Year 3 Update

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all of the lovely work produced by the year 3 children. I have marked and commented on much of this work already. I have also updated MyMaths and PurpleMash with further learning opportunities. As well as this, I would highly recommend PurpleMash’s spelling area. Within this, there are numerous resources which cover the year 3 spelling curriculum. It breaks down the spelling strands into weekly activities, making it more manageable for the children.

I will also post work onto the year 3 blog for children to access as regularly as I can.

Best wishes

Year 3 Blog

Like Year 4 and 6, I have created a blog for the year 3 children to share work and communicate with myself and one another. To access the blog, all the children have to do is log into Purple Mash, choose the green sharing icon on the top and go into shared blogs. You will see the Year 3 blog. There is also a help icon if anyone needs further support.

I look forward to seeing all of your work.

Best wishes

Maths for Year 3, 4, 5 and 6

As a Key Stage, we have decided to ask all children to participate in the ‘Daily Maths Lessons’ offered by Gareth Metcalfe.  Gareth is a very experienced primary Maths specialist teacher and consultant, who has worked alongside our school to develop maths teaching in school.

Gareth is offering online lessons everyday and today’s lesson is already uploaded.  We would like children to watch these videos, pause when they need to work out questions and put all of their working out in their home learning books.  It would be hugely beneficial to the children if you could sit with them while they complete the maths lesson.  We appreciate that you will all be extremely busy at the moment, but these lessons really do offer the second best alternative to being in school and learning with teachers.

Good Morning,

As well as fulfilling my school duties, I also have my own children to educate at home during this difficult time. Stay safe everyone.

Kind regards

KS2 Eggshibition

Just a little message from the wonderful staff at Preston Park Museum. The whole of KS2 has designed and created their own egg to go on view over the easter holidays. Please follow the link to the museum website and enjoy all of the children’s hard work last week. 

All the staff and volunteers at Preston Park Museum send our thanks to you for taking part in the ‘Eggshibition’ 2020. Special thanks go to your staff for enabling your groups and school children to take part in producing this fantastic piece of community artwork.

As you are aware, many public institutions and organisations are closing this week until further notice and unfortunately the Museum has had to make the same decision.

Thankfully we managed to finish installing the ‘Eggshibition’ and some lucky members of the public got to see it in person on Tuesday and Wednesday!

We have taken lots of photographs and posted them on our facebook page so feel free to share any of these images on your own social media platforms, to share a bit of colour and joy.

Well done KS2 🙂

Year 3 Trip Postponed

We have decided to postpone the year 3 trip to Saltholme, which was  due to take place on Wednesday 18th March. Further information regarding a new date for the visit will follow when we have more details.

If there are any queries regarding this matter, please speak to myself on the door at the start/end of school.

Year 3 Tesco Visit

The year 3 children will be visiting Tesco on Wednesday 11th March as part of our maths work on money. Please could all children bring £1 to school on this day.

Year 3 Trip to Saltholme

Just a reminder that the year 3 school trip is taking place on Wednesday 18th March. All the information is provided in the ‘Forms’ section of the app, along with a consent form. If there are any issues accessing the information, please feel free to speak to me on the door at the beginning/end of the school day.

Saltholme staff have asked that all children bring a pair of wellies for the trip due to the severe weather we have had recently.

Year 1 2 3 Christmas Performance

For the performance tomorrow evening please could your child be back at school for 5:40pm at the latest. Please could your child come to the main school entrance and make their way to their classrooms where staff will be waiting.

Year 1 – Your alien head band and Christmas top/jumper should already be in school from the afternoon performance. Please ensure these are in school by the morning of Tuesday 10th December.

Year 2/3 – Your costumes are in school but please remember any extras you need e.g. tights, trousers, different shoes.

After the performance the children will change in their classrooms and be handed back to parents individually.

Thank you for your continued support.
