We are very grateful to all the parents who are keeping home learning going during this time.
The Robin Hood Trust has written a range of home learning projects. Each weekly topic covers a broad range of fun, educational activities which are low stress but worthwhile. We would love to know how you get on with them. There is also a link below to the website where you will find previous week's projects and projects to suit other age groups.
WW2 history lessons
Liverpool war museum are offering free WW2 history lessons on Facebook and YouTube. The lessons are aimed at primary school children, but are suitable for any age group with an interest in this! These lessons link well to the ‘Keep the Home Fires Burning’ project that the children have been learning across the school.
The next live lesson is on Wednesday 1st April at 1pm. You can access this lesson by typing ‘Western Approaches’ into the Facebook search bar.

Visit from Jon Agee
In October, Years 2 and 3 visited the Children's Bookshow at The New Wolsey Theatre, where they listened to the author Jon Agee talk about how he writes and illustrates his books.
The day after, he visited 3R at school and ran a workshop with them about creating pictures to tell a story.
The children had lots of fun working with Jon, creating interactive pictures to tell their own stories.
Year 3 Computational Thinking Day at BT
We worked on eight different challenges throughout the day. Each challenge was designed to develop our computing, scientific, mathematical and technological skills. Throughout the day collaboration was an important skill to use as we worked with others to design and test algorithms using a variety of different equipment.
Year 3 Greek Day
On Thursday 16th January 2020 Ninny the Greek visited Year 3 to help us with our learning about the Ancient Greeks. We came to school dressed in our Greek costumes and had a super time learning about the Greek city states and their rulers, the Greek mathematician and inventor Archimedes, armour and weapons and the first Olympic games. We played strategy games, tried to solve a mathematical puzzle and held our own mini Olympics (Greek Style!)
