Hi Year 3

I hope everyone is safe and well.  If we were at school, the Easter holidays would have started and we would all be busy outdoors enjoying the sunshine. However, this is going to be a very unusual Easter break but we can still relax and enjoy it.

Try not to worry about school home learning over the next 2 weeks unless of course you want to continue with it.  I’m certainly giving myself a break and am going to try a few different things at home.

Thank you Chris – he has been trying out some ideas from https://themumeducates.com/  which has lots of free resources.  Give it a go.  If any of you have any ideas, we’d love for you to share them too.

Have a look at the Easter competition – we’d love to see some amazing Easter bonnets and eggs.  Check the newsletter again for the information and other ideas to do at home.

There are plenty of fun things to do while you’re at home such as ~

  • Art/lego challenges
  • Create a scene in a box from a favourite story
  • Make up your own dance routine or your own poem
  • Make a newspaper report about your family, including interviews
  • Be a weather reporter for the day
  • Create your own fashion show
  • Create an indoor treasure hunt with a map
  • Have a listen to ‘Supertato’ on YouTube and create your own super hero vegetable.
  • Create your own superveg story.

Whatever you are up to let me know through the email address and you’ll get a mention on the Year 3 page.  That way we can all see what we are doing over the break.  I’m going to listen to a YouTube reading of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ now.  It’s one of my favourite stories.

Please remember you can keep in touch by the Year 3 email – just to say hello,   ask me about home learning, tell me what you’re doing or anything else you can think of.

Take care

Mrs Lewis

Hello Year 3 – it’s me again.

Missing being with you all so thought we could remind ourselves of one of our favourite poems.  It makes me think of you all giggling at it.  Let me know if you have a favourite – maybe you could share it on the Y3 email that’s on the web site or if you would like me to read you something else, just let me know.

Hope you all manage to enjoy Easter, although it will be quite different this year.  Sunny days are coming so if you’re out in the garden planting, growing, weeding etc, let us know.  School is really keen to know what projects you’re up to.

Take care all,

Mrs Lewis
