Year 3 Home Learning -Term 4 Week 2
Tuesday 2nd March
Welcome to Tuesday’s blog! This is our last week of online learning and we are so excited to see you next week. Here is an outline of the work we would like you to complete today:
Practice your phonics knowledge by using www.phonicshero.com. Phonics Hero has fun and interactive games that build reading and spelling skills gradually and teaches the 44 different sounds. If your login is not in your child’s contact book, please message your teacher for the login details!
Read Chapter 3 of A Sheep Dip to India. William chases the monkeys and in doing so meets an amazing girl called Chetna, who seems more than a bit familiar to him. She says she'll help him track down the monkeys, but an angry porcupine has other ideas. Test your understanding of the chapter by completing the 2Do Quiz.
Access the 2Do ‘Making Sentences Interesting’ on Purple Mash. Create noun phrases by selecting an adjective and a noun. Remember, an adjective is a describing word, and a noun is a naming word (person, place, object).
Use www.letterjoin.co.uk to support today’s handwriting practice. Log on to your account with the Username: wk25530 and Password: home.
Today we will practice the correct orientation of the letter ‘e’. Search ‘Magic Words’ to practice joining and forming the letter correctly. Then use the writing resource below to practice words and sentences containing ‘ee’. Don’t forget to start with your pencil on the line to form an ascender!
If you haven’t listened to Chapters 12, 13 and 14, watch this video to access Krindlekrax. Today we are learning to understand the character Corky Pigeon in a little more detail. Begin by making notes on everything you have found out about Corky. Then answer these three questions.
- What do we know about him?
- What do we think we know?
- What would you like to know?
Watch the video to take you through today’s learning.
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.
This week we will continue our learning on measurement. Today we are learning to add lengths given in different units of measurement. You will need to convert measurements to the same unit of length to be able to add more efficiently. How many millimetres are in a centimetre? How many centimetres are in a metre?

Today we are learning about the term’s herbivore, carnivore, and omnivore. Can you remember this from Year 2? Find an animal that belongs to each of these groups and tell me where they get their nutrition from. E.g., A panda is a herbivore as they get their nutrition from eating bamboo shoots, leaves and roots.
Your second task is to create a food chain on where animals get their food from. This should include a producer, primary consumer, a secondary consumer, and a tertiary consumer. Look at the resource below to help explain today’s topic learning.
