This month is the Month of May where we celebrate Mary our Mother.

At school we would have celebrated our May Procession on 1st May.

Please read through the powerpoint below about how you can remember Mary during May.

 

Also attached is a stained glass window for you to colour in,

if you don't have an image of Mary at home

and would like to set up your own Prayer corner dedicated to Mary.

 

The month of May where we celebrate Mary our Mother


Print and colour of stained glass window of Mary or make your own

Maths

 

So as I mentioned last week, if we were in school, we would be learning about money.

 

Please read through the powerpoint below and then work through the worksheets. Start with the first sheet and progress through to the 3rd sheet.

 

If you haven't got the coins, find something that could represent each coin. For example green lego is 1p, yellow is 2p, red is 5p and so on or make some counters and write the value of each on the counter, again as we do in school using our counters.

 

I have put the answer sheets on for you too so when you have finished you can mark your answers or just check them.

 

If you can't or don't want to print off the sheets,

talk each question through with an adult.

 

When you have finished, could you set up a little shop to play with mum and dad or your brothers and sisters? Label the cost of each item, let them have some money and you have to work out the change.

 

Or set up a cafe, give them a choice of different sandwiches for lunch, each sandwich filling and item on your menu has a different value, can you make the drinks, sandwiches and maybe any cakes and then serve them. How much can you earn in tips from mum and dad? 

 

Enjoy! x

 

 

History

 

This Friday, 8th May will be the celebration of V E Day - Victory in Europe Day.

How will you and your family celebrate?

 

Bake cakes for afternoon tea in the garden (weather permitting)

Wear red, white and blue

Can you make bunting to decorate the house or garden?

 

Send me photos next week of your celebrations to share with your friends.

 

There are some ideas below to help you celebrate and learn more about V E Day.

Music

 

Here is a link for some lovely music lesson ideas from Mrs Cliffe,

she sends everyone her love and hopes you are all well.

https://www.ourlady-st-werburghs.staffs.sch.uk/classes/music-school-closure

 

 

See what your friends have been up to.

 

What a lot of lovely things you are all doing!

 

I will load on any new photos now each Monday and Thursday. 

 

Monday 27th April 2020 Week 6 of school closure

Dear All,

I hope this finds you safe and well.

Please see the updates from the Diocesan Education Service:

 

May begins this Friday (although you can’t tell from the weather today) and as a Church we focus upon our relationship with Our Blessed Mother Mary.

Please do share any resources, prayers, hymns, artwork etc. School are looking forward to seeing some beautiful May Altars and virtual processions.

 

'Over the next few afternoons Mrs Phelps could hardly take her eyes from the small girl sitting for hour after hour in the big armchair at the far end of the room with a book on her lap.' 

Extract taken from Roald Dahl's: Matilda

 

Here is a timetable for you to design to suit you and your family.

You don't need to print it off, you can design your own on a sheet of paper if you prefer.

Each day you should be aiming to do a maths and English activity

and then depending on what you like doing or based around your interests, fill in another activity for each day.

 

In the final activity box or one of them (you decide which one with mum and dad), could you lay the table for dinner, wash the lunch dishes, do some weeding or hoover up?

Make at least one activity, each day, something that helps around the house. 

 

Remember, we are Team Year 3 in school but at home you are your own team as a family x

READING COMPREHENSION

 

Please keep up all your super reading. There are books allocated to you on Active Learn, any books you have at home and there are also eBooks, follow the link below.

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk

 

This is a wonderful website for you to access free reading material for children aged 3 to 11 years; and the really great thing is that many of their books have quizzes available on Accelerated Reader.

Published by Oxford University Press, these ebooks will really help if you'd like to read books from structured reading schemes/programmes

 

New

I am putting all work up on our class webpage as a guide only.

Please don't feel you need to print everything off.

Children are used to writing out their question and answers in their maths books, in school.

They can read the question, write down a number sentence to show what operation they need to do and complete it with an answer.

They are also able to have a working out area or can show you their working out within the question itself.

If your child has completed learning to tell the time on the hour, past and to the hour and what time it would be 10 or 20 minutes earlier or later, on our return to school we will be working on 'money'.

