Year 3 Homework

21 April 2020

Posted on Tuesday 21 April 2020 by Mr Owen

Hi everyone,

Reading

Today, I’ve recorded a video message to explain our reading task, as well as writing it. I hope it works ok – I’m just getting used to this! If you haven’t seen it, I also recorded a message on our class news page.

Here’s a fantastic poem by Kit Wright, called the Magic Box. Kit Wright is a British poet and author and has written lots of famous and award winning poems, but I like this one the best. It’s got some beautiful word choices that really make me imagine the magic of the box. Have a read…

———————–

THE MAGIC BOX, by Kit Wright

I will put in the box

 

the swish of a silk sari on a summer night,

fire from the nostrils of a Chinese dragon,

the tip of a tongue touching a tooth.

 

I will put in the box

 

a snowman with a rumbling belly

a sip of the bluest water from Lake Lucerene,

a leaping spark from an electric fish.

 

I will put into the box

 

three violet wishes spoken in Gujarati,

the last joke of an ancient uncle,

and the first smile of a baby.

 

I will put into the box

 

a fifth season and a black sun,

a cowboy on a broomstick

and a witch on a white horse.

 

My box is fashioned from ice and gold and steel,

with stars on the lid and secrets in the corners.

Its hinges are the toe joints of dinosaurs.

 

I shall surf in my box

on the great high-rolling breakers of the wild Atlantic,

then wash ashore on a yellow beach

the colour of the sun.

————————–

Your task today is to read the poem aloud three times, then answer the following questions:

  • What questions does it make you think of? (Find out the answers if you want to, but asking the question is important too!) For example: Where is Lake Lucerene?
  • What does it remind you of? For example: A Chinese Dragon reminds me of Chinese New Year.
  • Which parts do you like best? Answer using the word ‘because’. For example: I like the fourth verse best because everything is the wrong way around and it’s not what you expect.

If you’d like to read some more poems there’s loads on the internet. My favourites are…

 

Maths

How did you get on yesterday? Here are the answers:

Your maths home learning today is to have a go at an online lessons on unit and non-unit fractions from White Rose. There is a video and worksheet to have a go at. Let me know how you get on, especially as this is the first time we’ve done one of these.

Geography

Have a go at Geography Cities.

Hi everyone!

It’s Mr Owen here. I hope you’ve had a good weekend and have been able to enjoy the weather. I’ve taken over Y3’s home learning for now, so if you have any questions about it then please just email me: [email protected]

Reading

I love reading! I’m looking forward to sharing some awesome books and other texts with you.

I’d like to start off with something to get you thinking and talking about what books you like. Here are 10 questions to have a go at – you can just discuss them with someone, or you can write the answers down:

  1. List five or more books you like, writing down five reasons why they’re great.
  2. Ask someone else what their favourite book is and why.
  3. What’s your favourite book and why?
  4. If you could give the book another title, what would it be?
  5. Which characters would you like to meet in real life?
  6. What do you wish was different about the ending?
  7. List five or more different book genres (types of story). For example: adventure, crime etc. Books often mention this in the blurb on the back. Films have the same categories, so if you’re stuck, you could have a look at and DVDs you’ve got.
  8. Which genre is your favourite? Why?
  9. What genre haven’t you read much of yet? Why? Challenge yourself to read something new!
  10. Find three words in a book that you’re not sure about the meaning of, find out what they mean and how to use them and then write down three sentences to practise using them.

Maths

I love maths too! My dad was a maths teacher, so maybe that’s got something to do with it. Today I’ve got three challenges for you. Do at least two of them – the third is there if you want more!

Geography

We’re starting a new topic this term called ‘Explorers‘; so today, I’d like you to explore Europe by having a look at Google Earth (It’s awesome! Have a play!), Google Maps, an atlas or other map. Learn at least five countries in Europe (that aren’t in the UK) and their capitals off by heart – start off with three and build up… it’s easier. Notice how the map shows capitals differently to other cities.

