Spelling ✏️ 

Everyone has been issued with their own Spelling Activity jotter to keep at home.

Inside, there is a paper copy of your weekly spelling words for the next few weeks and a copy of our Spelling Spider.

Please write the words into your jotter and choose an activity from the Spelling Spider to complete each week. Please try, where possible, to select a different one each time. The activities are designed to practise the words in fun, engaging ways.

We would love to see photographs of the activities you are doing – please send snaps to the P3 email address!

The new spelling rules will be taught in class on a Monday, before being practised throughout the week, ready for a ‘quiz’ on a Friday!

Should you require an additional copy of the spelling words, or help with any of the activities, please do not hesitate to ask!

Happy Spelling!  ✏️

Welcome to our P3 Home Learning page

Each week a new grid of suggested activities will be posted onto our P3 page.  The activities and ideas have been created and chosen so that they can be used at home without needing too many resources or preparation.  Please don’t worry if you don’t manage to do all the activities during the week or find some tricky – try your best 🙂
It would great to see what you are doing so please do email me some photographs or video clips and share your news. Please also email if you have any questions about the activities or tasks.

Home Learning Pack
Your child has also been provided with a Home Learning Pack. The pack includes resources to use in conjunction with the Home Learning Grid. Inside, you will find a list of the resources and potential ideas for how they can be used.

Thank you
Mrs Philpott and Mrs Potts
