Year 3 - Curie and Pasteur Class

Welcome to Year 3

 

In Curie class our Teacher is Mrs George and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Glew.

 

In Pasteur class our Teacher is Mrs Twells and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Brown. 

 

We will be reading to you all every Wednesday on class dojo.

Make sure to tune in :)

 

Summer 2 Week 3 15.6.20

 

 

Hello everyone!

 

I hope that you are well and had an enjoyable week. Did you have fun trying our toy car friction investigation?

 

I have set work on busythings and mathletics for this week. On busythings there is some revision for punctuation and grammar, a story summary activity so that you can share what you have been reading and some fractions and shape work. On mathletics there is some number and place value revision plus some work on fractions. I look forward to reviewing your assignments and seeing how you get on with them.

 

Mrs Twells

For the past couple of weeks, we have been looking at the key features of an explanation text.

 

Remember, an explanation text tells the reader how or why something works.

 

This week, I would like you to have a go at writing your own short explanation text about the toy car friction investigation from last week.

 

Remember to include:

A title

An introduction

Subheadings

Diagrams

Conclusion

 

Think about these questions when writing:

Why does the car slow down?

Where does the energy go?

What is the technical vocabulary for the type of energy used?

 

Could you include a glossary?

 

I'd love to see some of your work on class dojo so that I can help to improve your work further.

Last week, we looked at the key features of an explanation text.

 

Remember, an explanation text tells the reader how or why something works.

 

This week, I would like you to have a go at writing your own short explanation text about pushes and pulls.

 

Use your learning from last week's quest work.

 

Remember to include:

A title

An introduction

Subheadings

Diagrams

Conclusion

 

Think about these questions when writing:

What is a push?

What is a pull?

How do we use pushes and pulls in every day life?

 

Could you include a glossary?

 

I'd love to see some of your work on class dojo so that I can help to improve your work further.

Word/ sentence work

Last week we learnt that subordinating conjunctions are used to express time, place or cause.  Using a conjunction helps us to add extra information to a sentence. By adding extra information to a sentence when writing an explanation, the reader can better understand a subject that they are unfamiliar about.

 

Use the conjunctions from the box to write your own extended sentences in your explanation text e.g.

 A push is a force that propels an object forward so that it is moving away from the source.

Reading Comprehension

 

As there is increasing talk about football returning to our television screens (in a very different way that we are used to seeing it), I thought it would be nice for the children to read about a topic loosely related. Here is a text about the FA Cup

 

Use the star at the bottom of the page to choose *Mild, **Medium or ***Hot.

 

Read the text and then answer the questions on the next page. There is an answer sheet for adults to check against.

Quest

 

This week our focus is to compare how things move on different surfaces by investigating the speed of a toy car over different surfaces.

 

.Recap forces by looking at the powerpoint presentation. How can the cyclist change the motion of the bicycle?

. Discuss the force of friction using the ideas from the presentation.

. Look at the video link that explains friction in more detail.

.Carry out the investigation explained in the presentation.

You will need: A toy car, a board, 5 different coverings for the board (e.g. sandpaper, tinfoil, corrugated cardboard, bubble wrap, a towel, lino, carpet) and a ruler.

.Complete the Investigating Friction Activity Sheet

Can you explain the effect of friction? Can you make a prediction? Can you record your results in the table? Can you explain your findings?

Choose *mild **medium or ***hot sheet.

.To apply your learning, use the friction worksheet to identify friction in the world around us.

.TRY THIS: ultimately, when friction slows a moving object down, the movement energy (kinetic energy) is not lost - it is converted into heat energy. You can feel how friction creates heat by rubbing your hands together.

I hope you enjoy investigating this week.

 

I have also added new assignments to busythings and mathletics.  Mostly the work is related to fractions and shape. There are a few revision topics for English and some Islamic art.

 

Don't forget our class story on Wednesday on Class Dojo.

 

Take care,

 

Mrs Twells

Summer 2 Week 1 1.06.2020

Hello Everyone!

