Year 3 Summer 2020

Year 3 Home Learning 

 

Dear Year 3 children

 

 How are you all? We hope you’re looking after yourselves and the other people in your home.

 

It is very strange not going to school and seeing you all. We’re sure you are missing us teachers even more than you’re missing your friends, right?! We’re missing seeing you all every day, having a catch up, a laugh and watching you all learn.

 

We also know that you are learning all sorts at home. Who has done some cooking? Building? Painting? Drawing? All the things that we find it difficult to find the time for in school sometimes. We would love to see what you’ve been doing! So, keep in touch with us by taking a look with a grown-up at our Facebook group ‘Windwhistle Year 3 2020’ and you’re very welcome to email us at yr3@windwhistle.extendlearning.org. That way we can still share and keep in contact.

 

Parents, we understand this is such a strange time to be going through. If you need help or advice or just to share a frustration or celebrate and success, please get in touch with us and we’ll do our best to help. We’re as new to this as you are!

 

Look after each other Year 3 – we’re proud of how you’re dealing with this.  

 

Mrs James, Mrs Riley and Mr Massey

 

Year 3 Home Learning - Summer 2020

 

The home learning tasks will be changing a little bit now. Daily reading and times tables practice, especially of x3, x4 and x8, would be super. Along with this, we have put together a collection of websites which can be accessed at home. Not all of these require the child to use the tablet or laptop. They are websites which can be used by yourselves to set challenges too. If you want any further advice or help with this, please get in touch using the Facebook page or at yr3@windwhistle.extendlearning.org.


All previous home learning suggestions will remain on the website so if there is something you didn’t do, or really enjoyed, they will all be available to access.

 

We’re happy to post suggestions on Facebook also so let us know if that’s something you might like. Year 3 are not going back to school yet so we will continue to support you in any way we can.

Things to think about:

-        What would you do?

-        Do you meet anything or any other characters?

-        How do you feel about it?

-        How will you end the story?

 

You could use this piece of writing to show off how well you can remember what we looked at before lockdown.

Maybe use some complex sentences that have (because, if, when, after, while, before). Just remember the commas on the fronted complex sentences.

Or

You could use similes to make some really imaginative comparisons to what you have seen.

Writing- Friday 8th May (Today is officially bank holiday so less structured activities than the rest of the week.

 

I am curious about how much reading the children have been doing as it is such an important skill. I want to know about something you have read while on lockdown what it was about and why you liked reading it.

For most of you this could be a story book but for those of you that reading can be a bit more of a chore it could be a magazine, comic, a set of instructions for a game or anything else you can think of that you have read.

 

Maths- Week beginning 4/5/20

 

Main activity

Monday

 1. Think of a two digit number (can’t be same digits eg 44).

2. Reverse the digits to make a second number.

3. Subtract the smaller number from the larger number.

4. Reverse the numbers again.

5. Add the numbers from step 3 and 4.

 

Do you always get the same number? Are there any exceptions

 

Eg.   71             Challenge 2 try with 3 digit numbers    341

        17                                                                          143

 

     54                                                                            198

Tuesday

 

 The value of fractions- this task could be as big or a little as you like.

 

Which is more?

 

 

How could you show these fractions in different ways to prove which is bigger than another? Compare only 2 fractions at a time. You could use pizza, cake, sweets or chocolate. You could use paper or pictures. Some might be harder to compare than others.

 

For example:                                                                                                

                                       me    left

                                                                 

 

        

                          

Weds

Perimeters of squares of rectangles

The perimeter is the distance around the outside of a shape. What combinations can you make of the length of its sides?

Can you also group them into these groups:

Squares- All equal sides. Eg 2cm + 2cm + 2cm + 2cm

Rectangles- 2 pairs of equal sides. Eg. 1cm + 3cm + 1cm + 3cm

If you want another challenge try the same with:

a.     12

b.     16

c.      25

 

Thursday

Which one? (measures and place value task)

 

Ask a parent to get you 3-5 household items from the cupboard (these need to be things that have g or kg written on them). Can you order them from lightest to heaviest by using the numbers written on them?

E.g.      

                                                             

                   425g                                         700g                         

 

You can also repeat this task for liquid products (things that have ml or l written on them). Obviously you won’t compare liquids and weights at the same time). Can you order them from least liquid to most)

 

As you are doing the task can you guess/ work out how many g are in a kg?

Can you guess/ work out how many ml are in a l?

 

Please make sure items given to children are safe and/or supervised

Friday

  or        20 minutes to 11           or             

 

 

Tell a parent the time or record a short video of you telling us the time to post on the facebook page.

 

Challenge yourself though. Most of you will be able to do o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.

Ways to make it more challenging:

-      Use multiples of 5 minutes past (eg. 25 minutes past)

-      Use non multiples of 5 past (eg. 12 minutes past)

-      Use multiples of 5 minutes to (eg. 20 minutes to)

-      Use non multiples of 5 to (eg. 12 minutes to)

-      Tell us the time after midday (13:20 would be 1:20)

 

 

Other subjects

Task 1- PE- Daily exercise with Joe Wicks at Joe Wicks

PE in school would usually be twice a week so doing this or another form of exercise 2 or more times a week would be super.

 

Task 2- DT/Art- I was thinking we could make key worker and superhero people out of cardboard toilet roll tubes. This could show our appreciation further for keyworkers and the NHS by putting them amongst superheroes.

 

    

 

 

Task 3- Science- Float or sink

 

Fill something up with water. This could be a bowl, sink, bath, paddling pool etc. Then find household items around the house that you can drop into the water. Do they float or do they sink? Is there anything similar (the same) about the things that sink? Is there anything similar (the same) about the things that float?

 

This video might help explain some things Floating and sinking

 

 

Task 4 (2 day project)- Make a poster about natural disasters.
