# Tuesday 21st April 2020

Hello Dahl class, I am really pleased to hear that lots of you had a lovely Easter break.

I want to reassure you that I understand that working from home is going to be strange and difficult, especially after having a 2 week break for Easter. Do remember I am here to help you if you are finding any of the work tricky. If you email our class email, explaining which question or piece of work you are stuck with, I will film a video of myself explaining the task or showing an example of how to find the answer, just like we would in class. Remember I am here to help! Keep up all your hard work - I am really proud of the way that all of you are being resilient during this challenging time!

The author is Eoin Colfer. I would like you to write a mini-biography all about the author. Remember, a biography is a detailed description of a person's life, with facts, background information and stories from their life. Please remember writing skills to include in your writing (capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and conjunctions: and, so, but, because, that, although, even though, however, as well as).

Below are some areas I would like you to find out about:

• Early life and childhood -  birth date, where they lived, upbringing, school life, homelife.
• Adulthood - training, jobs, path to fame.
• Later Life - getting older, retirement.

Maths

ROYG - Today you will be learning to find equivalent fractions. Remember the word equivalent means equal or the same. Follow this link (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/) to a video that should explain things clearly for you. Click ‘Week 2’ > ‘Lesson 5’ and watch the video. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

B2 - Today you will be learning to multiply using the 10 times table. Make sure you count in 10’s to find the answer and remember the multiplication sign means ‘lots of’. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

B1 - Today you will be learning to halve a quantity. When you halve a quantity it is the same as sharing into two groups - we have worked on this in class before. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

Handwriting

Today you will be learning to space letters consistently. This means that there is even spacing between each letter. There should not be some letter joined closely and some more spread apart.

Attached is an example of how I have used a highlighter to help me form the letters, with ascenders and descenders properly, as you do not have your handwriting books with the different printed lines to help you. If you have access to a highlighter, you can highlight straight across the line, so that you can position the main part of the letter in the highlighted area. Ascenders should come above the line and descenders should drop below the line as shown.

You will need to follow the activities on the pages of the handwriting book. This will be best completed on lined paper, like you would find in a notebook.
