  • what actions can you include
  • how can you change the volume of your voice (how loud or quiet)
  • the speed of how your are reading your poem (some parts may need to be read slower)

Match the cups to how full they are.

Have a go at reading the scales – watch clip to help you if needed.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFTlete-nMM&feature=youtu.be

Find different size containers/cups and record how much each one holds using the jug to measure. Record these down – remember to put ml after each one.

If you don’t have a jug you can mark lines on the empty ones on the sheet.

 https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9h2tfr 

 

Then go on a sound hunt around your house  - what new or old sounds can you hear?

Use the sheet attached to record your ideas. Once you have your sounds, please have a go at turning it into your own poem!

Maths 

Focus/Objective - To measure accurately in cm or mm

( you will need a ruler)

 

This is a great activity to do at home! Find as many objects that you can in your house and measure the length of them using cm to start and then mm. First of all measure to the nearest cm or mm. Write down the name of the object and the length of the objects that you have measured. You can record this in the table below. 

Then use your ruler to measure the lengths of lines sheet.

Can you then measure more accurately in cm eg  3.2cm.

Do you then notice a pattern between cm and mm ? ( To change cm - mm you x 10 and to change mm - cm you divide by 10 )

 

Challenge - changing cm - mm  ( see challenge sheet below)

English - Performance Poetry

 

This week the children will be focusing on performance poetry. They will think about what makes a good performance, before thinking about creating and performing their own version of a poem. 

 

Your task for today is to watch a selection of poems being performed (see links below). Think about which one you like best and why? Are they similar in any way? Do they all rhyme? How does the performer engage you? How do they use their voice and bodies when performing? Can you make a list of all the things that you think makes good performance poetry.

PSHE 

 

Think about a situation over Christmas where you felt sad or angry. You can either draw a picture or write words on how you felt. Think about what you could have done to make your or the other person feel better. Were their any positives with the situation that happened? You can draw or write the positives or what you did.

Think about who can help you deal with a negative situation, or worries you may have. You might want to read the colour monster:

READING

 

Attached below is a poem reading comprehension ( with answers) There are 3 sets of questions. The ones with 1 star at the bottom of the page are easier than the one with 3 stars. I would recommend starting with 2 stars and if this is too tricky ( after a couple of questions) then try the 1 star, or if it's easy try the 3 stars.

 

If your child struggles with reading get them to read some of their book to you and ask them questions about what they have read eg What colour was the boys coat ? Did the boy go to the park or the beach?

Welcome to Year 3!

During our first few weeks we will focus on settling the children back into school and ensuring that they have the skills and knowledge required to be successful in Year 3.

 

Year 3 Team

Orangutan Class will be taught by Mrs Manston (Monday) and Mrs Tillin (Tuesday - Friday)

Panda Class will be taught by Mrs Goddard (Monday and Tuesday) and Miss Jones (Wednesday - Friday)

Mrs McMullan, Mrs Carter and Mrs Todd will support the children in class as well as run afternoon booster groups.

 

Please don't hesitate to approach your class teacher if you have any concerns, problems or questions. Each child has a Home School Book which you can use to communicate messages in or you can ring the office to arrange a phone appointment. 

 

General Reminders

Water bottles:

Please ensure that your child have a named water bottle in school each day that it is filled with fresh water. A reminder that juice and squash are not allowed in class.

Uniform:

Please ensure all of your child’s clothing is labelled. All named clothing is returned instantly, whereas everything unnamed goes to lost property.

Pencil cases:

Please do not send your child to school with a pencil case. We provide all the necessary equipment as we do not have large enough trays for pencil cases. If your child is writing in pen, we will provide them with a handwriting pen which will be replaced when the old one runs out. 

 

Physical Education

Our P.E. day this year is Tuesday. Children will need to wear their P.E. kit to school on this day. They can wear tracksuit bottoms/leggings and their school jumper over their kit on colder days.

PE kit:

-Plain light blue polo shirt (with no visible logos).

-Black or navy shorts for PE.

-White socks.

PE and Jewellery:

Long hair must be tied up. If ear-rings are worn they should be taken out for PE. If they are newly pierced please provide tape to cover the ear-rings until such a time as they can be removed. Only studs should be worn.

The only other item of jewellery permitted in school is a wrist watch. This also needs to be removed for PE.

Homework

 

The children have all now been given a green homework book. In this homework book is their TTRockstars login, a homework treat stamp sheet, and their weekly spellings.

 

Each week the children are expected to do:

  • 5 or more reads, recorded in their reading journal
  • 80%+ in their spelling test (or evidence of sufficient practise in their homework books – we suggest at least 5 practises each week)
  • 15 games completed on TTRockstars

 

The children need to complete all of these things each week to earn their homework stamp.

Homework books and reading journals both need to be handed in each Monday for homework to be checked and given out, so please help to remind your children to bring them in each week.

Year 3 Survey

 

We hope your child has enjoyed their first few weeks at the Juniors. Please complete our survey.
