Stanhope Primary School



We have put together some links to online resources that can support children learning at home.


Parents- We would ask that Parents consider how to keep children safe when they are online. NSPCC has some fantasic guidance avaliable here:  We would recommend setting parental controls on any devices and keep an eye on your child's history. 


Children- just a reminder if you ever see anything that makes you uncomfortable please speak to an adult. This website is brilliant for learning about how to keep yourself safe - there are even games!


Reading for pleasure

In order to support your child develop a love of reading we have created a list of suggested high quality texts that are suitable for year 3. We hope these are helpful for you!



Audible are now offering children free audio books whilst schools are closed.



Staying active is really important, but harder if your having to try and stay away from others here are some websites that might help.

Twinkl currently have an offer for all parents to be able to access their resources:


Step 1: Go to

Step 2: Enter the code CVDTWINKLHELPS

If you want to read the Bible story then it is in the PDF below.

Monday - Geography - Compass Points
A compass is an important tool for map readers. It tells us which way is north and where to find east, south, and west. Together, these are known as the four cardinal points of the compass.
Ordnance Survey maps are always printed with north facing the top.

To help you remember where the points of the compass are, you could try learning a phrase like;
Nobody Ever Swallows Whales or
Naughty Elephants Squirt Water
Never Eat Shredded Wheat

Follow the clues on the map to get the answers. Can you write a clue for someone in your family to follow. Or you could send me a clue!

Summer 1 Week 2 Reading Comprehension

Wednesday Maths - Comparing Fractions
Today you are going to be comparing fractions using the < > and = signs. There are 2 pages of fraction cards and the second page is a challenge page so have a go at this if you find the first page easy or you want to challenge yourself. If you have a printer you can print the sheets and cut out the fraction cards but don’t worry if you don’t as you can write the fractions onto slips of paper.

Turn all the fractions over and put them in a grid on a table. Pick up 2 cards and compare them using the < > and = signs. You might want to create 3 extra cards for the < > and = signs and put the right sign between the cards and take a photo of the cards or you can glue the cards on a sheet of paper once you’ve turned them over and draw the correct symbol between the cards. Use the fractions wall to help you with the comparison.

Wednesday - Music
