Guided Reading

Each week, we will set the Guided Reading tasks on TEAMS and would really like you to send your responses to it in this way.  However, if you struggle to access the resources we will insert them into the webpage each day too.  Even if you access the materials here, where possible, please submit your answers via TEAMs. If all else fails email your work to:

year 3@abbeyroadprimary.co.uk

Today we want you to simply read and enjoy Chapter 9 of ‘Dinosaur Trouble’.  Click on the link below.

Today we continue to look at pictograms and answer questions about the information contained within them.  Watch the video then complete the sheets in the link below!   There are 2 sets of sheets to complete – go on challenge yourself! Again, please do not print them out, look at them on screen and write your answers on paper at home.  Mark your own work afterwards using the link to the answers!


In today’s lesson, we look at the success criteria for persuasive letter writing and then your task is to plan your letter to Mr Johnson persuading him to take some steps to protect the environment just like our main character in the Tin Forest did.

Worksheet (if you wish to print)- Persuasive letter template

In the lesson, you will be asked to watch this clip to learn more about persuasive language-



As last week, here is your weekly spellings and spelling task.  You can either print these sheets out and record your practice attempts in the boxes or write the spelling words out a few times/put them into sentences on some paper from home.

These are from EdShed so you can log in using the details found at the back of your diary and play the interactive spelling games to help you practice if you think this might help.  We won’t be setting a formal time to test your spellings but if you would like to please feel free to organise a time to test yourselves and let us know your scores.


Forest School 

This week our Forest School session is linked to our learning in English.  The man who lives in the Tin Forest lives opposite a dump.  Today, we would like you to think about litter in the local area and maybe start to make a small difference to our school, local area and communities! Copy and paste the link below and watch the video below to find out the task we have set you this week.  If you are not able to go on a litter pick try designing a poster to remind people to put their litter in the bin and recycle more!  PLEASE REMEMBER TO GO LITTER PICKING WITH AN ADULT, WEAR GLOVES, AND NEVER TOUCH ANYTHING DANGEROUS / YOU UNSURE OF!
We would love to see pictures of you litter picking so that we can share our successes on the website.  Photographs of your posters are equally welcome!

As ever, we are here to help, no matter how small the query!

Take care

Year 3 Team!
