thursday 2nd april

Good morning!

I have just found out it is Lucy's birthday - SO FROM ALL OF US - HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCY!!!!

So how many of you were the subject of a April fool yesterday?  Thankfully all safe in our house, with no-one thinking of any jokes to play but if did please let me know.

Looks like the sun is going to be out so hopefully you can get some fresh air and maybe some exercise with your family today maybe you could find yourself an unusual location to read in to add to our ever growing picture competition?

So far Frankie has been seen sitting in his garden, Lilah has been seen on the stairs, I've been on the trampoline and my youngest Cadel even sat in the cupboard!  Whilst Max and his dad have transformed a massage table, Alice found herself a den in a tent, whilst Emily stayed in bed!... Can you show me any more unusual locations?

Don't forget to today is your last chance to gain a few extra points on TT, master a few levels on IXL or to add those words when taking an AR quiz in order to get on our Top 10's, lets see if you can have more children on the list than last week! Apparently, there is also a new Duolingo Top 10 list too - so good luck!

I haven't seen many cubes or RE storyboards to add to these subject pages this week.  We have had some excellent examples already, can you rise to the challenge and improve on the ones we have already?  I did get lots of emails from you though - but have you sent one to a friend in the class yet? I am sure they would love to hear from you.

Lastly, be great to hear your ideas for another class competition we could run and send photos of in - I look forward to hearing what we could do..

Have a great day everyone

yesterdays SUPER READING!

Well done to Ethan, Louis & Jacob who have all read and quizzed another book each - great work gentlemen, surely they will be on this weeks Top Ten list.

Who will be on this list today - can you add your name??? 

 

Can't wait to hear from you... who will be first?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

wednesday 1st april

New month - no April fooling people please!

So how have you been getting on with your learning?  I had quite a few emails yesterday from our class, nice to hear from those of you who had been a bit quiet until then so thank you for showing me your work and sending me an overview of what you have been doing.  It's your spelling test today - Good Luck!  

Just in case you missed Maaya's great question from yesterday I am going to leave it hear for today too:

I have had a great question asked by Maaya concerning sending in work and how to get the house points allocated on the home learning sheet.  I think the best way forward would be to do the following (If you can) send me an email daily listing what you have managed to complete / had fun doing that day.  If you would like me to look at anything in particular or want to show me something you are proud of then also send me pictures - no need to show me a picture of everything.  Once you complete the Home learning task in full - you can allocate yourself the house-points (no need to wait for me!)- I would keep a log of these inside your front cover, so that they are easier to add up when you come back to school.

Maays's mum has found an even easier way  since asking - printing off the daily home learning sheet and highlighting what has been completed, then sending me a copy at the end of the day.  Maybe you would like to magpie this idea?

Hope that helps to clarify.

 

tuesday 31st march

Good Morning!

Bit of a later start for me today, only at the computer though as have already had to complete my daily Joe Wicks PE lesson - have you?

I hope you enjoyed your message from Miss Ring yesterday - looks like she can bake / cook really well, so delicious.  If you missed it remember to check out our daily welcome archive page on the right.

So I thought I would join in our reading from unusual locations challenge - my my new pictures below.  Can you get find any more unusual locations?

So far Frankie has been seen sitting in his garden, Lilah has been seen on the stairs...

I have also been getting so much work from you that it is getting really hard to keep up with all my other work.  For this reason I won't be able to put everything up on the website that you send through to me, but I will of course be reading and making a log of what you have been up to so that I don't forget.  I will also use this when making a decision about how to award the weekly bright spark too.

Lastly, Congratulations goes to Lucy - winner of our decorating the front cover of the home learning book who has just earnt herself 50HP and some chocolate which we will be delivering to her!

Here is her winning masterpiece...

Don't forget - Mr Gilbert sent the following message last week but I have only heard from a handful of children, if you haven't yet sent me a message can I ask you to do so please?

yesterdays SUPER READING!

Well done to Louis, Alice & Lilah who all read and quizzed a book each - great work.

Who will be on this list today - can you add your name??? 

IMPORTANT UPDATE

Hello children.  You should all be familiar with your own individual school email accounts – you have practised using these at school during Computing sessions.  You may not remember how to use these – Mr Miller has written some helpful guidance for you.  Click the image below to see the guidance.  Following this guidance, please ensure by the end of the week (Friday 3.15pm) you have emailed your class teacher – even if it’s just to say hello.  This will help tell us who is reading these pages and knows how to use their email.  Emails are a great way for you to speak with other children and your teacher.  If you get stuck, use the year group support email on the Year X Daily Learning page.  We look forward to hearing from you!

monday 30th march

Good Morning 3ML and welcome to Week 2!  You should feel really proud of all your hard work last week, I have had such a lovely time reading all your work and seeing what you have been up to!

