Monday 29th June 2020

 

Good morning! Here is your home learning for this week! At least the weather is cooler, so you should be able to settle to your learning this week. You have Maths and Spag  and a choice of other activities this week. In addition we would like you to read for at least 20 minutes each day. Use the review to write a book report about a book that you have read. Have a fantastic week! Mrs Ballinger 😀 julie.ballinger@racemeadow.org 

 

 

Monday 22nd June 2020

Welcome to this week's home learning! This week is focused on the BFG, which would have been one of our mini missions. Maths continues learning about time - practise telling the time whenever you can. If you want to be creative this week, make a dream catcher by following the instructions - don't forget to send a photo when you have finished! It was lovely to receive emails from some of you last week and to speak to others on the phone. Please keep persevering with your home learning - it is important. 

Have a lovely week and take care in the sunshine if we get some this week!

Welcome to Year 3! We have a very exciting year planned - including a visit to Cadbury World and an overnight residential trip to Chasewater. 

 

Our first topic is all about food - Scrumdiddlyumptious!!

To start our topic we made a disgusting cake! 
We had a fantastic day at Cadbury World. We wrote our names with chocolate, tempered chocolate, learned the journey of a cocoa bean from farm to factory and of course, tasted some chocolate too!! 

To finish our topic, we tasted fruit, learned how to prepare different fruits and then designed and made our own smoothies.Then we invited our parents in to taste and evaluate them!

All aboard the Polar Express!!

When we arrived, we had to have our golden tickets checked by the conductor. School looked so different!! We had to travel through tunnels and along the tracks in the link corridor to get to our classrooms! There were even engines in the reception area and at the bottom of the corridor!! 

 

We had a special message from the Polar Express team too!!!

We had a fantastic day in our pyjamas, watching the Polar Express film and enjoying hot chocolate and marshmallows...☕

 

Throughout our Polar Express mini mission, we learned sketching techniques using different lines to create texture and shading. We also explored primary and secondary colours to create colour wheels. Building towards our final piece of artwork, we also investigated tones and tints of blue to create a fantastic colourwash background.

Below is a slideshow of the learning process... 

Charlie Small: Gorilla City

Who on earth is Charlie Small? Where on earth is Charlie Small??

These are the questions that we needed to answer for our new mini mission.

A mystery backpack had been left by Mrs Skilleter's table. Then a clue arrived, and then another and then some others...

Year 3 managed to work out that Charlie Small had ended up in South America! In the Amazon rainforest! Along the way to finding Charlie, we learned the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world and where the equator and tropics of Cancer and Capricorn were. We created a map of the world's biomes and learned about the layers of the rainforest and the animals that live in them. Sadly, we also learned about the effects of deforestation of the rainforest on the environment and the animals who live there.

The story of Charlie Small was fantastic! He got struck by lightning and ended up being transported to the Amazon Rainforest! While he was there he wrestled a crocodile, met a mechanical rhino and escaped from a pack of hungry hyenas!!

When he came face to face with a giant snake with huge pointed fangs, we decided that we should write this part of the story.

We brainstormed our ideas, created a story board to show the sequence of events and then acted out the story so that we knew the order. Finally, we wrote the chapter in our own little book. Make sure that you look in our mini mission books to read it!
