Home learning

Firstly, we as a year group, would like to express that we understand that these are difficult and yet again unprecedented times. We understand that you may be worried but we would like to let you know that we are still here for you and your child/children.

Furthermore, we are contactable through the school phone number above or on our year group email at year3@kensingtonprimary.co.uk throughout the school day. We have also set up Google Classroom. This is where we will provide the main home learning material and your child can also interact with us through this. If you wish to share their work you can also tag us on Twitter, using the handle @kensingprimary. We know we need to keep physical distance at this time but it is important that we continue to keep in contact on a daily basis as your child’s learning and well-being is a priority for us all.

Please find below important information with regards to your child/s home learning.

How to access home learning:

You can find home learning content in the following places (school website, google classroom, weekly home packs) but Google Classroom is the most interactive.
Google Classroom

Step 1- search for google classroom or click on the following link http://classroom.google.com

Step 2 – use your child’s school email address and password to login to their account (these will be emailed to your personal email account soon- if you don’t receive it contact school!)

Step 3- Click on your class

Step 4 – access the work through the classwork tab at the top of the page.

Step 5 – complete work on google docs and submit using the hand in button
(You can also share your work with your class mates and your teacher can provide you with instant feedback.)

School website

Follow the link below to access your work on the school website. This can then be emailed over to us by taking a picture or sending the file to year3@kensingtonprimary.co.uk

Weekly work packs

These will only be available for those children who DO NOT have access to the internet at home. Remote (Google classroom) learning is the best way to access work.

Work will be available to collect from the school office at a set time every Monday if you do not have access to the internet at home. School will be in touch to arrange this.

Thank you in advance for your help and support.

We hope to see you soon.
Best wishes,

Mr R. Hilton, Miss R. Moran and Miss L. Telfer.

Home Learning Friday 8th January

Complete the arithmetic test. Try to give yourself 20 minutes to complete it. The answers are on the sheet so you can mark it once you have completed it. Send it back to us via email with your score written at the top.

Your spellings for this week cover adding suffixes to words. Complete the tasks and then send them back to us.


¿Cuántos años tienes?

Watch the video to remind yourself of numbers 1 – 10 in Spanish. Then complete the sheet practising saying how old you are. Use the number spelling sheet to help you.

Use your Charanga Yumu log in details to complete one lesson from the unit we have set online. Your log in details have been sent out to you alongside your other log in details.

Home Learning 7th Jan 2021

This lesson builds on the work from yesterday. Use the stategies we learnt in class to help you solve these addition calculations.

Practise your handwriting either by printing the sheet out or copying it onto a piece of paper. These words also link to our Year 3 spellings, so take care with what you are writing as well as how you are writing it.

We will be posting text extracts and stories regularly for you to read in addition to your home reading books. Let us know what you think of this one. Does it make you want to read the rest of the book?

This philosophy lesson gets us thinking about who keeps us safe and who we are thankful for. You can discuss it with other people in your house, or do your own research into rainbows.
