Home learning

Please keep in touch!

If you'd like to get in touch for a chat or to share what you've been up to, email the school (admin@st-marys-ipswich.suffolk.sch.uk) - I'll see everything you send in!

Please make sure any images you send are .jpg files, or they can't be seen! 

Summer term - Week Beginning 6th July 

 

Joke of the week: Why did the mushroom go to the party? Because he was a fungi!

 

Dear Year 3,

 

Here's another week of home learning! You've all been doing so well and working so hard - I'm very proud of everyone. I'm really looking forward to seeing some of you on the Zoom call on Friday - I hope most of you are able to make it and share something with the class. It'll be good to see you before the end of the school year.

 

The activities for the week are listed below. Remember, you can use these activities alongside the resources that are available on BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy. For those of you that don't have a printer at home, these resources are great because they are mostly interactive. I hope some of you have been able to get to a library to get some new reading books - I'll be stocking up ready for the summer holidays! 

 

Also, those of you at home can join in on our in-school 'sports afternoon'! We are live-streaming the event on the school's Facebook page. 

 

As always, if you need any support with anything, please get in touch.

 

Stay safe and be kind to your families.

Mr Cook

 

P.S. The monsters, Louie and Belle, have been very brave, exploring the house. Here they are after scaling a huge mountain (the stairs)!

Joke of the week: Why did the skeleton go to the party alone? They had no body to go with!

 

Dear Year 3,

 

Welcome to another week of home learning. It's been fantastic to speak to some of those of you at home over the phone this week. I've sent a message on Parentmail about a Zoom call that I've scheduled for a few weeks time - I'm looking forward to seeing those of you who can make it, then! 

 

The activities for this week are posted below -  remember that you can use these activities or the ones that are available on BBC Bitesize or Oak National Academy. I'm really excited that libraries will be opening up on the 4th of July, so those of you who are running low on reading books will have a chance to get some new stories to enjoy! 

 

As always, if you need any support with anything, please get in touch.

 

Stay safe and be kind to your families.

Mr Cook

 

P.S. The monsters, Louie and Belle, have calmed down a little and are acting a bit less like monsters now (thank goodness!). Here they are posing for you...

Summer term - Week Beginning 22nd June 

 

Joke of the week: I’ve been bored recently, so I decided to take up fencing. My neighbours keep demanding that I put it back.

 

Dear Year 3,

 

Another week of home learning is here! I hope you're all keeping safe, well and happy. I am missing you all very much. It's been really nice to speak to some of you over the phone - I'll be calling everyone who isn't in school, this week. I'm still working with my Year 6 'bubble' - I'm getting used to it, but it's still not quite the same as being with my lovely Year 3 class. 

 

The activities for the week are listed below - well done for working hard and getting lots of great work done. If you want a challenge, you could always look on BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy. They have some different lessons that are really great. I have also updated the suggested timetable for the week, to give you some other ideas of what you could do each day.

 

As always, if you need any support with anything, please get in touch.

 

Stay safe and be kind to your families.

Mr Cook

 

P.S. Calling them 'Monster 1' and 'Monster 2' was getting confusing, so we have decided to call the monsters 'Belle' (left) and 'Louie' (right). Here's the monsters after chasing a pesky toy mouse...

Summer term - Week Beginning 15th June 

 

Joke of the week: I've become so good at sleeping - I can do it with my eyes closed!

 

Dear Year 3,

 

Welcome back for another week of home learning. I hope you're all doing well and keeping safe. I've been in school with my new Year 6 'bubble' this week. It's very strange to be in school, in a different classroom, and not be teaching my lovely Year 3 class. I'm missing you all very much and I'm looking forward to seeing you all again, whenever that might be. 

 

The activities for the week are listed below. Well done for working so hard at home for your adults. Remember that if you're finding it difficult to stay motivated, start with a one or two activities. Take lots of breaks. If you miss out an activity, that's okay! Do as much as you can. All of your hard work will really show when you're back at school.

 

As always, if you need any support with anything, please get in touch.

 

Stay safe and be kind to your families.

Mr Cook

 

P.S. I thought you all might like to see the little monsters that have invaded my home!!

Summer term - Week 7 

 

Joke of the week: They told me to stop acting like a flamingo, so I had to put my foot down.

 

Dear Year 3,

 

Another week of home learning is here - I hope you're all keeping safe, well and happy. I am missing you all very much. It has been very strange being back in school and teaching a different set of children. 

 

All of your activities for this week are listed below. Remember that these are optional and if you would rather use different resources (BBC Bitesize, Oak National Academy etc.) that is absolutely fine. Just remember to get some exercise and read as much as you can!

 

Please do get in touch via email if you need anything.

 

Stay safe and be kind to your families.

Mr Cook

Summer term - Week 6 

 

Joke of the week: What do you call a dog that can do magic? A Labracadabrador.

 

Dear Year 3,

 

I hope you enjoyed the half term break and managed to get outside for some of the lovely weather. This week's home learning activities are supplied below. I have also added a suggested timetable.

 

Remember that these activities are optional and you may choose to use whatever resources you feel is best. Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize are supplying excellent resources that you may wish to use instead. 

 

As you may know, school is opening more widely on the 3rd of June, for pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. From this week onwards, I will be in school full time, so will not be available via email until Friday afternoons. Thank you for your understanding in what is a very challenging time. Please do keep sending in emails - if you need support somebody will get in touch with you ASAP. 

 

Stay safe and be kind to your families.

Mr Cook

Questions you can use when reading with your child at home.

Learning French in Year 3

This term we will be learning how to greet one another, say our name, age and where we live. The children will also learn to recognise colours and the objects around them in class. They will be able to say and write phrases and sentences. We will also be studying and discussing Europe and our own diverse community. The children will assess one another and themselves using the 'Can do statements' from the Languages Ladder.
