Well done, Year 3! Another week of online learning complete! I am so proud of you all! This weekend it is the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch. Some of the guided reading Teams sessions this week read a text about garden birds. I wonder if you will be able to spot any birds in your garden over the weekend? Let me know on Seesaw!

See you again on Monday! I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

We looked at feelings in our English lesson yesterday so please refer back to this to help you.

Spellings

Please spend some time today practising your spelling words. Perhaps you could ask somebody at home to check your spellings like we do in school on Fridays?

I have uploaded the new spellings for this week at the bottom of this page and on Seesaw. Please continue to practise them throughout the week. There will be activities uploaded next week to help you to practise your new spelling words. 

Task

Read through your spelling words. Are there any words which you are unsure of? You may want to look them up in the dictionary to find out the meaning of the words.

 

  

Geography (1 hour)

Please begin the lesson by watching THIS video from BBC about globes, maps and atlases. After, there are two tasks for you to have a go at today.

Please ask an adult before clicking on any links.

Task 1 (10 minutes)

Please visit Google Earth. You can click HERE to go to Google Earth. Spend some time today tinkering with Google Earth to locate Antarctica.

Please ask an adult before clicking on any links.

 

Task 2

Please watch THIS video all about Antarctica and the landscape you would see there. 

Please ask an adult before clicking on any links.

Next, please spend some time studying the pictures in the PowerPoint. These are also uploaded onto Seesaw for you. Please spend approximately 10 minutes on each picture. 

Using all three sources, make notes about life in Antarctica and the animals which may live there. You may want to write any questions down that you think of too or discuss the images with somebody. 

  • What does Antarctica look like?
  • What can you see? What would it be like to visit Antarctica?
  • Which animals could live in Antarctica?
