Welcome to Topic Tuesday!

Active Start

I hope that you enjoy today’s work out with Joe Wicks: (TheBodyCoachTV on YouTube). I do hope that the spinning wheel doesn’t cause Joe as much trouble as it did yesterday!

 

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

 

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.

 

English

Today we're going to spend some time for our Topic work, thinking carefully about where in the world the Broads are. So, we'll need to revise our knowledge a little bit.

Start off by using this lesson on the BBC website:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvsfr82/articles/znm7vk7

 

I've also found a catchy song for you to listen to and have a go at learning. I've found that it really sticks in my mind after listening to it a few times and it really helps me to remember the order of the continents from biggest to smallest:

Then have a go at the quiz! How do you get on?

Then write the date and the title, ‘Mapping the world’

Write a paragraph (or 2 if you fancy a challenge!) to explain what you have learned today. Use all your knowledge from the BBC lesson and from the 7 continents song to help you to include key facts and information.

If you have access to a printer, then you could also print off the map that I have attached and see if you can correctly label the continents on it.

If you don’t have a printer, don’t worry, see if you can tell an adult at home where each continent is by using the map on the screen. You could even list the 7 continents under your paragraphs in your book and then add a little fact (can you remember some from the ‘Continents Song’) about it beside it.

Maths: More Minute Madness!

Well done for some great maths work yesterday! Lots of you chose great activities and had a great go at estimating how many you could do in 1 minute. There were some very close estimations!

Today I would like you to think more about minutes!

I have attached a document which has questions about minutes on a number line, to help you to deepen your understanding. If you can print this off, that great. If not, then you can draw a simplified version of the number line for each question in your maths book, ( you might even want to enjoy using a different coloured pen to make your answer nice and clear).

Where are the Broads?

Now that we have spent some time revising our knowledge about the World and mapping, I would like you to spend some time looking more closely at a map of the UK.

I have attached a map of the UK here. Again, if you can print this off, that’s great. If you don’t have a printer, don’t worry. Do you have a road map or an atlas at home which has a map of the UK and England in it that you can use? Or you can just look at the map on the computer screen and discuss these questions with an adult.

Can you find where North Walsham would be on that map?

Which county is North Walsham in? Trace the outline of the county with your finger. Can you name any of the counties that border ours?

Can you describe, using compass directions (north, south, east, west) whereabouts our County is in England?

 

Eventually, (in a few weeks' time) I would like you to use all the learning that you do over the next few weeks to write a leaflet all about The Broads.

 

So, today I would like you to begin writing for your leaflet by writing a section about ‘Where are the Broads?’. Use your answers from the questions above to help you to include some important, key information.

 

Again, if you would like even more of a challenge, then there are some places on the map for you to have a go at labelling, after you have done some research.

I hope that you have a lovely day and look forward to seeing your work,

Mrs Crosswell smiley
