Year 3 homework 4.12.20

Dear Parents,

Please find attached the last Autumn term homework. As you will be aware, there are no group spellings this week as the pattern we are developing and embedding is adding ‘ed’ and ‘ing’ along with doubling the consonant (trim – trimming/ stop – stopping)

This will benefit all the children, so I encourage them to research and develop their understanding of when to double and when not to… This is something we shall be working on everyday next week in addition to them doing the homework.

Have a great weekend!

Year 3 Homework 16.10.20

Year 3 16.10.20 Autumn 1 Homework

word maps – spider diagrams 16.10.20

This week has been another brilliant week! I have really started to notice the stamina building in many of the children and they are really trying hard.


We have continued to work on multiplication this week.

Some children are working on “groups of” objects and amounts from the Year 2 syllabus. We have also revised our 5 timestables out of order and knowing the division alternative. Some children are continuing into the Year 3 objectives with timestables of 3’s, 8’s and 4’s while some have mastered this and now applying their knowledge in problem solving and missing number challenges.

In English, we have been learning how to use and create non-chronological reports. We have written about pandas, prehistoric beasts, significant people from black history month and the Bronze Age.

Some children are stick mastering Y1 objectives with spelling, sounds and punctuation. Most children are working within Year 2 writing objectives and need to refine these whilst starting to be introduced to Year 3 objectives such as paragraphing, fronted adverbials and starting sentences differently. We are also working hard on handwriting and spelling here in a year 3 with daily practice.

Our mini adventure has led us to the Bronze Age where we have been looking at the main differences between the eras. Looking at how evidence and fossils tell us about the past, we dissected our own coprolites and discussed how we knew they were from the Bronze Age.

We have also been looking at baptism and godparents. Thank you so much for your wonderful pictures- the children were so excited to share their posters and experiences!

I look forward to our last week being filled with lots more fun and learning opportunities!

Have a great weekend

Please remember that you can do other learning apart from this – there is a new website coming Monday on the BBC which provides actual lessons and plans for each age group.

Home learning pack Year 3 week commencing 23.3.20

Year 3 Work Pack

At school we use a variety of online programmes to support the children in their learning.  Below are the different logins and passwords for your child:

Welcome to Year 3 home learning!

Please find below computer based activities that have been assigned for the week. There are also hand-written or break away activities set.


Pupils are expected to still access and complete learning at home where possible. I have planned carefully so that the sequences given each week align with what we would have been learning. Whilst these activities are slimmed down for obvious reasons, they will give your child a focus.


Attached to this first pack are other documents, access passwords etc to other platforms such as duolingo for languages.


We shall endeavour to upload weekly plans and activities on a Sunday/ Monday onto the website so please ensure you have access to the Year 3 news and homework pages.


Take care, keep safe and we will see you soon!

Welcome back Year 3

Welcome back!

I hope the children enjoyed the first part week back and you are all having a relaxed weekend.

The children have been brilliant and settled in quickly to all the fun, magic and mystery!

Just a few mentions to get us started…

All the children have chosen their reading books and have had their diaries handed out. Please encourage your child to read a few times a week (although this doesn’t need to be their reading book every time). We will be reviewing the children’s book bands over the next couple of weeks.

As a school we have reviewed ‘homework’ and we will be sending out the new policy and guidance on this next week. First week of homework will be handed out next Friday to be handed in by the following Wednesday.

PE is currently Wednesdays and Fridays so please make sure kit is in school these days. Any piercings need to be covered by plasters by your child as we are not allowed to remove or cover.

Water bottles are out in class to be used all day- please make sure your child has a water bottle even if they are school dinners please.

Next week, you will find the Year 3 page updated with some useful interactive games. Please let me know if you find an app or website that is useful to your child as I will share this on our platform.

If you have any questions or queries, I am always available at the end of the day. You can also email the office or pop into the office to arrange an appointment if you need to discuss anything in private.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Mrs Wickett


Year 3 pillow cases and Egyptian exhibition

Evening All,

I am looking forward to seeing all the projects next week, amazing efforts so far!

Next week we will be designing and making an Egyptian fashion show and need white/ cream pillow cases please. If you have any spare white sheets, gold beading/ egyptianesque’ clothing decor etc that you don’t want back we would really appreciate the donations! The more pillow cases the better as we will be exploring the hierarchy of society. (Just to clarify, the material itself does not need to be Egyptian cotton- polyester is fine 🙂 )


On Thursday 11th July, Year 3 will be opening the doors for a one time only egyptian exhibition! You will receive your ‘invitations’ next week for the children.

It will start at 3pm and you will come through the main entrance to sign in before being escorted by the pharaohs guards to the exhibition!

As always, thank you for the continued support.

Have a good weekend,

Mrs Wickett
