Good morning Year 3.

It was so lovely seeing so many of you yesterday that we are going to do another short meeting today at 9am. I am very excited to get to see you again.

Thank you for continuing to send me your work too. It is lovely to hear from you. Today your tasks will include English, Math, Science and ICT. Please submit all of your work and I will be feeding back to you on your English.


You will be carrying on writing the sentence opening you began on Tuesday. Use the work you completed yesterday about compound sentences to support your writing further. Make sure you keep using the wonderful fronted adverbials and sentence openers throughout your writing and remember to use your best handwriting throughout your work. Watch the video and complete the tasks set.


Using column addition the techniques you used developed yesterday, you are going to carry on adding 3-digit and 2-digit numbers. Remember to make sure you set up your columns using your place value knowledge to ensure you are adding the correct digits. Please use objects you have around the house to help when you are exchanging numbers (I find lego is always useful for these tasks).

Please complete the worksheet when you are ready. I have attached the answers again today so you can mark your work and work through any errors you find.

I would like you to create a new Scratch project. This project is going to allow the sprite to make a sound when a specific button is pressed. This means the project must include at least one sprite, a background and a sound that will be linked to the sprite. Follow the instructions provided and remember to test you program regularly and debug if you find errors. Once you have created your program, please look at the extension tasks where you will be able to extend your algorithms.
