DT:

Today we will be making spinners and exploring parachutes complete what you can at home using materials around the house.

Task 1: Today the children were asked to make simple spinners from cardboard discs with a pencil pushed through their centres. Explore different materials to improve the spinners and trial them on different surfaces. Does the surface affect how long they spin? Which material produced the best spinner? Should the end of the shaft be sharp or blunt?

Task 2: The children went on the playground and experienced what happens with a large parachute. They described what they can feel happening. They were then asked to make mini parachutes using a selection of materials, such as plastic bags, nylon and paper. We tied small figures or plasticine to the parachute and watched what happens when the items are dropped from different heights.

Reading comprehension – Tom’s exciting morning.

Good morning Year Three.

I wish I could teach you all this week and get to know you properly. For this morning I have attached some of the activities I had planned for us to do.

If you can have a go at these activities at home and bring them in next week so we can use them for our displays in September that would be great.

The first thing that I would like you to do is write down a goal that you would like to achieve by the end of the year. This could be anything from: I would like to learn my 3x tables to I would like to learn how to swim by the end of the year.

We will work together to achieve these goals and you can always ask for support.

If you could create a box around your goal or make into a tag shape like the image below and add some decorations around the outside of your writing. I will laminate these and add a string to them so that we can refer back to them throughout the year.

From Miss Jones

 

 

You all know our three school rules:

  • Be ready
  • Be safe
  • Be respectful

We our introducing a fourth school rule – Be kind

Have a think, what does it mean to be kind?

Watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAo4-2UzgPo

Can you create a poster with the title ‘Be kind’? In your poster you could include drawings that demonstrate people being kind; you could also write down ways that you can show kindness to other people.

Once you have completed the ‘Be kind’ poster, you can create a poster for the other school rules.

PicNews:

 

The government is trying to encourage greener farming methods and believes that the next

generation of farmers will be best equipped to make these changes. The government hopes younger farmers will be more open to new nature-friendly farming ideas and would be more likely to set up other businesses such as campsites to diversify how farmland is utilised. It also wants to encourage sustainable approaches to farming which can help get the best out of the farm at the same time as caring for the environment.

 

Things to talk about at home…

Have you ever visited a farm, or do you know any farmers? If so, what do they farm?

Thinking about the role of a farmer, which part of the jobs do you think would be interesting and which do you think would be challenging?

In a typical day, can you think of how many ways you have relied on farmers and agriculture?

E.g., for your cereal at breakfast, to your drink of hot chocolate at the end of the day.

Think back to the timeline you created yesterday. Today we will be using this plan to write a recount of the seal’s life in the story.

 

What is a recount?

A recount is a retelling of an event. It is written in past tense because the event has already happened. Today you will be writing as the seal so you will need to use first person.

Can you also use:

  • Time conjunctions
  • Organise writing into three paragraphs
  • Emotions and feelings
  • Conjunctions to join ideas together

Listen up to page 8 of our class book Counting on Katherine.  

Can you use the things we found out about our character Katherine yesterday to write a character description?

What did we find out?

She loved to count.
She was very bright.
She skipped three years of school.
She loved to imagine what was in space.
She had a brother
She wasn’t allowed to go to the local high school.

Model how to turn some of the facts into sentences, linking phrases with conjunctions focus on ‘and’.  Also emphasise the use of expanded noun phrases and the use of the past tense.
e.g.

Katherine Johnson skipped three years of school because she was so bright. Her knowledge and interest in the universe fired her imagination so she wanted to learn as much as possible. She burned with fury when she discovered she couldn’t go to high school.

Continue the description of Katherine. Ensure that conjunctions and the past tense are used.
