Good morning Class 3! I hope you have had a lovely weekend!
Let’s see what you’ve been up to:
Here is Olivia’s newspaper report – she has clearly worked so hard on this and should be very proud – such a good and entertaining read!
Here is Zak’s plan and report – his handwriting is looking fantastic!
Here is Summer’s report about a very big adventure she had recently! Great use of the 5 w’s and you have set it out just like a newspaper- well done!
Thankyou so much for sending in your writing from last week- I can’t wait to read more of your writing this week!
Literacy: Explanation texts:
This week the purpose of our writing is to explain how things work/why things happen etc. We will be using subordinate conjunctions to help us with this – remember I SAW A WABUB.
Today you will be writing to explain why the Maya civilisation were an important part of history- use your research from previous week’s work for history to help you with this.
Year 3: Use a variety of subordinate conjunctions to explain in your writing today – remember to place a comma before the conjunction when using it in your sentence e.g. The Maya civilisation played an important role in time, as they created one of the most accurate calendars in human history. Underline your conjunctions used in a colour to identify them! Try the year 4 task for a challenge.
Year 4: Use a variety of subordinate conjunctions to join two clauses or start the sentence, using a comma to identify the subordinate clause e.g. Because the Maya were very good at Mathematics, they made one of the most historically accurate calendars known in human history. Use parenthesis to add extra information and further up-level your sentences.
Maths: I have set some new tasks on Mathletics – this week’s topic is addition and subtraction – let me know how you get on with it!
BBC Bitesize Year 3: Measure mass in grams and kilograms
BBC Bitesize Year 4: Identifying angles
Afternoon activity: History- The Maya civilisation:
For this afternoon’s activity, you are going to do some internet research to find out possible reasons as to why the Mayas are a civilisation ‘lost’ in time, what happened to them? Note down your findings and then write a paragraph explaining which reason you believe is the real reason the Mayas disappeared, justifying your answer with what you have learnt during your work on this topic. Here are some websites that may help you: https://www.history.com/topics/ancient-americas/maya
