Friday 3rd April
Good morning Year 3.
Hope you enjoyed getting creative in the kitchen yesterday. Did you make crispy cakes, pancakes or something different?
Also, well done for designing your healthy meals too! I'm looking forward to reading your suggestions for my healthy meal. What did I do well with? What did I need to include?
To continue this theme, for your english task today I'd like you to complete one of the following 2dos: Design a leaflet showing how to make the perfect pancake or How to make Crispy Cakes text.
STEPS TO SUCCESS
Choose an appropriate title.
Begin with an introduction to what your making.
Order events in time order.
Remember to use time conjunctions.
Use a good choice of 'bossy' verbs.
Try to persuade the reader to make your choice, with some good word choices. Make your food sound delicious!
Finally, don't forget your punctuation!
If you get stuck, look back at the sequencing activity from yesterday.this will help you with your order and word choices.
Have a go at the spelling quiz again for your spelling group. This is set on purple mash as a 2do. Have you improved your score fron the start of the week?
Have a go at completing the time games on:
OCTAGONS, HEXAGONS AND PENTAGONS -
24 hour time
Adding time word problems
RECTANGLES AND SQUARES
telling the time activity
Or you can have a go at all 3!
Your afternoon / weekend task is to watch the Palm Sunday story on the following link :
Then complete the Palm Sunday 2do, for / on Monday.
It is Palm Sunday this weekend. A very special time in the catholic calendar. Can you tell me why? What do we remember on Palm Sunday? Your 'talk homework' this weekend is to speak to other family members about Palm Sunday. If you have a bible at home, see if you can look up Palm Sunday in the New Testament. Read it together and say a little prayer to God, thanking him for sending Jesus to earth to save us from our sins. Pray to God asking him to look after us all at this difficult time.
Have a safe and blessed weekend.
Thursday 2nd April
Good morning Year 3.
Please start your day with our school prayer. Try to remember all 4 prayers today and pray the Our Father at bed time too 🙏
Spend 10 minutes exploring spelling shed.
Can you beat your score from the start of the week?
Pancake / Crispy cake sequencing 2do activity on purple mash. Chose either the Pancake or Crispy cake activity or you can do both if you like!
Yesterday I said your task would be to get creative in the kitchen. If you can, you could follow up this activity with actually making one of the above. If you haven't got these ingredients, don't worry. Help mum / dad to make a sandwich / lunch. Think about the sequence of events and the words you could use to order events in time order.
Tomorrow we will be writing about this.
Well done for all your hard work on time this week. Today we will re-focus on our timetables, as we usually have our speed times table test on a Thursday in school.
Write today's date in your blue book. Fill in the time you have started the activity on the anologue clock in your book. Write a sentence to say whether it is am or pm.
Now, practise your current speed times tables and fact families. E.g. If you are on x3 practise multiplication and division facts for all your x3's.
Finally, spend 15 minutes on ttrockstars. Remember the battle is boys vs girls.. let's see who's going to win! 🤷♂️🤷♀️
Afternoon task -
Can you design a healthy meal?
I've set this as a 2do, so you can get creative on the computer!
REMEMBER - you should have all the food groups. Think creatively how you could achieve this and don't forget your 5 a day fruit / veg.
You could perhaps then continue with your creativity and show your parents your healthy meal design. Maybe suggest you have a go at helping to prepare tea tonight?
I've been getting creative too!
Can you tell me what food groups I have in my healthy meal? What would you suggest to complete my meal so that I have all the food groups needed?
Write your suggestions in your blue book. Also tell me about your healthy meal. List the foods under the following groups:
Fruit and vegetables

Can you start your day with some Gymnastics, as we would in school?
Take off your shoes, find a safe space and start with some stretches.
Make yourself as small as a seed, then as tall as a tree - stretching out, using all your muscles.
Can you touch your toes? Then reach for the sky?
After your stretches see if you can remember the game we played in school. Play with a member of your family, explain the rules to your parents so that you can have a little go together.

