Can you guess the book or author? Do you know any characters from the book? Have you read the book? 

 

Check back here at 2pm to hear part of the story. Who will be reading it today?

 

How to Train your Dragon

Maths:  

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 

Today we are continuing to look at division. 
 
Watch this video first: 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-maths-division-with-mighty-red/zrh9scw 

 

In yesterday’s lesson, we looked at dividing when we know one of the times tables in the questions. Have a look at the questions below. Which ones could you confidently answer and why? 

15 ÷ 5 =  
21 ÷ 7 =  
16 ÷ 8 =  
32 ÷ 2 =  
15 ÷ 3 =  
 
How would you answer the questions that you weren’t confident with? Watch Miss Johnson’s video to recap the strategies and then have a go at the tasks. 

Year 3 - Maths - 05.03.21

Mrs Wells' group:  

In our maths learning today, we are thinking about how you can represent numbers in words.  

 

Can you match the words below to the correct number? 

 

1           

eight         

10 

one 

ten 

three 

 

 

Watch this video first: 

Sight Word Rap Numbers| Sight Words | High Frequency Words | Jump Out Words | Jack Hartmann

Once you have watched the video, that you may want to watch more than once. Have a go at completing the worksheet to match the numbers 1-20 to their words. 

Reading: 

 
Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 

 

Head to the Read Write Inc YouTube Channel (click the link below) to watch today's sound videos. Watch the Set 3 Speed Sounds session with Rosie and then scroll down to watch the Reading Longer Words with Rosie video for today's sound. Remember to join in by writing the words on a piece of paper.  
 
Today we are carrying on with our poem but we are looking at inference questions. Re-read the poem and get your thinking hats ready! 

Mrs Wells and Miss Sanders’ group:  

 

Head to the Read Write Inc YouTube Channel (click the link below) to watch today's sound videos. Watch the Set 3 Speed Sounds session with Rosie and then watch the Set 3 Spelling video with Rosie video for today's sound. Remember to join in by writing the words on a piece of paper.  

 

Today our text is called ‘Free Snot Broth’ and it sounds disgusting! What is a broth? Well done if you knew it was a type of soup. Do you like soup? Would you like to try snot soup? Read the text and answer the questions. 

English:  

 

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 

 

Today in English, we are continuing on with our letters. Remember it is really important that we write the best letter possible so that the most people are persuaded to think more carefully about the rainforest and how they can help stop deforestation. 
 
Firstly, I would like you to re-read the part of the letter you wrote yesterday. Remember reading as we go along (proof reading) and editing our work is really important. While you are reading check for the following things: 

  • Have you got capital letters in the correct places? 

  • Have you got full stops at the end of each sentence or question marks if you have used a question? 

  • Have you got commas after your fronted adverbials? 

  • Have you got commas between your adjectives in your expanded noun phrases? 

 

Once you have proof read and checked what you have written so far, watch Miss Johnson’s video about writing your paragraph for reason 3 and your conclusion. 
 
Don’t forget once you have finished your letter, it would be a good idea to proof read your work again using the above check list that you have written today. 

Year 3 - English - 05.03.21

Mrs Wells’ Group:  

 

Today, we are going to have a look at some handwriting and some phonics activities. Have a go at the phonics mat below and the handwriting sheets first: 

 

Once you have completed those activities, have a go at writing some sentences about the picture in the writing task. Remember to think carefully about what you need to include in each sentence. 

World Book Week – Door 5 

Where do you think we are going today? Did you guess from the door? 
 
Have you ever read the book? If you have, what did you prefer the book or the film? 

 

Watch the video below:

 

How To Train Your Dragon - Book Trailer 2014

Now have a go at designing your own dragon, you can do this as a picture but it would also be brilliant if you could label it and tell us for example, what it eats.

DT: 

Today we are finishing off our moving animal rainforest picture. Remember, this is what we want it to look like when we are finished.  
 
You will need: 

  • Your white piece of card 

  • Your green strip 

  • Your split pins 

  • Coloured crayons or felt tips 

Watch Miss Johnson’s video that talks you through the steps for today’s tasks. I would recommend that you watch all of the video first and then re-watch it and pause it at the parts I say. 