For example, I know that Paris is the capital of our closest European neighbour, France.

Easter home learning

Posted on Monday 06 April 2020 by Mr Catherall

As it’s the Easter holidays, we’re taking a break from the daily home learning tasks. Instead, here are a range of activities that you might like to try over the two weeks. The tasks are creative and are designed to allow children the opportunity to enjoy some different learning, perhaps alongside family members. A few key points…

  • The list will be the same across year groups, meaning if you’ve more than one child, they might work on it together in some way.
  • Some of the tasks can take a bit longer, like a mini-project, and others match Creative homework tasks.
  • You can encourage your child to do some or all of the activities – they’re all optional.
  • During this time, you can still email your child’s class teacher about the home learning, although they may not respond as quickly as they have been doing.
  • Teachers will return to daily home learning tasks on Monday 20 April.

Art Attack

Andy Goldsworthy is a British artist who creates art using things he can find in nature. The artwork shown here was created using different leaf types and creating a pattern. He creates his art outside as he likes the fact that it’s temporary and won’t be around for long!

Create your own piece of art using different materials you can find around your home or in the garden. You could even create some ‘rubbish art’ using only items that have been used and would be thrown away or recycled.

Take some photographs and send them to your teachers.

Hunted

Create your own treasure hunt with cryptic clues for your family members to complete. Make the clues as tricky as you can. What could be the prize for the winning hunter? Maybe, this could tie in with a family Easter egg hunt.

Secret Message

Create your own invisible ink.

Using a spoon, mix water and lemon juice. Dip a cotton bud into the mixture and write a message onto the white paper. Wait for the juice to dry so your message becomes completely invisible. When you are ready to read your secret message or show it to someone else, heat the paper by holding it close to a light bulb – be careful: maybe ask an adult to do this part. As the mixture heats up, your message should reappear so people can read it again.

Alternatively, the same result can be achieved by writing the message on white paper with a white candle or crayon. Then, paint over the message using coloured paint to reveal the writing.

For a challenge, come up with your own way of making invisible ink and try it out on your family.

‘Board’ Silly

Design and create your own board game for you and your family to play – perhaps play some existing board games first to research ideas.

There are a few key things to think about:

  • What will your theme be?
  • Will there be any ‘snakes’ or ‘ladders’ style elements?
  • Do you need to make a dice using a cube net?
  • Will there be any extra challenges or forfeits if you land on certain numbers?

Enjoy your games!

 

Extreme Reading

Reading is a great way to relax and learn about the world around us; also, reading regularly can help us to stay happy and healthy. This challenge is all about making reading even more fun. We’d love to know how many places you can read in. Try to read in a different place each day. Take photos or draw a picture of you doing it, if you can.

You could read…

  • in a den that you’ve made
  • up a tree
  • under the bed/table
  • to the dog/cat
  • looking in a mirror

Stay safe and send your class teacher some pictures.

Come Dine/Bake with Me

Have your very own family ‘Come Dine With Me’ experience. Each family member could cook a meal or a course and then you must score each other out of ten. Similarly, each family member could bake something and you could all have a tasting after where you give points (like on Great British Bake Off). You don’t have to work on your own – you could help an adult.

Who will win?

Den Building

Who doesn’t love making a den? Either in your house, or in your garden, spend time building a den and enjoy some time relaxing in it – if there’s more than one of you, you could make it a competition. Use whatever materials you can find and see how creative you can get.

You could also read in it and combine this challenge with the ‘Extreme Reading’ one.

Get Ya Body Movin’

Staying physically active plays a crucial role in keeping us happy and healthy; it boosts our mental and emotional health, too. This task has three options – all of which are designed to get people moving during the holidays. You could include your family as well.

Option A: Create your own ‘Ninja Warrior’ style challenges in the garden or your house. Try to include a range of activities that include jumping, balancing, stretching, climbing and, if you’re feeling brave, water. The adults in your family will love a water challenge.

