Good Morning Year three.

I can't believe this is the last week of you (not) being in school. I have really missed you all and feel cheated that I haven't been able to teach such an amazing class for the whole year.

I know that most of you have been working really hard and completing the remote learning. Izzy has been working incredibly hard and in touch with me daily to show me her amazing work. Also Archie T sent me a fantastic voice over for the film themed topic. Let's see if a few more of you can send me your work this week.

Good Morning Year 3.

I hope you are all well and not too fed up with the weather and missing school. I have really missed you all and know that many of you have been working hard on the remote learning page. Izzy especially has been really impressing me! Well done to all of you that have been continuing with your learning at home.


Focus theme: Fun with Film!

This week will focus on examining characters and settings through the use of film. There will be opportunities to look at character thoughts, feelings and reactions to different situations before completing some responses in writing. Spend a day being inspired by poetry through film with some exciting activities to complete, and, to finish the week, learn all about The Story of Lego!

Good Morning year three.

I hope you have had a nice weekend. I didn't manage to avoid the rain and I got soaked walking Murphy on both days!

This week is all about monsters, have fun!

Happy Friday Year 3 smiley
