Home Learning (Week commencing 1/6/20)

Your English home learning this week is all about inspirational people; I've attached it below. Also, we've now got access to White Rose Maths, but it will be a little different than before. Below I've attached the worksheets you will need. You can still access the learning videos to go with them here ....


Have a go at them them and remember to let me know how you get on. 


Other Subjects Home Learning (Summer 2)

Below are some ideas for this half term of home learning. Have a look at each sub page to find some activities to complete. Once you’ve completed them either tweet them or send me an e-mail. 

Home Learning (week commencing 18/5/20)

Your home learning challenge for English is above! For maths, I would like you to visit website and practise your timestables every day! If possible, at the end of the week, try to complete the practise multiplication check, take a photo and email it to me with your result. Good luck!

Home Learning (week commencing 11.5.20)

Here is your English home learning for this week! For maths, I've uploaded some arithmetic tests to keep you going for the moment. If you are struggling with any of the questions let me know. Remember, if you need to you can draw symbols or use equipment (you might need to improvise or use money to help £1 = 100, 10p = 10 and 1p = 1) 

Home Learning (week commencing 5/5/20)

Another week at home and another week of learning from home.I hope you are all well.  Above is the link to your English learning for the week. This week is poetry - I can't wait to read some of your own poetry! Please also continue to look at White Rose Maths (the link is in previous week's learning) and please let me know if I can help with anything. 


Extra Challenge

This week marks the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. I wonder if you can find out what VE Day is and why it is so important. You could even create some art work, poetry or a Powerpoint. 



Home Learning (week commencing Monday 27th April)

Above is the English home learning for this week. I completely understand that it is tricky to do every part of this with your child with people working from home and other  tricky circumstances; they are used to working independently at times. Maybe you could make a short list of what they need to do to complete the task, which will leave you to work from home (or relax)! I would love to know your feedback and know how you're getting on with it. 
Please also continue to look at White Rose maths (same link as last week). Again, please let me know your feedback and how you are getting on. 

Home Learning (week commencing Monday 20th April)

Please find above the English home learning for next week. Make sure you send any work you complete to me and let me know how you get on. If you need any help, make sure you email me. 
Happy Easter Class 3! Enjoy watching your own Easter play! It made me so proud to watch it back again and it made me miss you all very much!  (Imagine what it would be like if we had extra two and a half weeks to practise!)

Take a look at our awesome poems based on Macavity, the Mystery Cat by T. S. Eliot

Arrthur the sailing cat

Arrthurs a sailing cat he’s called the pirate claw.

For he’s the pirate captain who can do so much more.

He’s the bafflement of other ships, the conquer of the water.

For when you see an empty ship, Arthur is there!


Arrthur Arrthur always sailing seas,

You hardly ever see him for he’s sailing with the breeze.

Arrthur Arrthur never off the water

For he’s secretly stealing sons and daughters.


Arrthur Arrthur boots as black as coal

Even darker then a black hole

Arrthur is a ginger cat hes tall and fin

Arrthur has a very small chin

Arrthurs head is domed

He loves his whiskers to be combed.


He’s very sharing (they say he’s the best at finding gold)

If you barging him it will never be sold.

Arrthur is tactical,

Also can be practical.

Arrthur loves to be a joker,

Did you know he’s really good at poker?

Arrthur has a crew of five,

They all can beat a bee hive.


Arrthur Arrthur he is best

Everyone knows he’s better than the rest

You know him if you saw him

Because his gold is not slim


If you went on a ship,

be careful you might take a dip.

His sword is sharp as a nail,

Arrthur is not as slow as a snail.


But whenever you see a ship,

Arrthur is there!!!


By Lexi Garrity

Romero the Archaeologist cat

Martha Sowerby

Romero’s an archaeologist cat; he’s called the master digger

For he’s a mini Einstein, his brain is so much bigger

He is super sensible; he always does what he’s told

Even when he’s in a hole, especially digging for gold

You will know him if you see him, for there will always be a breeze

And you will always catch him saying thank you and please


His fur is rough and spiky, he’s a tabby cat

He’s very tall and wide, he is rather fat

His big blue eyes are covered in mud

And when you see him walking you will always hear a thud


He’s confident in maths, [they say he’s the human sum]

And he’s good at music, he can play the drum

He loves going to school, he especially likes homework

He has a lot of friends but sometimes he’s a jerk

He hasn’t got much family but he loves his mum and dad

They are very kind; he has a sibling that is a lad

You will know him if you see him, for there will always be a breeze

And you will always catch him saying thank you and please


Romero, Romero there’s no one like Romero

He’s a handsome clever cat

And on his head he wears a top hat

You will know him if you see him, for there will always be a breeze

And you will always catch him saying thank you and please

We investigated the geography of Carnforth, thinking about its physical and human features, types of building and land use.

Combining our work on the local area with our sketching skills, we've tried to draw the school.

These are some of the sketches we did of objects in the classroom. We were working on our shading to add tone and texture to our pictures.

Today we had our visit to Leighton Moss to look at animal habitats. First of all we went pond dipping and identified the animals we caught. Then after lunch, we explored the nature reserve in an orienteering challenge.

Have a look at what we are doing over the next half term.

Our Easter play 'Good News!'

Class 3 took part in a Walk Through Easter event at Carnforth Congregational Church. We did some great activities and reflected on the meaning of Easter.

As part of our RE week on Welcoming the Stranger we wrote prayers for refugees.

Viking Rune Stones

Our overview for the second half of the Spring Term.

To help us write our own stories, based on Beowulf, we created monsters from modelling clay. We tried to find ambitious words to describe our creatures like muscular and venomous.

After reading the story of Beowulf, we created our own scene to explore the thoughts of the different characters. We had noble kings, brave warriors and downtrodden servants.

The Demon Headmaster

We have been studying the character of the Demon Headmaster. We drew what we thought he looked like based on the story and then wrote character descriptions.

These are some of our exciting sentences.


"His face was white and his cloak black, making him look like a magpie."


"He wears clothes as dark as midnight."


"He was as thin as a pencil."



Class 3 have been learning about Alfred the Great. We have made crowns and created a comic strip.