Option B: Create your own Joe Wicks style workout video. You could do it with your family or film yourself and send it to your friends. You might like to check out Joe Wicks’ YouTube channel for inspiration.

Option C: Choose your favourite song and create your own ‘Wake Up Shake Up’ (WUSU) dance routine. Again, you could lead this for your family to join in or film yourself and send it to friends or other family members. This’ll be a great way to get everyone dancing.

Morning everybody! Happy Friday!

Reading

Review

How did your poetry performance go? Perform the poem to an adult at home and ask for some feedback on your expression. Did you do a different voice for the dentist and for the crocodile? What does a crocodile who can speak even sound like? Did you include some actions?

Reflect on your learning: 

The best part of my poetry performance was…

I want to work on/get better at…

Today’s learning

Today, there is a RIC for you to answer!

R. What three words show that the dentist was, at first, scared of the crocodile?

I. Why did the crocodile repeat saying ‘do the back ones first’?

C. Find and copy words with the same meaning as:

cried –

smiling –

shouted –

gentle –

Spellings

Turn to the back of your home learning book and do a spellings test. Ask an adult (or older sibling) at home to test you on the words you learnt this week.

Or, if your adults are busy, fill in the gaps on these words. No sneaky peeking!

su_ _ _ _ine

_ _ l _p _ o _e

_ _ _ _ti _ _te

_ _ _ _ _ _opic

_ _ _ _on_ _ _ _s

_ _ _ _s _ope

_ _ _way

_ _ _ _vision

Maths

Today, you’re going to look at some tricky multiplication questions. You’ll need to be resilient and try different solutions to find the answer. You may even be able to find more than one answer. Warm up your multiplication muscles on this game.

Times tables

It’s time for a 8 times table test! Download the 8 times table sheet here. Time yourself to three minutes to fill it out or answer into your book. Good luck!

Writing

So what was on the other side of the fence? A monster?  An enormous, unexplained hole? Mr Wilks bouncing on the trampoline?

In this lesson, I’d like you to think about how the boy was feeling at different parts of your story (feel free to re-imagine it if you have new ideas).

For example: nervous, curious, excited, scared, shocked, etc.

I’d then like you to write six sentences beginning with a feeling. For example:

Curious, the boy peeked through the hole in the fence. 

Intrigued by the noise, the boy moved tentatively towards the garden. 

02 April 2020: Home learning

Posted on Thursday 02 April 2020 by Miss Clifford

Morning everyone! And a big virtual high five to you all.

Reading

Today, you’re going to be reading and performing poetry. Make sure to read the poem out loud at least five times so you’re familiar with it and reading it fluently. Ask an adult if you don’t understand anything in the poem.

Then watch this video which explains how to perform poetry like a professional.

The poem to read and perform is ‘The Dentist and the Crocodile’ by Roald Dahl.

Maths

Today, you’re going to apply your multiplication knowledge to money problems. When we multiply money, remember we can still set it out in the column method – if we need to.

First, sort this list of questions into 2 categories. Category A is the list you would need to use your column method to multiply and category B you wouldn’t need your column method. Think about:

  • is it a simple doubling?
  • is there going to be an exchange?
  • is there a simple related times table fact I can apply?

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some worded money multiplication questions. decide if you need to use the column method to multiply.

  1. How much does it cost to buy three bouncy balls?
  2. How much would two ice creams cost?
  3. How much would it cost to get the weekly Beano magazine for a whole month?
  4. How much would you spend in total if you were bought a birthday badge for five years straight?
  5. How mch would it cost to buy four glitter pen packs?
  6. How much would three ice creams cost?

Need a challenge?

These questions have two steps. First, you need to multiply (maybe twice) and then add your answers together.

  1. How much does it cost to buy two bouncy balls and two milkshakes?
  2. How much would two ice creams and three Beanos cost?
  3. How much would it cost to get two packs of glitter pens and four bouncy balls?
  4. How much would you spend in total if you got yourself and three friends a badge and an ice cream each?
  5. How much would it cost to buy four glitter pen packs and two milkshakes?
  6. How much would three ice creams and four milkshakes cost?