Miss Ring has a message for you!

Hello, all hope you are all having super fun just wanted to say you're all amazing!  I thought I’d let you all know what I’ve been up to . Over  the last few days I’ve spent my time making scones ... oh they were so yummy haha . I have also been trying to make a dish from a different county once a week this week was Hungarian goulash. I have also been learning how to speak Spanish . Today I plan to do some pottery I’m  hoping to make a bowl I will send pics :) what colour should I paint it ? I hope to hear from you soon .

Over the weekend I have had to resort on wii bowling with the family - I am not that great but always have a go! I also started PE with Joe Wicks (not sure a photo of this would be suitable - might make you laugh too much and went for a run, question is can I keep it up?  I will let you know!

friday 27th march

TOP TEN DAY!!!

Good morning, so you have nearly made it through one week of home learning, that is something to celebrate- well done everyone - remember just do what you can and try your best.

So lots to celebrate today - please head over to the Top 10s tab in the blue box on the right hand side to see if you have made the list!  You will also find a breakdown of the minimum number of skills you each need to master each week from your class target cards, as well as who has managed to get the highly sought after 100HP for reaching your personal reading target.

I am so proud of all the effort that many of you have been putting in this week, I know it hasn't been easy for you or your families - now it's the weekend have some fun-just like Lilah has been doing this week, check out her Fairy house! 25HP.

 

thursday 26th march

Good Morning 3ML!

I have had so much work come through that we have changed the website to fit it all on! If you look over to the right, there is a title called 'Also in this section' - it then has a list of all of our subjects plus competitions and Top Tens - I will be printing them off first thing in the morning! From today onwards, all the work that goes up will be going into each subject area. So, if you send me in some map work, it will go under 'Geography'. If you send me in a skeleton diagram, it will go under 'Science'. Make sure to check it out and see how the rest of our class are doing. I'm really enjoying all the photos you've been sending in so please don't stop! 

Your school emails should be up and running and there is an update from Mr Gilbert below as to how to use them. Any issues, message me and I will try and sort it out. Have a fantastic day 3ML, you are all doing so well and I am so very proud of all of you. Oh, one more thing...Star of the Week will be happening tomorrow so if there is anything you are particularly proud of then please send it in.

wednesday 25th march

It's another beautiful day outside, so lets start the day with a huge smile on our faces and be thankful that we have the opportunity to join in the fun learning and get creative with our responses!

You guys are doing so well  I can't believe how many emails and pictures I have had already so keep going!  I hear that Mr Gilbert is trying to beat our AR Word count and knock us off the top spot, so please keep reading and quizzing, you have worked so hard to get there.

Just in case you had forgotten, I will be printing off the Top 10's on Friday morning and as usual celebrating with all of you awarding house points for your positions and effort.  In the meantime don't forgot to send me pictures of your decorated front covers and pictures of unusual reading places!

Today, I have already heard from Ayra, Alice, Max and Maaya - some just sending me lovely messages others showing me their great work, I would love to hear from more of you.  Yesterday, I sent each of you a message to your @chesswood.org.uk email address so if you get a chance maybe reply to me, like in our computing lessons.

 

tuesday 24th march

Good Morning! I hope you have woken up and are ready for another exciting day of learning?  If you feel a little reluctant then don't forget you can jump into action from 9am with Joe Wicks body coach on his live stream - we will be getting put through the same with our very own Mr Quick and Mr Haggart!

Lots of you have been starting to send me messages, it's so lovely to hear from you, I especially love seeing all your great work so am hoping to get some more in today which I can share with the class.

Monday 23rd March

Hello 3ML - I haven't forgotten you!

Mrs Lucas here... school is very quiet without you all in class, but after a lovely weekend we are working away through our home learning as I hope you are too?  We have spent a lot of time prepping activities and I'd love to see photos/videos of you taking part in these learning activities. I'd also love to see your set up at home - will you make a timetable like ours in class?! This will help to keep your day structured and stop those of you who get distracted from playing all day! :D Have you got your home learning book ready? PLEASE remember to write the date and underline it, I will still be checking that you are remembering your capital letters for the proper nouns and neat presentation including using a ruler, particularly for maths if you don't have squared paper, don't think you've got it easy now you're in your PJs and not school uniform!
