Week beginning 6th July 2020
Hello Year 3. I can't believe it's nearly the end of our school year. I'm so disappointed we don't get to spend our last couple of weeks together as you are a lovely class and lovely children. I am looking forward to seeing some of you next week and all of you again in September. As I am in school next week, I have set enough work this week to continue into next week. If you require more please e mail me.
Reading - please read the information about Anglo Saxon Kings then answer the questions. One star is the easiest and three stars is the challenger.
Spelling - This week we will be spelling homophones. Can you remember what a homophone is? First discuss the meaning of each word with someone else in your family. Your challenge is to create a sentence that contains both or all homophones. e.g. He'll find that his heel won't heal.
Homophones: groan/grown; there/their; wear/where; rain/rein/reign; he'll/heel/heal; plain/plane.
Writing - please continue with your work on The Truth about Trolls.
Measurement - In maths this week we will be measuring to the nearest millimetre and learning about volume and capacity. When using a ruler, remember to start from 0 rather than the end of the ruler. Capacity is the total amount of liquid a container can hold. Volume is the actual amount of liquid in the container. There is 1000 millilitres (ml) in 1 litre (l). Try estimating the capacity of different containers before you start the activities. Does a teaspoon hold millilitres or litres?
This week you have some games to play to help you learn about magnetic force.
We continue our work on the Vikings, this week focusing on Anglo Saxon Kings.
This week we will revisit and learn a few new simple French conversation phrases.
I am sure you all have different feelings regarding coming back to school. This home activity will teach you about different feelings and why we need to express them.
