Hope you have all had a fabulous half term and have enjoyed this wonderful sunshine!

Here is your next batch of home learning to keep you busy next week. Remember that you don't have to do everything we are putting on here - we just want to make sure that there is lots of choice for those of you who like to be busy bees! For the next few weeks all our writing and topic work will be based on an exciting new theme - IMAGINARY ISLANDS. This week you will be creating your own island and Mrs.Bowden has made some videos to help you out with some ideas.

We absolutely encourage you to take time away from home learning and get outside in the fresh air - all 3 of us teachers like to go out for long walks every day. Mrs. Bowden has some stunning countryside to walk in right on her doorstep  and both Mrs. Beck and Mrs. Oldknow enjoy taking their mischevious (but very loveable!) dogs out for some adventure walks. What do you like to when you go outside?

Please keep emailing us and letting us know how you are getting on with the work we are setting. The only way we know if it is too hard, too easy or just right is if you tell us. We want to help and support you all as much as we can.

Hello Year 3!

We hope you and your families are all safe and well and that you are enjoying spending time together. We miss you all lots but can’t wait to hear about all the exciting things you have been up to at home. You could show us what you have been up to by sending us photos to our school Facebook page (with your grown-ups permission of course!) or you could email them to school.

We will be adding some new bits and pieces to this web page over the next few days and weeks that you might like to have a go at. You don’t have to do them all but hopefully you will find one or two activities that will interest you. Keep checking back for new additions!

We are not expecting you to do school work all day or even every day. We would love you to be playing in your garden, bouncing on the trampoline, playing a board game, doing some baking, helping your grown up around the house, making a den, building with Lego, trying some yoga etc. etc. There are so many wonderful things you could try – the list is endless!

Here is a list of activities and skills that we would love you to practise as much as possible (you might’ve heard us mention these once or twice at school!)

*Reading – please read as much as you can. Read to your grown up, to your brother or sister, to your pet or just to yourself. You can read absolutely anything at all – a story, a magazine, a website, a football programme, a fact book etc. There are lots of free online books that companies are making available while schools are closed too.

*Spellings – practise reading and spelling the 100 Common Exception Words for Year 3 and 4 (or the Common Exception Words for Year 1 and 2). They are in the middle of your ‘Reading Record’ but you will also find them online. Can you use them in a sentence? Do you know the meaning of the word? How many vowels and consonants are there in each word? Can you add any prefixes or suffixes? Can you think of any words which mean the same as the word?

*Times tables – everyone will have their TT Rockstars username and password. Just a few minutes every day on this will make a big difference. We recommend you stay in the ‘Garage’ unless you are confident with most times tables. The ones we need to learn by the end of Year 3 are : 2x , 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x and 10x. If you know the others already too that is super fantastic! Hit the Button is also an awesome game for practising your times tables.

*You can use your TT Rockstars username and password to access Numbots on the internet. The aim is to practise addition and subtraction facts. It starts off very easy but will gradually become harder as you work through the levels. Give it a go and let us know how you get on!

 *Have you tried the Joe Wicks workouts that are on every day at 9am on YouTube? What a great way to start your day – it will leave you feeling really energised and ready to get cracking!

*If you fancy something a little more relaxed why not have a look at ‘Cosmic Kids Yoga’ which is also on YouTube. You can choose from lots of different yoga ‘adventures.’ Mrs. Beck’s favourite so far is the Pokémon one!

Keep checking back on this page for new activities to try. Lots more coming soon!

Stay safe everyone.
