Class 3  Summer Term 2017 Homework tasks

Where in the World?

Activities can be done in any order and completed as creatively as you wish. Remember to bring them in to school ready for show and tell. They should be completed by the end of the Summer term.


Currency Calulator

  • What foreign coins do you know? Have you got any in your house? Find out what some foreign coins or notes look like and how much English money they are worth. 

Holiday diary/ postcard

  • If you go anywhere exciting for the weekend, send us a postcard or write a diary to tell us about where you have been, what you saw and why you went.

  • Choose a country of the world and create a model of some of the landmarks, landscape or buildings you would find there. Be as creative as you can be, maybe the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and Sacre Coeur made out of lego? 

  • Using your ICT skills create a passport for yourself with images and information you will need to visit another country.

  • Can you be a weather reporter?

  • Choose a location in the world for tourists and write a weather forecast for the day using physical features (mountains, rivers etc) and landmarks that tourists might want to visit. Would today be the best day to visit or would tomorrow be sunnier and warmer? Think about the temperature, wind speed, wind direction, weather conditions for your location. You could even video or perform it for us! 

Riddle me this

  • Write a series of clues about a foreign country for us to guess where you are in the world. You need to know as much as you can find out about your country and make your clues tricky, but give an easy clue to your teachers! 

Book review

  • Is your reading book set in a different country? Draw a map or write about what your story tells you about what life is like in a different country. 

Remember, try to complete at least 1 every 2 weeks. Year 4s should try to complete one a week if you wish, but in line with school policy at the bare minimum 1 every half term of quality, well presented work.

Government guidelines for homework in Year 3 and 4: 1 ½ hours per week

 






 
 
 


As part of their RE topic on Saints, Class 3 were challenged to think about a person worthy of being a living Saint. In class we discussed what a saint is, and found out that you cannot be a saint until 5 years after you die. Members of the class presented their chosen nominees to the class and we voted on who we thought worthy of being a living saint. The results made interesting reading.

Our nominees are:


Sir Terry Wogan

Sir David Attenborough

Johnny Wilkinson

Esther Ranzem

Barrack Obama

Steve Backshall

Nelson Mandela

Judge Rinder

Ronaldo

Queen Elizabeth 2nd

Prince Harry

The winners are:

Jerzy (Jurek) Owsiak (2nd)
