Oxford Reading Buddy - Readers of the Week!
These children have done some amazing reading on Oxford Reading Buddy this week.
Well done to:
3C: M. Yousef
Let's see who will win next week!
Happy Friday everyone.
Wow, what a week. The live stream got up to 71 children today which is a new record, well done guys. Make sure you keep tuning in for more the link is here.
Please be there at 10:00 am, remember this is a requirement on the days we have live lessons.
Second, you must now register your name each day, to show you have been online. If you do not, it is counted as an absence.
Next week the website will be changing a bit, there will be a new way for you to access the work, so don't be surprised if things look a bit different on Monday.
I just want to remind all of you how important it is to keep getting up and being there for the lessons, to keep doing your work and being the best you can be. There is now a timetable of daily expectations, we want to see more work being done and sent in to us, so keep it up.
Today you are looking at verbs and adverbs in your work book. Below are two videos to help you understand them.
Letter writing, we are still looking at letter writing in English, so below are some videos to help you with letter writing.
Informal letters are letters we write to our friends, they use chatty language and friendly phrases.
Formal letters are the sort of letters we might write to a job, boss or teacher. They are professionally written and use formal language.
Ignore the part about page 31 and Kirsty, instead use this section for the following.
If you have completed the work in the writing letter section, I would like you to use the the Writing a letter page to have a go at writing a formal letter to Mr Dodderidge. In it you can write about the things you have been learning during lockdown, the benefits of live lessons, what you like and dislike about lockdown.
You can show off some of the things we have been learning, try and use fronted adverbials. Try to include some of your opinions.
We are starting to look at the relationship between multiplication and division.
Below is a video with a guide on the relationship between division and multiplication.
It's Oxford Reading Buddy Day!
get yourself on, pass three tests! make your class the winner! we will be announcing the top readers in the Live Stream! IT COULD BE YOUUUUUU!
Live stream link for Thursday will be posted below. Make sure you're there at 10am!
Today we will be continuing multiplication. We will be looking at how to multiply a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number. Mr J demonstrated this in one of his live streams last week, but incase you missed it there is an example below.
Look at the example and complete the questions on a piece of paper. Remember to show your working out! You do not need to print out the worksheet.
After you have finished, you need to refer to the multiplication and division section of your booklet. Try and answer some of the multiplication word problems.
Can you spot the noun in the following sentences?
How many nouns can you see in this sentence?
In the afternoon, my dad went to the supermarket with our pet dog and bought some pencils, books, and drinks.
Can you write your own sentences using 2 or more nouns?
After you have finished your sentences you need to find and complete the page on nouns in your booklets.
The Reluctant Dragon
In your booklets, you need to turn to the text The Reluctant Dragon.
As you are reading the text, I would like you to answer the following questions. I have added additional questions to help with our vocabulary.
What does reluctant mean?
When have you been reluctant?
What does the phrase 'contented mood' infer?
What is a damsel?
Continue to answer the other questions in the booklet!
Healthy body = healthy mind.
Get exercising children!
Over the next few days we will be looking at letter writing.
Before we start the topic, I would like you to write a list of key features that should be included in a letter.
Name - You need to include a name to ensure the correct person is reading the letter.
Can you list other important features and say why?
Here is the link to Wednesday morning's live stream.
We expect you all to be there.
Wednesday 13th January 2021
Today we will be looking at the 8 TIMES TABLE. Remember: the answers in the 8 times table are called MULTIPLES of 8.
Eg 8 X 2 = 16 16 is a MULTIPLE of 8
In your pack find the 2 pages that have the 8 times table activities and have a go.
Your also need to understand that DIVISION is the INVERSE of multiplication:
So, if 8 MULTIPLIED by 2 = 16 then 16 DIVIDED by 8 = 2
Why do we have to brush our teeth?
Yesterday you were asked to write some instructions about HOW to brush your teeth. Here's a short video explaining WHY it's important to brush your teeth.
Being able to draw a DIAGRAM is an important skill to develop.
A DIAGRAM is a simple drawing, which is easy to understand, that shows what something looks like, how something is made or how something works. It usually has labels, which name or identify different parts of the diagram.
