Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

 

Week Commencing Monday 30th March

 

Hi Year 3,

 

I hope you have had a wonderful week and well done to everyone for surviving the first week of home learning! Below are the learning tasks for this week- I hope you have fun doing them! 

It has been lovely to read some of your fantastic writing for the Mad Scientist Sequel, well done!

I would love to hear and see what you have been up to as I am missing your cheeky faces a lot so I have now set up a blog on Purple Mash. We can share what we have been up to and celebrate everyone's work and achievements! I can't wait to see what you've been doing. 

Have a fab week and I hope to see you all very soon,

Miss Ross heart

 

I am aware of the issues with losing work on Purple Mash, apologies for any inconveniences last week! This week the activities can either be completed on Word documents or using a pencil and paper. For work that has been completed please send over to my email: gross@ashleyhill.org 

 

 

 

 

Mindfulness 

Although to children the idea of having time off schools sounds great, they have never experienced anything like this before and they may be affected by the constant anxiety and tension more than we think. 

If your child is struggling with increased anxiety please find these links for mindfulness activities helpful. In this strange time it is just as important to put mental health and well-being first heart

Activity 1 

Click the link and listen to the poem 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p011n0wj

Whilst listening to the poem, draw the images that come into your head. Take a piece of paper and doodle or write all the things you can imagine whilst listening to the poem (you may need to listen to the poem more than once). 

Why do you think the poet chose to put those things inside the magic box? Write down 3 reasons. There is no right or wrong answer, it is your own opinion! 

Next, can you write down 3 things you would put inside your own magic box? 

Activity 2

Now we need to identify the features of a poem!

First you need to read through the features and match them up with their correct definition. You will know some of these from other work we have done before in English. Use the word document at the top of this page to complete this activity. 

Once you have learnt what the key features are, can you read through the poem again and highlight or underline where you notice any of these key features? I have done a few examples for you. Use the word document at the top of this page to complete this activity. 

Activity 3 

Now it is time to create some ideas of what you would put in the Magic Box.

Begin with brainstorming your ideas. To make it easier I would like you to use your 5 senses to help you. You could also go outside or use objects in your house to inspire you and create some fab ideas. Think of your favourite places, sounds, sights, tastes and smells. Go crazy and spend 5 minutes jotting down these ideas. 

We can't stop there- now you need to jazz up your ideas with adjectives, adverbs, similes and alliteration. I would like you to pick 5 things you have written down to edit and improve. Re-write them onto a new sheet of paper or type them up. 

Here are some examples to help you if you are stuck:

1. The crunch of hot buttered toast 

2. The soft, fluffy fur of a cat 

3. Golden sunlight from the summer sun 

Activity 4 

Today it is time to write your magic box poems! Use the lines you created yesterday as well as your brainstorms to help you! You could also create a plan first to help you organise your ideas. Each verse must begin with 'I will put in the box' and have 3 lines after it- make sure you look back at the original poem for inspiration. 

There are 3 levels which you can choose to complete. 

1 chili- Write 2 verses of the poem 

2 chili- Write 4 verses of the poem 

3 chili- Write 5-6 verses of the poem (like the original) 

Here is an example verse you could use to help you:

I will put in the box...

the roar of a fierce and frightening lion,

the sweet, fruity perfume of a beautiful princess, 

precious golden sunlight from the summer sun.

Activity 5 

Now you need to write up your fantastic poems in neat. Add drawings too!

You could also practice reading your poem out loud with actions and perform it- I would love to see some clips!

Activity 1. Go onto the spellings frame website and practice sounding out the words- remember to break them down if you are finding them tricky! https://spellingframe.co.uk/spelling-rule/26/25-Word-list-years-3-and-4---a-to-bi- Challenge: Can you write down the meaning of each word? 

Activity 2. Put these words into sentences- try and make them as interesting as you can! Challenge: Rather than sentences, could you put these words into a short story?

Activity 3. Pick a writing style that we do in class (e.g rainbow or pyramid writing) and write out each word twice. If you have any spare magazines or newspapers around in your house you could cut out the letters and make a collage of this week's spellings words!  Challenge: Can you invent your own style of writing? I would love to see it!

Activity 4. Click the link for some fun online activities to practice this week's spellings: https://spellingframe.co.uk/spelling-rule/26/25-Word-list-years-3-and-4---a-to-bi-

Activity 5. All your fantastic practise this week means you are more than ready to do your spellings test! You can get an adult to test you or you can complete a test on the spellings frame website: https://spellingframe.co.uk/spelling-rule/26/25-Word-list-years-3-and-4---a-to-bi-

Maths

This week you still haven't escaped fractions unfortunately! We are now onto Week 2. Begin with Step 6, Lesson 1: Ordering fractions on a number line. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

Remember to do your Daily 5 before you do any maths learning to warm up your brains!

Times Tables

As the 8 times tables can be a little tricky to remember, we are going to carry on practising them again this week! 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_BJjR9rdwA 

For this week I have set the 2, 4 and 8 timestables on Times Table Rockstars (can you remember what we said in class about how they link?) https://ttrockstars.com/

A fun activity you could do to practice is make your own Times Table hopscotch grid. If you have any chalk (or you could draw the squares onto sheets of paper and tape them down) draw out a hopscotch grid and write the 8 Times Table in order into each square. Then you can use the hopscotch grid to count up in 8s!

Here is an example: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/9a/39/f4/9a39f4f7e8460a49ba31beb9f3875664.jpg

Non-Core 

For non-core this week I thought it would be nice to do some geography to help us understand the world around us. 

1. Go onto the website: https://random.country/ and use the randomiser to select a country. 

2. Research this country: what is the population? What is the climate like? What physical features does it have? What human (man-made features does it have?

3. Use your research to create a poster on this country- make it really colourful! I would love to see them! 

Challenge: Invent your own country and create a poster on it. What would you name it? Where would it be in the world? What would the weather/climate be like? How many people would live there? 

 

Below are some links and images of some creative activities you could do at home! Remember, cooking or cleaning is still learning- I would love to hear about what you have been up to!
