Good morning Year 3.
Welcome to Thursday! I hope you are all ok. I do miss you all and your happy smiley faces. Please find below today's work, which includes some poetry and some PSHE from Mrs Cutler.
Please find answers to yesterday's work here. I sure you all got on well with the tenths. Again, if you didn't get one right then check and see where you went wrong.
We are going back to this week's spellings. Look and see what you need to do in each group:
Group 1 - You are looking at homophones, so these are words that sound the same, but have different meanings and spellings. See if you can think of a way to remember how to spell each one? Write it down.
Is there a fun way to remember it? - e.g. grate is what you do to cheese and it ends with an 'e' which is the sound in cheese.
Group 2 - Your rule is words that have the /u/ sound spelled with an 'o'.
Write each word out and underline the /u/ sound. e.g. Monday
Group 3 - Your rule is the /k/ sound spelled with a 'k' and not a 'c'
Write each word out and underline the 'k'. e.g. sketch
Your task today is to respond to a piece of poetry, which is was one of my favourites when I was growing up. It is called 'Dad, the Cat and the Tree'.
Listen to the poem first using the link below.
Now you can read the poem, which I have attached and see how many of the questions you can answer at the end. Write the answers in your book.
If you want to, have a go at reading the poem out to someone at home. See if they enjoy it.
Mrs Cutler has given me some Jigsaw work for you today. Jigsaw are allowing us to share this with you. There is a story in parts, discussion questions and a calming exercise. This week's is called Fowley's Wings.
You'll be able to tell your parents a little about Jigsaw too!
