One Childhood, One Chance

Thursday 4th June Learning

Good morning Year 3! We hope that you are enjoying our space topic! Here is today's learning:


Reading: Today we will read a little more of Space Hunt. Read pages 12 to 15 below.

Summarise what happened on these 4 pages. You could use bullet points to write down the main things that happened.


Today we would like you to rewrite the scene that you have read on page 12 to 15. Use your summary to make sure you include all the main parts. Write in the third person and in the past tense. If you want to include speech, don’t forget to include inverted commas.

You could start like this:

The four worried crew members looked at each other in despair. They knew that they needed to do something to escape from the evil Krool ship.

“How can we beat them to the planet?” asked Cat.

“I have an idea,” said Tiger, “we can try to divert all the power to the engines.”

EXTRA CHALLENGE: If you’d like an extra challenge, write the next part of the story after page 15. What will happen now that the power has been diverted to the engines?


Today we are going to be solving addition and subtraction word problem. Try to pick out the key information from the problem to find out whether you need to add or subtract.

For example:

A shop has 76 pairs of socks. 33 pairs are white socks. How many other pairs are their?

We need to take away 33 white socks from 76 to find how many are left over.

Attached at questions for you to answer. They are differentiated, so choose the questions that suit your ability.


The gas planets

The 4 planets that are furthest from the Sun are called the gas planets as they are giant balls of gases. They are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Watch this video to find out about them:

There is also an activity and a quiz to complete underneath the video.

Here are 2 more video clips to take a closer look at Jupiter and Uranus:

Open the Planet Fact sheets below. Choose 2 of the gas planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus or Neptune) and using the information given create a fact sheet about the 2 gas planets you have chosen. You could include a picture of each planet if you have colouring pens or pencils or a printer.
