Good morning Aslans!


From today, your maths and literacy home learning will be posted on the new LKS2 blog which will be updated by Miss Travis, Miss Kendall and Mr Rist over the coming weeks while Mr Earl and I are in school teaching. You can still access this page and the different curriculum areas by clicking on the pictures above if there are activities you want to have a go at.


We still want to see all your super work (and your smiley faces!) so please do keep sending this in.


We miss you lots,


Miss Morecroft and Miss Wieczorek x

Hello lovely Aslans!


We've reached a point of change once again as the government begins to ease the lockdown. Due to this, things will start to change a little bit on our home learning pages as Walkley staff return to school full time. As Mr Earl and I are both be working in Key Worker bubbles, it will be tricky for us to make daily updates to the Year 3 class pages.


Don’t worry though - we have a plan to make sure we are still delivering fun home learning to you all! Mr Earl and I have prepared Maths, Literacy and Science work for this week, but your Guided Reading has been prepared by Miss Travis. From next week, Mr Earl and I will be posting less often, but you'll still be getting loads of great activities including daily maths from Miss Kendall and Miss Travis. I've already seen some of what is being prepared and it looks really fun!


We still want to see all the whizzy work you're doing at home, so please keep sending it in!


Sending virtual hugs,


Miss Morecroft and Miss Wieczorek x

Our first Walkley llamas!!

Monday 8th June


Good morning Aslans! We hope you're rested and ready for another week of online learning. As well as your maths, literacy and guided reading activities this week, we will be starting our South American inspired textiles unit. The first activity I have set for you is weaving your own llama! Head over to the Get Creative page to find out more. 




We miss you lots,

Monday 1st June

Welcome back Aslans!


We hope you've had a lovely week off and have been enjoying the beautiful weather. I can't believe we're now in June! This week, Mr Earl and I  are back to posting daily maths lessons as well as weekly spellings and guided reading. There are also new creative writing activities over on our Literacy page as we meet an explorer who has visited the rainforests. In the music section, there are some new resources from Sheffield Music Hub for you to try out. 


Keep up the fantastic work superstars! 

Even lockdown couldn't stop our South American Adventure!

Happy Half Term Aslans!


Well done for all the incredible work you have been doing at home over the last 6 weeks! It has been so lovely to chat to you all on the phone and hear about the creative and fun things you've been busy doing. We have also loved seeing all the photos of you and your work - thank you grown ups for continuing to share these with us!


Today is the last day of the Spring 1 half-term so we will not be adding any more work to the blog until Monday 1st June. You will still be able to access the tasks we have already set if you want to catch up with anything you have missed. There are some great activities that you might not have had time to do yet, but we think you will really enjoy.


Try and make the most of daily outdoor time - exercise and fresh air is really good for your physical and mental health - just remember to social distance to keep yourselves safe. As we approach the summer months, the plant life around us has really been thriving. Some gardens almost look like a rainforest! Why not spend the half-term break planting some fruit and vegetables in pots or in the ground around your garden? You'll definitely be pleased that you did, come harvest time. Yum!


Stay safe and we'll be back in touch soon with lots of new activities to keep you busy at home!


Lots of love, 


Miss Morecroft, Miss Wieczorek, Mr Earl, Mrs Wilson, Mr Clements and Mrs Nellist x

Hello Year 3s!


Today is a special Bank Holiday so we won't be having an online lesson today as you wouldn't have been in school. The TT Rockstars battle is still going ahead though, so let's see which class can score the most!


The May Day Bank Holiday is usually on the first Monday of May, but this year it has been moved to Friday because today is the 75th anniversary of VE Day, when World War II ended in Europe. There are a couple of videos below to let you know a little more about VE (Victory in Europe) Day, but you can find out more by reading about it on Newsround.


Next week, we'll be back with our usual daily maths lessons from Miss Morecroft and myself, as well as some Science on Monday, Guided Reading on Wednesday and some Literacy work throughout the week.


Have a good weekend.

-Mr Earl & Miss Morecroft