Writing

There was that noise again. This time it was louder and the ground trembled. I looked around to see if anyone else had heard it but my sister was too busy playing video games and my mum was on another Zoom conference call. I went into the garden and there it was again. A low rumbling noise. It was coming from next door’s garden. I tiptoed warily to the garden fence and peered through a hole. I couldn’t believe what I saw.

 

Continue the story. What did you see on the other side?

01 April 2020: Home learning

Posted on Wednesday 01 April 2020 by Miss Clifford

Hooray! It’s April. I never thought I would but I actually miss writing the date on the board. Obviously, I miss you all telling me I’ve written the wrong date from time to time, too!  Congratulations on making it to Wednesday – we’re half way though our week, our home learning and it’s almost Easter. I wonder how many of you have pulled an April fools’ joke at home… let me know!

Reading

Today, you’re going to draw the boy and the fox from the video ‘The Catch’ that you’ve been looking at this week.

Then, write a speech bubble suggesting what the two characters would say to each other at the beginning of the story. And then another one for each character, at the end. Make sure you rewatch the clip and check you feelings graph from yesterday to show how they were both feeling at the time.

Spellings

Practise your spellings today by using the ‘silly sentences’ method.

Maths

Today, we look at multiplication.

History

You guys have learned loads about the Romans and Celts (especially Boudicca) in this topic and you’ve really impressed me with your history knowledge and historical enquiry skills.

We’re going to end this topic by looking briefly at the people who invaded and settled in Britain after the Romans left: the Anglo-Saxons.

 

I’d like you to watch the video, do the activity and read the text on the following webpage (make sure Flash isn’t blocked as this might stop you watching the video).

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zxsbcdm/articles/zq2m6sg

Please answer the following questions about the Anglo-Saxons in any way you like. You could simply write or type the answers, create a poster, create a digital presentation, interview an Anglo-Saxon or Britain from the time. It is us to you (and your parents).

  1. When did the Anglo Saxon age begin in Britain?
  2. Where did the Anglo Saxons come from?
  3. Tick the answer that is true:
  4. The Anglo-Saxons were ruled by one king who took control of the whole of Britain.
  5. The Anglo-Saxons were made up of different tribes who settled in different parts of Britain.
  6. Who were the biggest tribes?
  7. When they weren’t fighting, what was the main job that Anglo Saxons did?
  8. What was life like for Anglo Saxon girls and boys?
  9. Name three types of crops that Anglo Saxon farms grew.
  10. Name two types of animal that Anglo-Saxon hunters used to help them catch their prey.

Challenge: Which period of history do you think was more advanced:  Roman or Anglo-Saxon Britain? Explain your reasons.

Posted on Tuesday 31 March 2020 by Miss Clifford

Good morning, everybody! Happy Tuesday. I hope you remembered your Love of Reading, guided reading books and your swimming kits! Here’s your home learning for today. Have fun!

Reading

Rewatch the short animation ‘The Catch’ (click here). Then, draw a feelings graph to show how the boy is feeling during key moments of the clip. An example of how to set out a feelings graph as shown, below.

The events go across the bottom of the graph. Suggested events to list are:

– Waiting with anticipation for the first catch,
– The distress caused by seeing the injured fox,
– Anger at the fox stealing the fish,
– Chasing the fox,
– Surprise and excitement at seeing the giant fish,
– Trying to catch it,
– The catch at the end.

Make sure to label the exact emotion to the event in the story.

Spellings

Practise your spellings today by using the ‘connect the dots’ method.

Maths

Today’s Maths continues with money and some more tricky problems. Make sure to ask an adult for help if you’re stuck.

Warm up by playing this game which helps you to practise giving change. Make sure it’s on pounds Stirling and 1 to 10 pounds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Times Tables

History

We’ve learnt loads about the Roman invasion of Britain and the effect that this had on Britains living there at the time – specifically Boudicca and the Iceni.

