Hi Class 3

I hope you are all keeping well.

Well done to all of those children who took part in the Cornwall Virtual School Games, you all seem to have really enjoyed completing the challenges and earning points for the school. Thank you to Cammie, Jacob, Macey, Millie, Will and Ellie for sending me pictures of you taking part in the activities. An extra special well done to those of you who got your parents to join in with you and earn some bonus points! Jas has been enjoying some wild swimming as well as leading a donkey!

I must say Congratulations and well done to Harry B who suggested an idea to Paddington Bears digital team to go into Paddington Bears birthday animation picture. Harry suggested a giant marmalade piñata and Harry's idea was chosen so it features on the animation picture. There is a video of the storyboard artist drawing the animation on Facebook if anybody would like to watch it. 

Home Learning this week

Please remember that when it comes to ‘home learning’ we would like you to do as little or as much of this as you can - there is absolutely no pressure. Feel free to continue using any of the websites and documents I have previously uploaded. The documents are for those that want it with no pressure or expectations.

Maths- we will continue to follow the White Rose Maths lessons which you can find by copying this web address into your browser: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ Click on your year group and then Summer Term – Week 10 (w/c 29th June), you will see there is one ‘lesson’ for each day. The PowerPoint shows and explains what to do. The worksheets will be in the uploads so just look for the worksheet that matches the PowerPoint you have watched. **BBC Bitesize has a selection of daily lessons (different subjects) and the maths videos link directly with the White Rose Maths so you may want to check them out as an alternative. Here is the link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons Select your year group and scroll down to select your lesson.

English- tasks are within the topic grid.

Topic- I have uploaded a new grid ‘Famous and significant people’ which contains your learning challenges for this week. Please pick and choose what you would like to complete. You may have your own ideas about tasks you could complete and/or want to base your learning on a different person… it’s up to you! I do look forward to seeing what you choose, I would love it if you could email me.

PSHE- see attached document ‘PSHE Goal Setting’.

Spelling- we will continue our learning about homophones. See the upload below ‘Homophones and Near Homophones’ but remember you don’t have to print out each sheet – write the answers down on a piece of paper or in your home learning book. *Choose a challenge level from 1 to 3 stars*

Reading Comprehension- Florence Nightingale – choose your own challenge level, ranging from 1 star to 3 stars. Read the text and then record your answers to the questions on a piece of paper or in your home learning book.

It would be great if you could read each day; maybe you have a pet you could read to, a family member or maybe you could find a cosy spot and read to yourself. You could read books, magazines, newspapers, eBooks, brochures or recipes…. I’m sure there’s lots more too!

Over the past week it has been lovely to have contact with most of you whether it be in person when I have seen you at school, by email or telephone. I have loved seeing what you have been up to and hearing that my children are doing well. Please could I ask those who have not yet responded to my emails or telephone messages to send me a quick email back just to check in or telephone the school, many thanks.

Please keep in touch. Remember I am here to help you in any way I can.

Here is my email address: rhorn@pelyntprimary.co.uk

Keep smiling!

Cammie and Jacob have had yet another great week of fun activities and completing home learning tasks. They have done lots of things, including, spending time at the beach and in the sea, walking along the cliffs at Padstow, working hard on their decimal learning and writing a letter to their nephew. Well done and thank you for your email and pictures.

Macey has enjoyed making her Dad a Father’s Day card and gift as well as working hard on her fraction learning. She also went on a bike ride and made pasties... they looked delicious! Well done Macey and thank you for your email and pictures.


**Cornwall Virtual School Games**

Sadly, the tradition of a summer sports day can’t take place this year, however we do have a wonderful opportunity for you all to take part in an exciting sports week! You can complete different challenges to earn points for yourself and the school. We also thought it would be a great idea to turn the points you add into house points so we can have an end of term house winner! Check out Miss Edwards’ blog on the home page where you will find more information and the pdf activity cards which are very useful as they explain the challenges. I have also uploaded a couple of documents below. Here is a web address you can visit to watch a video on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTCzGbKj1BM&feature=youtu.be Good luck to you all!

Hello to you all

Thank you for the emails and photos I have received this week, you know I love to hear from you.

Let’s see what some of the class have been up to….

Macey had a jam-packed week full of home learning and fun! She sent me lots of pictures too! Here is a summary of what she has been up to: for World Ocean Day she made a hammerhead shark, wrote a fact file about a starfish and created her own rain collector to measure rainfall. She also went on a bike ride with Ellie, baked a chocolate cake, followed an online workshop to make some paper flowers and so much more! Well done Macey!

