Good Morning Class Three, I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter break with your families. I know I have eaten far too much chocolate!! I hope you have all been able to spend some time in outside in the beautiful sunshine and I am looking forward to hearing all about the things you have been doing.

These are your tasks for today. Please remember that if you don't get all the tasks done each day then that is absolutely fine. Some tasks will take longer than others and if you're really enjoying a task, you may choose to spend longer on that than others which I'm perfectly happy with so please don't worry 😊.

Maths
Well done to those of you who managed to get onto MyMaths and have a go at the online tasks that Mrs Lewis set yesterday. I have set some more for you to have a go at today. See how you get on.

SPaG
Instead of a Purple Mash writing task today, I would like you instead to have a go at the below SPaG worksheets. There is a separate worksheet for year 3 and year 4. Remember to take extra special care over your presentation and handwriting.

Year 3: https://grantleyfountainsnyorkssch-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/g/personal/svetch_gfschools_co_uk/EfOHNtxG1MFGsmQHzlPV18EByPOnF5ZRz2laXnols67R1Q?e=ShLhgB


Year 4: https://grantleyfountainsnyorkssch-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/g/personal/svetch_gfschools_co_uk/EQcDgdl40zxFpyAlNgSdFhQB-TEuwRH6EUBOP6S7uvnjKA?e=9jtej9

Some people have had trouble with these links, I think I have managed to fix them so try pressing refresh / reloading the page, if it didn't work for you. If it still doesn't work then please email class3@gfschools.co.uk

Reading
A massive well done to those of you who have received postcards for having achieved your AR targets and a big well done to those of you who are still completing quizzes and achieving higher than 80% 😊. I will be having a look later on to see how everyone is getting on.

Spellings
Choose another ten words, from the year 3 and 4 common exception word list and have a go at writing them backwards (either in your books or outside, if the weather is nice) – it’s harder than it seems.


Charanga Music
I have set you all up with usernames and passwords for Charang, hopefully you will have had chance to have a little explore of the site. I have set a lesson for you to have a go at. When you log on, if you click onto ‘My Workspace’, you should see the lesson come up. It is called:
Lesson 1 – Lean on me.
I would like you to click on the first activity, which is called ‘Listen and Appraise’. If you then click play, it will play the song and I would like you to listen to the song and then answer the following 4 questions in your workbooks:
  1. Do you like the song?
If yes, why?
If no, why?
  1. What instruments can you hear?
  2. What is the style of this music?
  3. How is the song put together?
A little extra…
In keeping with our ‘anonymous friend’ activities that we were doing before school broke up, I thought it would be a lovely thing if we carried them on at home. Now, we can’t do it in the quite the same way as we did at school so rather than being ‘anonymous friends’, I thought we could do ‘kindness tasks’ at home.
For example it could be: tidying a room, leaving a thank you note to mums and dads, making a sibling a snack, giving someone at home a hug……

 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 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? 

I hope you have enjoyed todays activities, I look forward to seeing / hearing all about them. I hope you are all keeping well and looking after your Mums, Dads and brothers / sisters.
Take care, keep safe and remember to get some fresh air and exercise!
Missing you all 😊 😊
Miss Vetch
