Hi Year 3,

It was lovely to speak to so many of you and your adults this week on the phone, and to hear about all the fun things you’ve been doing at home!

Here is more work that should last you the week starting on Monday 18th May.

Please log into Timestable rockstars if you have not done so already. There are some tournaments set up and your friends need your help to win. We are checking in regularly and can see who is playing!
You need to click on the links below to watch the videos and complete the activities/tasks set. Any tasks that cannot be completed online, need to be written into your exercise books.

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 https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zf2f9j6/articles/z3c6tfr but this is not linked with spellings.)
