# Home learning activities for today!

Good Morning year 3!

Good morning Year 3. Day 4 and both Miss Houston and Miss Manzie have been thrilled at the amount of work going on at home, so well done! Keep up the good work.

Today activities:

• Pages 10 and 11 of your English work book
• Pages 10 and 11 of your maths work book
• 20 minutes of spelling shed

If you have finished your maths and English pages, why don’t you try these maths questions. We have been looking at strategies to help us work out a 2-digit number multiplied by a 1-digit number. One strategy we have used is the cherry model (example attached to word problems document). Choose a challenge below and use the cherry model to work it out.

 * ** *** 15 x 3 = 12 x 4 = 15 x 2 = 16 x 3 = 15 x 5 = 14 x 3 = 22 x 4 = 23 x 3 = 26 x 3 = 34 x 5 = 32 x 4 = 29 x 10 = 62 x 7 = 54 x 5 = 58 x 6 = 77 x 4 = 43 x 9 = 33 x 6 =

Extra maths challenge: If you feel confident with multiplication and division then why not try some word problems. We have attached a document that requires your help to solve some problems in the north and south pole. Good luck!

Other activities:

• Art challenge – Colouring is said to be good for your focus and helps us to relax. So for today’s activity we are going to use a love of colouring to create our own art in the style of Wassily Kandinsky. He is famous for his amazing paintings filled with colour and shapes, I have attached some of his paintings for you to have a look at. Your challenge is to use any material you like, such as card, paper, the back of a cereal box, or some newspaper. Then with a pencil draw shapes and lines however you want, then colour them in different colours to create something bright and beautiful. Take your time with this!

• PE why don’t you take a look at Mr Higgins fitness challenge for today, which is on the ‘home learning’ section of the website.

• Why not try day 4 of the Lego challenge (link on day 1 post), remember you can draw it if you don’t have any Lego.

We can’t wait to see all your work!
