During this time whilst children are currently not in school, we will be posting links and ideas on this page that can be carried out at home. Please help your child by maintaining their basic skills and knowledge for when we return to school.
As always, it is important that they continue to work on their spellings, reading and maths facts.
Thank you for your support,
Oak National Academy Online Lessons
Here you will find some online lessons in English, maths and some foundation subjects. Videos are used to help explain and teach different aspects of the curriculum.
We are currently set up for a trial of Numbots. It is linked to TTRockstars with a focus on improving their counting, addition and subtraction. Children can access the site using their usual TTRockstars login. If they are unsure of this login, the school office can help you if you phone the school.
We would welcome any feedback from children and parents on this site as it will help us to determine whether to subscribe to it long term.
List of Year 3 & 4 spelling words
On YouTube, there will be daily PE lessons available if you search 'PE with Joe'. These will be at 9:00am and last half an hour. If you are stuck indoors, there is no need to laze around, they will be a good way to start your day and use up some of that energy. Just make sure you have enough space.
PE: This is on Tuesdays, don't forget that we now come to school in our PE kits.
Library: We will be visiting the library every other week on Wednesdays for 3P. Children in 3T have library every other week on Fridays. If you bring your book to school every day in your bag then you will always have it ready to change if you need to.
Homework: We give out homework on Fridays and the deadline for bringing it back is the following Friday. Make sure your name is on every sheet! You have English and maths homework every week.
Reading: Your reading book should be brought to school every day. If you have an ARA book and have finished reading it, then you can complete the test in the morning and get a new book. Make sure you are reading every day. If you finish your reading book you can always read your library book, or others you have at home. Reading to other people is a great way to get better at reading.
Flashcards: Your flashcards can be a fun way to learn your times tables and spellings. Think of some of the games we have learnt in school with them and try them on your family. Regular testing will help you achieve that target of knowing all your times tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 3.
TTRockstars: This is a great resource that we have set up for you to practise your times tables at home. The more you play, the more coins you can earn to buy things for your character. It will also help you learn your tables really well. How well are you doing with your speed?
Don't forget to tell your family all about things you have learnt in school. You will remember knowledge better if you share it with others. You will always remember skills we have learnt if you show people what you can do as well.
