Friday 15th January

Good morning Year 3.  Today there is some Maths, English, PE and PSHE for you to have a go at.  Make sure you upload your work onto Seesaw so that I can have a look at what you have been doing.




Change of plan today.  We were going to move onto short division but I think it is best that we just spend another session consolidating our understanding of short multiplication.  There is a video which you can access here:


The worksheets to go with this are below.



Spelling starter


Start today by asking someone if they can test you on this week's spellings.  If they can't, then test yourself.  Let me know how many you get right and which words you don't quite get if there are any.


Main English


Today you are going to be writing a setting description for me.  So get thinking of those adjectives, expanded noun phrases and similes.  To start, I want you to look at the picture from page 15 of Stone Age Boy...

From here, I want you to note down as many nouns as you can see in the picture.  This will give you the starting point for your setting description.


Next, you are going to come up with a couple of adjectives to describe each of the nouns that you have identified.  Once you have, you are going to look for synonyms for these words.  Synonyms are words which are different but have similar meanings.  This means that if you have chosen the adjective 'big' this gives us an opportunity to find more impressive words to replace that with such as huge or enormous.  To find these synonyms you can do one of two things:


  1. Find the adjectives you have chosen in a Thesaurus.  This will give you a range of other words to choose from.
  2. If you don't have a thesaurus - using a device at home, type into Google 'synonyms for...' followed by your adjective.  This should bring up some other options for you too using the internet instead. 


Now that you have your nouns and list of adjectives, you are going to write me a short setting description for this page of the book.  Imagine you are the boy and have just walked into this camp.  You are going to describe it using as many of your senses as you can.  What can you see, hear, smell, taste, feel?


Success Criteria


  1. Capital letters and full stops (writing in sentences)
  2. Adjectives
  3. Expanded noun phrases
  4. Conjunctions
  5. Similes (challenge)


Example opener:


As I entered the camp, I could see huge, bulky men all with thick beards like manes around the face of a lion.  They were all doing different jobs using small, stone tools and making the strangest grunting noises I have ever heard as they worked away.



Get active today in some way.  You could try the Joe Wicks workouts if you haven't already.



In this week’s lesson, you will understand what a community is, explore the different types of communities (place, interest, action and practice) and consider the benefits of being a part of one.

Here is a short video lesson for today.

You will find a Coat of Arms template below to use if you don’t want to design your own.

Golden Time

It's Friday and that means Golden Time for us if we have finished all of our activities and have been working hard throughout the week.  Take a bit of time to do something you enjoy and start settling down for your weekend.  Let me see what you get up to by uploading something onto Seesaw.


Have a great weekend everyone.
