All children will be receiving a Microsoft Teams login. This is where homework information and other communication will be shared with each class.
Homework will be set every Monday on Microsoft Teams. It is expected that children completed the assigned tasks by the following Monday.
In addition to Microsoft Teams, children have access to Bug Club, Readiwriter, Mathletics and the PiXL Times Tables App.
Children will be tested on their Readiwriter word lists each week. The Mathletics activities they are set will be based on what they will be learning at school. Certificates are given out to children each week who complete Readiwriter and Mathletics activities and who come in the Top 10 students for the PiXL Times Tables.
In addition to their online homework, we encourage children to express their creativity and individuality through termly topic-based homework grids.
Please see the Curriculum Overview and Knowledge Organisers for Year 3 below.
Websites to support Home Learning
It is important that children are being safe online. It will be especially important for parents and carers to be aware of what their children are being asked to do online, including the sites they will be asked to access. Parents and carers should be aware of the importance of understanding what sites are safe and can be trusted. Grange Park Junior School will be providing weekly e-safety lessons for children to complete. The below poster from London Grid for Learning provides six top tips to keep children safe online during school closures. The following links will also support parents and carers in keeping their children safe online:
