Year 3



Welcome to Year 3. 

The Year 3 team are Mrs Tuck and Miss Babbage.

Here is our class wish list on Amazon. 

Monday 25th May


Happy Bank Holiday! Hope you have all had a great weekend. There isn't any home learning this week as its half term. However, I have posted a video on multiplication - which is further down the page. Division will follow shortly.

Hope you are all well!     


Also if you have any additional phonics learning at school then please go to the 'Home Learning' tab and click on Phonics for some phonic lessons!


For Maths this week, please have a go at any of the below:

1. Design a tree house, clothes or car, and ask them to work out the right measurements.

2. Play with cards. Take 2 cards and add the numbers up together. Player with highest number wins. Try with subtraction, multiplication and division too.



You can also use the below links to see me teaching some addition and subtraction objectives, and included in it are opportunities to solve some number sentences yourself!

Addition maths lesson



Please continue to use the links below for online home learning:

These are user friendly and easy to use from a mobile. The lessons are well sequenced so whichever one you choose, make sure you complete the entire block rather than dipping in and out of them. 

The National Academy has a quiz at the beginning but please don't feel you have to do this.

Feel free to send photos of any work that you would like to show and write to me if you have any questions.

Whilst you are all at home please look at the spelling lists below and make sure you can spell them. Please read as much as you can, go on Times Table Rock Stars daily and then use the links below to choose a learning activity of your choice. It is important that you follow the time table that Mrs Fletcher gave out as best as you can.

The above website contains links for online learning. The websites below include downloadable worksheets which can be completed if you have access to a printer and paper. Or you could just complete them on plain paper, looking at the sheets off the screen.

I hope you are all ok. I will really miss you during this time but I will be in touch with you all soon to find out how you are. Please use this time to also bake, paint, complete crafts, watch a film, build a den in your living room, do a puzzle and ultimately have fun with your families. Take care everyone.

Year 3 Homework

The children are given two pieces of homework every week. They will have a GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling) homework which will be handed out every Monday and need to be in by Thursday morning. Also, the children will receive a piece of maths homework. This will be given every Thursday and needs to be in by the following Monday. Maths homework is related to the children’s targets and will help them in their times tables tests each week.  

Reading Journals

After reading each book (or once a week if your child has shorter books), the children need to complete an activity in their reading journal. They need to choose a different activity each week. This enables the children to show they have understood the books they read at home.

Reading in Year 3

Your child will be given a book and a reading diary to bring home. They need to read their book with an adult and be able to talk about it before bringing it in to swap for another book. Their reading record needs to be signed by an adult and an adult or the child needs to comment on the book.

Spellings in Year 3

Here is an overview of the Year 3 spellings. Children should also be able to spell the Year 3 Common Exception Words.
