In light of the recent news about school closures across the UK, please find some guidance for home learning below, as well as a list of useful websites.
There will be assignments and activities set daily on Google Classroom, so please remember to check each morning to see what needs doing. The timetable below shows a suggested guide for the week and we will aim to keep the tasks on Google Classroom broadly in line with this, however, feel free to supplement this with other ideas or time spent on the educational websites listed further down this page. You may also take the opportunity to equip your child with life skills during the coming weeks - involve them in cooking, housework, teach them how to sew on buttons, how to operate the washing machine, etc.
English and Maths
All children in Year 3 have login details for the following: Times Tables Rockstars, Spelling Shed and Google Classroom.
Times Tables Rockstars and Spelling Shed should be used regularly to practise times tables and spellings. Please contact the school office if your child has lost their login information.
Remember to encourage your child to read daily and find books which they enjoy. Libraries across Norfolk have increased the number of books which you may take out at a time and will not be enforcing fines, so you may like to make use of the local library whilst it remains open. Additionally, you can download e-books for free using the Norfolk Library Service app https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/libraries-local-history-and-archives/libraries/library-services/libraries-mobile-app
'Libby' and 'Borrowbox' are other apps which allow you to download e-books to read for a limited time.
Children have also brought home Power Maths books. We will post information on Google Classroom asking for particular pages to be completed, so please try to ensure children are following our guidance. If your child was not in school when these were sent home, you can collect one from the school office.
Topic related tasks will be posted on Google Classroom throughout the week. Recommended websites for children to use whilst researching Ancient Greece are:
*Please monitor your child’s online activity carefully, as some versions of Greek myths and legends and information about Gods and Goddesses is not appropriate reading for children! We strongly recommend supervision and use of the above websites, which children are familiar with from school.
Lots of ideas of stimuli and projects that can be done at home, with videos to support at https://www.accessart.org.uk/art-resources-for-home/