What we haven’t talked about is when and why the Roman Empire ended. Read the text below to find out why they left:

In AD410, the Roman Emperor Honorius sent a goodbye letter to the people of Britain. He wrote, “fight bravely and defend your lives…you are on your own now”. The city of Rome was under attack and the empire was falling apart, so the Romans had to leave to take care of things back home.

After they left, the country fell into chaos. Native tribes and foreign invaders battled each other for power. Many of the Roman towns in Britain crumbled away as people went back to living in the countryside.

In this history lesson, I’d like you to answer the following question:

Were the Romans good for Britain?

I’d like you to make a list or table of pros and cons and debate these with someone at home. Here are some key points to get you started (you decide of they’re pros or cons):

  • It nice to invade. You wouldn’t like it if I invaded your home!
  • The Romans treated Britains badly. They took their land, made them pay taxes, whipped them and killed them if they stood up to them.
  • The Romans tried to change how we lived (houses, religion, language).
  • The Romans protected us from other invaders.
  • The invented lots of things that made our lives better: straight roads, central heating, sewage systems.
  • They introduced things which had a big impact on Britain: calendar, language, Christianity.

Posted on Monday 30 March 2020 by Miss Clifford

Good morning, Year Three! How was your weekend? I spent mine in the garden getting lots of fresh air. It’s been great to see some of your home learning efforts at home. You’ve impressed me – well done!

Reading

Review

Check your comprehension answers from Friday against mine:

  1. (R) How does George react to the news?

She’s upset and angry because it says ‘It’s my castle!” she stormed to her mother’

  1. (R) How does Uncle Quentin react to George?

It says he was ‘surprised’ and ‘astonished’ at someone wanting to buy the Island for such a good price.

  1. (C) George didn’t use the best persuasive language to make Uncle Quentin change his mind! Present an argument to Uncle Quentin to persuade him to change his mind about selling the island. The challenge is: you can’t mention the map or the hidden ingots!

Write down a list of 4 reasons why the island shouldn’t be sold.  e.g. Because it might harm the rabbits living there.

A:

  1. Because they might not look after the Island and the shipwreck won’t be around to be explored anymore.
  2. Because people travelling to the island will cause traffic in Kirrin Bay.
  3. Because the island was promised to George by her mother.
  4. Because George hasn’t got brothers or sisters to play with and Kirrin Island is one of the only places she can go and explore nearby.
  5. (R) True or false:
  6. Uncle Quentin gave the island to the men from London. F
  7. Uncle Quentin bought the island from the men from London. F
  8. The men from London bought the island for over a hundred pounds. F
  9. The men have man have shown they want to buy the island but haven’t bought it yet. T
  10. (R) What does ‘ingots’ mean? gold
  11. In the text, Aunt Fanny says: “George dear, I did mean you to have them to play on, when I thought they couldn’t possibly be worth anything,” said her mother, looking distressed. “But now things are different. Your father has been offered quite a good sum, far more than we ever thought of getting- and we really can’t afford to turn it down.”

Why does George’s mother look distressed?

A – because she realises she’s made a promise she can’t keep to George. She doesn’t want to break it because George is unhappy and angry but also doesn’t want to make uncle Quentin angry because he really wants to sell it for the money.

  1. Write a thought, as Aunt Fanny, showing what she’s thinking while saying this to George.

A – I don’t want to upset George but she’s only a child and doesn’t understand that we can make a lot of money from selling the island. It’s the right thing to do. I wish George wouldn’t be so disappointed.

  1. Which sentence best summarises chapter 10? Write the letter down.
  2. Uncle Quentin gets an amazing offer for Kirrin Island but the children aren’t sure about it.
  3. Uncle Quentin gets an amazing offer for the old box but the children don’t want him to sell it.
  4. Uncle Quentin gets an offer for Kirrin Island and the children are slightly worried their secret has been discovered.
  5. Uncle Quentin gets an offer for Kirrin Island and the children are incredibly worried their secret has been discovered.

