Year 3

Y3W,
I hope you are all well! 
Can you believe that it is finally the last day in Y3W? I can't! It is also my last day in James Brindley. It has been an honour and a pleasure being your teacher and I will miss you all dearly. I have loved every moment of it and I have memories that I will take with me.  
Have a great summer. Relax. Enjoy the sunshine (if we get any) and be safe!
Mrs. Holt is amazing and I know that you will all have an unforgettable Y4 in Y4H! 
I will still be in contact with the school from time to time and look forward to finding out how you are all doing. 
Until we meet again, it is bye for now. 
Mr. Welsh   
 
 

Hi everyone, we hope that you’ve had a great weekend. It’s our last week in year 3!!! We can’t believe that a year has gone by so quickly!! We know that it’s been a bit of a strange end to our year, but we are really proud of you all for trying so hard and we also know that Mr Stanfield and Mrs Holt are really looking forward to having you in their classes next year. If you haven’t seen their welcome to Year 4 clips yet, then check them out:

https://www.jamesbrindleyprimary.com/y4-induction-2020/

https://www.jamesbrindleyprimary.com/y4s-induction/

We hope you enjoyed Virtual Sports Week. Well done to all of you who took part and many thanks for the daily score updates.

This week, we are going to carry on looking at measures and data handling in maths. We’re also going to carry on with Mr Gum and there are also some other fun transition tasks to help you think about your move to Year 4.  As before, there is no need to do all of the work. Decide, with an adult, which ones suit you best. Also, as always, don’t forget to check out Purple Mash. There are many different writing, reading, maths, science and history tasks on there so you should be able to find something that you will enjoy doing. Also, if you prefer writing rather than typing there is no reason why you couldn’t choose something from Purple Mash and then write it in your home/school book. That way you can practise your handwriting at the same time!

Just a note to parents/carers, if you do need any more support or guidance we are contactable through Purple Mash https://www.purplemash.com/#tab/pm-home

Have a great week everyone. We are missing you!!

Happy Friday everyone !! It's a bit of a sad day today, not only because it's your last day in year 3, but also because we are saying goodbye to Mr Welsh. Unfortunately, he will be leaving us to go to another school. We wish him all the luck in the world and I'm sure that the children at his new school will enjoy having him as their teacher just as much as you have. 

 

Have a fantastic summer everyone, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all in September.

Hi everyone, we hope that you’ve had a great weekend. It looks like it’s going to be a rainy again this week, but don’t worry we’re going to have lots of fun. It’s also Virtual Sports Week this week and Mrs Sharrock has thought of lots of fun activities for you to do at home. You don’t need much time, space or equipment, but just check it’s okay with an adult before you do them. All the instructions are in the resources for this term (see above). Don’t forget to send your results ever day on Purple Mash so that we can send the scores to Mrs Sharrock and she can see which house has got the most points. Good luck!!!

As with last week, we are going to post a whole week’s worth of activities and resources so you can get it all ready before hand.

This week, we are going to carry looking at measures in maths (different ones of course), carry on with reading Mr Gum and there are also lots of other fun things to choose from as well. As before, there is no need to do all of the work. Decide, with an adult, which ones suit you best. Also, as always, don’t forget to check out Purple Mash. There are many different writing, reading, maths, science and history tasks on there so you should be able to find something that you will enjoy doing.

  • Try and use amazing adjectives e.g. scrumptious instead of nice.
  • You could use numbers e.g. ten lovely lemon fizz bombs to fizz on your tongue

  • Think of what they might do to your tongue or mouth. E.g. Sour fizzers that explode like fireworks in your mouth. OR  Blackcurrant boiled sweets that turn your mouth as black as the night sky.
  • Think about how you might feel when you eat them E.g. Fabulous fruity chews that make you smile from ear to ear.
  • Think of using sounds that you might hear when you eat them E.g. Crunch!! Crack tremendous toffee pieces.

