Year 3 2019 - 2020

Mr Randall

I enjoy teaching and like to offer exciting and engaging themes to help with children’s learning. I am keen to involve children in P.E. activities and competitions throughout the year. I am a FA level 1 football coach and run the school football club.

Outside school some of my interests include playing badminton, DIY and learning to water ski as well as looking after my two children.

I am excited to be working with your children. It is important to me that every child feels included and supported (and has some fun along the way!).
I have three children and a large Labrador! There isn't a lot of spare time but when I can I enjoy reading, going for walks and I love to visit the Seaside!

Welcome to KS2 and Year 3.

Year 3 should be a fun place to be for you with lots of exciting projects and activities to do. From lots of PE to studying rocks and crumbling, you will soon become used to KS2!

This term we are learning about canals and studying the book, 'Kidnap on the Canal' (ISBN 0-7496-3540-1). This story is set in the Victorian Times 1800s. It is about a boy who is kind enough to help on a canal boat but then becomes trapped! We will be visiting the Waterways Museum in Ellesmere Port in October and linking it with local history and geography.

We will be continuing 'Engineering' which relates to the 'Engineering Habit of Mind' (EHoM). This will be linked with other curriculum areas thus making learning more relevant and meaningful. There will be lots of fun and exciting things to do! We might even work with year 4 on some projects!

Homework will consist of maths, EducationCity and spelling as well as reading and doing Times Table Rock Stars.

 I am looking forward to teaching your children this year and are excited about all they have to offer.

Year 3 Home School Pack (send with children in blue folder)

Dear Parents and Carers,

Here is some work to help your children during the extra time not in school. Have a go at what you can do but please don’t feel you have to attempt everything, especially in the unusual situation we are in. If there are online educational games that your children enjoy, they can be really beneficial.

Maths: Consists mainly ‘Target Maths’ ABC. C is more challenging. 

Literacy and Topic: There is a SPAG paper (spelling punctuation and grammar). Use it as learning rather than a test. There is also a spelling activity book. Please feel free to write stories as well. There is a comprehension sheet enclosed. Learn times tables and read.

 Note that we will be starting ‘Living off the Land’ after Easter which relates to ‘The Stone Age’. (Stig of the Dump by Clive King is the book we will be reading, feel free to order this and start reading it.) Colour in animal picture and find out some information about it. There is a Stig of the Dump DVD you could try and order for fun.

RE and Science: Complete the Easter story board. Set up and experiment with perhaps 3 seeds in different pots. Use different variables for growing them e.g. light, dark, water, no water, different types of soil, different liquid to feed them, you choose! There is a rock sheet which you could use and go in the garden and find rocks. Keep active by skipping or running, cycling!

I hope you manage over the next few weeks/months in these very strange circumstances.

Best wishes and take care

Mr Randall
