Learning at Home
Good morning everyone,
As you know, schools in England are in the process of opening for children in Foundation, year 1 and year 6. The Government have stated that they would like children in the other primary year groups (year 3 included) to have a month of school before the summer holidays. As we wait for confirmation and further details of this, home schooling should continue as before the half term break. The only difference with this will be that I will not be 'setting' work as such in a weekly timetable. All of the links that you will need to continue with the home learning are on the attached document which will allow you to cover the ground that your child needs. You will of course be notified of any further development when or if it is officially announced.
Learning about online safety at home (ThinkUKnow)
ThinkUKnow have created a page to support parents and young people online. The site includes home activity packs with simple 15 minute activities to support children’s understanding of online safety at a time.
There is also parent support information for primary and secondary age groups.
The resources can be found here: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/Support-tools/home-activity-worksheets
Be SMART: Online Safety Video Lessons for 6 – 9 year olds (Childnet)
Childnet have released six new easy-to-follow videos for parents and children to work through together. The 10 – 15 minute videos offer simple, clear online safety advice using fun activities, games and discussion. There are optional follow-up activities to extend children’s learning.
The videos can be found here: https://www.childnet.com/resources/video-lessons

If your child needs less of a challenge, try the fraction work from Year 2 to begin with:
Keep chipping away at your times tables as much as possible. Once you have mastered (and I mean mastered!) your target table, keep going onto the next one in the following order:
