Home Learning

Firstly we would like to thank you all for your support, kind words and efforts with home learning during these difficult and unprecedented times. 

We as a staff are fully aware of the challenges that could face our children who have not had the opportunity to return to school before September.  Throughout the last few months, we have worked hard to prepare learning and packs to help our hard working pupils to continue to learn whilst not at school.

As the summer holidays approach, we understand that many of your children may want to access some learning materials across this time.  There will be no compulsory homework set over summer, however, as a staff, we have collated a wealth of online accessible learning platforms that we hope you find useful should you wish to do further learning during the holidays.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support with ‘Teams’. Over the summer term, we have successfully trialled the use of Microsoft Teams with Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and some Year 5 children. Over the summer holidays, we will not being using ‘Teams’ and accounts will be suspended until September. This new system will play a pivotal role for school in September and this trial has proved useful in identifying how it can be used in school to promote learning and good outcomes.

Year 3 Curriculum Letter Spring Term

ENGLISH - THE CREAKERS

In Year 3 this half term we have been reading 'The Creakers' by Tom Fletcher.  We have loved our book and we are currently producing some brilliant work.  We have been writing about what we would do if we woke up to find our parents missing! Writing in the form of a diary we were able to think about our thoughts and feelings and what the world might be like to be free from adults! We then had a class debate 'Should the parents of Whiffington come back?'.  There were some great arguments but overall we felt that the parents should return!  So impressed with how many children have purchased the book, bringing it in to read along! We are very excited to find out what happens next! 

 

 

 SCIENCE

We are currently studying rocks.  We really enjoyed this lesson where we were able to look at the characteristics of different rocks and group them.

P.E  

We have been learning about Lobster Ball in P.E during this first half term with Mr Green.  We have to work together as a team trying to force our opposition to make mistakes.  We even had officiating and coaching from each other! We really enjoyed it.
