IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR ALL!
Year 3 have been sent a VERY important mission and we would love for as many people as possible to join in with this.
As you know, we are experiencing a very strange time right now and for some people they are going through this alone without any family or friends around them.
On Wednesday, we were asked if we could do something great for the elderly community in Northampton.
Year 3 have been given an address of a lovely elderly person who lives in a care home and we would love for you to send wonderful pictures, cards and letters to this address through the post to help them through this tough time and put a smile on their face.
All you will need is some pens, paper, an envelope and a stamp!
We would love to see pictures of you drawing or writing letters and then posting them into a post box either on the comments or to our year group email (email@example.com). Siblings and other relatives are welcome to join in too.
Year 3 teachers will be joining in with this in the hope that everyone does too!
Here’s the address:
Spencer House Care Home
Room Number 21
The Cheerful Little Letter Project
We look forward to seeing your pictures and letters being posted!
Mrs Beckwith, Miss Lindop, Miss Barden and Miss Willmer.
Here’s your daily Maths challenge.
Ask people at home how many they can see.
Write your answers in the comments.
Remember that you also have Maths worksheets in your home learning packs.
Bed In Summer
In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light,
In summer, quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.
I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.
And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?
Read the poem and then answer these questions in the comments section.
- What is this poem about?
- Look at the first verse. What word indicates it is dark?
- ‘I have to go to bed and see The birds still hopping on the tree.’ How does this show us the poet’s feelings about going to bed?
Pick an object around the house, place it in a nice light place.
Draw your object.
Remember to take your time and use all of the techniques to create a fantastic drawing.
If you’re struggling, this video could be a good starting point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HBvjbCHU4w
Write in the comments what you have drawn – if you can, take a picture of your drawing and upload it to the comments.
Some things you could draw:
- A spoon
- A banana
- A book
- An egg
- A teddy bear
Finished all of that? Want something else to do?
Watch this video and teach yourself the alphabet in Spanish. Remember, you won’t get it all right first time. Keep trying whenever you have a minute.
British Sign Language:
Every day at 1pm, Natasha and her sister will be teaching the nation some British Sign Language on Youtube.
They started yesterday, so you might want to catch up on yesterday’s video before you join in today.
Follow this link to find her Youtube channel and click on her video’s called ‘Learn Beginners British Sign Language’
BSL is an important skill that you may need to use one day, even if it is just the basics.
Want to do some reading but have read all of your books at home?
No problem! Listening to a story is just as good as reading one.
