MESSAGE TO PARENTS/CARERS:

I have emailed all grownups in 3N this morning with updates and the Cycle 1 reports. Please can I ask all grownups to check their emails and reply as soon as possible to let me know that they have received it.

Thank you,

Miss H North

 

Happy Friday 3N!

 

Maths 

 

Let's start this morning off with some maths work. 

Today we will be finishing off our unit on addition and subtraction, ready to move onto multiplication and division next week. 

 

In today's learning, you will be exploring 3-digit subtraction again, like yesterday, however, today's questions will have an exchange (remember that this means that you have to pinch a number from next door). 

Watch the video to remind yourself and then have a go at the questions linked below.

Reading

 

Today you will be answering some comprehension questions about Chapter 1 of our new book. Re-read the first chapter below, before you begin. 

 

Remember that the text is there to help you answer the questions. Read it carefully to find the answers.

SPaG

 

Today we will be looking at verbs and nouns. Read the information below to gain more understanding or click the links below each paragraph to watch a short video.

Have a go at the activities below, which ask for you to figure out if words are nouns or verbs, and then apply these in sentences. 

Art

 

In school today we would have been learning about the Bayeux Tapestry and then creating some art around this. Let's find out what the Bayeux Tapestry is and how this links to our topic of 1066.

 

 

Your task for today's art lesson is to have a go at creating one of the scenes of the Bayeux Tapestry. I would love to see some photographs of the final tapestry. You can do this via paint, playdough, clay, a pencil sketch - it is completely up to you. I have attached one exciting method that you might want to try at home, below. 

 

You will need:

  • A long strip of paper (1 sheet of A4 cut in half down the long side.)
  • 6 tea bags
  • Warm water
  • Container
  • Paintbrush
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Black pen
  • Colouring pencils or felt tips

 

What to do:

 

  1. Soak the six tea bags in a container of warm water. Take care when handling the warm water (you may need an adult to help you with this step).
  2. Mix the tea bags in the water so that the water turns brown.
  3. Crumple up your piece of paper.
  4. Put your piece of paper into the container and use the end of a paintbrush or spoon to push it down so that it is completely covered by water.
  5. Leave the paper in the water for one minute.
  6. Take the paper out of the water and carefully straighten it out.
  7. Then, leave it to dry.
  8. Once your paper has dried, turn it landscape.
  9. Using a pencil and a ruler, draw a line along the top and bottom of your piece of paper to create borders like on the Bayeux Tapestry here:

 

  10. Use a pencil to draw diagonal lines in the borders, like in the picture above.

  11.  In-between the lines, draw different animals. (The animals in the border of the Bayeux Tapestry come from Aesop's Fables so you could draw a hare and a tortoise, a fox and a crow, a wolf, a goat or a sheep.)

  12.  In the main section of paper, draw a scene from the Bayeux Tapestry. You could use the picture above or use the internet to research other parts of the tapestry.

  13.  Below the top border, copy the writing from the section of tapestry you are drawing. (The writing on the Bayeux Tapestry is in Latin.)

  14.  Use your chosen colouring equipment to colour in your tapestry.

  15.  When you have coloured in your design, use a thick black pen to add a bold outline to your drawings, if you wish. 

 

I would LOVE to see what your tapestry looks like, so send me lots of photos to my email address holly.north@kirkleeseducation.uk. I love hearing from you!

 

I hope you all have an amazing weekend with your loved ones, and I'll speak to you on Monday. 

 

Love from Miss North
