Primary School

Year 3 Home Learning Monday 05.07.21

Welcome to the start of a new week! We hope that you are all well and had a lovely weekend.  Today is our final live lesson before returning to school tomorrow.

Reminders

Year 3 will be having Sports Day on Wednesday, so please make sure you come in your PE kit. This will be an in-school event only, with no visitors. We are looking forward to having lots of fun.

As well as Wednesday, please wear your PE kits on Tuesday and Friday.

Due to spending Monday learning at home, we will be having our spelling test on Tuesday and our times table test on Wednesday next week.

 

English – Guided Reading

L.O: To retrieve and record information from non-fiction.

For our English work today, we are going to focus on Guided Reading.  We have chosen to read around the topic of Castles, as this links really well to our DT unit that we have started in school. There are two tasks today and the resources you will need  are at the bottom of the blog.

Task One

We would like you to read through the PrimaryWorks – Castles PowerPoint.  We would like you to take your time and enjoy reading through the PowerPoint slides, thinking carefully about the new information.  If you are able to read with an adult, they could perhaps ask you some questions to check your understanding of what you have read.

Once you have read through the PowerPoint, we would like you to record at least 5 facts that you have learnt.   Please write neatly and check each fact for accurate punctuation, remember to use a capital letter at the start of each sentence and a full stop at the end.

Task Two

Then there is a pdf called Castles – Short Comprehension, we would like you to read the text (it is much shorter than the PowerPoint, only two paragraphs).  We would then like you to use the text to have a go at answering the questions on Page 1 (also, see below) in full sentences.  You can also include any extra details that you learnt from the Task One PowerPoint to give your answers even more detail.

  1. Who lived inside castles in the past?
  2. Which is the biggest castle in the world?
  3. What is the name of the ditch filled with water?
  4. Who lives in Windsor castle?

Remember to use capital letters at the start of proper nouns! Read your work through to check for sense.

Once you have had a go at Task Two, you can scroll down on the pdf to page 2 to check your answers.

 

Maths

L.O: To be able to subtract volumes and capacities.

Following on from our adding last week, we are going to learn how to subtract volumes and capacities today. In the live lesson, we will look at some problems and practise using column subtraction to work out answers.

For your independent task, you can choose your own level of challenge. If you miss the live lesson or want to go over anything again, have a look at the PowerPoint attached to the bottom of this.

10 Minute Maths: We have also added a 10 minute maths slide to this blog. Today your challenge is about problem solving with missing numbers.

 

History Task

L.O: To find out about life in Roman Britain

Today we are going to discover what it was like to live in Roman Britain. We would like you to read through the slides on the PowerPoint and answer the following questions:

  • How many kilometres of road did the Romans build in Britain?
  • What is the name of the square in a Roman town?
  • What does the word ‘gladiator’ really mean?
  • In what directions did the two main roads in each Roman town run?
  • Why were there slopes on either side of the roads Romans built?
  • How did the actors in Roman plays help the audience to recognise the different characters they were playing and the emotions they were feeling?
  • What was the floor of a Roman public bath decorated with?
  • What could you see in a Roman amphitheatre?

 

You can choose how you present your answers. You might want to make a fact file, you could write the answers using paragraphs or create a poster with lots of information on it. We are looking forward to seeing your work.

 

Challenge: Using the information on the slides, create 3 questions about the Romans and ask them to someone at home. Let us know how they got on!

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 welcoming the children back in school on Tuesday 6th July.

Mrs Bromley, Mrs Coaten and Mrs Kenny.
