UPDATE: Friday 3rd April 2020
Firstly, we would like to thank everyone for all your support this term, it has been a rather interesting end of term! We are very proud of the Year 3 children and how hard they have worked this term. We especially loved their Assembly and I am sure you will agree that it was fantastic. The children have also had a really productive term with their learning and we know many of them particularly enjoyed the ‘Reptile Workshop’.
In the last couple of weeks, we have loved seeing the children’s work on j2e, please do make sure that children upload their work. We are expecting all children to upload one piece of English and one piece of maths each week during term time. We are giving out j2e stars for children who have been working particularly hard!
Now that it is the Easter holidays, we do not expect the children to be doing school work, however we do have some suggestions for activities to keep them entertained.
They can use the table below to tick off those activities completed. However, please do not let this table dominate the holidays!
Best wishes for a healthy and happy Easter.
Mrs Tranter and Mr Kent

UPDATE 29th MARCH 2020
Dear Year 3 Parents and Carers,
We hope that your child’s first week of Home Learning has been a positive experience and that they have managed to continue learning- we have missed having the children in class. Please do make sure that any presentations are uploaded on J2E which we will mark. Also, please do ensure that children are using Times Table Rock Stars, we are monitoring their use and ask them to challenge us!
During the week commencing 30th March, we would like the children to continue with the SPaG, English, Maths, science, art and PE tasks detailed in their timetable and the home learning activity logs.
As an additional online tool to help with PE while staying at home, the school has also been granted use of the 5-a-day dance website:
For this week we would also like your child to do the following:
- PSHE, a fun activity might be to draw a few small Easter themed pictures that your child can then use to create an Easter treasure hunt in the house/garden. They could hide these themselves for someone else to find or ask a family member to hide the images for them to find.
- If your child would like to make an Easter Bonnet please do update a picture to J2E as we would love to see it.
Every child now has a folder on J2E, where they are able to save any completed work or photos/files they wish to upload. Please do support your child's learning by encouraging them to upload photos or files. Saved on the Year 3 Home Learning page are instructions that explain how to use MyUSO and complete or upload work on J2E.
If you or your child have any queries about the tasks or any other element of this letter, please do not hesitate to contact your teacher via J2e (upload your query and we will aim to help in any way we can).
Thank you again for all your support during these uncertain times and we wish you all a restful and peaceful Easter break.
