For the next 3 weeks, we will be focusing on ‘time’ as this is an ideal topic to practise at home.

Can I identify months and years?

Before we look at telling the time, we are going to spend some time looking at the key concepts of time.

Today we are going to start with months. There is a rhyme to remember how many days are in each month:

30 days has September,

April, June and November.

All the rest have 31.

Except for February, it is the one,

Which only has 28 days clear,

And 29 in each leap year.

1. Familiarise yourself with how many days are in each month by looking here. If you have a calendar at home, have a look through that too and use it to help you today.

2. Complete today's activities:

3. Check your answers.

Happy Friday year three! There will be no work set next week as it is 'half-term'. It is a great opportunity for you to have a rest and hopefully enjoy the sunshine.

We are in a strange and uncertain time, but what is certain is that we are living something that will make history. So, it is a good idea to try and capture this time to look back on- you could use next week to do this, I know a lot of you already are. You might want to write a lockdown diary, make a scapbook or create a time capsule like this one.

Have a wonderful week year 3 and keep looking for silver linings!

Can I subtract 1-digit from 3-digit numbers?

Remember- If we are subtracting a larger ones digit than the digit in the ones column, we have to exchange one ten for 10 ones. E.g. 132- 6

6 is greater than 2, so I need to exchange a ten for 10 ones so that I could do 12 -6

Teddy’s example below shows this. You might want to draw base 10 out like him to help you.

Bronze- Look at each method and use it to answer the questions below it.

Practical activity

If you have a pack of cards at home you could choose 3 cards to make a 3-digit number and then choose another card (number) to subtract from it.

This could also work if you have a dice, roll 3 numbers to make your first 3-digit number and the next roll will give you a number to subtract from it.

If you do not have a pack of cards or dice, you could ask someone to choose numbers randomly.

When we look at something in maths, I like you to think about why you are learning it. Why do we need to learn about fractions?

They are all around us, like:

  • Your arithmetic and spelling scores- 10/10 is a fraction it is 10 tenths, the same as 1 whole!
  • I am 2/3 of the way through my book.
  • Offer and sale prices- 1/2 price today only!
  • Recipes E.g. Add 2/5 of the chocolate chips.

Can you think of some more? Email me your ideas (mgoodwin@birklandsschool.co.uk)

Answer the fractions questions on this ‘Match of the Day’ video. This will help with today’s maths.

Maths task

Fractions work can be tricky and I know that some of you struggled with yesterday’s work, so we are going to go over it again. I want you to get a pencil and some paper and follow along with this video until 3 mins 30.

When we are finding a fraction of an amount we need to look at the denominator first.

  • Let's find 3/4 of 12.
  1. Divide the number by the denominator. So 12 ÷ 4 = 3.

This has told us what one quarter of 12 is, but I want to know what 3 quarters is so…

  1. Multiply your answer by the numerator. So 3 x 3 = 9

This is your answer, 3/4 of 12 is 9.

  • Let's do another one together: What is 5/9 of 27?
  1. Divide the number by the denominator. So 27 ÷ 9 = 3.
  2. Multiply your answer by the numerator. So 3 x 5 =15.

This is your answer, 5/9 of 27 is 15.

  • Have a go at this one by yourself. What is 2/8 of 32?
  1. Divide the number by the denominator. So 32 ÷ 8 = ?
  2. Multiply your answer by the numerator. So ? x 2 = ?

This is your answer, 2/8 of 32 is ?

Have a go at these by yourself. What is

  • 2/5 of 35?
  • 4/8 of 16?
  • 7/10 of 80?

Extension: Have another look at this steps to success poster. Create your own poster like this that shows someone how to find a fraction of an amount. I would love for you to email it to me and I can put them up in the classroom.
