Year 3

To make it easier for you to navigate the remote learning, we have divided the work into days. Each day has 4 pieces of work for you to complete.

You will also see tabs for spellings and times tables which we also need you to work on.

We will as always, be updating Mathletics and Reading Eggs every week.

Stay safe

Team Year 3

Monday 11th January to Friday 15th January

Good morning and a happy new year to you all.

 

As you are aware, very sadly, we are unable to open school to all children. 

 

We will be putting links on this page for the children, to allow them to continue their learning at home (you guys have become experts at this over the past year).

 

All work will link to the curriculum that we'll be studying, this term, in school.

 

Please continue to log onto Mathletics and Reading Eggs as we'll also update them too.

 

We will post the weekly spellings and would be grateful if someone could test you on a Friday.

 

Don't forget to keep practising your times tables!

 

Missing you lots and cannot wait for us all to be back working together again.

We have been exploring the texture and look of various rocks. We are beginning to recognise if a rock is igneous, sedimentary or metamorphic.

This week we are looking at reading and showing the time.

We have made our own clocks and are using them to make a given time.

Today we have been transferring our maths skills, from the classroom, to the Computer Suite.

We have taken the data from class and created our own bar graphs.

 I would just like to say a huge thank you to both adults and children for the enthusiasm and support of home learning. It is always lovely to receive work that the children have done at home. 

I thought that you should know that more than half of the children scored 100% in their spellings this week. Please check out our 100% board in the class window to see if your child was one of them.

This week's spellings are:

kneel

This week we are moving on from pictograms and working on creating and interpreting bar charts. 
As you can see, we have some real budding artists in the making. We have been experimenting with pastels to create self portraits.

In maths this week we are looking at statistics. We began by collecting various data and recording it in a pictogram.

We now know the most popular eye colour, pet, crisp flavour, colour and football team of all the children in year 3. I am pleased to say that most of year 3 support Arsenal!! (What a great year 3 they are.)

Children need to secure their 3,4 and 8 times tables whilst in year 3. But mums and dads, don't let them stop there! We already have some superstars in multiplication.

Don't forget to work on the inverse too!!

5 multiplied by 3 = 15

3 lots of 5 = 15

15 divided by 3 = 5

15 divided by 5 = 3

Below is a link to a useful website to make learning them fun.

Useful vocabulary: gatherer, hunter, cave, spear, bow and arrow, tools and stone.

Continuing on with our Science this half term, the children have been investigating forces.

As part of their work, they have been testing out various materials to see if they can be moved by a magnetic force or if they need contact force.

We also looked at magnets repelling and attracting.

How quickly time passes. We are already at the end of the second week!


This week the children have carried out an experiment to see which surfaces have high friction and which surfaces have low friction.
