Hello Year 3,
I hope you are all okay and enjoying the half term break, as best as possible.
Here are some photos of the things I have been up to so far. On Saturday, I was invited to be part of the Virtual Audience on the Voice Kids. There were lots of children auditioning for their place on the show. You may see me on the telly around Christmas time. I have also been taking my new puppy, Obi, for lots of walks around the local area. He is really enjoying exploring out and about and making lots of dog friends. There is a photograph below of Obi on Valentines Day. Yesterday, I celebrated Pancake Day. Pancake Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, marks the start of lent on Ash Wednesday. It was often tradition for those celebrating Lent to eat plenty of pancakes on this day as a means of getting rid of fatty foods prior to the 40-day fasting period of Lent. I will be giving up chcolate for the next 40 days, will you be giving up anything too?
What have you been up to this week? You can send your photos via email with the subject ‘Miss Underwood’ to firstname.lastname@example.org or send them directly to me on Class Dojo.
On Monday home learning will resume and the Year 3 timetable can be found here – https://homelearning.rushallict.co.uk/year-3. I know how tricky it can be to complete your work at home but you have all continued to amaze and impress me with everything you have been doing. I also owe a big thank you to your grown ups for everything they are doing to help and support you.
Stay safe and see you all soon,
Miss Underwood x
Over half term Fletcher completed his Sir Captain Tom – 100 Challenge. As way of remembering Captain Tom, I set you all a challenge of doing 100 of something. Fletcher decided he would complete 100 penalty shootouts. Unfortunately, the video was far too long for his Mom to capture all 100, but here are the last 5 Fletcher completed.
Jacob has been learning to ride his new bike. His Mom has been so impressed with his effort. After a few practise pedals, Jacob soon picked up the hang of it and has been spending time at the skate park.
Jenson has also had a new addition to his house. Zena, the German Shepherd, is only 11 weeks old! Jenson has enjoyed looking after and caring for Zena, ensuring she settles in well.
Nicky has been really busy over the last few weeks! He and his family are in the middle of having their new house built. Nicky has even been on hand to help his Dad with some of the work. Your new bedroom looks lovely Nicky!
