Home Learning Menu 1- Y3

Home Learning Menu

We are mindful not to place any undue pressure on our children at this already anxious time but appreciate it may help some families to follow some routine.

Please find attached an optional menu of ideas for Year 3 to complete over the next few weeks.

It is important that the children have balance during each day. Try and complete one from each column to ensure the children have a variety of physical, academic and mindfulness activities.

Challenge! Can you complete every activity before ‘Learning Menu 2’ is added in 3 weeks time?

Homework week ending 13th March

 

Maths

Please continue to encourage your child to practise times tables skills with TTRockstars. I am very impressed with how many coins some children have managed to earn already. 

Spelling

Please help your child to practise spelling number words by asking them to write 3 digit numbers eg if you say 375, your child should write three hundred and seventy-five (use a hyphen between the tens and the ones)

Reading

Please continue to read regularly with your child. Next week your child will complete a reading comprehension test and the results will be shared with you at the parent/teacher meeting in the near future.

Grammar

I have sent another grammar test home for you to complete with your child in preparation for a grammar test in school next week. Again, the results will be discussed with you when we meet.

Y3 visit to Creswell Crags

On Monday Year 3 went to Creswell Crags to learn more about Stone Age times. It was an exciting day filled with lots of different activities including exploring a cave, assembling bones into skeletons, and learning basic survival skills which would have been needed thousands of years ago. Take a look at the photos to see what we did.

Homework week ending 6. 3. 2020

 

Maths

This week we have been learning to multiply and divide by 10 and 100. Your child has been given a sheet to consolidate this learning. The sheet says to copy and complete the number sentences. I stead, please ask your child to write the missing numbers on the sheet.

Reading

Please talk to your child about books you particularly enjoyed when you were a child. It would be good for your child to go through the books they have at home to remind themselves of books they have particularly enjoyed in the past, and then talk about what they liked about the books. Please continue to read regularly at home. Just 10 minutes a day adds up to more than an hour a week.

‘Young people who enjoy reading very much are three times as likely to read above the level expected for their age as young people who do not enjoy reading at all’ Children’s and Young People’s Reading in 2015, National Literacy Trust

Grammar

In a couple of weeks, your child will complete a grammar test in school. I have sent home a short test for the children to complete which will remind them about some of the areas we have covered in school. I have included the answers on the back so you can discuss the questions with your child.

Homework week ending 28.2.2020

 

Maths

Please continue to encourage your child to use Times Tables Rock Stars. The children have been shown the shop on the site where they can spend their well-earned coins. I would prefer it if the children could do this activity at home so the time in school is spent on times table practice.

Reading

Next week is world Book Day. More information about this is on the weekly newsletter. Please help your child to choose a character to dress up as on Thursday and collect the items needed for it. Please don’t feel obliged to buy something special as home-made costumes are often the best.

Next week, your child can bring to school a book that they have particularly enjoyed reading to tell other children about it. It would be good if some children could bring their book at the beginning of the week so we don’t have too many to look at in one day.

Please read regularly with your child and return the record book to school on Wednesday.

Spelling

Next week we will revise the months of the year. Please help your child to write each month and identify the tricky part of the word. Writing over these letters in a different colour can help to commit the spellings to memory eg February. Breaking the word into syllables can also help eg De -cem- ber. Do make sure that your child writes each month using a capital letter which is a tall letter and which doesn’t join to the second letter of the word.

Y3 activity day

On Tuesday the children learned how to make replica Stone Age necklaces using clay. They read some instructions to find out how to make them, and then the children wrote their own set of instructions. Today, they set about trying to follow their own instructions to make a replica necklace. The bead bones and teeth are now drying out ready to be threaded next week.

In the afternoon, the children worked in the woods to create stone structures similar to the ones we have been learning about during the Stone Age. Before they began, they practised designs using a variety of wooden bricks. Take a look at the photos of these activities. I’m sure you will be impressed with what the children created. They worked together well showing resilience and good co-operation skills.

At the end of the session, the children visited the different structures and the team who made them explained what they had created. Back in the classroom, the children wrote a brief description of their structures. Here are some of the descriptions for you to match to the photos:

Our stone structure is called The Bird Stone. Our structure is used for feeding birds. It looks like a castle with seeds on it.     Magnus

Our stone structure is called Standhenge. It was used as a burial ground. It is made out of stone. It looks really nice. We used big rocks and sticks.     Eleanor and Adriel

Our stone structure is called Pebblehenge. It was used for telling the time. It is made from stone and greens. It has an archway, a circle of tiny stones and some dirt. It looks like Stonehenge but it is also made of pebbles.     Zofia and Ellen W

Our stone structure is called Stone Home. It is a burial ground. It had holly leaves around it to stop people touching it with their hands, but they could touch it with their feet.     Nichu

Our stone structure is called Flintstone House. It was used for keeping safe at night and for keeping precious things in it. It looks like a small mountain and it has stones around it. At the back it has got lots of sticks to look like decorations.     Eibhlin, Indie and Charlotte

Our stone structure is called Flintstone Burial Site. It was used for praying for and burning the dead people. It is made from rocks and stones.     Noah

Our stone structure is called Poshposh. It was for little creatures to live in. It has flowers, rocks and leaves in the middle.     Margaret, Lily-Mae and Emily
