Year 3 Home Learning Friday 02.07.21
Well done everyone, we made it to Friday! We know this has been a completely different week to what any of us expected. Once again, we are so proud of how you have all adapted to the change of not being in school this week. A huge well done to all our amazing Year 3 children and thank you to your grown ups for their support too. You should all feel proud of what you have managed to achieve this week.
Just a reminder, on Monday 5th we will be Home Learning again and then returning to school on Tuesday 6th July.
L.O: To write an information page or booklet ‘All About You’
Today we are going to be continuing on with some transition work that we could share with your new teacher. As we have been working really hard on non-chronological reports, we thought today you could make an information page or booklet ‘all about you’, using features of information texts and some of the features we have used in our non – chronological reports. Again, today we are giving you choice on how you would like to present this. Below are some suggestions to get you started. Feel free to change or add your own ideas too!
Date of Birth:
Brothers or sisters:
My top three favourite foods:
My top three favourite places in the world:
My top three favourite games:
What I like to do at the weekend:
You could also include a fact box!
You can add drawings or diagrams.
You could include some subheadings too, so that you can write in more detail about chosen areas that are important to you. For example,
Days out with my family
I always love going on days out with my family. I like to go to exploring different play areas and sometimes we even get to take a picnic. My most favourite family day out is a trip to the seaside because it is such a special treat. I love to paddle, build sandcastles and eat ice-cream!
L.O: To solve problems.
Today we thought it would be fun to complete some maths investigations and puzzles. Have a look at the document below (at the bottom of the blog) and see how many of the puzzles and investigations you can complete.
As an extra challenge, can you come up with your own maths puzzle? If so, we would love to see them!
10 Minute Maths: We have also added a 10 minute maths slide to this blog. Today your challenge is about problem solving with consecutive numbers.
L.O: To explore an ostinato accompaniment to a rap.
Last week in music, we started to learn the Romans rap and we had a go at saying the rap in 3 groups in canon (as a round).
Use the link below and the PowerPoint to revise what we did last week.
Last week, we listened to the ostinato but we didn’t all have the chance to use the instruments to play this to accompany the rap.
For your task today, use some found percussion (maybe a wooden chopping board and wooden spoon) to play the ostinato along with the video.
Then, explore changing the order of the words to create a new ostinato rhythm and practise playing this alongside the rap.
You might like to include other relevant words (use the Roman soldier uniform PowerPoint to give you ideas). Remember your ostinato needs to fit into the 4 beat steady pulse. Can you create a score of your music by drawing?
Next week in music we would love to explore these ostinato patterns again – so please take in anything you have done.
L.O: To stay fit and healthy.
We know you’re having to isolate at the minute but it is still important to stay fit and healthy. As we are unable to go out, we will have to exercise in our gardens or in a safe space indoors.
Here are some ideas for you:
Have a go at Super Sonic cosmic yoga - https://video.link/w/CUr3c
You might recognise this man from the first lockdown - https://video.link/w/iVr3c
It’s our sports day next week, you could practise:
- Welly throwing
- Egg and spoon race
- Speed bounce
- Long jump
Make sure you ask an adult before you throw someone’s wellies and make sure all pets are safely out of sight! 😊
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.
Please continue to practise spellings and times tables ready for our return to school.
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.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
We are looking forward to seeing the children again on our TEAMS lesson on Monday morning.
Mrs Bromley, Mrs Coaten and Mrs Kenny.
