Welcome to Year 3/4 - Owls!
I hope that you have all had a great time over half term and that your Eid has been full of blessings!
I am looking forward to speaking with the children again over email and as usual work will be set every day for them. Just a reminder that Miss Ashton also sets work for the pupils on Purple Mash so please try and keep up to date with that too.
Take care and all the best!
Summer 1 2020
Useful websites for Parents:
As the national lockdown continues, there are more and more resources available online that Parents and Carers can access online so that the learning support you give your child is made easier. The 2 new resources that I would like to share with you can be found using the following links:
Please use the above websites and follow the links that you need and do let me know your thoughts on this!
Extra Tasks (optional):
You can enjoy maths lessons with Carol Vorderman
Take a tour of a museum, zoo or theme park from the comfort of your sofa.
Educational programs can also be found on CBeebies, CBBC and on CITV. You can tune into Newsround too.
Mathletics - https://login.mathletics.com/
I have set some Mathletics activities for you that are specifically differentiated for you to make good progress. Please complete the tasks and I will save the certificates that you’re achieving!
Times Table Rockstars - www.ttrockstars.com
Keep practising your 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x and 10x tables.
PE – Joe Wicks workout
Joe has devised a workout for you to do at home as a family.
He is live on YouTube at 9.30 am every morning – search for P.E. with Joe. Exercise in the morning will wake you up and make you feel good for the rest of the day. My own children (and myself) take part in this and it really does get you set up for the rest of the day!
Reading - Keep reading with an adult for at least 5 minutes each day. It can be your reading book, your library book or a comic/magazine that interests you. Get them to ask you finding and thinking questions about what you have read.
OTHER USEFUL WEBSITES
Purple Mash - https://www.purplemash.com/login/
Purple Mash is a fantastic tool that has lots of different activities on for your children to explore. It is used in school to help children with their learning across many areas of the curriculum. To login to the website you will first need to find the school’s login page by clicking on ‘Find my school’s login page’. Then you will need your child’s login details which were sent home at the start of the Autumn term.
Scholastic Learn at Home - https://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/support/learnathome/grades-prek-k.html (Alternatively you can use google to search for ‘Scholastic Learn at Home’)
This is a website that has been set up specifically for school closures. It has stories and activities based around various different topics that link to your children’s learning. More activities are being added to the site every day.
Sumdog - https://www.sumdog.com/
Sumdog is similar to Mathletics as teachers can set work and view the children’s progress. It has different tasks relating to reading, spelling and mathematics. When your child logs in they will have some ‘quick fire questions’ and they may need some adult support with these. After this they will be able to access the tasks and these are all in game form so the children will really enjoy playing them as well as practising the different skills. Each child has an individual login and this will be given to your child to take home. As with the rest of these websites we do recommend that you play the games alongside your children as they may need some initial help to follow the instructions.
