A Message from your teachers...

Hello Classes 3HB and 3O'K, we miss seeing you everyday, but remember, even though we might not be in school together, we are still here to support all your learning.

I hope you are enjoying spending time at home with your family and I can't wait to hear all about what you have been doing when we are back in school. Hopefully you are spending some time outside in the garden, doing some exercise, getting creative and learning some new skills.

We have been looking at your engagement with Reading Eggspress and we have noticed that you are completing lots of quizzes to support your learning. Also, we have noticed that the following children have achieved a certificate for their learning.

3HB - A x2, C x1, O x1, J x1, R x1

3O'K - L x1, H x1

Looking at TTRockstars, there has been some movement in the status list of some of the children. The status links to how quickly you can answer the questions.

3HB - E - Rock Legend, R - Rock Star, O - Headliner, E - Headliner, J - Headliner, O - Gigger

3O'K - I - Headliner, H - Support Act, J - Support Act, S - Busker, H - Busker, E - Wannabe

As it is the Easter Holidays, it is time to spend with your family and enjoy some fun activities together. Please see in the Year 3 Home Learning section, a range of different activities for you all to enjoy completing.

We have also updated the Collingwood 100 Challenge and we look forward to seeing your photos.

Best wishes to every single one of you and all your families too. Stay strong, stay safe and stay healthy. You are all amazing! Happy Easter. Hope the Easter bunny is good to you.

Miss O'Keeffe and Mrs Hardwick.

Children who attended school last week, looked at the location of the International Space Station.

If you'd like to take a look visit:


You can enter your location (or just zoom into Chelmsford on the map) and it will tell you the date, time and compass location of the International Space Station each day. It looks like a moving cross and a bit like a star, so look carefully!