 

I hope that you are all safe, well and had a pleasant half term break with a chance to enjoy the beautiful sunshine :-)

 

We are now moving forward into our Summer 2 term and our Quest question this half term is:

'Magnets, the power of the future?'

 

During this half term, we will focus on forces and magnets. We will cover pushes and pulls, friction and magnets. It is our aim to make this topic as 'home learning' and 'hands on' friendly as possible with links to 'real life' learning opportunities.

 

As for previous weeks, I will try to link our English learning closely to our Quest work.

 

It has been lovely to hear from some of you over the half term break and see some of the exciting things that you have been doing and I look forward to seeing the activities that you are working on at home now that we are ready to start our new term.

 

Take care,

 

Mrs Twells

English

 

Over the next few weeks, we will be preparing and writing our own explanation text linked to our Quest work.

 

This week, I'd like you to understand the key features of an explanation text.

 

An explanation text tells the reader how or why something works.

 

Take a look at the explanation writing poster that clearly breaks down each key feature of the genre. Can you see the similarities between an explanation text and a non chronological report?

 

Now take a look at the example text. Look at the annotated boxes that explain how each key feature has been used.

 

Could you use what you learned about plants last half term to have a go at writing your own explanation about how plants grow?

Explanation Example Text

Reading Comprehension

 

I have linked this reading activity to our last Quest topic 'plants'.

 

Use the star at the bottom of the page to choose *Mild, **Medium or ***Hot.

 

Read the text and then answer the questions on the next page. There is an answer sheet for adults to check against.

 

 

Mild

Medium

Word/ sentence work

 

Subordinating conjunctions are used to express time, place or cause.

 

Using a conjunction helps us to add extra information to a sentence. By adding extra information to a sentence when writing an explanation, the reader can better understand a subject that they are unfamiliar about.

 

Use the conjunctions from the box to write your own extended sentences. You could link them to last half term's learning about plants e.g.

The roots of a plant act as an anchor, therefore they keep the plant firmly rooted in the ground.

Use these subordinating conjunctions to write sentences with extra information.

Use these subordinating conjunctions to write sentences with extra information. 1

Quest

 

This week we will be focusing on pushes and pulls.

 

We would like the children to identify the different forces acting on objects.

 

.Use the mind map to find out what your child already knows about forces.

.Look at the power point presentation to learn about forces.

.Watch the bbc bitesize clip showing pushes and pulls. Note down all of the pushes and pulls that you can see.

.Discuss the forces seen in the clip referring to your learning from the presentation.

.Work with a family member to create some push and pull 'freeze frames' e.g. pushing a wheelbarrow, pulling the curtains. Try to guess the correct action being mimed.

. Use the activity sheet to identify the forces acting on the objects in the pictures.

.Think about everyday tasks that we do e.g. turning the light on, opening the fridge door, mowing the lawn etc. Write a list of things that you do everyday and identify whether you need to use a push or pull force for each. Maybe you could keep a forces diary.

. Draw pictures of things that you do everyday that use push or pull forces and label them correctly or use the push and pull picture cards or make a pairs game using a piece of paper cut into 16 pieces. Draw 8 pictures of actions and write push or pull on the other 8. Make sure you have enough of each to match the pictures. Place the cards face down a table and jumble them up. Take turns turning the cards over and trying to correctly match them with the correct force. (You could use the bingo card templates).

.Take photos of you and your family acting out an action. Print them out and label them with push or pull to make our own forces display.

Hello everyone!

 

I have now added more assignments to busythings and mathletics.

 

This week, I have assigned lots of quizzes to refresh your memories with previous learning after a week away from learning over the half term break. I hope that you enjoy completing them! Here are a few of the things that you can look forward to trying:

number system quiz

multiples quiz

length quiz

time quiz

name the 2D shapes

nouns and verbs quiz

book review

plant life cycles

 

 

Summer 1 Week 5: 18.05.20

 

Hello Everyone!

 

I hope you are all safe, well and enjoyed last week's activities.

 

I have added more assignments to Busythings and Mathletics for you to complete following similar themes that we are covering this half term; X tables, ordering numbers, word work, story summaries, design a book jacket,  statistics, plants and art.

