Class 3 - Opal

Monday 30th March - Good Morning Opal Class!


I hope that you all had lovely weekends with your families and are now getting used to the situation.  Remember - it won't last forever and we all need to stay inside to ensure that more people don't get sick.  You are all amazing and I am so proud of you!


I am adding some Maths work on Time for you to complete over the next couple of days.  Telling the time is very tricky so I'd like you all to practice telling the time whenever you look at the clock.  I will add some resources to help you do this.


Please continue with the English challenges I set last week - I will repost these just in case! - and keep reading, practicing spellings and handwriting everyday.  Your Mathletics should also be completed daily.



Happy birthday yesterday to Amelie-Mae!  Hope you had a fantastic day!!



Have a good morning and remember to keep your bedrooms tidy and to make your beds!!wink


Stay safe,

 Mrs Simpson and Mrs Saunderssmiley

Good Afternoon Opal Class!


I hope that you've all had a nice morning and did well in the Times Table Test!  I will add some more work on Monday morning but in the meantime I hope that you all have a lovely relaxing weekend.


I have added some pictures of Mabel for you to see.  She is loving having us all at home but getting very tired with all the walks that she is getting!!


Enjoy spending time with your families!


Stay safe!

Friday 27th March - Good Morning Opal Class!'s been one are we all doing?


I hope that you've got into a good routine with work and play - it is really important to keep to this routine as it will help you through the next few weeks when we're not at school.  I have started running each morning - I go early with Mabel so there is no-one in the park and I am not putting me or my family at risk.  It's actually really nice and sets me up for the day smiley


Speaking of routines - if it's Friday that must mean it's Times Tables Test Day!


1. 8 x 5 =                                                      6.  8 x 8 =

2. 9 x 4 =                                                     7.  4 x 5 =

3. 11 x 6 =       (this one's for you Max!)       8.  7 x 7 =

4. 6 x 8 =                                                      9.  12 x 12 =           (this one's for you Nevaan!)

5. 12 x 7 =                                                    10. 9 x 6 =


Remember you might like to go on to practice you times tables!


Have a great morning!

Mrs Simpson and of course, Mrs Saunders! smiley


Good Afternoon Opal Class!


I hope you've all had nice mornings!  


This afternoon I would like you to draw what you can see out of your window.  The sun is shining and the colours are beautiful so it would be nice if you could colour in your picture using crayons, pencils or even paint!  You could write a description of what you draw - remember to use adjectives (describing words) to describe what you can see. 

For example, The fat, black cat is sitting underneath the thorny, overgrown bush.


Have fun!

Thursday 26th March - Good Morning Opal Class!


Another lovely sunny day - although it is a bit chilly outside!


Remember to help your Mums and Dads during this difficult time.  At the very least I would expect you to be making your bed and keeping your bedroom tidy every day!!  I am sure that most of you are doing this anyway wink


I hope that you are reading, practicing your spellings and handwriting every day!


Today, I have attached a maths website which might give your parents a little break!!


I hope that you are enjoying your Joe Wicks daily workout and listening to David Walliams reading one of his stories at 11 o'clock every day.


Keep smiling!

Good Afternoon Opal Class!


I hope that you have all had a productive morning.  It is such a beautiful day that it would be lovely to spend some time outside in your garden or go for a walk.  Remember to keep a safe distance from anyone who you meet - you can still say 'Hello!' though!

Mabel has been playing with the football that she found in the park - I thought you would like to see a picture of her!


Enjoy the sunshine and stay safe,

Missing you all loads,

Mrs Simpson and of course Mrs Saunders!
