Home learning for Year 3

Welcome to the home learning page for Year 3

Now that your child is isolating for 14 days, please find guidance below surrounding the provision St Thomas’ has put into place to support you with home learning.

We are using a range of highly accredited web resources as a means to provide students with high quality, on-line video lessons and curriculum resources.

The image below provides some 'top tips' for creating a study area at home that will help you focus:


If your child is unable to attend school, please follow the links below to access learning for Year 3


Block B - What makes a good friend?

We are using the text 'The Butterfly Lion' by Michael Morpurgo to inspire our writing during this block of learning.

You can listen to chapter one and two by following the link below.

You will find the other chapters on Youtube.


During this block, you will write a character description.

A character description describes the appearance and personality of a character or a person.

You may want to include how the character:

  • Looks
  • Moves
  • Feels
  • Thinks
  • Speaks 

You may also include details about their past/ background and what their personality is like. 

Follow the lesson links below to learn more about how to plan and write a character description.


In reading, we will focus on using inference skills to answer questions. 

An inference is any step in logic that allows someone to reach a conclusion based on evidence or reasoning.

It is an informed assumption and is similar to a conclusion or a deduction.

Inferences are very important when reading a story or text and is a good reading comprehension skill.

When we make inferences while reading, we are using evidence provided by the author to draw our own logical conclusions.

A writer does not always state certain facts about a character or situation. Instead, we can use the information given to figure certain things out for ourselves. This is using inference skills.

Learn more about inference by following the lesson links below:

Please continue to read for pleasure at home. Reading ten minutes a day can make all the difference. You may want to follow a recipe, explore a website together or curl up with a novel. There are great online audio books available too.



In Maths, we will be learning about Addition and Subtraction.
