Welcome to the Home Learning page for Year 3. During the school closure you can expect daily maths, English and SPAG tasks.  Some tasks will be pre-loaded for the week but you can expect daily tasks to be uploaded by 8:30am at the latest on the day they are needed (unless there are technical difficulties!). 

There will also be a range of tasks from other subject areas.  Children can choose what order they do these other tasks in.  We recommend doing two of these additional tasks each day. 

You can expect regular contact from members of staff during the school closure. This may be by email, Marvellous Me or by phone.  If the member of staff is calling from their own phone it will be a withheld number. 

Staff will check and respond to the year group email regularly and a member of staff will be available to respond directly between 1 and 2pm, Monday-Friday. 

Please email a photo of a piece of work your child has done each day to the year group email: year3@dovecote.school

Week 4 Home Learning

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Year 3.,

I hope that you are all well. It has been great to receive so many photos of your snowy fun. If you still have anny, send them  to year3@dovecote.school and I will add them to the gallery.

Today, it has been Australia Day which is a special day for people living in Australia.

I'm not sure about any of you but I've never been lucky enough to visit Australia. I thought that today might be a good day to find out some fascinating facts about Australia.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday


Take care and stay safe,

Monday 25th January



This week, we are going to be writing our own newspaper report based on what you planned on Friday.

Remember that we are writing a newspaper report based on your favourite part of the Iron Man.

Today, we are going to focus on the headline and the opening sentence.

Remember a headline needs to be short, snappy and memorable.

Perhaps try using rhyme or alliteration.

The opening sentence must contain the 5 W's.

When, where, what, who, why.


Happy Writing!

This week, we will be looking at Complex Sentences. Complex sentences are great because they allow us to add more detail to our sentences. You will learn the difference between a main clause (which makes sense on its own) and a subordinate clause (which needs the main clause).

It is tricky but once you nail it, it will help you become an even better writer.


Tuesday 26th January




Today, we would like you to revise the work on sentences which we have done over the last week.

Can you remember the differences between simple, compound and complex sentences.

Today, we are going to be working on Compound Words. Compound words are words which are made by putting 2 other words together such as goalkeeper or headache. We will try a series of activities this week to build up to a short spelling test on Friday. The words for the test are given at the end of today's lesson and you can also practise them on Spelling Shed.

Today, we are going to write the rest of our newspaper report. Don't worry if you haven't done the first part as you can see the lesson on Monday.

Listen to Mr Bakewell talk about the Key features and read you his effort then have a go at writing your own Iron Man newspaper report.



Challenge yourself to answer these warm-up questions.

Wednesday 27th January



Today, we will begin to look at the 2 functions of apostrophes. 

Apostrophes can be used to show a missing letter or letters and possession.

Click the image above to follow the lesson.



Today, we are going to be editors.

An editor is a very important person at the newspaper as it is their job to make sure that everything in the newspaper is correct.

Mr Bakewell has attached 2 versions of his article. Choose the version you feel most comfortable with to check for errors then check your own work in the same way.

Remember to check spelling, punctuation and vocabulary.


Challenge yourself to answer these questions before moving onto the math's lesson.

Today, we want you to be word detectives and hunt for as many compound words as you can find.

Don't worry if you can't remember what a compound word is. You can either look back to Tuesday's spelling lesson or click on the image above to watch a short video.

We look forward to seeing your lists.

Happy Hunting Spelling Detectives!
