wednesday maths


In today’s literacy lesson, we are adding to our word banks to help us form as many ideas as we can ready to write our own story opening tomorrow. As Miss Moore explains in the clip one of the most powerful parts of our literacy lessons is sharing and building on each other’s ideas. Therefore, in today’s lesson we have tried to share some ideas with you to get you started but just like in lessons we would like you to build on them and make them your own. It has been lovely to hear lots of you are still managing to share and discuss your ideas with friends in lessons via facetime or phonecall and we think this is a great way to help you magpie and think your brilliant ideas through. However, we do understand that is not possible for all children and therefore we will do our best to include some ideas that can give you the starter you might need in our videos.

As explained in the clip you might want to watch the BBC dramatisation clip again:


To generate ideas for what  you could hear  from your boat Miss Moore explains you could close your eyes and listen to the clip below:


As last week, here is your weekly spellings and spelling task.  You can either print these sheets out and record your practice attempts in the boxes or write the spelling words out a few times/put them into sentences on some paper from home.

These are from EdShed so you can log in using the details found at the back of your diary and play the interactive spelling games to help you practice if you think this might help.  We won’t be setting a formal time to test your spellings but if you would like to please feel free to organise a time to test yourselves and let us know your scores.

Spelling- week 2

Forest School Art

We were so impressed that so many of you continued to enjoy our Forest School activities at home.  Your Andy Goldsworthy artwork was amazing and showed real thought and imagination – well done! I am sure Andy himself would be proud of these creations! The pictures of your delicious hot chocolates made us very jealous! Last week we looked at 2D sculptures. Today we will look at 3D sculptures. Please watch the clip  below to find out more about today’s task,

In the clip,you are also given  the time to pause Miss Moore and  asked to watch this video:

Don’t forget to enjoy a nice warming cup of hot chocolate afterwards too. We look forward to seeing your creations!

As ever, we are here to help, no matter how small the query!

Take care

Year 3 Team!
