UPDATE Thursday 4th June  2020

Hello Manatee and Marlins! 

We hope that you are well and keep on doing things that make you feel happy! Remember, keep getting a bit of fresh air, snuggling under a blanket to read a book or comic, playing imaginative games and just being with your family. 

Miss Blankson and Miss Malone have been busy at school getting ready to welcome a few more children from year one and reception back to class, it all looks very different at the moment, but we know that one day things will be all back to normal for you. 

If you do go out for a walk with a member of your family, you could find somewhere to sit or stand and do a bit of birdwatching! Although we live in a city, there are lots of places to go to watch the wildlife. Maybe the patch, or the cemetary or just a field. Some of you may have a garden and can do some birdwatching there. Above is a sheet to help you if you fancy doing some birdwatching..

We are starting a topic called ' Ourselves' so it might be nice to think about what makes you, you! We are all individuals with a lot of differences and similarities between ourselves and others. Why not think of some of your own 'top fives?' Make a list ( or draw and label) these things. You could also ask your grown up or a sibling to make their lists too and compare to see if there are any similarities or differences..

What are your top five favourite foods?

What are your top five favourite animals?

What are the top five things that you'd like to do when you are a grown - up?

What are your top five favourite funny jokes?

What are your top five favourite books or stories?

What are the top five places that you'd like to visit one day?

We would love to know, and we will let you know our top fives next week!
We miss you a lot- lots of love from Miss Malone and Miss Blankson

xx

 

 

UPDATE Monday 1/6/20

Hi Manatee and Marlins, 

 

We hope that you have had a lovely half term although we're sure it has felt like every other week! The weather has been beautiful and very hot. Lots of sun cream has definitely been needed. 

We hope that you enjoyed being able to choose between a range of activities for your learning last week. Remember, you can always come back to work set previous weeks if you did not get a chance to complete any of it.

 

We hope you have a lovely week, Stay safe, wear lots of sun cream and most of all have fun learning :)

Geography: 

Ordnance Survey maps were first made for the military in the 1700s, but it wasn’t until the early 20th century that they started work on the maps we might recognise today. These maps were all drawn and labelled by hand… can you imagine the numbers of people, and the time that would take… never mind how much paper!

Thursday 21.05.20 UPDATE

Hello Manatee and Marlins! We hope that you are all well and happy and enjoying the lovely weather! Today we will be learning about the River Nile and answering the question: Why was the River Nile so important to Ancient Egyptians?

 

Please start by having a good look through the power point above and finding ten facts about the Nile. Can you write these facts down as ten bullet points?

 

There was an amazing invention called a shaduf which helped farmers to water their crops, read a little bit about it and watch a clip here: Shaduf!

If you'd like to make a shaduf of your own- follow the instructions below - You may not have dowel at home but you can use garden sticks, chopsticks, pencils or even sturdy twigs that you pick up if you go out for a walk!

 

Animals and birds in and around the River Nile. There is so much amazing wildlife in and around the river Nile. Why not do an internet search and see what research you can come up with? You could choose one animal to create a powerpoint presentation or poster about. 

Wildlife in the river Nile

We miss you very much - keep emailing us!

Lots of love from Miss Malone and Miss Blankson xxx

Good Morning Manatee and Marlins, 

We hope you had a brilliant weekend! 

We also hope you are all well, staying safe, learning but also relaxing and enjoying yourselves! We're already in the final week of this term!  Time seems to be flying by at the moment.  Think what you have achieved since we last saw each other  - some of you have been learning instruments and others have been making lots of delicious foods.
 
We were in school last week having lots of fun teaching children new skills. The children have been doing lots of crafts, they have also been taking part in the virtual sports competition challenges which they have been really enjoying! 
We hope you all have a fantastic week.  Good luck and remember to be the best you can be!

Session 2 - 

Read pages 20-42, using the pdf below
Task: Ivan can hear some music coming into the forest. Tell me where you think the music is coming from and draw a picture of Ivan and the new place. Write one strong sentence to describe Ivan arriving at the new place. Remember to use expanded noun phrases, adverbs and prepositions.

Session 3 -

Read Ice Palace pg. 42-58
Task: Draw a picture of what you think the old lady found in the snow. Tell me why you think it will be important. Use adjectives and adverbs to describe the item.

