Week 15 - wc 29 June 2020

Welcome Year 3 to Week 15!

We hope you are all well and are enjoying learning at home! Let us know what you get up to by emailing us at year3enquiries@theacademy.me

Booklets do not have to be printed out- the children can write their answers in their exercise books that were sent home or on a piece of paper. The work sent doesn’t have to be all completed, only complete what you can. 

Reading  

  • The Old Railway Reading Comprehension
  • The Magic City Reading Comprehension

Writing

For the next 2 weeks we are going to be working through a Literacy booklet using the Talk For Writing structure which we often use in school when learning new stories or writing structures. This is about a Jungle adventure where the children will be writing a diary entry, a poem and a non-chronological report. 

Monday and Tuesday – Activities 1 and 2

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday- Activities 3, 4 and 5

Art

Sticking to the jungle theme of our Literacy work, this week we would like you to draw pictures of animals in the jungle- think carefully about the size of the animals, trees and grass etc.

Maths

Non printing activities

Printing activities

  • Times tables and division colouring booklet- this is to work on over the next few weeks
  • Properties of shape worksheets (Activities 1,2 and 3)

Pixl Times Table App

I have been very impressed with some of the scores on the times table app so far! If you're not sure of your child's password please email the year 3 enquiries and we will send it to you. This is a great way to practice times tables which is a key skill to keep up.
