Word puzzle

Day 3 of our letter puzzle. Please see below todays letters.



How many words can you make?

Can you spot a 9 letter word?


Give it a go and bring your list of words with you to the 9.25 video call.




09.25 – 10.15

Maths – Calculating Perimeters

Key Stage Two Maths – Targeted Question Book.

Pages 40 and 41.


Google Classroom video call at 09.25am for the first 15 minutes.


Today we are going to use our learning from the last two days to complete our Maths Workbook pages on perimeter.  PLUS an extra challenge, but more of that below.



A couple of reminders to help you complete your Workbook questions…


  • To find the perimeter of a 2D shape you add the lengths of all the sides.
  • An equilateral triangle is a triangle with all sides the same length. Therefore if you know one side is 4cm, you also know the other two sides will also be 4cm
  • If you do not have a ruler at home, do not worry about Question 6.




Using the squares in your yellow Maths book, I want you to draw as many different shapes as possible that have a perimeter of 18cm.

Creating different shapes with an exact perimeter will be tricky so I would suggest drawing them lightly with your pencil, as you many need to rub them out or draw over them to get them right.


I will give you two to start you off in your exercise books…





10.40 – 11.05

English – creative writing.


I absolutely loved your creative writing from yesterday’s image, so today I want you to do it again.

Please see a new image below and a line to start your writing off...


Piece by piece the street was disappearing.



Can you carry on this story?

Maybe you could write it from the perspective of someone living in one of the house.

How would you feel if you woke up one morning and your street was slowly disappearing?




11.05 – 12.00

English – Writing our fiction story.

Google Classroom video call at 11.05am for the first 15 minutes.


Join us at 11.05 call today as I want to share some more of your amazing stories with you.


Today we are looking to finish writing this story


Task 1

We need to finish writing our stories.

In the closing part of our story you need to think about the moral message your story is supporting.

For example the message might be that it’s always best to work together. In that case you could put … “From that day on Peter the penguin always remembered to ask for help when he needed it”.


Task 2

Once you have finished writing your story it’s time to edit what you have written to make it even better.

As I have mentioned before no authors write a perfect story first time, everything goes through an edit or two.

Therefore to make sure you have the correct punctuation and have not missed out any words, I suggest you read your story out loud to someone. If it is possible to do this, please be sure to read out what you have actually written, not what you think you have written.

Equally, do not take a breath unless there is a full stop. If you find yourself running out of breath before you reach a full stop, you might need to review where you have used punctuation. If you do move a full stop, make sure the first word of EVERY sentence starts with a capital letter.




1.00pm – 1.20pm

Quiet Reading Time

Please use this time to log into the new Bug Club Reading Scheme, following the details found on the below page, and start reading a new book.

A couple of bits that came to light yesterday…

  1. Please do not rush through these books just so you can say you have completed them. Much like your present reading books, we would expect you to read them multiple times before going onto your next one.
  2. Read every book completely at least twice before answering the comprehension questions. I get visibility of the scores you get on your first attempt to answer the questions, so take your time and be sure or we will not be able to move you up a book band.




1.20pm – 2.20pm



Time to revisit our new topic of the Celts.

Today we will look at the homes the Celts used in live in.

Because this period shortly followed the Stone Age many features of a Stone Age home remain with some difference.


Once you have read the below information, the second sheet give you an opportunity to list what similarities and differences you can think of between a Celtic house and the houses of today.

Please consider things like what they look like, how many floors they have, what materials they are made from. These are just a couple of ideas to start you off.




2.20pm – 2.35pm

Mr Gilbey reads The World’s Worst Teacher…


BEFORE we talk about this I want to give you all a little warning about something we will be doing during this session on Friday....




On Friday rather than reading to you, we will be teaming up with Year 4 so Miss Perry and I can set both classes a challenge.

Should you have family in both classes you will be able to work as a team so get ready Team Turner!


This should be really good fun and I am looking forward to it, as long as we can get most of you participating.


The timings will be…



2.20 – 2.35pm         Join Y3 call as normal but Year 4 will be joining us as we set you the challenge


2.35 – 2.50pm                   Your time to go away and complete the challenge.



2.50 – 3.05pm                   Join a final video call to show everyone what you achieved.


So please ensure you can join us on this Friday afternoon challenge.

It will be a lot of fun and nice to see some other children beyond our Year 3 class.




But as for Mr Gilbey Read today, please join us to see who will win in the “Battle of the Stinks”… Doctor Dread OR Bog.

All I know is it will be disgusting no matter who wins!
