Hey everyone, hope you had a wonderful break from work.
(Always important to get some rest between the work!)
This week we are starting to look at shape so one of the first things you will need to know about are lines.
Here is a video with a big spelling mistake on the board!! (can you spot it?)
Also there is a final video to finish Time and converting 12 and 24 hour time, it is worth doing too.
English we are looking at some basic sentence structure and word types, so to star with, what is a sentence?
Also there is a final video from the weeks before on non fiction, looking at facts and opinions.
I was looking around Youtube and found a perfect reading activity for you guys from our very own Mr (Chessman) Moore
Scroll right down to find all the new activities for today:
Writing a Recount
Reading - Gangsta Granny Chapter 25
Playing Card Maths
You don't have to print out these worksheets - just grab a pencil and paper. Scroll down to the bottom to find out the answers. (No cheating!)
Science - Food Chains
A FOOD CHAIN shows how animals (including us) depend on plants and other animals for their food and survival. Two key words to remember here are PRODUCERS and CONSUMERS.
PRODUCERS are plants that make their own food using energy from the sun.
CONSUMERS are animals that eat plants and/or other animals for food.
First click through the PowerPoint which describes Food Chains in a bit more detail.
Then have a go at the Food Chain games from the BBC
Have a go at making these fantastic pictures of bugs, beetles and insects. You can use leaves and sticks, as shown here, or you can use bits of old (clean) packaging you been saving.
Writing a Recount
A RECOUNT is when you tell somebody about something that has happened to you, or something that you have experienced. I would like you to write a RECOUNT about something that has happened to you recently. I know a lot of you celebrated Eid a few days ago so you could tell me about that - what you did, where you were, what you ate, who you were with and how you felt. If you don't want to write about Eid you could write about something else you have done that you remember well - a trip to the park, making a cake with your family, playing with the hose pipe in the garden.
If you can, send a copy of your recount to the email address above and we will post it up on the website. Happy writing!

Although we wont be uploading lessons next week we would still like you to use Oxford Reading Buddy.
Hope you are all doing well, we've been receiving lots of fantastic work via the email address from you guys, please keep it coming!

Great opportunity to learn a new language!
With Mrs Patterson we have been doing time and Mrs Duncan some more fractions so I've got some videos of both for you.
The time one
The fraction one
Some extra ones on fractions
Staying on the non fiction train this week.
Here is me making a review using time language, I think....
Here is a short video for you to watch and there are some questions to go with it.
How does Purl feel at the beginning? How do you know?
How would you feel at your first day at work?
How does her attitude change over the story? Why do you think this is?
What does she learn? What do the people in the office learn?
What do you think is the message of the video?

Good Morning children.
Hopefully, it won't be too long before school opens.
We can't wait to see you all again.
Here are some lessons for today. Have fun.
We hope you are enjoying our lessons, we are trying to keep them as interact as possible.
Don't hesitate to email us if you have any problems with the activities we're setting.

This week we are starting to look at time.
First lesson is just understanding the clock and how it works.
Why not make and label your own clock to explain to me how it works.
English we are carrying on with non fiction writing.
Im looking to see you make me a recipe which isn't food based if possible, try and be inventive, what about recipe for being a good friend, or recipe for happy week?
As a year group we have one of the lowest scores in the school on Oxford Reading Buddy, actually 3J especially, so your target today is to get over 80% in at least three comprehensions, we will be going online to see who has accessed.
Friday 15th May 2020
Good morning children.
Here are some lessons for today:
Good Morning Year 3,
Hope you have a Fantastic Thursday!!!!
Besides school work we would love to know what other activities you have been doing since Lock Down.
It's important to have as much FUN as you can during this period of difficulty...
Maybe you can think of your own games to play with your siblings or parents.
I would like to THANK the parents who I spoke to yesterday. You all cheered me up and made me proud to work at ANGLESEY PRIMARY. We will always go the extra mile for our children.... Thanks for appreciating our videos.
Keep smiling guys.
Hey, hope you are all well. There's been so many exciting things going on, hard to keep on top of it all.
We have started to look at fractions this week.
Here is a video to look at fractions of shape
can you cut out some shapes and label them into fractions (such as into 1/4, 1/5, 1/10) and send them into us
We've been looking at lots of features of non fiction including, sub headings, bullet points, layouts, trying making adverts.
Now we are starting to put all our skills together, below is a video to show how I might go about making a biography.
looking forward to reading yours and learning about someone new!
Reading is a little different today, as part of next weeks non fiction we will be looking at writing a review. I want you to pick a good book, fiction preferably, enjoy reading it over the next week.
Think hard as you read about the different characters, how they interact.
What is happening in the story. Where the story is set.
Is there a dilemma in the story that the characters have to overcome? How do they do it?
Do you enjoy the story, why.
You don't need to write anything yet, but get thinking!
Have a go at drawing a face with Mrs Penn. email us your best one!
Tuesday 12th May 2020
Hello children. I hope you and your families are all well and not too bored. Sometimes it is difficult to stay happy and positive in these challenging times and I get a little down because I am missing you all and wish we could all get back to normal. However, I then think how lucky we are to have our families and friends, it's spring time and the birds are singing and the flowers are blooming, and we have the fantastic NHS to help us.
If you are feeling a bit down, try to have a chat with someone you are close to - I'm sure they feel the same way. Or keep a diary because sometimes writing things down can help you feel better. Be kind and helpful, do some exercises every day and lets keep going!

