Year 3 Home Learning Friday 26.2.21

So we have almost completed our first week of Term 4, we hope that you have had a good week so far.   We would just like to remind you all that next Thursday is World Book Day, if you would like to dress up as a book character you can but this is your choice and there in no expectation that you have to.  You may also like to find or talk about a favourite book that you would like to share with the class on that day. 


L.O: To be able to convert between pounds and pence. 

Today we are going to continue learning about money. When we are handling money, we often need to convert between pennies and pounds.  How many pennies do you think are in one pound?

If you are joining us for the live lesson, it would be useful to have the conversion table (attached to the bottom of the blog) with you. Either print it out or copy it onto a piece of paper. If you miss the live teaching or want to go over anything again, have a look at the attached PowerPoint.

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

Yellow Challenge: Download the yellow maths challenge document – Look at the images of the coins. Write down the total amount of coins in each row. Remember to record the amount as £ and p. 

Blue Challenge: Download the blue maths challenge document – Look at the images of the coins. Write down the total amount of coins in each row. Remember to record the amount as £ and p.

English  - Guided Reading  

L.O. I am becoming more familiar with a wide range of books, including fairy stories, myths and legends.  I can retell some of these orally.

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to be exploring the story of Hansel and Gretel (the version we are reading is written by Tasha Guenther and illustrated by Leanne Guenther, it is based on the German fairy tale first collected by the Brothers Grimm).  In the live lesson we will be reading through the text together, we will then be exploring and discussing the tasks so that you can go on to write your answers independently after the lesson.  For today’s lesson we would like you to work through each of the challenges. You can find the text on the PowerPoint slides if you wanted to look over it again.


Blue – Write sentences to describe each character.

Green – Write a brief summary of what has happened in the story so far.

White – Have a go at retelling the story so far to a grown up.


Challenge – You could make a prediction as to what you think will happen next in the story!



R.E Task

L.O. To know that Lent is a time when Christians remember the temptations Jesus faced.

Today we are going to be learning about Lent. 

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, which is the day after Pancake Day. It is the start of a very important time in the Christian Calendar. Lent leads up to Easter, the time that Christians remember Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Firstly, we would like you to explore the PowerPoint slides about Lent called Lent Presentation.  When you have done that you can also have a look at the second PowerPoint that shows some more information about Lent called When is Lent.  


To draw a picture showing one of the temptations that Jesus was faced with.  Then write sentences to explain what is happening in your picture. You could repeat this for the other temptations if you have time.

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