We are continuing with our topic this week in Maths which is Addition and Subtraction. For each day you will find a Varied Fluency sheet and a Problem Solving and Reasoning sheet. These sheets are differentiated so you do not need to complete all of them. Just select one Varied fluency and one problem solving and reasoning for each day.
To help you choose what sheet your child needs here is a guide to what each level means:
A red star sheet= developing (challenge level is easier)
A blue star sheet= expected (this is the level we are expecting in Year 3)
A gold star sheet= greater depth (mastery level and this is challenging)
Each day you can use the White Rose Maths link to find the corresponding video. This gives you examples of the questions and helps to explain what you need to do. To find the video, follow the link provided and then look for the video which has the same title as your worksheet.
There are also Oak Academy videos to watch which is also to help support your child. Example questions have also been put together on a weekly copy of the PowerPoint slides to practice before completing the 2 sheets for each day.
For this week we are continuing to look at a topic 'Poetry!' We will be writing our very own poems based on the poem 'When I grow up I want to be...' You will read this poem, reflect on your favourite stanza and think about 3 jobs you would like to do when you are older and make them into stanzas of your poem! If you are struggling with any of the tasks or just want to learn more about poetry just click on the star below as you will find some really interesting videos!
You will also find a SPaG activity and relevant PowerPoint Slides. These sheets are similar to Maths where you have a varied fluency and application and reasoning. These are differentiated so you need to select which level you want to try for varied fluency and Application and Reasoning!
