Home Learning w.c. 13.04.20
Hi Year 3!
I hope you've all had a great break and have been looking after yourselves and your families. Here is this week's home learning grid. I hope there are some things on here which are of interest to you, remember none of these suggestions are compulsory (something you must do) so please do not feel under any pressure to complete everything. I hope you're also spending some time learning about something you are interested in and doing things you enjoy! If you have any questions about what to do or would like to share what you have been up to with me please send an email to the home learning email address- I would LOVE to hear about what you've been up to! There is also some additional information at the bottom of this page for your parents to read if they feel they would like some guidance on home learning and how to help you. Remember we are thinking of you all and are looking forward to seeing you all when this is over and it is safe for us to return to school.
Keep safe and keep smiling!
Hamilton Trust English Home Learning for 13.04.20- Greek myths!
The grid for this week has a bit more detail on it, but please do not be daunted by this. A key point to remember is that if children are mentally engaged in a variety of tasks, keeping themselves active in some way and happy, then this in itself is a major achievement given the current circumstances. However, if you would like a suggested way of prioritising learning then please read on!
The main focus is to ensure regular reading practice and secure the reading and spelling of the 100 high frequency words and the Year 3/4 statutory word list and ensuring that children know and understand what these words mean. Practise reading these words and writing them out as this will aid memory and provide handwriting practise as well.
Secondly, prioritise learning of times tables and basic calculation. If you have access to the online resources then
please use these(Hit the Button, Beat That and Times Table Rockstars). If you are unable to do this, then please practise x tables by writing out, reciting and testing these with a family member.
After these key areas, use children's grammar and mental arithmetic books. Packs are in school if your child was away and you have not collected these yet. Answers and notes for grammar are on under the grammar tab and arithmetic answers are under the maths section of the website under curriculum. These will be published on a Friday.
Please then choose activities according to what you can reasonably accommodate according to your family circumstances, resources available (IT and practical), work commitments, and children's interest etc. We do understand that this may vary considerably from family to family and we are trying to carefully judge which learning activities to suggest. As we are trying to cater to a broad range of needs and circumstances, we have also provided some additional resources but there is absolutely no expectation that these should be completed, they are there to add variety to our overall offer.
Please do get in touch if you have any questions or would like further guidance- we are here to help in any way that we can.
With very best wishes,
The Year 3 team
