Spring term 1
We have been in Lockdown since January so some children are working in class and some of you are working hard at home. 
Well done everyone for posting so much work on SEESAW.  

Keep working hard on SPELLSHED and MATHS SHED as we are usually in the top 3 every week!  

It has been great to listen to you read on SEESAW. Remember to keep looking on seesaw for any homework and school messages.
Our topic learning is Volcanoes  and  in science we have continued learning 
about how to recognise and classify different rocks and soils.  
Well done for all your creative art work in our topic so far.

Spring term 2
Get your green fingers out… we will be planting lots of things  that we can eventually eat. Mrs Finnigan is even going to help us grow a loofer !

Our Science learning links with our Edible Garden  Design and Technology topic.

 Marvellous Maps  is our topic and we will learn to about different cities and counties in the UK also we will be able to use all eight compass points on a map.



Autumn Term - Gosh this has been a busy term! 

We have had a super term so far, so many of you have worked hard on your times tables and spellings and lots of you have completed activities on both spelling shed and mathshed. We are so impressed with your reading, so many of you have read lots of books and have really pushed yourselves to read higher level books, well done.

Remember to keep looking on seesaw for any homework and school messages.

We have found out about how Stone Age people lived, looked at Stone Age cave paintings and found out about Stone Age homes. In science we have identified different animals including humans, looked at their diets and can recognise and classify different rocks and soils.


Only a few more weeks until Christmas, lets keep on working hard!

We have lots of fun activities lined up for the next few weeks leading up to our Christmas holidays.

After Christmas - Spring term.

We are going to be finding out about Earthquakes and volcanoes, finding out how and where they are formed. 

In science we will be comparing how things move on different surfaces and finding out about magnets.

Year 3 - Welcome back to our Summer term of home learning! 

I hope you all had a lovely Easter and are ready to get back to some work.  Lots of you have been working really hard producing some fantastic work on Seesaw, I have been so impressed with how you have adapted to working so well at home.

I know it can be quite tricky working at home and there are lots of lovely creative things you might be doing with your family so I don't want anyone worrying, just try your best.  It's important to complete an English and maths activity each day and please keep up with your reading, it's so important. I'll make sure you also have some topic activities to do during the week including some fun activities and ofcourse don't forget to keep active maybe using Gonoodle or Joe Wicks. Remember to use spelling shed and maths shed to keep up with your times tables and spellings.

Gosh it sounds a lot already, please also have fun!

If you have any problems please email admin@burnleyroad.calderdale.sch.uk and I will try to help.

Hello everyone, I have added a suggested timetable and some useful websites you can use with the children whilst you are at home.  There is also some work to start us off on the Egyptians and some maths work.  The children should already have their login for spelling shed and maths shed and are used to accessing these. Twinkl have produced some lovely work for home learning, just go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS to access the year 3 school closure pack. Education Discovery have also provided free access to their learning platform, the code for this is available on our class seesaw page.  

Week 1. Look onto the general Twinkl pages and download Science Animals including Humans, lesson 1. This is a revision lesson all about different food groups and healthy diets, we covered this during the Autumn term. Look through the powerpoint including classifing different animals.

Children, I want you to complete a food diary this week, write down everything you eat and at the end of 7 days draw a food plate like the one on the powerpoint to show how much (or the fraction) of your food was in each of the different groups. Just like the one on the screen.

English We have been looking at different diary entries including the one about Boom-Head the dog.  He wrote a diary about every day during a week.  I want you to do the same, remember he wrote in the 1st person, that means from his point of view and he included some direct speech with inverted commas. You could even illustrate your diary as you go.

Maths I have included a maths sheet above on subtractions to try first then I want you to make yourselves some number cards, 0 - 9, you could use card from your recycling box. Use the cards to make 2 or 3 digit numbers to add or subtract using the formal written method we used last week in maths. For your parents that means carrying and borrowing, yes they are that good! If you completed 3 digit numbers you must use those, some could try 4 digit for a challenge. ( You could use a dice to create the random numbers if you have one.)

Problem solving Complete The Mystery of the Missing Shield, Twinkl school closure home learning pack for year 3. Lots of maths problem solving questions.

Reading Read something you love, you could also try the fiction reading story in the Twinkl pack, The Happy Hunter and Skilful Fisher. Whatever you read answer some questions about the story.

Welcome to Year 3 2019-202



Welcome to class 3 and key stage 2. Our main topic this half term is The Stone Age.  This is another really exciting area of history and we will be linking this with our science topic on rocks and fossils and producing some stone age art. 


Our weekly ukulele lessons have started with Mr Thomas, a specialist music teacher, who is keeping us all entertained and the children full of enthusiasm about learning to play the instrument.

This half term!
