Monday 8th February
Good morning, Year 3. I hope you have all had an enjoyable weekend.
This week I would like to set you all a challenge to improve your recall of the 2, 5 and 10 times table. Practice these tables everyday and ask an adult to test you on them daily.
Our top spellers for last week were:
Well done to you all.

Today, you will be writing your build up and problem paragraphs. I have included two videos. Listen carefully and follow the instructions.
Because I have set you all the challenge to improve your recall of times table facts this week, I would like you to complete a times table speed test today. Please complete the calculations below and ask an adult to time you. On Friday, you will repeat this task and I would like to see you all either improve your time taken or the amount of facts that you can answer.
|x 2||x 5||x 10|
|2 x 2 =||2 x 5 =||2 x 10 =|
|8 x 2 =||8 x 5 =||8 x 10 =|

Examples to think about: Did more children in class 2 vote for any of the flavours than those in class 1? Which flavour? How many more voted?
How many children voted in each class? Who had more children? How many more?
Today in reading, you will be focussing on developing accurate retrieval skills. Remember for retrieval questions, you can find and pick the answer straight from the text.
Read the text below and answer the questions.
Today, you will be learning about tornadoes. Use the links below to find out more about these.
For your task I would like to to create an informative poster about tornadoes using all of the facts you have learned this afternoon. Use pictures and present your information in an eye catching and interesting way.
Well done, Year 3. You have completed Monday’s home learning. Now it is time to relax with a story.
