Additional Task

Times tables rockstar year group tournament

Unfortunately due to technical issues we have not been able to schedule this on Monday as promised but we have extended it until the end of Thursday 20th.  Please let your teacher know if you are having any problems logging on.

The winning class will be rewarded - come on Year 3!

Term 6 Half term break and week 1(due in by Monday 10th June)

 

Please can you save all recycled materials, such as cereal boxes, tubes such as the inside of kitchen roll or foil, dairylea cheese and egg boxes and plastic milk bottle tops for our DT project that is starting in Week 2.  Please can these be clean and sent in by Monday 10th June at the latest in a named bag.

We are looking forward to designing, creating and evaluating our Greek temple models and hope they look a bit like these:

 

 

Term 5 Weeks 5 and 6

Please continue to send in the research and fact sheets about the Greek gods, villains or heroes, as we have only had a few so far.  They will need them for their myth writing task next week, so Monday 20th at the very latest!

The new task for these final two weeks of term 5, is to use pencil to draw a plant from life e.g. to draw a plant in the garden or at a park, or alternatively a house plant or flower in a vase.

They have been exploring shading and shape using pencils and so we would very much like them to just use one colour and focus on the tone, shape and pattern.  Here are some other botanical drawings:

 

 

Term 5 History/English additional task  Weeks 3 and 4

The children have all become very interested in the heroes, villains, gods and goddesses from the Ancient Greek myths that we are learning about this term.

For their additional task, we would like them to research and present a fact file about their favourite mythical character.  This can be as a paper poster to be brought in or photo/ electronic file, that an be emailed in via the school office. We would like these to be completed by Friday 10th May please.

The following sites might help (or alternatively why not visit Crowborough library!)

 

Weeks 1 and 2 Task

For our computing lessons the children are going to create a presentation about themselves.  Therefore they will need to do some home learning first so that they are able to complete their task in school.

We would like them to research a bit about their family tree if possible.  We realise that this may be a bit of a "mine field" so if you do not have links with close family or have such a big family, then please only focus on one or two members.  If you would really prefer them not to engage in research about their own family, then they can choose a famous person or close friend that there would be some information on.

We need this recorded in any way that they wish, drawings, photos, written notes in their contact books but not anything on the computer.  It should be returned no later than Friday 26th April but anytime before would be useful.

Thank you for your support in this.

Easter Holiday Home Learning

During the Easter break, please visit places to watch the growth of plants such as a garden or park or even a garden centre. This is as preliminary learning for our science about growth and art about botanical drawing.  Look at the bulbs and blossom that are blooming at this time and the buds on trees and plants.  Notice bees or other pollinating insects that are beginning to visit the plants too and discuss the growth cycle as a recap from Year 2.

 

They all have individual spellings to work on or just keep learning the Year 3/ 4 spellings.

 

For maths, the children have found it a challenge learning to tell the time to the minute as well as time duration problem solving.  Please rehearse these new skills by playing the following games.

Happy Learning.

Term 4 Week 6

This week the children are completing their pneumatic models so please send in any extra bits for decoration.

 

Main task

This week we have organised a times tables tournament between both classes until Wednesday evening.

Head over to Timestables Rockstars to complete the challenge!

Term 4 Week 5

The children have been designing moving toys to explore the power of pneumatics in their DT lessons.  They now need to make the models of a monster or character like the picture below, so the home learning for week 5 is to collect any resources needed.  We suggest that they bring in a small box with a hinged lid such as a box of teabags and other items to decorate it such as pompoms or ping pong balls for eyes or antennae, milk bottle tops, plastic or paper straws, pipe cleaners, plastic or paper cups etc.  These need to be in school by Thursday 21st March please or before if possible. 

Please also encourage the children to identify any pneumatic systems such as bus brakes, balloon and bicycle pumps and other mechanisms that use air power such as windmills.  Thank you.

Term 4 weeks 2 - 4 Science project

The next few weeks are leading up to British Science Week starting on 11th March and we would like to set home learning in preparation for this based on the theme this year which is 'Time'. This also links with our maths unit of work which is telling the time!

There are two tasks that your children can complete or choose between if they only wish to do one.  Both tasks will need to be finished by Thursday 14th March.

Task 1 To create a water clock from a plastic bottle.

Task 2 Research the significant individual - Mary Anning 

Mary Anning lived and worked in Lyme Regis in Dorset which is an area that Year 3 are learning about in their geography unit 'Coastal Processes and Landforms'.

She was significant for her work in paleontology and her findings.  Please can they research more about her and present their findings any way they wish e.g. a poster or fact sheet, a word document, a written biography, a cartoon strip etc

Term 4 Half term holiday project (to be completed by Monday 19th Feb)                        

The children did so well learning their song for the Church worship - well done!

If you would like to participate, there is an optional task as a starter to next term's geography unit.

The children have been reading a poem about a river through the changing seasons.  Over the half term, if you are able to we would like the children to visit a local river or beach (our new learning unit) and observe the seasonal changes, the location, uses and the wildlife of the area.

We are hoping to visit the Ghyll in Crowborough but perhaps you are able to visit the Country Park which the Ghyll runs through, or perhaps the ford on Palesgate Lane.

They can record their observations any way they wish - a non-chronological report, a poster, a video or photographs etc.

Alternatively if they are able to visit the library, then any nonfiction books about coasts will support their learning for term 4.

Happy Half Term!

Term 3 Weeks 4 - 6  To be completed by Wednesday 7th February

The children will need to learn the song that we are going to be singing in our church worship on Wednesday 7th February.  We are rehearsing in class too but they will need to learn the words off by heart.  If they are reading anything during the service, then they will bring these home to practice during week 5.  Please help them with this task so that they are confident and ready for the performance.

Happy singing!
