a Pathway to Success

Monday, 22nd June

Hi Year 3,

I hope that you all had a nice weekend and are ready to go for another week of home learning.  Please remember that learning at home is totally different to what we do in school.  Your parents are also very busy with things that they have to do and might not always be able to help you like I would in class.  Just keep on trying your best with everything which I send, as i'm proud of every single one of you!


  *   Today for comprehension, I would like you to carefully read the information on Robert Burns.  Burns, who was known as Rabbie Burns, was a famous Scottish poet (or bard).  Use your VIPERS skills to help you answer the questions.


  *   We are moving on to converting between pence and pounds and pence.  This will be something which you have looked at with smaller amounts in the past.  Remember that 100p is equal to £1.00, so £3 and 29p is the same as 329p or £3.29.  Most of you should be confident enough to start with the second sheet. I have attached a PowerPoint to introduce this.

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.

You may also want to look at a BBC Bitesize maths game called, "Guardians:  Defenders of Mathematica".  This game is set in a make believe world which you navigate by using either mental or written maths in different topic areas.  Thank you to Jacob for trialing this game for us and introducing me to it.

See you all soon.

Take care!

Mr G
