Good Morning Year 3!
We hope you have had a great weekend. We are really looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow on zoom. We will send the details out later on today.
In English today we would like you to get your CGP English books out and complete pages 15 and 16 ‘Commas, Brackets and Dashes.’ We use commas, brackets and dashes within a sentence to separate out extra information and make a sentence easier to read.
James had a rusty old bike.
By putting in commas it makes the sentence easier to read. The sentence would become
James had a rusty, old bike.
Isabella who is Mrs Etheridge’s daughter enjoys listening the nursery rhymes.
By adding commas to this sentence it makes the extra information easier to read. Using commas this sentence would become
Isabella, who is Mrs Etheridge’s daughter, enjoys listening to nursery rhymes.
On Saturday Ezra played with his Mummy Mrs Joesbury.
By using brackets it helps explain extra information in the sentence without making the sentence difficult to read. Using brackets this sentence would become
On Saturday Ezra played with his Mummy (Mrs Joesbury).
Yesterday the friends Mrs Potts and Mrs Gardener enjoyed a nice walk to the park.
By using dashes it allows for extra information to be used to clarify the text without making the sentence hard to read. With dashes this sentence would become
Yesterday the friends – Mrs Potts and Mrs Gardener – enjoyed a nice walk to the park.
In Maths we would like you to complete the pages 18 and 19 in your CGP Maths book on mental addition and subtraction. Remember mental means to be done in your head so you do not write the workings out down or use a calculator.
We would also like you to complete some Geography as well today. Today we are going to be looking at volcanoes, we know you have already looked at volcanoes so you should all be pro’s at this. We would like you to click on the link below to BBC Bitesize:
We would like you to watch the video then complete the activities set. At the bottom of this activity there is a video about climate and latitude from David Attenborough which is a great watch.
Remember to complete some physical exercise today too. We have attached a link for a Super Movers metal addition and subtraction song. Get moving and learning at the same time.
Don’t forget your daily reading today. Have a look for the use of commas, brackets and dashes within your text.
If you require any help or assistance please do not hesitate to contact us on the Class Dojo page or on our school Facebook page. You can message both Mrs Etheridge and Mrs Joesbury again from today.
Remember there are Dojo points up for grabs for every picture we see of completed work.
Have a wonderful day.
Mrs Etheridge and Mrs Joesbury
