We hope you’ve had a lovely relaxed weekend and are ready for another week of home learning.
We will still be updating the blog every day with English, Maths and wider curriculum tasks at 9am.
You also have your home learning packs which we sent home.
Don’t forget, we don’t expect you to be doing school work all day, every day!
It’s important that you take regular breaks and, if you can, go outside and enjoy the sunshine.
If you can’t, Joe Wicks will be on his Youtube channel every day with a P.E. lesson that everyone can do.
Find them here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
We look forward to seeing your responses throughout the week.
Mrs Beckwith, Miss Lindop, Miss Barden and Miss Willmer.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit
Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter. They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big fir-tree.
“Now, my dears,” said old Mrs. Rabbit one morning, “you may go into the fields or down the lane, but don’t go into Mr. McGregor’s garden: your Father had an accident there; he was put in a pie by Mrs. McGregor.”
“Now run along, and don’t get into mischief. I am going out.” Then old Mrs. Rabbit took a basket and her umbrella, and went through the wood to the baker’s. She bought a loaf of brown bread and five currant buns.
Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail, who were good little bunnies, went down the lane to gather blackberries; but Peter, who was very naughty, ran straight away to Mr. McGregor’s garden, and squeezed under the gate! First he ate some lettuces and some French beans; and then he ate some radishes; and then, feeling rather sick, he went to look for some parsley. But round the end of a cucumber frame, whom should he meet but Mr. McGregor!
Mr. McGregor was on his hands and knees planting out young cabbages, but he jumped up and ran after Peter, waving a rake and calling out, “Stop thief!”

Very important mission:
Year 3 have been sent a VERY important mission and we would love for as many people as possible to join in with this.
As you know, we are experiencing a very strange time right now and for some people they are going through this alone without any family or friends around them.
Last week, we were asked if we could do something great for the elderly community in Northampton.
Year 3 have been given an address of a lovely elderly person who lives in a care home and we would love for you to send wonderful pictures, cards and letters to this address through the post to help them through this tough time and put a smile on their face.
All you will need is some pens, paper, an envelope and a stamp!
We would love to see pictures of you drawing or writing letters and then posting them into a post box either on the comments or to our year group email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Siblings and other relatives are welcome to join in too.
Year 3 teachers will be joining in with this in the hope that everyone does too!
Here’s the address:
Spencer House Care Home
Room Number 21
The Cheerful Little Letter Project
We look forward to seeing your pictures and letters being posted!
British Sign Language:
Every day at 1pm, Natasha and her sister will be teaching the nation some British Sign Language on Youtube.
They started last week, so you might want to catch up on those videos before you join in today.
Follow this link to find her Youtube channel and click on her video’s called ‘Learn Beginners British Sign Language’
BSL is an important skill that you may need to use one day, even if it is just the basics.
Want to do some reading but have read all of your books at home?
No problem! Listening to a story is just as good as reading one.
