a Pathway to Success

Wednesday, 10th June

Hello Year 3,

How are you all doing?  We are now well into another week of home learning and in maths, another new topic.  Hopefully you were able to pick up quickly on the work on angles and turns yesterday.  Once you get into it, it should be pretty straightforward!


  *   As usual for a Wednesday, I would like you to complete the two handwriting sheets which I have sent you.  Remember, when you have finished these, find out the definitions (meanings) of any words that you are unsure of and write these in a simple sentence.


  *   We are carrying on  with our work on turns and angles. You are going to need to know what direction clockwise is (the direction the hand on a clock moves) and anti-clockwise (the opposite way).  You will need to use some language from our work on time, such as quarter, half and three quarters.  Today, for some of the questions, you will also need to think back to some of our work on shape and the types of angles that shapes have.  I have attached the PowerPoint again to help you.


  *   Please complete the attached sheet on pushes and pulls.  This should be fairly straightforward.  Pushes and pulls are types of forces which can make things start to move move or stop,  Look at each picture and say whether it shows a push or a pull and whether it is making something start to move or stop moving.
  *   Mrs Rowland has also provided some practical science activities for you.

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.

See you all soon.

Over and out!

Mr G
