Week Commencing 13/07/2020

This is the last week's worth of work in Year 3. We have added some revision packs for some subjects below. There are also some sheets and activities to help introduce you to your new teacher. Have a go at the work sheets and send them to us and we will forward them to your new teacher. 

Miss Duignan's class (3L) Miss Martin would like to introduce herself.

 

Numeracy

Before the Summer holidays, our last lot of Maths is all about revising what you should know before Year 4. Have a look through the revision booklet below and complete the range of numeracy activities. If you are struggling on a certain topic, re-watch the videos we have put up over the Summer Term. 

Literacy

This week we want you to think all about yourself! Each worksheet will tell your teacher all about yourself.

Lesson 1 - Draw a self portrait of yourself (watch the video for support). Then think about adjectives, similes and other description to describe yourself. Miss Duignan has done one about herself, so look at her example before completing your own. 

Lesson 2 - Answer the questions with as much detail as you can. 

Lesson 3 - Use the subheadings and write some information about yourself. You can use all the information you used in Lesson 2 to give you some ideas of what to write. There is also a blank sheet if you want to come up with your own subheadings!

Lesson 4 - Use all the information from the above worksheets and fill out the fact file about yourself. You can use one of the templates, both or you could draw your own. Don't forget to use the sub-headings to help you sort out your information. 

Spellings

Unit 9: Adding the suffix -ion


Today we would like you to create  a list of words that have the   suffix -ion 
e.g.   action

If the verb ends in the letter t we just add -ion:
collect + ion    = collection    
But if the verb ends in te we must drop the e before adding -ion:
concentrate + ion   = concentra
tion
 
Once you have created the list underline the suffix -ion in each word.
​Can you make a separate list of all the root words?

 

EXT. Once you've completed this, have a go at word changers. You can draw your own grid, or just write down the words.

P.E.

Over the summer, we want you to try and stay as active as possible. We will be having a focus on staying healthy when we come back to school. 

Mr.Snell has set you a exercise bingo challenge and provided links o lots of fun activities you can do at home, anytime!

Unit 6- adding -ation to verbs to form nouns

Today we would like you to create  a list of words that end with -ation.
Once you have created the list underline -ation in each word.
-ation is an ending that can be added to lots of words. It sounds like ay and shun, doesn’t it? 

We can add -ation to some verbs to change them into nouns.
If the verb ends in a consonant we just add the suffix:
inform + ation          information 
Here is an example sentence I made up using these words. Ahem!
You must inform the police at once! Give them all the information you have.
 
But if the verb ends in e we must drop the e before adding -ation:
adore + ation = adoration   
Here they are in a sentence:
adore my new puppy, and he looks at me with adoration, too.
 
Weird Word Warning! There are some words that contain -ation as part of the root word and not as a suffix.
For example:
station
nation
 
Complete the grid with the root word, suffix and then the combined word.

Week commencing 4.5.20

On the 8th May 2020, it will be 75 years since the end of World War Two. Usually there would be celebrations all  over the country to remember the people who fought in the war. However, since we will be in lock down still then the VE day website would like everyone to:

The Royal British Legion is calling on people across the UK to join in a moment of reflection and Remembrance at 11am on Friday 8th May, the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, and pause for a Two Minute Silence. I hope that we will all support this aspect of VE Day from the safety of our homes too.

We are also encouraging all those taking part to undertake the ‘Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of WW2’ at 3pm on the 8th May, from the safety of their own home by standing up and raise a glass of refreshment of their choice and undertake the following ‘Toast’ – “To those who gave so much, we thank you,” using this unique opportunity to pay tribute to the many millions at home and abroad that gave so much to ensure we all enjoy and share the freedom we have today.

Miss Duignan and Mr Thompson have added some activities linked to VE day below if you would like to celebrate at home yourself. 

Maths

This week we are carrying on with our fractions learning. We are learning about fractions of amounts and shapes. Have a look at the video created by your teachers, this also explains the worksheets and how to complete them. 

Literacy

Our literacy lesson this week, is all about adverbs of time. For parents and carers have a little read of the information below if you need some more help from the video.

Stage 3.3. I can use adverbs of time (when) correctly (before, after, during, in, soon after). (NC)

 

What are adverbs of time?

Adverbs of time tell you when something happened. They express a point in time.

These adverbs of time are often used:

  • to talk about the past: yesterday, the day before, ago, last week/month/year
  • to talk about the present: still, yet, while, when
  • to talk about the future: soon, then, next week/month/year, in 2 days, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow

 

Study the following examples:

  • John went to the cinema yesterday. He had to work the day beforeLast week he was on vacation.
  • When Julia talks to her boyfriend, she is really happy. This month, however, she hasn't seen him yet.
  • The family will go on vacation soonNext month they will go to Italy. Then they will go to Spain.

Other adverbs of time can be used to talk about the past, the present and the future:

  • already, finally, eventually, after, before

Look at the examples:

  • We must hurry up, George is already waiting for us.
  • They were finally able to buy a new car.
  • I have never been to the US, but eventually I will go there next year.

 

Adverbs of time can go at the start of the sentence, this is used when you want to make the time very clear.

 

Yesterday, I had to go out shopping.

Last night, I went to bed early.

Tomorrow I will visit my mum.

