Here is the link for you to get started. Please email these to our year group emails so we can pass them on to your new teacher.

This week our focus will be the World of Work. We have planned a range of exciting tasks to keep you busy. We also have a spelling, grammar, maths, PSHE, P4C, and computing tasks for you to complete too. Remember to send in pictures of your work to year3@thomasbuxtonps.co.uk

PSHE- What is the difference between happiness and success?

Often people think that happiness and success is linked together very closely. When we think about success, most people think about earning money and being successful in the workplace. Most people believe that being ‘success’ in this way will cause you to be happy. Let’s challenge these ideas today- what is the difference between happiness and success? This is our enquiry question today. Can you use the following questions to delve deeper.

1.To help children to feel happy in their school lives, it is helpful to have an environment which enables the feeling of happiness and wellbeing. What are the key ingredients to make a happy classroom do you think? Take a piece of paper and write the title “Ingredients for a happy classroom.”

2. Take a piece paper and write down the world HAPPINESS. Now draw as many pictures as you can to represent the word and all of the different feelings that you associate with happiness. When you have finished, why not pin this up in your house to look at each day as your map of happiness!

3. Would you rather be happy or successful? Think about it for a while and then share your thoughts. Write down your ideas in a letter to yourself. Does success mean you have lots of money? Why? Why not? Can you be financially rich and unhappy? Can you be happy and financially poor? Now watch this short video of other children talking about whether they’d rather be rich or happy: What does success mean to you?

Computing- T is for?

For computing this week you will be watch a video about keeping safe on the internet. While you watch the video you will be asked lots of questions, so if you can, watch the video with at least one member of the family so you can have a discussion. If you are watching the video alone, then that is fine too, think about the questions and jot down your ideas on paper.

Click on the video here or here   https://www.childnet.com/resources/video-lessons/the-t-rule . Once you have finished watching the video have a go at one or all of the following challenges.

  1. There are lots of people that we can talk to if something happens online. Draw a picture of yourself on your favourite app or game. Write or draw around the edges the people you could tell if you needed some help.
  2. Practice taking a screen shot on your device, that way if something happens online that you are worried or unsure about you can show someone.
  3. Create a story about someone who uses the T rule when they’re having a difficult time online. You could write or type or even draw it.

Pick whichever challenge you’d like to try, or have a go at all three! Adults – there’s lots more information about staying safe online on our website www.Childnet.com.
