Year 3 Home Learning

Parental Guide to Year 3

Should your child need to self-isolate or if we experience a local lockdown we will use the resources on this page to continue your child’s learning at home so that no future learning is lost. Teachers will continue to communicate with parents or guardians using ClassDojo. This page is for children in Year 3 who are pupils in Class 7 with Miss Kinsella or Class 8 with Mrs Lloyd or Mrs Chambers.

Your child must follow the daily schedule for their year group on the Oak National Academy. They can also access Education City, Oxford Owl, The Spelling Shed and Numbots to support their learning at home.

Click the link below to access Oak National Academy, the online classroom made by teachers, for teachers. You will have access to free, high-quality video lessons and resources to support your child’s learning in English, maths, science and the Foundation subjects at home. They are delivered by a teacher, with a pre-recorded video as well as quizzes, worksheets and creative activities. It’s all easy to use, there’s no login or password, you can access our lessons on any device, and pupils only need materials they can find at home.


By the beginning of Year 3, your child should be able to independently read a range of books. They should be able to read them accurately and quickly enough to be able to focus on what they are reading instead of on each word. They should be able to understand words outside their normal everyday vocabulary. Class teachers will be aiming for them to become independent, fluent and enthusiastic readers who read widely and frequently. They should be developing their understanding and enjoyment of stories, poetry, plays, and non-fiction, and learning to read silently.

Your child will also continue to develop across the different strands of writing: imagination and ideas, audience and purpose, handwriting or typing, spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Please continue to read on a daily basis with your child and ask them questions about the text. Visit Oxford Owl for free eBooks that link to your child’s book band. There are also linked play activities for each book which make reading fun. You can create a free account at:    

You will need to use your own email address and set up a password to access this site.






We have access to a new online learning platform called NumBots.  This game is aimed at boosting addition and subtraction skills for all aged children. Since the success of Times Tables Rockstars in encouraging children to master times table and division fact instant recall, we would like their skills with mental addition and subtraction to be just as good. NumBots will help! More importantly, children in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 can access the games. All children start at the same place in Story mode, and when they get to a certain stage they will unlock Challenge mode. The idea is that they play little and often, and this will significantly improve their understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts.

The login is exactly the same as the one for Times Tables Rockstars.

 Passwords have been stuck inside children’s reading records. Contact your class teacher on ClassDojo for a username and password if you have misplaced them.

Children have free access to Education City to support their English, Maths and Science at home. Passwords have been stuck inside children’s reading records. Contact your class teacher on ClassDojo for a username and password if you have misplaced them.