Here is a diagram of a tooth with labels.
COPY the diagram of the tooth and include the labels.
Underneath your diagram, write 5 facts about teeth that you found out from the video.
In your packs of work you will find the reading activity called PIONEER CHILDREN.
Read it through carefully and then answer the comprehension questions. Some of the questions are quite difficult so you might want to discuss your answers with a grown up or older brother or sister.
This kind of text is sometimes classified as HISTORICAL INFORMATION.
Below is an old print of some immigrants on a ship at sea.
I wonder where they were traveling to?
I wonder if they were scared or excited about where they were traveling to? Or both?
I wonder if they wanted to leave Britain or if they were forced to leave?
I wonder what the man in the middle of the picture is pointing at?
Words often change depending on whether you are speaking, or writing about 1 thing, or more than one thing.
SINGULAR means one thing.
PLURAL means more than one thing.
In your booklets complete the page about plurals.
You can watch the video below as well to help you. Don't worry, changing words from singular to plural can be really confusing at first, but practice makes perfect!
When you have finished the page about plurals have a go at the page entitled VERBS and ADVERBS.
a VERB is an action word,
an ADVERB describes the verb.
Tuesday 12th January 2021
Good morning Year 3. It's been great to hear from a lot of you this week. As per usual, we have our live stream taking place at 10.00am.
You are expected to join, this is counted as a school lesson.
Here is the link below!!!
Today we are going to continue practising how to write instructions. Today I would like you to base your instructional writing around how to brush your teeth.
Remember to include some of the key features of instructions such as:
Today i would like you to focus on including imperative verbs into your writing. Here's a quick video on what imperative verbs are.
For your spelling ang grammar activity today please turn to the page titled Syllables and rhymes.
Words can be divided into syllables to create a beat. Watch the video below to help you understand what syllables are.
Rhyming words are words that may have different sounds at the start of a word but end with the same sound making them sound similar and rhyme.
Now take a look at this clip see how many rhyming words you can get right.
Today we will be looking at multiples of 3 and 4. Multiples of 3 are numbers that are in the three times table, like 3, 6 and 9. They all appear in the three times table.
Multiples of 4 are numbers that appear in the 4 times table, like 4,8 and 12.
Now can you turn to the page headed multiples of 3 and 4 and complete the activities.
Your reading activity today is An Interview with Andy Seed. Here are some questions for you to think about.
What is an interview?
Is it fiction or non- fiction?
Complete the comprehension activity if you have any questions send them in on the Year 3 google classroom page.
Happy Monday everyone.
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are all rested up ready for a week of work.
Our next Live lesson is at 10:00am on Monday. It is an expectation that you attend the lesson and use the opportunity to ask any questions you have.
The link is below.
If you do have questions, please ask us on the google classroom. Any one having issues remember to login
If you are struggling to login, make sure you fully logout first and start again, this is where most issues seem to arise.
Username is b number followed by @anglesey.bham.sch.uk
Password is your last name followed by b number.
eg username: email@example.com
If your last name is less than 5 letters long (eg Ali) , you may have a different password, in which case, email us with your full name and class to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help.
It has been so good to see so many comics being emailed to us, we have really enjoyed reading them and are proud of the work you have been doing.
For the next few days we are going to be looking at some non fiction writing linked to the work pack you had posted through your door.
In English we are looking at creating a recipe.
Recipes are instructions, they show people how to make something.
They require a list of ingredients (use bullet points)
They needs step by step guides (use numbers to indicate different steps)
They need reminders and warnings.
Try finding a recipe online and write your own on the sheet provided.
We would like to see some of your home cooking over this week, so be creative.
In your booklet there is a section mon alliteration. Watch the video below to help you with this.
In the booklet you will see today's work is on multiples of 2,5 and 10. This should be straight forward for most of us. We were discussing in the live lesson what multiplication is.
It is repeated addition, so for example
5 x 6 = ?
Five multiplied by six equals what?
We are multiplying 5 six times.
(Be careful, some people, including myself, may say 5 lots of 6 or 5 times 6, even though these have the same answer, they are slightly different questions... can you think why?)
