End of Half Term

Thank you to all the parents who have registered for our class Edmodo site. Please note that your child will not be able to access the Y3 classroom with the registration they had for Y2. Each virtual classroom has different login information. We would like to begin posting homework on the Edmodo site once all the children have access to it. Until then, we will use this class page. I will post a brief message on our class page so you will be able to see if your registration works. I will admit children who register during the holiday before we return to school. We would like to have our classroom up and running in case we have to close our bubble. 

Our enquiry question for the autumn term is “Do I see what is really there?” Over the past half term, the children have looked closely at trees. We have taken advantage of the school woodland area and garden to closely observe a variety of trees and leaves. The children have looked at photographs and artist representations of trees, and they have been involved in various art activities to recreate what they see. The children have learned to look carefully and to discuss what they see. This has helped to develop their vocabulary, and the children used some of this vocabulary to write stories set in the woods. Towards the end of the term, the children looked at different styles of poetry, and they created their own poem using language from their art lessons.   

We are delighted with the work the children have produced, and we have created a class book of photographs, comments from the children and some of the artwork. We would love you to see this book, so we will find a way to share what we have done so far when we start using Edmodo. 

Over the holiday, please continue to encourage your child to look closely at their natural environment and encourage them to talk about what they see. Also, please continue to read regularly with your child. They have all worked hard this half term, and I'm sure they are ready to have some time to play and relax.

Have a lovely half term break. 

Homework week ending 16.10.2020



This week your child has made a single decade Rosary. Please help your child to use it at home when they say their prayers. The Hail Mary is one of the prayers the children need to know when they make their First Holy Communion.


The children have written wonderful poems this week about the woods. They were encouraged to use the vocabulary we have been learning during our story writing topic to describe the woods in detail. Please read some poems to and with your child this week and discuss them together. Which poems do they like best and why? The children could look for rhyming patterns in the poem eg in the first verse, if words at the end of the second and fourth line rhyme, check to see if this is the pattern for all the verses. They could look at how the poem is presented on the page, noting the capital letter at the start of each line and any other punctuation that helps the reader to read the poem with the correct intonation.


The children are getting faster at recalling number pairs to 100. Please help to develop this skill further by asking questions like:

If I spent 37p at the shop, how much change would I get from one pound?

I need one pound to buy some stickers and I have saved 59p already. How much more do I need to save to have enough to buy them?

Homework week ending 9.10.20



Please continue to help your child to learn words from the spelling list. This week we have covered words ending in il and al, and words ending in y.


The children have been introduced to column addition and subtraction this week. For help to reinforce the learning, please use the Top Marks website where there are some interactive games to play. The games begin with a menu so you can select a level to suit your child. To build up confidence, it is best to start at a level slightly easy for your child, and then move up to a higher level.


Thank you for reminding your child to return their reading book on Thursdays. Please continue to read regularly with your child to help foster a love of reading.

Homework week ending 2nd September 2020


This week we have been looking at words ending in le and el. Please see if your child can remember which words belong with which grapheme. As the le and el graphemes are pronounced in the same way, the children need to learn which ones belong together. In class the children tried drawing a picture of a table with a little apple and a little bottle in the middle of the table. By grouping the words together, the children should find it easier to remember if the word needs le or el at the end. Please encourage your child to draw a picture which includes some of the el words.
