Welcome to Year 3
with Miss Bedborough, Miss Egeh, Mr Paco and Mr Lovelock
From Monday 11th May we will be changing how we upload work for some year groups. Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 – we will start to use Google Classroom please wait for your letter in the post for more information on this.
Please note! Google classroom is new to us and we are bound to experience some teething problems and technical issues – if this happens, bear with us as we sort them out!
Please check out Mr Marshall and Mr Pirbhai's new exercise videos on the website. These are fun exercises you can do at home with the family.
Under classroom pages, please click on the Physical Education page.
School Closure Work
Please find below, work to be completed at home. Work will be published daily/ weekly.
Week commencing 11.05.2020
As you all maybe aware, we have moved on to using Google Classroom where the children are able to access all of the work there. We will now be using Google Classroom to set work, however we understand that some of you may still not have received the password to access Google Classroom so we will upload work on the website as usual.
Week commencing 4.05.20
Week commencing 27.04.20
Whilst the next two weeks would ordinarily be part of the Easter holidays, we thought you may appreciate some fun activities to keep you occupied whilst at home.
You can pick and choose ideas from each of the folders. Do as much or as little as you would like. However, please ensure that you are continuing to practise the spellings at home (link below).
Homework Information for Parents
In Year 3, the children will be given 4 pieces of homework each week: Guided Reading, Spellings, Literacy or Topic and Maths. The homework will be set on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday.
For Guided Reading we expect the children to do a minimum of 10 minutes reading each night. This could be either the book allocated on Bug Club, their free choice colour levelled book or any other text of their choice. They should be completing one Bug Club text, as well as the attached comprehension 'bugs', each week.
If you would like to carry out extra activities here are some options you may wish to choose:
- discussing key characters and settings
- making a list of unfamiliar words and their meanings
- discussing the book with your child and the events that occur
Reading diaries should be completed each day (a minimum of 5 times a week). Each entry should include the title of the book, date, a comment if appropriate and be signed by an adult.
Spellings are given every Friday which must be learnt and practised using sentences DAILY as we carry out a Spellcheck the following Friday. Please ensure that your child understands the meaning of the word.
Maths homework will be updated on Mathletics on a Friday and the children have a week to complete the set activities as well as play some of the games on 'Live Mathletics'. The children should also be practising their times tables on TT Rockstars. Please let us know if your child has problems accessing the internet or either website so that we can ensure they have alternative homework!
Separate times tables will be set weekly and checked on Fridays.
Literacy/ Topic homework is set every Friday, to be completed by the following Wednesday. The homework will be based on the work that the children have completed in class that week, therefore they should be able to complete it independently. There will be several examples of activities, however they only need to complete one of the options or choose their own activity based on their interests from our previous learning. The homework should be completed in their red homework books, however your child may also choose to present their work in different ways (eg, poster, leaflet) on occasion.
Please ensure that your child is completing homework. Homework books should be handed in on Wednesday and reading diaries handed to the class teacher on the day that your child reads in class. If they do not complete their work on time, they will be given one more opportunity to submit their homework. After this, if it has still not been submitted, they will receive a lunchtime reflection.
We appreciate all the hard work you do with your child at home.
