Dear Year 3 Parents


I hope you are all well. Welcome to Week 3 of activities. Please do as many as you can.

The activities are:


  1. Take words from the common exception list/high frequency list and play spelling games with your child. A sheet has been sent home with different ideas of how your child could practice their spellings. On a Friday the children are asked to be tested on the spellings they have learnt from that week. In school we say a sentence with the spelling in and ask the children to write the whole sentence.


  2. Maths - TT Rock stars - the children can play this game which works by giving them questions based on their initial assessment game. They can then earn coins and ‘buy’ things with these coins they have earnt.


  3. Science - shadows - using the beautiful sunshine (fingers crossed it continues) look at how shadows change at different times of the day. Can you measure your shadow stood in the same place at 5 different intervals throughout the day?


  4. Art - research cave paintings linked to our America topic - can you create your own version of a cave painting in the style you have researched?


  5. Please carry on reading at home. Helpful reading comments are on our website.


  6. Maths work is to be found on the education city website. In addition to this, any work on telling the time and measurement in centimetres, millimetres and metres would be fantastic.


  7. In RE we are learning about Easter. Please help your child to find out more about this special time of year. Videos can be found on BBC Bitesize websites. Can they draw some symbols that represent Easter?


  8. For History I have asked that the children compile a timeline for World War 2. There are resources cards that can be used to support this activity.

Thank you very much.


We look forward to seeing you soon.
