School Closure

Daily  Home  Learning Plan  

Now that school is going to be closed again, we don’t want you to stop learning! It is really important that you carry on practising your basic skills and keep your creative juices flowing!

Below is a list of ideas for things you can do when you should be in school. We will update our class page each week with some new ideas to keep you ticking over.   

 Check out the document downloads below because there will be some helpful documents for you to look at.

Please remember to keep any work that you complete at home and bring it back to school when you return.

This week’s inspiration:

Week beginning: Monday 11th January

English:  Your work this week is all based around a classic poem called ‘The Owl and The Pussycat’. There are two PowerPoint files for you – one with a voiceover of us teaching and one without. This PowerPoint is designed to last for two weeks, so make sure you only complete up to lesson 5 this week. 

You are going to be reading the poem, sequencing it, completing a comprehension about it and then planning and starting your writing, which you will finish next week.

Your English Teacher Feedback Task for this week is to send us your comprehension sheet, so that we can see how you've fully answered the questions and have been a reading detective, backing up all of your answers with evidence from the poem! Ask an adult to email it, or a photo of your work, to us by Friday. We will then read it and provide you with some feedback on your work by next Tuesday.


This week’s spellings are:









Keep learning and revising all the Y3 and 4 Words.These are attached below. 

You can also use a dictionary to find definitions of your spellings and write them in sentences. 

If you are in Mrs Low's spelling group please use Nessy for 10 mins each day as an alternative to the spellng lists each week. 


This week’s focus for Year 3 is: Calculation

There are some different PowerPoint questions for you to work through each day and you can check your answer each time on the next slide, to make sure that you’re on the right track! There are also some teaching videos of the different methods that we use in school, just in case you are finding it a little tricky and need a reminder. These are found ona separate tab at the top of our class page.

We would also like you to complete three Garage games and one Sound Check each day on TTR. Once you have completed these, feel free to complete further activities and games! Remember to go on Doodle Maths regularly: try to do ‘little and often’ and stay in the green zone! Use Doodle Tables to help you to master the tables that you find tricky. 

We have set up a TTR 'Battle of the bands' between all three of the Lower Junior classes. The winners will be crowned at 3pm on Friday! Every correct answer in any game is worth 1 point towards your team's score. You can track your team's progress when you log in to TTR.

Your Maths Teacher Feedback Task is to send me a copy/photo of a piece of Maths work that you have found challenging this week and that you worked hard on and you feel proud of yourself for. I am looking forward to seeing it!

Parents, please remember – do what you can and what is appropriate for your child!  

Science: Our new Science topic is Forces and Magnets: your activity is to look at the different forces in action and decide whether they are a push or a pull.

Geography:  Our new Geography topic is all about ‘The Alps”. Your first task for this topic is going to be using a map/atlas to find some different mountain ranges and add them to a map of Europe.

DT: We are going to be looking at food this half term, so your first activity is to do some research into different foods and find out where they are grown, and the season in which they grow.

Mindfulness: Acts of Kindness – Use the PowerPoint to think about why we do nice things for people.  Can you think of something that you could do this week for someone which would brighten up their day?


We have included a reminder for all juniors of how to access the pupil area of the website. Click on this link to watch it. We look forward to hearing from you soon! 


Login to the pupil section of the website using your username and password in your home-reading record. It will ask for the school verification code so enter this: 449703

You will find a discussion this week all about your mindfulness activity for this week. Use this discussion to talk to your classmates and myself.

Reading: Please read with your child, regardless of their ability, at least twice per week and sign their home-reading record. Your child will need their reading book each day as we have Accelerated Reading sessions everyday.

Children have access to an online library of books at their current ZPD: 


Children have their username and login in their reading record. They can use MyOn to quiz on books they have read online.  

To quiz on their school reading book, use our school’s AR site: 


Children can also check if a book they have read from home has a quiz attached to it using the following website:
