# Tuesday 23rd February

Good morning Year 3.

An amazing first day back yesterday, thank you for all your enthusiasm and engagement.

Please see below the time table and daily tasks for today where we are building on yesterdays Maths learning, progressing our project on FRUIT AND VEGETABLES and finding some time to get physical.

Maths times tables

With it being our second day back, I am going to ask you to continue practising whatever times table you feel least confident on using “Hit The Button” again.

How many can you beat yesterday’s best score by?

Bring your new best score with you for the 9.25am Maths call so I can see how you have got on.

09.25 – 10.15

Maths – Reading scales and intervals. Measuring volume

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

Today we are going to continue looking at reading scales and intervals when measuring.

Yesterday we looked at weighing scales used when we are baking to ensure we use the right amount of flour or baking powder for example.

Let’s look at some examples to refresh our memory…

Remember the three step process of…

STEP 1         Count how many intervals there are between the labelled numbers.

On this scale, there are five intervals between the 0 and 25.

STEP 2         To find out how much each interval is worth you would divide 25 (the difference                         between the labelled numbers) by 5 (the number of intervals).

25 divided by 5 = 5 so we know each interval on this scale is worth another 5g.

STEP 2          If you look at the arrow you can see it is…

Four interval beyond 125g so it is 125 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 145g.

OR

One interval short of 150g so 150 – 5 = 145g.

One more example…

STEP 1         On this scale, there are ten intervals between the 0 and 100.

STEP 2         100 divided by 10 = 10 so we know each interval on this scale is worth another 10g.

STEP 3         If you look at the arrow you can see it is five intervals beyond 200g.

So it is 200 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 = 250g

Now when following a recipe some ingredients are liquid and we therefore use a measuring jug to measure those out.

Here we measure in millilitres and litres but more on that in future lessons.

The good news… when measuring out liquids in a measuring jug or cylinder, we use the exact same three step process as above.

Let’s try some examples together…

Following the same 3 easy steps…

STEP 1         Count how many intervals there are between the labelled numbers.

On this scale, there are five intervals between the 0 and 50.

STEP 2         To find out how much each interval is worth you would divide 50 (the difference                         between the labelled numbers) by 5 (the number of intervals).

50 divided by 5 = 10 so we know each interval on this scale is worth another 10mls.

STEP 3         If you look at the arrow you can see it is two interval up from 0 so it is 10 + 10 =                        20ml.

Following those exact same steps, let’s look at one more example…

Whilst the measuring tool looks different, the steps are EXACTLY the same…

STEP 1         There are four intervals between the 0 and 100

STEP 2         100 divided by 4 = 25 so we know each interval on this scale is worth another 25ml.

STEP 3         The level is 2 intervals up from 400 so would do 400 + 25 + 25 = 450ml

Using these exact same steps, I want you to attempt the attached activity.

I have also attached an extension activity for you to look at if you have time. There is no one correct answer as it dependents on what scale you use, so I have put each jug in three times (reading downwards). Using different scales can you give me three different volumes for each? Have a go and let me know how you get on.

10.40 – 11.05

English – Punctuating a sentence.

KS2 English

Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Targeted Question Book

Page 44 and 45.

Building on yesterday’s punctuating sentences, I want you to use the same skills to complete pages 44 and 45 in your SPaG exercise book.

Before completing have a thing about…

When do we use capital letters? Is it always JUST the first word of every sentence?

When do we use a question mark instead of a full stop?

How can we tell if the sentence is a question or a statement?

What words do exclamation sentences always starter with? That’s right “What”.

11.05 – 12.00

English – Where Does Our Food Come From?

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

Building on our new theme of “Fruit and Vegetables”, today we are going to look at where certain foods come from.

This is an interesting text and uses sub-heading so it is quite easy to navigate around the text looking for answers to the questions.

Let’s just take a moment to remember our comprehension rules…

• Read the text three times before even looking at the questions!
• Remember to underline the key information.
• Do not be afraid to move on if you cannot answer a question then you can return to it at the end.
• The answers are in the text, all you have to do is find them!
• Be sure to read the question carefully. If it asks for two things, give two answers.

Follow these rules, take your time, and I am sure you will all do amazing.

Please be sure to complete this task as it will be essential for our English activity on Wednesday!

1.00pm – 1.20pm

Let’s continue using these 20 minutes to read a book on Bug Club.

I have reviewed anyone who has less than 3 books remaining and when they have scored over 80% on the questions I have moved them up to the next book band.

I will continue to do this so please continue logging onto Bug Club, reading the books and answering the questions.

If you have any questions about the Bug Club books or colour bands or even logging in issues please do not hesitate to message me via Class Dojo.

1.20pm – 2.20pm

PE

Did you do lots of exercise over the holiday?

Did you alittle bit of exercise over the week?

Or being honest, did you do nothing much apart from walking up and down your stairs (if you have any).

Whichever of these are the truth, we are going to get our heart rate up and hopefully get all sweaty.

Once again, I am going to give you a choice of activity, followed by a PE Challenge which I know you have all enjoyed when we have tried them previously.

So clear some space, attempt one of the three workouts below, then the PE Challenge.

Don’t forget to ask your adults to send me pictures of your workout and attempting the challenge via Class Dojo so I can see who is giving it a go.

2.20pm – 2.35pm
