Good morning Robins,
It has been lovely to chat to some of you on the phone because I have been missing you this week. I haven't had many emails or pictures like last week. Please do keep in touch and let me know what you are doing. It doesn't have to be school work(although I do like to see that too), I have had some lovely ones of people playing too.
Some of the children I spoke to have set me a challenge of getting Molly into a maths video somewhere. You might have to wait until after the holiday for that because I had some problems with the camera today and had to film at school after some help from Mr Cayzer - thank you. Look out for her after Easter because I need to complete my challenge!
Today's handwriting, literacy and maths is all here ready for you. One more day, then you have a break. :)
Don't forget to help your parents and get some exercise outside in your garden too.
Using your fact file about your chosen animal to help you, think about a feature of the animal and think of a story about how it could have got its spots, tail, ears, stripes, long tongue etc.(Choose just one)
Write your story about how it got that feature.
Think about what the animal was like in the beginning. You first part should introduce the animal and describe it and describe where its habitat.
The middle of your story should explain what happened to make the animal change.
The end should say what the animal is like now and maybe what other animals think. How has the change helped your creature?
This is your task for today and tomorrow (Friday)
Make sure you think about starting sentences in different ways (year 3 fronted adverbials) adding detail and description, adventurous vocabulary, draw your reader in and make them want to read more, check punctuation and spelling carefully when you edit afterwards. Year 3 try to include paragraphs.
Please do send your writing to me to read, I'd love to read your stories and be your audience. Even if you don't finish it until the holidays, I'd still love to hear from you and read your stories.
I will be on my email all the time when I'm not in school, so please keep in touch and I will reply. I will try to keep going with the story but I won't be setting any more work after Friday, until after Easter. I will put some fun activity ideas in a list you can have a go at with your families if you are looking for something to do.
