Well done for completing the school work at home. Many of you have emailed me with your work and I am super impressed with your efforts. It can be very distracting to work at home but many of you are showing me that you are very committed to your learning and have worked really hard. If you have not already done so, please email me with your work so I can see how you are getting on. You can document your learning through photographs or videos attached to the email. You do not need to send me every piece of work... just the ones you are most proud of laugh.

 

I have created a new timetable for you and hope you enjoy the activities. Remember to not rush through your work and take your time to think about what you need to do. ALWAYS present your work neatly and check what you've done when you think you have finished. There is always room for improvement!

 

I will be making phone calls next week to speak to you all and see how you are getting on. In the meantime, please check your 2Do's on Purple Mash as some of you have not completed the work. Do not worry if you cannot see the 'hand in' button. Some activities do not have it but records your scores so I can see your progress. I will set some extra activities on the 2Do list if you find you have completed all of your work and you want to keep busy. Don't worry....they will be super fun and exciting!

 

Miss you all and hope to see you soon.

 

Mrs Howarth

  2. Can you guess what special power a Spying Giraffe may have?
  3. What type of story do you think Night Zookeeper and the Spying Giraffes will be? A True story, Science Fiction, Fantasy or a Fairy Tale?

 

Click on the web link and watch the 1st video then answer the following questions in your workbook…

 

1. Who were the main characters discussed in the video?
2. What is Tom's main job as a Night Zookeeper?
3. Describe some of the skills you may need to have as a Night Zookeeper
4. Why do you think Sam would be a good character to include in a story?
5. Can you invent your own character to live in the World of Night?

Additional School Closure Resources 

Welcome to Blossom Year 3

                                      

Year Three is a special year for our children to grow, develop and do great things,

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future,” Jeremiah 11:29

Here in Blossom class, you will find 26 excited and friendly children who are taught by Mrs Howarth and Miss Barlow. We are passionate about ensuring all children are recognised for their individual gifts and talents and feel honoured to shape such young minds.

We encourage a challenge and are keen to learn new and interesting topics. Our children are very welcoming and love to showcase their developing skills within topic afternoons, where parents and carers can join us for exciting activities.
