ENGLISH

Our school value this term is KINDNESS. This is going to be our focus for writing this week.

Day 1: Can you write a list on 'How to be kind' - Remember to use a new line for each idea. Please focus on spellings. Once you have completed your writing, go back and check for any spellings that you can correct.

 

Day 2: Write an instructions on how to care for an animal. Focus on the kind things you have to do, to ensure that your animal is happy and cared for. This can be your pet from home, a family pet or one that you would love to have.

 

Day 3: Choose one of your examples from Monday on 'How to be kind' and illustrate it. Once you have completed your illustration, label all the things taking place in it. Extension: To write a supporting paragraph (or two?!)

 

Day 4: Instructions: Can you write a step-by-step guide for children starting school in September. I know that you are really kind and very grown up, so can you teach the younger children all of the things they need to know to be a kind, caring and a lovely member of our school?

 

Day 5: You are going to create a Kindness poster about one of your friends. Firstly, draw a portrait of them and then write a few paragraphs stating why they are so kind and all the lovely things they do. Remember to check your punctuation and to include a range of adjectives and conjunctions.

Dear Y3 - Thank you so much for the video. It is incredible, amazing and blew me away! I had a huge smile on my face all the way through. I watched it downstairs and then again with Sally. So many talented children and handstands! There were some children I hadn't seen for so many weeks and I was beaming from ear to ear. Huge thanks to ALL the children and Liz for putting the video together.

A message from Mr French

Still image for this video

I w.c:20.04.2020

Hello Y3. This is Mr French and this lockdown is turning me BONKERS! 

Fortunately, I have a dog to play with and lots of DIY projects to keep me busy.

Remember - if you try and keep busy and stay creative you won't get bored. For example, you could try and juggle bananas whilst saying your 8 x tables backwards! Try it. 

 Please feel free to email me any work or activities that you have been doing.

 

Our topic this term is the Vikings. Can you log onto this link and play this really exciting Viking game - do this before you try any of the other activities. Every time I teach Vikings I show children this BBC game and they love it.

Themes for English

Dear Parents,

I hope you are all well, staying safe and keeping sane! Our English focus after the Easter break will be diary entries and letter writing. Twinkl has some excellent resources on this topic if you need some help and guidance. 

Diaries: this is a perfect opportunity for children to keep a daily diary. The impact of this virus is changing the world in so many ways and there is plenty to write about. Children should keep a daily diary (even if it’s just the date and a couple of lines). In the future, these diaries will be little time capsules into the past!

Letters: our other focus in English is letter writing. Again, this is the perfect time to write a letter to a family member, loved one or friend. Encourage children to write about what they have been doing (writing a diary!), how they are feeling and what they look forward to doing when this madness ends. Perhaps they can keep a list of who they wrote to, when they wrote and who they got a reply from. 

Encourage them to use their best handwriting for the diaries and letters. If you can take photos and send me any examples I’ll be most grateful. If you want me to showcase them on this webpage please let me know.

Take care and love to the wonderful children in Year 3.

Mr French

Diary Entry

Diary Entry 1

In the event that school is closed we have attached a number of different activities for the children to complete at home. Please see the resources that I have included below. 

 

There are also a number of useful websites listed under Parents- Websites to support home learning. Some companies including Twinkl, White Rose Hub and Classroom Secrets have currently made their websites free to the public. These websites have many resources that are used to support the children with their learning in school. 

 

During any period of school closure, please continue to read with your child daily. They will be sent home with 3 reading books but please share other reading materials you may have at home with them.

The timetable below can be used as a rough guide for your home tuition. Each slot is about an hour.
