Coming next week in Year 3!

Posted by Priory School

Week beginning 23.01.17

Next week in our English lessons we will be writing our own reports about Roman gladiators. We will be applying our knowledge of paragraphing, extending noun phrases and writing in the second person. We will also be using different sentence types including statements, questions, exclamations and interjections.

In Maths we will continue to work on recalling and using multiplication and division facts for the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 10 times tables. The following link is a great resource to help children practice their tables. http://www.math-salamanders.com/times-tables-practice.html

Learning quick recall of the multiplication tables is so important and practice at home will have a really positive impact on your child’s learning. We will  continue using the grid method to multiply 2 and 3 digit numbers by a single digit and move on to teaching the more formal method for written long multiplication.

Coming Next Week in Year 3!

Week beginning 16.01.17

 

Next week in our English lessons we will be teaching the skills needed for writing  reports about Roman gladiators. We will be focusing on how to use paragraphs to organise information, extending noun phrases and writing in the second person. We will also be looking at different sentence types including statements, questions, exclamations and interjections.

In Maths we will continue to work on recalling and using multiplication and division facts for the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 10 times tables. We will also be teaching the grid method to multiply 2 digit numbers. This method involves partitioning the larger number and lays the foundations for learning the more formal written method for long multiplication.

Take a look at this clip to see how this method works.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_2fiYzEf8A

Coming next week in Year 3!

Next week in our English lessons we will be focusing on different types of  poetry. The children will start the week by exploring alliteration through reading and writing tongue twisters. We will also be performing poems using different voices, speeds, volume and adding actions.

In Maths we will be focusing on length. The children will be using different equipment to practically measure and estimate length. We will also be using rulers to draw 2D shapes to specific measurements (to the nearest half cm). Later on in the week we will be using different calculations to solve worded problems and mathematical puzzles involving measure.
