Music : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8Z5gBFi6ZY  . Your task is to listen to Elizabethan Renaissance music. You need to identify tempo and research instruments used during the Elizabethan times. Children should be familiar with this from our Humanities lesson. 

Children should read the chapters of Alice in Wonderland as suggested on the time table. The following comprehension question about chapter 6 - 10 should be answered to check they have understood the text.

Q: Why did Alice run back into the wood?
Q: What did Alice see when she walked into the kitchen?
Q: Why does the baby cry so much?
Q: Do you like Duchess? Why/Why not?
Q: Would you like to be in Wonderland? Why/Why not?
Q: What does Alice keep eating to make herself change size? 

 

We appreciate all your hard work at this time.

Many thanks.

The year 3 team.
