Good morning Year 3,

 

Well it’s the end of our school year!! Such a shame we didn’t get to spend our last day together, but we are going to have a get together on Google Classroom later to have a bit of an end of year party, share some jokes and play some games. Hope you can make it!!

As well as maths and reading, I’ve put some fun Olympic tasks for you to do. Try to do one, but you can do them all if you want to.

Have fun Y3 and hopefully see you at 11:30

Olympic activities

Option 1

Read the Olympics PowerPoint and design a new medal for the games (see resources)

Option 2

As the games will be hosted in Japan, why not learn to count to ten in Japanese? Watch this clip: Counting from 1 to 10 in Japanese - YouTube

Then create a poster using the Japanese symbols and words to show someone how to count to ten. See resources for some sheets to help you.

Option 3

Read the PowerPoint about the history of the Olympic rings. Then design a poster with the rings in the centre. Make it bright and informative and include at least four facts about the history of the rings.

Option 4

Make a fact file about Japan (see resources). You can use the internet to find the answers. Ask a grown up first.

Option 5

Not related to the Olympics, but you can choose your top 5 jokes or riddles to share at our party later. Make sure you write them down

Main Activity 40-45 mins

Today, we are going to do something a little bit different. After last week’s lesson about writing to a pen pal, some of you have been asking about how to write to a pen pal. In Yr3, we have a class charity called Post Pals where you can write to another child. The children on the site are usually unwell and spending long periods in hospital. Writing to someone like that will really cheer them up. Please watch this clip and I will explain everything:

English 29/1 Letter to a Post Pals - YouTube

This link will take you to the main site

https://www.postpals.co.uk/

This link will show you a list of Post Pals that you can choose from. It will also give you an address so that you can write them a real letter.

http://www.postpals.co.uk/find-pals/

Today’s task is to choose a Post Pal and write them a letter. It will be similar to the one that you wrote last week to your imaginary Lonely Beast, but this time it will be about you and it will be helping someone who needs cheering up.

Remember to:

  • Put your name and address on the top right
  • Leave a line
  • Write today’s date
  • Leave a line
  • On the right, write Dear and your pen pals name
  • Write an opening paragraph to introduce yourself and say why you’re writing
  • Write a paragraph about yourself and your life.
  • Write a final paragraph of encouragement (what hopeful message would you like to hear if you were in hospital?)
  • Leave a line and write an informal sign off e.g. best wishes, kind regards,

After that you could create a piece of art inspired by Andy Warhol’s work. You could either:

  1. Split your page in four and draw four images of the same person. This could either be yourself or someone you know well. After that, colour them in (you could experiment with using unusual colours – just like Andy Warhol).
  2. Use the worksheet (see resources) to create a similar Warhol like picture.

Today, we are going to do some more work on our new book the Lonely Beast by Chris Judge. Either watch the clip below or read the instructions:

 

Untitled: Feb 25, 2021 7:54 AM - YouTube

 

Today I would like you to imagine that you’re a different Lonely Beast than yesterday and that you’re writing to the Lonely Beast in our story to ask him to be your friend. Remember in a letter you need to:

  • Put the your address at the top right (make one up. Choose a different country this time)
  • Leave a line
  • Put today’s date
  • On the left write ‘Dear Lonely Beast’
  • Leave a line
  • Write an opening paragraph to say why you’re writing.
  • Write another paragraph to:

1) Tell him all about yourself

2) Explain why you’d make a good friend (use adjectives to describe your qualities)

  • Write a final paragraph to ask him some questions
  • Leave a line and write an informal sign off e.g. Best Wishes, Kind Regards, Lots of Love

I have put an example of what a good letter looks like in the resources so make sure that you read that first. You might also want to draw the flag of the country that you have chosen your new Lonely Beast to come from (just like in the example letter) and also find out how to say 'hello' in that country. You can do this on Google.

