There are some new Grammar activities this week if you would like to have a go at them on synonyms and antonyms and conjunctions. As always try the activities first and then check your answers. You can email any work you have done to the Year 3 email address and we will put them on our website under the class Home Learning page. We would love to see what you have been doing.
Good Morning Year 3
There are some new punctuation and grammar resources below in the 'Punctuation and Grammar' this week 15.06.20, prepositions and fronted adverbials. There are also some sentence types for you to try. See if you can see if the sentences are questions, commands, exclamations or a statement? Have a go and when you have completed them check your answers with the answer sheet.
Also there is a new star 'Reading Comprehension' below which will be updated with new comprehensions for you to try at home. Level 1 is the easiest and level 3 the harder one, so choose the one you think will be best suited to you, or you could complete all 3! The answers are there for you to check once you have completed them.
Good afternoon Year 3
Apologies to those who were joining Mrs White's zoom session this morning at 10.30 am. Unfortunately the staff meeting went on longer than expected, so the zoom did not start until after 11.30 am. We will be back to the normal time next week 19.06.20 and there are more sessions being added to the schedule, the following week 22.06.20 as some of the children return to school in the following weeks. Please check the Facebook app for more details and the Home Learning page as there will be new codes to join zoom.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
Hello Year 3.
We hope you have all had a relaxing half term and have been able to enjoy spending time with your family. If you have been able to go outside for your exercise, the weather has been so warm the flowers in the garden need lots of watering. You may have continued to be interested in Science and watched Space X launch and then dock on the International Space Station. Some of you may have enjoyed being creative and we look forward to seeing what you have created.
If you have been interested in the Space X launch we have added another star at the bottom called Space where you will find some information about Space, the planets and some activities for you to try at home.
Did you know that from the 4th-10th June is Food Safety Week?
If you click on the star below for Food Safety Week you will find some information about food hygiene, a quiz, some activities and a recipe for Rock Cakes. We know that some of you have been helping around the kitchen and baking so we would love to see some of your photos of the things you have baked or work you have been doing. Why not have a try of these activities and share them to the year 3 email. Grown ups please remember if you do not wish your child to appear on the website to let us know when you email photographs.

Oxford Reading Buddy
A reminder with Oxford Reading Buddy that as well as providing books to read it is checking that your child understands what they are reading. If they select a Buddy book which has a B on it that will provide them with a quiz. Those results then feed back to us and when your child is getting over 80% on their quizzes they are ready for the programme to move them up. This online resource helps provide a wide range of books including Fiction and Non-Fiction texts and it is important for them to read as many different styles of writing as possible and show a good understanding of them.