Today’s learning

Watch the short animation ‘The Catch’ (click here). Then answer the following retrieval questions. Remember you can rewind the clip and make sure to double check your answers.

  1. Draw the boy from the video and label different aspects of this character’s appearance.
  2. Describe the setting the video is set in.

Spelling

Here’s a list of words to learn this week. These words either have the prefix ‘sub’ or ‘tele’. Check you understand what they mean. Start by practising them with your best handwriting.

submarine / telephone / substitute / telescopic / subconcious / telescope / subway / television

Maths

Today’s learning

Today’s learning is all about money. There’s a couple of challenges to do.

First, warm up by playing this ‘custom cars’ game here.

Times tables

This week, you’re to focus on your 8 times table. There will be a test on Friday.

Science

Today, you’re going to be identifying materiels and testing to see if they’re translucent, transparent or opaque. Either print this sheet out or set a table out in your book based on the one below. Remember to think about what the material is (wood / plastic / wo0l) not what the item is (tree / toy / jumper).

Posted on Friday 27 March 2020 by Miss Clifford

Good morning and happy Friday!

How are your plants growing, Year 3? I’d love to see how well you’re taking care of them. Feel free to send me a picture of you with your Indeed Big Grow pot for our class news. Remember that, as well as other things, plants need the right level of sun and water to grow (don’t over-water them!). If yours isn’t growing just yet, don’t worry they may just be growing their roots in their soil. Be patient -your plant also needs time!

Reading

Review

How do your RIC answers compare to mine?  

R. The children were shocked that Uncle Quentin had sold the old box. Find and copy the word that shows their shock. ‘horror’

I. Why would the man from London pay such a high price for an old box? Because he probably knows that there may be something inside the box that tells him where to find the treasure on the island. Or, he’s suspicious

C. Explain what the statement, below, means:

 ‘Well this fellow collects curious things like that and he gave me a very good price for it’

It means that the man from London collects interesting/unusual things and paid uncle Quentin a lot of money for it.

Today’s learning

Today, you have a longer comprehension. Challenge yourself by having 30-40 minutes on this. Don’t rush. Make sure to go back and check your answers!

This is about chapter 10 (you can read it online here). Find the part where Uncle Quentin tells the children that Kirrin Island will be sold. You can also listen to it on audiobook  on thislink. Chapter 10 starts from 2:15:00.

  1. (R) How does George react to the news?
  2. (R) How does Uncle Quentin react to George?
  3. (C) George didn’t use the best persuasive language to make Uncle Quentin change his mind! Present an argument to Uncle Quentin to persuade him to change his mind about selling the island. The challenge is: you can’t mention the map or the hidden ingots!

Write down a list of 4 reasons why the island shouldn’t be sold.  e.g. Because it might harm the rabbits living there.

4. (R) True or false:

  • -Uncle Quentin gave the island to the men from London.

Today’s learning

Today, we focus on money. Remember – there’s 100 pence in one pound. Also remember, In Year Three we write pounds and pence like this:

4 pounds and 77 p. Not like this: £4.77p.

Warm up your Maths muscles with some money related games:

  1. Coin recognition and counting amounts – link here. Select ‘counting’ and ‘any 6 coins’.
  2. Ordering money – link here. Click ‘money’ and ‘mixed £ and p’.

Next, I want you to practise working out how much change you would get if you bought items. Have a go at the task, below.

Want a challenge?

Set up your own toy shop and add labels for (realistic) prices for each item. Make sure this is in pounds and pence. Then, choose your pocket money amount and work out what is the maximium number of items you could buy without going over your spending limit. Then, create your own rules for a game where you’re working out change in pounds and pence.

Times tables

It’s time for your Friday test! Get someone at home to read these questions out and test you on your x2s, x5s and x10s.

