Welcome to Mrs Baron's Year 3 class page.

 On Wellbeing Wednesdays there will be a short meeting in Classes at 9.15 to explain the self-learning activities and PE for that day. The PE activity will be posted further down this page.

Please also read on Bug Club or your own book for a minimum of 15 minutes, and at least 15 minutes on TT Rock Stars each day. Login details are in your Reading Record.  Practise your spellings each day for 10 minutes.  When we are in school, we use the track for our daily mile.  Instead, I'd like you to complete the 21 minute challenge each day.  Please see below for more details.  

Go to www. zoom.us/join and enter the Meeting ID and password. A timetable with Meeting IDs and passwords for Mr Morris's and Mrs Baron's meetings has been sent out by email. If you have not received this, please email y3@stacksteads.lancs.sch.uk with the name of your child.

Google Classroom

Resources will be uploaded to Google Classroom.

  • Each day, please log in at www.classroom.google.com
  • Login details and passwords are in the front of each child's reading record.
  • The username will be in this format: 17(firstname)(initial of surname)@stacksteads.lancs.sch.uk
  • For example if your child is named John Smith, the username will be 17johns@stacksteads.lancs.sch.uk
  • The children have all logged into their account in school, so should hopefully be able to do it at home.

PE

Follow the instructions on the video below at home. Then try and get an hour of exercise in the fresh air if you can.

Daily 21 Minute Challenge

Instead of the daily mile, take on the 21 Minute Challenge.  It features a list of activities that you can choose from and a route of a local family walk.  The first week sets off from Haslingden.  There's a helpful log that you can record our activities on.  Please see the letter from Rossendale Leisure Trust below, along with the log sheet and activities sheet.  The activity sheet will be updated each week with new ideas and a different walk.  I hope that you enjoy these.  Let me know how you get on.

Reading - November 2020

Keep reading everybody!  Remember there are lots of books to read on Bug Club as well as your school reading book.  If you are enjoying one of your own books, don't forget to log it in your reading diary too.  

 

TT Rockstars and Maths Week

Just a quick reminder - try to play TT Rockstars as many times as you can this week.  If you would like to challenge a friend, use the Rockslam option and choose your opponent.  Great fun!

It's almost the end of the first half-term!  We have been very busy.  Children know how to greet people in Spanish and tell someone how they are feeling.  In maths, we know lots about fractions and are learning to write sentences with subordinate clauses at the beginning.  To complete our history work, we have written some fabulous reports about life in the Stone Age.  

During the holidays, please make sure that you read for 10 minutes every day.  There are lots of books and activities to try on Bug Club.  Log in details are in your reading records and you can click the link below to log in.

SPELLINGS WILL BE GIVEN OUT ON MONDAY - THERE WILL BE A SHORT TEST EACH FRIDAY.  PLEASE RETURN SPELLING SHEETS EACH FRIDAY.

Hello everyone,

It's the first half term of a brand new school year.  I have lots of activities for you to try and I can't wait to see you all.   I've included some details to help you get used to being in Year 3 and being in Key Stage 2!  

PE is on Wednesdays starting from 9th September so please come to school in your PE kit each Wednesday.  

Please leave any bags in the Year 3 cloakroom and bring only your reading book and reading diary into the classroom.

Reading books will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays.  

I have planned some fun activities for your return to school - no long division this week! 

For the rest of the term we will be learning about FABLES and REPORTS in Literacy, money in NUMERACY and in history we will be looking way back to the STONE AGE.  Science will explore ANIMALS INCLUDING HUMANS and PLANTS.  In MUSIC we will appraise songs and play glockenspiels.  Computing will teach us how to stay safe online and we will be using MAPS AND MAP SYMBOLS as part of our Geography learning.

I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 1st September.  (Mr Morris' class do not return until Wednesday).

Mrs Baron :-)
