Please have a read of this week's newsletter and try to do as much as you can. You know the drill- Go to our class page and click the Summer Term folder to find resources for this week.

 

There's a Game Design competition, book reviews, forest stories, fractions, making a Jar of Hope, Cosmic adventures and Science experiments.

 

I can't wait to hear from you and see your wonderful work this week. Send it to the usual email address:

P.S. This week, I'm going to start adding your Oxford Owl Book recommendations on our class page, so your friends can enjoy the books too. Read more about it here: https://www.englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk/summer-2-week-1-0106-0506/ smiley

Hello Year 3 smiley

 

Yay, Friday is here! I hope you are all well, staying safe and are having a good week. I have been in school today with Miss Jeffrey and Mrs Turner and it was so windy today we all decided to make kites and test them outside. There were a few times we had to race after escaping kites before they landed in the trees and bushes. It was a lot of fun!

 

Next week is half term, so I won't be uploading any new home learning. You've been working really hard and trying your best, so have a break and enjoy a week off!

 

Stay safe, 

Love Mrs Sworeń

Hello everyone,

 

I hope you've all had a good weekend. I have been trying out lots of new recipes and playing board games. I managed to find my mini pool table hidden in a cupboard and it turns out I'm still quite good at it. It was lots of fun! Which games do you enjoy playing?

 

Send me your work and messages to:

EMyear3@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

 

Please look at this week's Year 3 newsletter for home learning activities. We are focusing on fractions, shoe stories, building a paddle boat, yoga, caring for the earth and going on virtual adventures. Have fun and please try to do at least two English and Maths activities a week. It will help you keep your brain active during the lockdown. 

 

Missing you all so much.

Stay safe,

Love Mrs Sworeń

Nĭ Hăo Year 3!

 

I hope you all had a lovely long weekend and enjoyed the VE Day celebrations at home. As usual, I've uploaded this week's newsletter in our Summer Term folder. It's already week 4! We've got Mandarin, English, History, R.E. and SPAG activities to try. Maths is a little bit different this week, so please read the newsletter to find out what to do.

 

Well done to everyone who is staying safe at home, helping your family, making others smile and are trying their very best with their home learning. I know it's not easy but you are doing really well. You know who you are! smiley 

I miss you all lots and I really hope I hear from even more children this week. 

 

Keep sending me photos of your work to: EMyear3@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

 

Stay safe and keep smiling,

Love Mrs Sworeń

Good morning all!

 

Today is the 75th Anniversary of VE day or 'Victory in Europe Day'. VE Day was on the 8th of May, 1945 and marked the end of the fighting in Europe during World War Two. People were extremely happy and there were huge celebrations and street parties. Today we can remember the bravery and sacrifice of the people in the war.

 

Please try Mrs Howarth's challenge today and write a note of thanks for all those who made sacrifices 75 years ago.

I hope you enjoy your own VE Day celebrations safely at home.

Stay safe and enjoy the weekend,

Mrs Sworen

 

P.s. Well done to all those working hard this week and have sent me work. I hope to hear from more of you next week. EMyear3@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

A very good morning to you all!

I just wanted to say... WOW ...and WOW again Year 3! Well done to everyone who is sending me photographs of your work, doing work online and emailing me about things you have been up to. There's been nature photos, daily walk photos, delicious baking, incredible PowerPoints, interesting fact files, information booklets, fraction work... the list goes on! I have now received over 100 photos from you all! There are so many photos, I've had to make a new Home Learning Gallery on our class page! Also check out our new Videos and Presentations folder underneath the galleries.

 

Keep the photos coming and if you need any help with work please email me: EMyear3@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

 

Remember to look after yourselves and do what is best for you. I am not expecting you to be doing hours of work every day, just do what you can. The most important thing is to be happy and if that means playing with a jigsaw or watching a film today, then do that! smiley

 

Love Mrs Sworeń

 

P.S. I've really enjoyed all your nature photos, so here is a squirrel that visited my garden this weekend. (Yes, my grass is super long!! I finally mowed it on Sunday. I don't think the squirrel will be too happy as I found lots of nuts he had hidden in the grass.)

Hello Year 3!

 

I hope you have all had a good week. Well done to everyone who has sent in photographs of what they have been up to. It is lovely to see you learning all about plants and enjoying nature. I'm pleased to see more of you are doing online work too!

