Imagine, Believe, Succeed

Friday 15th May 2020

Good Morning! 

 

First of all, thank you to those of you who joined me on 'Zoom' yesterday. I really enjoyed seeing your smiling faces and having a chat with you all. I cannot wait to do another one next week and hopefully we may see more of you all too! Myself and Miss Brown have discussed perhaps having a joint 'Zoom' call next week so that the whole of year 3 have the opportunity to see each other and chat to one another. I hope you will join us! I will post more details next week! 

 

Enjoy your Friday and have a lovely weekend too! Lets hope that there is some sunshine for us! smiley

 

Stay Safe, 

Miss Sharpe. 

Reciprocal Reading 

Today we are going to continue reading chapter 3 of our story ‘The Legend of Captain Crow’s Teeth.’

 

Read the pages and then answer these questions. Remember they must be answered in full sentences, in cursive handwriting and use correct punctuation (capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and commas). 

 

Q1. What is a ‘jig’?

Q2. Why did the author use the words ‘human chain’ to describe what the people looked like when they were dancing? 

Q3. How do you think Will felt when the girl punched him in the shoulder? Use evidence from the text. 

Q4. What was Will asked to do by the ‘Fake Pirate’ that he didn’t want to do?

Q5. How do you think that Will and the other 9 Year olds felt when the author said they ‘huddled together like frightened rabbits surrounded by wolves’?

Writing 

Today, you are going to write your explanation of phosphorescence, this is your big write. 

 

I will be looking to see these writing skills being applied in your writing:: 

  • cursive handwriting 

  • capital letters

  • full stops

  • finger spaces

  • commas

  • question marks and maybe some exclamation marks

 

Remember to include the features of an explanation text: 

  • Title - What is Phosphorescence? 

  • Introduction- Introduce and engage the reader and make them want to read more. 

  • paragraphs/text boxes/interesting fact boxes (Did you know…?) 

  • Technical vocabulary - words related to the topic you are explaining. 

  • Adverbs of time (next, then, after that). 

  • Diagrams - pictures relating to the topic of discussion 

  • Conclusion - summarise the information given in your explanation. 

 

Please see below the features checklist and the ‘Explanations Text’ poster.

Maths

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green - Today you will be learning to work out start and end times. Remember, you can use a numberline to help you work forwards and backwards to find the answer. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

 

Blue 2 - Today you will be learning to find ¾. It is easiest to find ¼ first and then find ¾. Remember to find ¼, you can half and half again. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

 

Blue 1Today you will be learning to order numbers. When ordering numbers to 100, you must look at the tens digit first, then look at the ones digit. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

Art 

For this week’s art, I would like you to get your creative hats on!

 

I would like you to draw yourself as a pirate using as many household objects as you can. The household object is to be used as part of your body (peg leg/arm/clothing) or face (nose/hair/beard) etc.

 

Attached are some pictures you can use as inspiration. Be as creative as possible and send your creations over to our class email - I would love to see what you came up with!
