We hope you've enjoyed the sunshine today Year 3s! According to the forecast, we only have one more day of this blissful sunshine - so make the most of it!

English Task

Your final English task will be to create your own Kenning poem. I'd like you to use the Kennings you created yesterday (those that you converted from verbs to nouns) and put a poem together using these. I've just made up one of my own for a dog called Pepsi...

Pepsi, he's a...
Spotty starer
Puppy carer
Spaghetti sniffer
Puddle paddler
Angry digger
Pool jumper
TV watcher
Eager catcher
Mummy cuddler 
Cat chaser
Meat eater
Friendly meeter
Pepsi!
 

Can you see how I've tried to use some alliteration (where my words begin with the same letter - spotty/starer) and some rhyme too (eater and meeter). I challenge you to create your own Kenning with some of these features. You can write it up and send it to us, or you can record yourself performing it, like you did Posy.

We can't wait to see what you can come up with :)

Spelling test - Parents/carers, can you test your child on this week's spellings and send their results to us? Here they are as a reminder...

Other Curriculum Task

For your task today, you need to think back to the work that you did with Mr Upston about First Aid. Go through each of the sheets and talk to someone at home about what you would do. Don't worry if you don't have a printer, you can draw your own diagrams with captions. You could also act out what you could do with someone in your family. Try using a tea towel to bandage a teddy too!

Hello lovely Year 3s. We hope you're enjoying the lovely weather, as well as the tasks that we have been sending your way. Thank you so much to those who have sent us your hard work - we've loved having a look. If you haven't already, check out Jashan's poetry performance on our facebook page..

We're going to continue our work on Kennings by looking at some grammar! Please watch the clip below...

Happy Wednesday Year 3! Again, a big thank you to those who have sent us your work. If you're not able to send us pictures of what you have done, a quick email to tell us how you're getting on would be great - we'd love to hear from you. We hope you enjoy today's learning. 

English Task

Today's Kenning task is inspired by Liam in year 6! You may have seen Liam on the Facebook page re-telling a poem that his class are currently studying for their home-learning. I'd love us to do the same for Posy. I've attached the poem again and your task is to perform the poem using actions. Of course, you don't need to learn the whole poem, you can read it from your screen/paper as you perform. You could also use some props/objects to help you as you go. It'd be super if we could get some of your performances on Facebook too. If you're not able to send me a clip, you could draw some pictures of what actions you used for the verses, or just tell me about some of your performance. Try to get your family members involved too! Happy poetry performing.... :)

It was such a shame that we weren’t able to go on our trip the River Otter a few weeks ago, but Devon Wildlife Trust have a great website where you can learn all about the beaver project. Follow the link to the website and read the section ‘About the project’ and watch the short film.  Also read the ‘Hoping to see a beaver?’ section so that you can answer the following questions. Have a go at sketching a picture of a beaver too!

https://www.devonwildlifetrust.org/what-we-do/our-projects/river-otter-beaver-trial

1. When were beavers first spotted on the river?

2. What are baby beavers called?

3. At what time of day are you most likely to see a beaver?

4. How can they detect dogs?

5. What should you look out for if you spot a beaver?

Story time!

3P have been reading Matilda and I don't want you guys to miss out so here's chapter 5...

Good morning Year 3! It was fantastic to see so much of your learning sent to us yesterday. We hope that you enjoy your activities for today. Let us know if you have any questions :-)

English Task

For your second lesson on Kennings, we’d like you to do a matching/sorting activity. On the PDF below, there are 3 pictures and a range of Kennings that could match the pictures. Your task is to match the Kennings to pictures. You can either print the PDF and cut/sort the task or if you can’t, write your answers down on a piece of paper. As a stretch, you can have a think about some other Kennings that may match these pictures too. We’d especially love to hear your thoughts on what Kennings can be used to describe a teacher… (be nice!!)

Yesterday you were asked to write about what a plant needs to grow well. Today your task is to explain the different parts of a plant and their function (how they work).

Watch the clips on BBC Bitesize to remind you about plants. Then draw another plant (make it different from yesterday) and label and explain what each part of the plant does to keep it alive.

Hello Year 3s! Welcome to your first day of home learning. We all really hope you enjoy the activities we have set and you don't find it too difficult to attempt at home. Don't forget, we're always an email away in case you're struggling to understand something. Please send over your work at the end of the day, we'd love to see how you've done. If you've done it on paper and cannot send it via email, a short message to tell us how you've got on will be great as well. Happy Monday everyone, stay safe and positive!

English Task

For this week, we are going to start looking at Kenning poems. These are lovely poems that are often written to describe something (without actually telling the person what it is). Our core text is Posy and below you will find a link of myself (Mrs Steer) reading it to you.

https://youtu.be/AbxciZIqlvU

Watch this clip as many times as you'd like (I know you'll be watching the cat the whole way through the first time you watch it - that's Juno, by the way). 

For your task, we'd like you to discuss the poem with someone in your family (or just think about it by yourself if everyone is busy). Here is an attachment which gives some sentence starters to get you thinking about the poem, as well as a copy of the poem itself. You can present your responses in anyway you like (simply written like the red examples shown, in an artistic way or anything else - be imaginative if you like). Please send them to your teachers at the end of the day. Enjoy!

As well as this, here are your spellings to practise over the week - I'll be asking the adults at home to test you on Friday :)

For your science work today, we would like you to think about our work on plants. Think back to what a plant needs to be able to grow well. There are 5 key ones to list. Draw a plant of your choice in the centre of your page and colour it neatly. Then write and label what it needs to grow well.
