This week we reflected on the year that has passed since the first lockdown in the UK. We pray for all those who lost loved ones during this difficult times. ‘This storm too shall pass, that’s Gods promise. When life has turned upside down, remember that God has better days planned.’

We have been busy writing and finalising the Boudicca speeches ready to perform on Dress Up Day on Tuesday. We’re looking forward to seeing all the children dressed up ready for a day of Roman fun.

In Maths we continued to look at right angles turns clockwise and anti clockwise. The children thought carefully about their thinking and the different strategies they used to solve the problems.

In Science, we are excited to see that some of our plants are starting by to grow!! We set up an experiment to see what conditions plants thrive in. Some of us wanted to know if compost was needed for a seed to go. We put a seed in soil and a seed in paper towel- we’ll wait and see what happens.

Have a lovely weekend

Friday 19th March

Something very topical happened yesterday following our day learning about volcanoes. A volcano erupted south-west of Iceland’s capital Reykjavik. Here is a link to the BBC news article which could be read with the children.

We had a brilliant day learning all about volcanoes around the world, where they are found and the different layers of a volcano. We followed this up by creating our own volcano which ‘erupted’ on the playground after lunch. Pictures to follow!

In Maths we concluded our work on Fractions for now. We have now moved on to learning about angles. More of this will be coming up next week.

In English this week we listened to a speech by Boudicca leading her army into battle with a Roman Army who was certain to win. We have been practising skills to inspire for the speech we will write and perform on dress up day.

Finally, in History we managed to capture a Roman Soldier this week after doing some great spying on a near by Roman camp. We found out lots about the Roman equipment and formations from Marcus before we let him go!

Have a great weekend.

How truly fantastic it was to see all of our lovely year 3 children back together in school once more! And we have been so impressed with the way they have come back to school, keen and ready to learn. May we take this opportunity to thank you all again for all of your support and hard work with the remote learning over the past half term.

The children have been learning lots of disgusting yet interesting facts about the toilet habits of the Roman – I have no doubt some of these will have been shared. We wrote a short paragraph for a virtual museum to teach others about toilet habits, gladiators blood, medicine and food.

The children started the Fraction unit this week. We have been very impressed with how the children approached solving the problems this week – some of which were very tricky.

For our first Science lesson we planted seeds. We are investigating what a seed needs to grow. Some of us are investigating if a plant needs compost, others are looking at whether light affects growth and others are interested to see how water affects seed growth. The children will be pleased to know that we watered the plants before we left school tonight including the ones in the cupboards!!

Dont forget to complete your home learning spelling task and the vocabulary task too. We look forward to seeing these next week.

Have a lovely weekend – let’s hope this storm passes quickly!!

Week 5 of home learning

Below is a reminder of expectations from the senior leadership team. Your best is good enough! We are blown away by how amazing you are all doing and you should be very proud of yourselves! 

Remote learning

Please remember if your child is in Key Stage 1 they should be aiming for 3 hours remote learning each day and if your child is in Key Stage 2 the expectation is around 4 hours. This time frame reflects the amount of time pupils spend learning in class each day and so it is important that your child does not go over this daily recommendation as given by the Department for Education.
There is no expectation that pupils must complete every task and activity set.
If your child is finding some of the work too challenging then they should access the support resources that your child’s teacher will have provided. Please do not worry if your child does not complete all of the activities for a given lesson; they can always come back to that same activity the following day. It is important that your child works at an appropriate pace for them on the tasks set, even if this means they do not get to the end of that lesson. Children will find the process and practice of learning at home very different, so taking a measured approach to the amount of time they spend on a task will be important for their well-being and happiness. Spending time really understanding and practising a new skill is just as important, and prioritising dedicated reading time each day (from a page not a screen) is a great way of reinforcing learning and reducing anxiety. A simple timetable for each day will also help save pupils from spending too long on one subject. When it gets to the end of your set time for a particular lesson, make sure your child stops (even if they have not finished all tasks) and has a break before moving on to the next subject. Please encourage your child to join the live teacher sessions each day where the class teacher will clearly explain the learning for that day and answer any individual questions your child may have, as well as providing pastoral contact.