Untitled: Feb 22, 2021 7:10 PM - YouTube

Then I would like you to have a go at writing your own version. Your poem could be for a wizard, fairy, unicorn or something magical. This is a great opportunity to be really imaginative. To make your ideas really amazing you could:

  • Use adventurous adjectives for description e.g. a tiny, ancient book of spells with crumpled pages
  • Use some similes i.e. compare something to something else using like or as e.g. five dragon’s teeth as sharp as a knives.
  • Use some alliteration i.e. words next to one another which begin with the same letter e.g. a dazzling diamond as bright as the stars in the night sky.
  • Items made from unusual things e.g. a vest made from a spider’s web OR items that are larger or smaller than we would usually expect e.g. a handkerchief the size of a car park.

Good morning Year 3,

 

Wow, it’s our last day of home learning before half term Year 3. We have completed nearly six weeks of lessons at home!!! I know that learning at home isn’t quite as much fun or quite as easy as it is at school, but me , Mrs Wibberley and Mrs Lyth are really proud of how hard you have tried this half term and how grown up you have all been. Very well done Y3.

 

I’m sorry that the afternoon reading group didn’t go ahead as planned yesterday. We were having some internet problems in school with so many live sessions going on. Hopefully, we won’t have these problems today. The session has moved to 2:00. Hope that’s okay.

 

I’m looking forward to seeing you all at 9:30 tomorrow for our live session. Don’t forget it’s our times tables test tomorrow as well and if you would like to bring something to show and tell for the 11:30 slot that would be great.

Play verbs in space by hitting the space robot holding the verb:

Main Activity 40-45 mins

Tomorrow we are going to write a recipe. It can be for a medicine, a potion (either good or bad) or a spell (either good or bad).

Today, there are two activities to complete:

 

Firstly, I would like you to make an ingredient list for your idea. If you did the reading activity last week, you might already have some ideas which you may want to improve or change. Perhaps you could change them by making the ingredients have opposite effect (so if your medicine ingredients were bad last week maybe you could make them good this week). Another way to improve them is to use some quantity words or phrases (see resources). Choose between 5 and 10 ingredients, draw them and also use a quantity word or phrase.

 

Secondly, in the resources section I have included some recipes. Please read some of them and see if you can spot any of the verbs and nouns that we spotted yesterday. Also look carefully at how they are set out. Please circle/spot the following features:

  • Title
  • Subheadings
  • Also often in the ingredients section they use (abbreviations) for the amounts to make the words smaller. Can you spot any in the recipes and work out what they mean using the word bank?

Science

Today we are going to learn all about vertebrates and invertebrates.  This is a very scientific way of describing whether living things have a backbone or no backbone. Watch the clip below to find out which is which.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R50Xc1EUHwg

Once you have done that, split your page into two. Label one side vertebrate and the other invertebrate. Choose 5 of each. Draw and label them. There is an extra sheet in resources to help you with creature ideas. If you’re not sure whether the creature is vertebrate or invertebrate then you could use Google to find out by typing in one of the following questions:

Does (name of animal) have a backbone?

Is (name of animal) a vertebrate/invertebrate

This week, I would like you to think about all the things that you will need to make your healthy snack. Make a list of the ingredients and draw a picture of them. If you go to the supermarket over the weekend with mum and dad, why not take a pencil and paper and write down the cost of each item? Maybe you could even try to add them up. We will make our healthy snack on Monday (8/2).

Today, we will complete another writing task about the Tear Thief. We are going to imagine that we are the Little Girl in her bedroom at the end of the book writing her diary about all of the things that have happened to her that day. She had quite a day!! Remember that a diary:

  • Needs to be written in the past tense
  • Start with ‘Dear diary’
  • Talk about the events of the day e.g. losing the dog, meeting the Tear Thief etc.
  • Includes thoughts and feelings – how did she feel about seeing the Tear Thief for the first time?
  • Includes wishes, hopes and fears

 

I've put an example of a good diary in the resources. Read it first and it will help you with ideas. 

Break time (15 mins)

Today, I am going to explain the English task on Google Classroom. This session will start at 9:30 a.m. Please bring the work that you completed yesterday as this will help you with the task. Don’t worry if you can’t make it as you should be able to do the task by following the instructions below.

