Year 3 Home Learning


Y3  Home Learning Plan

Class teachers:  Mrs Hart and Mrs Elliott


This Home Learning Plan supports the education of children needing to isolate at home but who would otherwise be well enough to attend school.  


The Home Learning Plan combines set daily tasks for a child to complete for English, links to daily White Rose Maths, links to Oak National Academy daily lessons (this includes teaching and learning of other subjects in the curriculum). 


Daily reading:  


It is so important you continue your daily reading.  Please read at least 30 minutes a day – great if you can read longer (you may wish to break it up into two 15 minute sessions).   Choose from the following types of text:

 your school reading book

  • your assigned book on Active Learn – Bug Club
(log in details on page 21 of Home School Diary)

  • one of your own fiction or non-fiction books
  • an article on the Children’s Newsround website
  •  a magazine or comic
  • The Year 2 and the Year 3/Year 4 spelling list - pages 23 and 24 of the Home School Diary


Please spend some time discussing what you have read with an adult- see pages 30-35 of the Home School Diary for further details.
