Week 1

Below are some pictures of children hard at work this week. We have been sent lots of pictures of Iron Man sequels, maths work and positive notes to keep us going too!

Monday's positive quote:


Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars.

Tuesday's positive quote:

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.

David Walliams is releasing a new audio book each day for free on his website. It is a great opportunity to sit down and relax with some juice and biscuits!

Wednesday's positive quote:


Be brave. Be creative. Be kind. Be thankful. Be happy. Be you.

Why not give shadow drawing a go today? Place your paper and objects in the sun, just like the one below and get creative. Don't forget to send us your finished drawings!
Below is a link to Nottingham Forest's Bostock who is reading a bedtime story. Follow the Nottingham Forest Facebook page, as we are pretty sure these will be uploaded daily.

Thursday's positive quote


Always believe something wonderful is about to happen.


Good morning Year 3!

Today we are only setting you 1 task as we want you to really concentrate on it. Today you will be writing the beginning of your story, you will be setting the scene by using interesting vocabulary to make your reader want to read more. I have attached a picture of somethings you should think about before writing and an idea of how I planned mine before writing. 


Think about

-Who are your character?

-Where is the beginning of your story set?

-What is going to happen? (why should your reader read on?)

-Any key vocabulary you want to include (think about synonyms for Year 1 words)


Below is also an example of one I have started to write. Yours can be similar to mine or completely different- it is up to you!



The day started like any other day, with Cinderella completing household jobs for her malicious stepsisters and her even crueller stepmother. At 11 O’clock on the dot, there was a knock on the grand, wooden door. Cinderella knew instantly who it was. She rushed to door and opened it, greeting the postman with a cheery grin.

“Just one letter today” beamed the postman as he handed over a thick, golden envelope to Cinderella.


Use this story mat help sheet to help you with your sentence starters and key vocabulary.

Why not try these activities today:


1. Draw/ paint/ collage a picture of a rainbow to make people smile as they walk past and brighten their mood. It is also a great opportunity to say thank you to the NHS workers who have been working especially hard to help everyone who needs it.

2. Create a bucket list jar with your family.

We know that there are things you wish you could do, but at the minute you can't such as go to the park or have dinner at your friend's house. Every time you wish you could go somewhere, see someone, treat yourself, visit a new place etc write it down on a piece of paper and pop it into a jar. When everything is back to normal (which it will be!) you can look forward to opening each of these and feel grateful for everything you have.


Friday's positive quote:

Happy Friday Year 3!


Today your only task is to complete the build up to your adventure story. Make sure you think about:


-What your problem/challenge is going to be so you can build up to it

- Are there going to be any changes to the setting? How will you travel to this different setting?

What can you see?


Below is a WAGOLL to the build up of an adventure story following on from the opening.


As quick as a flash, Cinderella opened the envelope. Before she had a chance to read it, one of her wicked stepsisters snatched it out of her hand. “To the ball? There is not a chance you are going!”, screamed the ugly sister. With her head in her hands, Cinderella started to sob. How would she ever be able to go to the ball?


A few days passed and Cinderella began to think about how she was going to make it to the ball. Before her eyes, a fairy Godmother appeared. "You shall go the ball!", she shouted and gave Cinderella the most beautiful dress and shoes. 


See if you can use a fronted adverbial in your writing, just like the ones that are in red!


Why not give this indoor scavenger hunt a go? You could copy out the checklist and tick off the items once you've found them!
