Times Tables

https://play.ttrockstars.com/  Remember that user names and passwords are in the front of Home/School diaries.

Last week we set the challenge of trying to complete at least 5 minutes each day.  Use Soundcheck, Garage or both!   We’ve been pleased to see who has been logging on and some of you have even been on today!

There are also lots of fun Times Tables activities on Twinkl – remember that in Year 3 your focus tables will be 3x, 4x and 8x but it would also be useful to keep working on your 2x, 5x and 10x too.

 

 

English

These suggested activities are linked to our English and Topic work about Pompeii.

 

Monday

We are going to have a go at making a tourist information booklet for Pompeii later this week. To help us get ready for that have a think about Belper and why people come to visit.

Have a look a this website about Belper https://www.travelaboutbritain.com/derbyshire/belper.php

Now make a mindmap of all the attractions Belper has to offer e.g. North Mill, The River Gardens etc….. 

Here is a mindmap template you can use. 

 

Can you use adjectives to describe any of them or write sentences using fronted adverbials to describe where they are?

Here's an Adjective (and Adverbs, Nouns and Verbs) word mat and a poster of examples of different fronted adverbials that may be useful.  

 

 

Tuesday

Look at the tourist information website about Belper again. https://www.travelaboutbritain.com/derbyshire/belper.php

 How many words can you find in the text that will persuade people to visit e.g. Belper is an attractive riverside market town.

Make a list of as many persuasive words as you can.

Choose one Belper’s most famous attractions and write a short description of it that might persuade someone to visit.

 

Wednesday

Now think about Pompeii today. Click on this link to go on a virtual tour around Pompeii as it is today. Make a list of all the main attractions you can see on the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nG7IFu9TFo

Can you describe any of them using exciting vocabulary e.g.  The narrow, ancient streets of Pompeii, the huge amphitheatre has huge statues and columns.

 

Thursday

Have a go at making a tourist information leaflet for Pompeii. You could fold a piece of paper into 3 to make a leaflet or alternatively create a double page spread in your workbook.

 

Here is a template for a leaflet that may help.

Click here to look at a checklist for writing your information leaflet. Can you include all of the features in your report?  

 

Friday

Spend some time illustrating your leaflet.  Try to make it colourful and eye-catching so that people would want to read it. You could also add extra information such as a map, contact details or website information.

 

Spellings

Continue to practise the Year 3/4 spellings if you want something extra to do. Use the strategies we use in school to learn you learn them eg. quickwrite, rainbow, pyramid, draw around the word, look, say, cover, write, check. 

Here is the link to the spellings.

 

 

Reading

ANY reading is useful but you may want to do some more structured reading activities too:

 

We suggest the following from Animals and Living Things section of the Twinkl Reading Pack:

Amazing Facts About the Human Body

Emma’s Puppy Problem

Great Galapagos

Incredible Invertebrates!

 

You might also like to read the Garden Birds text

 

 

Topic - Roman Britain   Science - Animals, including humans

Activity One – Topic Focus – Roman God or Goddess

Make a drawing of a Roman God or Goddess.  Write a factfile of information to go with it.  OR design your own Roman God or Goddess.  Decide what they are the God or Goddess of, what their powers are and what their weapons are.

Here is a useful presentation about Roman Gods and Goddesses and a design template you may like to use.

 

 

Activity Two – Topic Focus – Roman vocabulary:

Create a word search or crossword puzzle containing some of the key Roman vocabulary you have been using in Topic.  Ask a member of your household to try and solve it.

You might find this template useful.  

 

Activity Three – Science Focus:

Watch the videos ‘What does your skeleton do?’ and ‘How do your muscles work?’ and answer the questions.  Can you find out any new facts that you could add to your activity from last week?   (BBC Bitesize has lots of other interesting topics on that you might want to look at too).

