Class 3 Wednesday 17th March

Good morning everyone!

I hope you had a lovely day yesterday and managed to get outside at some point and enjoyed the sunshine. 

I found out that the baby blackbird chicks that had been living in my hedge had grown up and learned to fly so I was watching them flap around the garden.

Thanks for all of the brilliant work from yesterday, the task you did on contractions was really good. 

Slide Show 



Before we begin I've got a quick message to pass on from Mrs Lewis about your AR scores. 

"Please pass on my congratulations to Chloe E, Chloe H, Matilda, Max J and Harriet who have been reading lots and have managed to reach their AR targets already, just 2 weeks into the half term. Whilst Max D, William T, and Jacob W have also made a great start and are well on their way!

If children are running out of books, they can look on the enrichment page for ideas or if they contact us I can arrange a book swap in school for them, where they can return old books and take a pack of new books within their ZPD. "

Collective Worship
Let's join Mrs Acheson today for 
Collective Worship.  We're all missing being together, but this is something that everybody can share, even if we're not all in school.   
Look on the News Page for this picture, to join in with today's Collective Worship.


For you maths today please log on to my maths and then complete the activity on there. You have been getting some cracking scores you clever people, I'm very impressed!!!!

Reading task:                                                                                                                                     
I would still like you to read for 30 minutes please. Ideally, I would like you to read your school reading book or a book that is similar in difficulty. However, if you choose to read something else then that's ok too. As long as you're reading, I'm happy. smiley


Don't forget to keep working on your spellings. yes



I've loved getting to know more about you all and what your favourite sports are and who your heroes are. Now I'd like to find out a bit more about your favourite sport too. 

For this task I would like you tell me all about your favourite sport and design a poster about it. There are some questions below that might help you. I've been amazed by how clever you are at presenting your work so if you want to type it or use PowerPoint or Publisher or any other way then that is fine. Of course, if you want to just use a pencil and paper then that is fine too. 

This can be any outside or sporty activity so there are lots to choose from. It could be horse riding, football, bmx racing, motor cross, F1 , sumo wrestling, unicycle mountain racing or even mountain climbing and ironing (you don't believe the last two are real, do you? Check out the pictures below!). 

You might not know this but I used to be a good tap dancer! Sadly I had to give it up when I fell in the sink and hurt my knee.

What is your favourite sport? 
Who are the famous people or teams involved in it?

Is it a team game? 
Are there any famous places or arenas that are linked to your sport
Do you need special equipment or clothing and can you draw them and explain what they are for?
Are there any special skills or tricks , and can you explain how to do them.

Topic work

The project this week aims to provide opportunities for you to learn more about sports and games. Learning may focus on the history of sport, sporting-heroes, physical challenges and performance. 

 ● Our Sport Heroes- ​How many famous sports people can your child name? Ask them to choose a sports person and research online about them. Can they find out how and when they started their career, or any other interesting facts about them? Encourage your child to create a timeline that details all of the achievements of their sporting hero.  

 ● Tissue Paper Sports Logo -  ​Ask your child to use scrunched up tissue and paint to recreate the logo for their favourite sport team or design and create their own sport logo, perhaps for their school team. Your child could sketch this with pencils as an alternative.


 ● Super Movers! - ​Encourage your child to take part in this football themed ​Super Movers​! There are two levels - Super Movers are a great way to keep active and have fun! Try ​Go Noodle​ and dance along to one of their routines - there’s plenty to choose from and the whole family can join in! Your child could design a poster encouraging others to take part in sporting activities. Ask them how they would persuade others to join in. What type of words could they use? ​


 ● Sharing Sport Interests - ​Encourage your child to ask different family members about their favourite sports and any sports they took part in growing up - were they a part of any clubs? Did they take part in any competitions? Did they win any trophies? They might find out something new about their family members! Following this, can your child use the information to write a newspaper report recounting one the memorable events? They could include quotes from the interview. 

 ● Powerful Paralympians - ​ ​You could explore diversity in sport with your child. Ask your child to find out about the Paralympic games and famous paralympians such as ​Ellie Simmonds​. How have these people overcome challenges to represent their country in their chosen sport? They could write a letter/email to a chosen athlete and ask them questions about their sporting journey. Or they could draw a detailed sketch of the athlete during a winning moment. 

I hope you have a lots of fun with the sporty topic work, 

Mr G
