Please click on the pictures below to see the topic web and home learning grid.

Also, please see below for the latest updates during our school closure.


Home Learning - Iria and Alba

Iria and Alba have been busy at home! They have been completing maths task using White Rose Maths. They have also been busy in the kitchen baking delicious cupcakes. They followed the recipe and measured and weighed all the ingredients themselves. I love the brilliant decorations on top!

Great work, girls!



Home Learning - Lofoten

Lofoten has been busy at home planting different seeds (tomatoes, carrots, parsnips, little ladybird poppies and cornflowes). She has been reading 'Wind in the Willows' and has created a painting based on chapters 1 and 2. She's also collected blossom and flowers which she then tied in a bunch (like Stone Age people would have done). And finally, she has been making parsnip soup too.

Great learning, Lofoten. Keep it up!

Hello Y3 (children & parents)!

It's Mr P here. I hope you are safe and well. I thought I would just say a little hello and to give you a few ideas for things to do at home over the next week. I know you are probably all spending lots of time indoors and at home but there is so much you can all do! From painting and craft, den building and construction, to baking and cooking, there is so much to do to fill your time. And remember, it is not just you children who are learning. I am also learning new things, like how to make wild garlic pesto and homemade pasta. 

Anyway, I will try to post some bits each week underneath my message. Please feel free to email me any of your home activities - this could be pictures, writing or just an email to say what you've been doing. If you would like me to put any pictures on our web page then please say so in the email. 

Once again, I hope you are all ok. Remember to be kind and helpful to your parents/carers at home. Read the kindness quote below. See if you can be a detective and figure out what Plato (the person who said it) means. 

"Kindness  is more than just deeds. It is an attitude. An expression. A look. A touch. It is anything that lifts another person." (Plato)

Keep your eyes peeled and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Mr P

Y3 maths booklet 26th March


Write a description of the island in 'The Wild Robot'.

Remember to include the following details:

A rocky coastline, sandy beaches in the south, a forest, a river, mountains, a waterfall, the animals.

Use my sentence below to get started.

Although the island was small, it was interesting. There were so many things for Roz to explore. At the southern end of the island, lay long stretches of soft white sand...

Art - Sketching

With the early release of Frozen 2, I saw this video online of an animator drawing Sven. Why not have a go at watching how he drew the character and then have a go yourself. Remember, when you sketch, use your pencil lightly. Then when you have your basic shapes, you can refine them.

Click on the picture of Sven to watch the tutorial:

PE/ Exercise

 It's important to keep your body active and not just your mind. Joe Wicks is doing a morning workout each morning at 9am, live on Youtube. If you can't do it at 9am, then they will stay there to do another time. But, give them a go - I have!

Extract from The Wild Robot (Peter Brown):

'Roz looked down and surveyed the island. Starting from the sandy southern point, the island grew wider and greener and hillier until it finally jutted up into the rocky cone of the mountain. In some places the mountain fell away, leaving sheer cliffs. A waterfall rushed off one cliff and fed a river that wound its way through a great meadow in the center of the island. The river flowed past wildflowers and ponds and boulders and then disappeared into the forest.' 

Use the extract to make a list of the following:

  • adjectives
  • verbs
  • nouns
