Year 3 Home Learning 20.03.2020

Good morning year 3,

As we will be off for the foreseeable future, please refer to these pages every day. I will post them in the morning for you to do throughout the day but please don’t worry if you get behind or send me them in a different order. I have also allocated you ‘ToDos’ on purple mash linking to English, maths, Science and Geography. There is also a book on there which we can all look at and work through a chapter at a time. If you need your log ons, email me as I have copies.

The office have sent out a text with my correct email address on. If you send me work, I will mark it and give you some recommendations for next steps. I can also differentiate work if your child is finding the tasks I set too challenging.

Here is a timetable for the weeks you are off to help structure your day and give you an idea of how long you should be spending on each lesson.

homeschool timetable


Use the picture and success criteria to write a setting description about the shanty town from our story The Pied Piper. Aim for about half a page of writing taking care with your hand writing.


-adjectives and expanded noun phrases    (eg. There were broke, dirty huts filled with starving children.)

-similes to compare two things  ( eg. The floor was as dirty as a pig sty.)

-alliteration  (e.g Rugged rats roamed the round huts.)

-power of three ( eg. Stinking bins, rat droppings and abandoned rubbish littered the streets.)

-senses  (eg. A strong smell of rotting rubbish fills the air.)


Fun activity: Be completely silent for 30 minutes and write about the experience. What did you hear? What did you think about? How did you feel at the beginning/ middle/ end?



Continue with bus stop method, try to challenge yourself and do some from each challenge to see what your understanding is. This is a lovely video from a child’s point of view explaining it with visual counters.

Challenge 1 (no carrying)

84 ÷ 4=        93 ÷ 3=      86÷2=     99÷ 3=     60÷3=   28÷2=     46÷2=

Challenge 2 (no remainders but you have to carry)

95÷5=       75÷3=      92÷4=     38÷ 2=    80÷5=       72÷6=       48÷3=

Challenge 3 (remainders)

134÷5=   299÷3 =  722÷4=   821÷6=    938÷4=    736÷6=     292÷3=     190÷4=

Challenge 4 – create your own calculations. These could be with 3, 4 or 5 digit numbers inside the ‘bus’.


Fun activity: Collect leaves from 10 diferent (non-harmful) plants. Sort them into size, colour and texture. What other ways could you sort them?


Think about your local area by looking out from a window in your home and recording which features you can see. Make a tally chart for the following features… remember when you get to 5 it should be recorded like . The numbers in the box below are based on what I can see out of my living room window.

What? Tally Total
Trees // 22
Bushes /// 18
Cars 10
Houses/ flats // 7
Roads / 1
Lamp posts / 6
Services (eg. shops) / 1

Science: Look at two ingredients labels from your food. Compare how much protein/ fat/ sugar and carbohydrates they have in then compare the calorie content. Which item is healthier? Why?


Take care and stay safe!
