Friday 5th June 

Hello year 3. I hope that you have a good Friday. There are two choices for English today. If you are feeling creative, you can draw, paint or make a model of the stone ship and trolls. Use the photo on page 6 of the booklet to help you. If you would like an alternative to this, there is a reading comprehension on 'Apollo 13' on Twinkl which can be found by searching for 'Apollo 13 reading comprehension' and selecting the option for LKS2. 

In Maths, we are going to complete the final lesson on Parallel and perpendicular lines: 

If you would like an extension, there are three reasoning and problem solving challenges below:

I hope that you all have a lovely weekend and I will see you back here on Monday.


Thursday 4th June

Good morning year 3! I hope that you have all been able to find enough books to read during lockdown. What has been your favourite book so far? If you have read something that you really enjoyed please let me know and I can post some recommendations on the website for everyone to see.

For English today, we are going to complete pages 14 and 15 of the booklet. This will be the last writing task for this week.  

In Maths, we are going to be looking at parallel and perpendicular lines in 2D shapes. Also, if you haven't tried the challenges from yesterday, take a look at some today.



Wednesday 3rd June

Hello year 3! Thank you to everyone who has sent in work so far this week. I have seen some great vocabulary, fantastic perpendicular lines and some very healthy dinner plates! Keep up the good work. Tomorrow in Maths we are going to look at parallel lines.

If you would like an extra challenge take a look at the sheets attached below. There are three levels of challenge but remember, you don't have to do them all.


 In English we are going to complete the 'Odd One Out Game' on page 10 and 'The Adjective Game' on pages 11 and 12. If you would like an extension please complete the challenges on page 13.  


Tuesday 2nd June

Good morning year 3! I hope that you enjoyed the sunshine yesterday and that you are now experts on identifying perpendicular lines. Today in Maths we are going to be drawing perpendicular lines. The link to the lesson is below: 

In English, we are going to continue with our unit on story writing. You can work through the booklet at your own pace but if you are keeping up with me, the plan today is to reread the story and complete the 'What did you think about the story?' section and the 'Reading Quiz'. These are on pages 8 and 9 of the booklet.  

Now that we are moving into our second term of home learning, I thought that I would post some Science work for those of you who are missing Science. Our topic this half term in Science is 'Animals including Humans' and we begin by looking at healthy eating.

The following clip talks about Healthy Eating and the main food groups.

There is a short film clip and then a quiz. Once you have completed this you can compile your own healthy food plate, with your favourite things. Remember to send me a copy if you are proud of it.


Monday 1st June 

Hello year 3! I hope that you have all had a restful half term and that you have enjoyed the sunshine. We have spent a lot of time in the garden this week and I am very thankful for the lovely weather that we have had. However, I have missed all of your emails and seeing all of your work. From June 1st I will be back in school full time but I will keep posting work everyday and please keep sending me your work. I promise that I will reply to all of your emails but it may take me a little longer so please bear with me.

For Maths this week we are going to look at identifying and drawing perpendicular and parallel lines. This is another of my favourite topics in year 3 as you can have a lot of fun drawing shapes with perpendicular and parallel lines. We are going to follow the Oak National Academy lessons everyday this week but we are a week behind their scedule so we will be looking at the week beginning 18th May (Week 5 on the schedule). The link to Monday's lesson is below.

In English, we are going to follow a Talk for Writing booklet on story writing. This booklet should take us roughly two weeks to complete with some Art and DT challenges along the way. The link to the booklet is below. It is set up very much in the same way as the report on trolls that we completed before half term. On the front page it asks for a donation but Ladbrooke have donated on your behalf.  

On Monday, the plan is to read the background information to the story and the story 'The Stone Trolls' and the complete the section 'What do the words mean?' If you would like a challenge, try using some of the words in sentences or a short paragraph.
