Saturday 28th March - EXTRA LINKS - NO PRESSURE!


Below are some links with further learning and fun activities. Remember, we have given you lots and the whole range can be spread out over a long period of time so please don’t panic and please don’t rush through them! We know you are doing a fab job supporting your children!


Youth Sport Trust has a number of resources for parents and schools


White Rose Maths home learning   ‘The White Rose Maths team has prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group from Y1-Y8.  We will be adding five more each week for the next few weeks.  Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.’


UCL Institute of Educationfree online learning resources   ‘We have compiled a list of resources helpful to teachers, school leaders, parents/carers and young people.  All of these resources are either free/have been made free during the period of school closures.’

Friday 27th March - HOME LEARNING UPDATE


Hello and well done for completing your first week of home learning. We hope it has gone well for you at home and that you are enjoying the extra time with your family.


We have missed you all lots and are hoping for a speedy return to school! Sadly, we don’t know when this will be... fingers crossed it is sooner rather than later!


We hope you have enjoyed working through the home learning packs sent to you and any other learning that can be completed online. Have you enjoyed the different tasks? Remember routine and structure is great but don’t feel like you have to complete a solid day of learning. After all, it is a home, not a school. Do what is best for your child and your family. We are grateful for any amount of learning completed - whatever the context! We are equally happy to hear you if have made the most of the beautiful sunshine that we have experience lately too!


A few reminders/ bits of information for you...


1. You had rather a lot sent home including the following:


Times Table Rock Stars - a challenge is currently set up!

mymaths - we have commented on your feedback and set new challenges!

Mini maths - added on this page this week.

Doodlemaths and English - shout if you need a log in.

Learning packs - that chunky pack of paper...

Lots on Facebook page - we have been adding lots of links of ideas and tasks including some lovely art ideas.

Reading - read whatever gives you pleasure and then talk about what you have read with someone else. Ask and answer questions about that text.

Spelling practice - you had your spellings for the term but also practise the Year 3 statutory spellings. If you are someone who struggles with spelling, there is nothing wrong with working on Year 1 or Year 2 common words which can be googled online.

Fun science experiments - look up ideas online and have a go at home! Record it on an iPad to share!



2. Ways to stay in touch


a. Telephone calls - we have managed to speak to almost all of you and left messages for those who haven’t been able to answer. It has been LOVELY to speak to you and catch up and we will try to ring every 1-2 weeks to say ‘hello’!

b. Facebook - comment or message and we will reply!

c. Email - we will try to reply in one way or another!

d. MyMaths - we will comment on your progress to encourage you to continue to work hard!


3. English ideas if needed...


- Change an element of a story that you know e.g. the ending, the main character, the setting and so on... 

- Write a set of instructions based on something you have made at home or based on your baking for example.

- Setting or character descriptions - create new settings or characters and describe them using noun phrases, similes, alliteration and interesting word choices. Include a range of conjunctions and punctuation to make it really interesting!

- Write a Letter - write a letter to a family member or a friend.

- Factfile - about an animal, a planet, your favourite sport...

- Diary - keep a diary of each day... it could prove to be an interesting read in the future!


These are all ideas to keep you going for weeks and weeks - especially if you change the theme/ main idea so have fun!


Anyway, we know you are all doing a fab job (we really do mean this!) and you will no doubt want to steal our jobs from us when we return. We’re very proud of your children and cannot wait to be back in class to teach them and welcome you back too!


Keep safe!

Hey Crocodile class!


Hope you are keeping well, I am missing you all lots and lots!


In addition to your chunky home packs and 2 sheets of ideas (just to keep you busy!), below is an additional maths website to access with activities specifically for your year group. There are many question that you can just copy onto paper rather than printing out!


There is also a PHSE link a couple of audio stories which allow for discussions and activities to take place. It has been advised that these are suitable for 5yo+.



Thanks and stay safe!

Weekly Updates- Term 3!


The children have been set new MyMaths homework to complete. Last term, we found very few children were completing this. It does reinforce what we have been learning in class so it’s very helpful for the children to practise! We do reward children in class who have completed this work so please do support your child and encourage this learning- it only takes 10 minutes once a fortnight. Login details were given out again at the start of Term 3. If you have any issues logging in, please see Mrs Milbourne.

From next week, we will be swapping the days that we do PE. Gym will be on a Monday and Forest School on a Thursday.

English: We have written a setting description for our story “Oliver and the Seawigs”. The children have really enjoyed designing their own seawigs and creating exciting vocabulary to describe them!  

Maths: We have been learning about Time this week and have had a fun lesson making potions to learn about capacity. The children have been telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes so it would be great if they could practise this at home!

Science: We learned about forces and motion. We looked at pushes and pulls and found out whether certain movements were starting or stopping motion.





Crocodile Class have had a fantastic first week in Term 2! They have use a range of language

devices such as similes and noun phrases.


Also, we have started to create volcanos which we will test this term!


Please make sure you sign up for parents' evening- my form is in my classroom!


I will look forward to seeing you all!


Mrs Milbourne :)
