a Pathway to Success

Thursday, 14th May

Hello Year 3,

I hope that everyone is well.  I know that the weather hasn't been as nice as last week, but it has been great to here that lots of you are still getting out and about on walks with the family.  Getting fresh air and exercise is just as important as doing work!

Just a reminder that the work which I usually send you (particularly in maths), is made up of three sheets, with each sheet getting harder.  Don't forget, if you are feeling confident abut what we are looking at, you can start with the second sheet.  I will tell you if I think that you should start with the first sheet!


  *   Today I would like you to write a Stone Age adventure story.  The sheet which I have given you will explain what I would like you to do and I have provided you with a start to this story.  Don't forget to include all of the great vocabulary and grammar that we have looked at this year.


  *   Today, we are going to start 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 need to be doing a lot of matching and shading in shapes.  This may seem hard at first, however, as you get into it you will start to remember the work which covered in class.  I have attached a PowerPoint, which will allow you to look at this, before you start the work.

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.

Take care and I will see you all soon.

Bye for now.

Mr G
