Year 3 Home Learning Monday 25.1.21

Thank you children for your continued efforts with your home learning and thank you adults for your support, we hope that you all enjoy a relaxing weekend.  Here is the work ready for Monday, we look forward to seeing the children again in the live lesson. 

English 

L.O: To learn to evaluate how poems are performed.

It would be useful if you could print the poetry performance evaluation sheet before the live lesson or alternatively write the coloured success criteria headings for writing notes under. Thank you.

For a starter today you could play this adverbs game. https://www.sheppardsoftware.com/grammar/games/adverbs/

Today in the live lesson we are thinking about the success criteria for what makes a good performance of poetry. The correct volume, pace, the inclusion of sound effects, use of expression and body actions are all important.

If you can, listen to a variety of poems being performed (if you miss the live lesson). https://safeshare.tv/x/ss60089f5bdb6f5

Listen to all four poems and then listen again one at a time. Complete the evaluation grid or write notes under headings after each poem.

Can you decide on the poem you think was performed the best and explain why.

Following the live lesson, we would like you to practise reciting a poem. Choose one from the sheet. Remember to consider the success criteria. Practise and improve and then perform to your family.

Discuss with your family how it went and how you could improve.

 

Maths 

L.O: To learn how to multiply 2 digits by 1 digit.  

Please bring some objects such as Lego bricks, pasta or buttons to the live lessons this week to help you with your multiplying.

If you are going to miss the live teaching or want to go over anything again, have a look at the attached PowerPoint. We have also attached some place value counters and place value grids at the bottom of the blog. You might want to print these off to help you with your work today or you might want to draw your own place value grid on a piece of paper and use your own objects as place value counters.

In today’s live lesson, we will look at how we can use place value grids and place value counters to solve multiplication calculations. This is known as a concrete method.

For example, 23 is made up from 2 tens and 3 ones. You could put 2 tens counters in the tens column and 3 ones counters in the ones column. We are multiplying by 3, therefore I will need to make  3 rows of 2 tens and 3 ones.  To work out the answer, I would need to count up all of the counters in the tens column (6 tens) and all of the counters in the ones column (9 ones). I then have to add these two amounts together 60 + 9 = 69. Therefore, 23 x 3 = 69.

For your independent task, you can choose your own level of challenge. Your resources are attached at the bottom of the blog.  We would like you to have a go at the blue or green challenge first.

Blue Challenge: Download the maths PowerPoint – You will see a blue and green table on slide 16. Answer the blue questions using the concrete method we talked about in today’s lesson. You might like to take some pictures to show your working out.

Green Challenge: Download the maths PowerPoint – You will see a blue and green table on slide 16. Answer the green questions using the concrete method we talked about in today’s lesson. You might like to take some pictures to show your working out.

White Challenge: Download the maths PowerPoint – You will see a question on slide 17 to have a go at. Remember to press slide show or you will see the answers!

 

Science

LO - To learn that humans and some other animals have skeletons.

Have a look through the PowerPoint. You will learn that vertebrates have a backbone so humans and many other animals are classified as vertebrates. Look at the information about invertebrates and then have a look at the quiz. Can you say which animals are vertebrates and which are invertebrates?

Look at the information about types of skeletons and find out about endoskeleton, exoskeleton and hydrostatic skeletons.

You might like to watch this clip – it shows a blue crab shedding its exoskeleton. https://safeshare.tv/x/ss6005aca641190

Choose a sorting skeletons challenge – if you can’t print, you could draw and label your own sets of animals in the three categories.

Sort animals into the correct skeleton type (1 star).

Sort and then give extra examples of animals for each skeleton type (2 star).

Sort and then state pros and cons of each skeleton (3 star).

The answers are also included so you can check your own work.

 

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
