Good morning Year 3 – Happy Friday

Thank you very much for sending through all of your completed work so far this week. I really enjoy hearing from you and can see how hard you are working. Today you will be working on English, Maths, Science and Art. I hope you enjoy the tasks today. Don’t forget to send your work to


I am really pleased how many of you have been inspired to read the BFG. It is a really wonderful book. In todays lesson, we will learn about fronted adverbials and look at the purpose of an opening. We will then watch and order the first part of the opening ready for you to write it up. Remember to take your time, write a line, miss a line and make sure you use your neatest handwriting. Make sure you keep this safe as you will need it again on Monday.


Today, I would like you to do some similar work to Wednesday but instead of addition, you are going to use subtraction. Remember for this task you are mainly subtracting tens, you should be able to do this by counting backwards. I know this will be another tricky task but don’t forget to use either objects you have at home or draw your place value to help. Once you have finished watching the video, complete the worksheet as best you can.

To link in with our geography topic, we are going to focus on ‘Flow’. We will be looking at Claude Monet’s Water Lilies. Today, I would like you to complete some research all about Claude Monet. Read through the slides to find out as much about him as you can, you could also complete some of your own research too. Once you have finished this, I would like you to use the template to fill in as many interesting details about Claude Monet, his life and famous work.

I would like you to do your own investigation to finish off our rocks topic. I would like you to find out which is more permeable, a rock or a sponge. In order to complete this investigation you will need the following equipment:

  • A rock
  • A sponge
  • 2 containers
  • A measuring jug
  • Water

You are going to place the sponge in one container and the rock in another. To make this a fair test, you will need to measure out the same amount of water for each container. I want you to keep the containers together over the next few hours and watch to see which item is most permeable (you will have to do a little bit of research to find out what this word means). I would love to know your results when you email me!

Have a lovely weekend. I look forward to receiving your work and will respond on Monday.