 

Children will need to understand the value of money so recognising coins and notes and understand how many pence in a £1.00, £2.00 coin, £5.00 note etc...

Children will need to know where a decimal point sits in £.p and what it means, they'll need to convert pence to pounds and vice versa and to work out the change for say a pencil that costs 45p, how much change will I get from £2.00.

To do this they can use actual coins and then move onto number lines and column addition or subtraction.

Maths work for this week

 

Take a look at what is in the Year 3 Revision booklet, see what you know.

I have attached the answer booklet for you to mark your work after but if you get an answer incorrect, don't worry. Ask an adult to help you and make sure that you can explain it back to them.

 

Could you write your own question for them to answer?

You'd need to know the answer to your own question too, so make sure you work it out.

 

 

This week's challenge is to make a puppet, any puppet you like and using any materials you want.

Give your puppet a name and an adventure.

Could you write me a story introducing your character and tell it's story.

ICT skills are important and typing up your own work does count towards

written assessments so you could take this

as a great opportunity to practise typing up your own story

but if you haven't got access to a computer/laptop,

please don't worry, use this as a handwriting exercise instead.

 

Check each sentence makes sense, capital letters and full stops in the right places, exciting verbs, adverbs, pronouns, dialogue (speech marks) and all the other grammar and punctuation we have worked on so far in Year 3.

When you have finished, take a photo and email the photo and the story to me either as a document or as a photograph of your story, for me to read at home please.

 

I love reading your stories!

Here are some examples of puppets you could make but use your own imagination if none of these suit you!

I look forward to seeing some super puppets and reading some exciting stories,

Love Mrs D x 

 

Melitta has been busy today making a paper bag puppet.

Ruby has asked me to share some photos of her playing when we had the lovely weather.

Great exercise Ruby!

Bethan has made a gorgeous puppet of a tiger that she has name Asia

and written me a lovely story for me to read today.

 

Ethan would like to share some pictures with you.
 
He's been very creative this past week and made a robot (with a little help from Dad),
a fishing rod with what he called silver tail pike,
a bug hotel (with help from Dad and Louise)
and a birthday card for Captain Tom Moore. 

He also wants to show you his shadow tracing, French rainbow and our family of stickmen!

Year 3

Want to master fractions before we come back to school?

 

https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/54454

Follow this link to some brilliant online lessons. You don't need mum and dad really as the teacher explains everything really well.

In the first lesson you'll need a pencil and paper to draw with, 20 small items, these could be cheerios, maltezers or action figures, whatever you choose. It'll give you a chance to pause the video whilst you get these items but you could be ultra prepared!

Let me know how you get on using our Guestbook, then we can all magpie each others thoughts and views about how we felt.

Good luck x

Mrs Thompson, Matilda, Georgia and Ellie have been up to lots of adventures

going on walks in the woods in search of rope swings, that looks lots of fun,

bike rides, painting the dustbin to thank the bin men for all their hard work,

lego and more baking.

I'm going to have to go on a diet if you all bring cake in! 

I'm so proud of you all!

Thank you for sending all your gorgeous photos to share with the class, of what you've been up to.

 

You have been busy and it looks like you're having a lot of fun too!

 

We definitely need a cake tasting competition when we get back,

Miss Atkins and I will be the judges and Bethan you're on tea making duty!

xx

 

 

 

Ellis, thank you!

 

What an absolutely gorgeous video. You brought a tear to my eye!

(Eloise - superb film making skills, you should apply to the BBC. x)

 

Year 3, I miss you all so, so much.

Fingers crossed we all get back to school before the end of the summer term. 

 

xx

 

Maria, Joseph and Willow have been busy too!

Seb has done some active learning today and has started doing his daily bite size lessons. He's done a history lesson this morning, looking at a photo of Taid, it was in black and white. He rang him and asked him questions about it.
 
He's started to read the World's Worst Children by David Walliams and is on chapter 8. He says it's really good. That's as good a recommendation as any!
 
Seb says "Hopefully, I am back to school soon."

Ethan would like to share some of the activities he's been doing during Lockdown.

