Message from Mrs Parry.
I hope you and your families are all well and keeping safe by staying at home. I am missing you all very much – it is very strange not being at school isn’t it? At least there has been some sunshine! I think Zac (my dog), is wondering why we are all at home. However, he is really enjoying all the extra fuss!
“Woof! Hello to all you Bluebirds out there!”
Just before school stopped we had started to learn about fractions. Can you remember? (I know you’ve had a few sleeps since then! J). Please watch a lesson each day and try to complete the activities, using this link https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/
It is really important to practise number work every day so I have listed some “four a day” questions for you to have a go at this week. Remember to line up your digits and regroup when you need to! Also practise number bonds on https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Keep practising your times tables using TT Rockstars or for a change why not try http://www.timestables.me.uk/
Please practise the ten spellings and ask someone else at home to test you – see separate blog of the list. Why not make a word search with these words in for someone else to do?! You can check it afterwards – be the teacher. Draw or print a grid from google (such as a blank 100 square) for the outline. I have also included a SPaG mat of activities for you to complete.
Have you watched any of the short animated films on http://www.literacyshed.com/ yet? There are many to choose from. Pick one you like the sound of and see if you can write a story (it could be a sequel, the next chapter, retell as one of the characters). May be we could compile a collection for each other to read? How are you getting on with your ERIC reading challenge? I am currently reading The Christmasaurus which Lexi, Pippa and Miss Dainter have all recommended ….. I want to find out why they all think it’s so fantastic!
I know you had all started making notes ready to create e-books with Mr Baddhan in Computing. Perhaps you could make an information booklet, non-fiction book or brochure for your family. Can you design the front cover too? You could get more facts from the links below and there are some fun activities too.
Ask adults at home for permission to mummify a tomato. If you do not have ingredients you can watch the method using this link. This includes some weighing (maths) and irreversible changes (science)!
Have any of you tried the Jo Wicks P.E. workouts yet? They are on every morning at 9.00 am on YouTube. I have started today! I liked the bunny jumps the best. The hardest was the plank step but I will persevere! Here is the link if you missed it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uy1yab7jAcU
I have also included a poster you might like to colour and display in your window to say thank you to all the NHS staff who are very busy working in our hospitals and medical centres. Colouring is also a way to relax too so enjoy it and relax! May be you could draw and colour in a rainbow? I know lots of you are good at rainbows because you have made me some beautiful pictures before in Golden Time!
