“Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes, don’t wanna be a richer man” – David Bowie
Good Morning Year 3,
Today we will be recapping our money knowledge from yesterday’s activity to find the answers when adding larger amounts of money. If you are unsure of how to approach the activity, check yesterday’s blog! Tomorrow we will be looking at how to calculate what change we should get when buying things (a very valuable skill). For now, lets focus on the sums below.
Find the total of the money below.
£10 and 34p + £4 and 25p
£10 and 65p + £9 and 45p
£5 and 32p + £3 and 99p
£14 + £6 and 12p
£27 and 67p + £100
Please leave a comment below to let us know what you think of the activity 🙂
You may have heard on the news that the government has developed a national scheme to provide supermarket vouchers to families of pupils eligible for benefits-related free school meals during the school closure. This will be via the Edenred online portal.
If you are entitled to receive vouchers through this scheme then a member of the school office staff will be contacting you today to confirm an email address to send the voucher to. We will aim to send the voucher codes via email on Friday. The vouchers are for a set amount of £15 per pupil per week. You can select from a range of different supermarkets to use them in.
If you are not entitled to benefits-related free school meals, but you are currently experiencing difficulties then please email the school office on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss this with you.
Please see below for more information about the scheme.
Throughout this half-term we have discussed different ways to keep healthy and safe. We have identified and discussed the roles of people who keep us healthy and safe. We have spoken about feelings, our actions, reactions and secrets.
·What does safety mean to you?
·What does health mean to you?
·Is there only one type of health?
o Let’s take a look at this student created blog post.
·Can you list some ways that we keep safe and healthy?

We would like you to take a moment, reflect and comment on the blog, responding to the four questions listed above (in green).
All comments are welcomed! 🙂
We look forward to hearing your thoughts on health and safety
Thank you to everyone leaving comments on posts and checking the blog everyday. I miss you all so I thought i’d update you on how i’ve been keeping busy and ask you about what you’ve been doing to have fun too. 🙂
To keep myself active I have been going for walks/runs on a daily basis and following along to workout videos on youtube. I’ve set myself a goal that I am to meet everyday so at the end of the week I can have a treat (that I choose). I have started a new book of poems by Pablo Neruda who is a famous poet who is quoted by saying;
“Love is not about property, diamonds and gifts. It is about sharing your very self with the world around you”
“Laughter is the language of the soul.“
Even though it seems a little strange, I have been brushing my teeth three times a day because we have to look after our teeth! I’ll be doing some more research into fun activities for us to do over the next week but I am super interested in hearing about what you’ve been up to?
Leave a comment below and let me know! I’ll try to take some pictures to upload aswell.
