Year 3 - miss stell

Hello Year 3 and welcome to our Home Learning page! On this page I will post activities, lesson ideas and recommended web pages or apps for you to use to help with your learning.

Online Learning

The children should already have their login details for some fabulous websites to help them practice the basic skills of reading, spelling, times tables and mental calculations. However, if you do need any login information please contact the school on office@grangetown.sunderland.sch.uk and we will send them out to you. These are some of the websites which we use in school and they cover many aspects of reading, writing and maths. These wensite are:

Week beginning Monday 30th March

Hello, we hope that you are all well and staying safe at home.

Below is an overview of things that we would have been covering in school this week and some suggested activities that you could do at home.

English

To create a leaflet – In school this week we would have been creating a leaflet all about the rainforest. Whilst at home it would be lovely if the children could create a leaflet of their own all about the rainforest. The children learnt lots of interesting facts about the rainforest but they could use the internet to research the topic further. On the leaflet challenge the children to include images, sub-headings and factual information. This could be created using one sheet of A4 paper folded into three sections. I can’t wait to see your creative leaflets when we get back to school.

Book

Maths

Fractions of amounts – children could be given a number of objects (for example 40 cheerios) and share them into eighths. The children could experiment to see what happens if they share them by other numbers. Children should begin to realise that if they shared 40 by all numbers within 10 they will sometimes have some left over and it will not share equally.

Geography

This half term we have been looking at a map of the world and locating rainforests. Challenge the children and see if they can name the seven continents and see if they can locate the equator, Tropic of cancer and Tropic of Capricorn on a map of the world. 

Using a map (there are some clear ones available to download on twinkle for free), children should learn the names of four countries in the southern hemisphere and four countries in the northern hemisphere.

Week Beginning Monday 23rd March

Activities that children could practice during this time are:

  • Tying shoe laces - there are many video clips on line to help like this one Tying your shoe lace
  • Learning how to tell the time - children could even make their own paper plate clocks to help them.
  • Pobble365 - This is a fantastic site to help with writing. There is a different picture every day, with five different activities including asking questions about the pictures or giving the children a 'story start'.
  • Twinkl - The Twinkl Home Learning Hub - a fabulous site that has lots of different activities and ideas that change every day.
  • White Rose Home Learning - has a lesson for each day. There is a short video to watch and then a page of activities (and an answer sheet for adults). In week 2, the Year 3 maths continues looking at fractions - fractions of objects and fractions that are the same.
  • The Maths Factor - Another very good maths resource - Carol Vorderman has made lots of video clips for the children to watch, with activities for the children to complete.
  • Classroom Secrets - have a Home Learning Pack for Year 3 including work for Maths, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, Reading and Practical Ideas
  • IXL - you could use with the children for English and Maths
  • Supermovers - is also a great site where children can sing along and dance as they learn their times tables. By the end of year 3, children should confidently know their 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x and 10x tables
  • Cosmic Kids Yoga - leads the children through wonderful adventures and stories, they practice yoga, mindfulness and relaxation.
