Year 3

Remote Learning for Monday 6th July 2020 

Good morning everyone! 

We hope you’ve all had a great weekend! 

This week’s task is all about YOU! We would love to find out more about you and your family history and today is just the very beginning!   

Firstly, watch the video on the school website and Facebook page to find out some things you might not have known about your teachers… 

Now, it’s your turn! We would love you to make a presentation today that is all about you! 

You could: 

  • Paint or draw a self-portrait 
  • Design a poster all about you  
  • Write about your likes and dislikes – what’s your favourite food? Your favourite film or toy? Your favourite place?
  • Make a video presentation all about you – you could show off your best talent or take us on a tour of your favourite parts of your house 

Every year, at the end of Year 6, the Year 6 pupils make a huge poster called ‘My Life so Far’ made of photos and stories of all the things that have happened to them since being born 11 years before. We hang them in the hall and have so much fun seeing how much we have all grown and, although we can’t do quite the same thing, we thought some of you might like to spend some time this week making one of your own. 

You could include: 

  • Photos of you as a baby and through your life so far 
  • The best moments in your life so far.
  • Your favourite holiday.
  • Your biggest achievement. 
  • Your brothers and sisters and other family members 

Here is an example from Mrs Dodd’s twin sons, who did this very task when they left St James’ 7 years ago, alongside some other examples from years gone by. 

         

            

It would be great if you could upload these to your class’ SharePoint folder so we can all share and enjoy each other’s work, much like we would be doing with Year 6 if we were all at school! 

 Guess the baby photo! 

For a bit of fun today, we have collected a baby photo from some of the teachers and TAs at our school. Have a go at working with your families to see if you can match each baby photo to the correct teacher or TA. The answers are on the slide after each photo so you can see if you were right. The PowerPoint is attached to this email. 

Here’s the Guess the Baby PowerPoint Presentation version and here is the Guess the Baby PDF which may work better for phones and tablets.

 

Maths: 

An angle measures the amount of turn. Today we are going to be looking at right angles and trying to recognise them in different shapes. 

A right angle is an angle measuring exactly 90°. It forms a perfect ‘L’ or corner shape. It can look like these too… 

Watch the PowerPoint to help you understand.

Have a safe and fun-filled day. 

Love, 

Year 3 Team.
