Click here or e-mail enquires@walkley.sheffield.sch.uk to send us a photo and we'll share it on the blog!

To get our brains warmed up before each maths lesson, we complete the daily number challenge. In class, children usually complete this work on a whiteboard with the questions displayed on the board. I have created a printable worksheet for you to use at home or just have a go on paper. Simply choose a two-digit number and challenge your child to complete the mild, hot and spicy questions!

White Rose Year 3 Home Learning

The White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group. They will be adding five more each week for the next few weeks which will cover the learning we would have been doing in Aslan class. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you how to help your child to complete the activity successfully. The first five lessons cover what we were learning in school last week and might be a useful starting point for children's learning at home.

Fantastic Fractions

Monday 23rd March

LO. To find a unit fraction of an amount practically

Remember to:

- Draw a bar model

- Divide your bar model into the correct number of parts (the denominator)

- Share the amount fairly

- Count how much is in one part

Tuesday 24th March

LO. To find a non-unit fraction of an amount practically

Remember to:

- Draw a bar model

- Divide your bar model into the correct number of parts (the denominator)

- Share the amount fairly

- Count how much is in the number of parts you want (the numerator)

In this video we look at finding fractions of amounts for both unit and non-unit fractions. Watch the video and have a go at the questions!

My turn:

Have a go at these Smarties problems...

And just as you would in class, have a go at today's mild, hot and spicy challenges!
There is a printable version below if you would like to use it.
Extra practise!

Wednesday 25th March

LO. To find a fraction of a (larger!) amount

Remember to:

- Share the tens fairly (10s)

- Share the ones fairly (1s)

- Count how much is in the number of parts you want (the numerator) "Times by the top!"

Here's Amber recapping how we work out non-unit fractions of amounts using a bar model to help us. Watch this first to warm you brain up then we will look at finding a fraction of a larger number in my video.

Thursday 26th March

Good morning, Year 3. Today and tomorrow were are taking another look at the expanded column method for addition.

Don't forget how useful it is to Make It and Draw It too. Even if you're super confident, drawing the problem out to check your work is a really useful skill.

LO: To add two numbers using the expanded column method

Remember To:

- place the two numbers into place value columns.

- combine your hundreds, tens and ones to find the total.

Watch Mr Earl's video below to recap how add two numbers using the expanded column method.

Friday 27th March

LO: To add two numbers using the expanded column method

Remember To:

- place the two numbers into place value columns.

Watch Mr Earl's second video below and have a go at the questions.

Extra fraction questions can be found at https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ where you can also find useful teaching videos.

Hi Aslans,

We're missing teaching you and it feels very strange not seeing your smiley faces every day. I'm sure some of you are feeling the same but try to keep yourselves busy and occupied with exciting activities. You could try keeping a diary of everything you've been up to so you can share it with your classmates when we're back in school. I have been amazed by the fantastic artwork you have been sending in which can now be seen on our online art gallery!

Just a reminder, today was the last day of the Spring 2 half-term so the daily lessons will pause over the Easter period. We'll be back with more daily Maths for you on Tuesday 14th April. Until then, keep practising what we've done so far and explore the other activities on the blog.

Keep smiling and we'll see you all soon!

Terrific Time

Tuesday 14th April

LO. To be able to tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes

Remember to:

- Make each time using my clock

- Draw the hour hand showing which hour we have just moved past

- Draw the minute hand showing how many minutes past the hour or how many minutes until the next hour.

- Check that my clock shows the time it is supposed to!

Today's Challenges...

For extra practise, you could use your homemade clock to play a game of 'Stop the Clock'.

Start at 6 o'clock.

Take it in turns to roll a dice and move the minute hand forwards...

1 = 5 minutes                 2 = 10 minutes                     3 = 5 minutes

4 = 15 minutes               5 = 20 minutes                     6 = 10 minutes

The winner is the first person to get to 12 o'clock.

You could also play the telling the time game which we used in class.

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/116/telling-the-time

Wednesday 15th April

LO. To be able to solve problems involving duration

Remember to:

- record the missing piece of information

* You can of course jump forwards or backwards in larger jumps if you're feeling confident!

Today, we are going to have a look at what Miss Wieczorek has been getting up to and working out how long her activities lasted, what time they finished and what time they started. You can use the worksheet below to help you answer the questions in the video or just do your working on a piece of paper or in a book like I did.

1. Work through the problems in the video.

2. Try today's challenges (below)

3. Keep a diary of the activities you do today including what time they start, how long they last for and what time they finish. You can upload a photo of your homemade clock as well as telling us about your day by clicking here.

There are four sheets attached below for you to practise with, but first, why don't you have a go at writing the Fact Family for 2 x 40 = ?? and then have a look at my working out below to see if you were right.

## [CLIC Tests]

First of all: wow! We were so impressed with some of your scores from two weeks ago. Some people had clearly set themselves a challenge because we had several children who started with their cuurent CLIC level and then went on to give the next level a go! Well done.

If you've been following along with our maths lessons this week, then you will be ready to tackle those multiplication problems by using your Fact Families and Smile Multiplication.

Which level will you get up to this week?
