Year 3

Friday 22nd May


Good morning everyone!


Another week of home learning comes to an end today and can you believe it’s also the last day of Summer Term 1? We’re heading into the half term holidays so that means this will be our last message for a while, but we will be back here and on the blog after the holidays, eager to touch base with you.


Have you read anything good recently? Would you recommend it to your friends? Reading is incredibly important and something I personally love to do in my spare time. Now before I choose a book to read I often look at the reviews. This is where I get other peoples opinions about the book and I can see how many stars they have given it. Reviews don't give the ending away or spoil any surprises about the story, they just say what was good or not so good (in their opinion) and I find this really useful before buying a book. The holidays are a perfect time to get some more reading done so we have uploaded a selection of book review templates on the English page under the Reading tab. It can be fiction or non-fiction, book or magazine, if you read it you can review it. Why not post it on the blog for others to see as this is a great way for your friends to get ideas and recommendations for what book to read next.


Carrying on the reading theme, BBC Bitesize has put up their weekly Reading lesson. A great way to practise your comprehension skills – you can access it HERE.


Now Year 3 did you know that there is a star amongst us? I received this very exciting message from Miss Whitehead to share with you all:


Miss Whitehead is famous!

Hey Year 3, you might not be able to see me in the classroom at the moment but you can see me on television instead! I was walking through the park when a a camera crew must have recognised that I was a star in the making and asked me a few questions about going on holiday. Have a look at the video - you may even see me a few times! I hope it makes you smile! 


It definitely made me smile and you can access the video underneath this message.


Ok Year 3 that's quite a lot from us this morning! I'm sure you are ready to get on with your day. Take the time over the next couple of weeks to play, relax, rest up and enjoy the time with your family. The website will be here if you wish to access any resources and we look forward to being back with you for another term shortly.


Keep smiling and look after each other,

Miss W and Miss W
