Year 3 Home Learning – Wednesday 13th January
A big well done for the work completed so far this week. Don’t forget to send your nominations for this week’s value of Honesty on Class Dojo. How have you demonstrated honesty this week?
Here is an outline of the work we would like you to complete today:
Today’s spelling challenge focuses on the prefix -super. Prefixes are a group of letters that change the meaning of a word when they are added to the start. Have a go at spelling words that begin with the prefix -super. This is set as a 2Do on Purple Mash (Y3 SPR1 WK2 – Quiz).
Read Chapter 3 of the Tale of Ostrich and a Very Long Neck. Then test your comprehension skills by accessing the Quiz. How well did you understand the story? This is also set as a 2Do on Purple Mash.
Continue reading chapter two until the point when the farmers decide they will have to do something for themselves. The text explains ‘They couldn’t call the police or the Army, because nobody would believe them about this Iron Monster. They would have to do something for themselves’. Imagine you are one of the farmers, what would you want to do with the Iron Man?
We would like you to write a persuasive piece of writing explaining your opinion. This video here explains the features of persuasive writing. Use these question prompts to help you:
- Why is the Iron Man a problem?
- Can you think of a solution to solve the problem?
- What would you do with the Iron Man?
Today we are dividing into equal groups of 8. Begin by working out the four challenges in the maths starter. Don’t forget to show your working out! Then move on to Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning. Draw pictures or circles to help you share equally. You can practice your multiplication and division skills by logging on to Times Tables Rockstars. If you have forgotten your login, just send us a message!
Today we would like you to think about a dream or ambition that is important to you. Begin by listening to the story ‘Me…Jane’ by Patrick McDonnell. This book shares the story of Jane Goodall when she was a child with her toy chimpanzee Jubilee, dreaming of working with animals. Her dreams eventually came true! I wonder what your hopes and dreams are for the future? What do you want to be when you grow up?
Use the flower template below to create a ‘Garden of Dreams’. Add a photograph or draw a picture of yourself in the centre of the flower. Now think carefully about your own dreams and goals and draw/write these on the petals of your flower. This could be school related or ambitions for the future.
