Hi Guys,

 

We have now come to the end of the summer term.

 

Well done to all the children who have been working so hard at home and at school. 

 

Thank you to the parents who have been helping the children with home-schooling. Believe me when I say I know how difficult home-schooling is so WELL DONE!

 

I would also like to say a massive Thank You to the Year 3 teachers for providing a high quality home learning experience for the children.

 

We hope that everyone has lots of fun over the summer holidays.  Stay Safe!

 

All the best for Year 4.

Happy Monday

 

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. The sun has been so beautiful, great time to get outside have some exercise. Healthy body, healthy mind.

 

Maths

 

I thought we could go back to some of the basics, and have a look at something we do at the very start of the year, Place Value.

 

I would like you to create a sheet describing with examples what place value is and try to show me numbers in as many different ways as possible

Following on from our look at Islam, I would like a poster all about Christianity.

Christianity is the most popular religion in the UK, making up around 60% of the population, although only 55% of those Christians believe in a traditional god, what are some of the main features of the religion?

Stay positive. Look after each other. Be kind. Don't give up.

Thursday 9/7/2020

 

What a rainy few days! Make sure you keep logging in to Reading Buddies and remember to complete the quiz at the end of each book as this moves you up through the levels. In Year 3 you should be working at Level 12 books but if you are not there YET don't worry - just keep reading until you catch the reading bug. 

 

Here are some lessons for today:

 

History - The Romans

 

There were videos posted on Monday and Wednesday about the Roman empire. Today we are going to look in more detail at the Roman army. Have a look and READ through this PowerPoint - it tells you all about the Roman army, which was incredibly powerful and developed fighting techniques that are still used today. After that there is a video which shows you how to draw a Roman soldier! Grab yourself a pencil and have a go!

How To Draw A Roman Soldier

Today we're drawing a Roman soldier. Sorry about any adverts that pop up. Stop the video as many times as you need in order for you to follow the instructions.

Writing

 

Consonants and Vowels Year 3 Grammar: ‘a’ or ‘an’

Some letters in the alphabet are vowels and some letters are consonants.

The VOWELS are: a, e, i, o, and u.

All the other letters in the alphabet are called CONSONANTS.

a    b    c    d   e   f g h i    j k l

m   n   o   p q r s t u  v  

w x y z

 

Look at the words below carefully.

Decide if they start with a vowel or a consonant.

 

baby        elephant         ant        table

apple         book          pencil         tree 

bed          orange          cat           owl

 

Copy down the words on a piece of paper, making two lists.

The first list should be all the words that start with a vowel.

The second list should be all the words that start with a consonant.

 

*Usually if a word begins with a consonant you use 'a' before it.*

Eg. I can see a  lion.

*If a word begins with a vowel you use 'an'  before it.*

Eg. I can see an alligator.

 

Insert either 'a'  or 'an' into these sentences to make them correct.

Write the complete correct sentence on your piece of paper.

 

  1. It’s.………apple.

 

  1. It’s……….juicy apple.

 

  1. It’s……….owl.

 

  1. It’s……….wise owl.

 

  1. It’s……….bed.

 

  1. It’s……….old bed.

 

  1. It’s……….octopus.

 

  1. It’s……….big octopus.

 

  1. It’s………..pencil.

 

    10.It’s………purple pencil.

 

    11.It’s………onion.

 

    12.It’s………huge onion

 

 

Now write a sentence, using ‘a’ or ‘an’ correctly, with this picture:

Maths

 

Here are some worksheets that revisit some of the work we covered earlier in the year.

Wednesday 8/7/2020

 

Hey everybody. Hope you are all well. 

 

Tuesday!

07/07/2020 (some repetition in today's date)

 

Hope you are all making the most of the last couple weeks of work before the summer holiday. There are loads of videos online as well as work to help you out if you are stuck. Don't just do things once, but go back and practise them until you are confident. If you search around online you can find all sorts of exciting resources and methods to help you with your studies.

 

 

Maths.

 

I want you to practise the house number method today. Don't just stick with the numbers in the video but make your own random numbers to work with. It's a really important method, not because it is the fastest, but it's about developing your mental methods for adding and subtracting numbers. You need to know your numerbonds and how they help you.

