Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

A big, smiley smiley, "hello!" from all of the Year 3 team! We hope all of the learning tasks are going well at home. If you have any questions about work whilst the school is closed, please email year3@nyewood-jun.w-sussex.sch.uk and Miss Conrad will be in touch to answer your question.


HAPPY EASTER HOLIDAYS! 

Wishing you all a Happy Easter! It feels a little strange for us too because we are still coming in to school to teach the children that we have here! However, it is important over the next couple of weeks that you do try and have a little rest and spend some time with your families to celebrate Easter.

 

We have also uploaded some Easter activities for you just in case you would like to complete them!

 

Thank you so much to those of you that have been sending in your lovely work!

 

Remember, we love seeing photos of everything you've been up to so please do email us pictures of your work, it puts a smile on our faces!

Easter Holiday activities

Week 2 Learning

 

Below you will find the learning tasks for Week 2. These involve a daily English and Maths task, a Roman topic activity that could be completed over a few days because it involves some building! There are also some Science activities that we hope you have fun with.

This week we would live you to write a persuasive leaflet inviting people to Fishbourne Roman palace. You also have a daily Maths investigation and some foundation curriculum lessons.

Spelling

 

Spellings are very important to us and we have been working very hard on them at school by introducing a new system. This award-winning website have also allowed free access to their app during this time. We would greatly appreciate some feedback with this as it could be an app that we have as a school in the future.

Postive Postcards

 

If you have some spare time, have a go at creating a positive postcard to post to somebody. Perhaps a family member that is having to stay indoors? Or an elderly neighbour that might need some help with their groceries? You could write them a nice message, write a joke or create a crossword or wordsearch for them to complete. We'd love to see some of them so feel free to send a picture of them to the above email address.
