Maths Tasks

BBC Radio 4 - Woman's Hour - Maths anxiety: How can parents help their children?


We have continued working on fractions this week. A 2Do focussing fraction equivalence, which the children have looked at this week has been set on Purple Mash.

Please could this be completed by  Sunday 11th April.

We would also like the children to practise their times tables using Times Table Rockstars. It is really important that the children continue to practise their times tables regularly at home as these are facts that are used when learning many new objectives. In Year 3, we focus on the 3, 4 and 8 times table.

English Tasks

Bolsover Church of England Junior School - English

Have a look at the words and determine whether a prefix or a suffix has been applied. Think carefully, it’s quite tricky!

Head over to Purple Mash and complete the Word Families 2Do.



Help Your Kid Ace The Next Spelling Test




This week, we are looking again at some of the spellings that were set during lockdown. These are words and rules that the children are still finding difficult to spell correctly in their writing, particularly when a double consonant is required.

Work hard to revise and learn each spelling.  Read the words aloud, point out any unusual sounds or letter patterns and discuss the meaning of the words with a family member or how you could put them in a sentence.

Write your words using different colours and lettering styles as you practised; you could even design your own spelling quiz or wordsearch.







When you have had a practise, head over to Spelling Shed ,log in and play the game set as an assignment. Be sure to use this game to practise a few times; the Year 3 team will be looking to see who has generated the highest scores when we come back to school!

Reading Task

Reading Programmes: the art of reading for the OED | Oxford English Dictionary

Many of you are already doing an excellent job with your home reading. This week, we would love you to keep up this fantastic effort. Aim to be reading at least 4 times per week and don’t forget to record it in your planner to count towards your certificates!

Remember a daily read counts as one read in your planner.

Who is going to achieve their Bronze Award (50 daily home reads)?

Who will be the first in Year 3 to achieve their Silver Award (100 home reads)?
