Fortnight Beginning 4th May


Hello Year 3, 

I hope you are well.

The new 'Home Learning Overview for Juniper Class' attached below gives you an overview for the next 2 weeks (4th - 15th May) - please read this first. 

In Maths we will continue to follow the White Rose Home Learning. You can use this link to access the Year 3 resorces: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/. We are out of sync with the dates on the website so we are beginning 'Summer Term Week 1 (w/c 20th April)' from Monday 4th May. We will then move on to, 'Summer Term Week 2 (w/c 27th April)' on Monday 11th May. Links to the White Rose videos have also been attached below. You do not need to print the question sheets, you can just write the date and record your answers in your maths books. 

Continue to practice your timestables on Rockstars and keep your eyes peeled, I'll be launching a battle very soon!

English work, for the first week, is linked to VE Day. All the resources you need, including links to child-friendly websites and videos about VE Day, are attached below. You should look at these before you plan and write your diary entry so you know what to include. The second weeks work is linked to the document titled 'Thank You'. 

Our Humanities work is also linked to VE Day, as on Friday the 8th May it will be the 75th anniversary of this historic event. There is a list of suggested activities to help you celebrate this day at home. Don't forget to send in any pictures of your celebrations!

There is also a Science task which follows on from the previous two weeks work on plants. All resources are attached below. 

Each househould is different, and everyones circumstances vary. Please do not feel pressure to do everything I have suggested. Everyone is doing what they can, and you are all doing a fantastic job. I am incredibly proud of our class! If you need help or have any questions, please email me at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

I look forward to when we can be back in the classroom together. Stay home and stay safe. 

Miss Whittaker
