Year 3 Home Learning Monday 18.1.21

Hello everyone!  Thank you for all of your hard work this week. Here is your work ready for Monday. We hope you have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you in the live lesson on Monday. 

English Task

L.O: To learn the meanings and spellings of some homophones.

Today, the focus is on homophones. If you missed the live teaching or want to go over anything again, have a look at the attached PowerPoint.  You could write some of the homophones from the quiz in some sentences as you look through.

The last slide explains the task. Select the homophones from the previous slides for the blue and green tasks. Choose the colour that is the right challenge for you.


Maths Task

L.O: To be able to recognise and use the 4x table

If you missed the live teaching or want to go over anything again, have a look at the attached PowerPoint. We have been practising recalling x4 multiplication and ÷4 division facts. In order to become confident with the 4x table, we need to bring together our knowledge of multiplying and dividing by 4. We also need to practise using our knowledge in different contexts.

For your independent task, you can choose your own level of challenge. Your resources are attached at the bottom of the blog.  

 Yellow Challenge: Download the yellow maths challenge document – Solve the x4 multiplication statements practically with objects you can find around your house. You might like to take a photo of your working out. Try to write the division statement after you have worked out the answer.

Blue Challenge: Download the blue maths challenge document – Solve questions 1-8. Remember you can choose the A questions or the B questions or a mixture of both. If you scroll down to the bottom of the document, you will find the answers to check your work.

Green Challenge: Download the green maths challenge document – You have some 4x problems. Make sure you explain your answers.  

White Challenge: Download the white maths challenge document – You have some 4x problems. Can you find all of the possibilities?


Science Task

LO - To be able to explore human skeletons. To learn that humans have skeletons for support, protection and movement.

Have a look at the knight slide. Why is the knight wearing a suit of armour? What does this do? Look at the next slide which is a picture of the brain. The brain needs to be protected and is protected by our skull which is part of our skeleton.

Look at the Planbee slides (To explore human and animal skeletons – although today we will just focus on humans). Think about the questions on the slide. Today, we are going to learn about the different bones that make up our skeleton. Look through the slides and have a go at the activities.

Then complete either sheet 5A or 5B – labelling bones in the human body. You can refer to the labelled skeleton to help you learn the bones before you label your own skeleton.

If you can, you might like to watch this BBC Bitesize video clip about skeletons. (Stop at 1.42 before animal skeletons). You could write an interesting fact you have learnt.

Try to remember that skeletons have three important jobs in the body

  • Bones help to keep us upright, we would be floppy without them.
  • They help us to move (along with muscles).
  • They protect some parts of the body, e.g. brain, heart and lungs.

Extension challenge – Can you make your own labelled skeleton?

You could get someone to draw around you on a giant piece of paper and draw in the bones?

You could lay twigs, straws, construction pieces or other found objects on the floor to create a skeleton?

You may have another idea for making a skeleton?

How many bones can you label?



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 daily.
