ARRANGEMENTS FOR NEXT YEAR- Start and Finish Times

We are currently operating staggered start and finish times and entry and exit from the school site is via a one way system. This will continue in September. Parents are currently unable to enter any of the school buildings and this will also continue in September. This is a change from our arrangements prior to the pandemic and we are sad that parents won’t be able to drop their children off in their classrooms, however, we need to do all we can to reduce the potential risk of transmission of COVID-19 and balance this with the wellbeing of our children. We are very proud of how the children currently in school have adapted to this system of arriving and departing from school and are confident that with our support, all pupils will be able to adapt quickly to this. 

 

The proposed arrangements for September are as follows:

        Arrival Time Departure Time

Year R 8.45am 3pm*

Year 1 9am 3.15pm

Year 2 9am 3.15pm

Year 3 8.45am 3.15pm

Year 4 8.45am 3.15pm

Year 5 8.30am 3pm

Year 6 8.30am 3pm

*from Monday 12th October

 

Entry to the school site will be via the gate by the bike sheds on the Foundry Lane playground or via the Imperial Avenue gate only . Exit from the site will be via the main Foundry Lane gate or the English Road gate only. If you are collecting multiple children from the school site, a map of the one way system will be provided nearer to September so that you can see the best entry point, one way route and possible exit points to suit your collection needs.

 

 Please note that all of the above is subject to change if guidance changes. It will inevitably take some time for everyone to work their way through the one way system and drop children off at their classrooms. We will be on hand to guide and support you through this process until it becomes a more natural process. Please bear with us in the early days as we will all be learning together and our aim is to keep everybody safe. We have done our best to anticipate any potential issues and mitigate these but until we run the system in full, we will not know whether there is anything that we haven’t planned for.

END OF TERM UPDATE

As the end of term approaches I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for your support over the last few months. This has been a challenging time for each and every one of us and our families, but by ‘working together’ we have been able to begin the long and challenging process of reopening school safely for all our children. Your words of support and thanks have really helped everybody in school and kept us going when the task of re-opening seemed far from possible.

 

Arrangements for Final Few Days of Term – Children Currently in School Tomorrow is an early finish for most pupils with the exception of Year 6 and Miss Boulain’s key worker class who will be finishing at 1pm as normal.

The times for collection are below:

Year 1, Year 1 key workers and Year 2 key workers will be finishing at 12pm

 Year R and Year R keyworkers will be finishing at 12.15pm – please enter via the English Road playground and exit via Foundry Lane

 Key stage 2 key worker classes finish at 12.30pm

 Year 6 and Miss Boulain’s Key Worker class will be finishing at 1pm

 

Please use the usual collection entrances and exits with the exception of the Year R keyworker class who will come in through English Road and out through Foundry Lane. If you need to collect your child early in order for siblings to attend their class Zooms, please contact the school office to arrange this. Please note that due to the early finish tomorrow, the children will not be having lunch in school. If they bring a packed lunch normally, they will not need to do this. There will be no school dinners provided tomorrow.

Lawn Tennis

A makeshift court can be laid out on grass using tape, or drawn out with chalk on a hard surface. You will need a net between the players - a long piece of string tied to trees or fence posts works well.

In playing one of the players 'serves' the ball so that it will go over the net and into a specified space on the opposite side. His opponent then attempts to return the serve by hitting the ball and knocking it back over the net somewhere within the playing space as determined by the lines. In this way the ball is played back and forth until one of the players fails either to return it over the net or into the required space. I

We are delighted to announce that your child's school report for this academic year will be available to collect from your child's class teacher or class representative from next week.

Please be aware that some times may get busier than others and there may be a short wait before you are able to enter the school site.

There will be a one way system to follow around the school site, please enter via the Imperial Avenue gate at any time between 3.30-4.30pm.   Please respect social distancing as you queue and walk around the site.

Please don’t let your child bring anything from home except their lunch, a named water bottle, a sun hat and a fruit or vegetable snack for the morning. Due to allergies in school, please don’t send in cereal bars, snacks containing seeds or nuts and oranges.

In the new packs, there is a lot of information about different topics such as ocean creatures, the Paralympic Games etc. The suggested activities for these will be posted on the website across the next few weeks (as the packs were large enough without adding this extra information!) I hear that some children have taken a particular interest to a topic and if you want to explore it before that's great. I have now added the suggested activities to go with each part below. Equally, you or the children may have your own ideas for using this information which is also cool.

