Year 3 - Mrs Wells' English - 05.02.21

Children’s Mental Health Week:  

Today is…  

 

 

What does it mean to be ‘friendly’? In school we are friendly to each other in the classroom, playground and other areas of school. Can you think of something friendly you have done in school? This could be helping a friend, member of staff, letting someone play your game or anything else.  

 

Today, we would like you to think about the funniest time you have had with a friend. What happened? Tell someone you are with all about this moment. How did it make you feel? 

 

Speaking or seeing our friends can make us smile and cheer us up! I know when I speak to my friends; we talk to each other, are there for each other and make each other laugh. At the moment, we cannot meet up with our friends but you don’t always need to be with someone to have fun. Try making contact with one of your friends today to just have a chat, make them smile or play a game. It might be a message, email, phone call or video call. 

Art:   

 

As part of children’s mental health week, we would like you to create a piece of art work that represents you. As you know, the theme for this week is ‘express yourself’. We would like you to create a piece of artwork that expresses yourself. For example: 

  • A piece of artwork that represents how you feel at the time 

  • Something you like or enjoy 

  • Something that makes you smile 

  • A self-portrait 

 

You can use any art materials you have to create this piece of artwork. You could use a pencil and paper, paints, colouring pencils, collage materials, recycled materials, clay, play-doh etc. 

 

Miss Johnson and I cannot wait to see what you create and would love to share these with the rest of Year 3 so don’t forget to send them to advice@mapledeneschool.com

ICT:  

In computing this week, we are continuing to look at coding. Re-watch this video which starts to explain what coding is.  

BBC Learning - What Is Coding

Once you have watched the video, head to the link below and follow the instructions:

2:45pm ZOOM – WONDERFUL WORK!  

This afternoon, we are having a zoom meeting to share our amazing work with each other from this week. If you have something you are really proud of that you have done this week, have it with you ready to share with your friends. If you don’t have it with you, you can tell us about it!  

 

You do not have to bring work to share today that is fine. You can still join the meeting to see what your friends have been up to this week and say ‘hello!’.  

Miss Johnson and I cannot wait to see you all and the amazing work you have been doing at home.

 

Don’t forget you can show us all you work by sending it via email to advice@mapledeneschool.com

Maths:  

 

Miss Johnson and Miss Cook’s group: 
Can you remember what we were learning about in yesterday’s lesson? Well done if you remembered that we were learning how to subtract numbers with exchanges. Can you think of any other words that mean the same as subtract?  

  

In today’s lesson, we are going to continue to practise our taking away skills. During the lesson, you may want to use the formal written method or you may want to use jottings. It is important that you do whatever you feel confident with.   
  
Re-watch Miss Cook’s video below and help her remember how to subtract numbers with exchanges.  
  
Once you have watched the video, have a go at the worksheets below. Some questions are word problems and some are just number sentences.

English:  

 

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 

Today, we are going to be looking at facts and opinions. What is the difference between a fact and an opinion?  

 

Facts are things that are true and can be backed with evidence.  

 

Opinions are things that we feel and think. 

 

In our non-chronological reports, we are going to need to use facts because our report is factual about the rainforest. 

 

Have a watch of this video about facts and opinions. Have a go at the games and tasks on this website too after watching the video. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zs44jxs/articles/z3wgqhv 

 

Using your knowledge of facts and opinions have a go at identifying whether my sentences are facts or opinions. Can you spot what tells you they are facts or opinions? 

Mrs Wells’ Group:  

 

In English today, we are going to be looking at making our sentences more interesting by using the word ‘and’.  

 

Watch the video below to recap the learning you have done before continuing with our lesson today. 

 

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

 

Have a go at expanding Miss Cook’s sentences below using the conjunction ‘and’: 

 

I go to the park. 

 

I play with my toys. 

 

I jump in the puddle. 

 

Once you have had a go at expanding Miss Cook’s sentences, watch the video below.

This video will be uploaded on Wednesday morning.

Now, have a go at the worksheet below. Can you use the conjunction ‘and’ correctly? 

11:45am – Zoom (Wellbeing Wednesday) 

 

 

 

Last week for Wellbeing Wednesday, we spoke about how we do P.E to keep our bodies healthy and what we can do to keep our minds healthy. One of the things we said was that laughing cheers us up and has a positive impact.  