Here is a fact file template

 

 

Easter Activities

Easter egg mindfulness colouring  

Easter story 

Easter story comic strip 

Make an Easter basket  

Easter dot-to- dot 

Easter themed Maths activity booklet 

2D shape chick activity

 

Journal or sketchbook ideas

If you are keeping a journal or sketchbook you might like to:

  • Draw 3 animals wearing clothes!
  • Draw around your hand and then make it look like something other than a hand drawing
  • Draw a mug with someone or something peeking out of the top
  • Make up some underwater creatures

Sunday 29th March 2020

Good evening to you all,

We hope you are continuing to keep well and safe at home.  It has been a strange week as we all start to adapt to different routines and all being at home together. We are glad that the weather has been so good so we have been doing lots of running and playing in the garden and walks in the field.  We’ve spotted the buzzard again but it’s not been in the garden – we’re probably being too noisy! There are lots of plants starting to wake up in the garden and we spotted blossom in the hedgerow. We have been doing PE with Joe every morning.  This is a great way to start the day, even if it makes your muscles ache, and the whole family has been joining in!  We have also enjoyed listening to the David Walliams’ stories each day, as this gives us a break from some school learning activities. The Draw with Rob sessions have been lots of fun too.  Here are some of our drawings:

Mrs Z-B

 

Picture 1

Mrs Deegan says:

Hello Everyone!!!

I hope you’ve been enjoying the sunshine that we’ve had this week and that you’ve been able to go outside for some walks in the fresh air with your families. I’ve been busy tidying my house up and helping my children do some of their school work but have managed to go on some walks with Benji too. He’s been enjoying running after the ball in the field near to our house…..and getting totally covered in mud! He definitely needed a bath! We even managed to do some litter picking whilst out and about too!!!!! Here is Benji in the bath….look at the colour of the water!!!!!!!  Now clean with Harry!

Wednesday 25th March 2020

Good morning Stunning Starfish

Wow - what a great PE with Joe Wicks session today!  Lots of different exercises to help us to keep fit. Don't worry if you can't join in live at 9am as the videos are saved so you can do the exercises at any time.

 

Steve Backshall Live this morning was really interesting with so many questions that were linked to our Science work.  We're hoping that he will be able to do some more of these sessions once he has improved his video quality and we will let you know about these when the information is available.  He mentioned the Scouts Great Indoors activities so the link is here:  Scout Great Indoors  

 

We have updated all your Times Tables Rockstars target tables and these are now set for the next two weeks.  Well done to those of you who have been logging in - we can see how well you have been doing.   Our challenge is for you all to try and complete at least 5 minutes a day. Use Garage or Soundcheck or both!

 

We're looking forward to listening to the next David Walliams story at 11am.

 

 

Tuesday 24th March 2020

Good morning to you all,

We hope you are all well and keeping safe at home.  Have you been joining in with PE with Joe Wicks?  What a brilliant way to start the day! 

 

Here are a few additional weblinks for you all:

 

The World of David Walliams Elevenses

At 11am David Walliams will be reading a story a day from The World's Worst Children!

 

Draw with Rob

Rob Biddulph, an author and illustrator, is doing draw along videos on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 10am.  He was the official World Book Day Illustrator for 2019 and 2020.  You may recognize some of his drawings.

 

Steve Backshall is now doing his Live at 9:30am on Wednesday 25th March, so you can do PE with Joe first!  This will be on various social media platforms and YouTube.  Once we have a YouTube link we will add it here.  ** Update Tuesday afternoon - this link is now ready.  We're looking forward to watching this.  Perhaps there will be some information linked to our science work on skeletons?  **

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday 22nd March 2020

To all the lovely children in Stunning Starfish,

Firstly, we are so proud of you for being so fantastic this week.  You have shown how wonderfully caring and kind you are to others. You have laughed, danced, sang, been creative and shared happy times with your friends.  Even if you have been a bit worried or confused about what is happening in the world around us, you have shown how well you share your thoughts and feelings through talking and listening.  You are all superstars.

 

To the parents of the Stunning Starfish, thank you for your support this week.  Just a friendly smile and kind words have made such a difference and are much appreciated.

Do not worry about having lots of different resources at home – some paper and pencils/pens will be fine for most things - but try to find a calm space that your child can work in.  Make sure they take regular breaks and don’t worry about working to strict times.  This is a new situation for us all and it will take a little while to work out what works best for your child in terms of time and the order of activities if you are planning on creating a little routine.

 

Remember that anything that you are able to do with your children, whether it is following some suggested activities from us at school, playing outside, cooking, watching a film, drawing or making, reading a book or magazine, building a den, playing with LEGO etc is all learning. 

 

We will add to the resources being made available here on a regular basis.

 

We hope you have had a lovely weekend and have managed to get outside in the sunshine.  Mrs Deegan has been busy in her garden and has been taking her puppy Benji out for some lovely walks.  Mrs Z-B has also been busy gardening and playing in the garden with her boys.

