Summer Term Activities 

Hello Year 3! Sorry we can't be with you in school today, we hope you are having a nice sunny day at home. 


In Art today, we would have been finishing our David Hockney style swimming pool paintings. If you would like to draw and paint a swimming pool, we would love to see your finished paintings! Remember to think about shades of blue for shadows and patterns to show light reflecting. You can also add a splash using any materials you have at home, such as cotton wool or even leaves from outside. 


Below you will find some Maths and English activities and a Design Your Own Flower activity sheet. Think about the different parts of a flowering plant and what they need to attract insects for pollination!


You could also have a go at making your own Water Cycle Experiment:


Remember you can always send us photos of your activities!

Weekly Home Learning Information

Please ensure your child is reading at least 5 times a week. 


Last week we tested the children on the KS1 Common Exception Word spellings, your child should bring home a sheet this week with the words they spelled correctly highlighted. Please help your child to learn all of these spellings.

Once they are secure with these words they will bring home some new words from the Year 3 and 4 spelling list. We have broken this list down into blocks of spellings with similar sounds where possible. We will be testing children on their spellings each half term.


The children should be carrying out maths home learning tasks every week; the minimum is times table learning. We would encourage them to use Times Table Rock Stars as it is timed and they are likely to be sitting a timed Times Table Test in Year 4 or you can use any other methods. We will be testing times tables periodically in school too. The age related expectation is that children will know their 2x, 5x and 10 x tables by the end of Year 2 and that in Year 3 they will learn their 3x, 4x and 8 x tables. They also need to know the related division facts.

We have also allocated some tasks to support their school learning on Mathletics.


Your children will have their logins for Mathletics and TTRS in their reading diaries, if you have any issues with logging in to either, please contact Mrs Cranko on as she can look into it.


We know all children learn differently, if you have any questions about the spellings or maths, please email the class email address.


Thanks for all your help and support with your child(ren)’s learning.

Half Term Creative Activity Suggestion

Last week the children in Year 3 enjoyed making models of stone circles (inspired by Stonehenge) in clay.


If they are at a loose end over half term, we have suggested they try making stone circles from other materials.


Material suggestions include using biscuits (rectangular ones such as Custard Creams or Bourbons),  cheese puff crisps (like 'Wotsits'), Lego, building bricks or empty boxes.


If your child(ren) create something they would like to share with us, please email us pictures on or

Below are the wonderful clay stone circles year 3 made at school.
