Monday 18th May 2020

 

Hello Year 3, can you believe we are half way through May already? We are still missing you all terribly! 

We hope you have all had a good weekend and that you are ready for some more learning!  We know that you are working away on your Home Learning packs and on your Accelerated Maths, so do what is manageable for you from the website along with the work you already have.

                                       

 

 

 

 

This week continue to choose some Literacy and Numeracy activities from your work pack to complete as well as your Accelerated Maths tasks.  The work below should be used to supplement this pack.

 

As always your mums and dads can email us to ask us any questions!

You have been learning your 2, 5 and 10 Times Tables from your Maths Facts Book over the last few weeks - Well Done, keep revising them regularly!

This week we would like you learn all 2's, 5's and 10's off by heart! We have attached lots of pages for all 3 sets of tables. It is very important before moving onto new sets that you learn these ones first. Please make sure you know them in random order! If you have set them out in their groups in previous weeks they should be easy to understand for learning! Use your Fact book to look over, then ask an adult to challenge you on all these tables in written form and orally. Good Luck!!

 

 

 

 

Here are some times tables games that you might like to play:

Make sure you choose games with 2x and 10x and 5 x tables for now on 'Hit the Button' game!

Continue to use the different language below for Numeracy in your Mental Maths practise eg 12 plus 9=, what is the sum of 5 and 8?, What is the difference between 10 and 16? If John has 8 apples and Lucy has 18 apples, how many more has Lucy?

You can do this orally as well as in written form.

 

Topic - Water

Our new topic for this term is 'Water'

  

Last week we started to think about our new water topic by listing the uses of water.  We're sure you were surprised at just how many uses there are and how important water is to us! 

This week, look at one way that you or your family could save water and make a poster showing this eg use rain water for watering your plants, not letting the tap run continuously when you are brushing your teeth, taking a shower instead of a bath...

You can begin your poster with:

 Reading

 Last week we asked you to read lots of books! Well done, please continue to read every day. 

Below are some links for Free eBooks.

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page

https://www.librariesni.org.uk/Children/Pages/default.aspx

 

This week we would like you to complete a review of one of the books you have read this week.  Choose one story and complete one (or both) of the book reviews below:

 

For those children who are on Accelerated Reading, you can go to My school on the school home page ...click on News and Info cloud and click on MySchool logo and log in under Renaissance (Red book)...remember it's the same a logging into Accelerated Maths. Did you know you can complete AR quizzes at home during school time?

 

 

 

Numeracy

You have been learning your 2 and 10 Times Tables from your Maths Facts Book over the last 2 weeks - Well Done, keep revising them regularly!

This week we would like you to look at the page about 5 Times Tables  (there is a copy of this page below).

 

The 5 times tables are a little trickier to learn. Please set them out on 5 plates or 5 circles on a page or anything that makes it easier for you to understand. Use counters, raisins, smarties, pasta ....to set out on each plate. This will help you count eg 5 plates with no counters on them is 5x0=0, put 1 counter on each plate to see 5x1=5, 2 counters on each plate and add to see 5x2=10...each time you start with the 5 which is the number of plates. The second number in your sum is the number of counters on each plate and the last number in your sum is the total.

Learn these tables in a random order to help with quick recall.

Keep revising your 2 and 10 Times Tables as well.

You can call them sets of numbers before saying x(times) eg 5 sets of 1 is the same as 5 times 1 or can be written as 5x1. When you know your 2, 5 and 10 Times Tables you will be able to see that they are the same when you turn them the other way eg 5x2 is the same as 2x5...

 

Can an adult challenge you on your 5 Times tables up to 60? Get him/her to mix them up to challenge you!  

 

Here are some times tables games that you might like to play:

Make sure you choose games with 2x and 10x and 5 x tables for now on 'Hit the Button' game!
