Note from your teachers:
Good afternoon Year 3,
We hope that you and your families are all happy and healthy. We continue to be amazed by the wonderful work we are receiving on a daily basis. We love hearing from you and seeing what you’ve been up to. Don’t forget to send us a photograph of your favourite piece of work once a week.
We’ve seen some lovely handwriting, beautifully illustrated Bible stories and storyboards and really thoughtful prayers - well done! We’re looking forward to seeing some great use of imagination in today’s Science task where you can create your own imaginary animal - what wonderful ideas will you come up with?
Are you remembering to practise your times tables? Perhaps you are playing against other members of your family to see who is quickest at answering questions? If not, why don’t you try it - it’s good fun!
Keep up the excellent effort!
As the churches are closed at the moment, we know that you are continuing to pray with your families at home. It is important that we continue to follow Jesus. To help you do this we have created an R.E. page on the home learning area. As the Holy Week approaches, please use these tasks. There will be further details in the newsletter tomorrow.

Please remember, that if you are using a tablet device, you should download

Friday - Geography, France
Today we would like you to design a menu of French food.
Include a recipe and illustrate with the ingredients.
This clip from BBC Bitesize might be of some help to you.
Thursday - Science
Today we would like you be creative and create a new animal.
It could be imaginary, it could be a mix of two animals, it could be from a different world.
Is it a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore?
What are it's characteristics?
Where does it live (it's habitat)?
Continue to log onto the Charanga website charanga.com/yumu using your Username and Password given to you on a sticker by your teacher. If you do not have this email, contact Mrs Romhany via Music@st-helens-jun.essex.sch.uk or via the link on the ‘Contact teachers’ section and I will email it to you.
I can see many of you have been using the Recorder book ‘Blown Away’ – Remember to start from the beginning and work steadily through. That way you can work on your technique (making a good sound and covering the holes.) Why not keep a tick list of the pieces you have played, so you can show me back at school or you can email it to me?
Continue to look at the topic ‘Three Little Birds’ – we have been doing this in class. Go through the activities, starting with Step 1 and moving through as you wish.
I have added some more to Charanga. I could see lots of you were enjoying your singing, so there are lots of new songs under ‘Assignments’ – at the very bottom; some pop, some film and theatre – something for everyone!
If you are interested in a particular instrument, I have added the guitar, keyboard or violin course.
Keep singing and playing! And involve your family too!
