This is the Home Learning page for the half term ending 22nd May. Go to the main class page in the menu above to access the Summer 2 Home Learning information.
Within this home learning guide, you will find a wealth of resources to support your child in their learning at home throughout the next half term. We will also be ‘tweeting’ additional useful resources every day, so please do try and follow us on Twitter to ensure that you can access these valuable resources
Please do not feel in any way pressured to complete all of the work, we are trying to provide as much as people will need, but we also know that the health and well-being of your family is your priority at this time.
Below is a suggested timetable for guidance:
To support your learning in English and keep your writing skills up whilst we are away from school, you now have a weekly writing sheet with suggested work which has been broken into a weekly sequence similar that used in school.
Each week the children should undertake a writing task using the pictures in the ‘Year 3 writing guidance’. This includes daily writing tasks.
To further learning, complete set of English questions from Classroom Secrets home learning resources This time may also include spelling practise using the Spelling Shed. Children can select any Phase 4 list, or choose from the lists I have made available to them (which include the statutory word lists from Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and the current spelling list).
Children are expected to read every day, both independently and with an adult. All children, regardless of reading level, benefit from discussing the text and answering questions based on what they have read.
Across the week Children are also expected to complete a reading task in CGP books (see guidance sheet below for further details).
Children are expected to complete:
One lesson per day from the White Rose Maths Hub.
Children should watch the video first, at their own pace. Then complete the activity. There is also access to the answers. There should be an element of skills focus throughout the week and this is highlighted in the ‘skills focus’ section on the weekly maths plan.
The CGP books are now to be used as support and used only for ‘extra work’. Please refer to the math weekly plans attached for guidance and weekly structure.
Please be aware that it may not be possible for us to mark all work completed when we are back in school, so it is important that children (with your support) have opportunities to check their work.
Children should have at least 60 minutes of exercise per day. This does not have to be continuous and could be done in shorter bursts throughout the day. We recommend you do four sessions per day for 15 minutes each, to reach at least 60 minutes of exercise per day.

These links might give some interesting ideas:
And here are some ideas from Mr Birrane:
Why not take part in our ’10 a day, the East Morton way’ challenge. For inspiration, follow our Twitter feed @EastMortonCEP to see what ’10 a day’ activities some of the staff and children have been doing.
It is expected that children will complete 2—3 hours of learning challenge per week.
Children are to research, find reliable information (or check the information that they have found is accurate) and then create their own scrap book style double page spreads (which include text, pictures and illustrations where possible) which answer the questions in the guidance sheet below.
Our new Learning Challenge for this half term is ‘What did the Romans ever do for us?‘.
Additional e-learning opportunities:
- Music – Log onto Yuma (URL LINK) to access your current unit of work for music
- Purple Mash – There are many activities and learning games available on Purple Mash
- Education City – You could consolidate key learning in Maths, English and Science through the use of the ‘Learn Screens’ for recapping and the games for practise. The ‘Think-its’ provide an additional opportunity for children looking for challenge as they require use of the children’s thinking, reasoning and explaining skills.
You can now find all my weekly videos on my Youtube channel.
