Year 3 2019-20
Hello Year Three
Good morning Year 3. It is another new week and we are super excited for our new theme and to see all your wonderful work. We think you will enjoy this one too. Our theme this week is SIGNIFICANT PEOPLE!
We hope you are enjoying these new themes as much as we are. We have also decided to put a school diary together ‘Making Memories in Lockdown 2020’ and this is going to have diary entries in from whoever would like to write one – staff, parents and children. We are going to hide this in school and hope that it is found in years to come – we are making history after all! Email these to me if you would like to join in.
As always, if you need us for anything, you would like to send in your lovely work or you would just like to say hello to us, then email us on this email address here and we will get back to you as soon as we can. firstname.lastname@example.org This is also the email address to send your Special Delivery task to. Don’t forget, you must send these to us by the date shown in red. We haven’t had all of them in every week so please make sure you remember to send your picture.
Keep on being wonderful, keep on smiling and keep on being YOU – FABULOUS!
Mrs Yeulett & Miss Earle xx

God, thank You for this day!
Thank You for the birds and the animals, the flowers and the trees, the lakes and the streams, and the sun that rises and sets over them each day.
Thank You for creating everything we see! Thank You for the life we live, and for making each person different.
Thank You for Jesus, who died for us so that we can go to heaven one day just for believing in Him.
What an amazing God You are!
In Jesus’ Name,

Today we want you to imagine you are famous. What are famous for? Do you earn a lot of money? Write a diary entry recounting the day’s events in role?
Think about these questions: What calculations can you create using the numbers 127, 111, 200, 28 and 65? Will you use subtraction, addition or both? Can you find the inverse to the calculations you write?
As a family, discuss famous people that may have had an impact on your lives and the choices they have made about the jobs they have chosen. Talk about who has inspired you and why. Can you create a family tree that illustrates inspirations and choices?

Look at this information all about Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. Complete the quiz and test your knowledge!
Are these number sentences true or false?
597 + 7 = 614,
804 – 70 = 744,
768 + 140 = 908,
907- 669= 238,
872- 109= 108
Work them out and give reasons.
Our weekly visit to Douglas
Goodness models Christ’s actions of love, humility, and forgiveness. It shows integrity, honesty, and compassion towards others. It is only possible through God’s power at work in our heart.
Not only can we see God’s goodness displayed through the way He loves, guides, and cares for us, but we can also see it every day in creation. Creation reflects God—His nature, character, and goodness. Creation points us to the Creator. Our God.
Goodness on the Inside Banana
Bananas, Pens or Sharpie Markers
1. Pass out a banana to each member of your family.
2. Instruct everyone to decorate the outside of their banana.
3. Once everyone is finished decorating, peel open the bananas.
4. Talk about how what we see on the outside appearance of a person doesn’t show us what is on the inside (in their heart). Only God sees our hearts & only the Holy Spirit working inside of us can create goodness in our heart.
There is a verse in the bible that speaks on this, it says
“God does not see the same way people see. People look at the outside of a person, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16 verse 7
Listen to the song below and ask God to fill our hearts with goodness.
Friday 10th July
Today we would like you to find out when the NHS began. Who was the founder? Compare the NHS then and now. How old is the NHS? You could represent this information on a timeline or in an information booklet.
Times tables – spend 20-30 minutes on Times Table Rockstars, your individual login for this is in your orange home learning pack. Play against your classmates in the ‘Arena’.
Time to Talk
What do you think will be the same when things get back to normal and what do you think will be different?
The message here is that change is not a bad thing and not something to be feared! Talk about positive lessons that you have learned from being in lockdown and give examples of things that you will change yourself.
Think about 3 things that make you laugh! What are they? Why do they make you laugh? It’s good to smile! Go to sleep with a smile on your face! Sweet dreams!
PE Tasks for this week
Don’t forget P.E. with Joe Wicks each morning at 9am, or recap some of his workouts from previous weeks, available on the link below:
Here is a link for a fun gymnastics lesson with Miss Rimmer. The card can also be found at the bottom of the page. This one looks like great fun.
Why not have a go at making some scones. These alternative healthier snacks could be enjoyed with a cold glass of milk after a long walk with your family. You will find the recipe card at the bottom of the page.
Imagine being stranded on a desert island. How would you find food and water? Have a look at the forest school card below and see if you could make a water filter. I would love to see a picture of these.
Don’t forget to do the ‘Home Challenge’, which can be found at the bottom of the page. During the time that school is closed, we are setting you a selection of random fun challenges to try and complete. Some will be easier than others and some will need you to be extra creative. When we are back at school, prizes will be awarded for any children who have managed to complete the HOME Challenge!’
