Week 4

*** Week 4 Update ***

Happy Friday Year 3,

I love quotes from Dr. Seuss and this is one my favourites! 

Well done for all your wonderful efforts and superb work already this week! I have seen some amazing answers to our comprehension work and I have enjoyed reading your ideas about what you think has happened to Professor Howe. I will upload me reading the next two chapters next week. Also, you have been busy adding and subtracting fractions in maths and it has been great to see so many of you accessing the resources on White Rose Maths and playing the fractions game on Purple Mash.

You continue to impress us and make us proud to be your teachers - you are the most hardworking, resilient, caring and polite group of children we have met! 


We miss you dearly and can't wait to see you all very soon! 


BUT....for now keep up the hard work, do what you can in the circumstances you are in and remember your mountain is waiting.....



As always, it's been lovely to hear from you via email and seeing all of the things that you're getting up to. Keep the emails coming and keep smiling! I'll be adding some new photos that you have sent this week to the gallery later this morning, so have a look and see what everyone else has been up to. If you are yet to email me, it would be great to hear from you and to see what you have been up to.

Well done everybody. Stay safe, be kind, keep smiling and look after everybody.


Love from the Year 3 team – Mr E and Mrs Wood

Week 4


Hello year 3,


We hope you have had a lovely weekend and have been enjoying the sunshine. Thank you for asking about how we are as well. I hope that you've all settled back into your routines after the first week back after Easter, although I know that, at first, I found it a bit tricky to get back into the swing things after two weeks off.


We really are missing you and so we are really enjoying hearing/seeing what you have been up to. I'll be adding some new photos that you have sent this week to the gallery later this morning, so have a look and see what everyone else has been up to. Remember, do the tasks you can and complete the tasks we've given you throughout the week. There is no expectation of how much you need to complete, just keep doing your best.


Your work for the week is in the section below and you'll notice some parts of it are similar to what we've been doing already and some bits are different. Keep being the amazing children that you are and have fun, stay safe and keep smiling.

We have until Thursday and I will be keeping any eye out to see if we can move our class up the leader board and see if anyone in our class can get into the top 10 students in Leeds. 


There is no need to print most of the activities as answers and responses can be written straight into books or on any paper. – is another great website which has a wide range of activities for Maths and English.