On the sheet can you find the numbers which are multiples of 2,5 and 10. This means they are in their times table
eg Find multiples of 3
answer = 3,6,12 These are the only number in that list which are a multiple of three as they are in the 3 times table.
In the first live stream we were discussing scale and some children were a little stuck, so I have made a very basic video to help you out below. Have a watch and email me your answers.
The Three Nanny Goats Gruff
In the booklet, today's reading is all about the Three Nanny Goats Gruff.
the story is set out like a playscript.
Notice how with a playscript the name of the character speaking is written at the side, and we do not use speech marks for dialogue. Read through the story either on your own of with someone in your bubble and have a go at the linked questions.
Any questions please ask them on google classroom.
Oxford Reading Buddy

Reading - Oxford Reading Buddy
Books are fantastic - you must read every day!
We are checking to see who is logging on and completing books and quizzes. If you have any issues with Oxford Reading Buddy you need to email us straight away at email@example.com or talk directly to your teacher on google classroom.
When we are planning to write a story we need to think a little bit about what happens at the beginning, what happens in the middle and what happens at the end. These different parts of a story are called plot points.
Beginning - this is where the characters and setting are introduced and described. What do they look like and why should we be interested in them?
Middle - this is where there is a change or problem of some kind that the characters have to deal with. Describe what the characters do about the problem and how do they feel?
End - this is where the story is resolved. The problem is solved, questions are answered, and the characters carry on with their lives.
Here is a bar chart showing the colours of smarties in a tube. This chart looks a bit different from the ones you have seen in the last two days but it stills shows DATA, or information, in a way which makes it easy to read and understand. look at the chart carefully and then answer the questions underneath.
1. Which colour smartie was the MOST frequent?
2. Which colour smartie was the LEAST frequent?
3. How many ORANGE smarties are there?
4. If I ADDED all the pink smarties and all the purple smarties together, how many would I have?
5. If I ate HALF of the red smarties, how many would be left over?
6. How many smarties were in the tube ALTOGETHER?
(The answers to these Maths questions will be posted on Year 3's google classroom)
During the winter months garden birds often find it difficult to find food. Have a go at making this bird feeder out of an old plastic bottle. Make sure an adult helps you with the cutting!

Welcome back everybody!!! Some exciting news Mr Jordan is doing a live stream at 11.00am on the 7th January, this will be a little catch up and a chance to go over some of the things we will be doing in the lockdown. I'm sure you are all as excited as I am. Remember its at 11.00a.m!!
Literacy / PHSE
Watch the presentation below
Now what we would like you to do today is create a comic strip where Sam has to save Melon Head from getting squished using the STOP, LOOK, LISTEN, THINK sequence.
We would like you focus on the skill speech. So here is a video to remind you what speech is.
Following on from yesterdays lesson on today I would like to to create a Tally and Bar Chart to show how many steps it takes you to walk to the following places in your house.
So if you start from your front door how many steps does it take you to get to the
Maybe now you could have a go at the activity attached.
Please ensure that you log onto Oxford Ready Buddy (ORB) and complete at least 15 minutes of reading. We will be checking to see who is our reader of the week and which class is the best at reading on ORB.
Some of you may have remembered from our last mini lockdown that we had set up an online topic page on Stone age for you to complete.
You will be getting a pack of work through your door today. Please do not start this work yet as we will be doing online work along side it starting next week.
Just do the work on the website this week, not the pack we are sending home.
If you do not receive a pack by Friday, please let us know.
Happy new year everyone. We are so sad that we can't open for everyone this week and will be staying closed until at least the February Half Term.
This obviously does not mean the Christmas holiday has been extended and we need to get straight back to some work.
Remember to login to your google classroom to get chatting to all your friends. there is a year 3 page for posting any work and also individual class pages.
Your login is your b number @anglesey.bham.sch.uk
your password is your past name followed by your b number
HOWEVER, some of you if your last name is a bit shorter may have a slightly different password. (but you should remember that by now as we use it every week!)
