Year 3 Work – week commencing Monday 18th May 2020

 

Hello Year 3! How’s your week been? We LOVED receiving your shadow puppet videos and we’ve put some up on our Science page for you to watch - please continue to send them in! It sounds like you’ve learnt lots about shadows and light from last week’s topic. We’ve also updated the 'Wow work' section with new pictures from the last fortnight. Hope you enjoy spotting your work and your friends!

 

Here is this week’s edition of First News. Maybe you could share what news you’ve read with your family. 

 

Mr Williams has been setting some toilet roll PE challenges this week! Click here for more details.

Elm, have you seen the exciting Fishkeeper Fry update?

 

Please continue to use our email address yearthree@stokenchurchprimary.bucks.sch.uk to keep in touch with any questions, comments or photos. If you find any links don’t work or are incorrect, please let us know so we can amend asap!

 

This week’s topic is Geography – the UK. In Year 1, you learnt about the four different countries that made up the UK. How much can you remember before we start the topic? This week we are allocating specific time for French / PSHE – kindness to yourself on Tuesday afternoon. Did you enjoy Mrs Harris reading The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl?

 

As before, please find the timetable below with the information and links you need. If there are any technical problems, please do not worry but let us know and we'll do our best to help.

 

Have a good week,

We have uploaded more squared paper here if you need to replenish your supplies. If you cannot print, please do not worry; any paper is fine! The majority of answers can be found in the Answers section. For each task, we expect you must do the first challenge, should also do the second challenge and could do the third challenge.

 If you need a few minutes to refocus, why not join in with our 'Stokie Second' - a recording of this is on the Home Learning page.

 

Monday:

  • Maths – Using known facts to multiply a multiple of 10. Look at this Powerpoint and then complete the activity at your level (1 is easiest, 3 is hardest). Activity 1, Activity 2, Activity 3. Once you have completed this, please practise on TT Rockstars as times table practice will be very useful for this week’s learning. (Have you seen the update to find out who are top Rockstars were last week? Scroll down for more details)

  • English - Spellings  Unit 26 – silent w (New summer spellings can be found here)

  • Music - Garsington opera #GOMondayMotivation - live 15 min workshop each Monday morning at 10am for families to join in with

  • Topic – Light 4 – If you haven’t already, watch Mrs Curzon reading a book about Light. Look at this PowerPoint to learn about sun safety. (Interactive elements of the Powerpoint work better on computers/laptops than phones and tablets) Activity: Your task is to design a pair of sunglasses or a hat that will protect someone's eyes from the harmful effects of the sun. Tell your customers why they need to buy your sunglasses or hat. Explain about the effects of the sun, and how your sunglasses or hat can help protect against them.

 

Tuesday:

  • Maths – Multiplication: introducing the expanded written method. Look at this Powerpoint and practise the examples with a grown up (interactive elements of the Powerpoint work better on computers/laptops than phones and tablets); let them check you have understood the method before completing this activity. Extension: Write step by step instructions for someone else to complete the expanded written method.

 

Wednesday:

  • Maths – Multiplication: the expanded written method part 2. Watch this video to remind you of the method taught yesterday then complete this activity. Extension: Find out about the grid method – how does it work? Does it give you the same answers as the expanded method? Which method do you prefer and why?

  • English - Grammar – Unit 20 Sentences - Speech marks. Watch this short video before you complete the activity.

  • Topic – Light 5 – Shadows

    1. Watch this video to find out how shadows are made. It’s important to understand that light can only travel in a straight line and a shadow is formed when something blocks light.

    2. Look at these photos. Discuss what has created each of these shadows and which direction is the sun coming from in each picture?

    3. Either using the sun, or a torch, can you see what happens to a shadow as the object moves closer or further away from the light source? Draw diagrams to show the shadow at the beginning, what it looked like when you moved the object closer to the light and what it looked like when you moved it further away. Did any of your results surprise you?

    4. Finally, enjoy this video from Attraction who won Britain’s Got Talent in 2013. Having just celebrated VE Day, what British links can you spot? How did the dancers manage to create different shapes with different sizes?

 

Thursday:

  • Maths – Solving multiplication word problems. Watch this video to remind you of tips for solving word problems. Then complete this activity. If you are in Mrs Whelan’s / Mrs Curzon’s group, you could complete this activity instead for an extra challenge.

  • English – Linking to our ‘light’ work, you are going to plan and write a scene from a fiction book which you will then perform tomorrow with shadow puppets! It could be a scene from a Roald Dahl book or a favourite story book. It could be a new scene, for example, what happens after the story ends? Think carefully about which characters will be in your scene (we suggest no more than 2) and the dialogue (speech) that will happen between characters. Write the scene like a narrative (story), rather than a script and don’t forget to use speech marks correctly as you practised in yesterday’s grammar lesson.

