Year 3 Distance Learning Week 2 Day 3

Wednesday, April 1st 2020

Good Morning. I have posted this work on Google Classroom as well. Please feel free to try. I am hoping it works for you. Please let me know if there are issues and I'll try my best to help.

Just a reminder how to carry out the work:

Bronze – all complete

Silver – additional challenge

Gold – high challenge

Literacy: HF words for this week. Please carry out Blue Vowels activity whereby you write out the word but each vowel must be in blue –

want, wanted, water, where, which, white, who, why, wish and window

L.O: To write a short story including speech reading comprehension skills

We have already looked at using speech marks or inverted commas this week so use those skills that you have learnt to include in a short story about anything you'd like. Remember to punctuate like those examples below and a new speaker goes on a new line.

For example: "Hello," said the shopkeeper. Or:  The shopkeeper said, "Hello."

Hello?" the shopkeeper asked nervously,

"Hello!" shouted the annoyed shopkeeper.

Bronze Level – Write sentences including speech marks with a comma or question mark.

Silver Level – Write sentences including speech marks with a comma, exclamation mark or question mark.

Gold Level – Also try the speaker before the speech as well as after



Warm up: Practise your x4 & x8 tables. Remember if you can do your x4 then just double these answers for x8. Also log in to Hwb and then click on J2E and use the

 TT Blast which is an interactive game to help with times tables speed. You can access this daily to improve on score and speed.


L.O: To use the column method for subtraction to solve written problems

Watch the video again if you need to go back through
