Week 2

 

Hello year 3,

 

Welcome to our second week of online learning! It was very strange not to be in the classroom with you last week but with the amazing work I have seen you complete on Sumdog, Purple Mash and Classroom Secrets has reminded me of what a fabulous, amazing and terrific class you are! You have made me so proud! I have also enjoyed receiving your emails and pictures with updates with what you have been up to at home with your family. I have included another set of photos below and will look to set up a class gallery so that you can see what everyone else has been up to.  

 

 

 

 

 

Parents – First of all THANK YOU! You are doing an AMAZING job!

Skills in English, maths and science are essential, but so too are life skills. Learning is much more than just a school curriculum so remember to enjoy the ‘simple’ activities together like baking a cake, going for a walk, writing a letter to someone, building a den, planting some vegetables, completing a puzzle, playing a board game or even washing the car.

 

Here we have a range of different activities for you to choose from to keep you busy this week! This week’s learning will follow a similar pattern to last week and I will try to add as many activities as possible to keep you engaged. Please don’t feel that everything needs to be completed and sent back to me, going at your own pace is exactly the right thing to do and if only one or two tasks get completed then please don’t worry.

 

Maths

White Rose Maths: This is the scheme we base our maths learning on. They are producing online materials including instructional videos that you can access from home. We are currently learning about fractions.

  1. Click on the set of lessons for your child’s year group.

  2. Watch the video (either on your own or with an adult).

  3. Find a calm space where you can work for about 20-30 minutes.

  4. Use the video guidance to help you as you work through a lesson.

There is no need to print most of the activities as answers and responses can be written straight into books or on any paper.

PSHE

During this time of being at home, many of you may begin to feel sad at the thought of not being able to do some of the things you love, or not being able to see family and friends you care about.  Could you create a Wish Jar for you and your family? Every time you wish you could do something or see someone, write it down on a note and pop it into the jar. As soon as we are allowed to move around more freely, take out your wishes one by one and watch them all come true! What will you put into your Wish Jar this week?

 

Art - Please continue work which was set last week.

 

Science

There are 3 types of rock. Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic. Can you find out how each type of rock is formed.? Use this website to write a short description or draw a diagram about how each type is formed.