  1. 10 x 10 =
  2. 20 ÷ 2 =
  3. 15 ÷ 5 =
  4. 4 x 5 =
  5. 30 ÷ 10 =
  6. 12 x 2 =
  7. 8 x 5 =
  8. 4 x 2 =
  9. 18 ÷ 2 =
  10. 90 ÷ 10 =

Email me how you did. I’m sure you’ve smashed it, Year Three!

Mark your Writing from yesterday.

Today’s learning

Use the words and temperatures in the box to fill the gaps in the sentences. Put a tick next to the ones you’ve used so you don’t use them twice!

Optional challenge – ask your adult at home before you do this challenge.

Make some ice cubes and create a tower as tall as possible. Discuss what makes building the tower tricky and why?

Happy weekend, everybody!

I can’t believe it’s already the weekend! A whole week of home learning is ticked off – well done you! Here’s a list of ideas of things to do over the weekend. Remember to always be helpful, positive and kind to one another, just like you are in class. : )

  1. Think about how you could earn a Blue Peter badge – link here.
  2. Read for at least 20 minutes a day.
  3. Start your very own reading challenge:

4. Take part in a daily doodle challenge:

5. Investigate what household materiel makes the best parachute for your favourite toy. The challenge is to keep the toy in the air for as long as possible. (link here).

Have a great weekend. Stay safe, happy and healthy. From Miss C and Maggie (woof!).

26 March 2020: Home learning

Posted on Thursday 26 March 2020 by Miss Clifford

Good morning, friends! Another beautiful day and lots of opportunities to learn something new today. If you’ve got some more free time after your home learning, why not ask an adult or older sibling to help/show you:

  1. How how to tie your shoelaces.
  2. Do some cooking or baking (help make tea for your family at home).
  3. Play a board game. My favorite is Monopoly (but I keep running out of money!).
  4. Design a quiz based on what you’ve learnt in Computing/History/Maths this year and have everyone at home compete in a head-to-head challenge tonight. You decide the forfeit!

Reading

Review

Have an adult at home check that the words you replaced have the same meaning. Keep challenging yourself to use these words when you speak to your family at home.

Today’s learning

Today, we have a RIC. Remember – R= retrieve I=inference C= choice

The Famous Five

R. The children were shocked that Uncle Quentin had sold the old box. Find and copy the word that shows their shock.

I. Why would the man from London pay such a high price for an old box?

C. Explain what the statement, below, means:

‘Well this fellow collects curious things like that and he gave me a very good price for it’

Spellings

Practise your spellings today by using the ‘spelling jumps’ method.

happiness / loneliness / thoughtfully / painless / colourful / humming / wrapping / dripped / clapped / funniest / hottest / hopeful / wishful

Maths

Revisit

Check your answers from yesterday with a calculator and tell an adult how you did.

Today’s learning

Flex those Maths muscles of yours and warm up by either:

  1. Play ‘Think of a number’.Think of a number between 0-100 and get someone at home have to guess what it is They can ask questions like ‘is it less than 20?’ (yes/no questions).
  2. Play ‘which operation is missing’ here.

Today’s learning is fractions.

  1. Play ‘match the fractions’ here.
  2. Play ‘fraction wall’ here. Make sure it’s selected to ‘fractions’ with a denominator of up to 12 (at least) and then ‘scatter’. Your job is to rebuild the fraction wall. Then answer the following questions:
  3. How many thirds are equal to three sixths (3/6 or three out of six)?
  4. What other fractions are equal to four tenths (4/10 or four out of ten)?
  5. What fractions are equal to six twelfths (6/12 or six out of twelve)? Find all the possibilities.
  6. What fractions are equal to three eights (3/8 or three out of eight)? Find all the possibilities.
  7. Use the fraction wall to help you order these fractions in ascending (smallest to largest) order using >. Remember to use the fraction wall when it’s ‘tidy’ to help you to do this.

1           1          1          1          1          1          1         1          1         1          1

6           8         12         3          2         11         5         7          4         1         9
