Year 3 Home Learning Blog 29 - 19.6.20
Hello, we hope you are all having a good week. Here is the last home learning blog of the week.
Please feel free to decide how is best to manage these tasks at home, not each task needs to be completed on the day it is set and if you have some different learning tasks you would like to complete that is also absolutely fine!
The links below also have a variety of lessons suitable for year 3 that you might like to use in addition to or instead of activities in this blog.
Today’s task is to continue with ‘George and the Dragon’. Have a look at the attached document and please work through the tasks again.
We have previously asked you to practise telling the time. Today we would like you to continue with this.
At the bottom of the blog, we have uploaded a range of activities for you to complete depending on how confident you are with telling the time. Feel free to complete as many of the tasks as you would like to! You do not need to print each task, you could just write your answers down.
We have also included a presentation to explain how to convert between analogue and digital times.
If you would like to use it, this link will take you to an online analogue clock which you can use to help practise telling the time. You can also change the clock to show you the time on a digital clock too. You can, of course, practise telling the time on a clock or watch you may have at home!
If you would like to use it, the link below has an online game and some tasks to help you practise telling the time.
Today we will be learning about how and why the Romans invaded Britain. Firstly we would like you to explore the pdf document and where it asks you to share your ideas it would be useful to discuss these points with a grown up or if not you can just think about these questions. Then we would like you to complete the tasks below.
Answer the questions below. Please answer in full sentences and remember to include accurate punctuation.
Who were the Romans? (Use slide 3 to help you)
Who was Julius Caesar? (Use slide 4 to help you)
How did the Romans manage to conquer Britain and who was in charge at that time? (Use slide 5 to help you)
Why did the Roman Army want to invade Britain?
Create an information poster! You can either choose to create a poster on the Roman Army as a whole or you may like to focus your work on a Roman Soldier! Remember to include information, facts and drawings!
Alongside these tasks, please still keep up with the ongoing learning tasks below.
Reading - Our school policy of reading at least five times a week will continue. Please encourage your child to read something every day! They can read different text types - magazines, recipe books, instructions, food labels and anything that they will enjoy! They could read to themselves, to a sibling or another family member.
Spellings – Please use the spellings lists 1-9, 10-20 and 21-28 from the blog post added previously and work from where your child is. Encourage them to write the next set of spellings, perhaps in rainbow colours following the look, cover, write process. Also, it would benefit your child to write them in extended and interesting sentences to show understanding of their use and to ensure they can spell them confidently. Writing the words / sentences in joined up handwriting would also be beneficial. Please also revise random words from previous spelling lists alongside to ensure your child has retained their knowledge.
Times Tables – Ask your child to look back over their times tables in reading diaries and check they can recall the facts quickly and accurately. Then continue learning the next set of tables working through in this order - 10x, 5x, 2x, mix of previous 3 times tables facts, 3x, 4x, 8x, then mix of all the 6 times tables learnt so far. The final tables are tested in the order 9x 11x 6x 7x 12x, so please encourage your child to move on if they are ready to. A link to a useful online game to help with learning tables facts follows below. The children have used this game in school and enjoy the challenge of beating their own score.
P.E. – It is important to stay active so fitness expert Joe Wicks will be hosting a short PE session each weekday morning at 9am on his YouTube channel for children to join in with. https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1
We are also aware that families have a lot to juggle so please just do what you can. Remember, we are here to support you in any way we can. We are happy to be contacted to clarify anything with the learning tasks so please don't hesitate to ask.
We would love to see what your child has been doing. So, if you can, please send us some emails with their work attached or with some photographs of what they have done. If your child would like their work added to the Year 3 blog on the school website, please explicitly state this in your email to us as we cannot post any work without your permission. If you are unable to send it, don’t worry. Please just keep hold of the work for when we are back.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Please look out for future blogs as we will be setting new learning tasks regularly.
Mr Crook, Mrs Coaten and Mrs Kenny.
