During this time I will be adding various links that will help your child to continue their learning from home. You should all have the extensive home learning pack and logins for PurpleMash and SumDog. These are two excellent and creative sites to engage children in learning. On the PurpleMash site there is opportunity for your child to hand in their work with a comment for me, hopefully this comment will tell me what they found easy and what was a challenge. As with any piece of work I am always looking for application of skills including sentence structure, parts of a sentence and the use of conjunctions, fronted adverbials to start a sentence.
I hope that you find this useful during the coming weeks.
I would like to draw your attention to an online teaching site that covers all the year groups and shows progression in teaching as if we were in school. There are video teaching broadcasts and lots of tasks for children to develop. For the most part I would recommend accessing the year 3 learning. However, some of you may want to delve further back into year 1 and year 2. I have googled 'oak national academy' and this has taken me straight to a format where I can access the year groups. It looks fantastic. So those of you that are able please have a go. I would say start at week 1 and build up.
Maths Mastery free resources
This is a web address you could try using to find activities on maths which will be in line with what we are teaching in school. I hope this is useful to you.

In the above block I have added a link to guidance on maths and English that is set out in a way that is taught in school. It will require you as the adult to share the learning with the children and show them how to complete the tasks, then there is a booklet that the children can work through,with increasing independence so they can show you their understanding, with opportunity for you to mark and consolidate any learning/understanding where necessary.
I hope you find this useful. I have included weeks 1 - 4 so far and after the Easter holidays I will add on further links as they become available.
Please find below a selection of sites where you access home learning activities. Some you will already have if you were able to collect your home learning packs, however, they will be updating and adding new activities, tutorials and help.
If I could ask you to spend a lot of time on the basics as well e.g. spellings, times tables, reading and understanding of the books they have read. That will be a great help in keeping your child on track for their return to school. I understand this may not seem as exciting as interactive activities but it is important and when they do hand work in it would be good to see evidence of their understanding of how to spell words previously learnt throughout school and new words.
I am going to add to the class page spelling lists from Year 1 up to year 3 so you are able to revisit. If children can learn the spelling pattern and use consistently that would be a great help.
We have had so many great pieces of homework in about our Roman topic, including detailed models and pictures!
