Year 3 – Tuesday 28th April

Good Morning Year 3

Happy Tuesday, We have been receiving lots of emails with fantastic pieces of work. Your work ethic with all your home learning has made all of your teachers very proud, so keep this up! Keep looking through the pictures of work as these change daily and you might be able to spot yours.

After your lovely sunny weekends, it seems that the sun has gone for a rest for a while. What else could you be doing on the rainy days that are coming up this week? Some baking? Maybe some reading in cosy corner? There is a book link below you could use to hear the story of Kid Normal. Do some more research on bees? Play some games with your family?

One of the Year 3 children has found this brilliant video on beekeeping and wanted to share it with everyone else. What lovely teamwork from the bees! Thank you Marcus for finding this for us. Click Here.

Today, we are continuing our work on Fractions using the White Rose Maths Lessons. This will involve watching the video clip and completing the worksheet.  There is an answer sheet to check your work. 

Please complete Summer Term Week 1 Lesson 2 – Equivalent Fractions 3 – This lesson builds on your knowledge from yesterday’s work on equivalent fractions, you will use a fraction wall to compare fractions and to help you find equivalent fractions.

You can find the video and resources for today’s lesson here 

Make sure you click on Summer Term week 1, Lesson 2 Watch the clip and follow the instructions.


Resources you will need: 
Please remember if you don’t have a printer you can copy into your maths book or onto paper. Try and complete as best as you can. 

Don’t forget Miss Goddard’s challenges: click here.

When you have finished use the answer sheet to mark your work. 

Things to remember

  • Use your fraction wall to help compare the fractions.
  • Remember the numerator tells you how many parts of the whole you are looking at so if you are finding 3/8 you can count three 1/8 sections on your fraction wall.
  • You can multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number to give you an equivalent fraction e.g. An equivalent fraction to 2/5 = 4/10 because if we look at 2/5 the numerator of 2 x2 = 4 and the denominator 5 x 2 = 10 so this creates the fraction 4/10.

English/ Bookclub 

For today’s English you are going to need a dictionary or a computer to search for the meanings of some of the words from the book.
Once you have done that can you draw a picture to help represent the word? Can you write them in a sentence too? 

Resources you will need: 

  • A dictionary or computer 
  • Paper or your book
