Friday 3rd July

Here is Issue 2 of The Fixby Family Newsletter!

Happy Friday Year 3,


The end of the week has arrived again. These weeks are flying by! I have particularly enjoyed this week as it has been soooo nice seeing each and every one of you that I have visited. I know that it felt strange for some of you when we turned up on your doorstep, as you are used to seeing us in school but we really appreciated you allowing us to come and visit you at your own home. Please keep on sending emails and pictures for the last couple of weeks before we break up for summer. It is great to hear your news and see what you have been up to. 


Don't forget to submit your stories to Virgin Radio's competition using the website link below. We may have a winning story from Fixby.


I look forward to hearing from you all soon. 


Have a super weekend. 


Love from


Mrs Martin

Happy Friday!


This has definately been an amazing week! Seeing all of your lovely faces again and finding out what you’ve been up to has been great. 

I can’t believe we are on the 2 week countdown till the summer holidays and the end of another school year. Where has the year gone? 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Today is my brother’s birthday, so we are having a weekend of celebrating. What are you going to be getting up to? 

Speak soon.

Love from Miss North x



It's arithmetic Friday! 

Have a look through the revision booklet, answering the questions on topics that we have already covered in school.



Look closely at the image below. This image is called 'Dragon Eggs'. 


  • Describe an egg and see if a partner can guess it.
  • Which dragon do you think is the most dangerous? Why?
  • Which dragon do you think will be the friendliest? Why?
  • Which species could survive in cold temperatures? How do you know?
  • Which dragon egg would you like to find?
  • What would you do if you came across a Norwegian Ridgeback egg?



Using the picture above on Dragon Eggs, write a set of instructions on how to care for the egg and then once hatched, a baby dragon. We have attached a checklist to make sure that you have included all the skills needed to write a set of instructions.

You can also use the template below to help you lay it out.



Exciting Paintings! Learn the basics of exciting paintings.

This lesson includes:

  • three video clips demonstrating different famous artists and their exciting paintings

  • three activities to try at home


When painting, it can be hard to imagine how you will make your piece of work stand out against others.

It can be useful to look at the work of famous artists and get inspiration from how they achieved it.

In looking at previous exciting paintings, try asking yourself:

  • What topic have they focussed on?
  • Which techniques have they used?
  • What style have they delivered in?
  • How have they left their own personal touch within the piece?

We're going to take a look at three artists - Andy WarholWassily Kandinsky and Jan van Eyck.

Of course, there are many other artists you could look at for inspiration, but by doing this we will see how each artist provides us with a very different set of answers to the questions above.
