Hello Year 3,

We want to start today’s post by saying a big thank you to so many of you for sending us such brilliant Andy Goldsworthy inspired art- you really are a creative bunch. It really made us smile knowing that so many of us can still participate in our Forest School sessions and we hope to have you all back on your logs with a hot chocolate in no time! On that note, another HUGE thank you to parents for supporting this/all the learning we set at home :).

Guided Reading

Today we haven’t set a guided reading task to allow you the time to pick up a good book and get lost in a fictional world/learn some interesting facts from a non-fiction text. You could even read out loud to a sibling, parent or a pet if you wish, we think they would enjoy that also.


We have been so impressed with how you are getting to grips with multiplication and divsion.  Learning your times tables, as I am sure your parents will tell you, is a skill that will help you throughout life.  Living in the digital age, means that you can learn your times tables in a more fun and interactive way, rather than rote learning.  Therefore, today’s maths session is chance to to do this.  We would like you to spend your maths session today accessing Times Table Rock Stars, logging on and challenging yourself to answers as many questions as you can in the time set.  How many coins can you earn? What will you spend your coins on in the Avatar shop?

Maybe you could challenge a friend to a battle!

The times table questions you see and answer will vary from week to week as we add in more and more multiples and times tables to challenge you! So remember to keep logging on!

Your TTRS log in is on the back of your readung diary. Google TTRS student login. The page should look something like this:

If you have any password / log in issues / queries please email and we will do our best to sort it out for you as soon as possible!

Happy times table practising!


Please click on the link to the PowerPoint to view today’s Literacy task. In today’s lesson, we are continuing to write our biography for Mary Anning. As explained in the video, we are asking that you submit a piece of work to our email year3@abbeyroadprimary.co.uk in order for us to provide you with feedback. We are really looking forward to reading it- remember to check your work against the success criteria :).


Please click on the link below and listen to Mrs Seagrave explaining today’s science learning and task.  Pause the video below when prompted and watch the you tube clip further below before returning to the main making a sedimentary video.  If you would like to submit a photograph of your labelled diagram we would love to see it! Send it to year3@abbeyroadprimary.co.uk

Should you wish to make a sedimentary sandwich yourself at another time you will need:

Brown bread, marmite, prawns in mayonnaise, salad leaves, chicken and red and yellow peppers.

Please do let us know if you need anything at all- however minor- we are here to help :). Good luck and enjoy today’s learning tasks.