 

English

 

Following this half term's genre: Non Chronolgical Reports; I would like you to use everything that you have learnt to write a report about something that you are interested about.

 

You will need to decide:

What topic you will write about

How you will find information about the topic

Then you will need to:

Make notes from the information

Use notes to draft a report

Look at the checklist from previous weeks to make sure that you are including features

Design your own layout or use a template from previous weeks

Improve your draft using the key features

Write your report

 

I am really looking forward to receiving your finished reports on Class Dojo and seeing what your have chosen to write about! :-)

 

Reading Comprehension

 

I have linked this reading activity to our Non Chronological Report work in English. Captain Tom Moore has been celebrated in the media for raising a huge amount of money for the NHS on the build up to his 100th birthday, so I thought it would be nice for the children to learn more about his achievement.

 

Use the star at the bottom of the page to choose *Mild, **Medium or ***Hot.

 

Read the text and then answer the questions on the next page. There is an answer sheet for adults to check against.

 

ENJOY!

Word/ sentence work

 

This week I have added a powerpoint that some of you may be able to access as a warm up to using prepositions, a resource that you can play as a game and a missing preposition work sheet.

 

Quest

 

Here are some resources to help you carry out an investigation in to 'what plants need to grow'.

 

I hope you enjoy learning about what plants need by trying this investigation at home. Don't forget to post pictures on Class Dojo :-)

Here is the plan for adults to read when helping to set up the investigation

Information about what plants need to grow to help with predictions

Plan your own investigation

Summer 1: Week 5

 

Hi everyone! 

 

This week for Curie class, I have set some more bits on busy things and on mathletics. 

 

On busy things I would like you to look at:

 

  • Prepositions,
  • Parts of a plant, 
  • Putting written numbers into numerical order,
  • Writing about Spring, 
  • Writing a short story of your choice, 
  • Creating and describing a Rainforest scene, 
  • Writing about people that help us, 
  • Creating a graph about ice cream flavours, 
  • Designing a book jacket for any book you have recently read, 
  • Creating a Cubist inspired painting, 
  • Number system quiz.

 

Next week will be half term, so I will not be setting any work. 
I hope you are all okay, and I hope to see you in the future. 

 

Mrs George :)

Summer 1 Week 4: 11.05.20

Hello Everyone!

 

I hope you are all safe, well and managed to enjoy some sort of VE Day celebration last week.

 

I have added more assignments to Busythings and Mathletics for you to complete following similar themes that we are covering this half term; X tables, word work, non chronological reports, statistics, plants and internet safety.

 

English

If we were in school, this week in English, we would be continuing to learn about Non Chronological Reports. 

 

Our aim would be to write our own non chronological report about plants.

 

Previously, I added lots of resources here that would help you to learn about them.

 

Firstly, recap the features of non chronological reports.

Does the information have to be written in order?

What helps the reader to know what each part of the text is about?

How can more information be included to help the reader understand?

 

Then, read the example paragraphs all about plants, watch the videos on the bbc bitesize link below or read about plants online or from books you may have at home. Use the writing frame I have added here or a piece of paper you have at home to make notes. Remember notes are not full sentences - just key words.

 

When you have made notes, use them to write your own non chronological report all about plants.

 

Finally, use the checklist to edit and improve your own report.

Have you included a title?

Have you used subheadings to make each paragraph clear?

Have you drawn a diagram with labels to help the reader better understand about plants?

Could you include an interesting facts box?

 

I look forward to reading your reports when you send me photographs of what you have done on Class Dojo!

Read this information about plants and write your own notes using the writing frame. Now write your own non chronological report about plants.

Reading Comprehension

 

I have linked this reading activity to our Non Chronological Report work in English. Unfortunately, The London Marathon had to be cancelled this year due to the pandemic but I thought it would be nice for the children to learn more about it's history.

 

Use the star at the bottom of the page to choose *Mild, **Medium or ***Hot.

 

Read the text and then answer the questions on the next page. There is an answer sheet for adults to check against.

 

ENJOY!

