Friday 17th July-Our Last day in Year 3
 
You've made it. Congratulations!
 
What an interesting Year 3 journey it has been. Thank you for letting me come on this journey with you and your families. I have had a wonderful year at school and watching how you have tackled the work online. I have loved looking back over our class VLE pages and seeing everything that we have done-for
example, our Christmas singing, Liverpool class trip and wonderful class assembly. (We've been really lucky as a lot of other year groups didn't get to do their trip or assembly.)
 
I know that you are all ready for what exciting things Year 4 has in store for you in September. I have loved being a part of your Thingwall life and am really proud of how you have coped with your family through this unusual time.
 
Thank you for all your kind words, cards and presents. You are very kind.
 
Have a fabulous Summer with your friends and families. Stay safe, have fun, keep washing your hands, get lots of fresh air and above all else KEEP SMILING!
 
 
If we had been in school, today would have been Toy Day, tidying, partying and just enjoying being us in Year 3. Today can you-
 
Play with your toys
 
Help Mum, Dad or any other members of your family with some tidying up.
 
In school, we are having a party plate of food to eat in the afternoon. Perhaps you could have one too?

Marvellous    Monday    13.7.20
 
CONGRATULATIONS...you've made it to the final week of Year 3. What a funny, mixed up year it has been too! You should all be VERY proud of yourselves and the hard work that you have continued to do, at home and in school (Keyworker children), has been absolutely wonderful. I couldn't have asked for a better class and families to have worked with during this Lockdown. Our last week would have been a bit different in school. We would have had some lessons, some play and lots of tidying up so I'm going to put all these things into your work for this week. Today can you-
English- I've downloaded a Summer Activity Booklet for you. Have a look at Pages 2 and 3 today. They recap sentences and prepositions. 
 
Maths- I've downloaded a Summer Activity Booklet for you. Have a look at Pages 2 and 3 today. They recap multiplication and division and money addition.
 
Music- Have a lovely sing along to The People of Tomorrow from our amazing class visit to The Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
 
Jobs to help around the house to get ready for the Summer holidays- Ask someone in your family to give you a tidying job to do. It could be something to help in the garden, putting away the washing, a bit of hoovering or polishing or sorting your bedroom. It's their choice. Do it as well as you can to make them REALLY pleased.
 
Keep Smiling-Mrs Mitchell

English-Today can you have a look at Pages 12 and 13 in your Lockdown Creative Writing Unit.  It's all about contrast today.  The poem is called WISHES but really it's about wanting to do the things that we normally do. You can read and listen to Wishes on Page 12 to help you get some ideas. Then see how the poem is set out on page 13 to give you extra hints. Have a go. Neat writing too please.
 
I've set you some end of year spelling 2Dos too.

As always you can look on BBC Bitesize Daily to see if there is anything that you've missed or want to look at.  Check that you have finished all your 2Dos in Purple Mash. 
Have a wonderful weekend. Be kind and Keep Smiling! Mrs Mitchell.

English-This week it is The Stone Trolls. The link is above. You don't need to print out the link but you will need to write down your answers. There's some background information on Pages 3 and 4 and a story to read on Pages 5 and 6. Don't skim read these pages. Take your time to take in all the information and go back and re-read them to get any information. Can you complete What do the Words Mean? page today.
Maths- It's Week 7 so watch the video for Monday first and then answer the questions for today.
Science-In Purple Mash I have set a Science 2Do about the skeleton. PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION + BOOK FIRST AND MAKE NOTES BEFORE YOU DO THE PAGE.
Remember that if you want some more work to do you can always look on BBC Bitesize Daily for English, Maths and a Topic. Today it is Fractions, Commas and Romans.
Have a lovely Monday and I'll catch up with you tomorrow. 
Stay safe, get lots of fresh air, keep washing your hands and KEEP SMILING!

Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties we are unable to provide 'Snack Time' audio files at the moment. We are looking for a way to try to resolve this. 
 Fantastic Friday        5.6.20
 
Hurray...we've made it to Friday without getting eaten by a Nasty Troll!
I hope you enjoy your Friday's work-Amelia helped me plan it so you'll have to blame her!  Today can you-
English-In English you have two 2Dos in Purple Mash. One is a handwriting one so can you practice writing these words-because, favourite, improve, really, important and example.  Make sure you use the lines carefully.
Your second 2Do is a writing one. You need to open up My Simple Story write about something that is important to you or something you are looking forward to. Maybe use some of the writing ideas that you have had in your Troll work this week.
Maths-For Maths can you have a long go on TTRockstars today. See if you can get a lot faster at the times tables that you find harder,
Art- Check that it's ok with Mum and Dad to go onto this next website as it's on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkBODLrJkMw It's from the Arts for Kids Hub and it teaches you How to Draw a Troll. Rob is the Dad and he is teaching his son a step by step drawing. 
 
Have FABULOUS weekend with your family. I'll catch up with you again next week. Stay safe, get lots of fresh air and KEEP SMILING!

Tremendous Thursday  4.6.20
Hello Year 3 . I hope your gardens enjoyed the rain yesterday! It makes a change from all the lovely sun we have been having I suppose. Your Troll Music really cheered me up though. I really like that new Music App on Purple Mash.
Today can you-
English- Re-read The Truth about Trolls and have a look at Pages 13, 14 and 15 today.  Use all the ideas you have used this week to help you.
Maths- It's fractions of objects today. Watch and pause the Teaching Video first and then have a go at the worksheets. Make sure you are using the vocabulary numerator (the number on the top) and denominator (the number on the bottom)
Science-In Purple Mash I have set a 2Do about Food Groups for you to look at. Perhaps have a look at the food groups you are eating today too.
Enjoy your day. Stay safe, keep washing your hands, get some fresh air and keep smiling!  Mrs Mitchell
As usual you can visit BBC Bitesize for extra English, Maths and a topic.

Welcome to June 1.6.20
I hope you all had an amazing Half Term. The weather was so lovely that I'm sure you spent a lot of time out in the garden or out  in the fresh air. Today can you-
English-This week we will take all the text and work from the above link The Truth About Trolls. Please don't print out the worksheets as this will be a lot of ink. Instead write down your ideas from the worksheets into your diary or onto spare paper. The work will build up during this week so keep what you do each day. Today Read the story ideas on Pages 3, 4 and 5. Complete the What words mean sheet. Find the words again in the text to help you. Then complete Page 8 using commas to separate the adjectives to describe the Trolls.

Maths-Above is the Maths link for this week so each day you will need to open this link. Today it is tenths as decimals. 
The Wildlife trust-Today I'd like you to Design a Bird. There is a link above to help give you ideas.
 Have a super day. Stay safe, enjoy the fresh air, keep washing your hands and KEEP SMILING!

Peripatetic Music Lessons from September 2020
 
Your family received an email on 30.6.20 letting them know about the instrumental lessons that are available for you from September. Hopefully you have responded to the email by now and  followed the instructions in the email and contacted Edsential   so that it gives them time to organise a Taster session if you required it and also to timetable the lessons for next term.
If you have been learning the recorder, guitar or are  in the School Band with Mrs Mitchell then this will continue with her as normal.
