“Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes, don’t wanna be a richer man” – David Bowie

Good Morning Year 3,

Today we will be recapping our money knowledge from yesterday’s activity to find the answers when adding larger amounts of money. If you are unsure of how to approach the activity, check yesterday’s blog! Tomorrow we will be looking at how to calculate what change we should get when buying things (a very valuable skill). For now, lets focus on the sums below.

Find the total of the money below.

  1. £10 and 34p + £4 and 25p
  2. £10 and 65p + £9 and 45p
  3. £5 and 32p + £3 and 99p
  4. £14 + £6 and 12p
  5. £27 and 67p + £100


Please leave a comment below to let us know what you think of the activity 🙂

Thank you,

The Year 3 Team.

Government Supermarket Voucher Scheme

Dear parents/carers,

You may have heard on the news that the government has developed a national scheme to provide supermarket vouchers to families of pupils eligible for benefits-related free school meals during the school closure. This will be via the Edenred online portal.

If you are entitled to receive vouchers through this scheme then a member of the school office staff will be contacting you today to confirm an email address to send the voucher to. We will aim to send the voucher codes via email on Friday. The vouchers are for a set amount of £15 per pupil per week. You can select from a range of different supermarkets to use them in.

If you are not entitled to benefits-related free school meals, but you are currently experiencing difficulties then please email the school office on and we can discuss this with you.

Please see below for more information about the scheme.

Good morning Year 3,

Today for English, you are going to describe the setting of where your story is going to take place.  It can be in more than one place. 

So, what is a setting?

setting is where and when a story is set. When writing a story, the setting is really important.

So, when thinking about the setting for your story consider:

·     Atmosphere,

·     Location,

·     What can you Hear?

·     What can you see?

·     What can you smell?

·     What can you taste?

·     What can you feel?

·     When does your story take place?

·     What’s the weather like?

Click on ‘Story Settings’ below which will give you examples of how to describe your settings.


Here a few images of settings to get you started and spur your imagination:

Catch up not Ketchup

Hi Fox Class!

Thank you to everyone leaving comments on posts and checking the blog everyday. I miss you all so I thought i’d update you on how i’ve been keeping busy and ask you about what you’ve been doing to have fun too. 🙂

To keep myself active I have been going for walks/runs on a daily basis and following along to workout videos on youtube. I’ve set myself a goal that I am to meet everyday so at the end of the week I can have a treat (that I choose). I have started a new book of poems by Pablo Neruda who is a famous poet who is quoted by saying;

Love is not about property, diamonds and gifts. It is about sharing your very self with the world around you


Laughter is the language of the soul.

Even though it seems a little strange, I have been brushing my teeth three times a day because we have to look after our teeth! I’ll be doing some more research into fun activities for us to do over the next week but I am super interested in hearing about what you’ve been up to?

Leave a comment below and let me know! I’ll try to take some pictures to upload aswell.

Look forward to hearing from you guys!

Miss Thompson 🙂
