Apologies for the cancellation of last week's Zoom meeting- this was due to unforeseen technical difficulties. We will Zoom for one final time, this Wednesday (15th July) and can discuss last week's comprehension task. See you then!

Have a go at this one- solution posted Thursday.

Topic: Extreme Earth


We begin a new topic! In it, we will learn about the destructive powers of nature, from volcanoes and earthquakes to tsunamis and tornadoes. Through information and practical tasks, we will learn about how and why these natural phenomena occur, and the ways in which they affect people and the environment.











At this point in the school year, we would ordinarily be undertaking a unit of work about communicating, which is perfect for our lives at the moment! As such, it would be great if you could have a think about the role of email.

Have a look at the picture below, explaining how email works:

Please then think about and discuss the rules for email using the below document:

If you have an email account, why not try drafting and sending an email to a friend or family member? I would love to here about how you get on.

Use the following guide to help, if you wish:


Scratch activities

Of course, you can continue to add to our class account of Scratch projects. I have saved a number of new ones in there which you could remix and tweak to make your own. Or use the guides below to code from, er, SCRATCH!

Well done to James and Eddie for some fantastic coding on our Year 3 Scratch account! Great stuff!


Use this time at home to explore music: listen to radio and make a note of pieces and songs you particularly like and why, use tablet apps such as 'GarageBand' to learn to play virtual instruments and even have a go at composing your own songs!

Ms Heap's music for Year 3

Ms Heap, our Music teacher from ArtForms has provided us with a home learning Music lesson!

Introduction to Opera

Why not use this time to take yourselves on a totally new musical journey? Have a watch of the following video about what Opera music is and how it is performed:


Take the opportunity to explore Musical History via our St Urban's Music page:


There are plenty of opportunities to get up and get moving, during your time at home. Join Joe Wicks on YouTube every morning at 9 with his 'Body Coach' live-streamed PE session to start the day in the right way! Also, why not have a go at making your own 'Wake up, shake up' choreography to your favourite song?

Have a go at these PE challenge cards- adapted especially for use at home, during this time:

Leeds Rhinos PE Challenges


Continuous Line Drawing

Have a go at some continuous line drawing! Continuous line drawings are made by keeping the pen or pencil in contact with the paper for the duration of the exercise, and by matching speed of looking with speed of drawing.


Why not visit an art gallery? No, I don't mean breaking lockdown rules, I mean visit a VIRTUAL art gallery! Have an amble around the following:

If you've had a good explore and are left feeling inspired, why not set up your own 'gallery' of artwork in your home? Or build your own virtual art gallery on Minecraft and screenshot it to send to me- I'd love to see them!
