Grow through the love of Jesus

Year 3

I hope you and your families had a lovely Christmas and are all doing well. As you may already know, you will not be returning to school as normal on the 7th January unless you are a Key Worker Child. 

You will have English, Maths, RE and at least on other activity put onto Seesaw to complete each day and I urge you to complete this work so that you are up to date with the work set.

I hope we can see each other soon and I hope you and your families stay safe.

Hello Year 3! I am missing you all very much. I hope you are all doing well and are busy doing lots of different activities. Here are some more activities for you to have a go at. Enjoy and I hope to see you soon!

Keep practising your times tables, especially your 3's, 4's and 8's.

Work on fractions. You can use this link for mini-lessons!

Continue playing prodigy – I’m very impressed with everyone that has been on so far you are doing amazingly well!



Listen to David Walliams reading a story!

Write a book review for a friend! Make sure you accurately punctuate your sentences. Think about descriptive phrases that you could use to add extra detail. 

To finish off our instructions topic, write your own instructions for something so that we can all share our ideas. Make sure you use imperative verbs, adverbs and time connectives. 

Watch Newsround and discuss what is happening Can you write your own newspaper article about one of the things they discussed in the video? OR you could write your own newspaper article about what has happened today/this week.



Play noughts and crosses but with your spellings instead! 

Keep practising your spellings!

Other Activities

Get someone to draw around your body. Can you label where different things in your body are? Do you know where our bones are and what they are called?

Have a look in recipe books/online recipes and bake/cook! Copy down the recipe so we can share our favourites. Challenge: can you make a healthy meal or snack? Take a picture of your creation!
