It's FRIYAY!! Hope you and your families are well.
This will be the last day that work will be posted on the website, as next week is the half term holiday. We will all be back in school on Monday 2nd November.
Enjoy the lessons and activities.
Here is a PowerPoint demonstrating subtraction using Base 10 and number lines. Watch carefully and then have a go at the worksheets.
Now have a go at the worksheet below. To help you work these sums out you could draw a picture of the numbers using base 10, or work it out using a number line. Try not to look at answers before you have had a go at the questions!
VERBS are action, or doing words.
Watch this short video about verbs then have a go at the worksheet.
Please go onto Oxford Reading Buddies and read some books. Well done to all of you who have been logging on all week and reading! See if you can move up a level before you come back to school after the holiday.
Watch this video of Miss Duncan draw a picture of a little bird. Now grab yourself a pencil and a piece of paper and have a go yourself. Watch the video carefully and then pause it so get a chance to copy what you see.

Lovely to her from so many of you so far. Hope you are working hard at home. Remember that this is still a school week even if you are home. you need to be working hard and focusing, if you don't you are only making things harder for yourself in the long run.
I've had a lot of people asking about logins, if you are having trouble accessing anything, then your username is your b number and your password is generally your last name followed by your b number.
Yesterday you were looking at speech marks and there has been some fantastic work. remember to make a comic strip to go with it.
Using the comic strip from yesterdays lesson can you try using adj,adj sentences to write a sentence for each picture to describe what's going on.
Below is a video to help you understand what I am talking about.
We have been looking at addition and subtraction so here are two videos to help you with your written methods.
try making some of your own questions too at the end to prove you know how to do it and remember to pause and try as the video goes along.
It is always best to do this with someone else at home.
As it's the middle of the week, I want you to all get onto Oxford Reading Buddy and try to be the best reader out there.
Last week our top readers were
3C Saffiya Rasool
3D Mohammed Mikael Yasir

3P Khadijah Nazir
Can you be the best reader this week?
Remember it is your b number followed by your last name and b number and the school code is xrtbw

For your fourth lesson, why not make an art game to play with your family at home.
Lots of imagination, lots of exciting ideas and some hand eye coordination development.
There is no work on google classroom, it is just present as a portal for the children to chat over, if they don't have a login, then don't worry.

