Weekly message and 2dos update

Week beginning Monday 13th July

Well done for continuing to work hard on your home learning activities. It's the final week before the Summer holidays official begin, so Mrs Sweeney and I have set a few end of year activities on Purple Mash for you to have a go at.


Exciting news! We have scheduled a Year 3 Zoom call!


Hello to all our lovely children who we miss very much!  School has not been the same without us all being together, so we would LOVE to get together on a ‘Zoom’ call next week to see all your smiling faces. If you would like to join in with our call, be ready to ZOOOOOM at 10am, next Wednesday 15th July, and make sure there is an adult there with you.

If you don’t already have ‘Zoom’, you will need to download the app and create an account. We will send the Meeting ID and password out via text the night before (this must not be shared with anyone for safeguarding reasons). If you would like to show the class something that you have been doing or have made during lockdown that would be great too!


We can’t wait to 'see you’ next week.

Love from Mrs Mitchell and Mrs Mitchell

Week beginning Monday 6th July

A big hi from Mrs Sweeney and I! 

Thank you for your continued hard work everyone! Mrs Sweeney and I are currently giving everyone a phone call to say hello. It's been lovely to hear your voices. If we haven't spoke to you yet, we look forward to catching up soon.

Keep looking after yourself and your families. Remember there is Maths and Literacy on our class page and plenty of activities on Purple Mash. 


Week beginning Monday 29th June

A big hi from me and Mrs Sweeney!

    Have you been inspired by Glastonbury this weekend?

We've had so much music on in our house this weekend. I forgot how much music makes you feel better. Mr Mitchell and I are normally at Glastonbury - and we relived joyful memories and watched with hope for a future full of fun, music, family and friends.

The Arts (music/drama/art) are a way of expressing how we feel.Thank you for all the wonderful art pictures on Purple Mash. Why dont you have a go this week at creating your own music or art or poetry - or even writing and performing a play? Express yourself!

Week beginning Monday 22nd June

Mrs Sweeney and I send you love and hugs. We hope you are all well and safe.

Thank you for your continued hard work on Purple Mash. There's lots of new activities for you to do this week.

We'd love to hear what you've been up to, so share your news with the class on our blog. 

I've just bought a running buggy so I can take Alexander with me when I go running. It's really fun - but hard work on the hills!

Take care and stay safe. We are looking forward to the sunshine coming this week! smiley



Week beginning Monday 15th June

Hi Year 3,

Mrs Sweeney and I send you are love and prayers. We are both well and busy - although we miss you very much. Mrs Sweeney has been celebrating a special birthday today, so I am glad the sun was shining for her! smiley

Thank you for your continued hard work at home - and for looking after everyone in your families. I hope you've been able to go for some socially distanced walks or garden meet-ups with friends and family. I know it's really helped us to be able to do that. 

There's plenty of new work on Purple Mash, plus a few new bits in our topic area, as well as in our Maths and Literacy folders. Try and read regularly and practise your times tables as often as you can.

But most importantly, look after yourselves and your families, be kind, pray for those in need and appreciate the beauty all around us. 

Week Beginning Monday 8th June

Hi Year 3! We hope you are all well and safe. Mrs Sweeney and I are both well. Thank you for your continued hard work on Purple Mash and your blog posts - it's great to hear what you are up to.

What a shame about all the rain this weekend! We have been thinking about you this weekend, on what should have been your First Holy Communion. Sending you all love and prayers.  Let's hope we get a sunny day when we do come together to celebrate.

Week beginning Monday 1st June

Hi Year 3! I hope you and your families are well. Hasn't the sunshine been glorious?!

Mrs Sweeney and I are looking forward to seeing more children back in school tomorrow. We are sorry that Year 3 cannot come back into school yet.

We are especially thinking of you all this week, as this would have been the week leading up to your First Holy Communion. We look forward greatly to when we can celebrate the Sacrament of the Eucharist with you. 

There is new learning on Purple Mash, Maths, Literacy and in our Summer Topic area.

Mrs Sweeney and I hope that you are able to enjoy some peaceful family time, and have a bit of fun too! Let's hope the sunshine comes out!

Week beginning Monday 4th May

Hi Year 3! I can’t believe we are in May already! I hope you are all well and safe. I am sure there are times where you get fed up, bored or lonely at home. It’s absolutely ok to have moments like this. Keep talking with your family and share with them how you are feeling. Remember you can chat to Mrs Sweeney and I and the rest of the class on our class blog. Well done for being so brave.


On Friday it is a Bank Holiday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Why don’t you have a go at finding out a bit about WWII and VE Day? There are a few activities you can do on Purple Mash too.

Here is a pic of our Purple Mash activities this week, so if you can’t get onto Purple Mash, you’ve got some ideas. Don’t forget there are ideas linked to our topic on our webpage too.


Week beginning Monday 20th April


Hi Year 3! We hope you are all well and safe and enjoyed celebrating Easter with your families. Has anyone got any Easter chocolate left?

As we are now in the Summer Term, have a look at our research questions under 'Summer Topic' and start exploring the Mediterranean! One of our questions is all about Picasso. You might want to recreate some of his famous artwork or try your own pictures using his style. There's a purple mash activity to do on Picasso. One of our additional Purple Mash activities for the next few weeks is a leaflet about Rome. Remember you can do this on powerpoint or on paper if you would prefer.
