It’s been great to see more of the fantastic work produced by you this week. Here’s the suggested home learning for this coming week – please aim to do some daily Maths and English/other foundation work and keep your emails, tweets and pictures coming so we can see what you are up to!

As usual, you can contact us on email or via twitter @Year3WR

Miss Hallahan –

Mrs Tite –


This week in Maths we are revising measure. There are individual links below to each day’s video as we are following the alternative White Rose plan. (Sheets are all saved below).

As this is revision of work we have done already the children may recognise some of the work and need to use the extra sheets from Classroom Secrets to extend their learning or you might want try some of your own ideas.

Watch the video for each day and complete the relevant worksheet (all saved below with answer sheets).

Monday – Measure length

Tuesday – Equivalent lengths (m and cm)

Wednesday –  Equivalent lengths (mm and cm)

Thursday – Compare lengths

Friday –  Mental Maths test Spring 1 (an adult will need to read the questions out. Don’t worry too much about the timings) and Times Tables challenge. How quickly can you complete the sheet? Try again next week and see if you can beat your time!


Follow the daily lessons from BBC bitesize –

Big Write! This week we’d like you to plan and write a story using this image from Pobble 365. (If you’ve used this picture before then chose another one).

Use the attached storyboard to plan out your ideas and the story starter and questions at the bottom of the Pobble page to get more ideas (also saved onto a ppt below). Start by describing the two settings (school classroom and jungle) before introducing the characters and telling the story of their adventure. Take a session each for planning, writing and editing (with a coloured pen/pencil).

Complete some reading/ a reading comprehension on First News or Fiction Express. The latest editions of First News can be found here


Watch the video from espresso (you’ll need to be logged in first – student2216, wransom)

Look at the powerpoint and then the information sheet on hieroglyphics.

Complete the sheets to crack the codes and write in hieroglyphs.


Continuing on from our last few lessons on skeletons – Humans have joints which allow different amounts of movement.  Explore how the body can bend into different shapes. How many different parts of the body you can bend and how many different shapes you can bend into?

Look at the ppt presentation and focus on the page on ‘Joints’ which introduces the three main types of joint –

  • ball and socket
  • hinge joint
  • gliding joint

Copy the pictures of different joints and say which part of the body they are found in or complete the worksheet by identifying where the different joints are.


Follow Home activity pack 1. Watch the video and then write a list of top tips for the Band wanting to put their song on the internet. If time, change these top tips into a safety poster.

Look at the techniques used on the images of paper sculptures below and have a go at creating your own, sticking them down onto a piece of A4 or A3 paper. Try to use different colour strips as well as thinking about height. What can you do with your paper? Fold it, Stick it, Twist it, Curl it, Cut it… so many ideas!