The next pack is split into two stapled sections mainly due to the alternative number bond tasks provided for those children who find the revision of the 4 Maths operations too challenging. Explanations and research to help with tasks also contributed to the size, but I hope you and the children will find these useful. Due to the content of the pack, you will notice in the suggested learning that it will go into part of a third week. As always if you need anything, please email year3@foundrylaneprimary.co.uk. Thank you for your continued support. Miss Boulain

English/Outdoor Learning

 

Write a story inspired by woods and trees

To encourage writing and using a pen or pencil to write with, get those creative juices flowing with a story challenge.   For younger children maybe ask them questions and let them tell a story.  Creative thinking and speaking is just as important as writing.

Where is your story going to take place?  Encourage the setting to be somewhere they know, a natural environment they are familiar with.  Maybe the school garden or local park? 

When is it happening?  Encourage time periods, past present or future.

Who is in your story?  Describe your characters, not just how they look but who they are.

Who or what is your story about?

What happens?  What has been going on while we have been in lockdown?  Remember to have a beginning, middle and end.  What are you building up to and what will the outcome be?

Why did this all happen?  Don’t leave your reader in suspense!  Explain your plot.

Try to put these ideas in an order that makes sense and create a story around them.  If you have somewhere near you where you can sit and muse these ideas, with a note pad, all the better!

  • A tree has fallen in the woods
  • A character has gone missing
  • An animal is shouting an alarm call
  • Someone has been littering or causing damage.
  • There are some mysterious footprints to follow.

 

Can you illustrate your story with natural collage you have collected while out today?  Maybe form the area that your story is about?

Gather together and share the stories you've written.  They'll make great bedtime stories too!

 

SPAG

Ninja word ‘recline’.  Go outside. Imagine you are reclining in a hammock or find a place to recline. Listen to the sounds. Describe in your home learning book what you could hear.

 

Maths

Roll a dice 4 times to generate 4 numbers. If you haven’t got a dice then pick what 4 numbers to use.

What 4-digit numbers can you make from the 4 numbers you have rolled? Record your answers. Can you work systematically to find them all? What’s the difference between the smallest 4-digit number and the largest 4-digit number? Choose one of your 4-digit numbers. How many different ways can you partition this number? Record in your home learning book.

English Tongue Twisters

 

Have you ever played about with tongue twisters?

They are a group of words that are difficult to say.  It takes a lot of work to get your mouth around all the syllables, because they often use alliteration and rhyming blends.

 

We will list a different tongue twister for each day, for two weeks (with an extra four in case you want to keep going over the weekend).  Start by reading it out loud, slowly, and then try to speed up.  The idea is that you repeat it until you can say it as fast as you can, without making any mistakes.  When you do get it wrong, enjoy saying silliness instead!

Please do take a moment to read this week’s newsletter, particularly the E-Safety section.  We’ve shared resources to help your children stay safe online, particularly during school closures.  We have noticed that some of our pupils have been “liking” our school Facebook page.  Please bear in mind that the minimum age for using Facebook is 13, their terms of use state, “Facebook requires everyone to be at least 13 years old before they can create an account (in some jurisdictions, this age limit may be higher). Creating an account with false info is a violation of our terms. This includes accounts registered on the behalf of someone under 13.”

Poetry - Task 1

Read the poem the Space on the Page or lesson to Michael Rosen the author read it. https://clpe.org.uk/poetryline/poems/space-page

This poem is free-verse. It does not have consistent patterns and it does not rhyme.

It repeats ‘The space on the page’ why do you think it does that?  Is the space on the page actually his friend?  The space on the page is just the blank piece of paper. He is describing the paper which isn’t a person as if it is a person (his friend). This is called personification. Watch Michael Rosen read it when does he pause? Why do you think he pauses there?

Read it aloud what tone are you going to use? Happy? Sad? Loud?  Quiet? A mixture? Have a go and if an adult would like to record it and send it to use we’d love to hear it.

Staying safe

During this time, your child may be spending more time using the internet to support their learning. Please ensure that while they are doing their research they are in an area where you can regularly check on them. It is important to remind your child of staying safe online, and that the same rules apply at home as they would in school. These rules are set to keep them safe

Science (Indoors)

Lets Make a Rain Gauge!

