30 Days Wild

June is the perfect time for spotting animals, looking at plants and searching for insects. To give people some inspiration and tips for enjoying the natural world, the Wildlife Trusts are challenging us to connect with nature by carrying out a 'random act of wildness' each day for 30 days.

 

You can find more information on the Wildlife Trusts website using the link below.

Welcome to Class 3's page

With the closure of school, our class page will be used as a home-school learning platform. Each Monday, there will be a new selection of educational activities for your child to complete at home during that week. These will be a mixture of interactive, creative and workbook based activities, most of which should be able to be completed independently. Each activity will have a clear set of instructions to help you support your child. Where work needs to be recorded, this will be made clear in the instructions. I have provided each child with a lined and squared exercise book to support you with this. Writing and maths tasks that need to be sent to me for marking can be emailed to class3@coldaston.gloucs.sch.uk. Please include photos of your child's work or activities. If you are happy for me to share these on our class page, please state in your email, it would be a lovely way for the children to see what we are all up to! Some mark schemes/answer sheets will be uploaded to our class page for self/adult marking later in the week.

 

Work set will consist of the following:

A maths task based on the current unit of work or a previous unit to consolidate.

A maths fluency task for each day of the week based around the four number operations.

2 x reading comprehension activities.

A piece of writing to complete

Set of spellings (to be self-tested or by an adult)

An ongoing project with a set of questions linked to the current topic.

 

I am unable to send reading books home but ask that you continue to read with your child/ren as often as possible while encouraging them to read independently, daily. Epic reading is available online via the class code. There are also various websites and apps that provide plenty of reading materials. Some of these are highlighted in the useful resources section.
