When you open the task, remember to open the lesson and follow this first, because it will help you understand the task. Mathszone is a great place to find links to other Maths games and activities you might want to try.

    If you fancy a challenge, have a go at this nRich problem.I know some of you have been connecting with each other over the internet, so this might be one you play together.

    In Maths, we are looking at right angles. They can identify objects round the home that have right angles or angles smaller/bigger than a right angle. The evidence could be a photo, a drawing or a list of objects with the types angles. I will also put an angles MyMaths activity for those who wish to complete it.
    In Science, we are focussing on magnets. Are there things around the house that would be attracted to a magnet? Are there things in the house that use magnets to work?

    Year 3 Homework: 10.2.20
    After half term, our topic will be focussing on the ancient civilisation of Egypt so any information you want to find out over the holidays, or if you want to produce a project piece, you can. Alternatively, you could focus on our Science topic of forces and magnets to find out about.
    Keep up with reading and sharing books as this is really important to extend your vocabulary and their comprehension skills.
    I have printed some multiplication and division tasks for practise.
    Have a lovely holiday filled with family time.

    FYI I have added some MyMaths tasks if the children want to do some revision and I have set the tables on TTRS too. I have also updated the books on Bug Club to match the reading assesment they did last week. Some have stayed on the same book band, due to needing more work on comprehension. Some, however, have moved a colour band.

    Hope that helps.
    Many thanks,
    Miss Beale

    The last few weeks, we have been working on written methods of multiplication and division. They are getting the method for multiplication and division of two digit by 1 digit numbers but they are making mistakes because their table facts aren’t secure yet. I am going to send home multiplication and division sheets home over the next few weeks to try and secure these. Any tables revision using times tables rockstars, hit the button or BBC supermovers will also help.
    Spelling this week is to recap 100 high frequency words. They should know these from Y1/2, however, they are making errors in their written work. I am only expecting them to practise the ones they don’t know. I will select 12 words from the list for next week’s spelling test. For those who know all these, they can practise any words from past lists that they have got wrong.
    Many thanks,
    Miss Beale

    Two tasks have been set on MyMaths . One is linked to our current focus on x/÷ and one is revision of previous work (money Y2 skills).
    For English, can children find an advert (child friendly) for us to look at next week. We are looking at persuasive language.
    Thanks,
    Miss Beale

    spelling – s, ss, ch as a sh sound (French origin)

    I have printed a multiplication grid and division games to support tables practise. We are revisiting multiplication written methods again, but if children don’t know their table facts rapidly, it makes this a very challenging unit for them.
    For English, can the children find synonyms of said (e.g. replied, called, shouted). They can use any book(s)they have at home.
    Thanks,
    Miss Beale

    5.3.20 Thank you so much for all the hard work in sorting costumes for the children today. They all looked amazing! We definitely had fun as a bunch of animals. Thank you.

    5.2.20 I am so proud of everyone today. They were absolutely fantastic on our trip and a real credit to you all. It was a pleasure to take them out. I will load up pictures ASAP. Thank you, Miss Beale

    17.1.20 Miss Brierley was very pleased with their French today. Ask the children to sing the French alphabet to you.

    10.10.19 You should be really proud of your children. Our workshop was fab and Mr Trevor commented on how settled the children are at this early stage in Year 3 and asked some great historical questions. I am one very proud teacher!

    4.10.19 As you may be aware, our workshop was postponed on Wednesday because Mr Trevor was poorly. Hopefully, he will be better for next week as we have rescheduled our workshop for Tuesday instead.

    Miss Beale

    23.9.19 You should all have received an email about our workshop on 2.10.19. Any questions, let me know.

    Miss Beale

    13.9.19 Just a quick note to say that until October half term, our PE slots have changed. We will be outdoors on Wednesdays and indoor on Thursdays. This is so the children can work with Lauren, a personal trainer, to develop our fitness. The children thoroughly enjoyed their first session, yesterday, and we are all looking forward to next week.

    4.9.19 We have had a busy first couple of days in Y3. The children look really smart in their new uniforms. Thank you for your efforts. Miss Beale
