Hello, Year 3!



Count how many consonants or vowels the sentences have in them. I have identified which you will be looking at for each sentence.

  • Libby created posters for her pet giraffe.                                            Vowels =
  • She went to the park and waited patiently.                                         Consonants=
  • The neighbours looked worried for her but couldn’t help.               Vowels =
  • Suddenly, her giraffe appeared behind the climbing frame!            Consonants=



Write these hundred, tens and ones numbers in words. Focus on your spelling and remember it is one hundred not a hundred.

Eg.  153     = One hundred and fifty three

243,      719,        172,       403,      513,         699,       785



Some of the surrounding tribes in jungles create their own fabrics to wear which are bright and colourful with intricate patterns on. The symbolic patterns represent the culture’s beliefs and history. There is a lot of meaning in the way the patterns are arranged and they often represent the wisdom of a tribe. They also act as a record of the events and daily activities of that tribe.

Common patterns include parallel zigzags which are used to remind the artist and the user that the path in life is never straightforward but instead, is often difficult to travel.

In Ghana, the Ashanti tribes apply motifs to fabric, pottery and paper that have symbolic significance and tell a story.

Here are some examples:


Today’s task is to design your own tribal fabric. You might want to continue to research the colours and patterns used by the Ashanti tribe to give you some inspiration. Make sure it is bright and colouring, however, if you don’t have any colours at home then make your work detailed.


Take care and stay safe,
