For this final week, we have a change to our normal home learning. You will not find the usual booklets on the class webpage.
Instead we have put together a summer holiday home learning booklet for you and a reflection booklet ready for moving to your new class.
The summer home learning booklet contains a range of activities to help keep you occupied over the next six weeks. You will find a variety of tasks linked to spellings, handwriting, reading, writing, maths and times tables. The reflection booklet is a great way for you to think about what you have achieved this year and goals to set yourself for next year.
Of course, there are no expectations for you to complete all of these tasks or try to follow a normal school routine during the summer holiday. If you have some spare time and are not sure what to do, we are here to help you with some suggestions. It is an extra resource for you to have at hand if needed. It will though be a great way to keep your skills up ready for a new start in September!
Hello and welcome to Class 3's school closure page. As schools are still not fully open, we will be keeping you updated on this page with learning activities and ideas.
Here is the joint booklet for Year 3 and Year 4 for this week. You can download it below or you can collect a printed copy from the school foyer.
You also have a separate booklet that includes your new spelling words and Time Table Rockstar challenges for the week. Again, you can download it below or you can collect a printed copy from the school foyer.
Previous chapters are in the older weekly folders near the bottom of this page.
We will still be using our Class Dojo page as a way of communicating and sharing things so do please keep posting on there with all the wonderful things you have been up to.
If you prefer to try some online lessons, then check out BBC Bitesize for a range of daily activities. The online lessons appear daily so check out the schedule below to see what is going to appearing soon.
New lessons and resources are provided each week. You can either follow the daily suggestion or pick and choose lessons that are of interest to you.
Starting Monday 1st June, I will planning for and teaching my 'bubble' full time. You will find that other adults are having the pleasure of seeing and commenting your fabulous creativity and work , although I will still be able, at the end of the day, to answer any questions you might have. I will post a message each morning on Class Dojo and will do my best to have a look at some of your work during the week. I will also continue to post recordings of 'The Beast of Buckingham Palace' here. If you haven't started listening, and want to, the other chapters are still there in the other weekly sections.
Photocopied packs of work for each week are available to collect from the front entrance porch after 10am on the Monday at the beginning of each week.
There is absolutely no suggestion that children work all day, but some structure can be helpful. Some days will be easier to do this than others. We recognise that some of you are also trying to work from home or care for others. Equally, there are some fantastic home learning projects being devised by yourselves. Whatever way you choose, or are able to work, is entirely up to you.
We will be rewarding any work posted on your portfolios with five dojos each day. This will be for the whole day and not for the number of tasks, as this might add additional unnecessary pressure.
White Rose Maths (similar to our class maths lessons)
This site has five daily lessons per week.
They have a short video, explaining the lesson and a worksheet to complete. You could download this or just write the answers in your exercise book.
The children have their logins in their home learning and closure work packs. Please message me on Class Dojo messages if you need your login sent.
The children have logins for this site also. I will set up a weekly maths competition, which the children can enter. It also has a spelling section.
Exercising is good for the body but also helps to make us happy!
This is obviously more tricky when we can't get outside as much as we'd like to.
