There are videos of teachers delivering the lessons. You may also want to have a look at the BBC Bitesize content for Year 3 here too or even on the red button on your TV.
Please note...our free access to Emile came to an end at the end of June so children's accounts will now be closed.

Margaret Godfrey enjoys using a wide variety of subject matter for her artistic interpretation. Her pictures incorporate both representational and abstract styles and often include both. Living in the beautiful McKenzie Valley in Oregon and traveling throughout the U.S and abroad, she finds an abundance of inspiration for creating art. Margaret shares her enthusiasm for watercolor through teaching and active membership in watercolor associations.
Here are some examples of her work, focussing on volcanoes. Today, create your own piece of volcano art in the style of Margaret Godfrey

Have a go at today’s Daily 10.
Read Caliban’s ode to The Island, when you read it try to read it out loud and add some drama to it. Imagine how Caliban was feeling when he was expressing his love for the Island! Using the structure of an Ode and the key phrases provided have a go at writing your own ode.
You could choose to write it as a character from the Tempest to another character, for example from Ferdiand to Miranda. Or, you might decide to write it from yourself to something you really love. If I were going to do this I might write an ode to chocolate…
Oh delicious chocolate
You are a beauty to behold
With your smooth, creamy texture and delicious flavours
I love the way you fill my mouth with flavour
And create a warm glow in my tummy like a hot summer’s evening (I bet you can guess which teacher started writing this!)
Have a go at practicing your spellings with this word search.

Design a colourful pizza for a vegetarian. Make sure you think carefully about what kind of foods a vegetarian can eat. Once you have designed your pizza have a go at making it (you could buy a ready made pizza base, or use this recipe to make it from scratch). Next, eat your creation! Finally, you will need to evaluate the finished product- this means thinking about what went well and what you might change if you were going to make the pizza again.
Read the news article about ‘Snot’ Palaces and then have a go at making your own slime!

Go through the PPT to see the spellings for this week. Then write them down.

How has your week been? It can be easy to dwell on the parts of our week that haven’t gone our way. This has been especially true during the recent months, there is a very long list of things we haven’t been able to do! Today, I would like you to spend some time thinking about how you have felt (and it’s ok if this hasn’t been positive all the time!), then think about some things you have done to be helpful and kind to others and what you have learnt. Record your thoughts on this sheet. I’d love to see some of them.
Friday night is movie night in my house and this idea was suggested by one of the children in my class so it works nicely.
Watch your favourite film. After, you could write a review of the movie or maybe create a poster to advertise the film in the cinema.
Thursday 9th July 2020
Today's lesson is going to be looking at horizontal and vertical lines.

1. read the text out loud and see how many words you can get up to in 60 seconds. Take a break, and try again. Can you improve your score? Don't rush, it still needs to be clear!
2. write your own questions about this text and write down which guided reading dog would ask this type of question.

Re-watch part 3 of the Tempest and then re-tell the story. You might want to do this like a comic strip (not forgetting the features that you learned in school when we made our e-safety comics!), or you might just want to write it in paragraphs.
Before you start it might be an idea to use summarising Sheba to help you establish the main events of this part of the story.

Tuesday 7th July 2020
For this maths activity you are going to be doing some column addition (if you need a reminder have a look at this video), but there will be more numbers to work with than you might be used to. Don’t let it hold you back, if you work carefully through them you will be absolutely fine. I’ve had a go at this activity, and my top tips are:
1. look for your number bonds first
2. cross out the numbers you add together as you go along so you don’t use them more than once!
3. make notes of the totals as you go along, you will end up with lots of little jottings and that is fine!
Challenge- using the same table, work out the value of my name!
Remind yourself about adverbs and their job by watching this video.
Then have a go at this worksheet.
The answers are here
Challenge: write your own sentences for each adverb
Complete this wordsearch with this week's spellings on.
Wider Curriculum- ICT
Follow this link to a lesson exploring viruses and malware, it’s always a good idea to know how to protect your devices! There are also some activities on here to help increase your typing speed. I’ve had a go and my keyboard was on fire by the end!!
Have a go at creating your own tongue twister- the video suggests that it is related to the Tempest, but you could use your own ideas too. Once you’ve practiced it, why not challenge someone at home with it!
