Whilst at home, make sure you are continuing to practise all the skills that you have learnt so far this year.
Keep up with your reading, you can log on to Bug Club, read your ARA or library book, read other books you have at home, read magazines, read annuals, read newspapers, read stories on a Kindle or online. It is always useful to discuss what you are reading. Remember that you can also create your own questions about the book. Test someone you have read to. How well did they listen?
Practise your maths as well. You have access to TTRockstars and Numbots. How many of your times table facts will you have learnt by the time you return to school. Don't forget that you will be tested on them in a national test in Year 4! Practise adding and subtracting numbers up to a thousand.
Keep working on your spellings. There is a list of all the words Year 3 and 4 should be learning on our main page for Year 3. Can you use them in your writing and create sentences using them?
There is nothing stopping you from writing at home, you can write it on sheets, in a book or on the computer. Can you write a story? Instructions? A report? A letter? A diary? A recipe? Think about how you are going to include all the things we have worked on. Adjectives, noun phrases, conjunctions, speech marks, tenses, questions, adverbs, impressive vocabulary... Can you explain what all of these are to your parents?
You may also have found some good educational games online that you can share with your friends. Don't forget that you can even challenge them on TTRockstars by playing against them in a Rockslam.
