Following school closures, we have decided to make the children’s learning experience streamlined and as simplistic as possible. Therefore we will ensure that we upload content ready for Monday mornings. The Government advice is that primary schools should have approximately three hours of work per day. With this in mind, St Mary’s will concentrate on at least three areas of study per day which will vary from year group to year group and may change each week.
The work will begin from tomorrow.
To supplement your child’s learning, we will be offering CGP books at a significantly discounted price which the office will need to know by Friday the 8th January. These books have been handpicked by the teachers in order to best support the needs of the children. These are available via the school office.
Books for Year 3
KS2 English Comprehension Y3 (code E3CW21) - £1.85
KS2 Discover and learn: History - Romans in Britain activity book (code HRB22) - £3.50
In class, we will be reading the book 'Escape from Pompeii' by Christina Balit. If you would like to purchase this to read with your child at home then Amazon now sell the book online for a reasonable price.
Should you have any further questions or concerns, please contact your class teacher through their regular Gmail address (email@example.com).
Good morning Year 3!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend, and made the most of the snow! It was lovely to see the lovely pictures I've received of you all playing in the snow and building lots of snowmen!
This week's learning will follow on from last week as in Maths we continue to look at length and perimeter, and later on in the week, will be introduced to some multiplication and division. In English, you will be carrying on your narrative description piece based on the 'BFG'. In Topic, you will spend a few more lessons learning about the Romans, how they invaded Britain, and their thoughts and beliefs. This week, you will also be introduced to this term's Science topic, Magnets! Please make sure any work completed is either sent, or a picture is taken and sent to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As of this week, we will hold a daily Teams meeting at 9:30am. I have already set one up for tomorrow, so parents should have received an invitation to this. This is so we can take a register, see how you are all doing and so I can see your lovely faces, and to go over the learning for the day. Below are this week's spellings. On Friday's Teams meeting, I will be doing a spelling test based on these spellings, so make sure you learn them!
Keep up the hard work, I am missing you all!
Happy home learning
Good morning Year 3!
Please remember that there will be a teams meeting on Monday morning (11th January) at 9:30. I have sent parents an invite, and the office have sent out instructions on how to use Teams (I too, will be Reading this!)
This week we will continue our sequence of learning following last week. In English, you will be continuing to anaylse the opening scene of the BFG and gathering key vocabulary in order to begin writing your opening. Please send me these via my email. I can't wait to read them! Maths will continue to focus on measuring the length of an object, and starting to compare units of measurement. In topic, you will be continuing to learn all about the Romans, and how they conquered Britain. I have added some additional BBC Bitesize links on Tuesday and Wednesday for you to also have a look at. On Friday, it's time to get creative! Use the template I have attached below to draw and design your very own Roman shield! If you're feeling super creative, and your grown ups have some spare cardboard lying around, click on the Youtube link given on the timetable and have a go at making one! Please send me a picture of your designs via email, I would love to see your amazing work! Below, I have also added some handwriting practise following our school's handwriting policy for you to keep working on.
I have also added this weeks spellings, which I will add every Sunday from now on. Perhaps every Monday you could have a spelling test of your own at home! Let me know how you get on
You are all doing such an amazing job, and I'm proud of you all!
