Week 7

Hello Year 3!  Here are your activities for this week. Suggested activities will be added daily. Remember to read the activity carefully and do your best. If you need help, ask someone at home. You are all doing a fantastic job and thank you for sharing your learning with us - please keep sending us your work!

 

Extra Maths During Lockdown

Some parents have been asking for more work for their child/ren. White Rose Maths is a scheme that some of our year groups already follow and they are providing daily maths work for children from Early Years - Year 8. Please follow the link below and click on the year group of your choice - you will then need to follow the instructions on that screen. Please be patient as this website does sometimes crash when there are too many people across the country trying to access it as it is such a great resource. Please note that there are no extra sheets available but during the video, there are chances for the child to practise what is being taught and then the teacher will go over through it.

We are pleased to see many of you using Accelerated Reader but know some of you have had some problems.  Here are some instructions to help you out.  We have also included the texts on the Read-on website with details of their ZPD level to hopefully make it easier for you to use.
