Class 3

Welcome to Team 3!


Miss Sleath           Mr Bevan                      Mrs Franklin

Hello Team 3! In order to support those who are learning at home at the moment, we will be uploading work for you to do here. This will be uploaded by the start of the normal school day. Please continue to be kind to yourself, your friends and your families and please do talk to one another about how you are feeling.

Home School Learning

Welcome back to the second part of the summer term.

We hope you had a lovely half term holiday and managed to relax and do some lovely things in and around you homes.

It will be a bit different (at least for a while) but there’s loads of great learning to be getting on with.

Remember to send us pictures of the work and activities you have been doing (it doesn’t have to be school based) so that we can share them on Class Dojo.



This term we will change topic and learn about the Olympics.  We will spend 2 weeks thinking about a country and learning about where it is and important issues to do with that country before moving onto the next.

The first 2 weeks will be all about Greece.  This is the place where the first Olympics were held.  The Olympic games were also held in Greece in 2004.  We will then learn about the 2008 Olympics in Beijing in China, before thinking about the 2012 London Olympics and then finishing the term with the Rio Olympics in 2016 which were in Brazil.


Return to school

We are very excited to see some of you in school next week and some of you the following week. I have uploaded a PowerPoint to help you understand what it will be like when you come back to school. Follow this link to find it

For those of you who will be at home, we will still be uploading work as usual for the last 2 weeks of term 🙂

Tuesday 14th

Morning everyone.  Sorry, i forgot to do this – Miss Sleath has been  doing it and I just forgot.

For Today, please have a look at the English, Story Time, Maths, Topic and spellings.

Monday 13th

Hello Team 3 🙂 I hope you have all had a great weekend and that you are happy and healthy.

For today, please have a look at the English, Story time, Maths, Science and Spellings folders

Look out for links to some exciting Maths and English games under the ‘English work’ and ‘Maths work’ headings. Challenge yourself with these games if you would like to 🙂


English work

In English, we will be following a two week cycle. The first week will focus on grammar and punctuation and finish with a reading comprehension. The second week will have a writing focus and end with a piece of writing. Remember to take pride in the presentation of your work. Everything you need to complete your English work can be found in the folder below. New activities will be uploaded into the folder each day.

Try this incredible Crystal Explorers game to test out your English knowledge:

Story Time

Here is Murder on the Midnight Plane – can you work out the answers to the daily clues?

Here is the fourth part of The Snow Queen. What do we learn about Gerda in this chapter? What do you think will happen next? I will post the next chapter later this week.


Maths Work

For maths this week you will find all of your work in the folder below.  For your maths, I would like you all to be watching the video and then having a go at the worksheets.

There is a Word document with all of the links for videos explaining the learing for each day for WTS and EXS maths.

You have a new maths mystery challenge! This week is The Mystery of the Missing Sacks on Sports Day! See if you can work out each clue.



Topic work – Brazil


Science work

For Science this week we will be learning a little about the water cycle and the nutrient cycle in a tropical rainforest.

There a couple of fun experiments that you can do too.

Like our last science topic, I have added a knowledge organiser here for you to have a look at and to help you with your science work about animals including humans.

This week we are learning all about how our muscles help us to move. I have an added a ‘Archived Science’ folder for previous Science work, should you wish to make use of.

Spellings work

Please make sure that your child can read the spellings in the Years 1 and 2 list and then spell them all, before moving onto reading all of the Years 3 and 4 list and then spelling them.


French work

Here is plenty of French for this term. There are lots of words, songs and other activities.  If you can do at least 30 minutes a week that would be amazing. There are now 2 PowerPoints in this link.



Here are some resources you might find useful to have a look at at your own pace. You might want to use them once, come back to them more than once or not use them at all… whatever works for you 🙂 You might want an adult to guide you through some of them.

Here is a link to some brilliant resources from the Red Cross website. A set of free and engaging online resources for children and young people to do at home during the coronavirus lockdown which explore and promote the value of kindness. Red Cross will be regularly publishing new resources for teachers, parents or learners themselves.

Time to make some MUSIC!  The music service has extended the deadline for their Bathethandaza project.  Follow the link it you would like to be involved in the video!

We get point for our school every time someone does a challenge!

Olympics resources

Follow this link for lots of resoures and activities linked to our topic work about the Olympics! There is a tick box on the right hand side to find appropriate resources for your age group.

Last term we used a great coding program called Rodocodo. The children have their own log ins and can access it from home. It’s great fun and well worth a look. You can find it at …

You can access it on computer, tablet (iPad or Android), iPhone, Android phone, and even iPod Touch.  The children can continue from where they left off at school.


real PE at home – online learning resources

real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity.
