Autumn Term Home Learning
We understand that there may be times where you need to isolate at home. In order to help you keep learning, we have created a home-learning plan for the Autumn term.
Our Learning Letter can be found here: Year 3 Autumn Term Home Learning Letter
Maths Home Learning
This term’s learning is focused on place value in numbers to 1000, as well as addition and subtraction up to 3-digits. We have included White Rose activity sheets and the associated video links for each lesson. Listen and watch the video before you complete the activity. If you don’t have a printer, you can copy out the questions onto a sheet of paper.
Video activity: numbers to 1000 on a place value grid. For this activity you could have a go at using your own grid at home. You could use coins or different pasta shapes to represent place value counters 100s, 10s and 1s

We have also attached links to additional challenges that support the Year 3 maths curriculum. The challenges are designed to support children in revising skills, while deepening and strengthening maths skills to a mastery level.
Some questions may require a lot of trial and improvement. It may not be right first time. That’s ok. It is important to keep trying.

Spring Term 2020
Year 3 have been busy at the start of 2020 with a range of art work to brighten up our winter walls. Our topic – More Than Pyramids – will give us lots of opportunities for cross curricular learning. We will compare the ancient civilizations of the Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Sumerians, Indus Valley and the Shang Dynasty. We shall explore their ways of life including their belief systems, farming, inventions, writing, and death rituals.
You can see our Spring 2020 curriculum here: Year 3 – Spring Curriculum 2020
In Maths, we will focus on:
- Multiplication and division
- Measurement; with a focus on Money
It is important that your child knows their multiplication tables and the related division facts. They should already have a secure knowledge of the 2, 5 and 10 times-tables from year two. This year we are also learning the 3, 4 and 8 times-tables. We will apply our knowledge of these tables to a range of problems, including related multiplication facts and multiplying two-digit numbers. Please talk to us if you need ideas for supporting your child with their times-tables.
