YEAR 3

Year 3 core learning activities to do at home

Here are the main areas that Year 3 would like you to work on at home over the next two weeks.

Week 5

English-

  • Spellings from Year 3 Term 3A week 5 from Twinkl pack.

  • You all enjoyed learning about Boudicca. Now  check out this website  http://club.creativewritingclub.co.uk/themes/boudicca/ and use it to help you write your own adventure, or, write your adventure out on paper, using clear joined up writing.

  • Research Haiku poems. Then on the theme of Boudicca, think of an image and write your own Boudicca Haiku poem.

  • Look at the daily work set on BBC Bitesize English Year 3 and complete at the level you feel most comfortable.

Maths-

  • Continue to learn your times tables. Remember we are expecting marvellous things here, as you have had lots of time to learn them! You should, by now, be masters of the 2,3,4,5,10 and 11 times tables. Let’s get cracking on the 6, if you haven’t started already.

  • Look at the daily work set on BBC Bitesize Maths Year 3 and complete at the level you feel most comfortable.

Topic

This term we hope to be taking a close look at the place we live. Until we can actually get out and about in Harrow, we can start by doing some research. Many famous people have lived or still live in Harrow. Find out all you can about one of these people.

Science

Check out this video on light and shadows https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0119jxk

Then try this experiment which uses light:

Place a dessert spoon on a piece of paper first thing in the morning. Place the paper in bright sunlight. (This could be in the garden or on a window sill.) Draw around the spoon. Every 3 hours go back and carefully draw the spoon’s shadow, in a new colour, making sure that the spoon is back in its original space each time. The shadows all look different. Have a really good look. Can you think why the shadows all look different?

Week 6

English-

  • Spellings from Year 3 Term 3A week 6 from Twinkl pack.

  • Research shape poems and acrostic poems. Then on the theme of VE Day, think of an image that comes to mind when you think of the end of war, for example a gun on the floor, a soldier taking his hat off, a radio telling the news that war is over.  Write your own acrostic poem and shape poem using these or your own images. You can make them as long as you wish.

  • Write an acrostic poem entitled ‘My Harrow’. Now write your own coronavirus poem. It may be Haiku, acrostic, or a shape poem. It doesn’t have to rhyme and it can be as long as you wish. You can decorate it (even using felt pens!) and please keep them safe. We would like to display them when we get back to school.

  • Look at the daily work set on BBC Bitesize English Year 3 and complete at the level you feel most comfortable.

Maths-

  • Continue to learn your times tables. Remember we are expecting marvellous things here, as you have had lots of time to learn them! You should, by now, be masters of the 2,3,4,5,10, 11 times tables and have a good knowledge of the 6 times table, so let’s get cracking on the 7, if you haven’t started already. Remember, we check into times tables Rock Stars now and then. Well done to those children who have beaten the teacher!

Science

This week, continue to understand light and shadow. Begin by watching this clip about how shadows are formed. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0119853

Next you are going to make your own shadow puppets. You will use your shadow puppets to retell your Boudicca story or to retell one of your poems. Perform your puppet show to your family (with a little adult help where needed) and they will give you a mark out of 10 for:

  • Quality of puppet

  • Quality of the story/poem

  • Quality of the performance.
