Greenmount -

a Pathway to Success

Monday, 27th April

Hi Year 3,

I hope that you have all had a nice weekend.  The weather has been kind again, so I hope that you managed to get at least some time outside.

Today's tasks are as follows-


Today I would like you to do some comprehension.  I have provided you with some information on a man called Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person to reach the peak (top) of Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world.  Use your VIPERS skills to help you answer the questions.  This is something that you have impressed me with this year.


  *   This week we are going to start some more work on time.  This is really to act as revision, as telling the time is so important for our everyday lives.  Although we will have covered most of this in class, as this week and next week continue, we will be starting to go over some of the harder things.  Today should be a gentle introduction, reading the time to the nearest five minute.  Remember, if you are good at time, which a lot of you are, you can start with sheet two and see how far you can get!

Don't forget to keep your times tables ticking over.  If you have time, you can start to think about World War Two and see if you can find out some information on things like-

(1) Why did World War Two start for Britain?
(2) What was the Battle of Britain?
(3) What was the Blitz?
(4) Which cities were bombed during the Blitz?
(5) How were children who lived in these cities protected?
(6) How did other people protect themselves when bombs started to fall?
(7) Why did houses and other buildings have to have blackout curtains?
(8) What was VE Day?

Next week we shall be doing a mini-project on World War Two, as part of the commemorations for the 75th anniversary of VE (Victory in Europe) Day, so our work next week will look slightly different.

Take care!

Mr G
