Dear Parents

You will know after the government announcement that sadly HFS is closed until after the February half term.  This means that all children should remain at home, with the exception of agreed vulnerable (we don’t have any pupils in Foundation who meet this criteria) and agreed Keyworker (both parents/single parent household) children who once it has been agreed with Mrs Kelliher can be onsite for times when their parent is at work. Any shift workers will need to provide rotas.

 

Please see class emails and our usual online learning platforms.

 

Mrs Kelliher has also put lots of information on the coronavirus page on the school website (go to the Key Information tab)

 

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Christmas video

Dear parents, we have uploaded our lovely Christmas video on Seesaw. We really enjoyed recording it and the children were absolutely amazing! Have a wonderful Christmas!

Christmas craft

Below, you will find photos of your children's Christmas craft. Thank you to all the parents who have already purchased their children's Christmas craft. If you haven't done so, you could still help FOHFS raise money for the school by sending in £1.50 next week with your child so that they take their craft home.

Week beginning 7th December - Homework Letter

Year Three Art:  This half term, we have been looking at portraits as an art form.  Year three have taken time to focus on drawing using symmetry and perspective and we are so pleased with the outcomes.  Children went on to create drawings and paintings of the landscape and urban towns as Lowry did.  This linked well with our local area fieldwork in geography and land use investigations.

...and they painted 'match stick men and match stick cats and dogs.... Year three's pieces dedicated to the northern artist, L Lowry.

As part of our 'Rocks and soil' unit, we learnt how fossils are formed and we made our own replicas!

Perfect pizzas

Still image for this video
As part of our D&T work, we designed, prepared, cooked and thoroughly enjoyed our delicious pizzas. We tasted a variety of different bases including pitta bread, naan, tortilla wrap, baguette, burger bun and white/brown bread as well as several toppings before deciding which ones to use for our own pizza. The result looked great and the children really enjoyed what they created!!

Remote Learning Autumn Term

Week Beginning 16th November - Homework Letter

Anti-bullying Week and Teamwork: We used the story, 'Stone Soup' to examine how the villagers could have reached out to the visitors and welcomed them. When they worked together, everyone was happier. They showed their support so everyone felt part of the wider group.

Anti-bullying Week: Supportive play and team work

Extra Homework: Finding out about our ancestors

Week beginning 16th November

This week we are reading instructions and learning to write instructions in a meaningful way. Please do try to have a look at some instructions at home - recipes are perfect.  The book 'Stone Soup' is a perfect way into this using a narrative tale.

Life in the late Stone Age

Internet Safety Task for weekend of 6th November

Tuesday 3rd November Homework Letter

Maths

 

The two sites below have some videos that you may find useful if you are unsure about the way that your child is taught how to add and subtract. We tend to follow these closely although occasionally we may adapt them if we find that it is necessary.

Homework Week Beginning 12th October

Internet safety


We have been looking at how children can stay safe online. We attempted to play some fun games to reinforce what we discussed but, due to technical difficulties, only a few children managed to get on the website. If they would like to do it at home, they can access the page by clicking on the link below.

 

Please send in a named dark cardigan, sweatshirt or fleece so that your child can wear this in class time as classes are not as warm as would normally be the case.  Please post any homework to Seesaw so that we can mark and comment on it there.  We look forward to speaking on the telephone for our October parent/teacher meeting.  

Best wishes,

Mrs Lonergan and Mrs Ichtsi

Reading - Thank you for reading with your child at home.  Please continue to note which page you reached in their reading record book and a little message about how they got on.  We read every day in class so the books need to come back daily with the reading record book.  Many thanks.  Mrs Lonergan and Mrs Ichtsi

 

Our topic plan has already been sent to you but a copy will also appear here so that you know what we will be studying in class.

 

PE is each Tuesday.  If your child finds it hard to remove earrings or watches, please send them to school without these items on Tuesday.  Thank you for ensuring that your child has their kit.  We are doing PE outside presently.

 

Everyone is working really well and many children have exciting ideas about our class book, Traction Man, as they plan to write their own version of the story which is just wonderful.

 

Year Three Teachers

Welcome to Year 3

We had a great week and we have really enjoyed getting to know your children!  They have all settled well despite of all the changes to our usual school routines. 

 

In the unfortunate event of any of the children having to self-isolate for any length of time, we have included below a grid with various activities that they could be completing while they have to stay at home. Maths plans will be emailed separately to you once we know that your child has to self-isolate.
