For your final maths task this term, you need to find fractions of amounts. Remember, the number on the bottom is called the denominator and it tells you how many equal pieces or groups to divide the whole into. The number on the top is called the numerator and it tells you how many of those equal pieces or groups to count. You need to divide by the bottom and then multiply by the top.
You will also need to reason and explain your answers- when you are asked to explain why, try to use the word because.
One question asks you to draw a bar model. Bar models show a calculation as a picture like this:
Remember, in a bar model, the largest number goes on the top.
Please ask if you have any questions. Mrs Sharples 🙂
Quentin Blake is an artist and
writer, who is perhaps best known
for illustrating Roald Dahl’s stories
and poems. His drawings are easy to
recognise and very funny to look at.
In 2007, Quentin Blake was asked to
design a huge 16-metre-high mural
on fabric to ‘wrap’ an empty building
opposite St. Pancras railway station
in London. Passengers arriving at the
newly opened station are now greeted
by a range of comical characters, eating and drinking, dancing and singing.
Your challenge is to design your own mural to cover up a boring looking
building! You should include characters from Roald Dahl books. You could base the mural on just one book or you could include a mix of characters from different books. What could your characters be doing? How will they interact in the mural? What will bring them together?
Think carefully about which building you would like to ‘wrap’ and why, as well as how to
illustrate the story.
If you can, send your finished designs into the super learner email address, I would love to see them.
Be creative and have fun. Mrs Sharples 🙂
Your last science challenge of the term is to try this quiz.
As you read the questions and look at the pictures, try to think of links to the science topics that you have covered. There might be questions linked to topics that you haven’t covered since Autumn term or ones that you haven’t had the chance to cover yet- don’t worry. If you struggle with any of the questions, you can check your knowledge organisers or look up the answers after.
If you can, do the quiz with someone at home, explain your answers to them.
Remember to ask if you have any questions.
Mrs Sharples 🙂
This week, I would like you to learn the spellings and test yourself at the end of the week as usual. I would also like you to write a definition for each word.
Let me know if you manage to beat you weekly score.
Keep up the super learning at home Year 3 . Mrs Sharples 🙂
