Spring Term

Week commencing 25th January 2021


Welcome to your Year 3 home learning page. We hope that you enjoyed your first full week of online learning! We really enjoyed seeing you all on screen and the work you have produced has been absolutely fantastic! Keep up all of your hard work. We have added a slide show of some amazing work that your teachers have spotted. Keep uploading your work as we love to see what you have been up to!


Our timetable will still be the same on Teams and the structure of the day will remain the same.

 

This is what the structure of the day on Teams will be for all children in Year 3.

9.15am - English
10.30am - Maths
11.30am - Phonics/Spellings
1.30pm - Topic
3pm - Class read

 

Each lesson will have an input from the class teacher for around 25 minutes as they would normally have in the classroom. The children will then be directed to their independent work, which will be located on Teams. Please see the file below which will guide you and your child as to where to find their work.

Please ensure that the children only complete the learning for that day.

All of the lessons will be recorded so don't worry if you miss one, your child will still be able to access the lesson and the work that has been set.

 

As always, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher if you have any questions or queries. Teachers will be able to answer any queries between 8.45am and 3.45pm.

Reading

We are aware that some children may not be able to access the same range of books as they would be able to at school. To support with this we have added a range of websites which have different online books provided for free. Please have a look and download any books that you would like to read with your children.

 

We are also encouraging children to take part in our Reading Bingo activity. If children complete the bingo card they will receive a prize from their class teacher when we are back in school.

 

Thank you for your continued support in helping your child become a reading hero!
