IT'S WORLD BOOK WEEK!! Our 'Mystery Reader' page is ready to go, find out which dragon themed books your teachers chose to record for you... I bet you'll never guess which collection of books I chose...
The YouTube links to the mystery reader videos can be found in the videos section on our literacy page https://www.oldfield-brow.com/info/literacy/
We also have an opportunity for you to take part in a sponsored read - all of that information can be found in our downloads section.
Today is the last day of your homelearning for the week... but also hopefully forever! As on Monday we will all be together again at school. We have really missed you!! And I am sure you have really missed being in and seeing all of your friends.
You will find your Maths work in the downloads section. It is the final revision session as next week we will be starting a new topic. Today you will be focusing on Column Subtraction and then having the opportunity to put your skills to the test with some word problems that involve addition and subtraction.
You will also find your English work in the download section. Don't forget to bring it in on Monday!
Here is a link to today's History lesson. Who were the pyramid builders?
Those of you who have been working at home don't forget to bring all of your books and work into school on Monday.
Have a lovely weekend!! :)
Thurs 04/03 - WORLD BOOK DAY
It's an exciting day at Oldfield Brow Primary School and we've all gone dragon mad!
Here you will find Year 3's special World Book Day assembly: https://youtu.be/9wvSnwIxPqE
And Mrs Chetwyn has prepared a whole school assembly too! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZT2q3ZuRnhE
Year 3LP - Don't forget to log into your live session at 11.30! Miss Pritchard is looking forward to seeing you all and seeing all of your masks and costumes.
Your English work today is World Book day related and can be found in the downloads section. Some of your classmates worked hard on their posters yesterday so that you would all have examples to look at. Don't they look fantastic?! We can't wait to see yours too!
Today's Maths can be found in the download section and we will be revising money. I have included some money games in the tasks too :)
As it is World Book Day, I am giving you two additional tasks. The first is to get lost in a book! You can read on your own, with a grown up or with a brother or sister. You could listen to an audio book, someone could read to you or you could check our Oldfield Brow mystery reader that can be found at the top of our webpage. This reading could go towards your sponsored read - see the downloads section for more information.
The second task for today is to have a go at designing your own book cover- you can find a printable sheet in the downloads section or you can just design your own straight on to paper. Bonus points if it's dragon related! If you want to write a story/create a book to go with your cover that's even better.
Have a fab day!
An exciting day ahead - in particular for 3HM as you all have your World Book Week live session today at 9:30am!
Red, Amber and Green comprehensions for today's English can be found in your downloads section - you know the drill now when choosing the correct option for yourself :)
Miss Mawe has put today's Maths revision topic up - today you'll be focusing on multiplication and division. Don't forgot to log in to TimesTables RockStars for practise too! https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button You're all familiar with 'Hit The Button' too - you can choose your own tables to practise here which is great to revise the one ones your confident with then push on with more challenging ones.
Have a go at the Well-being Wednesday task in your downloads section, it'll give you time to think about the positive and negatives of the last few weeks and your return to school. Hopefully we can help with any worries or questions you might have after you've completed it :)
Finally, your celebrity supply teacher for today is musical theatre themed! https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000kkmk/celebrity-supply-teacher-series-1-16-matthew-morrison-musical-theatre Matthew Morrison is going to teach you some moves to one of the greatest musical songs in history (in my opinion) and when you at home fall in love with theatre yourself and become a future West End star...you can remember this moment and call me up to give me tickets to come and watch you :D
Have a great day!

Good morning! Today's English is in your video section.
Miss Mawe has set out your Maths tasks in your downloads section - today you'll be recapping your knowledge on statistics.
Today's Art leads on from last week's inner self portrait - I saw some AMAZING ones on our 3LP zoom call on Friday so I'm really looking forward to seeing how you get on with the next step...
As part of your additional activities today, there is a code breaking task in our downloads section - Book Week related - let us know if you manage to crack it!
As we prepare for Wednesday (3HM) and Thursday (3LP) dragon themed dress up for World Book Week, have a go at designing your own dragon mask or take some time to sort the items you'd like to bring with you to our live sessions. A 3LP-er in the bubble last week said their dragon themed costume could be dressing up as their teacher - can you believe that!?
Have a great day!

Ok, team! It's that final stretch, one week before something resembling 'normal' returns to our school lives! I hope you enjoyed the beautiful weekend we've just had - I walked and cycled around the countryside for most of Saturday and Sunday and feel both physically and mentally refreshed! I hope you all did something very similar - sunshine, warmth and nature are just SO GOOD for the soul! We'd love to see any outdoorsy activities/photos from your weekend or during the upcoming week. Big smiles and blue skies please!
Your Maths activities are in our downloads section with links to videos and opportunities to print out any sheets necessary. This week, we'll be revisiting some of the topics we've covered throughout lockdown and in the Autumn term - you know, the stuff that we can do with your eyes closed at the time but when we revisit the topic, all of the information has somehow fallen out of our heads!! Today, our focus will be column addition.
It's Monday which means it's SPaG. We are going to continue with our work on inverted commas/speech marks, which you'll find on pages 62-63. Your spellings are of course on EdShed.
https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/why-did-the-ancient-egyptians-build-the-pyramids-c8wp2d Your history focus today will be all about the pyramids. We'll focus on this in much more detail when we return to school, but for now, click on the link, watch, listen and complete the activities throughout the video.
Finally, your additional tasks today will centre on P.E and Music. Joe will be smashing some cardio from 9:00 this morning here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ and Mr Pelekar is teaching you about time signatures today https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/recognising-time-signatures-68u3gd

