Home Learning During School Closure

Hi all, we hope that you are all staying well, safe and happy. Mrs Armley-Jones and myself are missing you all and we look forward to a time when we can see you all again. In the meantime, keep yourself busy. Try and do a few things that maybe you have never done before or that you'd always like to have tried. I'm sure that you are all looking after your parents and doing a few little jobs for them. In terms of work the most important thing is to keep reading as this is the backbone of your learning. Our current topic is "Moor to Sea" and there are some ideas of things you could do with your parents below. We particularly look forward to hearing all about the last one on the list!!! Keep your maths skills alive and work on your times tables.

We are looking forward to using Class Dojo to provide your home learning from now on so remember to log on and have a look!

Keep yourself active and make sure that you get outside and enjoy yourselves every day

Any way, goodbye for now and good luck!

Mr Green and Mrs Armley-Jones

 

Below is some additional information and links that will help you and your child at home.

Year 3 Curriculum Information: support at home during the current epidemic

ENGLISH : we have been looking at writing a range of fiction genres as well as non-fiction genres. You could encourage the children to write stories or topic pages based on any of the topics that we have covered so far. The Literacy shed is a fantastic website full of videos and images to support children's writing  https://www.literacyshed.com/home.html

We have covered lots of areas so if your child does do any writing then please look at the following for them: spelling of common homophones, suffixes and prefixes (re, dis, mis, un, ly, ing, ed,nes and full), extending vocabulary and using root words. Punctuation: capital letters, full stops, commas, question marks, exclamation marks and inverted commas (speech marks). We have also worked on: openers (time and place), conjunctions, subordinate clauses with commas, paragraphing and of course handwriting. 

We will be really pleased to see any work the children are producing over this period of time.

Due to the plan to close schools this week, we have had to abandon our latest Big Write. The children had been working towards writing a persuasive letter to argue against the issue of deforestation. Many of the children felt quite passionate about this as we explored some of the reasons for and against deforestation and might still like to try to write their letter at home.

MATHS : we have started to look at fractions and as this is a large part of the Year 3 curriculum it would be well worth getting to grips with it. We use White Rose at Stowford and much of what they produce is really easy to follow.

Use https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/schemes-of-learning/primary-sols/

You could also look at past learning and make sure your child fully understands it by retesting them and using some of the resources to help shape your questions.

Have a look at the "Additional Downloads" as these would be good to develop and stretch children's understanding of the maths they have covered as these are reasoning and problem solving questions

UPDATE:

White Rose have now released home learning lessons. These follow our current plans and come with videos to guide you through the learning as well as work slides and answers.

As well as that, work on times tables, time and shape would also help.

Now could be a good opportunity for some children to develop the skill of touch-typing to help during written and computing tasks. Have a look at these links to start having a go!
