Spring Term Home Learning
5th January 2021
In English, we are starting a new book called The Great Cave, by Terry Deary. I would like you to read pages 7-9 and answer the following questions.
Mrs Billington's Group
Everyday, I will be setting work for the children, who were in Mrs Billington's Maths and English group. The first two activities can be found below.
Hi Class 3, Happy New Year!
Before Christmas we were looking at healthy eating and the types of foods which make up a balanced diet. For your first piece of Science at home I would like you to create a model plate of a balanced meal. We did plan our plates in school before the holidays but if you can't remember what your plate looked like then create a new balanced meal. Your plate should contain carbohydrate, protein and plenty of vegetables or salad. I have included some pictures to help you with your model building.
Once you have completed your model please take a photograph of your creation and email it to the Class 3 email address so that I can see all of your fabulous work.
A Challenge: Name the food and the food group of each item on your plate and write a short description of how they are used by the body.
Today, we have started learning about division. When we are dividing numbers the most important thing is to remember that we have equal groups.
In English, we have read the first chapter from 'The Great Cave' and have discussed two of the characters called Willow and Flint. I would like you to read this chapter and then write a short paragraph about each of the characters.
This is an image of Willow and Flint from ' The Great Cave'. I would like you to reproduce this image using a medium of your choice. I look forward to seeing your designs.
I will be uploading reading activities each week to our class page so you can practise your comprehension skills. The text we are reading is called 'The Great Monster' by Terry Deary. Remember to read the text carefully before answering any questions.
Mrs Billington's Group
I would like you to write some sentences about what you did on Christmas day. You may want to include:
Identify how many tens and ones are in each number.
13 = 1 ten and 3 ones
Circle the largest number.
15 or 19
29 or 21
23 or 32
15 or 51
RE with Mrs. C!
Good morning year 3, Happy Wednesday! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas resting and spending time with your families.
It's Wednesday, which means it's RE, hooray! We are beginning a new unit of work today - don't worry I haven't forgotten about our 'Litter pick.' We'll fit it in as soon as we can.
Our new RE topic is called 'People of God.' I wonder what this might be about?
Do you know about any 'People of God?' If you have a Bible at home look inside to see who you can find. So that you don't forget their names you could write a list/make puppets/draw pictures/use symbols/make a word search with the names hidden inside. You choose the one which will help you remember the people best.
If you don't have a Bible at home, then try to remember the stories and names you have heard at school. Or you could ask someone - grandparents are usually good at this sort of thing!
You could email your work to Mr. Arnott, then he could share it with me so that I can enjoy your work too!
PE with Mrs. C!
Wednesday is one of our usual PE days, it's a lot harder to do at home! In school I'll be working with the other children to keep them fit, active and healthy. Move, Move, Move!
You could invent some exercises to show/tell me. I would like you to use a timer this week to see if you can do a certain movement or exercise for 1 minute, 2 minutes or even 3 minutes without stopping!
Challenge your grown-ups to a competition!
Here are some ideas:
Go up and down the stairs - how many times can you do it in 2 minutes?
Dance to a whole song - keep going until the song finishes!
Burpees - how many can you do in 1 minute?
Skipping - can you skip without stopping for 1 minute/2 minutes?
Go for a walk - how many miles?
keepy-ups with a ball - how many can you do altogether?
Please invent more and tell me so that I can do it too. I'll try the 6 ideas and let you know how I get on, maybe we could have a year 3 competition? Healthy Happy Hearts
Every week, I will set some Maths revision for you to complete. This will be something that we have learnt in school and the task should take you less than ten minutes to complete.
In English, we have read the second chapter from 'The Great Cave' called Bull. The main events from the chapter are listed below-in chronological order.
I would like you to write a paragraph describing the main events using adjectives and sequencing words. Remember to use the word bank below to help you.
Following on from yesterday's division lesson we are going to use known facts to help us divide using mental calculations.
I would like you to learn the following spellings this week:-
After you have learnt them try using the spellings in a sentence.
Mrs Billington's group
Mrs Billington's group have just started to read 'Stone Age Boy'. I would like to you write some sentences about the girl and boy, like the examples below.
The boy has brown hair.
The girl is holding a torch.
Mrs Billington's group have been adding numbers using objects. Answer the questions below:
4 + 5=
5 + 2 =
2 + 6 =
14 + 5 =
11 + 6 =
23+ 5 =
