Y3 have had an amazing Superhero day! We have been very creative! We started our day with a Superhero writing task, completed superhero times tables quiz and have created some amazing eggs for our competition this afternoon!
Y3 have amazed us with their marvellous map skills this half term. We have been looking at the UK focusing on cities, rivers that flow in to our surrounding seas and mountains. We have had lots of fun finding out how to use maps and follow travel lines using a compass to get from one part of the U.K. to another.
In Year 3, we had so much fun celebrating Harton Primary School’s 10th birthday and raising money for Red Nose Day. We had a fun packed day including decorating our own biscuits, dancing along to music on the speakers, playing party games and most importantly completing the Harton Primary Kahoot Quiz. We thoroughly enjoyed our celebrations and we certainly will not forget this special birthday!
Our school competed against other schools in South Tyneside at the start of February. For one week, we played on Times Tables Rock Stars trying to gain the most answers correct, both individually and as a school. We were extremely successful! Our school were the winners, scoring the highest most accurate answers, as well as 3 of our children being the top scorers in the competition. We are so proud of everyone who joined in and helped us with this achievement. Fantastic!
Good Morning Year 3! We hope you all had a lovely half term and are ready for hotting up your maths skills this week with a new topic! We will be starting our Length and Perimeter unit where you will compete lots of different measuring tasks.
Warm Up: Play TopMarks measuring in CM to help your measuring skills become accurate! https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/measuring-in-cm
Today you will begin by watching the video link and using your worksheet in your pack or attached below to measure in centimetres, mm and meters.
Your English lesson today will be live at 10am so you must join to be taught by your teachers – the recording of this will then be uploaded onto your Google Classroom for you to refer back to whilst you are completing your task.
To know what a synonym is.
I can choose appropriate synonyms.
I can use a thesaurus to find synonyms.
Today we will be using an online thesaurus to find synonyms for boring adjectives that describe well know characters.
Your Task: We expect around 5 adjectives with 5 different synonyms to go with the original adjective.
Rank synonyms from lest powerful to most powerful maybe use colour shading to show how one is good but 5 is amazing!
You will then turn them into sentences to check the synonym you have chosen is appropriate and you understand the meaning.
We are starting a brand new topic this half term called Light and Dark. Today our learning objective is to know that we need light to see things, and that dark is the absence of light.
Your first activity is going to be the ‘Light Source Sorting Game’ accessed via your Google Classroom . You can either print or simply write down which of the cards are sources of light and which ones are not.
Main Activity- You are going to complete the attached worksheet on your Google Classroom by filling in the missing blanks. This will be on all the things you have learnt today. If you can not print the sheet you can write the sentences out in your best handwriting!
Enjoy! Send your fabulous work to [email protected] 🙂
The teachers have been set a challenge! We have put together a video that we hope will make you smile. Best wishes to all for a happy half term!
Good Morning Year 3! We have made it to half term! Well done for completing some fantastic work this half term – your teachers are super proud of you!
Starter: One Studio and One Soundcheck on TT Rockstars!
Today we will be focusing on tables – not TT Rockstar ones!
Tables can be used as another way to represent data. We can use a table to quickly see how many of a certain item was counted.
Watch today’s video which will explain how we can use tables to represent this data.
Worksheet: Complete the worksheet looking at different tables and answer the questions to interpret them.
Well done for completing some fabulous work this week with your story writing. Today is going to be the last day of work on our unit Myths and Legends where we have been focusing on the text Beowulf. I know you have all enjoyed this topic and produced some fabulous work!
Today, your task is to write the ending of your story. The ending of the story brings everything in the story to an end and makes sure the problem of the story has been fixed.
Think about the follow questions for the ending of your stories:
– What has changed?
– Has your character died?
– Was there a celebration?
Today, in the ending of your story, your teachers are looking for you to include the following features:
– Exciting adjectives
– A range of sentence openers
– Powerful verbs
Can you challenge yourself to use a simile and speech in your work? Your teachers would be so impressed!
Send your amazing stories to [email protected] or upload your work to google classroom 🙂 Enjoy your day!

There are a wealth of resources available online to continue to support all of our children with their reading during school closures. Please use the following links.
This is an app which can be downloaded onto a phone or tablet and used if you have a library membership where you can access a wide range of ebooks and audiobooks. All you need to do is input yours or your child’s library card number and PIN. This takes minutes to set up.
Create your own free account and you can browse a wide range of their books in ebook and audiobook version. You can select books by your child’s age range. This is also a reading scheme we use in school.

This gives a parent login and then you can browse their available ebooks and there are related printable worksheets linked to most books. This is also a reading scheme we use in school.
Good morning Year 3. Well done for producing some amazing work yesterday with the beginning of your story. Today we are going to be continuing our mythical story and writing the middle of the story.

In your work today your teachers would like to see the following:
