Welcome to Year 3!


Week Commencing Monday 6th July 


Hi Year 3,

I am so excited to have you all back in the classroom this week for the next 2 weeks! As you will be in school for two days, there are less home learning activities for the week. I have added home learning activities that can be completed over the three days you are at home. I hope you are all excited to be back! School will be slightly different but there is absolutely nothing to worry about, I am sure you are going to have a lot of fun! 


Please also remember to bring a pencil case for the days you are at school.

This week there are some worksheets to complete each day.

In preparation for next year, it is time to think about our class Green Team and School Council Representatives. If you would like to be on Green Team or School Council, this week I would like you to write a short piece explaining why you would like to be on the team and what makes you a good candidate for the job. You can then either record your speech or send the written version to me.

If you don’t want to be a Green team or School Council Rep then you should apply for a different classroom role. I will be thinking of classroom monitors for next year (there may be more than 1 monitor for each job). These jobs are really important as they help our classroom run smoothly (and you get to earn extra dojos for your brilliant help!)

These are the classroom monitor roles:

  • Ipad/ Laptop Cupboard Monitor
  • Book Shelf Monitor
  • Broom Monitor
  • Continuous Provision Monitor
  • Locker Monitor
  • Art Monitor
  • Classroom helper (giving out books, helping Miss Ross hand out things, getting equipment ready for P.E etc)

Again, write a short piece explaining why you would like this job and what makes you a good candidate for the role then send it to me. 

Activity 1

Activity 2

Activity 3

Handwriting Practice

It is also important to spend some time practicing your handwriting! We usually do handwriting practice every day in class so I have got a booklet for you to complete.

If you have finished the booklet, try the other handwriting activities above. I have added a 'Pencil Control Workbook' which is about focusing on your pencil grip and control to help you trace the lines carefully and neatly. Watch this video first and then have a go at the activity:

You can do a little 5-minute practice each day before you start your English Tasks or you can choose 2 days of the week to spend 15 minutes practicing. Remember to warm your hands up properly before. Watch the clip for some warm-up exericses:



Comprehension Task 1: The Story of Arachne 

Comprehension Task 2: The Story of the Banana 

For comprehension Tasks 1 and 2, if you find reading tricky complete the sheet that has 1 star at the bottom. If you don't find reading tricky, read and complete the sheets with 2 or 3 stars at the bottom. 



This week your spellings activities will be slightly different as we have practiced all of the weekly spellings from the Year 3/4 list! I would like you to practice some key homophones. Can’t remember what homophones are? Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings and different spellings. E.g I can’t hear you and I would like you to come over here. It is quite easy to get the spellings muddled up sometimes so it is important to practice these and learn which sentence the word would go in. Watch this BBC clip if you are unsure:


Activity 1  

There, They’re or Their?

Today I would like you to learn when to use these key homophones in sentences. Here is a cool picture to help you remember them! Complete the worksheet linked at the top of the page.

  • Their shows that something belongs to someone e.g The football team put on their football boots.
  • There refers to a place or position e.g She had left her bag over there on the seat.
  • They’re is a contraction of they are e.g They’re all going to the school disco on Friday.  

Activity 2 

To, Two or Too?

  • To is a preposition which is used to show direction e.g They went to the Cinema. I went to France on holiday.
  • Two is the spelling for the number 2 when we have to write it in word form e.g I ate two lots of cake at the party.
  • Too is an adverb (remember not all adverbs end in -ly!) which shows when there is an excess (too much of something) e.g I ate too much cake at the party. He is singing way too loudly.

Today write three sentences correctly using these homophones.


Activity 3 

Complete the word search on homophones linked at the top of the page. Challenge: Could you tell your parents the different meaning for each spelling?



Remember to do your Daily 5 before any maths learning to warm up your brains!

Day 1

Day 2

Day 3

___ x 3 = 15

___ x 3 = 27

__ x 3 = 36

745 – 343 =

224 – 127 =

699 – 258 =

47 + 2 + 53 =

12 + 11 + 3 =

88 + 4 + 16 =

76 is __ more than 69

85 is __ less than 100

25 is __ more than 11

368 - 5 =

287 – 9 =

758 – 4 =


This week, Maths home learning is slightly different. I would like you to complete some of the activities from the Year 3 Maths Revision Booklet on multiplication and division linked above. You don’t have to complete the whole booklet within these 3 days, pick 1-2 activities to complete each day.


Times Tables

This week you will still be recapping the 3 and 4 times tables. I still have set them on Times Table Rockstars. I have also linked some Youtube videos with songs to help you remember them. 

3 x tables:

4 x tables:



I have found a fantastic multiplication game that you can print out and use to help you learn ALL of your times tables! 



Here are a few links to some fun YouTube videos that will get you moving and help you stay active!

The Body Coach is holding live 30 minute P.E sessions for children on his YouTube channel Monday-Friday at 9 am.



This week we are going to learn about the religion of Buddhism and more specifically, the life of Buddha.

Learn about what Buddhism is and core beliefs:

Learn about the life and journey of Buddha:

Draw and make Buddhist Mandalas

A mandala is a symbolic picture of the universe. It can be a painting on a wall or scroll, created in coloured sands on a table, or a visualisation in the mind of a very skilled adept.

The mandala represents an imaginary palace that is contemplated during meditation.
