Welcome to the Year 3 Remote Learning page!

Please support your child’s learning at home by completing the following activities throughout the week.



Activity 1:

During the week, your child will need log on to Purple Mash using the link below. You can find your child’s username and password in the back of their Homework Book.

Once your child has logged in, they will need to go to their ‘To Do’ list and open the ‘Alien Time’ activity. This task is focused on expressing time, place and cause using conjunctions. This lesson follows on from last week’s learning about coordinating and subordinating conjunctions. For the activity, your child will need to complete each sentence with the correct conjunction.

Activity 2:

Your child will need to write a book review about the Iron Man by Ted Hughes. Your child will need to write a paragraph for each of the four sections:

Paragraph 1 – Introduce who the author is and include any other books that he/she has written.

Paragraph 2 – Introduce the main characters and include any other characters who are important in the book. Introduce something that happens in the first half of the book. Introduce something that happens in the final part of the book.

Paragraph 3 – You will need to explain which parts of the book that you liked and which parts of the book you didn’t like. Make sure you explain why!

Paragraph 4 – Conclude the book review by explaining who you would recommend the book too and why.
