Notices & Reminders
The spellings for this week can now be found on the homework page. They are titled Spelling Su1W4
Welcome back to you all.
I hope you have had great Easter break. The medium term plan and spellings for this week are now uploaded to the homework page.
Our topic this half term is about Europe and America. We will be looking at various countries in Europe and thinking about climates. We will look at the continent of America and our focus will be on the Mississippi River!
Do look at the homework tasks for this half term. Please note that these are not compulsory, but there are lots of different activities which should be good fun!
I am looking forward to seeing everyone back in class tomorrow.

THE EASTER HOLIDAYS
Dear Parents and Carers,
I just wanted to thank you for your support this term and to say a big well done to your children who have really stepped up and worked very hard.
If you are looking to do a little work with your child over the Easter holidays, then I would recommend that they do some TT Rockstars, if they find times tables tricky. I have set the tables so that your child can practise the ones they need to know. Next term we will be learning the eight times table.
I spoke to a number of parents about encouraging your child to do some writing at home. I have found a book, that I think might be great way to keep your child motivated and enjoying their writing. It is called Creative Writing Skills by Lexi Smith and it costs £7.99 from Amazon. I am very aware that the cost of living is on the rise, so if you would like to have some alternative writing activities for free then please let me know. (Sadly, I won't be able to match the book!) I will send home some KS1 spelling sheets for your child to practise.
Please encourage your child to read, even if it is the back of the cereal packet or a recipe, or sat nav instructions!
I wish you a wonderful Easter break,
All the best,
Year 3 have proved themselves to be the most wonderful artists! Here is a link to the National Gallery, which might be of interest as it has a number of paintings by Monet, whose oil pastel pictures we have been looking at. https://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/
Entry is free! We will be inviting you in at the end of term to have a look at their work!
Because we had such a busy week, the spellings will remain the same as we did not have time to work on them!
Two weeks ago, we won the TT Rockstars cup, and it would be great if we could do it again! Please encourage your child to go on TT Rockstars for 5 to 10 minutes each day.
Spellings are now in the homework section
I have put up the spellings for this week and next week. We will be working on them in class. The last slide has the spellings that we need to work on. The other slides are just a recap of work we have done before. The PP is named Spellings Sp2W1.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT TEST THE CHILDREN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO WORK WITH THEM ON THE SPELLINGS THEN THAT WOULD BE GREAT!
Trip To Harlow Museum
Tuesday 1st March
We are going to visit Harlow Museum to learn loads about the Romans in Harlow! We will be leaving at 9 .00 and will return by 12.00 - 12.30 depending on the weather. There is no charge for this as we will be walking there and the museum is free. We would be grateful if you could provide your child with a packed lunch in a plastic bag that can be disposed of. If the weather is good we will have a picnic in the gardens, and if it is raining then we will have a picnic in the classroom!
We need a parent volunteer to come with us. Would anyone be available?
All the best,
I have reset the times tables! Have a go and let's see if we can beat Year 4. Do put up a screenshot of your scores on sound check or garage mode onto Seesaw! I am going to have a go now! Check in with your friends and see how they are getting on!
Please remember that we expect you to read with your child at least 5 times a week. Do remember that you can listen to your child while you are cooking etc. There are some questions that you might like to ask, to make sure that your child has got a deep understanding of the text. Please look on the homework page.
Please could you make sure your child spends up to 10 minutes on TT Rockstars at least 3 times a week. This will make such a difference to their maths learning!
For the next week we will be looking at addition. If your child has done their 10 minutes of TT Rockstars, then they might like to access some other games to help improve their mental maths. Here is the link to some fun online games:
The spellings that we will be looking at are now on the homework page. It will be Sp1W4. Some slides will be updated as the week goes by, but it will give you an idea of what we are doing.
Here is the Rounding game that we played today. Your child might like to have a go!
This term we will be concentrating on the 4 times table. I have uploaded some games for your children to play online and some activities that can be printed or just copied onto paper.
https://www.timestables.co.uk This is a great website with lots of fun games for your child to play. This will help them with their TT Rockstars practise.
http://www.timestables.me.uk/printable-pdf-quiz-generator.htmIf your child wishes to practise their times tables, then this website is great. You can get it to generate up to 99 questions for any combination of times tables. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU INCLUDE THE INVERSE OR DIVISIONS AS WELL.
Welcome back! I hope you had a lovely Christmas break! I would like to say a huge thank you from myself and Mrs Ensinger for all for such lovely Christmas gifts and cards. They were much appreciated.
Details of what we are doing this half term can now be found on the curriculum part of the website. Our main topic will be the Romans in Britain.
Homework tasks will be uploaded shortly.
