Home Learning

Please look here for information about learning activities during our school closure. Children have been given separate exercise books to record their work in which need to be brought back to school when we return. There will be some prizes for the best homework!

 

 

'FIRST NEWS' is a children's newspaper which we read in school, and there is also an online weekly version of it now. Please click on the icon to get reading...

Burton Albion - BACT 2.6 Challenge

We are supporting Burton Albion's charity challenge. Click on the document below to find out more details about how you can help to support this challenge.

 

 

Mrs Arif has found this lovely, illustrative book about what the feeling worried feels like and looks like physically. It would be lovely to share this with your child (children) during this unsettled time. The link is below.

Fancy a challenge?

This is a different way of creating a rainbow. You could then put this in your window.

We are having lots of fun with our home learning...

British Values   

As part of our British Values in Year 3, we will be learning about democracy by encouraging the children to make decisions together. One of the ways we will be doing this is by holding class votes. We vote for our School Council representatives and also vote for our Behaviour Ambassador each half term.

 

Mutual respect and tolerance of each other are part of the values underpinned in Year 3, and the importance of accepting, respecting and valuing the feelings and views of others is embedded in the day to day learning. We will be learning about similarities and differences, and how these should be celebrated. Children are always encouraged to develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, and to express their needs and opinions. 

 

The children are taught the importance of having rules and routines in place within the school and classroom, and how they contribute to making our school a safe and happy environment. They are always encouraged to think about their actions and make good choices.  Our Behaviour Ambassador helps children to make the correct choices.

 

We will work together to help one another and to make Year 3 Poplar a great class!

Homework

 

Homework tasks will be set at the beginning of each half term and will relate to our learning in school. Children will be able to choose which tasks they would like to complete. Reading and spellings should be practised every week. Homework should be returned by the end of the half term.

Creative Curriculum

 

Our topics enable us to develop and apply knowledge and skills in different areas of the curriculum, such as history, geography and art.  These lessons take place during the afternoon.  Where possible, we go on educational visits or invite visitors in, so that we develop our learning and understanding more.  These are the topics that we will be covering each half-term.
