We have made it to the end of another successful week! I have been very impressed with the children’s attitude to learning this week both in school and at home. It is lovely to see that the children are still making great progress with their maths work and are able to divide 2-digit numbers independently even when exchanges and remainders are involved.

Although the children get to see one another each day during our google meets, we thought it would be nice to host a social google meet where the children can have a catch up with their friends (supervised by a teacher). This will be today at 1pm via the meet link in our Wider Curriculum Google Classroom. Following a request from the children, we will also have a fun quiz during this meet. I hope to see lots of you there!

Here is an outline of today’s google meets and assignments.

Google Meet Times

9am – Maths
11am – English
1pm – The Big Year 3 Quiz and catch up with friends
2:45pm – Special mention assembly

Assignments
Maths – Dividing with remainders
English – Writing an alternative traditional tale
Coding – Minecraft coding assignment on code.org

Please send in any pictures of the fun activities you have done at home – we would love to see them!

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Ellis, Mrs Begum and Miss Tombling

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to get outside for a walk in the snow! Here are some pictures from our afternoon in the snow on Friday. Can you believe the size of our snowman? Unfortunately, the rising temperatures got the better of her over the weekend so we have our fingers crossed for more snow in the upcoming weeks.

Monday 11th January

Maths – Multiply 2-digits by 1-digit (2). Please join the 9am Google meet with Miss Ellis via the meet link at the top of the Year 3 Maths 20-21 Google Classroom. We will be consolidating some of the new strategies we looked at last week. I will explain which activities children will need to complete from their maths booklet. Remember to make use of Mathletics and Times Tables Rockstars if you finish the work quickly.

Assembly will be held in the Farfield Assembly classroom at 10:10. If your child is not yet part of this classroom, you will find the joining code on the letter sent home in packs last week.

English – Adverbs. Miss Ellis will be guiding children through a grammar based lesson at 11am via the meet link at the top of the Year 3 English 20-21 Google Classroom. I will then explain a task that I would like you to complete on a Google doc for marking.

Reading – At 1pm Miss Ellis will be hosting another Google meet via the Year 3 English 20-21 Google Classroom. We will be looking at a piece of text together and then you will be given time to answer some comprehension questions independently.

Topic – As Monday is usually our PPA session, Mrs Du Preez has set an RE activity for you to complete. Please head to the Wider Curriculum Google Classroom for more details on this. The sheets that you will need were sent home in your pack last week.
