Then complete the activities on page 7 and 8. Page 7 is looking at the word bank. Some words have several different meanings, so you need to make sure you know the correct meaning in the sentence. Before you start it, what different meanings do you know for the word bank? Then match the descriptions to the pictures. Next look at the top of page 8 using the different meanings of ‘bank’ in sentences. Finally complete the activity for the word ‘reluctant’ at the bottom of page 8.

PSHE: This week in PHSE we are looking at the final letter in SCARF, our focus is friendship. In school we are thinking about the qualities of friendship.

First have a look at these cards which are different aspects of friendships. Sort them into which are good qualities of a friend, and bad qualities for a friend. How could you change the bad qualities to good qualities?

Then write a recipe for friendship e.g. share, take turns, be kind, play together.

Then, think about another recipe – e.g. a recipe for making up, a recipe for creating games with a friend. Type up or write up your finished recipes and send them through! Here is an example to look at: A recipe for friendship

Read or listen to the example on page 12 and the other example on page 13, then have a go at writing some of your own ideas. It could be holidays, food, houses, toys, objects; anything you like! Use the same repeating structure as the examples, but you could change the word ‘but’ for something different.

PSHE: Please keep sending photos of your child learning a new skill. We have a large board ready to display the photos and celebrate the achievement and resilience of learning new things in lockdown. The board will still be there for the children to see in September.

Resilience - Our theme in school this week is resilience. One way of thinking about being resilient is having the ability to ‘bounce back’ from difficulties. Resilience isn’t something we are born with but something we can learn. For adults and children, the Covid-19 changes will have affected our resilience and how we feel each day.

In recent years, school has had a focus on “Growth Mindset” and thinking of what we can do when we find things hard. Try some of the suggestions below.

  • Sometimes, someone might say “I can’t…” but today practice saying “I can try..." or “I’m going to try…”
  • Encourage yourself and others with positive phrases;
    • You can do it
    • Keep trying
    • You’re almost there
    • Believe in yourself
    • Don’t worry if you can’t do it straight away
    • We can learn from our mistakes 
    • Well done
    • I believe in you
  • Try some of the ideas from “Keeping Yourself Healthy Inside And Out” that we look at before. https://www.coramlifeeducation.org.uk/SCARF-home-learning-plans-set-1
  • Talk to others or get in touch with your GP if you are feeling you can’t help yourself or others “bounce back”.

English: https://www.talk4writing.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Y3-Lockdown.pdf  Closer reading: play the sound game at the top of page 21. Look and listen for ‘sound’ words in the poem, or words that are similar to sounds. Then do ‘spot the alliteration’. Look for words that start with the same sound, one after the other like: silly snakes slither. Then have a look at page 22 which talks about personification. Personification is when you describe objects like they are alive, such as the wind whispered through the trees, or the swings whistled. Look at the ideas and add more to the table. Then create some phrases or sentences on page 23 to bring the park to life!
