We are proud of ourselves. We are proud of each other. We are proud of our community.
Year 3 Home Learning Hall of Fame
Well done and thank you to all our Y3 families for all your hard work during this period.
New home learning format from 8.6.20
We are starting a new weekly format for home learning, which will run until the end of the summer term. Download the sheet below for this week's timetable.
Each week, a new set of resources will be uploaded which you and your child can use for home learning. As has been the case for all home learning, the work provided here serves as a guide only. It is not expected that children will do all of it, and it is fine to pick and choose which bits to do. Having too much fun outdoors planting seeds? Spending your time cooking or creating beautiful art? In that case it's also totally fine to do none of the work here! Just make sure you keep sharing with us the amazing things you are doing!
Dear year 3 children,
This week is the final week of home learning, and marks the end of another school year. Our time together is almost over, and it is your last week in year 3.
I always find it a sad time when the school year ends, and this year especially so. I want to extend a massive thank you to all of the children, and the adults who care for them, who have worked so hard and coped with so much over the past 4 months.
When you return to school in September, things will be different to how they were when you left. There will be new faces, new friends and lots of amazing new things to learn. Remember that it is ok to step out of your comfort zone sometimes, and to make mistakes. It just means you are learning something new. Work hard, and I know you will do really well.
Each and every one of you is an absolute superstar, and I will miss you very much.
Best wishes for the future.
Victory in Europe Day/ VE Day took place on May 8th 1945. It was a public holiday and day of celebration to mark the defeat of Germany by the Allied forces in World War 2.
VE Day marked the formal conclusion of the war with Germany and brought to an end six years of suffering, courage and endurance across the world.
Please see below for a range of VE Day inspired activities.
Year 3 Home Learning W/C 4.5.20
Please remember that we have no deadline for work to be completed and you are more than welcome to work at the pace and interests of your child. In class, the work which has been listed for this week would be completed over the space of a half term. You are all doing an amazing job and if there is anything which we can help with, please do not hesitate to let us know.
Wider Curriculum - Finding Nemo
The planning for this scheme is similar to what we would be using inside the classroom and where necessary has been adapted, or resources created, to support its use at home. If there is anything that you need further help with or do not understand in the planning, please let us know.
You may also wish to choose select lessons to deliver, rather than complete the scheme lesson by lesson. This is absolutely fine and the numbers next to the resource correspond to the number lesson in the planning.
Instead of printing the resources, you may want to load them onto a screen and have your child write down their learning onto a piece of paper.
If your child does not have access to a computer, or you would like a more creative focus, then there is also a Home Learning Project which you may prefer to explore.

Times Tables Challenge! W/C 18.05.20
We are holding a bit of a maths challenge to see who can learn their times tables fluently. Every child who completes the special challenge below and emails a photo of their sheet to their teacher, will recieve a certificate back in return!
Before you attempt the challenge, see below for some fun, exciting videos to help you learn your times tables!
Play this game as often as you can and you'll soon know your times tables inside out. Answer the questions as fast as you can but try not to get any penalties. At the end of the game you will be shown your score and awarded a prize monster :)
Below are some sheets to help learn the times tables.
Answer all the questions correctly on one of the quizzes below. There are three levels of difficulty. Email a copy of your completed sheet showing all the right answers to Mr Burrows or Mr Hickling. Then, we will send you a special certificate which you can proudly display!

Monsieur Hickling et. Monsieur Burrows
Year 3 Home Learning Competition
Please note that the following is an optional activity which you may wish to undertake if you and your child choose to.
Hello, both Mr Hickling and Mr Burrows have been thinking about our classroom book areas when we return to school and have had a bit of a creative thought...
We would like to decorate and personalise each reading area with your favourite books. Now this is the exciting part... we would like you to create your favourite book in a jar!
To complete this your will to do the following:
The winner of the competition will be judged by a secret. yet expert judging panel. Also remember that all entries will receive legendary status in forming a display in our Y3 classrooms and after, in the school library.
If you're looking for ideas, here are some examples:
Billionaire Boy Alice in Wonderland
*As you can guess, these were not create by Mr Hickling or Mr Burrows!
Here is the next installment of the home learning pack for year 3 children, which contains work for Maths, SPAG, Reading, Literacy and Mini-Mission.
Some activities can be written into the exercise book that each child was given at the end of term. Others can be completed on the work sheets provided and then stuck/stapled in. You may also copy and complete the work sheets if you aren't able to print them.
When your child works in their exercise book, please make sure the work is dated and has a title.
I have aimed to include a lot of work to keep children busy. Please remember, the expectation is not for your child to rush through all the work provided in the time available. Take your time, do a bit each day, and remember to relax and spend time with your child as well. Fun and practical activities such as cooking, drawing, dancing or playing are just as valuable to a child's development as the activities provided here.
Above all else, be sure you and your child get enough sleep, eat well and be good to yourselves in general at this difficult time.

Children's Mental Health Support
Please see the information below for a range of mental health support links which are available. This list has been created by Warwickshire's RISE service. Please remember that whilst we are still here to support all our Oakfield families and if you have any worries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact either Mr Hickling, Mr Burrows or send an email to our firstname.lastname@example.org email address and we will do everything we can to support you and your family.
Rise is a family of NHS-led services providing emotional wellbeing and mental health services for children and young people in Coventry and Warwickshire.
Rise aims to build resilience and empower children and young people (as well as the adults in their lives) to know where to go for help and advice.
It’s made up of a number of different services, each led by mental health specialists.
This maths block is all about learning to tell the time. It follows on from the money block in the last pack.
The learning below is broken up into steps. Each step has a teaching PowerPoint which you can use to aid understanding, as well as a simple worksheet and a slightly trickier reasoning worksheet.
The sheets are organised according to ability. Your child will be familiar with the symbols displayed on each sheet as they have done similar work in class.
Steps 7-10 to follow in the coming weeks, so please check again soon!
White Rose Maths
If you are looking for opportunities to deliver any further maths learning, White Rose Maths is a fantastic scheme which teachers use as part of their planning to create lessons. On their website you can find the Year 3 scheme of learning and click on the area which you wish to focus on. Within this area you will find a whole teaching sequence including questions and resources. https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/schemes-of-learning/primary-sols/
The reading pack focuses on comprehension and building habits that make a confident and keen reader. What follows is a series of short stories with questions to check understanding. Ideally your child should read the story and answer the questions, however you may also choose to read the story together before your child answers the questions on their own.
Please make sure you are also reading to your child, when possible.
Reading to your child will help them to enjoy reading, to build their comprehension skills, and to become a confident reader themselves.
Children benefit from listening to books that they can’t read themselves yet, as they will see and hear adventurous language and ideas that they might not have encountered in their independent reading.
For stories to share with your child, take a look at this storytelling playlist on the Oxford Owl YouTube channel.
Asking your child questions can help them to think about what they’re reading. Try to ask open questions that begin with ‘how’ and ‘why’. See if your child can go back to the text and pictures to tell you how they know the answer.
Here are some links to online reading quizzes which can be done on a computer, tablet or phone. They are a lot of fun!
In addition to these resources, here are some ideas for reading activities you could do at home. Why not take some pictures and stick them in your exercise book?
The writing and grammar section focuses mainly on storytelling, as this was the focus of our next mini-mission. See below for the resources. Included are some story prompts and planning, as well as some sentence level work. Children are also welcome to do their own writing, below are some writing-based ideas to keep them busy!
