Welcome to the Year 3 School Closure Page
Hello Year 3 parents and children,
Now that the Government has signalled the closure of schools from the end of this week these pages will be updated with work and activities for children to complete during the time the school is closed.
We will be sending a home learning book home with a pencil for your child to use to document their learning in if you wish, over the period of time that the school is closed.
Your work for the week will be emailed to you by Monday morning at 9 am. We will be setting work via Purple Mash, White Rose maths and email. Please check your emails on Monday morning for the work for the week!
A list of useful websites has been uploaded below and has also been uploaded onto the school closure - general information page. This could help you extend your child's learning further.
As well as the work provided we expect you to still be using Times Tables Rockstars to help your child practice their multiplication skills, and to be maintaining regular reading at home. This could be a good opportunity for your child to practice their reading skills and grow in confidence in their ability.

Working from Home
Work will now be set via Purple Mash, Times Table Rock Stars, White Rose and via email. Please follow the timetable below so you know what to be completing each week.
All of the work will be set on these websites for the entire week on the Monday of that week by 9am. We do not expect you to complete all of the tasks on the first day. You have the whole week to complete them.
Week beginning 18/5/20 -
Maths - Use the link to the White Rose website - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ and complete the tasks under Week 1.
Writing - Check your email for more detail on this learning.
Reading - The reading tasks will be set via Purple Mash (check your 2dos).
Please use the class email addresses should you have any questions.
We hope you are all safe and well and look forward to seeing the work you create!

Year 3 and 4 spellings...
It would be a good idea to keep practicing the Year 3 and 4 spellings whilst at home. This could replace our weekly spelling tests, and act as great words to focus on for handwriting practice. It would also be a good idea to look up the dictionary definitions for the words you practice and put them into sentences of your own so you can use them in context. If you don't have a dictionary at home, type the word into Google and it will give you the definitions.
You need to check your email every Monday morning. Your Reading tasks will be set on Purple Mash on the Monday for you to complete in the week. I will be setting Maths tasks via White Rose Maths https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ . Your Writing task for the week will be outlined in your Monday morning email and will be based around our topic of 'The Ancient Egyptians'. I suggest completing one or two extra activities from your activity workbook each week - this can be found on the school closures section of our website. I've shown all of the children how to access Purple mash and will be monitoring the work produced carefully, as well as how much time your child is spending on Times Tables Rockstars. I look forward to seeing your amazing work Robins and lets all try our best to carry on as normally as we can at this time.
Thank you and hopefully see you soon,
P.S - I have set up a class blog on Purple Mash so we can all stay up to date on what everyone is getting up to. Use this page to show us pictures of anything you have been doing and write about your time over the holidays. This will be monitored by myself daily and I'll try and add some of my own updates on there too!
You need to check your Purple mash alerts every morning. Your Maths and English will be set everyday (from 30/3/2020). Topic will be set on the Monday of that week and should be completed by the end of the week. We suggest completing one or two extra activities from your activity workbook each week - this can be found on the school closures section of our website. Mr Broad has shown all of the children how to access Purple mash. Work will be monitored carefully, as well as how much time your child is spending on Times Tables Rockstars.
Thank you and hopefully see you soon,
