Our Design Technology topic this half term is 'structures' and we are going to be designing and building castles. Do you remember that I asked you to collect different shaped boxes during the holiday? Well this is why!

We will be learning the features of a castle, identifying the 3-D shapes within those features and using 'net' templates to create shapes for constructing a castle. Have a look at the knowledge organiser for key facts, vocabulary and explanations of these words.

Today's key questions are:

What are castles for?

Who lives in castles?

Where do we see castles?

Which stories have castles in them?

Do castles all look the same? Why/why not?

Look at the pictures of castles on the power point, can you identify the main features? 

  • towers
  • turrets
  • battlements
  • moat
  • gatehouse
  • curtain walls
  • drawbridge
  • flag

Now look at the shape castle on slide 14, how would you label these features?

Design your own castle (you will need a ruler) and use slide 13 to help you to label each feature. Try to give a definition as well.

Challenge: 

How many of the features can you include in your design?

Today's Science lesson is going to be led by you! I would like you to show me your investigation and explain your conclusions to me. There is also a quiz to see how much you have learned about plants. Click on the link below:

 

FRIDAY 22ND MAY
Picture 1

Hi everyone,

Just a few things before we finish for half term.


1. Please can you conduct an experiment next week so that we can look at your conclusions the first week back after the holiday.
It is a very simple investigation linking to what we have been learning. You will need 3 plants (any will do) and I would like you to place them in 3 different places.
I want you to find out what happens when a plant has no water, no heat and no light. 

The information can be found on our Dojo class page.

2. Get designing those teddies for our school competition. If you have sent a design already, I have saved them so don't worry.

3. Complete any work you haven't done, just do small amounts throughout the week.

4. Please can you save empty boxes and containers (as many shapes as you can) for our DT project next half term.

5. Finally, stay safe, be good and have lots of fun!!

I would also like to say, from my family to yours, have a very happy Eid. πŸ’–

 

Have a lovely half term,

Love from
Mrs. R xxx

Hi everyone,

 

I hope you managed to enjoy the sunshine today.

As it is VE Day tomorrow, I am adding some ideas for you to do to celebrate. Please send me photos on Dojo messages as I can then add them to our class story.

Each class will also get their photos on the school story as well so get creative with your bunting, decorations and cakes!

 

Happy VE Day from my house to yours!
Stay safe and have lots of fun over the weekend.
Love from
Mrs. R xxx

How was your weekend? Did you enjoy the sunshine?

I enjoyed doing some gardening and eating my lunches outside!

 

 

This week is a little different as Friday is a Bank Holiday. It is a special day to celebrate VE Day.

Do you know what VE Day is about?

Watch this video to find out:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8&v=i234eVT_P8Q&feature=emb_title

 

Mrs. Farnworth wants everybody at St. Thomas's to do something on Friday to celebrate. She would like everyone in your home to make a piece of bunting that can be strung together as a decoration. On your bunting, please try to write down your personal story - what VE Day means to you, for example your freedom, the ability to stay safe in your home at this time, what you have learned in this situation.

You can make your bunting out of anything: card from cereal boxes, paper, material...and try to make 5-7 pieces. This can then be displayed on Friday at home - in your bedroom, your front room, or even in the garden! You could even make some flags to go with your bunting!

Click on these links for some ideas and templates:

https://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/family/ve-day-celebrations-in-lockdown-540015

 

You could get baking cakes or buns and decorate them in red, white and blue. Then share them with your family on Friday. If you are fasting, then share them with your family during Iftari.

 

Make sure you take lots of photos and send them to me on messages. Then I can put them on the class page. Mrs. Farnworth will be looking out for pictures to go on the school page as well!

John Lewis have launched a 'Feel Good Friday' website with lots of ideas and activities that you can do at home:

www.johnlewis.com/content/your-partners-through-it-all/feel-good-friday

They have launched a competition to find a superhero teddy bear, and they need your help designing it. The winning teddy will be sold in John Lewis and Waitrose shops later this year, with 100% of the profits going to the NHS.

