Year 3 Dolphins

Dolphin Update


Dolphin Class have been working very hard on following some new rules in school. We are extremely good at putting our hands up when we have a question and have managed to all wash our hands in under 3 minutes! We have been receiving plenty of house points for our work, being kind and following our agreed classroom rules.

We have begun to learn about the UK and Europe and have even learnt about the 8 points on a compass. In Maths, we have revisited our tens and ones and have begun to solve word problems involving hundreds.

Welcome Back

Dear Dolphins,

We hope you have all had a lovely summer break and are excited to be back at school! We can’t wait to listen to all of your stories and get to know you. We are in a new classroom this year, and we have decorated it ready for all of your lovely work.

The topics we will look at this term are extremely interesting! For Geography, we are going to be looking at the UK and Europe so make sure you do some research to prepare yourselves. In Art, we are going to be looking at famous European artists, architects and fashion designers! In Science, we will study forces and magnets (maybe you can find some magnetic objects at home). There are plenty of fun things for us to learn about this term and we are sure you will all enjoy it!

We have included a few pictures of our classroom for you to look at and maybe you can help me design them!


We are going to have such a fantastic year Dolphins!


From Miss Furzer, Mrs Hill, Mrs Boyd and Mrs Jones

To my lovely Dolphins,

I am missing you all so much and it saddens me that we have not been able to spend an entire year together and enjoy the beautiful weather as a class. This letter is my goodbye message to you and I just wanted to say how much I wish I could give you all a massive hug! I miss your smiles, your laughter, your random facts and your perfectly timed jokes.


Now, there are a few things I would like you to do for me!

The first thing I would like you to do is continue to believe in yourselves. You are all exceptionally creative, inquisitive and imaginative and do not let anybody tell you differently! You will all do so well in Year 4 because you have come so far since our first day together in Year 3.


The second thing I would like you to do for me is smile. This year has been incredibly difficult for all of us and we have all experienced something completely new, together! Therefore, when you are feeling down in the dumps, think back to all the fun we have had this year and show the world the biggest smile you have.


The last thing I would like you to do for me is be the absolute best that you can be, in everything that you do!


I know that I will see you again after the summer holidays and I cannot wait to see how much you have all grown. Thank you for making my first EVER year of teaching a memorable one. Thank you for making me smile every single day and making me laugh. Thank you for coming to school every day and for telling me all of the crazy stories you have. Thank you for sending me pictures of your lovely work over lockdown, and one last thing:

Thank you for being you!


I promise I will never forget you, and I hope you do not forget me either. Look after yourselves and have the best summer yet.

Lots of love and hugs,

Miss Furzer xx

Monday 20th July: IT'S PARTY TIME!


At Singlewell, we usually celebrate the end of the school year with a class party. Unfortunately, we are unable to do this together as a class this year, however it doesn’t mean you can’t have a celebratory party of your own with family.


You have all continued to work incredibly hard, trying your best in this tricky time and we want you to know how proud we are of you all


Below you will find a selection of ideas to help get your party started. We would love to see any photos you take so do email them over to your teacher!

Wonderful story writing from Dolphins!

Hi Dolphins! 


We hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine and are keeping yourselves safe! It was so lovely to speak with your parents (and some of you!) about how you have all been getting on.


Mrs Hill and I are both missing you so much and can’t wait to see you all. We are still so proud of you and hope you have all been enjoying the activities I have set for you. Whilst setting you some activities to do, I have been moving house! I also visited Knole Park this Tuesday and have included a picture of me feeding a deer, so I hope you enjoy it!


We think you are all amazing and can’t wait to hear all of your lovely stories. Make sure you have a nice break during the half term and spend as much time outside as you can, but remember to stay safe at all times. Take care of yourselves and your families and try to be good! During the half term, I’m going to be packing up more of my things and will hopefully have a rest too! Keep up the good work and remember to ask your adults to send me pictures of your lovely work after the half term so we can see how well you are still doing. I have also included a picture below with some fun activities you could do during the half term…


Lots of hugs and love,

Miss Furzer


Hi Dolphins!

I hope everyone is OK and keeping safe in the sun! I’m really missing you all. Well done for continuing to do your online school work… you’re all SUPERSTARS and we’re very proud of you! I’ve been keeping busy in my garden and decorating my two spare bedrooms. I can’t wait to get back to school for a rest!


Lots of love,

Mrs Hill

Hi Dolphins! 


We hope you are all working hard at home and enjoying the home learning activities we have created for you! We miss you all so much and bet you have grown loads. We’re so proud of you and are glad that you are keeping safe by staying indoors and that you are looking after yourselves.


We are proud of you all for doing your school work and we know how hard you must be finding all of this. You are all AMAZING! We think we should all have an enormous party when everything is back to normal!

Take care of yourselves and your families and try to be good! But most importantly, STAY SAFE.


We look forward to the next time we see you and we will be listening out on Thursday evening for your clapping for the NHS. Keep up the good work and remember to ask your adults to send Miss Furzer pictures of your lovely work so we can see how well you are doing!


Lots of hugs and love,

Miss Furzer and Mrs Hill
