This term in Lagoon Class...
Year 3 Summer 2 2021 – this final half term’s learning
I am so proud of Lagoon class and their resilience in what has been a challenging year! They have worked tremendously hard in their learning and are making fantastic progress across all subjects. They should feel really proud of what they are achieving every day.
This half term, we are kick starting our science-based topic about plants and grow in our topic ‘Let’s Plant it!’. This week, we will be having our stunning start, which is designing and then building a model garden, so look out for requests to bring in yoghurt pots, leaves, stones and gravel! Over the next few weeks, we are hoping to get out and about in the open air as much as possible looking at plants, but also looking for inspiration for art and poetry in a few weeks when we have our whole school arts week. Of course before then, next Thursday 24th June, we will of have another day outside as we celebrate our school sports day, we are only sorry that Covid restrictions mean parents are not able to attend this year.
Since we will not be having a school trip as such this term, we are hoping to have a film and entertainment evening on Friday 16th July. This will give the children the chance to stay in school for activities, pizza and a film until around 9.00pm. So please keep this date free in your diaries if at all possible. We hope to pass on more information about this in the next 7 days.
Just to kindly remind you that PE is still on Thursdays with Mr Haywood; so please continue to send your children to school in their PE kit every Thursday.
Home-learning will be uploaded to Teams on a weekly basis and will alternate between maths learning and literacy. Please aim to submit the completed learning on Teams (under the assignments tab) or by email. At this stage, it is best to avoid physically returning completed learning to school. I would ask that all children continue to read each evening for a minimum of 15 minutes or listen to an audio book to build their reading stamina and encourage reading for pleasure.
Finally, if you do have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me and I will come back to you. You can of course continue to catch me at the gate in the mornings or after school. If I am not at the gate for any reason, you can always pass a message through the Year 3 team: Ms W, Mrs McNeil and Mrs Foster.
