Home Learning for this week

Home Learning

Spelling: Vowel Suffix ‘ing’

In Year Three we learn our spellings every day in lessons ready to be tested on that Friday. We will then send home a sheet of spellings from the test with the words that they spelt wrong highlight in pink for them to keep practising.  The sheet is in the home learning book.

However, If they scored 15/15 on the recent spelling test, they can use the dictionary to find trickier words ending in ‘ing’ for their home  spellings this week such as struggling.

Times Tables:  We have a times tables test every Monday in Year Three. If there is a times table the children need to practice we will send them home with a sheet to support them and practice for the next test.

Don’t forget My Maths, Bug Club and Abacus online!

Have a good weekend

Brilliant Butser!


The children all enjoyed our fantastic trip to Butser Hill last week where we were lucky enough to have beautiful weather. They were able to have a hands on experience of what life would have been like in the stone age and learnt lots more about our topic.

Some of the activities the children took part in were:

  • Making bracelets and necklaces from wool
  • Moulding clay pots
  • Helped to build a stone age fence
  • Ground chalk with mallets
  • Looked around round houses
  • Visited the pigs and Goats

Photos of the day will be added to the blog this week.

The children learnt lots more about the stone age period and are eager to learn more! We have attached the Stone Age home learning pyramid below for the children to start completing some of the tasks for this half term. The children have also stuck these in their home learning books to give them some ideas.

Home learning – Iron Age

Abacus and Bugclub have been updated and ready for the children to do their weekly learning.

Thank you,

Our first week……..

The first week has come to an end in Year Three and we have really enjoyed being back together again. Children have now been provided with their homework diaries to record their homework in and their work book. Their new Stone Age to the Iron Age homework pyramid has been stuck into the front of these too.

We will be kicking off next week with our trips to Butser Ancient farm- 3ST will be going on Monday and 3SH will be going on Tuesday. Please ensure children are provided with a packed lunch and water bottle for the day. The site is predominantly outside so please provide the children with appropriate clothing for the weather e.g wellies, trainers, rain coats, sun hats (too optimistic!) If you are yet to return your slip PLEASE may these be returned by Monday morning at the latest.  Butser is a fantastic venue for us to have a hands on experience of what it was like to live in the Stone Age to the Iron age period of time.

Look out for next weeks post of photos of us learning at Butser.
