Year 3 2019 - 2020
Welcome to the Year 3 class page!
COVID-19 – Home Learning
- The website White Rose Maths has developed an online Home Learning Live hub - with a daily online lesson every day for Y3 (and all year groups). Each lesson has a clear teaching video, practice activity and answers to check your work. As always, remember to start with what you know and show your working out.
Try their problem of the day: https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/classroom-resources/problems/
- Use your MyMaths and Abacus logins to practice all of the maths we have covered this year so far.
- Keep up your Maths Fluency training on the TT:Rockstars and Numbots websites/apps. Have you got what it takes to become a Rock Hero? How do you rate against all the other students at Clifford on the Leaderboard? Can you top the charts on the Numbot challenge mode stats?
https://play.ttrockstars.com/ (If you would like a .pdf containing ALL paper daily practice challenges, just email.)
- 15-20 minutes daily practice here can make a MASSIVE difference to future progress in maths. You won't regret it!
The website Pobble365 provides an exciting daily writing challenge. Each day there is a well written extract, Story Starter, Key Questions (comprehension), Picture Perfect, Sentence Challenge and Sick Sentence activities to help us develop our skills as writers. Remember to use and build a full range of sentence types – just like you all do so well in class.
Here are some that you might enjoy:
April 28th: A Giant's Game. The Story Starter includes some fantastic vocabulary! Firstly, can you find the definition of any unfamiliar words? You may be able to use these words in other sentences within your writing.
August 2nd: The Magic Globe
January 22nd: A Dangerous Pet. This picture reminds me of the work we did around the book The Boy who Grew Dragons by Andy Shepherd.
- You may want to keep a diary. This could include the things that you have done each day, what you have enjoyed, how you might have helped your special grown-ups at home and how you are feeling.
- A child in Y3 should be reading for 45 minutes every day - which can be split into shorter sessions of course. Read exciting chapter books! Use your BugClub logins to access a full range of writing types. Read alone, read aloud, talk and write about what you are reading, form opinions, make predictions and write reviews.
- Oxford Owl: https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/books/free-ebooks/
All the eBooks are free to use, but you will need to register or log in to read your book. Please note, the eBooks are not optimised for mobile phones and are best viewed on a computer, laptop or tablet.
Miss Stent's favourite Year 3 chapter books:
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis
Stig of the Dump by Clive King (we were up to Chapter 6 in class)
Evie and the Animals by Matt Haig
The Boy who Grew Dragons, The Boy who Lived with Dragons and The Boy who Flew with Dragons by Andy Shepherd
I am currently reading: Varjak Paw by SF Said
- The brilliant, award winning spelling and grammar app/website 'Sir Linkalot' is free (using the username and login FREE.) It uses clever tricks, links and patterns to teach spelling through short smart videos. Watch, practice on paper, complete the tests and really build your confidence with spelling.
HISTORY, GEOGRAPHY, SCIENCE, MUSIC, ART, D&T, PE
- BBC Bitesize Daily https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons
BBC Bitesize have produced programmes for homeschooling in Maths and English for every year group, as well as regular lessons in Science, History, Geography and more.
- Science Fun At Home: https://pstt.org.uk/resources/curriculum-materials/Science-Fun-at-Home
They will send out a new Science Fun at Home challenge every Wednesday. You can also receive these activities direct to your inbox by signing up to their mailing list.
- Sheffield's own artist Pete McKee is uploading some great, weekly drawing cartoon lesson tutorials through his YouTube channel. Have a look!
- Joe Wicks is streaming live PE sessions through his YouTube channel:
- If you have a skipping rope at home, you could practise some of the skipping techniques that we have been looking at in school. How many skips can you do in two minutes?
- This website from the Scouts is full of fun, cross curricular learning challenges to complete at home.
- Simple, easy and fun craft ideas to try.
If you need help with logins, need extra resources, any help or just to send me some brilliant work, contact me directly through email@example.com.
Take care, stay safe and hope to see you all soon.
Children will receive homework and spellings each Wednesday and this should be handed in the following Monday. The expectation in Year 3 is that all children will organise their homework themselves, including handing their books in. On Tuesday mornings, children will have their spelling test. In Year 3, this test will involve the children putting the word into context, practising their handwriting and recapping relevant punctuation.
It is still hugely important that you continue to read with your child regularly throughout the week. We also encourage your child to be reading a book of their choice alongside their school reading book. Their school reading book should be brought into school and changed at least once a week. This helps to ensure they are on the appropriate book band and monitors the frequency of reading at home. Please remind your child to take their reading book out of their bag for it to be changed.
By the end of Year 3, children should know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. Please continue to practise these times tables at home.
We look forward to building on the great work of EYFS and KS1. Over the year, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Longden-Stent and the Year 3 team.
