Early life – Think about where and when she was born. You might want to include information like where she went to school, what her favourite subjects were. Also think about what she was like at school. Has she always been horrible? Maybe something terrible happened to her at school to make her unkind.

Adulthood (being grown up) – You could include information about where she met George’s father and what sort of job she had. Also think about her life as a mother to George’s mum or dad. Was she horrible to them? If so what did she do that was so bad.

General information – Think about what her favourite things might be e.g. food, drink, hobbies. What sort of things doesn’t she like? What makes her angry or cross? What makes her happy? Does anything make her happy?!

If you did yesterday’s lesson you should have a list of alliterative ingredients. Today I would like you to use them in a recipe for a witch’s spell potion. When writing a recipe make sure you use:

  • A title. E.g Wicked shrinking spell
  • Subheadings e.g. Ingredients, method (how to do it).
  • Things like ingredients are lists so use commas.
  • Write each instruction on a new line and use numbers for each one.
  • Use time words like firstly, secondly, then etc.
  • Use some recipe verbs e.g. mix in, stir in, chop, slice etc. Read the example recipes to help you.

Main activity 45/50 mins

Re Read the chapter George Begins to Make the Medicine. Now that you have made your potion create a poster to advertise it. Remember posters are persuasive pieces of writing so make sure that:

  • Your medicine has a name – think of something catchy and think about what it can do e.g. Marvellous Grandma shrinking potion
  • Include a picture of your potion.
  • Write a persuasive paragraph explaining why this potion is so amazing and why you must buy it.
  • Excellent adverts often start with questions (the answers to these are usually the reasons to buy the thing you are advertising). E.g. Do you have an annoying grandmother? Do you find that grown-ups often get in the way? OR it could be a nice potion E.g. Is your grandma kind and in need of a treat? Do you want to reward your favourite person? Then the Amazing wish granting potion is for you!!
  • Use exaggerated language e.g. amazing, incredible, stupendous etc.
  • Make bold claims about what it can do e.g. This amazing potion will change your life!
  • Also people usually buy things that taste, look and smell nice so don’t forget to describe these things in the advert e.g. With bold, multi-coloured stripes and a taste of pure strawberry this potion will make you feel amazing.

Re Read the chapter George Begins to Make the Medicine. Design your own marvellous medicine and write a recipe for it. Set it out like a recipe. See the writing frame example below and use it as a guide to help you set it out in paragraphs in your books. Remember to use

  • A title.

  • Things like ingredients and equipment are lists so use commas.
  • Write each instruction on a new line and use numbers for each one.
  • Use time words like firstly, secondly, then etc.
  • Use some recipe verbs e.g. mix in, stir in, chop, slice etc. Read the example recipes to help you.
  • Super recipe instructions might have more than one sentence. The second sentence is usually helpful and begins with phrases like: ensure that, it is essential to….   E.g. Ensure that you don’t add too much or it might explode!
  • Super recipe instructions might also have handy hints in brackets e.g. Firstly stir in some toothpaste (the stripy ones work best).

 

If you do not do Vipers, then Log on to Oxford Owl and go on the Ebooks and find the Lazy Giant. Read chapter 5.

The police want to arrest the giant for all that he has been doing to the children. Make a wanted poster (see resources) to warn the villagers about him. Make sure that you:

HOME LEARNING INFORMATION

 

As you know, from Friday 20th March school will be closed for a while and because of that we will be asking you to continue your learning at home. We understand that this must seem strange, but we have created a timetable to help you structure your day and help you to carry on making progress while you're at home.  It's really easy - just grab the work books that we sent home and make yourselves comfortable. Each day, we will upload a different Maths and English activity for you to complete.  There is also a ‘Pick and Mix’ document of activities based on our current topics for you to choose from in the afternoon sessions. Some of these tasks may take one afternoon, others may take longer.  We hope that you find them fun and enjoyable and we also hope to see you all again soon.

Easter Holidays

 

Hi everyone!! Below are some special Easter activities that you could complete during the Easter break. We have created a special Easter ‘Pick and Mix’ activity list for you to choose from, but please feel free to complete the activities from the previous ‘Pick and Mix’ list if you prefer. We have also chosen some other Easter activities which are listed below. There is no need to complete all of them unless you wish to do so, but we hope that there will be something on here that you will find fun and engaging.

 

The weather is expected to be nice, so please make sure that you get outside as much as possible and enjoy the sunshine.

 

We would like you to carry on practising your times tables on Times Tables Rock Stars and also your spellings on the Spelling Shed. Also, check out the ‘Oxford Owl’ website. A grown up will need to help you logon, but once you are on you will be able to access a range of free reading books. Just select the online books tab.

 

Many thanks to all of you who have sent messages and photographs of work that you have completed at home. It was really nice to read them and we hope to see you all again very soon.

Have a go at this conjunction game. You need to choose the right conjunction to join the sentences together. 

 

Main activity 45/50 mins

 

All over the world children are drawing rainbows and putting them in their windows as a sign of hope and also thanks to those brave grown-ups who work in special jobs that we need at the moment like nurses and doctors. Today’s task is to write a ‘Rainbow’ acrostic poem. You can use the sheet down below if you like or write it in your home learning book. Just make the letters three lines big and leave a space in between. Watch this clip as it shows lots of nice rainbows and explains why people are doing it.

 

https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/parenting/families-painting-rainbows-windows-spread-17964109

 

When you write your acrostic, remember:

 

  • They don’t have to rhyme.
  • To think about why people are drawing rainbows. i.e. a symbol of hope/ to say thank you.
  • Think about the message that people need to understand at the moment i.e. stay home and stay safe.
  • You can make your verses super poetic by using great vocabulary e.g. adjectives adverbs or using similes (comparisons using like or as) e.g. Nurses and doctors are as brave as superheroes!!

 

Also below is a word bank to help you with ideas. You don’t have to use it, you might have some fantastic ideas of your own! Be creative and have fun! Maybe, once you’ve completed it, you could draw a rainbow (if you’ve not already done so).

Here is a link to a free online reading scheme with a variety of children's e-books.

(click on the picture to begin)

 

Espresso (coding and topic): https://central.espresso.co.uk/    Username: student22316 Password: abc123

Welcome to Year 3 !!!

 

Our lead topic this term is a history based topic 'What was family life like in ancient Greece?' During the topic, we will learn all about family life in ancient Greece, the origins of the Olympic Games, ancient Greek gods and goddesses. Our science based topic 'Why are our bones so important?'. During the topic, we will learn all about the major bones in the body, the forces they are put under and how our skeleton changes with age. Our Art, Design and Technology based topic will look at the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldi and his use of fruit and vegetables in his paintings.

 

  • Year 3W P.E is on a Wednesday and Friday.
  • Year 3K P.E is on a Monday and Wednesday.

 

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 either by using the Spelling Shed app (logon details in the front of planners) or by using the look, cover, write sheet which is available on request. 
  • Your child will be tested on their spellings every Wednesday.
  • One piece of additional homework will also be sent home each Thursday. This is usually Maths or English related. Please ensure that your child completes this and returns it to school the following week. 
  • 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.
