Year 3 Blog Work – WC 27.04.20

Hello Maple and Redwood Class,

Things are changing slightly on the blog. Instead of posting every day, we are going to post your tasks for the week.

For English and maths there will be 5 lessons available. It would be amazing if you could complete one a day, but we know this isn’t possible for everyone, so aim for at least 3
There will also be 3 other tasks to complete which will be the wider curriculum as well as spellings. These may be science, geography, history, PSHE, PE, computing, art or D&T.
Please do your best to let us know how you are getting on with tasks. Either leave a comment (as short or detailed as you wish!) or send us an email: 

One of us will post a video at least once a week so keep an eye on the blog for those to appear.

Take care everyone,
Miss Bailey & Mr Bettles


We will be using the English lessons on

Work through the lessons in order as they build over the week. Click ‘click to start lesson’ and then most of them begin with a quiz, complete the quiz and then click ‘close quiz’. Then press ‘next activity’ on the bottom right to work your way through the lesson. There are often videos with slides to work through and a task to complete at the end. 

Remember you can always pause the video if you need more time to complete a task. 


We will be using Maths lesson on

As this is the first time Year 3 have accessed this website, we ask that you start at week 1 (Unit and non-unit fractions). 

  1. Watch the video.
  2. Complete the activity.
  3. Check your answers.

If you’ve made a mistake can you figure out why?


Keep learning your Year 3 / 4 common exception word list (there should be a copy in your reading record, your home learning pack and you can also find them online).

Spelling task – Song or Rap

Pick some words from the 3 / 4 common exception word list and make a song or rap. You can include as many words as you wish and send them over once you have finished. 

Wider Curriculum Task 1 – Science

Forces – What is a force?​​

Forces are just pushes and pulls in a particular direction.

Forces are shown by arrows in diagrams. The direction of the arrow shows the direction in which the force is acting. The bigger the arrow, the bigger the force.


Create a poster with the information you have learnt. 

Explain the difference between a balanced force and an unbalanced force. 

Make note of when you use difference forces around the house during your daily activities.

Wider Curriculum Task 2 – PSHE


Joshua and Reilly are the best of friends. When Joshua moves to America with his family, Reilly explains that even though Joshua has made new friends in America, they are still best friends. Reilly shows us the different forms of communication they use to keep in touch such as emails and letters.


If you were going to write and email to a friend, who would it be? What would you include in your email? Would you send pictures?
Remember – If you are using the internet to keep safe. 

Wider Curriculum Task 3 – Design and Technology

Does eating breakfast affect concentration?


As you can see from the video that breakfast is an important start to the day as it can help concentration. 

Do you have breakfast?
Can you create you favourite breakfast and explain if it healthy or unhealthy?
You can present this however you like and be creative. 

Additional Activities – If you have completed all the tasks and want to carry on learning you can use any of the below.

Maths –

Reading and Writing – ​
Spellings – use your year 3/4 spellings and pick 10 words to practise. 

Choose something to read at home – anything with words!

    Hello. We don’t understand what to do with the English lesson. The link goes to a series of quizzes to assess the level of ability.. Which lessons should we do?

      Thanks for raising this. I’ve just added some further instructions to the post:
      Work through the lessons in order as ​they build over the week. Click ‘click to start lesson’ and then most of them begin with a quiz, complete the quiz and then click ‘close quiz’. Then press ‘next activity’ on the bottom right to work your way through the lesson. There are often videos with slides to work through and a task to complete at the end. 

      See how you get on and let me know if you need any further help. It will be a bit of trial and error as we all get used to this.

    The English is very confusing because I did the Co-Bot questions but then he just started to say answers from a different text.

    • 27th April 2020 at 2:11 pm

      The Co-Bot questions are the questions he is doing as examples. You then have to complete an independent activity with a new text (paper hats), to apply what you have learnt. You need to pause the video, close it, click ‘next activity’, complete the worksheet and then click ‘resume video’ (top right) to go through the answers.

    I did the English lesson with Mr Mac and got all of the questions right

    Maths – I got my fractions right.

    I learnt that a non-unit fraction has a numerator greater than 1 and a
    unit fraction has a numerator = to 1

      Good afternoon,

      Well done Lucas on completing the English and Maths sessions today. It’s great to see you using vocabulary such as numerator, keep up the brilliant effort.

    Hi Miss Bailey
    I did both the maths and English today and only got one wrong in maths because I didn’t read the question. I also got my gold trophy on maths factor today. I am baking this afternoon with my sister but we haven’t got mars bars so it will be something different to you. I am reading worlds worst children at the moment and I have finished the worlds worst teachers luckily you weren’t in there. I am starting my covid lockdown scrapbook soon, at the weekend I set an animal quiz for my parents but I ended up testing most of my family in the UK by FaceTime and my aunty in America. Ffion

      Hello Ffion,
      Wow! You have been busy. I am very relieved to hear that I wasn’t in World’s Worst Teachers!
      Well done for the gold trophy on maths factor. It sounds like you’re working hard and having fun. Good luck with the baking – let me know what you end up making. 🙂
      Take care,
      Miss Bailey

      Hello Lexie,

      It’s great to hear from you! It seems like you have been very busy, lots of physical activity and learning new skills.
      I would love to see your Joe Wicks T-Shirt. Is it possible to email me a picture?

      I have been keeping myself busy with running, cycling, cooking and gardening as the weather has been beautiful. The rain didn’t stop my daily run today and I hope you managed to get outdoors for some fresh air.

      Hope to hear from you soon,
