# Monday 20th April 2020

Hello Dahl Class, I hope you have all had a lovely Easter break and that you made the most of the glorious sunshine. I also hope you managed to eat some chocolate for Easter. This morning, you need to put your learning caps back on ready to start our new topic, 'Thatch and Kilt'. Enjoy, and be sure to email our class address (dahl@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk) if you need any support or have any questions.

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

ROYG - 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).

B2 - 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).

B1 - 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:

• Who were the Anglo-Saxons?
• Were they settlers or invaders?
• Where did they come from? Why?
• Who did they invade? Why?
• What are the reasons that the Anglo-Saxons came to Britain?
• Where in the world were the Anglo-Saxons originally from?
