Home Learning Packs

This page has been set up to support you over the upcoming weeks. Our biggest priority is for our children to be happy and safe whilst continuing their education.


Please use this page to find learning for your child to complete at home. We are all around to continue to support you throughout this time so keep an eye on the page as there will be frequent updates.


Every Friday, we will be updating this page with more work for your child. If you are still continuing with work that is already on the website, that is fine to keep working on this. It is important to us that your child has work ready for when they need it. Remember every child will work at their own pace and that is ok.


It would also be hugely beneficial for your child to complete some exercise everyday too! Us teachers will be joining in with 'Joe Wicks Live' every morning at 9am. There is a link further below if you and your child would like to join in too.

Everyday essentials for your child:

Your child should complete each day:

  • At least one Maths activity
  • At least one Reading activity
  • At least one English activity
  • At least one Topic activity
  • At least one daily exercise (you could join us teachers at 9am following the 'Joe Wicks Live' - see the link further below


These activities could be using some of the websites below or from the tasks that we have put on this page. With regards to any topics set for English and their afternoon subjects, they should be worked towards each day and do not need to be completed in one go.


Websites to support your child's learning:

  • TT Rockstars and Numberbots
  • Bug Club 
  • Reading Eggs 
  • Mathletics 


Please find web links below.




Summer Term


Please find all of the new work uploaded for this current term below. The work uploaded before the Easter break is still on here but has been moved further down the page. Feel free to still complete any work from before Easter aswell but hopefully this reorganisation of our Year Three page should make it easier to navigate.


Here are the English Projects: (we hope you enjoy and have fun doing them, I know I am excited to see your entries)

Here are the Year 3 and 4 spelling words:

Creative Writing Challenge!


You might have seen the parentmail or email telling you about the creative writing challenge that our English Leader has set up for the whole school. Please find the challenge below, we look forward to receiving your entries!



Please still feel free to use Bug Club and Reading Eggs for your child's reading sessions if this is working for you. However, we have listened to feedback from parents and have found some children are finding this hard to use or are not that engaged with the resources. Therefore, we will be doing a reading challenge every couple of weeks and we will be uploading a few activities per week that your child could do. 


For the first week, we will just upload the reading challenges that your child can get started with. From next week, we will also upload some extra reading activities.





Please find some work below that your child could complete. This will be updated every Friday, during term time, with more work for the following week. Remember there are lots of great activities on Mathletics and your child can use TT Rockstars for their daily maths activity too!


Topic Work (afternoon subjects)


Each day your child should work towards one of these projects. Keep an eye on this section as it will be updated over the upcoming weeks. Remember these should not necessarily be completed in one afternoon and children should have enough time to create work of a high standard and does not need to be rushed.

Hi everybody, here is the music challenge for this week: 

Today I would love you to do some rhythm work using household objects. You can pick any song that you know and love and try and recreate it using household items!

I have attached some video examples! The more simple and recognisable the song and the rhythm that you repeat the better, I really hope that you enjoy having lots of fun with this. :)

Health and Wellbeing 

Our Health and Wellbeing topic for the following term is Relationships.


Week 1:  Create a family tree with the people in your household. See how far you can go back- maybe it is grandparents, or even great, great great grandparents!!! Make sure you show the relationships between the different members of the family. You could take a picture of the finished product and share them with us via Google Classroom or email the school office :)


Week 2: 

Did you know...

About 300 hours of YouTube video is uploaded every SECOND!
About 5 billion YouTube videos are watched every DAY!
About 6,000 new apps are created every day. 

This means we need to use our knowledge to decide which things we trust online and which we don't. 

We have previously looked at how to stay safe online and came up with rules as a class. 

This includes using the internet, gaming, apps and talking to others online. 

Present your knowledge on how to stay safe online- this could be through a powerpoint presentation, leaflet, poster or any other way that you choose. Please include some top tips for children your age. 

Be as creative as you want! We really want to see how much you know about being safe online, especially as it is so important right now! Include as much information as you can. 



Create a treasure hunt around your house. Write clues (or riddles!) to lead the player to the next clue and eventually the prize! This could be as simple as choosing what to watch on TV that evening or choosing what to have for dinner! Maybe your parents could also create one for you to complete :) 

Some fun Mental health activities





Listen to your favourite song and create a dance routine- this could even include the other people in your household! We would love to see these so share them with us through google classroom or via email to the school office. 


Also don't forget Joe Wicks and his workouts at 9am each morning. wink

Times Tables

“Pupils should be able to recite their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the age of nine.” - OFSTED, 2014. 

As a school we see the importance that times tables knowledge brings to a child's life and how it makes a noticeable impact on their maths. The children will be focusing on the 3s, 4s and 8s this term. Children should log onto their times tables rock stars account to continue to build on their knowledge and earn points in the process. 


Follow the below link to the Times Tables Rock Stars website:


Here is a link from a child's blog that was created for their project homework this half term.
The Year 3 children have settled back into school very well. This half term, they will be writing setting descriptions based on the book Journey by Aaron Becker. The children will also be reading Hodgeheg by Dick King-Smith within their reading lessons. 

Project Homework

The children have worked so hard with their project homework! It was a great afternoon for all of the year 3 children sharing their hard work with all three classes. Thank you for your continued support.

Science Explorer Dome - Light

Maths Day - Year 3 children had an amazing day at South View Junior School doing all sorts of exciting maths activities.

Some of our volcanoes: before the eruptions!

Longitudinal Study


The children have been discussing how we can grow different vegetables within the school grounds throughout the year.  Over the next few weeks, the children will be researching what vegetables will be suitable to grow at this time of year. Miss Tilcock will be working with some children to clear out the flowerbeds and plant our vegetables. 


If your child has a great interest in this, please feel free to send them into school with any books or research to share with their class.

Creative Curriculum


This term, the children are exploring about our 'Extreme Planet'. They have already started to identify the different climate zones and have been locating different mountain ranges. 


We are looking forward to receiving the children's volcanoes for their topic homework ready to erupt them. If you need support with your child's topic homework, please speak to their class teacher. 



In English, the children have been identifying the features of an instruction text. Throughout this topic, the children have been exploring how to write instructions using imperative verbs and time connectives. 


They have also enjoyed following different recipes and instructions as a class.




This term, the children are exploring how to create algorithms for their scratch characters. The children have been thoroughly enjoying their computing lessons.


The children have shown great determination towards their maths from the start of the year. It has been fantastic to see so many children trying to tackle different challenges within maths.
