Hello everyone! This is the final week of term before the Summer holidays, so it is your last week in Year 3! It is very sad that we have not all been in school for all this time and I have missed you all so much, but I have loved seeing your videos, pictures and work on Tapestry. I am incredibly proud of you all. Well done  😃💕

I am so looking forward to seeing you all again in September, when you will be Year 4s! We will have some time together when you come back, so we will finally be able to do all those raffles!!! 😃😃😃

Before then, I am excited to say you are all invited to a Year 3 ZOOM Meeting next Thursday at 11am. It would be lovely if you could all join us. Login details will be sent out via Tapestry early next week. At the meeting, you may wish to say or show a message to all your friends, show us something you have done during Lockdown, tell us something funny that has happened or just smile and wave. It’s up to you! 😊😊😊

For the final week, we have arranged lots of fun activities for each day. You may wish to choose from our ideas, rearrange everything to suit you, or create your own special days. The aim is to reward you all for your hard work and to recognize that you have missed out on all the summer fun we normally have, such as sports day, summer fair and the disco.

Along with each day’s activities, you can do any of the following fun activities if you wish. All this week’s activities are great for any time during the holidays and they will stay on the website, along with all the previous weeks’ work until September.

From now until the end of term we will be concentrating on the Year 3/4 Statutory Spelling Words. Each morning this week I would like you to complete one of the word mats from this pack:

Year 3 And 4 Statutory Spelling Words Activity Mat Pack 10

 

Maths: Digital Time – Telling the time to 5 minutes.

For today’s work you need a clock face with movable hands. If you do not have one, you can make one using the following template. It is best printed off and stuck on card to give it more strength.

Analogue Clock Face Template

Last week you learnt how to tell the time on an analogue clock. Today you are going to look at digital time and the equivalent analogue time. Work slowly and carefully through the following PowerPoint with an adult if you can, up to and including Slide 28. This is the slide before the one with the title: The School Day. Use your clock to help you answer the questions on the screen. There are some quite tricky parts, so if you do not understand something, stop, go back and have another go, discussing anything you don’t understand with your adult. Do not worry if you don’t get to slide 28 today. There will be more time to continue this tomorrow.

Choose six sea creatures that you particularly like or find interesting, and present information about them in a mini booklet. The booklet is made from one piece of paper.

PSHE: Belonging

Feeling that we ‘belong’ is very important to all of us. It makes us feel valued and secure. For example, we all belong to Buckstones Primary School. Even if you are not in the school building, you are all still a vitally important part of that group and you are thought about and valued as much as ever. You really ‘belong’.

Other groups you may belong to are family groups, clubs such as Brownies, sports clubs, religious groups, friendship groups etc…

There are two activities for you to choose from this afternoon (or you could do both!):

Create a poster showing all the different groups that you belong to.

Activity Belonging Poster

Create your own club, using the worksheet below.

English: Poetry – My Shadow

Here is a well-known poem called My Shadow, which was written by Robert Louis Stevenson (the same person who wrote Treasure Island!). Read it out loud several times and discuss it with an adult.  It is quite an old poem (written in 1885), so some of the language may seem a little unfamiliar to you.

The poem is about a child who is fascinated by their own shadow. Once you are familiar with the poem, answer the 1 or 2 star comprehension questions. You should be able to use your scientific knowledge about shadows to help with some of these. Some of the questions ask about ‘rhyming couplets’. These are simply two lines that go together and rhyme. Once you have finished, check your answers with the relevant answer sheet.

RE: Christian Places of Worship

Read the following PowerPoint to find out more about Christian churches.

One of the slides shows stained glass windows. After you have finished reading, have some fun creating your own stained glass window design.

You can create it on the template or make your own.

Draw your design today and then tomorrow afternoon you can colour it using any media you wish, such as pencil crayon, felt tip, paint or coloured card. Think carefully about your design before you start and take as much care as you can when drawing.

