Class 3: Blog items
Date: 17th Jan 2021 @ 11:48am
It is very important that children practise their reading skills at home - whatever stage they're at in their reading development.
This is challenging at the moment with us not regularly changing home reading books, if at all.
We would like to direct you to the following website
You will need to register (for free) and then you can access a free e-book library.
They have most of the reading schemes that we use in school across the different levels.
You should have a reading book at home that you can use as a guide to find others at a similar level.
Please record in your child's reading diary, any books that they read so that we can keep a record and reward your child for their efforts.
Many thanks for your support.

Key Stage One had a very special treat on Monday 9th November - a theatre performance in the hall.
It looked a little different from our usual performances but no less exciting or engaging. The show was repeated 3 times so that we could watch in our class bubbles and only one actor attended in person (keeping his 2 metre distance from us) whilst the rest of the cast appeared on the big screen.
The show was amazing! The children loved it and it was a great stimulus for some super writing, drawing and learning of such a classic story.
A massive thank you to M&M Theatrical Productions. We support you in these difficult times. You did an incredible job.

Hello Class 3
This week we wish a great big Happy Birthday to our 'Football Crazy' Friend Leyton
Happy Birthday from Class 3, Mrs Keegan and Miss Burgan.
Have a Wonderful Day!
I wonder what you've all been up to lately. If you have managed to engage in some of the tasks I have set on our class page for Home Learning, well done. If you have completed any of the Home Learning Packs then that’s great too. In fact I am so proud of you all however you have been keeping busy during this difficult time and I miss you all so much. I will continue to add weekly tasks to our class page to keep you busy.
I continue to enjoy hearing from you through email and sharing pictures of your work and activities on our class page display wall so please do keep them coming. My email address is
How are those grass heads growing? Have you measured the length of their hair using some of the new maths skills you have acquired during home learning. Have you cut any crazy styles? Send me some pictures and let me know.
I hope you’ve managed to take a look at the news items on our class page for the latest competition,
Lots of our school staff have posed for the camera reading a book. See if you can work out Who’s Who? Look carefully – are there any clues that can help you? I’ll give you a clue. I’m reading about my two children's favourite activity. Can you remember what that is? Have a go and email your answers to me.
Please do keep reading (just like us) whilst you are at home. I'm sure you have read your reading books over and over again but there are plenty of ways to access books online. These links are on our class page under the reading tab. The first is very useful for reading about your favourite interests and hobbies or maybe finding out more about oceans and sea creatures:

Hello Class 3
I hope you had a lovely half term and enjoyed the amazing weather. I went for lots of walks in the sun. I also celebrated my birthday in the garden with a picnic and a big slice of cake.
It’s Moses’ Birthday later this week.
An Enormous Happy Birthday Moses
From Everyone in Class 3
Have a Fantastic Day.
I have also been reading lots lying on my sunbed. What have you been reading? How many chapters or books have you enjoyed during lockdown? I think I have read at least one chapter book each week. I’ve even reread some of my favourite books from when I was a child. I loved Enid Blyton especially her mystery stories. Who is your favourite author? Why not write a book review this week and recommend a book to a friend. Use the tab on our class page to find some ideas for book reviews.
I wonder what you have all been up to, remember to write and let me know. Send some pictures for our class page and stay in touch with each other.
Stay Safe and Busy at Home.

Hello Again Class 3
How are you all? I hope you had fun over Easter and maybe received an egg or two from the Easter bunny. I enjoyed a lovely cream egg one. How delicious it was!
It has been lovely to hear from so many of you over the past few weeks. I have replied to everyone who has written so far and managed to display some fantastic photos on our Class 3 Home Learning Display on the website.
Have you seen the video of many of our school staff 'busy' at home? Who was doing your favourite activity?
Have you tried Mr Mawson’s sports challenges? How did you do? I've had a go at spelling out my name in exercises. Give it a try.
I've been keeping busy at home catching up on many of the jobs I normally don’t have time for, such as cleaning the oven and scrubbing out the wheelie bins.
I hope you have been helping your grown ups around the house. My oldest boy Alex has been helping with the shopping and Liam has been folding the towels. I hope they will have learned how to iron and cook by the time they go back to school.
I have also been trying to stay active whilst the sun is shining and am walking every day trying to get my 10,000 steps or more!!!! I live near the River Mersey so I am very lucky to be able to walk along the shore. Just the other day I came across the most beautiful secret pond with a family of ducks and ducklings. What a special sight it was! What adventures have you been having? Don't forget to let me know on
Can any of you name the different sentence types I have typed in green? Can you remember the name of the purple words?
Well Done!!! I knew you wouldn't have forgotten. Try including some different sentence and word types in your very own blog. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hello Class 3
It has been great to hear from many of you during this time apart. Many of you have been busy with your school work before half term which made me very proud. Mikey has been learning how to tell the time, Matthew has been finding out all about the world. Leyton has been doing his comprehension work and lots of Maths. Rosie has been busy working on TT Rockstars along with lots of others. Why not challenge each other to a battle or even challenge a teacher. Mikey has celebrated his 7th Birthday and I was glad to hear that he was still able to get to see his friends…from a distance.
Happy 7th Birthday Mikey
Dillon has been having fun over Easter in his garden bouncing around. Our good friend Lleyton has also been in touch letting us know he is safe and well.
Look out for a catch up with me on the website over the weekend. Stay Safe and Stay Home.

Hello Class 3
I hope you are all staying home as much as possible and being well behaved for your grown ups. We are lucky to have had such good weather so far. Have you managed to get out for some daily exercise? You have all had a week at home now and I'd love to hear about what you have been getting up to. I miss reading your Learning Logs which are always packed with the things you have been learning and your exciting experiences too. If you'd like to say 'Hi' or tell me what you've been up to (just like you do in your Learning Logs) I'd love to read and reply. You can email me at
My 2 big teenagers have been trying to do a little school work each day but I think they are really missing their friends. I'm sure you are feeling the same about your friends too. Hopefully we will all be back together soon. I've been dropping shopping off for my mum who is 70 and trying to follow all the rules by just waving to her through the window. Some young neighbours have painted her a rainbow for her window, which has really cheered her up. Have you made one yet? I'd love to see those too.
I have challenged a few of you to a battle over on TT Rockstars. The battles are hard as they include all 12 of the times tables so ask a grown up for help or a big brother or sister. Go easy though as I'm a little out of practice. I'm going to use some of this time to brush up on my 6's and 8's. Have a look at the subject tabs on our class page and have a little go at something each day if you can. The reading tab really is excellent and has some fantastic books. I bet we can all guess who will be reading about 'The World' and who will enjoy the books about 'Dinosaurs'
I'll be in touch soon!
I miss you all
Stay home, stay safe
