Hi Class 3, I hope that you have had a really lovely half term holiday - we have certainly had beautiful weather for it!
As Sunday 31st May was Pentecost Sunday, I am uploading some activities for you to try this week. This includes the Pentecost story - you could sequence, or write your own version. I have included some art/craft ideas around a Pentecost theme (flames/ fire /dove) There are some links to beautiful Pentecost songs from youtube that you could create a liturgical dance for. (Just like we have done many times in class so I know you are all great at this!) As the disciples were able to talk in different tongues (languages) following the Holy Spirit coming down upon them, perhaps you could try and learn some words from a different language e.g. colours, numbers, animals etc.
If we were in school, this week would have also been Health and Well-being week and so I have also included many ideas around the theme of staying fit and healthy, including balanced diets, exercise, personal hygiene, dental hygiene etc. Do not forget about your mental well-being and make sure you are doing things that you enjoy and make you happy.
I have uploaded many different ideas, have a go at the ones you would most enjoy. If you do not have access to print, then do not worry, look at some of the sheets and create your own version in your exercise book.
Please remember to keep sending us your photographs, as we love seeing you all safe and happy. I miss you all lots, stay safe and look after yourself and your families.

Hi Class 3,
I hope you have had a great weekend. Time for some new learning ideas for this coming week.
For maths I would like you to look at balancing calculations - the total of the calculation on one side of the equals sign needs to be the same as one the other. e.g. 9+1=11-1. I have added some sheets to give you the idea. Don't forget you can copy these into your exercise book if you do not have access to print these out.
For written tasks I have included a think and write resource which will show you an image an ask you to write for sentences, each of which will have a specific learning objective (such as include an expanded noun phrase, or include certain common exception words etc). For science, we continue to think about plants and I have included some practical activities that you can do at home.
Reading - continue to read books at home and access Reading Eggs and Epic if you can.
For ICT you can use ALEX and Kodable apps for coding and if you have it available perhaps you can use Word to copy in a passage from a book and play around with changing the font, size, colour. Remember to include capital letters and full stops and if you want to challenge yourself, try to import a picture from the internet. IMPORTANT - Remember all our internet safety rules - maybe an adult can supervise when you are searching for pictures.
For Art perhaps to link to our plant topic, you can draw, paint, collage some plants that you have in your house or that you see on your walks/ bike rides. I have also included a 30 day Art/DT challenge sheet.
Have a great week, take care and stay safe. I miss you all so much.

Hi Class 3, I hope you all enjoyed your VE day celebrations and the long bank holiday weekend. This week I would like to you to continue Armchair Explorers and keep looking at time by pointing out the time when it is o'clock, half past, quarter to, quarter past and to the nearest five minutes to your grown ups.
I would love you to explore money this week and below I have included a link to natwest who have some brilliant money sense activities and also some money word problems. For literacy work, please look at the Magic Tree task ideas. Please continue to explore plants and if you can grow your own or look after some plants (remember to send in your pictures).
Remember all the other learning that you can do as well - espresso, reading eggs, mathletics, timestables rockstars, numbots and epic too. Dylan, Elliot, Georgie, Hanna, James, Mason, Millie and Scarlett you are all rocking Epic at the minute - keep it up.
Love Ms Stewart x
This half term we would have been learning about telling the time.
We would be recapping on the hour and half past and moving on to quarter to/ past and finally telling the time to the nearest five minutes.
These resources will help, I recommend playing the recap slides first, then doing a bit of practice before moving on to the next (quarter to/past) slides and so on.
The internet is full of interactive time games that the children can play to consolidate their learning. ictgames and topmarks being just two sites available.