Mary And Sarah Poem

2) Read the poem again with your adult, but this time one of you should say all the lines about Mary, and the other one say all the lines about Sarah. Both of you should say the last verse together. Practise this a few times until you can say the poem fluently between you, adding expression where you think it is needed.

3) Next, underline all the smooth things that Mary likes in one colour, and all the rough things that Sarah likes in another colour. How many different things has the writer included in the poem? If you can’t print the poem, write the items in your book as two lists, under the headings ‘Smooth’ and ‘Rough’.

Tomorrow you will be looking at another Opposites poem and later in the week you will be collecting ideas for an Opposites poem of your own.

English: Opposites Poems

The following poem is similar to Mary and Sarah, but this one it is called Mike and Dave. Mike likes wet things and Dave likes dry things.

1) In this poem, the last word of each verse is missing, so your first task is to work out what the missing words could be. Think about which lines rhyme, then decide what wet or dry things could fit.

Mike And Dave Poem

2) Once you have decided what the missing words could be, add them to the poem and practise reading the poem with rhythm and expression. You could share the poem with a partner, like you did yesterday.

3) Tomorrow, I shall give you a writing frame to help you write an opposites poem of your own. Today, I would like you to think of two opposites, e.g. black/white; big/small; hot/cold etc…, then use the sheet below, or your book, to list as many things as you can for each of your opposites. The more things you can think of, the easier it will be to write the poem.

You will need the list of opposites you collected yesterday and the poem Mike and Dave.

The poetry planning sheet follows exactly the layout of Mike and Dave. You need to choose two names for your poem, then use your opposites ideas to fit the writing frame. Your poem does NOT need to rhyme.

You will need a mixture of single words and longer phrases. Keep looking back at Mike and Dave to help you think of and write similar ideas, line by line. Remember this is your first draft, so you can change your mind, rub out and rewrite as often as you like. Once you have completed it, read it out loud to check that you are happy with it. Punctuate it, following the punctuation in Mike and Dave. Tomorrow, you can write your final version.

Topic: The Story of Treasure Island

For the next two afternoons, I would like you to listen to the story of Treasure Island, a famous pirate adventure story written in 1881 by Robert Louis Stevenson. It is a BBC animation for children, split into ten short video episodes. Today, read episodes 1-5 and tomorrow read episodes 6-10. At the end of each episode, discuss the characters and the plot of the story with an adult.  A good idea is to act out small sections, so that you begin to understand who everyone in the story is and what exactly is going on. Later this week, you will be writing your own pirate adventure story, so you can use ideas from this story to help. Most importantly, just enjoy it!

English: Plan a Pirate Adventure Story.

Today you are going to plan your own pirate adventure story, using the Pirate Treasure Map that you made last week, so make sure you have it with you while you are planning. You can use lots of ideas from the story of Treasure Island for your characters and for the plot, together with ideas of your own. You may use the story opener below to help you get going if you wish, and there is a pirate adventure story mat with pictures and vocabulary.

The main idea should be that someone is looking for treasure on your island and pirates are involved. Remember it is an exciting adventure, so there should be problems for your characters to overcome.

Use the planning sheet to jot down the basic outline of your story, or if you prefer you may draw a storyboard. Talk it through with an adult so you are clear who your characters are and what the plot is going to be. Remember to include the pirate character you described last week!

Science: Looking for patterns in how shadows change.

Watch the following PowerPoint, which explains some of the things you found out last week when you experimented with changing the size, shape and direction of shadows.

