ENGLISH - To punctuate a text

Write out the following extract from Stig of the Dump in your books. However all the punctuation has been left out. You will need to use add in the capital letters, full stops and some commas.

 

if you went too near the edge of the chalk pit the ground would give way barney had been told this often enough everybody had told him his grandmother had told him every time he came to stay with her his sister had told him every time she wasn’t telling him something else

 

today was one of those days when there was nothing to do nothing to play and nowhere to go the only thing to do on a day like this was to go to the chalk pit

 

barney climbed through the rickety fence and went to the edge of the pit he crawled through the rough grass and peered over the edge the sides of the pit were white chalk with line of flints poking out at the top was crumbly brown earth and the roots of the trees that grew on the edge

 

Then underline all the nouns in red and all the verbs in green.

 

MATHS - Fractions

Have a go at Week 1 - Lesson 3 "tenths" from here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

There is a video to explain it to you, then some questions and afterwards the answer sheet for you to check your answers.

 

RE

Read the Gethsemane story from Mark's Gospel.

 

When they reached the place called Gethsemane, Jesus said to his apostles, “Sit here while I go

over there to pray.”

He took Peter, James and John with him. He was very frightened and he said to them, “My heart

is ready to break. I’m so terrified of what is going to happen to me. You wait here and stay awake.”

He went a little further on, threw himself on the ground and prayed. “Father,” he said, “You can

do anything. Take this suffering from me. But I will do what you want, not what I want.”

He came back and found his friends asleep and he said to Peter, “Simon are you asleep? Could you

not stay awake even for one hour? Stay awake and pray.”

He went away once more and prayed saying the same words. Then he came back and found them

asleep again. They could not keep their eyes open, and they did not know what to say to him.

When he came back a third time he said to them, “You can sleep on now and have your rest. The

hour has come. I am going to be betrayed and handed over to violent people. Get up! Let us go!

My betrayer is not very far away.”

He was still speaking when Judas, one of the twelve apostles came with some soldiers. They were

armed with swords and sticks. They had been sent by the chief priests, the teachers of the law and

the elders. Judas had said to them, ‘The one I kiss is the one you want. Arrest him and make sure

he is well guarded as you lead him away’.

As soon as Judas arrived, he went up to Jesus and said, “Rabbi,” and kissed him.

Then they took hold of Jesus and arrested him.

 

Answer these questions:

  1. How did Jesus feel when he got to the garden of Gethsemane? What did he do?
  2. Why do you think Jesus took his disciples with him and why did he ask them to stay awake?
  3. What do you think about how the disciples behaved and why?
  4. How do you think Jesus felt when his betrayer arrived with the soldiers?

ENGLISH - Write a newspaper report

Imagine you are a newspaper reporter. You are sent to Sevenoaks to report on some strange goings on.

 Choose one of the following ideas to write your article about, or use your own idea!

  • A boy says he has found a caveman living in a pit. Who is he? Where is the pit? What is in the pit? What do the local people think?
  • Local people have noticed their possessions have been going missing. Police find them all in a pit. Who lives in this pit? Why are they here?
  • Lou calls the newspaper to tell them her brother, Barney, has gone mad! He thinks he’s found a new friend called Stig! Investigate this. Who is Stig? What does Barney have to say?

Decide on a bold headline for your report. Write your report in paragraphs. You can include a picture with a caption.

Have a go at Week 1 - Lesson 2 "Making the whole" from here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

There is a video to explain it to you, then some questions and afterwards the answer sheet for you to check your answers.

 

RE

Read this scripture from Matthew's Gospel and a "New way of living".

When he saw the crowds Jesus went up the mountain and sat down. His disciples gathered round him and this is what he taught them. You will be blessed when you have an open and generous heart.

When you share what you have with other people God will be very close to you.

You will be blessed when you reach out to those who grieve.

When you make friends with those who are sad and lonely, God will be there to comfort you.

You will be blessed when you are gentle.

When you treat others with kindness and patience God will give you all you need.

You will be blessed when you work for justice. When you respect and stand up for the rights

of others, God will give you life to the full.

You will be blessed when you forgive others and don’t hold grudges. You will find God ready to forgive you.

You will be blessed when you desire what is good.

When you always search for what is good, you will find God in all around you. You will be blessed when you are a peacemaker. When you try not to let a quarrel even begin or are first to say sorry you will be known as children of God.

You will be blessed when you are made fun of for doing what God wants. When people laugh at you for living in God’s way, know that you are very close to God.

Remember what happened to so many of God’s messengers. Rejoice and be glad.

 

You could also watch this video clip about this message that Jesus gave.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ze7w3-BL3OM

 

Activity 1 - Answer these questions:

  1. What do you think a generous heart is?
  2. What does it mean to be gentle?
  3. Why is it important to forgive?
  4. Why are peacemakers important?
  5. What new way of living and giving have you thought of this Lent?

 

Activity 2 - I have underlined and put in bold some of the words. Write examples of how you can demonstrate these qualities, for example "I can have a generous heart by giving to a charity".

 

Take a listen to this song which is all about these new rules for living, also known as the Beattitudes:

23 March Spellings

Dear parents,

Over the time that school is closed I will be regularly updating our class web page with tasks for your children to work on. I have sent home a learning pack today. Below is also a resource pack of activities for you to download.

The School recommends at least 1 hour of English and 1 hour of Maths daily. A reading session should be in addition to this. Each class page has the curriculum being studied, so children can look up the topics they are studying in class. Please check the class page daily for work, links or videos, which will be updated regularly.

Best wishes,

 

Mr Mount
