Learning without Limits

Week 7 Virtual Learning

Year 3 Learning Tasks Week beginning 20th July 2020 

Monday 20th July 2020  - 

Please take some time this week to fill in your one page profile for your year 4 teachers.


As we are heading towards the end of term I have only set a few tasks for each day. If you would like to extend your learning at home, look at the extra activities section in the classroom.


Reading: 15 minutes to yourself, spend some time explaining to your grown up what you have read. What happened in the part you read. Can you predict what might happen next?


Literacy: This will be your task for the week. Over the week you are going to plan and write a letter. Your letter will be a very important one because it is for a very important person. You. Your letter will be to your future self. Over the last 5 months life in Britain has changed, it is unlike anything that we have ever known and hopefully will ever experience again. You already made a time capsule at the beginning of this term, but things are changing every week. Things have probably changed since then. 

I would like you to write about the past few months. What happened, why schools had to close, why we went into lockdown and could no longer visit our family and friends, how you felt, what you did at home, how you learnt and how things are slowly getting back to normal. This seems quite a lot so we are going to build it up gradually so by the end of the week you have lots of ideas for your letter. Your letter will remain private for you. It will tell the reader what life has been like. You can choose when to open it. Perhaps at the end of the year or even then end of Year 6. Perhaps you’ll keep it sealed for even longer. It’s up to you.

I have some diaries I wrote when I was 11 and every now and again I look through them and it reminds me how different my life was in the 1980’s.. What we are experiencing will go down in history and you have experienced it first hand. 


Today you will plan your ideas. Please spend time talking about your thoughts with a grown up at home. 


Maths: This week your maths will be linked to the maths that has been covered in Year 3. You will be applying everything you have learned to solve problems and challenges.

Reading: 15-20 minutes to yourself - did you find any new words that you did not understand? Can you choose 3 new words if you found them and find out what they mean?


Literacy: Continue working on your letter today, I would write your introduction - in the introduction you need to explain why we had a lockdown in the first place, what caused it. How did you feel when you found out that schools were closing? Look back at your time capsule, does it say how you were feeling? What happened at the start of lockdown? WHat rules did you and your family have to fol

Thank you Year 3, it has been a pleasure to teach you this year and I wish we would have had more time together in person in our classroom in Year 3. You have done me proud with your home learning and your resilience in this difficult situation. I hope you all have a very restful summer and I look forward to seeing you back in school in September.