Well, the week has flashed past and it's Friday already. We hope you are all happy and healthy and have enjoyed the work that we have put up on this class page. We have all missed you and are really looking forward to welcoming everybody back into school on Monday 21st September.
A simile is a way of describing something by comparing it to something else using 'like' or 'as', usually in an interesting or imaginative way.
Here are some examples of similes:
The house was as black as night.
Her eyes shone as brightly as the stars.
The car was as fast as a cheetah.
A good simile plants an image in the reader's mind. As you can see, they can be great fun to use and are fantastic for encouraging your child to use an adventurous and creative vocabulary!
The sun was as hot as fire.
Her face was as smooth as porcelain.
The old man had a voice like gravel.
Write your new similes out, in your neatest handwriting, on a piece of paper, Remember to use capital letters and full stops and leave finger spaces between your words.
This week you have been looking at numbers to 100, place value and number sequences. Have a look at this PowerPoint which shows different numbers with Base 10 equipment. Click slowly through the PowerPoint and either say or write down your answers. The answers are given after each picture so make sure you don't click through too quickly.
Now have a look at these Base 10 numbers. They show 100's 10's and I's (or units) Write down what each Base 10 number is in digits. The answers are written below. No cheating!
Answers: 111, 134, 156, 129, 142, 196
Reading / Science comprehension
We have been learning a little bit about seeds. Read the short text about SEED DISPERSAL and then answer the questions. You don't have to write your answers down unless you want to.
It is important to do some sort of exercise every day to keep our minds and bodies healthy. The first video below is a workout with Joe Wicks. It will leave you breathless but it is only 5 minutes long.
The second video shows a lady called Lydia and a little girl called Stella practising some Tai Chi and Yoga. Tai Chi is a mixture of deep breathing and flowing movements. It helps to make you feel calm and relaxed.
Email us at
Great to hear from some of you over this week. Don't forget if you have any questions to email us on email@example.com
Watch the short video.
I'd like you to think about the different feelings through the video.
Can you come up with a bank of as many feelings as you can think of?
Now try to order those feelings.
I can pick one of the feelings to write a sentence, here is my one.
Joyously, the girl played with her did in the pretend space ship.
Can you write five sentences starting with an emotion? Remember the comma as you learnt yesterday with the fronted adverbials!
Past and present.
The girl's life changed a lot throughout the film.
IMagine you are the girl when she is an adult, can you write some past and present sentences.
The determined woman steps out of the large space ship and explores the moon. (Present)
She received some terrible news, she ate her dinner alone. (past)
Can you write a selection of past and present sentences about the story?
Below is a lesson to help.
Similes are when we compare one thing to another.
e.g The girl's new boots are as white as snow.
Watch the video below on similes and can you try and write some similes about the cartoon?
Today we are looking at numbers to 1000
have a look at the video below.
A little mental maths game to help you with adding multiple numbers and getting used to using number bonds and recognising hundreds, tens and ones.
This is known as the house number method.
Remember there's a big competition for the top reader as well as the class with the most improvement, there's still a lot of you who haven't been on, so get onto oxford reading buddy and try your best.
Wednesday 16th September 2020
Good morning!!!! I hope you have been enjoying the beautiful weather we have had so far and are finding time to get all of the learning done that is being uploaded for you. Reminding you that you should be accessing Oxford Reading Buddies everyday.
We will be looking at the writing rainbow today to enhance our writing skills. Today we will be looking at the writing tier FANTASTICS to start with.
The lens we will be focusing on today is the smell lens. Take a look at the picture below. What kinds of words can you think of that can describe the smell?
Here are some of the words I jotted down to describe the smell. Can you order the words below on the shade-o-meter? Which words have a positive intent? Which words have a negative intent?
Now can you put any of these words or any words you may have found into a sentence to describe the smell in the picture?
Here is mine
There was a rancid smell of burnt food that was lingering in the air.
Now write out your own sentence (don't forget your writing laundry).
I would now like you to think of a sentence with an adverb lens. Here is Mr Jordan giving you an example of how to do this.
Watch the video below. Today we are focusing on the numberline to 100.
Pause the video as you go along to complete the activities.
Here is a additional challenge for you. Try out the game below. How many hoops can you score before you drop the ball??? Who will be our champion???
The weather has been amazing so lets take P.E outside! As a warm up activity, I would like you to click on the following link and join Joe Wickes to warm up and get those muscles working!
Exploring your balance
Use the picture cards below to work on your balance. Try and hold each position for 3 seconds. 1. 2. 3.
Working on your balance is very important. Now its time to cool down.
Follow the link below to cool your muscles down.
Some quick skills to help you with your literacy.
Different word types.
What are nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs?
Tuesday 15th September 2020
Hi Year 3,
We hope you are making the most of the good weather. We are anticipating that it will be hot all week so try and get some exercise where possible.
Remember once you have finished the activities set by the Year 3 Team you must log on to Reading Buddies. Try to read every day.
Below are your lessons for Tuesday.
Monday 14th September 2020
Good Morning Children
It's going to be a lovely sunny day today. I hope this makes you feel happy. It'll only be a few days before we can all be back together again in class. Have a go at the lessons below. If you get stuck don't worry - just try your best.
We will be working on different ways to improve our writing by using exciting vocabulary and writers tricks. Have a careful look at the picture below.
When we write about a picture like this we can use the five senses to help us. The five senses are: sight, sound, taste, smell and touch. Here is a sentence about the picture using ideas around sound.
A clock struck 9 somewhere in the distance as Lady and the Tramp tucked into their delicious dinner.
You have a go at writing 5 sentences about the picture. Use your imagination to think about what the characters can see, what they might be able to hear, what they might be able to smell, what Lady and the Tramp might be able to taste and what they are touching. Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning of your sentences and a full stop at the end of your sentence.
You spent some time in the garden with Martin last week and had a look at all the different plants. Martin showed you some plants that had stopped growing and made seeds. Have a look at the following PowerPoint to see how different seeds get spread around.
Have a look around your garden, or maybe in the park, and see if you can find some different seeds. You don't have to look just at the flowers, you could also have a look at the different grasses and the trees. The Autumn season is when lots of different plants are making seeds. You might find some conkers or some acorns!
Its important to do a little bit of exercise every day. This keeps both your body and mind healthy. Here is a short YouTube video to exercise along too. As the weather is good today why don't you try to do a little bit of exercise outside as well.
We were all so sad to see you all go on Thursday and really sorry we can't be with you. But don't worry, it won't be too long before we see you again and get straight back to our learning.
In the meantime we will update this page daily to make sure you all have lots to be getting on with during our mini lockdown!
For literacy today I would like you to collect as many words for feelings as you can have a look at the faces below...
How words can you think of to describe them?
Can you make a shade-o-meter and order them from most to least severe?
I could write a sentence like.
Devastated by the depressing news, the boy realised he had to go home.
Can you try picking some words from different parts of your shade-o-meter to make five different sentences?
1) 10, 20, 30, 40, ___, ___, ___
2) 100, 200, 300, 400, ____, ____ , ____
3) 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 =
4) 100 + 100 + 100 + 100 =
You can play with some base 10 here.
(set a number and try to make it, test someone else in your house)
Copy and paste the link in the bar at the top
Using the base 10 can you work out the numbers?
Copy and paste the link in the bar at the top
Here is a game for adding 10.

It has been so great to meet all of the new year group and we are looking forward to all the exciting activities we are going to get up to over this year.
It has been a long time since things were normal and as a school we are working tirelessly to ensure the children can work in a safe and happy environment.
So as to catch up with any lost time we have changed the timetable to ensure we focus on the core skills of literacy, numeracy and reading over this first half term.
We will be looking at basic number skills, including place value, addition, subtraction and multiplications.
In English we are introducing a new school wide scheme to help develop the children's creative writing skills
For reading children will be getting a mixture of whole class and small group reading sessions as well as continued work on phonics where necessary.
Homework will be handed back every Friday
There will also be spellings and timetables each week so please help us by asking your children what their spellings and times tables are each week.
We understand many of you may be concerned about Covid 19, so we are doing our best to ensure we minimise the risk to you and your families.
Children will be kept in bubbles so as to stay safe and will have staggered play times and lunch times. There is also hand sanitiser available throughout the day to ensure a safe environment.
