Year 3 Home Learning – Tuesday 9th February
We hope you are having lots of fun in the snow! We have loved the photographs on your portfolios of your snowmen and enjoying yourself outside.
Here is an outline of the work we would like you to complete today:
Today’s grammar lesson focuses on the prefix -un. Prefixes are a group of letters that change the meaning of a word when they are added to the start. Most prefixes mean a similar thing when they’re added to different words, e.g., unhappy, unfair, unlocked. This is set as a 2Do on Purple Mash called Prefix Magic.
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 The Switcher. Ben finds life as a dog can be fun, frustrating, and very embarrassing especially when he needs to go to the toilet! Test your understanding of the chapter by competing the Quiz on Purple Mash.
Today’s activity is another recap of this term’s spellings. Test your understanding of the different spellings that we have looked at over the last few weeks by completing the Y3 SPR1 WK6 D2 Quiz.

Today we will practice the correct orientation of the letter ‘c’. Search ‘Magic Words’ to practice joining and forming the letter correctly. Then use the writing resource below to practice words and sentences containing ‘cc’. Don’t forget to start with your pencil on the line to form an ascender!
This week we are going to read a new book called Until I Met Dudley by Roger McGough. First read ‘I thought I knew how a dishwater worked’. The little girl thinks all the dishes are cleaned by cats who lick the plates and climb into the machine through a specially designed cat-flap! Today we would like you to use your imagination to write your own version on how a dishwasher works. I wonder what animal you may find in the dishwasher. How do they get in? Watch the video for more ideas!
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 learning to draw pictograms. A pictogram is a chart that uses pictures or symbols to represent data, so you don’t have to look at lots of numbers. You have to read pictograms carefully so you understand what the symbols mean. All pictograms should have a key. A key shows you what each symbol represents. Watch this video to take you through the learning. https://vimeo.com/500379996
Wind chimes are a type of percussion instrument constructed from suspended tubes, rods, bells or other objects that are often made of metal or wood. Today we would like you to design your own wind chime but made from different metal objects. This could include items such as keys, cutlery, or tin cans.
Take a look at the resource below for some inspiration. Can you design your own? Draw your design on plain paper and then label the materials. Don’t forget to use a ruler for your labelling! I wonder what different metal objects you will use.
