Class 3 Wednesday 10th June

09 Jun 2020

Hi everyone, it is Mr Gamble again. I'll be doing both websites all week this week too.

I hope you enjoyed your animal themed work yesterday. All this talking about animals reminds me of my dad because he used to work in a zoo. His job was to clean the leopards and by the time he'd finished they were spotless! 



As always thank you very much for the excellent work you have sent in, the animal fact posters in particular were amazing. I loved the poems you made and we had some very imaginative time tables too (we had everything from teaching tricks to monkeys to snuggling down for a sleep with some elephants which was brilliant). 

Slide Show 



 Today I would like you to go on the mymaths website and complete the task that I have set on there for you. This is my first time setting up mymaths so fingers crossed it all works ok. Mrs Lewis has told me all about it so hopefully everything will be ok. I'll log on later to see how you have got on.  You will be doing a bit of work on time.

I bet you can guess the first two things I'm going to say can't you? Yep, please do your 30 minutes of reading and then work on your spellings again. I've been trying to keep up with the topic work too so I've been reading a great book about snakes by Anna Conda. 


For our writing task we are going to look at yet another area of poetry writing - kennings.
Kennings are riddles that are written in the form of poems and they were made up by the Vikings. The aim is to try to see if the reader can guess what you are writing about by giving little clues. 

Have a look at the one below and see what you think.


It does give it away a bit with the picure doesn't it. wink
I'm sure you get the idea though. You need to think very carefully about how your creature looks and act, and then describe it using pairs of words. 

The poster below tells you a bit more. 


Below is a slideshow to give you a few ideas how to make a kenning, and there is a PowerPoint to have a look at (I've put the main points in the slideshow so don't worry if you don't have PowerPoint). 

  -Kennings Teaching Powerpoint-V297897594.ppt-  

Slide Show 

If you remember the aim of a kenning is to describe the thing you have chosen to write about so that the reader can guess what is it. I've put some more examples below for you to have a look at. Once you have done that I would like you to choose an animal and see if you can create a kenning about it and I'll see if I can guess what you have chosen.

Learning Project - to be done throughout the week

The project work this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about the world’s rainforests. Learning may focus on the plants, animals and insects that inhabit the rainforest, food that originates there and weather patterns. It could look at plants and animals that can be found in the garden too. 

 ● Amazing Animals-​ ​Ask your child to think about the following: How many different types of animals live in rainforests? Can they name any? What is their diet like? How do they hunt for their prey or hide from predators? Look at these ​11 amazing rainforest animals​. Encourage your child to choose one of the animals and create a poster all about them. 

 ● Layers of the Rainforest-​ Take a look at ​this​ information with your child, all about the layers of the rainforest.​ ​Ask your child to try creating their own diagram showing the layers of the rainforest and the animals you can find in each layer. Your child could cut and stick pictures, paint or draw!​ ​Can your child categorise the animals? 

 ● Roar!-​ Have a go at ​this​ forest themed GoNoodle! Finished? Ask your child to try making up their own rainforest-themed dance routine to the same song - they could pretend to be a different animal for each dance move! ​Recommendation at least 2 hours of exercise a week.

 ● One Step at a Time- ​Talk to family members about the deforestation of rainforests and think about how we could help by taking small steps at home. This​ article should help get them started! Can your child record their very own advert encouraging people to reduce, reuse, recycle? Encourage them to think about the impact on the environment, animals and their habitats, global warming and the tribes that occupy the rainforests. Alternatively, they could write a jingle about the benefits of recycling and perform this to the family. Share these at ​#TheLearningProjects.

I hope you have a great day, 
Mr G
