Well done to those of you who learned to tie your shoe laces last week. We are super proud of you.

- Make your bed
- Wash up/ help to load the dishwasher

These tasks are again great life skills and will help when you are grown-ups too!

Hello to you all!

Can you tie your shoe laces?
Our challenge to you this week is to learn to tie your shoe laces. I can hear you saying, "But my shoes are velcro!" For most of you that is true but I'm sure soon enough you will have laces on your school shoes, football boots, trainers or even need a bow when wrapping a gift. This is a handy life skill!
There are many different ways to tie a shoe, so have a go at these different ways and see which one you find easiest. Or perhaps someone at home has an even better way to teach you.
We would love to hear how you get on each week with these challenges, so please send us your photos to the office email address and we shall try to share some on this blog.
Hello to you all!
We hope that you are all settling in to your new daily routines and are enjoying your learning packs. If you did not receive a pack due to being absent please look at the activities page on the school website for further information.
Please do keep checking back at our blog page and the activities page as we will be adding different content over the coming days and weeks.
Below are some handy links that you might like to look at over this coming week.
We have been joining in with Joe Wicks PE sessions each day, whether in school or in our homes. We have aching muscles but are feeling great! Have you completed any of his daily PE sessions? Maybe you could send a photo to the office of you completing these at home.
Nature and wildlife
It is wonderful to hear the birds singing in our gardens. If you enjoy wildlife watching here are some links to watch animals on livecam! I have enjoyed watching the pandas and cheeky penguins so far!
Head over to the following link to hear David Walliams read his books. Each day at 11am he will release a new audio clip. I'm sure these will make us smile!
We will also be setting a Year 3 weekly challenge so keep your eyes peeled!
We do hope you are well and miss seeing you each day.
Stay safe and keep washing your hands.

We loved reading to the Year 2 children for World book day.
Which book would you share with someone? Do you have a favourite author or story?
This term's Design and Technology topic is 'Food and Drink'. We are going to be exploring seasonal fruit and vegetables in the upcoming weeks and thinking about what makes a great smoothie.
In the lead up to our D&T sessions, there will be a 'Drink label hunt' sheet coming home this week for you to do some research on different drink labels. Look closely at the nutritional information and the traffic light colours. Is that drink a healthy choice?
We look forward to hearing all about your investigations and sharing your research.
Just a reminder for the Year 3 class assemblies coming up:
3C - today (13th March)
3DH - 20th March
3H - 27th March

This week we have been learning about the watercycle. We have learnt that the water on the Earth today is the same water from the prehistoric period-amazing!
Can you tell your adult what these words mean?
We watched this clip to help understand the process further:https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z8qtfg8
We also looked at a catchy song :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KM-59ljA4Bs
Hope you're all trying the dance moves from the song :)
The Year 3 Team
We have had another busy week in Year 3.
This week is Children's Mental Health Week and we have been discussing the topic of bravery. Mr Plowman delivered an assembly on Monday, talking about what bravery is and how we can be brave. On Wednesday, a volunteer from the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) came to speak to each year group about the work the charity does and the local lifeboat station at Harwich. We also heard the story of Grace Darling, an amazing example of bravery from the 19th century. In today's Celebration Assembly, a child from each class was awarded a certificate for being brave this week.
Challenge yourself to be brave this weekend and try something you haven't done before.

This term in art we have been using the book A River by Marc Martin. This book is full of the most wonderful illustrations following the path of a river through different scenes including the jungle, a city, a farm and out into the ocean.
This week we took the hills and valleys as our inspiration. Using watercolours we experimented mixing , blending and layering different colours to create hills, valleys and trees with different textures. We then put our work into practice and recreated the scene ourselves.
See for yourself some of the fabulous results.
