                                            Friday July 3rd.

Good morning Class 3.smiley It's Friday already! What a busy week we've had. You've been superstars and we are very proud of you all. Are you watching the assemblies Mrs Fryman and Mrs McClellan are uploading and have you seen the stories being read by some of the teachers? I hope you enjoy today's work and then have a well deserved rest over the weekend.yes


Here are today's activities.



It's Times Tables Friday again Class 3.


Try to work out the answers to these sums as quickly as you can. You could time yourself!

There's also a Times Table Mosaic for you colour in if you'd like an extra activity! 



I'd like you to produce a booklet today all about PLASTIC POLLUTION using all the information you have been collecting throughout the week.


I know how much you love making your own booklets so I've added some templates below that you can use if you want to. You could also make your own booklet from paper you may have at home or by using the pages in your book.


Remember to sort your booklet out into different sections. You may want a page about plastic and its uses or who invented plastic? You could have a page about The Mariana Trench or how we can reduce the plastic in our oceans. It's entirely up to you Class 3. I know you'll try your best and produce beautifully neat work and fantastic illustrations.

Have a great time and I look forward to seeing what you have done.


There may be some work you haven't completed on your 2do list. If you still have time today you may want to complete these activities before the due in date on Monday.



Please read every day Class 3 and remember to read your own books if you have completed all your Active Learn books.



Please practise your times tables every day Class 3.


Thank you for working so hard. We are incredibly proud of you all.

Have a lovely weekend.

Your maths work today is all about revision.

There are 4 revision mats below. Choose the mats you would like to complete. You could try completing all of them. Read the questions CAREFULLY.

There is some measuring work to do today so you will need a ruler before you start. There are a few time questions on Mat 4 - remember that there are 60 minutes in an hour. You can leave question 1 on Mat 1 as we haven't done roman numerals yet - or you could use it as a challenge and see if you can find out!

Good morning Class 3.smiley We hope you all had a wonderful weekend. What strange weather we've been having! It's been brilliant sunshine one minute, then torrential rain the next.surprise Let's hope for sunshine all week this week.

Mrs Ames, Mrs Hopley and I have been blown away by the work you've been producing and are very proud teachers.


Thank you SO much to those of you who have contributed to our class blog on Purple Mash. It was great to hear what you all got up to over the weekend. Our topic for this week is "what we are reading" so if you've read a great book in lockdown, make sure you head over to the blog page (under the sharing tab) and let us know about it. Mrs Ames has shared the book she has been reading on there too!


Here are today's activities:



We are going to revise VENN DIAGRAMS today. You will have done this work in Class 2 and it is something we would have covered this term in school.

A Venn diagram (named after mathematician John Venn in 1880) is a method used to sort items into groups. A Venn diagram is made up of 2 circles that overlap. It can be used to sort objects, numbers or shapes.

Here's a video clip to jog your memories.

Venn Diagram

Using a Venn Diagram, students identify similarities and differences between two things by listing certain features in a chart containing overlapping circles...

Complete the activity below as a starter.
Now try some of these. Remember that if they fit the criteria for both circles, they must go in the middle where the circles overlap. If they don't fit in either group they are placed anywhere outside the circles.


We are going to continue our RECYCLING and looking after our planet theme this week Class 3. I'd like you to complete a reading comprehension task today about plastic pollution. Think back to the wonderful story Holly Stephens shared with us when she came into class.

Choose the work that you feel will challenge you most.


Our spelling pattern this week is words that end in 'ary'.

Take a look at the presentation below to learn more about the spelling words and to find out your activity for this week laugh
