Year 3 - Home Learning - 1st June 2020
These are not expected activities and are only to support you if you want further ideas. Please do not put yourself or your child under any pressure to complete. We would advise you not to try and emulate a school day and just work through any activities you are able to. Do not worry if you do not have a printer or any of the resources at home for these activities as you can adapt them however you like to suit you and your child.

Friday 5th June
This is by a Parisian artist called Laurent Chehere and it’s similar to 'Pixar's Up'.
I would like you to describe in the 1st person what you can see as you’re looking up at the house. You could write about where it is landing, or how it is flying or where it is heading to on its travels. Make sure you are using full stops and capital letters. Can you use a preposition?
Here is an example:
Yesterday I looked up at the bright sky and I saw a floating house. It was getting higher and higher. It could see four windows with pretty flowers standing proud. There was also 4 thin pieces of rope holding up the house. It looked magical.

Can you plan a healthy lunchbox?
Use the Eatwell Guide to plan a healthy lunchbox.
Match each food you have chosen to the food group it belongs to.

Drawing a cross section of a fruit
Fruits such as oranges, lime, tomatoes, kiwi, etc are interesting to cut through and draw.
Look closely at the fruit you have chosen, look for shapes and patterns.
Can you create a piece of artwork about your fruit using what you have in your house? It could be a simple pencil drawing or collage or painting- use your imagination.

Can you create a superhero fruit character?
Now you need to make a speech bubble for your character giving a little information about him or her. You could tell me where they grow, why are they good for you, how can you eat them.
Next week we will be making a healthy sandwich, create some faces using fruit and vegetables and find out where different fruit and vegetables come from. More details to follow!
