Year 3/4

Update – For Monday 20th July

Dear parents,

   As we enter the last two days of term we are all reflecting on the year. The thing which comes to mind most of all, is how sad it has been that we could not all learn together for the full year. From September to March, we enjoyed some wonderful learning experiences together such as: the residential, WOW days, world book day events and the delights of an Ofsted inspection! 

    Although cut short, we will remember the time spent with the learners fondly and we are enthusiastically looking forward to seeing them again in September for new learning adventures.

   The home learning lessons and resources will remain here for the summer for those families who wish to catch up or revise. 

   Thank you to all of the parents for your hard work and dedication during these exceptional times. Having emails and photos of your work sent to us has been marvellous and we have really enjoyed sharing examples of great home learning to others. 

    We very much look forward to seeing the children in September. We hope you have a good week and a great summer,

Mr Jackson and the LKS2 team.

Scratch IT Coding Skills

 

As part of the computing curriculum, your child should already be familiar with the Scratch coding software. What is great about Scratch as a learning resource is that it can be operated on your web browser without a login or subscription.

Your child will have had a number of formal lessons using this software to program and code animations and simple games.

By using the tutorials in the link your child can take their learning further. The tutorial plays as a window inside the coding area and has a short video, and arrows at the side which break down the instructions into simple stages.

This resource is great for learner exploration and free thinking skills. We hope your child enjoys it.
