Home Learning 2020 - 2021


This year, we are going to try and keep our home learning online as much as possible, to minimise the amount of resources that need to be taken to and from school. In the folders below, you will be able to find your weekly home learning activities which you can complete in your home learning books. This can then be shared with us via Seesaw. New home learning is set on a Friday and should be completed by the following Thursday. Most of the activities will also have answers so you can self-mark once you have completed the activities.


You must also ensure that you are reading your colour band books regularly as well as reading and responding to texts on Bugclub. There will also be additional Home Learning on MyMaths and TTrockstars. 


If you have any questions, please speak to Ms N. Radcliffe, your class teacher, or you can use the contact details at the bottom of this page.


Dear Parent/Carer,

This term's Home Learning can be found in Remote Learning Summer 1 (April 2021-May 2021). There you will find a folder called Weekend Home Learning. 

Messages From New Year 3 Teachers 2020-2021

Important - Use Seesaw to speak with your teacher!


Download the Seesaw Class app via your app store. Use your 12-digit personal text code.

Your child can then share their learning with their teacher and receive feedback.

This opportunity is available for pupils in all year groups, from Nursery to Year 6.

School Closure - Home Learning


Hello year 3,


Even though you are not at school at the moment, we know you do not want to miss out on any learning! That is why we have made sure you will carry on with your learning, even though you are at home. You are required to complete all your learning into your homework books.


Each day you will have a reading, PE, maths, SPAG, writing and a foundation subject to complete which we expect you to complete.


Some worksheets may have answers attached or included to support parents when working with their children. We ask if you have time, to check each day’s tasks before letting your children see them so they do not just copy any answers from the sheet.


Things we still expect to see from your home learning books;

  • You are completing ALL work each day.
  • Only begin a new page when you have finished the one you are on.
  • Put the short date and what the learning is before completing each task (If you have a ruler at home, underline it. If not, do not underline the date and LO).
  • Your handwriting should be the neatest it can possibly be.
  • We expect you to work just as hard with your learning at home as much as you do when you are in school.
  • All teachers will be regularly making sure all children have books to read on their Bug Club accounts and tasks on their MyMaths. We also expect all children to make sure they are regularly practising their timetables on TT Rockstars.
  • Twinkl has given free access to their resources.

Please click on KS2 and there you can search through an abundance of resources. Please search for things like reasoning papers, arithmetic papers, reading papers and science resources.


If children or parents have any questions about the home learning at all, please feel free to email Mr Hollingsworth (Year Group Leader) and he will get back to you as soon as he possibly can to support you. You can do this directly by clicking on the 'Children' tab on the Gascoigne website home page then click on 'Year 3'.


Please check the school website everyday at 9am to be welcomed and prepared for the day and then again at 3pm to reflect on the day.


Thank you for your hard work and continuous support in these uncertain times.


Year 3 team.

What standard is expected in Year 3? Take a look at our Target Tracker National Curriculum Steps.


As part of the curriculum, children are expected to complete comprehension tasks independently. In order to ensure that our children are achieving the expected progress they will need practice these skills. Attached is a completed comprehension task that models what is expected of the children in year 3. The model along with the simple steps provided below should help you to assist your children in completing this activity as part of their home learning. You may work with your children but please be aware that during test conditions children are expected to complete all reading independently. Please let the children complete the tasks independently and then follow the steps below to check through it with them together after they have completed it.


4 step guide for comprehension:

1. Read and understand the text.


2. Read and understand the question

  • What is it asking you to do?


3. Highlight the important words in the question.

  • Think about where the answer might be.
  • Highlight text


4. Find the answer

  • Look at how many marks the question is worth to determine how much detail you will need to answer in.

5. Answer the question.
