Friday 8th January 2021

Good Morning Year 3! It's Friday today! 

You have all worked so hard this week and I have very much enjoyed reading and responding to all the messages on Seesaw. Also, a very big thank you to everybody who joined the group reading sessions yesterday on Teams! 

There is another Teams meeting at 10:30 this morning for our English lesson. We will be using our sentences from Tuesday to retell the beginning of 'Fox'. I look forward to seeing you all then!

If you wish to do so, there is a pack which you can collect from school throughout the day. Inside we have provided a whiteboard, whiteboard pen, jotter book, pencil and some other items of stationary for you to use over the next few weeks. The whiteboards inside the pack are named so please check you take the pack with the correctly labelled whiteboard inside. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Miss Bass

 

 

Maths

Starter - Spend no longer than 15 minutes on Prodigy. If you would like to practise your times tables instead, I have uploaded some activities at the bottom of the page.

 

Today we are using our multiplication knowledge to compare statements. When you are comparing two multiplication sums, remember to work out both sides before writing <, = or >. 

Please watch the video first -> https://vimeo.com/485433674
