Welcome to Dove Bank

Year 3

   Welcome to Year Three’s Class PageHome Learning

It’s now just over 3 weeks since school closed for most children and I would like to thank you for all the effort that has been made to stay at home and still continue to try to learn through home learning. 

I appreciate, these are very challenging and are uncertain times, but please do try to do the best you can to keep up with the home learning. 

Miss Robinson, Mrs Machin and myself miss all of you so much and it really makes us smile when we hear from you on PurpleMash or by email from your parents. Please keep it up. 

Recently, I sent out an email to parent with a list of resources that the Government had published to help with home learning and I have posted the link below. In addition, I have attached the one that I collated during the first week of school closure – Useful websites.


Useful websites

From the 20th April, we have decided to use a consistent format across the school for home learning and we will post the home learning on here as well as email it. Our aim is to avoid too much printing at home and to encourage you to use the exercise books to record in that were sent home when school closed. Please can children do any maths work in their blue book and any other work in their red lined book. Do feel free to glue things in. I would recommend the children recording the date for their work. 

This week’s learning is below.

Stay Safe and I hope to see you in school soon.

Home Learning for Week 4

Tasks have been set on PurpleMash, Reading Eggs and Times Tables Rock Stars for you to have a go at. 

A suggestion for structuring the day, but please do what best fits with your family. 


Maths Warm Ups

Aim to do 1 each day and try to record in your blue maths exercise book. 


Daily Maths

Days 1-3 are practical activities. Use the maths activities booklets links, if you would prefer something less practical. Again, aim to record in your blue maths exercise book rather than printing.

Reading Books

Please encourage your child to read their reading book at home and also  write a comment in their Home School  Link book. We recommend hearing your child read in Year Three for a minimum of 3 times a week for at least 10 minutes. Books will be changed when children have comments in their book and confidently read the book as well as answer questions about it. 

Reading is so much more than being able to say the text. 

Some tips to help your child with reading

  1. Ask them to reread a page, so that they internalise the text and can summarise what they have read. 
  2. Encourage your child to reread after blending or being told, so that they sound like a story teller or a narrator.
  3. Help your child develop their vocabulary by asking what words mean or to find a word that means your word or phrase.
  4. Encourage your child to read to punctuation. At each full stop, pause and take a breath. This is the same for commas and questions marks. Exclamation marks, should show some change in how things are said depending on the emotion that is felt by the character.
  5. Discuss the features of a non fiction pages and books.
