Good Morning Year 3!
We hope you have had a fantastic weekend. We are really looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow on zoom. We will send the details out later on today.
The Joe Wicks P.E lessons are a great way to start your day. They are live at 9am but can be done at any time of the day. The link is below.
In English today we would like you to get your CGP English books out and complete page 19 ‘semi-colons and single dashes.’ We use semi-colons and single dashes within a sentence to separate out extra information and make a sentence easier to read.
A single dash is used to put emphasis on extra information given.
Mrs Potts hoped she would get all of her spelling correct she had been practising at home.
By using a single dash 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
Mrs Potts hoped she would get all of her spelling correct - she had been practising at home.
A semi-colon is used to join two sentences together without needing to use a conjunction such as and.
Mrs Etheridge works Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Joesbury works Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
But using a semi-colon we can get rid of the conjunction and. The sentence would then become
Mrs Etheridge works Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; Mrs Joesbury works Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
In Maths we would like you to complete the pages 26 and 27 in your CGP Maths book on solving calculation problems. Remember to read the questions carefully and use your four rules ( + - x ÷) to solve the problems.
We would also like you to complete some Geography as well today. Today we are going to be looking at rivers. 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 another video from David Attenborough which is a great watch.
Don’t forget your daily reading today. Have a look for the use of semi-colons and single dashes in your chosen 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.
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
