Hello and welcome back Year 3,

I hope enjoyed your holidays! Maybe you got some extra sunshine or maybe completed some fantastic Science or Art activities. Whatever you did I hope you are ready to get back to the fantastic online learning you have been doing.

On Showbie you will find this week’s work uploaded and ready for you. 

Remember these are the activities I upload weekly for you to complete: 

– 5 Writing/Grammar Activities

– 5 Maths Activities

– 2 Reading Comprehension

There is also a home learning grid, History assignments and fun Science experiments for you to complete at your leisure.

I have been so happy to see students logging in to Showbie and accessing the weekly work I have been setting. I have enjoyed marking your work and giving you feedback on these tasks. If you have not accessed Showbie yet please follow the steps below to set up your account and get started.

It is very important we try to keep studying and learning during this time. I will continue to keep marking all the work that is sent to me via Showbie. 

Please follow these steps to link to Showbie:

Please remember to keep reading every day and to practice your times tables. I think it would be a really good idea if you started to keep a diary too – we are going through a very interesting time and in the future people would learn lots about history by reading about your lives! You could draw pictures and write sentences about what you do each day and keep them together to make a book!

I miss all of you very much and am looking forward to when I get to see you all again!

Take care and be kind,

Miss Bunting

We are currently looking in to new ways to give you the best online learning possible so stay tuned for updates! In the meantime, please use these useful links:

Super Sentence Stackers

May I just say that I strongly recommend the Sentence Stacking videos with Jane Considine. She clearly breaks down how to structure a sentence and models the writing the same way I would with the class in person. I truly believe these videos will support your child’s writing during this time. Everyday she introduces a new video to engage the children. She even takes the writing sent in on her channel and creates a nationwide story! Please check it out! I have attached the video which explains how it works. The rest of the videos are on her Youtube channel which are released daily and easy to find.

PE With Joe Wicks

I have been completing a daily work out and I hope you all have been keeping active as well! PE with Joe Wicks is a fun way to wake up in the morning and keep fit! The whole family can join in! He premieres a new workout daily at 9am. I have attached the link below.
