Year 3 - Saracens

Please be assured that our weekly updates are simply a suggestion and we do not want you to worry about whether everything is completed every day. We want the resources and ideas to be helpful and not a hindrance. The work can be completed at any time. Additionally, if your child finds any of the learning from home tasks too challenging, please feel free to take a look at another class page. At this unusual time, our main priority is that our children and families are happy and healthy.

Learning From Home

Our aim, during this difficult time is to keep children at MPL thinking hard, gaining knowledge and honing their skills. It is important to help them maintain a routine and retain positive mental and physical health. We must strive to provide a consistent, positive point of contact in what will be a very unsettling time for many children. Please check this page weekly for new learning from home activities.

Weekly Update 8.07.2020 – 14.07.2020

Hello everybody, here is the weekly update of suggested home learning (uploaded on a Tuesday night, ready for the Wednesday). This learning will last you up until and including next Tuesday. Please remember to attend your new class Zoom tomorrow with Miss Lewis (if you are in Harlequins) or Mrs Simpson (if you are in Tigers). I think it's really important to go, even if you just sit and listen, to help you feel ready for September. 

This week our theme is still: Animals


Below are the suggested learning from home tasks:

English – Task 1 – There are lots of stories with animals. Retell a story you know well, with animals. Write as much as the story as you can.

Task 2 – Read through the email and correct the homophones.

Task 3 – Imagine you have morphed into your favourite animal. Write about a day in the life of this new animal version of you.

Task 4 – Write the correct plural of the words in the brackets. Use the ‘Rules of plurals’ sheet to remind you of the rules.

Task 5 – Create riddles of animals for people to guess.

Maths – This week you will need to cast your minds to Year 2 when you did fractions.

Task 1- Identify what fraction of shapes are shaded.

Task 2 – match and make fractions.

Task 3 – Find ways of making a whole. E.g. ¼ and ¾ makes 1 whole.

Task 4 – Compare and order fractions.

Task 5 – Look at the wholes and part of the wholes and write a mixed number to show the amount e.g. 3 and ¼.

Reading – Selection of three reading comprehension tasks and reading your home reader. It is your choice which day you do each activity.

Spelling – See spelling document for the week

TTRockstars - Please spend 15 minutes playing some of the games 

PE – Take a look at the 'Get Kids Moving' YouTube channel for some Avengers, Harry Potter and Disney themed workouts.

Project - Over the next fortnight, have a go at the ‘Animals’ project. Pick the different parts of the project you want to do – you don’t have to do them all!

Climate Change – check out this website with lots of cool information about climate change:  Play a fun game, ordering foods according to their Co2 emission footprint:
