Year 3

Week 3

It has been another busy week in Year 3!


In Maths this week, we have been looking at number lines. Our key word was ‘intervals’. We thought of an action to represent it. See if we can show you what intervals are.


In Science, we started learning about soil. We will look more at different types of soil next week. Watch this video to find out more about soil.


In History, we have been using historical vocabulary when describing time. See if we can tell you how long a decade, a century and a millennia are.


I have forgotten to send home the spelling sheets so I will send these out on Monday - sorry! The links to the revision spellings and Year 3 spellings are below. Any child in a phonics group will have their spellings already given to them by their phonics teacher.


Week 2


This week, we were learning about grid references in Geography. We watched this video to find out how it works.


In History, we learned about Howard Carter's famous discovery of Tutankhamun. Follow this link to find the video we watched.


In English, we learned that conjunctions are words that join ideas. See if we can show you our action for junctions. Challenge - Ask us to name three different conjunctions.


All children now have TTRockstars logins stuck in their reading records. 


Please see below for the links to the spelling homework.
