Woodpecker Class (Year 3)

Week beginning 18th May 2020


Good morning Woodpeckers!


I hope you’ve all been having a nice time at home this week.  I was in school for two days last week and we did some work to do with the jungle, which was very interesting.

I have added some maths work this week about shape, and I have also put up the White Rose worksheets from Week 4.  If you want to use these worksheets, there are videos on the White Rose website which explain the worksheets before you complete them https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/


I have added some grammar sheets about where sentences start and stop.  There are also two new reading comprehension activities – one is about garden birds and one is about Greece.  Don’t forget there are some grammar tests on SPAG.com that a lot of people haven’t done yet! Remember you can also go onto pobble365.com to find some images to inspire your writing, just like in the English story writing task I set a few weeks ago – perhaps you could do the same this week but choose your own image this time?


BBC Bitesize and Oak Academy have new lessons this week as well, so be sure to have a look at them!


Please keep sending me emails and tweets (@woodpeckery3) letting me know what you’ve been up to!

Hope you and your families are all keeping well,

Miss Howell

What we've been doing in lockdown!

Welcome to Woodpecker Class!

Dear Parents/Guardians,


The children have settled into Key Stage 2 extremely well and seem to be enjoying their learning in Year 3, along with some of the perks that come with being in Key Stage 2!


The children will bring home their Home Learning books each Friday. Please encourage your child to complete one piece of homework each week. They need to hand their homework in on a Thursday and I will hand it back to them the next day.  The home learning tasks are in the front of their books, and are available to look at on our class page.  It is really important for children to also have the opportunity to read at home, even if it is just for 10 minutes.  Reading little and often can really help with all of their school work!


We are encouraging the children to bring a water bottle into school as they do get thirsty throughout the day and drinking little and often can aid their concentration. We also don’t want to disturb KS1 and that is where the water fountain is.


The children will need their PE kits for PE with Onside on a Wednesday afternoon and they will need their swimming kit on a Friday.


Children need to bring a coat into school, especially on a Friday when we have been swimming.


If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to speak to me at the end of the school day.


Kind regards,


Miss Howell
