In English, we are going to look at some reading comprehension skills on BBC Bitesize. The first option is an extract from 'Agents of the Wild' by Jennifer Bell and Alice Lickens and is the story of a young gils recruited to save endangered animals.

The second option is a series of comprehension and writing activities based on the book 'Slime' by David Walliams.

I hope that you all have a good Friday. Next week is 'Sports Week' so there will be lots of sporting activities posted on Monday (and some optional Maths and English for those of you who would like them).

 

Thursday 2nd July

Good morning year 3. A short update today. I hope that you are all becoming experts on telling the time. Today we are going to be telling the time to the nearest minute - looking at times to the hour.

In English, it is the second writing day of your Jungle Log. If you finished your log yesterday, you can use today to edit it carefully (or to have a well earned break).

Mrs Dowdall has another Science lesson for you too. Today‚Äôs lesson is all about muscles and how they help us to move.

Wednesday 1st July

Hello year 3. I can't quite believe that I am writing July! How are you all getting on with telling the time? For the past two days we have been looking at telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes. This is something that you did in year 2. Today and tomorrow we are going to be telling the time to the nearest minute. The lesson for today is below:

If you would like more practise please see the sheet here

In English, we are going to spend today and tomorrow writing own Jungle Logs. Remember to use the plan that you completed on Monday to help you.

If you would like some more practise with this there are some sheets below for you to try. Remember, you don't need to do all of the challenges.

Fluency practise

Problem solving

In English, we are going to focus on extending our sentences by completing pages 12 and 13 of the booklet.

Mrs Dowdall has also prepared a Science lesson for you. You will have to pretend that you are Year 4 for the day - but I am sure that you are up to the challenge: 

The Science lesson is all about the functions of the skeleton - which is what we cover in year 3 too.

If you follow the link below, there is a powerpoint that explains it and there are 3 worksheets to choose form.

Monday 29th June

Hello year 3! Welcome to another Monday of home learning. As it is a Monday, keep a look out on the home page for Miss Webster's Monday morning assembly.

In Maths this week we are going to be looking at telling the time. In year 2 you learnt to tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes but we will go over this again this week using the Oak Academy lessons as a base. The first lesson is below:

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/develop-an-understanding-of-clocks/activities/1

Telling the time is usually a tricky maths unit in year 3 but one of the best ways to learn is to keep practising at intervals throughout the day and home learning is perfect for this.

In school we make our own clock faces so that we can practise showing different times. If you would like to do this at home there is a template below:

 In English, we are going to plan our own jungle log - detailing what happens when you visit your own jungle. The plan for this can be found on page 11 of the booklet. Happy exploring!
