Morning Year 3!
It is Mental Health Awareness Week and yesterday Emily asked you to tell us your favourite book. Reading is such a good way to relax and exercise your mind. The theme this year is kindess- I want you to try and do something kind for someone today. Kindness doesn't have to be buying things for someone- there are many little kindnesses that you can do. Helping with the washing up, asking some if they are ok, asking someone if they have had a good day. Good luck in your mission!
To kick off here is a message from a company called Liveable streets Bethnal Green::
Dear Virginia pupils,
We need your help!! In conjunction with Liveable Streets Bethnal Green, we would like you to make a short video to say what you are looking forward to when changes are made in the area.
This could be centred around one of the following themes:
Your videos will be uploaded to the Liveable Streets website
Your videos must be no longer than 30 seconds. Please send all videos to :
firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 27th May
We are starting a new book today! 'The Ice- Cream Villian'. Before you start reading - what do you think the story will be about? What is an ice cream? Do you like them? What is a villian? Make a prediction in your homework book:
I predict that the story will be about a villain who is made of ice cream and steals the whole world's ice cream because she wants to live forever.
Once you have done that you can read the first chapter- answer the quiz questions and have a go at the ice cream menu activity.
One last challenge - choose three of the underlined words in the text and write your own sentences with them.
Who did you tell the story to? I would love to see pictures or videos of you retelling the story to someone! Send them to email@example.com.
Your first task is to read back the first part of the story that you wrote yesterday - read it out loud. Do the sentences make sense ? Have you used capital letters at the beginning of your sentences and do you have full stops at the end of your sentences? Have you used ambitious vocabulary?
Once you are happy with what you have written so far you move onto the next task which is to write the next part of the story. Up until the point where the old man makes a wish. Take your time writing this- don't rush and make sure you read every sentence back after you have finished it.
After a few days a wild wind began to blow and a minute bird with a bright yellow beak drifted into the forest made from tin. While having lunch that afternoon the old man noticed the beautiful bird and his heart leapt with joy. Kindly the man threw the bird some of his crumbs from his sandwich. As quick as a flash the bird had eaten all of the crumbs. The bird flew into the sky and landed on a tin tree branch- it began to sing a
song. Early the next morning the man walked through the forest to look for the intriguing animal but it was nowhere to be found.
For the rest of that day the man wondered around the forest listening for the birds harmonious cal but all he could hear was silence. His heart ached with loneliness. His joy had turned to despair-he felt that he would never be happy again.
That night the man sat with his cat who was made of the tin that no one wanted and stared at the large moon and made a special wish. He wished that the lovely bird would come back so that he could hear its serene song once again and fill the hole he had in his heart.
Yesterday you had a go at step 25 of the subtraction skills- here is a video showing you the method for workign out the number sentences and the missing number problem.
We will continue to practice this step today as it has lots of steps. if it helps to draw the numbers in dienes it can help you to visualise the numbers.
Have a go at these number sentences :
53 - 30 =
56- 20 =
47 - 20 =
75 - 40 =
82 - 30 =
39 - ? = 19
