Hello Year 3

I hope you are all doing great and enjoying some time with your families.  I know the next few week will be strange but you are all superstars and will be brilliant!

Here are some of the things that we were looking at in school that you could work on at home.


Try and keep up with your daily acts of kindness, remember to wash your hands and have lots of FUN with your families.


See you all very soon


Mrs Dillon


Parents/carers, your child should have a QR code to log into the Class Dojo website/app. There will be regular tasks set for your child to complete! I can view their responses and leave a comment.
So far the responses to tasks that I have set have been fantastic so well done everyone.

In English this half term we are focusing on a book called Here Comes Charlie Moon by Shirley Hughes.  As well as writing in a number of different forms over the unit, we will build towards an end piece; which will include writing a newspaper article and a letter home to parents (from a long holiday away)

The skills we are focussing on in writing are:-

  • Use present and past tenses correctly and consistently
  • Use subordination (because, when, that)
  • Use punctuation correctly (fullstops, capital letters, exclamation marks, question marks)
  • Use apostrophes for possession 

If you wish to practice writing at home with your child during this time, it will be useful for you to focus on some of the above skills.

In Maths, we are always recapping on our number and place value skills using three digit numbers that include subtraction (exchanging/borrowing) and addition. 

We also continually focus on 6, 7, 8 and 9 timetables (useful games and links to support this are below).

Forces and Magnets

Compare how things move on different surfaces

Observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others.

Notice that some forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance.




For some fun science experiments you can try at home have a look at this site

There are lots of easy and fun experiments to do as a family.



Here are a few Easter activities to look at over the holidays. 
As it is Holy Week it is important to remember why we are celebrating Easter so there are some activities focusing on this.