Word/ sentence work

 

This week I have added a resource that you can play as a game.

There a lots of 'suffix pockets' and words that can be sorted in to the pockets when this resource is printed and each piece cut out.

Look at the meaning for each suffix. How many can you already spell? Use the look, cover, write, check method to learn as many new spellings as possible. How many new words can you spell?

 

Summer 1, Week 4: W.C 11.05.20

 

Morning everyone!

 

Right, so far this week I have set some new work on Curie's busy things page. 
This week I would like you to have a go at the following please:

 

  • Common multiples of 3 and 4, 
  • Identifying common UK flowers,
  • Labelling cities in England, 
  • Discussing and making a graph from favourite drink data,
  • Writing and illustrating the life-cycle of a butterfly,
  • Writing a non-chronological report about a mountain, 
  • A quiz about different types of graphs and tables etc,
  • A refresher looking at place value, 
  • And an internet safety quiz.
  •  

I will be setting other bits throughout the week, and I will also be asking some questions for VIPERS from the first half of chapter 1. 
I hope you are all managing to follow everything as well as possible. 
Thank you to all of you for your efforts and support through this weird time. Hopefully we will start to come out the other side of this soon. 

 

Keep safe

VIPERS- Toto the Ninja Cat and the Great Escape

Still image for this video
I've attempted to do VIPERS from my phone. It is wobble as I have nothing to hold onto it. I hope you can follow it with me.

The words I would like you to find the meaning of are:

transported

lavish

precariously.

If you do this really easily, can you also find one or more words, you are not sure of the meaning.

Thanks :)

Week 3: W.C 04.05.20 [Happy Star wars day- May the 4th be with you]

 

First off to start this week, can I just say, GO CURIE!! for winning the attendance race this week. 
I am so proud of how much hard work and effort is going into the work. Well done all of you and keep it up! 
I know it is still strange, but I hope you are finding some level of new normal with school work and life in general. 

So this week on busy things, I have set a mixture of tasks. 

I would like you to:

  • Research and write about Rainforest deforestation,
  • Collect data from family and friends to create a table showing what months people were born in,
  • Create a post-impressionist painting from a photo (Also, extra points to any submissions telling me famous post-impressionist painters :D ),
  • Looking at the difference between singular and plural, 
  • Sorting words to tell me what an adjective is, 
  • Sorting numbers into multiples of 4,
  • Multiples quiz of 4, 8, 50 and 100. 
  •  

I will also be setting more work which isn't on busy things, but I will stagger it a bit. 

 

This week I have managed to find the VIPERS book too, so I am going to film the text with me reading it so you can read along with me. I will then give you questions as usual to answer. 
I will try my best not to bombard you with too many messages. 

Continue to send across any children's choice work. 
I have loved seeing what you have been getting up to. 

 

Any problems then let me know! 

 

Missing you all. 

Mrs George 

29.04.20

On BBC bitesize at the moment, there are some activities that are relevant to the national curriculum for year 3's as well as other year groups. This one links to an apostrophe lesson. 

 

Have a look at them. They include a video and then an online activity etc. Let me know how you get on with them :) 

Summer 1 Week 2: 27.04.20

 

If we were in school, this week in English, we would be learning about Non Chronological Reports. 

 

I have added lots of resources here that you might be able to read or print to help learn about them.

 

Firstly, take a look at the poster that lists the features of non chronological reports.

Then, read the example text that highlight the different features.

After that, read the Kangaroos report and use the features checklist (it has instructions) to colour the key features you find.

When you have read the Kangaroos report, you can use the Mild, Medium or Hot frames to practise making notes from a text.

 

Next week, we will be planning our own non chronological report by firstly taking notes.

Word/ Sentence Work

 

Choose which activity you will try *mild  **medium ***hot.

 

Use the correct conjunctions to improve the sentences.

Reading Comprehension

 

I have linked this reading activity to our Non Chronological Report work in English.

 

Use the star at the bottom of the page to choose *Mild, **Medium or ***Hot.

 

Read the text and then answer the questions on the next page. There is an answer sheet for adults to check against.

 

ENJOY!