We are going to use the picture where the Tear Thief first meets the little girl (see resources) to write a new page for the book. Imagine a different conversation between the two characters than the one in the book. What questions might the little girl ask? (Use some of the ideas that you came up with on Wednesday) What might the Tear Thief reply? You will need to:

 

  • Use question marks for questions
  • Use inverted commas/speech marks to punctuate speech.
  • When closing speech, use punctuation before the closing inverted commas.
  • Use powerful verbs e.g. cried instead of said
  • Use adverbs to say how the characters are speaking e.g. in scared voice
  • Start a new line for each new speaker.
  • Explain what a character is doing while speaking e.g. “What do you want?” asked the girl nervously as she stared into the puddle.
  • Choose verbs and adverbs for effect to show how a character is feeling e.g. whispered or cried instead of said; etc.

Today we are going to carry on with our work on Islam. We are going to learn all about the Mosque (a Muslim place of worship). Watch the clip below:

What happens in a Mosque? - YouTube

After that read the Power Point (see resources). Use the outline of the mosque (see resources) and the word bank to draw and label all the important things that you would find inside a mosque. Use the information from the PowerPoint to write a sentence about each of them.

It is normally Golden Time now so you can have some free time this afternoon. I have put some activities in the resources that you might want to do OR….

As lots of you enjoyed drawing the fruit and vegetable cartoons I have found some more that you might like to try. Seeing as you all like drawing so much and you are so good at it, I thought you might like to do some during Golden Time. They are all of unhealthy foods this time, but it’s fine to have things like this as long as you don’t have too much. I think we all deserve a treat at the moment!!

Good morning Year 3,

 

Well done to everyone who came to the live session yesterday. I know there were a few people who had technical issues, but fingers crossed that these are all solved now. I was very impressed with your listening and comprehension skills and it was also nice to hear how much you enjoyed the story. 

 

Please note that there is an extra live session on Friday at 9:30 a.m. where I will discuss our writing task. The 11:30 a.m. times tables session will also go ahead as planned.

 

Have a great day everyone

Warm up 5-10 mins

Well done if you completed your spelling test yesterday. The new spellings should be on Spelling shed now. I’ve updated the list to make the date of each test a bit clearer (see resources).

Main Activity 40-45 mins

Today, we are going to think about the moment in the story where the little girl meets the Tear Thief. Start by splitting your page in half and drawing a picture of the little girl at the top of one column and the Tear Thief at the top of the other. Then take a look at the list of words (or phrases) that I have included in the resources. Your task today is to sort the words into the right columns (if you are unsure of what some of the words mean, please ask a grown up). Think about this point in the story and a conversation between the characters. How do you think the little girl might feel seeing this mysterious character for the first time? Which words might suit the Little Girl and which might suit the Tear Thief? Some might suit both, so you will need to put them in both columns. Also, if you can think of any words or phrases of your own, then please add them to the list. Tomorrow, we are going to write some dialogue between these two characters so you will need all the ideas from yesterday and today to make your writing on Friday the best that it can possibly be.

Main Activity 40-45 mins

Re read the start of the Tear Thief (see resources) either to yourself or get an adult to read it to you. Focus on the page where we learn about the different kinds of tears and their colours. Draw the tears described in the book and label them. Also draw a picture next to the tears to show what the feeling word means. Then record the simile (comparison) used in the book. Take a look at the pupil worksheet as I’ve done one for you already. There are five in the book, but not all of them have similes so you will have to make some up yourself.

After that, choose five feelings from the feeling list (see resources) and design some tears to go with those emotions. Think about what colour they would be, draw a picture to show that emotion and come up with a simile to describe the colour by comparing it to something else.

