Year 3 Home Learning Monday 1.2.21

Wow, we are already in the month of February!  We continue to be amazed by your efforts and the positive attitude you have towards your home learning.  Thank you for all the work that you have shared with us.  We hope that you have had a relaxing weekend and are feeling ready for the week ahead. 

English

L.O. To be able to write effective sentences to write a story opener. 

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be writing a story called ‘George and the Dragon’. It is going to follow the structure like we have done before where we collect ideas and then use them to change parts of a given sentence. It is based on the start of a book you may know called ‘George and the Dragon’ and also a video clip (later in the unit). You will be using the FANTASTICS and will be thinking carefully about sentence structure and punctuation.

We will write some sentences together in the live lessons and then there will be some extra sentences to modify for your independent task each day. These will continue the story and we will pick up from that point on the live lesson the following day.

There are pictures from the book to help with collecting ideas. For the tasks you will need to change the highlighted words, phrases and sentences (blue and green highlighting to show challenges). There are also some white challenges too.

Download the document from the bottom of the blog. Work through from the start if you didn’t do the live lesson or find the tasks following the live lesson if you have already done the live lesson tasks.

 

Maths

L.O: To learn how to multiply 2 digits by 1 digit (with exchange)

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

In the live lesson, we will be looking at how we can use a concrete method to solve multiplication where we need to exchange. If you miss the live teaching or want to go over anything again, have a look at the attached PowerPoint. It shows you how you can move your place value counters (or items you have at home) to solve the multiplication calculations.  We have also attached some place value counters and place value grids (H, T, O) 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.

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

Blue Challenge: Download Monday’s maths PPT – Have a look at the table on slide 8. Answer the blue questions using objects from home or place value counters to help you. These questions don’t involve exchange and are useful revision from last week if you feel like you need it.

Green Challenge: Download Monday’s maths PPT – Have a look at the table on slide 8. Answer the green questions using objects from home or place value counters to help you. These questions involve exchanging like the examples we looked at in today’s live lesson.    

White Challenge: Download Monday’s maths PPT – Have a look at the table on slide 8. Answer the white questions using objects from home or place value counters to help you. These questions involve exchanging like the examples we looked at in today’s live lesson.   

 

Science

LO - To learn that humans and some other animals have skeletons for support, protection and movement. To learn about joints in the human body.

Have a look through the PowerPoint (Functions of a Skeleton and Joints) and complete your own choice of activity sheet (1 star), (2 star) or (3 star) at the appropriate times. If you can’t print, just look at the activity and locate the different answers. You could maybe point them out to a grown up. The extra joints PowerPoint gives some extra information for task 3.

White challenge extension – Write sentences to explain why we need joints and explain some differences between them.

The answers for the activity sheets are also included.

 

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