 

I have been in school this week and we got all creative with crafts! As it was National Children's Gardening Week, we decided to create an indoor garden because it was raining on our lovely outdoor school garden. This way we now have a garden indoors and outdoors. smiley

 

 

Here is a picture of it from Tuesday with pompom, felt and tissue paper flowers and egg box bushes. I forgot to take a picture of it yesterday. Oops! It now has a tree, mosaic butterflies, swirly snails and amazing handmade painted bird houses. 

 

Year 3's Weekly Challenge is...

 

make your very own dance to your favourite song.

Try to get your family to join it too!

 

Stay safe and enjoy the weekend.

 

I look forward to hearing from you all,

Love Mrs Sworeń smiley

Morning everyone!

Hope you've had a lovely weekend. I've really enjoyed reading all your emails. There's been some amazing learning, lots of fun and some incredible achievements. Check out our home learning gallery.

 

This week we've got activities about eggs, gardening and a whole host of other things! See Year 3's weekly newsletter and resources in the Summer Term Home Learning folder on our class page.

Wednesday 22nd April, 2020.

 

Good morning  and happy Earth Day Year 3!

What a lovely sunny day it is today! 

 

Year 3's Weekly Challenge is ... 

Make up your own game and play it with your family!

 

  1. First, think of a new game and what materials you might need.
  2. Next, make the game. You could get someone to help you with this part or do it by yourself.
  3. Then, think of the new rules for the game. It might be good to write the instructions down.
  4. After that, make sure to explain the rules to all the players.
  5. Finally, have fun playing it!smiley

Please send me a photo or a description of your game to:

EMyear3@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

 

It can be any type of game that you can imagine. 

Here are some ideas of what you could do:

  • A new board game like Snakes and Ladders, Monopoly, Scrabble or Ludo but with new rules or characters;
  • A card game like top trumps;
  • A guessing game or a quiz;
  • A dancing game;
  • An obstacle course game using random objects; (just make sure it's safe!)
  • A catching game with wacky new rules.
  • Maybe you could make a bowling game out of plastic bottles and a ball!

 

I can't wait to see the new games you come up with!

Stay safe and enjoy the sunshine,

Love Mrs Sworeń

Good morning Year 3,

I can't believe it's the Summer term already! I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday and are ready for a new week of home learning. I've altered our class page a little bit and you may have noticed we now have a Summer Term folder. In the folder you will find a weekly home learning newsletter, Maths and English resources and activity ideas for other subjects. Please don't feel like you have to complete everything. If you try 3 pieces of English and Maths this week that would be fantastic! Just do what you can and remember to have fun with your family too! 

 

Send photos of your wonderful work to: EMyear3@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

I can't wait to see your super work and see what you have been up to.

 

Remember I am just an email away if you need any help or want to say hello,

Love Mrs Sworeń smiley

P.S. Check back here on Wednesday to see Year 3's Weekly Challenge!

Good morning everyone smiley,

 

I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend. Thank you to everyone who sent me photographs. It looks like you are having lots of fun!

I've enjoyed crocheting in the sunshine and playing with my cats. They are really good at playing fetch with their favourite toys. 

 

Missing you all lots!

Stay safe and have fun,

Love Mrs Sworeń

Good afternoon Year 3 smiley,

 

I hope you've had a lovely week. Well done to everyone who has been working hard online and completing their home learning packs. Have most of you completed the packs? Email me if you get stuck. I have extended the deadline for this week's online work for those of you who haven't managed to do it yet. I look forward to seeing your work next week. 

 

Well done to Emma, Arwa, Elliot, John, Charlie, Aaron, Ella, Kailen, William, Anas, Ava, Francisca and Waqas who have all completed work online this week. 

 

Over the past few days, I have been teaching children and teachers how to crochet. I thought it would be nice for you to learn something new too, so...

 Mrs Sworen's Weekly Challenge  is to learn a new skill!

 

The possibilities are endless! It might be a new language, painting, creative writing, building structures using household materials or Lego, crochet, knitting, gardening, playing an

instrument, you could even make and direct a short film.

