Message from the team: How our curriculum will work this summer term 

Dear Year Three,

We hope you and your families are keeping safe at home whilst our school is temporarily closed.

During this period of uncertainty, we want to try and provide some normality for you. This term we will continue with teaching most of our curriculum as we can. Please find below the curriculum map and how our virtual curriculum will work. 

Your topic this term is ‘Rediscover the Roman Empire’. Within this topic, pupils will learn about the role the Romans played in British history. They will explore the impact the Roman invasion had on British Society.

Please find the curriculum map: 

Our gallery is coming soon!

If you would like your work to be published in this gallery or on Twitter, email year3@prestpk.brent.sch.uk and please confirm that you give consent for the work to be shared socially.

There are links to a great range of fun and interactive games and online lessons for you to participate in under the Learning at Home tab. Below, on this page, you will find a comprehensive list of different online lessons you can participate in throughout the week.

We will be viewing your work on Purple Mash and providing feedback- we cannot wait to see what you have been up to!

Stay safe.

Best wishes,

Miss John-Baptiste      Miss Taylor          Miss Rushe         Mr Heycock

Home School Communication

Whilst our school is temporarily closed, we still want to keep our lines of communication between home and school open.

Mrs Nutton regularly sends update letters via ParentPay. It is important that all families have an account to avoid missing any key information. If you do not already have an account, please email our Admin Team at admin@prestpk.brent.sch.uk who can help you set one up.

We miss all our pupils so much that we will be making contact via telephone calls once a week, to see how you and your family are, and to support with any questions you may have about your learning.

In the meantime, we would love to see pictures or videos of any home learning tasks you have completed that you are particularly proud of. Please email year3@prestpk.brent.sch.uk so we can celebrate your learning.

We are also launching our whole school blog very soon. We are so excited! Keep your eyes peeled on how to engage with us via it.

Easter Home Learning

Please find attached Year 3’s Easter Home Learning Matrix. If your child has an EHC Plan, you will be emailed a personalised matrix for pupils to complete in addition to or in place of the year group’s set home learning.

Complete each task in your orange ‘Home Learning’ exercise book. We would really like to see your final products of your home learning. If you want to share an image or recording of one of your projects, email them to year3@prestpk.brent.sch.uk for the attention of your class teacher.

Do not forget to take part in the school’s Reading Challenge. It is really easy! Choose a book from the 100 options and then rate and review it. You may have read some of these books already so you can simply write a review on it. With public libraries and local shops being temporarily closed, we wouldn’t expect you to review books you cannot find. However, Amazon Audibles has made hundreds of its audiobooks free to the public during this period, go have a look if a book you are interested in is available there.  

Carol Vordeman has created a free online maths website The Maths Factor with games and quizzes https://www.themathsfactor.com/ Once you have signed up it will take a couple of days for you to receive your username and password.

To exercise your mathematical mind, practice your multiplication and division facts daily through Times Table Rock Stars. We will be observing how you are doing and also playing along. Shout outs will be made on our blog and Twitter at the end of every week for those who are achieving Rock Hero status or making leaps of progress. Keep calm and rock on!

 

Below are our avatars, if you want to keep an eye on our status in the leader board or compete against us in a rock battle.
