# Wednesday 22nd April 2020

Hello Dahl class, I hope you are enjoying beginning our work on the Anglo-Saxons and our new book 'Captain Crow's Teeth' . We will be working on this book till half term and our writing and reading activities will be based around this.

I hope you enjoy today's tasks. There are 4 activities because some are slightly shorter

Look at the picture on the front cover:
Where is the boy?
What is he wearing?
Who is grabbing him?

I would like you to write a few sentences to answer these questions.

Grammar

For today’s grammar task, I have set you a quiz on SPaG.com. The quiz is based on an element of SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) that we have already covered in class. You have already been sent your login credentials for SPaG.com via our class email so that you are able to access the quiz.

Maths

ROYG - Today you will be learning to find equivalent fractions and you will be using a number line. 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 ‘Summer Term - Week 1’ > ‘Lesson 1’ 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 make equal groups by sharing. When you share into groups, you are dividing. Remember, if the groups are equal, there must be the same amount in each group. 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 find a quarter of a shape. When you find a quarter, you halve the shape once and then halve it again. A quarter is 1 out of 4 sections of the shape. The sections must all be equal. 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).

Spelling

Homophones - Homophones are words that sound the same, but have different meanings. Today we are focussing on their, they’re and there.

Here's some tricks I use to help me use the right spelling that might not be included in the PowerPoint:

There - refers to a place or position of something e.g. the park is over there. I can remember that this spelling refers to a position or place because it contains the word 'here' in its spelling - there.

Their - refers to someone's possession or belongings. I remember this because this spelling has the letter 'i' in it - their e.g. That is their ball.

They're - is a contraction for they are. It should be used in short for the words they are e.g. They're pretty flowers. Remember the apostrophe is there in place of the 'a'. They are > They're - it is short for they are.

For today’s spelling task, I would like you to have a look at the PowerPoint attached below and learn/read through the spelling rules for these three words - they’re, their and there. These are words that are often used incorrectly in our writing so I would like us to recap and remember how each one should be used. Once you have read the PowerPoint, please look at activity sheets and fill in the correct homophone for each sentence.
