Home Learning Y3 – School Closure

Out of School LearningImage result for home Learning

Year 3

Dear parents & carers of a wonderful Y3 child,

As you are aware, Sheffield schools will be closed for a short period due to the Coronavirus (COVID- 19). We want to minimise the impact this will have on your child’s learning so we have put together this bank of ideas to ensure your child will continue learning and consolidating their understanding whilst being away from school. In addition, we would ask that you access the activities that have been set here on a daily basis by Mrs Scarpello & Mrs Keen (Mon-Fri during normal school days).

Set Activities: 

Good morning Y3

Friday 27th March

Reading – Continue to read 3 times a week.


Look at the following numbers. Can you partition them into hundreds, tens and ones?






Now can you order them from largest to smallest?




Write 5 sentences – make them as silly as you want, but they must all include a conjunction. Challenge – a subordinating conjunction.

Underline the conjunction you have used,

For fun –  Make an Easter card. Can you recycle any materials? Use egg boxes to make 3D flowers?


Some activities that your children could be doing:

  • TT Rockstars and Prodigy (Logins are in their reading record)
  • Practice previously learnt spellings and put each into a sentence
  • Write a non-chronological report on a subject of your choice
  • Write a news report on something relevant or something made up
  • Read Fables, Just so stories & Poems, then write your own.
  • Practice all the year 3 methods of calculation (See TASS website)
  • Research and learn more about skeletons, bones, muscles and organs of the body.
  • Continue to read about the Romans and collect new and interesting facts.
  • Practice greeting people in French
  • Look at different artists who use different media to show images/figures such as Julian Opie, Pete Mckee and Antony Gormley.
  • Design, make, test and evaluate a new catapult.
  • Learn more about democracy and diversity in Britain.
  • Create your own five part story
  • Make your own game and write instructions for how to play it
  • Look at activities on Twinkl as they are offering one month free for pupils of schools that have closed
  • Look on our school website> Parents> Helping your Child with homework – for a list of useful websites

There was no way the teacher could have been told everything, but within just a couple of weeks we felt that she had gained an excellent understanding of our child. We couldn’t be happier with the support our child has been given during her first term at TASS! Thank you!
