UPDATE

Miss Wain’s update- 3/4/2020

Hello Year 3, I have added some more learning below to keep you busy! Check out the English update further down this page, I am challenging my class to write an awesome, imaginative story inspired by The Tin Forest book that we have been looking at in class. Any writing that I get emailed will get added to the wall of amazingness below. Get writing guys!

I have also added some science learning below all about the parts of a plant and some history learning all about the Ancient Greeks where you can learn about Pandora’s Box, create your own Greek monster and learn about sirens. Have a go and send me what you have been up to! Any pictures of your fantastic learning will be added to the page!

In the PE section of the page is also a link to the Primary Premier League Stars website where you will find free resources for English and Maths, check them out below.

We have reached the end of the Spring term, and what a strange one it has been, but thank you to all those children who have sent me emails with your fantastic learning and made it to the wall of amazingness! I am sad that I didn’t get to spend as much time with my wonderful class as we normally would when we get to the end of the Spring term but your amazing work is putting a smile on my face. I will not be adding any more learning over the Easter break, but there is lots on the page and in your workbooks to keep you busy! I do encourage you to do lots of reading, practise your times tables and your spellings, remember to use the year 3 spelling words below in the spelling section.

I will be setting a battle during the next two weeks and would love for everyone to go on and contribute to your team!

This starts at 12 o’clock today and finishes at 6 o’clock on the 19th April. Get battling!

UPDATE

As we have been focusing on the book The Tin Forest, I thought it would be a great opportunity for you to write your own story inspired by the Tin Forest! Click here to watch the video of the story as a recap.

It doesn’t have to be a forest that grows, and is formed, it could be a…

  • city
  • theme park
  • beach

Or the forest could be made out of something other than tin, it could be made out of…

  • food
  • sweets and treats
  • fruit

I would love to read your stories about this exciting place or forest that is created from a land of nothingness that is filled with all the things that nobody wanted.

Remember that you could also make your own Tin Forest at home out of different materials, I would love to see these creations!

Science

In science we are learning about parts of a plant, click here for a worksheet where you need to label the function of each part of a plant correctly.

History
