Welcome to Class 3!
Class 3 Home learning
It was so lovely to see so many of you again this week for our Zoom catch- up, sorry we had to rush a few of the chats - we didn't want anyone to miss out. It was brilliant to see so much of the work and other activities you have been doing, you have all been very busy, well done! After the Easter holidays, I will do a twice weekly Zoom session so we can catch up even more. In the meantime, we hope you all have a lovely Easter break!
If anyone wants to send me an email with any of the work you have been doing at home, please feel free to. I would love to see what you have been able to do. But, don't forget, just do what you can do - I know how unusual this all is.
Keep an eye out below - new work is being added every few days.
Maths - all the children will be sent home with their mathletics log-in details before the end of the week. A number of activities are now available on the site for the children to access. These follow the Year 3 national curriculum areas we have already studied so will allow the children to consolidate and extend their learning at home. There is a range of different activities including reasoning and problem solving. We have uploaded lots of activities but there is no pressure to do them all in one go!
Friday 27th March- We have uploaded a couple of extra sheets for you to do at home. These are to do with multiplication and division. There is a nice power-point to have a look at too. Each sheet has different levels of activities so choose the one that looks best for you.
Wed 1st April - there is a new powerpoint to look at, for some final revision of comparing multiplication and division statements. There is a worksheet for you to complete as well. There is also a nice code cracking activity to finish off this half term's maths learning. Have fun!
There is also a nice Roman numerals exercise - again with different levels!
Times tables - we have told the children to practice all the times tables they have learnt so far. Attached are some sheets they can use to practice at home and have some fun with their tables.
English - this week we have started to look at imperative verbs which will lead onto writing instructions. There are two sheets to have a go at, one for imperative verbs and the other is time adverbials. There is also an interactive power-point as well, as the children might need a reminder about time adverbials.
Mon 30th March - continuing with our topic of instructions, please have a look at the powerpoint which will remind you about the features of instructions. There is then an activity for you to do - you have to highlight the features you can see in a set of instructions for how to make bird feeder. If anyone wants to follow the instructions and make the bird feeder, please do so (hopefully you will find the instructions easy to follow!). There are three more nice activities for you to look at as well, practising your understanding of imperative verbs again.
Weekly spellings - These will be on this page every week, so that the children can keep practising their spellings at home.
SPAG - Please see sheets below and comprehension activities. The Spag sheets are revising the work we have already done on punctuating direct speech.
Wed 1st April - this week's SPAG sheets focus on apostrophes for singular and proper nouns. After Easter we will look at apostrophes for plural nouns. There are two new comprehension sheets - each sheet has different levels of questioning so choose the one which looks best for you.
Topic - We are just finishing off our current topic of 'The Romans'. Some worksheets are available below to allow the children to access what we would have been learning about over the next few weeks. They can design their own mosaic, research about the artefacts (linked to Roman entertainment, gladiators and chariot racing) or make a fact file about their favourite Roman god. The children could also do research into any area of our learning which they have enjoyed to see what else they can find out about.
Our new topic after Easter will be 'Living Planet'. The children can start seeing what they can find out, either using books or the internet or going for a walk (woods, a park or a garden).
Questions to think about:
- What are the living things in my local area? Plants, animals, birds, humans?
- Where do the different living things live? What habitats exist in my local area?
- What do the living things need to survive? Where do they get their food from?
They can draw pictures, write sentences about what they find out or produce a fact-file of information - wherever they want to go with it.
Friday 3rd April - to keep you busy over Easter, there are some word searches and colouring sheets linked to our new topic which we start after Easter. There are also some challenge cards so see what you can start to find out - you might need to use the internet or books for these. There is a nice game to play with your family, helping you to sort animals into groups and a bird watching activity - what can you see in your garden or on your walks?
ART - After Easter, we are going to start studying the work of William Morris. Can you find out about who he was and the style of artwork he created? Do you like his artwork?
Science - we have just finished our work on rocks. The children were going to explore the school grounds to see what rocks they could find. If you can, perhaps they could explore what rocks are in their garden or the local woods and maybe even dig some up and think about the characteristics of the different rocks.
Mon 30th March - our next topic for science after Easter is going to be plants and animals. There are some beautiful spring flowers around at the moment, which you might have in your garden or find out and about on a walk in your local area. You could draw some of the plants and flowers you see and start to think about the different parts of the flowers, what parts do they all have? Can you label your picture of the flower? Science sheets will be uploaded here shortly as well.
P.E. - Don't forget Joe Wicks at 9am!
We appreciate there is a lot of information here, please take your time with it. The children will need plenty of time to rest and relax too after a very busy 4 weeks so far!
Any questions or problems, please do not hesitate to contact us.
