Year 3 Home Learning Page
Wow is it really the last week of this half term?!!
I bet you are all ready for a week off from home learning now, you have been doing brilliantly. We hope that you have a lovely half term break spent at home with your families. Let’s hope the weather is nice and you can spend lots of time outside!
Week Beginning: Monday 18th May 2020
Please keep logging into Purple Mash every day to see which new activities have been added. Lots of you are going on regularly and it really makes my day to see your wonderful work and read your comments. Please keep it going! I absolutely loved seeing some of you as Zeus last week, it was brilliant! You really got into the correct mindsight, I think you would make wonderful Greek gods and goddesses!
Watch this video on ordering 3 digit numbers with the Numbervator and then have a go at these problems on ‘ordering numbers’. If you get stuck on anything or want to know the answers to these problems then please don’t hesitate to email us.
Visit this website to read about all of the main gods and goddesses that the Ancient Greeks believed in. Choose the one who interests you the most and then create a fact file on them in your workbook. You might want to use the following sub headings to structure your fact file (but don’t worry if they don’t fit your chosen god or goddess – you may even want to add in your own!)
- Physical description (What do they look like? How do they dress? Does he/she carry something with him/her? Do they have physical characteristics that are different from the other gods and goddesses?)
- Characteristics (What are they like? Do they have any flaws? Any particular behaviours that have caused trouble for this god or goddess?)
- Famous acts (What are they well known for doing?)
- Allies (Who are their friends/partners in crime?)
- Family (Do they have any special family relationships?)
- Hangouts (Where would this god/goddess be found?)
- Symbols (Are there any particular symbols that represent this god/goddess?)
Did you know that the Olympics started in Ancient Greece? It was a huge event and even though the different states were often at war there was always peace during the games. Carry out your own research about the Ancient Greek Olympics and then answer these questions in your workbook:
- When did the Olympics start?
- Who were they in honour of?
- How often did they take place?
- Which sports were at the Ancient Olympics?
- What is different about the Olympics today?
- Have you learnt any interesting facts about the Olympics in Ancient Greece?
Here are some useful websites you could visit:
Design and Technology
At the ancient Olympic games, winners were usually awarded with a crown made of olive leaves. Can you make your own olive leaf crown like the one below? Please email us photos of you wearing your finished crown!
Having learnt all about where and how the Olympics were created, why not set up your own Olympic games at home? You could plan your own events such as long jump, discus and running. You could even make your own medals! Good luck!
What are flowers for?
Watch this video to learn about why plants have flowers and then have a go at dissecting a single plant’s flower (with an adults help). Can you identify its features, including its male and/or female parts? Draw and label the key parts of a flower in your workbook and describe how they enable plants to reproduce as part of their life cycle.
To finish off our topic on Pentecost, try unscrambling these words that feature in the story of Pentecost. Write the words that you think they are (when they are unscrambled) in your workbook. The answers are included on the second page so you can check if you are correct! Refer back to the previous home learning pages for a PowerPoint and websites about Pentecost if you need a recap of the story.
Have fun squirrels!
