Good Morning Year 3!
It was my cats birthday yesterday, he was 3 years old!!
Please spend 10 minutes on TT Rockstars.
Today you are comparing lengths. This involves finding which lengths are bigger or smaller. There are a couple of ways you can show this:
You may be asked to put them in an order on a number line.
You may be asked to use your crocodile symbols < > or =. Remember, the open mouth of the crocodile is where the bigger number goes e.g. 2cm < 7cm

Questions 5 and 6 are quite tricky to do at home. So what I would like you to do is instead of completing questions 5 and 6, use the table on question 5 and measure some of your toys/teddies at home and put their heights into order.
Question 4 and 7 are challenging today, see if you can give them a go!

Look at your list of 'ous' words from the beginning of the week, can you add anymore to this?
I would like you to pretend you are on an adventure in the jungle. I would like you to write a SHORT diary entry (only needs to be a few sentences) about what you saw, but I would like you to use as many 'ous' words as you can! You can let me know on dojo how many you manage to use if you like!
Here are some more 'ous' words that you may like to use!

Whole Class Writing Task
Today I would like you to complete the activity at the bottom of page 12. All of you have been experts at using fronted adverbials in school so I don't doubt that you will have some awesome sentences. You will be using fronted adverbials at the beginning of your sentences to show WHEN something happened. Remember, always put a comma after your fronted adverbial.
Use your 4 sentences from yesterday, and write them again but putting a different fronted adverbial in them each time.
Science - Animals including Humans
Last week you looked at nutrition for humans, this week you are going to look at the types of skeletons in humans and animals. I have put on a short powerpoint below with some information on, but here are the main key terms:
Vertebrate: An animal (and all humans) that has a backbone/spine
Invertebrate: An animal that doesn't have a backbone/spine
Types of skeleton:
Endoskeleton: (all vertebrates have this) is where the skeleton is on the inside of their bodies, as they grow the skeleton grows.
Exoskeleton: (some invertebrates e.g. spider, lobsters, crabs) is where an animal has the skeleton on the outside of its body.
Hydrostatic skeleton: (some invertebrates e.g. slug, worm, jellyfish) is where an animal doesn't have bones.
See if you can have a go at sorting these animals into the correct columns. I have put the powerpoint and sheet in PDF underneath incase you wanted to print (or just write it out in your books), it also includes the answers if you would like to check afterwards. If you are printing, it is the very first sheet you want to print.
