Next Friday you will need some pebbles or rocks- please take care and wash your hands when collecting these. Thank you! 


Children I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your families for my lovely birthday gift. You have really made my day! I remember my Mum being 50 and I thought it was really old at the time but my very kind friend told me yesterday that 50 is the new 40! I'm having a lovely day so far and it's so nice to know that you have been thinking of me at home. smiley


A BIG SHOUT OUT goes to the super star in 3HN who I share my birthday with. Have a fabulous day!


Lots of love children and stay safe

Mrs Holmes heart 

This Week

Children, Parents and Carers, the teachers have different roles at present at school and at home. This week Mrs Holmes and Mrs Norbury are working in school so 3HN you will not have your live daily check in via Google Classroom but we shall keep in touch as much as possible via email. Mrs Milne, Miss Haley (who is new to school) and Miss Cropper are providing your learning from home and will check in with 3MC. 


Remember to stick any work that you do in your Home Learning Books that we gave out before Christmas if you are in 3HN. If you are in 3MC you can keep your work in a folder or book of your choice. You can then bring this into school. You can send us any learning via email if you would like us to look at it sooner and we shall respond as soon as we are able to.


Keep safe everyone and can't wait to chat to you very soon. smiley


Here are the details for google classroom.

Year 3 Learning Timetable at School and Home

This timetable of subjects each day is a good guide to make sure your week has balance of learning. It will also be useful if some of you are in school some days and at home other days so that your week flows together and hopefully you won't be repeating subjects at home that you have already experienced at school. We are so proud of the way you are all working at home and at school, keep up the fantastic work.

There are two reading comprehensions on the Iron man below.

Computing -Monday 11th January

LO: To understand how to use visual code to operate a program

Today you will be learning to code using Visual Code. These are blocks of instructions that when put together will make an algorithm. Please watch the tutorial video for the Classic Maze game.



Use this following website to complete this next activity.


Can you help the angry bird catch the naughty pig? Code will need to be dragged into the workspace to build an algorithm. Stack some 'move forward' blocks together and press 'run' to help the bird get there. Then work through the first 5 activities to operate the Maze game. Have fun creating your algorithms smiley.

THURSDAY 14.1.21

Calling all Fossils Hunters!

Use the link to watch the two fossil clips and work through the learner guides for fossils.

BBC Bitesize fossils 1

BBC Bitesize Fossils 2


Then look at the Fossil Hunter worksheet and the Fossil Hunter images. If you can print these images off and hide them around your house this might help you to feel like a fossil hunter!

Observe the images of the fossils carefully and describe what you think they are and what we can learn about the past from them recording this in the table.

Then you can have a look at the information sheet to see what the fossils are.


FRIDAY 15.1.21


Watch this video. We would have been completing this project over the next few weeks in school. If you can get hold of some wire/pipe cleaners/string, tissue paper, glue and pastels/crayons then you can complete it at home. If not, we have an alternative activity.


Have a look at the different fossils on the word document below. Sketch some of these in detail. Again try using different mediums such as pencil, pencils crayons, wax crayons, chalk, pastels, felt tips, charcoal or ink pens. If you are planning your design to make out of string/wire make sure it is simple enough to recreate.
