This week, the English lessons are about diaries. You will read and comprehend diaries, think about their features and then write your own diary entry. The maths lessons this week are on multiplication and division. You will get to explore how these operations are related and learn to use your 6 and 8 times table knowledge to find division facts and multiply 2-digit numbers. In science, you can learn about acoustics and in Spanish you can learn how to describe physical appearance. There’s also another optical illusion for you to create: an anamorphic letter!

Children’s Art Week

As you already know, it’s Children’s Art Week and each week has a different theme. This week, the theme is: connecting across generations.

Respond to this theme in a creative way. You might want to work with your parents to create a piece of art or send a drawing to cheer up an elderly relative. What you do is up to you. If you would like some inspiration, have a look at some of the activities suggested by Tower Bridge:

This week, we’d like you to find out about FOOD! During lockdown, more people started to make their food from scratch. Yummy!

When you think about it, there are lots of stories about food. Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach. Many of you will have enjoyed The Very Hungry Caterpillar when you were younger. What other food related stories can you think of?

Watch the clip of Charlie when he enters the magical room where Willy Wonka makes all of his delicious sweets.

How would you feel if you were Charlie? Can you write a diary entry in role as Charlie?

Charlie experiences lots of delicious concoctions however James learns about some very unpleasant recipes in James and the Giant Peach.

james and the giant peach- have you ever seen a juicier peach ...

Using these clips for inspiration, or even other food-related stories, create a storyboard or comic strip linked to food. The food could be imaginary or real. It could even have magical powers!

What’s your favourite food? Can you create an acrostic poem for your favourite food? Think carefully about the most appropriate words to describe your food.  Here’s an acrostic poem to remind you of their features:

Acrostic Poem Examples

Illustrate your poem by drawing a sketch of your chosen food.

Food - Ready, Steady, Cook!

Keeping with the theme of food, we would like you to try and cook something at home. You do need to make sure you have permission from adults at home and only cook under supervision, making sure that you are safe. It’s over to you to rustle up a mouth-watering dish of your choice. Attached at the bottom of this page are a range of different recipe cards. For more recipe inspiration, check out BBC Food Recipes for Kids – there’s so many recipes to choose from including an easy no-yeast pizza, tuna fish cakes and soup. There’s also different collections to explore such as kid’s picnic and teatime treats.

Food – a Fact of Life also has lots of recipes to inspire you. Just looking makes you hungry!

You might have your own family favourite recipe that you would prefer to make. Have fun and enjoy! Bon appétit!

Maths - Times Tables Rock Stars

Here are last week's results:

Congratulations to 3LV - another amazing score! Well done for 3SH boys too!

Penultimate battles for the year have started this morning. Come on Year 3, it’s all to play for! Use your times tables knowledge to help your class or group to be successful. 3LV are battling against 3SH and in 3WS it is boys versus girls.  

The Trojan Horse

What can you find out about the legend of The Trojan Horse? Watch the video below to find out more:

There’s also a PowerPoint attached at the bottom of the page where you can find out more about the legend.

Use what you have discovered to write a summary of the story. You could do this in the form of a story board. What are the main events? Sequence these in order. Draw a picture for each event and write sentences to explain what is happening.

Consider how people would have felt about The Trojan Horse. Write a diary entry from the point of view of a Trojan – how did you feel when the strange horse was inside your city. Alternatively, you could write a diary entry as a Greek soldier. What was it like to be inside the horse?
