Mr Fischer 3JF
Go Team 3JF!
While you're not at school, I'm busy trying to find ways to safely stay in touch online. If you have access to the internet, every now and then, I may set you a challenge for you to complete. Your responses can be shared here.
Below I have posted some work that grown-ups have sent in letting me know it's okay to share with everyone here.
Please remember to Care About Sharing, never sharing anything that you wouldn't post on your front door!
Stay Safe. Stay Connected.

TASK: Build with Lego and send in a picture of your best model - you could even turn the photos into a stop motion movie!
I can't wait to see what you build!
Here's a selection of our Lego builds sent in response to Maison's Class Challenge

Class Challenge 6
As it has been so long since I have listened to you reading, and now we have some most excellent examples from our Week 5 Challenge, for the week of the 1st of June, I set this Jackanory challenge:
TASK: Record your voice reading a section of a book you have at home. If you like, you could turn it into a video just as we did with Stone Age Boy in Challenge 5! Why not film it in an unusual, but safe, place?
Send the finished recording back to me to post online! If you’d like to try a different book, take a look at the books on our Year 3 Reading page.
- Be sure to rehearse the reading a few times to practise any new words.
- Try adding your own storytelling expression to your voice.
Please remember to include your grown-up's consent to share your work on our class homepage in your return email.

Class Challenge 5
I set a challenge for the class the week of the 18th May because I hadn't heard any students reading to me in the longest time!
TASK: I want to hear you reading out loud this week, so the challenge is to record your voice reading the "Stone Age Boy" story. Send the finished voice recording back to me to edit into your very own Book Reading or just to post online! Check out the examples HERE and HERE. Links to these examples are also on our Writing Page.
Have a look below at the awesome responses I received! I am super-proud of my boys and girls! Thank you for accepting the challenges and doing so well!
Have you completed this week's challenge yet?
How's it done?
I use editing software to split the audio so that I can match it to the video. Afterwards, I combine the two tracks into the digital video which you see below.
Class Challenge 4
As last week's challenge was really tough, the week beginning 11th May, I set one that was a lot more achievable and fun that grown-ups could get involved with too!
Most of you have some toys at home, so some of you built a set and used them to make their very own movie!
TASK: Create a Stop Motion Animation story using toys and objects from around your home. Check out a video HERE!
On the Buses
What Goes Up...
Class Challenge 3
The week of 4th May is quite a special week, with Victory for Europe celebrations taking place across the nation on Friday. So, this week's challenge had to be related to that!
The televised evening of remembrance begins at 8pm, and at 9pm, Dame Vera Lynn will be singing her famous song, "We'll Meet Again", live from her home in Sussex. Perhaps this song is just as poignant now as it was originally with so many of us separated from our loved ones.
TASK: With your family, learn and practise the song "We'll Meet Again" and either record your voices, or film you and your family singing it.
Let's find out how many talented families we have in our class. If yours is posted here, you automatically earn 50 House Points!

Class Challenge 2
The week of 27th April, I set 3JF the following challenge! I hope to find out how many aspiring magicians we have in our class. If yours is posted here, you automatically earn 50 House Points!
TASK: You'll need a grown up for this one! Teach yourself a magic trick and film it for your audience! Check out this video: HERE. There are quite a few others to choose from at Junk Drawer Magic, but I wonder if you can perfect this trick and share it on our website!
Let's see what the responses are like this time!
Ball Games Allowed
Money, Money, Money
Q:Where's the answer?
Money For Nothin'...
Dexy’s Daytime Runner
Later That Day...
Class Challenge 1
The week beginning 20th April, I set a challenge:
TASK: Ask your grown-up to show you how to do something around the house or garden. It should be something that you haven't done before, or didn't understand how or why it is done eg the way the grass is cut; the way washing up is done in your house.
Below are some of the responses I had. They each received 50 House Points!
Have you completed this week's challenge yet?
Doing It Yourself
|Time for Tea?|
Our classmate showed how we can all help our grown-ups take some time-out while you learners are staying at home! Milk, no sugar please, and it's builder's tea for me! You've won yourself 50 House Points for getting published!
Now, how about some cake with that?
