Good Morning Year 3!
I hope you had a lovely weekend! I didn’t get up to much so here is a picture I took with my cat honey! She was very naughty and went off for 5 days last week!! I was so glad when she came home!
Please complete 10 minutes of TT Rockstars.
Today you are looking at measuring lengths (recapping from what we learnt in school before), so you may need your ruler today!

Remember, when you are measuring using a ruler, you must start on 0cm. The little lines between the 0cm and 1cm are called millimeters (mm). There are 10mm in 1cm. So in 2cm, there would be 20mm.

We are carrying on with our 'journey to the jungle' work booklet! We are onto page 10 today. You may want to refer to the jungle log back on page 3 and look at what you have done so far to remind yourselves of the context. You now need to imagine you have gone through the wardrobe and are now in the jungle! The explorer hands you his microscope and asks what you can see! I would like you on page 10 to draw what you would see through that telescope in the jungle.
*An extra challenge I would like you to complete: Around the circle on page 10, after you have drawn what you can see through the telescope, can you think of any powerful adjectives to describe what you can see?
Here is a picture of the page, the work booklet is also in a pdf underneath. This can be completed in the work booklet if you have printed, or just in your books.
Morse code was a type of communication during WW2. It was a way of sending messages without actually using words. It has its own alphabet that is made up of either short/long sounds or light. Below I have put what each letter of the alphabet would look like in Morse code. The dots would be short sounds/flashes, and the lines would be long ones. I would like you to have a go at translating some of the messages below. On the PDF at the very bottom is also the answers.
