‘Letting our light shine as we live, love and learn, together with Jesus’

Year 3 2019-20

Hello Year 3

Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

Luke 6:37

Good morning our lovely Year 3 class, we hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. We have been loving all your emails allowing us to see what you have been up to with your lovely families and the great work you have been completing. Please keep those coming as it is so nice to see what you have all been doing and it is a great way for us to keep in touch. year3cv@trinity.lancs.sch.uk 

Over the next week or two, Miss Earle and I will be ringing you at home to check in with you, have a chat and see how you have been getting on. We are so excited to make these phone calls as we really are missing you now.

I have also added a few ‘extra’ learning ideas in for this week, I just want to remind you these are choice activities if you would like a further challenge. You will see the word (extra) in brackets. Also, check out the link in the ‘fantastic activities’ section for an art competition I thought some of you might like to enter, this is through RE Today and is the Spirited Arts Competition – it looks FAB!

If the sun is shining again this week, I would love it if you could draw me a sketch in your books of something you can see outside. This could be in your garden or from your window, it could be a flower or a building – anything at all and try to remember those sketching and shading techniques from our art lessons. We are loving seeing all your hard work. Keep it up Year 3. You are ALL amazing and we miss you so much. Remember – DO NOT WORRY if there is something you find tricky; you can always email us. Take care, stay safe, remember to have fun and keep washing your hands. Also, keep your eyes peeled for a video I have recorded to tell you all about my first week at home. This will be on our Year 3 page sometime this week.

Please join Boris the robot for his daily broadcast, there are also some lovely optional, extra activities for you to complete:

Lots of love to you and your families,

Mrs Yeulett and Miss Earle xx
