Home Learning Activities...
Home Learning Week
How does water gets from the roots to leaves of a plant?
Try this experiment at home and email your pictures to school so we can add them to our 'hall of fame'.
In Year 3 we cover a range of genres including: narrative, recount, poetry, information texts and diary writing. On a Thursday the children will use this day to plan their work and on Friday they will produce a 'big write'.
Whilst we encourage children to read every day at home (please remember to sign your child's reading diary), we EXPECT the children to read at least 3 times a week at home.
In school we complete Guided Reading sessions each week. We enjoy working in small groups to share a range of books and texts of different genres. We can then answer comprehension questions- sometimes finding simple facts or making predictions about what we think might happen next.
We enjoy chapters from our 'Class Read' every day. This is currently 'Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone. Where possible, we link punctuation, grammar and writing activities. We also take time each day to enjoy a spot in dependent reading from a book of our own choice.
In all of these ways we aim to develop our understanding of comprehension and language whilst fostering a love of reading.
In Y3 we study two topics in History- we learn about 'Ancient Egypt' and 'The Romans'.
When learning about the Ancient Eqyptians, we visit the 'World Museum' in Liverpool for a fantastically hands-on day out. Here we can also see real artefacts from Ancient Eqypt.
On a visit to Chester we get a first hand experience of what life was like as a Roman over two thousand years ago.
We enjoy visiting the ampitheatre in Chester and learning all about Roman soldiers and gladiators. It's educational and exciting at the same time!
Now we are in Year Three we should know our 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We should be able to answer questions on these times tables VERY quickly.
By the END of Year Three we also need to know the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. We need to know them so well that we can even say them backwards!
To help us really learn our times tables we use TT Rockstars! A great game where we can learn quickly!
All children in year 3 have a sumdog account. Sumdog is a personalised maths & spelling practice that pupils love which has lots of great games on it.
