Daily learning guide
Learning times are only a guide, you might choose to approach each task at a different time

9.00: Read for 20 – 30 minutes.  Remember to record your thoughts in your
reading journal.

9.30: Time to log on and complete some work on Spelling Shed.

9.45: English

Monday:

Spelling: Looking at the ‘l’ sound spelt ‘al’ at the end of words.

We introduced this spelling rule to you a little last week, but now we are looking at when that ‘l’ sound becomes a suffix and adds to a root word.

Using your spellings on spelling shed, write them out and highlight the spelling rule in a different colour, just like we do in class!       E.g.  magical

Grammar: Looking at contractions.

Let’s remind ourselves of what a contraction in our writing is.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xE-vw2ctqo

Using this contraction word mat, choose three contractions and put them into a sentence.

Main task

This week we are going to write the story of ‘The Creakers’ from Lucy’s point of view with a few of our own ideas.  We will be acting as if we are her (first person) E.g. I slowly crept around my house looking for my mum.

Today, we are going to plan the beginning and build-up for our story. Click here for a planning sheet.  We are going to use the same setting and characters as the book, this way we can concentrate on our descriptive writing. In the beginning section, we want you to introduce the main characters. Did you know the two characters Buzz and Buddy are actually Tom Fletcher’s children? You could add in one of your own characters, maybe a family member, friend or even a pet! Now we want you to describe the setting. We would like you to include adjectives (describing words), similes (as tall as a tree) and your senses (sight, smell, hear, touch and taste). Don’t forget you wrote a description of Whiffington Town last week. It might be helpful if you look back at this.

 

Now for the build-up. The problem in the story is trying to find the grown-ups. Where have they gone? We want to include what the characters do before they find the grown-ups. Lucy and her friends visited parts of the town. Are you going to do this?

 

·        How did Lucy and her friends cope? What did they get up to? Were they naughty or well behaved?  

We know there is a creature under the bed. You have already created your own monster last week. Is your creature going to be in the build-up?

·        Why is the creature there? Is the creature naughty or nice?

 

Tuesday:    

Spelling: Looking at the ‘l’ sound spelt ‘al’ at the end of words.

Spend some time on spelling shed.

Grammar: Looking at contractions.

Continue to use this contraction word mat.  Choose a different three words and put them into sentences.

Main task

Continuing with our story writing from yesterday, today we are going to plan ‘problem / dilemma section on your planning sheet. Once again, we are going to use the same problem and dilemma the characters find themselves in as the book, so the focus can be on your descriptive writing. What is the problem the children need to try and resolve? Will anyone take the lead in trying to resolve the problem?  What is going to be tricky about solving the problem?  What difficult choices might the children have to make? This is the dilemma.

When planning this part of the story make sure you remember to write from Lucy’s point of view, (first person) E.g. Suddenly, I had a brilliant idea I knew I had to share with the others, and of course use adjectives, similes and your senses.

 

Wednesday:  

Spelling: Looking at the ‘l’ sound spelt ‘al’ at the end of words.

Continue looking at the spelling rule for this week and write them out.

Grammar: Looking at contractions.

Continue to use this contraction word mat.  Choose a different three words and put them into sentences, maybe you could try and use your spelling words into your sentences as well.

Main task

Welcome to Wednesday.  Today we are going to put all the planning you have done on your story map into a descriptive piece of writing, using paragraphs.  Use all your notes on your planning sheet. You are going to write in first person using, adjectives, similes and senses, to re-tell the story so far through the eyes of Lucy, with a few of your own additions.

 

Thursday: World Book Day! ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers has been chosen for our World Book Day! We have shared this below. Please read the book before completing any of the activities for today.

Spelling: Looking at the ‘l’ sound spelt ‘al’ at the end of words.

Spend some time on spelling shed.

Grammar: Looking at contractions.

Today you task it to make some contraction squares, just like the picture below. You will be in preparation for tomorrow’s task.

Main task

In class we have a problem that we need your help with. We are trying to encourage future space people to move to planet Earth. The book has given us notes about Earth, but it only tells us all the great reasons to live on planet Earth. The future space people have heard some things about living on planning Earth that are very different to what the notes in the book tell us! Any ideas?

