Good Morning, Year 3!


I will be setting no work today as it is the last day of term!


As I said at the beginning of the week, it has been a pleasure teaching you and I am just sad it was only for a short time. I wish you all the best of luck with next year and the years after that. Remember, everyone will be feeling a little bit anxious at the start of the year but we do every year, and look how smoothly it ends up going! Your confidence will be stronger than ever when you are back with your friends and new teacher. Take care and enjoy the Summer 🙂

Good Morning, Year 3!


As well as learning new information and skills, you all worked really hard on individual targets. Some of you wanted to improve your handwriting or spelling, some of you found maths tricky and wanted to boost your confidence.

Today’s task is to think about self improvement for next year and set yourself three goals which you want to achieve by the end of year 4.

For example: I want to earn my pen license by improving my cursive writing.

When you go to year 4, you will be taught by Miss Daglish 🙂

I want you to think about 3 questions to ask her when you start in September to get to know her as a person.

For example: What is you favourite animal? How do you spend your weekends?


For the second part of this task, I want you to think of 3 questions about year 4 in general.

For example: Will be go on a trip? What is our first theme? Will we still learn French?

Keep hold of you 6 questions and take them with you in September.

Good Morning, Year 3!

As most of you have not been able to come back to school, I want to spend today’s task thinking about the other people in our class and remembering the friends that we have.

Choose one person in the class who you think is kind, caring and makes you laugh… these are all elements we want from a friend.  Draw a portrait of that person then write a caption about why they are important to you and how they make you feel valued.

Good Morning, Year 3!


This week we are going to think about transitioning into year 4 and reflecting on this strange year we have had.

I want to start with a little video of myself to say goodbye:



Your task today:

Write down three things you have really enjoyed about year 3. Make the Page you write these on really colourful and bright with different symbols and drawings on- maybe write in coloured pens. We want to end the year on a positive note and this will be a visual reminder of things you have enjoyed.

Take care and stay safe!

Good Morning, Year 3!



Here is a paragraph with some information about gargoyles, taken from an information pack.

Gargoyles can be tricky creatures. They play tricks on their owners, make lots of mess and enjoy causing havoc wherever they go. If you have more than one gargoyle then they will often work together to stir up trouble. Each gargoyle has a unique ability: some are wonderful painters; some are incredibly fast at running around; some can sing loudly. There is no way to tame your gargoyle however, being nice to it might make a gargoyle listen to an instruction from its owner once or twice.

Which sub-heading is the best fit for this paragraph?

A:  Gargoyle behaviour

B: How to tame a gargoyle

C: Gargoyle’s diet



Well done for all of your hard work on reading scales this week. Today, I want you to use some problems solving skills and answer these two questions.

  • Sarah’s 1L bucket has a hole in it. She needs exactly 1L to water the plants. She has a 250ml measuring jug. How can she use this? 
  • True or false? The taller a container is, the more liquid there is. Explain why you agree or disagree.


Take care and stay safe!
