If you would like to say hello, then don't forget you can comment on the videos on the home learning youtube page or you can send me emails and pictures of what you are doing at home via the home learning email.

Week 2 Home Learning Tasks
Week 1 - Home learning
The children will by now have come home with home learning booklets which have some activities and sheets in for them to have a go at. I have also put together a list of activities, websites and resources that may prove helpful, informative and fun for you and your child while they are learning from home.
- Topmarks - A variety of online interactive games.
- Times Tables - This website is the website we use at school to practise our times tables. You can select the times table you are learning, do both multiplication and division as well as selecting the time and amount of question you have.
- Mathletics - Each child now how their own personal log in. I have set a number of tasks that should keep the children busy.
- Purple mash - Each child also has their own log in for this. Again, I have selected some activities for your children that they should be able to do independently, they may need help with logging in.
- Geography - This website is just a nice website for your children to explore with you. I wonder if you as adults can find out more interesting facts about places of the world.
- Mental Health - Mental Health is an important thing for everyone to be aware of. These challenging times which we find ourselves in, may cause more mental health concerns, both for adults and children. Make sure you talk about them. This website is a nice website to have a read though and gives you activities for your child to do or to do as a family. If you need help with managing your children at home, please let me know. #ItsOkayToNotBeOkay
I will be posting information and tasks to this page so please keep checking back here regularly.
I hope you all stay healthy and happy. Remember that although some of us may be ill, isolated or feeling sad. We are still a big Clatford family! We'll all be back to school together before you know it!

Welcome to Year 3!
Year 3 is an exciting year in school as the children leave behind Key Stage one and begin their journey through Key Stage Two with Mr Pearmain and Mrs Freeman. The children become increasingly independent and responsible this year and begin to take some ownership of their learning and their environment.
In literacy, we work to consolidate the progress that we have made in Year 2. We work hard to ensure that we have secured their phonological knowledge and move towards ensuring that we are applying it to our spelling. In numeracy, we look to extend our range of strategies to solve calculations using the four operations. We begin to learn and use our times tables more now, and develop these skills into our growing collection of key number facts.
We cover three main topics across the year. We firstly look at 'Stone Age to Iron Age', and what life was like during that time period. As part of the topic, we visit Butser Ancient Farm, during which we get the opportunity to explore both time periods through handling artefacts, playing games, and literally travelling from the Stone Age to the Iron Age in one day.
Our Spring Term topic explores a huge amount of geographical learning, thinking and skills. During our first half term topic 'Where In The World', the children develop their knowledge and understanding of our planet, such as understanding of countries, continents and geographical features such as the equator. We progress to apply this learning in Spring 2, when we direct our world learning to build understanding about 'Why are deserts so dry and jungles so wet'?
Our Final topic of the year is 'Romans'. Once again we travel back through time and learn what life was like for Romans. This year we are planning on visiting Ufton Court and have a Virtual Reality Experience of Rome.
As part of our P.E. programme, we take the children on a six week swimming course at Farleigh School. The children love swimming with their peers and it is always something they are excited about, and are always disappointed when the course is finished.
