Year 3 distance learning day 1

Monday, March 23rd 2020

Hi Year threes and parents. Hope everyone is fit and healthy. So here goes then:


These activities should take around 35 to 45 minutes

Please write sentences for the following high frequency spellings using the Word Document that can be accessed via Hwb. Please ensure capital letters and full stops are used. Here are the words:  

than, that, there's, these, thing, things, think, thought, three and through

Those children who are normally with my class for literacy can have a go at including speech marks (inverted commas), exclamation marks and question marks within these sentences where you see necessary.

Pupils who attend Read Write Inc. sessions can include question marks or exclamation marks.

Once these are finished you can use this website to carry out work on recognising common and proper nouns: activities/languages/words/naming-nouns/

Work through the slides of common nouns and proper nouns to carry out the interactive drag and drop game at the end.

Following this: Write a list of common nouns and of proper nouns.



This should take around 50 minutes

Warm up: Practise your x3 & x6 tables. Remember if you can do your x3 then just double these answers for x6.

L.O: To use the column method for addition

The website below has easy to follow steps. It begins with single digits and moves on to examples of two digit numbers. It's great as it shows how to set out and how to show workings.  Watch until example 4 is finished. You may want to have a go alongside the video or after a while go off and do your own.

Scalenes children – practise with single digits before moving on to double digits

Isosceles children – practise with double digits moving on to 3 digits (continue with video for s digits)

Equilaterals  children – practise with double digits then move on to 3 digit & 4 digit  numbers (continue with video for 4 digits )

Extension: write a word problem that someone else has to answer involving addition with the column method.

You can carry this work out in the exercise books provided.



L.O: To learn types of clothing

Warm up: Practise these questions and answers orally. You can learn alongside your child with these a few times a week.

Beth yw d'enw di? (What's your name?)                …..ydw i.

Ble rwy't ti'n byw? (Where do you live?)     Dwi'n byw yn…….

Sut wyt ti? (How are you?)                         Dwi'n ……

Ble rwy't ti'n mynd i'r ysgol? (Where do you go to school)    Dw'in mynd i ysgol…….

Pa lliw ydy dy gwallt di? (What colour is your hair?)     Mae gwallt…….da fi

Pa lliw ydy dy llygaid di? (What colour are your eyes?)     Mae llygaid……da fi

Faint ydy d'oed di? (How old are you?)       Dwi'n ……oed



Use the internet to translate types of clothing into Welsh. Find six or seven including footwear then practise the question and answer:

Beth wyt ti'n gwisgo? (What are you wearing?)  Dw'in gwisgo…… (I'm wearing….)


Write out  the answers in sentences using the exercise book having asked people in the household or just them make up to practise spellings.
