Summer Term

Welcome back, we hope you have all had a lovely break and enjoyed the fantastic weather we have had! As we move into the summer term, we will set activities and work here daily. We will also set the spellings that should be learned over the half term as well as weekly spelling patterns. If possible, spend some time each day reading, practising spellings and working on times tables (3, 4 and 8x).

 

We understand that many parents are working from home, please do not feel any pressure to complete these tasks these are here to support you. Where possible, we will also include ideas that children can work on independently or with a small amount of input. If children do manage to complete these activities, we would love to see pictures or videos of this on our year group email.

 

Stay safe,

When we are writing it is important to think about our audience and adapt language and other parts of our writing so it fits the purpose.  

Read the informal letters in the PowerPoint. Can you identify the different features of the   letters that make them informal and suited to their purpose?  For each of the bullet points try to write down an example from the letter.  

  • Chatty informal language 

  • Conjunctions or adverbs to express time, cause or place 

  • Contractions (two words put together to make it shorter, an apostrophe is used in place of the missing letters e.g. it is  would change to it’s)  

  • Questions 

Also think about how the ending suitable for this type of letter. Is there anything else that makes it informal or suited to its purpose?

Lots of you enjoyed doing your own research about the Vikings so this week’s English involves you doing some independent research.  You are going to find out about a country to help you to write an informal letter (postcard) to a friend later in the week.  

Choose a place that you have visited or would like to visit and carry out some research. You might want to find out more about somewhere you located on a map last week. Think about what sorts of things you might want to tell your friend or family member about. Find about how to get there, describe what it looks like, what facilities are there, what the weather is like, food and different activities you might do there.  Remember to stay safe online! 

 

Organise your research under different subtitles, this will help you when you come to plan and write. Include anything interesting, you might not use it all but it’s better to get it down at this stage.   

e.g. I might research Majorca, here is the start of my ‘travel’ subtitle.  

Travel  

Plane- very noisy take off, flew from Newcastle airport, took about 3 hours.  

Bus- long journey from the airport, very hot, uncomfortable, lots of windy roads.

Half Term Photos

Happy Half Term

 

As it is half-term, we want you to enjoy yourselves this week and make the most of this wonderful weather.  If you want a challenge we have got a list of life skills that you can try to develop, some you may find some easy and some will be hard but if you can try and learn an additional life skills this week that would be amazing. These skills may even make your life easier parents, so they are certainly worthwhile.

w/c Monday 18th May

 

Hello, this is our final week before the half term holiday. We are so proud of all of the hard work you are doing and love seeing the photos to see what you are all up to. 

 

This week the White Rose Maths is repeating some of the fractions work that was carried out earlier on in home learning. Fractions is always very tricky topic with some difficult concepts so it might be good to go over this area again.  We will put the worksheets and video links daily as usual. If you remember the content and want to try something slightly different, BBC Bitesize will have work on fractions this week. Alternatively, if you feel secure with this there are some extra sheets looking at calculation skills,  there are links in the plan to videos. These resources will move down the page as the week progresses so as not to confuse those looking for the usual daily sheets.  

 

This week's English will be taken from Oak National Academy. Over the week children will build on their skills before writing a character description on Friday. We haven't seen a lot of writing, we would love to see some of your character descriptions!

 

Mrs Flowdy and Mr Rippon

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvv8d6f

  • Choose a character or setting from your favourite book and write a description using lots of powerful adjectives. Don’t forget to use your punctuation. Do you think you would be able to include a question? What a great effort it would be if you could also include an exclamation!

 

Other Subjects

Our new topic is Anglo-Saxons and Vikings

Use the first video to introduce you to this topic.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zxsbcdm/articles/zq2m6sg

There is an interactive activity to explore an Anglo-Saxon village and learn about their daily lives. Here are some activities that you might like to try to linked to this topic over the next few days:

  • Draw an Anglo- Saxon village
  • Make an Anglo-Saxon house (cereal boxes might be a good start)
  • Write a description or an advert for a job that the Anglo Saxons would have done.
  • Make a page for a children’s book all about Anglo Saxon life, make it bright and colourful with subtitles to help the reader.
  • Anglo-Saxons weaved to make their clothes. You could have a go a paper weaving (lots of tutorials available on YouTube)
  • Make your own video to tell people about Anglo-Saxon life. (Speak to an adult and follow our internet safety rules before you upload it anywhere!)

Please remember we don’t expect you to do all of this! You might even come up with your own ideas but we would love you to send us some pictures of videos of your work!

Have a lovely day!

  • You could try to make your own fossils too!

 

 

Easter Holiday Fun

Easter Holidays

Well that was a strange half term! Believe it or not we are at the end of term and the start of the Easter holidays. We hope you all have a lovely rest from school work. There are some ideas for activities below but please do not feel like you have to do school work during this time.

 

White Rose maths will still release their daily lessons during the holidays, the videos will not be deleted so please do not feel that children need to complete them straight away. We will assume that you are starting week 3 at the start of the new term on 20th April and will set tasks any appropriate tasks on MyMaths then. Of course if children want to do some work there are many games and activities on MyMaths, Purple Mash and Rockstars that they can continue to work on as well as keeping up with reading.

 

One thing that we have missed with not being in school are all of your easter egg designs! If you are able to decorate a boiled egg please send us photographs by Thursday April 9th and we will display them here.

 

Try not to eat too much chocolate, have a lovely time and stay safe!

Hello Year 3. We hope everyone is well and that you all enjoyed the sunshine that we had last week! Here are a few extra ideas for you to try. The most important things that you can do for home learning is to keep reading and practising your times tables. You should know your 2, 5 and 10x tables and this year we have worked on our 3, 4 and 8x times tables. Don’t forget to go onto Rockstars to practise or try some of the other games or websites that are on the school page.

White Rose have a daily maths video and worksheet. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ Week 1 starts with fractions, we have not covered some of these ideas yet in class so don’t worry if it doesn’t seem familiar but the videos are very good.  There are some great ideas to work through on the question sheets too if you can.

Here are some additional ideas but remember to have fun!

  • Write a newspaper report (there are some lovely templates that you can use on Purple Mash- logins were sent in the home learning packs.)
  • If you have completed the first video about unit and non-unit fractions why not try to make some fractions around the house?  For example if you have Lego, can you make 1/4 of a group of bricks red? Or use pencils, can you make 2/3 of the pencils blue?
  • Design your perfect playground. Think about all of the things that you might like to have there.
  • Check MyMaths https://www.mymaths.co.uk/ as there is some extra work added.
  • Make a spring picture. What different things can you see out of your window now we are in spring?

Enjoy!

Mrs Flowdy  and Mr Rippon
