Dear Parents / Carers,
In the event of prolonged school closures, we are providing you with a list of suggested activities and websites to enable your child to continue with their learning.

Children in Year 3 are expected to know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 by the end of the year. However, by the end of Year 4, children are expected to know all their times tables up to 12 x 12. The suggested learning order is as above and then 6, 7, 9, 11 and 12.
If your child is in Year 3 and confident on the year 3 times tables please ask them to start learning the other ones.
The children will need to know these out of order and the corresponding division facts,
For example, 4 x ? =20
We would recommend the following websites to help your child learn their times tables:

We really enjoyed making some soup together. Each child brought in a different vegetable and we shared them in order to make this soup. We all tried some and it was delicious!
Science Rocks and Shadow puppets
In year 3, we love being scientists and carrying out investigations. Today we were investigating different rocks. We also investigated lights and shadows and made our own puppet shadow shows.
Sandwiches and packaging
In our DT lessons we have been looking at what makes a healthy sandwich. We tasted lots of different ingredients before designing and making our own. We also looked at, designed and made our own packaging to put our delicious sandwiches into.
We have been looking at ordinance survey maps to locate physical and human features in the Lake District.
We have been studying Ancient Greece in our History lessons. As such, the children have made their own ancient greek masks in Art, which are for either a comedy or tragedy play.
The children really enjoyed making faces of different characters during their forest school lesson.
As part of our English topic on instructions, the children followed some instructions to build a variety of different paper aeroplanes. We then went outside to see whose went the furthest.
The children had a fabulous afternoon completing the colour run. They also raised lots of money for charity too!
We created cavemen paintings by turning our classroom into caves and using only a small light.
As part of our Stone Age topic, we looked at Stonehenge. The children found different ways of recreating this wonder of the world.
World Book Day
To celebrate world book day, the children dressed up as their favourite characters. We completed lots of activities to celebrate the books that we love.