For literacy this week we are going to be working on making some comics. We will be adding different features to comic each day and byt the end of the week we expect to see a full comic creation to be emailed into firstname.lastname@example.org
Todays lesson we are looking at simply designing a short comic, this is a bit of practise before we get on to some more details.
Watch the video below.
We will be looking at data and graphs for the next three days before moving on to some multiplication and division over the next few weeks.
Today is a quick introduction to graphs.
Watch the video below.
for today I just want to make sure all of you get back onto Oxford Reading buddy.
there will be weekly competitions not only for the top class but the top pupils too which will be posted on the website.
We are looking to see all of you login today and will be checking to see who has not looked at the work yet.
If you have any issues with Oxford reading buddy you need to email us straight away at email@example.com or talk directly to your teacher on google classroom.
So far this term we have looked at Hinduism.
Today i want you to take a look at Buddhism. I have made a video below to tell you a little bit about it, but as usual with RE, it is up to you to do your own research. i would like you to create a fact file all about Buddhism to teach me what you have found out. Think about comparing it to other religions you might know. What is similar and what is different?
This is the end of Wednesday's work. remember if you have any issues, then you can contact your teachers directly using google classroom. If you are struggling to login to that then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wow, what a week. There have been so many fantastic contributions from you guys on the emails, via google classroom and over the phone.
Has been great to talk to you all and find out how you are getting on and it's been nice to see some of you asking questions online.
As this is our last day of lockdown I thought we could do something a little different.
I want you to create a new invention.
It needs to solve a problem! so for example it might be that the problem is that I don't have enough time in the morning to get ready for school, so i want something to make me a cup of tea ready for when i wake up.
So I have invented an alarm clock kettle which prepares my tea ready for when I get up.
Here I have made an advert for it
I also have a slightly different challenge for your maths to be having a go with over the weekend.
I want us to get a bit of a head start with reading the time. I would like you to talk with your parents and set them the challenge of teaching you how to read the time.
I have provided to little videos below to start understanding how the clock works, but this is something where us teachers are going to be quizzing you when you get back and checking that you can read a clock. (year 3 children always find this tricky when we get to it, so let's get started now)
After some of the amazing research you guys have been doing around Hinduism I've had lots of questions about different religions, so I thought to day we can look at the Abrahamic religions and I want you to do a similar task as last time.
Do some of your own research (the bbc is great for this) and see if you can find as many similarities and differences between these different religions.
It was originally an Eid/NHS star, but seeing as it's coming close to winter, it looks great as snowflake to put up in your bedroom.
So little challenge for you to have a go at making your own NHS snowflake!
A bit of fun.
Here is a little quiz that you can play along with at home.
Thursday 26th November 2020
Good morning Year 3. Not long until we are back in school and we can see everyone again. I just wanted to say that we have been so amazed by the work some of you have been completing!!! We'd love to see a lot more so keep emailing or uploading them to us.
This week and last week we have been doing a lot of work on kindness. Today I would like you to come up with and acrostic poem all to do with what being kind might look, feel and sound like. Please take another look at the video posted earlier on in the week to remind you of some examples.
I would like to think about some synonyms for kindness and place them on a shade 'o' meter. Here are some of mine.
Here is an example of a kindness poem. I have used local towns to describe what the people of Birmingham are like.
Kind in Kingstanding.
Inspirational in school.
Nice in New Oscott.
Decent in Digbeth.
Neighbourly in Newtown.
Empathetic in Erdington.
Sympathetic in Small Heath.
Selflessness in Sparkhill.
You can use local towns or people you may know who you think are kind.
Over the last couple of weeks we have been looking at subtraction. Here is a short clip of how we can find subtract a 3 digit number from a 2 digit number by using a numberline.
Topic - Stone Age Art
During the Stone Age they used materials such as charcoal and chalk to create these fabulous images.
I would like to to create some of your own Stone Age art - think about the colours and objects that appeared in the cave paintings.
Year 3 have been sent in some lovely videos. Keep up the good work!
Thanks Mikail & Ridwan
Wednesday 25th November 2020
Hello children! Hope you and your families are being kind to each other, and being resilient, during these difficult times. It sounds like there will be a vaccine for Covid soon so we have just got to hang on and get through this.
