I will tweet the best ones you email to me!
This is good fun and is linked to history and literacy. I would like for you to make a den, either in your garden, bedroom or even under the kitchen table. (As long as you are not in your grown up's way too much) What can you find from your house that you could use as something different? Be creative! Best pictures of dens and things in them will be tweeted!
Enjoy your evening. Don't forget to help Mum and Dad at home by keeping to a set bed time, and keeping your mind active during the day with our remote learning activities.
Also this week at 11am, David Walliams will be reading on one his brilliant stories! Search for www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/
Parent homework - please use the next few weeks to teach your child how to tell the time on an analogue clock, including past, and to in 5 minute intervals. This is a life skill and needs to be learned.
Please also use the next few weeks to practice times tables on TT rockstars for ten minutes each day. The children have all got their log in details and I can see who is using the app from my log in.
Weights, measures and units of measure, eg millilitres, litres, grams, milligrams are also easily embedded at home, especially if the children are going to be helping out in the kitchen. Get children familiar with filling up jugs to a particular measurement, or converting measures from one unit to another eg grams into kilograms.
This is the White Rose Maths scheme of work we use for maths.
We would recommend they practise and consolidate learning from earlier in the year either by clicking on the White Rose Maths units or searching for the topic on Twinkl. We have covered place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. We have done this by using pictures of place value coins and using the picture to help us exchange when needed and work out the answers.
If somebody confident is available in the house is available to work with them, lesson plans can be accessed here.
Free maths practice activities can be accessed here:
A range of fun interactive maths and English games can be accessed here:
Just click the menus and tabs to select the topic and age group
Carol Vorderman is making her 'Maths Factor' online tutoring absolutely free during this time, she usually charges for it! You can simply google Carol Vorderman maths factor free' and the link to the site will come up.
Parents and carers - I've just heard that Carol Vorderman is now also doing an adult maths online tutorial - this is the ideal time to brush up on your basic maths skills and I know the children will LOVE that you are a learner alongside them. We are in this together! Google Carol Vorderman adult maths tutorials and link will come up.
These are absolutely free!
On the twitter feed, I shall add pictures of any pages from our class book that you need to read, along side a reading question, and a short task.
For other literacy
Make the most of this opportunity to read, read, read! There are lots of comprehension tests on twinkl that you can do, and I have also given you books from our class library to read at home, as well as your usual reading book. Please keep these safe, as they will need to be returned in good condition when school re-opens.
(Once you have set up your free Twinkl account)
You can also access free pdfs and audiobooks of 6 classic children’s novels here:
https://www.researchify.co.uk/audiobooks.html (no login required)
You can access free downloads of First News, a good-quality children’s newspaper, here for a limited period:
I have just heard today (Tues 24th March) that one of my favourite children's authors David Walliams is releasing a free audio book every day. If your parents have facebook, the link can be found on his official page there. DO NOT go onto facebook without an adult's permission.
Thursday 26th March - At 6pm each evening, Oliver Jeffers is reading one of his books on twitter. Tonight it will be 'This Moose Belongs To Me'. I have retweeted his page on the year 3 twitter feed, give him a follow.
Science Up to Easter
Y3 Science – Forces and magnet
In Year 3 we have been learning about forces including magnets. Here are some activities for you to complete. I have also included the national curriculum guidance and suggested some websites which may be of help.
NC Guidance: Pupils should observe that magnetic forces can act without direct contact, unlike most forces, where direct contact is necessary (for example, opening a door, pushing a swing). They should explore the behaviour and everyday uses of different magnets (for example, bar, ring, button and horseshoe). Pupils might work scientifically by: comparing how different things move and grouping them; raising questions and carrying out tests to find out how far things move on different surfaces and gathering and recording data to find answers their questions;
- To know pushes and pulls are forces that act on an object and to make it move/stop. We have covered this already but it can be revised at https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/au-sc-2165-toys-using-push-pull-forces-powerpoint
- To notice that objects move more slowly on some surfaces https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-s-1389-comparing-how-things-move-on-different-surfaces-powerpoint
- To start to understand that friction is the caused by surfaces rubbing together and this force can slow movement down https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-s-237-what-is-friction-powerpoint
At this point a practical activity would be good to carry out a fair test into movement across different surfaces using a toy car or a ball : https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-t-2267-ball-rolling-experiment
Exploring the strengths of different magnets and finding a fair way to compare them; sorting materials into those that are magnetic and those that are not; looking for patterns in the way that magnets behave in relation to each other and what might affect this, for example, the strength of the magnet or which pole faces another; identifying how these properties make magnets useful in everyday items and suggesting creative uses for different magnets.
- I know that magnets attract each other and they do not need to be touching. I know that magnets can also repel each other: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/au-t2-s-532-forces-and-magnets-activities-powerpoint
- I know that magnets attract some materials and not others. Materials that are attracted to magnets are called magnetic: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-s-1340-magnets-and-materials-powerpoint
- I can recall from Y2 the names of different materials: wood, plastic, metal, paper, rock, rubber (and distinguish the name of the material from the object: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-s-231-materials-information-powerpoint
- I know that only metals are attracted to magnets (see 2 above). To know that magnets have 2 poles a ‘North’ and ‘South’ and these are often painted different colours.
- Now use what you know to complete these challenges: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-t-2199-magnetism-activity-sheets

History & Geography
Over the next few weeks, I would like you to visit the twinkle site and look at the work we have done already on 'Extreme earth', 'The UK' and 'The Stone Age'. I would like you to produce a fact file about Stone Age hunter Gatherers, and I would also like you to make a map of the UK on the back of some old wallpaper. Label the counties, the important cities, and the rivers. You need to include some fact boxes and of course, the correct colours!
Twinkl is an online resource website used by many schools worldwide. In light of current events, Twinkl have offered FREE access to all of their resources.
Parents can sign up for free here:
using the offer code: CVDTWINKLHELPS
This page contains information about how best to use the resources:
If you are unsure of what to do, reading comprehension and maths practice of their year group topics is best.
I think at this very uncertain time that we find ourselves in, the best religious education can be found not in what we do in a work book, but in what we do in our real lives, in your choices, how you act, and the love, kindness and compassion that you can show to everyone around you.
Please pray every day. Pray for the sick, vulnerable and elderley. Pray that they are shown love and compassion at this difficult time, and demonstrate your love and kindness towards them in the things you do.
Write a simple prayer to God each week, share it with your family, encourage others to pray every day. Faith will get us all through this, be a shining example of a person of faith, to other people in your home, and in the community.

Please use the twinkl link to access year 3 music activities.
I think it would be useful if you really practised 'active listening' as well, find some relaxing classical music on youtube and allow the music to relax and calm your mind during this unusual time we are experiencing. You will know how good a piece of relaxing music is if you can meditate to it. Practice mindfulness each day with a piece of classical music in the background. Sakamoto and Gabriel Faure are my favourite composers, maybe when you come back to school, you can tell me who your favourite composer is, and which piece of their music you love, and why.
Follow the joe wickes daily workouts!! There is a link in the original timetable from Monday 23rd March (above)
If you have a garden or yard, get out in it each day no matter the weather. Time yourself doing 50 star jumps or burpees, and then each day try to beat your own record. You will all be as fit as fiddles when you come back to school. We could even have a challenge when we come back to find out who can do 50 burpees in the least amount of time! I bet I will beat you all..... NOT! I will definitely be doing this challenge at home though with Tremayne. Maybe he will come in to school to be the judge of the fitness challenge once we all get back to normal?
