Hi Year 3! Welcome to our first blog post!
Please remember this blog is here for extra ideas of activities for you to carry on your learning and to keep you from getting bored. You don’t have to do all the activities on here. In fact you don’t have to do any of them if you don’t want to. They are just fun ideas for you and your grown-ups with lots of things you can have a go at independently without your grown-up’s support.
Check our previous blog post if your grown up would like an idea for a home schooling timetable. Some grown-ups asked us for this. But again, remember do what feels right for you and your family. As with the activities, we have only shared this in case it is helpful. Do not feel you have to do everything in the timetable. Do as much or as little as feels right for your family to feel safe and relaxed at home.
Writing prompt of the day:
Write some sentences or a paragraph describing a dragon. It can be a dragon you invented or any dragon you like.
Things to remember:
-Describe what it looks like (Its eyes, its body, its claws, its tail)
-Describe its personality (is it grumpy or friendly?)
-Try to include some conjunctions like: and, but, so, because, when, if, before, after
-Try to include some adjectives (describing words) like: safe, comfortable, caring, soft, clean, kind, huge, beautiful
Challenge: Can you include some adverbs (like quickly, carefully, quietly)to describe how it moves?
PE activity of the day:
Why not try some yoga for kids? They have lots of themes including Star Wars, Pokemon, Trolls, and Frozen.
Drawing challenge of the day:
Have a go at drawing… a flower
You can draw from your imagination, look up pictures to help you or draw from real life if you have one in your home 🙂
Idea for a Geography activity:
Draw a map of the UK and label all the countries. Have a go at labeling the capital cities for each country and see if you can learn them off by heart. Or just see if you can learn all of the countries and capital cities off by heart.
Idea for an Drama activity:
Act out a scene from your favourite, book, film or TV show.
It was so strange for us being at school yesterday without you there. We missed you lots. We hope you have a good day and we’re looking forward to seeing you all when school is back on. Feel free to comment on the blog or to emailus with some of the things you have been doing at home.
