To our amazing Year 3 children
Spread the message of joy and hope by creating a rainbow picture and displaying it in your window for others to see. Many children across the country are doing this! See the pictures below for some ideas for how you could create your rainbow. Whilst on your one-a-day walk, see how many rainbow pictures you can find.

We have suggested Topic Projects for your children to get their teeth into. Your child can choose which they are most interested in. We have included links to useful research websites to get them started on their research.
We would love to receive photos or videos of your children's home learning via email so we can add them to our Home Learning Hall of Fame.
Stay Home and Stay Safe. We are thinking of you all at this strange and unprecedented time.

Suggestions for Engaging Home Learning Activities
This term, we have been learning about volcanoes. Amaze your family by telling them what you have already learnt. What more could you find out? Use books, internet search engines, watch videos, interview people. How could you present your findings? Here are some suggestions; diagram, poster, information booklet, labelled 3D model, video, PowerPoint presentation … You decide!
We have been learning about how magnets work. What would you like to find out next? Present what you find out in a way of your choice; sorting diagram, information booklet, poster, PowerPoint presentation, science test video. You decide!
How many things in your home have magnets?
Can you design a magnetic game?
A variety of tasks have been allocated to your child in the '2Do' section of their account. Login details were sent home with your child on a piece of card along with their Timestables Rockstars Login details. We have now set up the email facility on Purple Mash so your child can stay in touch with their classmates and teachers. All emails are read and approved by teachers before they can be seen by the children.
