For the rest of the week we are moving onto addition. This is a recap, we spent a lot of time in school on addition so you will need to think back to what we did. We have included lots of videos to help you as well. 



A bright, science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam-anything floating that has been washed ashore. Bottles, lost toys, small objects of every description are among his usual finds.

This is the blurb for the book - FLOTSAM


Today you need to watch the video clip and then we would like you to retell the story. Share you retold story to the blog!

Guided Reading



At the very start of Year 3 our science topic was plants – we learnt a lot in the Autumn! We’ve done a new knowledge organiser to help remind you of the things we learnt and we thought it would be nice to finish Year 3 as we started!


In 3 Blue’s classroom, we had lots of plants on the window sills and when we went into lockdown, they were left on the windowsill. They had 10 weeks of no food and no water and very little light (the blinds were never opened) Mrs Gilroy was allowed into the room before school opened up to the other year groups. Can you predict what she found?


Have a look now at the new knowledge organsier and share any questions you have on the blog.

We thought it would be interesting if you recreated the investigation we did at the very start of Year 3. You could use seeds if you have them at home, or you could try the seeds from a tomato, apple or strawberry. Or, if a grown up at home is ok with it, you could always use a plant that has already grown, in the house or outside. Just make sure you ask permission first.


For the children in school, you could try this experiment at home if you like. There are some videos to watch if you are unable to do the investigation.
