Your Topic!

Free Will and the Power of Choice - Everyday Resilience for ...

This week we thought we would mix things up a bit! It can be really hard to keep motivated when you have been away from school for so long and every day brings us closer to the summer holidays. We wanted to think of a way to help you keep going, just a little longer and we thought, wouldn’t it be amazing if you could choose your own topic to focus on this week! So, for this week’s activities we have provided suggestions on how you can present your work and things to focus on within your chosen topic, but it really is a topic of your own choosing!

It could be ANYTHING! Absolutely anything you are really interested in. It could be….

Trains               Football or any other sport               Formula One                     Something from history or the future

A game (yes, even Minecraft!)           Pirates                A hobby          A creature (Real or Imaginary)

A famous person               Technology            Planes          A film          A book

We could go on; the options are endless! Just remember to choose something that will really motivate and inspire you!,

What you enjoyed & why?

The work you most enjoyed, are proud of & why?

Whilst we further investigate platforms for sharing pupils' work, we'd like to open up out teacher emails.  This is an optional way that parents can send over examples of the work that their child has completed over the week.  Please use the emails no more than once a week, but we would love to see what our classes have been working on and we hope this will motivate learners also.  The children are welcome to put in their own message, however we ask that the email comes from the parent for safeguarding reasons.  Any shared work may be added to our Home Learning Gallery (click here for examples that have been uploaded already)

Teachers in Year 3 who are already using Class Dojo are happy for you to continue using this as a form of communication. Please remember teacher's do not have to use Dojo, so if your class does not use it already, please do not ask for it to be set up. Thank you.




Please note the change of email address for Oak class. All communication should now be address to Miss Stanley via email, not Class Dojo. Thank you.
