Activities in Year 3

Year 3 


Homework expectations:

Homework set: Thursday

Homework due: Tuesday

We are focusing on ensuring each child reads x3 per week – also reading to an adult 1:1 in class – along with structured guided reading/comprehension tasks.   Your child will also receive a set of spellings each week – please practice writing these in a sentence also in order to gauge understanding of the meaning of each word, they can do this in their grey homework book.. Each child should log onto Times Tables Rock stars too.




Spring Term Topic:

As part of our developing understanding of why Wirral is a special place to live – we will be exploring the impact that the Roman’s invasion had to Britain and the areas surrounding the Wirral – especially Chester.

Autumn Term Topic:

As part of our Science topic on Rocks, we will be exploring the development of the study of rocks, notable fossils by exploring the life of Mary Anning.

Below is a link that will let  you explore Stonehenge – the children have loved investigating this magnificent monument, exploring different theories about why and how it was built. 

Hopefully we will finish our individual cave art canvas pieces soon. The children have worked on this over several weeks, researching cave art, it’s meaning and its symbolism. They have practiced in their sketch books and created a sand covered canvas to add their final design to – we will add these to Seesaw soon! 

I have high expectations for each and every child in my class – I am so excited to be a part of their learning journey in Pensby Primary School again!

Thank you
