Please do check your email for the letter dated Wednesday 29th June as it has all of the key dates for the last weeks of term.

 

Friday 8th July your child will meet their new class teacher and spend time in their new class.

 

Reminder about Sports day on Friday 1st July, our time is 9am till 10.30am.

 

You will be able to access this event by going through the field behind school and entering through the small yellow gate into the designated spectator’s area. You can access this field from the walkway at the end of Rushy Meadow Lane or from the end of St Andrew’s Road. From there, you will be able to watch both the events occurring on the field, and on the KS2 playground. You will not be able to enter through the school office. Please ensure you stay in this designated spectator area. Members of the PTA will be in this area selling some refreshments, but we ask that you please do not purchase anything for your child.

 

Children will need to come into school dressed in their PE kits and should make sure they have a water bottle with them. We are hopeful for warm weather so please apply sun cream to your child before they come into school and ensure they bring a hat with them. As we are holding the event on the school site, children will have their lunch in school as normal.

 

We ask that if you do take photographs at the event, they are not posted on social media.  We have children in school whose parents and carers have explicitly told us that images of their children cannot be put on social media.  We ask that you respect their wishes. Thank you.

 

As we will be holding part of sports day on the field, we are kindly asking for some parent volunteers to support us in the morning to do a sweep of the area to ensure it is safe to use. We will provide bin bags and gloves. If you are happy to help, please send an email to willowclass@cirrustrust.onmicrosoft.com. It would be greatly appreciated!

 

As the weather is getting hotter, please ensure your child brings to school a refillable water bottle, sun hat and applies sun cream in the mornings.

 

Please remember on PE days your child should be wearing their school jumper/cardigan not any other sports top. Thank you.

 

Homework for this week is printed out. Please do ensure your child completes the homework and returns it by Thursday 23rd June 2022.

 

Our PE days are Tuesdays 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 where a plain white t-shirt, black shorts or black leggings/jogging bottoms. They should wear their school jumper/cardigan – no other sports top.

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.

Dear parent/carer, 

As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, we are taking part in a friendly competition involving schools in London. The competition runs from 07:30am Monday 27th June 2022 to 19:30pm Wednesday 29th June 2022. It's all done online via play.ttrockstars.com. 

Children can play in any gamemode with every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, earning themselves, their class and the school a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the competition as a whole will be the ones with the highest average. There will be prizes and certificates available. 

To support player wellbeing, there is a daily time limit of 60-minutes per player. In other words, each player can earn competition points for up to 60-minutes between 07:30am and 19:30pm on Monday 27th June 2022 to 19:30 Wednesday 29th June 2022. Once the player goes beyond 60-minutes of play on that day, they will still earn coins but will no longer earn points towards the competition. 

Let’s get ready to Rock!  

Please remember on PE days your child should be wearing their school jumper/cardigan not any other sports top. Thank you.

 

Homework for this week is printed out. Please do ensure your child completes the homework and returns it by Thursday 28th April 2022.

(children, parents, teachers etc can all use this button)

This is what the button looks like:

 

Mrs Briggs, the Digital Learning Lead, has ensured that this button can be found on many relevant pages of our school website and is now setting each of you a challenge.  How many buttons can you find on our Rushy Meadow Primary Academy website?  You will need to check that all of these buttons are working by clicking on them. Let your class teacher know how many you found using your online learning platform (Tapestry, Seesaw or MS Teams).

In the home learning section of the blog there will be two documents that you and your children will find useful for this half term. They are subject knowledge organisers for topic. These knowledge organisers are great to aid your child’s learning, they have key vocab, times lines, glossaries, and facts. Please do look at them, they are also on the classroom window.

 

Your child will be bringing home a letter today about a school trip to the Museum of London on December 14th. Please return the reply slip as soon as possible. If you require a school lunch please tick the correct box and if you are able to volunteer please tick that box also. Volunteers will be selected on a first come, first served basis. please return all slips ASAP. Thank you.

 

Please see the message below from Miss Dowding regarding an exciting competition for the children to take part in. Times table rockstars is great for helping children learn their times tables and speed of recall in a fun way.

                                                                                                                                

Dear parent/carer,

For Maths Week England we want to make maths exciting and high profile in our school. We will be taking part in a friendly competition involving schools from England from Monday 8th November to Thursday 11th November. It’s all done online via play.ttrockstars.com.

For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours, subject to a daily 60-minute limit). Winning classes in the school and in the competition as a whole will be the ones with the highest average. There will be a prize for the class in Lower KS2 for the highest average score and a prize for the class in Upper KS2 with the highest average score.

All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7:30AM GMT and 7:30PM GMT on Monday 8th, Tuesday 9th, Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th. To support player wellbeing, there is a daily time limit of 60 minutes per player. In other words, each player can earn competition points for up to 60 minutes between 7.30am and 7.30pm. Once the player goes beyond 60 minutes of play on a given day, they will still earn coins but will no longer earn points towards the competition.

Thanks for your support.

 

Homework reminder – homework is given out on a Friday and is due in the following Thursday. Please do not send the spelling sheet in as your child will need to keep it home to practice. Please just send in the maths or English sheet. Thank you.

 

Our PE days are Tuesdays 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 where 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 half term we are so pleased that we can now invite you to come into school and be nosy!  Come and find out what happens in your child’s classroom when they are doing their learning. 

Everyone has had experience of being in school – we’ve all been there at some point in our lives.  Some of us are still in school!  Inevitably things change, but some things do stay the same.  We want you to come in and see how we do things. 

 

Schedule for the Come and be Nosy days:

Y3 : Monday 4th October or Wednesday 6th October *

 

*Please note that you can only attend one session, this will ensure that the numbers are not too large on each day.

 

Once you have dropped your child off in school, please come round to the main reception and we will then take you round to the classrooms once registration has taken place.

Many of you will have attended a Come and be Nosy session previously and we know from the feedback we received that you find these really valuable.  We also know that the children will enjoy seeing you in their classroom.

Dear parent/carer, 

As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, we are taking part in a friendly competition involving schools from Greater London from Monday 28th June to Friday 2nd July. It’s all done online via play.ttrockstars.com. 

For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the competition as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.  There will be prizes and certificates. 

All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 07:00 and 19:00 on Monday 28th, Tuesday 29th, Wednesday 30th, Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd. 

In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more; some will play less. 

Thanks for your support as always.

This week in maths we divided by 3 and 6. We then used our knowledge of our times tables to help us solve multiplication and division word problems.

This week in Topic we had fun making our Egyptian Masks. We had to use paper mache to cover our masks, it was very messy! We then painted them with gold and blue paint to make them look like Tutankhamun’s mask. We also learnt how to make a mummy and wrote instructions on how to do this. We then completed our ‘L’ on our KWL and wrote what we had learnt this topic.

We began this week in Maths by practically dividing by 4 and 8 and then used this to help us solve problems when dividing by 4 and 8. After, we recalled the 8 times table. We then looked at the relationship between the 3 and 6 times tables. Finally, we used what we had learnt to help us divide by 3 and 6.