An onomatopoeia (pronounced: on-oh-mat-oh-pea-uh) is a word that sounds like the object, or noise, or action it is describing. Here is a poem about onomatopoeia:
by Lill Pluta
is a very special thing.
It's a word like quack or flutter,
Or oink or boom or zing.
It sounds just like it's meaning,
for example snort and hum.
It's the crash and clang of cymbals,
and the rat-a tat of drums.
It's the clatter and the plip plops,
and the beeps and bonks and chirps.
It's the mumbles and the rumbles,
and the rattles and the burps.
It's the hissing and the buzzing,
and the giggles and the moos.
And on a spooky moonlit night,
it is a scary BOO!
I'd like you to have a go at writing your own ONOMATOPOEIA poem now. Think about all the sights and sounds and actions that happen in the playground at playtime when everybody is running around and chatting, laughing, arguing and having fun. Each line starts with an onomatopoeia word. I've done the first line for you. You can add more lines if you want to and you don't have to worry about anything rhyming. Remember to email your poems if you can, or photograph them and post them on google classroom.
You need to be familiar with British coins and notes. You need to know the value of each coin and note, and practice adding and subtracting different amounts.
Now have a go at these worksheets. You have to work out 'Who has the most money' Add up and compare the different amounts of money. Try not to check your answers until you've tried your very best to finish all the questions.
PE with Mr Jordan
Today, for PE, I thought we could learn a few dance moves with Mr Jordan. He's got some great moves in this video (who knew he could be so cool!), so why don't you practice and show him what great dancers you are when we are back in school.
Message for 3P children. Tomorrow I will be giving you all a call to catch up with everyone!
I have also received a few fitness videos from some of the children, any videos sent in will be on the school YT channel, website & G Classroom.
Tuesday 24th November 2020
Thank you to everyone who has sent us their work. We can see you how hard you have been working. Keep up the good work.
If you haven't emailed your work, can you please send it to:
Y3@anglesey.bham.sch.uk or G Classroom
Your lessons for Tuesday are below.
Monday 23rd of November.
Happy Monday guys, I have been so overwhelmed by the fantastic work that some children have been emailing in to us, it's been great. But, I haven't seen anything from a lot of you. So this weeks challenge is to make sure you send us something to show what you have been doing.
You will also be getting phone calls from us and we will be wanting to hear about all the fantastic things you have been up to.
First mini challenge, I would like you to post on the year 3 google classroom page some interesting facts about this date, what happened today in history? Get researching and let us know.
Here is a fantastic resource to help you with you poems.
I've been seeing some interesting poems and look forward to even more coming our way. Today's challenge is to make a shape poem.
I would like you to make a poem in the shape of something winter related. (so the theme needs to be wintery too)
My challenge to you also, is to try and get some Onomatopoeia into it please!
I've been seeing some real efforts with maths, today i would like you to keep going with the Subtraction work. Miss Mohamed has made you some worksheets to have a go at.
Don't worry if you can't print them off, just write down the calculations on a piece of paper.
I want to see your methods.
If you want to post any issues you are having then you can always contact us on google classroom as many children have already been doing.
We have been looking in class at the different religions present around the UK.
Many of us were amazed to find that Islam was not the most popular religion in the UK, but as we looked further than our own community we realised there are lots of different beliefs.
I have posted a quick video to remind us about the Religious makeup of the UK.
I was really inspired by one of the poems that was sent in to us about Diwali from 3C.
Go check it out on the google classroom.
So today's task is a reading task too, but I want you to make a comparison between a Religion we know and a Hinduism.
I have posted a video below to help you with some key facts about Hinduism, but you might want to go and research some extra details yourself.
On your sheet you should have one side for similarities and on the other side differences.
If you are Muslim, you may want to choose Islam to compare against Hinduism, if you have no religion then compare no religion with Hinduism.
You must compare your choice with Hinduism.
Can't wait to see your research.
Friday 20th November 2020
Hello, hello, hello children! We hope you are all well and not too bored. How could you possibly be bored with all this lovely work? Scroll down through the Year 3 page to find some reading, writing, drawing and math.
