European Day of Languages – 25th Sept 2020

The children in Chestnut and Rowan had a fantastic day on Friday learning about all things Italian! They drew flags, learnt the numbers to 20, played Italian bingo, learned how to say hello and goodbye and to say the alphabet phonetically, played board games, completed a wordsearch and had a “cr-afternoon” making fans, Venetian masks and bridges out of spaghetti and marshmallows!

Term 1 – Maths ‘Key Instant Recall Facts’

This year in maths we will be focusing on Key Instant Recall Facts with a different focus each term.

Year 3’s term 1 focus is: ‘I know number bonds for all numbers to 20′.

To compliment the children’s learning at school, please could you help them at home as the key to these facts becoming embedded in the children’s memory is to practise little and often.

If you have any questions, please contact your class teacher via ClassDojo.

Many thanks

The Year 3 Team

Welcome to Year 3 – 2020/2021

We’d like to say a big ‘hello’ to all our new children and families joining us in Chestnut and Rowan this year. We really enjoyed welcoming the children back into school on Thursday and it was lovely to see all of them smiling and excited to be back after such a long time away.

Our PE day will be Thursday.  Please can you ensure your child has a full PE kit in school, clearly labelled so they can participate fully in our PE activities. Please could you also remove any jewellery (e.g. earrings, etc.) before the children come into school.

Please could you also ensure your child has a named water bottle in school each day to keep them hydrated and able to learn.

We look forward to getting to know you all over the next few weeks.  If you have any queries, please direct them to your class teacher via ClassDojo or phone/email the office.

As a reminder, the school day start and finish times are as follows for each class:

Rowan8.30am start, 3.00pm finish
Chestnut8.50am start, 3.20pm finish

Please adhere to these start and finish times to minimise the number of people on the school site at any one time and to allow social distancing to be observed.

Many thanks for your understanding

Rowan – Miss N Ryan and Ms V Cox

Final Learning Pack

Hello Year 3

Welcome to your last learning pack of the year. This time we have given you some fun activities to do, which will hopefully keep you busy into the holidays.

Despite the short time we spent together,  it has been a real privilege getting to know you all and we have thoroughly enjoyed our time as your teachers. We wish you continued success in Year Four.

We hope as many of you as possible make the last class catch ups this week as it would be great to see you all.

Until then, stay safe and take care

Hello Year 3

We hope this message finds you all continuing to be safe and well.

Sadly, it appears unlikely that we will all be getting back together again, before the summer break. Mr Houghton continues to teach the keyworker children and as of Monday, Mrs Hall will be teaching in Year 5. This will mean some adjustments on class dojo, however we are keen to maintain links with our own classes and would still like to see your work, so please continue to upload.

Please find enclosed your learning pack for this week.  We are continuing to use Oak Academy for our main learning, but there is also the BBC Bitesize  as well as the school workbooks, which I hope you have all managed to collect.

We will continue to keep you informed of any updates via dojo or this website.

Stay safe.

Home Learning 15th June

Hello Year 3

We hope you are all still safe and well and enjoying the glorious weather.

This week’s Home Learning pack is attached. Although we are continuing to use Oak Academy for our main learning, we have put together some other learning activities for you in the same style we used at the start of our home learning. We know some people have experienced issues accessing Oak Academy, or have limited internet access, so hopefully this will be useful for you. Mrs Hall is particularly keen to try out the Roman mosaic activity.

We will continue to set up zoom drop ins, to offer help and support with any aspect of the learning, as well as the class catch ups, which both Mr Houghton and Mrs Hall look forward to. Mrs Hall will continue to oversee both classes on dojo, answering messages, marking work and awarding dojo points, while Mr Houghton is teaching. Keep uploading your work as we love to see it.

Stay safe.
