Listen up Year 3

Get comfy Year 3, because Miss Bowler has recorded her first ever read-along story for you to enjoy! The book is called ‘The Graveyard Book’ by Neil Gaiman. The first video is chapter 1, so make so you tune in each week to see what happens.

You could listen at home with you family, with your friends, or even at school (just make sure you ask your teacher first).

Click on this link to watch the videos http://readalong.bowlingparkprimary.net/

Afterwards, don’t forget to comment on the videos to let Miss Bowler know that you have been watching.

More amazing work from home!

Here is some more amazing work that has been done at home.  This time from Fauziah in 3SK.  She used the information that she learnt during topic this week to create a poster about Earth’s layers.  Good work Fauziah!

Do you dare to play?


Together they listened to a rumbling in the hallway.  It grew louder and louder. Suddenly, a herd of rhinos charged through the living room and into the dining room crushing all the furniture in their path. Peter and Judy covered their ears as sounds of splintering wood and breaking china filled the house.

(An extract from Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg)

This is my favourite part of our new book, Jumanji. Which is your favourite part of the story? Send me a comment explaining which part you like and why.


 This is my favourite part because I like reading it and I like listening to it when it is read out loud.  Why do you think I like it so much? Could it be what is happening or the sentences that the author used?  Send me a comment with your ideas.

This week’s Maths lessons have been all about fractions.  We have been matching fractions to shapes, learning new vocabulary numerator and denominator, finding equivalent fractions and ordering fractions.

I’ve added a link to a video to watch to remind yourself what we have been learning and a game to practice at home.  I wonder which level you will make it up to?



Can you create something to teach Year 2 children about fractions? Some ideas might be a poster, a booklet or a game.  Bring your creations to school for us to see!

A day in Pompeii

We watched this video as part of our topic work this week.  We described the thoughts and feelings of the villagers as Mount Vesuvius erupted.

Watch the video again.  Can you write a short paragraph describing what is happening? Remember to use:

  • descriptive language (noun phrases and similes)
  • different openers
  • a mixture of short simple sentences and compound sentences (with a conjunction)

Amazing Art Work


This amazing poster was brought in by Sumayo in 3SK.  She has been very busy at home, labelling her volcano and adding nouns and adverbs.  We were so impressed we have displayed it on our topic display in class.

We would love to see any other work that you do at home.  Maybe your work will be on the display too.
