We are continuing with our  topic this week in Maths which is Addition and Subtraction. For each day you will find a Varied Fluency sheet and a Problem Solving and Reasoning sheet. These sheets are differentiated so you do not need to complete all of them. Just select one Varied fluency and one problem solving and reasoning for each day. 


To help you choose what sheet your child needs here is a guide to what each level means:

A red star sheet= developing (challenge level is easier)

A blue star sheet= expected (this is the level we are expecting in Year 3)

A gold star sheet= greater depth (mastery level and this is challenging)


Each day you can use the White Rose Maths link to find the corresponding video. This gives you examples of the questions and helps to explain what you need to do. To find the video, follow the link provided and then look for the video which has the same title as your worksheet.

There are also Oak Academy videos to watch which is also to help support your child. Example questions have also been put together on a weekly copy of the PowerPoint slides to practice before completing the 2 sheets for each day. 


For this week we are going to be planning and writing our own adventure story based on Gangsta Granny!

We are looking for SUPER adventure stories with superstar sentences and creative ideas!

 A description of each task and the resources are available below including the next 2 chapters of Gangsta Granny. If you are struggling to think of your own characters, settings or ideas there is 2 premade story mountain planning sheets you can use as inspiration!  Just click on the star below!


You will also find a SPag activity and relevant PowerPoint Slides. These sheets are similar to Maths where you have a varied fluency and application and reasoning. These are differentiated so you need to select which level you want to try for varied fluency and problem solving and reasoning!

Reading Comprehension:


Each week we will set 2 different reading comprehension challenges for you to complete at home. Spend 10-15 minutes reading the text and then answer the questions. Read what the question is asking you are try your very best! 


We have also included a new series where famous celebrities read an extract from their favourite children's book! We will include a new episode each week to listen to! 


In RE this week we are going to be looking at evaluating a set of rules! You will find a copy of 3W and 3C's Class Rules and a worksheet where you will answer a set of questions in full sentences!

We are continuing with our topic 'Animals including humans' this week with a fantastic new task! This week you are going to be learning all about about the different nutrient groups! You will find a worksheet and a help sheet to help you fill out the table! Use the video clips and resources to help you complete this task!


We hope you enjoy this task and there is Skeleton challenge sheet to use to recap your understanding of the last couple of lessons! 


This week we are looking at how Slough High Street has changed over the years! Your task is using the pictures, draw a picture of Slough High Street in 1890 and 2020. See if you can answer the challenge questions in full sentences!


From our fantastic pieces of art last week, we are going to become mini artists once more! This week we are looking at using warm and cold colours! Artists use colours to create depth. Warm colours such as reds, yellows, oranges, and red-violets remind us of things associated with the concept of heat such as summer, beaches, the sun, fire etc. Cool colours such as blues, blue-greens, and blue-violets remind us of things associated with the absence of heat – such as winter, ice, water, etc.


You can use paint, pencils, scrap pieces of coloured paper or  any resources you have at home! There is some information on the first page about warm and cold colours are and some inspiration for your own picture!

Get creating!

At SMFR for PSHE we use the SCARF programme. To incorporate PSHE within your remote learning, the SCARF programme have created units that  cover key concepts and outcomes within SCARF’s half-termly units and these activities are  to encourage children to think and reflect. These focus on positive themes and developed specifically to help build positive relationships in the home. These activities do not necessarily require lots of resources and their purpose are to promote discussion and provide safe PSHE activities to all children. 


This week we are looking at the world around us! Your task is to: Draw, paint or create a picture of a volunteer. That could be a volunteer in school, someone you know who is a volunteer for a character or you could research a volunteer! Write a couple of sentences underneath the picture to explain how this volunteer helps e.g. “Mrs. Smith listens to me read”
