Weekly Maths Tasks

Weekly Reading Tasks (Complete 1 per day)

Essential - Complete these everyday

  • Complete daily maths challenges, located under ‘Remote Learning’ on the school website.

 

Additional:

  • Play on Hit the Button -  Focus on times tables, division facts and squared numbers.
  • Practice writing out your times tables on a piece of paper – rehearse them afterwards.  
  • Working on Times Table Rockstars. If your child works on Numbots in school they can access this with the same login – this log on is located inside the front cover of your Remote Learning book.
  • Log onto Education City and complete tasks set by your teacher – you will also find this log on inside the front cover of your Remote Learning book.
  • Read your home reading book or a book that you have borrowed from the library.
  • Following this, summarise the events from the book. You could bullet point what happened, create a comic strip or present the information in your own creative way.
  • Whilst you are doing this, note down any unfamiliar words from the chapter that you have read. Explore the meanings of these words by using a dictionary or ask an adult to help you with any tricky words.
  •  Read something around the house that isn’t a book- you can then complete your reading diary following this.
  • Write a book review about the book/books you have read.
  • Write a new and exciting blurb for your book.

 

Weekly Spelling Tasks (Complete 1 per day)

Weekly Writing Tasks (Complete 1 per day)

  • Practise the Year 3 Common Exception Words – See list on the remote learning section of the website.
  • Choose 5 Common Exception words. Write them into a sentence including capital letters and full stops.
  • Create a vocabulary bank about ‘Urban Pioneers’.
  • Make your own vocabulary quiz using 5 topic words and challenge someone else in your house. Remember: for each word you will need to include one correct answer and at least one incorrect answer for somebody to choose from.
  • Proofread your writing from the day. You can use a dictionary to check the spelling of any words that you found challenging. This will also help you to check that the meaning of the word is suitable for the sentence.

 

 

 

 

  • Do you know what an explanation text is? Today you will be identifying key features of Explanation texts, use the colour key to find the key features on the example text under Week 14 tab for English.
  • As we are focusing on explanation texts, today you need to research and find out how chocolate is made. Use some of the resources provided on the English Week 14 tab and when you use the internet to research it yourself, make sure you ask an adult first. Don’t forget to make notes, you can use the mind map template to help you with your notes.
  • Planning day! Now that you have made notes on how chocolate is made, you need to use your notes to plan your explanation text. Use the template provided and checklist to help you.
  • Look over your planning template from yesterday. Today you will be turning your notes into full sentences which make sense. Don’t forget to use paragraphs to organise your writing. Use the checklist to ensure you have included everything. You can write it by hand in your neatest handwriting or type it up using a computer.
  • Finish writing up your explanation text, remember to check over your work to make sure it makes sense. Can you add some illustrations or diagrams?
  • Remember to ask an adult to send us a copy of your completed explanation text to year3@bostonstmarys.co.uk We can’t wait to read them and share them on our class twitter page.

 

 

 

Learning Project - To be completed throughout the week

Here is an overview of tasks we’d like the Year 3 children to be completing at home over the next six weeks.

Scrumdiddlyumptious!

We’re going to enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, sampling fantastic fruits and tantalising treats!

 

Art, Design and Technology:

  • This is a perfect opportunity to taste new foods and have a go at following recipes. Why not bake healthy muffins or prepare a slow cooker stew with an adult?
  • You could also sample adventurous foods from around the world.
  • You could read the packaging of foods in your fridge to find out where they have come from.
  • Do some observational drawings of fruit and vegetables. Look closely and add in detail using some of the sketching skills we’ve learnt about in school.
  • Use play-doh, clay, salt dough or papier mâché to make your own pieces of fruit or veg.
  • Design and make packaging for a fantastical fruit or silly sweet! Gather your ideas from real life packaging samples collected from home. Plan your designs thinking about text type, colours and materials you might use.

 

Music:

  • Listen to and sing along to the song Food, Glorious Food from Oliver! Can you learn part or whole of the song and perform this confidently to someone at home?
  • Explore sounds that can be made by shaking, tapping, blowing and beating different foods and food packaging. Can you make a shaker and create different rhythms and keep a pulse?

 

Spanish:

Listen to the following fruit song/videos  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__8RhpqIWkU or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ob4r1bDj2MA to learn the Spanish names for lots of different fruits. Once you have listened to them a few times, have a go at labelling fruits in Spanish on the sheet. Can you find the different Spanish fruits in the word search?

Next can you write your own shopping list and say it aloud in Spanish? Here’s a good website to help you with this challenge: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z4mvr82/resources/1

 

PE

As often as possible, join in with Joe Wicks 30 minute daily exercise videos on Youtube at 9am. Refuel with a healthy snack and a drink of water.

 

History

Find out more about the man James Lind. Make a PowerPoint about or create a timeline of his lifetime.

 

Science

  • Find out about the different food groups and sort a range of foods from your own fridge and cupboards into these food groups with an adult’s permission.
  • Create a plan for a nutritional packed lunch box or picnic.
  • With an adult, do a ‘blind feel’ of a selection of food inside a bag. Describe what you can feel. Can you guess what the item is?
  • Explore a range of foods using touch, smell and taste. Sort and classify items according to your own criteria and explain your ideas.
  • Investigate how food can be altered with a grown up. E.g. Water into ice. Bread into toast. Melted chocolate into solid chocolate. Which of these are reversible processes and which are irreversible?

 

Geography:

Research the journey taken by a banana from its country of origin to the fruit bowl. There are some good Fairtrade resources available online which could help you with this. Present your findings in an interesting way of your choice.
