Summer Term Information
Class code for google classroom: vopfpdz
Dear Year 3 Parents/Guardians,
I do hope that you have had a lovely Easter break. We will be continuing this term with our Google Classroom Learning. Lessons will be uploaded each day at 9am. In order for your child to continue making good progress in their learning, it is important that you are engaging with the online learning daily and uploading images of the work onto the google classroom to be marked and commented upon. I am always available to help you through any difficulties that may arise.
Below is our topic grid for the this term – Vocanoes, Mountains and Earthquakes. However, for the first two weeks we will be reviewing learning of Rivers, Oceans and Seas, I have attached the two weeks of home learning activities for this topic and there are also lots of links and websites on Google Classroom also, under the ‘topic’ tab.
Children should listen to and watch the powerpoint presentations for both Maths and English daily, these are only up to 10 minutes long and children may pause and refer to these powerpoints to complete their work. Once work has been completed please remember to upload a picture of the work and upload pictures of your child doing the activities onto our google classroom.
In English, we will be focussing on a Fable narrative for the first three weeks. Children will listen to me reading our story ‘Fox’ which will enagage them in what a fable story is and we will then continue to change another, similar fable story – thinking carefully about how we can create atmosphere using interesting vocabulary. In Maths we will continue with time, remember telling the time throughout the day in both 12 and 24 hour clock will help with this often tricky topic!
Please find below the topic work to be chosen from over the next two weeks and the topic grid for Vocanoes, Mountains and Earthquakes. Don’t forget to take a photo and put it onto Google classroom for us to see!
Reading is also important and it will help with expanding your child’s vocabulary! I have added more e-books onto Google Classroom but you are also welcome to complete the reading tasks grid using your own books at home. Also, there is a fun reading challenge that you can do along with the book that you are reading here.
There is still also an opportunity to enter the NWAT 500 word writing competition. Prizes will be in Waterstones vouchers for children. Please ensure that pictures of the entries are clear and readable and include your school name, full name and year group, or enter them onto Google classroom and we can submit them for you. Closing date Friday 1st May 2020 – 500 word writing competition
Please remember if you have any concerns to get in touch.
Miss Notarpippo and Mrs Jones.
