a Pathway to Success

Wednesday, 13th May

Hi Year 3,

I hope that everybody is well and keeping up the excellent work which you are doing.  Thank you again for the projects which you carried out last week.  I am still looking through these and I have to say that I am so impressed at all of your hard work.  We've had a mixture of writing, PowerPoint and news reports.  Well done!


  *   As today is Wednesday, I would like you to do the handwriting sheets which I have sent you.  This won't take you long, so when you have finished, I would like you to try and find out the meanings of any words which you don't know, recording these definitions (meanings) in a simple sentence.


  *   We are continuing to look at making a whole, as this was the first thing that we looked at back in January.  Look carefully at the fraction drawings and the fractions themselves.  If we had 3 sections of a four section shape coloured in, then the fraction would be 3/4.  If we had 4/7, we would then need 3/7 more to make a whole (the total of the numerators needs to add up to the denominator).  A lot of you will be confident with this, so you can start with the second sheet.  As today we are looking at reasoning and problem solving, read the questions carefully and explain your answers.


  *   Please have a go at the attached sheet labeling the different parts of a plant.  Mrs Rowland has also provided some practical science activities for you to have a go at.

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.

I will see you all soon.

Over and out!

Mr G
