Hello Year 3!

These weeks really are going by quickly and we're getting very close to our summer holidays now!

Hopefully you will have heard the news that I will be teaching you again next year in Year 4 along with Mrs Bice and Mrs Andrews and I hope you are just as excited as I am!!! We are having our transition days on Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd July where we will get to see each other again after what will have been, unbelievably, over 4 months apart!

Our focus this week is on Wimbledon - Which I love and am very sad to be missing at the moment (although i'm not sure how much would be getting played given our weather at the moment!!)

Make sure you read the instructions carefully and enjoy learning about one of Britains famous old sporting events.

I hope you're all doing well and keeping safe and I am looking forward to seeing you all again in a couple of weeks time!

Mr Dolby :)

Home Learning


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, lots of children are unable to come to school due to government regulations on self isolation. 


To ensure children are still able to access work from home, we will be putting up work for the children to complete each day in their home learning books that were sent home. 


Each day, the children will be set an English task and a Maths task. A lot of these worksheets are differentiated by stars with 1 star being the easiest and 3 stars being the most difficult! The children will be used to being able to choose a challenge with our Red, Amber and Green challenges at school and it will be up to them as to what difficulty they would like to attempt.


I will also set a Topic 'project' for the children to complete each week which will require them to research a topic and then produce their own work. This project doesn't have to be limited to the workbook but could include pictures, drawings or any other work that the children have done.


As well as these worksheets, we would still like the children to be reading at least 5 times a week and practising their times tables. You can either practise your times tables on Times Tables Rock Stars or download one of the Times Tables sheets from the documents below. I have attached a Times Tables Games sheet too which will give you some ideas for how the children can practice their times tables in a more fun and interactive way!


If you are not able to print out these worksheets, please try your best to copy down the questions into your workbook and answer them from there.


All of the worksheets have answers attached which can be used to mark and check your work when you have finished!


Stay safe and enjoy your learning!
