Welcome to Class 7 and 8

We wanted to welcome the children from both Class 7 and Class 8 to our shared year 3 page. We will be sharing resources, websites and fun project ideas, which your children can have a go at.

 

We were all so sad that the term came to such an abrupt end last week. We are all missing each and every one of the children and we are hoping that you are all ok.

 

We are only an email away and we really would be delighted to hear from you - whether it's for help and advice with an activity you are doing at home or just to say hello! Please find our email addresses below.

cd'souza@thewilmslowacademy.co.uk

 lgittins@thewilmslowacademy.co.uk

 skralj@thewilmslowacademy.co.uk

 

Please keep safe inside your houses and give your families lots of hugs! We know your children will be feeling very anxious at the moment with all the uncertainty. 

Please do as much or as little as you feel capable of with your child. The most important thing is that all the children get to spend plenty of quality time with their family. You could try baking together, planting seeds and gardening etc. We'd love to see your pictures on Twitter.

If they can keep their minds active and stay fit and healthy then that is a bonus. 

 

Please find below a timetable for Year 3's Home Learning.

We appreciate that you will have all developed your own working routines with your children which we are more than happy for you to continue using however we have put together an optional, more comprehensive timetable for anyone who is looking for more structured learning.

After feedback from parents we have now decided to leave the work from last week on the website for one more week.

 

The Summer Reading Challenge launches on Friday 5th June. This year it is all online.

Please click on the link to get started https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/

Worksheet 3

Spelling

This week we are looking at creating adverbs using the suffix -ly. when the root word ends in 'le'

 

This week's spellings

gently

simply

humbly

nobly

horribly

terribly

possibly

probably

incredibly

comfortably

 

As we have done previously. Consider the root word for each of these spellings.

Write it down in a list. What do you notice about the ending of the word? What is the same for each word? If we want to create an adverb - a word to describe a verb - what do we need to do?  Does adding the suffix -ly change the meaning and the use of the word?

 

Maybe you could make a poster explaining the rule for this spelling group?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z8mxrwx/articles/zqghtyc

 

Now can you complete the quiz about adverbs?
