Welcome to Y3
You may want to take some time over the next 2 weeks to look back and complete any work that has not yet been completed. I have left week 2 activities below to help with that – I have also added more activities on mymaths for children to work through as they wish.
I have suggested some Easter activities below that you might want to do over the course of the holidays:
The following powerpoint has some lovely reflective activities that you could do as a family.
Over the Easter holidays, why don’t you try some of these activities?
Some museums and heritage organisations around the country have created some exciting activities that children can do at home:
A 30 day challenge to get those creative juices flowing!
Follow the link below to download an Easter holiday bingo activity sheet with some fun activities to try.
Don’t forget, there are still many daily resources available for children by various celebrities like David Walliams, Carol Vorderman etc. Details of some of these are on the link below:
Maths Week 2

Please work through week 2 of the Maths Mastery below. The parents guidance is also attached.
Further Maths activities can be found here (if required):
English Week 2
The school have purchased a KS2 Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling CGP question book for each child.
This week I would like the children to complete page 12&13 ‘Clauses’ page 14 ‘Phrases’ pages 15 ‘Noun phrases’ and pages 16&17 ‘Mixed sentence practice.
The books provide an answer section to support parents. Children are NOT to rush through the book.
Please work through the English Mastery week 2.
Please continue to read with your child a minimum of 3x per week. You can further support your child with their reading through:
Predicting – What do they think this text is about?
Clarify – What new vocabulary have they experienced? Meaning?
Question – What would they still like to know?
Summary – In their words, what is the text about?
I have included in the home learning pack 4 sets of weekly spellings – please complete 1 sheet this week. I have also included a couple of reading comprehension exercises. Please can children complete one of those this week. Further reading comprehension work can be found here: https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/modules/e2_comprehension_lks2/index.html?source=subject–KS2–Resource%20types

Wider Curriculum Week 2
You will need the username: student25850 and the password: family
Look through the videos and activities.
Physical activity is extremely important. Joe Wicks has some brilliant home work outs for children and adults alike to complete at home to ensure we’re fighting fit and healthy. He is going to run a PE workout for children in the UK at 9am Monday to Fridays on his youtube channel.
With children facing time in isolation, it is important that they work through the online safetfy module to keep them safe when accessing the internet.
Please follow the link below for a video of me reading a story for the children – I will aim to upload these every few days so keep checking!
In addition to this: your child might want to keep a daily diary, to share with us when we go back to school. Perhaps they will want to create a dance to their favourite song and email it to me so I can pop it on here for their classmates to see. Maybe they would like to keep a daily Vlog. They may want to write an exciting fantasy story, including illustrations. Let them be as creative as they wish – perhaps put time aside each day for them to do creative work of their own choosing. It does not have to be limited to the work set by me weekly. I have told my class that I will continue to give progress points – please email me at the above email address and send me photos of your child’s work, or of your child completing work, I will upload them to the page regularly.
Please do feel free to email me with any questions, concerns, requests, more work etc.
Here’s what some members class 3 have been up to this week – please continue to send your photos to Mrs Floyd at Y3@hfcps.co.uk
