'Believe to Achieve'

Week 3

Monday's positive quote:

YOU are capable of amazing things. We believe in YOU.


We hope you have had a lovely Easter break and have enjoyed being creative at home. We are sad that we can't see you today to begin the new school term but we wanted to let you know how proud we are of you and all the hard work you have been putting in at home.

Today's challenges are;


1) Maths- Column addition.

Can you solve the column addition problems below? If you are unsure of how to set your column addition out, watch Mrs Bragg's video to help you ( Watch it here:


a) 234 +162 =

b) 721 +222 =

c) 257 + 244=

d) 497 + 444 =


Fancy a challenge?

Don't forget that exchanging is when you move a ten over and place it under the next column. For example in Mrs Bragg's video she had 5 + 9 = 14 so she had to exchange the 10 (14= 10+4) and move it into the tens column.


2) English - sort the words challenge on Purple Mash!

Don't forget to save your work under your class and name so your teachers can see that you have completed the challenge.


Want to try something new?

Think back to our gymnastic lessons. Can you create different movements where you have 5 body points touching the ground? What about 4 body points of even 3?


Let us know how you get on :)  


Happy Monday Year 3!


Have a go at these grammar and punctuation challenges. 


Miss you all! From Mrs Carter :)

Happy Wednesday!

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth day

'Try and leave the Earth in a better way than when you arrived'


Below you will find lots of activities that you can do based on Earth day. 


1) Scavenger hunt

Why don't you go for a walk in you local area. Can you find any of the natural things on the checklist below? Did you find anything that was not on the checklist?

2) Outdoor art

Can you collect some natural objects from your garden or your walk. Can you use these natural objects to create a piece of artwork such as the ones in the pictures below?

Tip: You could use twigs to create a frame for your picture.


3) Recyclable craft

We all know the importance of recycling to help maintain a sustainable Earth. Can you use some recyclable items in your house to create some crafts.

Some ideas are;

-Using tins or plastic bottles to create plant pots for inside or outside

-Using cartons or yogurt pots to create bird feeders for your garden

-Using buttons or bottle tops to create handing ornaments for plants/ trees

What else can you think of?


4) Poster

The theme for Earth day this year is 'climate action'. Can you complete some research and design a poster to show what we can do to help combat climate change?

Think about;

-The search and need for palm oil and the effects on the rainforests and orangutans

-The melting ice caps and the impact this has on Polar Bears and other wildlife.

-Soaring temperatures and the effect this has on wild fires such as the ones we learnt about in Australia


You can complete your poster on any other the themes given to you or one of your own choice!




Happy Earth Day from Mrs Carter!

Today's positive quote


Dream beautiful dreams, and then work to make those dreams come true.


The activities today include:

1) Maths

You only have 500 tokens to spend at the funfair, and you are only able to go on two rides. How many different combinations can you find?

2) English

Complete the reading task below. This is very similar to a cold read we complete in school, so read through the text carefully before answering the questions. Remember the answers are hidden in the text, so you need to skim and scan for key words to help you find the answer. 

Your second English task is to find four synonyms for the following words. 

3) Science- Light

Take a look at yesterday's BBC bitesize Science lesson 


In the video they explore light, and how dark is the absence of light. See if you can complete one of the activities below.

2) Take a walk around your house and see how many light sources you can find. 


3) Shine a torch light on the following objects and make a note of what you find.

   - a glass of water - transparent object (tissue paper, clear plastic)

   - a glass of water - translucent object (sunglasses, fabric)
