Can children or parents add the following groups on facebook: 

Holy Family Catholic Primary School Parent Information Page AND

Year Three HF


The first page is a whole school facebook page where staff will share announcements, links to work and resources and share ideas to do at home. 

The second page is for Year 3 children where work can be shared. Miss Elstub and I can help the children with their work if needed and award Class Dojos for effort and work produced. 


Thank you 

Miss Hodby

The above is a link to our School Zoom lessons and the Meeting ID number and password you will need to access the lesson. This information will allow you to access ALL lessons throughout the week. Thanks for your support

Please find below a list of free online resources and documents to support your children at home.

Children have also all had access to home learning packs at school, which contain a variety of activities to be used at home. All home learning packs contain a pencil and paper for the children to use. Feel free to also use the reverse of the pages supplied. I have attached below the learning ideas/ projects sheet that is in the home pack.


At this time, it is also useful for your children to be developing important life skills such as: 

- Telling the time using analogue and digital watches.

- Following a recipe to cook or bake.

- Helping to make beds and tidy rooms.

- The importance of hygiene.

- Sewing

- Communicating confidently

- Being active (see videos below)

- Family projects

- Reading different books, brochures, leaflets, letters.

-Watch Newsround to keep up to date with what is happening around the world.

Learning at home can be so incredibly engaging when shared together as a family. If you have any concerns, please email the admin account for the school (found on the contact page) and I will respond accordingly.


I hope you find this information useful and most importantly, I hope you all take care and stay safe during this time.

Many thanks,

Miss Hodby

Fantastic France

Year Three have began their topic called 'Fantastic France!'

So far, we have made croissants which were delicious and tried a variety of French cuisine including: baguettes, onion soup, camembert cheese and blue cheese! The children loved it (maybe not the blue cheese).

We have also been exploring facts about the Eiffel Tower including how tall it is. We tried to create out own scaled down version of the Tower using spaghetti and marshmallows. The children did a great job not only building their structures but working as teams.

The children loved making their own decorations for our class Jesse tree. We read the different stories together and discussed the symbols and why they linked to the different stories. It was a great way to help us wait during Advent.
As part of Judaism week, Year Three loved learning about Hannukah and the special Jewish festivals. They each made their own Menorah and discovered it's secret meaning!

Year Three have enjoyed learning about the Church's Liturgical Year

Terrific at Timestables!

Year Three have been working hard on their times tables. They are trying hard to learn them at home at school. These are the times tables they need to know by the end of Year Three:

2s, 3s, 5s, 10s, 4s, 6s, 8s, 25s, 50s, 100s.

Challenge accepted!!!


Important information:

PE - PE is currently taught on Friday afternoons so please ensure all children have PE kits in school. Jewellery must be removed for PE so if your child cannot remove their own earrings, please take them out before school. 

Homework - Homework is given out on Fridays and should be returned on Fridays. Homework club is available by request on lunch times for children who are unable to complete it at home or who need some additional support. 

Reading books- Please can children bring their books to school every day and can they try to read at home as much as possible. At Holy Family we are passionate about inspiring life long readers!

School uniform - We pride ourselves on the appearance of our children. Please help us to maintain this by ensuring all children attend in the correct uniform, including school shoes.
