Online Safety

 

Please take the time to have a look at our new online safety parent cards.  These cards are written for parents and clearly & simply explain how to set up parental controls, block users, age restrictions and more.  We hope that they will be very supportive for your all. 

If you have any questions about these or any element of online safety, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher or you can email our Digital Learning Leader: Mrs Briggs, at rushyict@rushymeadow.sutton.sch.uk.

A reminder that school finishes for the summer holidays on Friday 21st July at 1.35pm.

 

What a year1 the children have worked incredibly hard this year, both academically and creatively. We are really impressed with their team work skills and their growth mindset.

 

We wish you all a happy and restful holiday. Don’t forget school resumes on Monday 4th September 2023.

 

Don’t forget about logging into Times table Rockstars (use the log in for your chrome books).

 

Don’t forget you can challenge your classmates and adults too!!

 

Please ensure that your child is reading everyday (this can be a school book, home book, magazine, comic or from the online Oxford Owl website) and recording their reading in their diary daily. The more exposure to the written word the better their writing becomes. They can read any book, it doesn’t always have to be a school given book. We want your child/children to develop a love of books and enjoy reading for pleasure. Try to make time to share a book together as part of your evening routine. Snuggle up in bed or on the sofa, if you have a great place to read then why not send a photo via the class email to show your child reading in their favourite place!

 

Please use the class email to speak with us about any issues and send any work you would like to share via email. We do endeavour to put examples on the photo gallery of the blog.

We ended the week by gathering and up levelling our vocabulary choices.

Please ensure that your child is reading everyday (this can be a school book, home book, magazine, comic or from the online Oxford Owl website) and recording their reading in their diary daily. The more exposure to the written word the better their writing becomes. They can read any book, it doesn’t always have to be a school given book. We want your child/children to develop a love of books and enjoy reading for pleasure. Try to make time to share a book together as part of your evening routine. Snuggle up in bed or on the sofa, if you have a great place to read then why not send a photo via the class email to show your child reading in their favourite place!

 

Please use the class email to speak with us about any issues and send any work you would like to share via email. We do endeavour to put examples on the photo gallery of the blog.

Don’t forget we are going to Morden Mosque on Tuesday 14th March 2023. Please ensure your child is dressed in full school uniform and has a waterproof coat.

Please make sure you return the Mosque permission slips as soon as possible if you have not already done so. As we are unable to take your child if we do not have a signed permission slip.

 

On Monday 13th March 2023 KS2 has the opportunity to take part in a circus skills workshop. Year 3’s workshop will fall in our PE slot on Monday. Don’t forget to check next weeks blogs for the photos.

 

Friday 17th March is Red Nose Day and we will be holding a mufti day in support of the Comic Relief charity, which does such important work both in the UK and abroad. Donations (suggested £1) should be passed to class teachers on the day. 

There is no specific theme for the mufti day – children are welcome to wear whatever they like as long as it is school and weather appropriate and they can go to the toilet independently in it. Please also be mindful that PE lessons will be going ahead as normal, so if your child has PE on a Friday, they will need to be able to do this safely and comfortably in their outfit of choice. 

Children are also welcome to bring their Red Noses to school but we strongly recommend that these are named and kept in the child’s own tray when they are not being worn, as it may cause problems if they get mixed up. 

Each class will also have an opportunity to share their funniest jokes with one another and take part in other fun activities during the day.  

 

School disco on Wednesday 29th March in the school hall 4.30 till 5.30 – tickets are £3 each and are on slae Friday 10th March, Monday 13th March and Monday 20th March from 3.15 to 3.30 outside the school office.

Please can you ensure your child does not bring any toys or Pokémon cards into school, as this has been causing problems amongst the children.

 

Don’t forget individual children’s photos are on Thursday 6th October, please ensure your child is dressed in full school uniform. We will not be doing P.E that day, so no P.E kits please.

 

Our PE days are Mondays and Thursdays, please note your child should come to school in their kit on these days. Please ensure long hair is tied back and earrings are removed. Your child may wear a plain white t-shirt, black shorts or black leggings/jogging bottoms. They should wear their school jumper/cardigan – no other sports top. They can wear trainers or plimsoles.

 

Don’t forget about logging into Times table Rockstars (use the log in for your chrome books).

 

Don’t forget you can challenge your classmates and adults too!!

 

Please ensure that your child is reading everyday (this can be a school book, home book, magazine, comic or from the online Oxford Owl website) and recording their reading in their diary daily. The more exposure to the written word the better their writing becomes. They can read any book, it doesn’t always have to be a school given book. We want your child/children to develop a love of books and enjoy reading for pleasure. Try to make time to share a book together as part of your evening routine. Snuggle up in bed or on the sofa, if you have a great place to read then why not send a photo via the class email to show your child reading in their favourite place!

 

Please use the class email to speak with us about any issues and continue to complete the daily assignment on MS Teams and send any work you would like to share via email. We do endeavour to put examples on the photo gallery of the blog.

This Week’s Learning – wb 19.9.2022

In topic this week, we gathered vocabulary for our fairy tale. We then wrote our own fairy tale based on the story of Hansel and Gretel, we tired hard to include inverted commas for speech, adverbs to expand action and we are beginning to learn how to use paragraphs. We finished the week by moving onto our science topic of light. We looked at recognising that we need light in order to see things and that the dark is the absence of light.

 

In Maths, we completed some different quizzes to check your child’s understanding and to identify gaps in learning that we can fill during Year 3.

 

Music - your child is learning to play the ukulele through the Sutton Music Service.

 

French - Bonjour!  This week we will be learning how to ask how someone is and a few different ways to reply.  You could practice by listening to this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atNkI6QFZ50   Next week we will be looking at classroom instructions.

 

Next Week’s Learning – wb 26.9.2022

In topic next week we will be carrying on with our science topic of light. We will be completing some different investigations such as finding out what surfaces reflect light and why, how mirrors work and learning hoe light from the sun can be dangerous to our eyes and finding out ways to protect our eyes. We will be finishing up the week by identifying the features of an explanation text and planning an explanation text on being safe in the sun.

 

In maths next week we will be adding a multiple of 10 to a 2 digit number, before moving onto subtraction. We will be subtracting a multiple of 10 from a number that bridges 100 and subtracting 10 from any given number.

 

Music – your child will continue to learn to play the ukulele through the Sutton Music Service.

 

Bonjour!  Next week we will be counting up to 12 in French.  You could log into your Busy Things account to practice.  Go to Busy Things, KS2, Year 3/4, languages, French and click on the counting worksheet  .  Next week we will be using our numbers to say how old we are.

 

Class Teacher Awards –

Each week we will choose 2 children who have really impressed us.  These children will be our stars of the week and will get a special certificate to go home!

 

 

This week we have chosen in Ash Class:

Logan and Pournami

Well done to you all!
