As the two weeks beginning 25th May and 1st June are the two designated holiday weeks in Trafford, we will be having a break from the home-school learning, feedback, assemblies and phone calls that have become part of our provision since the Easter Holidays. I hope that the more relaxed opportunities that have been afforded by our Government allow brief moments away from home for our families too and I hope this time is enjoyed by us all. Our provision for Key Workers etc will remain unaltered. We have provided a list of websites that may be useful to you over the holidays and this can be found in the downloads section.
Fri 22/05 - Spellings have been uploaded! Last test of this half term so I'm hoping for a big finish and lots of top marks being reported back to me!
Shout out to Rosie, Penny and Mum for calling in to see me at school yesterday - it was absolutely wonderful to see you and the cupcakes you so kindly dropped off for all the teachers were PERFECTION! Thank you all for being so thoughtful!
Weds 20/05 -
Some brilliant Rosetta Stones coming into me today! Nice work Alfiie, Rosie and Chloe! Can anyone translate them?

Tues 19/05 Hello! I hope everyone has made a good start on this week's learning activities. Let me know if there's anything confusing that you need any guidance with!
I recieved some lovely photographs of what some of you were up to over the weekend - check them out below and see what your friends have been up to!
Leo managed to get up close to this wild rabbit - cool!
Loving Josh's tie dye from the weekend - some lovely brother/sister bonding time right there!
Morten has produced some AMAZING work on trolls and - you guessed it - has created some fantastic art work too!
Mon 18/05 Good morning! Home learning packs will be found as usual in the downloads section.
Forgot to add the link for this week's spellings pack for those who enjoy the activities - here you go!
I absolutely love getting updates about everything you're up to, both with your school work and the things you're doing to keep busy while school is closed - so I thought I'd send YOU an update, in case any of you were wondering what your teacher is getting up to during lockdown... We know it's important to keep as busy, fit and as healthy as we can at the moment so our gaelic football club decided to get some kilometres tracked (walking/running/cycling) to raise some money for charity! We've raised about £5000 thus far, so we're really proud of ourselves! We had to take pictures of our exercise tracker to prove our distance and also send a photo of ourselves in club colours for our website...which is exactly what you can see below!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and I look forward to seeing all of your fabulous work this week! Miss P x
Fri 15/05 That's it! What a mammoth effort by everyone in our class during that battle - but unfortunately by only the slightest of margins we missed out on top spot. With my teacher account, I can see when everyone has been logging on and contributing to our overall score and I've been absolutely delighted with the fact that every person in our class made sure they were signing in and working hard on their times tables all week. Some fantastic scores from our top 5 and huge numbers from so many more in our class :) Hopefully it's helped with your speedy recall of times tables too!
Have a great weekend, everyone! Miss P
Last hour of the TTRS battle! The site seems to be so busy that I can't log in so I don't know the scores...Hopefully everyones doing their best to collect as many points as possible!
Good morning! Your spelling test for this week is in the downloads section and today is of course the final day of the TimesTables Rockstars battle! We've had some amazing numbers coming in from so many children in our class but we still need EVERYBODY to put in one last shift before midday today! You have ALL practised and contributed brilliantly as a class to our overall score as the week has gone by - fingers crossed we can take the win this afternoon!
HOW COOL IS THIS?! Chloe has been taking part in Strictly's Oti Mabuse's dance workouts in the mornings and Oti got in touch to tell her brilliantly she was doing!
Louie has done an amazong job with his Science and English this week!
Lillian has been keeping busy and is enjoying spending time with her little sister.
Mikkel has done some fabulous RE and worked amazingly well to get over 1000 correct answers on TimesTables Rockstars in one day!
Amazing stuff from Rosie with her English AND she's been joining in with Penny's science too!
Vaccine themed science from Lana!
An amazinggg volcano hat that even ERUPTS! Nice work, Joshua!
Stanley's space themed science hat!
Nice times tables work this week, Can!
Some BEAUTIFULLY presented work from Jamie and Leah about Jane Goodall.
Tues 12/05 It has been AWESOME to talk to so many of you today and catch up with all the goings on during lockdown. I'm so proud of how maturely you're all dealing with everything that's going on and I really hope we can get back to normal soon!
The times tables rockstars tournament is in full flow and is currently very close! Nice work Ebrahim, Vivian and Chloe who are our current top 3 for Year 3LP. Let's continue to work together to amass as many correct answers as possible - it's the correct answers that are being counted here, not the coins as Lana helped me understand today.
Can you break into our top 3 leaderboard?!
Mon 11/05 Good morning! Your home learning has been uploaded, as usual, please get in touch if you need any guidance with any of the tasks set.
Shout out to those already getting our times tables tally going! Nice job Rosie, Hthrivick, Ebrahim, Louie, Stanley, Eshan, Morten, Ruari, Mikkel, Jamie and Leah! Let's make this a team effort and get numbers in from everyone!
Email me for misplaced logins if necessary!
I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates over the past 4 days on our webpage - I did write to you all on Friday and Sunday but neither of the posts seem to have saved - I did try, I promise!
This week, I will be scheduling in my second round of phone calls with you all again - which I'm very much looking forward to! As with last time, please email me a day and time that suits you (if convenient, Tuesday from 9am-3pm slots nicely into my schedule this week) and I'll pop your name in my diary to give you a call to check in.
Finally, (for now) I'd like to give a special shout out to Joshua for his erupting volcano hat that he designed and made as part of the science work last week - you really went above and beyond, Josh! A worthy certificate winner on Friday afternoon, as was Ruari for citizen of the week. Nice work, boys!
Thurs 07/05 - Good morning all! I recieved LOTS wonderful emails yesterday - I will be replying to them all very soon if I haven't already got back to you! Today, I'm going to school to be with the children who are still attending during lockdown...so if you happen to be on the cowie for your daily exercise, give us a wave! It was lovely to see some of children there on Tuesday having a kickabout with their parents. Have a great day!
Weds 06/05 Hmm, I'm not sure what's happened here, but I, Miss Pritchard...the teacher... seem to be recieving an abundance of HOMEWORK this week?! This does not seem like the job of a wise and powerful Jedi master...
My hieroglyph interpretation will be outstanding by the time I've finished! Do bare with me in terms of deadlines, but I promise I will submit it back as soon as I can.
Great job so far this week from many of you in terms of your online learning...lots of great stuff going on with MyMaths and ReadTheory. Below you'll find the top 5 from our TimesTables Rockstars class league. Some outstanding numbers there... can you break into the top 5?
Now for some of your work I've had shared with me so far this week...
Mikkel has made a great start to his maths over the past two days!
Not that I like to promote such things on our webpage but I SUPPOSE Ruari's French work practising colours is...ok...
Leo has produced some wonderfully neat work.
Nice French work from Joshua...
Jamie and Leah really enjoyed drawing and colouring their heiroglyphs this week.
Some smashing Geography/Art work here from Lana
Tues 05/05 - Good morning Year 3LP! You may first be wondering where our previous updates and photographs have gone from April - well, just to keep our webpage as clear, concise and easy as possible to navigate, I've removed them.
But don't worry, I've archived them because I think when the time comes for us to be back in school, it'll be cool to look back on the days we're currently experiencing and see what we've been up to. I'll continue to do this for as long as we're on lockdown - it's definitely stuff for the history books!
I hope you enjoyed yesterday's weekly intro and have started some of your home learning activities! Shout out to Morten and family for sending ME some work to do this week! Really enjoyed your Star Wars/Harry Potter/Man United themed quiz - it was peculiar to be completing the work instead of setting it!!
