Week beginning Monday 6th April
For all of the work below you do not need to print out any of the worksheets, thank you Year 3.
This week the focus of maths is length. We would like you to spend no more than 30 minutes on each activity. Please work in the book provided by school. There is a worksheet attached underneath the Maths worksheets heading. To support your child's maths, we have also attached ongoing activities that you can use as and when you see fit.
Adding and subtracting lengths
Find 10 items bigger than a metre and 10 times smaller than a metre. Record these items in a table.
Extra challenge: Write an estimation for each item.
Create a revision poster all about length. Think about the work that you have done this week. Have fun and be creative.
We would like you to complete the following writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar activities.
Practise your 10 new spellings. Use the strategies we have been working on at school. Get your Parents/Carers to test you on your spellings at the end of the week.
Please complete the adjective sheet in your workbook.
Retell a story from a different perspective
Perspective= their point of view, them telling the story, their version of events etc.
Choose a story you know really well! For example: The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, The Stone Age Boy, Fantastic Mr Fox etc.
Retell the traditional tale or story from another character’s point of view. For example: Tell The Three Little Pigs from the wolf’s perspective, Little Red Riding Hood from Grandma’s perspective etc.
Aim to write a page in your workbook. Try to use your best handwriting and use the correct punctuation. Make sure you use capital letters for names (proper nouns).
Watch this for inspiration:
Help your parents/carers make a meal this week. I know that they’ll appreciate this. Take note of all of the different steps. Complete a set of instructions for what you had to do. Remember to include a title ‘How to make…’, an ingredients list and instructions in chronological order (time order). If you’re unsure of what to do look at the PowerPoint on the attachments.
We learnt about acrostic poems in class recently. Look at the attachment of example acrostic poems to remind yourself. Choose a word that interests you, it could be your favourite colour, food, TV character, hobby etc. Create your own acrostic poem about your chosen word.
Top Tip Remember to keep your lines short enough so that each new line is a new letter. You could decorate your poem afterwards.
We would like you to read 5 times a week for at least ten minutes each time that you read. Also we would like you to complete the activities below. You can find more reading resources and books to read on the following link:
Read the text and answer the comprehension questions.
Choose 5 words from your reading book. Write a definition [what a word means] for each word.
Write 3 facts and 3 opinions from your reading book or a different book. You could choose a book from the following website: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/
Look at the picture and answer the following questions:
What do you see? What do you notice? What can you infer? What do you predict?
Using the picture from yesterday write a setting description.
Top Tip: Use yesterday's work to help you and comment on the five senses.
We would like you to complete one activity a day from the list below. You can choose which activity you do for each day. The subjects could include: Science, History/Geography, ICT, PE, Spanish, PSHE, Music, RE and Art. Enjoy learning about the world around us.
Activity 1: Computing- What is a computer?
Watch the clip and read the information sheet about what a computer is.
Hunt around your house, how many computers can you find?
Make a list or draw pictures of them.
*You could also watch this video*
Activity 2: Music
Find out what music your family members enjoy. Ask the people in your house but if you speak to other members of your family on the phone or FaceTime ask them too. Do they like the same music? What is their favourite song? Could you listen to different pieces of music together? Do they like/dislike any particular types of music and why? Can you identify any of the instruments you can hear and describe how the music makes you feel?
No need to write anything down for this task but you could create a poster about what you’ve found out or make a family playlist with all of your favourites on. Remember to explore different genres, in class we like to listen to calming music like this:
Or perhaps you could explore the classics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VB1RvyfISM
Activity 3: PE
Have you been joining in with Joe Wicks at 9am every morning? If not make sure you do this week and join in with at least 3 workouts.
Can you and your family create a circuit/Hit workout in your own home? You can use some of the Magnificent 7 activities (week 1) if you want to or the things that Joe Wicks has been doing or you might be able to think of something even better.
Write instructions for each activity and then you and your family can use these for your PE sessions the following week. You can write the instructions in your workbook like the ones you have written in English this week or you could make a poster for each activity with simple instructions or diagrams on them.
Activity 4: Science
Answer the questions about skeletons.
Challenge:Draw and label the diagram.
Watch the video we watched in class to help:
Activity 5: PSHE
Each day this week find something good in each day and think of something you are looking forward to when life returns to normal. Write them down in your workbook, each day.
Set it out like this:
I am grateful for…
I am looking forward to…
Here’s some examples:
I am grateful for the doctors and nurses who are caring for the people who get poorly, I am grateful that I get to spend more time with my mum and dad, I am grateful for the sunshine so I can play outside.
I am looking forward to going back to school and seeing my teachers and friends, I am looking forward to being able to go the park, I am looking forward to etiming my grandad tonight.
