Year 3 Home Learning 20.03.2020

Good morning year 3,

As we will be off for the foreseeable future, please refer to these pages every day. I will post them in the morning for you to do throughout the day but please don’t worry if you get behind or send me them in a different order. I have also allocated you ‘ToDos’ on purple mash linking to English, maths, Science and Geography. There is also a book on there which we can all look at and work through a chapter at a time. If you need your log ons, email me as I have copies.

The office have sent out a text with my correct email address on. If you send me work, I will mark it and give you some recommendations for next steps. I can also differentiate work if your child is finding the tasks I set too challenging.

Here is a timetable for the weeks you are off to help structure your day and give you an idea of how long you should be spending on each lesson.

homeschool timetable

English:

Use the picture and success criteria to write a setting description about the shanty town from our story The Pied Piper. Aim for about half a page of writing taking care with your hand writing.

-adjectives and expanded noun phrases    (eg. There were broke, dirty huts filled with starving children.)

-similes to compare two things  ( eg. The floor was as dirty as a pig sty.)

-alliteration  (e.g Rugged rats roamed the round huts.)

-power of three ( eg. Stinking bins, rat droppings and abandoned rubbish littered the streets.)

-senses  (eg. A strong smell of rotting rubbish fills the air.)

 

Fun activity: Be completely silent for 30 minutes and write about the experience. What did you hear? What did you think about? How did you feel at the beginning/ middle/ end?

 

Maths:

Continue with bus stop method, try to challenge yourself and do some from each challenge to see what your understanding is. This is a lovely video from a child’s point of view explaining it with visual counters.

Challenge 1 (no carrying)

84 ÷ 4=        93 ÷ 3=      86÷2=     99÷ 3=     60÷3=   28÷2=     46÷2=

Challenge 2 (no remainders but you have to carry)

95÷5=       75÷3=      92÷4=     38÷ 2=    80÷5=       72÷6=       48÷3=

Challenge 3 (remainders)

134÷5=   299÷3 =  722÷4=   821÷6=    938÷4=    736÷6=     292÷3=     190÷4=

Challenge 4 – create your own calculations. These could be with 3, 4 or 5 digit numbers inside the ‘bus’.

 

Fun activity: Collect leaves from 10 diferent (non-harmful) plants. Sort them into size, colour and texture. What other ways could you sort them?

Geography:

Think about your local area by looking out from a window in your home and recording which features you can see. Make a tally chart for the following features… remember when you get to 5 it should be recorded like . The numbers in the box below are based on what I can see out of my living room window.

What? Tally Total
Trees // 22
Bushes /// 18
Cars 10
Houses/ flats // 7
Roads / 1
Lamp posts / 6
Services (eg. shops) / 1

Science: Look at two ingredients labels from your food. Compare how much protein/ fat/ sugar and carbohydrates they have in then compare the calorie content. Which item is healthier? Why?

 

Take care and stay safe!
