Daily Reading- 05.06.2020

 

For the next couple of days with our reading, there is going to be no '60 Second Challenge'. Instead, I would love for you to engage in one of the ideas from the British Library. You can access this by clicking the image above where there are a whole plethora of original ideas. Could you draw a gruffalo? Make a miniature book? The choices are endless! Maybe you could even watch some of the incredible videos...

Spend 15-20 minutes on an activity for the next couple of days and we will look to build this into our 'reading focus' weekly...

Times Table Rockstars/ Prodigy Maths

 

While you are completing 20 minutes of learning on here today, it is my job to update your records, change your multiplication tables and update our current league standings in preparation for next week's learning. I will also let you know on next week's Remote Learning screen who won different battles etc. Good luck and I hope you are enjoying being able to use these two programmes...

Spelling Pattern to Learn/ Test- 05.06.2020

 

This weeks spelling pattern is The /ʌ/ sound spelt o. This is, for example, in words like other, mother, brother, nothing, Monday; these could be some words you practice. Attached is this weeks spelling test and additional activities in order for you to continue to practise this spelling target. Good luck!

'Funday Friday Family' Maths Challenges

It is Friday! We have made it to the end of another week of 'Remote Learning'. Many of you are working incredibly hard and it is encouraging to see some of your excellent learning! Sometimes, it can feel hard to keep going, but you must continue to develop your skills and learning of your Maths. It is a bit like playing a sport, riding a bike etc- if you stop practising, what will happen?

 

This week, we started by continuing to learn about addition, then we moved onto subtracting numbers and then we looked at estimating answers. Every Friday, we are going to look at a range of Maths problems for you to try, some of them including these topics. Our 'Family Maths Challenge' problems are below- for Year 3, it is recommended that you try to complete problems 1-4. I have added some games to explore too- good luck and enjoy the challenges which lie ahead...

English Learning- 05.06.2020

Have you visited your author based theme park? Could you PERSUADE someone else to go there?

Our theme for the week this week has been 'persuasive writing'...

We have looked at creating a persuasive television advert for your 'author based' attraction and, yesterday, you looked at creating a poster advert or newspaper advert to really sell your attraction to try to gain some visitors! We wanted to make our attraction as popular as some of the attractions below...

 

Here are just a couple of examples and, by clicking on the images above, you can see videos of attractions like Harry Potter World and Dickens World, which used to be here in Kent!

 

We then used our persuasive writing techniques and features of persuasive texts to help us with our writing. To do this, we used the mnemonics PERSUADE or AFOREST to support us- do you remember what these mnemonics mean?

 

 

Click on the image of 'A Forest' to learn more about the persuasive techniques of 'AFOREST'...

 

To begin with today, in the three texts below, can you find and highlight, just like we did before, any examples you can see of AFOREST- highlight each part you find in a different colour...

 

Now, look at the persuasive reviews of 'Harry Potter World' in the resources attached. As you read the reviews, think to yourself about the teacher notes and how they are trying to persuade....

 

It is now your turn! Today, I would like you to try to write a persuasive review about your 'Author based attraction'. Pretend you are the first person to visit the attraction and it is amazing- how could you review it? Nowadays, we use internet sites like Trip Advisor to review different things- maybe your parents can show you and this could mean you get creative...

 

The resources below should help you to create your amazing review so good luck and, if you can, you could send me some examples so that those catching up are able to 'magpie' any of your ideas...

 

Afternoon Learning (PE)- 05.06.2020

On a Friday, I love to bring you some ideas of how you can implement 'At Home PE Sessions'. It is really important to keep active and healthy during these times. Have you seen the updated government guidance? As well as going for a run, you can now play golf and tennis...

You can still do Joe Wicks and all of his workouts are available by clicking the image below...

 

These are more physical fitness workouts.  If not, why not grab a tennis racket now that we can play and try these 'at home drills'...

If not, I have been using these football drill sessions with the sports team I coach. I think they are really good and you only need a small space for them. Click the link below to get started and enjoy Friday!
