Beanfield Primary School

Week 5 - 1st February

Hello Year 3,

We hope that you enjoyed last week’s home learning – we have been so impressed by how well you are getting on!

This week in Maths you are going to be focusing on money and in Times Table Rockstars you are going to be recapping your 3x this week.

In English you will be continuing to work on your Brunel biography and look at how you can improve your sentences using adverbs and conjunctions. You will then use all of your work from last week and the beginning of this week to plan and write your final version of your biography.

Within Topic you will be exploring Isambard Kingdom Brunel further and finding out about some of his greatest designs and inventions. You will also learn about how he changed life in Great Britain during the Victorian era.

During our Science lesson you will be exploring magnetism and carrying out your own investigation into whether all metals are magnetic or not.

Throughout the week you will also have some more fun PE, Spanish and Wellbeing sessions which we hope you are enjoying every week!

A document with all the links you will need for this week's lessons is attached at the bottom of this page.

Grown-ups: Please remember if you need any further assistance with any of this week’s home learning, or if you would like to send us in photos of some great pieces of work, we now have a year 3 email address:  Please try and send us at least one email a week with pictures of your home learning so we can see the great learning you've been doing at home and so we can give your child some feedback.

Don't forget to take our quiz at the end of the week so we can see what you've learned and there is story read by Miss Garvey for you to enjoy this week.

We would also like to share that in week 6, we will be having a music day on the Wednesday. One of the activities includes making a musical instrument. The things that you will need for this are:

A paper plate


Hole punch (if possible – if not use a pen and blu tac)

Thin ribbon or string

Jingle bells – see links below

Cotton balls


Here are some examples of the jingle bells that will be needed:

They can be ordered quite cheaply from ebay. You will need no more than 10 bells.
