Year 3 Home Learning – Friday 13th March 2020

(All learning to be handed in Wednesday 25th March 2020)


Please encourage your child to read for at least 15 minutes at least five times per week. Please record what you have read in your reading record.


Like reading, Spelling is very important for your writing. Spellodrome will have targeted spelling lists each week linking to the spelling focus in class. Challenge yourself and see how many points you can earn!

Over the next 2 weeks you must complete an activity/series of activities that total at least 15 points. How you choose to do so is up to you! For example, you may choose to do one fifteen and a five-point activity or you could do two ten points; you could also choose to do four five-point activities – it is completely your choice! Have a look at the activity menu below.

15 points 10 points 5 points

Listen to these 5 songs:

Holding Out for a Hero

We Don’t Need Another Hero


Wind Beneath My Wings

I Can Be Your Hero

Review the songs – Rank them 1 to 5 – 1 being your favourite.

What sounds can you hear?  Think about tempo(speed), dynamics(loudness), timbre(sound),

Pitch (high and low) and duration(length)

Listen to the lyrics (words) how do you know they are about heroes?  What does the hero do?




Historical Heroes – below is a list of historical heroes or you can think of one yourself.  Can you research the hero and create and information piece about why they were a hero.  Don’t forget to explain when and where they lived and what they did that made them a hero?


Florence Nightingale


Amelia Earhart

Rosa Parks

Mother Teresa

Mary Seacole

Martin Luther King


William Wilberforce

Neil Armstrong


Or any one else from history as long as you can explain why they are a hero!

5 points for each act.


‘Paying it forward’ – Can you do a good deed for someone.  It could be anything that is kind, helpful or thoughtful to someone else.  It could be as simple as picking up something that someone else has dropped and returning it to them or something big raising money for charity!

Write about it, photograph it, video it! Whatever you can think of to show how you are spreading kindness in the world!



Choose your favourite (or scariest).  What do they do?  Why are they good at being a villain?  Why are they the most villainous villain?

You could think about Darth Vader, Scar, Professor Snape.  What about Tom from Tom and Jerry, is he a villain?


TTRS – We are having a Battle of the bands with the other Year 3 class.  It will start on Monday and run until Friday so don’t forget to pay every right answer counts!!
