Week 7 (w/c 1/6/20) Both Groups
From the selection of revision subtraction activities below, please choose only those that your P3 feels comfortable with. Relevant pages from NHM Check-ups booklet are: 4, 5, 6, 12 and 13. Also, please look at any uncompleted pages in booklets 'Addition and Subtraction to 20' and 'Addition and Subtraction to 100'. Please also try to include some word problems this week.....they are very useful practice for applying subtraction skills.
Week 7 …..continued - CAPACITY (the litre)
To follow are the teacher's notes for our work on capacity. We always leave this unit until the third term as it is nice (and less messy!) to do it outside. Pages 15 and 16 of NHM booklet 'Shape, Measure and Data Handling' can act as a guide. The essentials here are that a) your P3 understands that we can use litres to measure liquid b) your P3 has opportunities to estimate and measure using different containers.
SMALL GROUP - Counting in 5s then Repeated Addition
After a lot of practice with counting in 5s and repeated addition, your P3 may be ready for 'Groups of'. We prefer to talk about 'groups of' in P3 which is preferable to 'multiplied by' or 'times'. It keeps this topic more concrete and relevant. Every time they write this brand new sign (x) they say 'groups of' eg. 2 x 5 = 10 'two groups of 5 is 10'. Using small objects around the house (eg Cheerios, shreddies etc) set out groups of 5 to write down all multiples of 5 to 60.
Percy Parker helps P3 every year to learn their tables. Have a listen....your life may never be the same again!
WEEK 9 (w/c 15/6)
This week we will be continuing to practise our 5 x table. I'll post some more activities to help consolidate these facts. Further counting in 5s to 60 will also be useful. Alongside this, we will be looking forward to P4 and beginning to understand numbers to 1000 (3 digit numbers).
MAIN GROUP - Introduction of numbers to 1000
SMALL GROUP - Numbers to 100
Please revise numbers, sequences, comparing and ordering numbers to 100. If there are pages in NHM booklet 'Numbers to 100, then 1000'to complete, please do these. Your P3 will really benefit from consolidation of this area and will prepare them well for P4 Maths.
I have allocated some activities on Active Learn. The activities to help practise numbers to 100 are: 'Two Spinners', 'That Number Square' and '100 square Jigsaw'.
BOTH GROUPS: COUNTING in 10s
Don't do ALL of these.....pick a selection!
SMALL GROUP - HALVING to 20
To begin this concept of halving it is useful to demonstrate using concrete objects like counters or Cheerios - anything small that you have plenty of! Split amounts into 2 equal groups (with the emphasis on the equal, ie one for you, one for me..)
