Good Morning Year 3,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Myself and Mrs O’Beirne were having a chat on Friday about what we missed about not being at school (there were so many things!) but one of the big things was our time sharing a book with you. So we thought that we would have a class book, and we have chosen:

 

Each day, you will be completing a reading comprehension task based on “The Hodgeheg”. Myself and Mrs O’Beirne will be reading a chapter each to you and there is also a copy of the chapter in the documents section (please do not print out the whole book- it is very long!) You can use this text to help answer the questions. Hopefully we’ll all enjoy sharing this book together!

 I hope you all watched Friday’s Daily briefing (and enjoyed my first time filming it!) and heard my cheer when we were announced as the TT Rockstars Winners!!! A MASSIVE congratulations to all of you for working so hard throughout the week to get such a high number of coins collected- 226,442. An extra well done to Kevin Wiley – 39,750 Jojo Santana – 26,145 Tommy Bullet – 24,739 for their very incredible coins collected totals!

Good morning Year 3,

WOW what an incredible Gade Valley Got's Talent video! Make sure that you watch it. I was so amazed at everyone’s talents especially Year 3. What a talented class you are, and hopefully when we get back to school we can teach each other our new skills that we have been working on!

I am sure that you have all heard of the incredible hero, Captain Tom Moore. He has raised millions of pounds for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday. It really is an incredible story! Today is his 100th Birthday, so Happy Birthday Captain Tom Moore (Wow what a birthday to celebrate!)

In yesterday's  Gade Valley Daily Briefing  , Mr Barron talked about having a 'glass half full' attitude and how important it is to be positive and optimistic. It has been really lovely to hear how well you are coping in this strange time. Sometimes we have down days, and I just wanted to remind you all how proud I am of everything you are doing! You are all incredible and I am truly inspired everyday by you and the brilliant things that you achieve every day. Your parents have been so wonderful to help and support you with all of your learning, I cannot thank them enough. The ways that you are showing your CHAMP skills in everything that you do and how you have all developed such a positive growth mindset- you are truly amazing!

We have our next battle on TT Rockstars against Year 5 today- let's see if we can win 3 out of 3! Remember to login between 10:00am and 11:00am!

English:

Your work today  is on- Apostrophes 

You can use apostrophes to show that you have omitted (left out) some letters when you are joining words together. For example, you can join the words ‘you’ and ‘are’ together. You + are = you're. The apostrophe takes the place of the removed letters. In this example, the letter a. Sometimes, however, you need to rearrange the letters a bit when you contract the words. For example: will + not = won't.  Click here for a link to BBC bitesize

TT Rockstars:

It's a big week on TT Rockstars this week for us Year 3. We are in a battle with Year 2! The battle will commence at 9am on Monday morning and finish at 7pm on Thursday.  At the moment Year 2 are winning in the Battle of the Bands (we are close than yesterday though), so we need a really big effort from everyone to win this weeks Battle- Good Luck!

 

PE: 

I would like you to continue to take part in Joe Wick's PE session at 9:00 am, it lasts for 30 minutes.   

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ 

 

Maths:

You are practising your work on adding and subtracting Fractions (see attached sheet)

Challenge 1: Column A all questions

Challenge 2: Column B all questions

Challenge 3: Column C all questions

Remember: The top number is the numerator and the bottom number is the denominator (how many parts the whole amount is split into). 

Miss Kavanagh's Top Tip: When adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator, the denominator does not change only the numerator does! e.g. 3/7 + 2/7 = 5/7,  8/10 - 5/10 = 3/10

Numbot:

Please continue to play this game for at least 5 minutes, I hope you are enjoying it!

 

History/Art/D&T: 

Your challenge is to create a 3D Viking Longship. In the attached documents is a template if you would like to use that and images of other 3D Viking Longships (you don't have to make it out of paper!) Be creative as you can- this is your afternoon work for Wednesday and Thursday- so you have time to decorate it. I would really like to see pictures of your finished models- Good Luck and have fun making it!
