Stainland Road, Stainland, Halifax, HX4 9HU
Dear Year 3,
I hope you all had a lovely Easter with your families and did lots of wonderful things together (and ate lots of chocolate!)
I have been really impressed by all your work so far and it has been lovely to hear what you have been doing.
I'm so proud of you all, keep up the good work and stay safe!
Please use this page to find daily activities for maths and English, as well as science and topic work. There is also a list of websites you may find useful in supporting your child with their home learning.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be available to contact between 9am-3pm every weekday. Please get in touch if you have any questions, queries or if there is anything you need help with!
Please do keep sending me anything your children are proud of and would like to share and I will upload them on our class page to share with the rest of the class.
Take care everyone,
Here are some websites that are offering free home learning resources and advice to support you at home:
BBC Bitesize are sharing online daily lessons and podcasts to support home learning.
Purple Mash has a wide range of activities and games, including maths, grammar and drawing as well as computing resources such as coding. Your child's login was sent home in the front of their workbooks, but if you do need me to send you it again please just drop me an email.
Joe Wicks from 'The Body Coach TV' is doing live stream PE lessons for children at 9am Monday-Friday for 30 minutes.
www.pobble365.com is a wonderful resource to inspire creative writing.
#DrawWithRob - Rob Biddulph, an artist, has uploaded draw-along videos for kids to follow.
Below is a 30 day Lego challenge:
Being able to talk about worries and feelings is important in these uncertain times, and the PSHE Association have put together a home learning pack for parents on supporting children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing which I have attached below.
Giving your days a structure can really help with keeping your child motivated and happy, as they may miss the usual routine of a school day. Below are two suggested ways for structuring your day:
Daily maths work
This half-term, I will be uploading a variety of activities for maths home learning. I will add to them each weekday and remove them to start afresh at the beginning of the next week.
White Rose Maths Hub will continue to upload their home learning lessons on the White Rose website here.
Times Tables Rockstars
Below you will find a collection of 5 times tables worksheets, 1 for every day this week. We would usually have 5 minutes to complete the worksheet to a rock song of your choice - a playlist can be found on the Times Tables Rockstars website and also on YouTube. Your child also has their own login (attached to home learning workbook front covers) so please encourage them to have a go on this as well. The aim is to speed up during the week whilst staying accurate with the answers. I have also uploaded an answer sheet so you can mark the answers together at the end.
Well done to everyone who has been practising online - I sent out several certificates for improved scores last week! Perhaps you will get one this week!
I would also recommend your child practises their mental arithmetic every day for around 15-20 minutes in total - little and often throughout the week is better than all in one go. Below are some suggested websites to help you to do this.
Numbots - Your child can log in to this using their Times Tables Rockstars username and password.
Hit the Button - Focus on number bonds, halves, doubles and times tables.
Telling the time - Practise telling the time using different clocks, to the nearest minute. You could do this in your home throughout the day but this website is also useful. Try to use vocabulary such as o'clock, am/pm, morning, afternoon, noon and midnight.
During the week, I will upload a daily english task for your child to complete. This will vary between writing, grammar and reading comprehension tasks.
I will also be uploading weekly spelling lists - your child should know which group they are in. In addition to this, I have uploaded a collection of challenge activities that your child can carry out with any spelling list. These could also be done with words from the Y3/4 spelling list found on our class page. Please try to practise spellings for a short amount of time each day and build towards a spelling test at the end of the week.
Please do continue reading with your child daily - this is such an important skill to develop and is a lovely way to spend time together. Oxford Owl are offering free access to their library of ebooks (you just need to create a login) and Audible are also giving free access to their collection of children's audiobooks so your child can listen to a story being read to them.

This half-term our topic is a science-based topic, all about animals and their habitats. We will be learning about what a habitat is, how to classify types of plants and animals and how they are suited to their own habitats.
Below is a website that has 40 wonderful ideas for projects and activities to carry out at home, plus a very clear introduction to the topic with child-friendly explanations of terms.
I have also uploaded a document with several ideas for at-home activities for you to carry out - please do send in photos of anything that you do!
To finish up our history learning about Romans, this week I would like you to create a model of a Roman villa. Use the helpsheet below as a guide, but feel free to create your own design - just make sure it fits with what we know about Roman villas.
Don't forget to send in a photo of what you make!
