Welcome to Our Website!

Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to our Year 3 web page. I will post different activities here during the school closure. Please keep looking at the page as there will be new things added for you to do. Any blue text is a clickable link to a resource or site.

Keep safe,

Mr Ferguson.

Your well-being

It is important to look after your mental health and well-being. Parents, carers and children, do what you can and don't feel guilty if you can't do everything. We all have different challenges during these strange times and we are doing our best to navigate uncharted waters. Do what you can but, above all, look after yourselves and those in your home, your friends and families. Playing a game together, taking a call on skype or facetime to keep in touch with loved ones and looking after one another are much more important than making sure you complete every task!

Photos and Contact

Thank you for all your wonderful photos. It is lovely to see how busy you have been...Keep up the great work!
Please ensure all photos are sent via our school twitter feed @SJBNormanton and any urgent email messages are sent to the main school office email address: Thank you.

The News

Don't believe everything you read or hear on social media, there is a lot of fake news out there at the moment. BBC Newsround and Espresso NewsBites/Daily News are sources you can trust, presenting the news in a sensible way.

If you are worried...

Home Learning 

Here I will post a variety of home learning resources to support various curriculum areas. Each Monday you will receive an activity sheet via Groupcall with a range of suggested tasks and, on Wednesdays, you will receive a letter from me.

BBC Bitesize Daily

Daily lessons are now on TV every day. Watch at 9am on the channel numbers below or through the red button.

You can catch up  on iPlayer - just search 'bitesize daily 7-9' for the Y3 programme. Try to watch every day at 9am if you can - you don't need a smartphone or computer.

If you can access the internet, daily activities are also online at BBC Bitesize

Other Activities
Make a Junk Instrument
There are hundreds of ways you could make untuned percussion instruments – things to bang and shake! 
Tape two empty yogurt pots filled with a handful of dried peas or rice, or decorate an empty Pringles tube, the possibilities are endless! Use these to play the rhythm or keep the pulse of your favourite piece of music. Why not record yourself and share short videos of your performances on Twitter? You could use them when we clap for carers on Thursdays at 8pm.
Ten Pieces
Each week there is a new musical activity on the BBC 'Ten Pieces at Home' website.
Watch the videos to listen to the music and find out what to do. You can even upload your work to the site.
