Home Learning -  Summer 2


Dear parents/ carers

We hope that you are all safe and well and enjoying the lovely sunshine. 


As children begin to slowly return to school, we will continue to set work for Year 3 to access via the website. If you are having trouble using the website, finding the work, or need any more workbooks for your child/children, then please contact the school and we will endeavour to help. Some of you have requested work to be sent home and we will continue to do that. 


We will keep updating Mathletics and setting new challenges, so please keep checking. If your child has mislaid their login details, we have the master copy at school, so please contact us and we will be able to provide you with it. 


Keep checking the class pages too, as we update websites, such as 'Reach Out Reporter' and links to Musician of the Month, as well as adding other links to pages and activities we think the children will enjoy.


Thank you for your continued support. You are doing an amazing job in very difficult circumstances and we really appreciate everything you are doing to support your child's learning at home.


Stay safe and look after each other.

Kind regards

The Year 3 team

First News.

First news is an online newspaper especially for children. We use it in school, so the children will be familiar with it. Every week, as well as publishing the paper, they also publish some short reading comprehensions, called Four Stories, which we will be including here.

We hope you enjoy reading the paper online and having a go at the comprehensions.

Miss Radford's Read Aloud

Follow the link below to hear Miss Radford reading the fantastic book 'Max and the Millions'. We hope you enjoy the story. 

When you have listened to it, it would be great if you could do a book review and tell us what you thought of it. Was it the best book you've ever heard? Was it funny or sad? Did it make you think differently about something? We would love to know your thoughts.



Daily Lessons


The BBC have launched daily lessons to support each year group. Have a look by following the link below


Oak national academy are also doing 3 lessons each day for each Year group which children can follow along with.


Twig Science Reporter 02-07-20

This week there are 2 films to watch about asteroids:

What Are Asteroids?

What Killed the Dinosaurs?

You can watch either film or both.

Now answer the questions:

What are asteroids?

What are the possible effects of an asteroid hitting the Earth?

Do you think an asteroid killed the dinosaurs? Why?

Twig Science Reporter

This week's report is all about renewable and non-renewable energy.

Watch the video and then think about the pros and cons of each.

Which do you think would be the best type of energy and why?


How Do Volcanoes Work?

On this week's Twig Science Reporter you can find out about how volcanoes erupt.

Watch the video and then try drawing a labelled diagram to explain how volcanoes work.


Meet the Scientist


Here is a website where you can meet scientists and engineers and ask them questions about the work they do.


Some are people from history like:

Isambard Kingdom Brunel - engineer

Florence Nightingale - nurse


Others are people who work in science or engineering today:

Doctors working during the current crisis

Engineers who have built structures in the UK

Space scientists


You might like to carry out your own research about a famous scientist and prepare a presentation to share with us in school.

Fun Science Activities 

Sphere Science have produced a pack of science activities that you might like to try.

Have fun and remember to take photos of your experiments to show us.

Forest Fields Growing Garden

Just before the school closed, the children in Year 3 planted potatoes in the school garden.

We thought you would like to know how they are getting on so Mr Lee took some photos.

If you want to know more about how potatoes grow, follow this link and watch the film called Earthy Potatoes




Potatoes May 2020

While briefly in school last week, I took photos of the potatoes. Look how they have grown!

Hopefully there are lots of tiny potatoes hiding under the soil getting bigger ready for us to dig up soon.


Potatoes - May 2020

Art and Creativity



BBC Ten Pieces has launched a weekly music resource today which includes a Ten Pieces film to watch and enjoy, and a linked creative activity that can be completed by children without any special materials or preparation. A perfect, simple and easy way to keep listening, enjoying and creating music at this time!

Keep up to speed with what you have learned so far in Spanish.

Making Skeletons


Yesterday we made animal skeletons out of sticks and pine cones and other things that you could find in the garden or park.

You could try making an animal skeleton yourself and then take a photo of it.

Can you label the bones?

Spring in the School Garden

This morning we went out into the school garden to look for signs of spring.

Here are some photos of what we saw.


Can you write a poem or a description about Spring in Forest Fields?

You might even see some signs of spring in your own garden or the park.

Super Science

We looked in the school garden at the beginning of term to see signs of Autumn. We found lots of fruit, flowers and seeds.

Signs of Autumn in the school garden.

We carried out experiments to find out what seeds need  in order to germinate.


Look at these brilliant robots that we created at home. What a lot of time and effort has gone into them. We are very impressed. Thankyou to all children (and families) who completed a homework challenge. yes

Rise of the Robots

We have really enjoyed learning all about robots and creating some of our own using pneumatics to make them move.

We have created animations in ICT and have learned how to program.

We loved reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and our teachers were very impressed by the language we used in our re-telling of the story. Miss Hoyland thought they were amazing too!

We had great fun learning about forces and magnetism in science. Some of us made a magnetic fishing game as part of our homework challenge; we know what metals are attracted to magnets; which things don't stick and what' attract' and' repel' mean.

Some of us worked really hard at home to build our own robots. They were truly amazing and our teachers couldn't believe all the hard work we did at home.


Our teachers are...


3LM - Mrs. Matthews  

3ML - Mrs. Lowe & Ms. Marks

3AJ - Mrs Jeffery 

Mrs Martin, Mrs. Winfield
