Welcome to Year 3
The teachers working in Year 3 are Mrs Beighton (Leicester), Mr Wood (Manchester), Miss Horton (York) and they are supported by Miss Smith, Mrs Garratt, and Mrs Green.
We also have support from Miss Knell-Davies and Mrs Shaw from the ERF team and on some days the classes are taught by Mrs Simcox, Mrs Waite and Mrs Allinson.
During this time of home learning, please see your child's Class Dojo page for daily updates and learning activities. Staff are really enjoying seeing all the activities children are sending in and telling us about. We are also there if you have any questions about your child's learning and work set.
Thank you for your patience as we get used to this new way of working :-)
Below are some useful websites which we use in school. Some of them provide information, some games, some videos or songs. Take a look.......
Newsround Catch up on the days news in a child friendly programme
BBC Bitesize KS2 From Monday 20th of April there will be daily lessons in various subjects. Lots of useful texts and videos to look at.
ERF All children at Langley Mill Academy learn a second language - British Sign Language. On the ERF section of our website there are lots of useful resources including a Learning at Home section.
In our daily maths lessons in Year 3 we use many resources from the White Rose Scheme for learning.
Whilst we are home learning, these sessions can be accessed daily via your child's class dojo page or via the link below. The Easter holidays would cover weeks 3 & 4 if you want to have a look at any of these. We will start posting again daily, after the holidays, on Monday 20th of April.
The Maths Factor with Carol Vorderman is another site currently offering free daily maths lessons whilst you are at home.
One of the aspects of maths we focus on is our mental maths including times tables. The Top Marks website has lots of great maths challenges including Daily 10 - which is a race against the clock to complete mental maths challenges. You can set your own level, the number of seconds you have to answer and choose different aspects of maths such as times table, partitioning or fractions. Why not challenge yourself to have a go a few times a week and try and beat your previous score?
Also below we have included some links to other website to help with maths learning. Our tables focus for Year 3 are the 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times, including the related division facts.
Could you create a display to help you remember your times tables? In school we have the numbers with all the tables facts for that number written inside. Post on your class dojo page so we can see what you come up with.
If in doubt - read! But at least 3 times a week. You can read a book, magazine, set of instructions, web page.
Maybe you could find a series of books you enjoy?
J.K.Rowling has recently made many of her Harry Potter resources free to use. See the link below for the Harry Potter at Home site.
If you're not sure what to read there is a link below to the Y3 reading list with suggested books for children aged 7-8. Why not have a look?
Why not write or video a book review of a book you have read which someone else in your class might enjoy? If you post them on Class Dojo, your teacher will be able to share them with others in your class.
David Walliams is reading a story every day - we have enjoyed many of his stories in school such as Demon Dentist, Gangsta Granny and World's Worst Children.
Could you read a poem aloud - if it's a short one you could challenge yourself to learn it. Record yourself or write it out in your neatest, joined writing and pop it on Class Dojo to share with the class. SURELY THE GROWN-UPS SHOULD BE DOING THIS CHALLENGE TOO...?
These are the spelling which Y3/4 need to be able to spell in addition to their weekly spellings. Have a go at writing them out in different ways ( a few at a time!), such as rainbow writing, bubble writing or writing them in sand.
TOPIC AND OTHER SUBJECTS
After the Easter break we will upload our new knowledge organiser which will tell us about our learning for Summer Term on 'Origins - Robin Hood - Myth or Legend?'
Part of this topic is work on castles - could you find out about why castles were built and where? Maybe you could make a model or do a drawing of one and label some of the parts - moat, turret etc and explain their function.
Go Noodle is a site which has lots of videos, songs, exercises and dance routines. Its also great for Mindfulness activities - Warning...... some of these songs are very annoying and you will start to sing them and drive your grown ups mad!
