Friday 22nd January

Good morning Year 3.  Today there is some Maths, English, PSHE and PE 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.

 

Reading Plus and TT Rockstars

 

Start today by spending some time completing at least one session of your reading plus and some time practising your timetables on TT Rockstars.

 

Maths

 

Today we are going to look more at worded problems using our multiplication and division knowledge and skills.  There are two worksheets here.  One consists of more simple word problems whereas the second worksheet contains multi-step problems.  I will post a video which talks a little more about this in the morning.

 

I have also included the answers so you can self-check and mark to see how well you got on like we sometimes do together in class.

English

 

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

 

As the main task today in our English lesson, you are going to write up your viewpoint of a debate.  The debate is:

 

‘Is it better to be a child today or in the Stone Age?’

 

In order to do this, fill in the advantages and disadvantages worksheet for both being a child today and a Stone Age child.  Once you have, you need to look at what you have put and decide which side of the argument you are on.  I then want you to write up your arguments using the following structure:

 

Paragraph 1: introduce what your viewpoint is and try to be persuasive so other will agree with you.  Use language like, ‘when you look at the advantages… it is obvious that being a child in … is clearly the best option.’

 

Paragraph 2: give all of your reasons why you think living as a child in your chosen period is better.

 

Paragraph 3: give one disadvantage of your chosen period but then turn it round to make it sound good.  This makes your argument stronger because you can take what some people might see as a disadvantage and turn it into a strength.  E.g.:

 

Some people might say that being a child in the Stone Age is boring because you don’t have any games consoles or electronic devices but I say that the absence of these silly contraptions means that we are out and about more, carrying out physical exercise and staying healthy.

 

Paragraph 4: Conclude why you think your side of the debate is correct. E.g.

 

In conclusion, if you look at all of the advantages of being a child in … it is quite clear that this is the best period to live in as a child …

 

What I will also do is set up a section on Seesaw where you can type up your best argument for your choice.  You can then respond to other children and ‘argue’ with your own ideas and ‘question’ what they think.  This will be monitored by myself and Miss and we will only approve sensible comments.  This just gives you all chance to actually have a bit of a debate about it which is what we would do in class.

PE

 

Get active today and show me what you get up to on Seesaw.  Keep wrapped up and warm if you decide to do anything outside.

 

PSHE

 

In this lesson, you will explore the roles and responsibilities that you, as a citizen, have in your community. You will then create a video that outlines your role, alongside the main responsibilities you have.

Here is a short video lesson for today.

Golden Time

 

It's Friday and that means Golden Time.  This week has been a hard and unexpected week for everyone so make sure you treat yourself with a bit of Golden Time ... after you have done your work of course.

 

let me see what you get up to on Seesaw.
