Lines and Shapes Lesson 5: Drawing 2-Dimensional Shapes

Using our skills with angles and lines today we start to draw two dimensional shapes. We use a ruler to make sure our lines are straight and measured to the right length.  Use the lines in your book to help with your first line and measure from this. Remember to keep your fingers in the middle of the ruler and away from the edge or you might create a bumpy shape!

Lines and Shapes Lesson 4: 2 Dimensional Shapes

We start today’s lesson by using our mathematical knowledge and vocabulary to describe a shape. Think about our recent lessons and those on angles. How many lines does the shape have? How many angles can you see inside it? Can you name the angles? Are there any parallel, horizontal, vertical or perpendicular lines?

Keep these questions to hand throughout the lesson to help you describe the shapes you see using detailed mathematical vocabulary.

Moving on from perpendicular today we are looking for lines that are parallel to each other. We look for parallel lines around us and identify them with a small arrow on each line. We use letters to identify the ends of the lines to help us record which lines are parallel. We use capital letters as well as lines in shapes for our tasks.

 

Think about railway tracks and the sides of a door frame, these lines are parallel because they are the same distance apart.

Fractions: Lesson 9 – Recognise and show equivalent fractions.

We start today with fractions that are equal to ½. We start to understand that we can use our times tables to help us and the key fact to remember is that we always do exactly the same thing with our numerator and denominator.

 

We start to show our working out in a new way that shows the written fraction and the multiple that we are using.

 

 

 

This equivalent fraction shows that our numerator is multiplied by 2 (1 x 2 = 2), and our denominator is also multiplied by 2 (3 x 2 = 6).

Can you tell your grown-ups at home what animal type you are and whether you are an omnivore, carnivore or herbivore? 

 

All animals need to eat; they need to eat to get nutrients, these nutrients help animals to work properly, grow and say healthy. 

 

We will look at nutrients in the food we eat, how we can group food types and putting this into practice by looking at your own meals!

Fractions: Lesson 2 – Adding Fractions

In today’s lesson we are looking at adding two parts of a whole to make a whole. We are using a variety of different fractions. We will use number lines, bar models and number pairs to help us.

 

When drawing our bar models make sure that each block within it is same size – fractions are equal parts of a whole.

 

Remember, we add the numerator and the denominator won’t change.

 

We can use our knowledge of numberbonds to 10 to help us.

Fractions: Lesson 1 – Recap and Tenths

Today we will be looking at fractions. Firstly, a recap of what they are, what they look like and how we write them with an activity to find different fractions of shapes.

 

It’s very important to understand the word ‘fraction’ as equal parts of a whole – this can be a whole number, shape or object. We use very different words, numerator and denominator. The denominator is the number below the line and the numerator is always above it. The help to tell us what our whole one looks like, and how many parts of it we have. We can help our learning by using familiar items or shapes – pizza is cut into equal size slices, as is cake for example.

 

 

We then move onto counting with tenths looking at a rather large chocolate bar! You can do the lesson without chocolate, but it might help!

Lesson 4: Reading Bar Graphs 

 

Continuing to develop our understanding of reading and understanding bar graphs and the data they show we will use graphs with different styles and scales. Look carefully at the scale at the bottom of the first graph – what does each mark represent? What is its value? 

 

The graphs can represent the same information but read horizontally or vertically – the scale is either on the side or the bottom. It might help to use a ruler to line up the bar with the scale to read it accurately.

Ask a parent or family member to pretend to be the Hare and interview them. Record their responses and use it to write about how the Hare felt about the race.

 

Example questions: 

  • How did you feel after the race? 
  • Would you like a rematch and why? 
  • Why do you think the Tortoise challenged you to a race? 
  • Have you learnt anything from this experience? 
  • Why do you think the animals cheered for the Tortoise and not you?

Science: Animals including Humans 

Classification 

In this this new topic for our science lessons we are learning about animals including humans. We will look at different types of animals from all over the world and investigate the things that are needed to grow and stay healthy as well as how they move and what they need to eat.  

In this first lesson we are looking at classification, how we group animals together.  

Watch the BBC Bitesize clip to begin with and then think and discuss with your grown-ups at home what you know about different types of animals, what are the similarities? What are the differences?  

There are six main groups of animals, but also two that we are not as familiar with. See the pdf files for more information and characteristics of birds, mammals, insects, reptiles, amphibians, molluscs, insects and arthropods.  

  

Can you name and classify creatures that you know? Have a go!  

Here’s one to start with for you … there are many different types of spider, big ones, small ones and huge ones with hairy legs! They are all Arthropods. How many animals can you name and classify? Set a time of 5 minutes and have a go!  

  

  

Now for the challenge - can you sort animals depending on their classification? 

Make a chart like this one in your book:  

Animal Type 

Number Counted 

Amphibians 

  

  

Arthropods 

  

  

Birds 

  

  

Fish 

  

  

Insects 

  

  

Mammals 

  

  

Molluscs 

  

  

Reptiles 

  

  

  

Now, with your grown-ups go outside into the garden or if you go out for a walk make a tally chart, noting when you see a different type of animal – it might be hard to count everyone you see (a flock of birds might be tricky!) but each type might be easier! If you can name any of the creatures you see that would be fantastic and might just be a Dojo or two!  

You could watch the preview for the David Attenborough programme Seven Worlds, One Planet and do the same thing if it is wet or you want another challenge! Good luck Year 3!