Main Activity 40-45 mins

Today we are going to be learning all about mnemonics. They sound hard, but actually they’re pretty easy once you get the hang of them and pretty helpful too. Watch the clip below and also read the PowerPoint in the resources section which will explain what they are and also gives lots of examples:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcUoW1ek5zU

Basically, they help us how to remember to spell tricky words by thinking of words that begin with each letter from the tricky word e.g:

 

B ig

E lephants

F ind

O ranges

R eally

E njoyable

 

Choose some words that you find tricky to spell and see if you can make mnemonics to help you to remember how to spell them. See the resources for a tricky word list that you might find useful. Make a mnemonics poster to go up in your bedroom to help you to remember to spell some tricky words. Make them bright and colourful and also include pictures to help you remember. I've included some examples in the resources so maybe you could try and change some of those with your own ideas.

Good morning Year 3,

 

I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. Well done for trying so hard this week, I am really proud of you all. I know learning at home isn’t quite the same as in school. You might find that some days are harder than others. Please don’t feel that you have to complete all of the work that I put on here. Just try your best and do what you can.

 

We will have our live session today at 11:30 a.m. which will be the time tables test for the 3 times tables and also the division facts. Also have a think about your favourite joke or your favourite thing in the world (it could be a toy, a person, something that you enjoy doing) so that you can share it with your friends.

 

When using Google Classroom, only log in a couple of minutes before your meeting is due to start. If you are on before your teacher, leave the meeting and try again nearer to the time.

Warm up 5-10 mins

Have some time to practise your new spellings on Spelling Shed

Main Activity 40-45 mins

Over the next couple of days, we will be doing some writing about a poem called ‘Life Doesn’t Frighten Me’ by Maya Angelou (see resources). Read it through first of all. What do you notice about it? What do you like about it? What does it make you think about? Then we are going to think of some rhyming pairs. You will need the rhyming dictionary for this (see resources). I have chosen some words that you will need to make rhyming pairs with:

Park

Dream

Door

Bat

Telephone

Zoo

Step 1 make the word above into frightening (or a nonsense) sentence. You could use scary describing words or talk about something/somebody doing something there. In this sort of poem, they don't have to make sense. 

E.G A gruesome ghost in a park / or A scary monster hiding in a park.

Step 2 choose a word from the rhyming dictionary to rhyme with the first word and turn that into a scary idea     

E.G A goblin hiding in the dark

Draw pictures to illustrate your ideas

Main Activity 40-45 mins

Today we are going to write our own version of ‘What is Pink?’ by Christina Rossetti. Use the writing prompt to help you (see resources) Write each question and then your own answer. You can use some of the ideas that you came up with yesterday. Your version doesn’t have to rhyme and you can just write the question and then the answer. E.g.

 

What is pink? A baby precious as gold is pink

What is red? A luscious cherry when it’s ripe is red

 

Remember to extend your ideas like we did yesterday by:

  • Using an ‘ing’ verb e.g. a splendid rose growing in a summer garden is pink.
  • Using the word ‘when’ to add detail e.g. the sky when it’s the middle of summer is blue.
  • A simile to compare something about the item to something else (but not the colour) e.g. a cloud as a soft as a marshmallow is white

Hi Year 3,

 

Welcome to another day of learning at home. There isn’t any rain forecast today so try to get some exercise and fresh air outside if you can.

 

Today, for the live session, I am going to teach the English input (below) to both the children in school and the children at home at the same time. This will start at 9.30 a.m. We would like to trial this approach to see if it is successful. If you cannot attend, that is absolutely fine, you should still be able to do the lesson by following the instructions below.

  • A simile to compare something about the item to something else (but not the colour) e.g. a cloud as a soft as a marshmallow is white

Main Activity 40-45 mins

Today we are going to look at the poem ‘What is Pink?’ by Christina Rossetti. We are going to be working towards writing our own versions. First of all read the poem (see resources) and think about what you like about it? Are there any words that you don’t understand? (ask a grown up to explain them) Does it rhyme? Can you spot the rhymes? After that choose at least four colours from the poem. If you really want a challenge you could choose all eight, but only if you want to. Then I would like you to think of as many things as you can that are that colour. Try to pick things that would fit into the poem – things from the natural world animals, plants, flowers, fruits, places etc. After each word draw, draw a picture to show what it is and colour it in. You could make your lists even better by:

  • Using adjectives to describe e.g. a beautiful, springtime daffodil

It’s my first time of using Google Classroom as well so, I have everything crossed that our first meet will be a success!