Main activity 45/50 mins

 

Reading: Please re-read the next chapter of our new book: You’re a bad man, Mr Gum! (see resources) Alternatively, log in to Oxford Owl and choose a text at your home reading level. If you feel as though you need a change, there are some reading comprehensions on Purple Mash about life in the Stone Age. Or if you have Y3 style books at home, maybe you could read one of those to an adult and talk about it.

 

Option 1:  Today we are going to make calligrams. These are simple single word poems where the shape and design of the letters show the meaning of the word in a visual way. I have put some examples in the resources to show you what I mean. When making calligrams:

  • Choose a word
  • Think of its meaning
  • Decide how you are going to shape, colour or design the letters to make them reflect the words meaning.
  • Bubble letters are often good to use as you can colour them or add little pictures to help the letters reflect the meaning of the word.

You can choose your own words for calligrams or choose some of the ones listed below. Good luck!! This is a fun activity and they usually look great!!

Grow   shrink   big   flower    small    bumpy   rainbow   sunshine   dog   cat   bat   colourful  beautiful  tree   fire   rain

 

Option 2: Today we will learn all about subordinate clauses. These sound complicated, but they aren’t really and they will also make your letter sound very grown up: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/spag-focus-subordinate-clauses

Hi everyone, we hope that you’ve had a great weekend and didn’t let all the rain spoil your fun. It looks like it’s going to be a rainy week which is a shame because you won’t be able to go outside as much, but don’t worry we’re going to have lots of fun and at least it won’t be as hot in doors, so it will be easier to concentrate. Whatever the weather, Joe Wicks is still a great way to start your day and will help to get your brain working: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

As with last week, we are going to post a whole week’s worth of activities and resources so you can get it all ready before hand.

 

This week, we are going to look at measures in maths, carry on with reading Mr Gum and you could even write a setting description as a junior engineer in a Robot workshop! As before, there is no need to do all of the work here – Decide, with an adult, which ones suit you best. Also, as always, don’t forget to check out Purple Mash. There are many different writing tasks on there ranging from pop star/football star profiles, smoothie making and recipe writing activities, poetry, stories. Also, if you prefer writing rather than typing there is no reason why you couldn’t choose something from Purple Mash and then write it in your home/school book. That way you can practise your handwriting at the same time!

 

Just a note to parents/carers, if you do need any more support or guidance we are contactable through Purple Mash https://www.purplemash.com/#tab/pm-home

 

Have a great week everyone. We miss you lots!!

If you feel as though you need a change, there are some reading comprehensions on Purple Mash about life in the Stone Age. Or if you have Y3 style books at home, maybe you could read one of those to an adult and talk about it.

 

Option 1: This week we have met a brand new character, Polly, who looks like she might give Mr Gum a run for his money! Today, we are going to start off by drawing a nice picture of Polly in our books. There are a couple to copy from the book or you could make up your own. Underneath that, you are going to write about Polly. Today you can choose your own subheadings to structure your writing. I have listed some ideas below, but there is no reason why you couldn’t choose your own. There is plenty of information about her in the chapter, but as this is a creative writing piece, you might have to make up some details of your own. Here are some ideas for subheadings:

  • Appearance
  • Likes/dislikes
  • Favourite things
  • Friends/family
  • School life
  •  

Option 2: This week we are going to build up to write a setting description. You are going to pretend that you’re an engineer who constructs their own robots and you are going to describe the place where you work. It sounds fun. In the first lesson, you will complete a reading comprehension and do some fact retrieval to help you do the setting description at the end of the week.

Option 1: Today, you are going to pretend that you are Polly and that you write a persuasive letter to Mr Gum to try and persuade him not to poison the dog. I’ve included a letter template in the resources to help you to remember how to set out a letter. You will have to make her address up. In the letter make sure you have a paragraph for:

  • Introduction – remember Mr Gum doesn’t know you so you will have to introduce yourself and give a few details about you and your life.
  • Explain why you’re writing – tell Mr Gum what the purpose of this letter is – to tell him not to poison the dog.

