Wednesday 13th January

Good morning Year 3.  Today there is some Maths, English, History and Science 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 today.  Now we should all be familiar with the layout as it looks like the method we use for written addition and subtraction.  As with the last couple of days, I know that we won't all be extremely confident with our 3, 4 and 8 timetables just yet so make sure you use the multiplication grid available to help you with the answers.  There is a PowerPoint for you to have a look through and to engage with.  There is then an initial activity which you can choose from (2 star and 3 star).  Have a look at the 2 levels and choose the level which will challenge you but you won't be struggling to complete.  There is then a main activity which is made up of 3 levels.  Start at level 1, work through and see how far you can get.


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.


Today you are going to test your reading comprehension skills.  I have attached the PowerPoint with the story on it again and I have also included a reading comprehension pack.  Flick between the two to try and answer all of the questions in the pack.  Remember to read each question carefully and check the number of marks that are available for each question as this will give you a clue as to how much you should write.


Our Science topic this half term is looking at rocks and soils.  This links in very nicely with our English book Stone Age Boy and our history topic of the Stone Age through to the Iron Age.


Attached is a PowerPoint presentation for you to look through and engage with.  From there, there is an activity to sort different rocks into natural and man-made.  There are 2 levels of this.  2 star looks at natural vs man-made and there uses whereas 3 star also has you deciding whether the rocks are 'igneous', 'sedimentary' or 'metamorphic'.


Decide on the worksheet based on how well you understand the content of the lesson presentation.  As I have said before, there is now need to print these sheets out.  You could annotate them via the Seesaw app or just recreate the tables in a book or on a piece of paper and simply write down the names of the rocks rather than cutting and sticking them from the worksheet.


Best of luck Year 3.


Today is our first session of our new history unit which is on the Iron Age through to the Stone Age.  There is a lesson presentation for you to look through and engage with.  The main activity is to create a television advert for a bow and arrow.  You must act as if you are living in the Stone Age and that this is the very first bow and arrow and that is going to change everyone's lives.  See if you can record yourself presenting your own television advert and put it onto the Seesaw app.
