Dates for your Diary


Spring Term 2017

A new year gives us all a chance to start a fresh after a restful Christmas holidays.

This term Class 3 will be investigating a geographical topic; investigating rivers, oceans, mountains which links with the science of habitats and life cycles.

This term’s homework topic grid.



You are a grain of sand at the bottom of the ocean – describe a day in your life.  What can you see? How do you feel? What do you do? Do you enjoy being a grain of sand? Were you always a grain of sand or were you once something greater?



Our world is full of AMAZING animals.  Can you discover and research an animal food chain in the wild? Your work should be illustrated with accurate label to support your pictures.

You could even create a shoe box habitat to show your food chain…


Free Pass!


Design your own homework task linked to our topic. You might put your crafty, arty, or building skills to good use! Or, carry out some research into something to do with our topic that you would like to find out about in more detail. The only limit is your imagination!



Create a leaflet advertising a mountain in the Lake District – you could even put your ICT skills into practice and create you leaflet digitally.





Produce a reading river to show a days journey of your reading – see reverse for an example.



The BIG question


You can respond to this question in different ways, through words pictures or any media.  The idea of it is to make you think…


Why should we look after our environment?



Collect your own data about the world we live in and create a chart/graph about it.  Your data could be to do with size of animals, size of countries in Europe, population. If you need graph paper just ask.

There are no right or wrong answers.

Be creative, but most importantly, HAVE FUN LEARNING!




Class 3 children are also reaching out to parents this year and letting them share their learning journey throughout the year by using an app called Seesaw.

Seesaw empowers students of any age to independently document what they are learning at school.

Students capture learning with photos and videos of their work, or by adding digital creations.

Student work can be shared with classmates, parents, or published to a class blog. Seesaw gives students a real audience for their work and offers parents a personalised window into their child’s learning.
