Dear Year 3,
Here we are in the last half term of our school year! I hope you've been making the most of the beautiful weather we have had and had a lovely holiday week.
Hopefully we will be safely back together soon, but until then, 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 email@example.com; 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 week, please use the daily maths activities from White Rose - we are still following the 'alternative plan' from their website. You can find the worksheets and answers below. Please complete the Friday maths challenge from BBC Bitesize.
Find the White Rose Maths Hub 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.
I will be checking in to see if anyone has earned a certificate for improving their rating this week! Keep trying!
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.

Science and Topic
This half-term we are going to extend our science learning from last half-term about animals and their habitats, by moving on to food chains and ecosystems.
In geography, we are going to learn about fieldwork and map skills, which you will be able to apply to your walks around the local area.
