Keep working hard during these challenging times.

I do hope you are all safe and well and enjoying this lovely weather.
If you are able to safely get outside perhaps your parents would download the Seek app for you and you can then identify some flora and fauna and let me know what you have discovered. It's free to download and use. I know how much you have all enjoyed learning about nature these last few weeks. Perhaps you could try sketching a picture of what you discover
I have been keeping an eye on how many of you are completing work that I have set for you. I am pleased to report that some children have been busy working hard - visit the Hall of Fame to see if your name is there!
School Closure Update
All children have been sent home with work for them to complete. They have passwords for all of the apps and educational sites that we use in school and will be set work and challenges for them to complete for however long we are away from school.
On the 3GP Curriculum page is a suggested timetable for each day to ensure that children are encouraged to access daily learning and establish good routines in these challenging times.
Please make contact with Miss Patrick if you require any support or have any questions. Some children have done this already. It's always good to hear from my class and know how you are getting on. Stay safe, keep in touch and hopefully we will all be back together soon.
PE is on Wednesday and Friday afternoons, so please remember PE kit. PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts/trousers and trainers. No patterned tops should be worn. Earrings must be removed on these days.
Children should come into school wearing their normal school uniform and will change in school before PE.
We expect children in Year 3 to take part in daily reading at home with an adult. It would be really helpful if the adult who hears the child read would write a comment in their Reading Record book. Ideally reading should become part of your child's daily routine.
Every child has a login for Read Theory and Spelling Shed. These programmes will really enhance your child's learning if they spend time using them two or three times a week.
Read Theory is an app that adjusts itself to the correct level to aid your child in their reading and critical evaluation and knowledge retrieval from texts. Spelling Shed will test them and help them learn key spellings for our topic or the words they are expected to know by the end of year 3.
Every child has a Times Tables Rockstars, Sumdog and Prodigy log in to aid them in their maths journey. These sites have a wide variety of fun games that will boost their skills and track their progress. You child should aim to access these sites for 10-15 minutes several times a week.
Don't forget, snack money is £1 a week and this covers a variety of snacks for everyone.
