Hi Y3

 

I hope that you and your family are all happy and well and are continuing to work on your daily lessons together.

 

Last week I was in school working with the 'Key Worker's children. As well as Maths and English, our main theme was about the different ways that we can and should look after ourselves such as eating healthy food, exercising, personal hygiene and crossing roads safely. We also did some work on the importance of being responsible.

I have added a picture of some of our work below. 

 

The daily lessons beginning this week are from BBC Bitesize as there are no more new daily lessons from Oak Academy Online.

 

If you prefer the Oak Academy lessons you can still access them using the link on the daily lessons page. You will now be free to choose a week, day or lesson that you have not completed as yet. There are lots and lots of lessons to choose from so have fun.

 

There is also a link to the Oak Academy Online 'Activity Clubs', which offers activities like fun cook-a-longs, arts and debating clubs. 

 

I have really enjoyed seeing the pictures and work that you have sent in so please continue to do so.

 

Please send any work that you complete or photos to the website below:

parentenquiry@marshgreen.bardaglea.org.uk

 

Take care and keep trying your very best with the daily lessons.

Hi 3TW,

I hope that you enjoyed the lovely sunny weather last week and had fun trying some of the 'National School Sports Week' activities. I worked in the Base Camp for the children of key workers last week and we tried activities such as timed 'Tennis keep ups' and 'Side to side bounces'. The activities were challenging but a lot of fun and we laughed a lot. We also had a focus on the topic of 'gratitude' which is all about being grateful for the people, things and opportunities that we have in our lives, no matter how small. Below is an image of some of the work that we completed.

 

At home last week, you saw the introduction of our slightly changed focus for your home learning, with the 'daily learning' though the online Oak National Academy Lessons. I hope that you found the lessons interesting, engaging and fun. Remember that you can re-do any lesson that you may have had difficulty with and you can also complete the Y2 Maths or English task if the Y3 task proves to be too challenging for you.

 

Next week's English lessons have a fun poetry focus and will support your reading comprehension, vocabulary and writing skills. The maths has a focus on the topic of 'time' so do make sure that you work carefully as this topic can be tricky.

 

Remember to also complete some work on our Summer topic about the 'Egyptians'.

 

Last week (Wednesday 24th June) also saw 'National Writing Day' which introduced lots of fun writing tasks. I have placed the link for this day on our class page for you to explore and try out activities.

Hello 3TW,

 

I hope that you have all had a great week learning new things in Maths, English and Science as well as working hard on our Summer topic related to the Egyptians. The ebook 'Was Tutankhamen killed?' has also been added to your Active Learn reading list. The expectation is that you will complete some research, written tasks and artwork related to this famous Egyptian 'Boy King'.

 

Have you had a look at the website related to empathy day? Last week when I was in school in the 'Base Camp Bubble' we did a lot of talk, reading, writing and creative activities with a focus on empathy. The children enjoyed making empathy glasses and positive thinking caps.

 

Below is a picture of some of the children's work on display in the Base Camp.

 

Next week (20.6.2020 - 26.6.2020) is 'National School Sport Week at Home 2020'.

This is an annual campaign to celebrate the power of sport. You can choose from a list of activities under a particular theme each day. An example of a theme is Aiming Sports, you could choose  an activity such as ... In the box – see how far away from a box you can get and still land your ball on target. Then challenge yourself to improve your personal best. 

 

Over the week you may want to challenge yourself to complete:
• An activity a day for the week
• As many activities as you can in one day

OR
• Activities with as many people as you can at the same time

 

It would be great if you could capture your achievements through photos and videos and send them in the usual way so that we can add them to our class page.

 

Please send any work to the website below:

parentenquiry@marshgreen.bardaglea.org.uk

 

The link for the 'National School Sport Week at Home 2020' can be found on our Y3 class page just above the 'Activities for Empathy Day link'.

 

Take care and have lots of fun.

Dear Y3TW

 

At school in October we always celebrate Black History Month and we discuss how we should treat each other in the manner in which we ourselves would like to be treated.

 

I am sure that you have seen the news about a man called George Floyd. In the USA who had been treated unfairly because of his race. Because of this, all around the world people have been protesting for there to be a change so that everyone can be treated equally.

 

You may have heard the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter’, this is an international activist group which originated in the black community. They are against violence and any racism towards black people.

 

Because of these events, you might like to research any amazing things that black people across the world have created or achieved. You might want to research a person in history such as Nelson Mandela or Mary Seacole. There are many famous black authors such as Malorie Blackman who you may like to create a poster about. You may wish to find out about the famous footballer Raheem Sterling who plays for Manchester City or you might choose to research Baroness Floella Benjamin who was a children’s television presenter.

 

There are many positive stories about the lives of black people that you might find interesting.

Be sure to look at the BBC Newsround to support any wider reading and facts about this topic:

 https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52813673

 

I look forward to seeing any writing, fact files, posters or artwork that you create as a result of your research. Please send any work to the website below:

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world"

Hi Yr3TW

 

I have been thinking of you all as I will be in school teaching the Key Worker's children this week and it will be strange not to be teaching any of you from 3TW.

 

The first of June was the official beginning of Summer and I hope that you are enjoying the brighter days and longer hours of daylight (although its been a little bit cooler lately). 

