Just In Case!

In case of school closure here are some helpful links for activities:


White Rose Maths are planning free resources to aid children's learning at home. 


Create an account for children to access for FREE games and learning packs. 


Topmarks have lots of resources including things in English, maths and topics.


Primary Resources also have a variety of resources.

Continue to practise cursive script with the entry stroke from the line. Here are some guidelines (more can be found on Twinkl).





We have been focusing on developing our understanding of the text through literal and inferential questions. 

Children are encouraged to gather all the clues to answer the questions fully. Examples can be found on Twinkl and an inference worksheet is attached below but any text can be used. 


A challenging text: /kgfl/primary/olspfederation/arenas/website/web/comprehension4.docx


Attached are some ideas for creative writing and uplevelling sentences. 






Times tables

Keep on practising times tables at home with a focus on 3s, 4s and 8s. 

It is useful to watch times table songs on Youtube and play times table games. The children enjoy playing times table bingo in class and this could be done at home.

Don't forget about the inverse facts (division). 


Playing shops is fun but it also helps with calculation and handling money in a safe environment. 


Keep practising calculations such as addition, subtraction and multiplication 2 digit by 1 digit using the column method. 



Practise representing numbers and calculations using arrays, drawing place value counters and base ten using place value grids to consolidate learning of exchanging tens or hundreds (previously called borrowing). 

Ordering and sequencing of numbers is also helpful activity to practise. 

Time and measure are also useful to regularly visit. 

A useful maths learning pack can be found on Twinkl - Year 3 School Closure Home Learning Resource Pack (FREE to download) - Spring themed maths activity booklet. In this pack there are also times table games. 

Science and Topic

In science we have been learning about animals including humans and plants. Here are some ideas of activities to do at home. Links are attached below or you can visit Twinkl - Year 3 School Closure Home Learning Resource Pack (FREE to download). 






Website for science experiments (FREE) some of which can be done at home.  https://sciencebob.com/about-bob/

History - we have started learning about the Industrial Revolution and looking at the natural resources of our region. Why our region led the world in the wool trade and how new inventions transformed the cottage industries into the mills and factories. 

Art - close observational drawing is a good skill to practise and remember to focus on the item whilst making marks on the paper. Using the nip and edge of the pencil to sketch focus on light and shade. 

R.E - we have been looking at Jesus' miracles and exploring the earthly meaning of His parables. Durning Lent we have been focusing on reconciliation and renewing our friendship with God. A nice activity would be to write reflections or prayer responding to any of the stations of the cross.
