For Maths this week please click on the link below to White Rose Maths home learning.
I would like you to begin on Summer Term Week 1 - Equivalent Fractions
First of all watch the video clip for each day, followed up with the the daily activity for 30 minutes each day.
If you can't print out the work sheet please verbally complete each question or show your working and answers on a piece of paper.
English - Adventure Stories
Over the next few weeks we are going to be looking at adventure stories.
This week, we are going to be looking at a few of the different features that I would like to see within your work.
I would like you to read the example of an adventure story that I have created. I would like you to begin to think of what you like and what you would improve from my story. I hope you find it entertaining. I am also going to include a checklist of the different features I am looking for in your own adventure stories. As the week progresses can you fill in the checklist?
I would like you to complete the worksheet on articles. Articles in an adventure story are the words 'a' or 'an' before a word. If the word starts with a consonant it will begin with the letter 'a' for example 'a car'. If the word starts with a vowel it will begin with the article 'an' for example 'an apple'.
I would like you to look at the list of different words that you have been given. Can you choose the correct article for the word? Can you also then write a sentence using each of the words that you have been given?
Today we are going to be looking at nouns. A noun is a word that is used to give the name of a person, a place or a thing. I would like you to look at the sentences you have been given. Can you identify the noun within the sentence? For an extra challenge can you write sentences using nouns for the people, places or things in your house?
Today we are going to be looking at conjunctions. A conjunction is a word that is used to connect clauses or sentences together.
These include words such as 'and', 'or', 'but', 'when', 'before', 'after', 'while', 'so' or 'because'.
We are going to be focusing on co-ordinating conjunctions.
These are used to connect two sentences which are of equal importance.
For example: I go to the park AND I go to the football stadium.
Both words would make sense as sentences on their own but the conjunction 'and' connects the two sentences together.
Today I would like you to look at the sentences you are given. I would like you to choose the correct co-ordinating conjunction to connect the two sentences.
Today, we are going to be focusing on subordinating conjunctions.
These are used to connect a sentence which would not make sense on its own to another sentence.
For example: I couldn't go to the zoo BECAUSE it was closed..
The sentence it was closed would not make sense if it was on its own however the conjunction 'because' connects the sentence to the sentence I couldn't go to the zoo.
Today I would like you to look at the sentences you are given. I would like you to choose the correct subordinating conjunction to connect the two sentences.
Just a reminder that you do not need to print off the worksheets, you can open them and write your answers on a separate piece of paper

Project Based Learning - The Amazing Egyptians
Hello Year 3,
Thank you once again for all of your hard work last week. I was super impressed with all of the work that I have seen, you have all really understood what the kingdoms of Ancient Egypt would have looked like.
This week, we will be carrying on with our work on the Ancient Egyptians, looking at the River Nile.
The River Nile is the largest waterway on the continent of Africa. It runs the entire length of Egypt and during ancient times was used for a variety of reasons: Travel from one place to another; fishing and hunting for food; trade with different communities; and channels were even dug into the river bank in order to grow crops which were used for food, trade or other produce.
How do you think the Ancient Egyptians would have transported their good along the River Nile?
This week, I would like you to design a river boat that you think would have been used during Ancient Egyptian time period. Remember, there was no metal or electricity during this time so they were very limited with the different materials they could use.
Can you draw your boat and tell me what different materials you have used to create your boat?
Can you also tell me what you think your boat would be used for?
If you would like to challenge yourself further you could try to make your design for a Nile Boat. You might need paper, sellotape and paper straws!
Look at these examples of Nile Boats
You can draw your designs on this worksheet if you would like to
Hello Year 3,
You might remember that at school we were having a Vocal music lesson once a week. To keep them going our vocal teacher Miss Ashman has created some short films that you can watch and join in with.
All you need to do is click on the links below in the order you see them, and the lesson will appear.
Before you start watching get yourselves ready, ask your parents or siblings to sing a few notes and you are ready to go! There will be another set of films next week and you can use the films more than once – in fact, the more the better.
