Yr 3 Daily Tasks Week beginning 30 March
Year 3 Healthy Eating Project 30th March 2020 – 3rd April 2020
We hope you had a relaxing weekend and managed to enjoy some of the sunshine.
This week, we’ve got a few activities for you to complete that relate to our Enquiry – ‘What does it mean to be healthy?’
As Authors this week you’ll be writing instructions, in the form of a recipe.
As Chefs, we’d like you to design a healthy 3-course meal and make at least one of your courses. When you design your courses, be creative with your ingredients and try to use what's available.
We'll be breaking down the recipe writing and cooking into smaller tasks throughout the week, and still making sure you get your daily fix of Maths and Reading. As always, if you've got any questions, you can e-mail us and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. We're hoping you'll really enjoy having something to really get your teeth into!
Friday's daily tasks:

Tuesday's Daily Tasks
Have a look at the reading comprehension about Mo Farah – a British athlete who is an inspiration to all of us. No peeking at the answers until you’re finished!
Help! My computer has done something really strange with this recipe and it’s all muddled up! Your task today is to write out the recipe correctly, making sure that it’s all in the right order and makes sense. You could use numbered steps to make it easier for your reader, or add your own illustrations to make it even clearer.
If you’d like more of a challenge, think of other ways in which you can improve the recipe.
· You could make each instruction more detailed and specific by including adverbs.
· How could you draw your reader in, with an introduction about your recipe?
· Perhaps you have a ‘Top Tip’ about the recipe or about how it could be modified for the reader’s own tastes.
Today's learning is all about using bar models to help you find non-unit fractions of a number. There are some questions for you to complete in your books and we've also uploaded a separate video to show you the method we'd like you to use.
Mr Barham has been cooking! Along with Emma, his partner and our visiting nutritionist earlier this term, Mr Barham has made some delicious vegetable fritters. Have a look at the 3 videos below, which will show you the step-by-step process needed to make these delicious, healthy treats.
Watch and take notes on how the ingredients are prepared and combined.
· Notice which words are used to describe the processes and actions.
· Are there any top tips?
· Are any possible alternatives offered?
Then begin to plan your own recipe(s) for your healthy menu. You might want to:
· Start making a list of the ingredients you’ll need for the dish(es) you plan to make.
· Draw how you plan to present your finished dish(es) on a plate.
· Give your dish(es) an appetising name.
· Design a menu, showing the 3 courses you’re planning.
Monday’s Daily Tasks:
Have a look at the recipe examples we’ve provided.
What do you think the author has done to make sure the instructions are clear?
- Consider how the instructions are set out and organised.
- What style are the instructions written in?
- What language is used - bossy (imperative) verbs, adverbs to describe how an action is done, time conjunctions (then, next, until) to order the instructions.
In your books, write down examples of the features of a recipe that you find - we’ve uploaded a set of success criteria to help you find them. There’s also a video about how to write a recipe that we thought was really funny, but still very useful!
Have a look at the Healthy Eating reading comprehension task and answer the questions in your books. For an extra challenge, there is a short writing task at the end, if you'd like to do it.
Some more fractions calculations for you to solve today - there's a video to support you with your method and some questions for you to have a go at.
