Welcome back Year 3! I hope you have all had a great half term and a good rest. Our remote learning will be exactly the same as before and I know you will all do an amazing job as you have been this term already. 

Today please could you email me your Maths, English and History work.


L.O: to tell time using am/pm


We are starting a new unit in our Maths No Problem books today all about time. Today’s lesson is all about using am (morning) and pm (afternoon) so make sure you think carefully about which tasks are completed in the day and which are in the night. Watch the video below to remind yourself of some of the basics of time.

To start with answer your ‘In Focus’ question which is on the first page. As we would normally discuss this with our partners at school, see if there is an adult or older brother or sister to talk to about it. Please use the box on this page record your answer and methods.


Next look at the ‘Guided Practice’ which shows you some of the different style questions. I have left the answers on the worksheet so you can see the setting out and how to go about answering these types of questions.


Now it is your turn! Have a go at the ‘Independent Practice’ which is a copy of the worksheet that you would have completed in your MNP workbooks at school.


If you feel up for it, have a go at the challenge! I have also included an extra worksheet which practises telling the time using o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to if you would like if you would like to.


Please could you email this piece of work to me.


L.O: to identify types of poetry  


Our new topic in English this term is one of my favourites… poetry! Today we will be looking at the different types of poems that there are.


The first two slides are examples of ‘tongue twisters’, see if you can work out why they are called this. Have a go at saying them first as a slow pace and then quicker and see what happens.


The third and fourth slides are examples of a ‘riddle’. Read the riddles and see what you think they are about. I will let you know what the answers are tomorrow. Read the riddles again and see if you can spot any patterns that there are.


The last slide is an example of a ‘nonsense poem’. Think about what the word nonsense means and why the poem ‘Night Mer’ is nonsense.


For your task today I would like you to write five different tongue twister poems using your name and the names of your family members. Tongue twisters use alliteration which is when a group of words begin with the same letter. For example: Miss Smith sees shining stars shoot past fast.   


Please could you email this piece of work to me. 


Although we are in lockdown, the expectation is for the children to still read 3 times a week for 10 minutes. Below is instructions and a link to oxford owl where an account has been created to provide the children with some ebooks.

For reading today we are going to be reading a new book on Fiction Express called, ‘My Clueless Dad’ by Cethan Leahy. I have access to the amount of time it takes for you to read the chapter and scores for any of the online quizzes you complete.


We will read the first chapter called, ‘A New Case’, so please select this as you open the book. At the end, vote on what you think she should do. If you would like to, complete the multiple-choice quiz.    


Today’s questions are from reading domain 2a - Give/explain the meaning of words in context

  1. Find two clues that tell you Monsieur LeGrand is worried.
  2.  How does Detective Sugar feel about having his daughter at work with him? How do you know?
  3.  What does this phrase tell us “I… I… I…”


L.O: to find out how transport changed during the Industrial Revolution


This half term we will be completing a history topic within our theme of ‘Let’s Move’. The title of this unit is called ‘The Railway Revolution’.


Look through the slides, can you imagine what life would be like without aeroplanes? Cars? Trains? In the early 18th century, none of these existed so think about how people used to travel. What do you think were the problems with travelling in these ways? Look at the next slide to see if you thought of these. Heavy goods were often transported by boat. What are the problems with relying on rivers and the sea to transport heavy goods? Again, the following slide has suggestions.


Look at how transport changed during the Industrial Revolution through the British history timeline and the timeline with some important transport developments during this period.


Over this unit, we will be finding out more about how transport and travel changed during this period. On the worksheet read the timeline and come up with three questions that you would like to know more about to do with this topic.

L.O: to use basic body percussion


We are back with Mr Palekar on the Oak National Academy! This unit of videos is all about timbre, this means the sounds made by instruments or humans. For lesson one we will be looking at basic body percussion. As usual, make sure you are somewhere where you will not disturb anyone as you will be clapping and tapping away!


You will begin by clapping the rhythm to get you warmed up and then you will go through the definition of body percussion and how it is used. After you will play the game ‘Don’t clap this one back’, see if you can remember the rules from previous videos we have watched. Finally you will learn your first body percussion piece ‘Boom snap clap’.