Task: Read Ice Palace (pg. 59-72)
Ivan has come face to face with his enemy, Starjik. Draw a picture of the two characters meeting. Tell me what you think Ivan would say to Starjik and what Starjik might say back.
Remember to use inverted commas (speech marks) for direct speech and synonyms for said.
Ext: Use different synonyms for said and explore how it changes the feeling of what is being said

 

Sessions 5- 

Task: Read the Ice Palace pg. 72-91
Listen to or read the last paragraph again. Show me what Starjik looks like now by drawing a picture. Annotate your drawing using adjectives and adverbs to explain how he feels.

 Writing Task:

From this week we are going to set  a weekly writing task. We recommend that you spend 30 minutes a day on it - Plan > Write > Edit > Publish (if wanted).


The small but friendly local zoo Drusillas Park has made a shocking announcement this week! This could result in wild animals roaming free outside our front door or in
our back garden…
What is your personal opinion? Would you like these zoo animals roaming the streets of Brighton? Your task for this week is to write a formal letter to Drusillas Park to tell them what you think!

 Please send a photo to us once it is completed! We would love to read them.

ART:

Create a colour wheel collage using items from around your house. This could be larger items, which you could use to create a display on your floor such as book covers, cushions, sheets or shoes or it could be smaller items, which you could display on a table such as food packaging, buttons, beads or Lego. However, you choose to present your work, you need to make sure it follows the structure of the colour wheel, which accompanies this piece of work. 

                                                                                                      

History - Egyptians:

The Ancient Egyptians didn’t spend all their time working or preparing for the afterlife. They also liked to play lots of board games - especially the adults! That is why this week we would like you to learn about what games the Ancient Egyptians played. Click on the image below. 

After you have finished looking into the different games that they played why not make your own Egyptian game. You could use the templates below or be extremely creative and make it out of Junk modelling and other materials you may have around your house.

We hope you have fun playing them!

Egyptian Day Activities 

 

Have a fun day and do try out some of these activities!

First it's time for a song....The Mummy Song!

 

Now lets investigate Egyptian Heiroglyphics... Have a look at this, can you write your name and any names of members of your family using Ancient Heiroglyphics? You could even write a note and ask somebody that you live with to crack the code.. Send in photos if you can!

Now why not watch some clips, have a good look through these and make some notes while you are watching them about what you've learned. Remember when we wrote notes and make bullet points about India?

BBC Ancient Egypt

 

If we were in school today, we would be using photographs of ourselves to create Ancient Egypt style portraits. You may not be able to do these at home using a photograph of yourself but why not paint a portrait of yourself as an Ancient Egyptian Pharoah ( Royalty) ? Remember the dark kohl eyeliner and crown, also the more golden jewellery, the better! You could stick foil or shiny sweetie wrappers onto your artwork.

 

If you want to do some writing, why not look through our BBC clips and write a diary as if you lived in Ancient Egypt. What might you be doing? What can you see around you? What do you believe in? Before you start, why not use a tea bag on your paper to make it look like papyrus. Remember to wait until it dries before you start writing though!

Have a lovely day! We will check back later to add photos that you send in! We miss you a lot year three, lots of love from Miss Malone and Miss Blankson xxxx

Remember we are all in this together and if you want to chat to Miss Blankson or Miss Malone, you can message us at workathome@fairlight.brighton-hove.sch.uk with your work or any questions you may have.

Good morning Manatee and Marlins!

We hope that you and your families are happy, safe and well. Miss Blankson and Miss Malone are missing you lots and are still absolutely LOVING your photos and emails. Please continue with the tasks that we've set for you from Monday and also have a look at these things too.

Puppet show! If you have been looking at our science topic Light and Dark you might have thought of making your own shadow puppet. There is a puppet company from Brighton who have made a lovely puppet show with some shadow puppet sections included in it. They make all of their puppets themselves. This show is so calm and lovely to watch with your family, Miss Malone has been to see it and now it's available for free online. It is funny and the music is great too! Have a watch, you might be inspired to make your own show! The first ten minutes is the author of the show talking which is interesting but you can skip this part if you want to get straight to the show!

PSHE:

Some children may be getting a little worried about all that is happening around them in the world. When things are not as we expect them to be we can start to feel a little worried and find ourselves with butterflies in our stomach or not sure how to talk about things. First, read the ‘my name is coronavirus’ file which will help you understand a little more. We then have an activity for you to do during the week.