 

Please note that Tuesday the 9th of June is National Empathy Day. I have put the link to an amazing website on this class page. Please make sure that you listen to the stories being read and join in the fun activities. At this time of Lockdown, more than at any other time, it is important that we show empathy for one another. This week beginning the 8th June is also Carers Week when we should think of all those that care for us within our families. 

 

Please make sure that you are completing Maths tasks on the websites given as well as finding out about our Summer topic on Egyptians. 

 

I continue to look forward to hearing about what you have been doing as well as seeing images of your work on the usual website:

parentenquiry@marshgreen.bardaglea.org.uk 

 

Take care

Hi Y3TW,

 

I hope that you are all well and working hard at home.

 

This week is 'Mental Health Awareness Week'(18th May to 24th May) and the theme for this year is' Kindness'. Mrs Weekes has up-dated the Health, Happiness and Wellbeing page of our school website with many fun activities that you can complete.

 

I would love to see any activities that you try so please send them to the usual address parentenquiry@marshgreen.bardaglea.org.uk  and I will put them on our class page.

 

Take Care

Hi Year 3TW,

 

I hope you're all well and continuing to work hard at home. 

 

I'm sure by now you would have heard that Year 3 will at least have a month in school before the school year finishes. I was pleased to hear this as I am missing you all! 

 

Today I have added our new Summer Topic under the sunflower icon. There are three tasks for you to complete. Have fun, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

 

Remember to look under the other picture icons as I have added new lessons from Mr Mathis, Shakira and Marishka. There is also a new and exciting ebook, here is the blurb:

 

'Have you ever wondered which dinosaur had the most
teeth, or which planet is the biggest? Maybe you want
to know how tall the tallest building is, or where you
can find the largest crater on Earth?
Super Stats takes you around the world and beyond,
ranking the stats so that you know the facts.'

 

It is a very exciting and colourful read! 

 

Please remember to ask your parents to keep sending in photos or videos of you at work and at play so that I can add them to our Orange Paint Blob icon for what 3TW and 3MJ have been doing at home. This is a great place to share your achievements and to have a look a the achievements of your friends!

 

Enjoy the rest of the week.

 

I will write again soon.

Hi Year 3,

 

I hope that you are all well and continuing to enjoy your learning at home.

Be sure to attempt some Maths, English and some Learning Challenge work from either 'Oakwood National Academy Online Classroom' and / or the 'BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons' each day. Abacus Maths work has also been allocated to you.

 

I have placed a new ebook under the reading book icon called 'Parts of a plant'. Please read this as there are some beautiful images and fun facts to support your learning. 

 

Please look at Miss Hatton's Yoga Challenge (where you willfind some pictures of my attempts) and send pictures of your attempts too. I can't wait to see them and I will add them to our class page!

 

V E Day celebrations will be in full swing this Friday and so new information about V E Day has been posted under the United Kingdom Flag icon. There is a video, as well as examples of lots of activities that you can complete on the run up to Friday (8th May 2020). 

 

Under the Be creative paint pallet icon, I have added some exciting activities from the Tate Gallery and it includes a video with commentary by the author Jaqueline Wilson. It is called Jacqueline Wilson's Magical Tour around the museum. 

 

Please record your work in the exercise book that you were given. (If you have not collected your book, your parents can ring the school office so that you can collect it).

Don't forget that this is still learning time and not the summer holiday.

 

Please do not forget to send in any amazing photos and videos of you working at home to  parentenquiry@marshgreen.bardaglea.org.uk so that I can include you within the Orange Paint Blob icon 'What have 3TW and 3MJ been doing at home?'.

 

I look forward to hearing from you all and seeing lots of pictures!

Stay safe and best wishes

 

 

Hello 3TW,

Hope that you are all well, keeping safe and enjoying the sunshine when out for your daily walk or in your back gardens.

 

Today (22.4.20) is 'Earth Day' and you can research some facts about it on BBC Newsround. Write some facts or create some images about the importance of this day. It would be lovely if you could create some window artwork by using recycled materials or print and colour in the PDF sheet found below. This would be a great way to celebrate Earth day with your community. 

Share pictures of your completed work with us on: parentenquiry@marshgreen.bardaglea.org.uk 

 

Three new pdf books (Infographics Human Body, A Kid's Guide to Feeling Lonely, Why do I wash my hands?) have been placed under the reading icon for you to enjoy. Don't forget that there are also books allocated to you on your Active Learn site.

 

Please ensure that you complete an interesting English, Maths and a Learning Challenge task from either the 'Oakwood National Academy Online Classroom' and / or the 'BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons' each day. (Use the links provided to access the site easily).

Hi Year 3TW,

 

I hope you are all enjoying new learning experiences at home with your family. Remember to look after yourself and those around you by washing your hands frequently.

 

On the Home Learning section of our Y3 page you will find a range of fun learning opportunities. Try to choose different activities to complete each day but make sure that you exercise, read, write and complete a maths task every day. As we move towards Easter, remind yourselves of the Easter story through the activities on the Easter link below. Please use the exercise book and pencil that you were given in order to complete any written work. (If you did not take your book home from school, please ask your parents to collect it from the school office as soon as possible). 

 

During this time spent with your family, remember that a smile is a gift you can give for free. It will brighten your day and give joy to all those around you.

 

Miss you all
