We are also going to be using the phrases ‘I have…’ and ‘I don’t have…’.

Miss Johnson & Miss Cook’s Group:

 

This week we are continuing to building up to writing our rainforest reports using all of the information we have learned about rainforests. We were so impressed with your animal fact files and we know we are going to be amazed by your reports too. 
 
In this lesson, we are going to focus on fronted adverbials. Firstly, we are going to have a think of different types of fronted adverbials and then we are going to use a thesaurus to find some alternative fronted adverbials.  

 

Watch this video to re-cap your knowledge of fronted adverbials:

Remember, fronted adverbials can be sorted into adverbials that tell us ‘how’, ‘where’ or ‘when’ something happens.  Can you help sort the fronted adverbials on sheet 1 into the correct columns. This is a starter task and should only take 15 minutes.  
 
Once you have sorted the fronted adverbials. Watch Miss Johnson’s video below which introduces task 2 for the lesson.

RE: 

Hello Year 3, 

It is Mrs Lockley here with this week's RE learning. Have a look at the video below and then have a go at completing the activity sheet.  

 
Key Question: What do Jewish people remember during Passover? 

Activity 1- Watch this film clip of the ten plagues of Egypt. 

The 10 Plagues of Egypt - Exodus 1-11

Think About: What was passed over in the final plague? 

 

This is why it is called the Passover. 

 

Activity 2- During the Passover, Jewish people have a special meal called a seder. Read the next page to find out all about this special meal and what each food item represents. 

 

I would like you to label the food on the plate with the correct Jewish name, thinking about what this represents.
