I hope you are all well and have had a good Eid. I will be ringing you every couple of weeks to find out how you all are. Phone calls will resume the week commencing 01.06.20. Thank you for your support with the Home Learning. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Following the school closure, children will be set tasks on a daily basis to complete at home. We have not yet had any information about whether Year 3 will be returning to school, therefore year 3 must continue to complete the home learning tasks. Once we have more information, we will contact you. On our Year 3 Class Page, there is a 'Home Learning' star. The Home Learning star will contain a weekly timetable, with details of the daily tasks that children must complete. Some of these tasks will be from the Individual Learning Packs that have been sent home, and some of these tasks will be online.
If you click on the 'Website' star, there are links to the websites children will need access to to complete their daily tasks such as Mymaths, SPAG, Purple Mash, Timestable Rockstar, White Rose Maths and Oxford Owl. There are also additional links to websites which will allow children to access educational activities. We will be checking the tasks that have been set for the children to see how they are doing.
Our topic this half term is 'How Does Your Garden Grow.'
Our focus this half term is Explanation Texts. We will be looking at lots of explanation texts and identifying their features. By the end of the unit, children will create their own explanation text including all the features..
In maths we will be focussing on Fractions, Bar Graphs and Charts and Angles. Maths activities will include booklets from the Home Learning Packs, The Abacus Books, BBC Bitezize and Online Learning material on MyMaths, Timestable Rockstar and Purple Mash. White Rose Hub have some extra Home Learning lessons which will be very useful for the children. The White Rose Maths material is accessible by clicking on the 'Online Websites' star.
This half term we will focus on identifying and describing the functions of different parts of a flower. We will explore the conditions required for a plant to grow healthily. We will investigate the way water is transported within plants and explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.
Design and Technology:
This half term children will be designing their very own greenhouse. Children will evaluate existing products so they have a starting point for their design. They will then move onto designing their greenhouse, identifying the strengths and weaknesses of their product. Children may bot have the equipment required to make their greenhouse at home, therefore after design we will move straight onto evaluating their designed product.
It is important to stay active, even in these worrying times. I have added Joe Wicks daily exercise in the 'Website' star. Implementing the Joe Wicks daily routine will allow you to stay fit and active. I have also added an additional link which will allow children to develop their fundamental skills.
Finally, although it is a worrying time, please stay safe, and we wish you all the best of health!
Miss Ahmed, Mrs Esmail and Miss Begum.
