"Learning to love, live and celebrate as we grow in the knowledge and love of Christ"

Monday 22nd June

Hello again, 

We are going to have a very busy special week this time. 

Starting today, on Monday, we are celebrating our school Patron Saint Thomas More Day and you can find out a bit more about him. 

Also, it is National School Sport Week at Home 2020 this week, so we would like you to do some more sports at home. 

Please still carry on following BBC Bitesize and if you like some extra challenge keep completing our additional tasks.

We keep getting more fabulous work, thank you very much for sending it over. 

English

Carry on using BBC Bitesize, this week you will look at reading comprehension a bit more, but also developing your writing skills.

For those who like a bit extra writing, start or carry on completing our 'Lockdown' Talk for Writing unit. 

Please find all resources attached below, there is a breakdown overview as well, some of the resources are also available as audio. 

Start practising your new set of spellings. 

Remember to read daily, you can use ebooks from a county library online or Oxford Owl https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page.

 

Maths

Bitesize tasks revisit angles, parallel and perpendicular lines this week. We have done some work on these units in Winter, but it's always good to reinforce our knowledgeand skills. 

Again, there are some additional explanation clips in White Rose unit.

Also, please find some extra worksheets attached below, if you like to do some additional practise. 

Some of you will need to carry on using Year 1 or 2 work, if Year 3 is too challenging at the moment. 

Use Mathletics or TT Rock Stars daily to gain more confidence across different areas of Maths, on Friday you can practise speed with which you recall your timetables, if your parents can print the worksheets off ( all attached under TT Rock Stars button in Year 3). Choose the timetables you need to work on, in Year 3 you should know 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 time tables.
