Good morning Sycamore!

It's '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.


Last week there was some really fabulous learning from you all at Home as well as in School from the Key Worker children. Lots of you told me how much you enjoyed having a book to enjoy and then some activities linked to it, and asked to have something similar again this week.


So this week, I am in school with a Key Worker group of children, and I thought that I would focus on another beautiful picture book with you all at Home and at School.


The book is called, ‘Stuck’ and it is by author and illustrator, Oliver Jeffers. Here you can watch it being read aloud by Oliver Jeffers:

Then, for today’s diary entry, I want you to have a think about a time when you have been ‘stuck’ recently, during Lockdown. In class, we use our ‘growth mindset’ when we come across a problem. Today you will write about how you have used your Growth Mindset during Lockdown.


Here are some questions that you can use to help you with your writing:

When was it? What was it that you were stuck with? How did it feel when you were stuck? How did you solve this problem? What was your strategy? How did you feel once the problem was solved?

I look forward to reading all about your examples of using your Growth Mindset.


This week we will focus on written addition strategies.

Today, I would like you to revise using a number line for addition, by practicing your number bonds to 100. In Year 3, you need to have a confident, mental knowledge of these number bonds. However, drawing or visualizing a number line to be able to find number bonds is a really useful strategy.


So, today, please open this document I have attached, which shows an example of how to use a number line to find a number bond to 100. Then there are some questions below for you to have a go at. Please draw the number line and the jumps neatly in your book, remembering to use a sharp pencil and ruler to keep your work neat.
