Year 3 Home Learning – Thursday 7th January

Good morning Year 3.

Due to the problems with the website yesterday, you will be receiving two pieces of work today. This means you can complete all of yesterday’s tasks and then work on todays. Don’t forget to email your completed work to me (when you have finished it all) by 8pm tonight so I can give you your feedback tomorrow.

Today you will carry on with English from yesterday and complete an RE task to begin our new topic of Journeys.


You will carry on using the BFG for your English today. In this lesson, we will recap what a verb is, define a simple sentence and write our very own simple sentences. Use the video below, remember to pause when asked to so you are able to complete the tasks.

When you have completed the video, please make 5 of your own simple sentences. Remember to make sure your sentence makes sense on its own, you have no joining words and you have remembered your capital letters and full stops.


We are beginning our new RE topic today. Throughout this topic, you will learn about the Christian family’s journey with Jesus. To begin, you will look at special events in your own life and then begin to delve further into important events in the Church’s calendar.

Today I would like you to think about the celebrations during the Christmas holiday.  What events marked this time?  What special ways does your family have for celebrating Christmas and the New Year? Think about the whole year, the school terms and the events at school and in the family.  Also think about Bank Holidays (holidays for all), family birthdays, family holidays, seasons and special days e.g. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Bonfire Night and how these are usually celebrated. (Although I realise this year has been different to normal.)

Task 1: Answer the questions below, please make sure you write in full sentences.

  1. What makes the journey through the year good?
  2. What makes the journey through a year difficult? (How this year has been more difficult because of lockdown etc.)
  3. If you were going on an actual journey, who would you like as a companion?
  4. How would you travel?
  5. What would you take with you?
  6. What would be your reasons for these choices?

Task 2: Paint the year, using different colours for the seasons, which reflect the mood of that season.  If you do not have paint, use coloured pencils, pens or crayons.


If you finish all of your work, you can burn off some of your energy through the fitness workout shown in the video below.


Don’t forget you have access to all of the following extra activities. If you need your password, please let me know and I will find them for you.

I am looking forward to receiving your work and will be in touch tomorrow.

Year 3 Home Learning – Wednesday 6th January

Good morning Year 3.

I can’t believe we are back here again! I will miss you all lots over the next few weeks but know you will all work really hard while you are at home. Please send all your completed tasks to by 8pm tonight so I can see all of the the work you have done. I will reply by the end of the day tomorrow.

For the remainder of this week and into next week, we will continue our addition and subtraction work in maths. For English, we will move onto a story narrative, all about the BFG. I love this story and hope you will too. I know lots of you might have read the book or seen the film already so think you might enjoy this. Your other tasks will change daily, but we will be following the work we have been doing in class already.


For your English today, I would like you to watch the video below. You will be using the story, The BFG, to identify the main characters and the setting in the book.  Using this information, you will sketch and label your setting using adjectives. Please take your time on this task, make sure your drawings and handwriting are as neat as they would be in school.


Within Maths, we will be continuing our addition and subtraction work which we started yesterday. Please watch the video before you start your task. It might be useful to use some objects you have around the house instead of the Base 10 which we used in class. You could even draw your own hundreds, tens and ones grid to help you.

Once you have watched the video, please complete the worksheet below.

Jesse Tree


During Advent, Year 3 have been preparing for Jesus’ arrival by exploring the Jesse Tree. Each day the children have shared a Bible story and added a symbol to the Jesse Tree. These symbols represent how God prepared for the arrival of Jesus, which is shown in scripture throughout the Bible.

Party Day


Year 3 had a wonderful party day! The children completed some Christmas crafts, took part in a Christmas quiz (and did very well too). They danced, ate and even got to have a chat with Santa who called them all the way from the North Pole!

Biscuit Henge


Year 3 have been studying Stone Henge as part of their Geography topic. The children have been looking at the structure as well as how it was built. Today, Year 3 have had the opportunity to build their own Stone Henge from biscuits! Although it was tricky, the children did an amazing job of recreating the historical site.
