Year 3

Friday 3rd July

 

FRACTIONS 2

 

Lesson 5 - Learning from previous lessons will be built upon and applied to a linear model to represent unit fractions. This lesson involves dividing paper strips into equal parts before then naming and writing the fraction notation

Thursday 2nd July

 

FRACTIONS 2

 

Lesson 4 -  Pupils will begin to assign a name to some unit fractions such as ‘one half’, ‘one quarter’ and will be able to extend this to some less familiar ones such as ‘one fifty-seventh’ because they understand the meaning. They build on previous learning by matching representations, fraction names and notation.

Wednesday 1st July

 

FRACTIONS 2

 

Lesson 3 -  In this lesson, the terms ‘numerator’ and ‘denominator’ are introduced and the understanding of what each of these represents is reinforced.

Tuesday 30th June

 

FRACTIONS 2

 

Lesson 2 -  Pupils will learn to write formal notation of writing unit fractions and most importantly, will understand what each section means. A variety of common and less common 2D shapes are used to demonstrate this. This is the first time the term ‘fraction’ is used.

Week Commencing 29th June 2020

 

Hello Year 3!  The team are hoping you are all keeping safe and well and (hopefully) managing to get out and about a little more now lock-down is slowly easing.  As ever, please make sure you are keeping on top of your work.  We are setting plenty for you all to do on Education City and Reading Eggs and there are also the Home Learning Packs for you to download or collect from the Office at school.  Remember, we can see who is completing the work online.  The number of children completing the work remains low which is a shame so please endeavour to complete what you can when you can.

 

Stay safe and please contact the school if you are struggling or stuck with anything.  We are now in Monday - Thursday.  Take care!

 

Monday 29th June

 

FRACTIONS 2

 

Lesson 1 -  Pupils will discover that the same whole can be divided into a differing number of equal parts. There is an opportunity to rehearse the associated language with this and to apply this knowledge to different contexts.

Friday 26th June

 

Exciting News!

There will now be a new maths video each day for you to watch and learn.

 

Lesson 10 -  Once confident with the concept of building wholes from parts using the area model, this lesson gives the opportunity for children to iterate fractions in different contexts and addresses some possible misconceptions that could occur.

Thursday 25th June

 

Exciting News!

There will now be a new maths video each day for you to watch and learn.

 

Lesson 9 -  In this lesson, the children consider, if we know one part of the whole what could the whole look like if all the parts are identical? This is often something children have limited practice of and is important to ensure a deep understanding of the part-whole relationship. It is vital they know the size of the whole in order to create these.  

Wednesday 24th June

 

Make sure you keep checking Education City, Purple Mash and Reading Eggs as your teachers are constantly setting new and exciting activities for you.

Lesson 8 -    Consider part-whole relationships within the context of quantity models

Tuesday 23rd June

 

Exciting News!

There will now be a new maths video each day for you to watch and learn.

 

Lesson 7 -   Explore that size of part is relative to the size of the whole using familiar contexts

Monday 22nd June

 

Exciting News!

There will now be a new maths video each day for you to watch and learn.

 

Lesson 6 -  Pupils will compare the size of parts when the whole is defined using familiar contexts

Here is this week's Home Learning Pack, along with parental guidance. You can also pick up a paper copy from the school office if you need to.

Friday 19th June

 

Exciting News!

There will now be a new maths video each day for you to watch and learn.

 

Lesson 5 - Pupils continue to look at equal and unequal parts. Attention is drawn to the fact that equal-sized parts do not have to look the same.

Thursday 18th June

 

Exciting News!

There will now be a new maths video each day for you to watch and learn.

 

Lesson 4 - Pupils embed the concept of equal parts and unequal parts and move to seeing examples of this within a linear model with paper strips and then on a number line. This lesson finishes with the important part that if we know the size and total number of equal parts, we can replicate the whole.

Wednesday 17th June

 

Make sure you keep checking Education City, Purple Mash and Reading Eggs as your teachers are constantly setting new and exciting activities for you.

Wednesday 17th June

 

Exciting News!

There will now be a new maths video each day for you to watch and learn.

 

Lesson 3 - This lesson focuses on the concept of ‘equal’ and ‘unequal’ parts and aims to address some potential misconceptions related to this. The area model of representation is presented to children as a vehicle to master this.

Tuesday 16th June

 

Exciting News!

There will now be a new maths video each day for you to watch and learn.

 

Lesson 2 - Pupils continue to explore the whole and part relationship and generalise that a part is always smaller than the whole but that the whole can change. It is important that the children understand that there are many ways to define a whole and only when this is done is it possible to define a part.

Monday 15th June

 

Exciting News!

There will now be a new maths video each day for you to watch and learn.

 

Lesson 1 - Pupils begin to explore the whole and part relationship in familiar contexts. It moves from an area model using a map, to a linear model using a journey and then to a quantity context. The stem sentence is ‘If ___ is the whole, then ___ is part of the whole’.

Fractions - Lesson 1

Here is this week's Home Learning Pack, along with parental guidance. You can also pick up a paper copy from the school office if you need to.

Here are some other tasks you could have a go at doing if you get an opportunity.

 

Rainforests

As I'm sure you remember, we were learning all about rainforests before we finished school.  Have a look at this link - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zfp34wx. When you have read it and watched the clip, write a paragraph to summarise what you have find out OR you can design and create a poster highlighting the threats to the rainforest.

 

Science

Plant a seed and look after a plant!  Fill a plant pot with compost and sow a seed(s).  Water the compost a little every other day.  Keep a diary and where possible, take photos if you like to record how the plant grows.  If you have no seeds, research how a plant grows and a write a short paragraph to explain.

 

Computing

Remember to STAY SAFE online!  Maybe you could design a nice poster to explain how to stay safe when you're on the internet.

 

There's probably more than enough to keep you all occupied.  Remember, keep checking this page for updated tasks and STAY SAFE.  We miss you all!!!

English

During the first half of the spring term year 3 will be focusing on persuasive writing and poetry. This will be taught through a high quality text: The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry.  During the second half of the term we will be reading Harry the Poisonous Centipede goes to sea by Lynne Reid Banks and writing stories and instructions based on the text.

 

Maths

This term we will continue working through our Power Maths books. We will be learning new method to multiply and divide larger numbers. We will also cover money, statistics, length and fractions. We will begin to solve problems and use Maths in real life contexts.  We will continue to learn our times tables and recap our Maths methods in order to help children with all areas of Maths.

 

Science

 

In science we will be learning about plants. We will learn about the different parts of plants and their importance for the plant’s survival. We will also learn about the what plants require to thrive. During the second half of the term we will be investigating the different types of rocks and soil. We will learnt about the properties of different rocks and what uses they could have.

 

PE

The days for PE for each year 3 class are as follows;

3A - Wednesday and Thursday

3B -  Wednesday and Thursday

3C -  Tuesday and Thursday

 

Children should  have their P.E. kits in school every day, consisting of: black shorts, house t-shirt of appropriate colour and black school pumps (not trainers) in a bag please.  Please ensure that all items have names on them. This term we are covering dance, outside activities, tag rugby and cricket.

 

Please make sure that jewellery is not worn by your child on their PE day. Jewellery needs to be removed before they come to school as staff are not allowed to remove it. Thank you.

 

Spellings

Your child will be receiving spellings every Friday.  Please practise these at home with your child in preparation for the spelling tests which will take place every Thursday or Friday.
