As always, thank you for your continued support and lovely emails, I really appreciate them. 

Scroll below for up to date school work!

Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely half term, I cannot wait to hear what you all got up to! I am in school this week, so please accept my apologies if I am slow at responding to your messages! 

 

Some suggested story based resources to support with your child's wellbeing at this time:

Suggested tasks for 05/06/2020

Literacy: Please find the activities in the 'Literacy Work' folder below, we are on Day 5. The notes of and instructions are all typed out in page one of the document. If you try any of the fun activities suggested, please send me some pictures, it would be lovely to see what you have got up to! Previous work posted below. Please also remember, if you do not have a printer it does not mean that this work cannot be adapted, it might just mean your child needs to look at the screen a little longer. Or they can write down some of the questions and go off and answer them in their books. This literacy work is great and comprehensive! 

 If you have completed this then perhaps you could look at this link for some punctuation revision. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/english-games/7-11-years/spelling-and-grammar and/or https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?e=spelling-grammar05  

Numeracy: Please find the maths documents in the folder below, it is a recap of some time telling work. (All of this weeks work is in the folder)

  • Page 1 of the folder has the answers,
  • page 2 has worksheets and a code to help you decipher what work is for what day e.g. 'Summer Block 2 D1' meaning 'Day 1.'
  • Page 3 has Powerpoints on it
  • Page 4 has more worksheet options

I have put at least 10 lessons in the folder in case you have already covered some of this work and would like to look at the next lesson. I would also love to encourage you to keep revising key skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You can find some brilliant worksheets etc. on Twinkl. 

History: Our new topic this term would have been the Stone Age, if you would like to do any topic work related to this, then I would be delighted. For example, you could write a non-chronological report about the Stone age, make some models from the stone age, powerpoint, fact files etc. It is completely up to you what you would like to do. Ongoing project. 

Spellings: Last week I sent you a message on dojo about a new spelling scheme we are trialling. I hope you are getting on well with it but if you haven't go ahead and check it out (details below.)

A reminder to you all, I would like to stress that the daily tasks below are only a guidance on things you can do. I appreciate home life has to fit around this, whatever you can get done is great but if nothing can be done then don't worry, these are unique times. I am fully aware of how hard it will be to put all of this into your day, so pace yourself and get them done when you can. Sending you all well wishes and I'm here on Dojo if you need me.  

 

Useful links!

 

 See previous day/weeks below in case you wanted to finish something off.  

 

 If you want an extra task, why not write a story including as many of the recent learning points you have covered? E.g. adverbs, imperative verbs, commas in a list, apostrophes, articles etc. I would love to see what you can do! 

 

Other things I can think that will help: youtube any clips to see how certain learning pieces are done. This is a great way for the children to see how to do something in an interactive way. There are some brilliant sites offering free access at the moment and if you want to take a look at some of the websites they are as follows:

  1. Twinkl - they offer brilliant resources across the curriculum - https://www.twinkl.co.uk 
  2. Jump Start Jonny - an active site that allows the children to follow exercise videos - https://www.jumpstartjonny.co.uk/home 
  3. Joe Wicks - another exercise site, of you scroll down you will find he is doing a 'live' on youtube at times across the week for kids to join him in exercise - https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html
  4. Another site for maths resources - https://www.mathsisfun.com/worksheets/ 
  5. Maths site for free worksheets - http://www.mental-arithmetic.co.uk
  6. This website helps with different areas of the curriculum - https://www.topmarks.co.uk 
  7. This site offers educational games in English focusses e.g. spotting adjectives etc. - https://www.educationquizzes.com/ks2/english/
  8. For reading, have a browse of this website and find some useful resources - https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk
  9. This is another website for reading comprehensions that you can use along your vipers handout - https://www.everyschool.co.uk/english-key-stage-2-comprehension-2.html 

I really hope these help you, I am available on Dojo to answer questions as best I can.

Suggested tasks for 14/05/20

Literacy: See document below with instructions of identifying the key elements in a non chronological report. It is from the same scheme as you had last week/early this week with an instruction first page and texts on the following pages. As always, if you do not have a printer you can adapt the work to suit you. Perhaps read the passage and write out the answers in your notebooks instead of on the printed page. You can see below I have left up the spelling details because I am really eager for you guys to test it out. For those of you I have already heard from, I am really pleased to see you are enjoying it and have some positive feedback already! 

Numeracy: Maths lesson as follows on Whiterose - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ Summer term  - w/c 4th May - converting pounds and pence.

