IF YOU WERE AN ENGINEER WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
Calling all home educators,
There is nothing like a little boredom to fuel creative invention!
With that in mind, we would like to present our ‘If you were an engineer, what would you do’ Home Learning Project. Completely free for all children and young people aged 3-19.
We are providing more online interviews with engineers, who will share their work experiences and answer your questions; along with some activities to help get you ‘thinking like an engineer’.
So, how do you get involved?
Firstly, you will need to register, this can be done by clicking the link below.
Once registered, you will be given access to our online resources, guides and information on the upcoming engineer interviews via our resources area.
Please feel free to share this email with other families! We want everyone to have the opportunity to delve into the fun world of engineering and put their creativity to the test.
This project has been created both for parents/carers/guardians to deliver at home to children and young people in their household; and also, for teachers to deliver to key worker pupils in class or pupils at home. Teachers who are already registered for the Leaders Award competition, please share this with parents/carers/guardians to aid them with home learning.
The deadline for this project is 10th September 2020.

Year 3 Home Learning Week Commencing 20th April 2020
Dear Pupils and Parents,
Please see below for a list of home learning suggestions. There are also activities similar to the ones we originally sent home too – these can be found separately in PDF format below. Mathletics tasks have been set for the next few weeks. Also, BBC Bitesize has launched daily online lessons and tasks which match the National Curriculum learning objectives for each year group. Y2 lessons could be looked at and the tasks completed as reminders. Obviously, Y3 will be ideal, but please dip into the resources, video clips and activities that you feel are appropriate for you and your child. Please use the class emails to keep in touch or for more information.

On Wednesday 25th September, Year 3 children enjoyed stepping back in time at Creswell Crags to learn lots about what life was like in the Stone Ages. We learnt that Doncaster was mostly covered in ice, but at Creswell near Worksop, Stone Age hunter-gatherers came to find shelter in the caves while they foraged and hunted for food. We loved getting kitted out in hard hats for the cave visit! We also tested our survival skills with spear-throwing and fire-making activities. The day was fun and exciting with the staff at Creswell Crags really bringing the past to life for us!