Year 3 - DT part 2 - 05.03.21

ICT: 

Today, we are continuing with our learning on coding. Can you remember what it is? 
 
Have a look at the pictures below for making a sandwich, could you give a piece of code (an instruction) for each picture? You don’t need to write this down.  

 

 

 

Today, you have a choice of 2 activities. The first is a task from the Hour of Code. The second is a challenge set by Mr Murphy. Choose 1 of these tasks to complete and follow the instructions below. 

 

Option 1: Hour of Code

 

https://studio.code.org/s/oceans/stage/1/puzzle/1

Day 3 - World Book Week

Maths:  

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 

 

Today, we are looking at recalling the 4 times tables and the thinking about how you may apply these to the 8s. If you know your 4s really confidently, you will already know some of your 8s.  

 

Have a watch of the 8s Super Movers video below to get you ready for your learning: 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-maths-the-8-times-table-with-filbert-fox/z4mrhbk 

 

How many of your 8s did you know already? Did you spot any numbers that are multiples (in the) of 4s and are in the 8s? 
 
Now watch the video about the 4s before completing your work for today. 

 

Mrs Wells' group:  
 
Today we are going to be looking at numbers and how we can represent them in different ways. Represent just means to show the numbers. We already have looked at home to show 2-digit numbers using tens and units.  
 
For examples, we could show 35 as...  

 

Now let’s watch the video to see how else we can represent numbers. 
 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/representing-2-digit-numbers-part-1-6dhkgd?step=2&activity=video 

 

Once you have watched the video, have a look at your task for today.

Remember to join in by writing the words on a piece of paper.  

 

Today, we have a new part of Rainforest Calling to look at and then are going to answer the skim and scan and inference questions about the new piece of text. What do you think is going to happen today? How do you predict Daisy is feeling at the moment and why? 

Mrs Wells and Miss Sanders’ group:  

 

Head to the Read Write Inc YouTube Channel (click the link below) to watch today's sound videos. Watch the Set 3 Speed Sounds session with Rosie and then watch the Set 3 Spelling video with Rosie video for today's sound. Remember to join in by writing the words on a piece of paper.  
 
In today’s lesson, I would like you to think carefully about the poem we have been looking at this week. Can you remember what the poem is about? Firstly, I would like you to re-read the poem. Once you have read it, you are then going to have a go at the matching the words from the poem to what they mean. 

English:  

 

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 

 

In English today, we are looking at paragraphs. What is a paragraph? Have a watch of the video below to help you start to understand?

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvwwxnb/articles/z9n73k7  

 

You see paragraphs all around you, when reading stories, information texts and much more. Our WAGOLL was also in paragraphs. 
 
Have a look at the sheet below. For the first task, say what the paragraph is about. Then, separate the chunk of text into paragraphs. The final task will involve you planning the paragraphs for your letter that you will be writing tomorrow. 

Mrs Wells’ Group:  

 

When we are writing a perfect sentence what do we need to include? 
 
Well done if you said: 

  • Capital letters 

  • Full stops 

  • Finger spaces 

  • Fred Fingers to spell the words 

  • Check it makes sense 

  •  

Which sentence below is perfect and why? 

 

The boy and his father got on the brown boat to the island. 

The boyand his father goot on th brown bot to the island 

 

Today Miss Johnson needs some help making sure her sentences are perfect. Watch the video below and then help Miss Johnson be completing the worksheet.

Year 3 - Mrs Wells' Reading - 02.03.21

English:  

 

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 

 

Today we are looking at clauses in sentences. We are looking at major (main) clauses and subordinate clauses. You use these in your writing all the time, but may not have heard the terms before. Watch the first short video that can be found on the webpage below: 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zgds6g8 

 

Once you have watched that video, watch the following video:

Now let’s apply our learning of main and subordinate clauses to sentences about deforestation by having a go at Miss Johnson’s activities on the sheets.
 

Mrs Wells’ Group:

 

Can you remember what the story was called that we looked at yesterday? Can you remember any of the key things that happened in the story? Re-watch Miss Johnson reading the story. 
 
Today, we are going to think carefully about writing sentences about different parts of the story. We are going to use our colour semantics to help us build different sentences. 

