Year 3 Home Learning 21.04.2020

Welcome to Tuesday, Year 3!

The Department of Education have created some great online lessons which you can do alongside my tasks on this website. I have had a look at the year 3 content and I think it is really worth doing.

BBC Bitesize also have daily lessons to support you with your home learning. You can acces these here:


Use this picture of this amazing bird and write a description. Use the following success criteria to help you and be careful with your punctuation.

-Expanded noun phrases (beautiful, bright feathers)

-Alliteration (beautiful, bright beak)

-Interesting verbs to describe how it moves (flutters, hovers, glides)

-Use onomatopoeia words to explain how it sounds (cluck, cawhh, chirp)



Doubling and halving are the inverse of each other. Yesterday you doubled numbers, today I would like you to find half of the numbers below. To help you, you could split them into arrays with two lines then add up one side to see what half was.

Eg.   half of 12 = 6

For when your number gets larger, you can split the number into tens and ones then find half of each part and add your answers together.

e.g    Half of 58 =    split this into 50 and 8

(half of 50 is 25 and half of 8 is 4 = 25 + 4 = 29)    so the answer is 29.


Find half of these numbers-

Challenge 1:  Halve   2      4      6     8      10      12     14

Challenge 2:  Halve   22      24       28     26     46     40      44

Challenge 3:  Halve        54       38        36     52        74      78      92    90



BBC bitesize website has a lot of information and some videos to help support learning on this topic:

The Anglo-Saxons invaded Briatin in 449CE and took Britain from the Romans. They originally came from the areas we now call Germany. Here are some of the reasons they come to Britain:

To fight-

Some Anglo-Saxons were warriors who enjoyed fighting. They thought the Britons were weak and easy to beat without the Romans around.

To farm-

Many Anglo-Saxons came peacefully, to find land to farm. Their homelands in Scandinavia often flooded so it was tough to grow enough food back there.

To make new homes-

Whole families set sail across the sea to live in Britain. They brought tools, weapons and farm animals with them and built villages with new homes.

They were invited-

With Picts and Scots attacking from the north, the Britons invited some Anglo-Saxons to help defend them. But they didn’t leave! They took over.

Here is a map of  the 7 Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms:

Each Kingdom would have a ruler and an army. Most other people would be farmers who grew crops and looked after animals. Unfortunately, the Kingdoms did not get on well and often fought each other.

Create your own version of the map of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms. Choose 6 or 7 different colours and make sure you spell each place name correctly. You can challenge yourself by creating a key in the corner if you don’t want to write the names across the map itself. I have attached an outline to help if you have a printer- try to use page 3.

Our two focus religions for this term are going to be Christianity and Islam.

Research the 5 Pillars of Islam using this slide:  PowerPoint – The Five Pillars of Islam

Then create a poster of the 5 Pillars: you could use this idea of drawing 5 pillars and listing each one and its rules inside.

Take care and stay safe,
