We are missing you in Class 3 and we look forward to seeing you when you can return to school. In the meantime, we'd hate for you to miss out. Below we have attached some of the lesson resources we'll be using in school over the week that you can hopefully draw from these as you continue your learning at home.
We have added a timetable below to suggest ways you could structure your days and should mean that you can work through the kind of activities you would have been doing with us in class. Lots of these contain links to video lessons or PPT activities you can follow. Any worksheets can be printed off from here or simply viewed onscreen. If anyone has any problems please let do let us know and we will try to solve them!
As the week goes on, we will aim to add other activities so keep checking back. Most importantly, keep looking after yourselves, get lots of fresh air and do the activities that feel manageable.
Any work you do, please take a photo and email us. We would love to see it and will reply to you.
Take care all of you,
Mrs Hill and Mrs Maxwell

Multiplication and Division
This week we are continuing our focus on multiplication and division, looking again at division in a sharing context, the 4 times table facts and the 8 times table facts. Please follow the links below for video lessons. Worksheet activities accompanying each lesson can also be found below (please note that these are not the white rose maths worksheets referenced in the video - alternatives have been chosen for their focus on problem solving skills as will be covered in class.)
- electrical conductors and insulators. This will be a practical session and unfortunately not very easy to replicate at home! Click here
for a video lesson covering the same objectives as we will be in covering class.
PE - In class we've been learning handball. Explain the rules you remember to someone at home and practise your two handed and one handed throwing and catching. This could be with a family member or against a wall. Chalk a simple target on the wall or floor (ask first) and practise your one handed shooting. You could even set up a small game of handball using a box or cone as a goal and some willing family members! Don't forget to use positioning and passing to help you move the ball around the court.
- Exploring ideas about Christians belief in God. Click Here

Week Beginning 16th November 2020
Maths: Multiplication and Division
In school this week children are recapping division and revisiting this concept through the 2, 5 and 10 times table. This is because these facts should be known facts and therefore your child should be able to focus on using their times table facts or ‘skip counting’ (2, 4, 6, 8 etc…) to answer them, not using objects to calculate. It might be useful for them to have objects to physically divide as the children will have in class in order to have a really secure understanding of division as grouping process and as a sharing process.
This week, lessons covering the types of objectives we will be covering in class can be found by following this link.
This learning is suitable for both year 3 and 4 and corresponding activities and worksheets can be found below
These will be done as alternative activities in class on Tuesday and Friday and are great if you are able to guide your child through the challenges. They both focus on using diagrams and objects to ‘see’ the problem. You might find the teaching notes section useful to read first if you plan to do this, and the extension ideas are brilliant for stretching their brains!
English: Setting Description
This week, take a look at Lesson 7 on www.code.org. You will need the Sign In access code of WTZRKQ to get logged in to access the lesson materials.
Good luck with your coding!
Geography - Land Use in Sheffield
In class we are learning about batteries and how they power an electrical circuit. We are also learning about the different components of an electrical circuit. Watch this video to show how we will be making an lemon battery in class. Can you explain how it works? Alternatively you might like to look at this science lesson from Oak National Academy on components of an electrical circuit.

In class we are using this time to connect with one another and celebrate the birthdays of those classmates who have been unable to have a party this year due to lockdown. Take some time to think about how you like to connect with others in trickier times and use your imagination to plan a virtual celebration you could have with friends or family. What games or activities work well online?
