Welcome Year 3 to Google Classroom!

As mentioned on the phone, I have been diligently figuring out how to use Google Classroom ready for after half term and I am pleased to now officially introduce you all to this new way of learning in Year 3. The plan is to start off slowly this week with a couple of activities to get us all used to this new system.

You should have received an email from the school office with login details and some basic instructions so please make sure to try and log in to Google Classroom this week . If there are any problems accessing this please email or call the school office and we will try to help you as soon as possible.

Once you have logged in, you will find your first Google Classroom activity waiting for you! I have created a wellbeing daily journal for you all to complete each day as a way to check in with everyone during this time at home.

You will also see this week's Maths activities that can be completed and submitted online instead of the paper copy if you prefer.

I completely appreciate this is a new platform for us all, so I welcome your patience and understanding as we venture into this new way of combining our home learning packs with this remote learning platform.

I have put the links to specific chapters in all learning packs so far, but I have also put a copy of the book for each child in Year 3 to pick up from the school foyer as well (all books will need to be safely returned to school when current government guidelines allow the class to return).

If you are looking for extra challenges this week, then please scroll down this page and find our Spring topic of EXTREME SURVIVAL. There are lots of fun activities for you to complete and lots of exciting facts to find out!

Hi to all St George’s Class!

I will be creating a different home learning pack each week that will be available in the foyer at school for you to pick up. These will be a variety of Maths, English, Science and other fun educational activities for you to do at home. 

If you are not able to come into school the links for the next two weeks' packs are below:

 

Year 3 Home Learning Pack 18.01.21 and year 3 home learning pack 11.01.21 

 

 

I have set you all some maths challenges on SUMDOG and will be monitoring your activity and progress!

I will update them regularly and reward those who have taken part with Dojos and Sumdog reward coins.  

If you have forgotten your log in please do contact me via the 'myhomework' email address and I will send it individually to you.

Practise your times tables, so that you have quick recall - this will really help you with your Maths as times tables are a focus in Year 3.

You can find all the times tables to practice them HERE

Complete the times tables challenge that I have set you on SUMDOG and I will be rewarding you with dojos and gold coins!

 

Complete the spellings from this week’s learning pack and ask someone at home to test you on them.

Practise some Year 3 and 4 spelling words each week for extra spelling practice at home. You can find them HERE.

Joe Wicks is starting his PE workouts for children again on Monday 11th January. They will be 20 minutes long and airing Monday, Wednesday and Friday on his 'Body Coach TV' YouTube channel. As we are such an active class that love our PE lessons, I hope everyone will be participating at home and keeping active!

 

I will be awarding DOJOS to anyone who sends me pictures of their learning via the ‘myhomework’ email address, brings any finished work into school or logs into SUMDOG.

Well done to everyone who has been trying their best at home and sending me pictures of their learning.

Our topic for the Autumn term is...

 

Please click HERE to look at our topic booklet, explaining what we will be learning about this term in St George's class.

Our Stunning Start for this topic was a fun day of Ancient Egyptian-based activities where we all wore the six colours from the Ancient Egyptian colour palette which were green, red, blue, yellow/gold, white and black!

 

We took part in a treasure hunt around the playground to find clues to spell out the famous River Nile, we acted out being explorers and finding a mummy on an Egyptian adventure around a pyramid, painted our names in hieroglyphics, made up an Egyptian dance, created our own pyramids out of paper and tried some fruit juice which the Egyptians loved to drink!
