Hello Year 3,

We want to start today’s post by saying a big thank you to so many of you for sending us more wonderful Andy Goldsworthy inspired art. If you would like to have a look at photos of your friends getting involved in our Forest School sessions just have our look at our weekly Welly  Wednesday post. 🙂 It really made us smile knowing that so many of us can still participate in our Forest School sessions and 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 continuing to work hard with multiplication and division.  Like last week, 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? Can you beat your score from last week?

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 going to write our own opening to the Iron Man from the perspective of the fisherman watching the IM falling off the cliff.  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 carefully against the success criteria :).


We continue our learning about rocks today by finding out about the properties of rocks.  Today’s question is: Are all rocks hard?

Watch the video below:  In the presentation, there is a link to a website that enables you to carry out the rock investigation.  Unfortunately, the game uses Flash, which became extinct in December 2020.  Luckily we have screenshots of the results.  It is not perfect by any means and had we been in school, we would have carried out the experiments practically, but hopefully, it will give you an idea of rock properties.

As always, if you have any problems or questions we are only a message away.

Thank you for your continued support and kind messages.7
