Year 3 Home Learning 07.05.2020

Good Morning year 3,

As it is a bank holiday tomorrow, today will be the last day of the week I will be sending out work. It is VE day tomorrow which celebrates our victory in Europe signalising the end of WWII  (which from our maths learning last week we know is WW2). To celebrate this, there will be a whole school fun Friday task for you to do and send me pictures of.



Describe one of the adventures as if you were Tony. Start with the line “I was travelling in the Radio- flyer; when…”. Use this success criteria to help you make your writing interesting.

Success Criteria

-conjunctions (if, so, but, when, then, and, because)

-expanded noun phrases (we rode down the long, winding path)

-Speech of characters (“How are we going to get out of here, Grandad?” I shouted.)

-Past tense   (… then suddenly we were flying!




There are 12 hours written on an analogue clock, however, we can look at time in either 12hour or 24hour form.

A trick to convert 12 hour to 24 hour time is to add 12 to the number you see. e.g if the time is 3.00pm this can also be written as 15:00 (3+12=15). You only need to write AM and PM on 12 hour times so we know which time in the day it is.

Convert these PM times into 24 hour clock times:

e.g 2.00pm   =   14:00    (remember… 2 + 12 = 14)

  1. a) 4.00pm =
  2. b) 6.00pm =
  3. c) 9.00pm =
  4. d) 7.30pm =
  5. e) 11.30pm =
  6. f) 10.15pm =



Today we will look at numbers in French. You might be able to remember some of them up to 10 from previous learning.

Here is a poster with the translations for numbers 0-30 on: French number poster

Challenge 1- learn numbers 0-10

Challenge 2- learn numbers 0-20

Challenge 3- learn numbers 0-30

You can also watch this song to help you with pronunciations. If you are doing challenge 3 you will need to research numbers 21-30.



To continue our topic of structures, we are going to design and create a kite. We are going to start by looking at the shape and structure of a kite by designing our own. Kites need to be able to catch enough wind for the force to keep them up in the sky. They therefore need to have wide areas and a string for you to hold onto. A traditional kite design looks like this:

However, as this is YOUR kite, you can get creative with the shape and measurements. Follow this success criteria to help you design your kite paying attention to critical elements of your design.

Success Criteria:

  1. Think about which material you will use for the kite base and the measurements of this.
  2. Think about how you are going to keep your structure together (eg using sticks to spread the material out.
  3. Think about the length of string you will need to keep hold of your kite when it is in the sky.
  4. Think about the design on your kite. How will you decorate it to make it look exciting?

Send me a picture of your design specifying which materials you will use and what your measurements will be. Your task next week will be to make your kite so try to design a kite with materials you and your adult have access to.


Take care and stay safe,

Miss Ayrton
