Class 3

Welcome to Class 3!

Welcome to Class 3! I hope that you are all still well and keeping busy. Below are some links to some home learning for this week and the previous weeks. Have a go at them and let me know how you get on. Remember there are still some other home learning ideas on the main pages as well. It would be really lovely to spend this time finding out about your local area; find out about the history of Carnforth, any special geographical features nearby and maybe even create some maps! Most of all, remember to stay safe. I can't wait to see you all again!

Home Learning (week commencing 18/5/20)

Your home learning challenge for English is above! For maths, I would like you to visit timestables.co.uk website and practise your timestables every day! If possible, at the end of the week, try to complete the practise multiplication check, take a photo and email it to me with your result. Good luck!

Home Learning (week commencing 11.5.20)

Here is your English home learning for this week! For maths, I've uploaded some arithmetic tests to keep you going for the moment. If you are struggling with any of the questions let me know. Remember, if you need to you can draw symbols or use equipment (you might need to improvise or use money to help £1 = 100, 10p = 10 and 1p = 1) 

Home Learning (week commencing 5/5/20)

Another week at home and another week of learning from home.I hope you are all well.  Above is the link to your English learning for the week. This week is poetry - I can't wait to read some of your own poetry! Please also continue to look at White Rose Maths (the link is in previous week's learning) and please let me know if I can help with anything. 

 

Extra Challenge

This week marks the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. I wonder if you can find out what VE Day is and why it is so important. You could even create some art work, poetry or a Powerpoint. 

 

 

Home Learning (week commencing Monday 27th April)

Above is the English home learning for this week. I completely understand that it is tricky to do every part of this with your child with people working from home and other  tricky circumstances; they are used to working independently at times. Maybe you could make a short list of what they need to do to complete the task, which will leave you to work from home (or relax)! I would love to know your feedback and know how you're getting on with it. 
Please also continue to look at White Rose maths (same link as last week). Again, please let me know your feedback and how you are getting on. 
smiley  REMEMBER TO STAY SAFE AND ENJOY TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY!  heart
mail

Home Learning (week commencing Monday 20th April)

Please find above the English home learning for next week. Make sure you send any work you complete to me and let me know how you get on. If you need any help, make sure you email me. 
Happy Easter Class 3! Enjoy watching your own Easter play! It made me so proud to watch it back again and it made me miss you all very much!  (Imagine what it would be like if we had extra two and a half weeks to practise!)

Take a look at our awesome poems based on Macavity, the Mystery Cat by T. S. Eliot

Arrthur the sailing cat

Arrthurs a sailing cat he’s called the pirate claw.

For he’s the pirate captain who can do so much more.

He’s the bafflement of other ships, the conquer of the water.

For when you see an empty ship, Arthur is there!

 

Arrthur Arrthur always sailing seas,

You hardly ever see him for he’s sailing with the breeze.

Arrthur Arrthur never off the water

For he’s secretly stealing sons and daughters.

 

Arrthur Arrthur boots as black as coal

Even darker then a black hole

Arrthur is a ginger cat hes tall and fin

Arrthur has a very small chin

Arrthurs head is domed

He loves his whiskers to be combed.

 

He’s very sharing (they say he’s the best at finding gold)

If you barging him it will never be sold.

Arrthur is tactical,

Also can be practical.

Arrthur loves to be a joker,

Did you know he’s really good at poker?

Arrthur has a crew of five,

They all can beat a bee hive.

 

Arrthur Arrthur he is best

Everyone knows he’s better than the rest

You know him if you saw him

Because his gold is not slim

 

If you went on a ship,

be careful you might take a dip.

His sword is sharp as a nail,

Arrthur is not as slow as a snail.

 

But whenever you see a ship,

Arrthur is there!!!

 

By Lexi Garrity

Romero the Archaeologist cat

Martha Sowerby

Romero’s an archaeologist cat; he’s called the master digger

For he’s a mini Einstein, his brain is so much bigger

He is super sensible; he always does what he’s told

Even when he’s in a hole, especially digging for gold

You will know him if you see him, for there will always be a breeze

And you will always catch him saying thank you and please

 

His fur is rough and spiky, he’s a tabby cat

He’s very tall and wide, he is rather fat

His big blue eyes are covered in mud

And when you see him walking you will always hear a thud

 

He’s confident in maths, [they say he’s the human sum]

And he’s good at music, he can play the drum

He loves going to school, he especially likes homework

He has a lot of friends but sometimes he’s a jerk

He hasn’t got much family but he loves his mum and dad

They are very kind; he has a sibling that is a lad

You will know him if you see him, for there will always be a breeze

And you will always catch him saying thank you and please

 

Romero, Romero there’s no one like Romero

He’s a handsome clever cat

And on his head he wears a top hat

You will know him if you see him, for there will always be a breeze

And you will always catch him saying thank you and please

"He wears clothes as dark as midnight."

 

"He was as thin as a pencil."
