wb 15.6.2020 Home Learning Week 10
Hello Confident Chameleons!
Welcome to Week 10 of home learning! Time is passing by so quickly and I can't believe how long it's been since I've seen most of you! I'm missing you all lots but am so proud of you as always! I hope that you've all enjoyed the lovely weather that's returned over the weekend and, once again, made the most of being outdoors in your gardens and on outdoor walks with your families. This week, your home learning continues with our topic of the Anglo-Saxons and also involves some learning about the Midsummer Solstice - can you believe we're almost at the longest day of the year? Thank you to everyone who emailed in again last week, it was fabulous to see so many great pictures. I was especially impressed with the imaginative Anglo-Saxon villages that had been made! Please send pictures again this week as it's lovely to hear from you all. Have a lovely week, enjoy your learning and continue to be the superstars that you are!

Maths this week will continue recapping fractions again (I'm sorry!). However I think this will then be the last week of this for the year . Use the worksheets below & the videos on the White Rose Maths website Monday-Wednesday and then for Thursday and Friday, please complete the BBC Bitesize Maths activities for Year 3. As well as this, don't forget to log on to TTRS and Mathletics. A huge well done to those of you who have already got your activities down to zero! If you haven't done this yet, give it a go!
This week's writing task is linked to our topic learning. In History and RE this week, you will be learning about Anglo-Saxon beliefs. We know that before converting to Christianity, Anglo-Saxons believed in many gods and goddesses. We would like you to write a myth about one of the gods. We can't wait to read your amazing myths! As well as this, we would like you to log on to Spelling Shed to practise this week's spellings, read a book on Bug Club and complete the Reading Comprehension - 60 Second Reads (which are on myths), and as always, remember to read your favourite stories at home too!
Continuing to link with our Anglo-Saxon work, this week's History learning is about Anglo-Saxon beliefs and religion, most specifically about their conversion from Pagan beliefs to Christianity, which happened over a period of approximately 100 years. As part of this learning, you will find out about the Saints influential to this change and some of the Christian buildings they founded, which were and still are important to the religion: Canterbury Cathedral, Iona Abbey and Lindisfarne Priory.
As we are approaching the Midsummer Solstice, this week at school, we would have been learning about Ancient British beliefs as part of our R.E. work. Once you have learnt more about what the Midsummer Solstice is and why it is still a part of our calendar, there are lots of activities which allow your creative juices to flow. These include making a model of Stonehenge, making a sun burst weave and even doing some yoga! I realise that there's a lot of different suggested activities, so feel free to have a go at the ones which will interest you the most!
