Year 3 Weekly Update              Week commencing 8th June 2020

Hello Year 3! We hope you are all well and that you are enjoying distance learning. We have seen some lovely work over the last few weeks and would love to see lots more! Don’t forget, you can send it to for us to admire and we’ll add it to the Gallery.

Below are some suggested tasks for this week. Please be aware that some of these resources are on our school website and some you will need to create yourself. Take them as far as you would like to, but don’t forget to keep practising your skills to move forwards with your learning.




3TS and 3B –Myths and Legends

We hope you enjoyed reading ‘The Sword in the Stone’ story and how Arthur discovered he was the rightful King of Britain, by pulling the sword from the stone.  We have enjoyed reading your storyboards.

This week we would like you to read or ask an adult to read to you  ‘The First Battle’.  What do you think King Arthur is like?  What is his character?

Use the character profile sheet to describe Arthur – what he looks like and his personality- is he weak or strong?

Remember to write neatly and clearly.

There is space for you to draw a picture of Arthur – maybe you could draw him in his armour holding the sword. Remember to colour in your drawing.

We would also like you to draw and label what you think King Arthur’s castle looks like – use the castle sheet to help you name the different castle features.

These links will help you:

We really look forward to reading your character profiles and seeing your castle drawings.

Fun ways to practice spellings



Reading to and listening to your child read is so important. Please could you listen to your child read at least 3 times a week. The reading material can be anything from books, comics, game instructions to food labelling. This can still be recorded in your child’s reading record and initialled.


The BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons website has some fun, useful lessons which the children can enjoy – Have a look at  ‘Mastering Inverted Commas’ this week  (8th June) at

BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons If you want to challenge yourself even further you can also look at ‘Their, they’re or there?’ (14th May) to really polish up your skills!

Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve

Look again at the map of Gibraltar Point nature reserve. You can see it is a complex mixture of different habitats. How many different ones can you spot? Below is a series of pictures of these different habitats and a list of the correct labels for these pictures. Can you match the labels to the pictures? The last attachment is the answers, so make sure you have a good go first and try not to peek!

Light and Shadows

This week we are going to learn how shadows are made.

Go outside in the sunshine and look carefully at your shadow. What is it? Why is it there? Why does it move? What does it look like when it moves? How is it made?

Make a list of the things you notice about your shadow, especially its shape, colour and position.

Now look at the attached sheet to explore how your shadow is made.

This You Tube video will help you understand too.

In school we have been completing the daily live workout by Joe Wicks at 9 – 9:30am. It’s a great way to start the day.

You can always catch up with the live recordings later or look at his 5 or 8 minute workouts on his YouTube Channel

You may also want to look at doing some children’s Yoga to give a peaceful moment to your day.


Other ideas:

Madame Dale’s French Homework is Here

Take the time to read a good book.

Why not find an article on Newsround ( and have a chat with a parent/carer about it to find out their point of view.

Don’t forget, if you want more ideas for things to do, there are a whole range of activities on the school website. There are also lots of links to other websites, broadcasts, and resources for you to make the most of.

We have particularly been enjoying David Walliams weekday stories and having Audible, full of lots of great e-books/audio books, available for free.

There’s also the weekly Lego challenge on the school website, we look forward to seeing the results.

Note for parents/carers:

We continue to received lots of very positive feedback from children completing their work at home and it has been great to see the fruits of their labours via e-mail and be able to upload them to our website gallery.

Don’t forget, you can always share work with us using or you could create a scrap book of all your child’s work as a record of their home school journey.

We realise this is also an extremely stressful time for many families, so if getting work done is tricky, please do not worry about it; there are no deadlines! The most important thing is to look after your family and yourself, and research shows that if nothing else, reading everyday will help your child make progress.

Although the National Curriculum has been suspended, we would like to provide you with these activity ideas to keep the children on track and spark their interest in the topics we would have been looking at if we were at school. Don’t worry if your learning leads you to explore new areas! We’d love to know what you find out.
