Year Three Activities

Monday, 6th April 2020 –

Hi, all children and parents of Year 3.   

Here are some more activities for you to complete.

Maths 

Complete the questions found on the sheet on unit and non-unit fractions. Before you start to answer the questions take time to explain to an adult the definition of a unit fraction and a non-unit fraction.

You can either print the sheets or just write the answers into your books.

Adults: The answers can be found here – https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/homelearning/year-3/Y3-Spring-Block-5-ANS1-Unit-and-non-unit-fractions-2019.pdf

English 

Look at the picture and then read the story starter below. Use this to help you create a piece of writing. Remember to spend one day planning your writing pieces and then write the next day.

Most visitors are a little shocked (to put it mildly) when they arrive at Animal Town. Despite the fact that the name of the town gives a slight indication to passers-by that the inhabitants of the town are ‘not normal’, it’s as if people don’t believe things until they see them with their own eyes!

Once you get used to being in Animal Town – or so they say – seeing an orangutan behind a desk in a sheriff’s office and upholding the law to an impeccably high standard becomes relatively ‘normal’…

Imagine you are a visitor in Animal Town. Try to describe your experience.

Alternatively, you could be one of the residents…

Geography

Imagine you are living in an earthquake zone. Create an emergency plan for if an earthquake hit.

You might think about:

  • Safe places to go if an earthquake hits.
    • How you will contact family and friends.
    • What emergency supplies you will need.
    • Where you will store your emergency supplies.
    • What you should do to protect yourself (Drop, cover and hold)

Remember to read regularly to an adult and check Doodle Maths. Don’t forget to share with us how you are getting on with your work at home and ask any questions you might have. 😊

Hello everyone,

If you’re in need of a ‘pick-me-up’ or a break from your English and maths learning, have a look at this wonderful website: https://www.outoftheark.co.uk/ootam-at-home/

It has a really catchy song for every day of the week, with easy to follow lyrics and a downloadable resource/activity to match the theme of the song.

New songs are being added all the time for the next few weeks. I will certainly be joining in at home. Have fun. Make a note of which songs you like the best for when we return to school and we can sing them together.

Take care,

Mrs Russell

Tuesday, 31st March –

Hi, all children and parents of Year 3.   

Here are some more activities for you to enjoy.

Maths 

Spend some time practicing your number bonds over the next few days. Think about which ones you need to practice e.g. number bonds to 10, 20, 100 or 1000.

When practicing your number bonds to 100 and 1000 remember to practice multiples of 10 (60 + 40=100) or 5 and to challenge yourself with more tricky non-multiple combinations (18 + 82 = 100).

Here are some resources to help you or you could make up your own games.

English 

Spend some time reading a book of your choice with a family member.

Ask them to create 5 questions for you using the question stems on the document below. You could answer these questions through conversation or write down the answers in you home learning books.

Science

What’s in your house?

Find 5 items around your house. What are they made from?

Can you describe the properties of the different materials?

As part of our work on Forces we will be looking at magnets and magnetic materials. Can you identify magnetic materials around your home?

Record these in your home learning books. You could write a list, create a mind map or draw pictures.

Remember to read regularly to an adult and check out Doodle Maths. 😊
