Year 3 – Home Learning
Welcome to the Year 3 Home Learning Page.
Home learning for week beginning 29 June 2020 will be on Google Classroom
As we begin our move to Google Classrooms it’s important that you read the following letter
Please do as much of these activities as you would like to and share your learning with us at [email protected] There are lots of helpful resources and ideas on this page and we have left activities from previous weeks, which you may find helpful.
When your child is online, make sure that they are supervised at all times and you can see what is on their screen. For extra security, apart from the parental settings, you can download YouTubeKids on any tablets and Ipads to give children a more contained and safe environment.
Take a look at the Oxford Owl Reading scheme
You will need to register with your name, email address and date of birth of your child.
Following the feedback received via our Home Learning Survey, many thanks to those who filled that in, we have been informed that many families do not have a printer. Therefore we request that you download the activity sheet and save it under your child’s name. Your child can then fill in some of the questions online and return it to us at [email protected] on Friday.
If you prefer to download the file and print it off that is fine too. You can then upload it or photograph the activity sheet and return it to us that way.
Remember to save the file each day so no previous work is lost.

In celebration of International Francophonie (French Speaking) Day on March 20th we are inviting all children to participate in a research based, cross curricular learning project about a French Speaking Nation. These projects should be brought back to school upon our return so that we can congratulate the children on their home learning and share them with the wider school community. Here are some suggestions of the things you could include in your project:

Contents Page – this may be easier to complete at the end once all other pages have been completed and ordered, or created and added to as the project is developed.
