Good morning Year 3 


We need to start by saying how much we enjoyed seeing so many of you at school yesterday. We had so much fun in the session and though the zoom was brilliant! We were really impressed with those children who took part in the zoom lesson, you were stars! 


Today we’d like you to make sure you read for at least 15 minutes. Yesterday’s comprehension was a newspaper article so maybe you could read another one today, it doesn’t matter if you can’t find a newspaper at home as you can read articles online too, remember to ask an adult to help you if you are using the internet. 


In English today we would like to you complete the activity on pages 44 - 47. You will need to read a text all about Ancient Egypt which is non - fiction. There are many different types of non-fiction writing, such as newspapers, adverts, brochures, reference books and biographies. A non-fiction book is about facts. You can't just make it up! Once you have read through the text twice please underline any unfamiliar words and find out their meaning by either using a dictionary, asking an adult or looking on the internet. Remember that when you are answering the questions you must write in full sentences. 


The Maths activity today is about length, mass and volume which can be found on pages 38 and 39. You will need to convert between different units to answer the questions. For example: 


Which is longer? 

8cm    or    15mm


These measurements are in different units so I  need to convert the millimetres into centimetres in order the answer the question. I know that there is 10mm in 1 cm so 15mm must be 1.5cm. Therefore 8cm is the answer as it is longer than 1.5cm. 


There are also questions on grams and kilograms, this one is easy to remember as there is 1000 grams in a kilogram. 

We know that 1kg = 1000g so 5kg would be the same as 5000kg. 


You will also have to answer questions about millilitres and litres. There’s 1000 millilitres in a litre, remembering those keys facts will help you answer the questions. 


We would also like you to have a go at a dance activity on the BBC Bitesize website, the dance is based on Alice In Wonderland. The link below has lots of fun and exciting tasks as well as videos to watch. Feel free to do as many of the activities as you would like but please complete activity 1 which is about making your own ‘Falling down the rabbit hole dance’.


Have a great day and we will see you all at 1 o’clock for our very exciting zoom lesson 😃


Have a great day and stay safe!
