Year 3

Week 2
We hope that you are all okay and that you are able to work through some of our schedule for the week.  Remember this is only a guide.  Each family may have different ways of approaching our suggested learning.  The priority is the well being of you and your family.  Home schooling will feel different in lots of ways.  Make sure that you try to work but also take a break and understand that parents are trying to help you.  Below you can find this week's timetable. We will try to check in and look at the work that you do on Seesaw.  This comes with our warmest wishes.

RE

Dear all. In these troubling times our faith becomes all the more important to us. On our 'Our Faith' page I have added many resources for RE that include prayers, Easter Stories, Learning resources and much more that you can share/do with your child. These resources are updated weekly. Please click on the link below, which will take you directly to Our Faith page.

A brilliant history video clip here plus other resources but do also look at Seesaw for art, reading, RE, history and geography resources this week.

Week 1

Each child has a SEESAW website log in inside their school bags.  The correct log in is highlighted green.  Please disregard the other one in homework wallets as we needed to change log ins.  Thank you.  Mrs Lonergan and Mrs Ichtsi

* Spellings:

Spelling Shed will have the spellings to be practising in your class set up each week.  You can test your child's spellings in sentences at the end of a week to see what they have remembered.  This is a good time to practise joined neat handwriting presentation while they learn the new spellings also.  Play as many games as possible online using their logins.

A Parent's Guide to Support Children at Home with APPs

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you so much for supporting the class during their mass this week when the theme was rocks.  The children thoroughly enjoyed performing 'Jesus is the Rock' and we hope that you enjoyed viewing their wonderful work in class afterwards.  If you couldn't join us, we shared your child's work with staff.  All were rewarded for their hard work and efforts.  Look out for the next homework letter, as we are making plans to do some landscape architecture for our next around the world day.  The country studied will be on Japan.  We will need enough shoe box lids for each child so please do try to send in any you may have. 

Kind regards,

Year Three Staff

In Science, we spent the last few weeks learning about the different types of rocks we see all around us, how these rocks are formed and what they may be used for. We also had great fun finding out what fossils are. We even had a go at making replica fossils ourselves!

Around the World Day- Japan

As part of our 'Around the World ' day, we looked at a traditional Japanese story and created our own version of the story, had a go at sketching cherry blossom trees (which are widely found in Japan during spring), solved a variety of sudoku puzzles and enjoyed making an origami bookmark.
