Post-COVID Year 3 English Expectations (Recovery Curriculum)

(0)
COVID-19 has flummoxed us all, and it is vital that we ensure none of the children in our care get left behind in any facet of English language learning. This Recovery Curriculum document outlines key, end-of-year expectations for Year 3 in line with the National Curriculum strands for English. In this document, Year 2 expectations are included in the left-hand column and act as prerequisites to tick off before a child moves on to the Year 3 expectation. This acts as a net to catch any gaps that may have manifested due to the time off in lockdown during the academic year of 2019-2020. How do I use this product? I will be sticking these into the back of the children’s books and ticking them off when completed. They could also be assigned to a child digitally to save on paper and needless touching of joint resources. Alternatively, these could be used holistically for an entire class, or for emerging, expected & exceeding groups.

KS1/2: Explanation Texts (2 Weeks!)

Hi there! This is one of my biggest bundles for you guys. In here, there are 8 meticulously planned lessons, with extension work and opportunities to extend the learning over multiple literacy slots. There are 12 separate work sheets, including sorting activities, flash cards for drama, using the example of how chocolate is made. All learning objectives and success criteria are outlined for each individual lesson, and all links for extra resources to be found are on the series plan. Honestly, this has the potential to save you a LOT of work! It can be used for any year in primary, as there are alternative difficulty options, and vocabulary choices that can be altered to make it harder/easier. I hope you enjoy it :) Happy teaching, Miss Ritchie

Romans & Celts: Home-Learning Project

Hello Fellow Teachers, Here is a Romans and Celts-themed, home learning project that will be used whilst the children are off school and we’re in lockdown. It’s perfect for distance learning because it contains tasks that can be completed independently. This resource spreads across 5 tasks (could be set weekly or daily) which last for an hour-long each. The tasks are focused around The Romans, The Celts and Hadrian’s Wall. This task would work great for KS2 (Key Stage 2) and it fits in with the Year 3 national curriculum expectation for humanities. I upload my tasks as both an editable .docx / Word document, and as a PDF in case the alignment doesn’t work on your computers. Some of my resources use Primary Penmanship font, which can be downloaded for free from the following link: https://www.dafont.com/kg-primary-penmanship.font If you’re looking for other home-learning projects, here are links to the other resources I’ve put together for my KS2 children.
