Year 3 suggested activities
Welcome everyone to this week’s Year 3 update on the suggested activities. I hope that everyone is keeping well and happy. Please take some time to carefully read through this blog as the suggested activities are a little different this week. If you have any questions or need advice about the activities then please feel free to email at the Year 3 gmail address.
Spellings this week are words with a short /u/ sound spelt with ‘o’. Please see the spelling list attached below and there is a short activity called ‘code word jumble’ to go along with the spelling list for you to have a go at.
For English please find attached a link to Talk 4 Writing units for all year groups in the school. Units are meant to be worked through across the rest of this term, which is the next 4 weeks. We have sent all units so that if your child is finding it too easy or difficult you can have a look at the previous or next year group's unit.
In Maths we are continuing our work on Fractions this week. Some of this has not been covered in class and will be brand new learning for the children. I strongly recommend that you follow the link below which will take you to White Rose Home Learning and click on the Year 3 page. Please then select Summer Term Week 2 (w/c 27th April) where the children will learn about Adding Fractions, Subtracting Fractions and Solving Problems involving fractions. There are video lessons and activities for 5 days. I hope that you will find these resources manageable from home. I have also added some related tasks on Mathletics for the children to have a go at as well if they are able to.
This term Key Stage 2 would have been learning all about the Olympics which were due to be held in Japan this year. We would still like to give you the opportunity to develop your Geography and History skills with a project we are setting for the rest of this term. Over the next four weeks, choose a country anywhere in the world and find out more about it. Your instruction sheet is below for more information. You can choose to present this in any way you want, but please let us know what you have been doing so we can share your learning with others.
These tasks are suggested activities to be completed if you/ and your child are well enough and you want to keep yourself busy. Please get in contact on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. I am looking forward to seeing what you can do!
Take care everyone!
