Rainbow request

Emma Turner (the communications manager at Fairfield Hospital) has sent the following request out to children's schools.

" Across the Bury & Rochdale Care Organisation we’d like to engage with our local schools and children to ask them to send in rainbow pictures to brighten up our offices and wards".

So if you'd like to get creative I am sure that Emma and her colleagues would love to receive rainbows  from you Year 3 kids!

Just a quick message to all of the Year 3 children.

Hello Year 3,

                    I can't believe it! I forgot to update the webpage yesterday. Honestly, I think be away from school has slowly turned my brain into mush. I've been doing it every Monday for weeks now, you'd think I'd remember wouldn't you?

                    Well I hope you all had a good weekend, on Sunday I saw a fiery ball in the sky. it was a bit scary until Mrs.Henry reminded me that it was something called 'The Sun' and "it has been known to make an appearance in Manchester." I had vague memories of it and so I calmed down. As it was a dry Sunday I decided to see how far I could go on my bike - I managed 73 miles! I was quite pleased with myself (it is ok to feel like that so long as you don't go on and on about it 😀), I was absolutely exhausted when I got home and I did feel a little bit weird. Other than that the weekend was the usual parent stuff - cooking, hoovering, ironing, washing clothes, washing up, trying to be left alone to watch cricket ...

                 Hopefully your grown-ups will have received copies of your reports that I emailed yesterday and I have also sent out links to Zoom meetings so that I can wave at you all. I wanted to organise to meet as many of you as possible in person, but I think my idea may have been a bit too complicated and we are running out of time in the school year. It would be lovely to see you all in the meetings, but if you can't make it for whatever reason (maybe you don't like Zoom - it isn't my favourite thing to be honest) then don't worry I'll see you in school next year. Who knows I may see you out and about around Prestwich over the holidays.

                I've received some more pictures from your classmates that I'm going to put in our Lockdown Gallery. If you have any that you'd like to share please send them to the Year 3 home learning email address.


Don't forget: 

If you need to contact me you can do so on this email address:



Take care of yourselves and your families and don't forget: 

See if you can learn a new skill - I've always wanted to be able to juggle. I still can't, but I can YouTube now;

Help your grown-ups by tidying up when you've finished doing something - it will make them smile;

Try to do some exercise - Coach Leon will be looking forward to seeing you in PE;

Try not to spend too long looking at a screen - it's not good for your eyes - read a book, Coraline is great

(but a bit scary);

Keep positive - this will all be over eventually and I can get back to being your grumpy teacher. laugh


Keep washing those handsyes


See you soon,

Mr.Henry & Mrs.Launders



Hi everyone, I've tried something new! 

I thought I would complete reading The Witches for you, as we didn't get time to finish it at school so I've recorded myself reading the chapter we were up to and posted it on YouTube - Mrs.Henry has just called me a YouTuber (Is that a good thing?).

If you copy and paste the link below it should take you there.

I hope you like it and I'll post another tomorrow yes

finding unit and non-unit fractions of amounts

counting in fractions

halving to find quarters and eighths.


We will be:

re-writing a norse myth

extending sentences

predicting what a character might do and explaining why.



This will be sent home on a Wednesday and is to be brought in to school on the following Monday.

This will be available to be printed off from Saturday mornings, please click the 'homework' link above..



These will be sent home on a Tuesday and will be tested on the following Tuesday. 

These will be available to be printed off from Saturday morning, please click the 'spellings' link above. 

Other Information

This spring half term we will be making sculptures so please could your child/children bring in an old pair of shoes. The shoes need to be child sized.


We have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure that you child has PE kit for these sessions.

It is preferable for the children to have pumps, lace up trainers are not ideal especially if your child cannot tie their own shoelaces.


Please try to ensure that all uniform is marked with the child's name as this makes it easier to return clothing to their owner.


If possible could your child bring in an object from home (not a precious one) for our curiosities collection. It doesn't have to be anything spectacular, just something that is lying around the house. Previous classes have bought in items such as shells, tennis balls,  a ball of string, a toothbrush and a photocopied picture of an old relative. We will need these for Tuesday please.