It all looks very exciting!

He's made an Easter bonnet, been playing table tennis, taken part in the Lego Challenge and he's built and painted a bird house for the garden.

Well done Ethan and thank you for sharing. 

Poppy wanted to share some photos with you all, she's missing everyone lots!

She's been up to lots of activities over the Easter Holidays

including lots of Active Learn. 

Melitta has been very busy over the holidays doing science projects,

the 'Share a story' Challenge, nature hunts and some art and I'm sure lots more!

 

She too is missing everyone.

Let's hope we all get back to school before the summer term is out

Take a look at Lucy's photos
 
Lucy has created an African style mask; built a guinea pig house for her pet guinea pig using flour and water to create a glue (getting the science in there!).
 
She's also been knitting and sewing and has created a little bag for herself, some badges and a new pencil case for her mum using her sewing materials.
Lucy's loving reading a Jacqueline Wilson book at the moment, before starting Mallory Towers which was an Easter gift 
and she's been creating some little stories using a story teller dice which she loves!

Jessica has been busy too, take a look at what she's been doing since her baking day!

 

Below is a picture that she has drawn for us all x

Monday 13th April 2020 Week 4 of school closure

 

 

Active Learn - Maths

Looking on the Active Learn website, I can see some of you have started to access the online games / activities I've set for you. 

 

Ideally if you could play at least 3-5 games per day, challenge yourself by starting on the easiest game and progressing through to the 'Challenge'.

 

Doing this, you would really be helping yourselves to become 'fluent' or even 'masters'

in the different topic areas and expectations of maths at Year 3.

 

If you are accessing the 'Challenge' games and succeeding you'll be working towards the Year 4 expectations which will help you to be ready for your move into Year 4 in September.

Our leader board of most games completed is:

Jacob 42

Austin 41

Edwin 37

Home Learning Packs you took home before 'Lockdown'

 

Don't forget, telling the time is a life skill.

Have you completed the task of being able to tell the time and say what time is would have been 5, 10, 15 or 20 minutes earlier or later than the time given?

Do you know how many seconds are in a minute?

How many minutes in an hour?

How many hours in a day?

How many days in a week?

(Can you name them and spell them correctly?)

How many weeks in a year?

How many days in each month?

(Can you name, order and spell each month correctly?)

How many months in year? 

How many years in a decade?

How many years in a century? 

Can you tell the time using the 24 hour clock?

If you've started achieving these, you're doing amazing.

 

If you've achieved some or all of these, you're doing a fantabulous job in your work!

 

Keep going to the end of the list.

 

This week I have added an interactive quiz on days of the week and a few more!

 

 

I need feedback on what you'd like on our webpage too.

I'm open to suggestions from you children but also mums and dads,

tell me where I can help if I'm missing something you'd like.

Most tests taken and only missing out on passing all her tests by 1 question is Ruby!

 

Fantastic Ruby keep up your amazing work

 

 

 

 

Hello Year 3,

Well I'm definitely missing you all lots and lots (like Jellytots!).

 

I'm hoping you had a lovely Easter and (graciously received an enormous amount of chocolate) remembered

the true meaning of Easter where Jesus died on the cross for us all on Good Friday and

then came back to us on Easter Sunday.

 

Don't forget that I will look at the Accelerated Reader results again on Thursday,

will our 'leader board' still have the same names in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place?

 

Will you have passed all your tests this week?

 

I will do the 'tests passed' by the week as in Thursday to Thursday

so that the children who just missed out on all tests passed by 1 or 2 from a lot of tests taken,

have a chance of being part of it.

 

Please know I am very proud of you all, for reading for pleasure and still taking tests.

Reading is one of life's most important skills, it opens doors to so many things,

the best mathematician cannot show their understanding if they can't read the question.

 

It's great to see that some of you have been using the Active Learn for the maths games, these games will enhance your skills and recall of maths and number facts so keep up the fantastic work.

Remember, little and often :)

 

I think I put some science things onto Active Learn too so take a look.

 

In this gorgeous weather we are having, can you investigate plants?

 

This term, we would have been doing this in class, planting some seeds, in teams

and planning an experiment to see what conditions

a plant can grow in.

