What a fantastic and very quick week it has been! It seems to have zoomed by.
The children have been learning about 3 digit numbers in Maths, practising writing stories and learning about where the Roman Fort was in North Tawton. We have worked hard and they have risen to the challenge putting in a huge amount of effort.
Homework will be spellings (I'll email out) and times table practising on Times Table Rocks Stars. If you are struggling to get on, please let me know. I will have set the times table to the one they need to practise (2 or 10). I will be looking imminently to move some children again.
For History, if you are out and about in the town and can take photos of historical buildings, or have some interesting historical knowledge about North Tawton, please do share on Class Dojo. We would love to see them.
I have shared some photos on Class Dojo. Please look there if you would like to see them.
I hope you all have a fab weekend.
Wow! What a fantastic week the children have had. They have dived right into the learning as if they have never been away. I'm, and everyone else, is so proud of them.
We have started our history and we will be learning about the Roman fort, the woollen mill and the train station that used to be in North Tawton. If you are walking around the town nearby and you fancy taking photos, or if you have any other interesting photos/information of historic parts of North Tawton, please do share them on Dojo and we will add them to our timeline.
The children also had a coaching session this week with a coach from Saints Southwest. They are learning about team games. I saw some great team work.
I have sent home spellings for this week (I'll email out the list for you child's group) and I sent their Times Table Rock Stars logins yesterday. Any questions, please do let me know.
Thanks again for all your support this week with settling them back into school.
We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back and telling you about all the fun things we will be doing this term. There is a picture of the classroom for you to see.
We understand that you may be feeling a little bit anxious about the return. Please be assured that we are here for you to chat about what you are worried about. Please don't worry about remembering all the new rules as the adults in class will help you. The most important thing is to come back and say hello to everyone!
Important reminders first:
1. We are going to be having some special PE coaching on a Friday that I will talk about more tomorrow. Every Friday, please come dressed in PE kit and make sure you have warm tracksuit bottoms on or leggings.
2. We will be ensuring that we keep the class well-ventilated so please make sure that you have lots of layers. Please bring your coat and jumper each day. Please also bring water bottles.
3. Please arrive at 8:55am at the gate and be ready to pick up at 3:30pm. Siblings may arrive at the earlier time of arrival but not the later time.
4. Please remember your pencil case.
We are going to be sending out reading books as normal but we will quarantine them for 72 hours afterwards.
Tomorrow will be a settling in day. We are going to be writing about our holidays, look at numbers from 0 to 1000 and doing lots of PSHE to get to know each other again.
Our history this term is going to be Local History. We are going to study some sites in the town that are of historical interest. Can you guess what they might be?
Mrs Jelley and Mrs Squires will be working with us in the mornings. From next week, you will have Ms Chauhan for Art and DT and Mrs Matthews for Music on a Tuesday morning. Mrs Day will be with us on Tuesday afternoons.
There will be lots of time tomorrow for us to catch up and find out what you have been up to and how you are feeling about coming back to school.
If you have any exciting photos of your holiday and you would like to share them, please post them to the Dojo.
Really looking forward to your return!
Hello and welcome to Willow Class page! We are the Year 3 class at North Tawton Community Primary School and our class teachers are Miss Sarah Keen and Ms Gina Ruby. While Ms Ruby is currently on maternity leave, Miss Keen is covering for her and will be working full time.
Every week, we complete our multiplication Mountain Challenge and a spelling test so it is really important that children are practising these at home as well as reading regularly.
Key information about our school day can be found on our class newsletter and wider curriculum maps, but please feel free to contact Miss Keen via Class Dojo if you have any questions. Regular updates about our learning will also be posted on Class Dojo.
