Monday 30th March 2020

AHA Year 3, there you are! I’ve been looking everywhere!

 

I hope you have had a relaxing weekend and are looking after yourselves and your families.

 

First of all, I want to thank those of you who sent work to my school email address. I loved seeing what you’ve been working on and it really lifted my spirits.

 

(If you aren’t sure what my email address is, I will put it at the bottom of this post)

 

I also hope that your celebration assemblies went well and that the people who got certificates were proud of themselves.

 

Thirdly is this great website.

It's Roald Dahl himself reading Fantastic Mr Fox! I love his voice so much, it makes me feel so relaxed. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did when I was your age.

 

Maths

 

It’s TIME for maths and you’ll probably be able to guess what (H)OUR topic is this week. “Wait a MINUTE, Mr Webber” I hear you cry from your homes “We can’t be doing reading clocks for a SECOND week in a row!”

 

That’s right, it’s FRACTIONS! (did I trick you? I bet I didn’t)

 

First, look at the lesson and then have a go at the task I have set for you (remember finding half of an amount is the same as dividing the total into two equal groups)

Reading

 

Read Fabio the world’s greatest Flamingo Detective from page 24 up to the end of Page 28

Answer these three quick-fire questions in your exercise book.

 

  1. What drink did Fabio order on the train?
  2. Who sat down with Fabio and Gilbert and what was her name?
  3. The author uses a simile to describe the pendant/necklace on page 27. Find and copy the simile into your book.

 

Find this line in the book

 

‘This is the Laloozee Ruby,’ she said. ‘I shouldn’t really be wearing it. It’s very valuable, you see, but I thought, as we’re on a train, what could possibly happen to it?’

 

    4. Is the author giving use a clue to what might happen next? Write in your book what you think might happen to            the Laloozee Ruby.
