Tuesday 24th March

Hi Maple class,

I would like to start off by saying a huge thank you to everyone who sent me photos of their work and the other activities they got up to yesterday. These will be going on our class blog very soon. I have attached the answers to yesterdays maths questions. The diary is yours now. I would like you to write in it each day for a week, thinking about what you have done that day and how you felt. If you would like to continue it on once you have finished the diary booklet, you have a red book which you can write in

Here are your tasks for the day:

Maths - Subtracting 2 digit numbers from 3 digit numbers with exchange

I would like you to use column subtraction to complete the problems on this sheet. I have attached a photo with instructions for anyone who isn't sure or needs a quick reminder.

Children - can you make up some problems for your grown ups or siblings to complete?

Adults - challenge your children by asking them to convince you! This is something we do a lot in school and there are always loads of ways of doing it. They might explain what they have done, use pictures or concrete objects or use known facts.


English - Creating Sentences Using Subordinating clauses

There are 2 subordinating clauses sheets, I'd like you to do the one with a table on it today, please. You are adding the subordinate clause to the main clause which is already there. Remember to read through your work to check that each of the sentences makes sense. You need to start a subordinate clause with a subordinate conjunction. There is a little bookmark in the pack with some of the most common subordinating conjunctions on or (if your grown ups are willing to get this very catchy song stuck in their heads) you can use this song to help you remember some of them



You might have spotted rainbow pictures in lots windows at the moment. This was started as a sort of "I Spy" game for children. Dunkirk staff have thought it would be a nice idea to continue this so on your daily walk around the local area you can see how many you can spot. We would love it if children can make a rainbow to put in their window for others to see. They can be made out of anything you like - paint, crayons, leaves, food wrappers etc. Send us photos of these so we can add them to a page on our website!


Have a lovely day and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
