Friday 12th June

Hello year 3, we have made it to the end of another week of home learning. You are all doing brilliantly and make sure that you take a moment today to say thank you to your parents for all of their hard work. Apologies for Thursday's English lesson. I was so pleased that I had managed to record a whole lesson that I somehow posted a link that only worked on my log in. I promise that I will get better!

It is Friday today and if we were in school that would mean that we would see Madame Elena. You will be very pleased to hear that you will get to see Madame Elena today for a French lesson. It is very exciting and all you have to do is click on the link below:

Good morning year 3.I hope that you are all well. We have almost come to the end of our English unit on story writing. Today and tomorrow we are going to work on writing our stories. There are some ideas on page 20 of the booklet to get you started and there is a must, should, could success criteria below - like the ones we use in class.

MUST - You must make sure that all of your capital letters and full stops are correct.

SHOULD - You should be using prepositional phrases like the ones that you have been practising.

COULD - You could include speech. Remember that the punctuation needs to go inside your speech marks.

Please send me copies of your stories when you have completed them and I will try and have a go at reading some of them out and posting them here. Remember, you have two days to write your stories.

In Maths we are going to continue learning about 2D shapes. Today we are going to be looking at drawing 2D shapes.

Hello year 3. I hope that you had a good weekend despite the weather! This week, all of the teachers are having a go at recording ourselves introducing some activities for you. These clips can be found at the links with screencast-o-matic included. My first attempt can be found below. As I'm sure you can tell, this isn't something that I would normally do but I'm hoping that with practise I will get better!
