Hi Year 3!

Hope you’re all well and still smiling!


Thank you for sending your pictures on PurpleMash for the website! Today’s picture is Esmae’s lovely artwork. Remember to save your work if you want to see your picture on the website!


Here are your jobs for today.


English: Use the picture of the man and the creature to write the opening and main action of a story. In your opening remember to set the scene and introduce the characters. Try to use expanded noun phrases. In the main action, describe the moment when the person realises that there is something behind them. Think about how they find out, is there a rumbling? Growling? Does a rock bounce across their path? How will they react? Try to include adverbs and speech.


Maths: Complete the counting in 8s spring maze from your Home Learning Pack. Then log onto Math Shed and practise those multiplications! Year 3 are currently in 4th position. Let’s try to move higher up the leader board!

Science: Make a list of different pushes, pulls and twists in your house.

Challenge: Can you find anything in your house where there is friction?


There is also the Forces Arrows challenge on Purple Mash from last week for you to complete. Remember to save your work so I can see what you have done and leave you comments.
