Good morning, Year 3 and Year 4.

Here is your learning for today.

Maths:

Here are the answers to yesterday’s maths learning for Year 3 and Year 4.

Year 3, there are two videos to watch on this link before having a go at the activities. If you have a selection of different (current British) coins available, they could come in handy. If not, you might want to print/draw these coins to help. You may wish to print Activity 1 or it could be done straight in books. Activity 2 is done interactively.

Year 4, here is your video and the learning mentioned in the video.

Here are the answers to yesterday’s Artic journey activity.

Today, have a look at this explorer story task and using the book blurb or the story opener, write your own story about a land that you would explore or discover.

RE:

Here is a video for us to continue our learning all about Pentecost. There are 5 questions for you to answer (this is the printable if you wish but it isn’t necessary) and then, if you’d like, you can make your own paper windmill using these instructions.

Hello everyone! Here is your learning for today.

Maths

Complete the activities below.

Topic

This song is very popular at the moment. The words are below. Read along and sing the song. It has messages about being powerful, strong and confident. I hope it makes you feel that way too.

Fight Song by Rachel Platten

Like a small boat, on the ocean
Sending big waves, into motion
Like how a single word, can make a heart open
I might only have one chance but I can make an explosion

And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?

This is my fight song, take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song, my power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong, I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes, ‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

Losing friends and I’m chasing sleep
In too deep
Say I’m in too deep (in too deep)
And it’s been two years I miss my home
But there’s a fire burning in my bones
Still believe
Yeah, I still believe

And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?

This is my fight song, take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song, my power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong, I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes, ‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

A lot of fight left in me

Like a small boat
On the ocean
I might only have one chance
But I can make an explosion

This is my fight song, take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song, my power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong, I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes, ‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

Know I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me
