Year 3 Castleshaw Trip

Year 3 loved learning all about rivers on their recent trip to Castleshaw.

After donning their waterproofs, they had great fun wading through a stream to find the source of the river!

 

 

Year 3 Tomb Raiders

As part of our Ancient Egyptian topic, Year 3  had lots of fun learning about the archaeologist Howard Cater and what he discovered in Tutankhamun’s tomb.

Working in teams,  each archaeologist took turns to explore the tomb and observe the many wondrous artefacts.  After taking in as much detail as possible,  in a limited time due to the build up of poisonous gasses over thousands of years,  they described their finds to their team members and then sketched these in their log books.

Following this, we took a virtual tour of a Tutankhamun exhibition to see the artefacts in real life.

St Mary’s Got Talent

A big shout-out to Annie Walker in Year 3 who has recently completed a chin up challenge for her gymnastics club. Annie completed 1000 chin ups and raised an incredible £540 pounds!

Well done Annie, we are super proud of you!

Welcome Back Year 3

Hello Year 3

We just wanted to say a huge well done on all the hard work done at home and in school over the past weeks. We are incredibly proud of your resilience and can’t wait for us all to be back together again in the classroom. 😃

On Monday, please remember to come in your outdoor PE kits and bring your book bags, with reading records and any home reading books to be changed.
Please see the letter that was sent out from the school office regarding the full reopening of school. This also includes information about appropriate PE kit.

Your spellings for this week are Group 8.
These are available HERE and on Seesaw and also on the class page of the website. Your spelling test will be on Thursday as usual.

Any more guesses for the masked reader can be posted on Seesaw and we will reveal the answers on Monday.

Please bring in any completed 24 Hours of Reading posters and keep going with the ’24 Hours of Reading in 14 Days’ challenge. Bring in your sheet once you have completed the challenge.

Also, please bring in your St Mary’s Family jigsaw pieces that you made a few weeks ago. These will be added to the display in the hall.

Have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you all!

Mrs Thomas and Mrs Whitmore. 😃

Screen-Free Friday Monster Pizzas

For one of our screen-free afternoon tasks, we have had lots of fun making Monster Pizzas!

We have worked hard writing instructions on how to make a Monster Pizza, and so couldn’t wait to have a go using some of the rather horrid and unusual ingredients!

Have a look at the monstrously good results.

Emotional health and mental well-being…

Hello everyone.

I just want to point you in the direction of a new set of resources on our ‘Learning’ tab dropdown on the website.

If you click on it, you will find a range of resources and documents that contain some useful advice: especially if your children are struggling somewhat during the lockdown.

Please take a moment to have a look at the resources – particularly the information on World Mental Health Awareness Day.

Don’t forget, if we can help – we will do our best. There is usually someone here at school you can talk to.

Best wishes to you all on behalf of all the staff here at St Mary’s.

Mr Day
