Welcome back to the Summer term. I just want to say thank you for all the hard work you are doing at home. Also, thank you for all the great photos and videos you have sent in, it's great to see the children engaged in their learning.
I have added the spellings for both year groups for this half term to the class webpage, there is also a handwriting sheet to go with the spellings and a 'look, cover, write sheet' for practice, the children know how to use these. The children should learn their spellings throughout the week and have a spelling test on Friday.
I will be putting work on the class page to do with the topic - CHOCOLATE. If, at home, you have any super ideas to add to this topic then please let me know and I can share them on the website.
Take care and stay safe,
Mrs Mitchell - email - [email protected]
Did someone say chocolate?!
Hi Class 3,
I hope you all had a lovely half term and enjoyed the sunshine. Mrs M has bought me a new three storey town house. There are lots of ladders to run up and down, a big (and noisy!) wheel and a penthouse bedroom! I feel like a proper Princess - Ooooo Princess Rosie does have a nice ring to it.
So, it's back to home learning. I hear that your topic is CHOCOLATE! Sounds fab, Mrs M is amazing at choosing great topics for you to learn about. I look forward to seeing the work you do, I'm sure there will be plenty of chocolate tasting going on!
I'm not a big fan of chocolate but I do love a bit of cucumber and there's some in my cage right now, so I need to go. I will write again soon.
Take care and stay safe,
Love from Rosie.

Hint: In unit 4 you can use the Design button to add more fish to your tank. You also need to use the 'when clicked' button. Drag the 'when clicked' command across, then click on the ? and select your fish. Drag this fish's name across from the left and put it under the 'when clicked' command. Click on the ? after the fish and tell it what to do. Repeat for all your fish.
Remember - complete your Maths and English tasks before your coding or other work!

Hola Class 3
I hope you are all well and had a lovely Easter Break and enjoyed some chocolate eggs. Mrs M had a huge Easter egg, it was a Fruit n Nut one, the actual egg was fruit n nut! Well she went nuts for it, she ate the whole egg within 2 days and as for the sharing bar ......... there wasn't much sharing involved!
Whilst the dogs have been away I've been out to play, as you can see in the video, getting my one bit of daily exercise outside my home, as well as this I have been having some wheely good fun in my wheel (get it!) Also, I have been busy building a new sleep area in my cage, it's nice and cosy.
I have got a couple of Hamster Jokes for you;

I'm a very funny hamster!

Welcome to Class 3
Mrs Mitchell is our Class 3 teacher, Mrs Powell and Mrs Prior are our teaching assistants. We look forward to working with the children and their parents throughout the school year.
Class 3 is shared by children in Years 3 and 4.
In Class 3 the children cover lots of different topics from Ancient Greece to The Rainforest. They are all extremely fascinating and exciting. Also, it gives the children the opportunity to explore, question and discover.

Class 3 Routines
- Homework – is given out every Friday and needs to be handed in by the following Thursday.
- PE – we have two PE lessons every week. Full PE kit is expected to be in school at all times this includes; PE shorts, PE top, trainers, tracksuit bottoms for colder weather. Girls will need a spare pair of socks.
- Children in Class 3 go swimming in the summer term.
- Spellings – we have a spelling test every Friday, please read through the spellings with your children.
- Reading – it is vital that children read at least four times a week outside of school. It will really help them to progress in all of their subjects, especially their writing. Ideally, children should read to an adult who can ask questions about what is being read.
WHEN WE BEGIN TO READ, WE BEGIN TO FIND THE WORDS TO WRITE
Before half term Class 3 enjoyed an afternoon exploring their own well being. We enjoyed a presentation of inspirational pictures with some beautiful music and then discussed which were our favourites and which scenes helped us to feel calm or inspired. Later we designed our own very special un-worry islands which we could explore in our imaginations. Some of our islands had special places to live such as tree houses, magic caravans, lighthouses or caves. We included people or animals that we could visit and many of our islands had fabulous features such as magical playgrounds, cafes which served unlimited ice cream and pirate ships to explore. After that we went outside to try some cloud watching on the field and played games to help us to work as a team, have fun and stay fit. Back in the classroom we listened to some calming music, sang some of our favourite songs and completed some artwork. It was a great afternoon and we found lots of ways of feeling happy and calm.
