Home Learning W.C 18/05/20
Hello Year 3! Firstly, I would like to say how much I LOVED the video that you made for me. It was so lovely to see you all looking so well and happy! It meant a lot to me, so thank you!
Please see below for the home learning for this week. Next week (w.c. 25/05/20) is half term and there will be no home learning set during this week. As always, if you have any questions about any of it then please email me.
Maths (Summer Term Week 3 on White Rose)
English - The Wild Robot
This week, we are continuing to follow the story of Roz, a robot, who ended up on a island after the ship she was on sank in a storm. This is what we have already learnt about the story and about Roz:
- It is a beautiful island, with mountains, rivers, forests and much wildlife, which Roz has already come across.
- Roz seems different to what we think a robot is. It seems like she has feelings and emotions.
- Roz is programmed to find a safe place where she will not get damaged.
- Roz has already learnt important skills from the animals, such as copying the movements of a crab in order to scale a cliff safely.
- We discussed what 'home' means. Roz feels like the island is her home.
For each of the sessions below, you will need to listen to chapters from the story. To listen to the story, click on the picture of the book below:

Please keep up the exercise at home. It is really important to keep your body active as well as your mind. You have several options but please keep it up.

Home Learning W.C 20/04/20 & W.C. 27/04/20
Hello everybody! I hope you are all well. Please see below the home learning tasks for the next two weeks. If you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate to email me (email address above). It would be great to hear from you all, even if just to say 'hi'. Personal health and well-being is the priority at the moment, so I'd love just to hear that you are well.
The activities below just allow you to keep yourselves learning and are not something to feel pressured about.
Maths W.C. 20/04/20 (Week 1)
These first 5 lessons cover the first part of the children learning about fractions in Y3. Just click on the text link in the boxes below to take you to the lessons!
Maths W.C. 27/04/20 (Week 2)
These lessons take children through the second week of fractions in Y3. Just click on the text link in the boxes below to take you to the lessons!
Please click on the picture below to take you to a work booklet all about trolls! Again, this booklet contains lots of activities for the next two weeks.
Please also keep up the reading. I would love you to tell me which books you have been reading. Here are a few activities you could do with your current reading book:
- Character Profile - create a character profile of the main character in the story. This could include a drawing of them, description of their personality, questions you want to ask them and what they like/don't like.
- Noun/Verb/Adjective Hunt - look through a part of your story and see if you can find 10 nouns, verbs, and adjectives. Challenge: can you also find 5 adverbs?
- Vocabulary Detective - find 5 words that you are not familiar with. Use a dictionary (or Google) to find the meaning. Start a page in your home learning books to record your new vocabulary and its meaning.
Please continue to take part in the Joe Wicks morning workouts. They really are a great way to start a day and are perfectly suited to Y3 children.
You may also find the following links useful as they offer other activities and things to do with your children at home.

These two have been busy at home! They have been completing maths task using White Rose Maths. They have also been busy in the kitchen baking delicious cupcakes. They followed the recipe and measured and weighed all the ingredients themselves. I love the brilliant decorations on top!
Great work, girls!
Lovely to see that you have been busy at home planting different seeds (tomatoes, carrots, parsnips, little ladybird poppies and cornflowes). She has been reading 'Wind in the Willows' and has created a painting based on chapters 1 and 2. She's also collected blossom and flowers which she then tied in a bunch (like Stone Age people would have done). And finally, she has been making parsnip soup too.
Great learning. Keep it up!

Hello Y3 (children & parents)!
It's Mr P here. I hope you are safe and well. I thought I would just say a little hello and to give you a few ideas for things to do at home over the next week. I know you are probably all spending lots of time indoors and at home but there is so much you can all do! From painting and craft, den building and construction, to baking and cooking, there is so much to do to fill your time. And remember, it is not just you children who are learning. I am also learning new things, like how to make wild garlic pesto and homemade pasta.
Anyway, I will try to post some bits each week underneath my message. Please feel free to email me any of your home activities - this could be pictures, writing or just an email to say what you've been doing. If you would like me to put any pictures on our web page then please say so in the email.
Once again, I hope you are all ok. Remember to be kind and helpful to your parents/carers at home. Read the kindness quote below. See if you can be a detective and figure out what Plato (the person who said it) means.
"Kindness is more than just deeds. It is an attitude. An expression. A look. A touch. It is anything that lifts another person." (Plato)
Keep your eyes peeled and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
WATCH THIS SPACE!
Mr P reads some of the book 'The Wild Robot'.
Home Learning Activities 26th March 2020
Click on the maths home learning booklet below. Do one activity a day (7 activities):
Write a description of the island in 'The Wild Robot'.
Remember to include the following details:
A rocky coastline, sandy beaches in the south, a forest, a river, mountains, a waterfall, the animals.
Use my sentence below to get started.
Although the island was small, it was interesting. There were so many things for Roz to explore. At the southern end of the island, lay long stretches of soft white sand...
Art - Sketching
With the early release of Frozen 2, I saw this video online of an animator drawing Sven. Why not have a go at watching how he drew the character and then have a go yourself. Remember, when you sketch, use your pencil lightly. Then when you have your basic shapes, you can refine them.
Click on the picture of Sven to watch the tutorial:
It's important to keep your body active and not just your mind. Joe Wicks is doing a morning workout each morning at 9am, live on Youtube. If you can't do it at 9am, then they will stay there to do another time. But, give them a go - I have!

Extract from The Wild Robot (Peter Brown):
'Roz looked down and surveyed the island. Starting from the sandy southern point, the island grew wider and greener and hillier until it finally jutted up into the rocky cone of the mountain. In some places the mountain fell away, leaving sheer cliffs. A waterfall rushed off one cliff and fed a river that wound its way through a great meadow in the center of the island. The river flowed past wildflowers and ponds and boulders and then disappeared into the forest.'
Use the extract to make a list of the following:
