Year 3 - Summer Support

We hope that you enjoy the activities that have been planned for you. Follow the links below to access the recommended webpages and videos to help you to practise the knowledge that you have learnt this year. 

There are also any files that you may need attached to the bottom of the page.

 

Reading

Each week, continue reading your chosen books little and often. Whether it’s on the beach, relaxing in the back garden or before you go to bed. Think carefully about the questions that are on your bookmark when reading and try your best to imagine the characters, settings and action.

Have some fun with ‘Book Bingo’ below - can you compelte a line or even shout ‘Book Bingo!’ by completing the whole chart? Record the titles you read in your summer diary. You could also write a mini review if you like!

Free audiobooks can be accessed on Researchify, BBC or WBD Audiobooks 2021.  

 

Read a set of instructions for making a model, playing a game or a recipe

 

Read a non-fiction book

Read a book with more than 100 pages.

Read a chapter of your favourite book out loud to a family member (don’t forget super expression)

Read a story which makes you laugh.

Read a book by an author we’ve studied before e.g. Beatrix Potter, Roald Dahl,

Read a book which was first published over 40 years ago.

Read a poem 

Visit the library and choose a book that you’ve never read before

Read a book where the main character is an animal.

E.g. The Sheep Pig, The Hodgeheg 

Listen to an audio book – you could do this as a bedtime story.

Listen to a story read by an adult.

Writing

Each week, write a diary entry in your summer diary. This could be things you have done, things you have enjoyed or things you are looking forward to in year 4. Perhaps your special diary will become a primary source of information that historians in the the future will read to find out what life was like in the Summer of 2021! Make sure it is written in your very best joined handwriting and punctuated correctly.

 

Spelling 

Continue practising your year 3& 4 spelling rules on Year 3 & 4 Spelling Frame and Year 3 & 4 Spellzone   

As well as practising the year 3/4 spelling words (attached below) as part of your handwriting work, you may choose to watch one spelling video a week below to practise your spelling rules. Click on the links below to watch the spelling rules that you need to practise.

 

 

Handwriting

Each week, practise writing out 10 of the Year 3/4 spelling words. These can be found at the bottom of the page.. Think about how to form and whether to join each letter. Leave sensible finger spacing between each word. Use a sharp pencil

We’d like you to really focus on your letter joins and practise joining consistently. Watch the video below to remind yourself how to join your letters and which letters to join. 

 

Maths 

Improve your fluency practising your multiplication and division facts for your 3, 4 and 8 xtable on TT Rockstars. Can you beat your score? These websites may also be helpful to visit: TOPMARKS   BITESIZE  MATHS GAMES   MATHS FRAME

 

Also test yourself on the following:

  • Can you count in 50s and 100?
  • Can you count in 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s and 10?
  • How many tens in  70, 90, 100, 300, 370, 420, 500?
  • Can you practise your number complements to 100? E.g. 75 + _____ = 100, 62 + _____ = 100
