Remote Learning: Week beginning 2nd November 2020

Topic Maths : Converting Time

Children look at the concept of years and months. We will consider leap years and how they are different from a non-leap year. They use this knowledge, along with their knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to convert between the different units of time.
Activities to support learning:
Children should explore years using calendars to investigate the number of days in each month. Rhymes and songs are helpful for children to remember the number of days in each month.
Maths Talk:
How many days are there in a week?
 How many days are there in each month?
How many weeks in a year?
How many days are there in _____ weeks?
What calculation do we need to do to convert days to weeks/weeks to days?
How many months/weeks/days are there in ______years?

Activity: Have a go at these activities.

Maths- Addition and subtraction

To begin with we are carrying on with the addition work we were doing before half term. Can you remember how to do column addition. Have a go at the first worksheet, remember what we do if the number becomes to big for the column. 
Worksheet 1-  -3digit-column-addition-activity.pdf-  

Then can you do these questions.
Worksheet 2 - -Adding-4-Digit-Numbers-Mixed.pdf-  

For an extra challenge can you solve these word problems using column addition.


Then  in our final maths lesson this week we are going to move on to finding the difference.
What does the word ‘difference’ mean?
What is different about these two pictures?

Now lets look at 2 numbers
345 and 365.
What is the same what is different.  In maths to find the exact difference we have to compare two numbers in terms of value.

At the top of the page is a question, have a go at finding the answer. Once you have had a go  have a look at the rest of the page. Below is a suggestion for how you could work out this problem. You could use a bar model, draw both numbers as bars and then use them to work out the difference. You could do this using whichever method you like e.g. mentally, using base 10 or partioning.

Now have a go at these questions.


Over the next 3 weeks we are going to be using ‘Stone Age Boy’ as our focus text. Read the ‘Stone Age Boy’ by viewing the video.

Stone Age Boy
Can you write a brief summary of what happened in the story, don’t forget to use time connectives.

This week we are going to focus on speech, to start this work we are going to create some speech bubbles for the characters. Have a look at the page of the book where the boy meets Om, you could draw a picture of the 2 characters, give each character a speech bubble, what might they say to each other? Remember only the words the character actually says go in the speech bubble.
The next lesson –

View the PPT    -Y3--dialogue-writing-V310515380.pptx-  

Can you think of other words we could use instead of using the word ‘said’? Make a list of these words.

Today we are going to use the speech bubbles we made yesterday and turn them into a dialogue, can you add the correct punctuation and write the speech as part of a dialogue? Once you have turned your speech bubble into a dialogue pick a different part of the story can you write a dialogue between the two characters?

In our extra English session this week we will be recapping word classes- focusing on noun, verb, adjective, adverb.
Work through this PPT   -word class ppt.ppt-  

Then complete the sorting activity. If you do this with no problem can you add your own words to each of the groups?

Please ensure you read daily for at least 30 minutes. Remember if needed you can quiz at home using the links we used before during the last lock down. Details of this can be Found in the Accelerated posts in the Enrichment section of the Website.
Tell someone at home all about our wonderful class novel, “The Wild Way Home.” Chat about what you have already found out and what you predict will happen next from the clues you have already read. If you have time draw an illustration of how you the imagine Mandal woods to look.


Religious Education

This week we begin to think about the beliefs and practices of Hindus. Take some time to research Hinduism and record 5 key facts .
Try and find information that answers the questions: Who? Where? And When.


Here is a blank map.


What is it a map of? Does anyone know where we live? Where is it on the map?
Do you know the UK is made up of different countries, how many countries? Can you name the countries? 
Identify the 4 countries of the UK and colour
Scotland- blue
Wales- red
Ireland- green
England- leave white.
Mark on the map where we live. Talk about the county that we live in and that the country is also split into counties. Which county do we live in?
Use google map to locate London, Edingburgh, Liverpool, Cardiff.

Now linking this to our theme, can you remember where the remains of Skara Brae were found? Can you label that on the map.
Where was the Cheddar Man found? Mark this on your map. 
Has the Uk always looked like this, think back to our previous lessons on the stone age, what did they map look like then, what was that land called, where is it now?
You could use Google to answer any questions you don't know.


Have you seen this place before? Do you know where/what it is? Do you know what is called? Can you put it on your a map? Do they know what it is? Is it a sculpture or does it have a purpose?
Watch this video -
Share how Stone Henge is a popular place for art work. Look at together and watch a few of the video links.

Look at the picture below and use that as inspiration for their own design. Try to choose a sunset/rise colour and create a ripple affect with different shades of the colour (use paints/chalks or pastels for the background if avaliable)

Use black paper to create silhouettes. Points to note – don’t cut straight, draw free hand and cut around the outline which will give it a more stony feel.
