A big hello from Mrs Paterson!
Y3 FP work from home
On this page you'll be able to find a selection of work to complete each week. Please try to find some time each day to do a little bit. It may seem like there is lots of work here, but please feel free to pick and choose from the selection below. It is not expected that you complete all activities, but please try and have a go at something from every subject. It may help if you design a timetable for yourself to help break the day up into smaller chunks.
Remember, I am only a keyboard away!
Update: 5th April
Happy Easter Everyone!
I hope you are all well. Thank you again to those of you who have sent me some of your work via Showbie. It's been lovely to see how hard you are working at home. Reading your work has really made me smile!
The next two weeks should have been the Easter half term holidays. Because of this, we will not be adding any new work onto this page over the next two weeks. Please take this time to rest and have fun at home! Remember to keep reading your books... try to read at least six times over the next two weeks like you would have done if this was a normal holiday.
I will leave all of the work that I have set over the past week lower down this page in case there is anything you would like to finish off over the next two weeks. I will replace the work with new activities on Sunday the 19th of April ready for the first week of term.
If you'd like some activities to do over the Easter break, or if the school routine is helping you to break up the week, I have added some fun things to try over the Easter break below. You don't have to do these, but they are there to try if you would like something different to do. The white rose maths website will continue to be updated over the Easter holidays too with new activities for you to try if you want something new to do.
Enjoy the Easter break! Have fun! And remember, you can still contact me via Showbie or email if you need anything.
Easter Home Activity Booklet - This is a great booklet with lots of ideas for you to try. If you haven't got access to a printer, a lot of these activities can either be done by looking at the booklet on your computer, or drawing the activity out on a piece of plain paper.

Can you have a go at some of these writing ideas? Can you try to include our writing targets from this year?
1. Punctuating all of your sentences with full stops, capital letters, exclamation marks and question marks as appropriate.
2. Expanded noun phrases (adjective comma adjective noun)
3. Compound and complex sentences
(Remember compound sentences use coordinating conjunctions- For And Nor But Or Yet So. Complex sentences use subordinating conjunctions- If Since As While Although When After Before Until Because).
(Words that describe how or when something is being done. They describe verbs.)
5. An adverb to start a sentence, followed by a comma.

Can you write your own short story about a chariot race? Can you remember to include all of our writing targets? Remember to include an opening, a build-up, a problem, a resolution and an ending!
