Class 3

Monday 20th April 

 

 Hello Class 3! I hope you all had a lovely Easter and managed to spend some time outside in the spring sunshine.  Hopefully you've had chance to complete some of the below so I have added some new activities to keep you going. I've just added them below so they're easy to find.

 

Have you got your login details for Microsoft Teams?  

We are moving to using Microsoft Teams to allow children to keep in touch with their teachers and to share the work that they have done.  

 

Email class3@thorparch-leh.co.uk and your login details will be sent to you.  Also, use this email address if you have any questions about using Microsoft Teams.  

20/4/20 - English activities

Below is a Talk 4 Writing booklet to work through, which contains activities to improve skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. Talk 4 Writing is a scheme we use in school so your child should be familiar with the format of the activities.

20/4/20 - Maths activities

 

 

As we follow the White Rose Scheme for maths in school, it would be good to continue this at home. 

WHITE ROSE MATHS HUB HOME LEARNING RESOURCES.

White Rose Maths Hub is producing a series of home learning resources which include a short video and a set of focused questions based on the area of learning for the day.  Some areas will have been covered by the children, which gives them chance to consolidate previous learning but others may be new and the videos will be especially helpful for this.  

Each week will see a new set of videos and work activities released.  There is more guidance on the White Rose Maths hub home learning.  

We would like children to select the from the resources provided for their year group.  However, if your child finds this too difficult, it is perfectly fine for children to select from an earlier year group.  

We follow the White Rose Maths Hub scheme of work in school so the children will be familiar with the layout and style of the problems.  

 

To supplement this, there is a revision booklet below that children can complete at their own pace.

20/4/20 - Geography activities

 

For our next Geography topic, we would have been comparing a region of the UK to a region in Europe. Children could choose an area in a European country and find out about their physical and human features and compare them to the local area or an area of the UK of their choice.

 

20/4/20 - Science activities

 

For our next Science topic, we would have been looking at animals including humans.  To start off with it would be useful for children to identify animals that are vertebrates and animals that are invertebrates.

To make home learning over this difficult period easier,  this page gives details of work and resources that will hopefully be useful and enjoyable. 

This initial set of work is designed to last until at least Easter but some aspects may take longer. This page will be updated regularly with more resources.

There are also lots of links to websites that are offering free resources for home learning that you can access.

Reading

Keep reading as much as possible at home. You might like to start your morning with some reading to set you up well for the day. If you're running short of reading materials, there are lots of eBooks available on the Oxford Owl website. Try to read a variety of texts and tick off as many on your book bingo as possible! Make sure you record your reading in your reading records - I'll look forward to finding out what you've all been reading!

Keep a diary of what you've been up to while school has been closed. 

The Literacy Shed has a variety of interesting videos that you could use as inspiration for some writing. There are suggested tasks linked to each video.

Science

In Science we have been learning about Plants. So far we identified and described the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers. We have investigated the way in which water is transported within plants. We are currently investigating the requirements of plants to live and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow). This topic is the perfect excuse to get in the garden if possible. Our next step is to explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal. There are plenty of videos to watch on the BBC website.

History

What did the Ancient Egyptians believe?

Continue your learning of this topic by researching what the Ancient Egyptians believed.

Some key things to find out about:

What did the Ancient Egyptians believe about the afterlife?

How did the Egyptians treat their dead?

Did everyone get mummified?

What were the roles of the Gods?

 

Present your research in a creative way. You could make a powerpoint presentation or a booklet of information. The choice is yours!
