Computing- Be Smart with a Heart

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/with-a-heart . Once you have finished watching the video have a go at one or all of the following challenges.

  1. We challenge you to spread the word about all the SMART rules and especially how people can be SMART with a heart. Be as creative as possible – write about them, draw them, act them out – you could even sing about them!
  2. We challenge you to write a recipe for a better internet. What ingredients would it need? When you’re done, perhaps you can do some real cooking and bake some SMART with a heart themed treats to share with your friends or family.
  3. We challenge you to show that you can be SMART with a heart by doing something kind online for a friend or family member. It doesn’t have to be tricky – a nice comment, a compliment or sharing a funny picture is enough!

Reading:

Listen to The Koala Who Could and then answer the questions below.

  • What does ‘change’ mean? How can change be positive? When can it be negative?
  • Think of a time when something in your life changed. What was it? How did it affect you? How did you react?
  • Discuss strategies that we can use when something in life is changing. How can we help others when their life is changing?
  • Kevin is terribly good at three things: clinging, napping and munching on leaf-buns. What three things are you really good at? What skill do you need to improve?
  • Why is Kevin afraid of change? How did his friends help him?
  • What does this story teach us? What does it mean to have a ‘CAN-DO’ attitude? How could you use this in your own life?

Draw each event next to the date to help you remember it. Finish your life map with the present day. Use this website to help: Drawing a life map
  2. Make a Me-Jigsaw: Take a piece of paper and draw a picture of yourself. Don’t worry about being great at art, just draw however you wish. When you have finished, cut the picture up into five or six pieces. On the back of each piece write something about yourself identity (for example things you love). This jigsaw is a good reminder about how unique you are, with every bit of you a bit like pieces of a puzzle that only fit together in one way to make you!
  3. Exploring your name: What do you know about your name and its meaning? What is its origin? What does it mean to you? How has it impacted your life experiences? Spend some time researching the meaning of your name and talk with your family about why this name was chosen and what it means.
  4. Draw a large circle in the middle of a page and five circles around the outside of the first one. Now draw a picture of yourself in the centre circle and write about the different aspects of your identity in each of the outer circles, starting with information about your name in the second circle. You could think about your family, school, hobbies, goals, favourite things.

Task 2: We would like every child to complete a pen portrait that will introduce you to your brand new teacher. You can write and draw on the worksheet or design and complete your own version at home. Please email these to our year group emails so we can pass them on to your new teacher.

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.

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.

Hello year 3. We hope you are having a great week so far. This week our focus will be Outdoor Learning again. We have planned a range of science and art tasks to help develop your scientific and creative skills as well as encourage you to get outside and active. We also have a spelling, grammar, maths, PSHE, P4C, RRSA and computing tasks for you to complete too. Remember to send in pictures of your work to year3@thomasbuxtonps.co.uk

Science

Nutrition

Humans need a variety of different food types to keep us healthy and allow all our bodily functions to take place. Just like a car which needs petrol, people need food to keep us moving. People are more complex than cars. For the human body to function it needs many different types of fuel in the form of food. The human body needs food for energy, to keep warm, to help us grow and repair our body. We need many nutrients on a daily basis in order to stay healthy. The three main nutrient groups in food are carbohydrates, protein and fats. We also need minerals and vitamins. A good balanced diet of fresh food helps to keep us healthy.

Watch this video to find out more about the different food types our body needs to stay healthy. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/ztr3cdm

Here is a summary of the food groups and why our body needs them.
This diagram summarises the types of foods that belong to the different food groups and how much you should be eating in your diet. Adults and children need to ensure that most of the diet is made up of fruits and vegetables and carbohydrates- can you see their sections are the biggest? Next we need to ensure we have lots of proteins and diary products- look at the diagram to see the types of food you need. Outside of the pie chart you have examples of sugary food (these should be eaten in moderation) you don’t need them in order to have a healthy balanced diet.

Task: Create a food journal for the week- make a record of all the food you eat. Assess you diary by the end of the 7 days- are you having a balanced diet? What foods do you need to have more of? Which foods do you need to eat less? Use the example below to create your own journal.

Nature

Have a look at our nature tasks for this week. Can you include members of your family whilst completing them? If you are doing this task alone then you could record your thoughts whilst thinking through the questions.

Thinking question: Why is spending time in nature so good for us?

Tasks:

  1. What are the sounds of nature? Sometimes we don’t notice all the sounds that nature makes around us. Sit at your window, in your garden, or any outdoor space that you have access to for 10 minutes and write down all the sounds of nature that you can hear. For example, the different sounds of the birds, rain hitting your roof, leaves rustling in the wind, or bees buzzing around.
  2. Every season has its highlights and special experiences that we encounter when spending time outdoors. Do you have a memory or a favourite thing you do in spring, summer, autumn and winter? Open this worksheet on the seasons and follow the instructions: Connecting to the seasons
  3. What would you say to nature – to a bird, a flower or a tree – if you had the chance? Use this worksheet and follow the instructions to write your letter to nature: Writing to nature
  4. Become a nature photographer! Use a digital camera or a smartphone camera and try to notice the very small details of nature around you that you had not seen before! Use this worksheet to guide your project: Be a mindful nature photographer .

Art

This week you will be learning how to create a textured drawing. For this lesson you will need.

  • Paper- it can be any size (plain or lined)
  • A pencil
  • Rubber (optional)
You will be experimenting with lines to create different textures and tones to help your drawings come alive.

You will be learning about Vincent Van Gogh who is one of the world’s most famous artists. He is well known for his textured paintings.

Here are some of his most famous paintings. Have a go at recreating one of this paintings.

Click here to get started with the lesson!

Task: Draw the view. What can you see from one of the windows of your house?

  • Include a range of textures for different things you can see.
  • Use the tip and side of your pencil for different effects.

Remember to send in pictures of your work.

PSHE- Role models

Last term, we learnt about some significant people who have helped to change the world. We were all inspired by Wangari Maathai’s environmental work in Kenya- she is a role model for many people. She had an incredibly interesting life and she had many achievements that helped to change the world forever. People admire her, respect her and are inspired to take action just like she did.

Task 1: Remind yourself of Wangari’s work by reading the short biography of her below and answering the questions.

  • What were the problems in Kenya?
  • What did she do to solve these problems?
  • Why do you think Wangari wanted to make changes to Kenya?
  • Why is she considered a role model?

Task 2: Pick a role model in your life. It could be a famous person or someone that you know. Think about why they are an inspiration to you. Why do you admire them? How have they made the world a better place? How have they made your life better? Research their life using the internet. If your role model is someone you know then prepare some questions for them and give them an interview (ask their permission first). Create a biography in the style above about their life and achievements. You could include information about:

  • Childhood
  • Achievements
  • Interests
  • Fun facts

Maths

Have a look at the question below. Do they all represent the number 321? Can you explain the mistake(s) for the ones that are wrong?

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-a-rule . Once you have finished watching the video have a go at one or all of the following challenges.

  3. Create a quiz to test your friends and family on the A rule.
