Year 3

The suggested timings for the daily work timetable is only meant as a guide.  This is a suggested maximum time you should be expecting your child to undertake the activities we provide.  We are passionate and fully committed in supporting you to provide education for your children whilst they are off school during the current world events, and all of the activities we have provided are suggested. Above all, your child's happiness and well-being is the most important thing.  Use your judgement as a parent to decide what to ask your child to complete each day and if you want to do things in a slightly different way than is suggested - then feel free to get creative with the activities. 

 

During the day, we recommend that you focus on these activities.  We have added some suggested times to give you an idea about how long each activity should take. Teachers will be updating this page daily to support children to continue their learning at home. Further information for each of the daily activities can be found below.

Grammar

 

Earlier in the year, we learnt about prepositions. We discovered that they are particularly vital in instructions.

 

Recap what prepostitions are by watching the BBC Bitesize clip and completing the activities.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/zw38srd

 

Hidden Object

To practise using prepositions of place, hide a small object in your home or garden. Ask a family member to try and find it. Use prepositions as clues to direct them to it.

 

Maths

Fluency

Choose a variety of objects and practise measuring them in centimetres using a ruler.

 

Remember to line up the object to the 0 mark on the ruler.

 

Can you find objects that are _ cm long?

6cm

11cm

19cm

Spellings

Did you work out the spelling rule?

If the word ends in a vowel (a,e,i,o,u) + y, then just add s.
boy - boys, journey - journeys, key - keys, tray - trays, donkey - donkeys... Otherwise we'd have too many vowels and a confusing word (key - keies)!

 

If the word ends in a consonant + y, then 'y' changes to ies
country - countries, baby - babies, body - bodies, memory - memories, sky - skies, variety - varieties, factory - factories...

 

Note that you don't use spelling rules with proper names. Just make sure you use a capital letter.
The Jollys have gone on holiday (Not the Jollies have gone...)
The Parrys are moving house.

Up-level the Sentence

Add and change words to up level the sentence below.

The nice dog wagged its tail.

 

Grammar

Yesterday we recapped prepositions of place. Time yourself to see how many you remember. In three minutes, how many prepositions can you write down?

 

Ask another person to join you for some drawing. Lean your paper on their back and they will draw infront of them.

Don’t tell them what you are both drawing.

Try to use just touch as their clue. Then try another picture using prepositions to help them too. How much does their drawing improve?

Maths

Problem Solving

Create your own metre tape measure using a length of paper, string etc.  

Remember that there are 100 centimetres in 1 metre.

 

How can you make sure your tape measure is 1m long?

How can you use a 30cm ruler to check the length?

Fluency

Once you have made a metre tape measure, use it to measure some objects in your home or garden.

Sort some obejects into two categories, ‘longer than a metre’ and ‘shorter than a metre’. Before you check by measuring an object, make a prediction about which category it will go in.
