Primary 3 Wednesday 22nd April 2020

Good morning Primary Three, I hope we are all managing to access all of the resources so far and are having fun trying out the music resource from Monday’s blog post. No-one has said they had any problems with the multiplication in Maths involving carrying, but please let us know if you need a little refresher on this and we will be happy to post a little reminder.

Just a quick reminder of login details for the reading resource: then go to my class login.

An assignment has gone live for this week’s word boost words. If you have access to Teams, watch and listen to the story then see if you can write the definitions of the word boost words. The pdf of the power point we use on a Thursday will go up tomorrow with the answers!

Just for information, today also marks the 50th anniversary of World Earth Day.

Go to Have a look at the Earth Day Live Global Programme on this page to see if anything takes your fancy throughout the day! There are speakers, performances, meditation and street art, with everyone taking part, fighting to stop climate change.

Some shape based maths for you to try today:

Writing: Our topic this term is technology. Can you write a short story about what it might be like to be a robot being switched on for the first time? (think C3PO in The Phantom Menace). What would you see, who would you see, what would you feel and think? What would you do in your first day as a robot? What type of robot are you, could you describe yourself? How would you describe the world around you?

During Number Talks and numeracy we have started to look at multiplying with carrying and so here is a short video explaining carrying with a simple sum. It is the first time we’ve tried to record like this so hopefully it’ll work!
