Nottingham Trent Peregrine Falcons webcam

 

If you would like to see some real life predators enjoying this lockdown, you can see a pair of peregrine falcons nesting on top of the Nottingham Trent University building opposite the Cornerhouse (where the cinema is). They are waiting for their 3 eggs to hatch any day now! 

New Reading Books ...

Oxford Reading Owl has some e books that you can access for your children to read new material at their current reading level.  This will be particularly useful for your child if they were reading Book Banded books (eg orange, turquoise, purple) from school.

You do have to sign up but is free and you will be able to access new e books.  Of course this is not the same as holding a real book but it is another way to engage your child in reading.    We hope this link is of use to you.  Remember you are looking for "ebooks."

 

 

For Phonics games and activities (reading and spelling), Phonics Play is a brilliant website that has decided to waive their subscription for a month (as of 19th March 2020).

New resources - Uploaded Wednesday 25th

 

Please find below a list of websites/apps that we would like to recommend.

 

Doorway online - Touch typing

This is a great skill to learn and the activities here are all free. The activities take around 5 minutes each and will benefit everybody. Touch typing is a big help to those with dyslexia as well as making the process of typing quicker and more accurate.  It will not work on a touch screen, it has to be done on a conventional keyboard.

 

 

Google Sketchup

This is a free 3D modelling program that can produce stunning results, given time and patience.  It is an online application and can be found here.  There are tutorials and of course hundreds of videos on YouTube.

Using sketchup, try to draw objects from around the house/garden first.  Once mastered, try more difficult things like a house or other type of building (items with lines at angles are difficult, as are curves).

 

 

Audible

Good news - audible is making hundreds of titles available for free during the school closures. This service will remain free for as long as schools are shut - this means books are available to stream at no cost at all.  Simply visit stories.audible.com from any browser to get started.  No logins, credit card or passwords needed!

 

I hope this helps,

Tribal Tales of Prehistoric Britain

  • We know about prehistoric life from artefacts discovered by archaeologists such as food, coins, tools and jewellery.  Make a time capsule about your life now for archaeologists to find in 1000 years.  What clues would leave? What would it show about life today?
  • Make a photo montage of prehistoric monuments.  You can search for the best images online and download them to a Powerpoint or Word document.  You could even visit one!
  • Iron Age people were the first humans ever to grow crops such as spelt wheat, barley, rye and oats.  Can you find these foods in your local supermarket.  Make a table including what they are used in, prices and weights of packets. Can you find out where they are grown as well?
  • Draw your own pet or local animal in the style of a prehistoric cave painting.
  • Build your own prehistoric monument. It could be small or taller than you in the garden (take a photo!). What materials will you use and how will you build it?
  • Create your own Celtic costume.  Tartan pyjama bottoms and blankets may come in handy! You could borrow a brooch to secure your cloak or some Celt-inspired jewellery.  Hair gel and blue face paint are essential if you are going into battle! Finally, strike a pose and take a photo!!

Year 3 Optional Homework - Spring

Scrumdiddlyumptious

  • Keep a food diary to record the different types of food you eat over the weekend.  Report back, in your opinion, whether or not your family has a balanced diet!
  • Make a dish from a recipe book and take photographs to share back at school.  Pay particular attention to weighing and measuring as well as temperatures and timings.  Remember to wash your hands before you get going!
  • Make a fabric dye from a strongly coloured fruit or vegetable.  Try beetroot, carrots, tea, spinach or strawberries.  Try dip-dying an old white T-shirt or handkerchief into your coloured dye... What happens?

 

Heroes and Villains

  • Create a fact file about a real-life hero (past or present) that you find interesting. Martin Luther King, Boudicca, Rosa Parks, Amy Johnson, Neil Armstrong, Helen Keller? Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Usain Bolt, Richard Whitehead, Rebecca Adlington, Roald Dahl or someone else altogether? Who will you choose?
  • Collect stories from newspapers and magazines about everyday heroes and make a clippings board.  Heroic acts might include saving people or animals from danger, fighting fires or donating organs to help another person.
  • Make Top Trumps cards for villains and heroes in children's stories and fairy tales.  Include the name, picture, and a short description of the character on each card. Don't forget to include information on the characters' strengths, weaknesses, intelligence, fitness, and any other traits you think are appropriate and fun!

 

Year 3 Optional Homework - Summer

Predators

If you could be a predator for the day, what kind of predator would you be, and why? Where would you live? What features would help you hunt, catch and kill your prey?

Devise a "What am I?" quiz about predators and try it out on friends and family.  How many questions did it take for them to get the right answer?

Write a set of instructions for how to care for your ultimate predator.Design your own imaginary predator.  You could even join parts of existing predators using cropped images from the internet.

 

Mighty Metals

Go on a magnetic treasure hunt in your house.  How many magnetic objects can you find? What materials are they made of?

Research some of the tasks carried out by robots.  What tasks do you think robots could do in the future? What jobs would you (or your parents!) like robots to do in your house?

Search the web to find artwork made using metal and make a collage or scrapbook of downloaded images.

Find out about King Midas and his golden touch.

Find out all you can about a musical instrument made from metal. It could be orchestral or something more unusual! Create a presentation with photos and sound clips of your chosen instrument.

 

Homework

Maths Homework (given on Week 2 in the diary) - This may be exercises to consolidate concepts being worked on in class; times tables practice (your child should know which times table is their target but should continue to practise the tables they have already learned) or other online activities.
