Mr Bradshaw Goldfinch Class September 2020

Welcome from Mr Bradshaw for the September 2020 Year 3 class.

20th July 2020

Happy last Monday of Year 3 Goldfinches!


Well, I just can’t believe it is the last week of Year 3 and some of you have still been very busy.


First of all, a huge congratulations to Oscar for getting the Headteacher’s Award for home learning this week. Throughout this time, he has produced some extremely high quality pieces of work, showing excellent presentation and careful thought. Well done! Go to the home learning page to watch Mr Baker’s assembly.


Thank you to Isabelle, Jack, Oscar, Faye, Wasim and Dylan for your emails this week. There has been a mix of creative and messy work, some excellent formal writing and some real focused skills work. Well done to all of you.



Jacob is our TTRockstars champion this week with an incredible 93 games!

Well done to all of these people who completed at least their 15 games on Garage: Oscar, Esme, Perry, Isabelle, Stanley, Ava, Bobby, Isla, Desire, Eiliyah, Elizabeth, Faye, Vinnie and Thomas.

Well done to these children who got on to TTRockstars and had a go: Mia, Amelia, Jack, Jack and Ray.


A special mention to Isabelle for reaching Level 200 this week! Great focus and perseverance. If you haven’t yet, then don’t worry and keep practising over the summer. I know you’ll get there by September.


There are still a few days left of term so have a look at the Home Learning page and have a go at some of the tasks. The Home Learning page and our class page will still be there throughout the summer holidays. So please feel free to dip in and out of some of the activities.


Please also keep practising your spellings as well as your times tables, as this will set you up really well for Year 4. The Year 3 spelling homework booklet is below.


If you haven’t done it yet, don’t forget to have a look at Kingfisher class page to meet your new teacher!! Miss Mackenzie has posted a video just for you!


That just leaves me to say Goodbye, Goldfinches! Well done for all of your hard in Year 3, both in school and at home. It was a real pleasure to work with you and I’m sorry our time was cut short. In the 6 months we worked together, you made so much progress in your work and personally. I know that you will ALL do really well in Year 4. 

I look forward to hearing all about how you’re getting on and I look forward to seeing you when we can! I will be back!


Enjoy your summer holiday adventures. Take care of each other.

Today Mr Baker made our school fox very cross by waking him up from a lovely snooze in the pond area. We have at least 4 fox cubs in the family too but they were too quick for the camera!
