I have used this as a Literacy Starter in Year 3. I cut up the different parts of sentences and gave them out. Each child had to find a partner who would complete their sentence. You could also use this as a main activity for Lower Ability children.
Three worksheets that can be used when investigating the permeability and durability of rocks. The lower ability worksheet has a results table along with a cloze procedure for the children to complete. The middle ability worksheet leaves spaces for children to write their prediction, method and conclusion. The final worksheet I have attached is simply an empty results table for higher ability children to fill in. I expect the higher ability children to write their prediction, method and conclusion straight into their books.
Created while studying George's Marvellous Medicine in Year 3. I have included an example of a recipe for George's Marvellous Medicine and a blank template for children to write their own recipe. It makes nice display work.
Used when teaching about food groups and healthy eating. This could be during a science lesson or a cooking lesson. The children are given the main sheet split into the 5 food groups (carbohydrates, proteins, fruit and vegetables, fats and sugars, dairy). There are examples of different foods on the sheet to support them. They must then cut out the foods on the additional sheet and sort them into the correct food groups.
A planning sheet on which children can plan a persuasive letter to Willy Wonka. The idea is for children to persuade Mr Wonka to make their chocolate bar in his factory. This sheet breaks down the letter into different paragraphs that the children should use.
These resources were made to support children in Literacy lessons. They can be laminated and left on the tables. The first resource reminds children of the 5Ws when writing a report. They can then make sure they have answered all of the questions. the second resource is a prompt to remind children when to begin a new paragraph.
Every two years, our school puts on a Summer Carnival where each year group gives a performance based around a different country. Last year, Year 3's country was Japan. The children learnt how to sing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' in Japanese. They also performed a contemporary dance and wore traditional Japanese clothes and accessories. It was a fantastic event and the children loved every minute of it. I have uploaded the lyrics in case you would like to try something similar at your school.

This worksheet could be used in a variety of lessons. We used it as part of our topic on the 'Local Area'. We wanted to know what different religions were in our community so we started with our class/school. Children used this tally chart to collect data about the different religions in each class. They could then draw a conclusion about the religions in our school.
I created this worksheet to be used as part of the Year 3 Science topic 'Rocks and Soils'. Children had to describe each rock using a range of scientific vocabulary which was provided. They then had to think about the properties of each rock and suggest uses for them.
As part of our topic on 'Modern Britain', my Year 3 class created leaflets for tourists explaining some of the things they had learnt about Britain. There are three different leaflets included in this pack. The first is a blank trifold leaflet with lines which my higher ability group used. The second is another trifold leaflet, this time with subheadings given. The third is a simpler template for lower ability children, again with subheadings given.
In this Science lesson, children consider which foods are best for growth and muscle reparation (proteins) and which foods are best for giving us energy (carbohydrates). One of the activities asks children to sort different foods into a table, deciding whether they are best for growth or activity. They then create a diet for an athlete and a diet for a child using what they have learnt. They should be able to explain why they have chosen the foods they have as well as explaining the differences between the two diets.
As part of a Year 3 Geography Topic on 'Our Local Area', I took my class on a walk around the local streets. Whilst walking, most children used a key to colour the buildings on a map, identifying the land use (e.g. commercial, residential, educational, recreational etc.). However, this wasn't suitable for the lower ability children in my class so I gave them pictures of different buildings and they had to tally how many of each type of building they saw. When they returned to class, they could then cut out pictures of the different buildings in order to make their own pictogram. These pictures and the pictogram template are included in this pack.
