Tuesday 5th May

 Welcome to Topic Tuesday!

Today, have fun choosing an active start that you enjoy! Perhaps you'll choose Joe Wicks, maybe some yoga, maybe a Pav challenge, maybe creating a circuit of your own using what you have learnt! Have fun laugh

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

Last week, we thought carefully about where in the world the Broads are, by thinking carefully about the Continents of the world and then zooming in on the UK and finding where the Broads are on a map of the UK. Last week, you wrote a paragraph explaining where the Norfolk Broads are so that it is ready to include in your leaflet that you will produce in a few weeks time.

Today, I would like you to write a paragraph about where all the water in the Broads and the Rivers comes from, ready to include in your leaflet.

We already did some work on this in class in science earlier this year, so this is revision J

Use the pages (the pdf) from the Broads Authority to read about the Water Cycle and its important role. Then use the song which I have put below to have some fun singing along to revise the water cycle.

Once you have read and sung, then in your English book, write the date and the title ‘The Water Cycle’ and then write a paragraph or two explaining the Water Cycle in your own words.

I have also included this website here if you would like to have a go at making your own mini water cycle at home. To do this you’ll need a sealing sandwich bag, and a sharpie. There is a short video on the website which explains what to do! Send in a picture of your water cycle if you do make one!

Maths: Measuring Time

 

Today I would like you to think some more about some of the vocabulary that was used on the table that you used. It would also be good to think carefully about the different times in the day that we do activities and that things happen.

 

If you have a printer and are able to, please print this off and complete the table. If you do not have a printer, do not worry, you can draw the table into your book and then write the activities into it in the correct places.

Topic

 

Today I would like you to take the time to look at and use the map on the website below.

https://www.visitnorfolk.co.uk/explore/Broads-guide-to-rivers.aspx

If you would prefer to, you could also use the pdf which I have attached to find the information.

In your book, neatly draw a table like the one below. Then use it to find and record this information:

What are the names of the Rivers in the Broads network?

Can you find and list some of the  Northern Broads and Southern Broads?

Rivers

Northern Broads

Southern Broads

 

 

 

Can you find some of the Broads that you have visited on the map and add them to your table?

Have a great day!
