Good Morning Year 3!


Hope you’ve all enjoyed your Easter Holidays and managed to spend some time out in the sunshine! Normally you would all be coming back into school and telling me all about the amazing things you have been up to over the holidays but this year is different! I still can’t wait to hear about everything that you have been doing when we finally come back to school! I am missing you all loads but glad that you’re all staying safe and looking after yourselves!

Here are your activities for your first day back working!


English: Write a diary entry about the things that you have been doing over the Easter Holidays. Remember, a diary entry is written in first person (I, we), it is in chronological order so try to use time connectives (First, then, before, after, later), it needs to be descriptive so try to use expanded noun phrases (delicious, chocolate Easter egg) and should include emotions so explain how you were feeling. Try to also include subordinate conjunctions (because, while, when, if, that).


Maths: Make a poster to practise your 8 times table. Then log onto mathshed and see if you can move up the leader board. Remember your log in details are in the front of your home learning book. You could also play hit the button and see how many questions you can answer in a minute. Play again and see if you can beat your score. Follow the link below.

Art: Have a look at the work of Andy Goldsworthy. He uses natural materials to create artwork. Create a collage using materials you can find around your house and garden. e.g. leaves and twigs, rice, pasta..


PE: Can you complete these challenges and record how many of each of these tasks you managed in 1 minute.


  • run up and down the stairs in your house
  • star jumps
  • stand up and sit down/lie down
  • touch your toes and jump up and try to touch the ceiling
  • jump from one side of the room to the other


Record how many times you did each activity. Challenge someone in your family to complete the activities and compare your scores. Talk about how you felt after completing the exercise.
