Good Morning Year 3!


We hope you have had a wonderful weekend. This week is the last week of home learning before the summer holidays and we finally get to go back to school in September woohoo!

The Joe Wicks P.E lessons are a great way to start your day. They are live at 9am but can be done at any time of the day. The link is below.


In English today we would like you to get your CGP English books out and complete pages 22 and 23 ‘Clauses and Phrases.’ We have attached a PowerPoint to Class Dojo and on our class page to explain the different clauses and phrases with examples for you to have a go at answering correctly before starting the work in your books.


A clause is a group of words that contain a subject and a verb.

A main clause can act as a sentence on its own.

E.G. He walked over to the table.

A subordinate clause cannot act as a sentence on its own but still contains a subject and a verb.

E.G. Before Taylan grabbed the football.


A phrase is a group of words that form part of a sentence.

E.G. For a short while.


For question 2 you will need to know the difference between noun phrases and adverbial phrases.


A noun phrases is a word or group of words containing a noun. These function in a sentence as subject, object, or prepositional object.

For example:

The yellow house is for sale.


An adverbial phrase helps to add more information to a sentence. They can describe how something happened or will happen

For example:

On Monday I went into town to visit my friend.


In Maths we would like you to complete the pages 32 and 33 in your CGP Maths book on adding and subtracting fractions. To add or subtract fractions the denominator (number at the bottom) will stay the same in the questions we are looking at and the numerator (number at the top) will change.

For example:

3/5 + 1/5 = 4/5

As both the denominators at the bottom are the same these do not change as this is our whole. The numerator is how many out of the whole we have so we add these together. This is the same with subtraction.

For example:

7/10 - 3/10 = 4/10


We would also like you to complete some Geography as well today. Today we are going to be looking at oceans. We would like you to click on the link below to BBC Bitesize:

We would like you to watch the video then complete the activities set.


Don’t forget your daily reading today. Have a look for the use of clauses and phrases in your chosen text.


If you require any help or assistance please do not hesitate to contact us on the Class Dojo page or on our school Facebook page.


Remember there are Dojo points up for grabs for every picture we see of completed work.


Have a wonderful day.

Mrs Etheridge and Mrs Joesbury
