During these unusual times our teachers are thinking of new ways to connect with their classes, this is increasingly involving new technology! Please understand that our teachers are working hard to regularly set work for children online and to virtually monitor and possibly interact with the children. This may look slightly different for each class at the moment, as each teacher is navigating their own journey with this new technology. Therefore, we ask that you continue to be supportive during these unprecedented times and not necessarily expect instant replies to queries and understand that sometimes feedback may just be a "like or a smiley face"! If we all work together we will come through this stronger and with an increased sense of community! Happy learning!


Welcome to the Barracudas Class page

Term 5


Each week, the Year 3 team will be updating their website page so that parents, carers and children can access new online learning. Please do what you can but there is no set rule on how or what should be completed. Hopefully, the guidance given each week will help keep everyone busy, happy and learning.

All children have been issued with exercise books to work in. They have their Purple Mash, Read Theory and Times Table Rockstars logins to help them with daily reading and maths practise.

This week, we are still continuing with the poetry activity.

“Look out of your window, even if all you can see is buildings, nature is all round you: the air and the clouds constantly changing are created by the life of our planet. Look at your face in the mirror, your hand holding the pen, evolution gave you a face, a hand that can hold a pen, a brain that can think. And evolution is the history of nature, a story that connects us all to each other and to every living thing alive now and that has been alive in the long journey of our planet.”

Your Rye Writer's Task this week is to write a poem of any length or genre. The only requirement is that it has to be based on nature. Resources have been included below to help you get ideas, plan and write your poem. Please remember to share these with us on our Dojo page!

This is completely optional, but we have ‘reading from home’ certificates that can be awarded virtually for those that participate.

Read with Ted

If you would like to join in the Book Club are also asking parents if they would like to take a photo or a video of your child reading with their favourite cuddly toy, and tweet it to @inspireschools1 with the hashtag #ReadWithTed. There’s going to be a special ‘prize’ awarded to the Book Clubs' favourites and a shoutout from Ted on the Book Club blog! Alternatively you can always send on the picture to me, and I can share it through the Portal.

Week 5 (04.05.20): Evacuee Teddy

Friday 8th May is VE day. This marks the day when it was formally announced that World War Two had finished, with fighting ceased in Europe. During WW2, many children were evacuated. This is when they travelled to safer countryside locations. Every evacuee was given food, a gas mask and a toy to keep with them. Often this toy would be a cuddly teddy bear. 

Write a diary entry. This can be written from the point of view of either the bear itself, or a child carrying the teddy – it is up to you. Imagine you have been evacuated from your home, and have set off to travel to a new area. How would you be feeling? What ‘home-comforts’ would you miss? Can you describe your journey? Include powerful and emotive language.

Writing

To help you with your writing, please find below the link to the live lessons 

https://www.youtube.com/user/Devouefrenchbulldogs

To help the children continue to grow as writers and improve their writing skills, they can take part in these daily (live) writing lessons. The sessions are led by Jane Considine, who devised the writing approach we have adopted at Rye Primary School. The aim is to write a story with all the children in the UK every day. The sessions start each day with a short lesson and instructions at 9.45 am. Then you can watch the movie of the day and choose a chunk to write nine fantastic sentences. The deadline for entries is 2 pm each day.  A round up of entries and the finished story will be shared on YouTube at 3.30 pm.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMVpipnXrDc Short video from Jane, explaining how the sessions work. 

PE

Join the nation doing PE with Joe at 9:00 am every day!

Premier Sports, who provide our school PE provision with Mr Sayer each week,  are releasing a daily video at 3:30pm on their YouTube channel. The idea is that this can act as an after school home learning activity and replace the exercise children would normally get during extra-curricular clubs. Sessions will focus on activities including dance, football, fitness, gymnastics, basketball, tennis and yoga and more. So far they have filmed five weeks’ worth of content, and sessions include “Personal Best’ challenges so they can be completed again and again as children keep trying to improve.