I hope you are all happy with the lessons you are on and you are making progress. If you feel anything has been missed out then please feel free to head back through the weeks and identify any gaps missed. I would also love to encourage you to keep revising key skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You can find some brilliant worksheets etc. on Twinkl. 

Suggested tasks for 12/05/20

Literacy: Continue with your story writing of your own version of Fantastic Mr Fox. If you have completed this and edited it then I would love for you to focus your time towards a character description of Mr Fox himself. Take notes and ideas from the books description but I would like to see one of your own, in your words. Consider the following:

His appearance - what does he look like?

His character - what is his personality like?

Can you try and describe him using fronted adverbials, commas in a list, a variety of sentence types/openers, apostrophes for possession and descriptive adjectives. I have included a checklist below for you to refer to. I can't wait to read these descriptions, I would love to post them here on the website if you are happy for me to do that? If so, ask your adult to send a picture on dojo with permission. Go and make yourself proud and see what amazing work you can do!  Check out this link if you need to for some help on writing character descriptions - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brM5GlSLpdk 

Suggested tasks for 11/05/20

Literacy: Continue with your story writing of your own version of Fantastic Mr Fox if you have completed it then look at editing and improving the work. Re read the work and see if there is any punctuation missing, adjectives to improve, sentence structure to change and adding more detail to your story. Use the story as some inspiration if you need to.

Music: Here is a lesson with Beccy Owen who is going to teach you one of her very own songs. Follow her video to learn more! 

Suggested tasks for 07/05/20

Literacy: This is a unit that will continue for a few lessons. Take a look at the document below and follow the instructions for today. Yesterday, you recapped the story so far and created your own story mountain for your own version of Fantastic Mr Fox. Today, start your story and remember to take it paragraph at a time. Plan what grammar and punctuation you want to use in it and perhaps even write some sentences out in advance. Remember, 2-3 key features you have learnt or revised lately to include in this paragraph. For example, in the introduction I would be describing the setting and characters therefore I might choose to use: fronted adverbials, commas in a list and apostrophes for possession. 

Example sentence to describe Mr Fox:

Mr Fox was a handsome, tall, wise and bold man with long whiskers on his face. On his face, lay a mischievous smile that dazzled anyone who met him. Mr Fox's family included Mrs Fox... 

You can see I used commas in a list, followed by a fronted adverbial (On his face,) and apostrophe for possession.

Parents, if your children want to move onto writing today, that isn't a problem! I would encourage them to take it paragraph at a time and ask them to think of 2-3 key features they have learnt or revised lately to include in this paragraph. For example, in the introduction I would be describing the setting and characters therefore I might choose to use: fronted adverbials, commas in a list and apostrophes for possession.

https://www.getset.co.uk/travel-tokyo this is a website associated with the Tokyo Olympics and has some great activities to participate in.

Suggested tasks for 28/04/20

Literacy: Today I would like to see the children develop their sentence structure away from simple sentences to more complex ones. This is best done including a few different devices:

  • Subordinating conjunctions - A subordinating conjunction joins a main clause to a subordinate clause. E.g. I had to wash up even though it was not my turn. If further help is needed on these, look at this website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/zqk37p3 
  • interesting adjectives - describing words 
  • Adverb openers - An adverbial is a word or phrase that has been used like an adverb to add detail or further information to a verb. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=14&v=Lk-_LIc3dWA&feature=emb_logo 
  • homophones - A homophone can be defined as a word that, when pronounced, seems similar to another word, but has a different spelling and meaning.
  • commas in a list - separate items in a list with commas and when you come to the last two items they are separated by an 'and' instead of a comma. 

To inspire your writing today you have three items a feather, stone and flower. I want you to describe them through interesting and varied sentences or if you want more of a challenge, you can write a short section explaining where one of those items could take you if it was magical.

  • What is the bird on the left doing? How do you know?
  • Do you think that the bird’s song is good or bad? Why?
  • Does that bird often sing?
  • What is the bird on the right thinking? What might it say when the other bird has finished singing?
  • Which bird is more confident?
  • Which bird do you best relate to?
  • Have you ever been in a situation like this one?

Suggested tasks for 24/04/20

Literacy: Your task today is to use the correct article 'a' or 'an' in sentences. This means you need to make sure when writing sentences using 'a' or 'an' that you use the correct one. For example 'I want a apple' is incorrect because you should use 'an' next to nouns/adjectives that beginning with a vowel. See a handy rule below. 

Use a before nouns (or adjectives) that start with a consonant sound.

Use an before nouns (or adjectives) that start with a vowel sound.

