Friday Assembly- Faith At Home for Primary Schools Collective Worship: Series 2 Episode 6 - Hope


Happy Friday Year 3! Just 5 days left of learning at home!  Bring a piece of learning from the week to share in our Zoom chat this morning. You have worked so hard again this week- I'm very proud of you. smiley


Well done to the following children for logging in to practise their skills:

13 on TTRS in the last 7 days

11 children on Abacus

17 on Nessy (Top Nugget earner has 225 nuggets!)

4 children on ReadTheory.


I have uploaded the new work grid and resources. Please let me know if you think there is anything missing.


Videos are in the Video Centre of the website. (Go to 'Children' tab > 'Home Learning' > > Video Centre). Remember to go on Abacus, Nessy Learning, Read Theory and Times Table Rock Stars (send me some Rock Slams!).


Remember you can swap reading books between 1:30 and 3:00 Monday-Thursday in the dining hall. There are also exercise books for you to use, if you need them.


Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Best wishes,

Miss Todd

Year 3 Home Learning letter Spring 2021

Welcome to Year 3!

Our teacher in Year 3 is Miss Todd and our Teaching Assistants are Miss Fox and Mrs Elliott.


This term we are learning about the Romans in History and looking at Roman remains in the local area as well as comparing this to another locality. We will be learning about Sikhism in RE. In Computing we will be learning about Democracy and filming 'mock' school council speeches. We will also be learning more about algorithms in our 'My first program' topic. Our PE activities this term are Fitness and Football.  In Art, we will be learning about and creating our own mosaics. Later in the term we will be using pneumatics to create a moving monster in DT. We will continue with French: learning colours and numbers to make sentences.


Extra information: We will continue to do PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It will be outdoors so make sure you have warm clothes and a waterproof coat! 


 Every Monday Reading Records must be handed in so they can be checked. If you finish your reading book, let an adult know at school so we can find a convenient time for you to choose a new one. Spellings are tested on a Monday and new words will be handed out on the same day if possible.

 Have you seen the Kids' Zone? Play games and visit some cool websites.

Scatter tables


To begin the term we will be reading 'The Legends of King Arthur' and will learn about the features of legends in order to write our own. Later in the term we will be reading an abridged version of 'The Secret Garden' to focus on descriptive writing. 


Reading regularly also helps you to improve your writing. Visit your local library to find inspiration or explore: to find information about books you might like.



This term in Science we will be investigating light and then learning more about the properties of plants and what they need to survive.


In Maths we are doing lots of work on written arithmetic- adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Check the Maths page on the website to see our school's calculation policy.


It's also really important to keep practising times tables. Remember children in Year 3 must know their 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x and 10x tables. We are learning the 3x, 4x and 8x tables. Continue to log in to Times Table Rock Stars for practice. Also, try drawing pictures to represent times tables facts or sing songs! If you know these tables already make sure you know division facts for them as well.


We will also be working on fractions- there are some new games below to practise ordering fractions, comparing equivalent fractions and finding fractions of amounts. (Your times tables knowledge can be a great help when working with fractions!)


You can always be practising at home to tell the time to the nearest minute. You also need to be able to understand time using the 24 hour clock and recognise Roman Numerals from 1- 12.


You can find lots of games to practise your Maths knowledge and understanding on:
