# Thursday 21st May 2020

Hello Dahl class! Remember we have a Year 3 Zoom at 2pm today - this is a chance to see your friends and have a catch up. Ask the grown ups at home to check their emails for the details on how to join us. I hope to see lots of you there

Today, we are going to continue reading chapter 4 of our book ‘The Legend of Captain Crow’s Teeth.’

Read today’s pages and then you will need to think about the key events that happened in this part of the story and write a summary of what you read in today’s part of the chapter.

Remember, a summary is only short and should only include the key events. It should not be a long piece of writing - try and write your summary in no more than 3 or 4 sentences.

Literacy

Today, I would like you to recap your ‘S’ plan that you created yesterday. Then, you are going to think carefully about each part of your ‘S’ plan and you are going to think of powerful:

• Verbs (doing words)
• Adverbs (words to tell me how, where or when an action happened - usually ending in 'ly')
• Expanded noun phrases (more than one adjective to describe something)

One you have thought of some words and phrases for each part of the journey, you will need to write them onto your ‘S’ plan, next to the picture that represents that part of the story. These will be used during your writing tomorrow to help make your story more interesting.

Maths

ROYG - Today you will be learning to compare angles. An acute angle is an angle that is smaller than a right angle (90 degrees) and an obtuse angle is an angle bigger than a right angle. There is a diagram attached to help you see this. 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 compare lengths. You will need to use <, > and = symbols. Remember that a meter is bigger than a centimeter because there are 100cm in 1m. 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 compare objects. There will be a range of mathematical language used such as, ‘more than’, ‘less than’, ‘fewer’. You need to be able to understand whether this language means more or less. 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).

Spelling

Today in spellings, you are going to practise spelling some more of your common exception words. Below, I have chosen some of the words that were commonly misspelt in the assessment we did before school closed.  Please see below the words I would like you to practise using the triangle method, as we have done in previous weeks, according to your literacy group.

ROYG - possess, possession, possible, potatoes, probably, quarter, separate and various

B2 - important, island, learn, answer, arrive, build and nearly

B1 - once, friend, school, pull, full, are and house

Challenge - use 3 of the words you have practised spelling in sentences. Ask an adult to check the sentence makes sense and that the word has been spelt correctly.
