Year 3

Week beginning 1st June 2020

Welcome back!

Hi everyone. I hope you have a restful and enjoyable break. As these uncertain times continue, we will carry on providing home learning activities on the website for those children who are not in school. Hopefully, one day soon, we will see all the children in school but in the meantime we are thankful and appreciate all the efforts of parents and carers to educate their children at home. We fully understand that working with your children while, in many cases, trying to work yourselves is difficult. We are always here to help and can be contacted through the class email address year3@howebridge.wigan.sch.uk or by phone. So, keep up your efforts! We are extremely proud of the children and have really enjoyed seeing their work and hearing your comments about their achievements.  

The maths learning this week is from the White Rose website https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ 

The accompanying worksheets are below with the answers. 

Arithmetic Tests

Each Arithmetic test has 20 questions. I would suggest completing 10 questions per day (15 minutes) but if you would prefer to do more that is fine. 

Afternoon learning - w.b. 1.6.20

The British Coastline

This week's afternoon learning links closely with our English. Children are encouraged to use their afternoon topic time to research their chosen British coastline (see Thursday/ Friday English lesson) and if they wish to complete some of the activities below. 

Home Learning 18.5.20 – 22.5.20

Thank you for you continued support to your child's learning at home. Here are activities for you to complete this week. If you have your work pack at home and would prefer to do that, that is absolutely fine. You don't need to do everything! There will be no home learning set next week as it is half term, but if you need anything at all please contact me on the class email year3@howebridge.wigan.sch.uk. I hope you all have a lovely half term and a well deserved break! 

Please encourage your child to complete the reflection of my year throughout the week. 

If you can send the completed document back to year3@howebridge.wigan.sch.uk 

Thank you!
 

Maths

You will need to access this website https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

for the videos that show how to solve the answers. They are under Summer Term Week 5 (w/c 18th May). 

Arithmetic and Maths Revision 

This week, there is a choice of completing arithmetic tests or having a go at the Year 3 maths revision. 

 

With the Arithmetic tests, I would suggest completing one test over two days as they are longer than the half tests previously completed. 

 

If your child would rather complete the Year 3 maths revision booklet, I would suggest 2 pages per day. 

 

Afternoon Learning w.b. 18.5.20

 

This week's afternoon learning (topic/ project work) is linked to this week's English research task (Thursday lesson). 

 

Research a topic which is interesting to you, e.g. space, sports, a particular country, an animal, topic from the news etc.

 

Once you have chosen your topic, begin your research. Your research may include the following:

 

Decide on a few key questions which you would like to find out about.
A mind map of your chosen topic.

 

You may also enjoy creating a piece of artwork linked to the topic of your choice. 

 

Finally, write a paragraph on our school blog about your research topic. You may wish to include photographs of your research to share with your friends. 

 

Have fun with your project and let’s see how many different topics we can come up with as a class!

Home Learning 11.5.20 – 15.5.20

Monday 30th March 2020 – Friday 3rd April 2020

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well J

Can I just say a massive thank you for sharing some of the amazing learning that has been taking place at home! Mum’s, Dad’s and family members, I would like to say a massive thank you for supporting your children’s education especially during this uncertain time.

Moving forward, can we continue with the following…

  • Class Email - Any work or tasks completed can you let me know via class email year3@howebridge.wigan.sch.uk . You may wish to send images of the work or just a brief comment of what tasks your child has completed that day. Once I have read and replied to the emails, I will send Dojo’s to your child for completing the tasks.
  • Year 3 Class Blog – Thank you for the great response we have had to our class blog. It has been amazing to see and hear the amazing things you have been up to each day. Please encourage your child to add to the blog as often as possible. You are also able to comment on your friends photographs or posts by clicking on the heading of their post and scrolling down to add comment. Let’s keep in touch as much as possible J
  • Class Dojo’s – Children will be rewarded with Class Dojo’s when work or tasks have been completed and an email has been sent via the class email year3@howebridge.wigan.sch.uk .

 

Physical Education

Daily PE sessions with Joe Wicks https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1

Enjoy time outdoors safely whether this is in your garden or going for a walk with your family.

 

English

Keep a diary, handwritten or on the class blog of what you have been up to each day. Remember to use correct punctuation and spelling. Ask a grown up to check it before you post your diary entry. Grown ups…encourage your child to proof read their own writing and if they have made errors try not to give them the corrections but encourage them to think about why this isn’t quite right, encouraging them to edit their own work. If your child makes spelling errors, encourage them to write these correctly several times. See if they then can apply the spelling by giving them a sentence to write using the spelling. I am looking forward to hearing from you all J

Hi everyone, 

We are currently waiting for access to our school blog which will make it easier to complete tasks. In the meantime, we thank you for your patience, reassure you to not worry and just do what you can with your child. Encourage your child to access times tables rock stars, read and share stories, write as often as possible e.g. keep a diary, writing stories, practise spellings, handwriting etc. All these things that do not need sheets to be downloaded and filled in but are just as valuable to your child's progress.

I hope this reassures everyone in this difficult time.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Lees and Mrs Pomfret.
