Year 3 Home Learning Wednesday 27.1.21

Well done for all of your great work in today's live lesson. We hope you are enjoying what is left of the snow. Here are the tasks for tomorrow.

English Task

L.O: To be able to plan a new verse of a poem.

Tomorrow you will be writing your own verse, so today, you will be collecting some brilliant ideas!

The FANTASTICs and use of the senses will help you think of a good variety of ideas.

Think about what you would put in the Magic Box.

Start with a simple idea – for example, a favourite taste (e.g. strawberries). Develop it into a poetic idea with more detail. For example, the sweet taste of strawberries on a summer’s day.

Use the mind map (Magic Box Planning Sheet) to record things you might include in your box - use the FANTASTICs to help. Work through the challenges. You could have the mind map on screen and draw your own box rather than printing.

Yellow Challenge: Taste and smell phrases / adjectives

Blue Challenge: Touch and sound phrases / Different lengths of phrases

Green Challenge: Action phrases / Alliteration included in some ideas

White Challenge: Other lenses / Use of imagery


Maths Task

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

In today’s live lesson, we are going to continue using pictorial representations to help us solve multiplication calculations. When we feel confident, we will move onto using an abstract method. We have attached an example of the abstract method to the bottom of this blog. 

For your independent task, you can choose your own level of challenge. Choose the blue challenge if you would like to continue using apparatus. Choose the green challenge if you would like to continue using the pictorial method. Choose the white challenge if you want to move onto using abstract method. 


Blue Challenge: Download the maths PowerPoint – You will see a blue, green and white table on slide 4. Answer the blue questions using apparatus you can find at home. You might like to take some pictures to show your working out.

Green Challenge: Download the maths PowerPoint – You will see a blue, green and white table on slide 4. Answer the green questions using the pictorial method. 

White Challenge: Download the maths PowerPoint – You will see a blue, green and white table on slide 4. Answer the white questions using the abstract method.


RE Task

LO – To be able to design my own stained-glass window to reflect one of Jesus’ miracles. 

We are continuing to learn about Jesus as an Inspirational Leader.  As we have learnt in previous weeks, in the Bible a miracle is an act by God, where God's presence is shown.  Christians believe that if you come to God, he will provide you with what you need.  There are many stories in the Bible of Jesus’ miracles and so far, we have explored Jesus Feeds the 5000 and Jesus Heals the Paralysed Man.    

Activity: We would like you to read the story of Jesus calms the storm on the PowerPoint.  Read through the PowerPoint slides.   

We would like you to reflect on the miracles that we have learnt about from the Bible stories.  We would like you to also look at the Jesus’ miracles stained glass windows PowerPoint.

When looking at the stained-glass windows we would like you to think about:   

Which of Jesus’ miracles are being shown here?  

How could you describe each window?  

How does each window make you feel? Why? 


Task:  We would like you to make your own stained-glass windows incorporating an element of one of Jesus’ miracles that we have looked at.  (Remember that at Christmas time we designed our own stained-glass window showing a Christmas symbol).  You can use the template that we have attached below, you can create your design on plain paper, or you could get creative and use collage, the choice is yours!  

Extension: You can write some information sentences to go with your stained-glass window to explain what is going on in your design and give some background information.  


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