LITERACY – Listen to ‘Chapter 6’ of Edward Tulane. How do you think each of the characters from the previous chapter is feeling? Put yourself in each of their shoes to complete today’s activity. (See downloads below)

MATHS – This week we are continuing to learn about time. Start the lesson with the YouTube song which is linked in the PowerPoint in the ‘downloads’ section below. Practice telling the time in intervals of 5 minutes. Challenge yourself to also include the hour!

PSHE – It’s not always easy to think happy thoughts but this week we would like you to try. Each day think about something that makes you happy. Keep a journal and draw a picture to help remind you.


PE – It’s disco time! Imoves are taking you back in time to D.I.S.C.O! See if you can follow the moves for an upbeat and fun routine.

THEMATIC – Learn how Bronze Age people mined copper and why this metal was so important for them. Then, use the template for the application form (or create your own) and apply to be a miner in the copper mines.  (See downloads below)

READING – Join Mr Shipley for ‘Chapter 7’ of Edward Tulane below and then use the reading grid to help you create a review of the book so far. Think about what you have enjoyed and what you think will happen next. (See downloads below)


MATHS – Our maths lessons last Thursday taught us how to tell the time to the nearest minute past the hour. Follow the PowerPoint to learn how to tell the time to the nearest minute to the hour. Then use the document to practice writing and drawing the time. (See downloads below)

READING  – Listen to the next two chapters of Edward Tulane below. Then, use your inference skills to identify how Edward feels about what has happened.

Chapter 8

Chapter 9

PE – Today’s your chance to become the teacher. See if you can put together a sequence of dance moves to create a routine for someone at home to follow. They can be as simple or as complex as you like but they must be clear enough for someone else to follow.


SCIENCE – We need air to survive but what about plants? Can they survive without air? Carry out today’s experiment to see. (See downloads below)

MUSIC – Today we will be looking at different genres and appreciating a wider range of music. Follow the video below to complete today’s session – if you double click you will be able to see the video in the full screen.

MATHS – We have been looking at 12 hour clocks but we know sometimes times can be shown in 24 hours like on a digital clock such as a microwaves, ovens and mobile phones. Follow the slides to learn how to read and write analogue and digital times on a 24 hour clock.


ART – Stone Age people made use of natural materials. No part of the animals they caught for food would have been wasted. Apart from furs providing warm bedding and clothing, the bones, teeth, antlers and horns made great ornaments! The beads were threaded on leather thongs, and shells and stones would have been used, too. Have a go at making your very own Stone Age Jewellery. Don’t forget to send a picture of you modelling it to the home learning page. Have fun!

LITERACY -Have you ever thought about sending a message in a bottle? Today we will do just that. We will imagine that we are Susanna (Edward). We are going to write a message in a bottle to Abilene using some special techniques to extend your sentences. Watch the video below to complete today’s task.  As usual if you want to see it in full screen you will need to double click.

FRENCH – This week in French, we will be continuing with greetings. Today, we will be looking at different ways to say ‘Goodbye’.

Extra Activities

Pegasus Weekly Task – This week, it is Children’s Art Week and we would like you to get creative with egg boxes.  Please see the task in the downloads section below.

MATHS – How much TT rockstars practice have you been getting? Take the times table challenge below to see what kind of rock star you are becoming.

READING – Sometimes you find new words when you begin reading and you have to use a range of strategies to find out the meaning of them. The same applies to our Latest book. Try this activity below to identify the meaning and put the story into context.

STORY TIME – Exciting news!  On Wednesday 10th June, we will be hosting our first trial live session via the ‘Google meet’ platform. This is a trial to see if we can all use this App securely in the future and you can read all about what we are trying to do here.  The session will be at 12 noon and the children will need the code ‘year3pat’ to enter. Read the news story and then please follow this link for instructions in how to access the meeting.
