Welcome to Rowan & Chestnut
This is a time when we are normally out and about enjoying the Easter holiday. As we are unable to do so this year, some activity packs have been put together for you to use. There is no expectation for you to complete these tasks, but feel free to send examples to your teacher, just like you have been doing over the past 2 weeks. We have included packs from both key stages so that you have a wide variety of different activities to choose from.
The packs cover a variety of subjects, including reading, writing and maths, but there is also a range of other subjects such as art, history and geography, alongside some challenge cards to keep your brains ticking over. You may pick and choose the activities you would like to do.
Remember to keep your daily journal going with your thoughts, feelings, what you have been doing, etc. You will be able to look back on this one day when people ask what it was like when the schools all closed.

As we head into our second week of home learning, Mr Houghton and Mrs Hall would like to say a huge thank you to you all for the fantastic work you shared last week. It has been wonderful to see what you have been doing with all your work and photos of your activities. Keep it up! We look forward to sharing with you again throughout the week.
Take care and stay safe.

It was really sad to see everyone leave on Friday and I know many of the children, like ourselves, were feeling quite upset. Fingers crossed, that it will only be for a short period of time and we can all come together again soon. Please find enclosed the work pack for this week. Some of the activities will take longer than a week to do, particularly the topic based ones. Maths and English will be uploaded weekly and should allow children to become confident in the calculation methods they have been focussing on. All written work should be completed in their home learning books. Any queries don’t hesitate to contact us.

Please note that our PE day has changed to Wednesdays. Please could we remind you that all children should be in full St Nicholas, named PE kits, with any jewellery removed (earrings).
Our topics are Dance and Tag Rugby. Dance will be indoors and require shorts, plimsolls and t-shirts. Tag Rugby will be outdoors, so children may wear black jogging bottoms and trainers.

I can’t believe it’s nearly Christmas and the end of term is almost upon us. We’ve had a busy time since the last half term beginning with;
Boogie bounce. Which was great fun, and exhausting!
Odd sock day to highlight how great it is to be different during Anti Bullying Week.
A fantastic day of sports at the Marsh Academy.
Estimating in maths.
and finally, learning how to present forward rolls in PE.
Unfortunately we still have quite a few children who either do not have the correct PE kit, or have no PE kit in school at all. It is really important that children are correctly prepared for all lessons.
The Year Three Team
Welcome back and we hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable half-term break.
This term in Chestnut and Rowan class we will be continuing with our Rainforest topic and linking this across other subjects. The term 2 map below gives you an overview of the skills and activities we will be covering across all areas of the curriculum.

Year 3 team – Mrs Hall, Mr Houghton, Mrs Ross and Miss Clifton
Chestnut and Rowan enjoyed a day of learning all things German – greeting each other, drawing flags, listening to German classical music from Bach and Beethoven to Strauss and Mendelssohn, learning how to count to twenty – eins, zwei, drei, vier, fünf,… achtzehn, neunzehn, zwanzig – and carrying out simple maths in German. They even played German bingo too!
Year 3 have been lucky enough to spend Wednesday afternoons with Boxing coaches, training them in the art of Boxing. They have had great fun playing fitness games and learning the Boxing stances and some Boxing moves – jab, power, hook, uppercut. They have even had the pleasure of training with current Youth Olympic Games gold medallist and Team GB hopeful, Karol Itauma (in red in the photos).
