Year 3 - School Closure - Home Learning Area


Dear Y3 children and parents,


A very warm welcome to our Y3 Home Learning Area. On the PDF document below, you will find an outline of the learning tasks to be completed each week. I will endeavour to cover most areas of the National Curriculum and to provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum. A new document will be added each week, ready for the next Monday morning.


It is important that the children quickly get into an effective routine when completing their home learning tasks and I will provide an example timetable for you to use if helpful. 


As we are all finding our way with this new way of learning, I will ensure the tasks are relatively straightforward for the first few weeks to support the children in establishing their own personal structures and routines. In the longer term, it will be vital that the children experience a range of different learning styles. Some written work, some online learning, creative activities, and importantly, daily physical exercise. Some tasks will be more 'open-ended' allowing the children to investigate and explore a learning area, others will need formal written methods and careful presentation.


The children who were at school on Friday have been given a range of exercise books to use for their home learning. If you haven't picked up these books yet, please contact the school to arrange pick up. 


If at all possible, please support your child with their work. This could be as simple as checking their work is of a high standard at the end of a lesson, morning or day or asking them to explain their work to you as an informal assessment of learning.


When it is safe to return to school, I will be looking at the children's books and look forward to seeing some amazing quality learning with every child giving 100% and producing their very best work.


Dear Children,


I would love to see some of the work that you complete whilst at home. If you have done something that you are particularly proud of, you can email a photo or scan to me at:  


Parents can also use the email address above if needed and I'll reply as soon as possible.


On a personal note, I wish each and every one of you safety and love at this incredibly challenging time. Let's hope that we can create some positives from the all too apparent negatives, and look after each other as part of the extended St Luke's family.


Love and best wishes,


Mr Hill

Talk For Writing

As a Talk 4 Writing school, we place emphasis on children learning to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. Throughout the year, children will learn approximately 9-12 model texts. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions.


The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 3. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them.  Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

Topic Learning Autumn Term Two


This half term, our topic is Le MasterChef. We are looking forward to baking (and eating) our own French bread and thinking about healthy fillings as part of our D&T and Science learning. In Geography, we will be learning about Europe, with a particular focus on comparing an area in France with Hampshire. 

In Geography, we have been learning to use an Atlas to identify the countries and major capital cities in Europe.
