a Pathway to Success

Friday, 15th May

Hi Year 3,

Well, where has that week gone?  I can't believe that it is Friday again and only one week away from half-term! Keep hanging in there Year 3.  I am proud of each and every one of you and all of the hard work which you are doing.


  *   Today I would like you to have another go with commas in lists.  This time you are going to be having to write some of your own sentences, using commas correctly.  You are also going to be having to look and see whether some of the sentences which have been given to you, have the commas in the correct places.


  *   Today, we are going to continue looking again at unit and non-unit fractions.  A unit fraction is a fraction that always has 1 as the numerator, for example 1/2, 1/4 and 1/3.  A non-unit fraction will always have a number greater than 1 as the numerator, for example 2/3 and 3/4.  Look carefully at the questions on the sheet which I have given you and you will again need to do a lot of matching the fraction to the correct shaded shape.  You should be finding that  you are growing in confidence with this.  I have attached the PowerPoint from yesterday, as you may find this useful.

Don't forget to keep your 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables ticking over and also make sure that you are able to show the inverse operation to each fact, for example 4 x 8=32, so 32 divided by 8 is 4.  Also, some of you are now very confident with all of the times tables we have looked at, so if you feel that you are, I would like you to begin to learn your 6, 7 and 9 times tables.

Good luck and I will see you all again soon.

Bye for now.

Mr G
