The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.'
Good morning Year 3,
Alice said it was wonderful to see a few of you yesterday at the Year 3 Book Swap!
What book are you reading at the moment? Would you recommend it?
Did you know that reading has an important impact on your mental well being! Getting lost inside a book can sometimes help you if you need something to distract you from your sad thoughts and make you feel calmer.
Books can also help you relate to others and boost your empathy. Non fiction books about emotions could support you with understanding how you feel. In fiction books you may relate to a character or a storyline - you could think 'I feel like this character' or ...' This happened to me' and sometimes this can give you support.
I remember as a child when my parents parted that I read 'The Suitcase Kid' lots of times because I felt like I really understood the character and she was just like me! It helped me lots.
Reading lots of books can also boost your emotional literacy! If you can read and write well you can better express your emotions.
On Purple Mash I want you to tell me what your FAVOURITE book is and why!
So lets see what today's learning is....
Your first activity it to use some of your creative storytelling skills by using your a story map to retell the story to someone else!
You could line up your teddies, tell someone in your house, of even Facetime a relative to share this story with them!
You could get a grown up to film you and you can send it in to us so we can see too! Use your storymap that you have created so far to guide you.
Yesterday you wrote the first part of the story up until the part where the old man wakes up from his beautiful dream about the luscious green jungle! Alice would like you to write the next part of the story.
This her example below...
'Early one morning the old man noticed something in the dreary land- an old light bulb that still worked.An idea began to blossom in his mind. The old man built his own forest out of all the things that no one wanted. As he worked his home made forest grew bigger and bigger. It was made of litter and tin. It might not have been the jungle in his dreams but it made him smile just as much.'
Today we will continue with the revision of the subtraction method.
We are moving on to step 25 today.
52- 30 =
37 - 10 =

much money could I have left?
Shh.. Shall I tell you a secret?
Tomorrow it is National Thank A Teacher Day!
I am sure you will want to create something for your lovely teachers - so on purple mash, or at home on some paper then take a photo and send it it in...why not create something beautiful for a teacher that is as special to you!
Take care! Have a wonderful day.
