Troubleshooting- Not able to see answer options / numbers on Numbots? We have found the problem is solved if you use your device in the portrait position. (Turn the screen longways- top to bottom.)


Welcome everyone!

Our lessons for the week are now on  School Jotter, on this site.

Please go to, and click on, the Parent Information section above in the green box, then Home Learning and then add your own individual login that was sent home inside your Home Learning Pack. 

I need you to do this each day.

On the Home page you will find a timetable for this week. When you click on the orange tabs at the top, you will be taken to the subject page. I will leave a web link, a piece of work or instructions for which page in you CGP books to do on that day, for that subject. I might also ask you to do an activity, or record one, in the lined, green exercise book that was included in your pack. (The timetable is just a suggestion that some families have told me they find useful.)

Wherever possible, please stick to the pages that I have set in the CGP books, and then we are all working on the same thing at the same time on the same day. 

Mr Perkins and I will be checking the logins, and the pages you have visited, as the sessions will reflect what is going on in the Year 3 Bubble classroom and it is really important that you keep up with your learning.

Thank you SO MUCH to all of the children who accessed School Jotter learning pages, My Maths,  Numbots and Bug Club last week. You know who you are! (And so do I...)

I will be ringing home to see how things are going on WEDNESDAY morning again this week to see if I can support you with anything. It was lovely talking to some of you last week. If I don't ring, it is because you have an older brother or sister at school and their teacher will contact home but that might be on a different day. Again if you need anything, please ask, and they will pass the message back to me. 

I miss you all very much.

Take care and stay safe!

Love from,

Mrs Paris.


This is just to give you an update on our new areas of study for this half term.



A quick review of the work from last year.

Recall and use 3x 4x and 8x tables and their division facts.

We will write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the tables that we know.

Pupils will solve missing number problems involving multiplication and division.

You will also need to do your My Maths, TT Rockstars, and Numbots maths online. 



Our first text will be Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. Although this is a nonfiction book, it is full of interesting information and vocabulary associated with the Stone Age.

Our “Steps to Read” shared reading unit is called Rivers and Mountains and we will have 4 texts to study.


You will also find your weekly spellings and other activities on the Jotter learning pages.

You will also need using Bug Club online to keep up your reading skills.


In Science we will be looking at animals including humans. We will find out the names of some of the bones in our body and working out what they are for. We will also look at creatures in the animal kingdom and see if we can find any without bones! How do they move?


Our Through The Ages topic will start off in the Stone Age. We will find out how and where people lived including what their homes were like, what they had to eat and the clothes they had.


Art lessons will focus on creating a Stonehenge picture and exploring cave art.



A few quick reminders for those of you attending  Bubble Y3

P.E. will be on Monday and Friday so please come in your kit. We will continue our lessons outside for the next few weeks.

A water bottle will be needed in school. It will be taken home at the end of each day to be cleaned and refilled.

Please let us know if you have moved or changed your phone number during the holidays. We will also need to know if somebody new is picking your child up so that they can be added to our “Pick Up” list. (You can phone this information through to the office.)



Many thanks for your continued support during these unusual times.


Best wishes,

Year 3 Team.
