Year 3 Online Learning
Welcome to the Year 3 Online Learning page
Happy New Year. Not the start we were hoping for! We have added the daily timetable we will be following in school. Please continue to read daily and practise times tables. We are hoping to support some of their learning with recorded lesson inputs featuring the Year 3 Teachers. These will be uploaded to SEESAW. Please continue to upload work to seesaw where we can value it. If you have any problems, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will respond as soon as possible.

Spring Term 1 Week 2
This half term our English work will be based around the book 'Jeremy Button' by Jennifer Uman.
You can see the book being read by clicking on the image.
You can read through the book yourself by clicking here.
This week we will be creating a poem with the theme of Jemmy's voyage across the ocean. As well as the instructions on our webpage you will each have been sent a selection of videos on SeeSaw to help explain the tasks.
Today we are collecting vocabulary that we can use later in our poem. Look at the video and listen to the sounds, you may wish to scroll ahead a few times as the video is very long and the scenes change so you can see lots of different, ‘under the sea,’ images.
You can also use the page in the story from Jemmy’s crossing to help gather ideas. I want you to use your senses to gather lots of descriptive vocabulary.
Think about how Jemmy is feeling crossing the ocean. Is it warm or cold, windy or wet? What can you see in the world below? What does the ocean sound like?I have made a template for you to use and there are some ideas to get you started.
Now that you have many great words, we are going to organise them into word classes. You can use the template or draw your own to organise your words into adjectives, nouns, verbs and adverbs.
If it looks like you have an empty box, this is a good point to think of some more words in that particular class.
You can also use this session to upscale some of your language by using a thesaurus to improve a boring adjective. You can find a thesaurus online or if you are using a laptop, select your word and press ‘shift+F7’ and alternate words come up on the right of your screen. Remember to check that the words still make sense in the same context.
Challenge: Can you use your new vocabulary to improve this poem?
Our poem will have a chorus that is going to repeat between verses. Much like our Halloween poem, we are going to challenge ourselves to keep to a set number of syllables for each line.
You can choose the number of syllables in your line but they must stay the same for each line of the chorus. Here is an example, I have used eight syllables in each of my lines. It is trickier than it looks, have a go at making two lines and challenge yourself to a third or fourth, they don’t have to rhyme although I have given it a go.
Today we are going to have a go at writing the verses for our poem. These do not need to be a set length or rhyme but we are going to use different word classes to be descriptive.
Decide on one of your nouns from Tuesday.
Use an adjective to describe this noun.
Then take a verb to show what this noun might be doing and use an adverb to describe the action.
I have built an example here.
Have a go at writing two or three verses, but you can write as many as you like. Try and keep each verse to a theme much like we would with a paragraph. For example Jemmy’s thoughts on being on the ship, the world under the sea, the weather on the crossing.
Today is an opportunity to publish your poem. You can do this any way you like; you can write a neat copy with a creative boarder, you can type a copy and find suitable images online, you can perform your poem and upload it to SeeSaw, you can even challenge yourself to learn a verse and a chorus.
We look forward to reading, and listening to all of your poems.
Please ask your child which adult did their spelling test and give the matching spellings. If you are unsure, please email us. Spelling tests take place on Tuesday and new spellings are issued on Wednesdays.

Please follow the link to explore Oxford Owl. It includes a range of coloured spot books that match those that children read in school. If your child is a free reader, please encourage them to continue choosing books to read from home.
This week, we are continuing to look at multiplication and division. Please watch the videos on seesaw and see the examples below to see which method we would like the children to use.
No exchanging: Exchanging:
|Mrs Chance's Set|
|Monday - Multiplying 2 digit by 1 digit (teen numbers)||Activity|
|Tuesday - Multiplying 2 digit by 1 digit (no exchange)||Activity|
|Wednesday - Multiplying 2 digit by 1 digit (exchanging)||Activity|
|Thursday - Multiplying 2 digit by 1 digit (exchanging)||Activity|
|Friday - Consolidation check and challenge||
|Ms Jones's Set||
|Monday - Multiply 2 digit by 1 digit (exchanging)|
|Tuesday - Problems 2 digit by 1 digit (exchanging)|
Wednesday - Written multiplication problems
Because it is a word document click 'view' and then 'edit document' to correct the format.
|Thursday - Multiplication mastery questions|
|Friday - Fruit tray mixed problems|
Every week we test TTRockstars and set children the next times table. In order to pass the table, children need to complete the whole sheet in 3 minutes with less than 3 errors. Please find the practise sheets below. They are in the order of completion:
|Week 1 - Pushes and Pulls||
|Week 2 - Faster and slower||
|Week 3 - Scrapyard Challenge||
|Week 4 - Magnet Strength||
|Week 5 - Magnetic Poles|
|Week 6 - Marvellous Magnets||
Key question: Which biome is the easiest to live in?
We are improving our knowledge and understanding of four biomes and we will be able to identify, describe compare and evaluate them.
Lesson 1: Where in the world is South America and what is it like?
Can you find South America on a map of the world? You can now use these maps to locate the continents and oceans bordering South America and label them on your blank map. Can you now use the maps to label any human and physical features like capital cities, mountain ranges, deserts, rainforests and rivers?
Lesson 2: Where in South America is Peru and what is it like?
Can you locate Peru using key vocabulary including its position within South America, bordering countries and oceans?
Looking at a map of the world can you plot and plan a journey from the UK to Peru. Don’t forget to use compass points to show directions and make sure you mention countries and oceans you cross.
Lesson 3: Human and Physical features
Can you annotate a blank Peru map with human and physical features, time zones, cities, climate zones, Amazon source and the course it runs?
Lesson 4: Population
Have a go at organising these biomes into a diamond nine, depending on how well populated the biomes are. Start with the one you think is the most populated at the top and least at the bottom. Then decide how you will organize the next three rows.
Lesson 5: Biomes
Which biome covers most of Peru?
Look at the biome and climate maps and decide which biome covers most of Peru.
Can you define what the words biome and climate mean?
|Week 1 This half term we will be using scratch again to code. Click the link here to download Scratch Online.||Watch the video clip on seesaw to help you. Then have a go at making your own square. Can you make different sizes and colours?|
|Week 2 If you have saved last week's work, then you need to open that and edit it as needed.||Watch the second video on seesaw. You will make a pattern using your 'square sequence' as well as using a 'repeat' command (algorithm).|
|Week 3 Can you work out how to make a triangle?||Using the code blocks you used to make a square, can you change the code to make an equilateral triangle? The inside angle is 60 degrees and the outside angle is 120 degrees. Can you make a pattern again? Can you change the colour of each triangle?|
Can you make a new program that makes a pentagon and hexagon? What patterns can you make? You will need the angles below:
When using the PowerPoints, make sure you put it onto 'slideshow' and turn up the volume.
Week 1 - Meet my family
Week 2 - My pets
Week 3 - Body Parts
Week 4 - Numbers to 30
Week 5 - Meet and greet
Week 6 - Months of the year
Week 7 - Colours
