Primary School

Year 3 Home Learning Wednesday 10.2.21

Well done on all of your hard work so far this week year 3! Here are some more tasks for you. You might also like to have a look at the safer internet day blog and use the resources there. 

English Task 

LO: To be able to write descriptive ideas.

The palace wants to thank George for capturing the dragon and enabling the princess to escape.

They are starting to plan a celebration event!

Task One - Write a list of food that will be prepared and served at the party.

Task Two – Write a list of other things that would need to be bought / organised – for example, how the party hall will be decorated and entertainment.

In both the above tasks, consider these levels of challenge

Blue - use adjectives,

Green - use alliteration

White - use some similes


Task Three (following the live lesson) – Make the invitation that the King and Queen send to George.

Include colour / illustrations and remember to include details of where, when and what time the party will be – you decide. Also, include a little detail about what the party will involve (but not too much as you will be writing more about the party tomorrow). Try to use some formal language as this invitation is coming from the palace!


Maths Task

L.O: To learn to divide 2 digit numbers by a 1 digit number

On Thursday and Friday last week, we used items from home or place value counters to help us divide a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number. We are going to continue with this today so hopefully you have found some different items to help you divide or you have printed some place value counters from Monday’s blog.

Using your items or place value counters, have a go at solving these division calculations. Remember sometimes, you will need to exchange ten or more tens counters for ten ones.

  1. 66 ÷ 2 =
  2. 42 ÷ 3 =
  3. 28 ÷ 4 =

Now, have a go at solving 47 ÷ 3 =

Remember, you need to share your tens and ones into 3 equal groups. Do you have any left over? How many? Can you remember the name we use for the items that are left over? Here is the division sentence – 47 ÷ 3 = 15r2

Now have a go at solving these division calculations, using your tens and ones to help you:

  1. 25 ÷ 2 =
  2. 33 ÷ 2 =
  3. 43 ÷ 3 =

If you miss the live teaching or want to go over anything again, have a look at the attached PowerPoint. It introduces you to the bus stop method. Make sure you press slideshow, so you can see the animations. You will be using the bus stop method for the white challenge.

For your independent task, you can choose your own level of challenge. Your resources are attached at the bottom of the blog.  

Blue Challenge: Download the blue, green and white challenge document – Have a look at the table and answer the blue questions. These answers do not have remainders.

Green Challenge: Download the blue, green and white challenge document – Have a look at the table and answer the green questions. These answers do have remainders. 

White Challenge: Download the blue, green and white challenge document – Have a look at the table and answer the white questions. Please use the bus stop method to answer these calculations.  



LO – To be physically active.

Here is the next link for the PE lesson!

We hope that you are enjoying keeping active and that you are able to find some time to do some exercise each week.  

Do whatever exercise you enjoy. It could be playing football in your garden with your family, going for a walk, riding your bike, dancing with your friends on a video call… The choice is yours!

It is just important to keep active!


French Task

LO – To be able to count to 12 and say my age in French

We hope you enjoyed the French lesson last week. This week, you will have the opportunity to revise numbers up to 12. You will then use this knowledge to learn how to say your age.

Why don’t you have a go at teaching the new vocabulary you have learnt to an adult at home. Let us know how you get on!  

The children in school will be completing this lesson on Thursday.


Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Mrs Bromley, Mrs Coaten and Mrs Kenny.
