Year 3

Hello Year 3,

We have set another weeks work, beginning on the 13th July.
This is your last week of home schooling. We are extremely sad that we did not get to finish the year with you but we look forward to seeing your lovely faces back in school in September.
So that your new teacher can get to know you, fill out the ‘For My New Teacher’ booklet. Remember to impress your new teacher with your handwriting, use of the year 3 success criteria and fabulous vocabulary.
You need to click on the links below and watch any videos/ tutorials and complete the activities – some of these may be quizzes. Any task that cannot be completed online, need to be written into your exercise books or on paper.

Activity 1
Using inverted commas to show speech – complete activity 1, 2, 3 and 4
Activity 2
Mastering inverted commas – complete activity 1, 2 and 3
Activity 3
Read through the sentences – can you spot where the missing punctuation is? Re-write the sentences with the correct punctuation. Look out for missing capital letters, full stops, commas, question marks, exclamation marks, inverted commas and apostrophes for contraction.

Stuck for ideas on supporting your children with spellings? Have a look at the ideas and apps that are recommended by Hertfordshire specialist teachers in the PDF titled “Supporting your child with spellings”. Children of NHS workers can also access free accounts on the TTRS (Touch Type Read and Spell) program during school closure. This is a dyslexia friendly touch typing program that simultaneously overlearns spellings (only uses real words) and gradually introduces typing short sentences. You would need to contact them directly to organise this. (BBC do their own touch typing programme which is free but this is not linked with spellings.)
