Hi 3W! Here is Week 2's Learning Grid. Some great ideas to find out more about The Romans.

Here are week 2's activities. There are three grids for you to look at. The first one has ideas for Mathematical activities. The next one has Literacy based activities and the final one has a few challenges. Don't forget to read as much as you can! Enjoy!


Hi 3W! Take a look at the knowledge organiser and curriculum overview for Summer 1. This is what we would have been learning about had we still been in school. Our topic is called 'What the Romans Did For Us'.


The BBC are starting to support home learning even more this week. Please use the link below to access a huge amount of resources and videos. Hopefully this will help explain some of the tricky learning we do in Year 3 and make things much easier for families to support home learning.

Why don't you teach someone a game today?


Here are some games we play in class at wet break:


1. Flip cup nought and crosses

2. Battleships



Hello again!


Remember, you don't need to do school work 9am - 3pm. Why don't you try doing some worksheets in the morning and being more creative in the afternoon? Maybe a poster about magnetism, you could take a picture of it then ask a grown up to send it to Cedars Primary School on facebook.


Mr Watkinson


I'm glad the sun is shining again, hope you're all managing to do some exercise every day. (Safely of course!)

Week commencing 30.03.20. Here are some writing templates and pictures for you to practice your super sentences. Remember to add adverbs, conjunctions and expanded noun phrases. If you don't like these pictures, find a photograph from a holiday or a picture from a magazine to write about in your homework book.

I hope you are all finding something to read (It doesn't have to be a book from school, it can be anything!)


Morning everyone, hope you are all well.


Please keep looking at the home learning pages on our website, they are added to daily.


Well done Humairah - you are using our new 3W blog. Join in if you can 3W and we can start a conversation!


Mr Watkinson



Hello 3W!


Hope you're all staying safe and not missing your friends too much. I've been busy so here goes:


Our home learning packs have been saved on the Home Learning Packs page.


Lots of educational and entertaining websites have also been saved there.


I've set up 2blog on Purple Mash so you can now safely chat to each other online. 


I've set up lots of activities on my maths as well.


Our Home Learning Overview has also been saved below.


Any issues please use 2blog to send me a message. 


Mr Watkinson

Here is an overview of work set by Y3 teachers.




Hope you're all staying safe, washing your hands and looking after everyone else in your house. 


I thought I'd give you a few updates:

1. See below for home learning links. 

2. See the PE page for new PE links.


And finally a note for the grown ups in your house...


3. I've been home schooling my children (age 6 and age 8) for the last few days. I've been doing three 30 minute sessions of learning in the morning which covers reading, writing, maths and other topics. Long breaks with snacks between the sessions and finishing at 11.30 for an early lunch. In the afternoon we've been more creative, art activities, den building and being outside safely.  We've also been doing chores including, washing up, changing their own beds and cleaning my car!


My point is, do what you can with your child, keep it short and keep it as relaxed as possible. Enjoy your learning.

Homework is set in the normal way however I've not sent a spellings sheet home as it was sent before the holidays (ei words, e.g. eight).         Have a great weekend. Mr Watkinson

Anti-Bullying in 3W

We discussed what information we should share when we go online.


Mrs Sames and I chose this as when we taught E-safety earlier in the year we struggled to understand that people are not always honest online and we need to protect ourselves.




We created poppies this afternoon as we discussed sacrifice. 3W observed the 2 minute silence impeccably during the morning session.



As you know homework is already in books. I've set new homework on mymaths (a recap of Y2 division and moving onto Y3 division) as well as a multiplication challenge on purple mash. 

See you at Parents' Evening,


Mr Watkinson


Homework is set in the normal way. It was glued into books last half term and I have saved new electronic homework on purple mash and my maths. New spelling sheets were also glued in on Thursday. Sheets have also been handed out to those pupils who needed them. 


Finally, we've had quite a lot of lost jumpers. Please make sure you write your name in your child's jumper. We are doing our best at school to locate jumpers. 




New homework etc. has been glued in for next half term and set on purple mash and my maths. 


Have a restful and enjoyable break.


A few children have lost jumpers recently. I have personally checked everyone's jumper and the lost property boxes at Cedars. We have found what was there and returned all we could. Please label your children's clothes. When I did the jumper check most jumpers did not have names in and pupils resorted to sniffing them to figure out whose jumper was whose!!! 


Mr Watkinson



Homework is set in the normal way!


The Purple Mash homework might take a while so I've set it for the half term as well.


Mr Watkinson



Just the weekly reminder homework is set in the normal way, it is already glued into their books, new online homework has been set and a new spelling sheet has been handed out. When helping your child with their spellings please discuss the spelling patterns. (Last week was 'sure' and this week is 'ture')


Thank you, 


Mr Watkinson

Useful documents for Autumn 1 (September - October 2019) Homework, Overview and Knowledge Organiser

September 2019 - Bonkers for Conkers!


It has been another great week. Rehearsing for the sing up project yesterday was definitely a highlight.


Homework is set in the normal way. (My maths, purple mash, reading, spellings and the usual sheet.)


To cancel last year's my maths homework I had to cancel all tasks so I've reset the previous two week's homework as well. You don't need to do it again if you've done it already!


Mr Watkinson



Homework is set again in the normal way.


Homework expectations are the same as Year 2,

  • please read with your child (5 mins),
  • help with spellings (talking or writing),
  • guide them as needed online