 

For example, one team might have wanted to see if a plant could grow without light

and so chosen 3 different places to put their plant to investigate this.

They would need to make a prediction about what they thought might happen

to each plant and which would grow the best.

 

They would then need to measure if a plant would grow with no light, a little light or with lots of light. 

They would water each of the plants the same amount, so keeping all the other conditions the same

whilst measuring if the seeds / plants would grow, depending on the amount of light they got.

 

Other things you could investigate are:

 

Can a plant survive without water?

 -

Can a plant survive if you cut all the roots off?

(One group did this last year!)

 -

Does a plant need plant food to grow?

(Check the instructions of the plant food and get mum / dad to help you)

 -

What kind a temperature does a plant need to grow in?

 

 

Make up your own question for your investigation, take photos, measure any growth and make a chart,

(remember, when you measure the plant, to measure from the '0' mark on the ruler, not the end of the ruler!)

 

It's up to you what plants you use, you don't have to go out and buy new plants,

you could use 3 plants you already have and see what happens to them instead of how they grow,

but please check with mum and dad first - don't go killing off their

beautiful, luscious greens!

 

Please send any photos you'd like to share with me and the rest of your friends in our class

but please get mum or dad to say that they give permission for me to put the photo on the website,

I'll not put them up without this emailed to me - sorry.

  

 

Lucy has asked me to share some photos of what she has been up to during the Easter holidays so far. As we know, Lucy was meant to be visiting some of her family in Northern Ireland over the Easter break, we all knew how excited she was about going and then how disappointed that it might not happen because of the Lockdown!
So instead Lucy has been entertaining herself (and her family) by making star cookies, brownies, pizza, focaccia and Turkish flat breads  -  all of which look and sound delicious!
But the most impressive thing of all, Lucy has been camping in her back garden to make up for missing out on her trip to Northern Ireland, how incredibly EXCITING!
Take a look at her photos below :)

Dear All,

If you'd like to share some family prayer time as we come to the end of Lent and respect Holy Week, here a couple of links from the diocese.

Maybe light a candle and find something to have or make a 'Prayer Intentions Box' like we do in the classroom, show mum and dad how we write our own prayer intentions and place them in the box to send up to God and then share a prayer together.

Easter Bonnets

Would you all like to make an Easter Bonnet and send me photos to put online?

We could have an online Easter Bonnet parade!

(Look for ideas online or on Pinterest if you are stuck, there's loads of ideas out there.)

Can't wait to see what designs you come up with!

Have fun :)

Hi, another little something I've seen online that I thought was quite a nice idea.

It doesn't have to be on a lollipop stick it could be written on a small slip of paper (maybe decorated) and folded up in a favourite cup or something.

Remember to put in a good mixture of fun games, story times, school work and house hold chores!

Enjoy

Adriel has been very busy BBQing and baking some delicious looking food, apparently all the cakes are now in his tummy!

He's not saved any for us! :(

I saw this drawing below, on the internet this week and thought it was fantastic.

Could you do your own take on it maybe?

I have some amazing, budding artists in Year 3!

If you do and you'd like me to share it here, take a photo of it and email it to me, just say that you want me to share it, so I know I have your permission please :)

Tom and his sister Bea have been making rainbows using skittles and hot water, how gorgeous!

Yesterday was Palm Sunday (5th April). In preparation for Easter Sunday next weekend, why not read the powerpoint about Palm Sunday and the Easter Story then print off, colour in and glue together this Easter Story booklet? Can you tell someone else the story?

HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY MISS ATKINS - HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY XXX

Hello All,

Here's wishing you all Happy Easter Holidays.

I want you all to know that I will still be posting things here and I know that you have all received an email with a username and password for extra work but please remember  you are now on your Easter Holidays and so really try and have some fun and relaxation time. Build dens and have picnics in the garden, play games with your family, help in the garden and bake cakes but most importantly make some happy memories and don't forget to send me any photos you want to share and I'll post on here. (I can only post things here if I've got written permission from mum or dad.)

