Good morning Year 3,
This weeks project is really important because we would like everyone to create a self-portraits which will go onto the front cover of your end of Year 3 school report. Therefore we are expecting high-quality pieces of art. We would like everyone to try their hardest.
This week in English we will be looking at a new myth called Pandora’s Box. In Maths we are continuing with learning about time. This week we will be focusing on telling the time to the nearest minute, AM/ PM, and the 24 hour clock system. This week the spelling rule are are focusing on is words with the ay /eI/ sound spelt ei, eigh or ey. This week’s words are: veil, neighbour, eight, reign, they, obey, beige, sleigh, vein, weigh.
We have left up the ‘This is Me’ written assignments for your reports in case you still need to complete the written activity for your reports.
Remember if you need any support with your home learning you can always ask Miss Martin or Miss Reeve a questions.
We are so incredibly proud of Year Three and it has been a joy to see your home learning each day, we would like to thank you all!
Over the next week we will be reading the Greek myth of Icarus and Deadauls. We will then be writing a diary entry from the point of view of Icarus. In Maths this week we are going to be looking at telling the time. We will also be learning how many days there are in each month. Remember to work through the PowerPoints and listen to the instructions before completing your assigned work. Your spelling focus this week is words from the Year 3 list of words. This week you will need to use your times table knowledge to help you answer the daily division questions. You can also use last weeks methods to help you.
As you would of seen last week our History focus for this term is all about Ancient Greece. This week though, we are going to start looking at the Olympics and how it has changed since it was created in Ancient Greece.
Keep smiling Year Three and we look forward to seeing your wonderful work and achievements on Seesaw.
Miss Martin and Miss Reeve
We had another great week last week of Home Learning. This week in Maths we are learning to use column method to multiply a two digit number by a one digit number. We will also be looking at different strategies to divide a two digit number by a one digit number. This week’s English activities are very important as they will go into your end of Year 3 reports. Miss Reeve and I will write about how you have got on with Year 3 and this is your chance to add your own thoughts to your report.This week we are continuing to look at suffixes. We will focus on the suffix -ly with the root words ending in ‘le’ and ‘ic’.
For your project this week you need to create a fact file about the Ancient Greeks and answer this question: Who were the Ancient Greeks and what was life like?
We would like to encourage you all to be physically active from home and Hunts School Sports Partnership have put together some great resources to help us do this. You can find a general overview of weekly challenges on your Seesaw account.
We are looking forward to seeing your amazing work from this week. Good luck.
Hello Year 3
Welcome back to your online learning. We hope you have had a wonderful and restful Easter break. This week in Maths we are going to be looking at scaling. Scaling is used to describe situations in which one measurement or number is increased by fixed proportion. For example, language such as ‘double’, ‘times as many’, ‘times as large’ or ‘times as heavy’ may be used to compare the relationship between two quantities. Calculations are carried out using multiplication or repeated addition.
In English we are going to finding out about Greek Myths as our topic for this half term would have been ‘Let the Games Begin’ which would have focused on the Ancient Greeks. You are going to be reading the Greek Myth called Arachne and Athena and your aim for the end of the week will be to re-write this myth. You will be expected to demonstrate various skills including using speech marks correctly and structuring a story with a clear beginning, middle and ending.
As you did in the weeks before the Easter break, please work through the Power Points before completing the assigned work. Your weekly times tables and spelling focus has also been posted on Seesaw.
Your first project for this new term is focusing on Science. Our Science for this half term is Plants so this week I would like you to start researching parts of plants and the life cycle of a flowering plant. All flowering plants go through the same stages of life cycle. The main stages are germination, growing and flowering, pollination, fertilisation and seed dispersal. Can you design and create a way to represent the stages of the life cycle?
Good Luck Year 3 and we are looking forward to reading your responses.
