Hello Class 3!
Just a quick message to say that we were busy reactivating Tapestry last week, and it's great to see many of you have responded to the email by reactivating your accounts. If you haven't done this yet, please do, as it's the easiest way of maintaining contact with you and your children. We will be adding to Tapestry over the coming days and weeks, and look forward to seeing what you have been up to as a family. Feel free to add a video, picture or message! Likewise, if you have a question you would like to ask, this is the best way of making contact with us.
Any problems with your account please email the school office.
Sending lots of love to all the children - we are missing you all tremendously!

Hello Class 3!
I just wanted to send a quick 'hello!' to you all and send you my love as I am missing you all lots! I hope you are enjoying the sunshine with your families and settling into our 'new normal' of staying at home. We have been bouncing lots on the trampoline, reading lots of lovely books, baking yummy scrummy biscuits and have been exploring our local countryside as we take Barley for her daily dog walk.
Remember that you have lots of things you can do on Purple Mash such as emailing each other and me - I know some of you have been having a go at this!
Other ideas of things you could try to do:
Below, I have recorded a story for you to enjoy...I wonder if any of you have read this book before!
Enjoy, stay safe and be kind.
Home Learning opportunities!
There are many ways you can work at home, with many different online resources, websites and games you can explore. Below is a list of really great places to find activities and learning to keep you busy if you’re stuck at home with nothing to do!
There are loads of super learning based games at BBC Bitesize covering a range of different subject areas:
There are lots of resources you can print and take part in at home on Twinkl. They have put together this home learning pack which can be downloaded here:
Lightbot is a fun coding game to support the ICT curriculum.
You can always log on to Purple mash and use your login, which is in your red home learning books.

The children have settled in well to Year 1 and made a great start to our new topic. With capes made, masks decorated and muscles warmed up, we have embarked on many Superhero missions - a superhero treasure hunt, Supertato making, Superveg assembling, trap building (for those pesky evil peas!), vegetable exploring, and completing many rescue missions, to name a few!
After half term, we began our new topic called 'Memory Box'. As a class we are enjoying listening to each other share their photo timelines to show their life so far! Thank you so much for all your hard work at home in producing these. It is so lovely to watch and listen to the children as they proudly take centre stage in Class 3!
Toy Museum Workshop
On Monday 11th November, the children enjoyed welcoming the Toy museum into our class to look at and play with many old toys. We were challenged to sort a selection of toys into old and new, looking carefully at what the toys were made of to help give us clues - we were very good at this. Sonia helped us to each make a thaumotrope, which we were able to bring home. One of our favourite things about the morning was playing with the replica toys. A super session which inspired lots of fantastic writing! Great work Class 3!
During this term, we will be learning all about animals.