Well today was one of the best days of my life! I started the day walking to Willy Wonka’s factory with Grandpa Joe. It was freezing cold - the snow crunched under my feet as the icy wind nipped at my face but I didn’t mind because I knew I would soon be inside the factory. When we arrived at the factory we were greeted by a rowdy crowd of reporters and Wonka fans and amongst them all were the other 4 lucky winners. I couldn’t believe my luck - I was about to go inside Wonka’s factory!

Measuring Time in Hours – Lesson 11

Today we will be looking at how to measure activities using hours. We are learning how to count on in hours from a time to find out what time an activity would finish. Using a number line to hop a full hour on is our starting method. Draw the number line in your exercise book to help you work it out, remember to write the time correctly – for example 11:45.

Science – Gravity and Air Resistance

Today we will investigate what causes things to fall, learning about Sir Isaac Newton – a very important scientist from history. We will also look at a force can act against gravity when objects travel through the air.

 

We have two short clips to watch which help us to understand gravity and air resistance before we experiment to see how some objects react when falling.

 

You’ll experiment with making your own parachute and seeing how your coat can slow you down!

 

Make sure you write up your findings using your knowledge and scientific vocabulary from your knowledge mat.

You can also copy the fill in the gaps challenge from the BBC Bitesize page into your exercise books.

Measuring Time in Seconds – Lesson 10

Today we are using the second hand on an analogue clock to measure time in seconds. We need to watch it very carefully as it moves quickly!

Each time the second hand goes around the clockface is one minute, the minute hand will move one small line between the numbers on the clock – the hour hand won’t move very much at all. Key facts to remember are that there are 60 (sixty) seconds in a minute and sixty (60) minutes in an hour. We will be counting seconds (written as s) in blocks of 5 using the numbers as our guide. For the worksheet the second hand does not look like an arrow to help us know (there are now 3 hands on the clock face).

Measuring Time in Seconds Lesson 9

Today we will be looking at time in seconds. Use a stopwatch if you have one or a stopwatch on a mobile phone to measure how long things take. You can come up with your own activities to time, how long it takes for your dog to fetch a ball perhaps, or how long it takes you and other family members to run around the garden. Remember to record your times accurately and find out which is fastest or took the longest.

English - Adverbial phrases.

In this lesson you will be learning to use adverbial phrases. Look at the slides below and read them carefully. An adverbial phrase has a Subject predicate (must include a verb) adverbial phrase starting with a conjunction. I have written some sentences out for you with the conjunctions missing use the word bank on the sheet OR the word mat on the first slide to complete the sentences in your exercise books. For an ‘Aiming High’ move the adverbial phrase to the front of the sentence. Make sure you use a comma to separate the adverbial phrase from the subject and predicate.

Topic

 

Today we will conduct product research.

Take some time to think about what we did last week – taste testing chocolates. What were our favourite ingredients? E.g. caramel, nuts, wafer, marshmallows, nougat, honey, smarties, mint etc.

Your task today is to make a simple survey to find out what the most favoured ingredients are in chocolates.

Your survey can be in your book or online using a free trial on www.surveymonkey.co.uk

Think back to your reading lessons in English and come up with some multiple-choice questions. Get your family to answer them – ring your friends or extended family and get them to answer your questions. Try and ask about 10 people if you can!

You can use my examples to get you started – why not change some of the options to make it your own?

 

e.g. Which do you prefer?

  1. Milk chocolate
  2. Dark chocolate
  3. White chocolate

 

What is your favrouite flavour?

  1. Mint
  2. Vanilla
  3. Strawberry

 

Do you like nuts?

  1. Yes
  2. No

 

Which filling would you prefer?

  1. Honeycomb
  2. Smarties
  3. Caramel
  4. Wafer

 

As you ask your family and friends for their answers, make a tally chart to keep records of your findings. Decide which ingredients would make the best chocolate bar based on your answers to your survey.

Challenge: Can you make a bar chart to show your results?

Telling the Time Lesson 8.

 

In today’s lesson we are using a stopwatch to measure time in seconds. We find out that a stopwatch sometimes measure time in part of a second. Use a stopwatch on a grown-up's mobile phone to complete the in-focus task comparing the time it takes for two of you to complete simple tasks like counting and clapping. You could experiment by comparing other things like walking for a set distance or number of steps.

Worksheet 8 asks you to tell us the time recorded a number of stopwatches. You need to tell us how much time is recorded – more than and less than are required.

Telling the time Lesson 6.

We’re using travel as the theme in today's lesson for in focus and looking at analogue and digital clocks to help us understand when travel times are. We are learning about telling the time using 24-hour clocks. Remember, as we go past 12pm we count on each hour, so 1pm would be 13:00, 2pm would be 14:00 and so on. If the time is in the am (morning) you would write 09:45 for 9:45am.

Worksheet 6 asks you to tell us the time using am or pm and the 24-hour clock with examples to help you.

 

Follow the videos helping you to work out the time and use the pictures from our Maths No Problem books and complete the worksheet questions (sent in Dojo) in your exercise books. Don’t forget to Dojo your teacher your work and ask any questions too.

Science – What makes things float?

Today we are going to continue our investigation of forces. This time it is buoyancy or up-thrust (the force that combined with gravity, makes things float or sink).

This BBC Bitesize clip gives you a summary of what buoyancy is and Mocomi go into more detail. Our activity today is to use this knowledge to make your own floating vessel!

 

The experiment requires something that you can make into a boat (the clip will help you, as will your knowledge of what they look like). You can use play-doh, plasticine, bluetak or even kitchen foil. You must be able to shape it to look like a boat. You’ll need some passengers for your boat as well, I chose Lego folk! Don’t forget to take pictures of you making and testing your boats!
