Hello Maple and Redwood Class,
Here are your learning activities for the week.
Following the same structure as before half term, there will be 5 lessons available for Maths and English. There will be 3 wider curriculum activities, as well as a spelling/phonics activity.
Keep an eye on the blog for this week’s videos too.
Take care everyone,
Miss Bailey and Mr Bettles
We have been using the English lessons on Oak Academy in school and the lessons are of excellent quality. We therefore are recommending that you follow the lessons below. They must be completed in order.
1.Clink the link to the lesson
2.Click start lesson.
3.There is a quiz. If you don’t want to complete this, click ‘next activity’.
4. Read the instructions about watching the video. You may have to pause it to complete your activities. Listen carefully because the teacher gives very clear instructions. You can always click ‘resume video’ if you want to listen again.
Lesson 1 – Story – Reading Comprehension: Predict and Inference
Lesson 2 – Story – Reading Comprehension: Fact Retrieval
Lesson 3 – Story – Identifying the features of a text

If you are really struggling with Oak Academy (it gets easier to navigate after a couple of practices!), you can go back to BBC bitesize (if you are in the Key Worker group, please stick with Oak Academy).
Please keep going with the White Rose maths lessons. We are continuing with fractions.
Here are the video links for each lesson: https://resources.whiterosemaths.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Year-3-Week-6.pdf
Lesson 1 – Tenths as decimals

Task 1 – Science
Vertebrates and Invertebrates
Animals can be classified as either vertebrates or invertebrates.
Invertebrates are animals that don’t have a backbone.
Vertebrates are animals that have a backbone inside their body.
Bonus challenge – can you make a poster or PowerPoint presentation to share your knowledge of vertebrates and invertebrates?
Task 2 – Geography
Do you remember a couple of weeks ago you explored the features of maps? This next geography lesson is all about time zones.
Watch the videos and complete the activities on this page:
Too much screen time?
Can you practise telling the time? Could you make yourself a timetable for tomorrow? Think about how long you will spend on each activity.
Task 3 – Art
A Rangoli is a colourful design made on the floor using coloured rice powder. It is often used by Hindus throughout Diwali. Another form of Rangoli pattern is Mendhi which is used to decorate hands and feet during festivals and weddings.
Rangoli patterns usually include symmetry, reflection and tessellation.
Tessellation is a pattern made of one or more shapes:
• the shapes must fit together without any gaps
Have a go at making your own Rangoli patterns. These are great fun to create with chalk on the floor outside – please ask an adult at home first!
Otherwise, you could draw and colour your own on paper.
This website has some free templates that you can use to get you started.
If you have completed all the tasks and want to carry on learning you can use any of the below:
