Imagine, Believe, Succeed

Wednesday 20th May 2020

Hello Dahl class! I have now sent out the invitation link to our Year 3 Zoom for tomorrow. Please let me know if the grown ups at home have not received the email and I will make sure I send it again. 

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. If you do not have a dictionary, you can use https://www.dictionary.com/.  

 

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. We have done lots of these in school so you should be able to tell a grown up at home what an 'S' plan is.

 

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 (around 4/5 pictures around the 'S').

 

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

 

ROYG - 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).

 

B2 - 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).

 

B1 - 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 Anglo-Saxon era began in 410 AD and lasted for around 600 years till 1066 AD. 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 for you to order on the timeline. 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?