Having discovered how the water cycle works, can we measure our rainfall?

You will need:

  • Clear plastic bottle
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pen or marker
  • Paper (for recording rainfall)

 

  1. With a sharp knife, cut the neck of the bottle off.  Try to keep it as straight as you can.
  2. Use plasticine, playdoh or something similar, to fill the base of your bottle to cover the dimples and make it level in the bottom.  This will also add weight to stop your bottle falling over.
  3. Put a little oil in the bottom just enough to cover the filler.  Using your marker, draw around the bottle, level with the oil.
  4. Invert the top (turn it upside down) to make a funnel.
  5. Using your ruler and marker pen, place a mark every cm up the bottle from the top of the oil line you already marked and number them from 1. at the bottom counting up toward the top of the bottle.
  6. Place your rain gauge outside in an open space.
  7. After it rains, head outside and check your gauge! Remember to measure from your base line - not from the bottom of the bottle! Use your paper to record your results.

 

Extension:         Can you put your recordings into a table?

Can you put your data into a graph?

Yesterday it rained 1.5cm but today the bottle records 3.5cm,how much rainfall has there been today?

Discuss - why does the oil float?

How does that help our rain gauge to be more accurate?

Oil is less dense than water. This means that it is lighter and is able to float to the surface. Having less density makes the oil float on the water just like a straw or a piece of foam.

The oil prevents any water from evaporating which makes our recording more accurate.

Scene 3: Final Scene

George and Lola sit on the beach wrapped in towels shivering. A boat is sailing away.
 

Lola:                 (sniffing with her teeth chattering) I can’t believe we’ve made it.

                George puts his arm around her.           

George: (quietly and looking out to sea) Nor can I. I was certain they’d

                  kill us.


Lola:                 (closing her eyes) I don’t want to think about it! I can still see

                  their scary faces as they pushed us off the boat.
 
               George picks up his mobile phone and dials a number.


Lola:                 Is it working?

George: (angrily) Yep, and I think it’s about time we called the police and 

                 told them exactly where Alex and his gang are heading and what

                 they’ve stolen.

Lola:                 Do you think we’ll ever get it back?

 

English Task 6

Dealing with my Worries

                                                                              

Have you ever had a worry that wouldn’t go away?

 

Read the pack for guidance. 

 

TASK ONE:

 

Read the poem Whatif by Shel Silverstein.  It is all about the worries that have got caught up in someone’s head.

 

Which of these worries do you sometimes have?  What other things worry you that aren’t in this poem?  Brainstorm all of your ideas.  Split them into two groups: those that it is possible to change on your own, and those that you have no control over. If you can print off the poem, cut it up and stick them into the chart.  You could get a family member to scribe your thoughts instead.

 

Worries you can do something about

Worries you can’t do anything about

 

 

 

TASK TWO

 

In Peru, people make tiny little dolls and tell them their worries.  Then the doll can carry those worries instead of the person holding onto them.

 

If you have scraps of material and wool, you could make yourself a worry doll. Alternatively, on a sheet of paper, draw a large worry doll and cut it out.

 

On the back of the doll, write all of the worries that you cannot do anything to change.  When you go to bed tonight, you could put your worries under your pillow so they don’t disturb your sleep.

 

IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT WORRYING ABOUT WHAT YOU CANNOT CHANGE

WILL NOT MAKE THINGS ANY BETTER BUT IT WILL MAKE YOU UNHAPPY!

 

TASK THREE

 

If you are feeling worried, there are some physical things that you can do to help you cope with the feelings. Look in the pack for some ideas.

Design a leaflet or a poster to help children at Foundry Lane who may be feeling worried or anxious.  Give them any advice that you think will help them chase their worry monsters away. Send them to us so we can publish them on the school website.

I am Responsible for ME

Now make a list of everything that distracted you this week!

Everything!!

Even the little things that your family don’t know about

 

Sort them into two groups

 

Things that disturbed my learning which weren’t my fault:

These distractions were my choice and are my responsibility:

                                                                                    

                                                                                                      

 

When you get distracted, does it make work easier or harder?

Did it help you reach your goal, or did it set you back?