Quest

 

Take a look at the powerpoint or look at the video link to learn about the different functions of each part of a plant.

 

Use the worksheet or draw your own plant to label the different parts.

 

Create a leaflet explaining the function of each part of a plant.

 

Play the matching pair game.

 

 

Summer 1 Week 2: 27.04.20

 

Hello Everyone!

 

REMINDER: We will use a variety of different ways to set our work for the week, primarily from Busy Things and Mathletics. We will also add other activities such as drawing, making, reading or PE here on our year group page.

We have decided to try and set some work that is linked to what we would have been learning if we were in school. Most of our English work will be added here for you to have a go at and our Quest topic ‘Did we evolve from a plant?’  definitely includes lots of fun activities that we will share and can be done at home. We are looking forward to seeing what you all get up to.


Class Dojo will be used to share tasks that we set and generally keeping in touch over the coming weeks. We really love to see all the things that the children are doing and choosing a Star of the Week!

 

This week we will be sharing videos of us reading stories that the children can watch!


As always, any questions we are always here to help.

 


Summer 1, Week 2: 27.04.20

 

I am trying my best to think of ways I can teach the children things that we would be doing in class. We would be looking at non-chronological reports. I have attached the file I would have been using in class. (I realise that the text is a little unclear, but I hope you can just about read it.)
If you have a printer at home, can you please print it and give it to your child. Then, can they read the text and try to answer the following questions please?

What tense is the non-chronological report written in?
What type of words are used? 
Does it matter what order the paragraphs are in? 
What type of conjunctions have been used? 

This is obviously not going to be as clear as I would like, so please bare with me. They will have looked at non-chronological reports at some point in the past, so hopefully it helps them to remember. 
I just want them to recognise any features that they can see too. 

I have also set a portfolio task for them to do about past and present tenses by changing the verb. 
If they could complete this, that would be great. 
I am also setting things on busy things too, but the resources are fairly limited. 

Hope you are all okay! 

 

Thanks 

Best wishes

Summer term 1:

Week 1: 20.04.20

 

This week there are lots of reasons for us to celebrate British Values:

 

On Tuesday 21st April it is Queen Elizabeth II's 94th birthday.

 

 Queen Elizabeth II was born on 21st April, 1926. The Queen celebrates two birthdays each year.

Her actual birthday is in April but her official birthday is usually the second Saturday in June.

The Queen has a real birthday to celebrate the day she was born. Her official birthday celebrates her reign as The Queen of Great Britain.

Having an official birthday in the summer means that the weather is usually better for her parade.
 

Queen Elizabeth II is Britain’s longest reigning monarch. 

This means that she has been queen for longer than anyone else has been our king or queen before.

 

On Thursday 23rd April it is St George's Day.

 

St. George’s Day is England’s national day.  April 23rd was named St. George’s Day in 1222. 

George became the official patron of England in 1415.

The tale of ‘Saint George and the Dragon’ is a legend. This means that some of it may be true; however, it may have been changed and embellished over time.

The legend of ‘Saint George and the Dragon’ tells of how he killed a dragon and saved a princess.

 

On Thursday 23rd April it is William Shakespeare's birthday.

 

William Shakespeare is thought to have been born on April 23rd 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon, England.

Shakespeare wrote heartrending plays, called tragedies, and comedy plays. He acted in several of his plays in front of Queen Elizabeth I. He often included the themes of religion, love and the monarchy in his plays.

Because of Shakespeare, we have  over three hundred words and well- known phrases in the English language, which he invented.

Shakespeare also had 154 sonnets published. 

A sonnet is a poem with 14 lines. Often, Shakespeare’s sonnets were about love, death and loss. 

William Shakespeare died on April 23rd  1616, which was the same day as his birthday, at the age of 52. 

