Year 3 Home Learning Tuesday 2.2.21

It was lovely  to see so many of you on the live lesson today. Thank you all for working so hard. Here are some more activities for you.

English

L.O. To be able to write effective sentences to describe a dragon (character in the story).

We will write some more sentences together in the live lesson today and then there will be some extra sentences to modify for your independent task. 

Download the document from the bottom of the blog. Work through from the start if you didn’t do the live lesson or find the tasks following the live lesson if you have already done the live lesson tasks.

 

Maths Task

L.O: To learn how to multiply 2 digits by 1 digit (with exchange)

Please bring some objects such as Lego bricks, pasta or buttons to the live lessons this week to help you with your multiplying.

Can you remember what method we used in yesterday’s live lesson?

Use items or place value counters to answer these calculations:

  1. 15 x 3 =
  2. 23 x 4 =
  3. 34 x 3 =

Remember to move your items from the ones column to the tens column if you need to exchange.

Today we will use the pictorial method. To solve 23 x 6. First partition 23 into tens and ones. 23 has 2 tens so draw them in the tens column. 23 has 3 ones so draw them in the ones column. We are multiplying by 6, so make sure you draw 6 rows of 2 tens and 3 ones.

Count up the counters in the ones column. You will see that there are 18 ones counters. If the number of counters is 10 or more, we need to exchange 10 counters for a ten and move it into the next column. Circle 10 ones, draw an arrow to the tens column and draw an extra ten counter.

Next, count the counters in the tens column. You will see that there are now 13 tens counters.  Again, the number of counters is more than 10, so we need to exchange. Circle 10 tens counters and arrow to hundreds column and draw a hundred.

First, count all of the counters that are not circled in the ones column (8), then count all of the counters that are not circled in the tens column (3) and finally, count all of the counters in the hundreds column (1).

Add them all up – 100 + 30 + 8 = 138. Therefore, 23 x 6 = 138.  

Have a go at using the pictorial method to solve these calculations again:

  1. 15 x 3 =
  2. 23 x 4 =
  3. 34 x 3 =

For your independent task, you can choose your own level of challenge. However, if you want to continue using items or place value counters, the blue questions would be a good place to start. All of the challenges today involve exchanging.

Blue Challenge: Download Tuesday’s maths PPT – Have a look at the table on slide 2. Answer the blue questions using objects from home or place value counters to help you.

Green Challenge: Download Tuesday’s maths PPT – Have a look at the table on slide 2. Answer the green questions, recording your answers pictorially.

White Challenge: Download the white maths challenge document – Answer the word problems, recording your answers pictorially.

 

PE

We hope that you are enjoying keeping active and that you are able to find some time to do some exercise each week.  Look back at the PE log you completed last week, maybe you could try to complete even more exercise this week?

Attached are some activity cards showing some exercises, you could try to practise these at home.  Can you think of any other exercises? You could even have a go at making your own cards!

Have fun keeping active!

 

Music

LO – To understand pulse and rhythm

Here is the next lesson about pulse and rhythm from the Oak National Academy. You will need a plastic cup for the main activity today. It looks great fun!

The children will do this lesson in school on Monday 1.2.21.
