Year 3 Home Learning Blog 41 - 15.7.20
Hello Year 3! Well here we are, we have made it to the end of the school year and to this is our final home learning blog!
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.
We thought it would be good to return to Acrostic Poems for the last English task of the year.
Can you write HOLIDAYS down the side of the page and plan and write a poem starting each line with the correct letter from the word holidays.
You can think about what you have planned to do – maybe you will see friends at the park, visit family, have a day out, play xbox, go on a holiday to the seaside or elsewhere.
You could add illustrations if you like to decorate your work.
Challenge – If you would like to, you could create another acrostic poem with a title of your choice.
We would usually be spending today enjoying being with our friends and playing some games. So today we would like you to come up with your own maths game that you can play with your friends soon. We would like you to design your maths game around one area of maths that we have learnt about this year.
You could choose:
- Ordering and comparing 3 digit numbers
- Reading and writing 3 digit numbers in words and numerals
- Adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers
- Multiplying a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number
- Dividing a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number
- Times Tables
- Telling the time
- Measurement (e.g. length, height, capacity, mass)
We would however love for you to be as creative as possible! You could make a board game, a card game or an obstacle course in your garden! However, you must include some maths!
Remember, we would love to see some pictures of your maths games so feel free to send us an email with a photo of you with your game!
Memories of lockdown!
We would like you to create a piece of work to remember this time! How you present this is up to you, you might like to write about it, draw pictures, make your own video, PowerPoint or create a photo collage to show the things you have been doing, the choice is yours – you will then have something to keep, so you will be able to remember this time.
We would love to see any photographs of your work!
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, he is still doing P.E. with Joe on a Monday, Wednesday and Saturday live on his YouTube channel. It is also 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.
