Good morning Year 3,
Thank you for sending your work to me from Friday, if you have not yet received my reply, keep a look out, it is coming to you today. I will also call you all at some point this week to see how you are. Here is a reminder of our timetable for this week.
I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Remember you can access Oxford Owls by clicking on the student login. This means you have a range of books you can read throughout your time at home. Make a note of the books you have read in the back of your homework books. I would love to see all the extra reading you manage.
Today, you are going to start to think about the creature in the film in order to produce a report in coming days. To do this, you are going to need to sound like an expert!
Re-watch the film –
- Using the sheet 1 in the English Extra pack, fill in as much detail as you can (e.g. The creature has two large round yellow eyes) about the creature in the film.
- Read sheet 2 in the English Extra pack, underline or write out any ‘technical language’ as you read. This will help you later in the week.
- When you have written out the technical language, check you understand it. If there are words you are unsure about, use a dictionary to find out more. If you do not have a dictionary at home, you can use an online dictionary – https://kids.britannica.com/kids/browse/dictionary
Gather as much information as you can today. Over the next two days you will use this to create a detailed report about the creature in Marshmallow.
As you all did so well with your four times tables on Friday, today we are going to use this information for division. Watch the video and pause when it instructs you to complete some working out. When you have finished, complete the worksheet.
I would like you to read the information about Stone Henge, this will also help you with your history task today. When you have read the information, answer the questions carefully.
Today, you are going to find out everything you can about Stone Henge. I would like you to use all of your research to create a visitors guide. This should be created to look like a booklet so people visiting the historical site could find out lots of interesting facts. You should also include some pictures to make it more interesting for them to look at.
This website is a great place to start gathering information but feel free to research elsewhere too.
I have assigned you some tasks to complete on Mathletics which use your 3, 4 and 8 times tables. I have also set your Rockstars to the 4 times tables this week and 8 times tables next week. This means you can get lots of extra practice.
I look forward to receiving your work.