  • Topic – Light 6 – Shadow Puppets – Now that you’ve planned your shadow puppet story in English, scroll down to watch Mrs Harris’ video explaining how to make shadow puppets. There are also useful tips here. Make your own shadow puppets. Choose paper or card that is thick enough to not be floppy. What could you use to strengthen your puppet if it is floppy? Set up your ‘theatre’ with a light and rehearse. How will your characters move? How will they talk to each other? Will you need to change the size of your shadows at any point? Think about where the audience will need to sit. Get ready for the performance tomorrow!

 

Friday:

  • Maths – Mathletics – please complete all set activities

  • English – It’s showtime! Have a final rehearsal before you perform your shadow puppet play to your family. You could even make tickets and serve snacks! Make sure you perform with a clear voice and don’t speak too quickly. Think about the expression/voices you will use when your different characters speak. We would love you to email videos of your play which we can put on the website!

  • Spelling test – how did you get on?

  • Family time – what are you planning on doing together this afternoon?

Year 3 Work – week commencing Monday 4th May 2020

 

Hello Year 3! Firstly, a massive thank you to all of you who managed to contribute to the Toilet Roll Challenge video that you made. It was such a lovely surprise and it made us cry! Here it is!

 

Can you believe it’s May already? Here’s hoping for lots of lovely sunshine! Did you enjoy the special video we made for you? We’ve now updated the 'Wow work' section with photos from the last fortnight – can you spot yourself or your work? How did you get on with your baking at home – there are some great examples here. We hope you enjoyed last week’s Mindfulness challenges.

 

We’ve now managed to speak to everyone in Year 3 and enjoyed catching up with you all. As we said last week, we know it is a difficult time for everybody and we know it is much harder doing home-learning than school-learning so all we ask is that you just do your best.  Well done Year 3! Helpful advice for parents can be found at Starline.

 

Last week we added in new links for Computing, Reading and French among others – they can still all be found in the Home Learning Links section. In addition, you can read First News, the newspaper written for kids for free. 

 

Please continue to use our email address yearthree@stokenchurchprimary.bucks.sch.uk to keep in touch with any questions, comments or photos. If you find any links don’t work or are incorrect, please let us know so we can amend asap!

  

This week our topic is Science based – Light! All of the Topic work is outlined below. This week we are allocating specific time for French / Computing on one of the afternoons. In addition, as we celebrate VE day on Friday, we have given some optional different ideas for you to complete then.

   

Happy Birthday to Piper, Sophie and Flynn J whose birthdays are all this week!

 

As before, please find the timetable below with the information and links you need. If there are any technical problems, please do not worry but let us know and we'll do our best to help.

Year 3 Work – week commencing Monday 27th April 2020

 

Good morning Year 3! How was your weekend? The Stokenchurch staff have been busy making a special video for you. What do you think? Thanks to those who’ve sent us photos of what you’ve been doing. At the end of the week, we will update the 'Wow work' section with photos from the last fortnight. Did you enjoy last week’s Art topic? What have you learnt to do that you couldn’t do before?

 

We’ve really enjoyed making phone calls to you last week. If we haven’t rung you yet, we will this week so look out for a phone call from a withheld number. It’s been lovely to hear your voices and hear how you are getting on at home. This is a difficult time for everybody and we know it is much harder doing home-learning than school-learning so all we ask is that you just do your best. Any learning you manage to get done is brilliant!

 

As some of you will have finished the reading books you took home before the school closure, Miss Churn has put together some links for accessing online reading material/audiobooks. We hope you find this useful. Try and read every day!

 

Please continue to use our email address yearthree@stokenchurchprimary.bucks.sch.uk to keep in touch with any questions, comments or photos. If you find any links don’t work or are incorrect, please let us know so we can amend asap!

 

We are starting the week off with a bake off! It was supposed to be our school DT Bake Off day so let’s do it at home instead. Send us a photo of you enjoying your finished product!

 

This week our topic is PSHE (Personal Social Health Education). You can find out more about what PSHE is here. We are setting a 14 day challenge where we’d like you to complete at least one of the activities each day. You can choose which ones you do and in which order you’d like to do them in. Our mental health is important, particularly at the moment so we hope these activities are helpful. Most of them have printable resources but you could just do it on paper if you cannot print.

 

In addition, Madame Reynard has provided some more French ideas and Mrs Kippin has also set some Computing challenges which you can do from home using websites like Scratch. Why not have a go to see what you can create?

  

Happy Birthday to Alfie whose birthday is this week!

 

As before, find the timetable below with the information and links you need. If there are any technical problems, please do not worry but let us know and we'll do our best to help.

 

Have a good week,

Once finished, you need to edit your work (like we do at school with our purple polishing pencil). Check: Does it makes sense? Carefully read it through to check for missing words or bits that don't sound right. Is there any missing punctuation? Can you improve any words e.g. staggered rather than walked? Can you add any adjectives e.g. the tree -> the mysterious, overhanging tree?
