# Year 3 – Wednesday 20th May 2020

Good morning everyone!

Thank you again for joining in with and completing the daily tasks on the blog.

If you are having a go at the tasks on paper or in books then do let us know what you’ve completed by commenting at the bottom of the page or email us some pictures of your work on yearthree@lingsprimary.org.uk

You might be in with a chance of a certificate tomorrow!

On Thursday this week there’s going to be a worldwide attempt to break a Guinness World Record.

We want you to join in with this!

It’s something different and all you need to do is get an adult to register with an email and be ready for an arty world record on Thursday afternoon.

## Writing:

Grab yesterdays plan and remind yourselves what you are going to be writing about today.

You might want to flick through the PowerPoint again to help you.

Remember capital letters, full stops, speech marks, paragraphs, exciting adjectives, conjunctions and most importantly create suspense and tension!

They should be between 1 and 2 pages long.

## Science:

Watch this video. Once you’ve watched it you need to come up with a list of things that humans do that have both a positive and negative impact on the environment.

For example: pollution, littering, deforestation, littering, animal conservation, growing your own vegetables.

After that, you can create a poster encouraging people to take care of our plants and nature using this list.

## Story time:

No problem! Listening to a story is just as good as reading one.
