# Year 3 Weekly English and Maths – 06/07/20

## English

In English, we will spend two days reading and comprehending the text, one day on the grammar focus and two days planning, writing and editing a text.

### Text – Castles

Castles Comprehension

### Comprehension

Castles questions

### Grammar- Contractions

You can use apostrophes to show that you have omitted (left out) some letters when you are joining words together. For example, you can join the words ‘you’ and ‘are’ together. You + are = you’re. The apostrophe takes the place of the removed letters. In this example, the letter a. Sometimes, however, you need to rearrange the letters a bit when you contract the words. For example: will + not = won’t.

Using contractions like these makes your writing easier to read and more friendly

### Writing

Create your own leaflet for Alnwick Castle

### What I’m looking for:

• Features of a non fiction test (sub headings, bullet points)
• Big, bold writing to draw me in
• Description of what is there
• Persuasive language- why should I visit?
• Bright and colourful pictures

## Maths

In maths, we will spend the week focusing on a particular topic e.g. shape or place value. Activities will then be set on Mathletics that are based upon this subject.
