Message in a bottle

Sentence challenge!

Can you think of adjectives to describe the water and how the bottle feels in his hand?

Can you describe how the boy might be feeling? Can you describe the letter inside the bottle?

Story starter!

He looked back at the scene behind him. He just couldn’t believe what had happened! How could it ever have come to this?

He clutched the cold bottle in his fingertips, ready to launch it into the waves. The message rolled up inside it was his last chance. Hopefully the current would take it far away from this place. This place where all his dreams lay in ruins.

He prayed someone would find it. He prayed someone would come before it was too late…

Continue the story or write your own based on the picture…

PSHE: Transition

Since you only have a few more days left in year 3, so as a part of transition, we would want you to look back and reflect at your time spent in year 3.

Have a go at these activities and reflect on your time in year 3

Have fun learning! πŸ™‚

Lewis – Great handwriting and number in words practise! Well done for your maths work on different types of lines and work on graphs.

Tom – Great answers to question time and good effort at transforming the sick sentences.

Igor – Well done for your answers to question time, fantastic transformation of sick sentences! Brilliant maths work today and great job at going over your maths from yesterday and making all the corrections. Well done for your spellings practise! It was supposed to be a poster, Igor, but your presentation on sun safety was super impressive! I will let you get away with it as you still practised your computing skills! πŸ™‚

Natalie – Well done for your maths and English work. I still think that you could transform the last 2 sick sentences even more…and do not forget to add a full stop at the end of your sentences.

Ella-Rose – Well done for your answers to question time, lovely transformation of sick sentences and what a fabulous scroll you’ve made! Well done, Ella. πŸ™‚ Well done for your maths work too. Lovely rock painting!

Sophia – Great maths work and English story. Try not to give a sub heading to different parts of your story, I mean do not write ‘The problem’, ‘The steal’ etc

David – Well done for your maths work today. Please go over Q 8 again. Lovely English work, especially the changes you’ve made to the sick sentences. Fantastic poster on sun safety!

Isaac – Great maths work! Yay! Well done for completing your 7 times table in under 2 minutes, your next target times table is 9. Well done for your grammar and spellings practise.

Demi – So good to see your posts on seesaw! You have done great work in maths, English and spellings. It was also great to see you enjoying reading. I look forward to seeing more of your amazing work on seesaw. πŸ™‚

Freya – What a lovely sun safety poster! You made some fantastic changes to those sick sentences! Just a few things… you put ‘an’ before a word that starts with a vowel or makes a vowel sound and past tense of ‘keep’ is ‘kept’. Well done for your maths work too. Please go over Q 8 again for me.

Well done for all your hard work today, children. We are very proud of you all. πŸ™‚

Looking forward to seeing you all on zoom tomorrow!

Message in a bottle

Look at the picture above carefully and have a go at the following activities:

Question time!

  1. What do you think the boy is afraid of?
  2. What has just happened that is causing him to turn around?
  3. What is he looking at?
  4. Who does he hope will come and help him?
  5. What might the note say?
  6. How did the chair come to be in the ocean?
  7. Why do you think he is dressed in such a fashion?

Sick sentences!

These sentences are β€˜sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

  • The boy held the bottle in his hand.
  • The water felt wet.
  • Clouds were gathering

Perfect picture!

Can you make the scroll inside the bottle?

Think carefully about the type of paper it is made from, and what might be written on it.

Computing:

Today we would love you to practice your skills by creating a poster using either Microsoft word (if you have a windows computer), Pages (if you have an apple computer) or you could try out the free version of the app β€˜Book Creatorβ€˜ if you don’t have access to the others.

Your task is to create a poster about sun safety/ How to stay safe in the sun!

Here are your challenges when creating your poster:

1. Create an eye catching title for your poster. (Can you choose an interesting font? Are you going to underline your title or put in in bold? What colour will you choose?)

2. Find few photos on the internet that you can copy and paste onto your poster.

3. Find some important information such as: Why is it important to stay safe in the sun? What are the various things one can do to stay safe? Is it harmful for eyes too? How to best protect the eyes?

4. Decide how to arrange your facts on your poster to create an easy-to-read layout. Are you going to use bullet points? Are you going to put each fact in a box or other shape? How can you make you poster something people will want to read?

We look forward to seeing your work!
