Year 3 Home Learning – Wednesday 10th February
Welcome to Wednesday’s blog! This week’s value is kindness. You can show kindness by helping somebody at home, saying something kind and considerate, or by doing something nice for someone else, without expecting anything in return. Don’t forget to send your nominations by the end of the day Thursday!
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 4 and 5 of The Switcher. Rocky experiences his first day at school as a boy and has an argument with the Deputy Headteacher! Then Rocky forgets he is a human when he comes face to face with a parrot. Test your understanding of each chapter by completing the Quiz on Purple Mash.
As it is the end of term, we are continuing to consolidate our learning. 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 D3 Quiz.
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 interpret pictograms. This means you will be looking closely at the different pictograms and answering questions about the data. Don’t forget to look closely at the key so you know how much each symbol represents. See if you can use mathematical language when you are explaining your answers during Reasoning and Problem Solving. Watch the video to help explain how to interpret data. https://vimeo.com/500378019
PSHE – Online Safety
Online safety refers to the act of staying safe online. This includes all devices that have access to the internet such as PCs, laptops, smartphones, tablets, and game consoles. It is so important to stay safe online and for children to know how to protect themselves from harm (leaking personal information, unsafe communications, cyber-bullying, etc.). There are so many resources that provide useful information and to help explain the importance of online safety such as the BBC website and SaferInternet.org.
Today we would like you to choose one of these activities related to online learning:
- Create an internet safety day poster that could be displayed around the school to help younger children.
- Create an acrostic poem for SMART (Stay safe, don’t Meet up, Accepting files, Reliable, Tell someone). In an acrostic poem, the first letter of each line spells a word. The word is the subject of the poem.
- On the Internet a digital footprint is the word used to describe the trail, traces or “footprints” that people leave online. Every time you go online you leave a trail. Draw around your foot to create a digital footprint. In the middle write all of your online activity (e.g. YouTube, TikTok, gaming).
- Watch one of these videos and write down any new information or important facts you have found out. https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/44074704