English

 

Following on from yesterday's video on Islam, I would like to see a non-fiction poster to share as many details about Islam as you know. Use the BBC Bitesize (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpdtsbk/articles/zrxxgwx) website to help you with your research. Islam is one of the smaller religions in Britain at only 4.4% of the population, but in our area it is really significant, if you would like to make a powerpoint or video to share what you know, that would be great!

 

Reading

 

Today I would like you to play the grammar levels on this exciting game.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zkbkf4j/articles/zbm8scw

 

 

Happy Monday guys!

 

Hope you've had a lovely weekend. 

I've been busy teaching in school with year 5 and 6 last couple of weeks so haven't had the chance to set you some challenges. 

It's been great to see some of the work you have been emailing in.

 

I'm a little sad to see 3J isn't doing so well on the Oxford Reading buddy, come on guys, we can beat 3P and 3D! SURELY!!!

 

English Challenge

 

We've been making adverts in school and I would like some of you to have a go at inventing your own products and trying to advertise them.

 

Think about asking questions, try to use exciting adjectives to show off the quality of your product. Think of special offers.

 

Below is a playlist with the videos we made. (can you spot Mr  Doddridge in one of the videos.) Please send any videos or poster to the year 3 email address, I'm happy to add them to Youtube!

 

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLGizpSRK9UkSMugAiqDZIe8BX6CZ2yx2x

 

Maths

 

You watched the video on points on a compass. Now let's extend the work and start to think more about direction. Today and tomorrow I want you to be watching the video and joining in with any activities.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk5CT3A2rZY

 

Reading!

 

Well, seeing as Year 3 is still one of the worst year groups in the school for Oxford Reading buddies, you can imagine I'm going to be asking you to take three more tests, and make sure you get over 80% or you will not progress.

 

 

RE

 

Today's religion in Islam.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbddmqGvoT8&t=

 

 

 

History - Romans

 

Let's learn a little bit about the Romans.

 

The Romans invaded England around 2000 years ago.The Romans were from Italy but they ruled over many other countries and this enormous area was called the Roman Empire. Britain became part of this Roman Empire. When the Romans invaded Britain first they were ruled by an emperor called Julius Caesar. Watch the video to find out a little bit more about ancient Rome.

It's Friday!!!

 

Again, a lot of the activities today are based upon the story of The Lorax. If you didn't listen to and read the story on Monday here is the video again. 

The Lorax by Dr Seuss

Follow along as Ms. Linda reads this age-old Dr. Seuss tale. It's the fable of the wise Lorax defending his home and friends against the greedy Once-ler. Fin...

Hi Guys,

 

It's been lovely speaking to some of the children in 3P. Most of you sound like you are having fun at home.  I know I keep moaning about Reading Buddies, but it's also important to have as much fun as you can.

Hi Year 3,

 

I hope everyone had fun over the weekend. This message is mainly for 3P children. I'm not happy with our effort on Reading Buddy.  Some of you have been awesome and I can see you're reading every day.  Other children need to try harder to complete the quizzes, that's the only way that we will move up the leader board.  All of Year 3 need to read more!!!!!

Tuesday 30th June 2020

Hello children,

It's been quite a wet and windy weekend. Lets hope it's starts to get a bit sunnier soon. There are lots of Year 3 children logging onto Reading Buddies. Great work! Lets see if we can do even better this week. Come on 3D we are lagging behind a little even though Ayaan, Asil, Amanah, Amara, Fathiya and Maryam have been reading loads. Keep it up guys - I'm really proud of you!

Reading!

 

Year 3 is sadly one of the worst years currently on Oxford Reading Buddy (especially 3J!)

We really need to get on there and improve our scores! There are loads of you that do it without fail every day, but if you haven't won the weekly oxford reading Buddy challenge set by Mrs Davies yet, please try and get your name up there!

 

I will be looking and congratulating those who go on (and maybe shaming those who don't!)

Good Morning Children

Here are some lessons for 

Friday 12th June 2020

Here is how you say:  "How are you?" in lots of different languages.

 

English            -            How are you?

