Welcome to Snowy Owls
Hello Snowy Owls,
We hope that you are all well and are really missing you all! It has been lovely seeing all of the wonderful things that you have been doing at home.
Nibbles is doing very well and loves speeding around in his ball and chasing Mrs Curran’s pet dog!
During the Summer Term we would have been learning about two very famous explorers. This is such a wonderful topic that we thought you may like to do some work on it at home.
I have attached folders linked to these but feel free to do your own activities.
Here are some ideas to help you:
- Writing a diary for Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus.
- Writing a letter to their families telling them about what they had discovered.
- Create your own topic fact files.
- Describe the settings they discovered e.g. what would it have been like on the moon?
- Create some space art using black paper/ crayon.
- Sketch some of the artefacts that Christopher Columbus discovered.
- Build your own rocket or ship for an explorer.
- Be an explorer…. What can you and your loved ones find in your garden or local area?
- Create a newspaper article showing what happened e.g. Armstrong Reaches Moon, Columbus Cracks it!
- Please continue to read at home as much as you can. This can be a school book or a book from home. If you have a computer or tablet you can find some lovely online stories to read with an adult.
- If you can do your accelerated reader quizzes. If you can’t ask a family member to quiz you.
- Write some yes/no questions about a book. Can you or a family member answer all of the questions?
- Make a book review for a book that you love! I have attached a template that you can use if you like.
- Don’t forget to write in your record book. When we go back to school we would love to see what you have been reading. You may even be able to suggest some books to your friends.
- Practise telling the time. If you can do o’clock and half past begin practicing quarter to, quarter past and 5 minute intervals. Year 3 you can also begin to look at digital time e.g. 1 o’clock in the afternoon is 13.00 on a digital clock! Perhaps you could use card or a paper plate to build your own clock?
- Addition and subtraction. Please use a method that you are confident with to add and subtract numbers. You could play shops and use your method to work out how much change to give.
Remember that you can draw base 10 to help you:
25p + 34p = 59P
II ….. + III…. = IIIII………
You can also use your number bonds:
73p + 17p = 90p
I know that 3p and 7p make 10 p so….. 10p + 70p + 10p =90p
If you are confident you can also use column method. We have attached some pictures of this to help you.
- Shape hunts are always fun. Make a list of all of the different shapes that you can find outside or in your home.
- For those of you who have tadpoles/ caterpillars you could keep a diary of their life cycles.
- Sketch plants outside and label the different parts. Can you find out what each part is used for?
- Do a minibeast hunt. What can you find? Can you sort the different minibeasts into groups?
- Cooking at home with an adult. What happens to the ingredients when you heat them?
- Fill up a tray with water. Explore which objects in your home float or sink. Make predictions first.
Here is a link to some great experiments that you can do at home with an adult:
The egg challenge is particularly good but can be messy too!
- Please find attached the times tables marathon if you would like to work on these at home.
If you have any questions or if there is anything else that you would like to help with your learning at home please just ask.
Mrs Curran has compiled further support links for after the Easter holiday, downloadable on the right hand side on this page. These are for anyone who would like some alterative ideas of things to do.
