A special poem written by Ethan (from Year 3)
Lonely and can’t see my friends,
Overjoyed to spend time with family,
Cancelled after school club
Key workers are Heroes
Don’t forget to wash your hands
Oceans are clean and clear
Wash your hands with water for 20 seconds
Naughty people haven’t stayed 2m apart.
By Ethan (Year 3)

Supporting your child at home…
Home Learning Opportunities
Homework will be sent home on Friday and is expected back in school the following Wednesday. Children who do not complete their homework will be expected to during school hours.
We also look forward to seeing the children bring in their completed Home Learning projects. We will celebrate these in class and we will also share some of the work in a school assembly, typically the Monday before the end of the half-term.
- Every child has a login for our exciting new Times Tables Rockstars software. This allows your child to rehearse their times tables, play against other children and have fun with their Avatar. Please encourage your child to use the software and let us know if you have any problems accessing it.
- Times Tables will be constantly rehearsed in school. To help your child develop a rapid recall, additional practice at home is hugely valuable (even if this is on a walk or a car journey).
- Your child is using the following links to support their times tables recall so feel free to make use of them at home:
How can you help your child in English?
- Read regularly at home and discuss your child’s reading book with them:
Who are the main characters?
What happened in the story?
Is it fiction or non-fiction?
Why does [character] feel [emotion]?
If you were [character] what would you do?
Can you think of any other books that are similar?
What other books has this author written?
- Log onto Read Theory where your child can read texts and develop their comprehension skills.
This half-term our topic is We’ll Meet Again. A topic based on World War Two.
As part of your weekly Home Learning, you will be given activities linked to World War Two. However, you may also like to do some other creative learning. Some ideas are listed below:
- Create an Anderson Shelter or a Morrison Shelter
- Carry out your own research and create a fact file
- Grow your own fruits and vegetables just like they did during the war
- Create posters to encourage people to sign up for the war (propaganda posters)
- Find out about the Home Guards and what their role was during the war
- Sew some bunting of your own or even create some bunting using other materials
- Find out what foods were popular during the wartime and create a menu
