Home learning pack 13/7/20 – 17/7/20

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.

English – Creative writing

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™‚

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™‚

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™‚
