Home learning

A little message from the year 3 team...

We just wanted to say that we hope everyone is staying safe and beginning to settle into the new normality. Although we encourage English and Maths tasks daily we also want to emphasise the importance of using this time to develop life and social skills such as baking, gardening and helping with chores around the house. Lastly, we hope to see you back in school soon and look forward to hearing about what you have learnt. 



Easter Break

As stated in a recent letter that you should have received, we will not be setting any additional home learning throughout the Easter Break. This should be important family time and a break for all.

Some of the school learning links will remain for optional use (such as TT Rockstars, Reading Eggs, Arithmetic practise papers etc) and we encourage children to catch up on some practise using these.

We wish everyone a safe and happy Easter.

Fun activities for the Easter break!

Fun activities for the Easter break! 1

There are a lot of great ways children can learn at home by following these links


Please find below, daily worksheets uploaded to be completed by the children. The first document on the PDF is the mild followed by the hot then chilli. The children are aware of these challenges and should therefore self select their level of challenge.  These worksheets can be completed alongside TTRockstars. There will also be an arithmetic test uploaded once a week for the children to complete.  

Please find below two documents to help support you when teaching your children about fractions. If any more support is required then please contact your class teacher via the class email. 


Each week there will be a writing project for the children to complete. The stimulus of this activity will be a video/picture as inspiration for their writing (please see word document). The writing projects will be of different genres each week. Children can continue practicing their spelling words on spelling shed as usual and their handwriting using letterjoin. There are also grammar and punctuation activities attached for extra learning (children could complete 1 per week). Children should continue reading 5 x week - reading comprehensions will be uploaded to the website.