I've set a quiz for my group and a quiz for Miss Hopkinson's group. You can complete both if you like! Tomorrow I will set more tasks from these words so make sure you practise today! 😁
Make sure you also read your book for 15 minutes today. You should hopefully be close to finishing one of your reading books by now. If not, catch up with your reading today so that one of your books are finished.
Once again, I've set you a 2do today. This time it's to know the difference between AM and PM.
Read the clues carefully and have a go at the quiz! Good luck!
I'm looking forward to seeing your scores! 😁

Friday 27th March
Good morning Year 3.
Friday would usually be celebration assembly, so today my certificate goes to... ALL of YOU!! 😊
Well done Year 3! I'm very proud of the effort you are putting into your work! Keep it up!
Let's get a bit of normality and start with a spelling test! Have one last look at your spellings for this week. I hope you have managed to 'look, cover, say, write as often as you can this week.
Now, can you ask someone in your house to test you on 6 of them. 2 from each spelling rule.
Record your test and your score under today's date in your blue book.
Next task - what did you find out from your Continents of the world comprehension yesterday? Choose one continent to write about. Think about the big write we did on Tabago, can you present your information in a similar way? Include information about climate, population and location. *remember lots of your information will be in your comprehension text* #magpie
Maths task: firstly, can you start with 15 minutes on ttrockstars? Compete in the battle boys v's girls.
Next, look at the work you have done this week on multiplication. Using the 100 square you have been working from, choose one more timetable to colour in the multiples of. E.g. squares may choose x10, Hexagons may choose x 6.
When you have completed this, look at your 100 square and write some true or false statements to test your family members on.
E.g. 60 is a multiple of 6 and 5. True or false?
Make sure you can prove your answers by evidencing with the correct number sentences.
E.g. 60 is a multiple of 6 and 5
This is true because 6×10=60 and 5 x 12=60
Have a go at 5 of these, not forgetting your reasoning!
Have a fun morning!
Good afternoon Year 3. Hope you are all well.
Your task this afternoon is to get active!
If you can, go into your back garden and bounce a ball, skip, jog on the spot or if your garden is big enough get creative and make up a 'sports day'type relay. If not, look back at Tuesday's link and have a go at today's PE lesson with Joe.
Take care, God bless and don't forget your daily prayers.

Yesterday we started with PE (as we have PE on a Tuesday in school) so today, we will start with Science (as we usually have our Science lesson on a Wednesday in school) 😁
So, our first task today is to log onto purple mash and complete the science 2dos. Remember your purple mash log in information is stuck into your reading record book.
The first task is to label parts of the human body, completing the game. Then, see what you can remember about the human skeleton. Can you create an information text about the skeleton? There are some key vocabulary words on there to help you. The final, fun task, is to draw yourself! 🙋♂️🙋♀️
*If you can't get onto purple mash today have a go at the tasks described above in your blue writing book.
Continue the work your started yesterday and Monday, on multiplication facts, sequences and using the greater than and less than symbols (<>), this time with your 3 times tables.
On the same 100 square as yesterday, can you colour in all the answers to your 3 times tables. Which numbers are in both the 3 and 5 times?
Write today's date on the next clean page in your recording book. Record the time you started this activity on the analogue clock and write a sentence to tell me this using digital time.
Now, can you write the fact families for the numbers that are in both the 3 and 5 times tables. E.g. 3x5=15 5×3=15 15/3=5 15/5=3
After this, can you write out a sequence of multiples of 3 from 3-100? How many are there?
Finally, using the greater than and less than symbols (<>), write 5 facts from today's work. E.g. 30< 36.
Good morning again Year 3, hope your PE lesson went well. Here's a little creative task for the afternoon: OBSERVATIONAL DRAWING
Sit outside in your garden, what do u see? Draw any plants etc, showing me the beauty of our gardens. Using your pencils carefully, draw the landscape too. Shade any shadows you see.
If you haven't got any plants in your garden, use your imagination to add the pictures below to your landscape drawing.
Don't forget to add colour too! Using pencil crayons, felt tips or paint (if you have these at home). Don't worry if not, add the detail with your pencil.
Enjoy the sunshine as you complete this task and stay safe!