How Do Shadows Change PowerPoint 1

Now watch the following animation from the Children’s University of Manchester (Flash Player is required for this). This explains what happens to the shadow of a stick during the course of the day as the sun seems to move across the sky (the sun actually stays still; it is the earth that moves). It is interactive, so follow the instructions to measure the length of the shadow at different times in the day and enter the data in the chart onscreen. Do you notice any patterns? At the end of the animation, explain to an adult what you have found out.

https://www.childrensuniversity.manchester.ac.uk/learning-activities/science/the-earth-and-beyond/shadows/

If you cannot access the animation, have a look at this instead:

Shadows And The Sun

Now apply your knowledge by completing this task:

Light And Shadow Activity Sheet

Cut the pictures out, stick them on a piece of paper or in your book in time order, then draw the shadow of each tree. The shadow may need to extend outside the boxes.

(On a sunny day, perhaps you could have a go at doing this experiment outside, using a stick.)

This is a matching activity. You need to read clues very carefully to match up pirate pictures with the name and explanation of their role on board ship.

The first thing you need to do is read the information at the bottom of the ‘Who’s Who’ sheet under the heading ‘How to recognise the crew members’, then match up the job of each pirate by looking very closely at the pictures on the picture sheet. Write the job of each pirate under the dotted lines. Next, put the picture card number in the correct boxes on the ‘Who’s Who’ sheet and read the information to find out more about each pirate job. You may colour the pictures in if you wish.

Science: How Shadows Can Change.

Watch the following video to remind you how shadows are formed, then I would like you to experiment with a torch and a simple object, such as a pencil, scissors or a shape made from Lego or other construction equipment, to see if you can make the shadow change its size, its direction and its shape.  Record what you do in pictures and writing on a sheet like the one below. Think carefully about the position of the torch in relation to the object and the shadow. What did you do to make the shadow change?

Tomorrow, you are going to be writing a description of a vicious and evil pirate (either from a picture or from your own imagination)! Today, I would like you to spend some time looking at the following Pirate Descriptosaurus. It is full of wonderful vocabulary and phrases to help you write an amazing description. Take lots of time today to read and discuss all the vocabulary with an adult if you can. Then, choose words and phrases from each section of the descriptosaurus that you think will help you write a great description of the worst pirate you could imagine, and put them in the boxes on the Planning Sheet. Add some of your own if you wish. I have added a few pirate pictures for you to look at to help you choose the best vocabulary.

English: Write a Pirate Description.

Time to unleash your pirate on the world! Choose one of the pirate pictures from yesterday’s work or use your own idea of a pirate to write an amazing description, using the vocabulary you collected yesterday. Think about someone reading your description. Try to make them feel terrified of your pirate by choosing and using the most powerful words and phrases you can to write descriptive sentences. It’s all about the impact on the reader!

Start your sentences in different ways; don’t start every sentence with ‘He’. Instead, try using:

  • prepositions, such as: underneath, on top of, behind, beside, in front of.
  • -ing words and phrases, such as: hanging from his beard…, cascading from his head…, glinting menacingly in the sun…

You may write your description in your book or on one of the following pirate themed pages:

I would love to read your pirate descriptions, so please send them in on Tapestry!

 

Maths: Treasure Island Grid Reference Task

Look carefully at the Treasure Island map. For question 1, draw each symbol in the correct position on the map, using the grid references. For question 2, find the treasure by following the directions very carefully. The start position is the middle of Dead Man’s Beach, which has the grid reference I7. It is important to do each part of this slowly and carefully because if you go wrong, you will have to go back to the start!

Topic: Plan a Treasure Island

For the next two afternoons, I would like you to plan and draw a detailed Treasure Island Map that will form the setting of a Pirate Adventure Story next week. Today, I would like you to look at examples of treasure maps very, very carefully and use the features you can see to begin to draw your own Treasure Island on squared paper. Use as many details as you can from the examples. Really take your time so you produce a beautiful finished product. Make sure you have a compass somewhere on your map, as well as a title. The more interesting you make your map, the easier your story planning will be. If you like, before you start to draw, you may wish to make your map look old and brown by dabbing the paper with a cold tea bag.

