We Are a Bucket Filling Class!

What a wonderful week Year 3 have had settling back into school! We have been working on routines, reflecting on our lockdown experiences and learning about our whole school value of this term – ‘Caring’.

We read the story, ‘Have You Filled a Bucket Today?’ by Carol McCloud. The story is about the invisible buckets that everyone carries around with them. When we are kind and care about our others, we add love to their bucket and they add love to ours.  However, if we do anything that is unkind then love comes out of our buckets.

Together, we discussed the behaviours that would be bucket filling and the behaviours that would be bucket dipping. The children all agreed that they would all rather be bucket fillers than bucket dippers.

Come and have a look at our Bucket Filling display in Year 3, with ideas of how you can be a bucket filler!

Welcome Back!

Hello Year 3,

I hope you have had a great summer break! I cannot wait to hear about some of the exciting things you have been up to.

This time next week we will all be back in school together, starting our first day in Year 3. You might be feeling excited, worried or a bit a both. There is no right or wrong way for you to feel about returning to school but just remember that me and Mrs Watts will be so happy to see your smiling faces again!

As you have probably guessed, our school and classroom will look a little bit different to what we are used too. In the corridors, markers have been placed to help you keep a safe distance, as you walk through school. We will be working as a Year 3 bubble, which means that we will be work together, eat together, play together and have lots of fun together. As a bubble we will have the Year 3 classroom to work in, the music room and our outdoor areas. Below are some photos of our new classroom.

See you next week.

Happy Holidays!

Hello Year 3!

I hope you and your families are still keeping safe and well and you are enjoying the six weeks holidays so far.

Me and Mrs Watts are so excited to see you in September. We have spent some time in school preparing our classroom, ready for your return. I will take some photos to show you, once it is ready.

I am currently in Gran Canaria, having a lovely time, relaxing in the sun. The weather has been beautiful so I have been spending lots of time in the swimming pool to cool down. Below are some photos from my holiday so far.

On Friday, Mrs Watts also jetted off, travelling to Kos, one of the Greek islands. Yesterday she caught a bus to explore the local town. Here are some of her photos.

If you want to share any photos, please email them to me or you can send them over the Class Dojo app.

I can’t wait to hear from you!

See you soon,

Miss Underwood and Mrs Watts x
