Year 3

Do you enjoy delicious cake, fresh fruit or tantalising treats?

Our new topic is just up your street.

 

SCRUMDIDDLYUMPTIOUS!

‘Can homemade food really be better than store bought food?’

Throughout the Summer term our project will be based on food, glorious food. Where it comes from, its nutritional value and looking at whether fresh ingredients make a difference to the taste. Do our senses impact on the food we eat? Hopefully you will have the opportunity to do some baking following a recipe. You will be designing your own packaging and advertising for a special treat of your creation.

 

We hope you all have a wonderful summer holiday. Be sure to have lots of fun in the sun, remember to keep safe and we can't wait to see you return in September as a Year 4! 

 

Week 13

Monday 20th July to Tuesday 21st July

Over the holidays, don’t forget to log in and play against your class friends (and me!) on TTRS. You will find a few challenges below which use a range of skills that you have learnt over your time in Year 3. All I ask is that you try your best and persevere.

Writing

Activity 1: This week, I would like you to share your favourite memories from Year 3 and complete an All About Me which you could share with your new teacher, Miss Oliver, to help her get to know you a little bit better. There are examples below which you can print off and complete but why not show Miss Oliver how creative you are and what a brilliant writer you are by writing your own. Use these as an example to give you an idea about what to include and make sure it is showing off your skills as a Year 3 writer.

Activity 2: Over the summer holidays, it would be brilliant if you could keep a diary which you could bring in to school or upload on to our Twitter page sharing all of your adventures. You may like to share about a messy adventure or maybe a trip to visit family or to the beach. Remember to use everything that we have learnt this year to make your writing Year 3 quality!

Spelling and Grammar

There are lots of games on Bug Club to play on to revise the Year 3 spelling rules and grammar features.

You will find all the words from the Year 2 and Year 3/4 word list below – keep practising these common exception words as they can be easy to forget. Take a look and practise the spelling of any that you are not confident with ready to impress your new teacher next term!

For grammar, I would like you to have a go at one or more of these grammar mats using all of your grammar learning from this year. I have included a few more in case you would like to have a challenge over the holidays. 

Reading

Continue with Bug Club and enjoy reading more books on there - completing the tasks as you go. Remember that you can access Bug Club from almost any device with an internet connection - but you do need your login information. If you run out of books or find the ones on there too easy, send a tweet to our class Twitter page and I'll change them for you when I can. 

 

Keeping your reading going is one of the most crucial things that you can do so, if you've not pushed yourself with your reading much so far, now is the perfect time to do it!

Science

You have learnt so much about sound this term – well done! Now, why not have a go at trying some of these working scientifically activities from STEM.

Project

Chef! Over the past 13 weeks you have baked some marvellous cakes and what better way to finish off our project, Scrumdiddliumptious, and the end of term then by baking a vibrant rainbow cake! I have put a BBC Good Food recipe below or you may like to find your own. It would be brilliant to share your photos on Twitter or email them to me at enquiries@grimoldby.lincs.sch.uk

Author! Now that you’re all skilled bakers, why not start writing your own recipe book. Write your favourite recipes using your neatest handwriting, or even create your own. You can add to your recipe book throughout the entire summer, and even as adults!

 

Exhibition! You have created so many wonderful things over this half term that they deserve to be displayed and observed. So, this is your chance to turn your kitchen, lounge or garden (if the sun is shining) in to your own exhibition! Create a name for your exhibition and think about how you are going to present your work. Is there going to be a specific order to your work? Are you going to write any labels or captions to explain each piece of work or are you going to say a speech to your family? It would be great to see your exhibition displaying all of your wonderful work so please tweet or email enquiries@grimoldby.lincs.sch.uk.

PE

Over the summer, try to enjoy as much fresh air as possible. Go on bike rides, run around the garden and take lots of wonderful walks. On those not so sunny days, you can always keep active by following a Joe Wick’s Youtube workout or one of these activities below.

Writing

Can homemade food really be better than store bought food?

You have done so much research about food over the past 12 weeks! Now, I would like you to decide whether homemade food really is better than the food you buy from a store. Follow these steps to success below to write a persuasive speech informing me of your thoughts to the question.

 

  1. Write a list of the pros and cons of homemade food. Then, do the same for store bought food.
  2. Decide, which you prefer – homemade or store bought. Highlight or underline the 3 main reasons from your list in activity 1.
  3. Make a plan

          I– State your preference

          P- Place your 3 main points in to a clear order and plan how you are going to expand on these 3 main   

          points.

          E- Restate your preference and think about a final sentence that you want your audience to remember.

          L- What links and language features are you going to use?

  4. Using the persuasive features we have learnt this year, begin to draft your persuasive speech.

  5. Proof read your speech looking for any silly mistakes.

  6. Read your speech out to your family or friends. It would be great to record your speech to share with me on Twitter J

Spelling and Grammar

Impress your new teacher with how brilliant your spelling is! Have a look at this spelling list, any words which you aren’t quite sure how to spell, practise! You may want to test yourself by practising all of them…

For grammar this week, I would like you to have a go at this grammar mat using all of your grammar learning from this year.

Project

Eatwell Pizza! Follow this quick and easy recipe by Let’s Get Cooking to make a healthy flatbread pizza. It uses natural yoghurt and is cooked using a frying pan in only a few minutes! Choose your toppings wisely to match with the Eatwell Guide. You could be adventurous and try something new such as a seafood pizza using tuna and / or prawns or a Greek theme using goats cheese and olives…

Astronaut Dinner! Did Tim Peake still eat whilst he was at the International Space Station? Of course he did! But what were his meals like? Did he have Porridge with blueberries and strawberries for breakfast with a delicious cold glass of freshly squeezed orange juice? Your challenge is to design and make a main meal that can be launched into space and eaten members of the crew on the ISS. The meal must be in line with the eatwell plate, be suitable for the constraints of space, e.g. easy to serve, no crumbs, be attractive and tasty. The meal can include multiple courses and a drink.

 

PE

Did you complete our sports day events? Although it is now too late to send in your entries, you can still continue practising and trying to beat your best scores from last week. Look at Week 6 for Mr Hopper’s videos.

Whilst the sun is shining, get yourselves out and about for a wonderful daily walk, jog or bike ride.
