SC3: I can sort shapes according to their properties.

Watch the tutorial for the lesson today and to find out about the activities you need to do.



ACTIVITY 1: sort the shapes into the Carroll diagram

ACTIVITY 2: complete the table counting faces, edges, vertices etc.

EXTENSION: if you want to or if you have time, complete the challenge at the bottom of activity sheet 2.


Break time/snack time

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!

Yu need to keep your body active so that your brain can keep active too.

LO: to know how to punctuate direct speech accurately

SC1: I can write and punctuate direct speech

SC2: I can infer a character’s personality through the words they speak

SC3: I can use interesting reporting clauses to help build a picture of characters

Watch the tutorial to find out about punctuating direct speech and the activity you are doing today.



ACTIVITY 1: create a spider diagram with as many different words for said as you can. You could google ‘synonyms for said’ or use a thesaurus to help you.


ACTIVITY 2: Use your notes from yesterday to write the story scene including dialogue, using accurate dialogue punctuation and a new line for each new speaker.

Extension/Challenge - offer clues about character through their dialogue. How does the character’s personality come through with the language they use and the manner and tone with which they speak?

Before you send it in, check your punctuation and layout and make any changes needed.

Dear Year 3,
Please look at the worksheet and read through all of the statements.
Communication is vital hence it is so important to practice building your communication skills.
Try and remember as many strategies as you can and use them at home ready for when you return to school.
Have fun!
Warm Regards

Art Project


As explained yesterday, we are going to continue researching and experimenting with different types of geometric art. Today we will be looking more closely at printing.

Task 1: On an A4 piece of paper/ document on your computer (your choice!) create a mood/ ideas board with images and information about geometric printing. You could include some of your favourite designs, the names of any famous printers, details about what materials are used, and anything else you discover that you’d like to add! See my attached example ‘Printing Mood/ Ideas Board’.

Different techniques explained

Meet and watch a printmaker

How to print like Warhol (scroll down to the bottom of this page for lots of information on different techniques that you could try!)

A printmaker’s experience of lockdown

Printmaking in Geometric Islamic Art

Task 2: Use your research to create your own geometric print. You could use paper, junk, vegetables (or other objects that are good for making a print), household objects (take a photo!) or anything you can think of! Remember your print could be tiny, medium or big, as long as it includes some geometry or repeating patterns, and this isn’t your final project so you don’t need to spend ages (unless you want to!) – it’s just a chance to try it out.

2.15 – 2.30
