Year 3 home learning

Welcome to the Year 3 home learning area

This page has an overview of work to be completed in the event of a school closure i.e. snow day or a student being ill but well enough to complete some work.

This work reflects the same learning that the children in school will be completing. 

Wherever possible, we will reply to any questions or queries you may have about the work. We would also like to see what work children are doing, so please use Dojo or email to send photos, videos or documents.

We expect children to be completing the following daily activities:

  • reading for at least 20 minutes;
  • spelling shed or practising their spellings for 20 minutes;
  • TTRockstars for 20 minutes.