Could you make a difference to your mind-set to improve things?

How could you change your working space to make things better?

 

Sometimes it is hard to accept that the mistakes we make are our fault 

We try to blame others, even when we know we could have made better choices.

Being able to admit when we are at fault is impressive!  We love it when people ‘own it’ and say, “I did that.”

 

TASK THREE:

Design a poster to help you remember which strategies for working help you, and all the things you need to avoid.

Make it eye-catching as your ideas may help other people on their learning journey!

Setting goals to help me achieve my best!

                                                                                   

How are you finding home schooling? 

 

 

Are you getting up and getting dressed in the morning, or are you working in your PJs?

Are you setting yourself a timetable (and keeping to it), or are you taking it one day at a time and working when it suits you?

Is it easy to get distracted, surrounded by your toys and screens?

 

There is no right answer - we are all having to learn in different ways!  But how do you know if you are having a successful day when you are on your own at home, without your friends or teachers to work with you?

It is important that we work out what we need to get done every day, and make a plan of how we can achieve that.  Then we can set a goal.

 

But what is a goal?  (And I don’t mean in football!)

 

A goal is something you really want!  You might have to work really hard to get it, but then you will be able to celebrate when you achieve it.  If it is too easy to reach your goal, it won’t have been a challenge and you won’t feel any success on getting there.

Sometimes we have to continue to work hard at a task in order to achieve our goal, even when we would prefer to be playing or messing about having fun.

Do you play an instrument?  You won’t get better without practice!

Do you want to be a world class footballer?  Then you will need to train every day!

Can you speak a different language?  You have to talk to people to remember the words!

 

Is it easy to motivate ourselves? 

 

 

 

No, it isn’t always easy, so we make strategies to try and stay on the right path.  Sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t.  We all respond to different things.  What strategies could you use to help you to persevere and achieve your goal? 

 

Try:

  • keeping the goal in mind;
  • remembering the big picture;
  • saying encouraging things to yourself;
  • imagining the end result;
  • setting yourself a reward for finishing the task;
  • setting yourself a time challenge.

 

If you find it easy to get distracted, don’t worry, we are going to think about the excuses we use to distract ourselves from our learning journey.

 

TASK ONE:

Talk to the people around you about things you would like to do better by the end of this week.  Then focus on one idea.  Make that your weekly goal.

But it isn’t enough to know what you want to achieve.  How will you know if you have improved?  What does success look like?

 

You may choose to get better at your times tables success could mean that you do ten minutes of TT Rockstars every day and mark it off on a chart, or maybe you can show that you have mastered a new times table!

You may want to become a better speller success may be learning ten new words per week.

You may want to improve your concentration does success mean that you finish tasks before you go and play, or do you prefer to set a time limit on your tasks.

Maybe your goal is not linked to school work. Maybe your goal is not to argue with a sister or brother, or to do a job for your family without being asked.

 

Now write down your weekly goal.  Don’t make it too difficult to achieve, but don’t make it so easy that it doesn’t require any effort.

If you want to, you could let us know what you are promising to try, but you are making this for yourself, not for us!

Old- Green- Grasshopper: I’m famished.

Ladybird: Me too.

Centipede: (rises from the sofa) Everyone is hungry! Everyone is famished.  We need food.

If you have access to a garden, great!  Go and look at the early Spring plants and find one that you can draw or stop on your walk and look at some.If you are not able to get outside, look at a picture of a plant and draw it.

 

 

What parts of the plant can you see?  We would love to see some bright and cheerful pictures of flowers! 

We will be super-impressed if you can label the parts of the plant that you can see!

 

 

Science -TASK THREE        

If you can get outside, why don’t you become a NATURE DETECTIVE.  Note down all of the signs that show that Spring has arrived!

 

     See how many different types of insects you can spot which are visiting flowers.   Jot down the numbers in a tally chart (like our house point chart).  It’s a bit early in the year so   don’t get upset if you don’t see many.  You could repeat this task in the summer to compare.

Bug Hotel

 

Have you got something forgotten in the garage or loft, an old bedside cabinet, maybe some pallets or an old cupboard?


Build your very own luxury bug hotel and create a safe hideaway for wildlife such as solitary bees, bumblebees, ladybirds and woodlice.  This will help attract wildlife to your garden not just the bugs but the birds, hedgehogs and other animals in the food chain!


