Times Table Practise

You continue to improve on your times tables scores Year 3, the practise is really paying off.

Today is going to be the last time we use this slot for times table practise so let’s make the most of it.

Choose the times table you want to practise and give it a go.

Be sure to make a note of the first score you achieve today, and then hopefully by the end of the session you will have a much higher, better score!

If you do not have access to the internet at this time, please continue working with your adult to become fluent in your times tables. Choose a times table, then ask your adult to pick a number between 0 and 12. Your job is to then shout out what that number is, multiplied by the times table you selected. For example, if you choose to work on your 3 times table and your adult shouts out 4, you would work out what 3 x 4 is and shout out the answer (12). How quickly can you answer your adult? How many can you answer in 1 minute?



09.25 – 10.15

Maths – Money!


Google Classroom video call at 09.25am for the first 15 minutes.


Today we are going to build on our previous learning about money to calculate the amount of change we should get when buying certain items.

Let’s use the below price list to work through some examples…


If I was sent out by Mrs Gilbey to buy a banana with a £1 coin, how much change would she be expecting?


We are effectively working out the difference between the cost of an item and how much we paid.

As you know to find the difference between two amounts we use… SUBTRACTION.


The next point to remember is getting the amounts in the correct column. If we are paying with £1, the 1 needs to go to the left of the decimal point.  


As long as you do this, it is just a regular column subtraction that you are all amazing at.

So let’s work this example through…


As long as you follow those steps you will be able to work out the change you should get when buying something, no matter how expensive it is. Let’s prove it by trying another example.


This time Mrs Gilbey sends me out to buy some chocolate with a £5 note.



Keeping in mind these tips, give the attached a go and calculate how much change you would get each time.

11.05 – 12.00

English – Premier League Primary Stars Daily routine


Google Classroom video call at 11.05am for the first 15 minutes.


Today we are going to think about how everyday routines, and building activities into it can help improve both your physical and mental health.

Firstly please watch the below video from radio and TV presenter Roman Kemp.

Next, using what we have just thought about read the attached story about Sam’s daily routine.

Its true Sam had a difficult day, but it might have gone better if he had made some different choices.

Can you find three things he could have done differently that might have improved his day? What could he have done instead?

Finally, think about how you could build activities into your day to help you feel good by boosting your mental health

Can you include something creative? Something to keep you active every day? Maybe some time to learn a new skill?

Have a look at the below attachment and put some activities in your schedule.

If you are stuck for some ideas, there are some on the second page of the attachment can might help.

1.00pm – 1.20pm

Quiet Reading Time

Settle down with a pillow, snuggle under a blanket and get comfortable.

Time for another 20 minutes quiet reading.


A couple of Bug Club reminders …

  • It is NOT how quickly you read the books that will decide if you move up book bands.
  • It is actually how you score on the questions that you are asked throughout the book.
  • Therefore please read the book several times before even attempting the questions.


If you one of the class not yet logged onto Bug Club, please see below some easy steps on how you can log on and start reading.



1.20pm – 2.20pm



Today we are going to break form PE with Joe or Cosmic Yoga and we are going to create our own fitness circuit.


Step 1

Come up with 4/5/6 different exercises and a number of repetition you will do.

For example…

Star Jumps x 10,

Sit ups x 10,

Running on the spot x 1 minute.

Hoping on one foot x 1 minute

Feel free to be as creative as you want with these moves.


Step 2

Allocate each exercise to different areas around a room (or outside if the weather allows).

These will be the spots where you complete each exercise so make sure you have enough room to complete the exercise without knocking anything over.



Step 3

Give each exercise a number, then write those numbers on small pieces of paper and fold them up (so you can’t see what number is written on each piece of paper) and put them in a bowl.



Set a timer for 5 minutes and start it.

Pick a piece of paper from the bowl to reveal what exercise you need to do.

Go to that spot and complete the exercise as quickly as possible.

Then put that piece of paper back in the bowl and pick again.

How many exercises can you complete before the 5 minute timer goes off?


Catch your breath, have a drink, reset your timer, then start the process again and try to complete more exercises in the same time.


Good luck!



2.20pm – 2.35pm
