Year 3 - Polar Bears

Welcome to Year 3 - Polar Bears!


W/C 18.05.20


Another week gone!! Hope you are all well! 


Below you'll find ore information/resources for another week :D 

This week's Literacy plan

Finish your work on 2D shapes from last week.

Make and draw 2D shapes with different properties. For example, you could draw some shapes with:

parallel sides 

right angles (perpendicular sides)

equal sides

You could take photos of shapes in the outdoors and annotate them using the pen tool on the photo.


Also, start learning about tenths. Start by cutting 1 whole thing into 10 smaller parts (equal). You could do this by drawing a rectangle and splitting it up into EQUAL PARTS. You could measure a piece of string and experiment cutting that into 10 equal pieces. You could try cutting food up into 10 equal parts.


If you have some straws, use one to represent a U (unit or one) and use 10 and group them together to make a T (ten). To show tenths, take 1 straw and cut it into 10 smaller parts (equal), called tenths. 


Can you start learning about decimals too? Only learn about tenths though! How can you write one tenth, two tenths etc as a fraction and as a decimal? 


Practise dividing by 10. This is the opposite of multiplying by 10. Dividing by 10 makes a number ten times smaller! 

If we divide 78 by 10, the 7 tens turn into 7 units and the 8 units turn into 8 tenths. All of the digits move 1 place to the right. When you multiply a number by 10 all of the digits move 1 place to the left. For example, for

78 X 10, the 7 turns into 7 Hs, the 8 turns into 8 Ts and then we put 0 for the Us. The answer would be 780! 


Try this using 'Moving Digits' on the website below! 


2Blog on Purple Mash

If you log into Purple Mash and go to '2Blog' you will see a blog for our class called 'The Romans'. Please add comments to this. I look forward to hearing from you all :D 

Learning about the Romans

This week, continue to learn about daily life. How did the Romans live? What did they eat and drink? What did they do for fun? What was life like for children? You could write a non-chronological report or design a poster with information on! 


Can you find out about the Romans in Britain? Where did they live in Britain. Why did they not conquer Scotland? When did the Romans leave England? When did the Roman Empire end? 


You could make a video and add it to seesaw! :D You could even role play and pretend to be a Roman living in Roman times! I'm sure you would love to be a Roman soldier!! Make a shield and have a pretend fight with a family member!!

FRENCH Summer Term - Week 5

If you have missed the past few weeks’ lessons, recap the fruit and vegetable vocabulary.


Listen and read the story ‘Hungry Giant’ from last week. Don’t forget to use the sound buttons. If need, use the transcript to translate the story.


This week we are going to practise asking things politely. Work through the short PowerPoint and use the sound buttons to check the right pronunciation.

Have a go at saying the sentence with different fruits and amounts, e.g. Je voudrais deux(2) oranges s’il vous plait.


Now have a go with the work sheet/s. You can either print the sheet/s out or do the sentences and pictures on a paper.


Bien joué - Well done!
