Teachers would love you to ask parents send these to year group emails. Please do not upload any of your work online to any social media sites.

Please follow the correct links as given on the left. These lessons will build up skills throughout the unit and you will produce a final written piece in lesson 5.

Note for parents – these are deliberately practical lessons. In Year 3, children are not expected to be calculating equivalences using multiplication. The lessons do touch upon this but it’s important that they develop a strong visual understanding of the relative size of fractions by thinking about numerators and denominators. They will then build upon this as they move further up the school.

 

The teacher is American – she says ‘fourths’ rather than ‘quarters’!

 

Monday – equivalent fractions (1)

To work on during the lesson, you may want to print off the blank fraction bars as the bars are pre-divided for you so you don’t need to measure them out!

For question 7 on the worksheet, you may not have a partner to talk to but you can write down what you have noticed instead.

 Lesson 1 Equivalent fractions 1

Lesson 1 Answers Equivalent fractions 1

Tuesday – equivalent fractions (2)

To work on during the lesson, you may want to print off the blank fraction number lines.

The last section of the lesson (15:00 onwards) is definitely more of a challenge. If this is a step too far for you at the moment, don’t worry.

For question 5d on the worksheet, challenge yourself to find one more fraction for each shape instead of comparing with a partner.

 Lesson 2 Equivalent fractions 2

Lesson 2 Answers Equivalent fractions 2

Wednesday – equivalent fractions (3)

It will be useful to either print the fraction wall or to have it up on your screen for this lesson. A ruler (or other straight object) will be helpful in identifying equivalences.

 Lesson 3 Equivalent fractions 3

Lesson 3 Answers Equivalent_fractions 3

Thursday – comparing fractions

The fraction bars from Monday will be helpful here.

 Lesson 4 Compare fractions

Term 5

English Week 5

We always encourage all children to read at home and we know many of you have many lovely books to read. In order for your child to continue being able to read book banded reading books selected at their level of reading ability, your child now has an account with Bug Club https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0 where they have been allocated reading books based on their book band or reading age. They have books to read in ‘My Stuff’ and then after completing all of the activities based on the books, they will go into ‘My Library’ to read. Please use our pupil guide below to help you navigate Bug Club. You should have received their username and password through an announcement on Class Charts (the school code is popr). If you have not received this, or have trouble accessing the site, please email your child's year group address.

We recommend reading 1 or 2 books a week rather than racing ahead - quality reading rather than quantity will help you improve your reading more. The first reading should focus on decoding, the second reading will focus on comprehension and completing the activities and try some reading with prosody (intonation, pitch and expression) for a few pages too when you read aloud.

Home learning packs are also available from the Hamilton Trust https://www.hamilton-trust.org.uk/blog/learning-home-packs/

Each pack contains 5 days of mixed reading, grammar, spelling and writing opportunities, planned around a weekly theme. Some days contain a lot of activities so please don't feel pressured to complete everything. Notes for parents and carers are included, as well as sheets which can be printed for children to work on. However, this is not essential and written responses could be recorded on paper, in a notebook, or typed.

Daily Maths lessons are provided through White Rose Maths https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ which is a high-quality resource we use in school. For Years 1-6, each lesson video starts with a 'Flashback' to review prior learning, then a short tutorial video with example questions which are fully explained.

Follow-up worksheets can be downloaded below, although again, if you don't have access to a printer, these can be completed on paper. Answers are also provided so you can talk through your child's work and help them if they get stuck. For Early Years, each week is based around a story book but you don't need to have the book to do the activity.

Please also remind your child to practice their times tables recall frequently using Times Tables Rock Stars. Well done messages and house points are sent to the top 3 children in each Key Stage every Friday and many teachers set their own challenges and rewards for effort. If your child doesn't have their log-in details, please email their year group address for help.
