Welcome to Wednesday, Year 3!
As well as different types of words, there are also different types of sentences- often these have a unique piece of punctuation to go with them.
The four types you should have learnt in year 2 are:
Commands– a bossy sentence which can end in a full stop or exclamation
eg. Go to your room.
Questions– these ask something and always end in a question mark.
e.g What did you do this weekend?
Statements– the most common type of sentence which states something.
e.g The dog was barking at the burglar.
Exclamations– begin with what/ how and gives off strong emotion which always end in an exclamation mark.
e.g How beautiful the bird was!
Write three examples of each type of sentence based on the story. I will do a set to help you.
C- Find the Blue Jay.
Q- Where shall we put the cage?
S- When the people woke up, the world had turned blue.
E- How wonderful the world is when it is purple!
When we measure thing smaller objects, we can use cm (centimetre) or mm (millimetres).
1cm is the same as 10mm. Each time you want to convert a cm measurement just multiply the number by 10 to get the mm. Equally, if you want to convert a mm measurement to a cm divide it by 10.
For example: 12cm = 120mm 24cm = 240mm / 60mm = 6cm 130mm = 13cm
Convert these measurements into mm by multiplying by 10.
10cm = mm
18cm = mm
26cm = mm
39cm = mm
77cm = mm
Now change these mm into cm by dividing by 10.
150mm = cm
300mm = cm
80mm = cm
450mm = cm
5900mm = cm
Now that you have learnt about who Mary Anning was and why she was important, use this information below to answer questions on her.
- Where did Mary Anning find the fossils?
- What was the name of her dog?
- What do palaeontologists study?
- What replaces the skeleton of an animal to make a fossil?
- Find and copy a word that means no longer alive.
- Explain in your own words how dinosaurs became extinct.
I would like you to have a think about yourself as a learner, seeing as we are not at school it is easy to forget all of the hard work you have done to manage your own challenges, make friends and improve your concentration and listening during lessons. I want you to create a mind map listing qualities you have as a learner. You can include positive and negative factors if this is how you see yourself.
eg. You might be a good listening/ try new things/ be a little chatty/ not choose hard challenges.
These are all examples of learning behaviour. This might be tricky as we often just think about our behaviour in general (being a good friend is not linked to our learning behaviour).
Use this shape to help you, putting your name in the middle and your learning behaviours in the outer bubbles:
Take care and stay safe,