 

Please let me know what skill you are learning by emailing me at:

EMyear3@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

 

Details of next week's online work is below. Please try to complete as much as you can. I am creating a new area on our class page for all the amazing work you are sending me. Make sure you check back soon to see Year 3's super work!

 

Stay safe and have a lovely weekend,

Love Mrs Sworeń smiley

Monday 30th March, 2020.

Good afternoon Year 3,

 

I hope you had a lovely, relaxing weekend. On Saturday at 8.30pm, the Sworeń household took part in Earth Hour. We turned off all our lights and electronics, lit candles in the garden, thanked God for our wonderful world and played board games indoors (it was a bit too chilly to be in our little garden!). Did you take part too? For those of you who haven’t heard of it, it’s an annual event where everyone turns their lights and electronics off for one hour to show how much they care for our amazing planet and want to look after it. Buckingham Palace and Edinburgh Castle even took part! Click here to find out more about it: https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/science/nature/lights-out-earth-hour-wwf/

 

Don’t worry if you missed it, there are some amazing craft projects (see links below) you could make to celebrate the wonderful world God has created for us. There are instructions for a polar bear lantern, a cardboard penguin and a heart animal! You could even create your own animal project with materials you have at home such as cardboard rolls, newspaper and cereal boxes. I’d love to see your creations. Remember you can send me photos of them to: EMyear3@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

 

Love Mrs Sworeń smiley

Friday 27th March, 2020.

 

Good afternoon Year 3,

 

It's Friday! I hope you and your family are safe and well staying indoors. I have been working at home all day which has been very strange; I miss our classroom and your smiling faces. At least we have been able to enjoy the sun shining through our windows.

I have set some online activities for you all to do over the next week alongside your home learning packs. There's more information about it below. I'll be updating online home learning activities every Friday and I will provide feedback through these websites. 

 

Mrs Howarth has set up a special email address for us, so you can send me work, little messages or even a photo of what you have been up to.

 

Our class email address is: EMyear3@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

 

Stay safe and enjoy spending time together indoors. smiley

Wishing you all a lovely weekend, 

Love Mrs Sworeń


Below is some information about the online activities I've set up for you to do over the next week (27/03/20-03/04/20).

 

Reading- Please read every day just as you normally do. We have a brand new book to read on PurpleMash called The Settlers. It’s all about the Stone Age and I’ve set a few reading activities about Chapter 1 of The Settlers for you to do over the next week. Click on the 2Do tab on PurpleMash to find them.

 

TTRS- Please go on Studio for 3-5minutes each day to work towards improving your Rockstar status. Remember you can send battle challenges to each other. I have really enjoyed the Rockslams some of you have already sent me!  Log in to TTRS to find this week’s challenge from me.

 

MyMaths -Homework for this week is on equivalent fractions and calculating fractions.There are a number of children who have overdue MyMaths homework. Can you please make sure your homework is up to date. Thank you.

On PurpleMash there are some great fraction games to play. I've set one as a 2Do for you to try.

 

Spellings- Instead of your usual Friday spelling test, there will be a weekly spelling quiz on PurpleMash.  I thought it would be a good idea to look at previous spellings to begin with, so can you please look over your spellings from Week 3 this term ready for the Quiz next Friday (03/04/20). It is already set as a 2Do if you want to try it sooner than Friday.

Group 1- prefix re-

Group 2- ue and ew vowel digraphs.

 

Coding- Log into Scratch to try out the different coding features. Have a play around with it and see what you think. I will be adding different tasks to try on Scratch soon.

 

Virtual Adventures! -I’ve added a new virtual adventures folder on our home learning page. There are lots of places to explore. I have loved watching the animals at various zoos today. 

 

 

Monday 23rd March, 2020.

 

Hello Year 3,

 

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend staying safe and spending time with your families.

School has been very quiet today; I have missed you all so much but I am glad you are all staying safe at home. Please know that I am thinking of you and that I am here for every single one of you. I am very proud of you and proud to be your class teacher.smiley

 

Keep checking back here for updates, as I will set work on PurpleMash, Scratch, TTRS and MyMaths soon! In the meantime, enjoy working through your home learning packs and reading with your families.

 

Love Mrs Sworeń

 

P.S. Freddy the Fox wanted me to tell you he is really enjoying our class novel and hopes you are enjoying your books too!
