Once again, a very big well done to year 3 for being so amazing despite the circumstances. Many thanks to parents as well who actively engaged with home learning to ensure that children’s learning continued. It would not have been possible without your support.

Our grammar focus this week is subordinate clause.
Look at the first example: Like a bullet speeding through the air, he ran through the door.
he ran through the door – makes sense on its own, so it is the main clause.
Like a bullet speeding through the air – does not make sense on its own but has to depend on the other part to make sense, so it is a subordinate clause.
Watch the following links to learn more about the subordinate clause. In the 2nd video, they have used the word ‘independent clause’ for the mainclause and ‘dependent clause‘ for the subordinate clause:
Sophia – Fantastic maths work! I love your rainbow, one of the transition activities. 🙂
Lewis – Aww, what an amazing video! I loved it, you’ve been such a star! 🙂 I am impressed with all the learning that you’ve done over the past few weeks. You should be proud of yourself!! Keep it up, Lewis. A big thanks to mum as well for all her efforts.
The scuttling noise had disturbed Michael, and he’d shot bolt upright in bed. After taking a deep breath, he flung himself onto the smooth wooden boards of his bedroom floor and took a peek…

PSHE – Transition
We still can’t believe that this is your last week in year 3! We know that you all are very excited about year 4. We wish you all the very best! Here are some activities we would like you to have a go at. You could do these and let your new teacher know a bit about yourself!
Have fun learning. 🙂 Remember to share your work with us on seesaw.
Think about what the thing under the bed might be.
Can you describe the sounds it might be making underneath the bed without revealing to the reader what it is?
These sentences are ‘sick’ and need your help to get better. Can you help?
Michael heard a noise.
He felt scared.
He sat up in bed.
He went to the floor.
He looked under the bed.
Geography: Sketch map
. What key features should every sketch map have?
A sketch map should have:
•a north arrow;
•simple line drawings with very little detail;
•labels and annotations (if needed).
You should also state that the map is not drawn to scale!
The one on the left is a picture of River Elbe and the one on the right is a sketch map of the same river. See if you can spot all the features of a sketch map in it…does it have a title, does it say, not to scale, does it have a key?
Activity: Your task is to design your own ‘fantasy city’ sketch map. Think of all the features that are important to remember while sketching a map. Remember to share your learning on seesaw.
Below is the sports challenge for this week. You might want to have a go at this on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday when Joe Wicks isn’t doing one of his live lessons. If you have a go, don’t forget to post about your achievements on Seesaw!
Answer the following questions after reading the text above carefully:
Art – David Hockney
Who is David Hockney?
David Hockney is one of the most important painters of the 20th century. If you were to Google, famous British painters, there’s a good chance that Hockney’s name will appear. Born in Bradford in 1937, Hockney was one of the big artists involved in the pop art movement in the 1960s. Pop art was a style of art that was bright, full of colour. It was made by lots of young artists who felt that the art they saw in galleries was a little bit boring.
What does he like to paint?
Hockney lives in London, but owns two other homes in California. You can imagine then that a lot of his work varies, because California and the UK are very different places. California is usually always sunny, where as in England the weather changes all the time. So, when painting in England,Hockney likes to paint the seasons. In Going Up Garrowby Hill, Hockney has painted a canvas of the landscape in Yorkshire, where he was brought up.
When in California, his paintings are colourful and bold. In A Bigger Splash, Hockney paints a swimming pool. It looks like someone has just jumped into the water. The blue is so bright that you want to get on the diving board and jump in too. And look at how tall those palm trees are! You won’t find palm trees like that in England.
Does he like painting people?
Yes! Lots of Hockney’s work involves painting people he loves. This is usually pairs of people. My Parentsis a painting of his mum and dad and is probably one of his most famous. Look at how he illustrates their personalities. His mother sits upright and attentive, while his father is absorbed in his paper and seems a little bit on the edge of his seat. It’s like Hockney has captured how he feels about his parents in a painting that will last forever.
So, where is Hockney today?
Hockney is still painting and trying lots of new experiments with art. Some of his most recent work includes painting on iPads. The great thing about iPads is that once the work has been complete, you can go back and see how the painting was created. It’s like rewinding time. Isn’t that incredible?
n the 1970s and 1980s Hockney began to use photographs in a very different way. In compositions such as Nathan Swimming 1982 he assembled groups of photographs to form larger compositions that explored multiple viewpoints. In these works we again see Hockney exploring the possibilities of picture making and experimenting with ways of capturing space, time and movement in still, two-dimensional images.
You are going to create Hockney inspired collage of a picture you click. It could be a picture of a person or a building. Download the picture onto your desktop/laptop if possible. Then, arrange the picture in different ways, try to put it at different angles, experiment with its colours, put the same picture in black and white too and see how it looks! Remember to post it on seesaw!
Enjoy your learning today. Please remember to put your work on seesaw. 🙂
