Good morning Sycamore Class!

Welcome to Get Moving Monday!

Active Start

Decide whether you are ready for an energetic start to the week with Joe Wicks or a dance workout with Oti Mabuse. Or perhaps you'd prefer a more peaceful start to help you to ease into the week with some Yoga from Cosmic Kids Yoga?

 After a nice, active start, time to get focused! 


Remember to try to spend a bit of time every day on these following activities:

  • Read for at least 30 minutes - As the weather is getting a bit nicer, perhaps you can spend a bit of time enjoying reading a book in the garden on a blanket? Perhaps you can write a book review once you have finished the book you are currently reading and send it to me by email?
  • Practice times tables for 20 minutes. Year 3’s, you should know: 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 by the end of this school year.
  • Practice spellings for 15 minutes Choose 5 words a day to practice using look, cover, say, write, check. Highlight the words when you definitely know them.

I wonder if any of you have seen on the news over the weekend, that the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton), has launched a new competition. I know that when we watch BBC Newsround in class, lots of you like seeing the photos that are often taken by the Duchess of the young Princes George and Louie and Princess Charlotte.

The Duchess really enjoys taking photographs. So the competition which she has launched is to create a unique photographic portrait that captures the spirit, mood, hopes, fears, and feelings of the nation as we continue to deal with the Coronavirus outbreak.

So, for this week’s diary entry, I would like you to take part in this competition! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if an entry from our class was perhaps chosen? So, with an adult to help you, think carefully about a photo that you would like to take, (or maybe you have already taken one that you would like to use?).

The competition is completely free to enter and there is no age limit, but what you need to do is make sure that you submit your own photographic portrait which is on these themes:

-Helpers and Heroes

-Your new normal

-Acts of Kindness

One hundred shortlisted portraits will feature in a virtual exhibition on the Gallery’s website and a selection of the images will also be shown across the UK later in the year.

Today, once you have taken your photo that you would like to enter, please send a copy to:

Please send a copy to the class email too, and we can have our own class gallery for ‘Hold Still’!

In your English book, you could write a paragraph about your entry, your inspiration for the photo, the subject of your photo, what the photo means to you.

Enjoy your creative diary entry for this week J


Maths: 24 hours a day, time

You have all been doing really well with all your learning all about Time, Sycamore class, well-done J

There were some fabulous timetables that you wrote for your daily activities, last week and also some great work in comparing the amount of time that you spent on activities. Great stuff!

This week, we’ll spend some time thinking about 24-hour clocks, digital time and word problems.

We know that there are 24 hours in a day, and so far you have all been working really well, using your home made clocks. But how do we tell the time using 24 hour time?

I know you have enjoyed the few Maths Mansion programmes that we have used in class to help with our learning, so today I have one all about Time to help you!

After watching, you could have a go at the problem at the end if you feel able to. Or you write your own handy hints for how to tell the time in both 12 hour and 24 hour time including some examples of your own!

PE Challenge 4 from Pav

Well, the weather yesterday was certainly very different from what we had on Friday and Saturday. So, whatever the weather today, here’s a challenge from Pav that you could do either inside or outside today!

Song of the week


Singer-songwriter Beccy Owen teaches you how to sing her song, 'It's getting too hot for monkeys'. This song is about the effects of global warming.

Listen to the song and enjoy the humorous style and contemporary ‘in-jokes’ whilst at the same time recognising the all-important message behind it. As you listen, spot the clever ‘monkey’ rhymes in the lyrics – ‘baboon/swoon’, ‘marmoset/sweat’.

Can you spot any others? 

Hoping that you all have a lovely day, and looking forward to seeing your entries for the 'Hold Still' competition.
