Week beginning 30.03.20 Poetry Focus

Here are the resources that you will need to create your own river poems based upon the poem ‘The River’ written by Valerie Bloom. I would like you to think of different metaphors to describe your river as Valerie did, and use personification to help bring your rivers alive. The YouTube link is also very good for explaining the poem.

26.03.20 ENGLISH River Descriptions

I have set you this river description task in preparation for some river poetry we will be doing next week. When thinking of adjectives I would like to to be as creative as possible, use a thesaurus to find synonyms, either using an online or book version. Remember, a simile is a direct comparison between two things and you will use the words ‘like’ or ‘as’ to do this. A metaphor is when you make a comparison between two things that aren’t alike but have something in common. When writing a metaphor you use the work ‘is’. 


Here are your English spellings for this next week along with a couple of activities from Spelling Shed.

In English this week we have been researching flood plains and considering the question ‘should we build on floodplains?’ with a view to create our own piece of persuasive writing around this. Here is a checklist for persuasive writing.

Week beginning 30.03.20 

I have attached a maths pack for you to dip into which is full of activities and resources to help you with your fraction work. It begins with halves and quarters and then moves on to making a whole.  

Top Tips:

  • The top number of a fraction is the numerator and the bottom, the denominator
  • The larger the denominator – the smaller the fraction. So, 1/2 is a larger fraction than 1/8
  • The denominator is how many equal parts are in the whole and the numerator represents how many parts are being considered
  • Equivalent fractions are fractions which represent the same amount or size but they have different numerators and denominators e.g. 2/4 is equivalent to 4/8
  • Use practical resources to help you visualise equivalent fractions – see if you can remember how to make a fraction wall too!

Welcome to our Year 3 page! Year 3 is an incredibly exciting year for the children as they begin their Key Stage 2 adventure. 

Throughout Year 3, the children will experience many amazing learning opportunities through a creative and engaging curriculum. We have already stepped back in time to the Stone Age, learning through the Cornerstones curriculum of ‘Tribal Tales’ to discover how we as humans have evolved over time. We also have an exciting trip to The Ryedale Folk Museum planned for this half term, where the children will be able to develop an understanding of how people in the past lived.

During Autumn Term 2, Year 3 will be transported to Ancient Greece to discover ‘Gods and Mortals’. Here, the children will be exploring Greek myths and legends and imagining what life would have been like all those years ago.

After Christmas, the children will be taking a dangerous walk on the wild side with our science-based topic of ‘Predator’. Here the children will have amazing opportunities to investigate the animal kingdom in the world around them. Watch out Year 3!

We will follow this by ‘going with the flow’.  Children will learn all about local and world rivers. This project develops children’s knowledge of river locations, river formation, the water cycle and how to conduct accurate fieldwork. Let’s hope it goes swimmingly..

As part of our final topic of the year, Year 3 will be transported to the magical world of a chocolate factory, through our mouth-watering topic, ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’. It’s going to be sweet! 

In Year 3, the children have numerous opportunities to display and grow their creativity through extra- curricular activities. Children will have rich experiences with music throughout Year 3; including lessons with Mr. Whawell,  choir practise and our Y3/4 Summer performance! A host of other extra-curricular opportunities are available to the children during their Friday afternoon enrichment sessions.

Due to the unprecedented situation that all schools are facing, school will be closed for most children for the foreseeable future. This doesn’t mean that learning has to end, but it is imperative that fun continues. We will be regularly updating the website with the resources the children who are still in school are using.

At the top of your child’s year group page, you will find links to many different websites offering a range of resources and learning ideas. Teachers will update the “Homework” section of each class’s page regularly with the resources used in school.

We realise that this could be very stressful for parents and children alike, and as such, teachers will be available through the messaging service on Class Dojo (link on class pages). We are offering a wide range of resources, please use these resources (and others) as little or as often as you feel is necessary for your child.

Stay safe & take care.
