Welcome back Third Class,

I hope you all enjoyed your extra-long long weekend. The weather has been amazing. I hope you spent lots of time outdoors.

As I mentioned on zoom last week, I will be winding down the work for the month of June. I am keeping the written work to a minimum and I have tried to make the work as fun as possible. Instead of a list of daily work, I will be uploading a weekly menu of activities for you to complete before the end of the week. As always, this is just a guide. Do what you can, when you can and always try your best 😊

If anyone wants to send me artwork/ stem challenges and/or work you're proud of, please email me.

Happy Birthday to Ryan, who is ten today!! I hope you have a great day.

Stay safe and well,

Ms. Grace

This type of puzzle is called a dingbat. See if you can work out the message for these dingbats.

Your heart is a muscle about the size of your fist. It is an important muscle because its job is to pump the blood around your body. It never stops. When your heart beats it sends a wave of pressure through all of your veins in your body. We call this your pulse. One place to feel your pulse is on your wrist in a straight line at the base of your thumb.

·       Record pulse rate at rest, by counting pulse beats on the wrist for 1 minute.

·       Run around your garden a couple of times or do a minute of jumping jacks.

·       Immediately record pulse rate again.

What did you notice? Is your pulse rate slower or faster?

Your heart pumps faster when you are exercising because your body needs more blood and more oxygen.