Also, don't eat too much chocolate! :)

Lots of love to you all,

Mrs Durkin xxx

Monday 30th March 2020 Week Two of School Closure

Well done to Jesse, Charlie and Poppy who are learning to tie their ties this week, looks like you're doing great and will be all ready for Year 4 (and Poppy Year 2)!

Jessica has been baking for her science project (I think) maybe she's been doing more 'licking of the bowl' but regardless it looks like she's made some delicious cakes and had lots of fun! Maybe when we get back to school, she'll bring some in for us all to sample? :)

Hi Year 3,

Have a go at this reading comprehension and Ultimate Times Challenge, you can just write your answers down, you don't need to print the question sheet off if you can't or don't want to. Message me if you want the answer sheet to check you've got them all right x

If you and your family would like to take some time out to have family prayer time, maybe light a candle and follow some of the Ten Ten resources here are links to guide you.

Memories of happier days which seems such a long time ago now.

Hopefully it won't be too long until we can all make some more happy memories xxx

Take a look at the photos Ethan has sent for his science project. He's made a tornado in a bottle!

His video is great but it unfortunately won't load on the website - sorry Ethan :( 

 

Hello Everyone, I hope you and your families are all well and staying safe. 

Your learning packs will keep you with work to do for a few weeks but other things that are really important for you to learn how to do independently are being able to:

Tie your own shoe laces

Tie your own (grown up) school tie

Do your own top button on your shirt

Make a slice of toast and butter or jam it (as you like)

Lay the table, clear it after a meal and wash the dishes 

Tidying your own bed room and making your own bed

Show me other skills you can do to help mum and dad, can you hoover up? Make a cup of tea (check with mum and dad first and be careful of boiling water)? Serve the dinner (think of those fractions being equal!)

 

Send me photos for our class gallery x

 

Year 3, share your photos with the rest of your class and your friends!

Year 3, Joseph has successfully completed his science experiment by making his own bag pipes! What an excellent invention Joseph, I can't wait to hear all the information and the noise it makes when we get back to school. I'm really impressed!

If anyone else wants to share their experiments with the rest of the class, email them to me at sdurkin.olsw@ctkcc.co.uk and I'll post them here on our class page.

I'd love to see them :) xx

Monday 23rd March 2020 Week One of School Closure

Hi Year 3,

New to our class webpage, you can now write to me using our class Guest Book (on Year 3 main page). Why wait to show me your science experiments and different activities you are doing?

I'd love to hear what you're up to.

Stay safe, love and hugs,

Mrs Durkin x

Year 3 School Closure Work

 

Year 3, 

I hope you are all well and enjoying spending time with your families. Remember lots of board games (no tipping the monopoly board if you don't win!), help around the house with chores, relax (in-between doing the work in your home learning pack!) and play in the garden, you could even start some weeding!

If you need me at all please contact me on my email address: sdurkin.olsw@ctkcc.co.uk , I can be contacted during school hours and will respond within 24hours, if you're doing your maths homework and learning to tell the time, you'll know how long this is. If I am unwell, school will notify you of who to contact. 

Please complete the home learning pack, there's enough work in the pack to give you an hour a day for up to 3 weeks and I am available to discuss any questions you have regarding the work set. See below if you want to look at any other activities to do.

Believe it or not, it's only Monday and I'm already missing your mischievous behaviour and smiley faces! (I can't believe I just wrote that! ;))

Hope it's not too long until I see you again,

Mrs Durkin xxx

 

 

DAILY READING

Read a great book for at least 20 minutes each  day. Children can log in to Accelerated Reader at home using the following link (and your normal school username and password for accelerated reader) to record your reading and take a short quiz about the book. 

ukhosted95.renlearn.co.uk/6699192 (this link will take you to the children's home page) 

 

Parents: You can use your home connect password to track your child's reading progress (the children cannot complete tests using the parents account, for this they need to use their own account details which are the ones they use in school). 

 

 DAILY MATHS

For a weeks worth of lessons on fractions and tenths, please see the following link. Watch the video and then have a go at the accompanying worksheet. Aim for one lesson a day e.g. lesson 1 on Monday, lesson 2 on Tuesday.
