Bacup Holy Trinity Stacksteads C.E. Primary School

Welcome to the Holy Trinity Stacksteads C.E.P.S. Website

Welcome to Mrs Baron's Year 3 class page.

Well, well, it's Wednesday!  Wed-nes-day.  

Here are some activities to keep your brain active and happy for today.  

PE WITH JOE - Workout Wednesday.

MRS BARON'S MATHS GROUP - here are today's set of questions.


Notes to read before you start

Apostrophes to show possession - these are used in words to show that something belongs to someone or something (e.g. the dog's collar).

Apostrophes for contraction - an apostrophe is used to show where there are letters missing when two words are joined together (e.g.  do not = don't      did not = didn't).


It's choose-what-you-want Wednesday.  Hurrah!  Here are some reading choices for you:

A book on Bug Club (including all the bugs).

Read one of your favourite books of your own.

Read your library book.

Read your reading book.

You can read to yourself, someone in your house, your pet or your favourite toy.  If you see a word that you don't know, find out how to say it and what it means.


GEOGRAPHY - Do you remember labelling the counties of England? Counties are the smaller areas that England is divided up into.  We live and go to school in Lancashire.  Find out what the symbol of Lancashire is and draw it. 

Now find out:

  • why it was chosen.
  • what each part represents. (What does it show or stand for?) 

Label each part of your drawing to show what you have found out.

Do you think there are important parts of Lancashire that are not shown or represented on the symbol?

Design your own county sign that shows what is important to you.


ART - See Mrs Bolton's page for today's art activity.

Finished?  Great!   Try some of the online activities here.  If there are any that you enjoy, please write it in the comments section.


Hello there, If you have any difficulties or questions, please leave a message and I'll do my best to help. Let me know how you are all getting on. Bye just now. Mrs Baron :-)

Hello Jaxon! It's great to hear from you! I'm pleased that you are enjoying the activities - very well done for completing them all. I bet you were great at them. The 'Taking Flight' is a terrific short film - I imagine you thought of some exciting vocabulary to use. I shall upload some more activities for you to enjoy tomorrow. Let me know how you are getting on with them. :-)

Hi Mrs Baron Iam enjoying my home school I finished all the work today and did PE with Joe . I enjoyed watching the video and answering the questions and found the virtual cave very interesting:-)

Mrs Baron - for Tom(about a week ago)

Hello Tom! I'm pleased that you are getting used to it. You are a hard-working member of my class. I am getting more used to it too. Today's work didn't take me as long to prepare as Monday's did. The most important thing you can do is keep going and before you know it, it will all be done! Remember the story of 'The Hare and the Tortoise'? The tortoise won because he kept going. Well done. Keep in touch. Mrs Baron

Tom says “it got a bit confusing at the start but then I started to get used to it” - so he’s definitely a little happier today, thank your for your lovely reply it made Tom smile : ) xx

Here are the answers for yesterday's work.  How did you get on?  Let me know in the comments section.

A NOTE TO PARENTS - There has been a lot of press coverage about 'home learning' and the trials and tribulations. This is new ground for us all and we are learning as we go. It might take time to find a routine, there may be technical difficulties and there may just be some days when things just don't work out. It's fine. Please don't worry. We want learning to continue to be fun. Most of all, we really just want to get all of our pupils back healthy and happy.

Mrs Bolton and I can be contacted via the comments section above or on .
