Year 3 Home Learning Blog 30 - 22.6.20

Hello again! We hope you have had a good weekend and are all ready for another week of learning. As always, we will continue to add new blogs with a selection of tasks to complete every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

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.

English Task:

Today we would like you to continue to work on the George and the Dragon tasks that we have set in the word document below.  You will be writing word banks then practising writing and improving sentences. 

 

Maths Task:

On Friday, we asked you to continue to practise telling the time. The Year 3 adults have been very impressed with how hard you have all been working to learn how to tell the time. Well done!

Today we are going to ask you to remember how many days there are in each month and use this to complete some activities.

At the bottom of the blog, we have attached a poster to help you remember how many days there are in each month of the year. Can you remember the rhyme off by heart? It is absolutely fine if you know a slightly different rhyme to help you, the one below is just one example.

We would like you to select an appropriate colour challenge and have a go at completing the tasks.

 

Topic Task:

Romans

Today we will be finding out about who was in Britain when the Romans invaded and be learning about their way of life.

Task

Explore the pdf slides attached below.  Then we would like you to write an information text about the Celts using subheadings.  Below are some suggestions for the subheadings you could use, using the information in the pdf slides to help you.  Remember that you can include diagrams, pictures and fact boxes.  Also remember to write neatly and use accurate punctuation.  You can of course add your own research too!

Subheadings you could use:

  • Who were the Celts? (slide 3)
  • Living (slide 5)
  • Celts as farmers (slide 6)
  • Clothes (slide 7)
  • Description from Diodorus Siculus (slide 8)
  • Celts as warriors (slide 9)

     

 

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. – We know many of you have been enjoying Joe Wicks’ daily PE workout on his YouTube channel. Whilst he has now stopped his daily sessions, it is still possible to view every PE session on his YouTube channel. 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.
