Year 3 - Ghana and Botswana

Welcome to Year 3!

Mrs Tapscott and Miss Miller are delighted to welcome you to Year 3 where learning is challenging, fun and exciting. We are always around to support both you as parents and the children, and if you need anything then don't hesitate to pop in and speak to one of us. We are supported by Miss Crichton and Mr Parry, who work closely with us supporting children in class and providing small group support in the afternoons.

Home Learning W/C 30th March


English / Topic: get ready to put your archaeologist hats on to create an informative piece of work about one of these British prehistoric sites: Stonehenge, Avebury or Skara Brae.

Think about what the reader (your parents and teachers!) might want to know about this site: Where is it? How old is it? Who might have lived there? What was its use? How was it built? What evidence has been found there that helps us to understand prehistoric times? 

Helpful websites:

You could create a poster or a leaflet (either on paper or on your computer), or a PowerPoint presentation showing everything you can find out about your chosen site. Remember not to copy information straight from the source, but turn it into your own words! You should use paragraphing or information boxes, images (maybe two or three), a range of conjunctions and correct spelling and punctuation. Don't rush - you have got until Friday 3rd April to get this done!

When you have finished this piece of work, send a copy or a photo of it to your teacher either at their email address or on Seesaw - we can't wait to see the finished pieces! 

Reading: continue to read 5 times a week to an adult - why not send us a video or photo of you reading? Or share your favourite book or poem with us via Seesaw? There will also be reading 2Dos set on Purple Mash linked to chapter 2 of Annie and the Third Leaf. 

Spelling: complete your daily practice for T4W6 spellings as you would in class.


Morning maths - complete this for T4W6 as you would in class.

Doodle Maths - who can continue their streak and stay in the Green Zone? This week's scores on the doors are:       Ghana - 84% (1st in OPJS)

 Botswana - 62% (5th in OPJS)

Purple Mash - look out for any 2Dos that may be set during the week.

In addition to the above, you can follow the link below to work on some problem solving tasks, recording any work you do in your pink Home Learning Journal!

Additional activities:

Get outside whenever you can - do some gardening, play games in the garden, lie on the grass and stare at the clouds, fresh air and nature are good for the soul! You could try one of the many online exercise classes your parents will be able to access e.g. Joe Wicks at 9am or Oti Mabuse's dance classes! Be creative - do some art, bake, build an obstacle course, watch a West End musical online, tour an art gallery or zoo on the other side of the world, or just snuggle up on the sofa for a cuddle! Most importantly, keep in touch - we are missing you all very much!