 Make a worry doll.


A worry doll is a great way of helping you to think about and manage your worries.By sharing the worry with the worry doll, you can give yourself time to think about what is worrying you. Sharing these thoughts with the worry doll can help you to feel better and may even help you to solve the worry yourself. The idea is that you share your worries with the worry doll at night time and then put the worry doll under your pillow. Hopefully, when you wake up, your worries will have reduced/gone completely and you will feel calmer for the day ahead. If your worry hasn’t gone – you should speak to a trusted adult about them. This could be a parent or teacher.

There are several ways you can make a worry doll: Just colour one in on paper, or be a bit more creative and make one with a peg/pipe cleaners/lolly pop sticks/sow using a sock/other material or any other way you like!  click on these links to help you -

Hello Manatee and Marlins!

We hope that you are keeping well and feeling happy, we miss you a lot but we have been enjoying seeing your photos that you've been emailing in so do keep them coming, even if you want to email and just tell us any news or just to say hello, please do!

Today we will be looking at science and topic.

Science

As you know, our topic is all about 'light and dark.'

This is a really good online session with some clips to watch so do have a look!

BBC light and dark

Topic

Ancient Egyptians believed in the afterlife. This means that they believed that when a person died, they would make a journey to another world and lead a brand new life! This is why they made the bodies of some important people into 'mummies' and even buried all their precious belongings with them! Have a look at this website for some more information:

Ancient Egypt

 

This is an online mummy making game:Mummy Maker

 

Here is a fun and silly song that we usually learn with year three at this time of year! Have fun singing it, it is one of Miss Malone and Miss Blankson's favourites!

The Mummy Song!

Here are some ideas for easy egyptian crafts but please feel free to get creative and have a look on pinterest to design and make your own!

Egyptian crafts

These mummies look like fun- you could make a family of these!

If you don't have masking tape you could use any kind of paper, fabric or even loo roll! And you can make your own eyes of you don't have the googly ones ( less plastic this way too!)

Toilet roll mummies!

Please send in photos of any ancient egypt crafts that you do!

LITERACY WARM UP: GRAMMER & PUNCTUATION SKILLS

Keeping up with your grammar and punctuation happens best through the writing process: beginning first of all with the most important step of reading good quality writing to see examples of great writing and effective grammar; then modeling and emulating good sentences, composing your own examples based on modeled examples; putting it to good use by doing great writing and trying to be varied in the kinds of sentence you compose; and finally reviewing your writing to improve, redraft and edit as you go as part of your writing process; and remembering that there is nothing wrong about talking with someone else, sharing and reading your work together.

If you click on these links you'll find some Easter Bunny themed yoga and even a yoga disco! Miss M and Miss B especially loved this one ( don't worry there's no embarrassing video evidence!)

Tuesday update 07.04.20

Hi year three! We hope that you are all well, happy and keeping busy! Thank you so much for the photos of what you have been up to - we so enjoy seeing your photos and will keep on adding them to the gallery pages!

It is nearly Easter so today we have chosen some Easter themed activities for those of you who would like to do them. Why not have some fun, make yourself a cardboard set of rabbit ears, a paper chain to decorate your house or bedroom, or write clues for a treasure hunt for your grown- up or another family member that they can do around the house or the garden? Have an egg and spoon race ( You don't have to use real eggs as this could get messy!)  Make an Easter cake, sometimes you don't even need a recipe- just make it up! We hope that you are still going out for a walk each day to get some sunshine and fresh air.

Love from Miss Malone and Miss Blankson xxx

Science: Our science topic is 'Light and Dark' which is great as this sunny weather is showing us a lot of shadows! Why not keep a look out for shadows? You could set some toys up on the window ledge and draw around their shadows, notice how the shadows change shape throughout the day if you leave the toys in the same position.  

Have a look at these clips, can you make a spider diagram of different light sources?

OR why not make some shadow puppets? They don't have to be made of black card, a cereal box will do. You could attach them to pencils which you can re - use! As long as you've got a light, you can show the shadow puppets on a wall, or even outside using the sun as your light source! You could tell some indoan stories that we learned in school or make up your own! Click this link below for some ideas..

Shadow Puppets!

