Good Morning Year 3!


How are you all? I hope you are all eager to start the learning this ‘Thinking Thursday’!


Today, I have prepared a homophone challenge for you. There is a word mat at the back to help you, if needed. Please spend about 15 minutes working through the first three pages (the Understand, Challenge, Test and Explain slides), then take a quick movement break. The last 'Apply' challenge is asking you to write a poem using homophones. I look forward to seeing your creative thinking with this. Please spend around 5-10 minutes planning it, and then another 10 minutes writing it out carefully.


It is especially important that you check your learning through when you have finished. You could try to mark any improvements you want to make with a purple pencil (or another coloured pencil), just like we do at school. Even the most famous writers need to make improvements to their first attempts or drafts of their writing. Mistakes are part of everyone’s learning journey.


The extra activity asks you to have a go at sketching your home. Please take your time with this and try some of the different techniques suggested. Please do let me know how you get on. It is always great to hear from you.


And, we also have Day 3 of the Maths Problems of the Day. Please talk these puzzles through with your household and enjoy the extra brain exercise!


Wishing you a very happy ‘Thinking Thursday’!
