We practise a selection of these each week in out spelling test.

Can you write a newspaper report about the event? Create a heading, use the 5 W's (who, what, where, when and why) to help you write the report. Don't forget to add some eye witness reports. Draw an image to go with your newspaper report. 

 

 

Spellings - why don't you ask a grown up to test you on some of the spellings you have been practising this week. 

 

 

 

Maths -  Consolidating our previous learning

Go to page 10 and 11 in your study book and complete the two pages of practice questions. How many can you get right?

 

Today's work will focus on all of your number and place value knowledge and skills.  

 

 

Reading - On Purple Mash I have set the last two chapters of the Egyptian story to read, once you have read the chapters, answer the multiple choice questions. Remember to ask a grown-up for support if you are struggling with any words in the story. There is also an opportunity for you to compare the characters in the story and write a book review. I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on the story.

Home learning for Year 3 - Thursday 2nd April 2020

I would like to say well done to all the children who are working so hard at home - I am incredibly proud of you. I am enjoying seeing the pictures of your work on Class Dojo and also looking at your finished work on Purple Mash.

 

English - Click on the link below which will take you to pobble365. Have a look at the image and then answer the questions below. You are also more than welcome to complete the other activities that are on the website.

  • Which animal would be suited to working in the health clinic?
  • Can you give suggestions as to the jobs of the other animals in the picture?
  • If you could have any job, what would it be and why?
  • If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
  • What problems might happen in Animal Town that would not happen in human towns?
  • Are there any similar problems that both animals and humans experience?
  • Would animals be better off without humans?
  • Would humans be better off without animals?

 

 

I have also set some spelling 2 do's on Purple Mash focusing on the prefixes 'in' and 'im'. We have covered these in class already so this is just to refresh the children's brains.

 

Also make sure you practise some of the words from the statutory list.

 

Maths -  Consolidating our previous learning

Number and place value

Read page 9 of the study book to refresh your place value knowledge. Then complete pages 16 and 17 in your question book.

 

Today's work will focus on solving number problems - this is something the children are familiar with and these are types of questions we answer in class frequently. 

 

 

Reading - On Purple Mash I have set another chapter of the Egyptian story to read, once you have read the chapter, answer the multiple choice questions. Remember to ask a grown-up for support if you are struggling with any words in the story. Today you are also asked to write an official announcement for an event that happens in today's chapter.

Art - Can you draw a picture of an Egyptian pyramid? Focus on the detail of the pyramid and use shading to help achieve this. Use Google to help you look at images of pyramids up close. You could even use Google Earth to actually look at the real pyramids in Egypt.

Make sure you draw a nice background for the pyramid (remember it will be in a desert).

As an extra challenge can you make your pyramid look 3D? Post pictures on Class Dojo of your art work if you can.  

 

Geography/Life skill challenge - Can you draw a map of the route you walk or drive to school? Once you hahve done this go on Google Earth and fill in the names of the streets you walk/drive down.

Home learning for Year 3 - Wednesday 1st April 2020

English - Use your notes from yesterday to create a set of instructions for how to look after your chosen animal.

 

Do not forget to use all the features of an instruction text such as - list of equipment, sub-headings, adjectives, time connectives, bullet points, imperative (bossy verbs).

 

Make sure you include lots of detail so that somebody could come along, pick up your instructions and be able to follow them to look after the animal.

 

Remember our 'How to wash a pharoah' work from class, follow the same sort of plan and you will be successful in your writing.

 

There are also a selection of 2 do's that have been set on purple mash that focus on spelling (homophones). We have already focused on these in our spelling lessons in school so you should be familiar with the words. 

 

Continue to learn your spellings from the sheet provided in your home learning pack.

Important Information

Spellings will be sent home each Friday, could you please practise these with your child over the week. They will then be tested the following Friday.

 

At St. Joseph's we believe that reading is the key to success. It is important that you read with your child each night. The children will fetch their reading book home each day, once you have heard them read, please sign their reading diary to let us know.

 

P.E. is on Thursday mornings, please ensure your child's kit is in school for this.

 

Homework will be given out each Friday and will be expected back in school by the following Wednesday.

 

Thank you 

 

Miss Heys
