Year 3

Home Learning (week beginning 18th January 2021)
Monday 18th January
Good morning Year 3!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you are all ready for this week! I have uploaded a timetable of what our week will look like, this is just like our visual timetable in our classroom above the whiteboard. It is the PDF called 'WB 18th Jan' and this will help you to know what lessons we are going to be doing this week. For today though, this work is for Monday 18th January, but as explained in the newsletter, it is being released the evening before to allow time for your grown-ups to read through the work and prepare, if needed. I have attached a PDF of how to listen to audio on Powerpoint, this will be required for most lessons. All of these activities can be completed independently, so, if you can see that your grown-ups are busy doing their own work, please try work on your own as much as possible. All of the lessons are uploaded as a Powerpoint, they will need to be opened in the Powerpoint software/app or Apple Keynote to hear the audio. Lastly, please do not print any of these resources, all of the activities are to be answered within your home learning book.

As always, our jobs for today are: English, maths, spellings and this afternoon we are going to be doing geography and Spanish.

I have uploaded everything you need below:

English – today we are beginning our new reading and writing cycle, thinking about fairy tales.

Maths – in maths today, we are going to be thinking about scaling.

Spellings – please practise your spellings (sent on Thursday) either on The Spelling Shed or using your favourite method from the Spelling Menu.

Geography – in geography, we are going to be examining a range of different maps of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Spanish – in Spanish, we are going to be learning some new greetings and our numbers up to 10.

Last Monday, I sent out a little bank of additional activities that could be completed if all home learning activities were completed, they are still available should you wish to access any of them. However, please do not put pressure on yourself to complete all of these activities. We recognise that supporting home learning can sometimes be difficult, so should you have to prioritise any lessons please prioritise English, maths and SPaG activities. Please also try to spend some time, each day, on TTRS, The Spelling Shed and reading.

I have also uploaded a little poem called 'You' for all of you lovely children who we are missing lots and lots.

Have a great day!

Miss Gray
