Miss Limbert, Mr Mifflin, Miss Fleetwood and Mrs Green would like to say a huge hello to all of the children in Year Three.

Here is our web page which over this year will be a place to find information about and see examples of our learning.  

Home Learning

All Year 3 pupils have been sent home with a home learning pack. Within that pack there are a variety of activities for your child to complete at home. We will also continue to update and set work via our Twitter, the online learning page and on Purple Mash. Please note that we by no means expect all of this work to be completed but we want to ensure there are plenty of activities available should you need them.

 

Don’t forget there are many ways to get in touch with us! If you are having any issues with accessing work for your child/children or you just want to share your learning then please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

You can email the Year 3 team at sherriery3@gmail.com or you can email the school office.

You can send us a message through our Twitter account @SherrierY3

Or you can phone the school between 9am and 3pm and a message will be passed on to your child’s teacher.

We hope this helps and we can’t wait to welcome you all back!

The Year 3 Team

 

Useful Resources

All Year 3 pupils have been sent home with an activity pack. With so many different activities, it can be overwhelming to know where to start, so here is a handy guide on what to complete on a daily basis.

 

Maths: You can access daily lessons via White Rose Maths. This follows the scheme of learning which we use in school and has handy videos for you to follow. Pupils can also practice their times table fluency via Times Table Rock Stars.

 

Writing: Sometimes a picture or video can be all you need to inspire writing! There's some wonderful pictures to inspire writing on Pobble365 and Once Upon a picture. There's a wide range of videos available on the Literacy Shed. Please note, a piece of writing may take more than one day, particularly if writing at length.

 

Reading: Please encourage your child to keep reading on a daily basis. If you do not have books available at home then you could read online at Oxford Owl or take a listen to some audio books over at Amazon Audible. If your child reaches the end of a book, they can write a book review in their English book or on Purple Mash if they wish. There are also reading comprehension activities available on the Oak National Academy website.

Topic: The possibilities with topic work are endless! Our topic for the Summer term is 'Predators'. You will find a range of activities available on the 'Predators' bingo grid, plus a wide range of activities on the Oak National Academy website and on BBC Bitesize.

Active Learning: Let's keep moving! Where it is safe to do so, exercise outside and make the most of the sunshine. You can also access daily PE lessons with Joe Wicks and through PE with Jasmine (you should have been sent a log in through ParentPay). There's also yoga available via Cosmic Kids Yoga, silly songs and dances through GoNoodle and and Just Dance.

This term in Year Three:

This term the children will be writing a quest story and for non-fiction they will be writing a recount of a famous historical event linked to the Ancient Greeks.

 

We are now progressing through Book B and are currently looking at length before moving onto fractions.We encourage you to help your child to learn their times table facts as this will be invaluable to them throughout this unit.

 

In Connected Curriculum this term our topic is Gods and Mortals.

From nothingness came chaos, from chaos came air and water, from air and water came life! Then, rising majestically from the darkness, came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light.

Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets.

Meet Theseus, the hero, and Helen of Troy, the beautiful face that launched a thousand ships.

Explore the terrains of Greece, where in pure blue skies, the sun scorches waxen wings and melts the fortunes of Icarus and Daedalus.

Then decide your own fate, when a mysterious box is found and stirs your curious mind.

This term, PE days have changed in Year Three and will take place on two days per week. Both classes are having PE on a Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that children have kit in school each day of the week. If possible leave earrings at home on these days , if this is not possible they will need to be removed before or tape needs to be provided so that they can be covered,

Your child will need to hand their homework in every Monday and it will usually be issued on a Tuesday.

We endeavour to offer the children to change their book everyday, usually after lunch, however sometimes this is not possible but will be done as soon as possible.

Last Half Term in Y3

In Connected Curriculum last term our topic was Gods and Mortals.

From nothingness came chaos, from chaos came air and water, from air and water came life! Then, rising majestically from the darkness, came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light.

Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets.

Meet Theseus, the hero, and Helen of Troy, the beautiful face that launched a thousand ships.

Explore the terrains of Greece, where in pure blue skies, the sun scorches waxen wings and melts the fortunes of Icarus and Daedalus.

Then decide your own fate, when a mysterious box is found and stirs your curious mind.

 

PE KIT 

Could you please try to ensure that your child has a full indoor and outdoor PE kit in school all term.

Currently there are children each week who do not have any or the correct kit to allow them to fully enjoy their PE lesson.

As a brief reminder, indoor kit is black shorts, a plain white t-shirt and plimsolls whilst outdoor kit is a pair of track suit trousers, a suitable top to go over the indoor kit and a pair of trainers.

Many Thanks the Year Three Team 

This year Year Three will be working as ambassadors for the Christian Value "Thankfulness". Year Three were the first to promote their value through our Harvest assembly and Foodbank collection. We were impressed with how thoughtful, kind and generous the pupils were and how well they engaged with the world around them.
 
 
Thankfulness at Sherrier School 
In schools there are many opportunities to be generous with time and support, and many people who work in schools or support them give above and beyond the call of duty. 
It is always important to remember to say thank you—especially for those things or those people that get taken for granted!     
   Saying “please and thank you” a matter of manners and is a real sentiment in your school life? 
   Celebration and joyfulness built into the life of the school which is always clear on a Friday morning's Star of the Week
   Pupils are polite to all adults in school such as cooks and playtime supervisors who are part of school life
   Pupils encouraged to be thankful for more than just material possessions

Reading Focus:

This term our novel is 'Who Let The Gods Out' by Maz Evans. In the past this has proven a very popular text with the children as we embark on a modern day adventure accompanied by a collection of Ancient Greek gods.

Week Beginning 16/03/20

As we now approach the end of our amazing novel, 'Who Let The Gods Out' we will be using this week to look more at using inference and explanation.

Book Reviews 

A great way to share a book together at home is to complete a book review and discussing elements such as favourite or most disliked character, funniest, saddest part of the story and why?

Please find below copies of a book review sheet for fiction and one for non-fiction to print off and complete.
