Welcome to the Summer Term.

We hope you are all well and managing to get out in the fresh air as much as possible. Below you will find a variety of ideas for remote learning from your child's teacher. Please use these ideas when you think it is right for your family, don't stress about schoolwork. In September, we can get your children back on track. Right now what we can't do anything about is how your children are feeling. So please share your calm, strength, laughter and love with your children. Your children are exactly where they need to be at the moment.


Please phone the school office if there is anything we can help you with on 01233 614660 or email on

School Closure Remote Learning Information

Dear Parents, carers and children

Year 3 have been sent home a blue workbook to complete projects and activities in or to keep a home diary while we are not in school.

They have also received a spellings booklet, which contains the spellings for next term with a range of activities to practise these spellings each day.

Within the blue workbook, the children have the passwords and usernames for them to access the following websites.

Times Table Rock stars

(Practise and learn your times tables)

Education City

(Games and activities for English, Maths, science, computing and French)

Purple Mash

(Games and activities to develop maths, English, science, topic, computing, art)


(Daily work set by your class teachers- open in google chrome)

Miss Emms, Mrs Matthews and Mrs Q  will be uploading work to seesaw each week with daily tasks for the children to complete in English, Maths and Connected Learning.

Remember do as little or as much as you can, we appreciate time is about a balance and we actively encourage lots of outside activities and fresh air, cooking, crafting and reading.

Keep safe and well and we hope to see you all again soon.


Miss Emms, Mrs Matthews and  Mrs Q

Mrs Matthews, Miss Emms and Mrs Quaglia welcome you to Year 3.


In Maths we follow the White Rose and the Big Maths curriculum, which involves using concrete and pictorial methods to solve fluency calculations, problem solving and reasoning.   


We have regular time tables, where we are learning our 3, 4, 6 and 8 times tables and revisiting our 2,5 and 10 times tables and corresponding division facts. Apps such as ‘Times Tables Rockstars’ (which all children have individual log ins to) and online games such as ‘Hit the Button’ and ‘Coconut Multiples’. These can be found on the ‘Topmarks’ website and will help the children with the speed of recall in a fun and engaging way (Links below).


In English, we are linking our chosen text to our Connected Learning topics with fun and interesting fiction, non-fiction and picture books, covering units which include, stories in familiar settings, poetry, playscripts, report writing, recounts, letters and instructions. There is a key focus on grammar, spelling and punctuation, we look at specific rules and patterns each week and complete regular spelling tests. In addition, it would benefit the children to be able to spell all of the common exception words for Year 3 and 4 (Link below).

We have lots of fun things in store with our Connected Learning topics. These will include subjects on:

  • Natural disasters and Volcanoes
  • The Romans
  • Forces and magnets
  • Light
  • Animals including humans
  • Plants

Each of these will have a focus question to try and solve over the year.

Although there is no formal homework in Year 3, we do have a termly home learning challenge. In addition, we would appreciate you reading daily with your child and practising the spellings and times tables as this will have an impact on their confidence in lessons.

We are always available before or after school, so please come and find us if you have any questions.
