Home Learning week beginning 2nd September


Practise your times tables using Times Tables Rock Stars or Hit the Button.  



There are some extra colouring sheets you can have a go at here if you want. 

This half term we will begin with a unit of work focussing on place value. Choose a 2 digit number and create a mind map/poster to tell everyone what’s so great about your number! For an extra challenge, you could make another one using a 3 digit number. 

Have a look at an example here. 


Recap over spelling the common exception spelling words from KS1.

This half term we will be focussing on stories and poems about the dark (to link with our topic work). Can you write a description of this night time scene from Harry Potter?   


Remember to choose your adjectives carefully and to write in sentences using sentence punctuation. Have a look at the example below: 

The light from the moon shone on the great black lake. The lake was as smooth as glass. Perched on the top of a high mountain on the other side with its windows sparkling in the starry sky, was a vast castle with many turrets and towers. There was a fleet of little boats sitting in the water by the shore.  

Here is a word mat that you could use to help you. 


This half term in RE our topic is “Belonging-We belong to God’s Family.” Next week in class we will start to think about the different groups that we belong to e.g. our families, our school, football teams, tennis club, God’s family, our parish, Scouts. Can you write some sentences/create a PowerPoint/make a mind map or create a poster about a group that you belong to? (Think about: Which group do you belong to? Why do you like belonging to this group? Do you have any special roles or responsibilities in this group?) Over the next few weeks we will share this work with the rest of the class. If you have any photographs or objects connected with your group that you would also like to share that would be great too. 




Welcome to the class page for Year 3, here you will find out some information about timetable and class expectations. Year 3 marks the beginning of KS2, which means the children will be starting to work more independently on a variety of exciting and fun themes, such as the Ancient Egyptians. 



Year 3 also marks an important year for the Catholic children in their journey through the Sacraments. This year they will take part in Reconciliation and then make their First Holy Communion. These are very special times which will help bring the children closer to God. More information will be given to you about these events closer to the time.


In Year 3 you will receive the following homework, we expect homework to be completed on time.

  • Reading - This should continue nightly with a comment from yourself three times a week when you have heard your child read. Year 3 staff will check reading records regularly to make sure it is happening.
  • Times table practice - This should again be happening regularly at home to make sure you are confident with your times tables. Times table rock stars passwords are in the back of the children’s reading records!
  • Your child will receive a grid with all of the spellings for the half term. We then work through these weekly. Spelling tests are every Friday. 
  • Homework – your child will bring home a homework sheet with a choice of activities.  An activity needs to be completed every week and handed in by Thursday at the latest. 

General reminders


  • Please ensure all children have appropriate footwear for woodland warriors in school. We will have Woodland Warriors on Wednesday mornings – children will need wellies if possible as it can get muddy.  They will be provided with water proofs to go over their uniform so they will not need any special clothing. 
  • Water bottles: Please ensure that your child brings a water bottle for the classroom, containing water only.
