Year 3

Hello all!  Thank you for your support and kindness over the closure.

Each child should have come home with their Home Learning pack for the forthcoming weeks. The packs include a variety of maths, grammar, reading and writing activities which can be worked through in any order.

Please check on this page periodically where we will post more as time goes by.

For now, keep safe, keep well and we are looking forward to seeing you all again eventually.

Easter Challenges!

We've created some fun Easter challenges for you to have a go at over the next few weeks. You may choose to tackle just your teacher's challenge or all three challenges! You will find the challenges attached at the bottom of the page.

We'd love to see photos of the final outcomes.

Thank you to the children and families who have been sending us photos of your work! It is lovely to see how you are all getting on and some of your snack shops are very impressive!  

We have now created a photo album section in the 'Curriculum' section of this website if you would like to see what your friends have been up to.  

If you would like your photos added to this album, please send them to the Year 3 team.

Create a snack shop!

In year 3, it is really important that we begin to understand and explore how we use money in our everyday lives.  This week, as you are going about your home learning, why not create your very own snack shop?

1. You will need to gather up some snack choices from your kitchens at home (make sure you check with an adult first!) and give each item a price.  For example, you might choose to price a banana at 15p.

2. Make a price label for each snack and lay the snacks out on a table/your kitchen counter. 

3. Put your snacks on sale! Each time a family member would like a snack, they can visit your snack shop to purchase a food item of their choice.  They must pay you and it is your job to tell them which coins to use and work out if they need any change.

4. You could create a receipt of all of the food items sold each day.

Enjoy creating your snack shop - be sure to send the Year 3 team some photos of your creations! We will look forward to seeing them.

Make a Time Capsule!!

We are living in interesting times; the year 2020 is sure to go into the history books!

What would you like historians in the future to know about this year?  What messages would you like to send to the grown-up you?

Why not make a time capsule, to show people in the future what life is like and what’s happening in the world in Spring 2020?

Find full details of this activity and ideas attached below.

We hope that you are all keeping safe and spending time outside in your garden enjoying the sunshine!

Us Year 3 teachers have a little activity for those of you who are missing learning more about the Romans. Had we been in school, we would have now been finding out more about daily Roman life and creating a poster to share with our class. For this activity, we would like you to become an expert in one or two areas of Roman life and create a poster with the facts you find out. Here are some of the areas you can research further:





Language (Latin)


Roman Baths - Sewage

Entertainment and leisure

Religion – Gods


We would love to see your poster once you have completed it and pop it on our website for the rest of the year group to see. If your parents are happy for you to be on the school website, you could ask them to take a photo of you holding it or alternatively you can just photograph the poster alone.


If you're planning on baking Roman bread, we would also love to see the final outcomes!  


Please email the pictures to all of the teachers in Year 3. Your Year 3 teacher's email addresses can be found in your Home Learning pack.

We hope that your first day of home-schooling went well yesterday - we were thinking of you all. 

Hopefully you have been working your way through some of your learning packs already as well as getting outside to enjoy the sunshine!  Remember to have a go at some Education City activities as well as challenging your parents to a game on Hit the Button too!

Had we been in school today, we would have been making Roman Bread as a link between our DT and history learning.  Below is a recipe for this, if you would like to try it at home. If you do, have a think about why the Romans may have been some of the first people to make bread and what this tells us about them as people.   You could even write a set of instructions for someone else to tell them how to make the recipe too. Have fun!


This year, you have been getting to grips with using the programme 'Scratch' to make short animations. As part of your home learning, you could continue to practise and refine your coding skills by logging on to Scratch. Below is a link for the website:
