Monday 22nd June
Happy Monday Year 3!
I hope that you all had a lovely weekend!
On Saturday I went to the shops to get some food for our Father's Day meal before I went to my friend's house to have a catchup in her garden. I have not seen her since the start of lockdown so it was lovely to see her (even though we still had to keep our distance and we couldn't hug!)
It was Father's Day on Sunday so I woke up early and made my dad a coffee and some breakfast, ready for when he came downstairs. We then had a lovely, relaxing day, watching some films and we went on a lovely long walk as a family.
What did you do this weekend?
It's back to learning and we are on the countdown to the end of the school year already! This is our 4th week, so not long to go! How quickly has this year gone?
It doesn't seem long since I welcomed you into Year 3 with Mrs Buttery! I am so proud to say that you are my first.
Speak tomorrow (but remember you can email me whenever).
Love from Miss North
Happy Monday Year 3,
I hope that you have had a lovely weekend. I have had a super time with my family. We went for an ice cream at Yummy Yorkshire and had a BBQ on Saturday evening. It was lovely to spend some time in the garden as the weather was better this weekend.
As yesterday was Fathers Day, I cooked a nice Sunday lunch for Mr Martin and Harry and Jacob bought him presents and looked after him all day. I hope you all had a great time with the important men in your lives, whether this was your dad, grandad or uncle.
We only have 4 weeks left until the summer break. I can't believe that it is nearly the end of the school year. What a strange year it has turned out to be. It still only seems two minutes since I welcomed you all into 3/4M.
I hope you enjoy the activities today and I sill speak yo you tomorrow.
It's spelling test day!
We will upload your new spellings tomorrow.
This week we will be focusing on the topic, 'Shape', specifically looking at the angles in shapes. Watch the video below to find out about Right Angles. The worksheet and answers are also linked below.

Today we will be writing some imaginary words. This will help us when we write our nonsense poem, tomorrow.
Nonsense poetry does not always make sense. Poets will use made-up words alongside real words, and talk about made-up things like imaginary creatures.
It’s lots of fun to read and is usually very silly!
Watch the video clip attached below, of the poet Spike Milligan performing his famous nonsense poem called ‘On the Ning Nang Nong’.
Listen carefully and see if you can spot all the nonsense words he uses.
Now you have watched Spike Milligan read his nonsense poem, have a go at reading it again yourself. You can read quietly or out loud if you like.
Pay close attention to any silly or unexpected words.
When you've finished reading, write a list of all the nonsense words that Spike Milligan used in this poem.
Which nonsense word is your favourite and why?
You are going to write your own nonsense poem but first you need to create some of your own nonsense words and phrases.
Complete page 2 of this ‘Imaginary words’ activity sheet.
You can write your own definitions for question 3 if you don’t have anyone to swap with.
Don’t think too much! Write whatever words and phrases come into your mind. Make them interesting and funny to say.
Here are some ideas to get you started: bon jingle, fizzle stickle, fingle flop on the hipple hopper!
Today's reading activity is another inference picture. Look closely at the picture and then answer the questions below.
Fingers crossed the weather will begin to improve, and we'll start to have a better summer. To make us feel happier, let's complete some summer crafts.