Hi All, 

We hope you're all well! We have been busy checking our emails and have really enjoyed looking at some of the amazing things that you have been up to. We would love to see some of your Indian projects soon.Remember to have a look at Manatees and Marlins Galleries to see what your friends have been up to. Don't forget If you have been doing something cool or funny that you want to share with us, you can email it to workathome@fairlight.brighton-hove.sch.uk. Don't forget to say it is for Miss B and Miss M!

Remember to keep doing things that make you happy. Bake a cake and paint pictures. Play board games and watch movies. Do a science experiment or find virtual field trips of the zoo online.Read a new book and snuggle under a warm blanket. Remember all the things we discussed that you can do to make the most of your time away from school.

Keep looking after yourselves and each other.

 

Love from Miss Blankson and Miss Malone xXx

 

Maths -Fractions

We would have been starting our unit on fractions next week in Maths. We have included the White Rose Year 3 Fractions Mastery Planning that we use as a school to develop fluency, mastery and reasoning skills.They are currently producing 5 free lessons of learning each week for the children to complete

 

Maths - fundamental practise: 

Practicing the fundamental mental maths skills - such as times tables - that support our calculation and problem-solving is an important job that can be done every day at home. We have uploaded a series of short tests that your child can try and time themselves with here: Maths Fundamentals Quick Quizzes. Every week Year 3 also practice our calculation skills so that we don't get rusty: download all the BEAT THAT MATHS! quizzes here! Year 3 do Level 2 and 3 (L2 and L3 are written on the bottom right-hand corner). Don't forget to log on to 'Times Tables Rockstars - a site full of maths games and activities. Every child has a login for this. If your child does not remember their login then please email us on the email above and we will send their login details over to you.

THURSDAY UPDATE (26.03.20) FROM Miss Blankson and Miss Malone:

Good morning all! We hope you and your loved ones are well? We have been in school this week and we miss you all! We will continue to update this page every Tuesday and Thursday morning with things for you to do. In the meantime, why not send us some pictures of what you have been up to at home so we can post them on the Year 3 'Gallery' page? Just say Miss B and Miss M and email them to: workathome@fairlight.brighton-hove.sch.uk. We would love to see what you have been up to and how you have been keeping yourselves busy. 

How are your Indian projects coming along? When you have completed this, then why not move on to completing your very own project on something you are particular interested in? this could be based on anything you like. If you have not started your project yet then look at the letter below for ideas of what children have created in the past. 

Take care x 

 

Maths:

Continue to use 'timestable rockstars' to practise your timetables. By the end of year 3 children should know their 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables!  

 

You can also support your child at home by helping them to become confident at telling the time on an analogue clock.  

 

Year 3 learning aims:

  • Tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII, and 12-hour and 24-hour clocks.
  • Estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute. Record and compare time in terms of seconds, minutes and hours (single unit only).
  • Use vocabulary such as o’clock, a.m./p.m., morning, afternoon, noon and midnight.
  • Know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year.
  • Compare durations of events [for example to calculate the time taken by particular events or tasks.

 

Activities:

Make your own analogue clock.

What do the hands do?

What do the numbers represent?

What time do you normally get out of bed, have lunch, have dinner, go to bed?

Can you make a time table of what you are going to do each day?

How long are you going to spend on each activity

Look at the clock before you start and again at the end. How have the hands changed? How long did it take you to do that activity

Spelling: Remember to keep practising your Year 3/4 spellings using the methods we have taught you. The list of spellings are below. 

Tuesday 24th March 2020

Hello Marlins and Manatees! We hope that you are OK and that you have managed to do a little bit of learning each day, if you can!

Maths: Times tables songs ! Look on the Fairlight website Maths page and remember some of our songs - why not challenge yourself to learn a new one?

Pobble 365: Choose the picture that you like and answer some of the questions - you can write these down or just talk to someone about them. If you want to, you can use the 'story starter' part to write your own story. Remember to be creative, let your imagination loose! ( and keep that handwriting neat!)

Art idea: Why not draw or paint a rainbow and put it in a window at the front of your home. That way when other children are out for a walk, they can have fun spotting lots of rainbows that have been painted by children learning at home, just like you! Some will be up high in flats, some nearer to the street so get spotting! You can use paint, pencils, felt tips or crayons. If you don't have any of these don't worry, just ask your grown up to ring or email us at school and we can arrange to get a few things over to you so that you can be creative!

We will add more to our website on Thursday so look for our next update!

Lots of love,

Miss Malone and Miss Blankson