Try some of these activities at home to celebrate the events linked to British Values:

 

  • Use some paper or card to design a crown like Queen Elizabeth II's or print a template and colour or decorate
  • Write an invitation for a birthday party - you could have a teddy bear's picnic 
  • Make a birthday card 
  • Design your own dragon or print one of the pictures to colour
  • Design your own coat of arms or print one of the templates to help
  • Write your own poem or play like Shakespeare 
  • Have a go at the Shakespeare Reading Comprehension (* = mild ** = medium *** = hot)
  • Read some of the information from the powerpoints and create a fact book or research even more facts using the internet 

 

I look forward to seeing whatever you try on Class Dojo smiley

Summer term 1:

Week 1: 20.04.20

 

Hello everyone!

My name is Mrs Twells. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as Pasteur Class Teacher. I am really excited to be returning to work from maternity leave, after having my first child, as part of the Y3 Team again and to work with the parents and children of Pasteur class.

I know that we find ourselves in strange times at the moment, but I feel lucky to have worked at DSA for 15 years and know so many of you already through teaching older siblings. I was also lucky enough to have worked with Pasteur Class 1 day a week before the Easter period and feel like I have already made some good relationships with the children. I have been spending this week familiarising myself with the new way that we are working together to support the children through these challenging times and I’m looking forward to hearing from everyone through the messaging system.

As Mrs George has written, this term’s Quest question is:

‘Did we evolve from a plant?’

Over the next couple of days, I will be adding new work to Busythings and Mathletics and I will suggest some creative ideas, that you might like to try at home, linked to our topic here. I will keep you updated on Class Dojo as well as on this page.

I look forward to working with you all!

Hi everyone! I hope you managed to enjoy the Easter holidays as much as possible.
We are now at the beginning of our summer term (a very strange start to it, i know).
This term our quest question is: 
'Did we evolve from a plant?'
I would like you to use this opportunity to really think about the children's choice work you can do for this. You can research, grow seeds, bake, make a presentation etc. Anything that inspires you :)
On top of this, I have added some new tasks on Busythings and mathletics. 
On Curie's busythings I would like you to look at:

  • Fractions, 
  • Labeling woodwind instruments,
  • Sorting prefixes and suffixes,
  • Recognising common trees,
  • Looking at common multiples of 4 and 8,
  • Also to start writing your own Shakespeare play.  

On mathletics, I have set:
Three activities focused around fractions.
Thank you to everyone who has been using these. 

 

I know we are in weird times, but we will muddle through together :D 
Thank you as well for your support through these challenging times. If you need any help with anything just give me a message. 

 

Keep safe! 
Mrs George

Week 3: 06.04.20

 

For the next 2 weeks we will not be setting any new work for you to do at home. You can still access Busy things as well as Mathletics and please keep sending pictures of what you are getting up to. 

 

We hope you enjoy the Easter break as much as you can, and find enough chocolate eggs :D 

 

Best wishes

Hello!
This is for anyone aged 7 - 11 years old and to be honest it could be challenging for many adults!
Can you see 3D shapes in your mind? Can you unfold these shapes in your mind?
Look at the unfolded piece of paper on the web link, if you refolded it, what shape would it make? Try this in your mind.
There are more shapes to try on the web page.

Week 2: 30.03.20

 

Hi everyone, 

 

I know it is all a little strange at the moment, but I hope you are all keeping safe. 

Please make sure you are following everything on busythings so we can get the best attendance in our online achievement assembly on Friday! 

If you are having any problems with it then let me know. 

This week, we have set a mixture of task, ranging from things we should be starting to topics we have already covered this year. We are hoping it gets those brain juices working :)
This week you have the following to have a go at:

  • Gathering data on pets at home
  • Designing a flower 
  • Making an internet safety poster

Autumn 1:

Our Whole School Quest question is: Where are the treasures of the world?

Our Y3 Quest question this term is: Where in the UK would you bury your treasure?

As part of our topic we made comparisons between Nottingham, Strelley and a seaside resort. 

We produced and made time-capsules and then went on a trip to Cleethorpes and buried them on the beach - we wonder if anyone will find them?

 

 

Children have settled in really well into KS2 this half term and have made a great start to the new school year. We look forward to discussing your child's progress with you in more detail during parents evening next half term. 

 

Remember to look at the curriculum letter for parents to see all the exciting things your children have been learning each term.