Here is a great website to use to test your knowledge of articles https://uk.ixl.com/ela/year-3/use-the-correct-article-a-or-an if you can't use a website today then try writing sentences using the correct article or if you would like to write a story (any type you would like) then make sure you are using them correctly. As we know, it is an area that we need to revise.

 Suggested tasks for 23/04/20

Literacy: Today's task is to write some of the homophones you looked at yesterday into descriptive sentences. When writing these sentences, don't forget to be descriptive, use adjectives, adverbs and detail to make them exciting. For example look how I can improve this homophone sentence: The sun was behind the cloud = The blazing, hot sun hid behind the fluffy clouds that slowly moved across the sky. In pink I have highlighted the adjectives I have used and in blue the adverb that I chose. Try some of your own, don't forget to be descriptive! 

Numeracy:

Reading: Make sure you spend some time reading to an adult or to yourselves. I wonder if you can spot any homophones in your book? Perhaps you could make a list of as many as you come across? 

History: Can you research what Five Oak Green was like in the past? Perhaps you could make a poster about the history of the village, the jobs it offered, the oldest buildings etc. I'd love to learn more about the village. 

Suggested tasks for 22/04/20

Literacy: Today's task is more of a spelling focus. I thought it would be fun for you to think of some homophones and draw them. These are words that sound the same as others but mean something completely different and are also spelt differently. You could split your page into as many boxes or sections as you would like and then create drawings to go with the homophone you are spelling. For example, I would draw the sun and someone's son, one would be the beautiful sun in the sky and the other someone's child. Here is a list of suggested homophones for you to draw: 

knight and night 

hair and hare 

see and sea 

blew and blue 

flour and flower 

ant and aunt 

deer and dear 

Use your imagination to draw these, whatever helps you show you know the difference between the words will be great! You could also choose some of your own! 

Numeracy: Follow the Whiterose lesson found here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ WEEK 2 LESSON 3. 

Art: I have found an art lesson I thought the children might enjoy following. It is lead by an Australian artist who has a style I feel the children could adopt nicely. Take a look and see what you think. The task suggests going out and looking at local landmarks, obviously I would encourage you to find an image online or to pause the video on his chosen landscape. Enjoy! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zdsb9j6 

 

Suggested tasks for 21/04/20

Literacy: Now using your knowledge of imperative verbs, adverbs and introduction to instructions. Can you write a new set of instructions for how to either make breakfast, brush your hair, brush your teeth, play a game, do an exercise or directions to the shop (you could also base it on anything else you would like). It would be great to reinforce your understanding of what we use in instructions as well as seeing you use all of the features. Perhaps when you are done you can give them to someone in your house to try and they can tell you if you missed something important out! Just to make sure you don't miss anything, why don't you practice your instructions first! 

Numeracy: follow the white rose lesson found here - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ WEEK 2 LESSON 2. I know there were some technical issues with Whiterose yesterday, bear with the website, it should be better this morning. 

Geography: One of the UK's national treasures (and one of my favourite people) Sir David Attenborough is offering a set of Geography lessons to children. I will be keeping my eye out for where these are being posted and will copy the link for you as soon as I can. In the meantime, here is a BBC bitesize lesson on maps https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhtyvk7 there are a couple of videos here to show how to use maps and compasses. Once that is done there is an interactive question asking you to label a compass and after that a worksheet for you to draw a map of your local area. If you don't have a printer, why not draw the map on a plain piece of paper. 

Suggested tasks for 20/04/20

Literacy: Looking at the work you did last week with imperative verbs (used in your instructions), can you now revise the instructions you wrote adding in an introduction. You do this for the reader to understand what they are about to do/make/create. You can also 'purple pen' your work by adding in adverbs to add description to your instructions. 

Numeracy:  follow the white rose lesson found here - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ WEEK 2, lesson 1. 

Science: Before Easter, in school we were learning about shadows and light. I wonder if you can come up with your own project to explain what you have observed about shadows and light. This could be to do with shadows growing longer at certain points of the day or it could be about the lightness and darkness of some shadows and why this happens. I am happy to see this work presented in any way you wish, poster, explanation write up, observational diary etc. Use this website to help you if you would like, or search for others you might think are helpful!

Suggested tasks for 17/04/20

Literacy: when writing instructions it is important to use imperative verbs. Imperitive verbs are known as bossy verbs, they tell you what to do. They are most commonly found at the start of a sentence and the command you to do something. E.g. 'Place your baking tray on the side and allow it to cool.' Note how my sentence is bossy and commands you place the baking tray down instead of asking politely. Make a list of all of the imperative verbs you can think of/find and then use them in some sentences that instruct someone to do something e.g. brushing your teeth, making toast. 

