Whiteley Primary School

Year 3

Emergency 2-day Home Learning Pack

For the first 2 days of a class or year group bubble quarantine, we have put together a set of learning activities for your child to complete whilst we prepare the next 2 weeks. There is an English, Maths and foundation subject activity planned for each day. If you want to practise reading and times tables, you can use your login for Bug Club and TTRocktars.

What will the first two days look like?

Please feel free to arrange the day as you wish, however a suggested order is below.

What work will my child be completing?

Details of all tasks can be found in the folders on the top left hand side of this page. Select the relevant half term to access the current work.

  • For each day there will be specific English and maths activities.
  • Your child may need to follow a link to a relevant learning website.
  • There will be an activity to complete – you may want to print the sheet for your child, or they can complete the work in their home learning book or on paper.
  • We would also encourage daily practice of reading, spellings and times tables.  They may use online resources such as Bug Club or Times Tables Rockstars.
  • For the foundation subject, your child will need to choose an activity from the suggested list – one activity for day 1 and one activity for day 2.
  • There is NO expectation to hand this ‘emergency 2 day’ work in.
  • If your child is unable to complete all the work provided, please prioritise the English and maths activities along with daily reading.

What will the remainder of the 2 weeks look like?

For the remainder of the 2 weeks, the children will be receiving work on Google Classroom every day. We suggest dedicating daily times to the following subjects.

Subject Timings
Spellings 30 mins
Reading 20-30 mins
English 50 mins
Maths 50 mins
Daily activity (2 foundation subjects) 45-60 mins
  • The children will probably need a short break after each of their activities as this will help them to concentrate again afterwards. They will also probably need some water and snacks to keep them going!
  • In school, we would usually complete the reading, spelling, English and maths activities in the morning and then leave the foundation subjects until the afternoon, but please feel free to follow your own routine to suit your family. Please avoid comparing yourself to other families. What your child needs will be different from other children. If your child takes a longer time to complete one activity, don’t feel that you still need to complete everything else. You might just choose several activities that will fit in with your timescale for the day.
  • Some activities on the Google classroom can be handed in online. If this is the case, it will be indicated at the beginning of the activity.
  • Those tasks which are not required to be submitted may be recorded in your home workbook, if you have one, or on a piece of paper.
  • Please do what feels right for your child and remember to have fun!

What do I do if I have a question?

Everything you need for the first two days should be on this part of the school website. However, if you need to talk to us then please contact us via the year group email.

After the first two days, please do email us and keep in communication as much as possible (year3@whiteleyapps.com). We will reply as soon as we can. If you have questions about how to go about an activity we will be happy to help you work out what to do.
