Week 6

*** Week 6 Update ***

Good morning Year 3,

I hope everyone has had a good week, there has been a lot of amazing emails from all of you this week which I am really enjoying reading and looking at.


This week I have seen some amazing work which you have completed on Purple Mash and I do love reading all your messages you leave when you hand in a piece of work, they really bring a smile to my face. I have also started to see some fantastic topic work been sent in from Roman mosaics and shields to times tables completed in Roman numerals. I will continue to add your pictures to the class gallery as and when I receive them. It's great to also see so many of you looking after and guiding younger siblings, showing kindness and maturity. I am beyond proud of how well you are all doing at such a challenging and difficult time, it just reminds me of what a special class you are!


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 6


Good morning Year 3,


I cannot believe it is Week 6 of home learning. We hope you have all had a lovely long weekend and were able to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VE in a safe manner. Some of the work that we were sent was excellent - you should be proud of yourselves!


Thank you so much for your continued resilience with home learning and keep checking in with us - even just to say hello as we want to see how you are! We are really proud of you and remember to do what you can, with what you have, where you are.


We hope you all have a lovely week!

Mr Elliot & Mrs Wood

This week, we will continue to read History Hackers – Roman Rescue.

History/ Topic

We hope you will enjoy completing the activities, which can be completed anytime throughout the Summer Term. The children can choose to complete as many of the activities they would like, once an activity has been completed you send it to me on the Year 3 email address and will upload them to our class web page.



This week, and for the next few weeks, I would like you to choose one European country to explore in more detail. To do this, you are going to be finding out about the human and physical geography of your chosen country. Remember human geography focuses on human activity such as population, culture and communities and physical geography focuses on the natural world. This can include anything in nature, from mountains, volcanoes and hills to lakes, streams and rivers. It also includes looking at the climate and weather, as well as the environment.

You can present your work in any way you wish, for example a poster or PowerPoint. I have added a template to the resources section below.


REMEMBER – search the internet safely – search using ‘ks2’ or ‘for kids’.



Continuing with our topic on nutrients I would like you to have a go at one or both of the following activities:

1.Complete a nutrition diary. Keep a record of everything you eat and drink throughout the day and then write down which foods give you which nutrients.


2. Using the 2Do I have set you on Purple Mash can you group the different types of food and explain why we need them.




Complete the BBC lesson on sequencing, programming and making computers work at


Should you have any technical issues with websites or missing logins/passwords then we have set up a new email address for you to send these queries which will be monitored by Mr Duffy.
