Good Morning Year 3!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for another marvellous Monday!
You may have heard on the news about the demonstrations that have been taking place here in the UK and in the United States of America. It is important for us as a school to talk about events that happen around the world and sometimes these might be a bit worrying. Our world is not perfect but always remember, we can make a difference. With love and compassion, we can all build an even more beautiful world. Today’s guided reading task is about the inspirational Ruby Bridges. She is a civil rights activist who, at six years old, made history by becoming the first African-American child to attend a previously all-white school following desegregation. This resource may make you feel sad but it’s important to learn about the struggles people have faced and how they overcame them. You should always speak with the adults who care for you if something upsets you; and we also want you to know that everyone at school is here to talk if you’re ever worried about anything. If you would like to discuss what you have learnt, then know that we are all here for you and we’re all on this learning journey together
Today is also World Oceans Day and I thought you might like to learn a little more about the artwork of Mandy Barker. She collects plastics from the seas, oceans and beaches from all over the world and makes pictures with them. Your extra activity is to try and make some artwork with leftover plastics.
There are new spellings for you to learn and practice this week. Remember, to try to write these out at least once a day in the boxes provided. A little and often practice will make the learning pathways in your brain remember them for longer.
And, we also have Day 4 of the Maths Problems of the Day. Please talk these puzzles through with your household and enjoy the extra brain exercise!
I hope you have a marvellous Monday. Please do email in your news and learning. I really do love to hear from you.
