Times Table Practise

Well done Year 3, I have seen some amazing improvement on your Hit The Button scores!

Because of this, I am going to let you practise any times table you want this morning.

Want to carry on practising your 4 times table? Go on then.

Fancy revisiting the 3 times table? Give it a try.

Think you can crack the 11 times table? Off you go then.

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 continue looking at money, and how to find the cost of multiple items.


Using the same Grocery Store Price List from yesterday, I want you to create your own shopping lists and calculate how much money you would need to buy those items.

How about creating a shopping list that has 4 items on? Could you make a shopping list with 5 items on? What if you choose 6 items? Could you work out the cost of any 10 items?


Could anyone work out how much it would cost if you bought one of everything on the Price List?



No matter how many items you choose, as long as you remember the basics for column addition you will be fine.


  • As with any column addition, please ensure you have each number in the correct place.
  • Many of the problems I saw yesterday was because people were forgetting the importance of ‘layout layout layout’.
  • Even though we are talking about money, is it the exact same as any column addition you do during Four Rules Friday.
  •  If you are exchanging, please do not forget to include the extra numbers when you add that column.
  • Always show your working out! It is easy to make a simple mistake so please, no mater what the addition, write out the column method.




If I bought two bananas and one pineapple how much would that cost?

If I then paid with a £5 note, how much change would I get back?


What operation would we use to find the DIFFERENCE between the cost of the basket and how much we paid?

Then all you need to worry about it putting the £5 in the right value column.


What change would I get from £5 if I bought some cheese and a pepper?


What change would I get from £10 if I bought some chocolate, milk and a pack of strawberrys?




10.40 – 11.05

English – Capital Letters

KS2 English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Targeted Question Book

Pages 36 and 37.


Who is getting bored with Mr Gilbey constantly going on about capital letters?

Well here is your opportunity to make sure I never (well you know what I mean) mention them again.

These two pages are your chance to show me you know capital letters should always be used for names and when writing the word ‘I’.

It really is as simple as that.

Be sure to read the question carefully and when you are asked to rewrite a sentence with the capital letters, take your time, ensure you have ALL the capital letters added and you do it in your neatest handwriting.




11.05 – 12.00

English – Short story writing.


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


Having spoken to a couple of you yesterday, today we are spending our main English lesson writing a short story.

Below is an image and the start of a story.



The King had known that the gift he presented to his children on their 5th birthday was dangerous. He was prepared to take the risk of letting them own a pet dragon, however. One day, the twins would rule the kingdom together, and they would need all the help they could get. No-one could deny that a dragon was a powerful ally!

Before that day, though, the children had much work to do.

They had to train their dragon!



Now, why don’t you carry the story on?

You could write it in the form of a fiction story like we wrote last week.

Or you could write it as a diary entry from one of the twin’s view on how the training has gone.


Thinking about the below questions might help you with some ideas for your writing…

  • What do you think the children will try and train their dragon to do?
  • Can you think of any strategies that the children might use to train their dragon?
  • Can you think of names for the children and the dragon?



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



In today’s Spanish lesson we are going to learn how to say and read colours.

Firstly please watch the below video repeating the Spanish words for colours when asked.

You might choose to do this video a couple of times before attempting the games below.

Spanish: Saying 6 colours

Enabling children to say 6 colours in Spanish.

Once you feel confident in recognising the names of the 6 colours in Spanish, why not play one or both of the games below.
