Welcome to Year 3 Penguins!
Hopefully I will get to see you all very soon! I miss you all!
Well done to all the Penguins who have been sending me lots of work on Seesaw, I love seeing what you have been up to!
As you all already know, our class are working on Seesaw for home learning. This is where you will find all the work I set. Please make sure your child logs in to see what I am asking them to do.
I will continue to post work via Seesaw over the next few weeks! I will also be posting some extra documents on this class page on a weekly basis to help with some of those activities. Please don't feel pressured to complete everything I set, complete what you can manage! I do love to see what you are doing at home so post and share what you can on Seesaw once it is completed.
As you already know, our topic this half term is 'Rotten Romans.' We will be finding out about about the daily life of a Roman this week. We are also learning about 'Light and Shadows' in Science. I will be setting you activities and tasks about both of these topics via Seesaw, I will look forward to seeing your work! I have posted a PowerPoint and a website below as research to help you with one of the History activities on Seesaw for this week.
For Literacy, the Lancashire Literacy Team have kindly shared plans for parents and children to follow each day. This week follows activities based on 'Shoes' and I will be posting a daily Seesaw activity following this plan. The plan is also posted on the class page below for a parent overview.
There are also some Maths lessons by NCETM with videos and activities for the children to complete. Please see an explanation and the link posted below.
If you scroll down the class page, I have posted some websites which will also help with home schooling!
I am very much looking forward to being back in school to see you all again but until then, keep learning, keeping smiling and stay safe Penguins!

I have sent the children home with 'Home Learning Packs.' They have lots of work to complete in paper form including spellings. I will be posting work on Seesaw for the children to complete daily and all children have been sent home the QR code to log in. The children have also taken their logins for Times Table Rockstars and Purple Mash which they can log onto at home. Every child has more than one book to read and Purple Mash also has a 'Serial Mash' section which includes reading and comprehension questions. I suggest that the children participate in 'Joe Wicks live P.E lessons' on Youtube at 9am every morning for a great start to the day! I have also suggested to the children that they keep a diary through this time of their lives to look back on in years to come. I think they will be thankful for it when they grow up. If any children have lost their logins, I will be in school so feel free to get in touch!
Carol Vorderman is offering free access to her maths website! Take a look!
Pobble365 is also great as it generates an image and gives lots of activities for the children to complete. Take a look!
Hit the button is a free website for the children to practise timestables and number bonds!
Joe Wicks has a live P.E lesson for children every morning at 9am!
SuperMovers is also a fantastic website that keeps your children active. They will learn from the videos too! The children will be familiar with these from class! Take a look!
David Walliams is also reading a 30 minute story to the children every day! Please have a look!
There are also some create ideas so home learning tasks in this YouTube video!
I am sending you all lots of smiles and positive thoughts during this time!

Welcome to Year 3 Penguins!
Hello and welcome to the Year 3 Penguin’s page!
I am Miss Stowe, class teacher, and Miss Pilling is our Teaching Assistant.
Life in Year 3 is very busy, exciting and rewarding for the children as they will be working very hard throughout the school year. Your child may find Year 3 challenging at first as they will be managing the big jump from Key Stage One to Key Stage Two. However I will be working with your child for a smooth and happy transition. We are looking forward to spending this year enhancing your child's love for learning, helping them grow and develop their skills and knowledge, and guiding them to become their best selves.
It will be beneficial for your child if you listen to them read daily and help them to practise their weekly spellings and maths facts. We thank you in advance for your support at home.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding any aspect of school life please do not hesitate to come and speak to me after school at 3.30pm. Please keep updated by checking our class page for important information, updates and photographs of the fun and exciting things that we do in our class over the year.
As I am sure you are aware, reading is the key to opening many successful and exciting doors for your child. Being able to read and understand the text is a building brick to creating your child's wall of learning. It is essential to your child's progress in all subject areas that you listen to them read as much as possible and discuss the text with them.
Please sign your child's reading diary and make a comment to ensure that their book has been read. We check these throughout the week to ensure that a love and enthusiasm for reading is encouraged by the partnership between both school and home.
Your child should be reading to you every night for approximately ten minutes before you spend five minutes discussing the text with them.
In Year 3 your child will participate in spelling lessons to learn different spelling rules. It would be beneficial for your child if you would kindly help them practise their weekly spellings which I will post here on our Class Page.
We will have a spelling test every Friday morning before a new spelling list will be given to the children for the following week.
It is very important for your child to practise their times tables as much a possible to enhance their learning in Maths. The children need to revise 2x 5x and 10x and learn 3x 4x and 8x.
Penguin's will participate in two P.E lessons each week taught by our Sports Coach Mr Ashraf. Our P.E lessons will be taught on a Thursday and a Friday, therefore all children will be expected to have their full P.E kit in school on these days.
I would advise that your child brings their P.E kit in at the start of a half term and takes it home at the end of a half term to be washed.This will ensure that your child will have their full P.E kit in school for the required days.
All children should have a purple tshirt, black shorts and black pumps which should be brought into school inside a drawstring bag. If your child wears earrings, please ensure that they are removed before school or they may not be able to participate in P.E. Finally, please check that your child's clothing is labelled as things can easily get misplaced.
Both myself and Miss Pilling are looking forward to helping your child enhance their love for learning and helping them grow throughout Year 3.
