Good Morning Year 3
Well done for another great week of home learning, you’re doing so well and we’re really proud of you all! Also, a big well done to those who joined us on zoom for our English lesson yesterday, we had some technical issues but you all did a wonderful job 🙂
Today in English we would like you to complete the activities on pages 26 and 27 which are all about using paragraphs. You will need to read part of a story and organise it into paragraphs. Paragraphs are a collection of sentences. They are used in writing to introduce new sections of a story, characters or pieces of information. Paragraphs help readers to enjoy what has been written because they break text up into easy-to-read sections. Make sure you read the text carefully and when you notice that the setting, character or information has change you will need to start a new paragraph.
The Maths activity today is all about ordering fractions. You will need to open your Maths workbook to page 30 and complete the questions on pages 30 and 31. Some of the questions ask you to order fractions which all have the same denominator (the bottom number), the denominator tells us how many pieces there are all together, for example:
3/10 8/10 7/10 2/10
If we were ordering these fractions from smallest to largest it would be
2/10 3/10 7/10 8/10
The other questions require you to order fractions that have the same numerator (number at the top), the numerator tells you how many pieces to shade in or count. When the numerators are the same it’s important that you compare the size of the denominator, when the denominator is higher the fraction will be smaller as there are more pieces. For example:
1/3 is bigger than 1/10 as a third is larger than a tenth.
We know that the past academic year has been very strange for everyone, we really wished that we could have all spent much more time together in the classroom. However, the time that we did spend together was brilliant. We would like you complete an activity all about your favourite memories from the year, they can be about things that have happened at school and at home. We’re looking forward to reading them and seeing your lovely handwriting too. The sheet for this task can be found in the resources section on the class homepage.
The weather hasn’t been great this week which makes it hard to get outside and exercise, that doesn’t mean you can’t get active indoors though. Why not try some yoga or Pilates, there are lots of beginner videos online for children (make sure you ask a parent or carer to help you find a video).
Keep sending us pictures of all the great work that you’re doing and as always we can be contacted on Class Dojo or via Facebook messenger.
Have a wonderful weekend and stay safe
Mrs Joesbury and Mrs Etheridge
