In  Year 3, we need to practise counting in hundreds.

Here are two links to help you practise:


Have a think about the place value.

Which numbers change when adding 1? 10? 100?

We are now safe to surf.

For the first four weeks of term we have thought carefully about how we can stay safe online.  We know that if we find anything that makes us uncomfortable we need to close the laptop lid and TELL a teacher. 
We have started to use Goolge as a search engine to help us find the information.  We now know that websites may pay to get to the top of the list so we need to be careful about which links we follow. 

During the year we will keep revisiting these safe surfing skills and not just in computing.

Safer searching skills.

WALT – use the internet to find information.

Using what we have learnt in class use the internet to find out the answers to these questions.

Remember when you find the information can you trust the website?  Is it fact or Opinion?


Search Engine, Key, Term, Result


  • Safe Searching Skills.
  • Use a search engine.
  • Put in key search terms.

Can you find me:-

1.A website with information about deadly snakes.
2.A website that gives you information about the  World War II.
3.A website that gives information about the NASA trip to Mars with a robot.
4.A useful website to practice your times tables on.



At the end of web adresses there are extensions but what  do they mean? – This extension means the website is a school (sch) in the United Kingdom (uk)

Can you find out what the other ones mean?  You can ask an adult OR even use a safe web search.

Login – Find the blog!

Today in Computing we had to learn to login as Year 3!  When we were in KS1 we had no password – now we are LKS2 we have to learn one!  Once we logon we will need to find the blog so we can practise our maths skills.

We will need to try logging on all on our own using our own computer.  REMEMBER the password is on the board to copy- make sure the Caps Lock button isn’t on (Warning Triangle)  and that the login says LKS2.

At the need of the lesson we need to turn the computer off, BUT NOT WITH THE LIT BUTTON!  We need to use the start circle.

Challenge 1 – In Science, we have been learning how water is transported in plants and discussed how we could prove this. If you would like to try this experiment at home, click on the link below to find out how to do this. Write your findings on a piece of paper and bring them into school – this will help with our Science lessons.

Year 3 homework WB 19.06.17

Hi Year 3!

Because we are still continuing  to travel to Sidney Stringer, your homework is not going to be given on paper – it will be on here instead.

English –  this week in English we have been learning about the rules of speech within a narrative. Your task this week is to write a conversation between the Stone Age boy and another character of your choice. Remember, he travels back in time so your character of choice must be someone from history e.g. Winston Churchill, Tutankhamun etc.


Maths – this week in Maths we have been learning all about money. Your task is to complete either of these tasks (or both if you are super star!)

  1. Go to the shop with your parents. When you or you parents purchase something, you must work out the change before you receive it. Check if you’re right. How close were you? This is a chance for you to use money in real life.
  2. How many different ways can you make £10?
    Challenge – rather than using £ coins, try using smaller coins