VE Day 75th Year celebration
Times might be hard now, but 75 years ago today we celebrated the end of this.
Happy VE day everyone.
Today is such an important celebration as it is the day we celebrate the Victory over Europe (That's what the VE stands for)
World war two was the biggest war ever, and Britain played a central role defending the world against the tyranny of Right Wing extremism. Enemies wanted to take away our freedoms, they wanted to tell us what to do, what to wear and what to think. But we knew that freedom was the most important thing.
Countries such as Britain, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Many African nations, Canada, Australia all came together to defend our way of life.
Here is a quick video to show how the war spread.
This explains what VE day is
Your task is to make a poster, using the non fiction skills you have learnt, to show why VE day is so important.
Please send your completed work to email@example.com.
Lessons for Thursday 07th of May 2020
Good morning children.
Hope you've been enjoying the sun and learning all about non fiction and capacity.
Continuing on from Mrs Patterson lesson looking at the different types of capacity, we are looking in more detail at how to read different points on the scale.
Can you find different types of scale around the house? They don't just have to be capacity!
If you label different points, can you work out what the value is?
We have been looking at non fiction texts and different features.
I would like you to invent your own creation, it could be something completely new that solves some problem we all have. And you are going to try and advertise it to me.
I am going to put the most tempting creations up on the website
Think about what problem your device solves, how it will change my life, what incredible things it does.
Inference: Your challenge is to watch the video and guess the feeling from what you see.
Extension: write down as many different emotions as possible on a piece of paper (at least 20!) cut them all up and pop them in a bag. Pick them at random and you have to do that feeling, your partner has to guess what your emotion is.
Send photos of your different emotions to our email if you would like! look forward to seeing the most unusual.
Mrs Penn has a new game for you! very exciting.

Here is the Subheading lesson
For Reading I'd like you to get onto Oxford reading buddy and move up at least one level, that's your little challenge for today. Remember to do this you need to get at least 80% in five tests in a row. Easy way to do that is to check back for each answer, as all the answers are in the book, you could even use the internet to help you?
Have you had a go at the chess? All the pieces have been made, so more videos will be arriving to show some tactics.

Gooooooood MoooooorNING children.
Play this game with your family using rolled up socks. Place baskets or boxes around the room and throw the rolled up socks into them. The closest baskets have the least amount of points, and the baskets furthest away have the most amount of points. You can have as many baskets or boxes as you want/have, but each one should have different points. Everybody playing the game has to throw from the same position. Add up the points at the end to see who has won.
Here is a quick video to show you how to draw a skeleton. Try to remember the names of the bones as you draw them ?
Here is some work on PERIMETER.
PERIMETER is when you measure around the outside of a shape. You will also need to remember the work that we have already covered on measuring in cm and mm. Grab a piece of paper to jot down your calculations and answers and then scroll down the worksheet to check your answers. Good luck.
Using the storymap of PIP, that Mrs Patterson asked you to draw, WRITE the story of PIP in words. You could even make your own little book to read to your family. Try to include some of the things that you have been learning about over the last few weeks:

Tuesday 28th April 2020
We hope you and your families are well. We have had lots of visits to the Anglesey School website and we hope you are finding the lessons and activities we are posting entertaining and educational. If you struggle to understand anything, or need to ask a question, email us with your questions and we will do our best to help you. You can also send us pictures of your stories, drawings and models and we will include them on the website.
Chapters 6 & 7 of Gangsta Granny
Watch the You Tube video first to help you complete the worksheet. You will need a pencil and paper to copy out some text, but if you don't have these you should just read all the information and try to remember the names of some of your bones.
If you have had a go at the maths from last week, (about measuring in centimetres and millimetres), you should be able to answer these questions. There are three - easy, medium and hard - but do as many as you can. Below the picture there is a word document with a maths problem for you to talk and think about.
Yesterday you watched a short film about Pip - a puppy who wants to be a guide dog for a blind person. On a piece of paper I want you to write a description of the following:
1. How do you think Pip feels as he walks through the school gates?
2. What pictures does Pip look at as he walks through the door? Why is he interested in these?
3. The female dog trainer needs to check that Pip is big enough to become a guide dog. What does he do to make sure he passes the test?
4. What does he do and how does he feel when he is allowed into training?
You don't need to write a lot - just a sentence or two but try to include some adjectives, some adverbs and some conjunctions (such as: because, even though and so) Keep hold of this work because it will help you later in the week when you write the story.
With love from the year 3 team
email us on email@example.com
Hi Year 3,
We hope you had a lovely weekend and managed to make the most out of the wonderful weather we've had!
Lessons for Monday are:
Watch the short animation clip. As you watch it start thinking about the questions below the clip.
This task is about using your imagination and inference skills.
How many different drills can you do?
Think about hopping, jumping skipping, bunny hops, lunges.
Do a minute of each drill if you can.
We've got little task for you over the weekend.
As we are having a school wide poetry competition, would you be able to write us a poem about Ramadan, if you are to shy to perform it, please just email us a copy of the poem to firstname.lastname@example.org but obviously it would be great for it be performed.
Poems don't need to have rhyming words (but they do sound good!)
Think about the rhythm and the pace of the poem.
It can be about the things you do, the way you feel and the reasons why.
See you Monday!
Year 3 Team.
Happy Friday guys!
And hope you're having a fantastic first day of Ramadan
