Growing Together in God

Home Learning Due to School Closure

What can you be doing at home?

  1. 1. Create a routine and structure for your day.
  2. 2. Plan activities and projects you can work on together.
  3. 3. Share your timetable for the day with your child.
  4. 4. Look for opportunities to build your child’s independence. What learning can they do independently?
  5. 6. Be mindful to limit screen time.
  6. 7. Find space in your home for learning and encourage your child to keep it tidy throughout the day. 
  7. 8. Have fun with learning!
  9. You will find a range of resources to support your child to continue their learning; including a model timetable for their day. 



We have set work on Sumdog and will continue to keep setting challenges during the closure for the children to complete. 

Encourage the use of Times Table Rockstars.

All children have been issued with log ins - they will be found in their reading record. 



 We have set Reading and Writing activities on Sumdog, we will continue to keep setting challenges during the closure for the children to complete. 

Encourage your child to practise their spellings, these can be found in on Sumdog or at the bottom of this web page (Year 3 Common Exception Words). 

Encourage your child to read. Write book reviews on the texts they have read. I have attached an example below.

We have sent learning logs home early in the event of school closure. I have written on the log to choose one or more of the activities. As the school has closed before the Easter Break I expect at least two of these activities to be completed. You will find a copy of the learning log below.

Our theme this half term is all about the rainforest! 

We will be learning all about...


 In Literacy we will be reading ‘The Great Kapok Tree’ writing our own version of the tale. We will also be looking at non-chronological reports and poetry. 

How you can help your child at home-

Read stories with them and talk about the structure of the story. How does the story start? What comes next? What are the characters like? How do you know?

In numeracy we will be exploring statistics, length and perimeter and begin to look at factions.


We will: 

  • Interpret and present data using bar
    charts, pictograms and tables.
  • Solve one-step and two-step
    questions using information presented in
    scaled bar charts and pictograms
    and tables.

Length and Perimeter 

We will: 

  • Measure, compare, add and
    subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass
    (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml).
  • Measure the perimeter of simple 2-
    D shapes.


We will begin to look at: 

  • Count up and down in tenths;
    recognise that tenths arise from
    dividing an object into 10 equal parts
    and in dividing one-digit numbers or
    quantities by 10.


With your child at home you can help them by finding real life examples to encourage using their maths knowledge. 

Practise times tables and division facts, you can use Sumdog and Times Table Rockstars to do this. Encourage your child to achieve their maths badge this half term. 

Learning Logs are due in on the first day of each new term.

Monday - Spelling and Grammar. (to be submitted on Wednesday and on Friday's we will test spellings.)