Cammie and Jacob have had another busy week where they have completed home learning tasks from the uploads, rode the camel trail, had a walk with their Granny and completed tasks about Cornwall. You will see in the uploads their word document explaining about the King Arthur quest they went on! To bring their learning to life they walked to Tintagel castle and explored the ruins and caves. They then also found Bossiney Mound and waded through Dozmary Pool to find Excalibur! What an excellent way to make writing about it all a bit easier. Well done Cammie and Jacob!

Harry and Jess enjoyed a trip to the beach to collect items that they could add to their underwater bottles, such as shells, seaweed, sand and stones. They added food colouring and oil and when they turned the bottle on its side, they said it looked like the layers of the ocean! They have also been working hard on their keyboard lessons, TT Rockstars and maths learning. They have enjoyed going on bike rides too, well done Harry and Jess – it was nice to shout hello and wave to you as you rode past school last week!

They are now eagerly awaiting the eggs to hatch. Well done to you both!

Home Learning Blog 8 Week Commencing 1st June 2020 

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a great half term and enjoyed the beautiful weather! I had a good week; I got some jobs done at home and at school and enjoyed the sunshine in my garden! I particularly enjoyed sitting in my garden on Saturday night when I was, like many people, looking out for SpaceX, it’s quite amazing to have witnessed this piece of history!

I can’t quite believe that it is the beginning of Summer term 2 and as we are not back together yet I will continue to upload home learning each week until further notice. There will be a new mini topic grid added next week but for this week we are going to focus on the ocean as it is World Ocean Day on Monday 8th June. I know lots of you are interested in the environment, animals and how to prevent pollution so I hope you enjoy completing some of the tasks I have put onto the ocean grid to complete this week. On Monday 8th I would like you to take part in the day, I will tell you more about it next week but you can take a look at the online programme for the day by following this link: https://worldoceanday.school/

*Feel free to continue to use any of the websites and documents I have previously uploaded, these can be found on previous blog entries by scrolling down.

Spelling- see attached word search documents for the year 2 common exception words and year 3/4 words.

Happy Half Term! 


Hello to my lovely Class 3 children

I wanted to start off by saying how proud I am of each and every one of you for embracing your home learning and how you have adapted to change. I have loved hearing from you and seeing all of the wonderful activities you have been up to, whether it be tasks I have set or carrying out challenges that you have created with your families. Well done!

I am not setting you any home learning this week so that you can have a well deserved half term break. The next home learning tasks will be set on the week beginning Monday 1st June.

Please keep checking your emails as this is how we will communicate information letters to you during these times of change. We have also been writing your annual reports so please look out for those via email too.

I hope you all have a great half term… I am hoping to spend some time enjoying the weather and completing some more jobs on my to-do list!

Keep safe and have fun!

Thank you to those of you who got in touch this week, here is a little round up:

Emily and Bethany said they have been busy on their farm as they have new calves! They have been shearing the sheep, exploring the woods, splashing about in the pool and have made an obstacle course from wood in the workshop.

Ellie and Will have been building famous landmarks; Ellie made Big Ben and Will made the Taj Mahal. They have also enjoyed go karting and making and eating cake!

Jess has been enjoying time in the garden practising her netball skills, she had a competition with her older brother to see who could shoot and score and then take a step back. Jess’ mum sent me a video of her and I must say she was accurate with every shot!

Jasmine has been up to a range of exciting things! She built a model of Big Ben, has been climbing trees, feeding the donkeys and creating some artistic masterpieces! Jas watched a tutorial and using acrylic paint created a wonderful piece of art, see if you can spot it in the pictures!

Seth has been busy with his home learning and earnt two certificates for some English work that he completed online. He has also been practising his spellings, cooking and exploring the outdoors.

Cammie and Jacob have once again had a fun filled week! They have completed quizzes about flags and football teams, practised the animal names in French, classified animals and habitats and much more! They also cycled the camel trail from Bodmin to Padstow and back which was 24 miles! Well done boys! Miss Porter and I did part of the trail last summer from Wadebridge to Padstow and back and we said this summer we would like to do more!

I had a busy week which mostly consisted of sorting, cleaning and enjoying the outdoors! I have been sorting out lots of my old things and came across some pictures... I wonder if you can spot me in the collage this week? Making chocolate brownies was a disaster so there isn’t a picture of them, I spoke to Mrs Lee about them afterwards and she gave me a top tip that I will try next time!

Home Learning Blog 6 Week Commencing 11th May 2020 

Hello everyone!

We are at the start of another week! I hope you are well and have been able to get outdoors since the weather has improved again. I hope you enjoyed celebrating VE Day on Friday, even though it may not have been in the way you would have originally planned.

