https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-maths-the-4-times-table-with-cyril-the-swan/zmsw382 

 

Today, we are looking at writing numbers in words. For example, 2 = two. 

Watch the video below to see how to spell some of our numbers.

 

Number Words Rap (a song for spelling number words)

Watch Miss Cook’s video below before having a go at the worksheets below. You will need a piece of paper and a pen/pencil with you to complete some of the tasks throughout the video. 

Year 3 - maths - 26.02.21

Mrs Wells' group:  

Today is our last lesson looking at our number bonds to 10. Join in with the song and actions below. Can you work out what the number bonds are? 

I Know My Number Bonds with DJ Count | Number Bonds to 10 | Addition Song for Kids | Jack Hartmann

Go and find 10 objects around the house. This could be toys, pegs, sweets or anything else you can find. I want you to make some number bonds to 10. For example; 

 

 

 

6 + 4 = 10 

 

Once you have practised with your objects, have a go at the 2 worksheets below. Can you help the robots with their number bonds? Can you complete the shooting stars with your number bonds to 10?

English:  

 

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 

Today in English we are going to be doing some dictation. You will need a pencil and a piece of paper. You need to watch the video with Miss Cook below and write the sentences she says. Make sure you pause the video when you need to so you can write the whole sentence. Make sure you remember you capital letters, commas, full stops and any other punctuation you might need. Good luck! 

Year 3 - English Part 1 - 26.02.21

Now watch this video and see if you have got your sentences correct!

Year 3 - English Part 2 - 26.02.21

Now, have a go at this game. When it asks you to choose a topic, please select ‘spelling’. You need to join the exploring team to find the gems and complete the challenges using your knowledge of sounds, prefixes and suffixes to see if you can complete the game! 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/games/embed/crystal-explorers?exitGameUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fbbc.co.uk%2Fbitesize%2Farticles%2Fzbm8scw 

Mrs Wells’ Group:  

Today, we would like you to write some sentences using verbs ending in –ing or –ed. This week, you have come up with loads of different verbs and added these suffixes to change the tense of them. Today, you are going to be using your colour semantics to help you.  

 

Remember, our sentences have to have: 

 

Have a look at Miss Cook’s example below. She has chosen some of her colour semantics to help her form the sentences.  

 

The giraffe is dancing to music in the zoo on his birthday. 

The giraffe danced to music in the zoom on his birthday. 

 

Using the colour semantics below, you need to create your own sentences and then write them as –ing verbs and –ed verbs like Miss Cook has. Be careful as some of the verbs change when we put them in the past tense. 

Handwriting: 

Watch Miss Johnson’s handwriting video, we have looked at this video before but I think it is a particularly hard one. Once you have practised the joins, think of some words with the sounds in and write them out too. 

 

Year 3 - Handwriting joins - diagonal joins

Art:  

This week, we have been learning all about deforestation and the impact it has on the world, people and animals. In art today, we would like you to design a ‘save the rainforest’ poster encouraging people to stop deforestation. You can use any materials or art resources you have at home. For example, you might use colouring pencils, paint, watercolours, pastels, collaging materials, recycled materials.  

 

Please see some ideas below. 

 

Don’t forget to send us a picture of your poster to advice@mapledeneschool.com so Miss Johnson and I can see them!

ICT: 

Today, we are continuing with our learning on coding. Can you remember what it is?

 

If I wanted to walk from Miss Cook’s classroom to the playground, what instructions would you have to give me to programme me to walk that way?   

 

If I wanted to walk from Miss Johnson’s classroom to Miss Cook’s classroom what instructions would you give me?

Join us for our first rise and shine session of the half term. Make sure you are up and ready as we are looking for some volunteers to help us pick our rise and shine videos. 

Maths:  

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 
 
Today, we are going to be looking at representing numbers in different ways. Can you remember how we partition a number?  

 

For example, 

100 + 30 + 4 = 134 

 

You might choose to represent this number with a bar model, part-part whole model, on a number line, with dienes or any other way you can think of. 

 

Have a go at your Daily 10 today. Please select level 3, partitioning, up to 999. Can you correctly work out the numbers being partitioned here?

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group: 

 

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to be looking at deforestation and writing a persuasive letter to persuade people to protect our rainforests. Today, we are focussing on feelings and representing these in different ways.  

 

Before we start our lesson, we must answer this questions: What is deforestation? Watch the video below to find out.

 

 

What is deforestation?

Now, look at the picture below. What is happening here? How does it make you feel?

 

 

 

Have a look at the pictures below. What is happening in the pictures? Why is it happening? How does it make you feel? 

 

 

I want you to imagine you are a rainforest animal. There are some ideas of animals you could choose below:

 

 

 

Draw your animal in the middle of your page. Around the outside of your page answer the following questions: 

  1. When you look out and see the deforestation, what do you notice and how do you feel? 

  2. How would it feel to lose your home? 

  3. Why is the rainforest important? 

 

Look at Mr Murphy’s example below to help you. 

 

 

At the end of the lesson, watch the video below to hear our new book for the week. Can you spot any links to deforestation in the story?

Mrs Wells’ Group:  

 

This week, we are going to be working on verbs.  Watch the video below to learn about what a verb is: 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/zpxhdxs 

 

A verb is a ‘doing’ word and describes how we do something.  

 

For example, 

 

Miss Cook jumps in the puddle. 

 

Miss Johnson runs to the playground. 

 

Mrs Wells walks to school. 

 

Have a go at the worksheet below. Can you correctly match the verb to the picture. You can either draw a line or cut them out and match them together. 

 

Handwriting: 

Watch Miss Johnson’s video which introduces another join. See if you can practise your joins and you can be as neat as Miss Johnson.

PSHE: 

This afternoon, we are looking at our feelings and emotions. Can you name any different emotions that you might feel?  

 

Did you mention any of these emotions? 

 

 

Watch this video to about different feelings. You can join in and move along with it!

Today, we would like you to think about all the happy moments in your life. Can you think of 6 events that have happened that make you feel happy, excited or put a smile on your face? Write them down on a piece of paper.  

 

These events could include; the birth of a family member (e.g. brother, sister, cousin etc.), a family celebration (e.g. wedding, christening, birthday party etc.)  

Now put these into order based on when they happened. You want the first event that happened to go first, and the last event last with the others in order in the middle.  

 

Today, you are going to be putting these events onto a timeline of your life. You are going to be using either photos you can find of these events from around the house or drawings of these events to create your timeline. Please see Mr Murphy’s example below. You can see that the image of his first bike appears earlier in the timeline than when he came to Mapledene school, because my timeline is in “chronological” order. Bonus points if you can include dates. 

 

Have a go at creating your own version using the timeline template below.
