Welcome to Year 3!

 

 

Firstly, thank you for all the work that so many of you have already shared with me. I am sorry if I have not been able to get back to you, we have been working hard preparing your online learning for this week. I have been very impressed with the work I have received and at some point this week, I will upload and share some on this page. 

 

Online learning will go live this Monday and the platform we will be using is Microsoft OneNote. I am not expecting all you all to be experts in the first week and understand there will be a learning curve with some possible teething issues. However, with some patience and practice, I am sure we will all get used to this new way of working.

 

OneNote is a great platform that allows me to distribute work to pupils personal folders. Pupils can then edit, answer questions and work on tasks set. Any work you complete in your folders, I am able to see and provide feedback on. 

 

Please refer to this page for a summary of learning for the week and extra resources. I will also continue award dojos and stars of the week for home learning, so keep an eye out! I look forward to seeing some of your work this week and hopefully seeing pupils in the Zoom P4C catch up sessions, invites went out Sunday 10th January and more information on this below. 

 

Our Christian value this term is COURAGE.

Endings which sound like /ʃən/, spelt tion, sion, ssion, cian

  • Strictly speaking, the suffixes are – ion and –ian. Clues about whether to put t, s, ss or c before these suffixes often come from the last letter or letters of the root word.
  • –tion is the most common spelling. It is used if the root word ends in t or te.
  • –ssion is used if the root word ends in ss or –mit.
  • –sion is used if the root word ends in d or se.
  • Exceptions: attend – attention, intend – intention.
  • –cian is used if the root word ends in c or cs.
