Sea Turtles - Year 3
week beginning 1st June 2020
Welcome back to our home learning page. I hope you all had some fun during half term, I have spent a lot of time in my garden sorting flower beds, building lego models and going for walks with my children. I have also sorted exciting learning activities for you to work on this week.
I will be marking and giving feedback on 1 piece of your work each week! Please send in your work to firstname.lastname@example.org
This week please send in a piece of English!
Keep up all the super work that you are doing! I am so proud of you all!
Have a lovely week of learning at home. I would love to see work from all of you this week. If you are outside remember to stay safe in the sun, wear a sun hat and glasses if you have them and put sun cream on regularly.
From Mrs Campbell
Summer is here and the weather is getting hot! Use the power point and links below to find out how to keep yourself and others safe in the sun.
Challenge - can you make a poster to remind everyone in your house how to stay safe in the sun. If you email them to me I can also add them to the website to help keep your friends safe.

In your writing this week you will be thinking about nouns. We will be identifying nouns and using expanded noun phrases in our writing!
Remember our writing rules:
- Every sentence begins with a capital letter
- Every sentence ends with punctuation . or ! or ?
- Your handwriting should be joined and sitting on the line
- If you include speech in your writing use speech marks
Writing should be fun, so enjoy your tasks
I would you like you to read for at least 10 minutes each day. You can read from a fiction or non-fiction book or a comic or a newspaper or the internet (please ask you parents to check the website first).
Choose one of the reading comprehension challenges. 1* star is a hot challenge, 2** is a hotter challenge and 3*** is the hottest challenge. Choose your challenge.
- read the questions THEN read the text and circle or highlight important information that will help you answer the questions.
- if you do not know the meaning of a word STOP and use a dictionary to find out what it means
- give detailed answers to the questions
- check your answer makes sense
Enjoy your reading Sea Turtles

In science we are going to be finding out more about the human body. At school we have already learnt that our diet is the food we eat and that nutrition is the vitamins, minerals and energy that our body absorbs from our diet. Some people have a healthy diet and some have an unhealthy diet. Most people have a diet that has some healthy and some unhealthy foods.
We are going to find out more about which foods are healthy, about different types of skeleton and our skeleton.
This week in Art we are going to be creating concentric circle artwork in the style of Kandinsky! I hope you have fun!
Take lots of care when you practise your handwriting. Remember all letters sit on the line and should be the same size, ascenders are tall and descenders go below the line.
Most letters join BUT there are a few that do not!
- Capital letters NEVER join.
- q y j g z x do not join to the next letter
This term we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians in history.
We will found out about their rulers, the buildings they made, the special ways they treated people when they died and their daily life. There will be some research and some things to make or draw.
This week you will be finding out all about Ancient Egyptian mummies; why and how they were made. It's a little bit gruesome to us but very important to the Ancient Egyptians.
This half term we will be learning about Judaism. We will be using a new word
- covenant (promise)
and finding out about the promises God made the Jewish people.
Judiasm - let's find out about the Ten Commandments and think about how they affect the lives of Jewish people

Online Video Learning with BBC Bitesize!
BBC Bitesize is a super learning resource, today they have launched home learning daily lessons.
Every day there will be an English and Maths lesson, and a foundation lesson too. The English and Maths lessons will cover the Year 3 curriculum so you can practice the skills we have learned in class.
It would be fantastic if you could watch the lessons online, especially the English and Maths as they will revise your skills in SPAG and number.
