Good morning Year 3! It's Friday!

Quick shout out to Tamyia from Team Cornflower who was on Blue Peter today! She earnt her music badge for learning the guitar. If you would like to see her then this is the link to the episode https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000jr15/blue-peter-david-walliams-and-junior-bake-off-champ She is on at 20 minutes and 20 seconds. Well done Tamyia!

Here is your learning for today.

English

Reading: Read pages 16 to 18 of Space Hunt below. We will continue to read the book next week to find out what happens to the crew of the Excelsa. Will they escape from Badlaw? Will they find the last fragment? We'll find out next week!

Today we would like you to be clarifiers. Use a dictionary or the internet to clarify the meaning of these tricky words from the story. Write a definition for each word:

landscape,   deadly,   relentless,   uncertain,   accelerate,   failure

Spelling

Today we are going to take a look at the 's' sound spelt with the letters sc.

Watch the bbc bitesize clip below and then try the activity underneath the video:

Now have a go at the activities attached below to practise spelling words with the sc spelling. There is:

• a look, say, cover, write and check sheet
• a handwriting practice sheet with sc words (choose joined up or not joined up depending on what you did at school)
• a sc word wordsearch

Maths

Subtraction today! You will be working out subtraction problems by counting backwards. Attached is a number line up to 100. The way to use the number line is to start from the biggest number in the calculation and count back to the smaller number. The number of jumps back is the difference between the numbers.

For example:

74 – 63

We start at 74 and count back to 63. Remember not to count the number you start on as a jump.

74, 73, 72, 71, 70, 69, 68, 67, 66, 65, 64, 63

1   2    3    4     5    6    7    8    9   10  11

If we make 11 jumps then the difference between 74 and 63 is 11.

Topic

The Earth

Today we will learn more about the incredible planet that we live on. The Earth is a very special planet as you will learn in these 2 videos. Watch both of these:

Now have a go at using what you have learnt from the videos to complete the fill in the gaps sheet attached below. If you get stuck, you can always go back and listen to the videos again to help you. Good luck!

Have a lovely weekend!
