YEAR 3

 

Dear children and parents, 

We will do all we can to support you with your continued development of education through the time that school is closed. 

Ideally, it would be great if you could:

- Do both a maths and a writing Learning task per day

- Produce a project book on any area of interest - complete 1 page per day.

- Continue to read as much as possible

To the best of my ability, I have tried to provide resources and links to help.

 

Reading

The expectation is that children will read for at least 15 minutes each day.

Here are two useful websites that children in year 3 can access to support reading, they are both free to use and I have set up accounts for the children so they can log in and use the resources as many times as they like.

 

1. Oxford Owl Reading Tree

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/ 

When on this webpage:

- press 'my class login'

- enter login details: 

class name: homereader

password: Lovetoread

- select 'my bookshelf'

Here you can scroll through lots of e-books, you can filter by age range or themes, you will be able to read the books, all also offer audio so that it can be read to you. Great resource!

 

2. Epic!

https://www.getepic.com/

When on the webpage:

- Press 'students'

- Enter class code: vle9920

- Press 'guest student'

Here you can scroll through lots of e-books, there are also videos to watch. Another great resource!

Learning Tasks

WELL DONE TO ALL THE CHILDREN WHO COMPLETED THE WORK FROM LAST WEEK, I HAVE BEEN MONITORING YOUR WORK ON PURPLE MASH, I AM SO VERY PROUD OF ALL OF YOU. KEEP IT UP! :)

The learning tasks given here should be completed every day where possible. Children should be reading for at least 15 minutes per day, either your own books at home or an e-book accessed as above. I will set a Maths and writing task per day…

Maths – Below there is a PowerPoint presentation to assist learning to tell the time throughout the week.

Purple Mash

Some of the tasks may require the children to use the Purple Mash website. I have already briefed the children about how to use this tool, they practiced in class and they have all been given their own individual login details and passwords. You can find these stuck on the inside page of their learning book.

Purple Mash contains lots of learning resources that the children can access at their own leisure and there may also be some tasks that I have assigned.

To access assigned tasks:

  1. Go to https://www.purplemash.com/sch/sta-ol4
  2. Enter the childs personal ID and password.
  3. Press the ‘2dos’ logo in the top left hand corner.
  4. In there the children will find tasks that have been assigned to them specifically from me.
  5. Once they have finished they press 'save and exit'.
  6. Enter a file name with their name in it and save it to the year 3 file. This will be saved and sent to me so I can see that they have been completing tasks and I can even give them feedback on their work.
