Middle Street Primary School

 I will now be using the Summer section of the Year 3 class page.

Getting creative at home!

If you want to share a picture of yourself (maybe you want to show a lovely piece of art, conducting a Science investigation or just want your face on here!) and are happy to be on this page please get your parents or carer to email me at - year3@middlestreet.brighton-hove.sch.uk.

Morning Year 3!

Hope you've had a great week. I have been getting stuck into learning French, creating silly collages and taking inspiration from Sophia by doing some gardening!

A massive well done to Matilda for creating some lovely Spanish learning!

I am setting more learning, than I would normally do, today, since it is technically the Easter holidays from tomorrow so I won't be posting any work for a couple of weeks.  There's a lot for you to be getting on with but remember it doesn't have to be done in one go.

You have all been getting on brilliantly - keep it up!




I have set three quizzes on Diagnostic Questions - mental addition and subtraction, addition and subtraction using formal method (column) and estimating and inverse. I would like you all to attempt trying to explain your answers.

Here is a link to a video which clearly explains addition using formal method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwxyheQNXBU and a link to a video which shows subtraction using formal method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVv2MeAQ0Ww 




We are now coming to the end of our Roman topic.

I would like you to research one of the these questions; 

Why did the Romans build Hadrian's wall?

What did the Romans do for us (legacy)?

Why did the Romans leave Britain?

What happened to the Roman Empire?


 It is up to you how you present your learning - you might write some ideas down, you might create a poster, you might make a powerpoint,  video (documentary), newspaper article, write a script, present it using Scratch...however you would like! 

Useful links for History








I would like you to plan and write your own Roman story. You might base it on the myth of Romulus and Remus or you might create your own -  I don't mind as long as it's about the Romans.

 1. Brainstorm some ideas (watch the Romulus and Remus video and look at potential plots - links below). Then you might write your ideas down, draw them or discuss them with a sibling, parent, carer or Fluffy the cat.

 2. Write your story!

 3. Proof-read.  Can you spot any mistakes? Like capital letters missing or in the wrong place? Speech marks? Commas in a list?

4.  Read your story and then draw only what you have described. What do you notice? Could you have described the setting in more detail? Re-write a section of your story which you think could be improved.

5. Share your story with a sibling, parent, carer or Fluffy the cat and give yourself a big pat on the back.

 - If you want some additional learning - you could always turn your story into a book. You might write or type your story and then create a front cover! Or you might want to film yourself reading your story to share on the class page. 

Try to include: paragraphs,  setting description (five senses - hear, see, smell, touch and taste), adjectives, prepositions (silly preposition video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyMrLQ4ZI-4 )and conjunctions (although, as, so, until, because, but....)

Monday 30th March 

 Just wanted to say how amazing all your aqueducts and Roman towns look - you should be very proud of what you have accomplished (even Ernie who called me Cheese Strings)!

Peddy has sent some Spanish and Music learning for you all which is underneath her message.


Hello Year 3!
I know that lots of you are working hard, WELL DONE! There's a lot to learn this week but if it's too much, just work up to the end of the main section. If you really want to stretch your learning, you can continue onto the extra challenge sections.
This week in Spanish you'll be using a tongue twister to help you speak like a real Spanish person; and learning the words for parts of the body. In Music you'll have fun with body percussion and then you'll listen to a song called Blackbird, by The Beatles. You might have heard it before in a well-known film...
Have fun with your learning, and do send us an email to say how you're finding the learning. That way, I'll know what to change for next week.
Sending you huge smiles!

 Morning Year 3! Well done to those who have been going on Sumdog and Diagnostic questions. 

 I would like you to do an Art task. You can choose between designing an aqueduct (can you make it transport water?) or a Roman town in   Britain (or both if you would like!) 

 You could paint, draw, use cardboard, use lego, design it on your computer, use items around the house / garden - to be honest anything.....   just be creative.

  Morning Year 3! I have set another quiz on Diagnosticquestions.com which is based on place value (I have set two - one looking at      two digit numbers and one on three digit numbers - choose the most appropriate one). Information on how to log in is on the post     below! A massive well done to those who have attempted the quiz set last week. 

Friday 20th March

I will be setting Maths learning using the website diagnosticquestions.com - you all have a username and password which is provided on the inside of your learning pack (red book) which was handed to you yesterday. Your username is on the second line (it will be your name and first letter of your surname - remember to put in the capital letters) and your password is on the third line. When you log on you will see the image I've uploaded below - just press start (on the right hand side). Each week I will upload more quizzes so please keep checking.