We are going to write a balanced argument today. We did this last term. Using the notes in the book, we want you to first plan a balanced argument by noting reasons for moving to earth and reasons for not moving to earth (For and Against).  Click here for a planning sheet.

Then, using your plan, write a persuasive argument to give to the future space people so they can make an informed decision about the pros and cons of moving to planet Earth.

 

Friday:

Spelling: Looking at the ‘l’ sound spelt ‘al’ at the end of words.

It’s spelling test time. Get an adult to test you on your spellings for this week. Good luck!

 Grammar: Looking at contractions.

Today using you contraction squares you made yesterday. Test yourself and write the words that match the contraction on the back. See if you can do this without the aid of the contraction word at helping you!

Main task

Back to the story ‘The Creakers’, and today we are going to do some predicting.  What is predicting?  (when you form an idea about what is going to happen)

You have written the first parts of the story through Lucy’s eyes and now you will need to predict what ‘The resolution’ and ‘The ending’ will be to the story. Once again, we must still be predicting as if we were Lucy. (first person) How might the problem / dilemma be sorted out? Who might take the lead on solving the problems?  Will it all go to plan? Will there be any problems / challenges along the way?  How will the story end? Will the parents return home and everything return to normal? Or will things change forever?

Helpful phrases for predicting: I predict that...  I think... will happen   I bet that....

 

10.45: Take a break.  Grab a drink and a snack ready for your Maths lesson.

12.15: Lunch time.

13.15: In the afternoon, we focus on our Foundation subjects, here are some suggested activities in line with what we will be doing in school each day.

Monday: Music - This week we will focus on listening to music! Listen to the songs below from our book, ‘The Creakers’. What feelings do you feel when you hear these songs? What instruments can you hear? Do you like/dislike it? Why? A BIG TIP – close your eyes when you listen to the music and don't watch the video.

Song 1 - ‘Don’t Turn Out the Lights’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEfmEKJrPVc)

Song 2 – ‘Different' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZsRLPd4Yp4)

Tuesday: Music - Today, we would like you to follow up from yesterday’s music lesson. Find your favourite song. What do you like about it? What instruments are there? How does it make you feel? Can you link any of the instruments to the songs you heard yesterday? Do they sound the same or are they played in a different way with a different effect?

Wednesday: Music - Today, we are looking at composers. Here is a video to get you started! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk1LFEbQCKA.

Now, it’s your turn! Using your amazing knowledge of crotchets and quavers from last term, create a master piece! You could start by thinking of 2 or more instruments (these could be anything from around the house!) and creating two different parts for them to play at the same time. Maybe one could be doing crotchets and the other creates a rhythm of your choice. You’ll need another pair of hands for this – try asking somebody in your house if they can play one of the parts.

Could you get your whole family playing while you conduct? Make sure you write down what they have to do so they don’t forget! Have fun! 😊

Thursday: World Book Day – Choose one of the following activities.

(1) PSHE - In a quote shown at the back of the book, Oliver’s Dad says that ‘There are only three words you need to live by, son: respect, consideration and tolerance.’ What do these words mean? 

(2) Art - Create some illustrations of planet Earth. 

Friday: French (MFL) - Today, we are going to be learning about family pets! Follow the PowerPoint slides and practise the pronunciation of each animal. Draw your favourite animals and name them below! Challenge: Write down in a sentence, which animals you have as pets or would like to have as a pet. Can you find out how to write the entire sentence in French?

14.30:    Nearly the end of the day.  Take time to read the next part of ‘The Creakers’ by Tom Fletcher. 

Monday: Chapters 7 and 8

Tuesday:  Chapters 9 and 10

13.15: In the afternoon, we focus on our Foundation subjects, here are some suggested activities in line with what we will be doing in school each day.

Monday: Geography - Welcome to geography! We are going to start our week by researching the counties of England! Click here for a PowerPoint to get you started. We are already aware that we live in the glorious East Sussex however, can you name the other 4 counties that surround East Sussex? I’ll give you some clues! They start with W___ S____, K____, S_____ and L_______. Draw a map of Southern England (not the whole UK!) and add these counties in as accurately as you can, ready for tomorrow’s lesson.

