How can you help at home?

Read with your child as much as you can at home - question your child on the book they have read by using the 5w's (who, what, where, when, why).

Support your child with their weekly homework that is set every Friday and encourage your child to research the topic they are learning in school.

ELEs offered to your children:

ELEs are activities that are designed to enhance the learning in Year 3. They are unique opportunities that we offer to the children that will help them deepen their understanding and have fun whilst learning in a creative way.

Upcoming ELEs include:

  • Pop UK will visit to sing with the children, teach them new songs focussed on our values and perform for an evening concert;
  • Wednesday 9th October - One Goal resilience workshop. Tom and Ben from One Goal will explore how to build resilience through attitudes, behaviour, courage, determination, enthusiasm for learning and friendship.
  • Tuesday 12th November - Year 3 Egyptian Day. Claire Ollet, an Egyptologist from Blackburn will visit the children and explore mummies, Pharaohs and real-life Egyptian artefact.
