General Timetable for Year 3

Whole Class Guided Reading

Please access Read Theory for Whole Class Guided Reading. Aim to complete 3 quizzes a day. 

Remember to read to someone in your house three times a week. 

SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar)

For spelling please log in to spelling shed and practice your Year 1 & 2 words and Year 3 & 4 words. 

 

For punctuation and grammar try to complete one SPaG mat a week. There are three levels of difficulty, see if you can challenge yourself! The answers are at the bottom of the pdf. 

It is always helpful to practice capital letters, full stops and inverted commas (speech marks) as these are things which we are finding tricky. 

 

You can also access some wonderful SPaG resources on Oak National Academy: https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-3/subjects/english-grammar

Handwriting

Remember that you can access Letterjoin at home - see the instructions on the Class Pages home page, where there is a hyperlink.  Alternatively any concentrated practice, copying poems or paragraphs from books, will be good handwriting practice.

Guidance for using our timetable for Home Learning

 

Maths - we use White Rose maths for home learning, as this follows the pattern of our Maths No Problem scheme in school but is easier to use at home.

 

PE - when following this timetable for home learning, if self-isolating and not poorly, then substitute any form of exercise for the Yoga or Football - there are many excellent resources on the internet.

 

English - we recognise that it is hard to follow the same pattern as in school without the input of the teacher to explain and guide, therefore, we are directing you to English units developed for home learning by Pie Corbett, the author of the Talk for Writing method that we use in school.

 

Art - again our lessons depend on resources and input at school, therefore when home any design technology, drawing, painting, sketching, sewing or baking may be substituted for the Art/DT lesson on the timetable.  This term we are focusing on the artist Georgia O'Keeffe and drawing in her style - see if you can do some research and mimic her beautiful paintings!

There are also excellent resources on the Oak National Academy website.

 

Spellings - Please look on page 19 of your diary to learn your Year 3 and 4 Spellings Words. If you have got a Year 1 and 2 Spelling Sheet at home please learn those that are highlighted green.
