Year 3 Online Learning
Welcome to the Year 3 Online Learning page.
We will be updating the page with new activities at the beginning of each week. We look forward to seeing what you have been getting up to and would love for you to share your work with us on Seesaw. On this app/webpage, we will be able to view children’s work/images etc. and can comment on what they have produced. This will also be a platform for children to share what they are getting up to outside of the learning. Please remember that what you share on Seesaw will be shared with the whole year, not just the class teachers.
The tasks we have listed are just suggestions, we hope they give you a starting point. Feel free to tailor them to your child’s needs or interests, and to complete as many as you wish. Home learning should be fun!
We are available to answer any questions you may have via our email addresses:
Week Beginning 18th May 2020
We recommend tuning into Joe Wicks PE lessons everyday at 9am to kick start the day! Enjoy!
If you need a 5 minute move during your day, here is another short session:
Daily Reading (20 minutes)
Read a chapter of a book a day with adults asking questions about what you have read or login to ‘ReadTheory’ and spend 20 minutes completing the online comprehension. We can track your daily progress. Please be advised that the first time you log onto this, there will be an online generated assessment, do not be daunted by this as initially it can be quite tricky but will set the appropriate reading level for you. (ReadTheory or Oxford OWL)
We have also included a guided reading task, these do not need to be printed you can just write your answers in your own books. There are three levels of challenge, you choose which one best suits you.
Daily Writing (30 minutes)
This week are going to focus on a non-fiction piece of writing. I would like you to tell us what life would have been like living at a fort on Hadrian’s Wall and make a fact file page to present this.
- Have a go at reading through the information you have been given and watching the videos. Whilst you are doing this you can highlight key information or make notes on what you have seen/read.
- Decide on the key information you want to present and make some subheadings to help organise your page. Think about some of the questions that people might have- Who lived at a roman fort? Where did they live? What did they eat? Did soldiers just fight? What did they do in their spare time? Why was Hadrian’s Wall built? Organise your notes under each of your headings.
- Plan your page carefully, you have a lot of information so you need to think about what you want to include and how clearly it can be presented. Remember our page about Mary Anning and how we used text boxes to organise our paragraphs.
- Look at the conjunction word mats and make sure that you use coordinating and subordinating conjunctions to extend your sentences with more detail.
- Think about any pictures you want to include. Remember they need to be useful and have a label or caption.
- Remember to include some fun, ‘Did you know?’ facts.
Here are some links to get you started:
Group A & B
ly endings – becoming an adverb
Again, this week try to use speech marks (inverted commas) within your sentences and an alternative word to ‘said’. e.g “Play nicely you two!” yelled Mum from the kitchen. e.g “You look so smart,” commented Mum.
To practise using inverted commas, go onto Purple Mash, SPAG (Grammar), Early Birds, Mark wants Chicken.
Word of the Week
Deluge – something coming in great number
After the speech, there was a deluge of questions.
A deluge of mud slowly slid down the side of the mountain.
Synonyms – torrent, barrage, avalanche
Antonyms – trickle, drizzle, drought
Remember to try to use the word of the week (and its synonyms and antonyms) in your sentences - both written and verbal
Daily Maths Task
This week, we are looking at fractions and time. Using MyMaths, aim to complete one task each day but don’t forget to go through the lessons first. When you’ve completed your task, mark your work to see how you got on!
We have also added some maths challenges for those of you who want to give them a go!
Monday - fraction calculations
Tuesday - more fractions
Wednesday - time 1
Thursday - telling the time 2
Friday - time between
Times Tables Rock Stars (10 minutes daily)
Logon daily to TTRockstars and spend 10 minutes practising your times tables or go onto ‘Hit the Button’ and choose a couple of areas that you need more practise on.
Choose a Roman Emperor. Here’s a list to get you started
Once you have chosen your emperor search to find an image of his face and have a go at sketching a portrait.
You might want to add a plaque to go underneath your sketch with details about your Emperor e.g. Full name, date of birth, date of death, the dates they ruled from and to, what they were famous for, what type of leader they were.
Explore some French stories, songs and poems
Which is your favourite? Have a go at joining in with them. Can you learn one off by heart? Could you create a very simple short story in French?