Then come up with as many reasons why it’s a bad idea (remember if you are to persuade him then you’ll need a few reasons. I’ve listed a few underneath, but I’m sure that you can come up with some of your own:

  • It’s cruel
  • Dogs are nice creatures
  • It’s against the law
  • The R.S.P.C.A wouldn’t like it.
  • Your neighbours won’t want to speak to you anymore.
  • It could be dangerous. The dog might bite you.

Also use some persuasive language as well. Things like: Don’t you realise…?  Can’t you see that…..?

Another good reason is…… Most people believe that …….

 

Option 2: Carry on with the work towards creating your own setting description. Today’s lesson is another comprehension, but today we are going to focus on word meaning. https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/setting-description-reading-comprehension-word-meaning

  • Include the dialogue between yourself and the shop keeper.
  • Remember to use speech marks
  • Remember to use a new line for each new speaker.
  • Use time words e.g. first, next, after that

Mr Kingsley and Mr Welsh

Hi everyone, we hope you are doing well and are enjoying working from home. We are going to do things a little differently from now on because we are going to upload work for the whole week and also the resources to give you a little more time to plan and get ready to do your best work.

 

If you have been doing the pencil and paper tasks that we set each day, well done and keep going!!  It will be really nice to see all of your work when we get back to school.

 

We would also like to say a big thank you and well done to all those children who have been sending work through Purple Mash. We have both really enjoyed reading it and making comments. It’s so nice to see the work that you’ve been doing. We have also really enjoyed receiving emails from some of you as well. It’s nice to hear how you are getting on.

 

Whichever way you choose to do your work, we realise that it must be hard, especially when you cannot be with your friends. Just keep on trying hard and try to do a little each day.

Option 1: Poor Mr Gum doesn’t have any friends, but after reading the first chapter this is hardly a surprise is it?! So we’re going to help him! Today let’s write Mr Gum some instructions to help him to make some new friends (as he obviously doesn’t understand where he’s going wrong!!) Remember to:

  • Use a title e.g. Some instructions to help Mr Gum find new friends.
  • Use subheadings e.g. You will need and What to do
  • Write a list of what you will need. This is probably best done after re-reading the first chapter. Remember to use commas in a list E.g. some soap, a bottle of shampoo, a scrubbing brush, a smile, some friendliness
  • Put each instruction on a new line and also use numbers to direct the reader.
  • Use simple time words e.g. firstly, next etc.
  • Make sure that after each instruction you include a sentence to explain why Mr Gum has to do it. Unfortunately Mr Gum does not understand what he is doing is wrong so we need to explain why it’s a good idea. E.gFirstly, please stop picking your nose. Most people find this disgusting and they won’t like you if you do this. Then, you will have to learn to love children. Most of them are really very nice you know especially if you are nice to them.

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?!

Before you start to write maybe you could do some hot seating. You will need a partner for this either a grown up or a brother or sister. You could pretend to be grandma and get them to ask you some of the questions listed above. Try and be s imaginative as possible when you answer.

  • Use adjectives to make bold claims about what the medicine can do e.g. This incredible medicine can give us giant pigs!! Imagine all that bacon!!!
  • Ask the reader to imagine life with this wonderful new product. Imagine all the school meals you could make with that!
  • End with a short paragraph to sign off e.g. thank him for listening to you and ask him to send you the money soon!

  • Explain what happened next e.g. her growing through the ceiling etc.
  •  Talk about your hopes e.g. what do you hope will happen to grandma next? E.g. I hope that now she’s enormous she will go off and annoy other people.
  • Talk about your fears. What do you think mum and dad will say? Are you afraid of what grandma might do now she’s a giant?

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.
  • Super recipe instructions might also have handy hints in brackets e.g. Firstly stir in some spooky spiders (the stripy ones work best).

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.
