Our topic for this term is all about different environments!

This video shows lots of different environments; rainforests, oceans, deserts, grasslands, polar regions to name a few.

I would like you to choose an environment to research and make a fact poster about. Think about things like…

  • What type of environment is it?
  • What type of climate does this environment experience?
  • What types of vegetation (plant life) grow in this environment?
  • What types of animal life live in this environment?
  • How do humans interact with and connect with this environment?

You can include all these things and more in your poster.

Try to use subheadings and other organisational devices that we have used in class and remember to plan, research, draft, edit and write.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Autumn Term

WB – 7th December

Maths

This week we are going to catch up on some fractions work. Last year we looked at halves, quarters and thirds but didn’t get much further in class due to the dreaded lockdown!

We are going to use this time to recap some of the things we have missed by looking at unit fractions and non-unit fractions.

A unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator is 1 and the denominator is a whole number. It represents one shaded part of all the equal parts of the whole. In general, a fraction’s denominator tells us how many parts we are breaking the fraction’s numerator into.

non-unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator is greater than 1. For example, 3/4 is a non-unit fraction, because three is the numerator.

You can use these resources to help you consolidate the learning we are doing in the classroom.

If you are finding those really easy, why not have a go at the mastery challenges!

English

We are finally writing our own story and we are so excited! This is where we can use everything we have learnt over the past term, putting it into practice by creating our own version of Miss Clark’s favourite film, ‘Brave’

We have planned our story using the plot of the best film in the world and will be drafting and writing in sections!

We are going to try to include speech in our stories. So you could practice punctuating direct speech at home.

If you’re wanting to have a go at writing some direct speech yourself you could use the bbc bitesize website to keep you right!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zr6bxyc/articles/zhqh92p

Handwriting

This week we are looking at the spaces between each letter, making sure we don’t squeeze our letters together!

Use these resources to practise at home ๐Ÿ™‚

Reading

In class we have started reading ‘The Magicians Nephew’ by C.S.Lewis. This is one of my favourite books and the children are absolutely loving it!

Please continue reading each day; this could be your school reading book, reading plus or a book you have at home! Don’t forget to get an adult to ask you questions based on what you have read!


WB – 30th November

Maths

Over the next few weeks we will be looking at telling the time. This can be a funny area of maths for some children so we have done lots of practical activities to make sure that our understanding the different parts of a clock is secure.

We have recapped looking at o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to and telling the time in five minute intervals. You can use the resources below to consolidate what we have done.

This we we are starting to look at minutes past and to the hour. This get’s even tricker as we have to be incredibly accurate when we’re reading the minute hand to make sure we’re reading minutes correctly.

Thankfully our friend Amber has made a video to help us to understand this concept.

You can use the resources below to help you practice telling the time to the nearest minute.

English

In the run up to Christmas we are going to put all that we have learn into practice and create our own story.

We have thought about the features of a good story and discussed our favourite books and what makes them so good.

This week for handwriting I want you to continue to practise your letter formation. Lots of the problems we see in class with handwriting are because children aren’t forming their letters properly, so when we come to joining it’s really tricky because we aren’t starting in the right place.

Over the next few weeks we are looking at Multiplication and Division.

In Y3 our targets are to recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables. Practicing counting in 3s, 4s and 8s is really important for this!

In our topic we are learning all about how the Neolithic time period brought lots of changes for the people of the Stone Age – the biggest one was that they started to settle down and build houses because they were farming!

So, naturally, we are going to be building our own Stone Age home and writing an advert to try and sell it!

We have looked at the different persuasive writing techniques using the acronym AFOREST

A – alliteration

F – Facts

O – Opinions

R – Rhetorical Questions

E – Emotive Language

S – Statistics

T – The Power of Three

We are using what we know about Neolithic homes and particularly those found at Skara Brae to write compelling advertisements.

Handwriting

This week we are practising forming descenders properly. Use these sheets to help you at home!

Maths

We are keeping up with our basic skills this week to help us with our tests. Feel free to use these sheets to help you practice your maths skills! You can also head over to TTRockstars and practice your times tables and improve your accuracy! (If you can’t remember your login, just message me on ClassDojo and I’ll get it for you!)

English

Even though we’re doing lots of baseline assessments, we are also continuing to read Oliver Jeffers’ book ‘Here We Are’; a beautifully illustrated guide to living on planet earth!

We have created pictures of our favourite place on planet earth and have written a free verse poem describing it using all of our senses. This week we will be writing our own notes of advice for living on planet earth!

If you don’t have the book at home, here is a video for you to watch!

Have a lovely week!
