A huge thank you to everyone who made it to our music concert on Monday. We hope you enjoyed it.

On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to watch the pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk.MVIMG_20191210_143055

In English, we finished reading The Pebble in my Pocket, following the journey of a pebble over 450 million years ago from lava in a volcano to the present day.A1Uge+XbtjL

We also learned about subordinate conjunctions and clauses, coming up with our own sentences about volcanoes using the conjunctions when, if and because. Watch this video (up until 1:23) to remind yourselves of what subordinate clauses are.

Instead of spelling homework this week, you will need to add extra detail to the simple sentences below by adding a different subordinate clause from the options here for each one.

ISAWAWABUB

    1. I am looking forward to Christmas.
    2. I like to play outside.
    3. Read every day at home.
    4. Practise your times tables.
    5. It will be great to come back to school in the new year.

Copy the first part of the sentence out in your book and complete by adding a subordinate clause, using one of the subordinating conjunctions above. Try and use a different one each time.

 

For example:

  1. I am looking forward to Christmas although I will miss coming to school.

 

Extension:

Rewrite each sentence with the subordinate clause at the start:

Although I will miss coming to school, I am looking forward to Christmas.

Don’t forget the comma!

Talent show

A huge well done to everyone who was courageous enough to audition for the talent show this week. There were so many great acts and the votes were very close but the acts from year 3 going through to grand final are: Ezekiel and his incredible dancing, Daisy and Belle doing terrific tap, and Margot and Rosie singing their comedic take on the song Last Christmas.

Non-uniform day

Don’t forget that next Friday, the last day of term, is a non-uniform day so feel free to come in in your most festive gear. Don’t forget to bring £1 to donate to charity.
