Home Learning - Week of the 1st of June
This page will be updated weekly (during term time) with different lesson activities for pupils to engage with.
Children are expected to start their mornings with some PE with Joe Wicks on his youtube channel (scroll down for details). They are also expected to complete tasks for Literacy and Maths each day, spending around 30 minutes per lesson.
Additionally, children are to complete tasks for a foundation subject (Science, History/Geography, RE) alongside their Literacy and Maths each day.
They are expected to be accessing Purple Mash, Mathletics, Times Table Rockstars and Espresso to supplement their learning each day. The links to these can be found above.
Please note, certain lessons may have documents attached towards the bottom of the page. These will outline what tasks need to be completed and may provide worksheets too. You will also find a weekly spellings document attached.

Maths – Week Beginning 1st June 2020
This week we are going to focus on Time. In this Unit we will begin by revising what we have already learnt in Year 2 and then move on to the Year 3 curriculum.
We have added a Time Knowledge Organiser for you. This will really help you and it shows you everything that you should know by the end of Year 3. There is also a Mathletics book that you can print out and have a go at if you don’t want to do the sheets attached.
It will really help you to have an old clock that you can use or you can make one. This will be part of lesson 1.
Each lesson will have
- a brief introduction that tells you what to do
- some video clips to help you, or a grown up, understand what to do.
- Some independent work – this might be something that you have been told to do on the video or a written or practical activity.
Please upload some photos of what you have done on Weduc or email it to the Y3 email.
Open the Maths documents dated 01.06.20 (found towards the bottom of this page) and
you will find detailed lessons, activities and the work for each day.
REMEMBER – there are also lots of activities that we will set you on Mathletics and there are also games on Espresso in addition to the links that we have set you to do.
Remember: Timestable Rockstars should be practised every day as well.

Bronze Age - WB 01.06.20
The Bronze Age was when people first worked out how to make bronze. Bronze is made up of at least two metals, usually copper and tin. The invention of bronze was important because it allowed people to make certain objects in a way that was much better than how they had been made previously.
Watch the video from ‘The Story of Britain’ to learn about life in the Bronze Age:https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/story-of-britain-bronze-age-britain/znrygwx

Global Citizenship Day
This year Grafton are celebrating Global Citizenship Day on the 4th June 2020.
Watch this introduction video to the Global Goals.
See what some young people around the world have done to help meet some of the goals.
Watch this video to get some ideas about how to get started:
This year we are focussing on what we can do to help meet
global goal 13 – climate action
Have a look at the sheet “Simple Ways to Save the Climate.”
Create either a poster, a booklet or a power point informing others how they can help to save the climate.
Then choose one way that you are going to help save the climate. Write down a statement saying what you are going to do and maybe put a photo of yourself holding the statement onto Weduc. Here’s an example statement.
“I commit to making sure I switch off the lights and screens when I am not using them and I will encourage my family to do the same.”
Please find the Global Citizenship Day document below.
Starting Monday 23rd March, the Body Coach (Joe Wicks) will be hosting a free workout aimed at kids LIVE on his YouTube channel. With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it's a great way keep moving and stay healthy and positive. The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even adults can get involved. You don't need any equipment, just tune in to his YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout.
He has also teamed up with BBC Children in Need as their Schools Ambassador and they have created some excellent Move videos. Great to use as they are simple and quick to pick up and can be used any time you and your children want to get moving and get energised.
real PE at home – online learning resources