‘Maps’ by Aleksandra and Daniel Mizielinski

Tuesday: Geography - Today, we are continuing with our maps from yesterday. We would now like you to do a little bit of research about some of those counties and add some topographical features for a few of them. Are there any interesting landmarks like famous buildings, rivers, county parks, etc.? These can be as artistic as your like! You could use the book ‘Maps’ by Aleksandra and Daniel Mizielinski as inspiration. Here is the UK representation. We are looking forward to seeing them soon! 😊

Wednesday: Geography - Time to have a look at our own locality today! We would like you to create a map of Hastings, identifying some of the topographical features such as the beach, promenade, Alexandra Park, etc. You can create this in any style you wish using text, pictures...whatever! Again, we can’t wait to see them!

Thursday: MFL (French) - Bonjour! New term, new French topic! This term’s topic will be linked to our families! Follow the slides on the PowerPoint to learn some of the terms needed to explain who we have in our family. Now we would like you to create a family tree! You could draw this or collect some lovely photos. Write who is in your family using the phrases from today such as; C’est mon père (This is my dad). How far back into your family history can you go? Have fun!

Friday: PSHE - This term, our PSHE topic is called ‘Healthy Me’. We are going to be looking at how to keep our bodies healthy as well as our minds! We will be starting this theme by beginning to understand what the heart is and how it works. Watch this video first to get a better understanding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg_ObDJEaGo&safe=active .

As you can see, our heart and lungs work together. As we breathe more using our lungs, our heart beats faster to help transport oxygen around our body. Let’s test this by doing some exercise! Before you start, record how many times your heart beats in 15 seconds (ask an adult to help you with this). Choose an exercise movement to do for 1 minute. What happens to your heart rate and your breathing? On a piece of paper, draw some different exercise you could do to make your heart and lungs stronger. Write how they might help and what benefits you might feel from these.

Use your knowledge of sense to help you with this task, I have put some ideas on to help you get started: 

What does he look like? Rough and tough 

What does he sound like?  Grunts whilst he hunts 

What does he smell like? Marmalade toast like an old roast 

What would he feel like? Eyes as black as the night sky 

And what do you think his food tastes like?  Grimy and slimy  

Now use your rhyming words to write a rhyming couplet. Click here for an example.

12.15: Lunch time.

 

13.15: In the afternoon, we focus on our Foundation subjects, here are some suggested activities in line with what we will be doing in school each day.

Monday: Music - We are going to start our music week by creating our own instruments! You could use recycled materials or use what you already have to create some interesting and personal instruments. Here is a link with some ideas (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrCEqdMfbno&safe=active) but remember, there are plenty more on YouTube! You could try a guitar or maybe even a harmonica. We’re looking forward to seeing what you can come up with!

Tuesday: Music - Today, we are going to be exploring crotchets and quavers. These are beats that tell us how long to play for when reading music. Watch these two videos. The first explains what pulse and rhythm means and the second tells us about crotchets and quavers. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zcbkcj6/articles/z2mqw6f / https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrEROwDoIcg&safe=active.

Using what you’ve found out, write down some simple notation using these. Be careful, it’s important to remember that quavers (short notes) should always be in pairs in this exercise (so joined up short notes!). Can you tap these rhythms out on your knees? You could sing them using ‘la’ or make up your own silly words for each beat! You could even use your new instrument from yesterday!

Wednesday: Music - Warm up using this video. See if you can follow along (don’t worry about the names when you watch the video, sometimes people call crotchets quarter notes and quavers they call eighth notes!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vZ5mlfZlgk&safe=active. Today, using your instruments and your new note reading/writing skills, we would like you to write us a song! This could be just instrumental or you could include some words and singing too! You could perform this to your family or friends online! Remember to use correct notation. Good Luck!

Thursday: MFL (French) - Bonjour little ones! This week, we would like you to research some food names in French. You can use this video to get you started or go and research your own (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lodXbEIPM7A&safe=active).

Write a list of these foods or draw them (be as creative as you wish!) then write the following about your preference:

J’aime (I like)

J’adore (I love)

Je n’aime pas (I don’t like)

Je déteste (I hate)

E.g., J’adore les spaghettis! (I love spaghetti!)