I thought it would be lovely if we all designed a 'Superhero Teddy' to say thank you to all those who have gone to work so that we can stay safe. So put (imperative/bossy verb!) your Design Technology thinking caps on and send me photos of your designs. An adult in your home can help you enter the competition if you want to. You are all sooooo creative and I can't wait to see your ideas! Send them in messages and then I can add them all to the class page.

Draw and label as many different shapes as you can.

What do you notice about the lines in your house?

Good morning!
¡Buenos Días!
As-Salaam-Alaykum!

It's Fridayyyyyy!! Well done for completing another week of lockdown, I am very proud of you all.
😊

Log on to BBC Daily Bitesize and complete Friday's activities. Today we are
Reading poetry,
Completing maths challenges - number 4 is tricky!!
Understanding the importance of team work - you are already working with your family team every day.


By the end of today, you should have completed the activities on Bitesize, 'How to Skin a Bear' activities, your light investigation and collected your copy of 'Groovy Greeks' from school. Scroll down through the week if you need the links.

Please make sure you take photographs of your work (and any other activities you are doing) and put them in your portfolio on Class Dojo. Mrs. Farnworth might just take a peek. πŸ‘€

There are 3 dojos for sending photos and 5 dojos for being a 'Lockdown Legend'. So put in lots of effort and see how many dojos you can score!

I will also be putting some work on our class story later so make it your best. πŸ‘

OK, have a great day, work hard and make sure you get some fresh air in between activities.

It's another beautiful, sunny morning again (can you spot my adjectives?!!). How are you feeling?
I am feeling a little tired today but I'm looking forward to a BBQ for tea tonight!


Log on to BBC Daily Bitesize and complete Thursday's activities.

Today we are
re-capping verbs - tell me what they are!
ordering numbers up to 1000 - place value
and doing some singing. Record yourself and send it to me - 5 dojos if you do!


https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons

Did you get your light investigation done? Make sure you send me a photo.

When you log onto Class Dojo, can I ask that you send your photos in your portfolios please. That way we can build up a great record of all your hard work whilst school is closed.

OK guys, it's over to you...

This week I want you to be shadow detectives and track shadows on a sunny day. Begin your observation in the morning. Trace shadows either using chalk on a concrete surface or you can draw or take photos.
Come back every two hours and trace the shadows again.
Track the shadows throughout the day to see the way they change as the sun moves through the sky. Stand in the same spot each time and have someone trace your shadow.
What did the shadows look like in the morning? In the middle of the day? In the afternoon?
Send me the results of your investigation!

 

Take a look here to give you an idea:
https://www.kiwico.com/diy/Arts-and-Crafts-Ideas/1/project/Shadow-Chalk-Experiment/613

Remember to collect a copy of Horrible Histories 'Groovy Greeks' from the school main entrance so you can start reading. If you find some of it tricky then a grown up or a brother or sister can read it to you.

You must read for 30 minutes every day and it needs to be a book you can have a go at. You can choose a book from home, 'Groovy Greeks' or log onto one of these sites for free, and read online:

MONDAY 20TH APRIL

Good morning!

¡Buenos Días!

As-Salaam-Alaykum!

 

I hope you all managed to enjoy your Easter holidays! The weather was GLORIOUS, wasn't it? What did you do for your daily exercise in the sunshine?

 

Are you and your families keeping well? 

 

This half term we are going to be practising the skills we have already learned as well as learning new ones. I hope you have had lots of rest and you are now raring to go!!

 

This week I want you to use BBC Daily Bitesize to recap skills and get us back into a routine. Select Year 3 and follow the activities for each day:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons

 

 

If you have a printer, please download the following work packs and print them off. The work should be completed by Friday 24th April. There is a child booklet, a parent one with answers and some practical ideas you can do with your child. Please post pictures on Class Dojo for me to see:

 

https://classroomsecrets.co.uk/free-home-learning-packs/?goal=0_fcd5ea0670-396f0186fb-191075223&mc_cid=396f0186fb&mc_eid=7df652f32e

 

It is VITAL that your child reads for 30 minutes each day (this can be broken up into 10 minute slots if your child is struggling to stay focused, but try to build the time up to increase their reading stamina). This can be a comic, non-fiction books, a recipe if you are cooking together, a 'how-to' book...but they must read with someone who can check their reading accuracy and ask them questions about what they have read. 

