Welcome to the Class Page for Year 3 2020/21
Hello to our lovely Year 3 and their families!
If you are currently learning from home, this is where we will add our links and activities each week. They will mirror the work we cover in school but please don't panic! You don't have to do everything, just enjoying doing what you can together.
Your English homework, Maths homework and spellings will still be posted on Seesaw every Monday afternoon. Below are the links for times tables and reading at home but you will also find them on Seesaw:
It would be lovely if you could share your work with us via Seesaw or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can take a look on Twitter @AshKnotty to see what we've been up to in class each week too!
Take care and keep smiling!

Week 1: 7.6.21
Ocean Awareness Day
Next Monday, we are celebrating World Ocean Day (even though this isn't the official day).
Because Year 3/4 are the driving force behind this in school, we are going to do some research on what the day is and why it is important in the calendar.
Here are some handy links that will help you:
1. Firstly, we are looking for the children to write a letter to the parents of Knotty Ash School to bring to their attention what World Ocean Day is and why we are choosing to focus on it next Monday in school. The letter needs to explain that the children need to come in to school wearing blue clothes, and that the day will be filled full of fun and factual activities all around the protection of our oceans. you could even choose to throw a competition in to try to entice people to dress up more.
2. Secondly, we are designing posters to advertise our Ocean Day next week. The poster needs to have all the key information from above; most importantly, the day, wearing blue etc.
3. Following on from your letter, create a TV advert for the day to get the word out to everyone about why this day is so important.We are going on to Youtube initially, to watch some adverts (things like McDonald's, chocolate, toys etc). We are then writing down the things we need in an advert (bright, eye-catching, have a slogan, be bubbly etc).
Then we are going to film our own adverts in order for us to use them to generate more interest in World Ocean Day on Monday 14th June.

Y3 & 4: BLACK LIVES MATTER
No doubt you have seen images or heard about current events in America. People have been protesting and rioting due to the killing of a black man named George Floyd. We have put together some information so you can understand this a little more and maybe understand why it is all happening. We have also set you a challenge at the end!
