Year 3 Online Learning

 Welcome to the Year 3 Online Learning page.                     

We will be updating the page with new activities at the beginning of each week. We look forward to seeing what you have been getting up to and would love for you to share your work with us on Seesaw. On this app/webpage, we will be able to view children’s work/images etc. and can comment on what they have produced. This will also be a platform for children to share what they are getting up to outside of the learning. Please remember that what you share on Seesaw will be shared with the whole year, not just the class teachers.

The tasks we have listed are just suggestions, we hope they give you a starting point.  Feel free to tailor them to your child’s needs or interests, and to complete as many as you wish.  Home learning should be fun!

We have all of the logins for individuals on file so please don't hesitate to contact us if you need to. You will also receive a Maths and English exercise book for children to complete their work in. This will all be given out on Friday 20th March.

We are available to answer any questions you may have via our email addresses:

Week Beginning 30th March 2020

We recommend tuning into Joe Wicks PE lessons everyday at 9am to kick start the day! Enjoy! 

 

If you need a 5 minute move during your day, here is another short session: 

Writing

This week we have had a new discovery! A tiny dragon…. Here are some ideas to get you thinking about this little fellow. You can use him as a stimulus for your own stories or adventure or just think about some descriptive sentences. We can’t wait to see what he gets up to!

A tiny dragon

  • Where is it from?
  • Why is it so small?
  • Are there more like him?
  • Where does he live?
  • How will you look after it?
  • Will you keep it a secret or tell someone?
  • What is it called?
  • Is it magic?  What magic can it do?

I like to imagine that it is a really small dragon which you can keep in your pocket but when you need to it can grow huge so that you can ride it.

We have also uploaded some grammar activities if you want to give them a go. There are three levels of challenge so you decide which you want to go for and there are some answers provided if you want to check how you got on but remember to give it a go first.
