Letter from Teachers 22.2.21


Dear Year 3,


We hope you’ve had a lovely half term and had a good break from home learning. We would love to see some pictures of what you have been up to during the break. School is still not the same without you and we miss you enormously. Fingers crossed we will all be returning to school soon!


It’s great to feel the weather warming up and seeing the first signs of spring. The evenings will be lighter soon and we will be able to enjoy being outside a little more. To celebrate, we will be including a ‘no screen day’ with this upload of work. We recognise that you must use screens to complete lots of your online learning, but it is also important that we have a break from them. We would like you to choose a day that best suits you and your family between February 22nd and March 5th to stay away from screens and do other fun learning instead. You can find a document with lots of ideas to fill your day instead of the usual academic activities here - .


We will also be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 4th March. This is another chance to have some fun and enjoy the amazing world of books and stories. Please check out the letter from Mrs Golby on Parent Pay, which explains more and do keep checking the World Book Day section of our class page to see what lovely activities we have uploaded.


We’ve included lots more fantastic activities to keep you busy over the next couple of weeks. Remember to read every day and record this in your reading record, do a maths activity and an English activity and then choose one other thing you enjoy. Please also make sure you regularly play on TT rock stars to keep your times table knowledge on point. Our new topic this half term is 'Fearsome Forces' which is all about Earthquakes, Volcanoes and the rocks that make up our wonderful world, so you will be finding out lots about these geographical wonders.


Keep up your hard work and please do stay in touch – we love so much to hear from you and see your wonderful work. Please stay safe and well and be kind to one another and yourselves.


All our Love


Mrs Golby, Mrs Cameron, Mrs Evans and the Year 3 Team.
