"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Tuesday 26th April

Good Morning Year 3 - please find today's tasks below! Remember if you get stuck or have trouble logging into something please email and I'll do my best to help you! :) I will be doing a teams at 9am - link sent via MME to explain the tasks :)

Spellings - please look at your groups spellings, if you are unsure which group is yours - then please email me!

Reading task - today I would like you to use the clues below to help you write a prediction of our new class text by Michael Bond! A little clue for you is that our book has a very famous character in it and it has also been turned into two films! Try and write a paragraph predicting what you think our class text might be about! The best ones all start with ' I predict that....'

Think about the characters, setting and what might happen!

Maths - please see my maths for your task for today!  There is a video if you follow this link to help if you are stuck!

Remember if you are still stuck there is a lesson to help you alongside the mymaths task. If you can't log on to my maths - please complete the questions below!

Writing task! Hopefully you have all guessed by now that our new class text is A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond! Or you have guessed that our main character is Paddington Bear! Later this week we are going to be writing a character description for Paddington Bear but today I would like you to watch the video clips below of Paddington and have a go at completing a character role on the wall of him - using lots of lovely adjectives and noun phrases ( fluffy, scruffy bear) to describe what he looks like and how he acts. 

Have a watch of these clips or if you have the film at home - feel free to watch it to help!!


Then complete the activity - you can print it or even draw your own outline of Paddington to do your character role on the wall!

French task - today you are going to start looking at our new French topic (As-tu un animal?) which is all about animals! Watch the video below and then have a go at labelling the animals in French using the wordbank to help! You don't have to print, you can draw the animals and label them in French in your homework books!
