Who's Who

Mr Battersby- Class Teacher
Miss Varley - Learning Support Assistant



This is where you will find set learning activities for children during the school closure. 

The learning is set out week by week from Wednesday to Wednesday to ensure that there is a range of new activities to keep children engaged in their learning at home. 


For each week, there are set learning activities linked to:

  • Spelling shed which mirrors learning in the classroom
  • Maths learning from the classroom and mathletics
  • Reading challenges 
  • Science activities
  • There is also a wider curriculum grid with project based activities that link to our current theme of the Romans.


All learning that is completed can be done so in the 'Home Learning' book (green exercise book) that children will be bringing home this week. Spelling shed and mathletics will all be monitored on line. 


On top of these set activities, there is a range of home learning tasks for reading, writing and SPaG. These are in PowerPoints and give short tasks in each of the above areas. These are for children who would like additional learning suggestions for at home. 


I would like to take this opportunity to say how proud I am of how hard the children in Year 3 have worked over the year and that I’m sure that they will continue to work had during this period. 


Dear Year 3,


I hope you are all well and not causing to much trouble for your big people!  I just wanted to say how lovely it has been to see such amazing work being achieved and thank you for sending it in to school.  I have really enjoyed seeing it (even if there are missing CAPITAL LETTERS & FULL STOPS!).  Everyone keep working hard and stay safe - even you Chelsea fans.

In year 3 we have an exciting opportunity to develop of times tables skills.  We have signed up to an app called, 'Times Tables Rock Stars'.   This is a fun and engaging way to really polish up our multiplication skills as well as having healthy competition with their friends.


It is an easily downloadable app, available from all app stores.  The children have their login details glued in to the front of their Reading records.


Finally, enjoy!
