R.E. - Look at the Powerpoint - Read the story of Moses

Adult to say: When something catches on fire, eventually it will be burned up. It’ll turn black, and eventually be just ashes. The strangest thing of all about the bush that Moses saw was that it was not burned up by the flames. Imagine what Moses must have thought!
Soon things got even weirder. Suddenly Moses heard God speaking to him through the flames! God told Moses that he was standing on holy ground so he must remove his shoes. Let’s read from God’s Word to hear what else the Lord said to Moses.
Read Exodus 3:9: “The cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. So now, go, I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.”

Say: God had a big job for Moses to do!

 

Discuss with an adult: If you were Moses, how do you think you would have responded to God?

Good morning Year 3,

I hope you have had a good couple of days. The Guided reading, GPS and P.E. lessons are all on the post I put on Monday.

For Literacy today, I would like you to look at the letter you have written as if you are Gregory. You need to edit your letter. First of all check for basic punctuation; full stops, capital letters and exclamation mark. Can you use a comma after an adverbial opener or before a conjunction in a complex sentence? Next, choose 2 phrases that you can improve. Maybe use an additional adjective, or a more ambitious verb. Finally, copy out your edited letter using your neatest handwriting. You may like to add an appropriate border to decorate your work.

 

Have a lovely day.

Wednesday 13th May

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all well and enjoying some of the tasks you are doing in your home learning.

Today's Literacy involves you writing a character description, using some of the skills you have developed from the GPS work completed in the last 2 weeks.

For Guided Reading you need to re-read 'I was a Rat' and decide which is the best summary of each paragraph.

Make sure you get outside for some fresh air and to practise those ball skills I set on Monday.

Guided Reading Wednesday 13th May

Tuesday 12th May

Good morning Year 3,

I hope you are all ok today.

In both literacy and guided reading today, you will be making sure you understand the meaning of words and phrases. For Literacy, follow the Powerpoint until you get to slide 6. In your book write the words/phrases from the right hand column and then select which picture matches to its meaning. Draw an appropriate picture in your book next to the meaning. An extract from 'I was a rat' by Philip Pullman will be this week's focus for guided reading. Read the text through once, then on the second reading underline/write down any words/phrases you are not sure of. Use a dictionary if you have one at home, or the internet to find the meaning. Once you have done this read the text for a third time to ensure you understand the details of it.

Enjoy your day.

Monday 11th May

Good morning everyone,

 

I hope you had a lovely weekend, enjoying the sunshine on Friday and Saturday.

 

This week for PE I would like you to practise some hand-eye coordination skills. If you have a ball - a tennis ball, a football, ping pong ball - I would like you to practise catching it. Stand outside, throw it to someone, up in the air, or bounce it on the ground. What makes a catch successful? Think about the position of your body, how to hold your hands, what you need to do as the ball approaches. Once you have found some consistency in catching it, can you increase the difficulty? Clap, touch your nose, bend down before you catch. Can you make up a routine? Build it up. Start with 3 straight catches, then add difficulty. How many times can you repeat the activity without dropping the ball?

 

For Literacy, we are going to be looking at the story of Gregory Cool this week. Today you are thinking about holidays or day trips you have been on. See the sheet with today's activity on it.

 

GPS is about Direct Speech. This is to build on the work we did earlier in the year about how to write speech within a narrative.

 

Take care

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all well. Remember to contact the school office via email if there is something we can help you with. Today's Literacy focuses on alphabetical order. Everything is explained on the Powerpoint. Who can do the final challenge?

For Guided Reading I would like you to focus on paragraphs 6 and 7 of 'The Vacuum Cleaner'. There are some questions to make you think about the meaning of the text.

Don't forget to try out your PE warm up with members of your family (See Monday's PE task). Listen to their feedback, do you need to change anything?

Hello Year 3,

I hope you are all ok today. I picked some rhubarb yesterday and this afternoon, providing I can get some flour, intend to bake a rhubarb and custard cakecheeky Have you have managed to do some baking too?

 

Today's Literacy task is to edit your explanation text. You should now have at least 3 paragraphs of writing. Go through each one checking for punctuation, (full stops, capital letters, exclamation and question marks). Then highlight any words that you think can be improved on. If you have a thesaurus at home then practise your skills looking up alternative words. If you don't, use an online one.

 

For Guided Reading you have some questions based on the paragraphs 3 and 4 of The Vacuum Cleaner. You can answer the questions in your book, but remember to write your answers in a full sentence, which includes part of the question.

 

Wishing you a great day.

Monday 4th May

 

Good morning everyone,

I hope you have had a nice weekend. I have been on a bike ride this weekend with my family, as well as a walk where we collected some wild garlic. Make sure you look out for what is growing around you when you are outside. The bluebells seem to be in abundance at the moment and the birdsong can be very loud...especially at 5 o'clock in the morning!