Ideally pick a spot that catches both sun and shade throughout the day.

 

Include things like;

  • Dead wood & loose bark for creepy crawlies like beetles & centipedes.
  • Holes and small tubes (not plastic) for solitary bees made from bamboo, reeds or drilled logs.  Use a 5mm drill bit and make each hole as deep as you can.
  • Larger holes with stones and tiles to provide the cool damp conditions frogs and toads like. 
  •  Dry leaves, sticks or straw for ladybirds (who eat aphids) and other beetles and bugs.
  • Corrugated cardboard for lacewings (their larvae eat aphids).
  • Dry leaves which mimic a natural forest floor.

 This is the perfect project for the whole family to get stuck into.

Nightingale hospital in London is open and ready to help the UK and NHS deal with the growing demand of coronavirus.

But while this is an uncertain time for many, the NHS staff and creators of the centre have a job for our children to help cheer everyone up - rainbow pictures.

Why are people putting rainbow pictures in their windows during coronavirus pandemic?

They want rainbows for Nightingale hospital to decorate the place in order to keep all the patients smiling while they get over the virus.

So what exactly is it you need to do? And what address should you send the rainbows for Nightingale to? Here’s everything you need to know:

NHS rainbows: Volunteers are helping to gather the pictures for the Excel centre. Picture: NHS Nightingale/Facebook

Rainbows for Nightingale: What do you need to do

You and your little ones need to get crafty with an A4 piece of paper creating your prettiest rainbows and messages of positivity.

There’s no restrictions on how many you draw and they’re encouraging you to write messages of hope or well wishes on them too.

If possible, they’re asking all pictures be laminated, for germ purposes, before sending but don’t worry if not, the volunteers for the programme can also do it.

Because plants all have different needs, some have evolved to live in specific locations.

  • What sort of plants can live in a hot desert?  What adaptations do they have to enable them to survive?
  • What plants would you find in an Arctic region? What is special about plants in cold climates?
  • How have plants adapted to suit a wet rainforest, where the sky is hidden by tall, thick tree foliage?
  • What happens to plants in windy locations, like on The Burren in Ireland or in Iceland?

See if you can research some of these different climates and the plant life you can find there.

Science - Useful video link What Plants Need to Survive:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/Mf5rhbTkHLZ3fbJzScyDvC/primary-science-plants

 

Just like humans, plants need certain things to be able to live!  Different plants need different amounts of the following:

  • a plant needs to be able to breathe;
  • a plant needs moisture;
  • a plant needs nutrients;
  • a plant needs light.

 

Research what happens to a plant if they get too much or too little of any of the above.

For example, most plants need some watering, but what happens if you water too little?  And will the plant be happy if you give it hundreds of litres of water?

What would happen if you kept a plant in a dark cupboard?  And would it be affected if it was in brilliant sunshine 24 hours a day?

 

Can you do something helpful around the house? Maybe play games with your younger sibling, tidy up, dry up or help make dinner?

Welcome to Year 3 

On this page we shall share with you the current term's topic, important dates and general information.

 

Staff

The class teachers in Year 3 are Miss Boulain (Year 3 Year Leader and 3B class teacher), Miss Menditta (3M) and Miss Page (3P).

 

P.E.

P.E. will usually be on Mondays (3M/3P),  Wednesdays (all classes) and Thursday (3B).  Please ensure your child has kit and a change of footwear for outside games in school all week as sometimes we have extra P.E. sessions. 

 

Homework

Homework will be set on a Friday and should be handed in by the next Wednesday.  This allows children the weekend and some extra time to complete tasks, as well as time for teachers to mark homework.  Work will consolidate learning in class and provides an opportunity for your child to share his/her learning with you at home.

Homework usually includes: 

* spellings to be learned or a spelling task

* reading task 

* one other task; either Maths, Literacy or Topic.

Please note no homework was given out on 6/9/19 . 

 

Library

Please do not forget that we visit the library every Tuesday  You will need to bring both your library books in on this day to change or renew.  Thank you!

 

Classroom helpers

We would very much like you to come in and support the learning of our children.  Whether you have a passion for numbers or enjoy sharing books with children, we would love to hear from you.  Any time you can spare is valuable.  Please speak to your child's class teacher.
