Y3 Notice Board during school closure
SCHOOL IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS.
We will post school work on this Notice Board on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you need to contact us please use the following email addresses:
We have created a password protected Y3 page which allows us to post children's work and photos safely. You will receive a parentmail with the Y3 password. Please do not share this beyond our immediate Y3 community.
We hope that you and your families stay safe and well. Here is some advice from the Healthy Schools team: Staying Healthy - Information for Parent
We would just like to say a huge WELL DONE for all of the effort you have put into keeping up with your learning over the past two weeks! It has been a very strange time for us all and you have all coped brilliantly. We have thoroughly enjoyed receiving email updates and photos from you and we look forward to hearing from you again, after the two week break.
For now, please take this time to relax. Play, read, game and keep active over the next couple of weeks. If you really must do some work, then there is a creative writing competition you could enter (see details below) and an Easter egg times table colouring in you could download and print here. We have added some more links under the PE section to give you more ideas of how to be active at home too.
Take care and stay safe!
Miss Townsend and Mr McGriffiths
Feeling creative? Let your imagination run wild with this new creative writing competition. The theme is 'London' and can be only a maximum of 500 words.
Prizes include restaurant vouchers, local theatre tickets and more! Click on the image above to find out more details and how to enter. Good luck!
Please try to encourage children to be active at some point each day. Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) is leading live lessons all week at 9.00am. Even us teachers have been joining in! If you miss these, they will be available each day to stream after. Below is a document containing links to this and other activity websites and apps.
Welcome Year 3! We would love to see you comic strips and art from Wednesday! Send the pictures to the email address above and we will post them on the secure Year 3 page.
Please keep in touch on the email addresses above and enjoy the learning we have set below!
If for any reason you are unable to do these tasks, there is nothing to worry about. We hope they will be helpful! Tasks will disappear as new tasks are added (on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) so you could take a screenshot of any task you want to save for another time.
Friday 3rd April
In your writing books can you write up your comic strip conversation from Wednesday in direct speech. Make sure you include all the correct punctuation (speech sandwich!), synonyms for said, new speaker/new line and adverbs describing how it was said!
For an example of how to do this look here.
Have a read through of this sheet and learn about the art of tessellation. Your task (which is written in more detail at the bottom of the sheet), is to create your own tessellated pattern using 2D shapes.
Extra Easter challenge: Times tables Easter egg colouring.
This week, we would like you to continue to learn some of the year 3/4 common exception words.
Children are able to practice these spellings through fun games on Sumdog. When your child first logs in, ensure they click the spelling section instead of maths to be able to do this.
Extra Challenge: Can you put the words into sentences?
Try to read for at least 15 minutes each day.
Task: Can you choose a book you’ve read recently and write a book review?
We have had a few queries regarding the children's brass music practice. All of the music that the children are given to practise is web based and the resources can be found at www.hounslowmusic.org.uk/music. Once there, you need to click on 'rubber band'.
