Watch the video of the Black Hat again https://www.literacyshed.com/blackhat.html

 

Today we will be thinking about what the birds are doing in the story.

 

As you watch the video, write down as many words as you can that tell us what the birds are doing. These doing words are verbs

 

 

Every sentence needs to have a verb in it. Can you write 4 sentences about the story using some of these verbs?

Monday 6th July 2020

 

This is our last full week of English in Year 3 and we are going to finish with a lovely video I found on The Literacy Shed. There are lots of videos and activities on this website if you want to do some creative writing work over the summer holidays.

 

Watch the video here https://www.literacyshed.com/blackhat.html

 

When you have watched the video, answer these questions:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now we are going to focus more on the words used in the story. Use your phonics to help you with this activity. Say the words aloud so you can hear the sounds in the word. Rhyming words will end with the same sound.

Today you are going to write some sentences using sentence building. 

 

Remember a sentence starts with a capital letter and end with a full stop.

 

Look at the pictures and talk to an adult about who you can see, where the character is and what is happening. Look at how a sentence is built in parts using a noun (who), a verb (what is happening) and prepositions (where). 

 

Use the pictures below to write a sentence for each picture. 

 

You up can use the word cards to build each sentence or you can write some of your own.

Friday 19th June 2020

LI: To tell and invent a story. 

 

Today you will be inventing your own story based on the story that we have been using this week. You will be completing two different tasks that will help you along the way!

 

Task 1- With an adult, answer the questions below. Remember you don’t have to write them down just answer orally (with your voice)

Do you or any of your friends have a dog?


Have you ever taken a dog for a walk?


Tell your helper all about adventures you’ve had with a dog or make up an adventure with a dog.

 

 What was the funniest thing that happened? Was there anything scary? 

 

Task 2- Complete the sheet below.

 

Think about the questions below whilst you are completing your work. Draw the pictures of each point of your story instead of writing what is happening. 

 

Now make up a story about a walk with a dog and decide what happens.


Who will you go with?
Who might you meet? Family members, other dogs, neighbours, or your teacher. Where might you go? Would you visit corner shops, a playground, a park?
What will happen? Is it funny or scary?
Start by drawing pictures below to help you plan your story and decide what words you want to go with your pictures. If you have an adult helping you, they will read you the ideas here and could add in more ideas. 

 

Thursday 18th June 2020

LI: To recognise and use different word types. 

 

Today you will be developing your knowledge of different word types. All the different words that you will be looking at today are part of the story that we have been using this week. 

 

First, read or listen to the story again with an adult. You’ll find the link to the audio book below!

 

Did you know that the thing that will help you most at school is knowing lots and lots of words? The more words you speak every day, the easier it will be for you to learn to read and write. 

 

If you’re very good, your helper will explain all the words that perhaps you didn’t know and help you use them. If you use them, you will remember them. Then you can explain the words to your friends and help them to learn.

 

Task 1-

 

Let’s have a go now talking about some of the words from the story. 

 

First, we’ll look at pictures to help us understand what the words mean. 

Then we’ll look at some examples of how the word can be used. 

After that, let’s see if you can talk about them. 

 

 

Where is Max?

 

 

Now let’s have a look at a word type called Preposition. These type of words explain the position that something is in. For example, words like on, in, up, down, above, beside and through, all tell us where something is. 

 

In a story, they tell us where the action is happening and help carry the story along. Look at the two pictures below and read the words together. 

 

Which word goes with which picture? Then put the words into sentences so we can hear how these words help us know where things are. 

 

 

Task 2- Now look at the pictures of Snowy and the chair. Start with picture one point to it and ask yourself, ‘Where’s Snowy?’ Look closely at the picture and the words next to the picture- which one is correct?

 

Ask an adult to help you read the words.

 

 

Now put these into a sentence. 

 

For example; Snowy is in front of the chair.

Wednesday 17th June 2020

LI: To recall events in a story

 

Today you will be using your knowledge of this week's story and your learning yesterday to produce pictures based on the events in the story. However, your first task builds on the work that you did yesterday. Think about how you acted out the beginning, middle and end of your story here! 

 

Task 1-

using your voice, retell the story to an adult or older sibling in your house. Remember to use the following words when retelling your story and don’t worry if you miss parts out- your next task will help you. 

 

Once upon a time, 

Early one spring morning,

As soon as, 

First, Next, 

After that, Finally,

 

 

Task 2- 

All the pictures were from the middle of the story. Can you draw two things Max did at the beginning of the story? And Can you draw two things Max did at the end of the story? 

 

Use the template below to help you draw your pictures. Remember to use the story to help you!

 

Tuesday 16th June 2020

LI: To organize events in a story. 

 

Today you will be organising the events in our story from yesterday. Re-read the story or listen to it again- if you do this you will be able to put the events that happen in the story, in the correct order. Have fun!

