Whole Class READING TASK on Purple Mash Clean Sweep in Serial Mash Emeralds. Please read this book and complete the online tasks at the end of each chapter. I have set the first chapter as a 2do so you know where to find it. You have two weeks to complete this reading.


Final week for KENT POSTER Please send me a photo of your work by Friday.


It is nearly end of term and I sense motivation is waning so this week there are a lot of videos included in plans so keep working hard only not long until the end of Year Three.


Like previous weeks do not worry if you do not complete all the tasks, I know some children work faster than others. Note some tasks are optional which means you don’t have to do them.


Here are your tasks for this week 6/7/20


·         Daily Reading

·         Times tables or number bond practice www.topmarks

·         Practise READING THE TIME Purple mash, click on HOME then go to MATHEMATICS, TOPICS, TIME has differentiated tasks for all levels.

· Watch daily news


Final Edition of RABBIT TIMES will be uploaded this week so this is your last chance to showcase any photos or work on the website.


This week’s plans include lots of tasks linked to orangutans. If you like this topic you may want to find out more about other endangered species. has a whole unit in Keystage2 English. This website has plenty of useful information.

I am sure lots of you have animal books so this is the month to read them.




English linked to Geography


Session 1  An example of how animals are at risk                                                                                                                                            Watch and understand the animation clip

 Read and recognise some  film and poetic features                                                                          

Click on the above link to hear me talk you through this session. There's an Rang-tan in my bedroom! Help, before we all become extinct.

Rang Tan' is an educational film made by Greenpeace to educate people about the destruction of the rainforests due to human intrusion, primarily from the Palm Oil manufacturers. 

Watch the animation about a girl who finds a orangutan in her bedroom. This video is sending a message to everyone who watches it.


Session 2 

To write a dialogue Recap features of writing speech

No more instructional videos from me this week.

Read the poem again to remind yourself of what was said, now create a dialogue between the girl and the orangutan. short animation to recap speech marks

Use ENGLISH DIALOGUE TASK SHEET to remind you of the features.



Session 3 Work people are doing to save orangutans who have lost their homes.                                                                               

Research orangutans and dictionary work

Watch some videos about orangutans David Attenborough and the amazing DIY orangutans. Watch how they can imitate humans. Peanut the Adorable 15 Month Old Orangutan Baby | Meet The Orangutans orphaned orangutans learn to climb.


“This tiny baby is almost certainly an orphan because his mother would never have simply abandoned him in the forest. Baby orangutans stay with their mothers until they are seven or eight years old.”                                                                                                                           

Watch this video which contains lots of facts about orangutans.

Why is it important that they learn to climb? Give two reasons.

Develop your vocabulary by checking you know the meaning of all the words on list.  See VOCABULARY BANK SHEET read through this list before you watch videos as you may be able to work out the meaning from film.

Still waiting for photos of last week’s investigation!

To compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials Animation of mice using magnets

This week is all about magnets. In school we would have a large box full of different magnets. So you need to go on a hunt around your house and see if you’ve got any Fridge magnets, magnetic calendars on a radiator, a magnetic window sponge, a game…                                       Super powerful magnets watch and find out how useful magnets are in real life.

Task 1 Magnet hunt around your house to see if you’ve got any   How do magnets help in a scrapyard                                      

Task 2  predict and check                                                                                           Sort some objects into magnetic and non-magnetic e.g. aluminium foil, foil packaging, metal containers, pans, storage tins, safe metal tools, spoons, bearings, metal clips, screws, metal jewellery, paper, card, polythene, fabric, wood, plastic toys, leaves, shells, fir cone                                                                                                                                         All you need to do is choose  about 12 objects and then sort them into 2 groups magnetic or non-magnetic. Then if you found a magnet check by putting it near each object to see if it can make it move.  

Task 3   What have all magnetic objects got in common?                                                                 Watch the next video Magnets and magnetic force                       Watch this video and see if you can find the answers to these questions                                                                 What are the 2 ends of a magnet called?                                                                                       How does a compass?                                                                                                               When two magnets pull together they a______.                                                                                        When two magnets push away from each other they r__________
