Y3 Amethyst Home Learning
Approximate Directed Activity Time - 2 - 3 hours
Ideally, every day we would like children to do the following:
English work - about 1 hour
Maths work - about 50 mins
Topic work - about 1 hour.
Helping your child with home learning - what to do:
If your child is completing the reading scheme then please ask an adult or older sibling to hear them read their school reading book. If you do not have a school reading book, you can use a picture book from home or an online book.
Talk to them about what they have read, perhaps ask them questions such as: what does this word mean on this page? Can you think of another word that means the same? Which bit made you feel…….? How does the character feel on this page - why?
Listen out for them reading confidently, without having to sound each word out individually.
There is an English activity booklet which can be downloaded below. This contains a variety of English activities including comprehension, spelling work and writing prompts. You should aim to complete one activity a day.
If your child would prefer, I have also shared a website called ‘Pobble365’ (https://www.pobble365.com/) that has some lovely photos and questions to answer. You can click on the button at the top called 'pick a day' and choose a picture or do the one presented to you. Your child might choose to answer the questions as a comprehension task, or they could use a chosen picture as a writing stimulus to produce a story. Encourage your child to use exciting vocabulary to create a really interesting piece of writing and check their spelling carefully.

Science – Animals Including Humans
In this topic we will be studying food webs, the human body, skeletons, muscles and the differences between animal groups. Research your favourite animal and create a scientific diagram detailing the skeleton and diet of the animal. What other facts could you discover about them? Then, research about the human body (the skeleton and diet) and make a comparison. What is the same and what is different and why?
Music – Mood
How does music make you feel? Can you make a collection of songs that make you feel happy, sad, uplifted etc.
Computing – Esafety
Create a poster giving tips to adults and children about how to use computers and the internet safely. Consider also, use of mobile phones and how these need to be used carefully.
Art – Portraits
Using any art materials you have at home (pencils, crayons, paint etc) paint either a self-portrait or a portrait of someone in your family. Use the proportions guide to help you by watching the video link here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3TikcVkFow
Alternative ideas (please feel free to use as needed):
Children can freely explore the resources in the KS2 section. There are activities for all areas of the curriculum with videos to watch and activities to play including Phonics and Maths resources. It is a closed site and safe for children to use without supervision.
