Year 3 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 3
I hope everyone is doing well in this uncertain time! Please see the school closure timetable below, all resources are found in the home learning pack, or can alternatively be accessed on the website. All packs not collected are in the front office. If you can collect this will make home learning easier and has all the resources mentioned in the timetable.
- I update this page regularly and I'm setting frequent tasks and challenges on both TT rockstars, Numbots and Sumdog which I can see and control remotely.
We have pages on the website for whole school learning and supporting children with additional needs where alternative and additional tasks can be found.
Have a good week and please contact the school via email or phone if you have any questions or need further support,
Miss Garner :)
To support maths learning at home please visit Times Tables Rockstars - http://www.ttrockstars.com
Another great platform to support children's number knowledge is Numbots - https://play.numbots.com/?#/account/school-login/13709
I highly recommend these websites, many members of Year 3 have already started using it and have loved it!
- Login details are the same for both sites and are found on the inside cover of your home learning book. If you need yours ring school and we can provide them.
Another great site/app is Sum Dog which can be found here - the school code is stmatthews35599. Passwords and Usernames have been sent out if you did not receive one please contact the school.
Sum Dog is updated regularly by me with new tasks, for maths, spelling and reading.
All of the recommended online maths activities can be accessed on the computer or through a free app compatible with all devices! The icons are shown in the image below if you need support finding the right one.