 

I have emailed out the logins so check your Purple Mash email inbox. Mr Moore also re-sent all of the information that your parents will need to log you in, in his letter yesterday. Today we will have a quick catch up with each other and go through the rules of how to use Google Classroom sensibly. If you would like to bring your favourite Christmas present from home to share with your friends online then that would be lovely, but you don’t have to.

Good morning everyone and Happy New Year!!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families and that Santa brought you lots of exciting things.

 

I’m so sorry that we’re not going to be together as planned, because I was really looking forward to seeing you all and hearing about what you’ve been up to and I know that you must be really excited about seeing all of your friends again.  Unfortunately, at the moment, we have to stay at home to keep one another safe and our families safe as well. Although home learning isn’t quite the same as being in school, it doesn’t mean that our lessons won’t be fun. Don’t worry if you can’t do all of the things that I’ve set. I know that mums and dads are trying to work as well. All that I ask is that you try your best just like you do in school.

 

For today, all of the learning will be here on the webpage and also on Purple Mash. I will also be emailing (on Purple Mash) logins and reminders of how to access Google classrooms as there will also be some live lessons, but more of that later!

We are going to write a letter to Mr Moore explaining what we did over the Christmas holidays and also what we hope for the New Year. I’ve put an example of how to set an informal letter in the resources. Remember to:

  • Put your name and address on the right of the page
  • Leave a line
  • Put today’s date
  • Leave a line
  • Put Dear Mr Moore on the left of the page

Then we’re going to have 3 paragraphs (if you’re not sure about how to do those then just try and write about as many of the things as you can)

First paragraph

This can be very short. It’s just to say why you’re writing – to tell him about your amazing holiday!!

Second paragraph

Is all about Christmas. Let him know:

  • Your favourite present/
  • What you had for Christmas dinner
  • What is most important to you at Christmas time?
  • What special memory will you take from this Christmas?
  • What do you hope for next Christmas?

Third paragraph

Is all about the New Year and new beginnings. Tell Mr Moore:

  • One thing you did to celebrate New Year
  • What do you hope for 2021?
  • What are you excited about for 2021?
  • What would you like to get better at this year?
  • Do you have any new year’s resolutions?

Then do a brief sign off and say who it’s from.

Today we are going to write a bonfire night acrostic poem. There is a special sheet in the resources section with the letters down the side or you could write the letters yourself in your book. Make each letter two lines big and leave one line in between each letter.

I have also included a word bank with some possible words that you could use to start each line, but of course, if you have your own ideas please use those. When you are thinking of ideas:

  • Think of the sights and sounds of the fireworks
  • The sights and sounds of the bonfire.
  • Think about the darkness, the weather, what people will be wearing etc.
  • Think about Guy Fawkes and why we celebrate bonfire night
  • Think about Bonfire Night safety and things to remember
  • Use adjectives e.g. glittering, sparkling etc.
  • Use similes e.g. comparing something to something else e.g. Fireworks, as sparkling and shimmering as diamonds in the sky

Afternoon

 

Hi Guys,

This afternoon we normally do P.E so I thought it might be fun to do a Jo Wick’s workout. Click on the link below and have a fun workout Spider Man style!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Z05939ZMbE

 

After P.E, I thought it might be nice to chill out with some bonfire night art activities. I have put some in the resources below or there are lots on Purple Mash to choose from so you could do some of those if you wish.

If you have completed the Bonfire night activities on Purple Mash (and lots of you have and they’re absolutely fab) I would like you to make a Bonfire Night safety poster. In the resources below, there are a couple of PowerPoints to look at all about being safe on Bonfire Night. There is also a quiz to do and a song to learn as well. After you have done that design a poster to explain to everyone what they should do to be safe on bonfire night. Make sure that:

  • Your posters are bright and attractive (maybe use bubble writing to attract the reader’s attention.
  • Use pictures – You could start by drawing a bonfire in the middle of your page or a large firework. Or you could put the important messages in exploding fireworks in the sky
  • Make it look bright. We want to make sure that people take notice of these posters after all.