You can use string, wool or chalk (but only if mums and dads say it’s OK!) to show the shape of the shadows. Try making some shadows of yourself in different shapes. Draw the shadows you see on a piece of paper, or take a photo of them to put on the computer. If it is not sunny, try making shadows with a torch in a darkened room. Notice each time, where the shadow is in relation to the object and the light source.

IMPORTANT: NEVER look directly at a light source, especially the sun. It can damage your eyes.

Now use the Internet, Google Earth or an atlas to complete the Mountain Fact Cards below. You will recognize some of the mountains on these cards from your previous work on the United Kingdom, but some of them have got very strange names indeed! If you prefer to make your own cards, or do it on a computer that’s fine. There is a blank one at the end for you to complete with a mountain of your choice. You could cut the cards out and make them into a pack or display them on a poster.

English: Authors – Design a Book Cover

Following on from your work on favourite authors last week, today I would like you to design a new front cover for one of your favourite books, or for a new book by your favourite author. Have a close look at some of the covers on the books you have at home to see what you need to include. Remember, a new book has to stand out from the crowd, so think about how you could do that before you start. You may want to plan it out roughly before starting the final version.

You can use the template below or design your own, or  do it on the computer.  Remember, you can send your finished designs in on Tapestry if you wish.

RE: Why are the Ten Commandments important to Jewish people?

Following on from last week’s lesson about the Jewish people’s escape from Egypt, this is the story of how Moses received the Ten Commandments from God.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK_FWURMnhU

Once you have listened to the story, have a look at the pictures below. Some of them have the Commandments in simpler language so they are easier to understand. Discuss these with a parent if you can, so that you are sure what each one means.

Ten Commandments Posters

Your task is to design a Ten Commandments poster for children. You can use the ideas from these sheets or come up with your own.  If you wish, you could invent your own Ten Commandments for everybody to follow in order to lead a good life!

Home Learning 11th – 15th May 2020. Summer Term, Wk 4.

Monday 11th May, 2020.

Spellings for this week:

Homophones

to/two/too
so/sew/sow
by/buy/bye
rain/reign/rein
there/their/they’re

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different spellings and different meanings. It is very important to use the correct spelling when you are writing so that the reader is not confused. Use a dictionary to find the meaning of each homophone. Learning the meaning as well as the spelling is very important this week.

 

Maths: Fractions of Objects

For this lesson you will need to use small objects to ‘act out’ the calculations. You could use counters, buttons, beads, shells or any other small objects you have at home.

Follow the PowerPoint below slowly and carefully, using your small objects to copy the actions on each slide. There are some fraction sharing grids to print off or you could just draw some on a piece of paper.  You do not need to write anything in your book today. The important thing is that you understand the link between calculating fractions of numbers and division.  The colouring slide at the end is tomorrow’s work!

Art: Drawing Fossils

This afternoon, I would like you to have a go at sketching one or more fossils in as much detail as you can. Watch the first 8-10 minutes of the video below. It shows you exactly how to draw an ammonite. You could then watch it again, pausing the video every few seconds to copy what the artist is doing. You do not need to draw the whole thing; just the shell part is sufficient. Once you have done that, you might want to have a go at drawing some of your own fossils or the ones on the pictures below. Remember, look very closely all the time and sketch lightly with a pencil so you can rub out easily if you need to.

Maths: Division with Remainders (revision)

Choose the 1, 2 or 3 star question sheets. Read the problems carefully and answer the questions. Act out the problems or draw pictures if it helps.

Use your times tables to work out the answer, e.g. How many 5s in 19? Say the 5 times table to get as close to 19 as you can without going over it (“One 5 is 5, two 5s are 10, 3 fives are 15″), then calculate the remainder by counting from 15 up to 19 (4). So the answer is 3 remainder 4 (3 with 4 left over).

I have put some information below, but you may wish to do your own research too, using the internet (remember all you have been taught about safe internet use – ask parents first), or other books you may have in your house.  Remember, today is all about reading. You can collect information next week.
