Hello Year 3,
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Can you believe we are in to week 10 (13 weeks if you include the holidays) of home learning! I know Mrs Wood and Mrs Questa are all missing your wonderful, smiling faces, they love looking on here to see what you have been up to over the past couple of weeks. This week we are continuing our work on measurement including perimeter, remember that BBC Bitesize have lots of informative videos that you can use to help you with your learning. In English, we are going to look at non-chronological reports.
Should you have any technical issues with websites or missing logins/passwords then we have set up a new email address for you to send these queries, which will be monitored by Mr Duffy.
Keep smiling Year 3!
We hope you all have a lovely week!
Mr Elliot & Mrs Wood

BBC Bitesize – From this week White Rose Maths and BBC Bitesize run in line with each other. This means that every day, there’s a learning video on the White Rose page to watch and a link to that day’s BBC Bitesize page for more information and even more lesson content.
Writing - Non-Chronological Reports
This week, The National Oak Academy are looking at writing non-chronological reports. In this week’s lessons, you will cover a number of English objectives including: fact retrieval, identifying key features of a text, adverbials and writing your own non-chronological report. Have a go at completing each of the daily activities and do not forget to send me your stories at the end of the week.
When you click on the link, all of the lessons from previous weeks are still on there, make sure that you only do the ones for this week, which are at the bottom of the webpage.
This week’s spellings focus: initial ‘s’ sound spelt with ci, ce and cy circle
Practise these words three times and write them in sentences.

I would like you to complete the BBC Bitesize lesson on ‘Did the Romans conquer Scotland?’ In this lesson, you will find out how and why the Romans came to Scotland. The lesson includes three videos about the Romans in Scotland and two activities to build knowledge and understanding.
Music – Recorders (Keep going with this)
A message from Mrs Meek - I hope those of you who have been learning to play the recorder with me have been able to do a bit of practising. Perhaps you could spend the next couple of weeks rehearsing a piece of music and then ask someone to film you giving a performance to some members of your family. I would love to see them. As we shall not be able to perform to the rest of the school and your parents like we did last year, anyone who sends a video will earn their gold performance belt for their recorder. We can have a presentation session once you are back in school. Keep playing! 🎶