A LIST POEM get its name from the fact that most of it is made up of a long list! Here is an example:
This list poem does not have any rhyming words, any alliteration, any similes or onomatopoeia but it's still a poem! It does have repetition because most lines start with the word 'A', and it is very, very imaginative!
I'd like you to have a go at writing your own LIST POEM entitled:
Ten Things Found in my Teachers Pocket
Let your imagination run wild. You don't have to just list normal objects like tissues, plasters and pens, you could include sounds and feelings. Think about what teachers do everyday and jot down lots of words and phrases first. Here are some to get you started:
kindness coffee shouting explaining words cubes
When you have finished you could email them to us or post them up on google classroom if you have access. It'd be great to see what you can do.
As part of Anti-Bullying week, have a think about what you look for in a good friend.
Always try your very best to be a good friend.
I know that earlier this week Mr Jordan demonstrated adding and subtracting money, using a number line. Here are some worksheets where you will have to use the same skills. You don't have to work through all three worksheets but choose one that is appropriate for you.
Don't forget, to understand how much change you should get you need to WORK OUT THE DIFFERENCE between how much you need to pay and the amount of money you actually hand over.
Working out change from 50p
Why don't you have a go at collecting some leaves and making a picture of a hedgehog, like this:
Use the internet to research 5 FACTS about hedgehogs that you didn't know before. Write them down on the back of your picture.
Thursday 19th November 2020
Good morning Year 3. It has been lovely seeing all the work you have been completing. Please keep uploading your work on google classroom or you can email it to the Year 3 address.
Remember to join the Year 3 google classroom the code is ndct2aw.
Today we would like you to create your own acrostic poem about Autumn. An acrostic poem is where the first letter of each sentence makes a word that is related to a theme. Our theme will be Autumn.
Here are some examples of some acrostic poems about different themes.
Today we will looking at subtracting a 3 digit number by a 1 digit number - Well done to Salah for uploading his maths work yesterday!!!

For google classroom login you need your b number followed by @anglesey.bham.sch.uk
The year 3 code is
So sorry to have to say goodbye to guys once more, please make the most of the time at home and work. You need to keep pushing yourself so you can be the best!
I will be running over a few videos we have already seen to recap some of the key skills we have been working on in class.
I have shown these videos before but it won't harm you having another look to recap the work we have been doing in class.
Here is a video looking at how we calculate change and there is a challenge for you to have a go at too.
We've been writing poems over the past couple of weeks at school. I am going to set you a little challenge to write and perform your own Autumn poem.
Features of poems.
Rhythm - think about the syllables in the line to make a beat (remember that songs are poetry)
Rhyme - When words sound same. We normally rhyme the words that are at the end of the line, fine, dine, shine!
Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition....
Alliteration- This is where we have the same sounds at the start of words.... The big boy bounces his blue ball.
Similes - This is where we compare on thing to another. (It's as easy as pie)
Onomatopoeia - These are words that sound like what they are saying... so BANG actually sounds like a bang or buzz sounds like a bee.
Your task over the next few days is to use all the amazing Autumn language we've been building up to write and perform your own poem. If you just want to send the poem in, that's fine, but if you want to video it that would be even better.
Here's some inspiration for you.
The Golden Blanket.
By Mr Jordan.
Crunch, snap, rustle. Shuffle and crack,
Those Autumn sounds are coming back.
Leaves are falling all around,
There’s a golden blanket on the ground.
Wild wind whips among the trees,
No nectar left for the buzzing bees.
A lonely squirrel digs a nut in the ground,
I wonder if it will ever be found.
Sunlight shimmers on the morning frost,
The warmth of summer is all but lost.
An icy chill sweeps through the air,
I shiver and chatter and feel so bare.
Fireworks crackle and light the sky,
Halloween, Bonfire night and remembrance go by.
And soon that chilling rain will turn to snow,
Reindeers are coming, Ho Ho Ho!
It's Oxford Reading buddy time!!
Big Congratulations to last weeks winner.

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

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.
