoying learning to play a brass instrument in school. They were progressing so well. To support their learning in the lessons, Anna, the music teacher uses a website called Charanga (instructions on how to access the site is below). Mrs Batten will be texting out to you your child's username and password in order for your child to access the different activities that Anna will be setting. Please encourage your child to participate in these activities. They thoroughly enjoyed them in the lessons. The activities include singing, learning about rhythm, different genres of music etc. It is hoped that we will continue with the learning of the instruments when we return to school and this will support the learning.

Thank you, Harry, for the photo of you practising your guitar with Kari. It's lovely to see you're keeping up with lessons!
Wow! Those pasties look yummy, Olivia! When Mr Walden saw these photos, it made him feel very hungry!
