Week Beginning 30th March:
  • We know quite a bit about the River Nile through our classwork on Egypt. Can you find out about ten other rivers of the world and create a 'Top-Trumps' style card game? 
    • Cut out 10 identical rectangles out of paper or thin card or print off the template I've saved in documents below . Write the name of each river you have found out about on the cards and illustrate them. Add information such as: length, depth, width, number of countries it flows through etc. If Y3 and Y4 all make a set of cards, you could contact your friends and play Virtual Top Trumps!!
  • Science this week is all about heating and cooling. Mrs Lord suggests making crispy cakes ready for Easter. Use either crisped rice cereal or shredded wheat (this looks more like a bird's nest ready for Easter eggs). Discuss what has happened to the chocolate at different stages of the process. Don't forget to taste test and send photos!


  • Find out about the Easter story and write and illustrate your own version, creating a short book. If your parents / carers agree, you could film yourself reading the book you've made. I can then put your recording on our class page for everyone to listen to!


  • Finally, continue with any of the tasks that you were unable to complete last week - Miss Mason's Ancient Egyptian quiz; Mr Gee's computing task; and Mrs Lord's research task on Edward Jenner and Alexander Fleming. Use your pupil login to access the homework section on our school website (school spider) for more detail.


Hello Year 3s,
I hope you are all keeping safe and well.
Keep looking at this class page each week to keep you up-to-date with your online curriculum throughout our closure. I will post activities, weblinks, paper-based and online tasks to enable you to make progress alongside the rest of the class.
Don't forget to complete the weekly activities we have planned for you on EducationCity. You were all given your logins at school and you should find the English and maths tasks under 'Class Work'. Any completed activities allow you to print a certificate and will notify me of your progress.
TTRockstars is still a fantastic resource to help you progress with your understanding of multiplication and division. Mrs Lord will monitor whether you are accessing it regularly and see if you have progressed to the next level. Your login for this website was also sent home.
Reading each day is extremely important too. Keep a list of the titles you read, and enjoy exploring new authors, exciting characters and fascinating settings. Remember: reading ebooks, listening to audio books and being read to is just as important!
Please do send any work or photographs to me via School Spider or email me at hannahbours@castleprimary.co.uk - I shall look forward to see what you get up to!
Mrs Bours.
