We hope you are all keeping safe and well during this time. This page will be updated daily during our distance learning time in the summer term and we will have lots of ideas for different things for you all to do at home. 

We now have an email address which your grown ups can contact. We are checking this regularly and would love to see what you are all up to! Please send us photos and videos so we can share them in a weekly post on this page.

Summer Term

Welcome back, we hope you have all had a lovely break and enjoyed the fantastic weather we have had! As we move into the summer term, we will set activities and work here daily. We will also set the spellings that should be learned over the half term as well as weekly spelling patterns. If possible, spend some time each day reading, practising spellings and working on times tables (3, 4 and 8x).


We understand that many parents are working from home, please do not feel any pressure to complete these tasks these are here to support you. Where possible, we will also include ideas that children can work on independently or with a small amount of input. If children do manage to complete these activities, we would love to see pictures or videos of this on our year group email.


Stay safe,


Mrs Flowdy and Mr Rippon

Happy Half Term


As it is half-term, we want you to enjoy yourselves this week and make the most of this wonderful weather.  If you want a challenge we have got a list of life skills that you can try to develop, some you may find some easy and some will be hard but if you can try and learn an additional life skills this week that would be amazing. These skills may even make your life easier parents, so they are certainly worthwhile.

w/c Monday 18th May


Hello, this is our final week before the half term holiday. We are so proud of all of the hard work you are doing and love seeing the photos to see what you are all up to. 


This week the White Rose Maths is repeating some of the fractions work that was carried out earlier on in home learning. Fractions is always very tricky topic with some difficult concepts so it might be good to go over this area again.  We will put the worksheets and video links daily as usual. If you remember the content and want to try something slightly different, BBC Bitesize will have work on fractions this week. Alternatively, if you feel secure with this there are some extra sheets looking at calculation skills,  there are links in the plan to videos. These resources will move down the page as the week progresses so as not to confuse those looking for the usual daily sheets.  


This week's English will be taken from Oak National Academy. Over the week children will build on their skills before writing a character description on Friday. We haven't seen a lot of writing, we would love to see some of your character descriptions!

Hello Year 3. We hope everyone is well and that you all enjoyed the sunshine that we had last week! Here are a few extra ideas for you to try. The most important things that you can do for home learning is to keep reading and practising your times tables. You should know your 2, 5 and 10x tables and this year we have worked on our 3, 4 and 8x times tables. Don’t forget to go onto Rockstars to practise or try some of the other games or websites that are on the school page.

White Rose have a daily maths video and worksheet. Week 1 starts with fractions, we have not covered some of these ideas yet in class so don’t worry if it doesn’t seem familiar but the videos are very good.  There are some great ideas to work through on the question sheets too if you can.

Here are some additional ideas but remember to have fun!

  • Write a newspaper report (there are some lovely templates that you can use on Purple Mash- logins were sent in the home learning packs.)
  • If you have completed the first video about unit and non-unit fractions why not try to make some fractions around the house?  For example if you have Lego, can you make 1/4 of a group of bricks red? Or use pencils, can you make 2/3 of the pencils blue?
  • Design your perfect playground. Think about all of the things that you might like to have there.
  • Check MyMaths as there is some extra work added.
  • Make a spring picture. What different things can you see out of your window now we are in spring?