 

Adverbs of time can also go at the end of the sentence. This is when you want to talk more about what you are doing.

 

You will go and wash your hand, before you eat your dinner.

Susan made sure she had a lot of fun, after she had finished her homework.

Week Commencing 27.04.20

Welcome to  new week of online learning. We have tried something new, and attached videos connected to our IWB slides for children. Please let us know if you find these helpful (or not!) as we want to try our best to support the children at this time.

Maths

This week, we are looking at fractions. Watch the lesson below provided by Miss Duignan and Mr Thompson, then have a look through the worksheets. Remember to choose the sheets that you think are appropriate to you please! 

 

Literacy

This week, our target is looking at subheadings! Subheadings are used in Non-fiction texts, and we have already used them in persuasive writing back in Autumn term. This week we will recap what to do, there will be a video, some worksheets, and then a writing task as ways. Please send your writing to y3parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk.

S3.13 I use headings and sub-headings to set out my work clearly for the reader. (NC)

What is a Sub-Heading? 

Sub-Heading is a mini-headline given to a subsection or paragraph within a main piece of writing. They are smaller in size than the main headline but larger than the paragraph text of the article.

Sub-headings are often seen in non-fiction writing such as an instruction text or an informational text and are used to capture the reader’s attention to keep them reading down the page, following each sub-heading. 

Importance of Using Sub-Headings 

The main purpose of sub-headings is that they are meant to stand-out and they do this because of the size and snappiness of them. 

If the reader is looking for a specific piece of information, the sub-headings act as a guide to serve the reader through the page until they have found what they are looking for. 

Having interesting sub-headings will encourage the reader to read through that section and so on. 

Sub-headings are like hooks, they get the reader to stop, look and read through the information. 

How are Sub-Headings Introduced to KS2?

In Year 3, students are introduced to the use of headings and sub-headings in their English lessons to help present and structure their writing more clearly. 

 

Watch the video below, then have a go at the worksheets listed. Good Luck!

 

Writing Task:

Choose an animal that you know lots about, or would like to research, and write four paragraphs using the following subheadings:

Introduction

What does _____ look like?

What does ______ eat?

Where does _______ live?

 

You can change the subheadings if you like, these are just a starting point. 

Spellings

 

Practice these spellings. If you're not sure what any of the words mean ask an adult of use the internet to help you.

 

Ext. Try writing the words in to sentences. Remember your capital letters and full stops!

Literacy

Hope everyone enjoyed their Easter Acrostic poems. This week we are working on similes (this was mentioned in the poem work). 

S3.19 I can describe characters, setting and events with similes.

What is a simile?

Simile
A simile is a comparison phrase which finds similar features in two objects and compares them, always by using the words 'like' or 'as'. Writers often use similes to make their writing better and give the reader a really good picture of what is being described. For example:

The spilt milk was like a lake.


This simile is used to show that the amount of milk spilt was large and spread across a surface, just like a lake.

The similes in this passage are highlighted in bold:

The cracked earth was as dry as sandpaper. Suddenly, lightning forked in the sky like fluorescent veins. The sky darkened to a moody grey and thunder roared like an angry lion. Rain sluiced down from the sky, drenching the parched earth.
 
Below is a power point with lots of ideas about similes if you are struggling still. 
Then have a go at the three worksheets underneath.

This week, we are working on inverted commas/ speech marks.

S3.10 Speech Marks

Target on Year 3 Writing Learning Ladder.

Speech Marks

Learn all about speech marks and how they are used in language. Speech marks are punctuation marks that indicate direct speech in a sentence.

What are speech marks?

Speech marks are punctuation marks that are used in pairs in various forms of writing to indicate speech or begin a direct quote.

They are also called quotation marks and inverted commas.

Direct Speech

"Yesterday I read a fantastic Wiki page all about speech marks".

"I don't want to go to school today".

"I'm meeting Jacob at the park at 2 pm".

 

They are placed around direct speech in writing, to show the reader what the person or character says. Inverted commas can be used as " " (double) or ' ' (single). Either is acceptable, but you must be consistent with your use of them in a piece of writing. You may wish to find out which version is taught in your child's school, so when helping at home, you're consistent with what they are learning in class. 

Tasks:

Work your way through the sheets below. You can write the speech out again onto plain paper adding speech marks.

Then complete the short writing task at the end. Miss Duignan and Mr Thompson have started the conversation for you.

Guided Reading

Have a go at the Guided Reading texts below. Remember to try and pick apart the vocabulary and what the words mean to support you when answering the questions.

An adverbial phrase is a Phrase built around an adverb. Learn all about them with examples.

What is an Adverbial Phrase?

An adverbial phrase is used in English and are taught to kids in school when learning about adverbs. An adverbial phrase is a group of words that have the same impact as an adverb. They modify a verb, adjective, adverb, clause or an entire sentence.

Adverbial phrases can make a sentence more interesting and exciting. They tell us how, when, where, why and how long.

Examples of adverbial phrases:

Adverbial phrases can use the following:

In a while,

After school,

At midnight,

Under the stars,

On top of the mountain,

Like a hungry lion,

 

 

Adverbial phrases help to add more information to a sentence. They can describe how something happened or will happen. They can show time and tell us where something happened.
