Home Learning


I have learnt some very interesting facts about rainforest animals this week, as well as how important it is to protect the rainforest. We also have one member of our class who has earned an impressive 91 points off the home learning grid so far this term!


More rainforest-inspired home learning coming in this week - we are building a truly impressive collection of rain sticks! 


We've had some brilliant home learning come in following the half term - the children are becoming so confident when presenting in front of the class.


Here is the last of our home learning from this half term - it has been great to have such a mix of children trying a variety of tasks and getting to learn or practice different skills. We certainly have some talented artists in the class, as well as some excellent story-tellers (perhaps future authors?!)


We saw some more fantastic home learning this week, including from some children who had not done show and tell before! That didn't hold them back through, the quality of the children's presentations has improved so much this year, as well as their ability to ask and answer questions of one another. Well done Year 3!


Here is the home learning from this week - some children have made a great start on their grids and are racking up the points already from their home learning grids. Some others have some catching up to do!


Some more fantastic and creative home learning has come in this week - including some interesting looking and smelling 'rainforest potions'. The children has certainly been inspiring each other with what they've been bringing in - keep it up!


I'm delighted to share the first pieces of home learning from our new topic Canopy Capers, all about the rainforest. Some of the class have found the time to be introduced to the topic and get creative over the Easter break, well done!


Our last pieces of home learning from this term - it has been a fantastic topic and the children have made some wonderfully creative and interesting things that have expanded their understanding of Ancient Egypt. Well done Year 3!


Here are the pieces of home learning we've had in the last couple of weeks. The children are doing brilliantly in their presentations and are becoming more confident and articulate. This weekend is the last chance to make something before the new learning grid comes out next Friday - what will you be making?


A plea from Miss Kertesz for more home learning please! We have three weeks left with this home learning grid on our fabulous topic of Ancient Egypt before we move on to Canopy Capers, but we have not had much coming in so far this term. Let's see what you can produce over these last few weeks.


More home learning completed over the half term - our corridor display is looking fantastic!



WOW! The class have exceeded my expectations and we have had a busy week of show and tell with more to come. Well done to everyone who's been working hard on their home learning!


This has been a slightly different week with fewer children in school, so there's not quite as much home learning to share. However, I'm sure that with a few days learning from home next week there may be many more exciting things to come...


This week has brought with it model mummies, canopic jars, hieroglyphs galore and an expert powerpoint presentation - keep it up Year 3!


I am delighted to say that the first week of term has brought some very enthusiastic children ready to get stuck in to their new home learning grids. A big well done to everyone who has made a start already, I can't wait to see what next week brings!


Our last bits of home learning from this term. Well done to everyone who brought things in, and in particular to Verity who earned over 50 house points this term by completing her home learning!!

I look forward to seeing what our Tomb Raiders can produce next term!


Even more brilliant home learning to share and the children are doing so well with their 'show and tell', gaining confidence speaking in front of the class. Only three weeks to go - what else can you make?


Some more of the fantastic home learning sent in since the half term break, including our biggest and most detailed model yet! Time is counting down though until the end of term - can you make time to complete some more before it's too late?


Another big well done to everyone who's brought in home learning so far this term - I have loved seeing how creative you can be with the different challenges. Half term is the perfect time to get on with some more, I'm excited to find out what the next half of term will bring!


I feel like the standard of home learning has been raised recently. We've had some simply amazing models as well as some impressive powerpoint presentations. Well done Year 3!


Our first month of school has brought some impressive home learning - well done to all those children! It's been lovely hearing them do show and tell in front of the class and sharing new and interesting facts about the Stone Age.


Even more brilliant home learning to share - we've had quizzes, pictures, 3D models, cooking and even fabric dying! Well done to all those bringing their work in and earning house points, I look forward to seeing more and building on our Stone Age learning.


Well done to all those children who bought in some fantastic pieces of home learning already this term. I look forward to seeing what else you can make!
