Monday is …….

…..Gymnastics, Guided Reading and Geography.

In Gymnastics we are going to extend the sequences from two people to four people in each group but still with the theme of symmetry.

Guided Reading is with the Potato group and in Geography we are going to try and fill the United Kingdom map full of human and physical features…..and try and make sure that they are all in the same place.

Don’t forget, you can get started and be ready for Geography by adding your information to Y3’s Padlet.

Monday 12th January

Hello Y3, It’s back to normal Monday afternoon tomorrow. 

Our three activities will be, Guided Reading, Geography and PE……as well as KS2 Assembly….lots to do and so little time.

Because it is a new term I’ll be reading with a different group. We’ll find out tomorrow which group it is.

PE, is indoor and it is gymnastics and going over the activities you did with Miss Lewis Brown last term which was symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes

Your task will  be to:

Your sequence should show clear changes of speed. Link 3 different balances with 3 different ways of travelling.

Work with a partner to create a sequence.  From your starting shape move together by e.g. travelling on hands and feet, rolling, jumping. Then you must move apart to finish. Your sequence should contain 4 elements and you must travel in an “L” shaped pathway.

Symmetry and Asymmetry are words that are ideas that are used a lot in Mathematics. Watch this video from the BBC to find out how gymnastics and mathematics are perfect partners.

For Geography we will be looking at the human and physical features of the United Kingdom.

If you are not sure of the difference between human and physical Geography then look through this Slideshare presentation.

Then we are going to use this presentation to do some human and physical investigations using atlases and, hopefully, iPads.

If everything gets done, Y3 will have worked, very , very hard!
