Imagine, Believe, Succeed

Monday 20th April 2020

Good Morning and Welcome back! 

Hello King-Smith Class. Welcome back after your Easter break. I hope that you managed to spend time with your family in the beautiful sunshine that we have had over the past two weeks (and managed to eat some yummy Easter eggs toolaugh). 

I really hope that you are now ready to put your learning hats back on and begin our new topic: 'Thatch and Kilt.' Alongside our new topic, we are going to begin reading a new story in reciprocal reading and all of our writing is going to be linked to this new book. I am very excited! I hope you are too!

Please be reminded that you can email me to share your work or ask for support if you have any questions (kingsmith@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk). 

Reciprocal Reading/Literacy

This term we are going to be reading a new book and it is called ‘The Legend of Captain Crow’s Teeth.’ It is written by an author named ‘Eoin Colfer.’

The title has the word ‘legend’ in it. What is a legend? Think about what you think it is.

Then, I would like you to research to find out what a legend is and write a few sentences explaining it.

After that, I would like you to give me some names of legends that you already know or have found during your research.

Think about and write some extra sentences about these questions: 

  • Do you have a favourite legend? 

  • Why are they your favourite? 

Maths 

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green - Today you will be learning to find a fraction of a set of objects. Follow this link (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/) to a video that should explain things clearly for you. Click ‘Week 2’ > ‘Lesson 4’ and watch the video. 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 multiply using the 5 times table. Make sure you count in 5’s to find the answer and remember the multiplication sign means ‘lots of’. 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 1- Today you will be learning to halve shapes and objects. Halving means there are 2 equal parts of a shape or object. 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).

History

For our summer term topic, we will be looking at the Anglo-Saxons. The name of the topic is ‘Thatch and Kilt’. The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, which we learnt all about earlier in the year. 

 

To begin our work on the Anglo-Saxons, I would like you to use this link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zxsbcdm/articles/zq2m6sg , the attached PowerPoint and other sources on the internet to answer these questions:

  1. Who were the Anglo-Saxons?
  2. Were they settlers or invaders?
  3. Where did they come from? Why?
  4. Who did they invade? 
  5. What are the reasons that the Anglo-Saxons came to Britain?
  6. Where in the world were the Anglo-Saxons originally from?
