Tuesday

Maths

This week, as usual you have the choice to continue with work from bitesize: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zmyxxyc/year-3-and-p4-lessons

 

Otherwise, the rest of us will be finishing off our work on fractions.

There will be a challenge everyday for those people who really love maths.

Literacy

 

The Anansi tales travelled across the Atlantic ocean to the Carribbean with the Ashanti people because of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. This is an important part of the history of the world. It is a good idea to talk to somebody at home about it to understand it a bit more. 

Because of this Anansi became a bit of a trickster character and he would often outwit those who were bigger or more powerful than him with his clever ideas. Although sometimes he did get himself in trouble too.

 

The Unicorn Theatre retold some Anansi stories in a show last year, and they have recreated it for this year when we are all in lockdown at home.

 

This is the first of three stories we will be using for literacy this week. Enjoy watching it and your task today is underneath.

 

 

Anansi the Spider Re-spun, episode 1: Brother Anansi and Brother Snake | Digital Theatre

Enjoy!

This story is about famine, which is one there is no food for a large group of people. In the story, Owl suggests that everyone works hard and cooperates to grow things to eat.

 

As we know, cooperation is an important value at VPPS and in the world. Why is it especially important at the moment?

 

The Ashanti people had an ancient symbol for cooperation which they used on pottery and other objects. Here it is.

 

Can you design your own symbol to show cooperation? What about our other school values? Have a go and send them in to the email address. Can't wait!