 

 

 

Think about: 

  • Who is in the story? 

  • What different things to do they do? 

  • Where do they do them? 

 

Now watch Miss Johnson’s video and help her come up with some sentences. Then have a go at completing the sheet to come up with your own.

Join our Zoom at 1:15 to find out about today’s Science learning. If not, read the information below and watch the videos. 
 
Can you remember the Science words we looked at last week about skeletons? 

 

Well done if you said invertebrates and vertebrates. What is the different between them and can you think of any examples of vertebrates and invertebrates? What are humans? 

 

Today, we are going to continue to explore skeletons and think carefully about some other Science words that important to use when sorting skeletons.  
 
The words are: 
 
- Endoskeleton 

- Excoskeleton 

- Hydrostatic Skeleton 

 

Before you watch my video, can you make any predictions about what the words might mean?

Library: 
 
I feel like this library session is extra special because it is World Book Week too. Where do you love to read a book? I love to read books in all sorts of places, sometimes in bed, sometimes on the sofa and when we are allowed to travel, I love to listen to stories through audio books on trains and buses.  
 
I also LOVE to build a den and settle down with a copy of my favourite book.

 

    

 

During this library session, and if it is ok with your adults, we would like you to build a den and then send us a photo of you reading one of your favourite books in your den! 
 

Day 36 – Monday 1st March

World Book Week – Door 1 

This week, we are celebrating World Book Week. Don’t forget that on Thursday, we would love you dress up as your favourite book character. What do you think we will be dressing up as? 

 

Each morning, we will post a picture of a door in school on the school website, with some clues that will take you to a different world. Each day, we would like you to use your detective skills to guess which world and book with me might be looking at. 
 
At the end of each day, a different teacher from Years 3 and 4, will upload part of the story to listen to which can be found on the Year 3 class page. 
 
Check out today’s door below: 

 


 
Can you guess the book or author? 

 

Check back at 2pm to see Mr Mac reading part of this book.

With your magic pencil finger, draw the multiplication sign in the air. Can you think of any other words we use for multiplication or any other representations we may use? 

 

Well done if you said: 

  • Times 

  • Groups of 

  • Repeated addition 

  • Arrays 

  • Bar model

Today, we are going to be focussing on our 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s and thinking carefully about how we could represent them in different ways and real-life examples when we use them. 
 
Watch the video of Miss Johnson and then have a go at the work sheets.

Last week in PE, you were focusing on throwing and catching skills. It was brilliant to see some pictures and videos of children taking part in their PE lesson. This week, we are going to be going to looking at throwing and catching as when you come back to school, we are going to be looking at tennis. 
 
Before we start, lets warm up so we are ready. Give this a go and get those feet moving:

Now have a watch of this video about catching a ball: 
 

How to Catch a Ball

Can you remember any of the top tips in the video? Now lets see if we can use these tips to help us improve on catching a ball.  
 
Watch the video below, which has 5 different throwing and catching activities to have a go at. In the video, the teacher uses a pair of rolled up socks for a ball, but you can do this with a tennis ball if you have one.

 

Choose at least 3 activities to have  a go at from the video, but can you choose more if you want. Please be mindful if you are doing these activities inside and always ask an adults permission.

Home PE - Throwing + Catching Skills

Welcome to my first home P.E. video. This week we're working on throwing and catching skills. Suitable for ages 5+ Challenge 1 - Catching - 0:00Challenge 2 -...

PSHE: 

 

With only 5 days of home learning left, how are you feeling?




Are you just feeling one emotion or are you feeling a mixture of emotions?

I know the adults in school are feeling a mixture of emotions for lots of different reasons, which is normal and understandable.

Have a think about the questions below:

How do you feel about seeing your teacher?

How do you feel about seeing your friends?
How do you feel about not seeing your parents while you are at school?
How do you feel about learning about Ancient Greece?
How do you feel about eating lunch at school?



It is ok to feel different emotions for different questions. Also at the moment, you may feel happy and excited but as you get a little bit closer to returning to school your feelings may start to change. 


Have a look at the sheet below, make sure you pick the correct one and have a go at filling it in.
