Good Tuesday Legends of Year 3!

 

Thanks for your feedback on yesterday's register. Keep the lovely messages coming please.

 

Lovely messages here please

 

Cool thing number 1

 

Before I go to bed, I like to listen to audiobooks (because you can do it with the lights out and you don’t have to wear uncomfy glasses either).

 

I wondered if you might also like listening to stories. If you do then this website has lots of brilliant audiobooks for you to enjoy.

Cool thing number 2

 

Just because we aren’t at school DOES NOT mean that The Easter Bonnet competition is cancelled. What I’d love you to do is to make your very best Easter bonnet.

Obviously you can’t go to the shops to buy new things so I want you to be as creative as you can with this using anything you can find in the house. If you really can’t find any materials to make an actual bonnet then a drawing will be just as good.

Once you are finished, send your pictures to my email address at the end of the week.

 

Maths

 

I wasn’t HALF impressed by your fractions knowledge yesterday so well done! See if you can do even better today with some more fractions work.

Good luck!

 

Reading

 

Read Fabio the world’s greatest Flamingo Detective up to page 34

Remember, if there are any words you aren't sure about then look them up in an online dictionary like this one here;

Answer the following quick-fire questions NEATLY in your exercise book

 

  1. What does the wearer of the Laloozee Ruby need to have?
  2. What happened to the waiter when the train stopped suddenly?
  3. Find two verbs on page 32 that tell us how Fabio was moving around the train.

 

PLEASE DON’T BE MAD AT ME!

 

I have a confession to make; I have not given you the whole book! I lost it going down a water slide (this might be true - it also might not).

 

Because the rest of the book is missing, I want you to complete the chapter of this book from the moment Fabio saw the elephant tied up on the railway line. Write an exciting paragraph or two that imagines what might have happened next.

 

  • Did Fabio save the elephant?
  • Did Fabio ask the elephant any questions? (he should do if he’s a good detective!)
  • Who is the elephant?
  • Why was the elephant there?

most importantly…

  • Did Gilbert get his Black Forest Gateau pudding???

 

It’s up to you because the story’s yours now. Enjoy!

 

Writing task for the rest of the week

 

On Friday, you created your own character. I know you will have given your character lots of interesting features.

 

I’d love for you to write a short story that follows a day in the life of your character.

 

Here are some things you might want to include in your story.

 

  • Where is your character at the start of the story? (use your descriptive skills to put your character in a detailed setting)
  • Are they going anywhere special? (use their hobbies to choose a suitable place)
  • Are they meeting anyone when they get there?
    • Who is the person they are meeting? (give a short character description so the reader can imagine them)
  • How does your character feel about the day they are having so far?
  • Are there any problems with your character’s day?
    • Perhaps your character might lose something important?
    • How does the problem get solved?
  • What does your character do at the end of the day?

 

You don’t need to answer all of these questions but they might help you.

 

IMPORTANT - Take a few days to finish this task if you need to. Can you use the things we have been learning over the last week to make your story exciting to read?

 

I hope you enjoy today’s tasks. Keep going. You are doing so well!
