Welcome to the Summer term in these most unusual circumstances!
I never expected to start our Summer term with Home Learning in full effect, but this is the new normal at the moment and we are all finding a way through as we stay safe at home. We are living history right now and this will be something your children and grandchildren ask you about in the future. How will you remember it?
We still have lots of fun and engaging learning planned for this term although our Home Learning will focus on reinforcing and cementing key skills as we start the term.
Our main themes will be: ‘Our World’ through Geography and ‘How Does Your Garden Grow?’ through Science and I will do my best to provide engaging home learning opportunities around these themes.
To support the children’s learning at home, I will also ensure that there are Spelling Shed and Maths Shed assignments set twice a week in line with our curriculum.
Children should be encouraged to read every day. This could be chapter and picture book fiction, non-fiction or poetry books, magazines, e-books, online material, instruction booklets, gaming handbooks and even subtitles on their favourites tv programmes. All reading counts and is vital for building their VIPERS skills.
Please, please read with your child as often as possible. Enjoy sharing books together and visiting the library. We are happy to help you with recommended book suggestions if you would like some guidance. We cannot stress enough the importance of your child being a confident reader. In Year 3 there is also the Teacher Challenge where each child has to recommend one book they have read for me to read before the Summer holidays so let me know your recommendations and I’ll add them to my list!
It is important to us that we work together as a partnership to develop each child, so if you have any concerns at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Many thanks for your continued support. Keep safe and well.
