Dear Year 3,
We hope you and your families are all keeping well and safe.
We have some exciting news to share with you, but before that, we would like to wish a very happy 8th birthday to Farouk, Jennah and Natasha in Monet class, Lily, Isabella and Hope in Picasso class and Afreen and Angelina in Fortnum class; all who have their birthdays this month. We hope your special day was/will be filled with lots of love, fun and laughter.
Back to the exciting news – you can now send in selected pieces of your home learning each week, either via phase email (it could be a photo with a short caption telling us what it is you have done), or dropped into the school post box (there’ll be one outside the school gates). If your parents want to send it via e-mail, it needs to say your class name and your first name only in the subject line. We will check your work and give you a quick feedback via the phase e-mail or by telephone.
This week, we are revising unit and non-unit fractions in maths, strengthening our inference and rhyming skills in English and learning lots of interesting things about islands, in IPC. Please do check the fantastic resources we have uploaded for you and remember to login to Mangahigh to try out the maths games that have been assigned to you. (Login details are on the maths, home learning file on the school website). How many of you can earn a gold medal, we wonder?
Remember, it is important that you do some, if not all, of your home learning every day.
By now, I am sure that you are all aware of how important it is to keep yourselves safe, both physically and mentally. Please continue to keep your hands clean by washing them regularly with soap, and talk to your parent(s)/carer(s) if anything is worrying you.
For the past few days, we have been enjoying strolls either along the river Thames, in our local area or in the countryside and pursuing our hobbies, as well as being busy planning lessons for you. We are all thoroughly enjoying our work, exercise and hobbies.
Hopefully, you too are keeping yourselves busy and active. There are so many things that you can explore and learn while at home. For example, learning a new language or improving your French (maybe just a few words or simple sentences using BBC Bitesize or YouTube videos with parental permission and guidance, of course!), playing an instrument, cooking, baking, decorating, sketching or even learning a new sport.
How exciting would it be to share it with your friends at school when we return?
It goes without saying that we are missing you all incredibly and look forward to hearing from you.
Please stay safe, stay positive, be kind and look after one another.
Let’s keep happy and healthy!
Mrs Kaleem, Mrs Harris, Miss French, Mrs Dowse, Mrs Bitmead, Mr Kyle and Mrs Siddiqui
