We are very sad that we cannot be in our classroom together but it is still so important that you are learning from home. Here are some activities to help progress your learning -
WE DO COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND IF YOU CANNOT GET TO EVERY ACTIVITY EVERY DAY, THESE ARE ACTIVITIES TO SUPPORT HOME LEARNING WHERE POSSIBLE YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RIGOROUSLY FOLLOW THEM.
There are a lot of activities, they may even last you several weeks.
BEING ACTIVE IS SO IMPORTANT. YOU COULD JOIN IN WITH JOE WICKS EVERYDAY ON YOUTUBE!

During the month of April, JK Rowling is posting audio books of Harry Potter on her website https://www.wizardingworld.com/
There are eBooks, quizzes and lots of other fun activities to take part in.
Don't forget to look on the Forest School webpage for forest school type activities you can do in your home and garden.
Lots of them are 'off screen' ideas.
Other home learning to keep up as well-

Within literacy our big focus will be filling any of our knowledge gaps for grammar. Things to look at will include - homophones, using conjunctions (and, so, because, after, then, but.....) and use of adverbs (quickly, quietly.....). You could write a story incorporating all of these.
You could also be practicing your Read, Write Inc spelling words and handwriting practice with them.
Here is the website for Twinkl, if the adults at home sign up they will get a month free due to the current conditions.
On the website is plenty on grammar and it includes everything needed for year 3.
DO REMEMBER TO - continue working on your Times Table Rock Stars and Lumio!
* Don't forget the amazing espresso site can be used by you at home! *
In Computing the children continue to consider how to keep themselves safe when working online or using their mobile phones. It is something that we believe is very important and the children regularly have time to reinforce their knowledge of the ways to ensure they stay safe and happy whilst enjoying time on the computers. An excellent site for both children and parents is the Think U Know site. The web address is www.thinkuknow.co.uk and it is well worth a visit.