 

Once upon a time, there was a black Labrador called Max who lived on the edge of a small town with his family

 

Early one Spring morning, Max woke up and thought to himself, “I'd like to go for a walk and collect some sticks.” So, he barked and he barked and he barked until he had woken everyone in the house!

 

As soon as Max had his harness fastened, his family opened the door, stepped outside and set off on their walk. The sun shone down from a bright, blue sky and birds sang up above in the trees. Max’s nose twitched with excitement as he sniffed the fresh air.

 

First, Max walked on a path near a canal. As he was walking, he saw a brown stick. Not too big, not too small but just right! “This looks a good stick,” thought Max. So, he picked it up and continued on his way. 

 

Next, Max walked along beside the canal until he came to a stone bridge. Max walked under the bridge where he found another stick. Not too heavy, not too light but just right! “This looks a grand stick,” thought Max. So, he picked it up and continued on his way. 

 

After that, Max walked on and on until he came to a deep, dark wood. There he found another stick that was not too tickly, not too prickly. Unfortunately, it was an extremely long stick ! Luckily, the path was very wide. ‘This looks a fun stick’, thought Max so he picked it up and continued on his way. 

 

Finally, Max arrived at the beach where noisy seagulls swooped. He was feeling so hot that he jumped into the sea to cool down. Splash! Max swam round and round and rounduntil he found another stick, floating in the sea. Not too straight, not too bendy but just right! “This looks an unusual stick,” thought Max so he grabbed it and swam to the shore. 

 

At last, Max and his family returned home. What a very long walk I’ve had, thought Max and look how many sticks I found! Max yawned. He curled up in his bed, closed his eyes and fell fast asleep dreaming of his next adventure. 

 

We have a problem. Max really enjoyed his walk, his owner managed to take some pictures along the way! She took them to be printed but unfortunately, they printed out all mixed up. Look at what has happened below. 

 

TASK 1-

 

Your task is to sort the pictures out: Have a good look at the pictures of Max and then see if you can work out what order they should be in. Can you number each of the 5 pictures from the story? 

 

Think about : 

Where did Max go first?
Where did he go next?
Where did he go after that? What was the problem? Where did he go then?
Where did he finally go before he returned home? 

 

TASK 2-

Now the photos from the middle of my walk are in the right order, can you act out the story? What happened at the start of my story and at the end? Remember if you need to read or listen to the story again do so! 

 

Your task is to act out the story! Have fun!

Monday 15th June 2020

 

LI: To answer questions about a story. 

 

This week you will be working on a story called The amazing adventures of Max. Today you will be reading the story and answering questions about it. Read the story with an adult or you could listen to the audio book below- Just click on the link.

Max's Marvellous Adventure

 

Once upon a time, there was a black Labrador called Max who lived on the edge of a small town with his family.

Task:

 

With an adult, answer the questions below. Remember you can use the text to help you answer these questions.

Monday 8th June 2020

 

Today we want you to practise spelling and using some high frequency words. These are words that are used a lot in the English language but their spellings may not always be that easy to remember so we have to practise them over and over.

 

First, try spelling these words using Look, cover, write, check. That means you 

1) Look at the word

2) Cover it up

3) Have a go at spelling it

4) Check to see if you got the spelling correct.

 

Now you have practised spelling the words, see if you can put the correct word from above into the missing space. Try to write the whole sentence out.

Friday 22nd May 2020 – To write in full sentences

 

Today we will be using our learning from yesterday to write sentences about the film Catch It.

 

Watch the video again here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c88QE6yGhfM

 

 

Once you have written your sentences you could use them to retell the story. You could write it down or tell it to someone in your house.

 

Here are some other activities based on Catch It that you could complete over half term:

 

 

 

Thursday 21st May 2020 – To use adjectives

 

We use adjectives to describe things. They tell us more about the thing we are talking about. Adjectives make our writing better.

 

Examples of adjectives are:

 

  • colours (green, blue, red, yellow etc.)
  • height (short, tall, tiny, large, vast)
  • speed (quick, slow)
  • temperature (hot, cold, freezing, warm)
  • taste (juicy, spicy, sweet)

 

Can you think of any more?

 

This website has lots of good information about adjectives https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zk9pnrd

 

 

Make sure when you label your fruit that you use adjectives.

For example: a juicy, red strawberry.

Wednesday 20th May 2020 – To identify verbs

 

A verb is a word we use to describe an action. We sometimes call them doing words.

 

For example:

run

walk

play

eat

sing

shout

fly

throw

 

These words can be written in different ways to show whether they are happening now or have already happened. They may look like this:

 

 

running                      ran

walking                     walked

playing                   played

eating                        ate

singing                      sang

shouting                   shouted

flying                        flew

throwing                 threw

 

 

Every sentence needs a verb.

 

Use the video to create a list of verbs you can see happening. Think about the things the meerkats and vultures are doing.

 

 

Can you use any of these verbs in a sentence? You could also use some of the words you learnt in yesterday's lesson.
