Dear year 3,
Welcome to the last week of home learning this year. This week's activities have been set out below. We will not be responding to emails this week as we are both in school - if you have urgent questions, you can contact the school office. All the attachments will be on the website.
Monday 13th July
This week we are going to look at capacity, moving on to pictograms and bar charts. We are following White Rose this week, which means we have the videos to support learning. The links for the videos are on a document on the website.
Please watch the video for lesson 1 comparing capactity, then complete the worksheet. Why not check your answers?
This week, we will be following planning from the Hamilton Trust. There is an overview of the week and then tasks for each day. Because it is the last week of term, it is a fun week of jokes, puzzles and revolting recipes.
As an alternative, I have also added another 'Talk For Writing' work book, for those eager to improve their writing, this can be completed anytime.
Day 1 – Read a collection of jokes. Then try making up your own joke, you could try creating your own joke book.
Because we want to finish our Geography topic before the summer holidays, we will be setting 4 lessons this week.
Read through the slides 'Around the Counties', then choose a worksheet to complete, * tricky, ** trickier or *** trickiest.

Madame Willis has sent through a powerpoint that revises some of the frech we have covered this year. There is also a short animation with French text that the children might like to see if they can understand.
Please also practise your spellings and times tables and most of all, have some fun.
Finally we'd just like to say....
We'd like to both say a massive thank you for your continued hard work and dedication to your home learning. We have been truly amazed by the amount and quality of work we've been sent. It has provided us with lots of smiles and a feeling of pride watching you all take such a mature approach to your learning. Your work has inspired us and definitely made the time much more enjoyable.
Although there may be times where you've struggled to stay motivated, this time would have benefited you in many ways without you realising. We hope that you keep up all the bike rides, art, sports, knitting and various other hobbies that have kept you busy. This time will have helped you to develop vital learning skills and resilience, which we have no doubt will help you to thrive throughout the rest of your school career.
We now hope that you have a well earned rest this summer, so that you feel refreshed and ready for Year 4!
Miss Lee and Miss Thomas
