Year 3 Home Learning 23.03.2020

Good Morning Year 3,

Welcome to our first full week of online learning. I have already had a few emails from parents with work which is great and I will endeavour to mark work sent to me on the day between 9am and 4pm.

Remember, I have assigned you tasks on purple mash for the week and there are also the times tables assigned to you on Times Table Rock Stars.



Write a letter from the Mayor of Hamlin to the Pied Piper apologising for not paying him and asking for the town’s children back. Try to use the following features in it:

-Date and address (you can make this up)



-Conjunctions (because, so, however, and, but, if, when)

-Sign off   (Yours sincerely)


Fun activity: Make stick puppets for your favourite story and act it out to a teddy or family member.

Use your learning on finding fractions of amounts to draw bar models to solve these calculations. Remember, the number of parts the whole has been split into is what you are dividing it by.

eg. 3 parts means divide by 3.      1/3 of 12= 4





Challenge 1

1/3 of 30          1/3 of 15         1/3 of 33        1/3  of 27       1/5 of 25       1/5 of 60    1/5 of 15

Challenge 2

1/4  of 20        1/4 of 28         1/4 of 40        1/6 of 30      1/6 of 66       1/6 of 48     1/6 of 120

Challenge 3 (you will need to find multiple parts- look at the numerator carefully. Use bus stop to solve these if you need to)

2/3 of 360       3/4 of  124        3/4 of 256          3/5 of 625         3/5 of 255           3/5 of 550


Fun activity: Measure the length of your bed using 5 non-standard units, for example: hands, sticks, pennies, pasta pieces.

Research an urban landmark in London and use the information to answer the following:

When was it made?

Why was it made?

How tall is it?

How many people visit it each day?  (This might be hard to find out)

What is the nearest tube station?

Examples of landmarks are Tower Bridge, Westminster Cathedral, the Shard.



Draw around your foot on a piece of paper and feel the bones and joints along it. Try to draw these then compare it to the diagram below.  Don’t worry too much about learning the names, your learning should focus on the shapes of the bones and where they join.

Keep up the hard work and stay safe!