 

Well that’s the end of another day everyone. I hope you have a safe and happy Bonfire Night and I’ll see you all again tomorrow for our last day!!!

Best Wishes

Hi everyone and welcome to our second day of learning at home!!  Many thanks to all of you who sent me work on Purple Mash. It was really fun getting to see all that you’ve been doing at home.

 

As with yesterday, I've put everything that you will need as either a link or in the resources section below. If you do have any issues, please drop me an email as I will be able to get back to you straight away.

 

On Thursday and Friday afternoon, I am going to set some creative activities to do for Bonfire night and Diwali. As some of these need simple resources e.g. cooking ingredients or simple craft items, I've added them in the resources section today so that you have a little bit of time to organise the things that you will need. If you haven't got any of these items, then fear not, as I will also include other work on those days that does not require things that you might not already have around the house. 

Best wishes

Play antonym search. An antonym is the opposite of something e.g. day/night  big/small happy/sad. Help the frog to catch the antonyms by clicking on the correct one.

https://www.arcademics.com/games/frog

 

Main activity 40/50 mins

Today, we are going to learn all about Kennings poems. These are a type of Norse poem that describes something in two words without naming it e.g:

Ghost

White spooker

Mean scarer

Dream haunter

Vampire

Blood drinker

Neck grabber

Neck biter

 

So, in order to complete the task, you need to choose an adjective (describing word) or a noun (naming word) and usually a verb (think about what the thing does and then add 'er' to the end).

The PowerPoint below explains them in greater detail and gives lots of examples. Once you get the idea, please write some Kenning poems of your own. There are two tasks to choose from.

Task one: write some 2 word kennings for a range of seasonal nouns. See sheet attached for some ideas. Write the kenning and then draw a little picture next to it to show what it is.

Task two: Split your page into four and choose four different subjects to write longer kennings about. You could choose your own subjects or choose some from the examples below. For each Kenning, try to write at least three lines or if you are feeling really inspired you could write as many lines as you can.

Volcanoes  A Pet (dog/cat)   Mum   Dad   baby brother or sister   teacher   a season e.g. winter  Ice cream    pizza    yourself

I’ve included a planning sheet below as well to help you to write one about yourself.

 

Reading Time

I hope that you enjoyed the first lesson of ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ by Phillip Pullman. It’s an amazing book and, when we get back to school, I would love to be able to share the rest of it with you.

Lesson 2

In this lesson, we are going to focus upon answering comprehension questions from the text:

HOME LEARNING 3/11/20

 

Good morning year 3!! I’m really sorry that we can’t be together for the first week after half term, but I am going to do my best to make learning at home fun and enjoyable, so get yourself comfy and make sure that you have something to write with: a pen (if you use one in class) or pencil and some paper (your homework books should be fine for this).

We will be following our normal timetable as closely as we can. All the resources and clips that you will need are listed below.

I have also set lots of work on Purple Mash. Please don’t feel as though you have to do all of it, but if you feel like a change there is lots on there and I am sure that you will find something that you will enjoy.

If you need any help, please email me on Purple Mash. Also if you would like to send me any of the brilliant work that you’ve been doing – you can also do that on Purple Mash. Or you just might want to say ‘Hi’ and let me know how you’re feeling – that would be great too!! I’d love to hear from you guys.

 

Best wishes

Maths

This week we are going to be doing subtraction which we would have been doing in class. Each day there will be a short teaching clip and a worksheet to complete afterwards. I am going to set two levels of challenge.

