Wow, what a long but fantastic week it has been! We are so proud of you all this week. You have completed your learning with gusto, you have shown maturity with the live lessons and you have shown great resilience in continuing with the learning even when it has been a challenge!
Next week not only will you have access to the live lessons but we have also pre-recorded our voices over other lessons to provide you with a little more guidance. Hopefully, this may help to relieve some of the pressure for parents as this will be learning the children can access independently with our guidance.
Project – ‘Food around the world’
In English this week we will begin to look at our new book; ‘The Astounding Broccoli Boy’. Miss Bowen and Mr Thomas will be reading sections of this book and we will link our English learning to the different chapters.
Although we won’t be continuing with our weekly spelling tests, please continue to practice the Year 3 words at home – Year 3 weekly spelling lists for 2020-2021
Times Table Rockstars
All of the children have been sent home a username and password for Times Table Rockstars (TTRS). This is a fantastic website that we use throughout Key Stage 2 to help consolidate and continuously practice the children’s times tables. By the end of Year 2, children should be able to recall the 2, 5 and 10 tables and Year 3 the 3, 4 and 8’s. At the end of Year 4, all children nationally will complete a multiplication test up to 12×12 and these will be asked randomly so it is important they can recall them out of order.
Other curriculum news:
