Below, Habeeb, Isaac and the tortoise are having a discussion.

They all think they can make equal groups.

How many black circles are there altogether?

Can you make 2 equal groups?

Can you make 4 equal groups?

Can you make 3 equal groups?

Who is correct?

Why could the tortoise not make equal groups?

SMART Write:

This week I would like for us to plan and write a "Festive Holiday Recount".

We are going to use the first part of the week to plan the sections; build our language and finally, write our recount. 

Activity 1:

We are going to use a skeleton to plan our recount. Below is an example of what to include in the plan:

THINK

What did you do over the holiday? Choose one day that was eventful and you would like to share wit the rest of Year 3. 

Introduction (first bubble):

When did it happen?

Where did it happen?

Who was involved?

Why was it important?

The main body (the straight line):

Now use time conjunctions to order the events of the day in order.

Was there any important things that happened?

Who was there?

What was the weather like?

Was it snowing?

Conclusion (last bubble):

What happened in the end?

Use the image below to create your very own "Festive Holiday recount" plan.

Day 2

Mathematics

 

WALT: use the multiplication symbol. 

Starter:

Before we begin, below you have continuing sequences to complete to help warm up your brains.

Teaching and Learning:

Below the pictorial example is made up of cubes.

There are 3 equal (being the same in quantity) groups. 

In each group we have 4 cubes.

We can write this as a multiplication calculation:

4 x 3 = 12 or 3 x 4 = 12 (we call this commutative property of multiplication, which means we can have it in any order)

or...

we can write it as a repeated addition:

4 + 4 + 4 = 12

Your turn...

Use the above example to support you...

1) write this as a multiplication.

2) write this as a repeated addition.

Complete the following activity sheet...

English

Please read the text and complete the following comprehension questions. 

Abdul- Kareem, Shayan, Intisar, Aman, Isaac, Shamsul, Safa K, Sonia, Zara, Iman, Safaa H, Yusuf, Alia, Habeeb you have additional questions to complete below numbered 1 - 5.

Remember your steps:

1) Read and understand the question.

2) Underline the keywords in the question.

3) Scan the text for the keywords.

4) Read around the keyword to find the answer.

Smart Write

Activity 1

 

1) Read the introduction.

There are missing Capital Letters and Full stops. 

2) I would like you to read and edit the text so it has the correct use of both capital letters and full stops.

Remember:

we use capital letters for proper nouns and the beginning of sentences.

We use a full stop to show the reader a point has been made and you are going to move on.

Activity 2

Today we are going to use the plan from yesterday and the above model write to write your own introduction.

The grammar focus will be the correct use of capital letters - at the beginning of sentence or through the use of proper nouns - and full stops to indicate the end of a point. 

Introduction:

When did it happen?

Where did it happen?

Who was involved?

Why was it important?

I look forward to reading your introductions. Email me at: m.kasir@redhill.bham.sch.uk 

Geography

Use the atlas (below) and the blank map of Europe to locate and label both the United Kingdom and Greece.

Challenge: can you edit the map of the United Kingdom to correctly label England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We learnt this in Autumn 1.

CTG: what is the capital city of England and can you label it on the map?