French             -           Comment allez-vous (comon-tal-e-voo)

German           -            Wie gehts  ( vee-gay-tz)  

Spanish           -            Como estas   (como-estaz)

Italian              -            Come stai   (como-es-ti)     

Reading 

 

Listen carefully and read along with Miss Duncan as she reads Chapter 30 of Gangsta Granny by David Walliams. 

Remember 'VIPERS'? 'VIPERS' stands for:

 

VOCABULARY

INFERE

PREDICT

EXPLAIN

RETRIEVE

SUMMARISE

 

These are skills that you need to practice to become an excellent reader. Here are six questions about Chapter 30 of 'Gangsta Granny' that will help you develop your reading skills.

 

Questions

1. On pages 259 and 260 there are four words that are used instead of the word 'said'. What are they?

 

2. On page 261 it says 'One of the policeman approached her and rather sheepishly took the key.' If the policeman looked 'sheepish' it means he looked a bit embarrassed and ashamed. Why do you think the policeman looked like this?

 

3. The policemen didn't find the Crown Jewels in Granny's house. What did they find?

 

4. Why do you think PC Fudge 'laughed' and 'smiled' at the idea of Granny and Ben stealing the Crown Jewels?

 

5. What do you think Mr Parker will do next?

 

6. Can you say, or write, one sentence which tells us what happened in this chapter. Remember, you can use conjunctions such as: but, because, although.

Gangsta Granny Chapter 30

Miss Duncan reads Gangsta Granny by David Walliams, illustrated by Tony Ross and published by HarperCollins.

Writing - Spelling and Grammar

 

Here are some SPAG activities. Read each section carefully. Answer the questions with a family member or jot your answers down on a piece of paper. Scroll down to see the answers. 

Maths - 3D shapes

 

Click through this PowerPoint about 3D shapes. You are obviously not in the classroom but try and find some examples of the these shapes around your house. Look carefully at all the packaging in your kitchen and all the containers in your bathroom.

 

Play 'Guess the Shape'. Collect a few examples of 3D shapes from around your house. With a family member play a game where you take it in turns to hold a shape behind your back so that you can't see it. Without looking at it, describe some of it's properties (faces, vertices etc) and see if you can name them correctly.

Hi Guys,

 

I hope you are well. It was lovely to speak to some of the children and parents this week.  I know Lock Down has made things difficult, but it's  always good to talk. Anyway, below are your lessons for Thursday.

Happy Wednesday !

 

Hope you are all well and enjoying the work. Sad to see the weather take a bit of a turn, but still really important to get outside and keep fit.

I've just bought some equipment to stay active at home and in the park, also I've been following Mrs Patterson's PE lessons to keep me active.

Remember that you need a healthy body to have a healthy mind! 

 

English

 

Continuing with our quick skills sessions I've done one on what a question mark is

Reading

 

Pick a character from any story you enjoy and write a short paragraph to explain why you like the character.

What is it about them that makes them entertaining? or what is it that makes you have a connection with them? 

Think about the things the character does, how the author introduces to you to them and how the writer makes you feel for the character.

 

 

Tuesday 9th June 2020

 

Here is how you say:  "My name is................" in lots of different languages.

 

English            -            My name is Frances.

French             -            Je m'appelle Frances   (zhuh-mah-pell)  

German           -            Ich heisse Frances       ( ick-hi-suh)

Spanish           -            Me llamo Frances        (mey-yamo)

Italian              -            Mi chiamo Frances      (me-k-yamo)

It's been a long time since we've heard from you about the books you are reading during lock down.

 

I'd like to hear a short review about the book you are reading. Use the skills we learnt during our non fiction topic (there are lots of videos on the school Youtube)

 

Who is it by? What is the name ?  Who are the characters? What do they do? What is the problem? How do they solve it? Did you like it? WHY HOW WHAT WHERE WHEN???

 

(don't just answer my questions, use them to guide your writing!)

(Always important to get some rest between the work!)

 

Maths

 

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?)

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 

Fun Stuff

 

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!

What does she learn? What do the people in the office learn?

What do you think is the message of the video?

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.

Here is a video to look at fractions of shape

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmwMr7G7NNQ

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

 

English

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. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epTTSzpLMJw

 

looking forward to reading yours and learning about someone new!

 

Reading

 

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!

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.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-ks2-geography-of-world-war-two/zv99rj6

 

This explains what VE day is

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-ks2-ve-day/z7xtmfr

 

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 y3@anglesey.bham.sch.uk.

