Coronavirus (COVID 19): list of online education resources for home education
The Department for Education have brought together an initial list of online educational resources to help children to learn at home. The majority of these are free and are available to you by clicking on the picture link above.
These websites have been identified by some of the country’s leading educational experts and offer a wide range of support and resources for pupils of all ages. This should support parents with additional resources for their children to access at home.
Good luck exploring and enjoy!

Times Table Rockstars- Eagles Leaderboard
Each week, I will update this table with different data from my 'Times Tables Rockstar' dashboard...
This week's 'Top Rockstars' are (based on lifetime coins):
Let's see who can make massive TTRS progress next week!
Have a look at these websites for fun and engaging ways to practise your times tables:
Have you downloaded the Squeebles app? It's £3.99 and a great way for children to practise their tables on the phone or tablet.
We hope you had a lovely end of term break! The children have come back and settled well to working with both of us again. This term, we will be learning about The Roman Empire with a History/ Geography theme to our topic.
In Science we will be learning about 'Rocks' which links in well with our current topic. The children have been keen to explore the different types of rock and where they come from.
In R.E., our focus will be on 'Celebrating the Mass'. We went to Mass last week for Ash Wednesday and children enjoyed an R.E. day focusing on this topic. In this unit of work, the areas we will be looking at are:
• Know what happened at the Last Supper.
• Understand what happens at the beginning of Mass.
• Understand the importance of the Readings at Mass.
• Know what happens at the Offertory and Consecration.
• Know that it is Jesus we receive in Holy Communion.
• Be familiar with your Parish Church.
For further information on our yearly programme of RE in Year 3, please see 'The Way, The Truth and The Life' overview document.
The P.E. lessons will continue to work as part of a carousel - a programme of either Tag Rugby, Hockey or Dodgeball/ Volleyball. Please ensure that earrings are removed and that the correct kit is in school every day. As it is now cold, please provide your child with jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt for outside P.E. We need to ensure the children are dressed appropriately in all weathers.
We shall endeavour to add photos of your children's learning as the term progresses. Homework will usually be handed out on a Thursday to be returned by the following Tuesday. Children will have:
- Daily reading with an adult
- Spellings to learn for a weekly test and to show their understanding, they are required to include one of the words in a sentence (choose five words).
- Maths homework relating to their learning in class. In addition, there will be the expectation that children are practising their multiplication tables for instant recall to support them in all aspects of the Maths curriculum.
- On occasions, to support their learning in class, children might receive a small amount of additional homework based on the topic we are learning.
In addition, we kindly request that any equipment children bring in from home can fit into their small table tray.
