Year 3 Week 2 30/3/20

<< Current Week

Friday 3rd April – Day 10

MATHS

Complete the fluent in 5, Day 5 task. If you haven’t yet been able to complete the questions in 5 minutes yet this week, try and see if you can do it today but don’t worry if you don’t with more practice your fluency will get better.

Review your previous learning by using the answer sheet to self mark.

Today’s Maths will be a Mathletics investigation which your class teacher will have assigned to you. Remember there is space for you to do working out or you can do it on scrap paper if that is easier for you.

The question you’ll be assigned in mathletics is written below in case you have any problems with Mathletics.

Question – Using the digits 3, 4 and 5 make all the different numbers that you can. You can only use each digit once in each number but you don’t have to use all the digits. Example: you can make the number 34 but you can’t make 33.

Part A: How many different numbers can be made using the digits 3, 4 and 5 ( show all the numbers you can make)?

Part B: What is the smallest 3 digit number you can make?

Part C: What is the largest 3 digit number you can make?

ENGLISH

Reading

Read the extract from ‘You’re a Bad Man Mr Gum’ by Andy Stanton, illustrated by David Tazzyman. Annotate the text with what you notice, think, and wonder. (See examples already shown on the text.)

FRENCH In class you learnt all about the days of the week and how to pronounce them. Today we want you to remind yourself about the days of the week and how to pronounce them. The sheet also shows you exactly what the names actually mean.

There is an ordering and matching activity for you to do.

To be able to complete it you can either;

  • print the sheets off and do them if you have a printer
  • write it out yourself on any paper that you have and take a photo of it
  • annotate it on Showbie using the annotation tools

Thursday 2nd April – Day 9

MATHS

Complete the Fluent in 5 task; if you haven’t yet been able to complete the questions in 5 minutes, try beating the time you did yesterday. With more practice your fluency will get better!

Review your previous learning by using the answer sheet to self mark.

Today in maths you will be looking at what happens to a number when you add 10 more or less and when you add 100 more or less.

Remember to look at the place value of a number and the digits of that number.

For example: for the number 35, if you wanted to find out 10 more then you would need to look at the digit 3 as it is in the tens column. 10 more than 30 is 40 so 10 more than 35 would be 45.

ENGLISH

Today you are going to be practising your spellings for the week and we have sent you the sheet that you usually use. Once you have practised your spellings, you need to use each of these words in a sentence. You must make sure that your sentence makes sense.

There are 10 spellings, so you should have 10 sentences.

You can either write them on paper and take a picture to send to Showbie or write your sentences into Showbie for us to see.

CREATIVE CURRICULUM

History focus: Think back to our research about the Stone Age and the cave paintings that we started to look at. We have sent you some images of Stone Age cave paintings and want you to look closely at them.

Whilst you do this think about the following questions:

  • What can you see?
  • What do you notice about the images?
  • What colours and textures can you see?
  • What story is the image telling us?

Answer as many of these questions as you can. There is space on the sheet for you to do this.

Wednesday 1st April – Day 8

MATHS

Review the learning you did yesterday and self mark by checking your answers using the sheet we have sent you.

Complete the fluent in 5 task – set a timer and see if you can finish all 4 questions in 5 minutes. Don’t worry if you can’t do this yet as the aim is to practice and get better with your fluency skills.

Today’s place value worksheet will look at:

  • creating a 3 digit number – look at which column the digit you have been given needs to go in you will also be comparing 3 digit numbers.
  • identifying odd and even numbers.

Remember: if you are looking at a 3-digit number, look at the hundreds first. Which number has the smallest digit in the hundreds column? This number will be the smallest number. If there is more than one number with the same amount of hundreds, then look at the tens column to help you identify the next number.

You can complete the worksheet by annotating the sheet in Showbie, or use a paper and pencil to complete it. If you can, take a photo of this and upload it to Showbie.

When this is completed you can go on mathletics and complete any tasks your teacher has given you (https://login.mathletics.co.uk).

ENGLISH

L.I: I am learning to write the second part of a comparative letter.

Success criteria:

  • I can use comparative connectives
  • I can use time connectives
  • I can use descriptive vocabulary
    Challenge: to include an opinion e.g. this is much better because…

Today we will write at least two more paragraphs comparing how things have changed between the Stone Age and now. Then we will end our letters to UG.

You can use pencil and paper or use the sheet that we have provided here on Showbie. We have also given you a model write below to help you with your success criteria.

CREATIVE CURRICULUM

PE focus: Joe Wicks has been making 30 minute workout videos for children to use. Go online and join in with today’s workout.

If you can, ask an adult to film part of your workout and upload it to your Showbie account so we can see you all joining in.

Tuesday 31st March – Day 7

MATHS

Complete the fluent in 5 activity sheet first. There is space around the page if you need to do some working out. Try and see if you can complete all questions in 5 minutes.

