Mr Goacher - Year 3 Teacher
Dear Parents and Children
Welcome back to the most unusual summer term that I’m sure any of us will ever experience. It certainly does seem odd not to be explaining all this to you at the front of the classroom!
We hope that you had a good Easter break, even in lockdown and that you have been enjoying this beautiful weather!
First of all, I would like to thank everyone for everything they are doing and all your hard work with your home learning. I appreciate this must still be very new and difficult for everyone but you are all doing a great job. It’s great to see so many people logging in to both Education City and TT Rockstars and keeping busy. I am loving getting emails from different people keeping me informed and up to date with all the fantastic learning that is going on in people’s homes. I am really missing seeing everyone in the classroom so it is great to hear what you have been doing.
Each week we will set weekly tasks for the children which you will find on the Year 3 Home Learning, this will then link you to our new learning platform called Seesaw. Information about how to use the site and access codes will be sent via email.
Each week new maths themed activities will be posted, these will cover a range of skills that the children have learned in school to help them practice and retain these skills, alongside introducing new skills for them to learn.
English tasks will be set each week for children to complete. These tasks will include either a writing, reading or a grammar task.
Please continue to read at least 3 times a week. On the Home Learning page, there are links to websites that you can access books if you have exhausted your collection at home.
Also, on our Millfields YouTube channel I will be reading one of my favourite books from my own childhood ‘Little Wolf’s Book of Badness’. So, stay tuned each week for the next instalment.
Science this term will be looking at forces.
This term’s focus topic is the Ancient Egyptians. Each week I will post a different activity based around this topic. These will range from research-based tasks, geography tasks and even some art and DT tasks.
Each week we will be linking you to some websites to encourage you to complete some physical activity every day from Joe Wicks to Yoga!
Also keep an eye out on the Crewe and Nantwich School Sport Partnership Twitter page for the ‘Virtual Challenge’. These are sporting events that you can take part in at home. When a new event is released, I will also upload a video explaining it onto our YouTube channel. I look forward to seeing your entries.
Please email us with any questions, concerns or to share any learning or enjoyable activities your child has completed.
Stay safe and keep smiling,
