Self-Isolation Work

If you are self-isolating and your child is well enough to work then they can complete the work that we have done in class. In addition to the work below the children can read their reading book and play on Times Tables Rockstars.


Oliver Jeffers (The Author of 'The Day The Crayons Quit') is reading one of his story books each day and you can watch them here:


Here are 101 activities that do not require a laptop or tablet:


Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you back in class soon. 


Thusday 19th March 



Today we are finishing writing our instructions. Then we are editing and improving our work. Ensure your work has:

  • a title (including 'how to')
  • a 'You will need section' (with bullet points)
  • a variety of time conjunctions (first, then, after that, next)
  • imperative verbs
  • adverbs (carefully, slowly)
  • diagrams/ illustrations


In maths, we are doing some MiXeD Up MaThS! :) We are recapping a variety of things we have learnt in Year 3 so far. We are looking at fractions, perimeter, bar charts and column addition and subtraction with exchanges. We will also be doing times tables practise.


Wednesday 18th March



Writing instructions:

Write instructions for replanting a bulb into a larger pot. Remember to use time conjunctions and bossy verbs.



Today we are looking at unit and non- unit fractions. Have a think about real life examples where you would use fractions and give examples of unit and non-unit fractions.


A unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator is 1 and the denominator is a whole number e.g. 1/2, 1/3, 1/4. A non-unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator (the number on the top half of the fractions) is greater than 1 e.g. 3/4, 3/5, 2/3.
