This week some of you started looking at The Ickabog - J.K Rowling's new online book. To make a start, activities were set about Chapter One, using a variety of VIPERS skills.
Some of you also got creative by researching Stone Age paintings and art before making your own! They looked fantastic.
Hello everybody hope you are all safe and well!
Now that I can post updates again, here are some pictures of what you have all been up to over the last couple of weeks. I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at all of your work and have had some great examples sent in recently. It looks like you and your parents are enjoying Wacky Wednesday's and have been doing lots to help around the home.
There have been examples of:
- Outdoor walks & finding painted stones
- Garden picnics
- Garden races
- Magic Boxes
- Maths work
- Dinosaur islands
- Amazing poems
- Eurovision flag identifying
- Cave painting
And much more! Well done 3L!!
As always if you have any examples of what you have been up to over the last few weeks and have/have not yet featured on the website but would love to, please send them to the year 3 email address. Likewise, if you have any questions or would like help with anything please get in touch.
Stay safe everyone!
We have had some lovely emails showing the great work you have been doing. This week we started looking at The Stone Age, starting with The Stonehenge. Take a look at some children's comprehension work and imaginative models they have made!
Alongside this, lots of English work about Pandora's Box has continued, as well as fractions work in Maths. It also looks like some of you have been really enjoying Wacky Wednesday activities! Lots of skills that will definitely come in handy to learn - keep it up!
It has came to my attention that some website updates have not been successful and I can only apologise for this. Hopefully the issue is rectified and I continue to update without issues.
It was a great week for work this week leading up to the VE Day celebrations. I received some lovely contributions.
Emily took part in a lovely bike ride with her dog. Made a cloud in a jar and also created an alternative rainbow. Great job Emily!
Evie's alternative rainbow was given some thought and was created to show our class name 3L. Such a lovely thought and creative idea. She also spent time learning to tell the time. She used her own resources to make a clock and clearly spent a lot of time on this. She then used it to help her complete her work on time. Excellent work Evie!
Quinn spent some time researching the colours of the rainbow and how they are made. He then used this to create a Lego alternative rainbow. Great idea. He also created a front page for a book 'The School for Super Villains'. Well done Quinn.
Willow sent in lots of examples of activities she had completed from the suggested timetable. She had a very busy week, creating alternative rainbows, continuing her work into local heroes and drawing her favourite characters from books. Well done Willow, keep up the hard work.
James spent some time on the hunt for Mr Storey's stone. It had moved but he managed to find it and put it in a new location. He also completed the maths work on budgets for army supplies and managed to speak to his grandparents who shared with him their memories of VE Day at the end of WW2. They were 7 and 5 when the war finished. They could just about remember the parties and celebrations. They could also remember the rationing and his nana lived in North Shields so could remember the bomb shelter and that she could take her dolls in there. She could also remember the sirens which were scary.
How amazing that we still have relatives to share their experiences!
We hoped you enjoyed the Eurovision themed topic activities this week. We had some fantastic photographs sent in of you completing some interesting research looking at different countries. We also hope you found the White Rose maths resources and videos helpful. There was some tricky work completed about fractions - well done!
It was also fantastic to see some of you start the activities from our Wacky Wednesday activity sheet; using tools, changing bedding and washing clothes!
What a busy, exciting week you've all had completing V.E day writing; including diary entries, key. vocabulary and reading comprehension. As well as this some of you made homemade bunting, flags and posters to celebrate the day at home with families.
We also had some military maths money work completed this week; including adding up how much a soldier's belongings would cost.
Thank you again for all your fantastic home support and for sending in the hard work your children have completed.
This week in 3A we had a focus on improving our average speed on TT Rockstars. The quickest average speed this week was 2.18 seconds! Well done to everyone who showed great emerald and diamond power logging on and doing their hardest to improve their times table speed! We had 17 children complete their activities this week!
We have had some lovely examples of work this week.
Don't forget that we would love to see photos from your garden party on Friday for VE Day and some examples of your ration baking with an ingredients list and method. We are hoping to create an eBook of these to share with others.
This week Emily has been busy creating a cloud in a jar and making the most of the fantastic weather by going on a bike ride!
Evie has created a clock and made her very own to help tell the time. She has also made a lovely alternative rainbow and used our class name as inspiration. A lovely thought Evie!
Quinn has designed the front cover of a book from Fiction Express. He has also been learning some more about time and rainbows and created work around both.
Willow has been super busy this week! She has completed lots of the activities on the suggested timetable. She has been thinking about the clap for carers and rainbows, draw a character from a book and designed her own animal too!
James went on the hunt for Mr Storey's stone and moved it to a new place.
He is also loving learning about VE day and has cracked the morse code and worked out the cost of items for the platoon. James has also been in touch with his grandparents who were 7 and 5 when the war finished. They could just about remember the parties and celebrations. They could also remember the rationing and his nana lived in North Shields so could remember the bomb shelter and that she could take her dolls in there. She could also remember the sirens which were scary.
It is wonderful that we still have people to get first hand experiences from about WW2.
James is super excited for his garden party on Friday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the end of WW2.
What a great response we have had this week to the activities set on the website. Thank you again for your home learning support and emailing photographs to us. Here are some of the lovely tasks you've completed; starting with creative and outdoor tasks, along with alternative rainbow projects.
This week we also continued local heroes writing and maths time work. Some practical and creative approaches!

A busy week for some of our 3L members this week. It is lovely to see you interacting with the activities set and to also see what other things you have been getting up to. Great work. Thank you to all of those who participated in the TT Rockstars Battle of the Bands competition. Unfortunately we didn't win this time but those who participated obviously gave it their all. Well done to Saphira, Finley and James; our top 3.
Ava has been busy planting seeds and watching them start to grow and decorating easter eggs as the aliens from Toy Story. She has also been learning some home economics and learning how to use the washing machine. She washed all of her favourite teddies and let them dry in the lovely sunshine we have been having. She has even found time to read and has started the Beatrix Potter collection. You go girl!
James has been learning to tell the time and made his own analogue clock. He has also been using BBC Bitesize to learn about food chains and has created an alternative rainbow, explaining how they are made.
Quinn has made a cloud in a bottle and learnt about the water cycle, drawing a picture to explain how water evaporates. He researched into the NHS and decided that they would be his local hero for his english project and has been working super hard on converting digital and analogue times. A very busy week for Quinn!
Izak has also continued his work into local heroes and this week decided to think about carers and what they do to help the community. He also created an alternative rainbow picture, using lovely adjectives to describe what they symbolise.
Saphira has been working on some spelling and grammar activities in her workbook. She has also carried out some maths activities working on addition problem solving questions. She has also beautifully coloured in an alternative rainbow from the police, showing a rainbow and a police car. She also worked incredibly hard to win our TT Rockstars Battle of the Bands competition.
Willow joined in the with 8pm NHS workers clap and then wrote about what she could see and hear. She also thought about why people do this every week and wrote some lovely statements about how it keeps up morale in the community.
