ROMAN VILLAS DT PROJECT!!!
It has been great being back in class together again. We have been very busy making Roman Villas from all the boxes that were sent in to school. A huge thank you to everyone that did.

Good morning Y3. I hope you are all ok. Thank you so much for joining in our Google Meet last Friday. It was lovely to see so many of you. Today should be our last day working from home and we should all be back together in class tomorrow.
Task's for today...
Today I would like you to read two rags to riches WAGOLLS. Choose the story you like the most and then break it down in to the story structure, so that you can be ready to plan your own story tomorrow.
During the Google Meet I was asked if you could do some times tables. I have got for you multiplication colouring. Do them carefully please. Click here for the sheets.
I know lots of you want to do some Science experiments so here is a website which has lots of great ideas for you to try out. Look carefully at what the experiments ask you to do. Think like a Scientist (look over the work you did last week), what will you be testing? What do you think the outcome will be?
I look forward to seeing what you find out. Click here for the website.
Make sure you have put together all of your work from the past week to bring into school tomorrow. Write up your reading diary and put all your books in your reading pack. Watch a movie, go outside and play, eat a treat, hug your family. xxx
