Warm your minds and tongues up using these tongue twisters.
Tongue twisters are a great way to practice and improve pronunciation and fluency. They can also help to improve accents by using alliteration, which is the repetition of one sound. They’re not just for kids, but are also used by actors, politicians, and public speakers who want to sound clear when speaking. Below, you will find some of the most popular English tongue twisters. Say them as quickly as you can. If you can master them, you will be a much more confident speaker.

Time to read Chapter 20 -The Great Gum Machine and Chapter 21 - Goodbye Violet. You can listen to me read these on the Video resource centre.

Start with FB4
Now watch the video and complete the sheet named 'Horizontal and Vertical'.
I haven't included anything for this today because I think this sheet should be accessible to everyone today.

Bisher in 3CM created some Art work out of leaves. I thought it was such a lovely idea so thought it would make a good activity to put on the our Year 3 page. You don't just have to stick to leaves - you could use other natural resources.
Can you create something similar. Use leaves you find on the ground rather than pull them off the trees. Send me any pictures if you have time.
