Welcome to 3SM.
Hi 3SM, I hope you are all doing well and are able to access these online resources.

English (22-06-2020) Poetry
This week, we are learning about poetry. Do you know any poems? What do you know about poetry?
Poetry is a text type that might focus on feelings, thoughts or ideas. There are lots of different types of poems. These include limericks, acrostic poems, shape poems and free verse. Poems might rhyme but they don't have to. Usual rules of word order and punctuation aren't always followed in poems.
Monday – L.O. To understand that there are different types of poems.
Tuesday – L.O. To explain why I like a poem
Poetry is meant to be performed and listened to. Listen to some of these poems. Which were your favourites? Why did you like them? Choose a poem and write a review for it.
Wednesday – L.O. To revise how to write a poem and create one of your own.
Thursday – L.O. To explore inference questions using a poem.
Friday – L.O. To create my own poem
Add at least one thing from this list to your story:
Read your story carefully and edit any errors.
English - Assessments (08-06-2020)
As we have missed our test week this term, have a go at these assessments! You do not need to print them out, you can use the reading booklets to answer the questions in the answer booklets and write your answers down on paper. Once you are finished, you can check your answers and mark your work using the mark scheme document. Aim to get at least half of the questions correct.
We are really keen to see what the children are getting up to at home and to put some photos on to Twitter and the school website. Additionally, it would be lovely to have photos that celebrate and thank the NHS and key workers. These do not have to be photos of your child but things that they have created such as posters, poems, rainbows or thank you cards. If you have anything you are happy to share, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
This page has been created to support parents during COVID-19 and the closure of schools.
