While you are at home, we will update this page weekly with activities and challenges to keep you occupied. Don't forget to check for Mrs Withe's weekly challenges too.
We hope you enjoy them!
Dear Year 3,
All the adults in Year 3 hope that you have had a relaxing and happy Easter break. We have been very lucky with the weather which has allowed us the opportunity for many walks, cycle rides and other forms of exercise locally. I have spotted a number of you walking/scooting or riding around school whilst I was in last week. I really enjoyed speaking to a few children and parents too. I hope to be able to speak to all of you over the coming weeks. It would be lovely to share some photos of our walks and any work or activities we have done at home. I will start us off with a photo I took on Saturday on a cycle ride near my home.
School really is not the same without you all here. We miss you very much and can’t wait for us all to be back together.
In the section below you will find your home learning tasks for the week, there is plenty to keep you busy, but remember to work at your own pace. First look at the Timetable document. This will give you access to all the resources that are not linked in the Resource Section below by clicking on the web links. It would be great if you got the chance to dip into all of the subjects, but we understand that this might not be possible.
We would love to see photos of any finished work. I will be uploading a selection onto our web page as often as possible, so do keep checking in to see how your friends have been spending their time.
As always, stay safe and healthy,
With very best wishes,
Miss Wales, Mr Robson and the Year 3 team.

Dear Parents / Carers and children of Hepworth and Van Gogh,
I hope the past couple of days have been okay for you and your families! I hope everyone is well. Over the next few weeks we will begin to adjust to this new type of normal. We are all thinking of you all the time – don’t forget to stay in touch via the Year 3 email address firstname.lastname@example.org To begin with, Mr Robson and I will be a bit like a tag team. He is working in school this week with those children who need to be in, whilst I am working at home, updating the website with resources for those children at home, answering any questions you or your parents have and supporting you the best I can. Next week we will swap around, so Mr Robson will support online and I will support in school.
Please be aware that we are not teaching in school in the normal way, merely offering essential childcare for the people directly involved in the response and allowing them to access the same resources as those working at home, so please do not worry that you are missing out on anything. I would like to emphasis to the children working at home, please do not feel that we do not want you in class or that other children are considered more special than you. That is not the case. We would love to have you all here, but for your loved ones, your community and your safety is best that we stay apart. The children who are coming into school are doing so, so that their parents can go out to work to support the country at this difficult time. Their parents may be working in hospitals with the sick, delivering food to the supermarket so we can all eat, or like me, coming into school to make sure the children of those adults have a safe place to be whilst they go to work. Even though you are at home, we are still thinking of you. We are also working on a few ideas to help you feel closer to us and more connected, so we will let you know more when they’re finalised.
Below is the timetable you could follow if you wish to. You do NOT have to stick to this timetable! I just wanted to provide structure if required. Feel free to create your own learning timetable as best suites your family’s needs, for example, you may only do one or two lessons a day, or you may be working on a project over a few hours or days. There is no requirement to use this at all! Remember you also have the learning packs which were sent home last week,feel free to dip in and out of this as you choose, you can work from it in any order.
The Spring Overview document is the best one for suggestions for other areas of the curriculum, but again do not feel limited – there are so many amazing projects you could do. I will be adding to ideas for projects to the website as time goes on and as more resources become available – this is a new area for all of us and we are all in this together.
Many thanks for your on-going support, remember that we are missing you, stay safe and well and at home!
Looking forward to your emails!
Lots of kindness,
Miss Wales and Mr Robson
Distance learning tasks for week of 23.03.20
Possible science project - Animals including Humans
Miss Wales, Mr Robson and the Year 3 team would like to welcome you to this page.
To stay healthy in the coming weeks, keep working on school work to keep your skills ticking over, and hopefully learn new things, I would suggest organising your day or week in advance. Make sure you get up at a good time (before 9am!), get dressed, eat breakfast, complete any chores/jobs expected of you and SMILE! 😁
Arrange your day carefully, making sure you read for 25 minutes a day (at least) 📚, practise your cursive handwriting🖋, times tables ✖➗, spellings 🔤and get outside/be active 🏃♀️🚶♂️ (walking the dog, Daily Mile, GoNoodle, kids' HIIT workouts on YouTube, etc). I will set English 💜 and Maths 💛 tasks, which you can access here or via email and other bits and pieces will be available too. I will be on the end of my email if you have any questions for me.
Try not to be anxious about everything going on in the world 💞- maybe start a journal 🗓 where you can jot down or draw positive things from your days at home? Make sure you speak 💬 to your family and friends every day and talk about anything that's worrying you...a problem shared becomes less of a problem!
Take this time to do things you don't often have time or energy for: cooking 👩🍳👨🍳, playing board games 🎲 or card games ♦♥♣♠, practising a musical instrument 🎶, gardening 🌼, learning a new craft 🧵, writing letters or postcards to family members 📝, drawing pictures for people 🎨, learning to tell the time 🕞...the list is endless!
Mrs F, Mrs A, Mrs F, Mr R, Mrs S, Mrs B and I will be thinking about you all every day and can't wait for things to get back to normal, where I'm moaning at you to use your working indoor voice or to underline DUMTUMS and use a ruler. 😁😎😉🥰
Lots of love, Miss Wales 🤗🤗🤗🤗
