Imagine, Believe, Succeed

Wednesday 20th May 2020

Good Morning, 

 

I will be sending out the Zoom call details today... Please check your emails if your child would like to attend. It is happening on Thursday at 2 p.m.  Myself and Miss Brown have discussed it and we are going to be allowing all of Year 3 access to this Zoom call. This will be a nice opportunity for our class to see and speak with children from Dahl class, as well as each other. 

Please note: This will be a 30-40 minute call which will not be a 'learning' activity it is purely to allow children to see each other and chat with one another as it has been such a long time without this opportunity. 

 

Stay safe, 

Miss Sharpe

Reciprocal Reading 

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

 

Today we are going to focus on clarifying words so that we understand what is happening in the story. So read all of the pages below and then see the list of words to clarify. Remember you can use a dictionary to find out what the words mean and write a short sentence explaining each word meaning. 

 

Words to clarify: 

  • crags

  • tide

  • hogwash

  • haunting

  • crescent moon 

  • phosphorescence

  • complaints

  • limestone

Literacy 

Today, we are going to begin planning our big write on friday. We will plan our writing by using an ‘S’ Plan for Will's Journey home. 

 

First task- think about Will’s journey. Tell an adult or jot down some words or phrases to help you remember his journey home. 

 

Second task - Draw an ‘S’ on the paper. Remember this needs to be fairly big (fill the size of the paper and that should be fine). You are going to draw a mini picture to help you remember each part of the journey. 

 

Third task - Make notes around each picture to help you remember what is happening in each part of the journey/what he sees etc. 

 

You do not need to write sentences for this or write any describing words etc. This is just a basic plan today to help you sequence events of Will's journey and to help you remember the key features of this. 

Below there are some examples of ‘S’ plans should you need to see one.

Maths

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green - Today you will be learning about right angles in shapes. Remember, a right angle measures at 90 degrees. 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 measure length in meters. 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).

 

Blue 1 - Today you will be learning about 1:1 correspondence. You must make sure there is a 1:1 ratio of the different objects/people/images. To find the answer, count how many there is of one object, then count how many there are of the other object or check if there is enough for a 1:1 correspondence. 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 

Today we would like you to explore and create a timeline of events that took place during the Anglo-Saxon era. The Angl-Saxon era began in 410AD and lasted for around 600 years till 1066AD. Remember AD is believed to be when Jesus was born, so 410AD means 410 years after the birth of Jesus. 

 

Attached is a blank timeline and  a range of different events. If you have access to a printer, you could cut out the events and place them in the right order. If not, feel free to draw your timeline and write the events out. 

 

After that, answer these questions:

  • In AD 449, who arrived in Britain?

  • In what year did the vikings attack from Norway?

  • Who was the second king of Wessex?

  • In which major battle did King Harold die?
