Welcome back year 3!
From next week, year 3 have the option to return to school. Some of you will be coming in from Monday (6th) and others will start the following Monday (13th).
You will receive a letter in the post over the next couple of days. This will explain which 'bubble' you have been allocated to. Here is a video all about what school is like at the moment.
See you soon!
Home Learning in Year 3
Please find below the home learning that has been prepared for Year 3. Children (and lots of grown ups!) love routine so we have prepared daily literacy, maths, topic and well being activities for you to get busy with! We will upload new work weekly and all documents will be accessible from either 3D or 3C's class page.
Mrs Crawford would love to hear from you, while we're learning at home, so please send her updates to
Creative Quarter Challenges
Keep an eye on the Creative Quarter page ( https://www.haydn.nottingham.sch.uk/creative-quarter/ ) on our website for weekly art challenges that you can all get involved in, inspiring websites and links.
Lots of the grown ups, from Haydn, have started reading their favourite books for you to enjoy and so you can see some friendly faces. Ask your grown ups if you can follow the link below:
Good morning, 3C! It's been lovely to talk to so many of you on the phone this week. You are adapting to the "new normal" so well. You're being all of our 5Rs, even at home and even in half term! I have been busy doing some more geography jobs but I've also had a bit of a half term, too. I hope you've been enjoying the sunshine with your suncream on. I'll be ringing some more of you this week so ask your grown ups to keep their eyes peeled for a call off a withheld number. Lots of love, Mrs Crawford xxx
Hi 3C! I hope everyone has had another lovely week at home and you've been outside, getting some exercise, whilst the sun's been out. I have been baking a lot and I made a banana and pear loaf this morning. Obviously, I made sausage rolls yesterday. It's great to see everyone using SeeSaw and to still be receiving so many emails from you. I love to see your happy faces. I miss you all so much. You're doing such great jobs of staying at home and staying safe. Lots of love, Mrs Crawford xxx
Good morning, 3C! I am writing to you from inside our classroom! What a happy time. It's certainly a lot tidier without you all in it! How I haven't missed the sticking space bar on my desk computer... I hope you all enjoyed the sunshine last week. Your home learning looks lots of fun. I love receiving your photos. Lots of you have already seen that I have started a class SeeSaw page so you can keep in touch with everybody. I know some of you have been doing Zoom quizzes and phone calls anyway. Did you see that the grown ups made a YouTube video?
Back to the geography jobs for me this week! Maps, maps, maps. Lots of love, Mrs Crawford xxx
Hola, 3C! I've had another great week of enjoying your photos and speaking to you on the phone. I've also been doing lots of grown up geography jobs so I have been very busy. I'm keeping up with Joe Wicks and I have very tired legs. I hope some of you did Fancy Dress Friday with him, today! I'm going to school next week so fingers crossed for sunshine please. Keep sending me your photos and telling me all of the fun stuff you've been doing. I hear lots of you have been baking. Delicious. Lots of love, Mrs Crawford xxx
I've had another excellently fun week of reading your emails and speaking to some of you on the phone. I've been ringing from my house so the number might say "withheld" on your grown up's phone. The photos of what you're creating, with things you've found around the house, fill my heart with rainbows. It's lovely to hear about how you're being really grown up in this crazy time that we're in. We should all remember that it isn't going to last forever and we will all be back together soon. Keep me posted on your busy weeks. Lots of love, Mrs Crawford xxx
I have LOVED reading your emails this week. It is just wonderful to see your happy faces doing your home learning and any extra busy jobs that your grown ups have given you. Here's just a few that I've received.
Ask your grown ups really nicely if they can send me some pictures (it's really important that they tell me your gorgeous faces are allowed on the website, too). Keep busy and safe. Lots of love, Mrs Crawford xxx
Ivan and Percy got their grown ups to send Mrs Crawford a video of them doing their reading comprehension home learning together. What a clever idea, boys!
Mrs Crawford is ready and waiting to see what other super ideas you have about how to stay in touch and keep on learning!
Home Learning Pack
Here is another resource to use for ideas if you want to supplement the class home learning packs.
Welcome to 2M!
We have had a fabulous start to the Autumn term. We have been reading lots of wonderful books and have really enjoyed reading "Dear Greenpeace" by Simon James, which is all about a little girl called Sophie who finds a whale in her pond.
We had a mysterious creature of our own appear in the school garden and they left us some clues. After investigating, the children discovered there was an elephant living in the school garden. We named her Nelly. She’s a very messy elephant and she left lots of nouns, proper nouns, verbs and adjectives in the garden for us to find. We had great fun finding them and using them to make silly sentences.
We had some awesome tennis training from the Nottingham tennis Centre this half term. Charlie taught us some great tennis skills and we played some fun games. Take a look!
We hope you had a lovely half-term. Year one certainly had an egg-citing start to the term!
During morning playtime a dinosaur wrecked havoc in our classroom. We found footprints, snow and hay. After much discussion, 1S decided that the dinosaur had laid an egg because there was lots of hay and the dinosaur may have used it to make a nest. We discussed where the dinosaur might be and decided it would probably be in the field so we set off outside to see if we could find the dinosaur and the egg in the rather snowy field! We split into teams and searched high and lo. We found 6 eggs in total! 1S decided that the eggs needed nests so then, in their teams, made a nest for each egg. They worked so well together to collaboratively make cosy nests.
Spring term in 1S so far has been very cool. We have been learning all about Polar Regions. We have been learning about what and where the Polar regions are and have also been learning about the different polar animals, particularly penguins! We were very lucky to have a visit from Tim Morley, who is a scientist. Tim spent 16 months on Bird Island in Antarctica researching wildlife there. He told us all about his time there, answered our questions and showed us his many incredible photographs and video footage. We were all in awe!
Thank you for visiting Tim and inspiring a future generation of scientists!
Please remember to check book bags over half-term. Inside there are some important letters and notes, including: the half-term homework project, Christmas card designs, book fair catalogue.
There is also a reading beanstalk: this is for children to colour in each time they read so they can get reading certificates and eventually a prize! Keep up the great effort with reading at home All children were given two new books for over half-term.
Have a lovely half term. See you on Monday 6th November!
Welcome to 1S
The children have settled into 1S brilliantly this half term and we have had a fantastic start to the year! I can already tell that we are going to have such fun!
This half term we are learning all about Our World, Near and Far.
We have been reading about the adventures of Paddington Bear and helping him write about all of the fun things he has seen and done in London!
This has involved learning a little bit about our capital city and some of the landmarks and as we couldn't go on a school trip to London, we used the iPads to go on a virtual tour and saw all of the sights!
You could have a look at this at home by visiting https://360.visitlondon.com/
We have used maps and atlases to see where Paddington travelled from and learnt about what it is like in Peru, comparing it to London.
We have created some fabulous Peruvian artwork and outfits; you can see some of them displayed in our classroom.
Over the next few weeks we will be learning about Autumn in Nottingham.
We will update our class page regularly to keep you up to date with our topics and any important dates. We will also post photographs of the children and their learning for you to enjoy!
Please refer to the attached links and documents for guidance on reading, spellings, handwriting etc. in order to best support your children at home.
Please remember to have a named P.E kit in school at all times for our P.E lessons with Mr Ward on Friday afternoons. These can go home at half term to be freshened up
Please remember to label ALL school uniform to ensure it does not get lost, particularly cardigans and jumpers.
We still need a few more parent reading volunteers (any other family members also welcome) so if you have any availability then please speak to one of the 1S team. Thank you!
