Good morning, Year 3.
This week's recap is once again nice and straight-forward. I think that you can probably do it without much input from me. It's a refresh of the eight times tables.
I've attached a couple of things that might help you to count in multiples of 8 (and 80, 800), so it might be a good idea to start by counting up and down with those.
The first worksheet is a Fact Family practice. The other sheets include a word search and some multiple wheels.
* Super Challenge *
We would like you to create, direct and star in your own maths video!

- write down and practise what you are going to say
- SMILE for the camera
- (send us your video if you can!)
Take a look at Amber's videos over at Maths 4 Kids if you need some inspiration.

Have a look at the picture of the rainbow cookie above. Does this remind you of anything? (Think back to something we made in Science using play dough!)
I will post the full recipe tomorrow with the instructions :)
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.

I'm also going to use my Base 10 manipulatives to make sure that I don't have random zeros flying around all over the place. You'll notice that the 40 stays as a 40 and the 2 stays as a 2.
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.

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 Miss Morecroft 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.

- check that your clock shows the time it is supposed to!
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.

Good morning, Year 3. Today are taking another look at the expanded column method for addition, specifically looking at what happens when we need to exchange 10 ones for a ten and 10 tens for a hundred.
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.
Most people will be able to start on two spicy peppers today and move onto a really hot three pepper challenge, but there are some mild problems there too if you need a bit of extra practice exchanging for that first hundred.
LO: To be able to add using the expanded column method.
Remember To:
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, explore the other activites that we've sign-posted you towards and keep an eye out for some posts in our wider curriculum home learning sections.
Thanks,