 

Take care, stay at home and we hope to see you all back at school as soon as possible.

Mrs Z-B and Mrs Deegan

 

 

General Resources

There are many companies offering free access to their resources during school closures.  Some of these may be American companies so may use alternative spellings for some words, e.g. color and favorite.  It will obviously be important to remember to stay safe online – perhaps ask the children to share their E-safety knowledge with you.  Childline has great tips about staying safe online.

 

For any subjects and any ages, Twinkl, an online resource platform are also offering free access to parents at this time.  Here you will be able to find links to PowerPoints and worksheets.  You will also find parent guides on what your child learns in each year group.

Use the code UKTWINKLHELPS or CVDTWINKLHELPS

White Rose Maths have prepared a series of maths lessons for each year group, and will be adding more over the next few weeks. Each lesson comes with a short video that shows simply and clearly how you can help your child to complete the activity successfully. The children will already be familiar with the format of the activity sheets as we often use these as part of our maths lessons in school.  We have attached the activity sheet link for each day.  For the video part please use this link:

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

 

If you would like an activity a day then follow the following order:

Day One – Unit and non-unit fractions  

Day Two – Making the whole 

Day Three – Tenths

Day Five – Tenths as decimals 

 

Twinkl also has a Year 3 Fractions Learn from Home pack.

 

 

Times Tables

https://play.ttrockstars.com/ User names and passwords are in the front of Home/School diaries.

Log onto Times Tables Rockstars as often as you can.  You can choose to do one, two or three minute Garage challenges, where we can set the tables for you, or choose Soundcheck to work on your speed. We will be able to check how you have been doing and set different tables depending on your progress.

There are also lots of fun Times Tables activities on Twinkl – remember that in Year 3 your focus tables will be 3x, 4x and 8x but it would also be useful to keep working on your 2x, 5x and 10x too.

English

These suggested activities follow on from the work we have been doing in class.

 

Monday

Watch this video clip of someone reading the book we have been reading in class “Escape from Pompeii. It will help remind you of the story. 

Now imagine you are a child in Pompeii on the day that Vesuvius is erupting.

Draw as many pictures as you can to show what you do on this day eg. playing knucklebone, watching actors at the theatre, collecting bread from the bakery etc….to create a mindmap.

Here is a mind map template you can download.

 

Tuesday

Choose 4 or 5 things from your mindmap and draw a comic strip or storymap to show what happened to you during the day. Put them in order to show what happened during the day.

Try to make your comic strip tell a story – remember Vesuvius is erupting – how will you escape?

 

Here is a comic strip template you could download.  

 

Wednesday

Make a list of time adverbials eg. Early in the morning……,   After that…….,  After a few minutes……. How many can you think of?

Now have a go at writing some sentences starting with your time adverbials. For example:

 Early in the morning, I went to the bakery to collect some bread for my family.

After that, I went to find my friend Tranio to a see what he was doing,

Can you write 5 sentences?

Remember to use commas after your time adverbial and try to use interesting vocabulary.

Here are examples of different fronted adverbials.

 

Thursday

Have a go at writing a diary entry about the day Vesuvius erupted. Start your diary with Dear Diary……

Try to include these things:

Time adverbials,

Emotion words to describe how you are feeling

Correct punctuation

Exciting and interesting vocabulary.

 

Here are some diary entry writing frames you could download.  

 

Friday

Spend some time illustrating your diary entry. You could try and make your diary entry look old or add some drawings to show what was happening.

 

Spellings

You can also practise the Year 3/4 spellings if you want something extra to do. Use the spelling strategies we have been practising in school to learn you learn them eg. quickwrite, rainbow, pyramid, draw around the word, look, say, cover, write, check. 

 

Here is the link to the Year 3 and 4 Common Exceptions spellings.

 

 

Reading

ANY reading is useful but you may want to do some more structured reading activities too:

 

We suggest the following from The Romans section of the Twinkl Reading Pack:

Caesar’s Calendar Conundrum

Defeat or Retreat

Live Like An Emperor

The Captivating Colosseum

 

You could also read ‘The Romans’ at this link.

 

Topic (Roman Britain) and Science (Animals, including humans)

Activity One – Topic Focus - Boudicca:

What can you find out about Boudicca?  Who was she?  When was she alive?  Where was she from?  What did she do? Why is she an important person in British history?  Create a fact file or make a wanted poster!

