Remote Learning W/C 8th February

Hi Chestnut Class!
 
Welcome to week six of remote learning.
 
Find below your work for this week.
 
Don't forget - Tuesdays are different in school so make sure you look at the heading 'Tuesday' :) 
 
Check for Friday's afternoon work too... it's golden time! :) Hopefully Friday afternoons will be a time where we can all have a bit of fun. Lots of opportunities for great photographs to show your friends.
 
In addition to the maths, English and afternoon session, please keep practising your times tables.
 
Practise your times tables daily (Choose your times table sheet from the main remote learning page) Try to give yourself a 5 minutes time cap like we have in class to see how many you can do. Afterwards, get an adult to mark it for you OR use a calculator. Once you have got all of them correct 3 times you are ready to move onto the next challenge. Please email me if you cannot remember which sheet you need or if you are ready to move on.
 
It would be good to do this on paper 3 times a week. The other two days, you could use a computer or tablet to practise your times tables using the games below.
 
 
 
If you would like to send in any work you have done or pictures of you doing some of the activities, please do! It would be lovely for everyone to see what we are all up to.
As we come to the end of this terms value of truthfulness let's reflect on the impact our songs and stories have had on us.
 
To conclude, complete the journal below and send it into us.
 
 
I have also been reflecting a lot - in school we have looked at some worship videos created by iSingPop (hopefully some of you will remember when we performed these songs in the church many years ago). Below is a worship video that is centred around hope. I feel like this is really important at the moment as i really hope to see you all soon!

Maths
 
This week we will continue with multiplying.
 
There are live lessons for each year group this week - it is important that you attend so you can complete the work that is set :)
Year 3 - Lesson One
 
To get you started this week, I would like you to think about your ten times table.
 
Task One - Write out your ten times table.
 
What do you notice about each answer?
You should notice that all of the answers end in ZERO. Ten has ONE zero therefore, we add ONE zero to the answer.
 
You can apply this to numbers that are much bigger than 10.
 
Eg. 63 x 10 = Write 63, add zero = 630
19 x 10 = 190
45 x 10 = 450
98 x 10 = 980
 
You could even complete something like 462 x 10 =  4620
 
This is a start ready for tomorrow - you will need to be really happy with this concept.
 
Complete your first worksheet :) 
 
 
Year 3 - Lesson Three
 
Today's lesson is LIVE.
 
You will be in small groups and a link is sent to your parents. Each session will be 35 minutes.
 
Please be prepared with a whiteboard and pen OR a pen and felt tip - it needs to be dark so your answers show up on the screen.
 
IF YOU MISS THE LIVE LESSON PLEASE SEE THE VIDEO BELOW.
 
You may also need a times table square to help you.

English
 
This week, we will finish our English unit on the BFG.
 
Find below a planning sheet that will see you through lessons 1 and 2 - you may want to make notes from the videos relating to lessons 3 and 4 too.
 
Other than that, this week is about writing the rest of the what we have seen in the video clip.
 
Please use the success criteria given in the video and think about what you already know:
 
  • Short snappy sentence
  • Show don't tell
  • Similes
  • Fronted adverbials for time
  • Ellipsis (...)
  • Different words for moving quickly (as fast as flash, ran, sprinted, bolted)
Grammar
 
Instead of grammar this week, we are going to work on reading comprehension.
Monday and Wednesday
 
There are two reading comprehension activities to do today - they are called 60 second reads. This is to prepare for a longer reading exercise later in the week.
 
Remember that it is really important to look for the information in the texts. 
 
Sometimes it is useful to highlight information in the question e.g. are you looking for a number? are you looking for a name?
Thursday and Friday
 
These activities require you to be able to read a longer piece of information - remember, don't be put off by the amount of words on the page. It is likely that you don't need to read every single one to find the answer.
 
In each pack there are up to three tasks - they are the same text but the first one is easier and the last one is the more tricky one in terms of word reading and question type. You can choose which one you do.
 
1. Read the question first
2. Search for the answer
 
The answer to question 1 is likely to be found at the top of the page, question two - shortly after that, then question 3 etc.
 
If you can't complete a question - move on.
Coding 
 
We are linking computing and art together this week. We are going to use blocks of code to create shapes and patterns.
 
It takes a little getting used to and some perseverance.
 
You do not need to complete the whole programme - see how far you get in 40 minutes.
 
Perhaps you could take some photographs of what you have created and send them in,
Tuesday
 
Below are tasks for the following sessions:
 
R.E
 
PSHE
 
French 
 
Music
 
P.E
R.E. - Hindu Worship
 
Today, you are required to use the information pack sent to you to either create a PowerPoint presentation, leaflet or poster to describe what worship is like.

PSHE - It has been a difficult 6 weeks for everybody but there are always positives to take away from these challenging times.
 
For today, I want you to think back and reflect over this term's lockdown experience.
 
It would be nice to see what sort of things you have enjoyed, particularly in relation to your learning so we can  try to form activities matched to what you enjoy next term.

Golden Time
 
We have decided we'd quite like some fresh air and time away from the classroom (weather permitting).
 
We are going to go on a scavenger hunt around the village - below is the list should you wish to join us (virtually, of course).
 
We are then going to warm up with a hot chocolate when we get back.
 
Well done for your continued hard work this term. 
Enjoy your week off :)
