Year 3 Wow Wall


With only 2 more weeks to go, we have been blown away by the amount of amazing work that has been sent in once again. Your mystery stories in particular have been a pleasure to read so well done! A special mention this week goes out to Abhinav for his amazing recreation of Paul Gaugin's art work. The key worker children were so inspired by his use of colour, that they then produced their own masterpieces! 

We hope everyone is keeping safe and you are looking forward to new beginnings in Year 4. Hopefully everyone has found out their new teachers now. If not, then look on the website and check parent mail. You will have a familiar face with Mrs Jones moving up with you! We will of course miss you but I am sure we will see you around the school on a daily basis.

Hello again,
This week, the weather has been very changeable! We hope you have managed to get outside and have not been caught in the downpours! It has been lovely talking to some of you on the telephone and hearing about your activities and learning at home. Only two more weeks till the holidays!

Thank you to the children who sent in their pictures this week. Here are a selection of them. We have been very impressed with your creativity and crafting!

























































Some fabulous work – well done everyone.

You will now know who your teacher will be in year 6. We are sure you are all feeling very excited – and a little nervous maybe! Today, you will receive a message that will allow you to access a recorded message from your new teacher via the school website. We hope you enjoy watching them.

Next Friday would have been the school’s sports day. Many of you have been practising your PE skills at home and some of you have been taking part in the senior school sports challenge, https://twitter.com/alderwood_pe so this week, we would like you to send in pictures of yourself  being active in any way you can, for us to display on the blog next week.

We hope you have a good week and enjoy the activities that have been set.

Year 3 Wow Wall

We come to the end of another amazing week. Not only have we had some superb work being sent in, we have had other photos showing the wonderful things you are doing at home! From horse riding, to making cakes and constructing revolting sandwiches, it looks like you have been having fun on top of the home learning you have been doing. Leighton, in 3J, has been busy learning about different countries from around the world. This week, he has been learning all about Japan and even making origami which isn't an easy thing to do. Well done Leighton!
We hope you have all had a lovely week and managed to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. We have been trying to keep cool in school despite the scorching temperatures. 

Remember, you are all super stars and we are so proud of your achievements!

It has been lovely to speak to some of you this week and to hear what you have been doing during the lockdown.  If we have not yet been in contact, we will be in the next week or so. 
Thank you to those children who have been sending in examples of their work from the home learning packs and other fun activities at home. Here are pictures of some of the work we have received.





















I’m sure you will agree that William’s cake looks fabulous!
