Class 3 Tuesday 21st April

20 Apr 2020

Good Morning Class Three! I am feeling inspired by our beautiful sunny weather this week so let's see if we can take our learning outside a bit today.

Yesterday I was really impressed by your handwriting! I have included a selection below for you to have a look. When you are working in your home books, always try to think carefully about presentation and handwriting, taking pride in your work just as you would at school! (But you can always use a much more interesting choice of colours and illustrations in your home learning!)



Now onto today! 


Time to get outside! Please take some water and some kind of paintbrush or sponge. With your water and sponge ‘write’ the 5- 10 spellings you have chosen to learn this week. See if you can write them all out before the first one starts to evaporate and disappear! If you get a chance, I would love to see pictures.  (If you find this way impossible find a different way of practicing your spellings outside – it might be sounding them out loud whilst jumping on your trampoline or writing them in sticks and pebbles. Any way will be fine; as long as it is outside!)




A big well done to:  Matilda, Max D, Hannah, William, Chloe E, Eliza St and Katie W for already completing quizzes and making some great progress towards their AR targets! (They all scored 80% and above too!)

I would like everyone to read for 30 minutes again today from your current AR home reading book. If you can, try and read outside! It is so lovely to top up with Vitamin D at any chance!  Remember when you finish your books and are ready to quiz you can access AR at home using the link we gave out. 

I am currently sharing a book with Sophie called, The Boy at the Back of the Class and I am also reading Running Wild by Michael Morpurgo. Both are great books and I would recommend trying them! 

Login to MyMaths and complete the homework task set for you. I look forward to seeing how you get on! It is a bit of a revision lesson which you will hopefully whizz through, but remember the lesson is there to help if you need it.

Also, have a go at TT rock stars today and complete 15 minutes of times tables practice please.

Working outside if possible, so you can be inspired by nature around you! Write your own April poem. You can use some of the structure and ideas from the poem you copied yesterday or you could use a different style of poetry such as haiku, shape, acrostic or rhyming.

Some questions to help you think: What is April to you? What do we see in April? What is happening? Who is there? How do you feel in April? .

I have set this as a ToDo in Purple Mash, but please feel free to write it in your book or on word or Powerpoint if you would prefer to and then send it to our class email :

 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 an 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
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? 

So how much of your learning have you managed to complete outside? Lots I hope! Remember to email any work or pictures to . (Also remember to give your Mums and Dads and grown ups a big hug today and say thank you to them for their support and help today!)

Missing you all lots. Look forward to seeing your pictures and work.
