Year 3 Home Learning – Thursday 28th January
Welcome to Thursday’s blog! This week’s value is respect. You can show respect by listening to others (grown-ups and peers), saying kind words, or showing good manners by saying please and thank you. You can nominate your child by sending your teacher a message or uploading an example onto your child’s portfolio.
Here is an outline of the work we would like you to complete today.
Practice your phonics knowledge by completing the 2Do on Purple Mash. Use your segmenting and blending skills to spell words containing the phonemes ai, ow and oa.
Read Chapter 6 of Alien Hotel. It's party time at the alien hotel. But Mr Blazz is the king of party spoilers and he is on the warpath! Complete the quiz for Chapter 6 to test your understanding. This is also set as a 2Do on Purple Mash.
Listen to the video to find out about today’s learning. Begin by reading the final chapter: Chapter 5: The Iron Man’s challenge by listening to the audio or written version. Imagine you are a journalist, and you have the opportunity to interview the Iron Man on his encounter with the Space-Being. We would like you to write a list of questions that you would like to ask the Iron Man about his recent battle. Remember to include capital letters, question marks, and the 5ws (who, what, when, where, why).
Begin by working out the four challenges in the maths starter. Don’t forget to show your working out! Then move on to Fluency, Reasoning and Problem Solving.
Today we are beginning a new unit of work - money! Today we would like you to practice counting money (pence) using your multiplication skills. Can you count in steps of 2s, 5s and 10s? Watch the video for more information and to take you through the learning.
What are magnets used for? Use your own knowledge or explore this website to find out more. Today we would like you to create a fact file about the uses of magnets. Fact files should include a range of pictures, an eye-catching title, and interesting facts. You could even include a ‘did you know…?’ sentence. Take a look at the example below to give you some ideas on how to lay out your fact file.
