Hello Maple and Redwood Class,
Things are changing slightly on the blog. Instead of posting every day, we are going to post your tasks for the week.
For English and maths there will be 5 lessons available. It would be amazing if you could complete one a day, but we know this isn’t possible for everyone, so aim for at least 3.
There will also be 3 other tasks to complete which will be the wider curriculum as well as spellings. These may be science, geography, history, PSHE, PE, computing, art or D&T.
Please do your best to let us know how you are getting on with tasks. Either leave a comment (as short or detailed as you wish!) or send us an email:
One of us will post a video at least once a week so keep an eye on the blog for those to appear.
Take care everyone,
Miss Bailey & Mr Bettles
We will be using the English lessons on https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/year-3/english/#subjects
Work through the lessons in order as they build over the week. Click ‘click to start lesson’ and then most of them begin with a quiz, complete the quiz and then click ‘close quiz’. Then press ‘next activity’ on the bottom right to work your way through the lesson. There are often videos with slides to work through and a task to complete at the end.
Remember you can always pause the video if you need more time to complete a task.
We will be using Maths lesson on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/
As this is the first time Year 3 have accessed this website, we ask that you start at week 1 (Unit and non-unit fractions).
- Watch the video.
- Complete the activity.
- Check your answers.
If you’ve made a mistake can you figure out why?
Keep learning your Year 3 / 4 common exception word list (there should be a copy in your reading record, your home learning pack and you can also find them online).
Spelling task – Song or Rap
Pick some words from the 3 / 4 common exception word list and make a song or rap. You can include as many words as you wish and send them over once you have finished.
Wider Curriculum Task 1 – Science
Forces – What is a force?
Forces are just pushes and pulls in a particular direction.
Forces are shown by arrows in diagrams. The direction of the arrow shows the direction in which the force is acting. The bigger the arrow, the bigger the force.
Create a poster with the information you have learnt.
Explain the difference between a balanced force and an unbalanced force.
Make note of when you use difference forces around the house during your daily activities.
Wider Curriculum Task 2 – PSHE
Joshua and Reilly are the best of friends. When Joshua moves to America with his family, Reilly explains that even though Joshua has made new friends in America, they are still best friends. Reilly shows us the different forms of communication they use to keep in touch such as emails and letters.
If you were going to write and email to a friend, who would it be? What would you include in your email? Would you send pictures?
Remember – If you are using the internet to keep safe.
Wider Curriculum Task 3 – Design and Technology