You have been working hard on your learning again this week - thank you for sending me photos of what you have been up to. Here is a little update of what some of Class 3 have been up to:

Mara has been enjoying completing some money challenges, playing a board game with her sisters and spending some time chilling with her dog, Bindi.

At the beginning of lockdown, Cedella and her family worked together to make a memory blanket using scraps of fabric they had at home- I love it! She has also enjoyed exploring outdoors and cooking homemade fish and chips! Yummy! Cedella has also been learning about the flags of the world and writing animal fact files.

Charlie has been enjoying lots of different activities at home, including reading, making things out of playdough, enjoying some water outside and planting some seeds.

Jess and Harry have been busy practising their maths and have completed over 500 sums each! Harry has researched different football kits from three different continents and Jess has been writing about a country she has visited.

Cammie and Jacob have spent their week planning and organising an afternoon tea party to celebrate VE Day. They made lots of delicious food and drinks, as well as decorations. I think the report they have made is wonderful and they have agreed that I can share it with you (see upload in the documents below)

What have the adults in Class 3 been up to?

I have been busy painting the outside of my house, gardening and starting to learn how to bake! So far, I have made a Milky bar cheesecake which I delivered to my neighbours’ doorsteps and I am going to have a go at making some brownies (following Mrs Lee’s recipe!) this week. Wish me luck!

Mrs Lee says “Hi everyone, hope you are all well. I have been having fun helping Elsa and Josh with their home learning, we have been on lots of nice walks and bike rides exploring and enjoying the sunshine. I have also been busy helping on the farm”

Home learning this week

Please remember that when it comes to ‘home learning’ we would like you to do as little or as much of this as you can- there is absolutely no pressure. Feel free to continue using any of the websites and documents I have previously uploaded. The documents are for those that want it with no pressure or expectations.

Maths- Money – giving change and ordering. See attached word document which contains White Rose resources (use this first) then see other documents for extra questions.

English- Babcock writing task ‘Teeny Tiny Tales’. Another idea would be to start a diary and write a short entry each day… try to use conjunctions to extend your sentences and remember to include your feelings.

Topic- Continue to complete tasks from the grid I uploaded on Blog 4. Activities linked to French, Science, Geography, RE and History.

Spelling- see attached document ‘English.spelling challenge cards’.

PSHE- see attached document ‘Happy is’.

Home Learning Blog 5 Week Commencing 4th May 2020 

Hello to you all

I hope you are keeping well and have been enjoying spending time at home with your families, the children I have heard from have been having a wonderful time! As usual, I will start with an update of what some of Class 3 have been up to:

Jasmine sent me some wonderful pictures of a pancake party she had for her teddies. Jas was the waitress and had to calculate all the orders! I was also sent an acrostic poem that Jas had written about ‘Coronavirus’- well done Jas!

Florence has been very busy over the past few weeks, she continued with some learning about the Romans where she made a board game and a catapult using wooden cutlery and elastic bands. I heard Florence and her siblings were firing mini marshmallows from their catapults into targets- how fun does that sound?! She has also been enjoying the outdoors, taking photos of flowers and insects then writing a description as well as writing a daily diary. Florence sent me lots of lovely photos, I have shared with you the ones of her decorated pony and her calves called Milly, Brownie and Milkshake!

Harry sent me a lovely email telling me what he had been up to; he has been working through the Spring activity booklet, designed his own poster and made a Lego chick. He has also demonstrated a huge act of kindness as he wanted to help other people and came up with the idea of a kindness crate. He got together some items he didn’t use anymore such as toys, books and DVDs and put them outside his house so that other children could take something when they were out on their daily exercise. What a wonderful thing to do Harry- well done.

Cammie and Jacob have been learning about habitats and camouflaged animals. They created their own habitat, completed a quiz and ‘spot the camouflaged animals’. Jacob wrote a fact file about Japan and Cammie researched the different leaders of countries and drew the flag of Japan. They have also been enjoying playing with their new remote-controlled boat in the big millpond.

Macey has had fun this week- as you can see from her picture, a tiger came to visit, along with a wolf, shark and lion! She also baked some delicious cheese scones, carried out the balloon science experiment, drew some flags from around the world and practised her spellings using a scrabble board.

Dylan has been completing lots of different activities including camping in the back garden, making a volcano out of plaster and then making it erupt using vinegar and baking soda, going for walks, exploring the outdoors and playing card games.

Mrs Lee has asked me to say hello to you all and to tell you that she is missing you and hopes to see you soon.

