a Pathway to Success

Wednesday, 17th June

Hello Year 3,

How is everyone?  Hopefully you are all raring to go for some more work!!


  *   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 going to finish our work on comparing angles.  We should now be pretty confident on what a right angle is (the L shape).  If we measured a right angle it would be 90 degrees.  An angle which is smaller than a right angle is called an acute angle.  An angle which is bigger than a right angle is called an obtuse angle.  Take a look at the attached sheet.  This is pretty straightforward and involves you again at looking at shapes and describing their angles.  There are a couple of questions where you have to explain your answers, so read these carefully!


  *   We are continuing with our theme on pushes and pulls.  Take a look at the second sheet.  There are pictures of some toys.  Think about how you would play with these.  Would you push them?  Would you pull them? Would you both push and pull?  Cut out the pictures and stick them in the correct column on the first sheet.

  *   Mrs Rowland has also provided some practical science investigations for you to try.

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 soon.

Mr G
