LSA & SSA Email to all Year 3s - Friday 22nd May

Hello Year 3!


This week Miss Sells, Mrs McCarthy, Mrs Cunliffe and Mrs Jukes wanted to say hi. They’ve all been keeping busy with lots of fun activities. Here is a message from each of them.


Hello everybody,


I miss you all so much. I hope you are still enjoying all the time with your families, I wonder what you enjoy the most? My daughter and I go for a walk sometimes as we don't have a garden, it's lovely to see all the plants growing. We saw a beautiful dragonfly yesterday, it had iridescent green wings.

I am enjoying cooking new recipes, today we are having homemade chocolate and coconut vegan ice cream for pudding, I hope it's yummy because it caused a LOT of washing up.
I have finished all my craft projects. I made a cross stitch picture of the Death Star from Star Wars. It made me remember how you all tried so hard with your sewing during Arts week, you all did very well.

Have you been listening to the online stories every day? I felt a bit silly reading to my computer but I tried to imagine you all sitting quietly listening.

It was lovely to read your poems on the blog, how imaginative you are! I imagined being in class listening to you read them aloud.

I hope to see you all soon, be kind to each other.


Love from Miss Sells  xx




Dear Year 3 children,


Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. I miss seeing you all, I bet you have grown a bit since March! 


I hope you are making most of your time at home, enjoying the lovely sunshine and spending extra time with your family. I miss being at school but I try to keep myself busy. I read a lot and I have been on a few walks around the village (and saw some of you from a distance). 


While gardening a few weeks ago, I discovered a friendly snake that lives in our garden (we called him Simon the Snake). It is actually a slow-worm and not a snake; slow-worm is a type of a legless lizard - which I didn’t know. Simon likes to bask in the sun and we see him almost every day. Slow-worms are protected species in the UK so we always make sure we are quiet and do not disturb him. I have included a photo of Simon and our cat Leela, hope you like them.


Well done doing all your learning at home. I hope you will have a nice Half Term and get some rest after all your hard work.


I’m looking forward to seeing you (hopefully) soon. 


Take care,


Mrs McCarthy 




Hi everyone, 


I hope you are keeping well and have been enjoying the glorious sunshine we’ve had recently! My family and I have been making the most of it and have been doing lots of gardening and playing outside. Very excitingly, our first crop of broccoli has sprouted in our vegetable patch and we are all looking forward to being able to eat it. We are in the process of constructing a small wildlife pond, and my children are hoping that we’ll have lots of frogs and newts in it soon! 


I had my birthday at the weekend and we celebrated with pizza, a chocolate caterpillar cake, and a film night snuggled up on the sofa (with popcorn and more chocolate of course!) My children made me some splendid birthday cards, and I was sent some lovely gifts in the post by my family and friends. 


Over the last few weeks I’ve picked up some crafts that I’d started a long time ago and forgotten about. I’m hoping to get some of them finished by the time we go back to school. 


I hope you are finding lots of lovely things to do during your time at home alongside your school work. I’ll look forward to hearing all about it when I next see you all! 


Love from Mrs Cunliffe x



Hi everyone,

Hope you are all keeping well and busy with your school work. It’s been lovely to see some of your work on the school blog.  It’s been great to see some of you out walking and on your bikes and scooters round the village. I’ve been taking advantage of the sunny weather and been walking and running through the woods, have any of you spotted the fairy house in Hodgemoor woods? Maybe one of you knows you helped to build it.


I’ve also been really busy in the garden, all the seeds I planted have now started to grow, which is really exciting.


Apart from being outside I’ve been busy inside the house as well, lots of baking, especially for the VE Day celebrations. We also have a massive amount of rhubarb growing in the garden so have been creative making new recipes, I’m making rhubarb ice cream this afternoon so I’ll have to let you know how that goes.

My girls have been out skateboarding most days when they are not doing their school work. I had a go one day but don’t think I’ll be doing that again! I’ve also been practising a bit of football, rounders and hockey with the girls in the garden trying to improve my skills.

Hope to see you all soon,

Mrs Jukes