 

Oxford Owl is another excellent site to support your child's learning, especially reading. Lots of ideas and games, comprehension activities as well as e-books that can be read on a tablet:

 

https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/help-child-learn-age-7-8/

 

Please can I remind you to sign up to Class Dojo if you haven't already done so. This will allow us to send messages and for your child to send me photos and videos which I LOVE!

 

OK, let's get going...

 

Love from Mrs. R xxx

 

 

 

Our history topic is going to be about Ancient Greece and from tomorrow you can collect a copy of Horrible Histories 'Groovy Greeks' to read and help you with your research. I hope you enjoy it!

I would also like you to go onto Twinkl Home Learning Hub and complete the 'How to Skin a Bear' activities by Friday 24th April. You may need support to read the story and complete the answers.
Let me know how you get on xx

Hello!

 

¡Buenos Dias! (I have found the ¡ symbol at last!!!)

 

Hello Year 3, how are you feeling today...raring to go??

 

Have you done your exercises yet? If you begin your day with some sort of exercise, you feel so much more positive and energised for the rest of the day.

 

Have you spoken to your grandparents this week or family members who are alone? It is very important to stay in touch. It shows you care and you can check that they are safe and well. heart

 

I am going shopping later for my elderly relatives. I put their bags at their front door and we wave through the window! Tell me how you have been taking care of your family on Class Dojo, if you haven't signed up then please do so as that is how we can communicate.

 

So, enjoy your day, work hard and show me your learning.

 

Who has completed everything in their learning pack..?

 

Love

Mrs. R xx

 

 

Good morning!
As-Salaam-Alaykum!
Buenos Dias!

How are you today?
Ahmed and Armaan have finished 'Charlotte's Web' already! Who will be next..?

When you finish, send me a message on Class Dojo about your favourite part of the book and say why it was your favourite part.

Then, create a story board of the main parts of the book, take a photograph and send it to me. I can't wait for the results.

Love from
Mrs. R xx

It was so lovely to talk to you all yesterday and hear what activities you have been doing. If I couldn't speak to you yesterday then I will try again next Monday.

 

Yesterday (fronted adverbial!!!), I was in school with Miss Turner, Mrs Hardman and Mrs Ali. We started off the day with a work out with Joe Wicks (The Body Coach). He is doing this every morning at 9 am on his You Tube channel. Make sure you give it a go - we can all be doing PE at the same time every day. You could even send me photos on Class Dojo!

 

Today I am trying to work from home but Dottie seems to have other ideas... At least the sun is shining, maybe you could sit outside your house and have a picnic.

 

I will say bye for now but remember to keep learning and I am thinking of you all.

 

Khuda hafiz!

 

Much love,

Mrs. R xxx

READ ALL ABOUT IT!!

During this half term we will be reading 'Charlotte's Web, written by EB White. As part of this unit of work we will be reading and writing newspaper reports. The children will be applying their knowledge of what a report is, how it is set out and how to 'grab' the readers' attention. They will be using expanded noun phrases and speech marks.

Welcome back, we hope you had a lovely holiday. This half term is going to be a busy one!

 

The children are very excited to be starting swimming lessons (information to follow) and to showcase some of our learning in our class assembly (30th January @ 10.15 am). We will continue to change reading books every Monday and library books every Thursday. PE is also on Mondays.

Our class novel is War Horse by Michael Morpurgo, which the children are really enjoying.

In History this half term we are travelling back to the Stone Age! There we will meet prehistoric people and learn about their way of life. We will learn about the stone tools they used, the houses they lived in, what clothes they wore and what they ate. We will also explore how early humans began farming and developed copper, bronze and iron.
