Hello Year 3,
I hope you all had a lovely two week half term break!
Some of the children in our other year groups are returning to school soon. However, unfortunately, Year 3 are not able to return to school yet and there is no set date for this at the moment. In the meantime, I am continuing to set tasks for you to complete safely at home and I will update you when anything changes. Keep checking the school website for updates.
I am back in school from this week onwards to work with key worker children in Key Stage 1, so I will be a little busy during school hours. You can still email me though over on purple mash and I will do my best to reply whenever possible.
Take care everyone and keep staying safe. I miss you all.
Daily Maths and English
You can find the daily Maths and English lessons from BBC Bitesize by clicking on this link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zmyxxyc/year-3-and-p4-lessons/1
Each day, they put a new daily lesson on with some activity sheets for you to complete. Please work through the video or slideshow and complete the activities afterwards. If possible, you could print out the activity sheets and stick them in your home learning books. If this isn’t possible, copy out the question and answer it neatly in your books.
I’ve set some tasks on MyMaths this week all about shapes. In school, we would usually be starting our learning on shapes now and therefore the tasks I’ve set are recap tasks from the Year 2 learning.
Please complete the following MyMaths Year 3 time activities this week;
- Describing shapes
- 2D and 3D shapes
- 3D shapes
By the end of Year 3 you need to know off by heart your 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables so that you’re ready to learn the rest of your times tables by the end of Year 4. Times tables is all about practice, the more you practice the better you will become! You need to go on TTRockstars at least 3 times every week.
- Year 3 Terminology
- Prepositions and Adverbs
You all have a new spelling list this week. I can see from the Leader Board how well some of you are doing, keep it up!
Writing – Pobble 365
‘View from the cockpit’
This week, I’d like you to use the picture from 11th June called ‘View from the cockpit’. A cockpit is an area for the pilot and crew to control an aircraft. Complete these tasks in your red home learning books please. Remember, beautiful handwriting and presentation please!
- Story Starter – Can you describe the view from the cockpit? What can you see?
- Question Time – Answer these questions as creatively as you can!
- Perfect Picture! – Can you draw your own type of transport?
Reading – Purple Mash’s Serial Mash
After speaking to some of you via Purple Mash 2email, I know how much you’ve been enjoying the online books on Serial Mash. It’s a brilliant resource that we only have available during school closure, so make the most of it while you can!
This week I’d like you to;
- Continue the book from before half term called ‘Clean Sweep’. It has a really nice theme about looking after our planet. I’d like you just read chapters 4 and 5 this week.
- Answer the quiz questions for each of the chapters.
You can do the other tasks which go with each chapter if you’d like to!
Oxford Owl is currently offering free e-books (electronic books) for you to read! Follow the link above and you can select a book by age-group or book-band.

R.E / PSHE / Science
Please follow the link below for the Daily Prayer from the Church of England.
Monday 8th June is World Oceans Day. Please watch the video below about the Creation Story from The Bible to remind you how God created the Earth.
The theme of World Oceans Day 2020 is: Prevent plastic pollution and find ways to make our oceans healthy again.
Think about the Creation Story. How did God make the seas/oceans? How do you think God would feel about our seas and oceans being polluted by rubbish from humans? What would God think about the damage it is causing to sea animals and creatures?
I’d like you to create a poster about World Oceans Day and persuade people to clean up our oceans. You can use some of the answers to my questions above to make people look after the planet.