You could do this by annotating the sheet in Showbie, or use a paper and pencil to complete it. If you can, take a photo of this and upload it to Showbie.

Today on your maths worksheet you will continue to order whole numbers and then look at comparing numbers.

Remember when ordering numbers look at the value of each digit and where that digit is placed.

For example, with the number 45 the value of the digit 4 is 4 tens which is 40. The value of the digit 5 is 5 ones.

If you are looking at a 3-digit number, look at the hundreds first. Which number has the smallest number in the hundreds column? This number will be the smallest number. If there is more than one number with the same amount of hundreds, then look at the tens column to help you identify the next number.

You could do this by annotating the sheet in Showbie, or use a paper and pencil to complete it. If you can, take a photo of this and upload it to Showbie.

When this is completed you can go on Mathletics (login.mathletics.com) and complete any tasks your teacher has given you.

ENGLISH

Aim: I am learning to write the first part of a letter.

Today we will be starting to write a letter to Ug to tell him about how much things have improved now compared to the Stone Age. Today we want you to write the introduction for our letter and one comparison.

Include your address at the top right of the page and the date beneath it. Then start on the left hand side of the page below.

Try to include:

  • I can use comparative connectives (instead of, but, however)
  • I can use time connectives (Since the Stone Age… First of all I want to tell you about… Next…)
  • I can use descriptive vocabulary for objects (We have warm, soft and comfortable beds…)

Challenge: to include an opinion e.g. this is much better because…

Example:

Heronsgate Primary School

Whinchat Road London

SE28 0EA

Monday 30th March

Dear Ug,

(Who are you?) My name is Isaac and I live in London. The year is 2020.

(Why are you writing?) Since the Stone Age, things have changed a lot and I am writing to you to let you know what life is like now. I know that you wanted to change lots of things and I think that you will be pleased to hear how some of your problems now have solutions.

(One comparison to start a new paragraph– look back at last Friday’s sentences) In your time, you used heavy, cold and hard blankets but now we use materials which are light, warm and soft. This is much better because we are now able to sleep in great comfort and warmth.

You can write your letter on paper and take a photo to upload to Showbie or you can type your letter using your computer and then upload this to Showbie.

CREATIVE CURRICULUM

PSHCE focus: At the beginning of the year, you set yourself a New Year resolution. Now we are at the end of March, it is time to reflect on how this is going. Look back at your resolution in Showbie if you can’t remember it.

Answer the following questions as a comment on Showbie or on paper.

  • How is your resolution going?
  • Have you been successful in keeping your resolution?
  • What is going well?
  • What are you finding difficult about keeping your resolution?
  • Is there anything you can do to make it easier to keep your resolution?
  • Is there anything you want to add to your resolution if you feel as though you have been able to keep it?

Monday 30th March – Day 6

MATHS

First you need to complete a short fluency starter, set a timer and see if you can complete the 4 short questions in 5 minutes.

Maths this week you will be going over whole numbers and place value.

Remember with place value we read and write numbers in the order we say them.

For example the number 852 – can be shown as 8 (Hundreds) 5 (Tens) 2 (Ones) or Eight hundred and fifty two.

When placing numbers in order you need to look carefully at the position and value of each digit.

Watch this video on place value to help remind you what place value is

Then complete the maths worksheet on Showbie using the pen or text box in the tools section of Showbie to record your learning, or if you don’t have access to Showbie you could write down your answers on a piece of paper.

Page 1-2 will be looking at reading and writing numbers. Page 3 will look at ordering numbers.

ENGLISH

L.I: I am learning to identify the features of letter writing.

Later this week, we will be writing letters back in time to UG. Read the example letters. Can you identify these features of letter writing on each?

Features:

  • Your address (right hand side)
  • Date (under the (address)
  • Greeting
  • Introduction (1st paragraph) – explains why you are writing letter
  • Main section (2nd paragraph) – main section can be split into a few paragraphs if making more than 1 point/comparison. Each paragraph explains one point.
  • Conclusion – last paragraph – to give overview of letter – summary
  • Signing off

You can use the highlighter tools in Showbie to show us where the letters have hit the Success Criteria.

CREATIVE CURRICULUM

History focus: You have carried out a lot of research about life during the Stone Age. We have found out that the early period of the Stone Age was known as the Paleolithic Period.

Using all of your previous research and knowledge, create a poster to show what life was like during the Paleolithic Period.

Think about the following things.

  • What weapons were available during this period?
  • What food would have been eaten?
  • What animals would people have hunted?
  • Where did people live during this time?
  • Describe the type of homes that people had.

To create your poster you can draw and label pictures on paper using pens and pencils or you can use pic collage, collect images from the internet or any other creative ideas you have. Send us a picture of your creation on Showbie if you can!