Boudicca Information powerpoint  

Boudicca Wanted poster template 

 

Activity Two – Topic Focus – Roman mosaics:

Click on the link to have a look at some Roman mosaics and how they were made.

 

Have a go at creating your own mosaic using the blank mosaic sheets on this link or have a go at making your own using little squares of coloured paper.

 

Activity Three – Science Focus:

Create fact files or a quiz all about the human skeleton and bones.

 

https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/ From the publishers Dorling Kindersley.  Look at the ‘History’ section for Romans and the ‘Human Body’ section for the skeletons and bones!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/shows/operation-ouch  The children have really enjoyed watching some videos during our Science and Topic work this term.  Can you find out anything about the human skeleton and bones?

 

Other interesting websites for Topic and Science include:

https://britishmuseum.withgoogle.com/ A virtual tour of exhibits from the British Museum.  What Roman artefacts can you find?

https://www.birminghammuseums.org.uk/schools/bmag-for-kids Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery.  There is a great section on Roman Britain.

https://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/games-and-apps Games and Apps from the Science Museum London.

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/year-3-school-closure-home-learning-resource-pack-t-e-2549912 This pack has a huge range of different activities you may wish to use at any time.  The children may have covered some of these topics in class already but there may be new activities they would like to try.

 

Steve Backshall is also going to set up a YouTube channel for wildlife, biology, conservation, geography, exploration etc that will hopefully be running from Wednesday 25th March.  Once we have more details of this we will add a link for you.  In the meantime you can always watch some Deadly 60 on iPlayer! https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/shows/deadly-60

 

Physical Activity Ideas

Jo Wicks (The Body Coach) is delivering a home work out at 9am, Monday to Friday live on YouTube.

 

https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html

 

If it is safe to be outside then please enjoy your gardens.  Can you plant any seeds?  Go on a garden adventure looking for signs of spring. Do you know all the names of the plants and trees in your garden?  Can you draw any of the flowers that are starting to open?  Use your Forest School skills to make a magic wand or talking stick.  Watch the birds and sketch them.  Build a den.

Music

On Friday afternoon the Stunning Starfish sang the song 'Believe' by Lin Marsh.  Take a look at our Music page to watch the official video of this song.

Keep listening to music.  Sing along where you can!  

You can also find the link for David Walliams Music Podcast by Classic FM – a marvellous musical journey of discovery, meeting some of the most famous names from the history of music.

 

Other ideas

 BBC Dance Mat Typing.  A fun way to learn touch typing if you have access to a computer keyboard and sound – this is a really useful skill to work on. 

 

Daily journal or scrap book

The children may enjoy making a daily journal or scrap book.  They could use a notebook or have a go at making their own book – they could tie or staple pieces of paper together.  Draw, doodle, colour, write, collect, collage, stick. We will post regular ideas for things the children could include in their journals – it will be something they can look back on in time and share with future generations.

What have you done today?  What have you read?  What have you eaten?  What have you watched?  What have you played?  How have you felt?  What is the weather like outside?  What music have you listened to?  What exercise have you done today?

26.9.19 European Day of Languages. Today we found out all about different European languages. In our class, Mrs Z-B taught us some Polish phrases and we tasted Polish food - we weren't sure about some of the flavours! We listened to the legend, 'The Dragon of Krakow', and created artwork inspired by it. We also tried Wycinanki, the art of paper cutting.

'Meet the Teacher' Thursday 5th September 2019

Thank you to all the parents/carers who were able to come to the 'Meet the Teacher' session today.  We hope you found it useful, and we look forward to working together over the coming year.  If you were unable to make it, your child will be bringing home the 'Welcome Letter' and other useful information tomorrow, and we have also attached a copy of the letter below.  Log in details for Times Tables Rockstars will also be sent home tomorrow.

Please do ask if you have any questions.

 

Stunning Starfish Welcome Letter Autumn 1 2019

We hope you have all had a wonderful holiday and are looking forward to starting the new school year in the Stunning Starfish. We can't wait to hear about what you have got up to over the holidays, and the things you are looking forward to doing and learning in Year 3.

 

This term we will have PE on Monday and Wednesday, starting on the first day back!  Please make sure you bring your named PE kit to school with you.  It would also be really useful to have a named water bottle too.

 

We hope you enjoy the last few days of the holidays and look forward to seeing you on Wednesday.

Mrs Z-B & Mrs Deegan
