Writing task

Welcome back after your Easter break! I hope you have had a lovely Easter and ate lots of chocolate and enjoyed the sunshine! Today I would like you to write a recount all about it! You can write about one day over Easter where you did something exciting or you can write about more than one day. Did you have an Easter egg hunt? Eat lots of chocolate? Play with your family? Time in the garden? Riding your bike?

 

I want to know all about it! REMEMBER this is a recount there it needs to have the following things to make sure it is up to our usual year 3 standard:

  • written in the past tense
  • first person (I, my, me)
  • use varied adjectives (describing words)
  • use paragraphs to separate writing
  • capital letters and full stops
  • time conjunctions (after that, later that day, next, then, meanwhile)
  • describe emotions and feelings (excited, surprised, entertained, funny)

You guessed it! The photos above are from Nottingham city centre. The photos I showed you earlier in the week were also from Nottingham but back in the 1700’s! Hasn’t it changed so much?! 
 

Big write task

Today, I would like for you to use the modern day images of Nottingham to help you create a descriptive write. It should be as though you are there experiencing all the sights, smells, sounds etc. Imagine you are there, use the images to help you or find more on google if you need to. You could plan your writing before you start and make a list of all the things you may want to describe first e.g. noisy clattering of shoes hitting cobbled streets, scent of freshly cooked street foods etc and use these to write full descriptive sentences about Nottingham.
 

Remember to use:

  • capital letter and full stops
  • adjectives
  • adverbs e.g. (noisily, rapidly, cautiously)
  • use all 5 senses - see, hear, feel, smell, taste
  • varied sentence openers not just ‘ I could see’ ‘ I could smell’
  • paragraphs
  • try to join that handwriting!

 

 

Maths arithmetic- have a go at calculating mentally but if you need to use a method to work it out then that’s fine too! I wonder how long it will take you to complete all 15?

Let’s end the week with a quick and easy science experiment! See if you can have a go at home and explain to someone in your house what is happening and why.