Numeracy: follow the white rose lesson found here - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ WEEK 1 LESSON 5. 

Geography: I have seen some great local area work so far, well done! If you could choose one shop/business/attraction to add to Five Oak Green, what would it be? Tell me why you chose it, what good it will bring to the village, how it will help the village and where it would go. With the last point try and give me directions e.g. beside the corner shop, in front of..., behind..., to the left of... etc. I would be very interested to see what you think the village would benefit from!

 Suggested tasks for 27.03.20

Literacy: To look at apostrophes for possession (singular and plural). Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNFPnVz7JB4 and then write some sentences using apostrophes to show plural and singular possession. These could be written about anything you like!

Numeracy: Visit this website https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ and complete lesson 1. Write examples into your learning book. 

Topic: Continue to research the Olympic games and present your information in whatever way you have chosen! 

 Suggested tasks for 26.03.20

Literacy: Today can you write an informative letter from Odysseus to Penelope about his terrible and long journey around the world. In your letter you might include some of the monsters he encountered, gods he met and annoyed, problems he faced etc. You can make up the letter addresses and dates, this will be a fun piece of writing where you get to recount all of the terrible things happening to poor Odysseus! 

Numeracy: Continue to look at fractions and diagrams that support fractions. Perhaps you could make some for your parents or siblings to answer? Teach someone in the house what you understand of fractions and if you would like, make a poster to remind me all about them! 

Topic: Two day study on The Olympics, find out as much as you can on the tradition that started many centuries ago. Tell me all you have learnt about the games in any way you would like, Powerpoint, poster, letter, recount, written paragraphs or any other way you can think of, perhaps a video! 

 

Suggested tasks for 25.03.2020

Literacy: To revise the key punctuation skills the children have learnt, they could write sentences for this or present the sentences in a powerpoint. I would love to see a number of sentences on each of these punctuation pieces. Full stops, question marks, exclamation points, commas in a list, fronted adverbials and some sentences with contractions in. You choose how many to do, if you want to extend the task write more. You can write them related to anything you'd like. 

Numeracy: Today I would like the children to focus on fractions. Can they investigate fractions and understand that fractions have a numerator and denominator and what these are. They could then write some examples of fractions and then draw them as shapes shaded in to help visually represent it. See this video for an idea on how to do this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnekh22f3_A 

Topic: Can you tell me what the Greek's did for entertainment in Ancient times? Make a fact file or poster on this! 

 

Suggested tasks for 24.03.2020

Literacy: Having looked at informative features in a letter yesterday it would be great to write an informative letter today (if you haven't already written one) if you have perhaps write another one to a different person. Focus on capital letters, full stops, questions and commas in a list. Bonus points if you can include some contractions (don't, won't, didn't etc.) as well as a fronted adverbial (This morning, I went for a run around the park.) Thinking about how we would do this in school we would do a few drafts to make sure we understood the different features and truly understand how we write letters. 

Numeracy: draw some shapes and use your ruler to measure the perimeter. Remember to use cm to do this and for those shapes that aren't exactly cm lengths, to use mm as well. For example if I draw a rectangle and measure it I find that two sides are 5.5cm and 7.8cm. Write the different lengths along the side of the shape. Get someone in your family to measure them, did they get the same answers as you? 

Topic: Research education in Ancient Greek times and write me a report of what you have learnt. If you can research using a computer then that is great. If there isn't one available then tell me what you think education in Ancient Greek times was like, who got educated, who did not, where did they get educated etc.

Reading: read to an adult and when you close the book tell them what happened in the book so far. 

 

Suggested tasks for 23.03.2020: 

Literacy: Research the features of a letter and produce a poster or a page annotating the features. Look at the positioning of features and how they fit on a page. Focus on informative letter writing as you can write an informative letter to your friend or relative. As this develops you can draft a letter using some of your fantastic punctuation focusses. Present this in your books, on paper, powerpoint or any other way you would like. 

Numeracy: revise perimeter - how to find missing lengths, comparing lengths and language used in measurements. These can be written into their books or on paper. They can draw some of their own shapes and give them measurements to add together to find the perimeter. 

Topic: research the ancient Greeks jobs, make a poster of your favourite job and tell me all about it. 

Reading: I would suggest when reading a passage of your book that someone uses Vipers (the sheet we spoke about on World Book Day) to question your understanding of the book. 

Spellings: Make it your mission to learn as many of the spellings on the Class 3/4 list as you can. I will send out a further list to focus on in due time.
