We're almost there - half term is on the horizon! You've all been doing such a great job. Just think, if things were a bit normal right now, you'd all be tired and grumpy and getting fed up with me and each other....! I miss it, don't you?
At least the weather will be more reliably pleasant now that we're in the last stretch of May with the lovely June approaching.
Keep going for just 5 more days. Be patient with your brothers and sister and with your parents. Everybody is trying their best!
Remember, if you're finding any work tricky, just send me an email letting me know where you're stuck and I'll get back to you with some help. I'm in school this week, so a video is tricky, but if that's what it takes, I'm sure one of the children I'm helping in school won't mind helping me for 5 minutes!
If you're finding it hard not seeing your friends, ask mum or dad to arrange a phone call. Hearing a friend's voice over the phone is scientifically proven to improve your mood.
Let's make this week a happy one!
I hope you've returned fresh and rested after this glorious Bank Holiday weekend! I had a lovely time catching up with friends (virtually), going for walks (physically) and playing a new game which is possibly the most beautiful and chill game since Animal Crossing was invented. (Literally)
This week for maths, year 3, we're skipping Summer Term week 2, because I think you are ok at adding and subtracting fractions within a whole. We did that to death before Easter. This week we're starting with Summer Term Week 3, which is converting pounds and pence.
Just remember that money and fractions are linked. They are! And next year you'll find that it's linked to all decimal numbers ever, so this will help you as you move through the school.
I hope you enjoy this week. I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful work!
Hello year 3!
I want to say well done with the work you've been doing so far this week. I've had some lovely emails.
Monday's maths was quite tricky for a lot of you! So if you were feeling like it was just you - don't worry, it wasn't.
One of you got in touch quite quickly and I whipped together a video explaining the mathematical side of things and talking you through. I've edited it to the main teaching, so that you can have a video to refer to. It might just help make things click.
You can find the video here: https://youtu.be/8e9rmW4d9i8
Keep on going! Enjoy the sunshine when you can! I miss you all and I hope to see you soon.
We are half way through this half term. Bizarre.
Just remember, you've NOT missed months school. It's only been 15 days school days, as of last Friday. It just feels a lot longer because we had two weeks of Easter break in the middle.
This week it is a bank holiday on Friday, but I've put work up for Friday anyway, for those who want something to do and I will be checking my email throughout the day.
Let's get another great week of learning done!
Week 2 Home Learning
I hope you all had a great weekend!
This week you're doing "week 2" of the White Rose maths, not the summer term one yet! I think last week has really helped secure those fractions and decimals for you so I'd like to do the follow up work with it too.
Some of you asked if it was ok to do PE on the same day as your brother or sister - that is fine! Whatever works for you. If you want to move your PE and PE/Music afternoons to match another class, I have no problem with that.
Just make sure you're doing a variety of other activities as well - not just Scratch!
I'd like to see some more history, geography and science going on!
At the top of the page with the book links, I've added a link to a teacher scientist who's been doing science activities for you all, so do have a look with your parents, to see what else you could get up to.
I look forward to seeing how you all get on. I'm in school this week, but I will do my best to help you via email, as usual.