Home learning this week

Please remember that when it comes to ‘home learning’ we would like you to do as little or as much of this as you can- there is absolutely no pressure. Feel free to continue using any of the websites and documents I have previously uploaded. The documents are for those that want it with no pressure or expectations.

Maths- adding and subtracting money. See attached word document which contains White Rose resources (use this first) then see other documents for extra questions.

English- VE Day writing task. Babcock writing task ‘Afterwards’

Topic- Continue to complete tasks from the grid I uploaded last week.

Spelling- spelling quiz (attached PowerPoint)

VE Day tasks- please pick and choose from suggested activities, you may have your own ideas too!

A little bit about VE Day which will be celebrated on Friday this week…

VE Day was a very special day for our country 75 years ago on the 8th May 1945. That was the day that World War Two ended after five years, so everyone was very happy. Even the people who were not fighting in the war had been through a very difficult time. They were not allowed to go anywhere and there was not much food available. People had to grow their own food and do jobs which they would not usually have done.

This day became known as Victory in Europe Day – VE Day. To celebrate that the war had ended there were lots of street parties all over the country. People put tables out in the streets, made party food and decorated with bunting and flags to share their happiness with their families and friends.

Try to read each day and also continue to practise your times tables (using TT Rockstars along with other methods). Try to keep challenging yourself with spelling work and if you can, please practise your handwriting.

If you fancy an alternative to Joe Wicks, Arena, our sports partner have set up a PE and Outdoor learning channel. It is free to subscribe to and they update the channel on a weekly basis which includes PE daily challenges and Wild Tribe Outdoor learning. All age groups are catered for… please subscribe and take a look: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCStjKlMICO-Em7zMJoHR3A

I hope you all keep safe and well and I look forward to seeing any pictures or emails you would like to send to explain what you have been up to. Also, if you need any help or support with anything, I am at the end of an email so please ask... no question is a silly question! Here is my email address: rhorn@pelyntprimary.co.uk

Zak has been up to lots of different things, alongside completing some home learning tasks he has been enjoying the great outdoors! He has been on bike rides, playing football, going for walks and riding his scooter. He has also been helping with jobs around the house, baking cakes and playing Monopoly.

Esme wrote me an email explaining about all of the wonderful things she has been up to! She had her birthday and made a pavlova crown, entered a virtual egg decorating competition and has been completing a variety of home learning tasks. She has also been enjoying the outdoors where she has been going for walks, bouncing on her trampoline and upcycling her old playhouse. She has turned it into a potting shed where she has planted different seeds, I can’t wait to see the pictures as they start to grow!

Mara has been completing home learning tasks, she particularly enjoyed the crossword in the Spring English activity booklet. She has also made a swing with her sister and helped her mum bake… I am told the best part for her was licking the bowl! I’m sure that is lots of other people’s favourite part too!

Cammie and Jacob have once again been up to lots of lovely things at home and outside in their wonderful forest! They have been having duck races, forest walks (they have each written an acrostic poem which I have uploaded for you to read- they are great!), making pasties and going on forest scavenger hunts. They even identified the leaves and flowers they had collected- great job Cammie and Jacob!

Please remember that when it comes to ‘home learning’ we would like you to do as little or as much of this as you can- there is absolutely no pressure. I have tried to upload a range of documents for you to choose from.
You will see this week I have uploaded a topic grid with some ideas based on our mini topic entitled ‘Wonderful World Around Us’ which will take us up to half term. You do not have to complete all of the activities, or any of them! It is up to you which direction you choose; you may have other ideas that you want to do linked to this topic which is great! If you can, it would be great if you could send me some pictures or an email about what you have been up to, I do miss you all and love hearing from you. My email address is: rhorn@pelyntprimary.co.uk

Our Maths learning this week sees us begin a new strand based on money. I know lots of you are familiar with money already but it is good for you to revisit your existing knowledge and then develop this further, either by learning another aspect or delving into reasoning and problem solving.

For English this week I have uploaded a document where you are going to be a film critic, there are some clips to watch on the document or you could review a film that you have watched at home.

Please feel free to continue using any of the websites and documents I have previously uploaded. The documents are for those that want it with no pressure or expectations. Try to read each day and also continue to practise your times tables (using TT Rockstars along with other methods). Try to keep challenging yourself with spelling work and if you can, please practise your handwriting.

I have found this website to be really useful and child friendly- they have information on each subject: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/levels/zbr9wmn
This page will bring up a list of subjects and once you click on it you will see sub categories, they are also providing daily lessons which may be worth a look.

Don’t forget to check out Miss Edwards blog on the homepage where she is setting a little challenge each week!

Take care of each other, have fun and keep smiling!
