Year 3 Home Learning Blog 32 - 26.6.20
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.
Please see the Word document attached to continue with the work on George and the Dragon. You will be looking at modelled sentences, creating lists of vocabulary and using this to write your own sentences. There are different levels of challenge so try to push yourself to do as much as you can!
Today we thought it would be fun to complete some maths investigations and puzzles. Have a look at the document below (at the bottom of the blog) and see how many of the puzzles and investigations you can complete.
As an extra challenge, can you come up with your own maths puzzle? If so, we would love to see them!
Today you will be finding out about the results of Boudicca’s revolt. There are some pdf slides below to read and you can also think about the questions raised too. There is a short video link below you can watch with two actors showing a discussion between a Celtic and a Roman man about Boudicca’s invasion of Colchester.
For today’s task you can present your learning about Boudicca’s revolt in your own way. You may choose to do a timeline map with pictures and details of the events, a piece of writing, notes about what happened or even an information poster or a PowerPoint.
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.
