Week 3 18.1.21

Monday 18th January 2021

Good morning children and welcome to a new Monday 18.1.21.  This week Mrs Holmes and Mrs Norbury will be providing your learning whilst you are at home and the children in school will be seeing Miss Haley and Miss Cropper.

 

Look at the timetable below, which is the same as last week. We are using the same timetable at home and school so that we can learn alongside each other and some of you may be splitting your time between Home and School.  Use the timetable to direct your time to the different activities. This will help you manage your time well.

 

There will be videos uploaded for your Maths and English and another subject each day. This week there will be live daily check ins for 3HN at 9.45 (although Monday will be 2pm). It would be lovely to see you all so please check in to chat to Mrs Holmes and Mrs Norbury, it's also a great way to become more familiar with using Google Classroom too. 

 

Remember to stick your work in your home learning books where possible! You can also forward us any work you would like us to see to the class email. We can't wait to see your fantastic work smiley

 

Have a great week children and please get in touch via your emails if you need to.

Year 3 Learning timetable at home and at school

This timetable of subjects each day is a good guide to make sure your week has balance of learning. It will also be useful if some of you are in school some days and at home other days so that your week flows together and hopefully you won't be repeating subjects at home that you have already experienced at school. We are so proud of the way you are all working at home and at school, keep up the fantastic work.

Handwriting

(Monday, Tuesday 10 minutes each)

Monday

This week we are going to be practising joining from the letter a. At the top of the first image p20, it models an example of what your join should be like from the letter a. Use the first image to practise your a join. Use the lines in your book or on your paper to draw your letters the correct shape and size. This is something that we are practising all the time!

Tuesday

Today I want you to work really hard at joining on and off of the letter a. The second image p21 encourages you to do this in the EXTRA section. Keep trying the words until you are happy with your joins.

 

Extension

If you feel you have done really well with your joins, you could move on to the EXTENSION section at the bottom of image 2 p21. This section is demonstrating words within sentences that contain the letter a. Little and often is best to improve your handwriting. Keep working hard! I bet your writing looks amazing at the end of your practice.

Warm Up

Today we are going to practise our x tables and division facts using a word search type game. You have to find the 4 related facts and circle them. There is an example on the activity Thursday Word Search X tables and division facts. We are doing the activity on p1! The answers if you would like to check are on p2. Please don’t do any of the others as we shall have another go at this later next week. The example they have given is 4,8,32. This is because 4x8=32, 8x4=32, 32 divided by 4 =8 and 32 divided by 8 =4.

 

Main Activity

Today we are dividing with remainders.

Please watch the video lesson.

Please work through the Thursday Power Point to make sure you understand what was mentioned in the video.

  1. Use p14 and see if you can answer the challenge. Use counters or money to work out practically and then draw these as counters in your books.
  2. Challenge yourself with a different amount and see if you an work out the remainder. I challenge you to 5!

e.g. 57 divided by 6 = 9 remainder 3

 

Use any jottings and methods you would like to work out your answers in your book too, just like we do at school!

You could play TTRS and see if your practice this week has worked for you.

At school we shall consolidate our learning an do the activities below but with objects in school.

If you feel you have coped really well with this week’s work and you don’t need to practise any more of it then let’s do some maths around the house.

 

Task 1 Look at the clock. What time does it say? Can you write the time down in 4 different ways? Digital, analogue and 24 hour digital and analogue.

Task 2 Fetch some products from your food cupboard. Look at the weights of them. Can you put the weights in ascending order? Remember that is lightest to heaviest!

Task 3 If you have weighing scales in the house weigh some products around your house. Can you place these in descending order (heaviest to lightest)?

Task 4 If someone goes shopping today, see if you can add some of the amounts together. Look at the receipt as we know lots of you won’t be visiting shops at the moment.

Tuesday

Our over arching question this half term is to explore;

Why do people pray?

Last week we looked at; What is prayer and is it helpful?

We will be exploring prayer in different cultures within the UK. Last term we focused on Christianity, but also looked at different cultures and religions and what their beliefs about God are.

 

This week we are going to look at Islamic Prayer and our main question to try and answer is;

What happens in Islamic prayer? What does this show us about Muslim beliefs and ways of life?

 

LO: To describe what happens in Islamic prayer

This lesson is about the practice of prayer as a Pillar of Islam About how Muslim people find benefits in praying five times a day.

 

We shall look at how  we show our feelings through our body language? What do you look like when you are angry, happy or sad?

Watch the video: https://www.truetube.co.uk/film/muslim-prayer

How do Muslims prepare for prayer? How is the position of the body important?  The body language of submission and equality is very important.

Watch this next video up to the section on God https://www.truetube.co.uk/film/alien-abduction-islam

You will have discovered through this video that many beliefs of Muslims are very similar to other cultures and religions that we know about.

Look at the picture of people praying on the power point.

Can you talk with an adult about what you know about how these people will have prepared for prayer. If you prefer you could print the picture up and tell me what you know about preparation for Islamic prayer.

Use this website to help you locate the names of the mountains.

 

We are going to find out about the Three Peaks Challenge using this website.

What are the Three Peaks?

What are the highest mountains in England, Wales and Scotland?

What is the distance from Stockport to each mountain?

Using Google Maps, how long does it take to drive to each mountain from Stockport? 

 

Record your findings how you would like in your books. Happy exploring smiley

PSHE/SMSC/Well-being

Wednesday

This week we are going to focus again on what we are good at. We are all so good at different things and it is important to celebrate this.

 

LO: To recognise things I am good at

We would like you to communicate to us what you are good at. It might be flying a kite or writing lyrics for a song! We want to hear about it. We would like to see some evidence of you doing this activity. You could take a photograph and stick it in your books, you could draw a picture and explain to us what is happening. You could use the attached speech bubbles if you like to explain what you are good at. This is a time for you and those around you to celebrate what you can do! WE can't wait to see this work and celebrate with you! smiley

Spelling

Thursday

LO: To spell words with the prefixes 'sub-' and 'tele-'

Can you fill in the blanks?

Spelling

Friday - LO: Using an apostrophe for contraction

When you are joining words together, you can use apostrophes to connect them more easily. By using an apostrophe to contract words, you can turn a phrase of 2 words into a single word by either omitting or rearranging letters. 

An example of this process is:

 

  • 'You are' > 'You're' = In this case, the letter 'a' is omitted, completing the contraction.

 

Have a go at the quiz below. Good luck!
