Year 3

Hi Year 3,


We are really looking forward to seeing some of you over the next few weeks. We will be doing Forest School on the Tuesday of both weeks. Please come to school in clothes that are suitable (long sleeves/trousers/waterproofs/spare socks). It does not have to be school uniform.

Usually we get changed into our forest school clothes but we are asking you to attend school in your forest school clothes, which you will remain in for the day. A change of shoes/socks plus waterproofs is fine to have as extra. 


See you soon.

Miss Whitehead

Good morning Year 3! 


I hope you had a good weekend and are feeling refreshed for another week of home learning. Only 2 weeks to go until the summer holidays. Wow how has that come round so quickly?!


As you probably know, roughly half of the year group have gone back into school today which is very exciting! And it will be your turn before you know it. I really hope you are looking forward to it. If you have mixed feelings, don’t worry – that’s normal too! Keep talking about how you feel and rest assured your teachers are ready for you.


You will notice that the home learning that has been uploaded is for the next 2 weeks. If you are in school for 1 of these weeks it probably means you won’t have time to do everything. Choose the activities that appeal to you most or those that you think would be most helpful to your learning. Some of you may not be going back to school before the summer holidays but rest assured there are plenty of activities to get stuck into for the next 2 weeks.


All videos for The Diary of Killer Cat are now available on the video centre (there are 3 to watch!) Even if you don’t manage to get through all the comprehension questions you may want to watch them so you know how the story ends.  As well as the reading activities, for English there are SPAG lessons (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar). There are loads to choose from and some good revision options.


Maths this week continues with Mass and Capacity as well as Pictograms and Bar Charts. If you fancy a change there are other options through Oak Academy which you may want to do such as telling the time.


For the Foundation subjects there is a little of everything! History (a gruesome Ancient Egyptian mummification lesson!), a Science experiment, Geography, Computing, French and Art ideas.


Don’t forget to stay active! It’s so important to keep moving.

Keep posting on the Blog and have a great week.


Have a great week Year 3! Keep working hard and trying your best.
