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 11 of ‘Dinosaur Trouble’.  Click on the link below.

Today we continue to work on measurement.    Today we look at how 100cm is the same as 1m. (cm = centimetres and m = metres) If you don’t have ruler or metre stick  / measuring tape with these divisions on don’t worry you can print these links here and create your own.

Watch the video then complete the sheets in the link below!   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!


Today we are recapping commas in a list and subordinating conjunctions. We are then asking you to show off what you have learnt and write a paragraph about the final scene from ‘The Delivery’ using both commas in a list and subordinating conjunctions. Please don’t worry though, more will become clear and examples are shown in the recorded lesson below.
As tomorrow is World Book Day we are asking that you please submit your work today for feedback. We are really looking forward to see how you are getting on.
The Delivery clip –


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 

We were so impressed with how passionate you all were about the environment in your persuasive letters last week.  It was also great to see so many of you taking care of wildlife and nature in your local community when you went litter picking  – thank you!
Today we want to encourage more wildlife into our gardens as well as our new improved Forest School area!  Take a look at the video (Copy and paste the youtube link below into your browser) for some ideas and send us pictures of what you make – we would love to share your pictures on the website!
Below are a few pictures of our re-vamped Forest School area.  We have added bark chippings to the floor to make it less muddy and slippery in rain.  We have log seats for everyone (courtesy of Daisy’s Dad -thank you!).  We also have a frame for a shelter that we can add a tarpaulin to in the event of heavy rain. This will provide shelter and help us to keep the fire alight in order to cook those well-deserved campfire snacks!

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

Take care

Year 3 Team!
