Welcome back Class Three. I hope you have had a good, if unusual, Easter Break! Did you have a go at any of Mrs Acheson's challenges? I hope you were more successful than me if you did. Below is a picture of how I am currently feeling after eating my eggs!

Right back to it... We have lots of lovely learning for you to get your teeth into this week get those brain cells out of their chocolate haze! Remember if you would like to send us pictures or files then please use our new class email address: class3@gfschools.co.uk  This will help us to see your work quicker and reply more easily to you. Alternatively, if you need to just send us a message purple mash email is quick and easy too!

Spellings

This week practise 5 -10 of the Year 3/4  Common Exception Words. (You can use your workbook for this.) After having some practice using the usual look - cover - write - check approach, then try out some of the spelling games we use in school - battleships, invisible man, squares or you could try our new game that you learned before the holidays! 

If you want a game of battleships I have uploaded a copy here. 


 













 

 Reading

Please read for 30 minutes from your current AR home reading book. Remember when you finish and are ready to quiz you can access AR at home using the link we gave out.  I have reset your points and set you a new points target.  I will be keeping an eye on your progress and give you a big shout as you get closer!

Remember reading is the key to understanding our world so enjoy the time to do more of it! 



Maths
 If you haven't already, you will need to go to your Purple Mash Email to find some login details for a new website that we are using, called Mymaths. Using this website, we will be able to set you homework tasks as well as giving you lessons to work through.  Today your task is simply to watch the video below with a parent or guardian, to learn about the new site, then log in using the details Miss Vetch sent you. You might want also to investigate some of the games there! 

Watch the video here!


Handwriting

Use Google - or another suitable search engine - to find a poem about April. Choose one that you enjoy reading and has ideas that you can relate to.  In your workbook copy out the poem carefully practicing your best handwriting. Take your time and remember to use the correct joins. I have included your handwriting families as a reminder! If you have time, you could illustrate your poem to match its words and themes. (Please send me a picture to see your beautiful writing!)

 Learning Project: Viewpoints

The project this week aims to provide opportunities for you to learn more about different viewpoints. Learning may focus on physical viewpoints in terms of what you can see outside of the window at home, what others can see looking into your home and then progress onto personal viewpoints and of others. 
 
 
Explore any of the ideas below and see where the activity takes you. The ideas below are only a starting point really. See what interests you and enjoy exploring this topic!




Let’s Wonder: 

Draw a picture of yourself and label the drawing with the qualities you have. How do others see you differently? Ask people at home to add to their qualities. How are you different from other children in different parts of the world?  What makes you similar to other children around the world? 

Let’s Create:  
 
Complete an observational drawing of what they see outside a window in their house. Then get out into the garden and find natural forms such as stones, leaves, flowers and animals. Complete sketches, showing an awareness of different viewpoints of the same object. Remember to concentrate on tone and shading. 

Be Active: 
 
Move around your home and garden taking photographs from different viewpoints. Which photos do you like? Do the people you live with like the same photos as you? Why? Why not? 
 
Time to Talk:  
 
Talk about keeping safe, discuss different ways to keep safe. Basic hygiene rules, road safety, internet safety, water safety, being safe around the home, stranger danger. How do different people view this?  After chatting about these ideas choose one to create a information leaflet or poster to help younger children know the rules. 
 
Understanding Others and Appreciating Differences: 
 
Listen to different pieces of music from around the world, which styles of music do you prefer and why? ​Music​ Maybe you could learn a 
song by heart and perform it. Send us a video into class3@gfschools.co.uk
 
Reflect: 
 
Design your own ideal world. Would your world contain the same things as other people? Which things are most important to you? What are you going to include? 


Enjoy your day! I look forward to seeing what you get up to. Remember to email any work or pictures to class3@gfschools.co.uk!
