Home Learning 

If your child needs to self-isolate because of a family member having symptoms/testing positive for COVID 19 then they can access the daily work through the Seesaw app. or via class dojo. 

All children will have an individual log in and will be fully able to access and submit work through both sites. 

Please ensure your child stays at home if -

1. They are unwell.

2.  A family member tests positive for COVID 19.

Project

Our big question this term is...

Were the Ancient Egyptians awful or awesome? 

 

Medium Term Plan

 

Within this Project we will aim to answer as many of the following questions as possible -

Who were the Ancient Egyptians?

Why was Ancient Egypt the 'Gift of the Nile'?

Who were the Ancient Egyptian pharaohs?

Why did the Ancient Egyptians build the pyramids?

What was mummification in Ancient Egypt?

Who were the Ancient Egyptian gods?

What was discovered inside Tutankhamun's tomb?

Who was Cleopatra and how is she remembered?

 

English

This term, we will focus on folk tales/fairy tales.

The text we have chosen is called ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’ by Shirley Climo

which ties in nicely with our big question this term.


 

 

We will be looking at the text in detail before writing our own versions of some famous fairytales but with an Egyptian twist!

 

Maths

We will continue following the schools chosen scheme, White Rose.

Children will be working on - 

*Addition and subtraction beyond 100

*Fractions

*Time

*Mass and capacity

Autism Awareness Week

As part of Autism Awareness Week, we worked alongside Rochdale Additional Needs Service in the 'Super 7 challenge'. This was to raise awareness for Autism and to gain a better understanding of how we can support and understand those on the Autistic spectrum.

We created fact files based on famous people who have or are rumoured to have had Autism. We wrote our own acrostic poems about being unique using dictionaries and thesaurus' to help broaden our vocabulary. In Maths, we took on the challenge of thinking of as many calculations totalling 7 in only 77 seconds. On the Wednesday, we dressed in 7 colours before finishing off the week doing 7 laps of the playground and dancing non-stop for 7 minutes!

What a busy but fantastic week we had!

PE

The children in Year Three do outdoor PE everyday Wednesday. 

It is essential that your child has a sensible, clean P.E kit to wear including trainers for outdoor games.

Please could you ensure that your child has leggings or tracksuit bottoms and a sweatshirt for outdoor PE. 

Please clearly label all items with your child's name.

Homework

Spelling lists are given out weekly and will be tested.

Children are expected to access Times Tables Rockstars and Spelling Shed on a daily basis.

 

          

https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb/

Please encourage your children to access Spelling Shed. All weekly spellings are taken from spelling shed and class teachers are able to set challenges specific to the child, monitor progress and identify areas in need of more support. It is a fantastic and enjoyable resource to support children in their spelling and the children love it! If you need help with Spelling Shed, please contact the class teacher.

TT Rockstars is a great resource to support children in learning their times tables in a fun way. The children love it! Class teachers are able to set times tables specific to the child/year group, create battles against year groups, teachers and friends, monitor each individuals progress and identify areas in need of more support. If you need help with TT Rockstars, please contact the class teacher.
