Class 3

** Update ** 3.7.2020  
 
Hello, 
I hope you are all well. It was lovely to speak to many of you last week. If I did not manage to speak to you and you would like to say hello I am in school everyday so please feel free to call the school office. 
 
The Oak National Academy has some great lessons for children to work through related to English, maths, foundation subjects and PSHE. There are quizzes at the start of the units of work for maths and then videos and worksheet resources. At the end, there is a final quiz to review progress made. Please work through these lessons over the next few weeks- everything is relevant to your selected year group. https://classroom.thenational.academy/year-groups/ 
 
As usual, I have attached a document with activities for next week and I have dated resources to make them more easily accessible. 
 
Fun challenge for the week: 
1. Find a recipe of your choice and help cook something. Send me a photograph of what you make. 
2. Explore Edinburgh Zoo webcams to see the animals https://www.edinburghzoo.org.uk/webcams/panda-cam/ 
 
If you need any support, guidance or would just like to say hello, please do not hesitate to contact me via eschools or by phoning the school office. 
 
Best wishes, 
Mrs Gibbs

Reading: 
Encourage story sharing as much as possible. Books can be accessed for free at Oxford Owl
 
Tips for reading with your child can be found at Book Trust, where they also recommend several age appropriate books. 
 
In the resource section at the bottom of this page, I have attached the Reading Dogs bookmark, with some useful questions to promote a range of reading skills. 
 
 
Writing:
The Literacy Shed has a great selection of prompts for writing and suggested activities under the video clip. See activity sheet for the relevant week to find suggested activities. 
 
PE:
PE with Joe Wicks on YouTube at 9am on weekdays is a great way to get moving. It lasts for 30 minutes and includes a warm up, main activities and cool down. You can also watch videos from other days. 
 
Maths:
Please see above for 'Big Maths' and 'Activity Mats'. These are a great way to cover a range of mathematical skills. 
 
Hit the Button is a free resource that is useful for known facts such as times tables, division facts, number bonds and doubling/ halving. 
Times Tables Rocks children have logins to access this. If you need them again, please eschool me and I will get them to you ASAP.
