Year 3 Home Learning
Herne Junior School has allocated two teachers to help support all the children who are having to learn at home.
Mrs Lee (S.Lee@hernejunior.com) and Mrs Marlow (L.Marlow@hernejunior.com) are both available to help and support all the families and pupils who need them through this difficult time. They are available to discuss any aspects of work that the children may be struggling with , listen to children read, deliver CGP workbooks (if digital devices are not accessible) and help motivate our young home-learners.
Below are a list of recommended resources we suggest parents use to support their children at home.

We have attempted to link the below resources to the general subject areas we are covering this half-term in class. The exception to this is English, which is very hard to replicate the detail we go into in the classroom, however we have found some units with similar skills taught.

English - Writing
- Each writing unit contains a sequence of 5 lessons to be completed in order
- Each session should take no more than 30 mins to complete
- Tasks are written with easy to follow instructions for parents / child
- Each lesson has a simple explanation and examples to get started
- All units are based on texts that can be found online, or extracts shared within the unit
Parents, carers and siblings can help by reading the extracts/text aloud to the child; collecting interesting words and phrases on paper / post-it notes as they read; talking to the child about their ideas before they write. All these instructions are within the unit aimed at parents. (HIAS English Team).
English - Reading
How much and how often children read really matters. During a time of school closure, ‘just reading’ is one of the best ways to keep children learning and growing.
Once children have mastered decoding through their phonics work, reading as much and as widely as possible will ensure that they continue to develop, not just academically, but emotionally too. And the best way to improve reading is the most enjoyable – reading! As the reading scientist Mark Seidenberg puts it, “The serious way to improve reading – how well we comprehend a text and, yes, speed and efficiency – is this: Read. As much as possible. Mostly new stuff.”
Encourage children to read stories, non-fiction and poetry . Encourage parents to listen to their child reading aloud, even if they are in Key Stage 2. Enjoy talking about the books they read and discuss unfamiliar words. Reading aloud will help children to build their fluency, so that when they read silently the ‘voice in their head’ is fluent too. (HIAS English Team)

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.
