Maths homework

It is great to see that after a week off, you haven’t lost your enthusiasm for learning! A lot of you asked for some extra maths homework this week.

Don’t forget that you are the experts in Y3 (sorry parents and carers!) and you know what kinds of questions we have covered so far from the sheets. If you finish them all, ask someone at home to write down similar questions for you to complete in your target book.

You all impressed me earlier with your 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times table knowledge earlier today. Keep working on knowing these as quick as your name.

Play some of the games below to help with this:

  • How many in 60 seconds.
  • Fizz buzz (show a grown up this game!)
  • (Remember to only select the times tables we have learnt)

Have fun Y3.

Climate zones around the world

This week in our geography learning, we have been looking at climate zones around the world. The four main climates we know are:

  • Polar
  • Temperate
  • Desert
  • Tropical

The website below gives us lots of information about these and other fun facts. Choose a country and tell me about its climate and anything else you find interesting!


Wonderful weather!

This week in our topic lesson, we have been looking at some key words to do with the weather such as; precipitation, visibility, temperature and sunshine. I would like you to look at a weather report, google weather in the UK, and see if you can see any of these words or others from our topic lesson.

These are good websites to look at.

Here is your knowledge organiser for this term. You can stick this in your target book on Monday.


This week in Y3

Hello Y3,

It has been a while, but I am hoping to see more of you on the blog!

In our knowledge lessons, we have looked at 10 European flags, 10 European landmarks and now we are looking at 10 European dishes! Can you remember any famous landmarks, dishes or the colours on any flags?

In maths this week, we have been looking at fractions and we have learnt some new vocabulary; numerator, denominator, equal to. We even wow-ed Mr Abbott with our fraction knowledge. Well done!

On Tuesday, we will be having our Egyptian day. What are you most looking forward too?

These numbers like to be in order!

In our maths this week, we will be ordering and comparing 3 digit numbers. Here are some questions to get your brain working.

Can you make some 3 digit numbers using these number cards and then put them in order of size?

5       7       0       6       1

We will also be looking at using the greater than (>) and less than (<) signs. Is the following number sentence true or false?

821 < 114

If you still want more, explain how you put 3 digit numbers into order from smallest to largest.

Welcome to Key Stage Two!

I must say Y3, I have had a wonderful week with you all. I have ended each day with a smile on my face because you have all shown me how hard you can work and how good your behaviour can be. Well done.

Lots of things are different in key stage two, and it might take us a while to get used to how things work, but you are already on the right tracks. I know that you must feel very grown up with your new reading records and target books and I am already seeing good work in these.

What are you looking forward to the most about being in Key Stage Two and Year 3?

Parts of a flower


Carrying on from our plants and flower learning this term, I have found a website that I think you might like. It gives more information about the different parts of a flower. We have looked at:

  • stamen
  • stigma
  • style

Can you remember which parts of the flower are male and which parts are female?

Tell me below.

Here is the website

What can you remember?

Wow, I can’t believe that it is nearly the end of another year.

I have been thinking about all the fun that we have had and all of the learning that has taken place. We have looked at three topics in history and geography; Ancient Egyptians, Brazil and the Stone Age.

Can you tell me one fact that you will remember forever from each topic?

It’s all coming together..

We are nearly at the end of the school year, but the hard work isn’t over just yet.

I want you to be getting quick with those times tables that we have looked at this year (3, 4, 8)

Try having some fun over the long weekend with your family by playing one of these games:

  • Bingo. Can you be the quizmaster?
  • Hit the button (try the different challenges on there)
  • Dance with Filbert Fox
  • Write the first 12 multiples of 8 on pieces of card. Then ask an adult to turn a card over. Can you guess in less than 5 seconds what the multiple was?
  • Maybe you know a good game you can share with the class on the blog?

Have fun!
