***Mental Health Awareness Week***
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, where it is more important than ever to recognise how we can be kind to others and ourselves.
Take yourself to the PSHE/Jigsaw page where Miss Fallaize has kindly put some activities about mental health.
Well done to everyone who has won a certificate this week! You have really impressed me with your efforts, resilience, positivity and work ethic- I am very proud of you.
Some others of you were also very close to winning a certificate this week and I want you to continue to work hard! I may award you the certificate next Friday for various reasons, including your positivity, your creativity at home, for playing on TT rockstars every day, for keeping busy and thinking of different things that you can do at home or for working hard with your home learning and trying your best. Remember that you can use the contact button to send me your work or some of the things that you have done at home.
Have a lovely weekend!

Welcome to the Year 3 Squirrels!
My name is Miss Daley and I am delighted to be teaching the Year 3 Squirrels this year. Miss Vallimulla and Mrs Sargent will also be helping us in Year 3. At the bottom of our class page, you will find lots of important information such as our class bulletin, homework grid, curriculum overview and lots of useful websites to support learning.
* PE - Our PE day has changed to Wednesday, however, it is important that PE kits are in school at all times.
* School Library - The Squirrels are timetabled to visit the school library every Tuesday lunchtime. Don't forget to pick up a loyalty card for the chance to win a new book from the SMSJ bookshop!
* Homework is given out every Wednesday and should be returned on Monday. All children have a homework book with a homework grid for the half term. Homework includes: home reading (3 parent signatures required), spellings (test every Monday), TTRockstars and one other piece to be completed.
* Swimming - Swimming will take place every Thursday morning, so please make sure children bring in their swimming kit.
Our value this half term is LOVE. I wonder if you could create a poem or picture about our value.
This half term, we will be learning...
We will be reading parts of different playscripts and watching videos and create our own mini playscript. We are also going to create our own information poster or booklet about the romans. Keep following the online learning to find out more.
This half term we will be following the White rose maths home learning section (Year 3). Please follow this link: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/. We will be looking at a variety of maths to ensure your child is ready to continue their learning when schools reopen. For example; the first 3 weeks will consist of fractions, money and conversion and multiplication and division. Keep an eye on the daily learning tasks to know which lesson to complete.
History and Geography
Our topic this half term is 'What the Romans did for us' and in history we will look at what life was like before the roman invasion, why the romans chose Britain for their settlement, who Boudica is and why she is an important figure from the past and how the romans changed life in Britain.
In Geography, we will be looking at a region of the United Kingdom that is different to Blackburn. We will focus on the Lake District and compare and contrast the similarities and differences of the two places and look at any environmental issues that these places have.
For the whole of the summer term, we will be investigating plants and how plants reproduce, function, make food and their life cycles. Please look at the knowledge organiser below.
