Home learning, Monday 18th – Friday 22nd January

Hello Year 3!

We hope you have had a lovely weekend!  Please find below the home learning activities for this week.  We would like you to complete three activities each day and upload them to Seesaw each day to show us how you have got on so that we may give you feedback.

This week, there will be three Zooms:

Monday – KS2 worship

Wednesday – Our class Zoom 

Friday – Class celebration assembly

Parents, please check Seesaw regularly for meeting times and sign-in codes.

Spellings to learn for next week’s Wednesday Zoom – Spellings, w.c. 18.01.21.docx


English – Watch my video on Seesaw first, which will put our week into a wider context.  This week’s English will be heavily linked to Topic as well as Wednesday’s class Zoom.

When you have watched my video, watch this clip  (remember to imagine that the little girl in the clip is Om):

Activity 1 – Answer the questions about Mesolithic hunter-gatherers.  The questions are in the order that the answers appear in the clip.  Remember to answer in complete sentences, with capital letters and full stops, and double-check that your sentences are complete and make sense.

Monday – Comprehension questions

Monday – Comprehension questions, Capital Letters and Full Stops

Activity 2 – Use your new knowledge from today’s lesson to sort these problems into problems for Mesolithic girls/women and problems for Mesolithic boys/men.

Monday, Activity 2 – Stone Age problems…


Warm up task: Practise your 3, 4 and 5 times tables.  Say them aloud (1×3 = 3…), say the multiples (0,3,6…) and get an adult to ask you questions out of order.

Teaching video 3 (Diving 2 digits by 1 digit(1)):

Circle group only – watch the video (video 4, 5 times tables) and try these questions: Monday – Circlegroup-The-5-times-table

English – Watch my teaching video on Seesaw first, which will put today’s lesson into a wider context for you and introduce today’s research activity (further information on ppt below).  The work you complete today will be really important to support your writing later in the week, so please keep your information leaflet / poster somewhere safe.

More about the Stone Age (pdf.)


Warm up task – times tables rock stars

Teaching video 4 (Diving 2 digits by 1 digit):

Circle group only – watch the video (video 5, 10 times tables) and try these questions: Tuesday – circlegroup-The-10-times-table

Topic – Today you are going to be archaeologists!  Find out what an archaeologist is and why their discoveries are so important here:

Then complete this activity – can you match the images to their descriptions?  Read them carefully!  You can either complete this as a cut and stick matching activity or, if you don’t have a printer, write a list of the matching numbers and letters, e.g. 2e.  Challenge yourself to answer the questions in the boxes too to show me your thoughts and understanding.  Archaeology activity


English –  Warm up:  Complete one of the set activities on

Please watch my lesson on Seesaw and then complete your own thought and feelings bubbles for Om.  Consider the things you have learned about the Stone Age so far as you write your 1st-person responses.  We will be using these in our class hot-seating activity this afternoon, so keep them handy!

Wednesday – thought and heart bubbles


Warm up task:  Log on to Purple Mash.  Click on Click on maths then 2simple tabletoons.  Choose one of the times tables songs to listen to from both the 4 and 8 times tables.  Then click the ‘To Dos’ on the top tool bar.  Have a go at playing the recall game.  There are other songs and games you can listen to and play on purple mash which will help you to learn your times tables.

Activity – Wednesday further Division 2 digits by 1 digit (1)

Circle group only – watch the video (video 1, make equal groups – sharing) and try these questions: Wednesday-circlegroup-Make-equal-groups-sharing-2020

Science – I would like you to watch this clip, which teaches us about the organs (parts) inside a flower and why they are important. For your science activity this week, I would like you to add to your plant from last week and include and label:

-the stamen (anther and filament)

-the carpel, sepals and receptacle

-the nectaries.

For instance, one way you could add the stamens is to use one end of an ear bud painted yellow and poked into / stuck onto your plant. If you haven’t had chance to make your plant yet, you can include these features in your creation. If you have already made your plant but you don’t feel you have space for these features, you could build/draw these parts of the plant separately.


English –  Please watch my teaching video on Seesaw, which contains all of the support material for today’s lesson.  You will be writing a 1st-person recount about a day in the life of a stone age girl – specifically, Om.  You will write about her morning today and her afternoon tomorrow.  Listen carefully for everything I would expect to see, and try to write for about 45 minutes each day as this is the culmination of our unit of work and I would love you to use this activity to showcase everything you have learned about diary recounts.


Warm up task:

Teaching video 5 (Diving 100 into 2, 4, 5 and 10 equal parts):

Activity – there is no set worksheet today, however, we expect that you should join in with the above video, trying to work out answers and do the activities.

Circle group only – watch the video (video 2, make equal groups – sharing) and try these questions: Thursday-circlegroup-Make-equal-groups-sharing-2019


Parent/carer notes to Activity 3 – Picture Wise 

Sharing photos online is a fun and easy way to let our friends and family know what is happening in our lives. Photos can be shared through messages on mobile phones, emails, instant messaging, photo sharing websites and social networks.

Children need to understand that once a photo is posted online it can be copied (using a screenshot) and sent on to others. 

Photos can be altered digitally to make fun of (usually in a very unkind way), ridicule or embarrass others. 

A photo shared in a public forum online can be downloaded and viewed or used by anyone in the world. 

Photos can be “geotagged” meaning that the exact location of the photo will be recorded and could be shared with others. 

Photos are often “captioned” by the person who took the photo. Other people – friends, family and strangers, may also be able to comment about the photo or the caption. Children need to know that they should not reveal anything personal or private about themselves in the photo or in the caption that accompanies it. 

Photos can be “tagged” on social networks. The “tag” identifies the name and identity of the person in the photo. It is good Cyber Ethics always to ask permission before “tagging” another person in a photo – or even just posting a picture of them without asking.

In the future, face recognition software may be capable of searching out photos of individuals from many web sites. This means that photos we post now may be accessible in the years to come. What we may consider funny or cute now may be embarrassing to us when we are older and applying for jobs etc..

If your child is a registered user of any photo sharing or social media sites, it’s a good idea to take this opportunity to examine their privacy settings.

For more help and advice, go to the NSPCC website’s Keeping Children Safe page.

Activity 3 – Picture Wise 

Sharing photos with family and friends is a great way to connect and keep in touch. We need to make sure that we’re keeping ourselves and others safe and that we’re being kind and respectful. We should always remember to think before we share.

Click on the Picture Wise activity, below, then follow the instructions to help you decide if it is ‘safe’ or ‘unsafe’ to share the image. Discuss the questions underneath with your parent or adult helper, if they’re available.

Questions to discuss with your adult helper

  • Who could this photo be shared with? Why? 
  • Who wouldn’t we share this photo with? Why? 
  • Would another person feel hurt, embarrassed or unsafe if this photo was posted to others e.g. friends, on online? Why? 
  • Is this photo safe to post on a public site? Why/Why not? E.g. does the photo show personal information such as the subject’s name, school or address from the photo? 
  • How could the photo be changed to make it safer? (e.g. not showing the logo on a school uniform, not showing street signs, not using “geo-tagging” options on the phone or camera setting.)
