Yesterday’s shout outs…

A big shout out to Ella-Rose for her lovely English and maths work. In maths, for Q 8 b, you had to work out the perimeter. Perimeter is the total distance all the way around the outside of a 2D shape. To work out the perimeter, add up the lengths of all the sides. Have another go now and I am certain you’ll get it right. 🙂

Well done to Sophia too, for her amazing work on equivalent fraction and English comprehension. 🙂

Geography: compare (similarities and differences) between Chelmsford and Berlin

In today’s lesson, you are going to remind yourselves of all the human and physical features of Chelmsford and Berlin that you’ve been learning about over the past few weeks. Physical features are natural features like rivers, mountains etc and human features are all the man-made features.

You can also compare Chelmsford and Berlin by their size, location and other things. You can also mention if they are in different/same continents, same/different countries, which of the 2 is bigger in size, which of the two might have more population etc.

Take a look at the links given below to help you remind of some of the facts.



Once you have identified the differences and similarities, record them in the grid given below.

We hope you enjoy your learning. Please remember to upload your amazing work on seesaw. 🙂

A slight error in today’s English 29/6/20

Hello year 3,

I have noticed that there is a slight mistake in one of the spelling activities.

The above sentence should have ‘younger‘ as the correct answer but that is not one of your weekly words, it is young. So here is another sentence for you to do instead. Choose an appropriate word from your 10 weekly spelling words.

My ________________ is two years younger than me.

German from Frau Lees:

Year 3 and 4 

Hello Everyone,

I was so impressed by your German work last week. Well done! 

This week we are learning about how to pronounce “ei” and “ie”in German. 

Here is a counting rhyme to practise this and the meaning in English. (It doesn’t rhyme in English) You will already know a lot of the words.

Eins, zwei, Papagei

Drei, vier, Faultier

Fünf, sechs, Eidechs’

Sieben, acht, Gute Nacht

Neun, zehn, Auf Wiedersehen. 

Meaning in English

One, two, parrot

Three, four, sloth

Five, six, lizard

Seven, eight, good night

Nine, ten, goodbye.

  1. Watch my video here to hear the rhyme and see how the rule for “ei” and “ie” works: When the i and the e go walking, the second one does talking video by MAJB Lees

2. Practise saying the rhyme out loud along with the video.

3. If you can, record yourself saying the rhyme and send in your video on Seesaw.

4. Next, carefully copy out the poem in German, taking care over the capital letters and umlauts.

5. Underline in one colour all the words with “ei”.

6. Use another colour to underline all the words with “ie”. 

7. Illustrate the poem to show what it means. I look forward to seeing your finished work on Seesaw.

Viel Spaß! Have fun!

Frau Lees

We hope you have fun learning! Please remember to share your work with us on seesaw.

Home learning pack 29/6/20 – 3/7/20

Here is the weekly home learning pack for this week.

The majority of the content is the same as the daily blogs but adapted slightly to avoid the need for external websites.

We are aware that moving from one link to another can be time-consuming for some so by uploading a week’s worth of learning we hope we can provide further support to those families who would prefer this method.
