Wednesday 20th January

Good morning year 3! 

You have responded well to the challenges so far this week, keep it up!



To start the day off, spend 10 minutes reading.

Then, try the next arithmetic sheet. 

Maths Lesson

Today we are using calculations we already know to help us solve other questions. Follow the slides below and watch the video when prompted.

Literacy lesson 
Start today's lesson by completing the next sheet for either your word detectives or spelling work. If anyone is still unsure about this then please contact school or email year 3.

So now you will have heard and watched 3 versions of Stone Soup (Nail Soup). We would now like you to to think about how the stories are similar (the same) and how they are different.

Below is a sheet to help you collect your thoughts.


Clues: think about the characters, the setting, the ingredients, the reason for making the soup, the moral etc. Anything else? 

We've included a PDF for anyone who is having problems accessing Word. Hope this helps!


Start the afternoon with a 10 minute read. If you have any recipe books at home, then these would be really useful to look at as we will be looking at recipes later in the week.

Do you have a favourite recipe?


This afternoon, we are carrying on with dance lessons and continuing  with the Indian dance that we started last week. 


Before we start any exercise we need to warm up so follow the video below first.

Indian dance

Last week,  we are started a new dance called Bhangra, which is a traditional dance from India. You can either watch the videos again from the beginning or pick up where you left off and piece the dance together afterwards. 


Dances can be learnt directly from the videos. It's up to you how you use them but we suggest the following:


  1. Watch the FULL DANCE video to get an idea of the whole dance from start to finish.
  2. Learn the first part of the dance using the PART 1 Video. Use pause and play on the video to control the speed of your learning.
  3. Once you are confident with PART 1, repeat the process with PART 2 and PART 3.
  4. If you are stuck on a particular area, the VOICED INSTRUCTIONS videos will slow the dance down and the coach on screen will talk you through the steps.
  5. When you have learnt all the parts, try and put the whole dance together.
  6. Do the dance all the way through a few times. When you think you know it, you could perform it to someone at home when they aren't busy.
