Good afternoon everyone!

Hope you are all making the most of this gorgeous weather; sadly I don't think it's going to last much longer!!

Just a quick note about P.E.

Many apologies if I've confused you all about our P.E. days; we are now having P.E. on a Wednesday and Thursday. I promise it won't be changing again!

We have been recapping lots of maths this week and have been working on our times tables. I have asked the children to practice their 5 times tables this week so that they are much more confident when asked them at random. We will work on a different one each week and have a mini quiz on a Friday.

Thanks so much for your support,

Mrs Matthews

Good evening everyone!

We had a fabulous first week in Year 3; the children have all settled in beautifully and are an absolutely wonderful team. I'm really looking forwards to spending the year with them!

We have had lots of fun and have spent so much time learning practically and outdoors! wet hought we should make the most of our last few weeks of sunshine!! After a little practise on the grass last week, we have spend this afternoon in the forest creating fabulous pieces of art using lots of natural resources. The children have had a great time working together to create amazing masterpieces! We've worked outdoors on our maths once again too; ordering numbers, identifying odd and even numbers and recapping our place value.

Here is just a sample of images showing the work the children have been doing today..

Hope you have enjoyed sharing some of our photos; we will keep posting!!

Hope you're enjoying the sunshine!

See you soon,

Mrs Matthews

Our first day! 8.9.20

admin on: Class 3

Good evening everyone!

I just thought I'd let you know what a wonderful day we have all had in Year 3 today. The children have all been absolutely amazing; you would never have guessed they hadn't been in school for 6 months; complete superstars! We are definitely going to have a brilliant year; let's hope a full one this year too!

As the weather has been kind to us today we have made the most of the outdoors today and have had great fun creating natural sculptures outdoors. I have been amazed by the wonderful creativity the children have demonstrated. I think we have a class of artists this year!

We are currently in the process of creating a special display together in Year 3; it will be a celebration of all members of our team. The children have already prepared decorative name labels and drawn lovely pictures of themselves. It would be great to also display a photo of each of them too. If you possibly could, I would be really grateful if you would send me a photograph of your child via email and I will display it alongside their drawing and name label.

We are also going to be creating special memory/positivity jars in class too; please could you send in a glass jar (eg jam jar or coffee jar) so that your child can decorate it and add lots of lovely positive comments or memories.

Finally, please could I confirm that P.E. will be on a Tuesday and Thursday; please could your child come in his/her P.E. kit on those days. Please ensure he/she brings a water bottle and a piece of fruit or vegetable if required too.

Thank you so much for your support,

Mrs Matthews

A special message from Mrs Matthews 17.7.20

admin on: Class 3

Hello my wonderful team!

Here are a few of your latest wonderful photos and a special message for you all....





Here's the part that will make me cry! 

What a year we have all had! It was such a difficult day back on the 23rd March when I had to say goodbye to you all; like you, I felt so sad and tearful for quite some time. I did not think for one minute that we wouldn't have been able to be back together once again as year 3. We all kept our fingers tightly crossed in the hope that we would have all been back in our lovely little classroom after half term in May. We were certainly very wrong! I was so sad to have to desert you all on the blog too following my heart attack in April; what a shock that was!! I'm definitely back to full health now, thank goodness, and am really enjoying nice long walks with Poppy! I really enjoyed our special time together on Monday; it was soooooo lovely to see you all. We had a great time together didn't we? It was fun to have a little mini sports day of our own!! The winners of Sports Day by the way are 'Pitcher' (yellow); I have been busy counting all your scores all week!!

Thank you so very, very much for all the amazing work you have continued doing over 'lockdown'. I am so very proud of you all; working at home must have been so hard for you all. It has been so lovely seeing all your amazing photos; every single one of them makes me smile so much!

Thank you too to all the Mums and Dads, big brothers, sisters or grandparents that have worked so incredibly hard to help you with your school work at home. Being a Mum myself, I can totally appreciate how very hard this must have been at times and especially whilst you have had to work too. You really have done a fabulous job and deserve a well earned restful Summer, with lots of warm sunshine hopefully. I can't thank you enough for the fabulous support you have continued to provide.

Lastly, can I say an enormous thank you for all your wonderful support, kind words and very generous cards and gifts. You have all been so kind and thoughtful. Thank you so much for the wonderful album of gorgeous lockdown photos too; it made me cry at lunchtime! It is so wonderful and I will treasure it forever.

I cannot believe that I now have to hand your gorgeous children over to year 4; I really do feel so sad to think we have lost so many fabulous months together. We have had great fun in year 3 and I know we made a brilliant team. You will definitely be getting visits from me when you return to class 4 in September. Please do come and say hello as I will only be next door; you'll need to come and tell me all about your Summer! Do remember that your classroom will be in the old year 6 classroom (lucky you, it's so lovely and big) so when you come on your first day come to the year 5/6 door at the front of the building (the same door as me) and Mrs Kendall and I will warmly welcome you in! You will love Mrs Kendall and Miss Watkins; they are soooooo lovely and I know you will have great fun!

Have the best Summer ever and do have lots of fun!

Sending lots and lots of very big virtual hugs to you all!

Love from,

Mrs Matthews xxx

Friday 17th July!

admin on: Class 3

Good morning all!

I have a special message for you all a little later this morning but I know you will all be checking the blog early this morning so I just thought I'd say a quick hello!

Today in class we would have been having a special 'Golden Time' morning; this would be a morning where you can choose to do something you especially like doing. It might be playing lots of games, having a mini-disco, having a party, going for a lovely walk or practising lots of sports. So, today I'd really like you all to have a day of choosing whatever you like doing. You might paint some rocks, create a treasure hunt (with the rock as a prize), do some painting, make an obstacle course or snuggle on the settee and watch a movie together. Whatever you choose, have a fun, relaxing day!!

Check the blog a little later for more photos and a final goodbye message from me!!!

Sending you all a big virtual hug!!

Love from,

Mrs Matthews xx
