Final Term Week 4
Welcome to Week 4 of your home learning Class 3! I hope you've had another lovely weekend, spending lots of time with your families. I'm hoping the weather stays sunny now this week so we can get out and do some fantastic things! Don't forget to send your pictures over to us so we can add them to the website and to inspire others. Remember, these activities are suggestions and to try and complete as much as you can!
Check out what you have all been up to so far...
Here we have two super stories written and illustrated by Cole and Carsyn. Super work both of you!
Look at what Roxy has been doing for her home learning! Well done, Roxy!
Here are some super drawings from Molly! Did you all enjoy the drawing tutorials too?
Some of our class members have been finding some amazing animals in their gardens! Can you name them? Have you ever seen these type of animals before? Make sure you have a good look around your garden the next time you're out, to see if you can find any amazing animals making your garden a home!
I wonder who will be 'Netherseal Star of the Week' this week?
Friday 26th June
Well done for completing another week of home learning, Class 3! I really hope you have enjoyed the chance to shine in the sun, whilst getting active with the PE tasks this week. Don't forget to check the 'Netherseal Star of the Week' page to see this week's stars!
For your English work today we are going to do a Pobble- something we haven't done in a long time! Download the document below for today's picture and some prompts to help you with your writing. Why do you think I have selected this picture for today? Remember you can respond to the picture in any way you like such as a story, a poem or a song!
Well done for working so hard on your division work this week. Do you feel more confident with your multiplication and division work now?
For your Maths work today download one of the Maths Mats below. Year 1 and 2, remember to choose the right star for you! Either stick the sheet into your Maths book or copy the work out with the title: Maths Mat
Here's the last Cricket Challenge of the week. Have you enjoyed learning all the different skills for playing cricket?

I hope you've all been out and enjoying the glorious sunshine this week! I know we've been having a fantastic time in school, planning our own Olympics and Sports Day events! Don't forget to send over your pictures so we can see how you've all been keeping active and working hard!
Did you all enjoy reading about different sports and how they have changed? Don't worry if you didn't get chance to read all of the information book yesterday, you can always finish it off today if you wish! What's your favourite sport activity? Was it in the book? Today, I would like you to draw a picture and write about your favourite sporting activity.
Year 1&2- Can you find out how your sport has changed? What was it like in the past? Turn your English book (or paper if you prefer) landscape and then split it in half. On one side, draw a picture of your favourite sport today and write some sentences about it. On the other side, draw a picture and write some sentences to show what your sport was like in the past. You may need to do a little research to find out how it has changed.
Reception- Your Maths work today is a little different. You have a story to watch and then some Maths work to carry out using your super understanding of sharing. Watch the story called 'The Doorbell Rang' either on Youtube or The Mathematics Shed. Afterwards, you will need an adult to talk you through the questions but this can be completed practically. If you are feeling very creative you might like to make your own cookies for sharing!
For questioning ideas for parents, follow the link to NRICH: The Doorbell Rang
Year 1&2- The Maths work for you today is a little bit of a 'rounding off' activity to finish your unit on the multiplication and division focus we have had. It is an assessment task for you to use all the multiplication and division skills you have been learning about.
Today's Cricket Week activity is called 'Top of Off' and it involves a tea bag! Download the documents below or go to Chance to Shine to find out more!
Wednesday 24th June
Today we are going to complete a reading task at Oxford Owl. Follow the link and sign in, as you have done before. You will find our book for today 'Sport Then and Now' under 'ebooks' and 'age 6-7'.
Why do you think I have chosen for us to look at this book today? Do you think it is going to be a story book or an information book? How do you know? Remember to look for clues on the front cover and the title often gives us a good idea too!
Share the book with an adult or read though it independently. We will be looking at this book tomorrow so don't worry if you don't get a chance to read it all today. Talk about what you have read with an adult. Have you learnt anything new about sport?
For today's Maths, I would like you to complete some problem solving tasks based on your understanding of division and sharing. Remember when we are problem solving, you can use objects to help you complete the calculation, or as you feel more confident you may want to draw out the problem instead.
Reception- Choose as many of the problems to complete as you like. Make sure you use objects to help you and record this in your Maths book, with the title: Sharing Problems.
