Teacher Letters

Monday 13th July

 

Dear Year 3,

 

Can you believe that it is the last week of term? I have had such a wonderful time getting to know each of you throughout the school closure and sharing the wonderful learning that you have been doing with you.

 

I would like to say a great, big congratulations to each of you for all of the wonderful things you have achieved this year. You have shown great determination, positivity and resilience throughout the year and particularly through the school closure and we are very proud of you for this.

 

I hope you have a fantastic, restful summer and we cannot wait to welcome you back at St Dominic’s in September when you begin your journey through Year 4! I am certain that you will continue to show the same ambition and achieve amazing things.

 

If you would like to share anything you have completed this week or ask me any questions, please continue to use the school’s admin email address to contact me.

 

Best wishes to you and your families. Stay safe,

 

Miss Rees

Dear St Bernadette,

 

How are you? I can’t believe that there is only two weeks left of the school year. We are all so proud of the patience and resilience you have shown throughout the school closure and can’t wait to welcome you back to school when we can.

 

This week in English you are going to use your own ideas to write a story. I would love to read the stories you create so please do send them to me once you have completed them.

 

In Maths, you will be learning about the relationship between Multiplication and Division and different methods you can use to help you solve these problems. Remember to keep practising you times-table facts. You can test yourself on: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

 

You will be continuing your work on the topics of The Tempest and Sound. There is an additional lesson scheduled on Oak National Academy this week about Sound that will support the learning you have been doing too.

Have a great week and take care,

Dear Year 3,

 

How are you? I hope you managed to enjoy the beautiful sunshine we had last week. I enjoyed it by spending my evenings eating my picnic dinner in the park. Did anyone do anything special?

 

This week your Maths focus is all about ‘Time’.  There are more activities and support available here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zjf4ydm

 

In English you will be exploring poetry. You will use your imagination to create your own poem about your journey to a location of your choice. I am so excited to see what you will come up with. I think I’d choose to journey to an exotic island filled with a tropical rainforest and wild animals.

 

Please keep in touch and let me know if you need any help with what you are doing. We are all so proud of your patience and resilience throughout the school closure and can’t wait to see you back at school when it is safe to do so.

 

Take care,


Miss Rees

Dear Year 3,

I hope everyone is feeling well and is continuing to enjoy the home learning tasks that have been set for you.

 

This week you focussed on measurement and writing a non-chronological report using the Oak National Academy. I have really enjoyed reading some of the writing you have produced. I was also really impressed with the art work you have created to show scenes from The Tempest. I really like the way lots of you have effectively used colour to show the mood of your piece.

 

If you have any questions about the work that has been set for this week or you’d like to share anything you have completed with me, please get in touch. I love hearing from you and have been so impressed with all that I have seen so far.

 

Stay safe,

Miss Rees

Dear St Bernadette,

 

I hope everyone is safe and well. I have really enjoyed setting your home learning this term. I am learning lots of new things about ‘The Tempest’ and Italy. I hope you are finding the activities that have been set just as interesting.

 

Thank you so much for your message, Yasmin. I loved hearing about all the things you have been busy doing. Well done for making the omelette for your mum and dad – it sounds delicious!

 

I’d love to hear about what you are all doing to keep yourselves busy and see some of the wonderful work you have completed so please do get in touch.

 

Stay safe,

Miss Rees

Hello Year 3,

 

I hope everyone is well and has had a brilliant Half Term Break. What beautiful sunshine we were lucky to have all week!

 

It is so great to hear how much some of you are really enjoying the home learning tasks set. This half term you are beginning a new topic: Shakespeare’s The Tempest – I am really excited to explore this more and more with you. You will also begin a new topic ‘Sound’ in Science.

 

If you have any questions or would like to share your work with me, please get in touch!

 

Take care,

 

Miss Rees

Hello St Bernadette,

 

I hope everyone is well and taking good care of themselves during this unusual time.

I am really enjoying getting to know the children in Year 3. Thank you so much to those of you who have got in touch to share your brilliant work and photos.

 

This week, I treated myself by baking some cookies. I have never done this before so it was a new challenge for me. After a few tweaks and some trial and error, I was very pleased with the final result. The white chocolate ones were delicious. Has anyone else had a chance to do some baking or cooking at home?

 

If you would like to ask me any questions about the work I have set or want to share anything with me, please do send me a letter or an email via the school’s admin address.

Stay safe and have a great week,

Miss Rees

Hello St Bernadette,

 

I hope everyone is doing well and is keeping safe and healthy.

 

Thank you so much for your message and photos Tommy. It’s great to hear how busy you have been keeping with your schoolwork as well as your exercise. I was so impressed with your video demonstrating your football skills! It’s really important that we use our daily exercise time to keep our bodies and minds healthy at the moment, well done! I have been running too and love running around Regents Park because I get to spot some animals at the zoo. My favourites are the giraffes.  

 

I hope everyone has been enjoying the work I have set for you and everything has gone well tuning in for daily lessons with Oak National Academy online. If you have any questions about the home learning or you’d like to share your work or news with me, please send me an email using the school’s admin address or send a letter to school addressed to Miss Rees. I really love hearing for you and seeing all the wonderful things you are getting up to so please don’t hesitate to keep in touch.

 

Take care,

 

Miss Rees

Hello St Bernadette,

 

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the home learning that has been set for you.

 

‘Roman Rule’ is one of my favourite topics to teach and I have really enjoyed setting the different tasks for you. I would love to see some of the work that you have completed.

 

I have been researching some books to recommend for you to read at home. I like the look of ‘Kid Normal’ by Gregg James. It seems very funny. Has anyone already read this?

 

If you have any questions about the home learning you have been set, you want to show me any of the work or things you have been doing at home or you just want to let me know your news, please do get in touch. I would really love to hear from you. You can email me using the school’s admin address or send a letter to school addressed to Miss Rees and I will get back to you.

 

Take care,

 

Miss Rees

Hello St Bernadette,

 

It is Miss Rees here! As Mr Perry is not in school at this time, I am so delighted and lucky to be given the chance to write to you and keep in touch with you all.

 

I will be writing a weekly post to keep up to date with everything you are doing at home. If you would like to tell me anything then you can write a letter addressed to me (Miss Rees) via the school or send an email to me via school’s admin address. I have seen some of your amazing work before and I am so excited to learn more about the children in Year 3 so please do get in touch with me.

 

I imagine that you have been doing lots of different activities during this time to keep yourselves busy at home. One of the things that I have been doing is completing a 1000 piece Harry Potter puzzle. It is really challenging and taking a lot of perseverance to keep going but I have promised myself that I won’t give up. I have also been doing lots of reading. Have you read any good books lately? I really enjoy going outside for my daily exercise and use this time to run or cycle – I’ve even managed to spot a few animals in the zoo as I run around Regent’s Park! What have you been doing at home?

 

I hope you are enjoying the activities that have been set for you on the website. If you have any questions about your home learning then you can ask me those in your letters or emails too. I would love to see some pictures of the wonderful work you are doing too.

 

I can’t wait to hear from you and to get to know you more over the next few weeks.

 

Have a great week,

 

Miss Rees