Lessons for Thursday 07th of May 2020

Happy Thursday!

 

Good morning children.

 

Hope you've been enjoying the sun and learning all about non fiction and capacity.

 

Maths

 

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.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-Th_7lH8JQ&t=342s

 

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?

 

Literacy

 

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

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tKi5m5cJpQ

 

Think about what problem your device solves, how it will change my life, what incredible things it does.

Reading

 

Inference: Your challenge is to watch the video and guess the feeling from what you see. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOkyKyVFnSs

 

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.

Reading

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?

Gooooooood MoooooorNING children.

 

Silly stuff!

 

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.

Fronted adverbials 

Speech marks

Maths

 

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.

Writing

 

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.

Miss Duncan reads chapter 5 of Gangsta Granny by David Walliams, illustrated by Tony Ross and published by HarperCollins.

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 y3@anglesey.bham.sch.uk 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

 

hope you've had a great week and looking forward to the weekend.

Following on from Mr Jordan's lesson here is some work on main and subordinate clauses.

Maths

 

You have to learn how to tell the time on both a digital clock and an analogue clock. Have a go at identifying the times on these clocks. 

If you have a paper plate at home, some cardboard and some pens you could have a go at making yourself a paper clock which you could use when practising how to tell the time. 

Happy Friday Children.

Reading

For reading, I'd like you to have a conversation with your family members and find out what their favourite books are. You need to quiz them on why they like that book, what they find exciting about it. Who are their favourite characters and who they would recommend it to.

 

 

Those of you in 3J can continue the Matilda story on the School Youtube channel.

Also, on Friday as promised I'm going to put on a dance routine for you to practise it's your PE Dance lesson.  You have all been asking me to do the song

'Better when I'm dancing'.

 

I've finally learnt the moves again.......  Will upload it on Friday for your Freaky Friday Fun! smiley

Imagine the two laces are bunny ears..... Make the ears similar size and loop them around each other.
Good luck trying Year 3

 

 

Reading

Please try to read a little bit every day. We know that some of you took books home from school to read but take advantage of all the books that you can find and share them with your brothers and sisters.

 

Here is a special kind of short story called a FABLE. Fables usually have animals as the characters and there is an important lesson in the story for us all to learn from.

Class teachers.

 

Class 3P  - Ms Patterson

Class 3D  - Ms Duncan

Class 3J   - Mr Jordan

 

Hope you've had a lovely break over the summer and are refreshed and ready for a wonderful year of school work.

We have so many exciting things coming up and can't wait to get started.

 

This term we will be focusing on our Powerful Plants topic. We will be visiting the garden and getting the chance to plant our own crops which we will be harvesting and cooking later in the year.

 

We are looking at fairy tales over this half term, as well as working on our basic number school.

In ICT we will be creating our own websites and beginning to learn how to make stop motion.

 10 FUN FACTS

1. You can’t see your ears without a mirror.

2. You can’t count your hair.

3. You can’t breathe through your nose with your tongue out.

4. You just tried No 3.

6. When you did No 3 you realised that it was not only possible       but that you looked like a dog.

7. You are smiling right now, because you were fooled.

8. You skipped No 5

9. You just checked to see if there was a No 5.

10.Share this with your family so they can have some fun too.

Lets all have a nice day 😊

 

Most important in these frustrating times – silly fun:

 

TREASURE HUNT

Have a treasure hunt around the house. There are different ways to do this:

  1. One person hides a little treat somewhere in the house and everybody else has to find it.
  2. (My favourite) One person could hide a series of written clues which lead to a little treat hidden somewhere in the house. For example: the first clue could say, ‘We always use this to change the channels on the TV’ and then taped to the back of the TV remote the second clue could say, ‘This is where we keep all the apples and oranges’, and so on.
  3. One person could draw a treasure map so that others can find the hidden treats. The treasure map could include all kinds of details, such as rivers of killer piranha fish, or a field of poisonous plants. 

 

Don’t forget that the ‘treasure’ does not have to be money. It could be some cookies or a drink of hot chocolate. We hope you have lots of fun with this game.

 

Anyway, here is some work for Thursday 2nd April 2020
