Wednesday 10th February
Good morning, Year 3. Well done for continuing to work so hard at home. We are proud of you.
Remember, you have all been set a challenge to improve your recall of the 2, 5 and 10 times table. Practice these tables everyday and ask an adult to test you on them daily.
Zoom calls will continue at the usual times and the links can be found on the year 3 home learning page.

For the rest of this week, we will be focussing on poetry and will be writing poems using our senses. We will be focussing the poems on the theme “outdoors”.
Today, I would like you to go outside. You could go to your garden or yard or you could incorporate this lesson into your exercise for the day and go for a walk.
I want you to think about the questions below. You could also collect objects to bring back to your house to remind you of being outside.
What can you see? What can you hear? What can you feel? What can you smell? What can you taste?
Generate adjectives and similes for all of of the things you experience outside. Use powerful verbs and adverbs to describe what things are doing outside.
I went outside and generated some ideas. Set your work out like I have below by using a heading for each sense.
What can I see?
- Strands of green grass dancing in the breeze
- Bright, white snow covering the green grass like a blanket
- Snow clouds as grey as steel
What can I hear?
- Birds singing beautifully
- The rumble of car engines in the distance
- The wind whistling
What can I smell?
- The fresh, clean air
What can I touch?
- Snow as cold as ice
- Thick, oozy mud
- Rough bark on the tall, towering trees
What can I taste?
- The ice cold air.
Today is our reciprocal reading session and you will be taking on the role of the clarifier. While you are reading the text try to think about what others might find confusing.
- Choose 3 words from the text that you think others might need explaining and clarify each word.
- Why do you think that Emma uses the word boring to describe her Dad?
- Using evidence from the text, explain how the writer makes you think that Emma is not ready to get a puppy.
As today is our last lesson on rocks, we would usually be completing our gold piece of work. I would like you to use your knowledge of our rocks topic to complete the questions below. You can look back over the work that you have completed during the topic to help.