You'll find your Maths in it's usual place :)
You have your Google Meet sessions scheduled in for 9:30 (LP) and 11:30 (HM) and your teachers are very much looking forward to checking in with you.
There's lots of brilliant stuff to learn in our Ancient Egypt topic, so to make sure we fit it all in, we have your second history lesson of the week below looking at trade and travel. https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/how-did-the-ancient-egyptians-travel-and-trade-cnhk4t The great thing about having you back in school soon is that we can start back with our normal history lessons with lots of hands on exploring, learning and investigating!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PedfXGus_K0 Rob is drawing the COOLEST monster in this tutorial, have a go and send us a photo of your finished masterpiece. We're doing it in the bubble today at the request of one of our very keen 3HM-ers.
Finally, if you've not already had a go at the Trafford 500 words competition, there's still time to join in! The closing date is the 12th March and as we've so many awesome writers in Year 3, it would be super to see some of you enter and show off your incredible writing skills. Head to the Literacy page on our school website for more information!
Have a brilliant weekend, the countdown is on to your return to the classroom :)

Your English focus today is headlines! Find your lesson with me in the videos section and see if your headline writing skills can earn you a prize on our first day back! When you've finished the task on the video, there's a headlines game in the downloads section - guess the fairytale the headline is from.
Your Maths instructions can also be found in the downloads section :)
We hope you're enjoying the 'taste something new' activity for the week! In class today we tried tuna, dried apricots, honeydew melon and BLUE CHEESE!! There were mixed reviews on some of these... Tomorrow, we're trying mackerel, halloumi, hummous, olives pickles and prunes!
Remember to keep up to date with recent news and see if you can spot any catchy headlines in the reports on today's Newsround - https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/news/watch_newsround
Check out this awesome well-being assembly from our friends at Oak Academy. It focuses on The Lion King - The Musical (one of my favourites). Hopefully you'll find it as interesting as I did and you'll be able to relax, listen and learn about such a wonderful art. https://classroom.thenational.academy/assemblies/wellbeing

Good morning! This week's comprehension is Egypt themed! There are three comprehensions amalgamated into one document in the downloads section - but the same green, amber and red stages still apply. I can't wait to have you back in school soon to do our Ancient Egypt topic learning in person, but for now, online will have to do!
https://youtu.be/Y-TXDymns0Q Here's the link for a special World Book Week (officially starting next week) assembly. Enjoy!

Maths - Your sheets and instructions are in our downloads section, alongside your video lesson with me, Miss Mawe - enjoy!
Art- Today's art work is going to get you thinking about you and who you are. See the downloads section for your instructions and if required, a template for your art.
Your English video is in it's usual place, watch this first then head to our downloads section if you choose to print off the sheet.
As our new English topic focuses on Newspaper reports, one of your additional activities today is to watch Newsround. What are they reporting on? What similarities do you notice between the features we discussed in our English lesson today and the way the presenters on Newsround deliver their updates? https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/news/watch_newsround
In class yesterday, we were talking about the types of food we like/dislike and how, as we grow older, our tastebuds matures and change. For example, I only started to enjoy eating olives when I was about 22. Before then, I thought they were revolting! From this, we decided that we'd try some new foods in the bubble this week - perhaps some we think we really don't like - and see if our tastebuds had evolved since the last time we tried that particular food. If you'd like to run a similar experiment at home, pick up something peculiar at the big shop this week and give it a go! Send us an email/voice message/video/photos about your choice and whether or not you enjoyed it. You could talk about your likes/dislikes, when you last had it, whether it tastes sweet/salty/bitter etc and if you think you'd like to give it a go again in the future. You could choose one type of food or go wild and have a really indepth tasting session! Let us know how it goes!

Maths - Your sheets and instructions are in our downloads section, alongside your video lesson with Miss Mawe - enjoy!
Your English is in our downloads section, you'll be focusing on punctuating speech today!
Continuing with our Ancient Egypt topic, today you'll be looking at why the river Nile was important to the Egyptians - this should start alarm bells ringing, an ancient civilisation built around a major river...where have we heard something like that before?!
Continue with your music lessons exploring beats in a bar https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/exploring-6-beats-in-a-bar-c5jpce and see if you can keep up with Joe this morning after a week off relaxing ;) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
It's world book week next week and we'll have lots of additional activities to fuel your love for reading and bewitch your imagination! Watch this space for upcoming instructions and further information on this year's theme.
All I'd say is...keep your eyes on the skies above Oldfield Brow...
