Class 3 - Monday 18th May

17 May 2020



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

Our learning project this week is Under the Sea, so this week anytime you spend watching The Blue Planet or Blue Planet 2 on BBC iPlayer is counted as learning time! 

Today we will do the test more like we do at school, so please ask your parents or adults to use this sheet to do your spelling test. It has the words you have been practicing and others that have the same pattern. Remember to let me know what your score is.

You can find this weeks lists in your Purple Mash email inbox. After having some practice using this look - cover - write - check site, then try out some of the spelling games we use in school - battleships, invisible man, squares, letter jumble, or maybe water writing outside.

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

Okay, reading superstars… Keep up the great reading this week. It is the last week you can earn points for this half terms target! Some of you are really, really close! 

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!


Use Google - or another suitable search engine - to find a poem about "under the sea". Choose one that you enjoy reading and has a description that you like.
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!)
 Congratulations to the Girls. You totally beat the boys on Friday! Below are certificates for the three highest-scoring players on both teams, well done to you for your great team efforts.

Year 4: Symmetry 

Please watch this video first to remind you what symmetry is and how to find a line of symmetry in a shape (Or object) . Remember shapes can have more than one line of symmetry - it can be chopped into two and both sides are identical. 

Have a go then at this activity, which asks you to find the lines of symmetry in 2D shapes. (A thin mirror might help you!) The answers are on the 2nd page - Don't peek until you have answered the questions.


If you are getting on well try this more irregular selection of shapes!


Year 3 

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

Then have a play on this game, to remind yourself of the 2D shapes we have been looking at. (Check your answers with your 2D shape mat)

Now challenge yourself to put this learning together with your angles learning from last week to try drawing your own 2D shapes. (HINT remember not all the sides have to be the same length!)


The answers are on page 2 - Don't peek until you have had a go! 

Healthy Body & Healthy Mind.

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.

Have you tried a jigsaw recently? They are strangely addictive! Have a go on your own, or even better work as a family to complete a puzzle together - it is the perfect mindful activity. 



Learning Project:  Under the Sea.

Your learning project this week focuses on life in and around the seas and oceans. Your learning can focus on the strange and wonderful creatures and plants that call the ocean their home. You may also want to think about how humans affect this delicate environment and how you can be part of the solutions. 

As usual, use the ideas below as a starting point but follow your own interests and creative ideas for how you explore this learning. 

● Exploring the Blue Abyss​ 
Can you remember the oceans of the world? Find out about the five different layers of the ocean (Sunlight Zone, Twilight Zone, Midnight Zone, Lower Midnight Zone or Abyss and the Trenches). ​Sea creatures​ adapt incredibly to live in specific layers where the conditions, such as the temperature and light levels, can change. Explore the creatures that are found in each layer of the ocean and create a fact file for each ocean layer with a labeled diagram.

● Submarine Sculptures​ 
Take a look at pictures of real submarines for inspiration and create your own model submarines from different materials found at home e.g. plastic bottles, paint, coloured pencils, string, paper mache, sweet wrappers, tin foil and cardboard. When collecting materials, think about the suitability of each material. Alternatively or in addition, you could design and create a boat to carry a load on the ocean using junk modeling.  
 ● Time to Talk:  Preventing Pollution​ 
Talk to different family members about what they know about plastic waste (e.g. plastic bags, six-pack rings and microbeads) that ends up in the ocean. You could do this by creating a questionnaire and carrying out interviews (perhaps over Facetime with adult supervision?). Discuss how you could help reduce ocean pollution and work together to create a persuasive poster or video to reduce plastic waste​.

 ● Understanding Others and Appreciating Differences: 
Reef Research​ - The Great Barrier Reef is the only living thing which is visible from space! Encourage your child to take a virtual tour of the reef using ​AirPano and create a poster or video to promote the Great Barrier Reef. Remember to use scientific language relating to the habitats and species groups found in the reef. Can you identify the main threats to The Great Barrier Reef and include these too?

 I look forward to seeing your beautiful handwriting today!  Remember you can message anytime on Purple Mash or via our class email! Take care and be kind.
