Home Learning for Today


Today for a friday treat we have given you some code breaker activities and investigations.  You are most welcome.


For English, we are starting a new story - The Tin Forest. You will need to read the story from the link and watch the short film clip ready to complete tasks for this week.

Reading task

Read two chapters of a book of your choice.

In your books, draw a setting from one of your books.  It would be brilliant if you could share it on the school blog when you have completed it.    

Active task

 On YouTube, type in ‘P.E. with Joe’ and take part in Joe Wicks HIIT workouts for children.  They are really good fun.

As well as this, if you visit the Barden Website, you will be able to see the brilliant workouts put on by our very own students! Let’s Goooo!

Weekly Tasks

A big welcome to year 3 and the Skylarks.  Please read the information below to become more familiar with what your children will be studying this year.  We will give information on upcoming trips and activities that involve the Skylarks.



In year 3 we will be promoting reading throughout the year to ensure the children are able to gain the best experience in their time with us.  Through guided reading, the children will be reading on a daily basis, using the experience to further their learning.  The children are expected to have a new book every week and will be able to change them during school time.  We ash that parents please read with their children at home.  We will be monitoring reading in class and the children will have chances to win prizes for the amount of reading the complete.  Furthermore, the children are encouraged to use our ‘Skylarks Surf Shack’ reading corner when they are reading as it should be a positive experience.



P.E. is on Mondays and Thursdays. Can we please have the correct kit in school to enable your child to participate confidently.  Children should have a white P.E. top, black shorts and P.E. pumps.   



We will be sending homework out every Friday afternoon to be returned by the following Wednesday.  The homework will either be a project, where the task is open and the children can complete their own research in an area. Or, the homework will be a task related to their learning in the week.  It would be great for parents to help their children with their homework.  If there are any problems or the children are struggling with their task, then they are more than welcome to ask for help from the staff in school.
