Year 3

Guess what!

You can share the best bits of your learning with Mrs Clark. Please ask your parents/carers to take a photo and email it to her at: year3@east-farleigh.kent.sch.uk


We cannot guarantee a reply to every email but we will read them all and may give you a special mention on our class page. Make sure you stick to our online safety rules (these are on our online safety page: https://www.east-farleigh.kent.sch.uk/key-information/online-safety

Easter Holidays

Congratulations! You've made it to the Easter holidays!

I have set you an Easter challenge - you need to get from 'start' to 'finish' and need to complete at least 9 of the activities. This is the shortest route. If you're feeling particularly creative, you can complete each activity. Rather than sending me photographs every day, create a photo diary on PowerPoint or if you have it, use the Diary Zapp app then send your completed challenges to me by the end of the holidays.

Most importantly, please have a rest, remember to be kind and go and make your grown up a nice cup of tea!

In our topic lessons we have been learning about the water cycle and climate change. Today I would like you to research climate change on www.kiddle.co and create a poster encouraging people to help to stop climate change. You might want to focus on how climate change is effecting humans, animals or the world around you.

Be as creative as possible. I'm looking for bright, colourful, neat and informative posters! I will choose the best three to put onto the website tomorrow.

Have fun! Missing you all.

Over the coming weeks, Young Voices will be offering a number of online tutorials, sing alongs and other goodies featuring the Young Voices team.

I really enjoyed looking at your work. Some of you have kept your parents very busy designing obstacle courses and you have produced some beautiful pieces of descriptive writing.

Times Tables Rock Stars is struggling a little this week with the huge amount of children who are logging on, it seems to be better later in the afternoon so maybe leave this job until then.

It is just by chance that Jane Considine decided to use 'The Blue Umbrella' - we spent the last three weeks producing a fantastic piece of writing based on this video. If you would like to continue this unit, I have attached the links again today and will continue to do so all week. If not, here is a continuation of the 'Soar' clip.

Today I would like you to watch the entire clip (see the link below) and write a character description of Mara using your neatest joined handwriting in your home learning book. Here is my example to give you a few ideas. Remember, these are my ideas. Think carefully, using the fantastics lenses to help you to form your description.

Here is my example.

Noticing lens

  • Complete one comprehension task (don't forget to press submit)

Please complete:

  • 20 mins on TTRS/NumberBots
  • 20 mins on MyMaths - today I would like you to complete the Place Value HTO task. Remember to click 'mark it'. If you score under 80%, have another go.

Why not play a game of maths countdown?



How to play:

Step 1: Set out 4 large number cards (25, 50, 75 and 100) face down and mixed up.

Step 2: Do the same with the 1 – 10 cards, making sure you have at least 2 cards for each number.

Step 3: Players take it in turns to select one of the big number cards or one of the small number cards, until there are 6 cards laid out all together.

Step 4: Someone who is playing the game needs to generate a 3-digit number. This can be by throwing a dice, or selecting cards from a pile of 0 to 9 cards.

Step 5: Once the number has been generated, turn over the six cards and players have to try and get to that total using any of the six number cards and any of the four operations.

Each card can only be used once and the winner is the first person to reach the total, or the player who is closest after a set length of time.

The game can be adapted for younger children, by choosing the numbers on the cards carefully and having them aiming to reach a 2-digit number, rather than a 3-digit number.

Topic/Creative

On a Tuesday afternoon we would usually be doing PE, so this afternoon I would like you to create your own team game to play with your family.

Your game must include:

  • jumping
  • hopping
  • running (this could be on the spot)

You might want to include:

  • equipment such as balls, hoops
  • marked out areas in your garden (if you have access to outside space)

Once you have created your game, write a set of rules in your home learning book in your neatest handwriting.

Our Class Book

This term we have been reading 'Mr Stink' by David Walliams. We have read up to Chapter 19.

Some of you were keen to tell me that you have the story at home, you might want to finish reading it with your grown up.


CBBC have created their own adaptation - this would be a lovely way to wind down at the end of a busy day.

Monday 23rd March 2020

Good morning and welcome to our virtual classroom!

Here is your learning for today. I will be checking in on TTRS, MyMaths and Spelling Shed. I will still be awarding ClassDojo points to those who are logging on daily.

We also have access to NumBots - you can get onto this with your TTRS log in.
