Tuesday’s Learning

Hello Y3! We hope that you enjoyed our very special visit earlier from Howard Carter! It really was very special. Here are some photos from today’s learning and some from yesterday’s that arrived after we put up the post. Well done for giving it a go and we hope to see some more again tomorrow! Well done to those that sent in their work: Punyasree, Bently, Keyaan, Rizwan, Heja, Ali-Imran, Logan B, Yabsera, Meryem, Eli and Logan F!

Howard Carter Interview

We hope those that were able to join in with our live lesson enjoyed it! We are uploading the recording here so that you can re-watch it and make some more notes on his answers, when you need to. Remember, you will need to use his quotes in a newspaper article later in the week!

Unfortunately in the excitement, we missed the first question off the recording, but the rest are all included. He is now on his boat back to Egypt.

Can you complete the table below and give the characteristics of a healthy plant and an unhealthy plant? What do they need?

In Spanish, we will be looking at numbers today. Below is a lesson for you to follow and have a go at. Have fun!

PE

In school, we are going to be looking at different striking and fielding games. These include rounders and cricket. We are going to be looking at the skill of catching. If you are able, find a small ball and throw the ball in the air and see how many times you can clap before catching it successfully. If you are finding it easy, see if you can clap behind your body and then catch it!

If you can’t do anything outside, try it with a ball of socks passing to a partner. You can try catching it with one hand to make it harder!

Friday’s Learning

Hello all! We hope that you have all really enjoyed the snow and had lots of fun outside!

Well done to everyone that has done some learning today! We also know there are many of you completing activities at home and not able to send them in regularly and that is fine!

A big well done to those that sent in their work today: Punyasree, Ali-Imran, Logan F, Logan B, Yabsera, Curtis and Meryem! Logan F has pledged to walk 1.4 miles every day for the Active Challenge which is amazing! Can you spot your work below?

Also, today we have some news! From this week, we have Miss Garner joining our Y3 team until the end of March. She has recorded a video of herself reading the story, Room on the Broom! Have a watch and enjoy the story!

Also, a reminder about our live lesson on Tuesday! You need to join the lesson just before 10am. Here is the link again if you need it, but look back at the earlier post from today to learn a little more if you need to. We can’t wait to see you all!

You can choose to do this with your parents as they can enter. Teachers can also enter so hopefully you will see some of them out completing the challenge too!
If you want to take part in the challenge then follow the link below. Scroll to the bottom and fill in your details to enter for free!https://www.sheffieldgetmoving.co.uk/shop
We can’t wait to see you all being active and remember to send in photos of you doing things so we can put them on the blog!

Writing

Before you watch the video for today’s lesson, make sure you have watched the video that we are using for our writing this week. You need to have watched and remembered what happens in this before you start the lesson!

We also have some exciting news! We are going to try a live writing lesson on Tuesday next week. We are going to be interviewing Howard Carter who was a famous archaeologist and we want you to be able to ask him questions. A couple of things though:

You may need an adult to help you, but all you have to do is follow this link below and you can choose to show your face on a camera or not and it will be recorded. Other people will be able to see you so you could see your friends too. If you want to ask Howard a question, email the Y3 email with your questions and we will ask you to ask Howard in the lesson. You will then be able to unmute yourself and ask the question.

We look forward to seeing you all! If you have any questions about how to do it, just email y3@watercliffe.sheffield.ch.uk.

Mr Barnes is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom lesson.
