Year 3 - Jade Class
WEEK BEGINNING 20.07.2020
So... we have reached the last three days of the summer term and what a strange term it has been! Well done to all of the children who have kept up with their home learning. This will really help you when you come back to school in September. We have missed you all so much and can’t wait to see your smiling faces when you return.
Thank you to the children who have been using Purple Mash to keep in contact about their home learning. It has been so lovely finding out what you have been doing.
If you are able, start to collect together your favourite pieces of home learning and stick them into a file or scrapbook which you can then show to your teachers and classmates once we are able to when we return to school. Plus, it will be something for you to keep forever – so make it is beautiful as you can!
This week try to complete some more tasks from our “Comings and Goings” topic plan to prepare you for your transition back to school. Remember to keep practising your basic skills daily to keep those brains sharp (even over the summer holidays if you have the time) and do some reading every day. Use some ideas from the summer reading newsletter to make reading even more fun! Earn Children’s University points by joining the “Silly Squad” summer reading challenge:
Read in strange places; read anything; read anywhere and see what fun it can be! Remember to keep a log of all of your reading to share with your new teacher.
Here are some ideas to help you with your basic skills:
Every day, you can:
- Read something for pleasure.
- Write something interesting.
- Do some exercise.
- Have a conversation with someone.
- Practise your times tables in different ways, including using TT Rockstars
- Use Spellingframe to practise some of your spellings and play spelling games.
- Practise writing basic letters and focus on writing your ascenders and descenders correctly: (b, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, p, q, t, y).
Your tasks for this week are:
When using the internet, remember how to stay safe! If you see anything that you do not like, share with an adult.
Keep practising your joined handwriting over the summer holidays, Here is a reminder of how to form each letter:
Try writing the days of the week, the months of the year, the names of the people in your family (including your pets) and any other words that you can think of. Remember to use capital letters for all proper nouns.
Take one last visit this term to the Oak National Academy:
Complete any of the English lessons that you haven’t already done.
Keep reading over the summer break. Look at the Reading newsletter for many ideas to make reading fun! Remember to keep a record of your reading to share with your teacher when you return to school in September.
Keep visiting Spellingframe at:
and practise all of the spellings from the year 3 and year 4 word lists. It will be great to be able to show off to your new teacher how much your spelling has improved through lockdown!
Try writing your spellings in rainbow colours or fancy lettering. Use strategies to help you to remember them – such as word pyramids, quick-write or word shapes.
Write about your memories from year 3. Which topic was your favourite and why? How have you changed and what have you got better at? Add as much detail as you can.
Write all of your numbers from 1 – 1000. Make sure you form your digits correctly! You might need to take a few days to complete this!
Write these as numbers:
One hundred and twenty-one.
Two hundred and seven.
Five hundred and seventy-one.
One thousand, two hundred and two.
Now write these numbers in words:
Keep practising the four rules – make up and solve your own number sentences using addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication.
Can you add and subtract 3 and 4 digit numbers? Remember to show your working out.
NON-SCREEN BASED FUN ACTIVITIES:
In addition, we are sending you some non-screen based fun activities to carry out throughout the summer break. If you complete any of these activities, try to take a photograph, draw a picture or write about them. Stick your work into your scrapbook so that you will have a record of all of the things that you did throughout lockdown. This will be something that you can keep forever.
Have a great summer break Year 3. Keep safe...and keep learning!
See you in September!
