Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


Hi Year 3,


I have been so proud of you so far this school year. You came back to school with a fantastic attitude and you have worked hard throughout the last term. Home learning can be challenging at times so I want you all to remember how amazing you all are and to always give tasks a go and please put your best effort into your work. 



Each day new lessons will be uploaded to one note. Each lesson will have a set of instructions and will have videos or PowerPoints to help the children with their learning.


The timetable below is a suggestion for how you can organise your day. This is a helpful way to make sure you have enough time for lessons and get enough breaks in the day. I understand that it is not always possible to follow this timetable so please only do what is reasonable for you. 



Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Here are some instructions to help you with one note. These instructions will stay on one note throughout home learning so you can always refer back to them when necessary. 


OneNote Class Notebook Tutorial - YouTube

Each day I will be uploading Daily 5 maths questions. These are optional and the cover maths questions based on any topic we have learnt this year so far. 


Each day there will also be a half hour PE session with Mr Edwards. Each Monday there will be exercises to complete and an exercise chart has been added at the bottom of this page for you to complete. This chart is only completed on Mondays. Each Monday you can try and beat your score from the previous week. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday there will be different sessions for you to complete. 


At the end of Monday - Thursday there will be a story time. On one note there is a link to PowerPoint with our class story. Each day I will be reading a new section of the book for you. You can either listen to me reading the book or you can join in too - it is up to you. I hope you enjoy the story. 


Once a week  (1-1.30pm)I will also be doing a zoom call with a group of children from the class. I will be letting you know what day your child will be taking part as soon as possible.