We have also attached a sheet for you to complete. Click here for the sheet.  

Friday: PSHE - Continuing with our theme of dreams and goals, we would like you to consider how brilliant you are already! We would like you to highlight something (or things!) that you are proud of from this week. What success have you had? How has this made you feel? Why is this? What might you do to try and feel this kind of achievement again next week? You could express this with words or drawings. But always remember; YOU ARE FANTASTIC! We are already so proud of all of you. 😀

PE: Virtual Sussex Games is back! Complete these weekly challenges to gain points for Silverdale and get us on the leaderboard! Have a go, practice and improve and submit your scores on the website!  https://www.activesussex.org/virtual/  Have fun! 😊

13.15: In the afternoon, we focus on our Foundation subjects, here are some suggested activities in line with what we will be doing in school each day.

Monday: RE - This week, we will be learning to understand Islamic religion. We will start with the Rites of Passage by focusing on the Islamic Pillars. We would like you to research what each pillar stands for. They are: Shahadah, Salat, Zakat, Sawm and Hajj. Write a brief description of each pillar’s meaning and draw an image to represent this. Here are some slides to help.

Tuesday: RE - In Islamic faith, names given to newborn babies are of high important and meaning. They can be representative of the religion, family or chosen for different reasons. During this birth Ceremony, there are a number of steps complete by the parents. The father first whispers a prayer into the baby’s right ear saying, “God is great, there is no God but Allah. Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. Come to prayer.” Next, the baby is given something sweet to eat to encourage their digestive system. We would like you to think about what your name means to you. Write your name in the middle of a piece of paper and draw all the things it means to you. These could be about your family, hobbies or perhaps you might wish to research the meaning of your name by looking online or asking your family why they chose it! Here are some slides to help.

Wednesday: RE - Today, we are going to be researching about Muslim weddings. Mehndi patterns are used to celebrate the occasion whereby women and men decorate their hands and arms using Henna. We would like you to research some of the steps involved in a Muslim wedding ceremony and then have a go at designing your own Mehndi! There are lots of tutorials online using turmeric rather than paint but if you don’t feel comfortable decorating yourself, you can always draw round your hand and arms on paper then design a pattern on there. Have fun! Here are some slides.

Thursday: MFL (French) - This week we are going to be extending our knowledge of colours! These will be your key words for today: clair = light/pale, foncé = dark and vif = bright. We would love for you to have a search around your house or even go out for a nice muddy walk and find some objects of different colours and shades. Draw these and write a description below. Here’s an example; The dark green leaf = La feuille vert foncé (don’t worry, you can write the object in English if you want to. But for an extra challenge, try looking it up in French!). One thing to watch out for is that you may have noticed the adjectives are after the object in French ([la]the [feuille]leaf [vert]green [foncé]dark). Make sure you write them like this in your examples!

Friday: PSHE - Today, we would like you to continue with your dream or ambition! Last week, we focused on all the steps and skills we might have to acquire in order to reach our goal. This week, we are going to be considering the possible challenges we might face along the way to success. For example, reflecting on our dream to be a famous YouTuber, we mentioned photography skills. Now, cameras are expensive! How would you overcome this challenge? Would you need to get a job in the meantime or perhaps raise money somehow? We would like you to write down some challenges you might face and how you could overcome these. You can be as creative as you like. Perhaps use mind maps, or drawings to explain your challenges!

Learning Apps

In addition to the lessons and activities prepared by your teachers, all children have unlimited access to a number of learning apps. In Year 3 these apps are:

DoodleMaths & DoodleTables

Edshed (Spelling Shed)

You should have logins for all three of these sites, and you will be used to using them at school. Try to use them daily to help improve your Maths and Spelling skills. They are all free to use and work on pretty much any online device - including many mobile phones. 

If you have any problems logging on, please either contact your class teacher via the class email address or contact Silverdale tech support at: appsupport@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk

 

Unfortunately we haven't been able to carry out our normal transition days for you to meet your new teacher.  We are hard at work today planning for our Recovery Curriculum, and the work that you will be completing when you return to Silverdale in September.  But in the mean time take a moment to watch a short video filmed by our class teachers welcoming you to your new class.
