Good morning Year 3!  Hope your weekend was fabulous yesheart 

No doubt you will all be glad to read that this week there isn't as much writing as our Big Write last week.  Thank you all for your herculean effort with the persuasive writing.  Today starts the beginning of a short week. Monday to Wednesday are full of Science, PE, Music, Art and Ramadan activities-- in addition to the usual Reading, Maths and Spelling and Grammar.  Thursday is VE day (like Earth Day there will be a variety of activities --off curriculum) and then Friday is a Bank Holiday.  Are those whoops of joy we hear?!

adverb of manner 

adverb of place

Please open Light-Sun Damage.pdf and follow the lesson. The activity is to make a poster.  We look forward to having some to display on the gallery or on Twitter to show others how to stay safe in the Sun. 


12:30pm  Lunch 


1:30pm  PE Cricket - Understanding the importance of fielding when playing a game. 

While learning to play cricket in term 4, it became apparent that many children needed work on throwing and catching to prevent the batter getting in quite so many runs while the ball was thrown without aim, hence not caught, dropped, rolled through legs, etc.   This week we are working on independent throwing and catching skills. Can you do all 7 without dropping the ball?  If you don’t have a ball, a beanbag or sock ball will work. 


2:30pm  Break 


2:45-3:00pm  Music  

Please have another run-through of the VE day songs, before going on to sing and learn the lyrics to The Lion Sleeps Tonight. 


VE Day songs 


The Lion Sleeps Tonight  

In the jungle, the mighty jungle 
The lion sleeps tonight 
In the jungle the quiet jungle 
The lion sleeps tonight 


Near the village the peaceful village 
The lion sleeps tonight 
Near the village the quiet village 
The lion sleeps tonight 


Hush my darling don't fear my darling 
The lion sleeps tonight 
Hush my darling don't fear my darling 
The lion sleeps tonight
