Friday, 3rd July

Hello everyone!




We're at Friday again already! These weeks are going fast.


 I hope you have a lovely weekend.


Mrs T



Here are today's tasks...



Warm up

Practice halving on Hit the Button.


Main session

It's Arithmetic Friday.            


I am going to give you previous years Maths Arithmetic SAT papers for the last few weeks. These are no different to what you have been doing for the last few weeks. 


It's really important that we continue to focus on basic arithmetic. This is about being able to work out the answers to sums fairly quickly which we do by learning number bonds and our multiplication facts and by spotting patterns.


Our reviews will cover all operations along with fractions. The review gets harder as you progress through it. Remember to use your written methods/drawings to help you answer the questions, you won't be able to do them all mentally (mainly the last few).


You don't have to print the sheet off, you can always just do your working out and write the answers down on a separate piece of paper. 


The sheet says 30 minutes but please do not worry if it takes you a little longer. You will get quicker the more you practice. As I always tell you in class, if you get stuck on one move to the next one and come back to it at the end. 


Good luck!





Spike: The Hedgehog Who Lost His Prickles

Spike the hedgehog wakes up one morning without his prickles – he is completely bare! He tries lots of different ways to cover himself up as he is so embarrassed - a frilly paper lampshade, a plate and even a sock. In the end, the balloons save the day. Will he get his prickles back?

Watch TV presenter Naomi Wilkinson read an extract from Spike: The Hedgehog Who Lost His Prickles.



Watch the videos and complete the activities.





Bonjour! As I have mentioned before, in Year 3 you still start to learn French. Lets impressive Madame Bell by showing her you already know some. We have looked at greetings and numbers and today we will move on to food. 


Watch the video and listen to the pronunciations.



Afterwards have a go at pronouncing the words and forming and saying some sentences.