 

Today's Literacy task is to complete the final paragraph of the explanation text. There is also a grammar task (GPS) about prepositions. If you didn't do last week's task, do that before you attempt this one. Choose the most appropriate activity from Classroom Secrets.

 

For P.E. this week I would like you to put together a warm-up/strengthening programme based on the exercises  you selected last week. The whole exercise activity should last about 6-7 minutes, so think how many times/how long each exercise should be repeated. Record your programme in your books. Try it out with members of your family and tweak it if necessary. Remember you need a mix of leg, abdominal (stomach) and arm activities.

 

Have a lovely day.

Hello Year 3,

 

If you haven't already realised, today is the last of the literacy activities for this week. I would like you to write the second paragraph of your explanation text. Look at the short Powerpoint, which explains everything. For Guided Reading there are some more questions about The Vacuum Cleaner. Read the whole text again before answering the questions.

 

Make sure you have written/drawn 3 exercises which work your arm and/or stomach muscles. You should have 6 exercises now, which you will need for next week's P.E. work.

 

If there is anything you have had difficulty with this week, let me, Mrs Greenough or Mrs Mitchell know by emailing the school office. We will help if we can.

 

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Hello everyone,

I hope you got on ok with yesterday's tasks. Please remember to email the school office if there is something we can help with.

For Literacy today you will be writing the first paragraph of an explanation text. Follow the information in the Powerpoint. Use the WAGOLL to guide your writing, just like we do in class.

For Guided Reading, there is a text to read about a vacuum cleaner. You will then need to answer the questions about paragraph 1. I have left the marks for each question on the sheet, so that you have an idea of how much detail you need to include.

Mental Health and Well-being (Education Endowment Foundation)

One of the most important ways to keep mentally healthy is to have routine and structure, and to maintain a healthy sleep pattern. For me this is the hardest thing actually, as I am a natural late-bird. I don't have any young ones in my home (just a 20 year old student), but I know this is where I would have failed when my three boys were younger.

The Education Endowment Foundation (EFF) have produced a series of checklists to help parents and children manage their routines.

I hope you are all keeping safe and well.

Today you have Literacy (Boxing Up) and Grammar (Prepositions). The Literacy task is explained on the Powerpoint and there is a Boxing Up sheet you can print out or you can copy the examples in your book. For Grammar, once you have read the Powerpoint complete the sheet that you would usually do in class. The answer sheet (For your parents!) is at the end of the worksheets.

This week's PE I would like you to take part in two more Joe Wicks sessions. Whilst you are working out, choose 3 exercises that work the arms and/or stomach muscles. Add them to the 3 examples you found from last week. Draw a picture and give each exercise a name.

 

Make sure you get outside and enjoy some fresh air.

Welcome back Year 3. I hope you have had a nice break during the Easter holidays and have managed to enjoy some of the lovely warm days going for a walk with your family.

 

PE

We would like you to take part in Joe Wicks PE this week (It doesn't have to be live, choose any lessons he has done in the last few weeks.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ). As you are doing the exercises think about which muscles you are working. Keep a record of 3 exercises that work your leg muscles, they may be strengthening or stretching your legs.

 

Literacy

You have 2 tasks to complete today. I would recommend that you complete the Grammar task first, as this will help you with the Explanation text task.

Grammar - Look at the Powerpoint about Time and Cause Conjunctions. Work through each slide and be creative with your sentences at the end.

Explanation Text - Read the explanation text on the Powerpoint a couple of times. Tell someone what features you can identify. (Hint: If you have completed the grammar work today, there will be lots of things to discuss.) The last slide asks you to write 3 sentences using 'cause' conjunctions.

Can you believe it, we are half way through the 2nd half term? The children are continuing to impress me with their hard work and attitude to learning. We are so close to achieving the 150 mark on the whole class cylinder, just a few counters away from having 1 hour of playing games on laptops.  

 

We were fortunate to have Miss Surman join us for a one week placement. She enjoyed herself so much, that she will be coming back to join us as a volunteer. A few children were tearful when she left, just shows how much impact you have over a small amount of time. 

 

As Maths leader, I was so impressed with the children's understanding of multiplying numbers using the grid method. I hope you are ready for division next week! 

 

Spelling and arithmetic scores are still a focus. Please spend 15 minutes learning spellings and facts with your children so that they can use and apply their knowledge in every day lessons. 

 

The year 3 production will now take place at Newsome High School, letters with details will be sent home next week. 

 

Enjoy the extra two days and I will see you all on Tuesday.

Well done for remembering to bring in your planners, learning your spellings and arithmetic facts and keeping a log of the books you have been reading at home and at school.

 

So far, I have seen some amazing pieces of ART/DT work for the Roman Holiday Project. Don't worry, you still have three weeks to enter.

Next week, we hope to have our first ICT lesson, where you will receive a username and password and login details for TTRS.

Keep up the hard work year 3!
