Thursday 14th January

Good morning Year 3.  Today there is some Maths, English, RE and Music for you to have a go at.  Make sure you upload your work onto Seesaw so that I can have a look at what you have been doing.




We are going to be looking at the formal method of short multiplication again today just to make sure that we are fully aware of how to use it correctly.  I will once again upload an input video for this to Seesaw and then there are some activities below for you to complete.  These activities are purely for the purpose of practising the written method as we don't want to move on unless we are ready to do so.  Make sure you get in touch on Seesaw if you are struggling at all and continue to use the Multiplication grid to help you.  Our focus is understanding how to complete short multiplication, not knowing all of our timetables by heart (just yet).


I have also included the answers so you can self-check and mark to see how well you got on like we sometimes do together in class.



Grammar Starter


To start this lesson off, I would like you to take a look at and engage with this presentation about 'Imperative verbs'.  You will find yourself using them afterwards...

Now that you have looked at the Grammar starter, I am going to ask you to write me a set of tips/instructions for surviving in the Stone Age.  You are going to base what you write on what you have seen in the story 'Stone Age Boy' and also what you learnt in our history lesson yesterday.


You instructions/tips should contain:

  • A heading
  • Bullet point/numbered points of tips (in order of importance)
  • Images/diagrams to go with your tips


Success Criteria

  1. Capital letters and full stops
  2. Imperative verbs
  3. Adverbs to describe your imperative verbs (e.g. Quickly make a shelter)
  4. Structure (heading, body of text, images)


Can't wait to see what you come up with.



Moving on from the session on Tuesday, this is a research based activity.  You might notice that the Church has different colours to represent different times of the liturgical year.  These colours can be seen in how the church is decorated and in the vestments which the priest wears at mass.


I would like you to research what these colours are, when they are used during the liturgical year and what they represent.  You could record your findings on a poster, in a booklet that you might create or through a video which you might record. 


I look forward to seeing what you find out.


Using the logins which I sent out last week, login to Yumu and have a go at the second music session on there.
