Hello Year 3 and families,


I hope you all had a fantastic bank holiday weekend and celebrated VE Day as best you could (I would love some photos of what you got up to). I received some amazing work and can see that you're all trying so hard! A BIG well done from me! Remember, to just try your hardest and do what you can with the learning activities. We need to get this week's gallery full of work to celebrate, so please do email me your work to jstone@hazlehurst.co.uk 

Please do keep emailing me you illustrations for the Linking Schools Project- thank you to those who have sent me a submission! With regards to the Sedgley Park and Hazlehurst poem submissions, if you are thinking of doing an illustration, could you please email me with the line you are thinking of doing so we have no overlaps. :) I will keep updating the submissions to the home page, so everybody can see how far we have got with it! I have been showing Mrs Knowles the submissions, we are going to display them near her office !! Very exciting! 

If you still need your Big Maths Log on, please do not hesitate to email me and I can get this to you. I would like this to be done each week if possible. Practice makes perfect, so keep going, you are doing fantastic!

Thank you for all of your continued hard work, I felt very proud when I received all of the amazing work that you have been emailing to me. This has been shared below, under the Rainbow image- Celebration of work.

Learning Challenge Question 4: What do we mean by seed dispersal and why is it so important to plants?

Have you ever seen flowers in any unusual places?

What do you already know about plants and the way they grow? (conditions)

Look at the images of the plants growing in unusual places (resource list below).

How did plants grow in walls? 

The answer to this is a process called seed dispersal. Please have a look at the powerpoint that will explain different types of seed dispersal, jot down any key points.

Task: Using an ipad (with a grown up), go to the following website http://www2.bgfl.org/bgfl2/custom/resources_ftp/client_ftp/ks2/science/plants_pt2/dispersal.htm
