Year 3 Home Learning/Activities
Writing task/write a daily diary
Art/creativity (of your choice)
Sport – keep active
These tasks should not take up the whole day – do it in short bursts! Spread it out between breaks/lunch/activities
Other ideas to engage children in learning:
Write a diary. What a fantastic thing to show their grandchildren (who hopefully won’t have to endure such testing times!)
Write to a penpal. There are lots of online resources popping up to facilitate this (e.g. https://www.uniqueclassrooms.com/penpals.html). Or what about set up the opportunity for your child to use your email address to write daily to one (or more!) of their friends at school?
Learn to touch type. Again, lots of online platforms. Try: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zf2f9j6/articles/z3c6tfr
Keep a writing journal. Encourage any and all writing. Let them write freely and creatively – don’t ‘mark’!
Play – boardgames, jigsaws, cards etc. Social interaction with family will be key in supporting mental health as well as developing practical maths and reading skills. If you have a new game, have them read and explain the instructions.
Gardening – we have been learning about plants in science. Facilitate the opportunity for the children explore and show you what they know. Link to ecology. Can you grow your own food…? Grow a sunflower and measure its growth!
Art – paint, draw, sculpt and express! Resist the urge to correct! Guide children to explore materials and provide opportunities to copy, trace, make patterns etc. No art is bad art. If children ask ‘is this good?’ remind children that its good if someone (anyone!) likes it…and of course you do, (because they did it)! www.pinterest.com is excellent for inspiration!
USEFUL WEBSITES FOR ON LINE LEARNING
- Mathletics (their log in should be inside their maths homework books. https://login.mathletics.com/
English / Reading
- Khan Academy (grade 2-3). -This is a useful website with many cross-curricular activities. https://www.khanacademy.org/
If you can get outside, even in the garden, remember to go out for some fresh air and where possible do some home learning outside, play games and keep active.
Please do not feel like children should be sitting and working the entire time!
