Year 3 – Tuesday 7th April

Good Morning Year 3

Hello Year 3,

I hope you are all well and staying safe in this beautiful sunshine. Last week, I was in school helping the Year R’s which was something very different and exciting for me! It did feel very strange being in school without all of you there smiling back at me, but it just makes me look forward to seeing you all again even more. I have loved seeing your brilliant pieces of work that you have sent in through email and also some of the extra things you have been doing as well. I can’t wait to start seeing your Easter crafts and Lego competition entries through the week – do send them in to year3@stmarksce.org. 

I hope you have been finding ways to keep busy and enjoy this lovely, extra time we get to spend with our families. If you are a little bit stuck with things to do for fun, I have created a quiz for you to do. You can choose to be a team with your family and all work together or battle each other to see who can win Miss Barnett’s ultimate Disney Challenge! Why don’t you try and see how many of our learning behaviours you can use along the way?

Enjoy this time together with your families and I can’t wait to see you all soon.

Have a fantastic week and keep being superstars!
Miss Barnett

Year 3 – Monday 6th April – Easter Holiday

Happy Easter Holidays Year 3

Thank you for making all your teachers smile on Friday when we got to see you in our zoom meeting. We will arrange another date after the Easter break. We hope you had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine in you gardens or homes. 

As the next two weeks are officially the Easter Holidays we hope that you are ready for a bit of a break from school work and can enjoy having a holiday at home.  As Mr Applegate said in his video newsletter last week, we won’t be publishing formal learning tasks over the Easter holidays. You can still access TTRock Stars and other links you can find here.

You are then free to choose when and how to try the activities out; you might want to do one a day or perhaps just pick one or two that you like the look of.  Please remember these are only suggestions and you might have other wonderful ideas or just need a little downtime.  There are so many wonderful resources out there that you might not have got round to trying if you have been following our activity schedule closely, so please take the time to try something new. 

We would like to take this opportunity to say how much we appreciate your patience and kind thoughts and also the time and hard work you have been putting in to continuing our work in our absence. We wish you and your families our very best wishes for a safe and Happy Easter together. 

Best wishes,

From the Year 3 Team

Ongoing Activities

Maths

Today, we are continuing our work on Fractions using the White Rose Maths Lessons. This will involve watching the video clip and completing the worksheet.  There is an answer sheet to check your work.

Please complete Week 1, Lesson 5 – Tenths as Decimals – This lesson builds on your knowledge of tenths from yesterday.  You will look at another way to represent tenths – decimals!  This is the first time you will have come across this concept so please watch the clip carefully and play it back as many times as you need.

You can find the video and resources for today’s lesson here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/  Don’t forget to click on  Week 1, Lesson 5 –tenths as decimals – Watch the clip and follow the instructions.  You will need a pen or pencil and paper to hand.

Resources you will need: 

Things to remember

  • Tenths means a whole has been split into ten equal parts.
  • 10/10 = 1
  • 9/10, 8/10, 7/10, 6/10, 5/10, 4/10, 3/10, 2/10, 1/10 are all less than 1.

RE

As we get closer to Easter, in school we would normally be learning about the Christian view of Easter. This activity aims to help you and your child to explore some of main aspects of the festival of Easter and some of the key themes and traditions involved. You may find this BBC bitesize link really handy for this task.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/ztkxpv4/articles/z4t6rj6

Art

Now we have finished our Hodgeheg book – today’s art is linked to drawing your own hedgehog. Why don’t you make it into a card? Maybe for someone in the NHS, the dusbin collectors, a shop worker or maybe a delivery person. Send us your finished pictures.

Year 3 – Thursday 2nd April

Good Morning Year 3

Thank you again for sharing all your fabulous work with us yesterday. Here are some of the super road safety posters you made linked to ‘The Hodgeheg’. 

  



EXCITING NEWS:
Yesterday, hopefully your grown up’s received an email about a class video chat. We are very excited about this as we are missing you all. These have been set up for Friday – Times and details have been emailed. If you haven’t received these please email us at year3@stmarksce.org.uk and we will get them out to you. We would love to see as many of you as we possibly can in these meetings.  If we have time we will try and do a true or false quiz based on our ‘What’s inside’, so it might be an idea to look over your knowledge organiser again before. For this you will need a piece of paper with true written on one side and false written on the other – Please make sure you use a pen to write it on so we can see it clearly. 

Copy of knowledege organiser can be found here.

Ongoing Daily Activities

Maths

Today, we are continuing our work on Fractions using the White Rose Maths Lessons. This will involve watching the video clip and completing the worksheet.  There is an answer sheet to check your work.

Please complete Week 1, Lesson 4 – Counting in Tenths – This lesson builds on your knowledge of tenths from yesterday.  You will count in tenths using ten frames and numberlines and move onto looking at tenths which are greater than the whole.

You can find the video and resources for today’s lesson here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/  Don’t forget to click on week 1, lesson 4 – counting in tenths – Watch the clip and follow the instructions.

Things to remember

  • Tenths means a whole has been split into ten equal parts.
  • Any fraction is bigger than the whole (1) if the numerator (the top number) is greater than the denominator (the bottom number) e.g. 11/10
  • For question 10 you will need to remember the numerator is the number at the top (and this will be an odd number greater than 10) and the denominator is the number at the bottom (and this will be 10)

Resources you will need: 

We understand that some children are unable to print the worksheets but please don’t worry. Try and copy out and answer as many questions as you can into your homework book or another book. 

RE

Parents:  As we get closer to Easter, in school we would normally be learning about the Christian view of Easter. These activities aim to help you and your child to explore the concept of sacrifice. At the moment, this should be a good starting point for conversation as both you and your child are giving up lots of the normal activities in everyday life, time with friends, sporting activities etc. It would be good to spend some time discussing why we are doing this. Is it just for ourselves or others too?  How does it relate to what Christians believe that Jesus did?

Resources you will need:

English

So today we are going to be finishing our book ‘The Hodgeheg’. You can read this your self or listen to Mrs Alsey reading it below. Then you are going to complete a book review. 

Resources you will need:
