Home Learning


Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, and families having to self isolate, we have setup Google drives to share work for the year 3 pupils to access from home so that they have the opportunity to continue their education in line with the curriculum long-term overview.  There are some informative Power Points which the children can use to research areas of Ancient Egypt, alongside their own research, to produce pieces of work in their Learning Log books, we encourage them to be as creative as possible.


The children can access this work and information independently, by clicking the folders below.


In addition to this work the children can continue to use the e-learning platforms that the school have bought into such as My Maths, Education city and Timestables Rock Stars.  We will periodically update the My Maths platform.  


Children should continue to read regularly and practice their spellings.  


For more specific learning activities in Maths, Literacy and Science and to access worksheets within these areas, please visit the parents tab and click on the Home Learning Support.  Within the Weekly Home Learning Activities for Year 1 to 6 and the Year 3 link, there are lots of Power Points, activities and ideas for your child to complete at home.

Guided Reading sessions and reading across the curriculum will enable children to develop a love of reading.  Please help your child by listening to them read for 10-20mins every night!  Reading Records should be signed regularly and they will be collected every Thursday for a member of staff to sign.  Children should change their reading books regularly throughout the week, whenever they need to.
