Good morning Class Three. Happy Monday!  I hope you have had a lovely weekend.

Our learning project this week is Environment. A topic that I know many of you feel strongly about so I look forward to seeing your creativity and ideas in this project.

Spellings
Please test yourself on the 5- 10 spellings that you chose last week and let me know what your score is.
This will be our last week focusing on the Year 3/4 Common Exception Words so please choose the ones you really want to crack!
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, letter jumble or even water writing outside.

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

 

 
 
 Reading

Okay reading superstars… Keep up the great reading this week. Let’s see how many more of our class hit target!

Please read for 30 minutes from your current AR home reading book today and quiz if needed. (Remember to keep those quiz scores at 85% or higher!)

 If you are beginning to get short on AR reading books then don't dismay. Click here to find our guide which signposts where to go to find free, books and texts on AR. You can also find this information in the Enrichment section of the website!
 

Handwriting

Use Google - or another suitable search engine - to find a poem about the new month of May. 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-joined handwriting. Take your time and remember to use the correct joins. I have included your handwriting families here 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!)
 
 
 Maths

Today please start by completing 5 sessions in TT Rock stars.

Now I would like you to complete this Marshmallow Shape challenge.
Using marshmallows and toothpicks (or similar alternatives - playdo /dried spaghetti etc) create as many different 3D shapes as you can. Create the easy ones to start with – like a cube and a triangular prism. Then think about others such as a square-based pyramid and a tetrahedron. How many can you make?
Label the 3D shapes and take a picture to show me your models. Can you create a 3D shape that no-one else has thought to make?  Try and resist eating your marshmallows, because you will need them again tomorrow! 


PE

Being active is so important for a happy body and a happy mind. So make sure you get active today! Have a look at the below link. There are lots of ideas for different PE type activities that you could do at home.

 Learning Project:  The Environment.

Your learning may focus on changes to different environments, the impact of humans on environments, climate change etc. As usual use these ideas as a starting point but follow your own interests and creative ideas for how you explore this learning. 
 



● Let’s Wonder: 
 What is the weather like around the world? Which countries are most likely to have a snowstorm, torrential rain, heatwaves etc Find out about natural disasters such as forest fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, tornados etc. How is climate change having an effect on the weather and natural disasters? 

 ● Let’s Create:   
Using recycled materials design and make a recycling mascot to spread the word about the importance and need to recycle. Think about what it is going to look like? Which materials are they going to use? How are you going to join the materials together? Once completed, remember to evaluate your mascot. What would you do differently next time? Which parts did you find the most challenging and why?  
               
 ● Time to Talk:  
 Discuss environmental issues in the UK. ​Air pollution​, ​climate change​, litter, waste,​ and ​soil contamination​ are all examples of human activity that have an impact in the UK. What are global environmental issues? Various processes that can be said to contribute to the global environmental problems include pollution, global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, depletion of natural resources, overpopulation, waste disposal and deforestation ... These processes have a highly negative impact on our environment. Decide as a family how you could ‘do your bit’ to look after their environment e.g. you could​ set up a recycling station in their home; Paper, plastics and glass. 

 ● Understanding Others and Appreciating Differences: 
 Throughout our lives, culture and experience shapes worldviews, children growing up in the Netherlands, for example, have a much different understanding of the role of water in their lives than their peers in the Sahara Desert. The difference between the abundance and scarcity of water in each of these physical environments affects every aspect of their respective cultures, including the global perceptions they will carry with them throughout their lives.
Think about food. How do you think people view food in the UK compared to those living in Ethiopia for example? Research a country where food and water are scarce. Find out about charities that help people in need, ​Red cross​, ​Christain Aid​, ​Islamic Relief​ or other charities that are significant to you.


 
 I look forward to seeing some of your fantastic shapes and environmental work! Remember you can message anytime on Purple Mash or via our class email!