Level 1 is slightly easier (If you normally work with Mrs Lyth or Mrs Wibberley this will be for you)

Level 2 is more challenging (everyone else I would like you to have a go at this)

 

10 minute warm up: 

Play this fun number word fruit splat game. You can choose the level that suits you best:

http://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/spookySpellings/index.html

 

Main activity 40/50 mins

Today we are going to learn all about calligrams. These are a kind of one word poem where the writer designs the letters so that they look like what the word means. Click on the video clip below and then look at the PowerPoint in the resources tab at the bottom.  These should give you a good idea of what a calligram is and also lots of ideas to help you make your own.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2P7UDPec5Gc

So today, I would like you to design some calligrams. Please choose eight words to make into calligrams. You could either choose some words of your own or I have listed some below that you might want to choose from. Have fun, use colours as well. You might want to use bubble letters as these give you lots of space to do the designs inside. These usually look really good if you have spent lots of time on them. I have also included some large words in bubble writing (which you could decorate) just I case you find it difficult to do your own bubble writing.

Halloween     Bonfire night   colourful   rainbow    spotty   zig zag    flowers   tree   zebra    summer

Autumn   volcano   hot   freezing   rainy    snowing   spiders

 

Reading Time

We normally have reading time now. Unfortunately, all of the Worst Witch books are in school, but don’t worry!! I have found some reading lessons for us to do this week while we are at home. They are all about a book called ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ by Phillip Pullman which even has a volcano in it. You don’t need a copy of the book to do the work. You just have to watch the clips and complete the activities. But I hope that it will make you want to read this wonderful book. Maybe some of you already have it at home? Please let me know if you like it.

Lesson 1

In this lesson, we are going to listen to a bit from the story and learn about the vocabulary from the text. Please watch the clip below

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-engage-with-the-text-c9h3je

 

If you don’t read the Worst Witch with us normally, please take this time to read your home reading book to an adult at home.

 

Lunch time

Well done guys – we got to lunch time!!! I know it’s not quite the same as usual, but I hope that you’re having fun.

We usually have lunch about now so take this time to have something to eat, play outside if you can or have some time to chill, relax and unwind from this morning’s learning. 

 

Afternoon

 

Hi Guys,

This afternoon we normally do ICT. So I have set us an ICT task on Purple Mash. Please log on using the passwords which should be in your planners.

I’ve set us a task about simple programming which is fun. Once you open it on Purple Mash, you should see a symbol in the top right hand corner that looks like a play button. Please click on it and the lesson will begin. You will need to click on each of the white tabs. These will show you a short video clip to explain the process. (see resources below for a screen shot to show you what it looks like). Once you have watched them all, you should be ready to do your own programming. Good luck!!!!

Once you have completed the activities, then please have some time on Spelling Shed to practise your spellings. We will have a test on Wednesday as usual.

Well done everyone on completing your first day of home learning. See you all again tomorrow. Take care everyone!!

Welcome to Year 3 !!!

 

Our lead topic this term is a geography based topic 'What Makes the Earth Angry?' This is a really exciting topic all about volcanoes and fits very nicely with our science based topic 'What do Rocks Tell Us About the Way the Earth was Formed?'. During the topic, we will learn all about what is beneath the ground and different types of rock

 

  •  P.E is on a Monday and Thursday

 

Please note that in the event of a school closure home learning will be posted on this web page and also on Purple Mash

 

General information

 

  • Please read with your child 4 times per week and make a note of this in their planners. As soon as your child has completed their book, please return it to school so that it can be changed for a new text. 
  • Spellings will be sent home weekly. These can be practised by using the Spelling Shed app (logon details in the front of planners). 
  • Your child will be tested on their spellings every Wednesday.
  • This year homework will be given out for the whole term. There will be a 'Pick and Mix' document with different activities to choose from. There will be enough for 1 activity per week. We will not collect homework in on a weekly basis (to reduce the risk of transmission) but please feel free to send any photographs of work on the week before the Christmas break (using Purple Mash) so that we can share and celebrate the children's achievements. 
  • It is also very important that your child learns their times tables. We have daily tests in school, but it would also be extremely useful if you could also practise these at home. This can be done using the Times Tables Rock Stars app (login details in the front of planners). The class teacher will have pre-selected the appropriate times tables for your child to access. 
  • Below are a range of helpful documents and web pages including our new Knowledge Organisers for Maths and Grammar. They set out key expectations and vocabulary expected in Y3. We hope that you find them useful.