Year 1- Your problem solving questions are split into stars, so remember to find the right level for you. There are 8 problems for each star. Complete this work in your Maths book, with the title: Division Problems. Remember to show your working out for each question rather than just writing the answer. To do this you could complete each question practically and then draw out your sharing or grouping. For example, the first question asks you to share bread rolls between two groups. You could draw the bread rolls as circles and then make them into two groups by drawing rings around them, like you did for your grouping work last week. Don't worry about your drawings being accurate, circles to represent the objects will do- this is a Maths lesson, not art! :) However, if you feel more comfortable drawing the object then that's ok, but don't worry about making them look too much like the real thing.
Year 2- Your work is slightly different from Reception and Year 1 for today and is more skills based rather than applying your knowledge to solve problems. Using a number line is another way we can complete division calculations. It is just the opposite to repeated addition for multiplication. Watch the video at BBC Bitesize and then download the two documents from the list below. The image explains division, showing you the different methods you can use and where division on a number line fits in. The PDF is you task for today. You can either complete this on the sheet or draw the number lines into your Maths book, with the title: Number Line Division
I hope you are all enjoying the daily activities from Cricket Week and have had plenty of opportunities to get outside in the sunshine!
Below is your link to watch England's Ashes, World Cup and T20 winning captain, Charlotte Edwards, take you through the Cricket-Fit Session for today after 9am.
Wednesday 24th June- Cricket-Fit
Tuesday 23rd June
This week for our English work, we will be recapping our skills for reading and writing.
Reception- Download the phonics pack below all about the 'er' sound. This is usually found at the end of words, such as ladder, mixer, jumper. The action for this sound is rolling your hands over each other like a mixer, saying er-er-er. There is a picture in the file pack to show you the action.
Take a look at the activities and choose which task you would like to complete today.
Year 1&2- Download and complete the spag mat for your year group; remember to choose the right star for you.
You all worked so hard on your division work last week- well done! Can you remember what division means? What are the two ways we can complete a division calculation? We can 'group' and we can 'share'. What is different in the approach to these? Today we are going continue with our understanding of division and then later on in the week we will complete some problem solving tasks that link multiplication and division.
Year 1& 2- For today, I would like you to download and complete both tasks either on the sheet or into your Maths book. Start with the true or false question as a quick warm up. This activity could be completed practically and then you could copy your working out into your book if you wish. For the next task, try to complete the first page of questions and if you are hungry for more you can have a go at the second set of questions!
Did you enjoy your PE activities yesterday? Here are your cricket challenges for today...
To see England's Michael Vaughan show you how to take on this challenge, follow the link to watch the video after 9am: Last Batter Stands
And if you can't quite get enough of playing outdoors, here are some more activities to keep you going!
Monday 22nd June
Following on from writing and illustrating your story last week, today you need to finish off your book by creating a front cover. Have a look at other story books you may have at home. What makes a good front cover?
Year 1&2- As well as making a front cover for your story, I would like you to write a blurb. What is a blurb? Look at the back of other story books you may have at home, do they have a blurb? What does it say?
A blurb gives a little bit of information about the story to help the reader decide if they would like to read it. Sometimes a blurb may also contain a rhetorical question. Can you remember what they are from when we talked about them in school?
If you have written your story in your English book, you can still design your front cover and write your blurb; just complete it under your story or on the next page.
As a little break from division, your activity today is to choose one of the Maths Challenges from the document below. They start at Challenge 1, being the easiest, and go all the way up to Challenge 10. It is up to you which challenge you choose, however check out the guide at the bottom of the document to help you select which one you might like to complete.
This work is to be completed in your Maths book with the title: Maths Challenge. Remember to show your working out, rather than just writing the answer. You may also like to copy the question or print it out and stick it in your book, so you can use it to help you.
Whole School Topic
Your Topic work this week is going to be slightly different to our work from last week and is a whole school learning project. As it is 'National Schools Sports Week' and 'Olympic Day' on Tuesday, all teachers have uploaded PE ideas, such as the ones below, for you to choose your activities from each day! Hopefully the rain will disappear and the sun will shine so you can get outside and get active!
It's up to you to take a look at the different activities each day and choose which one you like the look of. Don't worry, you're not expected to complete them all in one day or even by the end of the week, but you could have a go at getting lots of your family involved for even more fun! As we go through the week, I may add a couple more things on for you to choose from, but these are only suggestions and you can carry on with the ones you have already chosen to do if you wish!
The main thing is to get active and have fun!
It is also National Cricket Week too!! Chance to Shine has created daily session plans for a brilliant cricket-filled week!
So each day I will add that day's cricket challenge. Here's the first one...
Monday 22nd June- Strictly Come Catching
