We are so lucky to have had yet another day full of snow! It is a surprise that I came out of the Year 3 snowball fight alive to tell the tale (and write this blog) after being ambushed!

Thank you for yet another week of brilliant home learning. It is great to now see most children responding to feedback on their work. Can I please remind everyone to take time at the beginning or end of a session to look back at teacher comments on their previous work and respond.

We have been completing some active challenges in our sessions this week to encourage children at home to stay fit and healthy – look out for a performance record sheet in your next pack. I will explain on Monday how we will be using this.

IMPORTANT: If you have any colour banded books at home, can I ask that you please return these when you collect your packs today. You will find new books in your pack!

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
