Hi Year 3,

Thank you all for your hard work this week and all your emails that really cheer me up. I also love the photographs you send of you work and the fun things you have been doing. Check out the work pages here on the website but also keep up with Education city and 10ticks. This week I received a book review from Conrad and I read the book, it is really great and I thought you could read it yourself. Have a good week and keep up the good work.

I hope you are all able to access Education City and 10ticks as well as finding the work on this website. I moss you all and I am sure you have all grown so much.

Hi Year 3,

If we were in school together we would have been celebrating ‘Share a Pencil Day’. We usually love this day as it teaches us about how some children do not have the things we have. The people at share a pencil day have produced some things that we can do at home and I thought it might be good if you were the teacher and you taught your family about this special day. Here are the things you might need to teach your lesson.

Good luck,

Take care and stay safe.

Hi Year 3,

I have received lots of emails asking for logins for Education city so I hope you have fun using it. Mrs Broderick has sent me this link to another brilliant website so have a look. I know lots of children will love it as I have already received lots of photos of outdoor activities you have been doing.

I have also received this from our friends at Manchester Central Library and I am very sorry but I forgot to put it on. You may be able to find the newest ones if you look but the ideas are really good and I know you love our library visits.

Whilst schools are currently closed to most pupils Manchester Libraries have started a newsletter for children and families with links to different events and activities happening online. This week’s newsletter can be found here.
If you wish to catch up on the previous two they can be found at manclibraries.blog

Hi Year 3,
Well I hope you had a lovely Easter it has been very different this year as Church was closed. We had to join in the special Easter Masses by watching on the internet. My family is okay and I hope that your families are all well. I understand how hard the last few weeks have been and I am sure you are all missing your friends. I know a few of you keep in touch with each other by using Facetime but remember if you want to send an email to tell your friends how you are and what you have ben doing then I will try to put it on our page on the website. At the moment we still don’t know when we will all be back together but for now we will continue our learning this way so that you are all safe at home. 

I have chosen the stars of the week for the first two weeks and will be adding to this until we are all back together. I will continue to add work to the website and hope you are trying to complete some of this. You can send me pictures of the things you are doing. If you and your adukts have found any really good websites then you could email me and tell me about them and I will try to add them to the website. 

You can also continue to log in to 10 ticks, keep reading (You can read anything as long as you enjoy it) and try to look at the Year 3 spellings and set yourself a little spelling test each week.
If you need anything please email me on the class email and I will answer you as soon as I can.

Stay safe and keep in touch,

Mrs Corcoran

Hi Year 3,
Well I have really missed you already and I know it must be strange for you not being at school with your friends. I have missed our chats and the funny things you say and do. I have also struggled without all your help as I am having to remember things for myself and use the computer without your fingers crossed. You have all been extremely grown up over the last couple of weeks and I can’t wait to see you all again.

I really want you to keep working hard and checking the school website regularly so that you keep learning. I would love it if you sent me some photographs to our class email address of the things you have been getting up to. You could also send me an email telling me what else you would like me to put on the website. I know you must be missing your friends so if you want to send a message email me and I will try to put them on our class page.

I can’t wait to see your scores on 10ticks and when we get back to school we will look at the certificates you have earned. Try to have some fun as you learn and remember you can do anything if you try. I will keep you and your families in my prayers and please keep me in yours. Be kind to each other at home and I hope to see you again very soon so that we can have lots more fun together.
Stay safe

Hi Year 3,

I can’t believe it has only been one week since I last saw some of you. It feels like such a long time since we were together but I know you are all being so sensible. I am trying to put some new things on the website regularly and have received a couple of emails telling me what you are doing. I would love to get some more and you can send me pictures if you like. If you do send an email please ask your parents if I can put it on the website so that all your friends can see them. 

I hope you are also having some fun and spending time in the sunshine in your garden. As you all know my garden is my favourite place and I have spent some time weeding and planting. I miss you all lots and as I said in my last note I am keeping you and your families in my prayers. I have been in school today and the fish are fine but I do think they are missing you!!!

If we were together at school our topic would be ‘Edible Garden’ however this might be difficult to do at home at the moment because you need seeds. I hope we will get time to do this topic when we get back together. 

I hope to hear from you soon,

Mrs C
