Maths
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ - a great resource if you or your child would prefer more structured maths learning.


Practise measuring weights, lengths, heights, volumes, capacities, anything! Baking/cooking together, measuring heights of people in the house… .Guessing the lengths of various things around the house and then seeing who was closest could be a fun game.


Money – any practise with working out amounts using pounds and pence. Talk about giving change.

Daily reading
Even if your children don’t read with you, get them to talk about what they’re reading. What’s happening in the plot? How do the characters feel? What might happen next?


English
Research and create an information text about plants (you can chose the specific title – How to care for plants; Parts of a plant; How plants grow; The life cycle of a plant; etc.) or about Sustainable Cities.


English with Holly – a Facebook page that does a live lesson at 11am every weekday.


Spelling
Practise some of these homophones and near-homophones:
are/our, there/their/they’re, eye/I, here/hear, see/sea, one/won, sun/son, to/too/two, be/bee, here/hear, where/were

Science
We have been learning about plants this term: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zy66fg8.

Feel free to also (or instead) work with real plants, caring for them and discussing what each part does and what the plant needs to grow.

P.E.
Joe Wicks indoor workouts – many children enjoy starting the day with these together at 9am. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ


Make a mini-circuit routine or assault course inside. You could incorporate this with maths or other subjects by having questions at each “station” too.

Computing
Rodocodo - https://www.rodocodo.com/


Touchtyping - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zf2f9j6/articles/z3c6tfr


Coding - https://lightbot.com/hour-of-code.html - great if they have finished the available rodocodo levels. Challenge them to use as few commands as possible in each level. Mr B will post some of his low scores in coming weeks, can anyone beat him?


Coding without a computer: pretend you’re a robot who can only understand the instructions forward; turn 90 degrees left/right; pick up. Set a maze for the robot to navigate and items for them to collect – can they create an algorithm/code for the robot to follow from the start of the maze to the end, collecting all the items?
