Good Morning Swans'
Almost another week done. You're all doing so well. I have been so impressed with the work I've seen. Thank you to all of you who sent in your complex sentences - they are great!
Spelling and time table quiz today! Aim high!
New spellings to learn and of course time table practise.
Iron Age hillforts this afternoon - enjoy :)
REMEMBER to complete your daily expected activities... including movement of some sort :)
English - new spellings
WOW: with the short /i/ sound spelt with a /y/.
Last week you practised spelling the year 3 statutory words. QUIZ: Ask an adult to quiz you on these spellings - did you get 10/10?
This week we are looking at spelling words with the short /i/ sound spelt with a /y/.
Work through the power point and then complete at least TWO of the activities below.
WOW: practise and learn our times table targets.
1. COMPLETE QUIZ - ask an adult to quiz you on your times table target.
You will need to choose one sheet to complete your quiz on below depending on whether you are working on an 'in order' or an 'out of order' times table target. Use this format (same as we use in school) to complete your quiz.
REMEMBER! You are only allowed 3 mins to complete the quiz and you must get 40/40 to move on to the next times table target.
2. MARK YOUR QUIZ using the multiplication charts below - use a different colour and correct any answers you get wrong.
3. PRACTISE your new times table target or your existing target if you didn't get 40/40.
The order you will learn and practise your times tables are listed below:
X2, X5, X10, X3, X4, X6, X8
OUT OF ORDER:
X2, X5, X10, X3, X4, X6, X8
Please use this extra time wisely and practise your target times table ready for the quiz NEXT Friday (15.01.20).
Use the following strategies to help you practise:
1. Practise writing the times tables out in your homework book - can you present them in fun ways to help you remember them?
2. Practise chanting the times table you are working on, e.g. 1X2 = 2, 2X2 =4, 3X2=6 and so on.
3. Ask an adult to test you by asking you random sums, e.g. if you are practise your X2 they might say: 1x2 or 2x2 or 3x2
4. You could use an I -pad or computer to practise on the following websites /APPS below:
WOW: understand how and why hillforts were developed in the Iron Age.
This week you will be learning about the Iron Age with a particular focus on hillforts. Work through the power point and then get creative by making an information book / booklet about at least ONE or more famous hillforts. This means means your booklet can be about ONE SPECIFIC hillfort OR it can be about hillforts in general.
Below there are lots of helpful resources to help you do this, including general information sentences about hillforts and information sheets about Danebury and Maiden Castle.
How you present your booklet is up to you, however there is help and advice of the last few slides of the presentation to guide you.