 

We have enjoyed seeing all your videos, photos and messages about how you got on with last week’s challenge. It looks like you all had a lot of fun! 

 

Join Miss Cook, Miss Johnson and Mrs Wells for Wellbeing Wednesday today at 11:45am. This week Mrs Wells has set our fun challenge so join our meeting to see if you can beat Miss Cook, Miss Johnson and Mrs Wells or to just laugh with your friends. 

Children’s Mental Health Week Challenge: 

Today is… 

 

What is a ‘wish’? Can you think of any other words for ‘wishes’? 

Did you say any of these? 

 

  • Dreams 

  • Hopes 

  • Goals 

  • Ambitions  

 

Today, we would like you to make a list of 3 things you CAN do and 1 thing you WISH you could do. Think about your wish and write it on a piece of paper in a big star. Around your wish, think about the things you need to do to achieve this.  

See Miss Cook’s example below: 

 

Geography:  

This week, we will be bringing together some of the learning we have done so far on the rainforest. Today we are recapping the layers of the rainforest and thinking about the different animals that live there.  

 

Can you remember the 4 layers of the rainforest?  

What animals live in the different layers?

 

Watch the video below (this is the same as last week) to recap the different layers of the rainforest and discover some of the animals you may find there. 

Year 3- Geography- 27.01.21

This week, we would like you to write your own report on the layers of the rainforest and the animals that live there. Have a look at Miss Cook’s WAGOLL below. Once you have read the WAGOLL, have a go at writing your own. 

 

Remember to include all the features we have been looking at in English too such as pictures, sub-headings, paragraphs, fronted adverbials, conjunctions and expanded noun phrases. Once it is complete, send it to advice@mapledeneschool.com because we would like some to go onto our rainforest displays in school. 

 

Below, there is a sheet for you to write your report. You can choose to use this template or write it on your own piece of paper. 

Spanish: 

This week, we are going to be learning some new vocabulary based on animals. Do you know any animals in Spanish already?  

 

Watch the video with Miss Cook to learn some animals in Spanish. Don’t forget to join in and repeat the words after Miss Cook!

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 

Today we are continuing to work on non-chronological reports. One of the features we looked at yesterday was sub-headings. 

 

Can you remember any of the sub-headings from our text yesterday? 

 

Well done if you said... 

 

  • What is a rainforest? 

  • Where can I find a rainforest? 

  • What is the weather like in the rainforest? 

  • Animals in the rainforest 

  • Why are rainforests so important? 

  • Interesting facts 

 

Re-read through the WAGOLL from yesterday to remind yourself. Today we are going to be sorting information to go into each sub-heading.  

 

Watch this video about sorting our work into paragraphs with headings and sub-headings.

Children’s Mental Health Week: 

Today is… 

 

What does the word ‘helpful’ mean? 

 

It means you do things for other people or animals. You help them to the best of your ability and you will always try to help if someone asks or you can see someone needs help. 

 

Think about all the things you do to help other people and animals. Your task is to write down something you have done for the last week to be helpful and most importantly how it made you feel. You might choose to draw pictures to go with each one or write it – it is up to you! 

 

See my example below: 

 

 

Tuesday 

I helped my Dad clear away the snow. 

Excited because I got to play in the snow and be helpful. 

Wednesday 

I helped Mrs Wells with a task at school. 

Proud because I was able to support my friend. 

Thursday 

I helped my mum cook the dinner. 

Happy because we did something together. 

Friday 

I tidied my classroom. 

Happy because my workspace was tidy. 

Saturday 

I dropped some shopping at my nan’s house. 

Happy because I knew I had cheered my nan up. 

Sunday 

I vacuumed around the house to help my mum with the cleaning. 

Useful because I had helped with the chores. 

Monday 

I helped a child with their reading. 

Proud because I had achieved something positive.

PSHE: 

This week, we are celebrating Children’s Mental Health Week. What did you learn from the assembly this morning?

 

Today is... 

 

The theme for this year's Children's Mental Health Week is express yourself.

 

What does ‘express yourself’ mean? 

 

‘Express yourself’ is about finding creative ways to share feelings, thoughts or ideas through things like art, writing, music, dance and doing things that make you feel good. It isn’t about being the best at something, it is about finding a way to show how you are feeling that can help you feel good about yourself. 

 

Watch the video below to see how you can express your emotions in Makaton. Then, complete the worksheet below all about expressing yourself.
