L.O: to solve word problems


Well done for your great work on scales last week. This week we will be using our knowledge of weight in a different context. We will be solving word problems involving weight.


To start with answer your ‘In Focus’ question which is on the first page. As we would normally discuss this with our partners at school, see if there is an adult or older brother or sister to talk to about it. Please use the box on this page record your answer and methods.


Next look at the ‘Guided Practice’ which shows you some of the different style questions. I have left the answers on the worksheet so you can see the setting out and how to go about answering these types of questions. In the examples today we have used bar models to help us work out the answers, you could do it this way or your own way.


Now it is your turn! Have a go at the ‘Independent Practice’ which is a copy of the worksheet that you would have completed in your MNP workbooks at school. Use the column method to help with your problems. If you feel up for it, have a go at the challenge! Good luck!


Please could you email this piece of work to me.

Both files are the same but as PDF and word document to help you


L.O: to ask questions


Reread our sci-fi story, ‘A Tale of Two Robots’ to remind yourself of what happened in the story.


For your task today, imagine Callum was here now, what would you ask him? Come up with five questions that you would like to ask Callum to find out more information. Think about what words we start our questions with: how, why, what etc.


When you think of your questions make sure they are useful ones that will help us gather important information.

What is your favourite colour? This will not help us!

What did you decide to invent a robot? This gives us so helpful information!


Please could you email this piece of work to me.


Although we are in lockdown, the expectation is for the children to still read 3 times a week for 10 minutes. Below is instructions and a link to oxford owl where an account has been created to provide the children with some ebooks.

L.O: to make inferences


For reading this week we are going to be trying a new website called ‘Fiction Express’. You each have your own log in which I will be sending to your adults to give to you. I will send it via marvellous me – if it doesn’t come through please email me at year3@leigh.covmat.org and I will send it to you on email.


As we studied Romans as part of History last term, I have chosen the book, ‘Maximus Gladiator, by David Macphail. Today you need to read the first chapter, ‘The school trip’. At the end of the chapter, you will be asked to vote about what you think Max should do now.


As you read, you will notice that some of the words are underlined with dots. When you click on these words you will get a definition of what that word means to help you.


For your task today, after reading the first chapter I would like you to answer these questions:

What type of story do you think this is going to be?

What does Tina Snitch’s name suggest about her?

How do we know that Max likes to play tricks on people?


L.O: to know how land in temperate climate zones is used to produce food


Last Monday we began our new Geography topic of ‘Where does our food come from?’.


Read the slides. Do you remember what the hemispheres are? Think back to our last lesson. Look at the slides recapping information about the hemispheres.

Look at the world map showing the different climates. Then you will read all about a farm in the USA which produces wheat.


For your work today you have a ‘Travelling Through Time Zones’ sheet. Read through it carefully and cut out or write out the stages of wheat harvesting process but position in the correct order. The slides will help you with this! If you would like an extra challenge, you could also draw a picture of each step next to the writing.


Please could you email this piece of work to me.


L.O: to understand pulse and rhythm


Today’s music lesson will be an Oak National Academy video about understanding pulse and rhythm taught by Mr Palekar.


This will require lots of singing, clapping and clicking so make sure you are somewhere where you will not disturb anyone!
