I hope everyone is well. I will be updating this page with daily activities for your child to complete (though they may need some guidance with some of it).
There will be a section below this introduction that I will update with general resources. The daily tasks will be added to underneath - firstly as a Word document but then with links as well. I will set tasks according to our usual class timetable to a certain extent, but there will be more exercise activities as children will not be in the playground! It would be nice to see some of your creative exercises and adventures around the home too.
You are welcome to do additional activities or change activities to suit you, please understand that our usual lesson style and format of sessions will not be possible at this time.
Please take photos and email work produced as I will save it in your pupil's work folder on the school network. I will comment on and feedback where appropriate, obviously your own comments in person and at the time to your child will be beneficial to their learning and progress. You can photograph or email to tell me about fun and educational activities you do too, I will appreciate these as I am already missing the daily news and stories from home.
If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact me on the our Class 3 email - email@example.com and I will reply as soon as I can.
Take care and look after yourselves.

Children's Changing Places Easter Party Activities! The Children's Changing Places group, which is linked to the Diocese, has asked every school to share this resource with their families. There are some nice Easter activities included. However, a number of the suggestions require specific resources that families might not have access to, so please do not feel any pressure to use it or to complete all the activities! It might just give you some nice ideas of things to do as a family during what would have been the official Easter break.
This is a list that I have compiled based on what we use in class and also some offers of Free access for parents during the School Closure time. If you have any difficulties or find any others, please email me on the class email.
I may set tasks/ challenges/ competitions using these websites – all children have passwords. If they have forgotten/ lost these, please contact me via the Class email address.
www.ttrockstars.com – The children are used to using the Times Tables section but we also have free access during the outbreak to Numbots which also has brilliant games on number facts
www.hitthebutton.com – Times Tables, Number bonds, Halves/ Doubles etc.
www.ictgames.com – mainly Key Stage 1 but some valuable skills that need consolidating in Year 3
www.topmarks.co.uk – LOTS of games online to access for free – Maths and English
Twitter - @keypesports (Mr Fenton amongst other PE teachers) will be sharing videos/ resources/ challenges/ ideas of how you can keep children active at home. They will be posting this information every day at 10am.
Youtube – www.youtube.com/rockkidzuk (they did Rock Kidz concert with us last year) are offering free, online sessions (Fun PSHE content, Live music, daily exercise and interactive competitions and prizes.) THEY ARE LIVE DAILY AT 2pm
Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) Daily PE Workouts https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ From what I understand, if you subscribe (free) to this YouTube channel daily workouts will be shown every weekday morning at 9:00am
**Please always be mindful of adverts as these are not linked to content**
The general format for the daily plans will firstly be a word document that outlines an overview (and explanation) of activities/ tasks for the day.
There will then be some links to any resources that are referenced in the daily overview.
Some days the activities might all be practical and not require additional downloads. You can complete work on paper or email me pictures/ files that you have done and I will try to respond when I can.
If anyone has forgotten their log in details for any of the Maths sites/ Purple Mash or would like the password for the AMAZING research site, Britannica for children, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thursday 2nd April - check through the Daily Activities sheet first as you do not need to print all of this - you choose from them or you can just refer to them on the screen! * 12 children haven't accessed and others haven't completed the Prodigygame task so please ensure you do this TODAY as it closes at the end of the day.
Oh, some of you found the 4x4 Magic squares activity difficult. My top tip is to look for one of the sides where three out of the four numbers are already given. Then, you can figure out what the ONE remaining number is. Keep looking for rows/ columns/ diagonals where you have 3 given and it will get easier and easier! It was meant to be a challenge so don't worry if you found it difficult.TOMORROW WILL BE LESS PRINTING AND MORE HANDS ON ACTIVITIES! AND THEN IT'S EASTER HOLIDAYS! :)

Wednesday 1st April Hi to everyone! I hope that you are not going to do too many April Fools Day tricks! Some updates from the work - the 3D work - the two sites gave mixed messages on how many vertices a cone has. This is debatable depending on where you look and people often disagree, depending on which definition you use. In general, I have advised that it has 1 vertex (but you aren't technically wrong if you said 0!). Most Primary sites/ advice seems to go for this. Secondly, the Geography task on Monday was only discussion based - don't worry if it wasn't a greatly technical discussion as I just wanted the children to be 'detectives' to look at the country to guess what it is like. We will revisit this when we get back. Lastly, I understand that as time goes on, the children may have more questions and may be anxious and I have found a few social stories that would help you to address these together and also with younger/ slightly older children. I would particular recommend the story of 'Small Paul'. They can be found on https://www.bignoldprimaryschool.co.uk/social-stories-5/

Wow! Today has been glorious! I hope you took advantage of it and did some reading in the sunshine! I've purposefully put some activities outside for tomorrow so that you aren't stuck in front of a computer! Apologies for the PurpleMash activity today - I had feedback that it was not saving for everybody and Mrs Angold and I are trying to get to the bottom of it. This must have been frustrating and I am sorry. Also, it is great that so many of you are doing the lessons and sending me evidence/ photos and also marking at home. I know some are doing it a day behind so they can get things printed away from home and this is perfectly fine! If there is too much, do what you can and just let me know in the email, I understand it may not all get done and there are issues such as one computer for a family to access. It is wonderful that you are trying so hard and keeping learning and active.
Congratulations to the Top 5 children of Pippa, Holly B-N, Arthur, Harrison and Rosa! They all answered between 420 and 577 questions in two days - very impressive! You will all get 3 Dojos when we get back to school! Most of the class has been on and LOADS of questions have been answered, we are proud of you Class 3!

Hi again, I hope you all had a good day. Don't worry if you don't get through everything each day. Do your best, that is all we ask. I had this link emailed to me by The National Curriculum and thought I would share it with you - I'm not advising getting any of these but there are some good links for workbooks related to all parts of the Year 3 (and others) Curriculum that would support learning at home. You are fine to do activities suggested by myself and other colleagues without spending money though!

Right, on to the Sumdog competition! Well done to Jess H who is up there at the top with Pippa and Sofia not far behind! Max, Harr
